Food was a little pricey but good. It was very loud and hard to hear across the table.

Food was excellent. Place was a little crowded and definitely not very spaced out (I could have touched the people sitting on either side of me). Staff was wearing masks.

It was delicious! Service was very good. Our server was very attentive. A little strange that we were seated in a row of tables when they could have spaced everyone out more not because of Covid but for ambiance. Certainly there was space-

We enjoyed our dinner very much, the only issue was the temperature, there was a cold waft of air blowing on us the whole evening, and it was very cold outside. The food was very good and the service quite attentive.

Service was not to the standard expected. Food quality not to expectations. One example, after asking for and waiting 20 minutes to get a dessert menu, and based on the lack of attentive service, we decided it wasn’t worth ordering dessert. We left and went to another location for dessert.

We really enjoyed dinner at Green Pig Bistro. We started with a bottle of wine, ordered the Gruyère puffs for an appetizer (YUM). My husband hand the cassoulet (fantastic!) and I had the pork chop - absolutely delish. The portions were excellent and the service was great. We tried both the cheesecake and sticky toffee pudding - both wonderful.

I really wanted to love this place (what’s not to love about pork, cheese, bread?!) but I left with less than feeling that I’d just had the best food ever in Clarendon. Server was amazing. Food was dry and cold by the time we got our food. Idk…may try again to see if it was just an off night.

Our server, and shame on me for failing to note her name, was superb. Friendly, knowledgeable, helpful. Seemed to love her job. A rarity these days. Got very noisy as evening went on so hard to hear ( we are ladies of a certain age). Food—beautifully cooked /grilled shrimp on a perfect Caesar salad, delish pan of corn bread with maple butter. Perfect Deviled eggs. One of us had scallops but only 3 scallops for a pricey entree. Love this place. Great neighborhood restaurant. Never disappoints.

The menu selection is excellent and varied, including vegetarian and gluten free options. Portions are huge. Consider sharing an entree and the excellent lobster dip appetizer. Service was excellent - helpful and friendly. Very noisy Friday evening in December but not too loud for good table conversation.

Dined here the evening of Wednesday, 12/8/21 for a special occasion dinner welcoming home a friend who had just returned from a long overseas work assignment. Green Pig's food only gets better with time -- especially under chef Tracy O'Grady -- and everything from the famous cornbread to the side salad to my pork belly gnocchi to the apple pie crisp dessert was thoroughly delicious. Service from our bubbly server, John P, was flawless and fun. We have every intention to return. Bravo!

The Green Pig Bistro is our favorite restaurant in the area. The food is always excellent, and the wait staff is superb. We accepted the waitress’s recommendations, and she was spot on! My wife had the scallops, and I had the pork chop. Both were truly amazing. Chef Tracy O’Grady does a great job of blending just the right flavors, with just the right portions. Of course, all of our interactions were with the wait staff, and they were all very consistently very professional and on point. We were surprised, however, that none of the staff wore face masks. That seems a little risky, especially with the pandemic still ongoing and new variants recently identified.

I really enjoyed my time at the Green Pig. I did feel the main dining room was too enclosed and wondered if there could be anything done to improve ventilation-- perhaps closing the kitchen with glass so the fumes do not overwhelm the dining area, and you still get the open kitchen concept which is nice.

I love visiting The Green Pig! The food has creative flair with amazing taste. When I want to introduce my people to great dine with family/friends, maybe a cocktail with excellent service and amazing food, I choose The Green Pig! Do yourself a favor and join them for Brunch- you won't be disappointed!

We enjoyed a delightful Thanksgiving lunch at Green Pig Bistro, including a beautiful and fantastic pumpkin bisque, traditional turkey dinners, a scallops entree, and very tasty as well as cute individual pumpkin pies. The whole menu was well thought out, and provided plenty of choices for anyone and everyone. Our waiter and servers were top notch. Our plates were beautiful, and portions were generous. We were comfortably seated outside, with a heater, while the inside diners looked and sounded very happy, too. The restaurant and surrounding neighborhood are charming. We will look forward to returning, and have already recommended it to others.

Green Pig Bistro is our favorite restaurant. But don't take our word for it: Washington Post critic Tom Sietsema loves it, too. This is our go-to place for special occasions and for casual get-togethers. For seafood, and for steaks. For friendly service, and for good times. Two thumbs up (both of them greasy from the “Buffalo” baby back pork ribs with blue cheese dressing). Enjoy!
