Very nice neighborhood restaurant

This was walking distance to our hotel. Cozy ambience. Interesting menu. Everything we ordered was 100% delicious. Great dessert choice -- white chocolate bread pudding.

My husband chose the very decadent Nutella /banana on grilled brioche. It was as good as it sounds! I opted for healthy oatmeal which came embellished with fruits and nuts. But it was not very flavorful and the fruit wasn't plentiful Perhaps it just suffered in comparison!

The food is good, though they have raised the prices so much that it is almost time to skip Green Street Restaurant forever. But if the increased prices weren't enough of a problem, the restaurant is being remodeled. During the lunch hour rush, when every table both inside and out was filled, the contractor was working with a power saw.... More

The food here was excellent! I had the salmon and my boyfriend had the steam and they both were great! The goat cheese smashed potatoes and the zucchini bread were also delicious. Would definitely come back next time I'm in town!

It's pretty rare to find reasonable pricing at restaurants doing anything interesting creative with their offerings. But it seems possible at Green Street. The pork chops were a tad chewy but the maple/mustard saucing was a hit with our party. The caper sauce for the branzino fish was very tasty. Great breads. Fine, attentive, friendly service. Relatively limited but broad... More

This is a Pasadena institution!!.. Love the Diane Salad and zuchini bread, but everything is good. Soups are always unique. Service is always top notch. It is worth the wait, but I have often just done take out!! There is a 15 min parking zone right in front, which is perfect for take out.

Hard to find this street, but once you do you will come back many times. Great varied menu, something for everyone and the bread is delicious.

I have never had a bad meal at this restaurant. Recently had the salmon Club for the first time, it tasted great and was a great value!

Green Street is a Pasadena favorite. One of their salads, the Dianne Salad, is now sold at Trader Joe’s. They have a full menu of New American, the standards and a few classics. I usually get an omelet when I go, but I always get their zucchini bread. That alone is worth the trip.
