Three of us had a late lunch at the Green Onion and enjoyed our visit. The waiter was very friendly and spent time chatting with us. The restaurant had a nice sitting area with sofas in addition to the dining tables. My Salade Niciose included...More

After hearing good things about the Green Onion me and my family of four were very underwhelmed. Great location, but meals were nothing special. I would not return on a Sunday warm winter day. Staff could not handle a steady lunch crowd. Took 45 minutes...More

It is rare to find fine dining in Ghent, but the Green Onion offers that. Their menus is small, but their food is consistently good. If you come in with a larger group, sometimes the wait staff isn't willing to reconfigure the tables, but I...More
