“Good grub, loud atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2012

Good menu and reasonable prices. Went late for a Saturday dinner. We were seated right away. It was a bit too loud though.

“The ' New' Green Street not nearly as interesting as the original.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012 via mobile

Perhaps It's unfair to compare the new with the old. But...this version has a pleasant but bland decor and the spicy carribean food has been replaced by less interesting fare.

“Don't walk by this one.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

Would have walked right by the restaurant if I didn't know it was there. Peeked inside and saw a nice crowd. We were seated at a nice private table. Wait staff was friendly. Got the appetizer special (tuna tartare) and the dinner special (wild boar) - both were fabulous!

“While not terrible the food was not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

Dined at Green Street on a Saturday night, the busy time for chefs. Got the chop salad, not the usual mix of ingredients and it didn't come together for me. My wife's lobster spring rolls tasted as though they were bought from a Chinese restaurant food supplier. My roast pork was underdone and a petite portion, my wife's beef shortrib over rosemary au gratin was better. The service was good and we've always liked the space going back to when it was the Green Street Grill, a fun and funky place.

“Great atmosphere, good food, service and beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2011

I stopped in here on a beeradvocate pub crawl. There are probably about 8 taps of beer and all were of high quality. It looks like a little hole in the wall from the outside but dont let that sway you.

The bartender was very friendly and accomidating. There were multiple food specials on that night. I had a steak which was cooked correctly and very tasty.

The staff were also on top of everything and frequently checked back to see if anything was needed, and this was on a Friday night!
