Great Brunch, Slow Service

I ordered the French Toast and a Bellini. My friends ordered the Eggs Benedict and BLT. We all enjoyed our dishes. The frites that were served with the Eggs Benedict were delicious! I would return just for the frites. I rated Green Onion as "Very Good" instead of "Excellent" because the service was... read more

I'm a local,and every time I eat at the Green Onion it is a fabulous dining experience. The Lobster Roll is to die for, but I have to tell you I have ordered all sorts of delicious meals from their eclectic menu. Vegetarians ok. They will fix you something to your liking. Great dirty martini. Love, love, love this restaurant!... More

The food offered has a French quality. We've tried many different dishes, and each one was wonderful! Prices are moderate. Highly recommend!

We ate here during the "between meals" timeframe around 4:30PM on a Friday. We were seated promptly and the server was very friendly and able to answer all questions. Overall, service was a little slow given how empty the restaurant was. The food was very good, but the portions were rather small and a little pricey (there's better value on... More

Really awesome tomato bisque with an awesome "bread" cheese. Nice wine selections. Service was friendly and timely without being pushy.

I happened upon this place on accident several years ago and I still love it. Small and quaint. Service is amazing. But that Lobster Roll!! Oh my goodness....With the fresh cut french fries....They make their own ketchup! Who does that? It's not a set price. It's by the market price. I don't care...I still buy it every time I go...

We have heard rave reviews about this place. The place is small and very dark and very loud. Service was very slow. The food was very, very, good. But... I had the Lobster Roll and it came with a small serving of melted butter. I asked for more and she came back about 5 - 8 minutes later and brought... More

First, the better part of our review. The food was very good; my wife and I shared the mussels as an appetizer which were delicious. Sweet, tasty, and the wine and onion broth was very good. Our main courses were likewise good; for me the duck main course which was excellent and for my wife the gnocchi pasta which she... More

Four of us chose this restaurant because No Frill Bar and Grill next door was packed. The menu looked so promising, with lots of gourmet overtones, but nothing was very satisfying. Very skimpy appetizers at $12 and entree portions were also very sparse -- Grildled Halloumi appetizer was a joke. My fillet mignon at $32 was properly cooked, but not... More
