Haven't been here in a few years so we decided to stop by without a reservation for lunch on Easter Sunday. We were seated in about 10 minutes. Staff were very attentive and friendly. The food was very good. Just as I remembered. Gotta try their ahi tuna sandwich. The wasabi aioli is incredible! Use it to dip your fries... More

Green Street has been around for years and has always been very consistent! They are known all over town for their Diane Salad. They have a full bar and indoor or patio seating. It is casual and great for families or business dining. They serve lunch and dinner take reservations.

Best pancakes and eggs! Nuff said! The Diane salad is talked about in Pasadena circles as if the city owned the darned thing. It's a hit when you are the talk of the town.

Can't figure out why this restaurant is rated so highly, but perhaps it was an off night for them. First of all the place was noisy, and that always makes a meal less enjoyable for me. One of our party ordered the lamb chops, which were overcooked and a little tough. I had a grilled portabello sandwich, which I didn't... More

I've eaten here several times and have always left satisfied. GSR is a little hard to find. And forget about free parking though the parking structure next door costs just about $4. They take reservations. If you don't opt for a reservation and have to wait there is some seating for this. Thery have both indoor and patio seating. Know... More

Good diversified menu, but the Diane salad or cornucopia salad is not to be missed. Sunday brunch available.

Friends had told us about this small restaurant and it was well worth hunting down. We had a couple of their celebrated appetizers - the Conquistador bisque and the calimari - relying on the great waiter to recommend what is popular, and they were delicious.

We moved to this neighborhood several months ago, and regularly walked by the inviting windows of Green Street Tavern. Finally, when out of town guests were visiting, we made a reservation - and we'll definitely be back! The place was packed, with a private party in one room and therefore boisterously loud. But the menu was inviting - and every... More
