The Green Bean Restaurant & Catering
Love the staff. I miss some of the old menu items like the salmon. Otherwise excellent
A few friends went to the Green Bean to celebrate a belated birthday this week and had a tremendous experience. The food was fantastic, apparently there is a new chef. I had the Caesar Salad with Blackened Salmon, it was delicious. My girlfriend had the Caesar Salad with Grilled Shrimp which she also loved. The gentleman in the crowd had the Beef Dip with Fries & Gravy, there wasn't a drop left on his plate either.
Our server was fast, efficient and courteous. It was a big noisy in the restaurant, likely due to the fact that seating was almost at capacity.
We will be back.
The Green Bean was an excellent choice for lunch with business associates. The service was amazing, the food was delicious and we enjoyed the high-top seating located by the bar. Try the Caesar Salad with your choice of protein, it was absolutely delicious. Love the dressing!
A perfect spot, for great food at reasonable prices.
I would like to request that they get high chairs and change tables for those with young kids.
Good little restaurant downtown Calgary. Nice selection of healthy food on the menu, and easy enough to get a reservation on a Friday.
Went for breakfast. Over priced for what you get. Plate was over loaded with 'hash brown's' to fill the space. Poor service from unfriendly staff. Won't be back. Left feeling hungry. Back to Sonoma on 9th Ave next time I want breakfast.
I eat at The Green Bean at least two times per month and have for the past three years. I have never been disappointed. The service is supreme and the food is some of the best I’ve ever tasted. I am always impressed!
While the interior is a bit cold and stark, the service is always friendly and the food is always excellent.
Great food and service and good value too!
Husband said he had the best burger he’s ever eaten at Green Bean. Good value for food, quick service.
Very fast service and attentive to water top-ups. Best part was very delicious food. Green Bean never disappoints. Must be best value lunch in downtown. Fresh, large portions for a very reasonable price.
It's almost always very loud but the reason I went there was for the cob salad which they no longer have on thier menu so I was disappointed as were my 3 friends as I had told them we had to go there for that salad. Waitress was fine but new so one persons gravy was missed initially. The other 3 people said that thier food was salty and my salad was just ok. If they bring back the cob salad I will go back as it is close to my office.
I used to be a regular at this restaurant. They have changed the menu and all my favourite foods are gone. The Cobb Salad, Salmon, and the Portabella mushroom burger. Some of the servers are great.
It was a magnificent, warm day. We sat on the patio. You can hear the traffic but it wasn't too bad.
The food was ok, not spectacular. I had the cajun salmon and my colleauge had the steak sandwich.
I love this place mostly for the patio. However I am very sad that they have removed their salmon fillet from the menu. You can throw it on a salad but it's not the same.
My friend and I ordered salads for lunch. They were both very filling and the ingredients were fresh and original. We loved them. Definitely will be back again!
We went on May 15, the first really nice day after the never-ending winter and chose to sit outside. Service was very good, attentive but not obtrusive. One disappointment though, we wanted to order calamari for appy, was told the menu was being changed and the calamari was unavailable. We ordered the spring rolls and they were OK, not great or outstanding. I had the turkey pot pie, it was pretty good. My friend had the fish and chips, she really enjoyed it. With the weather, the food and the service, overall a very good experience.
We really liked the atmosphere, we had a good lunch and the service was excellent.
Making the reservation was easy and the restaurant could accommodate to all our requirements.
The food here is always great, and the service was very good. We were able to eat our lunch and return to work for 1:00. This restaurant is one of the best options on the west side of Calgary's downtown.
Green Bean serves a great breakfast. Menu has typical breakfast items and healthy options. Service and food is consistently good when I visit.
Decent food, though they are a bit slow. Service is average (I think they’re a bit complacent with service because there’s little competition nearby).
It’s WAY too loud in there...generally only go there if I can’t get a table anywhere else.
A girlfriend and I met for lunch and both had salads. My choice was the Cobb Salad which was massive and delicious. My girlfriend had the Caesar Salad with Blackened Chicken and spoke very highly of the dish. The Green Bean is a regular lunch location for me due to the fact that they consistently deliver high quality meals in a prompt manner allowing for the limitations of a normal 1 hour lunch timeframe.
Excellent food and service - the acoustics are poor, however, it is difficult to conduct a conversation when the restaurant is full.
Food was bad, reheated chicken and mashed potatoes, likely from a catering job the night before. The salmon sandwich was too salty as well.
Food is fantastic. I have been coming with my friends for a few years during the summer so we can sit out on the patio, birthdays and Christmas lunch. Love everything about this gem from service to food. Thank you.
This restaurant was located perfectly to have easy access for all participants. Service fast and food was great. Lots of variety and the daily salmon special was fantastic. Have another meeting next week and we will be going there for lunch.
The phone and the service was great. They didn't have my reservation that I made on line and was confirmed but luckily there was room.
The service was terrible and food was delivered with identified allergies
Happy we chose Green been, the food was delicious and the service friendly.
Good value, good quality. Quick service for business lunch time.
It had been about a year since I went to the Green Bean. It used to be a place my colleagues and I could go and enjoy. What a total disappointment this meal was. The food quality has completely gone down hill to where I couldn't even finish my meal it was that unappetizing. Our server acted like any request was a huge imposition which did not help make the experience any better.
I will not be coming back here unless huge changes are made.
I have always had a good experience here. Good food, service and not too loud.
Open table had us request a high or low table and the restaurant did not receive that information
Great place excellent waitress....can't wait to go again
Table of 4. Had the chicken and was pretty tough. The rest of table was happy with their meal. Fish and chips are really good.
Just great food for everyone and at convenient place.
Very good food; quick, but not too quick, and fantastic service. A great place for lunch!
Took a while for service to come around. Food was good and staff were accommodating. Just had to wait for a while and tried a few times for waitress' attention before they'd come over.
Great spot for a quick lunch with lots of menu choices with variety. Waitress was very friendly and accommodating for changes to my dish.
Definitely an off day for the chef, my hamburger that is supposed to be a "fresh ground" patty most certainly is not. Preformed and frozen....It was so hard I had to get it down with ketchup and my friends rice soup had brush bristles in it, she found 2. The service was good as usual and made up for the huge lack in food quality.
