Vegetarian excellenceThis is the standard setter in vegetarian restaurants; all of the food is expertly prepared and well-presented. It's located on a pier adjacent to a marina, so the setting is lovely as well, and if the weather's good, it's a terrific place for brunch or lunch.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMLives up to reputation!!!Greens continues to live up to its reputation in terms of quality of food, service, and atmosphere. I had a Mexican vegetable soup for my appetizer with a Bourbon Mojito (The Lawnmower) and the Mediterranean Salad for my entree. Taste!!! Greens does this by really bringing out the taste of the food rather than saturating your meal with spices. I've found over the years that this is what differentiates great vegetarian cuisine from the average...quality vegetarian chefs know how to foreground the real taste of the vegetables they feature. And few do it as well as Greens. I've been coming here off and on for years and this time came with a close friend who was visiting from D.C. and left with a wonderfully memorable culinary experience!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMSaturday night fixed menuSaturday night fixed menu was perfect for a special birthday celebration for a Vegetarian. Beautiful and delicious offerings of fresh, seasonal ingredients were well paired. Wait staff were attentive to our needs and provided tastes and extras for the "birthday girl." Incredible view of the Golden Gate Bridge to compliment the meal. I loved the spices and combination of my filo wrap and another of our party had a ravioli dish that captured the freshness of Spring. Wonderful splurge for a special occasion.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOther than the somewhat ordinaryOther than the somewhat ordinary pizza, the food was eclectic and extraordinary. Really a dining experience!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFort Mason SanctuaryGreen's restaurant is the most delightful place to go for lovely vegetarian food when visiting Ft. Mason. It resonates with everything I love about the Bay Area - especially the view!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dining experienceThe menu had a variety of excellent options for any taste. My wife is vegetarian, and I am not, neither of us had any issue finding great dinner choices. Great dining experience on the marina.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Food, but too noisyThe food was outstanding! But it was quite a bit too noisy for our tastes. My wife and I like to be able to talk to dinner guests without yelling at them. We could only hear about half of what was said, and our hearing is excellent. Maybe some nice relaxing music would help, or maybe there was music and we just couldn't hear it over the roar.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMagain deliciousGreen's has excellent vegetarian food and the view at sunset is spectacular from most of the tables.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMVegetarian classicStill going strong after all these years!
Thank you for showing us the "slow way".5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGourmet Vegetarian with ViewGreens has excellent vegetarian food with a killer view of the Golden Gate bridge and sailboats on San Francisco Bay.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mother's Day breakfast!For years I've come to Greens and the food and service have been consistently good.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOrganic, Vegetarian, Great LocationThis is a gem of a restaurant. The herbs and toppings and the way the food is prepared with care, ends up in a very tasty dish. The view is remarkable as is the light streaming through. This is one of my favourite places.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers Day Home RunGreens was a total delight for our Mothers Day dinner, from the easy parking, friendly and efficient reception, and quick seating at a great table (in the window overlooking the sailboats), to the wine and food choices, and the solicitous and genial wait staff. We'll definitely return again, and again!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful experience!!everything about Greens is fabulous....and the view of the GG Bridge...the sunsets...priceless.....oh...the food...very tasty and tastefully displayed...........5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat vegetarian spotWe enjoyed great food, wine, and dessert. The waiter was very helpful with selecting menu items and the service was excellent!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic vegetarian food.Fantastic vegetarian food. A full menu of gourmet possibilities for the vegetarian foodie, not just one or two choices.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA great vegetarian restaurantAs someone with extensive experience in vegetarian cooking and dining, I was still surprised at how awfully good the food is at this classic S.F. vegetarian restaurant. I loved the use of greens, including fennel, with the cheese plate, turning a basic food experience into an adventure in flavor and texture. We've been to Greens several times since it opened in the seventies, and the experience is an unchanging pleasure, one of the few bits of permanence in a floating sea of restaurants that come and go. Maybe it's the Zen influence, but whatever it is, I'd recommend this place to anyone capable of enjoying vegetables at their very best. The wine list was also first rate, as were the view of the Golden Gate and the steady, reliable service.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreens Still DeliversHave been coming to Greens for over 20 years but hadn't been in a while. Had out of town, vegan friends visiting - along with my decidedly NON-vegan family - what to do? Remembered Greens and it was perfect! Everyone enjoyed their food, the view is one of the best in SF, and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. We closed down the restaurant and no one even raised an eyebrow. Highly recommend this - even if you're omnivorous.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThe view is the best thing going onThe vegetarian choices were plentiful, but similar to what I cook at home. Was expecting a more unusual menu. The bruchettes were OK, not great. The rice that came with them, although a healthy type, was bland. A bit pricey for the quality of food. But you can't beat the view.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful - twiceOld time place that remains really great...for food; view; service and consistency. I have been going for many years, visited their farms in Marin and bring many friends. Thanks.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOlad standard, not as sharpWe got there at 7 PM. The rush started just after 7:30, so we sat a long time with uncleared plates, until we finally caught the waiter's eye. She apologied, but still... This is not an inexpensive place to eat.
The food was great. Atmosphere is a little seer, and the high ceilings and hard surfaces make it a little noisy (again from the rush?)
Go whenever you can.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMVeganarianGreat service and atmosphere. Views are gorgeous. Food was excellent. Vegetarian menu also included vegan options which was important to us.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious brunchWe came here for brunch with a couple of friends. Everything we tasted was delicious. very fine taste and interesting flavors.
Being close to the water and the boats also adds to the charm!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMPanoramic B-Day Brunch Sans ToastTook my spouse for Birthday/Sunday Brunch. As is the case these days, the word "brunch" is a very loose term. Still, exciting a la carte menu. I had the foraged mushroom omlette with yellow finger potatoes that was one of the best I have eaten!. However, a $17 omlette should not lack toast and jam -disappointment. BRUNCH IS STILL BREAKFAST!!!
My partner had Green's version of Huevos Rancheros, with a special request for egg whites; the verdict was the same as mine: Delicious.
We made reservations online through Open Table, asking to give the birthday boy a great table, and they certainly did. The table was windowside, views out over the bay and Marina Green to the Golden Gate Bridge were exceptional. Service was very good.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentI haven't been to Greens in awhile, but I've never been disappointed. The Pinnacles Scramble was amazing, my husband's Griddle Cakes were delicious, and the service was the best!! Can't wait to go back.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMCreative VegetarianThis is the place to go for creative and delicious vegetarian choices. Great wine list and teas. Really beautiful location, but very noisy.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA Zen ExperienceOne thing I notice when I sat at my table that my table did not have any condiments, like salt, pepper etc.
When the food arrive I release why!! I was the most tasty "Delicious" meal I've ever had. Without adding anything else.
It was just the way it should be........a Zen Omg.......5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service at Greens!We booked a table for 6 to celebrate my wife's 70th birthday. Eight family members arrived and the hostess was able to accommodate us in a separate room which was quiet and perfectly suited for our group. The menu has improved from a year ago and was more vegan-friendly. The servers were friendly and helpful. A thoroughly enjoyable experience! We will do this again when we celebrate a family event.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWelcome back GreensIt has been years since we dined here as previous visits bordered on the terrible - wait staff higher than kites and food quality mediocre - when it finally arrived. I had written this place off. Out of town guests prompted a re-look and are week absolutely tickled with the place - our server was outstanding, very knowledgeable and unobtrusive. The food came out hot and well presented.All four of us truly enjoyed our dishes.
What was amazing is this took place 3 days after the chef had been killed in a tragic car accident. Kudos to the staff5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful timeWent here for our anniversary and everything was perfect. Perfect view, service, and food. If I could cook food like that I'd be vegetarian in a heartbeat.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMVegetarian HeavenEven if you aren't a vegetarian, the food at Green's is wonderful. The quality of their ingredients, attention to detail, and the melding of all of the wonderful flavors in your mouth make for a sumptuous dining experience. Not to mention the beautiful view of the marina, bay, and Golden Gate Bridge in the distance. I recommend going just prior to sunset.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday nightGreens was delicious, simple, and affordable for a birthday date night. Interesting menu with portions large enough to share. Parking always available, and if you're lucky, you can catch a beautiful sunset over the water.
Don't skip dessert!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreens was very accommodating, YUM!Thank you Greens! We were 45 mins late for our window view table because GPS took us the wrong way. Greens and its staff very kind, we waited 10 mins and received a gorgeous window table for our special occasion family brunch party! It was a lovely brunch, however we were not as excited about our menu choices as we have been in the past. Previous dinner choices were outstanding.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI've eaten at Green's manyI've eaten at Green's many times over the years-I have to say, our dinner Saturday night was really exceptional-we all loved it. Jean4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ambiance, wonderfulGreat ambiance, wonderful view, excellent food... actually I spent the entire day after my dinner there thinking about what a great meal I had. Our waitress was short and made multiple mistakes none of which dampened our experience, but none the less, noteable. Great find, highly recommended.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a lovely lunch at Greens:We had a lovely lunch at Greens: obviously a great view and interesting building, and both the waitstaff and host were most accommodating and friendly.
While the food was tasty, all of the serving sizes were tiny and prices were quite high!
We left still hungry and stopped for dinner several hours later.
Have fun, just be prepared for a light lunch!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service and ambiance areThe service and ambiance are top notch.

We will definitely return.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMVery NorCal!!!This is one of my favorite places to go on a date, or take out of town guests who want a real NorCal eating experience. The food is amazing (I even took a meat and potatoes guy here and he loved it). Cocktails are a bit pricey. The view is equally amazing. Nice cozy atmosphere. Love the burl wood tables!

The staff were very accommodating however, covering our first round of drinks to apologize for the delay. The food was very good, the service quick (perhaps because of the prix fixe menus on Saturday nights). The non-alcoholic beverages were also worth the price, very tasty.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was fresh and uniquelyThe food was fresh and uniquely delicious and great service.
