Had to wait about 25 mins to put in order. Waiter spilled drink all over me and then had to clean up and pay for the drink. Very inattentive staff and waiter seemed pretty unconcerned that he had dumped a whole drink on me. Really lousy experience and wont be coming back.

Overall a great experience. My wife and I stopped in to celebrate some good news. I had a great cocktail and she had a great mocktail.

After that, we had dessert and both were A+... Bread pudding and the cheesecake.

The place was slammed, but the staff was on top of things.

Thanks guys, great experience.

We appreciated the spacious outdoor eating area and the food was delicious. The lobster and hearts of palm dip—divine. We will return.

We were disappointed with the food this time. Salads were watery and low in flavor. The Mac and cheese dishes had strange flavor profiles. The gnocchi dish had an unexpected sweetness rather than savory taste. I enjoyed my diver scallop dish but my husband said the only thing he liked was his cocktail.
It was a very different experience the last time we visited the restaurant.

Just ok...had much better meals here in the past. Schnitzel was almost tasteless and burgers were nothing special. Maybe it was an off night for the staff, but I wouldn’t rush back,

Great food! Service was terrible. I was raising my hand multiple tiene to catch someone’s attention, no one looked over! Had to walk to the kitchen to look for our server that disappeared for almost 30 minutes. Didn’t ask us once if we wanted another drink.

Wonderful food, great service, and very comfortable even though we were seated outside (with a heater). Loved it, and will definitely eat there again

Normally I love Green Pig, but this experience over Mother's Day weekend was truly awful, esp for a dinner which was supposed to be a celebration among family who had not seen each other in a long time. We had a very early reservation and were one of the first table seated outdoors but for some reason they gave the heaters to other tables before us so it was pretty chilly. The server was absolutely terrible-- super disingenuous person who came across as fake nice-- and who also rushed us through our meal. To cap it all off something we ate made us feel queasy (it may have been the super greasy Brussel sprouts). My family doesn't want to return and I don't blame them, and I felt bad that it was such a bad experience for the one night we planned to eat out at a restaurant together.

The food was okay - not bad but not good, just okay. Definitely not worth the price, the menu is very overpriced for what you get. The server rushed us the entire meal and was not very friendly. We were well aware of the time limit per table, due to the restaurant's COVID rules in place, yet the server continuously stopped by to move us along. That got very annoying very quickly. The one positive was they have a good wine selection and the pours were generous. Would recommend going for drinks, not food.

My husband and I celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary here. We also celebrated our 4th and 5th before moving out of the country (Mexico City). It was our first anniversary to celebrate since we’ve move back to the U.S. and it was a no brainer to celebrate here. We were happy to be back-the food (so delish!) and service (thanks Ali!). We enjoyed the chicken slider, tomato soup, confit and schnitzel. The complimentary dessert was delish and the drinks were great (the best margarita I’ve had since being back from Mexico!) We were so happy to be back to our “spot” to celebrate and look forward more anniversaries and other special occasions at Green Pig!

Made a reservation, table wasn't ready when we got there. Got a seat at the bar while we waited. Cocktails were sub-par for the price. Wait staff were very confused about the transition from the bar to the table. Food was ok but kind of bland, definitely not a good value. Many more places nearby that have better service and food for the price.

Outdoor tables are near the street. Indoor space has a concrete floor. So there's some noise wherever you are.

But the food is outstanding and the service is friendly. Definitely recommend.

Went here to celebrate Mother's Day a week early with my family for brunch. The location was perfect. We sat outside and enjoyed family time. The server was attentive and gave us her opinion which was great. I was not "wow'd" by the food. I wish it was a little better. The food wasn't terrible but I don't think I would visit again. But the OJ was AMAZING!

Appetizers are always strong, especially ribs. Main courses were mediocre at best this time - meat and seafood were under seasoned, and Caesar salad dressing way too fishy for my liking.

Good, not great, but I will come back for another try, probably for brunch.

Our server was terrific, very friendly and knowledgeable. My dining companion told the server she has celiac disease and ordered a burger with NO bun. The burger came WITH a bun. The runner clearly took the burger back, removed the bun, and returned in a couple of minutes. That is NOT sufficient for a person with celiac! We had to call over the server and get her to take the burger back to be totally re-fired in the kitchen. Fixed in the end, but a disappointing impression on a new customer.

Green Pig Bistro was the perfect low-key brunch spot. Sat on the back patio with 4 people at the table and it was lovely. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. My friends were impressed by the restaurant, so would definitely recommend to others.

Love Green Pig Bistro. Food is delicious, service is excellent, the glasses of wine generous. I appreciated the COVID social distancing and mask-wearing inside the restaurant. This was our first time eating inside a restaurant in a long, long time, and it was exellent.
