Respond to Review of Greens
Review: I visited Greens last night with some omni friends. This is the second time I have been and as I was not impressed the first time I was hoping Greens had improved some. However, I was disappointed for the second time. First let me address the service: It is appalling! We were seated fairly quickly but soon forgotten and made to wait twenty minutes before our order was taken. We had the taster plate as a starter, for £10 you get a dollop of hummus, a small bowl of olives, vegetarian black pudding (not vegan) and some oil and bread. It only came with three very small pieces of bread so we asked our waiter for more and were shocked at the end of the night to find that we were charged £2 for the extra bread!! Our bill came to £160 in total and they were still petty enough to charge for extra bread! Moving on to the main: again service was dismal, making us wait 30 minutes between finishing our starter and our main arriving. I had the risotto, as the only vegan main on the menu I did not have any other option. It was substandard, something that I could easily make at home and a very small portion for £12. As for dessert, it was absolutely disgusting! I had the apple crumble (again the only vegan option) which was not a crumble at all but actually American style apple sauce topped with granola...horrible! My advice to anyone looking for a nice, slightly posh vegetarian/vegan meal in Manchester is to visit Bistro 1847. Stay well clear of Greens as you will get horrible service, a busy and loud environment and mediocre but expensive food.
