Feel Right at Home

In Our Neighborhood Restaurant

We’ve seen a lot of changes in the food and beverage scene since The Green Well opened its doors in 2007. We love seeing the city grow and evolve, and are proud to be one of the OG go-to’s in the East Hills neighborhood.

As an Essence Restaurant establishment, we’re driven to push boundaries and offer a fresh take on dining. And that’s exactly what we do. When you’re here, you can enjoy great food and drinks while feeling right at home.

We open the stage for you to peek behind the curtain to see all that goes into creating an enriched, welcoming experience—from connecting you with our family farmers and providers from whom we source our ingredients to creating a sense of comfort any time you step through our doors.

So, drop in to our spirited neighborhood restaurant and experience all that dining out should be—high-quality dining without the high price tag.

Does The Green Well Take Reservations For Large Parties?

We’re a first-come, first-served neighborhood restaurant. While we don’t take reservations, we’d be happy to accommodate you! For parties of 5–12 guests, please give us a call. We do not accept reservations for the patio.
