It is good. I wouldn't call it healthy - they have a good bit of fried stuff and you can tell that a lot of oil is used. Good lesson that green does not = healthy. But, it is very good and its nice that San Antonio has this kind of restaurant.

I've been there. Closed on Saturdays-FYI.
They have an awesome atmosphere. I'm not a vegetarian, but I love their food.

Glad to have a good vegetarian place in San Antonio. However I would second that a lot of the food that is fried comes out a bit oily. Also, I would like to see a broadened menu (or at least changing during the season). On a side note, how I miss the famous Mother's lasagna in Austin (yes it is cheesy and oily, too).

Eating at Green, or most places for that matter, can be plenty "healthy" if you know what and how to order.

Just because Green has fried options on the menu does not make it an unhealthy restaurant.

Beautiful place, but the food really isn't very good. As others have echoed, it's unneccesarily "heavy". And, most surprisingly, they don't really feature many fresh vegetables.

The coffee is pretty good, though.

Actually, I wouldn't say its unhealthy. The owner started eating vegetarian food as a way to lose weight via weight watchers. You can lose weight AND still eat fried foods. Just don't eat that way every day. Look at the background of the owner and restaurant and you'll see a very inspiring story...especially if you are looking at the health benefits! I think a lot of things on the menu are good, some take an aquired taste.

Like all restaurants, green has some things that are healthy and some things that aren't. While I do find things on their menu I like, I don't care for tofu and fake meat, so maybe I just don't have as many healthy options. I usually end up eating the green burger or a salad.

The portobello burger is my favorite! And when I'm on a calorie splurge, sweet potato fries are the best!

I'm not a huge fan. Basically, I don't need to pretend I'm eating meat, which is what most of the dishes are - vegetarian versions of typical meat dishes (eg meatloaf, chicken friend steak, etc). I don't think it's bad, just not my cup of tea. My friend, OTOH, who is a dedicated meat-and-potatoes guy married to a vegetarian loves it for precisely the same reason I don't.

That said, it's a cool place with great owners so nice for an occasional stop.
