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

QUICK AND CONVENIENT - Edit

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

Good food, decent prices - Edit

It is great to have another vegan-friendly place of eats.
I had one of their burritos. It was very good, but could use some more creative spices.

Pros: Good food., Nice place., Decent prices

Cons: Nonvegetarian food served, ask to besure, Some food lacks "kick"

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

Healthy, light on salt and seasonings - Edit

This place uses high quality ingredients. They are light on salt and seasoning. I personally found it a little boring, but would be great for someone who needs a diet light on salt and spices. Lots to choose from. Tons of REAL vegan options. Very nice people!

Pros: Casual, Clean

Cons: Simple

Meh - Edit

Upon going here the first time, I was thrilled with the quantity of options and the wonderful Fajitas. Upon going the second time, I was greeted with painfully slow and rude service, sticky tables, and a meal that was so unmemorable that I literally have no Idea what I ordered. Field of Greens is fine if you are close by, but other Houston veggie restaurants [edit by staff] are way better. Also, they spell their sign "Field of Green's", with an apostrophe, which (unless the owner's name is Green) is just wrong.

Delish - Edit

I have been several times to Field of Greens and have yet to find a dish I didn't like. I am especially fond of their *ham* and often order a dish that lists it as an ingredient. The place is small but comfortable and has plenty to choose from on the menu.

Decent, but I've had better raw meals - Edit

Not to my surprise, everything was really pricey and the portions are not that impressive. Food was still good, but there's also too much soy in everything.

Pros: Variety

Cons: Price, Soy

Decent food and decent prices - Edit

The service was quite slow, but I was only there once and there were 5 of us. It didn't look like there were too many people working the kitchen, so it's not their fault. The menu is big and there are lots of vegan options. I had the macrobiotic platter, which was just ok. The little tofu quiche was amazing, but tiny. The vegetables had no flavor, but added salt/pepper. The kale was good. The carrot ginger soup was quite oily. The "fish" tacos my husband had were VERY good and the accidental free hummus they brought out to start was delicious, with the pesto on top! And their chocolate cake (vegan) was really good too. It's not the coziest of settings, but it's clean and bright. I might go back again if I were in the area.

Pros: good prices, pretty good food

Cons: slow service, plain ambience

3rd Review - NOT SAFE FOR VEGANS - Edit

I'm a strict vegan. That means I really don't eat cheese...or casein..or whey..or eggs..or egg whites..or anything that comes from an animal. I truly don't. I seriously don't. SO when I go to a restaurant that claims to be serving me vegan food..and it turns out they aren't - I get very upset..no make that furious! That's why I won't give a good review for Field of Greens. I have been served/fed cow cheese instead of soy cheese as well as fake meats with whey and egg whites in them. I've also gotten sick after eating there. I will never go back to this place again.

Pros: great for meat eaters

Cons: feed vegans dairy, feed vegans egg laden fake meats, salmon is a meat

great and o.k. - Edit

I have been here at least 10 times in the past years and i will be back. The menu is slightly overwhelming, but only because the options seem endless. Most of the things taste the same, which is monotonous, but it tastes good so thats not bad i suppose. They need more options for children, not all kids will eat what they offer. The wheat meat, soy and seiten are excellent and varied, the condiments they offer are surprising and quality. i can't stand the salads, but thats just me,it would not deter me from going.

Pros: variety, tasty, friendly staff

FOG'S DOES NOT SERVE MEAT - Edit

I read some recent reviews saying that Field of Green's serves meat, but that's not correct. They do serve salmon and tuna, which is not considered meat and the only reason the owner leaves those items on the menu is because it's so popular. Field of Green's is really one of the only healthy vegetarian restaurants in Houston. I do not think Field of Green's gets enough credit. The food is delicious and although the atmosphere may not be that creative, it's nice. A lot of people get upset because they do not serve sodas, but it's for the better. Too many people in Houston consume too much sugar and salt, so I think Field of Green's could help people become healthier.

Pros: excellent food, healthy cuisine, friend staff

NoisVeg 02 Oct 2010 - Salmon and tuna are fish, ALL fish is meat. Meat is any and all animal flesh (muscle and fat.), organs, livers, skin, brains, bone marrow, kidneys, lungs, etc that is used as food. Any animal that is killed and their body part is used for food is meat.

Delve 22 Feb 2013 - Salmon and Tuna are not vegetables, fruit, grains, and uumm nope they aren't even legumes - so I guess that makes them some sort of moving before dying meat. Oh and if you eat either one..you ain't no vegetarian. I guess you work for or own this restaurant. Field of Green's isn't a fair restaurant to vegans. They serve non-vegan items while claiming they are vegan. I've gotten sick one too many times here. It's a shame.

Not happy - Edit

I've eaten here countless times - and though I thought it was kind of expensive for what it is, I always went back. However, I recently talked to a kid who worked there - and he claimed that the item I usually ordered, the eden burger, has egg whites in it. They advertise it as something that can be made vegan, so I request it vegan. The idea that I've been eating eggs unknowingly infuriates me. It's just outright betrayal. In short, I believe the person I talked to and I won't be eating there again.

gr8d8 13 Mar 2011 - Thank you for posting this. This is making my blood boil. I am furious and will be letting my vegan friends and the vegan meet-up group know about this. My family will not be returning to FOGs. Thanks again for posting.

rvasquez 22 Feb 2013 - I order the same thing, and they always make a point of telling me they'll put the vegan chicken on it instead. I do think it was originally vegan, as I remember them posting a note saying that the manufacturer of that particular "chicken" had just changed their formula making it no longer vegan.  


By submitting this post you agree to HappyCow Terms

Delve 22 Feb 2013 - rvasquez, I had a friend who worked in the kitchen at FOG for a long while. She told me that the "chicken" had actually always had the non-vegan ingredients in it, and that she told the owner they shouldn't be serving it to vegans. To save face they came up with 'the ingredients have changed and are no longer vegan'....now who'd in their straight mind want to go and piss off some vegans?
