Great food always
I went for lunch with friends. Some of the food we ordered was good, some of it was very good, but all of it took an eternity to arrive. I don't recommend this place if you're hungry (even our appetizer took over a half hour to arrive) or unless you have a good two hours for a lunch break. Oh, and it was freezing inside and the chairs are hard, cold and metal, so bundle up.
Artsy and good lunch spot for a quick bite
Great breakfast place!! But seems too busy with long wait times, at least on Saturdays!! They moved to a new location and I like it even more now
Amazing food! Excellent environment! Happy staff! Genius menu!
Eclectic stmosphere coupled with delicous and imagibative dinners and sandwiches. Definitely recommend it as a must...
Unique dining experience. Cute, quirky decor, interesting menu too. Friendly staff. Try out out, you won't be disappointed!
I live around the corner from this place and I come here at least once a week. It's kind of embarrassing that the staff know me! The food is consistently amazing as are their drinks. Their weekly specials are always interesting, unique, and tasty. I seriously cannot get enough of this place. The wait can get a little long during peak dining times (sometimes as long as 45-60 minutes), so keep that in kind.
great staff. different menu than corporate. fun . crisp. fresh.
Funky Eclectic. This is a cool go-to lunch spot in Glastonbury. The chef has some very funky selections. The Chicken Saltimbocca sandwich was to die for. The cold sides of coleslaw and Asian noddles are very good. The quirky wall art is cool. The service is right there and the prices are spot on. Parking is tight.
The food is so good it gets super busy. Absolutely worth the wait but don't go when you're in a hurry. Grilled cheese croutons!?! Omg! You won't be disappointed.
This place is great! One of the only BYOB places I have found in CT. Their breakfast is great and they even have some dishes that include free coffee and a mimosa. And their food is very affordable. Definitely one of my favorite breakfast spots in the Hartford area.
A bit pricey for what you are getting I portion
Only a great experience if you are white and the complete honesty lol they kind forget about you and don’t really bother listening if you are anything but that lol really upset cause it was birthday and I really wanted to enjoy it
Food was great however when we arrived we asked for a large table to accommodate our large group and they never put two tables together we waited too long and had to seat ourselves at two tables
Convinced there is nothing bad on this menu. Always awesome and large portions. 100% worth it.
Delicious. Fun chase of pace.
Had a wonderful lunch. Veggie burger and falafel both delicious. Had peanut butter/ chocolate dessert. Server was helpful and friendly... looking forward to our next visit.
I loved the old spicy green bean, but my two experiences at the new location were not the best. A ton of their dishes seem to be fried and a bit greasy (including the eggplant sandwich). I ordered eggs Benedict the last time I was in and my eggs came out completely over hard and over done. Hopefully things improve there! Unsure if I would go back.
Love the new location place is gorgeous service was a little slow but the food was also very good with original plates
Everything here is AMAZING. The staff the food and the decor. It blows every other place in town out of the water by a mile! Casual relaxing and funky. It's a hidden gem in Glastonbury.
I read the reviews about their veggie burger and decided to try it. Great decision!! The burger and sweet potato fries were delicious. ☺
Great local restaurant. I have been eating there at their old location before they moved. Service was okay but they make their food from scratch. Every time I stopped there I really loved their veggie burger and their falafel wrap. They showcase many artwork from many local artists in town, really cool that they support them. Since their new location opened, it gets overcrowded unless you go earlier or later during lunch and dinner. Would stop by anytime alone at the bar or with the family to dine. Again, love the food.
Great breakfast place there are no bad choices here
Tried the 'new' Spicy Green Bean tonight. I have been a fan of the old location for over 13 years and loved the sister restaurant, Goats n' Roses. While I am sad that Goats n Roses will not return to Marlborough this summer, I was very happy to see a lot of that menu incorporated into this new location. My dinner was AMAZING! Service was spectacular, right down to the bus boy Logan who had wonderful insight to the menu and steered me in the right direction for dinner.
Very good breakfast/brunch menu. You WILL be full.
I love this place and the new location is so much bigger and easier to get in and out of. There are a lot of menu choices and their sandwiches, soups and salads are delicioyand not the same old thing. Really interesting decor and friendly staff.
Great, interesting, dishes. Reasonably priced. Service is on the slow side though. Outdoor seating is a nice addition.
Everything is delicious and plent too! I little noisy for me, but it's a neat trending place Nice staff, also!
Bohemian, eclectic yet delicious for the organic farfegnugen crowd, but appeals to mainstream should they keep an open mind and step inside.
Excellent food and the bartender was super friendly
Very busy on a Sunday morning. We had a 45 minute wait but that's a good sign. The menu was creative, the food was good, the table was sticky.
Really fantastic soup. We've eaten there several times and if always been very happy
Great breakfast and drinks. Awesome atmosphere!
The Spicy Green Bean is AMAZING!! Great food and even better service. I had the breakfast this morning with my vegetarian girlfriend and everything was made to our liking. We had the eggs & potato breakfast special and we subbed veggies and vegan sausage instead of the pork hash. It was outstanding, I recommend the green bean to everyone!!
This restaurant is amazing. Loved it when it was down the street, love it even more now. A huge amount of small plates (between $6-12) , so it's a great place to go with friends and try a variety of food. If you go, don't leave without getting the PB+J wings and tomato soup, both are life changing. *Update* Went there for brunch today, and the experience was miserable. My food took an hour to get and they forgot my friends. Hash was super dry and flavorless. Been before and was ok. Waitress didnt admit she forgot the food, and comp or apologize for anything. Really disappointed.
Awesome place to eat.
Worth the wait! Delicious food every time. Cozy eating experience. Service is very friendly and personable. The great for vegetarian vegan and other diet need. This is great place and surely be back here again.
Delicious food, fun and cozy environment. The food does take a bit to come out but is worth the wait.
Thickest meatiest steak I've ever had in my life. $28 is more expensive than what I'm used to for a single dish, but it was so worth. The wings themselves were alright, like mediocre pizza restaurant quality, but the honey sriracha sauce makes them wings pretty good.
I can't think of enough good things to say about this restaurant. I love the drink menu it's so unique and all the drinks are very refreshing. no matter what you pick you can't go wrong. I love it here
Love this place great food and friendly staff you will never leave with an empty stomach & its BYOB.
Delicious food. Creative too. Quaint atmosphere & easy to get to.
Awesome delicious food!!!!! Such great customer service! The servers are sweet and kind!!!!!!!!!!
I had always seen The Spicy Green Bean driving by over the years but never stopped in to check it out until yesterday. I'm glad I did! Every meal my group got was delicious, I'll definitely be going back at some point.
Loved the food. Great wait staff. Parking isn't easy. Very cute decor.
Cozy dining area but worth the wait for a table.
Cozy, cute. Very friendly staff.
Our waitress Jen was awesome!!!
Unique place. I like the atmosphere and food is great.
Good food. Great service. Accommodates dietary restrictions for gluten and keto
Yummy choices, friendly staff, but it gets busy fast, so get there early! Byob if you desire.
Love their new location! Food is always good! Love the breakfast on the weekends
Great place for breakfast! Worth the wait, parking in the rear as well
Great food, drinks, and atmosphere. Our waiter was fun
Nice choices good specials
Very nice lunch salad.
Mac Daddy Burger was quite excellent
Our first time in the new location. It has cute decor, lots of room. We shared the Alice in Shroomland, The Lob Couple, and the Schrute Farms, but we had to pack the latter to go we were so full from the first 2! Every item is fresh and sooo delicious and our server, Zack, was a lot of fun (he's also a "The Office" fan)! We were disappointed that our favorite item, Duck Rings, is no longer on the menu, but the Dirty Waffle Poutine was a good (but not perfect) sub. We'll keep asking for the Duck Rings until they bring them back! This is probably our favorite in town restaurant and we def will return!
ordered a Benedict and a omelet on what I thought was a quick brunch trip. They lost our ticket and took over 40 min to realize that we didn't have our food after ordering.
Amazing farm to table restaurant. Top notch food and service in a small but comfortable setting.
Delicious food - great service! Will definitely go again!
The eclectic vibe and food won me over my first visit. Recently went back for breakfast again and was not disappointed. Check out the special board - we had a delicious pumpkin special. Let full and happy ! Next up is dinner
Shephards pie egg rolls and their fries are absolutely amazing. My family's addicted to their burgers.
Excellent food and service!
Great menu with lots of fantastic options. Duck rings were awesome
My family and I went for breakfast. We were super excited to try this restaurant. However, it was super disappointing. We got a table and drinks right away. The wait for our waitress to take our order was about 30 minutes. Our waitress forgot about us and another waitress had to take our order. The wait for the food was about 35 minutes. The pancakes were rubbery and the food was bland. The hashbrowns were frozen store bought. The maple syrup was Aunt Jemimas. Nothing special about the food. I expected food full of flavor but bland is what we got.
Very nice luncheon menu.
Great menu choices. Good coffee and beautiful decor. Loved the California nut eggs Benedict.
We had to try out the peanut butter and jelly wings to start. They were very good!
I was expecting so much more here. Had recently heard about this place again and when an change came along having lunch there I couldn't wait to see what I was going to get. After looking at the menu & struggling over three choices I had decided on the crab cake sandwich. I haven't had crab in a while and it sounded great. Now sounding great and being great can be worlds apart, which I felt was the case here. Not an all bad sandwich, but there was nothing that made me say wow! I had a feeling I was going to be underwhelmed when I saw the sandwich. That aside I will go back here someday. They do have a large menu and maybe crab just isn't their thing. Whatever my other possibilities were that day I'll have to investigate those....
Food is fantastic, Service is great,. Comfortable atmosphere, one of best places in town.
I loved this place before I even walked in.. It is so colourful that made me feel very welcome and free. I spoke to Jenna and she is so friendly and the food was Oh soooo wow!! Thank you❤❤
Love brekfast and lunch here. The best sandwiches around. Love the Dr.Love pulled chicken, and the Cuban is awesome. Don't miss the popcorn soup! Onion rings are an indulgence here as well. All the sides are fantastic, especially the tuna-mac, Asian noodle, and slaw!
Spicy green bean is one of those restaurants that has it all. From the owner to the atmosphere to the food. They turn the word smile into a rating, cause afterwards thats what your left with !!!
The food was great but price is on the high side
Food and drinks were excellent, staff were friendly and inviting even if a little inexperienced. Overall a truly excellent dining experience.
Just an awesome place with great food!
Great food, great atmosphere, & wonderful staff couldn’t have asked for a better night! A definite go-to especially if your in the mood for something new and exciting! &&& It’s all from scratch what could be better?!
I have driven past this restaurant each time I was in Hartford. I am glad I finally went in. Popcorn Curry soup... I know right? It was phenomenal. Also their Veggie Burger sandwich is really tasty and completely different than a "hockey puck". Try it, you'll be glad you did.
The food is good, the atmosphere is ok, the service is fine and dandy. Just be aware a coffee costs $4.
I always look forward to going back. The food is amazing
I am from NY and every time I visit my buddy in Glastonbury , this place is always a must stop. The food is delicious, the service top notch and the atmosphere is perfect !
Loved it. Definitely will be back our waitress was amazing and funny.
Too many exotic items on the menu. Just give me plain bacon and eggs
Went to the Spicy Green Bean for the first time today. By far, has the best chicken cutlet and Onion rings ever. Good atmosphere and service as well. Already can't want to go back again, and would recommend this place to everyone i know.
Very interesting menu. I enjoyed my crabmeat Florentine Benedict. Good, bold coffee. However, my wife's omelette was overcooked an not anything like fluffy - over beaten eggs cooked at too high a temp for too long will do that. One other note I shared with the kitchen: a garnish must be fresh to be effective, and a day-old slice of orange does more damage than just leaving it off of the plate. Will we come back, again? Hmm? Not unless we happen to be nearby, and hungry. Otherwise? Not likely. The test of a short order cook is, "can you make a fluffy omelette?"
The peanut butter wings are amazing. Best wings I have ever had
Can’t believe that at 12:30pm on a Saturday afternoon they don’t serve lunch. What’s up with that????? They said no lunch menu until 3pm.
All made from scratch
Fabulous food excellent waiter. We had a wonderful time
The executive chef LJ is incredibly inventive as well as highly skilled and seasoned at his trade. The Purple Goat sandwich and Schrute Farms appetizer are great options for experiencing local goat cheese. Cocktails are pricey but well-crafted (try the peach whiskey mule!) And the menu in general is far from the boring, traditional fare of so many other restaurants. In all, a wonderfully unique dining experience.
The Spicy Green Bean menu has an eclectic mix of Breakfast and Lunch items that are sure to delight your taste buds. On the breakfast side, SGB offers a number of unique omelettes like the Polish Thunder, the Steak Bomb and the Roasted Veggie. In addition to these, SGB has a number of signature specials in their Platinum Breakfasts and half a dozen unique Eggs Benedict offerings. Each breakfast includes their Breffie Potato's, which are a delicious blend of sweet, purple, pink and white spuds, cut in chunks and cooked french fries style. There are at least two dozen unique sandwiches on the lunch menu, as well as burgers and salads. SGB does also cater, bringing their unique food to your event.
I want to give this place 5 stars for their food. Especially their brunch! But the service can be slow at times. Seating is tight but the ambiance is good. Definitely worth trying though. Still need to try their dinner.
The food is fresh and the service great
Real good breakfast if you get the special you get a free mamosa
Food is great and atmosphere even better!
The new, hip vibe in Glastonbury. Outstanding, creative dishes. Fun.
I was excited to try this place given great reviews. I provided my name and was given 15 minutes wait time. I waited an hour we were next I told wait staff it was crazy to wait this long and I had my son waiting . She didn’t care took us off list no apologies and there were more than 5 tables opened.
Great food but be prepared to wait for it. Always busy for breakfast.
What an excellent tasting breakfast.
Fun and hipster joint for breakfast. Good omelettes. Would not do the house made donuts again - too crispy. But would recommend! Art on the wall is for sale!
Great food! Service was a little slow. Definitely would go back!
All the dishes we had were excellent and service was good too. Only minor ding was the skewered chicken in the Mediterranean dish was overcooked. Accommodating to a child with a peanut allergy.
Great food great drinks
Great food. Great service.
Great local restaurant! They make some awesome jalapeño burgers....unique style
Very good service, food is fresh, and have different options than your typical breakfast food. The only thing is that they don't have coffee flavor choices.
A funky little breakfast and lunch spot. Both management and staff have a good sense of humor as you will immediately determine from their menu. Prices were reasonable and wait staff attentive without being obtrusive.
I’m convinced that most of the reviews for this place are fake. The food is bland and the service is inattentive, especially for such a small resturaunt.
Had a wonderful dinner with great service.
New location (on New London) Great atmosphere, creative and delicious food and fantastic service.
The food took along time to come out . The chicken cutlet sandwich didn't have much chicken and it was burnt and over cooked. I visit many restaurants and I was not impressed with this location.
Good food but we waited for 2+ hours. It was painful and I'm not sure worth that amount of lost time. But maybe it speaks to the demand for the vibe/food they provide.
Vegans Unite! Great vegan food options. I had the falafel and broccoli fries and my husband had a salad and they were good clean food. We would return. Thanks for feeding the vegans Spicy Green Bean!
We've been huge fans of the Spicy Green Bean for years, but our first time eating at the new location was so severely disappointing that I felt like I had to leave a review. While the old location was cozy and intimate with eclectic decor and art, the new one feels like someone redecorated a TGI Friday's with items from the TJ Maxx sale section. The quirky charm of the old place has been replaced with fake wood walls, fake plants, bright lights, and loud dance music. We sat at a table made of a large upturned barrel, which meant that we either had to straddle it or sit sideways. Did anyone try sitting at these? They're comically uncomfortable. The new menu was also a disappointment. It's huge, but leaves off long-time favorites like the asian noodle salad and namesake spicy green bean (which I guess makes sense since they've also re-branded themselves as "SGB," which itself feels about as generic and contrived as the décor). The dishes are still interesting and creative, but everything we ate was under-seasoned and our yuca fries (which sound like an awesome idea!) only tasted like the oil they were fried in. I've never written a restaurant review online, but the new Spicy Green Bean is so dramatically different (read: worse) than what it once was that I felt like I had to. It's strange that they're now branding themselves as an "edgy" eatery, when everything unique or edgy has been stripped away. This used to be our favorite restaurant in Glastonbury, but I doubt we'll be back again.
Food was great. Atmosphere was a little loud because no rugs or curtains to soften the sound. I would go there again.
I went today to the spicy bean, looking forward to having breakfast. Christina, our waitress was very nice and super busy. We waited an hour and twenty minutes before leaving! Our order still was not ready, I was really disappointed at the wait time. It's beyond ridiculous! Management should staff appropriately, this is unacceptable for such a small restaurant!
Great brunch spot with a fun & extensive menu. (And a full bar
It was my first visit to the Spicy Green Bean, the waiter was ok at first, welcomed me, then ask me if this was my first time. I said yes. I ordered, I'm not sure what happened but it went down hill from then. The waiter basically ignored me the entire meal. After a 15 min wait for my food and watching the people next to me, who arrived after me receive their food, I flagged down the waiter and asked him what was taking so long, his comment was " oh you got to go, you want me to have them pack it to go?" No, I said just was wondering because I was seated before the people next to me first and the ordered the same thing. He said he was going to check on it. Then came back with my food. He set it down and said nothing. I said thank you. He stopped at my table so far once to check on me. The female waitress was excellent, she waited on people next to me. She refilled their water 7 times, went by to check on them several times. My waiter is still MIA Oh well. It's funny. I hear my waiter telling the people next to me the specials. Sounds delicious. I never had a choice. Well I can say I experienced the Spicy Green Bean....... can't say I'll return.... my waiter may need just a little more training... Haven't felt like a fish out of water in a long time. The food was ok, but my experience left a bad taste in my mouth. Ok, the waiter brings my bill. I give him my credit card. He commits on my picture when he returns. Strikes up a whole conversation. OMG He must wants a tip. LOL. Yes, people I gave him a tip. It was a good one. I am a professional.
Very cool place another must try. Was visiting the area and decided to stop in. So glad my daughter and I did
Cute little place! Adorable :3
Food is outstanding! The only reason that I'm giving this 4 stars instead of 5 is that it's kinda pricey. Highly recommend this place to anyone though.
Great location. Easy walking access if you're in the Downtown Glastonbury, CT area. Very creative dishes, hearty ingredients, huge portions and BYOB, (they do have free mimosas with some dishes.)
A new revamp of this place. Awesome food, good atmosphere. A bit loud with a lot of people but great experience!
My friend loved her food mine not so great under cooked roasted vegetables brought back second time (they basically removed the raw ones) the waitress said no she watched her it was all new veggies (please) I cook for a living . Over priced , way to loud .Never even offered to take it off the bill will never go back again.
Love love love this place! It's become my regular Friday night (date night) dinner with my wife, and we look forward to the creative specials every week. BYOB (with no corkage fee), great food, and a chef that will try anything - what more could you want?
The new place ruined the menu!
I wouldn't eat anything fried here, which is a predominant amount of ingredients are fried. Gluten free? Still deep fried. That freezer doesn't hold temperature during peak business hours on any night which will mess up your insides for a night or two. Staff's great and attractive and all but watch out for the owner. She can get mouthy and disrestpectful at a moments notice, and loves the sound of her own voice. Lots of swearing too but hey, rub her the right way and she'll give you free drinks. Give her a piece of ypur mind and its loud swearing and egotism. Enjoy!
Nephew works there! Great place to eat!!!
Great food, great atmosphere, great people. Definitely recommend for breakfast or drinks
The Spicy Green Bean catered a party I held for 65 people. The food was perfect: something for everyone whether a meat eater or vegetarian. All delicious, beautifully presented. What a marvelous selection of nibbles and dinner was prepared by Kathy and her crew, and the server Nicolle was a pleasure to have assisting with the buffet setup and general all-round help. I enthusiastically recommend The Spicy Green Bean if you are looking for a great caterer for your next gathering.
Cute little spot. Food is very tasty and presented well.
They have a wide variety for their menu selection. The food always comes out great!
Don't be fooled, the breakfast here involves neither spice or green beans. It does, however, offer excellent rotating specials, uncomfortably large omeletes and a Mucha-inspired art deco decor. The wait is well worth the brunch, however, it's always felt understaffed. It looks like only two servers were avaliable for the entire restaurant. I guess good things come to those who (have no choice but) wait.
Worth the wait! Delicious food every time. Cozy eating experience. Service is very friendly and personable. The great for vegetarian vegan and other diet needs.
Great restaurant with amazing breakfast. I love their sweet potato pancakes and their breakfast potatoes!
Wonderful service, great food, awesome menu! Only drawback was the air conditioner wasn't working and it was hot!!! Other than that, I will come back to try other selections on their cool menu!
Small place, worth the wait. Awesome staff.
Artsy cafe with gluten-free buns, sandwich bread and wraps. The veggie burger that had raves reviews wasn't GF. Sweet potato fries are crispy. Before noon, not super busy, but by noon it was packed and noisy with chatter. Best part: the gallery walls! Great pieces all around, but I was drawn to this one series. On the way out I took a photo trying to avoid the diners below...and it was the artist! She's fantastic! Never know who you'll meet :)
Great food and atmosphere
We want to like this place, but every time we go we are disappointed. We waited nearly a half hour outside for a table- despite three vacant tables waiting (several other couples waited as well- one with a baby). The food is decent, but not spectacular. You will wait at least an hour for it to cook- whether you order an egg sandwich or eggs benedict. EVERYTHING here also contains pork- even their potatoes are cooked in bacon grease. It's not vegetarian or allergy friendly by any means. And special requests- such as cooking your eggs thoroughly, or making your meal without ham- will not be honored the first time around. While we want to support a local place with local spirit, this place is just too disorganized. At least the staff kindly takes mistakes off your bill or doesn't charge for your coffee to try to make up for it.
Very yummy and filling brunch. Loved my kielbasa omelette. Service was good and friendly and the food was great. Much of it too, got to bring home a snack for later. Prices were excellent for what I got. Definately going back.
Very slow service
