Soy Ice Cream!!! - Edit

This place is one of my favorite vegan restaurants in the Houston area. It is mostly vegan, but don't worry because you can easily tell what is vegan and what is not. I come here sometimes with my boyfriend, who is a meat eater, and he still loves to eat the vegan dishes over the non-vegan dishes. There is a huge variety of options on the menu, too. All of the sandwiches and burgers they offer are super tasty. The California club is my favorite. The fries they have are by far the best fries I have ever had. I just love their seasoning so much. However, I need to talk about their soy ice cream. Their ice cream is easily my most favorite vegan ice cream that I can find in the Houston area. To me their ice cream tastes EXACTLY like Blue Bell's Homemade Vanilla. I even took some for my parents to eat one day and they could not stop raving about it. I have to get it every time I come. The staff is super friendly. I love seeing their smiling faces every time I come in. Come eat here. You will not regret it!

Pros: Delicious food, Friendly staff, Soy ice cream

Cons: Limited parking

Simple, Healthy Food - Edit

Field of Greens is mostly vegan and serves up "old school", simple vegetarian fair. The food is non-fussy, heavy on steamed vegetables, rice, beans, tofu, etc. I enjoy the Macrobiotic platter, which includes rice, beans, streamed veggies, kale with tahini sauce, seaweed, daikon, and a couple of small tofu patties that they call tofu quiche. It also comes with a cup of soup. It's all very filling and healthy. There are also raw dishes, a few other veggie platters/entrees, sandwiches, and tofu burgers. The juices are good. They offer dessert, but I have not tried it.
There are just a few non-vegan fish meals, which seems a bit odd to me as the rest of the large menu is vegan. I have been here a couple of times and will probably return the next time I'm in Houston.

Pros: Healthy options, Big menu

Good Vegan Spot - Edit

Everything I ordered was very tasty. It's extremely flavorful and most items are truly vegan so no substitutions needed. There are several non vegan items so you can take your non vegan friends to this spot. Parking is a little limited when the restaurant is busy, which on the weekends, it typically is. They have a variety of vegan desserts (amazing cupcakes) so they get bonus points for that. The buffalo cauliflower "wings" were a must have! Those were soooooo good!! The Mediterranean bowl I ordered was great too (specifically the "walnut" pesto or hummus like stuff that was in the center. I absolutely loved it!). My only complaint about this place is that when they are busy the service can be less than stellar. My waitress took 15 minutes to even bring us waiter and then came back only once to check on the table. We waited another 15 minutes for our check. They just seem young and kind of loopy. The food is the redeeming quality though and since food vegan food is hard to come by in Houston, I have to still give this spot 4 stars. Just go there expecting the service to be average at best.

Pros: Variety of Vegan Options, Vegan Desserts Offered too!, Very Tasty

Cons: service can be slow and Mehh

Field of Greens, a vegan favorite - Edit

Most of the menu is labelled vegan, with a few vegetarian items (cheese) and a fish dish. The food is wonderfully tasty...the seasoning on the fries is amazing, and the creamy garlic dressing on the salad is so delicious :) :) I enjoy getting the bite sized vegan cupcakes for dessert when they have them!

Pros: Excellent food, Nice portions, Mostly vegan

Cons: Expensive

Mainly vegan - Edit

Very laid back, casual restaurant with very good, tasty mostly vegan menu. Had not been there in a while, since there are some 100% vegan restaurants nearby, and I choose to support those. Recent lunch trip to FOG. Had a tasty, filling falafel sandwich on pita with tahini and sprouts, with a side of tomato basil soup, for less than $12.00 so very affordable.
Non veg offerings are a couple of fish dishes, and honey in the BarBQ sauce. Seating indoor and out.
Next door to charming Path of Tea shop, where one can also dine.

Pros: Mostly vegan, Affordable, Convenient location

Cons: Not 100% vegan, Serves fish

Very Good and a ton of Vegan Options - Edit

Lets face it our Vegan options are pretty slim here in Houston so i was very happy and surprised to find this place. It has a good ambiance and the staff is very friendly on top of having a very large vegan menu so no shortage of options. I had the enchiladas which were pretty good.

Great Food - Edit

I moved about 90 miles away from Houston into the Big Thicket a few years ago where its genuinely hard to find a restaurant with vegetarian options much less vegan menu choices. Whenever my wife and I happen to be in Houston we look for a restaurant that offers a vegan menu. My wife found Field of Greens searching the web. This casual restaurant has a pretty varied menu with appetizers, salads, sandwiches, entrees, and deserts. All menu items are clearly marked as either vegan, vegetarian, or containing meat. The menu is definitely weighted toward vegan with only a couple of opens with animal products in them.

I had vegan wheat roast fajitas and my wife had vegan tamales. Both were incredible. We also shared a plate of fries with tofu picante sauce. It was super Yummy. The portion sizes were just rite as well and although its not fast food chain prices its very reasonable for freshly made fare.

The place has a smallish but adequate indoor seating area with a few tables outside in front of the restaurant on their sidewalk area. Patrons order at the counter but the food is brought out to your table by the staff. We will definitely be back to Field of Greens when in Houston.

Pros: Great Menu with lots of choices, Friendly Staff

healthy lunch or dinner - Edit

I like this place. When we lived in Houston, this was a go-to place for a casual sit down dinner. Field of Greens has some creative dishes - I especially liked quinoa subbed for noodles with pesto and vegetables! The best part about Field of Greens is that it is not greasy, in comparison with nearly all other vegan food in Houston. Thank you for the healthy options!

Pros: healthy, creative, tasty

Nice Lunch - Edit

I had lunch here recently, a veggie pita with French fries. It was tasty enough but small for the price. Also tried the carrot cake for dessert, which was absolutely delicious! Easy to find and easy to park. Friendly service. I'm not sure why I was expecting it to be a full service restaurant, but you order at the counter. Nice to have so many vegan options on one menu.

Delicious Meal - Edit

We had lunch at Field of Greens on August 29th 2013 while passing through Houston. It was highly recommended by an 'almost vegan' friend.

Food was delicious, selection/choices nice. The restaurant is large with lots of seating. WiFi accommodations.

Service was friendly and quick.

Pros: Delicious Food, Friendly Fast Service, Good Selection

Cons: None!

Almost all vegan w/ healthy delicious food - Edit

The fact that they are listed as veg-friendly is deceptive, because their new menu is probably 90% vegan. Their menu is listed vegan sandwiches, vegan entrees, vegan salads, and then a small non-vegan section (which has one salmon dish, I think). The food is really good. Obsessed with their tofu fries, their California club sandwich and seaweed club are delicious! Not super unhealthy either! I go a lot! Better than many all-vegan places.

Pros: Great food, TOFU FRIES, Almost all vegan

Cons: Not all vegan

FoG! - Edit

I have not been here in a little while, but used to go here all the time! It has great food and much variety. Not one hundred percent vegan though. It is not as good as it used to be though when I first started eating there. The menus has changed somewhat too, and the prices have raised. The setting of the restaurant is laid back and simple.

The stand out meals are: Zucchini & Squash Quesedillas, Wild Field Pockets, Vegan Seaweed Club, Tofu Fries, Vegan Fajitas, Vegan Grilled Vegetable BBQ, Vegan BBQ Sandwich, Vegan Green Bean Hummus Wrap, Vegan Eggplant Parmesan, Vegan Village Burger, Vegan Tempeh BLT Sandwich, Tabouli Avocado Sandwich, Vegan Felafel Burger, Grilled Eggplant Sandwhich, Tofu Quiche Salad, Vegan Burrito and Salad, Portobella Burger, Eden Burger, Chocolate Tofu Pie, Apple Maple Crumble Ice Cream.

I miss their Vegan Nachos, Vegan Fish Taco Platter, and breakfast foods.

Still a very good place to eat out.

Pros: excellent vegan food, great selection, simple

Cons: pricey, offers fish, removed some good foods

My kind of place! - Edit

I was visiting Houston from northwest Indiana and am very glad I decided to try field of greens..great menu selections with clearly marked vegan options. Had the bbq seitan sandwich w/ side salad and a strawberry blueberry smoothie for dessert..all very good. Next time I visit I'll be back to try more.

Pros: Great vegan choices, Health focused, Outdoor seating

Great Variety of Veg Dishes - Edit

I have been dining at Field of Green's since they opened. Originally they were a totally vegetarian restaurant with Chef Randy at the helm, who used to be with A Moveable Feast. Currently I believe they are about 80-90% vegetarian with many vegan dishes.

Through the years I have not once been disappointed with my dishes. I have tried most of their dishes and they have a very large variety of veg meats to choose from. I especially like their vegan pork and vegan fish. Their macrobiotic plate is a favorite, which I order regularly. Also, the vegan barbecue is very delicious. Lastly, I love their smoothies.

The vibe has changed from when they first opened. It used to be that they had this wonderfully eccentric waitress who gave the greatest vibe as well as jazz music predominantly being played in the background. It was relaxing and made we want to stay and visit.

Things have changed some but all in all you will not be disappointed. A great spot for fresh vegetarian food.

Pros: Variety, Fresh, Great veg meat selection

As a veteran diner at Field of Greens, I must say that it's a clean, quiet, and peaceful place to dine in the inner loop area.

I suggest the Gluten free "Vegan Green Pasta", not necessarily because it's gluten free, but because of it's insanely delicious vegan pesto sauce!

If you don't mind soy, the Eden Burger is a delicious option which has a delicious soy protein patty encrusted with a buttery basil crust.(though you have to ask for extra sauces if you want them, they tend to be a little stingy on that).

I hope that this establishment become more conscious of hidden animal products in the hand soap they use in the restroom.

The owner is not the most personable host in the world, but she grows on you eventually.

Overall, I suggest Field of Greens as a clean, convenient veggie friendly dining spot in the inner loop of Houston next to a wonderful organic tea conoisseur cafe called Path of Tea.

Updated from previous review on Tuesday August 23, 2011

Pros: Convenient location, Path of Tea next door, Clean

Cons: Needs hidden animal product awareness

My Favorite Restaurant - Edit

This is my favorite Houston restaurant. I eat there frequently and think the food is awesome! I have yet to try a bad meal. Sometimes they experiment with dishes that may require a little tweaking, but it doesn't take long before perfection is reached. The Raw Plate and the Green Bean Wrap are my two favorites.

Pros: delicious food, healthy food, relaxed atmosphere

Cons: location, size, understaffed
