“Superb service”
Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

We received wonderful service here on a Friday night. Good advice on the wines and food which were both excellent. Unfortunately the weather wasn't so good or we would have sat outside but inside was just fine.

“Innovative lunching in Perth”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

After a morning walking around the city, The Greenhouse was a great relaxing lunch spot, just a street back from the main shopping area. We very much enjoyed our selection of dishes accompanied by a Margaret River Pinot Noir. Our choices were home soudough with cultured butter, fried Kipfler potatoes with aioli, goat's cheese and mushroom croquettes, and pink snapper with shaved fennel. Our long black and decaf long black were very good. The structure and fittings including chairs and tables, are a point of difference with much ot this made from recycled material. Interesting touches, include serving some dishes in terracotta plant saucers. Our helpful and friendly Tasmanian waiter, described how the vertical gardens on the outside walls survive naturally. A happy experience.

“Great breakfast”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

I love having breakfast here on my way to the office, sitting to read the paper and enjoying great food. The staff are really friendly and they serve great coffee.

“Quirky place, woeful service”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

We popped into the Greenhouse on St. Georges Tce, we'd heard a lot about the place and read about it in the press.
It was 4pm and not very busy at all, the wait staff of 6 almost out numbered the customers, if you count the kitchen staff then they definitely did. It took almost 5 minutes to attract someones attention to ask for a drink, another 5 minutes to come back with a menu and a further 10 minutes to finally deliver my glass of wine. I wouldn't mind if it was busy, but there where people hanging around doing nothing.
Eventually we ordered something to eat from the limited menu, it's an odd menu with ever increasing prices, $45 for a steak is a bit rich in a recycled pub-ish thing, we ordered the Cajun chicken which was fantastic and a small pizza, which was quite good as well.
It's a shame the service was so rubbish, this place could really be good if someone took control of it and shook it up a bit.

“Avoiding the customer is never a good thing”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

How hard is it to make eye contact and acknowledge a customer when they are trying to get your attention to get a menu and later to order. Not taking notes is okay if you are able to retain the order in your head but please do not come back multiple times and ask. When you visit a table with empty dishes, maybe take some with you. Having a central point for payment is okay, but staffing it is appreciated - we almost left without paying since no-one wanted to take our money.
Overall, the food was great but would be reluctant to return to dine in - maybe take away instead.
