The food tastes good, but my husband and I have both gotten sick from eating here on two separate occasions that were over a year apart. Unfortunately we won’t be going back :(

Great spot for contemporary American fare in Arlington. Portions are a good size; not too large or small. Would recommend the biscuits!

I have eaten dinner here several times over the Summer. As always the food & cocktails are delicious, the staff are friendly and attentive! Overall Thanksgiving dinner was good (1st seating) and the atmosphere was welcoming to all guests!!! My only disappointment, the Chef's awesome collard greens and bread pudding weren't served.

Thank you for being consistent & preparing quality food.

Cheers!

Food was average and over-priced. Although bacon was featured on pretty much every featured entree, they had no bacon when requested for their lamb burger. Quite a head scratcher given the type of restaurant. And stay away from the risotto which could have come from any grocery shelf.

Had a great time! Someone said “bye Mei” when I was walking out and I was surprised at the service commitment. Thanks for making me feel welcome. Server Jeff was awesome, food was delicious, and the ambiance was very inviting.

Usually enjoys my meal here but service was super slow tonight and they forgot my friends soup before her entree and then her entree came out cold and by the time her dinner came back warm the rest of us were finished. Not the best performance by green pig bistro tonight

Enjoyed Sunday brunch with my elderly mother. Friendly staff and very accommodating. Great food and comfortable environment. Quality and not over the top. Servers were attentive, which I so appreciate. Our second time and will return, again, and, again! Thank you!

I’ve been a customer of GPB since it opened. When I lived in the area, I would come in regularly. We were seated in a booth by the bar, which I thought might be a welcome change.

Hands down the worst brunch experience I’ve had at GPB. The Prosecco was flat, the food came out lukewarm, and I noticed the quality of ingredients was subpar. We only ate all the food because it was a 130pm brunch and we were starving.

I got the Prosecco taken off the bill and talked with the manager who was the one who gave me the flat Prosecco. He looked completely surprised.

Guess that’s why I don’t recognize the wait staff any longer and one of them is even at Blue Duck Tavern. Good for her!!

Came here for brunch with some friends and it was a hit. Mulled wine and warm scones on a cool fall day was exactly what we all needed. The variety and attention to detail, along with some tasty food options, had us all impressed. I know my friends and I will be back again soon.

We had a birthday dinner for our son, well-reserved in advance. We were put at a large community table, so wide that it was difficult to talk easily to those family members across the table. We asked to change and were refused. My son spoke with the manager then who moved us to a more appropriate table. The restaurant was mostly empty so this wasn’t a question of space. Though the service was very good, we were put off by this surprisingly unfortunate customer service.

This is a great neighborhood gem, we have been coming to the Green Pig since it changed over from the Vermont Pizza Company almost ten years ago. The restaurant and staff have been consistently excellent.

My first visit and will definitely be back. The menu was fantastic and made it very hard to decide. Our server was excellent and can’t say enough about him. His recommendations were spot on AND he re-shook my martinis...classy but almost never happens. The food didn’t disappoint. All around a great experience.

Excellent food in a warm and cozy atmosphere. They had just changed to their fall menu and we were very pleased with the choices. The butternut squash soup was so flavorful and the snails and mushrooms over toast were delicious. We also tried the bone marrow which was a hit at our table. For entrees we ate the pork shank, scallops and vegetable risotto. They were all delicious. For dessert we tried the coffee cheesecake and flourless chocolate cake (topped with vanilla ice cream) and both were excellent.

This place is awesome. Great food, great service. So many enticing items, you’ll want to return over and over to try them all! Marisa is a delight - provided a ton of helpful information about the dishes and was attentive but not intrusive. Looking forward to our next visit.

Delicious food, friendly service, but we were seated next to the window with a draft, and it was quite cold. As we were walking out of the restaurant the temperature was quite a bit warmer in the center of the dining area. If you are by the windows, be prepared to be cold.

I’ve been to Green Pig several times and the food and service are always on point. This time around we had the waiter JP, who was one of the best servers I’ve ever had. He anticipated our needs before we said anything and made it a very pleasant experience. I will be back.

Very nice brunch! Outstanding service — Attentive waiter without being doting.

Huevos Rancheros were the best my wife said she ever had. My steak and eggs were very good EXCEPT my poached eggs weren’t cooked properly as part of my runny yoke was cool in temperature.

Notwithstanding the undercooked poached egg, we will
be back!

A few things kept this from a better review. First is the reservation time was not correctly recorded by the restaurant staff; It took an excessive amount of time to get the check at the end of the meal and often times during the meal, there were long periods of time where we never did see the wait person;
Lastly, the portions were not consistent. For instance, the hanger steaks were served in much smaller portions than the pork chops or the fish.
With all that said, the kitchen did a great job with the food. My table had the items mentioned above as well as a few appetizers and deserts. I would also say, even though the reservation got botched, we were not made to wait for a table as they sat us at the communal table in the back.
So I'll say that this is a place we would return to.

Chicken biscuits are great as are the ribs - oysters were also good but the person who delivered them had no idea which type of oyster we were served (this person was not our server but more of runner). Good cocktails too
