I came here probably three times, and each time I went, I've had a great experience. The servers are always polite, and the ambience is great.
The food is always in giant portions without being too expensive, and it tastes excellent.
The only issue I've ever had was when I went with a couple of girlfriends, two of which were stared at and treated very well, while my other friend and I sat there, waiting to get our orders through. (despite sitting at the same table). You can really tell that pretty girls get the VIP treatment there.
I am sorry to hear about the previous reviewer's experience. I had a great dinner at Mr. Greenjeans. The atmosphere was friendly, nice, warm. The service was good, considering how busy it was when we arrived. I had an excellent pasta alfredo. All in all, a good experience. I would say that the restuarant is a sttep above a family restaurant, but not quite "fancy". I would recommend Mr. Greenjeans for a nice night out.
Mr. Greenjeans was by far the WORST experience I have had at a restaurant in Toronto. I went here after watch the Obama Inauguration speech in Yonge/Dundas square. A friend of mine and myself wanted to go eat lunch, relax and listen to the rest of the days events.
We entered the restaurant and they almost immediately muted the tvs that were showing the broadcasts but then started to pump upbeat music. I asked if there was an area we could sit where we could listen while we eat. The others that were already dining were protesting that they too came in to eat and would like to listen to the broadcast that was now muted. The bartender (rude), told us that we could all go home to where our TVs were. We asked to speak to a manager and she came out and told us that they had the audio on for the speech but turned it off as most people wanted to hear music. It was then that others in the restaurant (the majority) started to protest and say that they wanted to hear the speech not music.
The bartender protested to a man sitting at the bar saying "i've had enough, I am not serving those people". A hostess then seated us and we were going to order but the bartender kept muttering complaints about us. At that point I had lost my appetite and decided that we would leave. I will NEVER return here again and will advise ANYONE WHO WILL LISTEN to NEVER GO TO MR. GREENJEANS. That is, until they replace that bartender and start listening to their patrons.
Funnily enough, they did put back on the tv audio as we were leaving and when the manager lady went to talk to the bartender, he kept flailing his hands and talking about 'us people making him sick and how he can't stand Obama reports on tv etc' I have to say that I am SO highly offended by this place that it makes me SICK just thinking about it. I have reviewed it on almost every Toronto dining website possible and plan on still writing a letter of complaint to the manager....not that I would EVER eat there again but I have to let them know how offensive our experience was.
