Good Food

All of the food I tried was very good, especially the chicken and waffles. The service was spotty at times but adequate. This restaurant is very good, just not great in my opinion. The atmosphere is very cool.

Crop is a former bank converted into a restaurant. The decor is magnificent. The ornate ceiling offers awe and beauty. The food is also excellent. The butternut squash soup was great. The pork chop dish was fantastic: it's large enough to split with 2 people. The service was on par with a fine-dining establishment. I enjoyed Crop

one of my favorite spots in Cleveland for both the quality of food and service not to mention one of the most unique dining rooms in the city. This converted bank also has a vault downstairs that you can rent out for groups/parties, very cool space. Our server, Amy, was first rate and very personable without overdoing it. I'd highly...

This restaurant is located in Ohio city in an old bank which includes a bank vault, great for huge parties. We had a lovely table on the floor right in the middle of restaurant. Seating anywhere in this restaurant is wonderful. Oh yes and before you have dinner, you can visit Penzey Spice which is located in front of this... More

Fabulous, prix fixe, 9 course dinner! Not only was the food imaginative, savory, and presented beautifully, the wait staff was attentive and extremely helpful. Especially important as New Year's Eve can bring out the extremes in patrons. Terrific experience and I wholeheartedly recommend Crop Bistro.

We went to Crop right before a jazz concert and since This was our first time, we were excited try it out. We were NOT disappointed. The service was great and the food was basically amazing. Some dishes were just ok (deviled egg appetizer was not nearly as good as my wife's, but still basically good). We also tried the... More

Great food and Service! They are located in an old bank which makes for an excellent experience and setting however the acoustics aren't the best. If you can reserve the private 'vault' room located in the basement.

If this was simply a review of Crop's food and atmosphere it would be 5 stars no doubt. Crop is in an old renovated Bank building with huge vaulted ceilings with breathtaking carvings, large pillars through the restaurant, and marble everywhere. Both cool and lovely. The food was unbelievable, layers and layers of flavor. The chile deviled eggs with crispy... More

We were disappointed in the food at Crop. The pork chop with acorn squash was swimming in a cream sauce, the fllavors were very strong, It was a very "busy" entree - just trying to do too much and made it not very good in appearance or taste. The salmon was served over black and white quinoa. I'm not really... More

Early dinner reservation turned into sitting at the bar and ordering from there! Attentive service (but not stifling), friendly staff, vintage setting in an old bank building that invoked feelings of grandeur and sanctuary: an architectural delight! Actually the entire evening was really quite lovely --- staff, service, atmosphere were all wonderful! We ordered the salmon and the walleye; the... More
