Nice place in a nice area

Nice atmosphere. They have a good selection of beer on tap, including Michigan beers and some decent wine selection. The food menu is less extensive, but varied enough. Does take some time for the food to arrive. Recommend the patio, when the weather is pleasant. Plenty of parking in the back.

Last night my friend and I had dinner at The Green Well. This wasn't my first visit so I was prepared, it's always busy and noisy. We were able to get a table fairly quickly because we opted to eat inside. The patio is nice but I'm an inside eater. Our server, Cassie, was very friendly and helpful. I ordered... More

I've eaten at the Green Well several times and always enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. Last month we ate outdoors on the patio, which is really pleasant. I had the yummy fish tacos and I recommend them! Eating indoors is pretty noisy and I much prefer the patio when the weather is nice.

My husband & I visit this restaurant frequently. We always order the same thing, because we love it and it's consistent every time. We split the Smoked Beef Brisket Sandwich $14 and add Truffle Fries $4 to our order. It's a lot of food for one, unless you are very hungry. Now $14 for a sandwich is pricey, but it... More

This is a perfect blend of health foods and haute cuisine. Everything that can be made on the premises is and all food is utterly interesting and delicious from apetizers to deserts. We've been here several times when visiting Grand Rapids from New Jersey ... for both lunch and dinner. There are always new selections on the menu. This is... More

We continue to dine here because the food is so delicious and the menu has an interesting variety of dishes. While the wait staff are attentive and busy, the restaurant is crowded, always busy and very noisy making conversation difficult at times

Great food, great service. Loved it! We were in the area and were impressed with the reviews. We had a bit of a wait but it was worth the wait.

I hadn't been to the Green Well in some time and was pleased that it was even better then I remembered. They were able to seat our party of 5 outdoors as requested. The server, Sydney, did a great job. She was very helpful and pleasant. I tried the Brazilian Black Bean Stew, on her recommendation, and it was so... More

Seriously the Truffle Fries are Ridiculous. We had lunch, and I had the burger. It was very, very good, and cooked to perfection. Ingredients seem to be great. My Iced Tea was maybe an 8 out of 10, and the place is expensive. I guess you get what you pay for, because I would go back in a second.

Went with friends and had a great lunch. Food was slow coming but we were pleasantly surprised. Good presentation, tasty and hot. Atmosphere is lacking, but service is good, servers are friendly and well-trained.
