A Restaurant Coasting on Past Success
I remember Green's when it was unique, interesting, and there were always items on the menu that were fresh and exciting. That was then. I still go back periodically, but have been disappointed every time. It seems that Green's is coasting along, still bringing in customers, but not producing anything resembling cutting-edge dining. It's a shame. Without it's location, I'm guessing the restaurant wouldn't survive. Today, I found the menu to be dull, the food lackluster and bland, the service friendly but very spotty (I waited a long time for our server to check in after presenting entrees, which never happened, and finally flagged her down to ask her to add items listed for my entree on the menu but missing from the plate). Not particularly acceptable, especially given the prices.
This mediocre experience was capped off by having a staff member ask us to vacate our table at 1 hour and 45 minutes, as we were preparing to leave anyway (notably there were a number of empty tables and there were only a few people waiting - the request was a mystery).
Overall, my 3-star rating feels like a bit of a gift. Green's has done, and can do, much better.
