A word from Green Street Restaurant
Green Street Restaurant is where Pasadenans go to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner and it's been a Pasadena tradition since 1979. It is centrally located just off South Lake Avenue and is within walking distance of hotels, the convention center, the Pasadena Playhouse and popular shopping areas. Green Street has an eclectic menu featuring savory salads (the ever popular and addicting Dianne Salad is ordered over 2,000 times per week), tasty meats, fresh fish and creative sandwiches served on wonderful breads. Guests enjoy a full bar and interesting wines by the glass on a beautiful patio or in the airy interior. Take-out and full catering services are also available.Continued

  • "My husband and I tried their Diane salad w/kale, and it was delicious! We loved it, and would eat it again. We also had the 8oz steak; it was ok. It was pretty bland, and we had to ask for steak sauce. Service was good, the time to get seated was short, and the noise level was pretty loud (the acoustics in the room are not that great). The only negative is that they don't validate for the parking garage that is right next door to it."

  • "We may just have overlooked it, but this was the first time we had used an "open table" reservation. It was very comfortable to walk right in and be seated immediately. Green Street is one of our family's favorites, and we go there frequently, so this was just one more nice addition. The food and service were excellent, as usual"

  • "The zucchini bread was phenomenal and is reason alone to continue coming back. Great variety of fresh salads and sandwiches, large portions."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "We like that kind of restaurant, very familiar like the French' s restaurant ( a la campagne ), one thing was too bad, they charged the open's wine bottle for $ 8.00, the other restaurant charged half of their price, any way, overall was very good."

  • "The service and food was wonderful. Thank you for a great dining experience with my family!"

  • "All the food was very good----ordered the kobi sliders "as rare as possible" but came out well done. Meat was excellent so they were still good, not great. Had ordered the fruit instead of sweet potato fries, but they brought me the fries----they were soggy and tasteless but they brought me a side of fruit. The server altho good, must have forgotten to write down" rare & fruit"; potato chips were EXCELLENT as an appetizer. We sat at table #29."

  • "I have been a customer for many years and the food (breakfast, lunch, or dinner) was always as good as the last time, I have never been disappointed."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "As always, most enjoyable. This time it was a little noisey. So we had to speak up. I know there is nothing you can do, but we were batting the birds away! (Don't tell Peta!) In fact one of them managed to get to our bread when we were not looking! Overall, a very good time."

  • "when we checked at the host stand the hostess said they did not have my reservation. I told her Open Table sent me a conformation that morning. She did not have it & thought I was at the wrong restaurant. No - I was at the right one. The manager was able to seat us (2) on the patio as requested. The Dianne Salad is outstanding, as is the zucchini bread! Both of us had the Summer Pasta with shrimp which was delicious! This is a great restaurant for lunch - I have not yet been for dinner; but will check it out."

  • "This is one of my favorite local spots to go to if its either to catch lunch for a friend or go for brunch on the weekend with my husband... Haven't tried anything here that we have dislike so far.... you get to pick to either sit inside or outdoors... service is good... atmosphere is nice and after your meal you can go out and stroll the neighborhood and shop"

  • "The Green Street Restaurant successfully works hard to maintain its well-deserved reputation for great food and outstanding service. We never tire of it!"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Breakfast is just another meal to these folks--meaning they give preparing it the same professional attention they give lunch and dinner. The breakfast menu--broader in scope than most--offers variations on traditional favorites. Multiple versions of eggs benedict, for example, including a spicy southwestern interpretation and a vegetarian one. The best breakfast potatoes I've had, a crispy home-fried treatment that is unique. Service is prompt, professional and pleasant. A good choice in all respects."

  • "We like Green Street for a casual dinner. Their salads and sandwiches are always very good, and the service is usually fine except when they become very busy. Excellent Diane Salad and breads."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Food was ok but we had a group of 6 and they crammed us into a table beside a tight aisle. The back of my chair kept getting banged into by people trying to get by. We finally asked to be moved but got attitude. Our waiter then took forever to take our order; we finally had to go in search of someone to help us. For the prices, they should work on providing better service."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "The food and service were great. I especially enjoyed the salad with diane dressing. Our server was attentive to our needs and requests. Can't wait to return!"

    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Excellent Diane (Chinese chicken) salad and zucchini bread. There was a wait but they had a nice table saved for our party of 5. We took both our daughter's grandmas and, as my hubby said, made two old ladies very happy. Too full for carrot cake which my aunt in Seattle gets cravings for and has to come here when she's in town."

  • "We have patronized Green Street Restaurant since 1977 when the restaurant was in it's infancy and in all these years I have never had a complaint. Green Street has always provided stellar Customer service and delicious food. The salad Dianne has always been my favorite, however please excuse me if I've spelled it wrong. This salad is so popular that Trader Joe's has their own version of it!!!"

  • "This restaurant has always been one of my absolute faves. I've dined both on the patio, and inside, and the ambience is always fantastic. The menu has a wide variety of options, and the wine list is fantastic. An absolute must-have is the zucchini bread. It's off-the-charts. Would highly recommend, for any occasion, big or small, casual or romantic!"
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "Was disappointed when the host took our party of 4 to a table that was in the middle of the room and in a busy isle for waiters. I expressed that I had made a reservation a week earlier and that the table they were seating us at was unacceptable. The host went back to the manager and found us a better table. The restaurant was super noisy at 12:30pm. Would have been better if I had made a reservation for a table outside where it was less noisy."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "Menu is interesting, hopeful, but the meal quality was fair for dinner (brunch was fine) -- Kobe beef burgers good, not great, served with ice-burg lettuce leaf, hot house tomato, fries and/or sweet potato fries -- undistinguished for the price."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Meh! Not so special. Stick to breakfast and brunch and you will be fine. But skip this place for dinner. It's basically a glorified Denny's."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Having worked and lived in and around Pasadena for years, with the ever changing scene, it's great that the Green Street is still around and is a reliable standby for variety, quality of food and ambience. This latest dinner was with our son and girlfriend, who were on brief trip from NYC - and yes she appreciated eating out on the patio and our weather."
