Diner Reviews
  • "Our dinner from the Dine LA menu started off fair, but with the entrée, it all fell apart. The waitress missed an order that never arrived, and the chef's definition of braised ribs, (that is slow cooked, ready to fall apart) got confused with seared (grilled on outside, completely rare inside). The 3rd meal was palatable but unimpressive. Ambience was good, noise level was good, spot in Pasadena was good. .. . so much potential, but a culinary disastrous evening."

  • "Goat cheese gnocchi appetizer is exceptional. Crab cakes were also delicious. For dinner we ordered the Wild Boar Meatloaf and Smoked Pork Chop with polenta and an apple bourbon glaze. They were fantastic. Service was good, but the restaurant has a "shared server" approach in which multiple servers service the table. This results in more interruptions than necessary, reduced customer-server intimacy and lack of service continuity. A single server can read the customer and better control the pace of service. Ambiance is subdued and a bit sterile, but not unpleasant. Perhaps the addition of fresh flowers and some accent lighting throughout the dining room would add a little pert to the place."

  • "The lunch was great and the service swift. In and out in an hour with an appetizer and main. Interesting menu. Great place!"

  • "Loved their food, but the menu was quite limited. Beer and wine only...but good choices."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "I advise using open table because making a reservation through the website, we were seated right when we walked into the restaurant. The restaurant is broken up into two halves, preferably ask to sit in the back half it is way more spacious and gives more of a "date" feel."

  • "One of my favorite neighborhood spots for a tasty lunch, and great dinners as well. When crowded, the noise can be difficult, but the food makes up for the sound. The Pasadena Cobb Salad is a favorite."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "Took advantage of the Dine LA week specials offerings. My crab cakes & arugula appetizer itself was enough to stem my hunger! And I still had the main course to go. The Green Tavern burger that followed was delicious, cheesy and big! I cannot get enough garlic on my garlic fries! These were tasty. I was unable to finish my burger, so I took it home for later noshing! I forget this little jewel of a restaurant and bar exists almost on the corner of Green & Delacey...need to return!"

  • "The food was amazing--cooked to perfection, brilliant flavors, great wine list. Our food took an hour to get to us, but it was worth the wait. The place is crazy loud--distractingly. But, I'd go back. Food and service (professional!) was terrific."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The food was well prepared, cooked well and had good flavors, but I found it to be heavily over-salted which is a big mistake when you are looking at a tab of over $50 per person with wine. The ambiance was nice especially in the back room. The service was good."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "When I looked at menu for Green Street Tavern, I only looked at the lunch menu. When I went it was Saturday so it was a brunch menu. Everything was freshly made and delicious. I really enjoyed the fresh hollandaise sauce and the grilled ham on the Benedict! I m anxious to return for lunch and dinner!"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Great service. The duck sliders we ordered were a little dry and the server noticed we weren't to happy with the dish. He immediately took it away and apologized and took it off the bill. The drinks are great. Haven't been there for dinner yet but can take wait to try it"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Food was good if a little slow. Waitress very attentive and alert. It was very quiet when we were there but the street did get parked up by 12:30 - 1 PM"
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "After ignoring this place for a couple of years, I have been there twice in the last months as other restaurants in the area closed. Great meals at reasonable price. A steak special two weeks ago came with a free glass of Cab"

  • "We found Green St Tavern on Open Table and we were so happy we did. I cannot think of one missed step, from the excellent service to the outstanding food. In particular their special gnocchi was on par with the best dishes we've had traveling in Umbria and Tuscany. The salads were superb and sadly we didn't have room for dessert. Our only regret is that we don't live in California so we'll have to wait for our next trip!"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Reservation was pretty late and most of the dinners wrapping up their dining on the Wednesday night. However when we got in the staff greeted us with warmth and pleasant smileys. Food was amazing (pork chops and daily special steak cut) were delicious. The food was paired with great wines."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Went to Green Street Tavern for Father's Day dinner. The food was very good, particularly the lamb and the boar. Very limited beer/ale selection for a "tavern" although the wine list is extensive. The service was also good, but not exceptional. The ambiance was not the best; we were seated in the front section near the front door. Request the back room if you do go - much better there. Best for couples; don't bring the kids."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Good food and pleasant atmosphere. A bit of a secret but hopefully word will get out. The Lamb Tagine is nicely spiced and presented. Close you eyes, take a bite and imagine yourself as a pied noir visiting the Magrheb. Get a table by the window for a nice view of Green Street while you enjoy you meal. "

  • "We had never been to this restaurant before but we are very glad we went. Will definitely return."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Noise level was high. Maybe the room in the front is better, but less atmosphere. Filet was only 1/2 inch thick. Should have sent it back, but the noise level was starting to get to us. "
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "This is much more than a tavern. The food was very good as as well as the service and atmosphere. I ordered the wild boar meatloaf. My husband and I shared the arugula salad and octopus. We will definitely keep this restaurant on our list. It is located close to Old Town Pasadena where we went for coffee afterwards."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Went here for a family birthday brunch. The restaurant is very beautiful, and service is fine, but the food was disappointing. The eggs benedict I ordered tasted horrible, and also had part of the egg shell still attached to the food. I pointed this out to the waitress, who replaced it with another egg (without a shell). The general consensus was that the food was tasteless or poorly-prepared. We won't be back. "
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "The food here is off the chart! Get the pick chop, you will not be disappointed !"
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "The Mother's Day menu was limited and over priced. Online they did not specify they would only be serving their limited pre fix menu. A gratuity in excess of 20% ( because it was apparently calculated after tax) was automatically added to our bill. I won't be going here again on Mother's Day."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "One of the craziest dining days ever but the staff worked as a well-oiled machine. We had no less than 6 people touch our table! And each and every one of them seemed absolutely committed to making our experience a good one. One of the best wait staff ever. No kidding."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Very good food and great service. Our waitress was coming by often to see if we need anything. The food portions are not large but the food is delicious. The place is cute, great location in Old Town Pasadena but parking might be a challenge in weekend nights. A little bit noisy not great for a quiet meal. Over roll a great experience, we went there many times and we had the same good experience."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "I happened on the Green Street Tavern while driving down Green Street and made it a point to stop in. The staff is very nice, attentive and they make you feel quite comfortable. I enjoyed the dining although my crisp green beans were a little too crisp and some tasted uncooked. Mind you, I like them crisp. The risotto was absolutely wonderful and it was topped with very pleasant and very very tender Short Ribs. I could have taken a double dose of the risotto."
    Dined on 5/8/2014
  • "Tomato appetizer and salmon entree were excellent. The thick cut pork chop was not tender and a bit dry-- asked to have it done the way the chef recommends to keep it moist."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "We had great food but we had to wait over 1hr between our ap and our main meal. The salmon and mushroom special with polenta (toast like sticks of polenta) was amazing and the mushrooms were some of the best I have ever had. My wifes steak was amazing and she remarked it was also one of best meals she has ever had. Our extremely long wait was noted though and did color our evening slightly. "
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "Short ribs and wild boar meatloaf very good. Portion size just right. Great wine list. Great service. Large groups would not be best accomodated here. Not romatic due to noise level. No live entertainment if that's your thing - wasn't ours, so it didn't matter."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "The tables are very close together. If people are talking above a whisper you can hear their whole conversation.....which makes talking to each other is impossible. The restaurant is very claustrophobic. We would not go back there again."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "I was meeting a friend of mine for dinner, but he was running really late. I have been to their other restaurant in downtown LA called Indsutriel (a great place I must say). The restaurant closes at nine o'clock, but my server had the kitchen stay a bit longer, so my friend had an opportunity to order his entree. Who does that these days? The food was most flavourable. I had the boar meatloaf with the boar bacon. My friend had their steak, which was cooked to perfection. For dessert we had their chocolate cake; it was quite sinful. I will definitely be back for the great food and service."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "Still way above the rest of the restaurant crowd in Old Town Pasadena. Menu has been honed-in on the local favorites. Well executed, although the menu offering can probably use a little more new turnover."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "My wife and I have been here for dinner several times and have always enjoyed their food. This was the first time we tried their brunch and was very impressed. Not very crowded and the ambiance felt like we were at a B&B b/c it was so friendly and casual. We will be back for brunch more often!"
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "The shrimp cazuela was very good, and so declared all of us at the table as we "helped" our friend out by tasting...we will order that next time!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Used to be a great place, but everything has slipped. Food quality is not what it used to be, and the service is now awful."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "This is a neighborhood staple for a good meal without having to venture too far into Old Town or over to Arroyo Chop House or Parkway Grill. The service is good. Don't miss items are the baked brie and roasted chicken."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "We walk by this place on a regular basis, so when friends came in from out of town we made reservations to try the menu. It always seemed quiet, so we thought it would be a good place to talk. Well the food was excellent, the wine list nicely curated, but the sound made conversation almost impossible. It was a busy Saturday night - with a large crowd. So we will definitely be back - on a night with fewer people when we want to talk to friends."
