    I've always loved the food at Greens. This time though the service wasn't very good. Not that our waiter didn't get us all we ordered, but i felt like he wanted to be somewhere else, but working at Greens that day. Not engaging, not friendly.

    It's been 20 years since my husband and I last ate at Greens. Now that we live on the West Coast, we look forward to eating there more often! It would be difficult to find a more beautiful location with it's high beamed ceiling and large windows overlooking the marina with the sun shining through. My husband in not vegetarian, but he really loved our lunch. I am vegetarian and Greens is one of the best.

    I love to dine at Greens. From the moment I am greeted by the glorious seasonal floral arrangement to the last bite of dessert, I am always surprised and delighted. The setting with the view of the SF Bay, the yachts, and the Golden Gate Bridge is a feast for the eyes and the innovative presentation of consciously raised ingredients a feast for the palette. I particularly enjoyed the pupusas, the fire roasted poblano chili filled with and assortment of delicious ingredients, and the coconut rice pudding. While I love the food at Greens, I also appreciate the attentive--but never rushed--service, the spacious room with open seating, and the comfortable atmosphere. Dining at Greens always feels special, but never fussy or pretentious.

  • Disappointing Vegetarian

    Dined on 10/17/2014
    There were 3 of us and we all ordered different 3 courses. The description of the food was mouthwatering. The main ingredients were fresh and should have been easy to enhance. The primary flavor in some dishes was "hot" seasoning buffered by avocado or sour cream. This is common and not creative. The skewers of vegetables were covered in a spicy green sauce and accompanied by bland rice mixture. The skewers had mushroom, tofu, onion and corn still on the cob. What the veggies were was irrelevant because they all tasted like the spicy sauce. The green curry was bland. The bread was hard and cold. The deserts could have been from any bakery, not creative. Green's is not a unique and likely stays in business because of it's history.

    Dined on 10/11/2014
    The view was great (in part because I was lucky enough to get a table right against the window during sunset). The food was OK, but nothing special, certainly nothing to justify the price. $24 for two cocktails, $9.00 for two iced teas, $55 per person for some vegetables. Add it all up and the bill was $170 for two people for a meal that was just not that great. $170 elsewhere would have been spectacular. Service was slow but very polite.

    As a vegetarian I find great difficulty with very limited choices on most menus, so it was a great experience to have absolute freedom of choice in Greens. All the staff were very helpful and friendly, from the welcome to arranging a taxi. From the food point of view, everything was very fresh and appetising and flavours were outstanding. The serving staff were extremely friendly and took time to show an interest in us as visitors. Great ambiance in the large space but quite high noise levels although not an issue. I find wine list prices generally high in San Francisco, perhaps double European levels for similar quality so a half bottle sufficed.

    The vegetarian fare here is original and delicious enough to satisfy carnivores The ambiance was great. We had a table looking out over the bay. Our only thumbs down was the bread in the bread basket was tough and chewy and not very flavorful. They could do better on this. We would definitely go back, however, despite the bread.

    Dined on 10/7/2014
    We eat a plant based diet so Green's has long been on our short list of SF faves, but our birthday celebration dinner really exceeded our already high expectations. There was a lovely view of the setting sun behind clouds and the Golden Gate, but it was the food that stirred the soul. My husband had the poblano pepper stuffed with all kinds of spicy veggies and I had a garbanzo bean and potato stew with Harissa. Meat eaters, fear not. You will be satisfied on every level. We added an Almond strawberry cake with strawberry sorbet for dessert.We were initially disappointed not to have scored a waterside table after requesting one in advance, but our redwood table was cozy and had a fine view too.

    On our trip around California Greens was by far the best restaurant we visited. As a vegetarian it is rare to get so much choice and everything on offer was superb. Attentive and friendly waiting staff; good quality produce; good wine selection; wonderful choices; the list goes on. Just wish it was a bit closer to home!!

    As a vegan living in the bay area, this is a place I had been waiting to go to for awhile. Unfortunately the restaurant did not live up to the hype. Service wasn't horrible, just not....good. Food was good but I expected a lot more from a restaurant with such great history. Won't be going back anytime soon.

    Is there a better view in all of San Francisco than at Greens? I think not. Do not be concerned that the food is vegetarian and think it won't be good. I had the BEST thai rolls with peanut sauce I have ever had. And the pasta was fantastic. This place is very cool, and truly a 100 Best in the Bay Area.

    I had reservations at 1:15 on 9/28. We got to the restaurant at 1:05 and the hostess said to wait because she will be sitting us at the reservation time. We got back at 1:15 and she said that she was looking for us (????) and because she didn't find us and she gave our table to somebody else. And we have to wait for another 10 minutes. She then gave us the table in the little corner, which we didn't want. After I talked with the other host on duty he gave us a reasonable table, but we did have to wait for another 10 minutes. We were celebrating my daughter's birthday (14) so all that could have been avoided. Really unfortunate! We have been vegetarian for years and we love Greens, such a moment though!
