Great food, elegant decor, flawless service and a sense of humor. That's Crop. A menu that made it hard to chose between macaroni and cheese topped with brisket, a modern pho or fresh grilled swordfish. Or would you try the daily special which they call A Pile of Crop and just happened to be pasta in traditional Bolognaise sauce? We... More

Celebrated a 25th anniversary with the family, greeted by valet and host staff were very friendly and welcoming. Our server was not overly friendly, our 25th was never mentioned, our server was either very busy of just dis-engaged with us, I had to ask for another round of drinks, water glasses were not very well attended, Every entrée we ordered...

We were treated to dinner at Crop and we couldn't have been more pleased. The building is a former bank with gorgeous murals on the walls and a patterend ceiling. My only criticism is that it is really loud when it's full. The Summer Breeze martini is perfection in a martini glass. I had the Korean short rib over rice... More

The service was unacceptable on our visit. We were greeted by an unsmiling hostess on entry and seated at our choice of tables, since the restaurant was not crowded. As more diners arrived, we were surprised that the hostess tended to seat all of us in one area, when there were empty tables everywhere. I saw one business couple seated... More

Wildly over rated. The space while interesting is very loud and unless you are with a large group, difficult for conversation. Service is poor, not due to the staff, but rather their lack of management and training. The food is over sauced and as a result is difficult to assess. There is a pretend aspect here to being a star... More

Crop Bistro is a must visit for any foodie or someone just looking for a superbly prepared meal and/or a great cocktail. Located in an old bank, the space is expansive, so it can be noisy, especially during the dinner hours. Perhaps that is the only downside as the food has always been excellent. As a local Clevelander this is... More

If you're in Cleveland, but Crop Bistro on your list. We wound up going because we couldn't get into the wildly popular Lola, and we were not disappointed in the least. The building is stunning -- an old bank building with 35 foot ceilings and a decorative ceiling. Really well decorated inside. Beautiful yet comfortable. The menu isn't huge but... More

Cozy it isn't - but the super over-the-top old bank lobby (look up at the ceilings) is an interesting place for creating a restaurant. It was fairly empty even though we arrived at the height of the lunch rush. I'm not sure what to make of the smallish crowd inside... We were seated in the main (huge) room and were... More

My wife and I joined her aunt, uncle and cousin, who live in Ohio City, and we pulled up our chairs at Crop after making reservations. It was a Saturday night, the place was jammed...and that certainly added to the noise level. It was so noisy that we had to lean in towards each other in an attempt to participate... More

What a great restaurant. Great food, great service, great wines, and a great atmosphere. Was in Cleveland for 9 nights and went there on 3 occasions. Just a beautiful welcoming and warm place with excellent food and wine in an astounding location. Recommend it to everyone.
