2nd visit in two weeks. Loved
2nd visit in two weeks. Loved both, but was disappointed in the crab salad app Saturday 3/16. The crabmeat was top notch, but I was a 3rd into the dish before detecting even a soupçon of the horseradish sauce. Every plate needs to be impeccable at this pricepoint.
Also, the dining room was quite chilly, which detracted from a lovely meal. Perhaps because I wasn't imbibing I was the only one who noticed?

Good Farm to Table
Food was all cooked perfectly and delicious. Service was great. Farm to table, some organic, interesting beer/wine.

This is my second visit to
This is my second visit to GST. It's a cozy atmosphere for a delicious farm to table brunch. The prixe fix is a great value - not too many places that offer such fresh ingredients from Lancaster, PA and 2 drinks included. The place is so busy but the wait staff is very pleasant and attentive - you never have to ask for more coffee (or for your second drink). After my first time there last month with a friend, I just had to go back so my husband could enjoy a great NYC brunch experience. I'll be going back again to try more options on the menu - everything looks so good.

Always good food. Great for lunch or dinner, but can get a little too loud if the bar is packed.

Great place! Second time we were here would come back again.

I'll be back again soon!

Just moved into the neighborhood with work. Took clients for a lunch and everyone loved it. Will definitely be back. Everyone loved the burgers.

Outstanding quality food, expertly prepared, beautifully presented. Superior service. Can't wait for my next excuse to go. The next time I will order a vegetable side dish. The entrees were wonderful, but they are mostly meat with one modest sized vege side.
Very highly recommend.
4/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Not fancy but fun, bright, with organic fare. Great service. Very easy, inviting spot. I've also been to the bar and the cocktails and bartenders are excellent.

Greensquare has a nice homey
Greensquare has a nice homey feel - it is casual and comfortable. The food is wonderful, the service attentive and we never felt rushed in any way. I recommend it for a lovely dining experience when you are looking for low key, quiet, sophistication with casualness. There is nothing casual about the food - the menu is lovely and everything is prepared with care. Go and enjoy!

Can't wait too back
Staying strict to the Paleo diet can be difficult at many restaurants, but not at Greensquare Tavern. We went there for my birthday last night, and the food quality was extraordinary, and everything I ordered was perfectly prepared. At the recommendation of our server, first came the grilled octopus; it was tender, and full of flavor. Next it was the duck and sugar snap peas. Perfection. The service is not speedy, but the staff is super friendly, knowledgeable and gracious. Relax and enjoy!

Leave your attitude at the door
My boyfriend and I wanted to try something new in our neighborhood so we went to Greensquare Tavern on Saturday night. The bf can be a bit of a snob so he was not thrilled when we walked in and he saw the tile floor and cafe type seating. I asked him to give it a try. His first bite of the oxtail appetizer won him over. All of the food was amazing. I had the pasta dish. The veggies were cooked to perfection. The bf had the duck. The plate was clean. By the time we left the restaurant was packed. I look forward to making this one a regular on our hit list!

What a great find!!
This was my second visit to Greensquare Tavern, and it was fantastic! The restaurant is very cozy without being crowded. We went at 11:45 for lunch, and by the time we left, the restaurant had filled up and was a bit noisy. We ordered the two soups of the day, mushroom and a split pea. Delicious!! Then, we had the Cobb salad and a veggie burger. Both were so wonderful, you could really tell the quality of the ingredients. Prices were reasonable, and the service was good. I would definitely go back and would recommend it to anyone.

Just a great unassuming restaurant
I work in Murray Hill which is somewhat restaurant challenged, so it's a great to have a fine lunch place like this in the Flatiron. Just wonderful.

Excellent food and service.
Excellent food and service. bustling lunch crowd but not overwhelming. Loved our waitress who I think was Australian. Went for lunch for my wife's birthday and it did not dissappoint.

pretty noisy though. . . hope they get this corrected.

I have been here many times and always had a great experience.
However, we arrived to find the airconditioning not working. It wasn't a particularly hot night , but it was muggy.
There were fans, and the lights were lowered and apologies from the staff.

Delicious brunch food (all 6 of us had "breakfast" items - eggs and pancakes). Eggs and accompanying home fries were delicious; pancakes were large, thick and rather heavy but tasted good; they came with a cup of very fresh berries. A/C still not working, but was not a problem this day. Will definitely return.
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
I came here with my friends because all the other places in the neighborhood were full. This place, on the contrary, was pretty empty the entire night we were there (from 8 - 10 pm). The food turned out to be very good, especially the mussels. The waiters were all very friendly and polite. The best part is that they use seasonal, locally grown produce. The only downside is that the kitchen closes at around 10:30 pm.

As they say, farm to table.
Ingredients are very fresh, a great burger and turkey burger, salads are great.
Good beer and wine selection as well.

shopped from the net
found Greentable online, liked the menu and gave it a try. I had the chicken, was nicely roasted, w/ delicate sweet glaze. My companions both had the scallops and raved. Service prompt and pleasant. Ambience LOUD LOUD. There is no option to choose loud on this survey. I recommend this place - solid and tasty. It is not a place for a relaxed meal. Oh, yes - very good margarita, made w/ fresh lime juice. I would come here again sometime, but not go out of my way, because of the noise level - that typical NYC restaurant roar of chaotic yelling bouncing off the walls.

Great food and good people - definitely going back.

Delicious, local sustainable food!
I chose this spot for its healthy menu for a lunch with my family and was not disappointed! Local sustainable nutritious food that leaves you satisfied! Attentive service, no pretension - Mac n cheese with bacon bits - my 7 yr old devoured- chicken entree flavorful and moist, bacon cheeseburger- yum! Flourless chocolate cake with fresh cream...
We ate everything with gusto! Will
Definitely be back

I think this is great little find for a quick lunch and it is also suitable to bring clients. Food is tasty. Service is good. The noise level is a bit high.

This is such a gem of a Restraunt. We fell upon this place by accident and were blown away by the food. The portions, like most American eateries are generous but not overbearing. It also provided me with the best pork chop I have ever eaten; doorstop thick and cooked to perfection. Truly brilliant. The staff are friendly & efficient. Would go back without any hesitation.

Food was excellent- the noise level however is pretty high as there isn't much to absorb the sound

Fresh flavorful food
3 good "F" words: fresh, flavorful, food. Would have loved more of an ambience to compliment this restaurant's good eats but it was a great location for going to see a friend's band play a few blocks away at a bar afterwards on a Saturday night.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent All Around !!!
Awesome restaurant in every way! Bartender Mary and Chef a John make you feel welcomed and display their appreciation for your business. Food is top quality! Servicer are attentive, quick and responsive. Everyone should dine at GST !

Great Food, No Service
Had brunch here last Sunday. The food was stellar, highly recommend. However, the service was awful. My wife ordered tea, they brought the tea box, no hot water. I had to physically track down our waiter and tell him. I had ordered a glass of prosecco for me. So a few minutes pass and the waiter brings two mugs of hot water, one for my wife and one for me. No glass of sparkling wine. Had to get up again and track him down. The people we were with ordered coffee, which didn't arrive until we were almost done. Staff never checked on us. No excuse for this horrible service.

Great place for brunch with friends
Had the pleasure to enjoy brunch at this restaurant with 3 other friends. We picked this restaurant based on its location and also the online reviews. Brunch selection was very varied, with several interesting (vegetarian and non-vegetarian) options. Particularly liked the fact that they take pride in the organic and free range ingredients. Two of my friends tried the beef burger while I settled with the grilled chicken sandwich on a baguette, and my other friend had the eggs benedict with smoked salmon. All dishes were delicious. For dessert we shared the homemade cheesecake and the flourless chocolate cake... both were to die for! We highly recommend this restaurant for brunch, you will not be dissapointed!

Greensquare solid choice
With some good choices for vegetarians such as a veggie burger on the menu, this was a perfect sport for my group when dining in the Gramercy area. Service was friendly, everything tasted good, and it is bigger inside than you might think so it is probably not hard to find a table even without a reservation at many times.

Neighborhood go-to place
We met the chef at the Union Square Greenmarket, tasted his tomato soup and decided to give the restaurant a try.
Service was attentive, but not overwhelming, the food quite pleasantly varied, flavorful. My husband's kale and shrimp salad was outstanding- fresh-tasting with no iodine overtones, the kale was sweet and I'm not a kale fan. He loved the focaccia with figs, honey and prosciutto as a main. I shared a spinach salad with our cousin and it was excellent. I had ordered the vinaigrette on the side which did not happen, but it was not overwhelmingly strong. The braised duck with pappardelle was scrumptious- lots of tender duck in a very light broth sauce. The chicken was proclaimed to be tender and juicy. A success!
We will go back.

Farm to table food which is both healthy and delicious. The wait staff are attentive without being overly so.
The restaurant was out of 2 entrees . I dined early Monday evening. I would re-visit

Greensquare Tavern Rules!
If you want fresh, farm-to-table and clean, wholesome meats all having great taste and flair and not cost a small fortune....then this is the place for you!
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
Over all great restaurant with excellent food and service that makes you fell comfortable without stealing your wallet. Just a bit on the noisy side.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very tasty farm to table restaurant. The Butternut Squash Foccia was one of the best appetizers I've ever had, I have now brought friends and family back twice and forced them to order that!! The burger is very fresh and juicy, it is perhaps the best burger I've had in Manhattan so far!

The high quality organic and local food and creative preparations made up for a limited menu.....happy hour priced were very reasonable! And we loved the Pinot noir! Great deal meets sustainable food!

Although acoustics are not good, the food and service more than make up for it. The only other negative was the attitude of the host although I heard that is not the norm - maybe an off day for him.

Marsh is a Master
Green Square food is fresh from the farm and sea and prepared wonderfully by chef John Marsh. Everything was fresh and special
Roasted chicken and braised short ribs a must.
