Bad service despite the food

My husband and I have been frequenting Green Table for over three years. I've recommended this restaurant to many friends and family, for wedding parties and for special dining experiences. No more. I've never had such horrible service from this institution. We were asked if we wanted drinks after sitting down. After we didn't order wine or a drink, we were ignored for half an hour. We place the order and the food arrived within forty-five minutes. I ordered sausage with lentils. Literally only one sausage on small cast iron plate arrived for eighteen dollars. 18 for one sausage and small pile of greens! I told the waiter that this was not enough food for me. Could I get something else with this? The waiter looked startled and went to ask the manager. The manager and him laughed at the request. Then the waiter came back, shoved the menu in my face and said 'If you want more, order more!' I finished my meal (the food was excellent) but left hungry and went somewhere else to fill up. I'm sorry- I know this is New York and expect some degree of rudeness but I don't think its unreasonable to expect some professionalism with service. I will NEVER come back. AND I can promise you neither will my friend.

I am so happy I found this place. First of all, it's tiny. It probably doesn't seat more than 15 people. It's cozy, and has a very welcoming atmosphere. The staff was amazingly attentive, and very friendly and accomodating. The menu was great. It had something for everyone. There were several vegetarian options, which is sometimes hard to find in small places with a small menu. And the food was delicious. The portions were perfect. I didn't feel overstuffed at the end. Generally, I like to try a new place everytime I go out. But this is a place I can't wait to go back to.

The Green Table was the perfect place to celebrate a dear friends birthday. This cozy find inside the chelsea market is well worth the trek! Inventive super fresh food. Beautifiul selection of Organic Wine, Organic Beer, and Organic Vodka. Can't wait to go back with a date.
