Haven't been to Green Street in a while & despite the health obstacles the food & service remain top notch. The homemade potato chips are amazing & the Diane Salad is to die for. Don't miss this place.

Patio tables were set far apart and service was excellent. Nearby construction work brought noise level very high. Food was ok - nothing stood out.

Good but not great food - food usually is good. Horrid service - didn’t get one order right - awful! If you are not going to write the order down for a party of 5, you better have eidetic memory - which he didn’t. Miserable experience.

We made reservations for 4 so we'd make our show on time. Our reservations were for 11:30 Sunday morning. When we arrived it took them 10 minutes to seat us. Our waitress didn't come back for our order for several minutes. After ordering we waited 40, our waitress never came back and finally one of our groups flagged her down. No apology, she said "oh, I'll check". She then came back and said "you're order is next". Another 15 mins and we finally received our food but not all at once. We waited another 5 mins for everyone to be served.
I get that things happen and perhaps the kitchen was short staffed but there's no excuse for the crappy service and attitude.

The food was not as good as past visits. The signature Salad Diane was over dressed and the portion too large as a side salad. The salmon sliders were fishy, dry and not as flavorful as expected. The ahi tuna burger was the highlight.

Everything was great, but with barely anyone there, we were placed against a wall in what looked like the worst table in the place. Don't appreciate having to ask to move to another table, but the food, the service and the overall ambiance was excellent.

After ordering cocktails it took a LONG time to get them and when they finally came it was clear the bartender did not know how to make a vodka Collins. Also, I requested little ice and it came with tons of ice and little liquid. Then our house salad came with ice, which I can't eat and which seems highly unusual to me. Very soon after the replacement came here came our entries. We had only taken a bit or two of the corrected salad. The entries were taken back to the kitchen. When they were returned to us much of the food was less than hot and the food was of marginal quality.

Great salads. My wife had the Cornacopia and I had the traditional Diane Salad. Both were excellent but $42.00 for two lunch size salads is a little pricey.

We thought of Green Street as mostly a breakfast/lunch place, so thought we would try it for dinner. Mixed results.

Soups just OK, corn chowder had not much flavor. 8 oz. steaks were cooked accurately to order but somewhat chewy. Dianne salad was as good as ever, and service was friendly, but it didn't make up for what otherwise was a lackluster meal.

The menu was quite varied with lots to choose from. I think the waitstaff should let people know how HUGE the dinner size salads are. My husband ordered the Kale Dianne and it was absolutely enormous-almost unapetizingly so. He took home more than half and we split it for lunch the next day.

My friend and I both ordered the Diane salad, and the server suggested we order one large sized salad and split it. He was absolutely right -- it was plenty for both of us. The ambience was casual yet refined, as always. This place really hasn't changed much in decades, and that's a good thing. I have a feeling we'll be returning to this place on our anniversaries from here on. A great place to start something.

It has been many years since I’ve been here, maybe 20, and it is thriving and even better than I remembered. I will make sure the return visit is a lot sooner. Generous portions with great choices — all delicious! And that zucchini bread is living up to its legacy!

I chose it because you can make reservations, key on busy weekend mornings. Brunch menu on Sunday is large, something for everyone! Eggs, pancakes & French Toast, granola. We tried the jam toast with nut butter and bacon. Good portion size and came with a large serving of fresh, delicious fruit. The egg dishes and French Toast were all delicious, as is the coffee and zucchini bread. Service was very friendly and professional, and the food arrived quickly. We all enjoyed it!
