    This restaurant was recommended to us, the food was certainly good. The ambience, not so, we were seated inside which made it impossible to hear our guests. Also would have preferred a table to ourselves not have other people seated beside us. I think when booking, something needs reflected that there is an outside area. The service was attentive and friendly. Food tasty, although preferred some selections better than others.

    I was really disappointed with my experience at the Green. I was waiting 20 minutes for someone to seat us and we had a reservation. The staff were not friendly and didn’t apologise once for the wait or didn’t even great us. We felt like an inconvenience to the team. The tall male waiter was very rude and I am disappointed with the experience at such a beautiful restaurant. The food was great and so was the atmosphere. But overall customer experience was poor.

    The Green was absolutely flawless! I have already recommended it to so many friends and I'm only disappointed that I hadn't tried their sharwarma spiced lamb sooner! The figs with basturma were also a highlight - the flavours in that dish were superb! Cocktails were delicious and I loved the tahini and chocolate cake too! Service was terrific and we really felt looked after the entire time, the atmosphere was energetic and happy - no hospitality chaos that can ruin a dining experience. Can't wait to come back - thank you everyone at The Green!

    My 2 friends and I visited The Green for lunch on a Saturday. We sat inside at one end of a long table with other diners. The decor is very appealing but as with most restaurants these days I found the background music unnecessary as there was already enough noise within the space from the chatter from all the other diners. The waitress was friendly and knowledgeable and we didn't have to wait long before our drinks orders were taken. We ordered the trio of share dips, falafels, trio of salads and a half charcoal chicken to share. It was quite hard to fit all the plates in the small space on the table. The food was super delicious and that was more than enough for the 3 of us. We managed to squeeze in dessert and my orange and almond cake was the best I had ever eaten. My friends chocolate and salted caramel cake was an enormous serve accompanied by a delicious vanilla bean icecream.

    Lovely place, quite busy when we went so noise was a bit higher and service was a bit slower, but we’ve been twice in the last week so will definitely go back! Haven’t been hugely impressed by the food but the ambience is lovely (& there’s so few cafes on James St!)
