First time diners and we will definitely be back. Every bite of the three dishes that I ordered was delicious and my companions were also very happy with their dinners. Highly recommend!

A good overall experience but a pricey.
Energetic atmosphere, if noise is an issue for you it is a bit loud.

We were 6 people who hadn't seen each other for a long time and we were more interested in catching up than ordering food and I think that frustrated the wait staff. The food was good - but not worth the price they charged in my opinion.

We took a few co-workers who were in town and wanted to get a good meal. The food was delicious, as always. Drink selection was very good. Our waiter was great and made everyone feel at home. This is the second time I've taken my team when they've come to the area, and both times have been a really good time.

Food was only so so. Fried chicken and biscuits with honey and buffalo sauce was good. Pork chop entree with Brussels sprouts, pears, etc. was bland. Branzino fish was not great. Price did not reflect actual quality of food.

If this local bistro isn't on your go-to list of restaurants then you are in luck- you found it. Formerly a regular but moved away. In the last three years not much has changed. While there is a new chef, the quality ingredients, creative menu, and attention to detail continues to warrant your regular return.

Great for couples, groups and family dinners. The open air kitchen is within view of the main dining area is accessible for those interested, but not the focus- you are.

If you are a foodie or just want well seasoned and creative food, can go on and on.
Recommend Bone Marrow, Oysters, Pork Shank, Scallops.

Food was pretty good and the restaurant is very cute. Unfortunately, it’s overpriced for what you get. Also, we sat, ordered and had both appetizer and entree courses served in 24 minutes - we felt so rushed out the door that the meal wasn’t enjoyable.

I have never been so disappointed in a place. I have come here 10 plus times and this last time is enough. We waited 20 mins to get a drink, we hurried up and ordered food, when it came, which was relatively quick, we had to wait 10 mins for silverware, the Mac and cheese was ice cold, and the burger was good but my wife wanted ketchup. After we waited another 20 mins, I went in and requested ketchup. After another 15 minutes of waiting we decided to just leave. I have never walked We out of a place, but I did here.
What makes it worse is, what I assume was the manager, called me a berated me for leaving. After telling him I would come back and pay, I was promptly given a F-Off. wow that was surprising. Never coming back to this place. I am floored by the manager’s total disrespect.

P. EAGER Your timeline in which you mention above doesn’t even match the timeline in our system & security cameras. Your total stay was 32min. You say over an hour-NOT true. Our owner did not berate you, he simply called to ask what was wrong & why you walked out on your bill, in which you told him that you would come back just so you could tell him to “F-off”. Gist is you walked out on your bill, you didn’t pay-which is illegal & we have the right to press charges against you. And you're banned

The food portions are small, particularly in relation to the prices. They may try to seat you in one of the two bar areas, which are terrible for table dining because they don't have dedicated waitstaff in those areas and Green Pig makes little effort to provide patrons seated in those areas with good service.

Came for dinner on a Friday night and made reservations. (First timer) While sitting at the bar, waiting on my date, I received great service from the bartender. The Moscow mule was amazing! They use their own house made ginger beer. Honestly, one of my favorites. Transitioned to a table once my date arrived. I had the steak with chimichurri and my date had the diver scallops. Also ordered a side of Brussels sprouts. He was not a fan of his dish and I didn't get an opportunity to try because my dish was quite delicious and filling. Great balance of flavors and the Brussels sprouts were hearty and tender. Great service. Kitchen closes early at 10 despite restaurant closing at midnight.

Food was wonderful. The waffle was delicious. The chicken and waffle was great - though next time I'd ask for the gravy on the side so the bottom waffle piece doesn't get so soggy. Service was quick. I love the decor. We'll be back.

Hi CARLTONL: Thank you for coming in and bringing your friend. For your future visit, we have a parking garage down below the restaurant. The entrance is on Fillmore St., the parking garage is just past ScrewTop Wine Bar. Entrance/exit is a bit tight (so be careful), but usually there is plenty of spaces and best is it's free; certain times and days, there is a 2 hour limit. We hope to see you again soon!

The menu looked amazing but everything was underwhelming. The flavors were bland. I ordered the Fried Chicken special and it was flavorless. The mac and cheese was nothing special. The fried shrimp starter was the best part by far. Our waiter also kept forgetting about us too. I would not go back.

Went for Sunday brunch with a bunch of friends. Ordered cinnamon buns to share, which were dense and not tasty, especially once they got cold. Portions were generous, and service was friendly and prompt. Food came out in a timely manner, with all special requests adhered to. Did not feel rushed to clear out after we finished eating which is always nice. Overall the breakfast centric food items that the table ordered were good (e.g. grits, egg sandwiches, yogurt parfait, etc.).

The appetizer of pork ribs was delicious -- although it could use a little more bleu cheese. Gazpacho was good as well. The scallops entree was good, but not exciting.......the pancetta dust made the dish altogether too salty. I wasn't able to tell my server, as she did not come to check back on me. I would have probably exchanged it for something else because the saltiness took away from the taste of the pea puree and from the scallops themselves.

I would suggest that GREEN PIG should keep tracking the confirmed reservation of the customer since I have made the reservation through Open table on July 14 at 6:30 pm and it went through. But Green PIG front receptionist argument me that Open Table made a mistakes to the wrong date and they did not find and check their screen and did not let me in. It is disappointing. They could not check their own screen and complained about open tables and refused the customer to accept the reservation. They later realized they made the mistake and took me to the table. Time wasted and felt terrible hospitality.

This is a great neighborhood restaurant which we have been going to since they first opened. Glad to see they are now open for lunch. One recommendation though, please juggle up the menu. While there are some minor variations, a lot seems to have been on the menu for a while now.

While I requested a table in the back of the restaurant when I made the reservation we were seated in the bar area. When I asked the hostess I was told a large party showed up and was given the back. I asked what the purpose of making a reservation was and being asked, to which I was told she’d check but never got back to me.

The waiter, aka the bartender, two of them for the entire area had to be flagged down twice. And it took him about 15 min to even take our order.

The bathroom was a mess; water and towels on the floor. The only urinal had painters tape over it with a sign that it was out of order. The sink area had flakes off paper towels all over it. Oh, and the paper towel dispenser was empty. There was a sign that read “trash” with a down arrow - it seems management has trouble before with a messy bathroom. I’m sure any restaurant bathroom that doesn’t get looked after would look like that no matter how nice of an establishment.

My fried chicken appetizer was served on an over baked biscuit. The honey was completely dominated by the hot sauce which had oil bubbles in it from the oil dripping off the chicken. My flash fried and braised pork shank was so fatty I had about four bites before pushing it off the side. Under it was cream spinach reminiscent of grocery store brand frozen cream spinach. The cinnamon bun bread pudding was bland and underwhelming.

I was at this place over a year ago and I ate at the bar and the food and service were good. I’m not sure what happened and I don’t care. I will never eat there again and suggest you don’t either.

There are some very good items on the menu and some less so, but overall the food is quite good and reasonably priced. One issue that is bothersome - and most restaurants are guilty of - is the use of unsalted butter for the breads. It is widely known that nearly 50% of the population's taste buds react to unsalted butter as if it were rancid. It spoiled a brunch when the toast was already pre-buttered.
