Keep up the great work! New menu is amazing. Try the swordfish and scallops. Both are packed with great flavors and are very fresh. Great summertime dishes. Will be back to try the other dishes.
Great Place – Great atmosphere, very cozy. The lamb was amazing, and our server was great. Surely, we will dine there again. Good wine selection too
Hollywood quality; better price! – I have traveled and experienced many fine dining luxuries, however, Green Street Tavern is one of the most humbling experiences I have ever had. The prices were immaculate (about $15-20 per entree) and the portion size was appropriate (not a tiny tasters plate; perfect size). The service was wonderful and the atmosphere was so upscale/cozy...? I really liked it. My fiance, who is impossible to excite, actually had positive feedback and insisted I take my mother and grandmother which I will be doing this weekend. A must try. I will make this place a new add-on to my weekly outings. =)
Just walked by... – My wife and I were looking for a new place to eat in Pasadena and came across the Green Street Tavern. The food was great and the service was exceptional. From the soup special to the divine deserts, we had an amazing time. We have found our new favorite place. :)
Total Disappointment – After reading the rave reviews, I was excited to go here to celebrate my graduation, but was sorely disappointed. They took forever getting our entrees out! We had to get up 3 separate times to ask someone to check on our food because our waiter was clearly avoiding eye contact with our table. When they finally started bringing our food out, the portions were tiny and they were delayed in serving a few of us. By the time the rest of us finally got our dishes, the others had already finished with their meals! The worst part was that they weren't even apologetic. Our waiter literally seemed to just avoid us the rest of the night. I was so embarrassed to have brought my friends & family here. We all left hungry and with a bad taste in our mouths. Won't ever go back.
Worth it! Great service and Food. – Saturday afternoon my husband and I decided to go out for a nice dinner date. We read all the reviews and decided that we had to try Green Street Tavern. I called and made a reservation. We were seated promptly at our reservation time and were greeted with huge smiles. We had the pleasure of having James serve us. He gave us a brief run down of the restaurant and even his favorite dish. We started with the Gnocchi, which was amazing. I had the Lamb Sausage with pesto risotto. It was great, so much flavor, and rich flavors. My husband took the recommendation of James and had the pork chops. He was not disappointed at all. The yams were great, and the sauce was delicious. We have never experienced service that was so warm and attentive. We definitely will be returning! The price is perfect for the service and quality of food.
One of the advantages of our layout is our ability to keep a close eye on guest's experience and make sure they are happy. We try our best to provide superior service. Our food and service is what separates us and guests like yourself applaud our efforts, it means a lot to us. Glad you stopped by, we hope to serve you again soon.
Citysearch Editorial Review – Pasadena professionals and other neighborhood sophisticates--including the mayor of Pasadena and (ahem) Dr. Drew--gather for some serious wines and lots of conversation in this small, popular neighborhood spot just off the main drag of Colorado Boulevard. The tiny space sets a relaxed yet polished tone with recessed lighting casting a soft glow over soft leather chairs and banquettes in colors brown, cream and amber. The glass storefront offers entertaining views of Green Street and the two sidewalk deuces are perfect for summer nights lingering over a bottle of Napa cabernet. The Cal-Med menu features blue cheese walnut tart, crab and citrus salad, duck confit quesadilla, wild mushroom gnocci, harissa glazed tuna steak and Merlot braised short ribs.
Best Restaurant in Pasadena/LA – My girlfrineds and I celebrated my birthday at Green Street Tavern. It was one of the best dinning experiences I have had in a long time. The food was great. The service and staff were amazing. Totally love this place. I am defenitly going to be a regular. 5-Stars in all catagories.
We try to simplify our purpose: Provide great food and great service. We use fresh and good ingredients, and we never stop striving to improve service. Thanks for the comments. The Staff at Green Street Tavern.
Great Food, Great service, Great atmosphere!!! – The food is excellent! The porkchop was excellent and the candied yam and the greens that came with the dish was perfect compliments to this dish. There's nothing bad i can say about the food because everything was perfectly seasoned and cooked properly. I will definitely go back to try everything else on the menu that executive chef Mike came up with. The entire staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and the owner was very attentive and helpful. Great dining experience overall!!! I recommend everyone to try this place!!!
Such a welcoming Place – It was a Saturday night, I was with my wife and her parents; we had no luck finding a place to eat, so luckly we walked passed this beautiful resturant (Green Street Tavern); the place was packed, I walked in to try my luck before giving up and calling it a night. A polite well dressed gentelman approached me and greeted me with a smile. I actually told him my story, out of care, he arranged for us to sit at the bar, offered us wine, after waiting for 30-mintues they gave us a table. We spent over an hour there and had a great time. You can say they made our night. It was a "Wow" experience. The food was excellent. This is a special place, I am looking forward to my next visit.
