Our first visit was terrific. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, and their recommendations for the wine as well as the food were spot on. The typical restaurant noises reverberated a bit throughout the room, but it was not overly loud. We appreciated that the loud music was only in the front bar area, allowing the backroom dining area to be a little more subdued. We had a wonderful meal, and the Green Pig Bistro is now our favorite restaurant in the area, and the fact that its walking distance for us is an extra benefit.

Reservation was honored on a busy Saturday night with no wait. Service was excellent- I was interested in a particular beer and the server offer a taste. Food was brought as we requested and was delicious. Great value.

Everything was great. The salmon eggs Benedict however was a little bland unfortunately for my taste but was better after adding some salt and pepper.

We had reservations for four on a cold, rainy night. Three of us arrived and we were told we could not be seated until the fourth person arrived. There were empty tables and booths everywhere! Why wouldn't you want us to be seated and start serving us drinks and appetizers right away? Plus, we had a reservation -- I could see if we just walked in and there was limited seating available.

I was really disappointed in the brunch here. I have been to GPB in awhile and this time (the food) just wasn't great. I had gotten the fried fish sandwich and to be blunt it was slimy and greasy. My friend got the BLT which was served on the same bun as what I had. Odd--usually it is on bread. I will probably not return or recommend.

Love the atmosphere and the neighborhood location is fun! Food was a bit of a disappointment though, I asked for the dish without the pork belly and yet it came with it, server took it off quickly though so all was okay.

Really tasty brunch. My companion had a BLT that she really liked (excellent bacon and very light on the mayo). I had a terriffic salmon eggs benedict.
Service was not on par with the food. We sat for a long time before the waiter took our order. Our coffee mugs went empty a couple of times and we had to flag down our waiter to get refills.
This was our first time at Green Pig. l don't want to condemn it from one experience.
We will go back again.

We arrived early on a Friday evening. Our server was attentive and helpful. We decided to try several small plates and appetizers in lieu of the main entrees. The bone marrow toast and chicken and biscuits (albeit the biscuits weren’t as fresh as they could be) stood out. The portions were plentiful.

It would have been a lovely evening but ended badly when my dining companion was gender policed when they tried to use the restroom. Based on the discrimination, we won’t be returning nor can we recommend Green Pig to friends.

My recommendation to management would be to invest in diversity training for their employees.

The food was brought out quickly but cooked perfectly! We got the chicken and waffles and the shrimp and grits, with a side of biscuits. The jelly that came with the biscuits was interesting and had a little spice to it.

We always reserve special occasions (Anniversary, Valentines Day, Celebrations) for Green Pig because we love the food, drinks, and especially the service, so much! Staff is friendly and knowledgeable about everything on the menu. The chef does a great job of keeping some favorites and classics while mixing in some of the local and seasonal dishes that are great to try!

Went on an uncrowded Monday evening with friends. Caught the tail end of happy hour for a well priced glass of wine. The table ordered a variety of dishes including the steak tartare, Mac and cheese, fried chicken, beet salad, and meatballs. All the staff were friendly and prompt. Food was all so tasty, pretty, and served more quickly than expected. We never had to wait for refills. Great experience. Beet salad was especially delish!

This was our 3rd time at GPB but it ended up being the last. We asked for a quiet table for 4 and they placed us right next to the bar, the noisiest place in this already noisy restaurant. We ordered 4 entrees and only 3 came. Took us 10 min to grab the attention of our waiter who was busy making cocktails. Finally we were told that the kitchen was cooking the 4th entree now. So one of us was forced to wait 30 min for his food, while the others ate. We paid full price and full tip for regular, slightly greasy not at all outstanding food and terrible service, so we plan not to come back.
