how similar are chives and green onion?

I was at a restaurant yesterday, a national steakhouse chain. The waitress asked if I would like sour cream and chive on my potato, I said yes (of course). When the potato came there was sour cream and green onions on my potato. I proceeded to pick them off as I don't really like raw green onions on a potato. Whe the waitress came back to ask if everything is okay, I almost didn't say anything...but darn it it was not ok.
I told her that It was a little bit misleading to say chives when the potato is served with green onion. I wonder if the resaurant tells them to say chives instead of green onion cause it sounds better.
Did I over react? are they really almost the same thing.
