    It took a considerable time to get our food after ordering it but this gave 2 friends time to visit and get caught up with what we have been missing in each other's lives. The food was very tasty, served very attractively, and was hot on arrival. It was a good value for the cost. I will definitely plan to visit again.

    I took my Mom and Sister there to celebrate Mother's Day on Saturday evening. We were unanimous that we'd all come back. The service was excellent. Their Parmesan truffle fries were worth the trip, but do not miss the desserts. We shared an outstanding pistachio cheesecake and three berry cobbler. They were outstanding. Portions are very large so you will leave full! And because the atmosphere is so nice, you will stay for a while.

    The food was great, the location convenient, the service was very good. I had asked for a window booth when I made the reservation a day in advance, but that didn't happen. Oh well, can't have it all. The fried sweet potatoes are the best! The pan-seared rib-eye is quite good. The corn-crusted trout not so. The place got a bit noisy when a group was seated across from us but I expect that in any popular restaurant these days. Overall a good experience.

    Food was terrible. I have never had worse, dryer grits anywhere else in the south. Veggies were just so so...what we make at home on a regular night for ourselves for veggies is just as good if not better. Meatloaf pretty good, but peas that came with it tasted like out of the can. Waitress was terrible. Slow service, couldn't describe the special or give input on what different dishes were like. We were also running late and tried to call to let them know to push back reservations an no one would pick up the phone. Called 5 times. We had heard go things about Green Room so we were extremely disappointed. I would have rather just eaten at home.

    E went at 11:30 on a Thursday and service was extremely slow despite only having three tables with guests. Food always takes painfully Long to receive. Meatloaf is awesome. Steak salad amazing. Truffle fries are great. Kids menu is not advertised but they have one with good selections. I would go back but order quickly since the food takes forever.

    Would highly recommend The Green Room, as it was highly recommended to me by several different people. There were so many things on the menu we wanted to try, we will definitely be back - and want to try the brunch as well. Truffle fries were to die for. Service was awesome, we told the waitress we were going to see a show at the Peace Center and she made sure we were finished in plenty of time to get there on time. Recommend getting a reservation if possible, it's a small restaurant and fills up fast!

    We have eaten at the Green Room several times because we love the food! Being in the middle of a very busy downtown area, their valet parking service is a big bonus for them. One small complaint I had last Saturday night was that the fish special I ordered was a bit overcooked. I told our server, who offered to have the chef cook another piece. I really didn't want to wait, so they comped a glass of wine instead. Their tuna tacos and truffle fries are the BEST!

    I will be back! We had a great experience. It would've been perfect had it not been for delay in getting the wine we ordered and the slightly overcooked salmon, although tasty. The variety of butters and flavored oil with the flavorful rolls was very fun but would've been better if the butters were not seemingly frozen, which made it brittle and difficult to spread. The calamari was surprisingly the most memorable food; the sweet and spicy sauce was fantastic with the tender calamari. The seasoned vegetables were flavorful yet crispy and not overcooked. The steak was perfectly cooked. Overall, the experience was very memorable! We look forward to visiting again!

    The food is normally VERY good. We had an issue with the porkchop. Part of it was cooked perfectly the other part was rare. We showed the server the very rare part and she went back to the kitchen. She came back, told us the chef said that rare pork is now acceptable ( no more trichnosis). That's fine, however if that is the case and they are now cooking pork Rare, the server should ask at what temp do you want your pork cooked. Clearly the chop wasn't cooked all the way through, and the chef was making excuses for it. If you have a steak it isn't half done and half undone. We were very suprised that neither the chef nor the manager came out to comment as they should have.

    We came to the Green Room for our anniversary based on many great recommendations. After we read the menu, we were looking forward to the experience. As other reviewers stated, we were surprised that it was also a "bar" (which made the restaurant quite loud) We started with the fried green tomatoes which seemed like a good idea. However, after receiving the appetizer, I was disappointed. The tomatoes were so thin and so heavily fried you could not taste anything but the fried batter. Our entrees were no better. My stuff porkchop was dry and bland, and my girlfriends dusted trout was burnt and crispy. Overall, the food was not deserving of the price. If you want this style of food, go to Soby's or Stella's.

    First off, I wasn't aware that this place was essentially a bar, albeit a fairly nice one, when I made my reservation. Fine, but not what I was looking for that night. The wine list is typical middle America (read: not good for anyone who is into wine, like me). Not a judgement against the place, it's just obvious they don't care much about the list. The mussels were small (the order was big, the actual meat of each shriveled and small), and there was hardly any broth, the toast weren't toasted, it seemed. But, the flavors were good. The scallops were UNBELIEVABLE; huge, perfectly cooked, plump and delicious. The risotto with the scallops was great, too.

    This place was recommended by friends. Sadly, we were disappointed. When the waitress finally arrived(after 10 minutes of sitting), she was flat and not very friendly. When I asked a question about one of the entrees, she provided no insight on the dish. Quite frankly, she didn't seem very positive about what I ordered. I guess I should have listened to her subtle hints (of lack of interest or excitement for what I ordered), because the swordfish I had was dry and bland. I really wanted to put salt and pepper in it. My wife's filet was pretty good, but I expected a little more in this price range. On a positive note, it was a cool place in a great location. I may go back to try the meatloaf, but there are so many other places to go eat.

    Overall a great experience - the meatloaf was tremendous, incredible flavor with a delicious sauce to top it off - paired with fresh (not overcooked!) peas and a spicy mac-n-cheese, it was a great dinner - service left a bit to be desired as i never received the beverage I ordered from the bar and our server had a number of tables (inside and outside) which left rather long gaps in availability - great atmosphere with exposed brick and local art on the walls, it was a fun place for a tourist to walk in and feel like a part of the town

    This was our first time at the Green room. I normally don't say bad things about restaurants. But I feel this restaurant did not live up to what we heard or the price. First we received stuffed mushrooms that were not cooked. Evidently they forgot our appetizer because 30 minutes later the girl says it would be up in a minute. We cut one of the mushrooms and it was basically straight out of the fridge and nuked in the microwave with a little cheese and stuffing. The worst appetizer I have ever received. We sent it back immediately. Getting a drink was near impossible there also. We had to wave our waitress down to get a drink from the bar. The entrees were not as bad.

    I picked this restaurant for Valentine's day based off a menu comparison of other downtown restaurants. The rib eye certainly didn't disappoint, but the parmesan truffle fries were lacking noticeable parmesan flavor. Tried an appetizer off the holiday menu, glad it's not regular, the risotto cheese balls were very bland, first time I've ever salted an appetizer. Wife loved the berry cobbler, I was very underwhelmed by the chocolate creme Brulee. Also seating was very odd, tables on the long bench seat positioned so i was constantly shifting to let servers the corner or getting bumped.
