First Review by plazamj

A nice find! - Edit

Was happy to come across Green Vegetarian Cuisine in San Antonio, a city with few vegan options. Located in the Pearl area, Green Vegetarian offers a menu with significant variety. I opted for the fried chikin with kale salad and sweet potato fries. Definitely not a "healthy" option, but a tasty one nonetheless! Also enjoyed a cupcake for dessert.
Overall, I very much enjoyed dining here. The wait staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was tasty. Would certainly recommend!

Pros: In a nice area, Good variety of options

Phenomenal food and service! - Edit

Stopped here with my family on our way down to Laredo and we were so full, happy, and in love by the time we left! The service was great, our waiter took the time to tell us what was vegan versus vegetarian, when we told them we didn’t think our kiddo could finish a meal but would like some sliced tomatoes for her (even if they charged us for it) he said no problem. They brought out a massive plate for her and told us it was on the house! She loved it! As for my husband and I, we inhaled the BBQ cauliflower appetizer and then he ordered the fish and chips while I had their quinoa burrito. Both were amazing! Then the strawberry cheesecake cupcake.....it blew my mind!!!

Pros: family friendly , fast and wonderful service , amazing desserts

Crazy Busy - Crazy Good - Edit

This place was hopping on a sunny Sunday afternoon in in the Pearl of San Antonio. We had the vegan avocado toast with hollandaise, the tofu huevos mexicali and sweet potato pancakes and they were all delicious. A full case of delicious looking vegan dessert treats but we were too full from our fantastic meal. Oh well, we’ll just have to go back!

Pros: Quick service despite being crazy busy , Huge all vegan dessert selection, fun area to explore after eating

Cup cakes - Edit

We stopped in here to get some cupcakes for a family member while we were in town. I asked what kind of sweetener they use in their cupcakes. I found out it was refined sugar, that is not vegan. I’m guessing the rest of their restaurants use the same sugar at all locations. I was very sad to discover this, I was looking forward to a cupcake.

Pros: the staff was helpful answering my questions. , Very clean restaurant

Cons: They do not use Vegan sugar.

Super food, super company! - Edit

My family loves Green and all of their other restaurants! Great comfort food and the best part is that we can take omni's to eat with us and everyone enjoys the food. And we can order splurge foods or super healthy foods - whatever we feel like on that day. Large portions often send us home with leftovers but we always save room for dessert. The desserts are delicious! Love the cooking classes offered too.

Pros: Good variety of foods to choose from, Delicious desserts, Happy, friendly owners and staff

Cons: Not open Saturdays (but I respect their beliefs)

my favorite restaurant in SA! - Edit

I cannot say enough good things about this place! This particular location being at The Pearl is extra nice. They do a huge breakfast menu on Sundays. They have a dog patio. Their coffee is delicious and they offer soy milk for vegans. I just try to come here as often as possible. It's my fave.

Pros: you can veganize any entree

Cons: they're closed Saturdays (I had to think really ha

The best! - Edit

I have been coming to this location of Green since I converted to vegetarian in 2015. It is simply amazing! I often order their falafel burrito on days that aren't Friday, but on Friday it is all about the green enchiladas with sweet cinnamon tea. You can get your cheese regular or Vegan, which is great since I am transitioning to Vegan. The cooks will walk around and talk to you, and all of their desserts are made fresh daily. It is a family owned restaurant, and I support that and local businesses.

They have a Mediterranean bowl which is a lot like the falafel burrito, but de constructed. I love it! big, thick slices of carrot and cucumber that you can dip in the pecan hummus or thick and creamy, vegan tzaziki.

They have another location, on the northwest side, but it is subpar to the Pearl location (greyson). I'm not sure why. Maybe the cooks? But if you are in San Antonio, this is the place to go. Bring an empty belly and fill up on some amazing, home made vege/vegan food! They even have gluten free options, too.

Pros: Vegan/Vege/gluten free options, well rounded menu, reasonable prices

Cons: Sometimes there is a wait, it is a bit loud, so don't expect a quite dinner

Best vegan food I have ever eaten! I have been eating plant based for 8 years now and have been to many different eateries thanks to happy cow! This is the best place. I wish they would put out a cook book with all of there recipes. I would buy it for sure! Don't forget to go next store to licks and get some vegan ice cream!

Pros: lots to choose from! good price! big portions!

Cons: none.

A nice place - Edit

I've visited this place twice now when staying with my family. There are loads of vegan friendly options and the food is pretty good. The most recent thing I had was an orange tofu bowl and it was an enormous portion. It was pretty good, but maybe a bit too zesty for my taste. My husband had a burger which he thought was pretty awesome. The service isn't amazing, nobody ever seems happy, but I guess they're busy all the time. Oh well, I'd still come back - especially for one of their cakes.

Pros: Lots of choice, yummy cakes

Cons: Grumpy staff

great food - Edit

I went twice in two days. Great food and friendly staff. I had the quinoa burrito and the chickpea burger both of which were excellent. Get the sweet potato fries. I loved all the baked goods I had. Staff was friendly and had fun shirts. The smoothies are a bit watered down and I cannot recommend. Everything can be made vegan.

Pros: lots of vegan

Cons: smoothies are watered down

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! - Edit

Since going vegan two years ago, I discovered this little treasure in the Pearl Brewery area of SA. Green Vegetarian has the most yummy food for vegans and vegetarians alike. I love that they can make anything on the menu vegan. My favorite is their vegan chickpea veggie burger with vegan chipotle mayo and guacamole with a side of mashed potatoes and vegan gravy. While I prefer to be oil free as well, Green Vegetarian is a yummy treat when I'm craving some of their delicious sweet potato fries or even something sweet, like one of their delicious vegan cupcakes! YUM!

Pros: Terrific food!, Good Ambiance, Great dog-friendly patio area

Spring Visit to San Antonio - Edit

Pros: Great outdoor seating, Kosher, Menu variety

Cons: Service took a litte longer than necessary, ..., ...

great restaurant - Edit

This place is my default when trying to think of somewhere to eat. Tons of options, you can go super-healthy or fried-delicious-indulgent and not worry about whether things are veg. Many meat-friends have commented that they're surprised how much they enjoy the menu here.

Delicious food, fun decor and great staff - Edit

Our first time here and we were thoroughly impressed. It'll be a frequent stop whenever we're in San Antonio! Everything on the menu can be made vegan and as soon as we mentioned the word vegan the server was careful to clarify on everything we ordered that we wanted the vegan version.

Pros: Knowledgeable staff, Fun sassy decor, Cauliflower Hot Wings!

Cons: Only distance for me - I live in Austin, TX!

Great Vegan Options - Edit

Tonight was the third time that I've eaten here and plan to eat there again later this week. I visit San Antonio for one week a year and this is a favorite. Tonight I had the Fish and Chips and it was great. I really enjoyed the slaw as it had a lite sauce that was slightly sweet.

Pros: Most items are already vegan, Vegetarian items can be made vegan
