    1. hoo boy, are they having front of house issues, which you don't expect with a sophomore effort.

      made reservations for a party of 13 for a saturday night birthday party. hostess told me they don't take reservations. read to her the facebook page, which specifically said they take them for parties of 6+. she put me on hold, came back and said oh sorry, we're new, let me arrange it for you.

      i called today to confirm, because i'm anal like that.
      the same lady told me there were no reservations on the books so why doesn't she do that now.

      gonna call every single day to confirm, because we have people coming from all over for this, including a very pregnant lady.

        The phone number posted also was wrong.... I hope they fixed that.. It rang Greenhouse instead and they were obviously not happy about getting the calls..... Have not been the Parental Unit for some reason has not dropped everything to take me ( imagine huff huff pout)

          they did fix the number, but not before me and a bunch of other people kept trying to call...

          Honestly I have a feeling you'll be disappointed. Greenhouse wasn't very impressive to me. They should certainly perfect restaurant 1 before opening restaurant 2.

              well, the birthday person really likes greenhouse and has a thing for alice in wonderland so...

              at this point i just want to make sure we don't have a huge group waiting to be seated because they forgot about us.

              i also expect settling the tab will be a PITA, but that's what happens when you're a big group.

          1. Going for lunch on Friday. Also, we like Greenhouse a lot at lunch but have not had good luck at night.
