    My husband and I hardly make it up to the Marina, but made a special trip to Greens for our Anniversary. We waited a few minutes for a window seat to become available. The spectacular view of the Golden Gate Bridge and surroundings was well worth the wait. Dinner was delicious. The service was great. They even brought us vegan (for me) and non-vegan (for him) desserts on the house in honor of our special night. It was a wonderful night. I hope to repeat it next year. Or sooner!

    To my surprise they have a 4 course set menu for dinner, no other options. 60 dollars for what is really a good lunch or normal dinner. First course is bread and olives, that is not what i would call a seperate course. Food was fine but very overpriced! I wont be back for these prices...

    Greens continues to deliver great tasting food, very nice atmosphere/view, and kind service. It is a wonderful experience AND you walk out feeling wonderful (not overstuffed like lots of restaurants). I am mostly a carnivore but I get a great meal here that is satisfying. The expansive view of the San Francisco Bay and Golden Gate Bridge alone is worth it. Prices are fair for the high quality, great tasting, well-presented food, and nice well-trained servers.

    Joined a friend who lives abroad and we both loved it. One of the quietest and most scenic in SF. This is gourmet vegetarian so dinners should be prepared for small appetizer plates and prices that reflect quality of produce and care of preparation. I keep going back and have since the 80s.

    service has really stepped up as of late. Used to be very good, now it is friendly as well as thoughtful and efficient. Food is always beyond expectations in creativity, quality and execution. And on a clear day you can see forever, or as far as the bay view will take you.

    I have been going here for more than 12 years and still love it. I have to say the menu keeps getting more varied and creative each year. I took my Mom here for her birthday dinner. She loved it! The view is the best kept secret in San Francisco. Couple that with the food, the wonderful customers service and lively atmosphere and you're in for a very nice night out.

    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.

    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.

    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.
