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.

We had read that Crop Bistro was located in an old bank branch but didn't quite know what to expect when we stepped into the restaurant. We were floored! The room is massive (perhaps too big) with an enormous ceiling, gilded columns, mirrors and a gorgeous bar. The building was built in 1925 and oozes character from that era. We... More

There was a 20 minute wait for lunch at our first choice "Great Lakes Brewery" so our group wondered over to Crop to check out the interior. Grand and visually stunning we decided to dine and was immediately seated. Great craft beer choices quickly quelled any grumbling about not waiting out G.L.B. We chose several items off the lunch menu... More

The food was to die for. we basically had a little taste of everything on the... More

Love, love, love this place! Once you walk inside it’s obvious that the building was a former bank (constructed in the 1920’s) because much of the original structure and design is intact. Diners can enjoy the high coffered ceilings, arched windows, marble columns and a massive mural on the wall above the bar. This grand cavernous stone and marble main... More

In town for a weekend from Toronto, my boyfriend and I read about Crop Bistro on a few websites. Although more than we intended to spend on our meal, it was well worth it. The restaurant is in an old bank and is simply stunning! The cocktail list is quite extensive and interesting. We started with two appetizers: the calamari... More

A delightful locale, with the noise as part of the distinct ambiance. Ample nearby parking + valet parking for those who want it. Service was very good. The Foie Gras was superb -- one of the best I've ever had. The rack of lamb was tasty, the Rib eye steak was tasteless, but for a slight bitter taste, the cheese... More
