We know there is a way to use traditional ingredients familiar to Soul Food enthusiasts, but presented as a healthier version of everyone’s favorites. We've developed recipes that incorporate the best aspects of traditional dishes allowing the natural flavors to shine through.
Wherever possible, we are using local, organic and sustainably produced ingredients. We support independently owned, local businesses wherever we can. We are committed to limiting the carbon footprint created by our business and have made a number of choices to meet that goal.
We feature live music on weekends with local artists covering a range of musical genres from Soul to R&B, Folk and Singer-Songrwiters.
Our food was beyond delicious everything from the first appetizer to our main course was outstanding the brussel sprouts are the best I've ever eaten and I would venture to say the best in the city the tacos were fresh and delicious the vegan menu is one of the most diverse I've seen in a very long time a fantastic experience from beginning to end
First time since the move from Chestnut Hill. Love the new space. Will be back soon.
Great food and ambiance!
Good Place, Great Food, and Nice Atlasphere. I would most definitely go back again!
Great food. Everyone enjoyed their dinner. Brussel Sprouts rule! My daughter (not big on veggies) even liked them. My son (college student) was raving about the pulled chicken. The chocolate avocado dessert will leave you wondering how they did that. Great place!
Yes, good food and nice atmosphere. Service was attentive and not too expensive.
Great lunch spot: Limited menu but everything is tasty.
The atmosphere at Green Soul was the best part! Beautiful decor, and there was a live singer. The drinks were great. It was an overall relaxed environment, and I felt like I could actually enjoy dinner with a friend instead of being rushed out like many busy restaurants in the city. The food was also good. Overall, I had an amazing time and would highly recommend!
Great as always. I visit often. I always order the Brussel Sprouts, my fav, salmon but this time I had the rainbow trout.. Delish! I always have the chocolate avocado Mousse YUM!
Great place. Loved the food the service and the atmosphere.
As a strict vegan, Green Soul is my new favorite place to dine. Yummy, healthy, clean, and accessible gourmet-vegan dishes in a beautiful restaurant with knowledgeable staff! #HighQualityCusine #ByThePeopleAndForThePeople
Great pre concert at The Met dinner!
Very GF friendly!
I always recommend Green Soul, have taken many friends there for their first visit. It is a calm comfortable environment with food, good music, friendly staff.
Neighborhood gem, great food and great space, highly recommended
Good place for friends good food and vegetarian friendly
This was my first time at Green Soul and I will definitely come back. The for was tasty and had an interesting flare of dressed up soul food. The service was quick and our server was very accommodating. We were there to see an "Emotional Healing" poetry jam that I thoroughly enjoyed.
Excellent atmosphere. Live entertainment with an indoor outdoor dining room. Great drinks and good creative food for a reasonable price. Really close to the Met. Great place to wait if you drop off the kids for a concert. Total package!
Were gleaming bathrooms whole from a problem. Large suction noise and . Smells. Not good
We had a large group so take this with a grain of salt. They had the restaurant next door have a leak into their bathroom and they do not have a door into the shared bathroom. Sitting next to the restrooms, it was intervals of very loud vacuuming the entire 1.5 hours we were there. The food took a while to arrive, which again, we were a large group. But the only waitress/bartender was obviously overextended and was given tables across the large floor plan. We were also never informed of side options other than side salads for our sandwiches. I would go back to give it another chance because the food was good.
Servers knowledgeable & enthusiastic, but not polished.( No spoon with soup, no spoon with coffee, etc). Noisy. Good music , but too loud. Need to stock regular cream for coffee/tea. Alcohol portions small
I am a vegetarian, so I appreciated that there were choices for me. However, I wish there had been more variety in the menu.
It is an adorable place. The service is friendly and efficient.
Great spot. Interesting food and decor.
This restaurant is simply wonderful. The menu is very good and the staff is responsive and sincere. I appreciated the live music.
I really like this place and will return many more times to try all the things on their menu. It's nice to have a health-focused comfort food restaurant down town! Oh and love the atmosphere as well.
Great meal! Great service! Wonderful staff! Z was a fantastic waitress! Really a perfect evening... we'll be back SOON!
We love this place. Food is always interesting and well prepared. Service is prompt, genuine and unpretentious. Overall a great place unless you are looking for intimate/quiet (it is not). The live music was excellent. Will definitely be back many times
I was absolutely pleased with my entire experience this pass Saturday at Green Soul. I had lunch there, went to SOUTH for a few glasses of wine and then returned back to GS for dinner. I just wanted to enjoy my Saturday and get out for fresh air and GS helped me do just that. Thank you Mike (bartender) for your food recommendations and pleasant service. Thank you Doc and staff for your professional hospitality. Great music great vibes. You’ve just got yourself a loyal new customer. Oh and yes I’ve already started spreading the word about this gem!
First off let me say how much I love the Bynum Brothers. They are so dope. I’ve loved them since Zanzibar Blue. I’ve been to SOUTH several times and decided to go to Green Soul with my date who is very particular about service. Welp! He loved it! Our waitress was amazing. She was bubbly, on point with drinks, gave great suggestions and wasn’t a nag. She came by to be sure we were ok just in time. It was pretty loud which was to be expected since it was a Friday night. It looked like someone booked the upstairs for a private affair so I wasn’t bothered by the noise at all. Now the food! AAAAHHHHMAZEBALLS! If you don’t know that means it was very good, lol My salmon was cooked perfectly. I had never had a brussels hash but it was so tasty! I am a Brussels sprouts fanatic. Every resturant I go to I MUST order some. I’ve even turned my date into a Brussels sprouts lover lol. We really enjoyed them. And then came dessert. Well baaaybee! Talk about delicious 😋. We had the sweet potato donuts and the chocolate mousse. The donuts came out nice and hot and we decided to pair it with the mousse and it was sooooo good. I want to thank Green Soul for a wonderful experience! We will definitely be back and I’m telling all of my friends about it.
Ended up sitting at the bar because my date was late. Mike took care of us and was wonderful. Drinks and apps were amazing!
This was an exquisite eating experience.
The freshness,color,clean and texture of the food was beyond words. Beyond delicious. Cheers to the chef.🍾
Green Soul is awesome. If I could rate it 5 stars twice I would. From the great customer service to the delicious menu. I would recommmend and it’s my new fav joint ! Haha!
This restaurant has a nice atmosphere and delicious food
I don’t have enough words to highly praise this restaurant. Unique, socially responsible, absolutely delicious food...wonderful, caring wait staff. This was a by-chance treasure for my wife and I stumble upon during our recent visit to Philly. It will become our Philly go-to whenever we visit. It’s that good!
I had been here for dinner and found the food, the vibe, and the service quite good. So, decided to try it for Mother’s Day brunch. I have to say that I was disappointed the second time around.
This time the service was rather slow and the waiter seemed distracted. The food was uninteresting in its taste. I had a special Jambalaya, which was bland in flavor and came out cold. The chicken in it was chewy, over cooked and dry. I had to have it reheated and asked for some hot spices on the side. Appetizers like crab avocado toast lacked any flavor, was skimpy, and sloppily placed on dry cracker like bread, two tiny pieces on an oversized dish. The chili cauliflower was like eating general tsao’s flavored syrup on the vegetable and the presentation again was sloppy, just scooped onto a plate. My son had a waffle with fried chicken which he liked, however.
It wasn’t terrible, but the place lacked any finesse as did the food. It’s a shame because it has far better potential than its performance today.
My family and I had an amazing experience with the Mother’s Day Brunch!
I love this place, I was a little disappointed that they no longer had the Brussels sprouts. I also order my all time favorite soup add salmon and didn’t get the salmon.
Mother’s Day Eve
I always enjoy my food and service here! The menu is full of different healthy option meals that leave you full and satisfied. I can’t wait to go back during the times when they have live music!!!
The food here is just excellent and they handle all dietary requests beautifully! I follow an Auto-Immune Protocol Diet and they mix and match with ease. I also can not handle the hot pepper spices and they prepare mine without. We eat "clean" (minimally processed/organic/etc) and this is my go-to restaurant. Brought the grandmothers here last weekend, ages 87 and 88, and they loved it, too! From decor to food to service, all excellent. And did I mention how kind, caring and efficient the service is?! Really, the best place in town!
Excellent place very energetic and their menu covers all Basis. Green Soul is the perfect name.
