  • best curry ever, hands down
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/26/2014
    Food was terrific. The neighborhood is a little odd--it feels like you are heading somewhere abandoned. But once there, the place is alive with people and activity inside. Never had a better curry--outstanding subtle notes. The view is spectacular and the restaurant itself is quite beautiful and spacious and airy. Service very professional, friendly but not intrusive.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/25/2014
    Terrific on so many levels. The food is incredible and all vegetarian. Newly GF, I was able to select from almost everything on the menu. The dining room is really beautiful with terrific views of the bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. Just be aware that it is in an old warehouse building and there is very little signage to tell you that it is located there.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014

    I would have preferred a lunch or earlier dinner to brunch since I am not a great fan of eggs. Also my special fruity drink wasn't very good. Their menu is very creative and the food very good. I would like it if they had more gluten free options, particularly pasta and breads. Always go during daylight hours since the views are so lovely. The wait staff are really fine and ready to spend time to clarify the menu. Reservations are almost essential. One does not miss meat here because of such wonderful creative menu choices. Do not miss the soups. I had a vegan cauliflower soup that was great and have had other soups in the past, all of which were really great and healthy to boot.

  • Veggie Delight!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 8/24/2014
    Greens is always a home run for a special occasion or just a nice lunch time treat. our food was first rate, service was good, and on a nice sunny day, you just can't beat the Fort Mason location, right on the water. I am vegetarian and my friend is vegan. It is always nice to come to Greens where these eating preferences do not pose a problem in terms of menu options. We had a very nice meal and were pleased with the experience in every way. I have eaten at Greens many times, and will certainly do so again, in the near future. First Rate!

    I appreciate why people rave about this restaurant. The view, the atmosphere and creatively delivered food. But, if you order badly you get a plate of soggy tacos drowned in sweet corn with a type of BBQ sauce. If this excites you - then this is your restaurant. I was also disappointed to learn they don't offer gluten free pasta as an alternative.

    The tables are too tightly spaced for privacy. With a mix of humor and horror we overheard every word of our neighboring table's Lothario as he boorishly attempted to pick the locks of his attractive tablemate. It really put us off the otherwise very good food.

    Great location and the food was delicious but the service was not so good. The waitress barely smiled, didn't bring water when we asked. The sandwhich didn't have pesto on it as it was described on the menu and I tried to get the waitress's attention, she ignored us. She had a lackluster approach to working with people. I usually tip well but not this time.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014

    We have eaten here many times over the years. We always anticipate the visit. However, the brunch spinach omelet on this day was terrible! Both my wife & I agreed. I only ate half of mine. The server seemed basically detached & uninterested. I noticed he spent more time talking to the bar keep than paying attention to his tables. On the postitve side, the reception personal were excellent.

    Greens has a wonderful selection for vegetarians that still manage to appeal to meat eaters. Great attention was paid to creating our delicious cocktails. The ambiance seems slightly outdated but the views are wonderful. The service by our main server was terrible, she sat to the bar and stared at us while our water cup remained empty, and her sparse interactions were rude. It made us very uncomfortable. Her assistant server was a delight though, he was great with the kids and was very pleasant. The food was good but lacked the sense of unique delight I was hoping for, the feeling you get when you can't wait to tell people about a restaurant...especially for the prices. I will say, the fig pizza might bring me back.

    This is a gem of a restaurant. The food is fantastic and the ambience and view from this bay overlook is second to none. It is NOT cheap but the service and food quality did not dissappoint. Recommend this strongly..although have only been there twice. Once in Aug 2012 and again in Aug 2014. Definitely special occasion territory!

    The view never changes. The food is always creative and outstanding. But service can be perfunctory at times. Not on our last visit. The server was upbeat, attentive, professional and personal. She took Greens from a consistently fine experience to a memorable one. Attitude does make a difference.

    Food was fantastic and our waiter was top of the game in service. He was able to discuss and comment on our good and wine selection and when we had a question about a couple of the red wines he just brought us a few glasses to sample before we made up our minds. Overall a great dinner. They did take too long to seat us. We had an 8pm reservation, but we had to wait 30min before our table was ready.

    A lovely SF spot with view of the Bay and Golden Gate Bridge. The Sat fixed-price menu with a glass of wine was exquisite -- well worth the drive up from San Jose to meet an old friend from Berkeley, as we've been doing for 10 years... Particularly enjoyed the Ricotta corn cakes, wild mushroom ravioli, and Butterscotch Pot De Crème with coffee.

    Every dish was a carefully composed piece of art: for the eye and the mouth. The vegetables are perfectly done - never a mushy carrot or overcooked anything. The flavors are complex and varied and the sauces are intersting. Care and attention is paid to the smallest detail. The meal was pleasing and tasty but I'm a carnivore so it didn't knock me out. The view was amazing at sunset. We scored a small room to the left of the dining room for our college reunion party of five. I would definitely return. A wonderful all round experience.

How lovely to go to a restaurant and hear restaurant sounds and not a throbbing, ear-splitting sound track that drowns out all conversation! Also, our server was excellent, efficient and knowledgeable about food and wine options. Highly recommend!

    I had the linguine which was yummy. Flavor was mild and I tend to like more bold flavors. I also had the butterscotch pot d'creme and I could have licked the bowl. It was excellent. The view is awesome. It does tend to get a little noisey but it is such a pleasant experience overall you tend to forget about it. We went to lunch a little later so it wasn't as loud.
