Description: Green Street Restaurant is where Pasadenans go to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner and it's been a Pasadena tradition since 1979. It is centrally located just off South Lake Avenue and is within walking distance of hotels, the convention center, the Pasadena Playhouse and popular shopping areas. Green Street has an eclectic menu featuring savory salads (the ever popular and addicting Dianne Salad is ordered over 2,000 times per week), tasty meats, fresh fish and creative sandwiches served on wonderful breads. Guests enjoy a full bar and interesting wines by the glass on a beautiful patio or in the airy interior. Take-out and full catering services are also available.

“Excellent service - great night out.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

My husband and I live in Pasadena and have noted Green Street many times, always saying "we should go there..". We finally did last week. Had a fantastic night out. Excellent service - food was delicious (four words - goat...cheese...mashed potatoes). Our waiter was great and recommended some really nice wine. We loved this restaurant because it's tucked away on the alley behind Lake Ave. Great place that is unique to Pasadena - we look forward to returning.

“Enjoyable Easter lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Haven't been here in a few years so we decided to stop by without a reservation for lunch on Easter Sunday. We were seated in about 10 minutes. Staff were very attentive and friendly. The food was very good. Just as I remembered. Gotta try their ahi tuna sandwich. The wasabi aioli is incredible! Use it to dip your fries too. Great spot to eat good food, it's attached to the parking structure, and the service is great.

“A Pasadena Jewel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

Green Street has been around for years and has always been very consistent! They are known all over town for their Diane Salad. They have a full bar and indoor or patio seating. It is casual and great for families or business dining. They serve lunch and dinner take reservations.

“Great breakfast and lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

Best pancakes and eggs! Nuff said!
The Diane salad is talked about in Pasadena circles as if the city owned the darned thing. It's a hit when you are the talk of the town.

“Not That Impressed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

Can't figure out why this restaurant is rated so highly, but perhaps it was an off night for them. First of all the place was noisy, and that always makes a meal less enjoyable for me. One of our party ordered the lamb chops, which were overcooked and a little tough. I had a grilled portabello sandwich, which I didn't like that much either. The food was very average for the price of the place and I would not go back again. Service also was average.
