    Our dinner with you was a total pleasure. Beautiful ambiance, excellent food and our wonderful waitress made our night out with friends absolutely unforgettable! Although, next time, we'll be sure to ask for a table near the window to have a view of the beautifully lit trees---so pretty! We'll definitely be back!

    My wife and I enjoyed an evening out on a Saturday and enjoyed every minute at the Green Valley Grill. We both had wood-fired menu items (chicken, lamb chops) and could not have been happier with our selections. The food was excellent. Also, our server was very pleasant and exceeded our expectations.

    Have had lunch here 4-5 times over a several year period. Never disappointed> All aspects of the operation are very good but it is the whole package that makes it exceptional. Not a our note. The staff are particularly attentive and helpful. The afternoon tea in the lobby is a freat additional touch for those turning lunch into an afternoon.

    Once again my wife and I's go to dinner spot in Greensboro nailed it. Food was excellent and the service was, no surprise here, phenomenal. My wife had the grilled chicken salad and I feasted on the beef short ribs, both were cooked and prepared to perfection and were delivered to our table rather quickly. If you have not dined with GVG, you must.

    We are beginning to realize that potions are larger in the South. Here, "small plates" will likely fill you up. Sharing is a good idea. Get the lasagna and a small side salad. Skip the "recommended appetizers".

    We have been to this restaurant twice. Great food and service was good but not what you would expect at a restaurant of this caliber. Dishes were not cleared off the table. I had to flag down the waiter to get another drink, twice. It was the same experience both times so it is obviously an expectation or training issue with the management.

    Normally we have fabulous service here - this time we wondered if our waiter was new. He would disappear for a long stretch - didn't offer me another cocktail, and I would have ordered a glass of wine to go with my entree, but again, he was nowhere around. This is not the norm for GVG. Hopefully he is just getting the hang of things!

    This was a special occasion brunch and very nice. We had some special needs that weren't on the menu and they weren't a problem. We arrived and our table was ready on time and they recognized my daughter and wished her a happy birthday! The specials sounded wonderful and our waiter was very informative and an experienced server. Can't say enough about our great experience. Glad to know this restaurant option is so close to campus for parents and special occasions.

    There is no doubt, we had a nice dinner. But, I think my expectations were just a little too high. People were super nice and welcoming. The food was good, but not exceptional. For the price, I'm sorry to say, I've had better. Would I come back...maybe....just to see if it was better the second time. Would I recommend it? Probably not.

    We had a wonderful birthday lunch at the Green Valley Grill last Saturday. The food was delicious, the restaurant was beautiful and the service was impeccable! We wanted to sit outside on the gorgeous patio, but it was raining, so next time we'll opt for that. Our waiter was so gracious and when I asked for a glass of water to put my birthday flowers in, our waiter brought out a beautiful vase instead! They served the most delicious warm honey wheat bread and butter while we were waiting for our food. I would highly recommend the scallops over polenta with sauteed seasonal greens. Perfect portions and yummy!

    This was my first visit to Green Valley Grill and I was very disappointed. I thought the food was poorly presented and not consistent with what one expects from a classier restaurant. Both entrees had truffle oil and I don't think either were complimented by this addition. Odd pairings in general on the plate and we found a much better dinner at Carrabbas the night after. On the positive side, the staff was very friendly and professional. If only the food reflected their class act.

    This is one of my favorite restaurants in Greensboro but it has been mediocre to fair the last few times we have eaten there. We just came back from Ssn Francisco where every meal, including the inexpensive ones, were fantastic. I had stuffed eggplant that was all breading and dried out on a bed of couscous that was greasy and tasteless. My husband had the burger which was fair. The chocolate cake tasted like it came from a box. The wine was good. There are a lot of mediocre restaurants in Greensboro--I'm adding the GVG to that list.
