    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!

    The food was delicious. However, the service was extremely slow. We sat down at 6.30pm and barely left by 9pm. This was for the preset Saturday menu too, so I couldn't understand why it took so long to bring some salad and boil some ravioli? Anyway, probably won't be back. sorry.

    This was our first time at Green's & it was spectacular! We were there for Sunday brunch; I chose the Mesquite grilled brochettes & my fiance chose the pinnacles scramble. Our meals were cooked to perfection & the staff gave excellent service! The restaurant is very clean, super tall ceilings & lots of windows to take in the breathtaking view of SF bay & the golden gate bridge.

    I've eaten at Greens on and off for over 25 years. It has only improved with consistent exquisitely fresh and delicious produce, great pizza and pasta, nice moderate priced wine list and lovely, gentle servers. The pacing of the food is rather sophisticated considering the casual atmosphere and the view....well, it is unparalleled! Vegetarian does not mean flavorless here. The spice palate and variation offers something to fit every person's taste. Oh yes, and the desserts! Yum! Best vanilla ice cream ever! and the fruit and berries were perfectly ripe and beautiful to look at before we gobbled it up with delight.

    The ambience is unforgettable - the grey-and-scarlet foggy sunset outside, the lights of SF coming on, the boats of the Marina gently bobbing in the surf...Even if you are not a vegetarian, the food here will change your mind. To find better vegetarian fare you'll have to travel to the Pure Lotus restaurant in Yangshou. China. SF is closer!

    My wife and I hadn't been to Greens in about 30 years until we enjoyed Sunday brunch there on a recent trip to San Francisco. You can't beat the view of the Golden Gate Bridge over the boats in the marina, and Greens' location in Fort Mason provides a pleasant place to stroll before or after a meal. We remembered the food from decades ago as good, but uninspired, vegetarian fare. Now it's outstanding. The fresh ingredients, original flavor combinations, and skillful preparation result in dishes that will appeal to all diners, vegetarian or not. If you go for brunch, try the Cornmeal Pancakes with fresh fruit and mascarpone or Polenta Hash with eggs and an avocado salad. Both were delicious.

    We had another excellent meal at Green's. The food is always imaginatively prepared, and is created chiefly for the palate rather than trying to be a piece of modern art. We've been going there for over 20 years and have rarely been disappointed. If you love delicious, clean, attractive, imaginatively-prepared, full-flavored food and friendly service, this is the place to go --- vegetarian or not!

    Greens is great on many levels. From outside in: Easy parking in SF; still interesting interior with art and views and those cool redwood burl carvings. Creative menu- complex with simple fresh ingredients. Limited wine list but one that works exceptionally with the food. We had an amazing and knowledgeable server Laurie who made the experience even better.

    We especially loved the chili poblano - delicious, rich and filling. Friendly, responsive servers who seemed to all enjoy working there and really loved that we had a good time. The desserts were also delicious, with interesting pairings of flavours. Also - you can't go past that view. Boats bobbing on the watet in front of the Golden Gate Bridge. For a special night out eating delicious vegetarian food, I would definitely go back to Greens.

    Someone had reccomended me this restaurant for the good customer service. I booked a week in advance and made a very specific request, nobody informed they couldn't fullfil it. When I got there they just said, sorry we can't do that. The food was ok, if I had eaten in a steeet quiosk, would've been better. Never come back and will let my friend who refered me know, so others don't fall in the same mistake. Would give zero stars if available.

    We loved our lunch, enthusiastic server, and getting to be in the little room away from the noise/bustle but still had a view. I have been to Greens occasionally over the years (I live 40 miles north of SF). I brought my guests from Scotland and they loved it, even took a photo of their "colorful" veggie lunch. It was my treat, and I was shocked to see that the glass of wine my guests ordered cost $11 each! We had just come from the Buena Vista where a glass of wine was $6.50 - I think that Greens mark up is exorbinant. I will pay for good food, but feel fleeced with the glass of wine charge. Still the food and ambience is well worth a visit to this SF icon!
