Horrible food 8/1/2009

Indigestion city and expensive! They need to revamp or close! Don't eat here even if someone else is paying! If you do, you'll be sorry later! Cons: Worst food ever more

Wonderful Caterers 3/12/2009

The agency that I work for had an event and we asked Green Pastures to cater the event. Not only was the food wonderful but the catering staff was very professional and very personable. I would recommend them to cater any events. more

Floating through a dream....... 4/29/2008

Green Pastures is the place to get married! Everything ran smooth and Tanya was wonderful in every way. She was great not just with me but with my parents as well. Who can be difficultl. My husband and I held our ceremony in the round under the oak trees at 11am on a Saturday in April. We had a brunch reception with Bloody Mary's and Mimosas with a champagne toast. The food was great, the drinks were delicious, the service was top notch and they even made sure the weather was ideal:) They were so great at handling everything else, I thought for sure they made the sun shine that day too! I was worried a brunch wedding would be too non conventional and maybe boring, but Tanya and Green Pastures made sure it was a stunning ceremony and reception. Our guests said it was the best wedding they have been to in a long time because it was romantic, intimate and classy. My big day went off without a hitch and the whole event had a wonderful flow thanks to the staff at Green Pastures. All day I felt like I was floating through a dream. The atmosphere at Green Pastures is truly dreamy. Not only did I feel it that day, but at other weddings I have attended there in the past. My favorite guests were the peacocks who really added to the magic. The house along with the peacocks lend themselves to some kind of Victorian psychedelic daydream. I suggest holding your ceremony in the Spring when the trees are full, everything is green and the peacocks fan their beautiful tails during their mating ritual. more

""I do"" to Green Pastures 5/8/2007

Kudos to Green Pastures staff for giving me, my groom and our family and friends the most enjoyable experience on our big day. Our coordinator, Erica, perfectly arranged the special events and flawlessly kept things moving, all with the most pleasant demeanor and thoughtfulness. Our waiter, Brian, was graciously attentive to us and our guests with his unparalelled service. Thank you Erica and Brian for making our walk down the aisle truly special. more

Romantic Wedding Venue 4/7/2007

Tanya Wood and her staff did a PHENOMENAL job of pampering us and our guests the day of our wedding. Tanya is efficient, friendly, and very knowledgeable. We did not have to worry about anything the day of the wedding because Tanya handled EVERYTHING. The staff were extremely courteous and the food was excellent. Hot entrees were actually hot and the wine glasses were never empty. I would recommend Green Pastures to any bride or groom if they want a stress free wedding. Our wedding was PERFECT from start to finish and we will never forget our beautiful day! Pros: Beautiful lawn with roaming peacocks. Cons: None. more

Family oriented and great customer service for a wedding reception 4/2/2007

Everything is getting back to normal. It is extremely hard as parents to have such a wonderful gift to be put in your lap and asked to raise, nurture and make it happen. I am so happy for Jennifer and Ryan and I think I have a new calling. Do you have a position available for me? I can only pray you have this wonderful experience a head of you. more

Excellent Wedding Venue 3/21/2007

Great Pastures did a spectacular job on our wedding. We had both our ceremony and the reception there, and they executed everything perfectly --- the food, the atmosphere, the service --- just overall awesome. Their wedding coordinator Tanya was fantastic to work with from start to finish. She's extemely friendly, knowledgeable, and flexible. As a couple with very little wedding-planning time, I loved the fact that we could leave many of the details to Tanya, and not only could she be trusted to do everything right, the results exceeded our expectations. Also, Charles, the chef, did a phenomenal job on our food, and he was more than willing to accommodate our every preference. Our guests commented non-stop about how beautiful the place was and how great the food was. I highly recommend this place! Pros: Service, value, food, atmosphere. more

In a word: Perfect 10/2/2006

First, the food is absolutely superb. Second, the service is impeccable. The staff is friendly and polite; they go the extra mile to ensure the best possible experience for you. Third, it's beautiful, quiet, and private: perfect for romance. If you are looking for noise, action, and hustle-bustle; you are better off somewhere else. The pace of Green Pastures is wonderfully relaxing for patrons. Pros: Great food. Impeccable service. Beautiful location. Cons: Peacocks can get noisy in the evenings. more

Avoid ... Austin has too many true fine dining establishments ! 7/6/2006

Prices are high for what you get and the menu is very limited. The place has a musty scent, with NO atmosphere. I heard that the place has been bought and sold - perhaps this is the reason for some of the problems they have. Probably a good venue for a luncheon when the average age of the guest is 75. Pros: grounds are taken care of, peacocks onsite Cons: no valet, high prices, limited menu more

Flawless wedding reception with exceptional service 6/30/2006

Last night I attended a family wedding reception at Green Pastures and was simply amazed by the grounds, the staff, and the food. Id heard before that this was the place to go for a special evening, but it exceeded my expectations in every way. The entire experience was perfect. The restaurant is beautiful, inside and out, but also very comfortable. We were welcomed from the moment we arrived. The food was delicious; I enjoyed the grilled tofu with spinach along with an array of incredible appetizers. The service was exquisite, to the smallest detail. Our very attentive servers Herb, Ryan, and Vanessa made sure that every guest was pampered the entire night. They were efficient, friendly, and gracious the staff at Green Pastures is the best of the best. Pros: service, food, atmosphere more


Beautiful location and very convienent to downtown - perfectly manicured grounds. Over all, there were a few issues but they were acknowledged and taken care of by the GM. Pros: The grounds are beautiful and manicured Cons: Bad area of town, inexperienced staff, food for banquet was less than mediocre more

wonderful but $$$$$$ not $ 4/11/2006

A wonderful dining experience especially for a special occassion, but this place is EXPENSIVE! Do not be fooled by the one $ sign. more

Best Valentine's Day of my Life! 2/19/2006

My new fiance' and I went to Green Pastures for Valentine's Day, and it was so romantic. The table was beautifully decorated with a single rose and candle, and the lights were dimmed for a romantic ambiance. The service was fast and friendly, and the food was wonderful! My fiance' proposed to me that night, and had set up a special request to have champagne brought to our table. I will never forget that night, and we will be comming back to Green Pastures every Valentine's Day from here on out. Pros: friendly staff, great wine selection, romantic Cons: reserv. hard to get more

Fair at best 2/14/2006

My husband and I take pleasure in fine dining and gourmet restaurants. After reading the reviews I decided to try Green Pastures. Unfortunately, if you are looking for a TRUE fine dining experience, try somewhere else. First, there was no valet. Next, the hostess was helpful, however, we were sat in a large, open banquet room...not at all romantic. We waited at least five minutes before anyone came to our table, and that was just to give us water. My husband and I sat there at least another five minutes before the waitress finally greeted us. She gave us the set menu to review and left (without even taking our drink orders.) After we finally ordered the food arrived and was very bland-compare it to a hotel restaurant, or Luby's. $200.00 later, we left the restaurant extremely disappointed. This restaurant lacked the fundamentals of fine dining: exceptional service and cuisine. Pros: friendly hostess Cons: poor service, bland food, very expensive more

One well kept secret. 9/29/2005

Short and sweet, Green Pastures is a very pleasant and tasteful dining experience. We went for our anniversary and were supprised to be the ONLY guests for the 3 hours we were there. An earlier reviewer commented about how boring their experience was, but I say it was PERFECT. The quite atmosphere (on a non-busy night) is perfect for conversation with someone whose company you enjoy. Plus, the service was terrific. I would have to say that if this is a great spot for that second or third date, or even better, that proposal! Plus, if you happen to be the only guests too earn some points with your date and tell her you rented the place! Wink-wink! Pros: Great food , terrific service, unique atmosphere Cons: it aint cheap! more

This is THE PLACE to go for a romantic dinner! 6/14/2005

I have eaten in restraunts around the world and this place is up there in the top 10 place to dine. Excellent service, excellent food and greeat wine. The atmosphere is exceptional as well. This is a good place to do a marriage proposal - A friend of mine did that here in fact. The rooms are small enough to be cozy and semi private. The building is a historic mansion and is just a thrill to see. Pros: Atmosphere, Quality, Service Cons: Hard To Find, None, None more
