Green Street Tavern
Always a great experienceThe food was a little salty (in general). It always is so if they can lighten up the salt, it would be perfect!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMMultiple visits, consistently greatWe enjoyed a casual dinner with family on a slow Tuesday evening. The staff was friendly, attentive and very helpful as we have come to expect. The food was excellent and tier diverse offering was perfect. We shared three different desserts, all were decadent and delicious.
We used the valet service across the street and saved $2.00 by having the restaurant validate our card.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent FoodIt was one of the few restaurants that offers a great brunch menu for a Saturday. This was our first time there. It took some time before we were first served. Otherwise it was a good experience.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGem in PasadenaGreen Street Tavern is a fantastic little restaurant. It's small, intimate, friendly, chic, and the food is great. (I felt like I was in NYC, not CA)
Hidden in the Old Town mess of branded restaurants, this establishment stands out as a great local alternative.
Enjoy!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMhaving a pleasant night outGreen Street is the kind of place to go to for a high end family atmosphere with great food pairings. Wine suggestions are appreciated and have been on the mark for the dishes we had ordered. I never have room for desert but a quick glance at the menu entices my wife and I too just have a desert and wine evening.
One would expect the bill to be a 5 star but is is a 3.5.
In short you have to try it at least once, I really think you will be surprised.
I am no food critic but I do enjoy great food.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMService was wonderful andService was wonderful and attentive. Food was delicious. Will go back soon.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable EveningLovely evening. Food was very good, if not innovative. Decor is lovely and servers were both attentive and engaging.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe duck cassoulet and filetThe duck cassoulet and filet mignon with farro was very good. The mushroom and gnocchi appetizer was a little too salty. Overall, we always enjoy dining at this restaurant.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is always a hit. PresentationFood is always a hit. Presentation and taste is fantastic. Friendly and efficient wait staff, the owner always very friendly. A great local secret.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMLamb Shank & Syrah for WednesdayWe went for the Wednesday special, as we have often done in the past. The lamb shank was well-prepared though I might have omitted the smoking step as I thought maybe that overwhelmed the rosemary. The polenta and other accompaniments were excellent though, and the wine accompaniment superb. Service, as always, excellent.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMVery tasty lunch with a friend!Very tasty lunch with a friend! Had the lamb pita. Delicious!4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe just love this place!My friend and I really loved this place. We chose to sit at the bar rather than a table and it was fun people watching.
We had several requests; one that included "please very little salt" and they honored it gladly. We had great wine and our salmon with turnip puree was delicious. I will be back soon to try out all of thei other delicious looking entrees.
Great service as well.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMPlease update the menus onPlease update the menus on the website. I was really looking forward to the Lobster Ravioli that was discontinued about 2 months ago.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMNot really a tavern...Food was not only very interesting, but delicious. Service was outstanding. I expected a "tavern" but got an eclectic dining experience instead. Will go back.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMHappiness in all formsConsistently excellent food. Service impeccable. Go there any night, but the Wednesday night entree and pairing is a STEAL. Can't recommend this place more. It's become a happy habit!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Neighborhood SpotWhen we arrived the restaurant was packed, but we were seated immediately at our reservation time. The service was very prompt and attentive. My husband wanted to try the boar meatloaf but they were sold out. The food was very tasty and well prepared. I recommend the burrata with roasted tomato and shrimp cazuela appetizers. We had the filet mignon (prepared perfectly) and the branzino with sunchokes. Both were delicious. You have to order the white chocolate croissant bread pudding. I'm not a huge white chocolate fan, but this was fantastic! Our orders came out quickly, but weren't rushed. They have a good wine list with many local and international options. It's a bit noisy but not to the point where you cannot hear one another.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe portions are very smallThe portions are very small but delicious. The entree salads are appetizer size but entree priced. Luckily, I opted to add salmon (additonal cost of course)to the arugla salad or it definitely wouldn't have been enough food...and I'm not a big eater.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is very good. Not forFood is very good. Not for foodies, it seems more like gastronomic portions. So if you are very hungry you might have to take an appetizer, an entree and a dessert to feel full! Prices are a bit expensive but it's worth it! The drawback of this restaurant is it's very noisy! The service is very attentive. We would recommend it.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWednesday nights take on aWednesday nights take on a new meaning with Green Street Tavern's special deal. Consistently excellent food. The seared himachi this week was incredible and the wine pairing really hit the spot.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great service,Great food, great service, great time! At first I thought the dinner menu might be a bit short but I was so wrong. Such variety and interesting dishes. I'll be back for sure.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMKnowledgeable staff, intriguingKnowledgeable staff, intriguing flavors, delicious food3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful staff, zany atmosphere.Wonderful staff, zany atmosphere. Too noisy for us, but maybe better in the front room. Great food, although suggest not orderin tomatoes until they are really in season. Also, cassoulet is made each day rather than the authentic ongoing cooking. Shrimp appetizer and fillet mignon were perfect!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was excellent,The service was excellent, every staff member was friendly and engaging and made all efforts to make sure our experience was outstanding.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFood always good, change itFood always good, change it around for seasons. Got there fairly early, & it really fills up. Food is not huge portions, very managable, many good sharing items.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMDefinitely Return!We thoroughly enjoyed our experience! Being from the So Bay, we were running late. They not only held our table; the staff was most attentive to our situation (we had Pasadena Playhouse tickets).
We never felt rushed, our food from soups/salads to entrees were creatively prepared and most excellent! We are "foodies" and cannot wait to return to Green St Tavern!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service were excellent.Food and service were excellent. Only complaint is that the noise was unbelievably LOUD!!! One large group was especially talkative and spirited. On weekends it's probably better to sit in the smaller room as you enter instead if the larger one in the back since tables are smaller. Our host warned us, but we didn't listen.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMReally yummy food. Not theReally yummy food. Not the usual fare. Good job all the way around.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe waiter staff was amazing.The waiter staff was amazing. Always making sure our glasses was filled and made sure we had everything we needed. The foods were very good.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food, great servicebut pricey.Food was very delicious however, we felt the prices were high for the size of portions they serve. Not a great value. They were rated with $$ (Moderate) but we felt it was more $$$. Probably won't come back because there are too many great restaraunts that are more reasonably priced.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place was packed andThis place was packed and uncomfortable, but there's a reason for that. The place has an innovative menu of perfectly prepared dishes, and the wait staff is fantastic. We had a show we needed to get to, and they wasted no time getting us in and out of there while still making sure we had a great meal and a great experience.2/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
