    Menu provided wide variety. Our party of 5 each ordered something different and it was all really good and a generous portion. The background music was subtle and really quite good. Our server was very knowledgeable and respectfully attentive. Three of us were from Houston and two from Calgary. The two from Calgary had never eaten at the Green Bean and said they will definitely be back and they are spreading the word. While we were there for lunch and we didn't have any drinks, it appears to be a great place to unwind and relax. Will definitely be frequenting the Green Bean each trip I'm in town!

    This was my first visit to the Green Bean since Covid. Understandably, they have simplified their menu to account for the reduced amount of in house customers, but the food and service were still good.

    I saw on the open table menu that Green Bean had turkey pot pie. When I arrived, the menu was somewhat different and there was no pot pie. It was disappointing. My alternative was a pretty expensive salad with chicken.

    A few friends went to the Green Bean to celebrate a belated birthday this week and had a tremendous experience. The food was fantastic, apparently there is a new chef. I had the Caesar Salad with Blackened Salmon, it was delicious. My girlfriend had the Caesar Salad with Grilled Shrimp which she also loved. The gentleman in the crowd had the Beef Dip with Fries & Gravy, there wasn't a drop left on his plate either. Our server was fast, efficient and courteous. It was a big noisy in the restaurant, likely due to the fact that seating was almost at capacity. We will be back.

    The Green Bean was an excellent choice for lunch with business associates. The service was amazing, the food was delicious and we enjoyed the high-top seating located by the bar. Try the Caesar Salad with your choice of protein, it was absolutely delicious. Love the dressing!

    Went for breakfast. Over priced for what you get. Plate was over loaded with 'hash brown's' to fill the space. Poor service from unfriendly staff. Won't be back. Left feeling hungry. Back to Sonoma on 9th Ave next time I want breakfast.

    It's almost always very loud but the reason I went there was for the cob salad which they no longer have on thier menu so I was disappointed as were my 3 friends as I had told them we had to go there for that salad. Waitress was fine but new so one persons gravy was missed initially. The other 3 people said that thier food was salty and my salad was just ok. If they bring back the cob salad I will go back as it is close to my office.
