They food here is very good with exceptional plating. They don't offer a wide variety of options but the offerings they do have are well done. I have eaten there for lunch and dinner (liked the lunch offerings more) and both were excellent. The venue is great and worth going for at least a drink so you can see the... More

This is a super cool old building but the acoustics are bad. The food and drinks are pricey but good. Overall, a good dining experience and I was happy to know that a lot of the ingredients used are local, etc.

Located inside an old bank with soaring, decorated ceilings and a walk in vault....really neat except very noisy, kinda cold and stark. Felt like I was applying for a mortgage. Menu was limited and the pork had a odd tasting sauce/marinade. Would stop in for a drink and then dine elsewhere in the 'hood.

What a lovely building. Staff was very helpful and accommodating. The hostess took us on a tour of the vault which is now a private dinning area. The main dinning room is beautiful as it was once a former bank in the 1920's. Ceiling and mural are gorgeous. The food was great and service was good.

In a strikingly unusual venue in an up-and-coming neighborhood of Cleveland, the Crop Bistro promises a great experience. Menu selections are imaginative. I was generally satisfied with the food, well prepared with surprising twists and exotic sauces. Service, however, did not at all come up to snuff. Part of the problem is the enormous size of the venue -- some... More

Something is off at Crop and I cannot put my finger on what it is. The building is beautiful, the staff attentive although some are somewhat "rough and ready". The food was good but....something is wrong. Foie gras excellent. Deep fried calamari (from frozen?) had same too mayonnaisy cole slaw as the seared tuna. No acidity to cut the richness... More

We celebrated our anniversary at this restaurant, a former bank--beautiful, historic spot in Ohio City. We had a delicious dinner (ribeye) and our server was wonderful. Everyone was friendly and we even got a tour of the old vault! Highly recommend!

This is by far the WORST venue there is. Ursula and her staff were so unaccomodating. She would promise you something and the next time you talk with her she would say she couldn't deliver or if she did it would be at a premium. We were promised so many things over and over again and they did not deliver.... More

Our Private Event Director exemplifies the utmost in professionalism and provides exemplary customer service to our guests. It was unfortunate that we were unable to accommodate your wedding as we place decorum above all else and do not condone insults and profanity to be directed at our owner or our team members. We were happy to hear that the Intercontinental... More

The meal was wonderful and the staff were most accommodating. The true measure of business is how well it recovers from adversity. One meal was not cooked to specification, not serious enough to return it but still not to spec. The staff went to great length to make up for the fact that we were not perfectly happy. I would...

The food was spectacular. The atmosphere is also spectacular. I felt like the wait staff could have been a little more attentive. I asked for lemon for my water and never got it. I also asked for a box from the start because I didn't want to eat the whole thing. I had to ask for the box a second... More
