I eat at Green Onion a half-dozen times a year and, in a town with many dozens of fine restaurants from which to choose, that's pretty often. It's located near my favorite theater, so dinner and a show without having to move my car is...More

The staff was wonderful, attentive, and answered every question since this was our first visit. Our 1st disappointment came with the cheese course. Excellent cheeses served with crackers & not a fresh baguette? Not very French. The mussels were plenty but we couldn't decide what...More

Lunch Review. We were a little skeptical when we first walked in and there was no one in the restaurant during the middle of a weekday lunch hour. My guess is our waiter was the owner. He was very friendly and attentive. Everything is cooked...More

Great atmosphere, waiter was very friendly and the food was wonderful. There is seating both inside and outside. Portions are very large. My husband and I shared both the mussels and lobster rolls and our bill only came to $43.88. I recommend you should give...More

Mr and I dined al fresco at the Green Onion this past Saturday. It was our first meal at this restaurant. We had a nice, linen covered table with great people watching on Colley Ave. We started with a bowl of She Crab Soup, which...More

A nice patio outside on Colley has a number of tables for nice weather. And the restaurant is dog friendly. The food was very good, the service friendly, and ambiance was fine. I was surprised that it was not more crowded for dinner when we...More
