Was expecting the occasional wow factor but all in all disappointingly average.

We were there very early and the place had just opened the staff were just gearing up for service.

Bread and oil/balsamic, moussaka, cheesecake were all decent by not very inspiring.
Wine also run of the mill.
Prices in line with gastro pubs.

No real reason to return given the choice in Manchester.

Such a cliche but like most of them, it's based on a truth - you don't have to be vegetarian to realise this is one of the best places to eat in Manchester. Had what was essentially an extremely posh pie and chips but heck, what a pie and chips. All three courses were scrumptious, good wine and easy service. Our waitress was new and struggled slightly at first, but she was friendly and professional so it would be unfair to moan. Excellent value too. Always liked Simon Rimmer on the telly and was really chuffed to eat at one of his gaffs. Just round the corner too! We'll be back.

We always make a point to go to Greens when visiting Manchester (usually 1-2/year). The food is always very good, though this time, it was not the stellar flavors we've experienced in the past. I always am impressed at the variety of dishes on the menu - it makes it hard to choose! But our party of 4 all agreed, it wasn't quite as good as usual.
Friendly staff, nice wine list, good prices. We'll still return, don't doubt that.

A fantastic restaurant ( which just happens to be vegetarian :)
Excellent unstuffy service combined with beautiful food makes Greens somewhere I'll look forward to returning to.
Thanks to all the team for making our anniversary special :)

I'd never been to a vegetarian restaurant before (not being a vegetarian!) but this was amazing - a really wide range of dishes, presented beautifully. Staff were attentive and knew the menu very well, giving detailed description of the dishes. It's not cheap, but you get what you pay for, and this was excellent. Shame I live over 100 miles away!
