Upscale lunch with my 10 yr. old in Cleveland?

My daughter has turned 10 this past summer, and I want to start introducing her to fine dining now that she's old enough. I'm going to be in Cleveland with her on the 26th of October, and was wondering if anyone could suggest some places that do a nice weekday lunch and have an atmosphere appropriate for a child - ie, not extremely formal, and not extremely boozy?

Palate wise, we're good - she's an adventurous eater, and is familiar with a wide range of foods, so cuisine wise, anything goes.

    Greenhouse Tavern or Lola downtown. Lola looks upscale but the servers are in jeans and it's a casual atmosphere.

      Agree with Rock and Roller - you might also consider Crop.

        Thank you! We read over the menu's together and her vote was for The Greenhouse Tavern, so I've gone ahead and booked us. I'll be back with our reviews next week!

          Boo, hiss, wailing, moaning, gnashing of teeth. My car has decided that it is more important for it to have new bushings then for me to take my daughter out for a nice dinner. :(

          But when we do get the car sorted and everything back in line, we are definitely going to to the Greenhouse Tavern - I talked to someone there on the phone when I booked the reservation and they were very nice about the whole child thing, which some places aren't.
