Excellent service, beautiful restaurant, we loved all of the suggestions. The cocktails and charcuterie were excellent, really good mortadella. The one thing a lacking was the pasta, a little overdone and lackluster compared to the rest of the dishes we tried

A hidden little place next to a couple of labs. A very discrete area but the ambiance is quite nice. Tall, glass, and airy. It was a refreshing space. Service was consistent and quick. Everyone was quite nice. The food was standard. Pasta good, but it didn't really stand out. My friends had the skirt steak and the salmon. I got a very good review of the salmon. She praised the sear and the taste. Not so much for the steak itself. She said it needed seasoning but the vegetables were very good.

We went on our first anniversary. I reserved a table before and was offered a high top table(there were few other low tables empty). During reservation, i wasn't asked what type of table i want. We asked if we could get the lower tables but didn't get at the first. We sat on the high top and ordered a drink. My wife was uncomfortable 😕 so we asked again if we could switch, or else we were ready to leave. We finally got the low table. 🙌. Thanks to the server who helped us. But we had to go through hassle on my 1st anniversary. The atmosphere was great. Cocktails were really good (5/5). Appetizer fried oysters was good, but Entrée was JUST OK. I had the salmon, which was salty on the skin. (3/5) Bit overpriced for the food.

We went to Glasshouse kitchen for my birthday dinner. It's a beautiful restaurant and the atmosphere gets five stars. The food options are limited - Especially vegetarian entrées, but there were a bunch of vegetarian sides. The cocktails are spectacular. Unique and curated carefully! Overall definitely worth a visit for a special occasion!

Service: 5 stars. Food: 4 stars. TL;DR very good experience. Notes on the food: The beef cheeks were good, a little on the rich side and kind of one note. Oysters were fried well but the breading lacked flavor. The dish really relies on the kimchi and cilantro lime to deliver on the flavor. This is a matter of personal preference, but I prefer kimchi cold and it was served room temp/luke warm. The skirt steak was seasoned so heavily you couldn't really appreciate the meat fully. Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream was light and delicious. Bartender made me a fantastic Tom Collins.

Let me start by saying this place is AMAZING! The location is stunning. Glasshouse is the perfect name for such a beautiful glass building. Upscale atmosphere with truly amazing food and killer drinks. I was there for a hosted tasting with Scottie Pippen himself. They serve breakfast on occasion, lunch, and dinner. Your price point is 20/30 during lunch and closer to 35/50 during dinner. You can expect a little more laid back lunch vibe as it’s catered towards your business lunch goers. Dinner is all out magnificent and you may want to wear a collard shirt, although I don’t believe it’s required! I urge you to put a visit here on the calendar. The GM Jim was a real standup gentlemen who clearly cares a lot about his restaurant. Thank you Glasshouse for hosting a spectacular time!

Such a lovely restaurant! The food was soooo delicious and the place was beautifully decorated! I love the large windows, brings a lot of brightness inside. The service was great and you can’t go wrong with anything you order. First time here today for brunch, got the Kentucky Brunch as my cocktail, ordered the smoked fish dip as an appetizer, the chicken biscuit as my meal, and my husband got the brunch burger. Everything was delicious!!! We loved it and can’t wait to come back and recommend it to others :)

Beautiful restaurant with amazing brunch menu. We had made booking for 4 adults for Sunday brunch. However, we had two kids join us. The restaurant staff was sweet and was kind enough to adjust our reservation. We would recommend all the dishes we ordered. We ordered the following: 1. Avocado toast (the ginger slices were very flavourful) 2. Cauliflower Pizza 3. Breakfast Sammie 4. Turkish Eggs 5. XO fried rice We look forward to going there gain to try their weekday lunch menu and some of the unique desserts they have. Unfortunately, they dont do desserts over weekends.

Great staff, great atmosphere and good food. It’s got some good outdoor seating options too. Just a very cool and unique atmosphere with all the glass walls. I had the steak and pistachio gelato. It was mad good and came out pretty quickly. We had to wait for about 10 minutes on a Monday night so call ahead and reserve to be safe.
