Diner Reviews
  • "We went here for a Great view, which is awesome. Food is delicious except for the fact that we didnt have much Menu Options. Only 4-5 main course i believe."

  • "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."

  • "I am a hard core carnivore, and I liked it. I have been to several vegetarian restaurants, but other than Green Zebra in Chicago this is the only vegetarian restaurant to make me not miss meat."

  • "Greens is one of the best restaurants of any type in SF. We're not vegetarians and love it, for the food and the view. Exceptional attention and service too."

  • "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 The ambiance seems slightly outdated but the views are wonderful.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."

  • "Being a carnivor the thought of a Vegetarian Restaurant was taken under advisment. The food was magnificent! Fresh food with wonderful flavors. One place you cannot miss."

  • "Consistently excellent, beautiful fresh food. I always feel great after a meal at Greens. plus, the sunset view is unparalleled in San Francisco."

  • "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."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "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."

  • "It was wonderful, as usual! Even my Manhattan gourmet brother with his high standards was pleased. Greens is my favorite restaurant in the world!!"
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "We had a great evening at the restaurant. The food was great and the view amazing. The service was also good. Our table was only in a kind of private room. Some of our party liked that but we missed the activity of the restaurant which some of us found a pity."
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "My girlfriend and I were seated promptly even though I mistakenly arrived 30 minutes before our reservation. We were seated at the best table I'm the house, which earned many more points for me. Beautiful views of the harbor and GGB. The food was amazing as well as the bloody Mary's."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "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."

  • "Greens is a wonderful SF resource and I not only love the food, but the crowd, which usually reflects a pleasant cross section of San Franciscans. Who would have thought that a peach and cheese would go so well together!"
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "Based on on-line reviews, we knew the food would be excellent. It was. Bonus: It was possible to talk to our table mates without shouting. 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."

  • "VERY lovely hostess who sat us despite being late near a view table. Waiters were so-so: sensed always a little attitude. Chef may want to experiment with some more piquant flavors"

  • "I visited Greens restaurant for a celebratory dinner during a short stay up in San Francisco. I had heard wonderful things about this restaurant and was not disappointed by my dining experience. Although the restaurant was busy, we were well attended to. The food was divine... fresh and delicious. The wine and cocktails paired perfectly with our food. I'd definitely return."

  • "We enjoyed a very relaxing dinner to celebrate an anniversary. Great views. Plenty of room between tables. We were not rushed to finish by staff. GG Bridge slowly disappeared in the fog. Food was delicious and healthy. Greens has its resonance of being a fixture for close to 40 years, and a culinary innovator. And it's a beautiful, relaxing space to be in. Great floral bouquets. The crazy burled art furniture captures the gestalt."

  • "We took the bus to Greens. It looked like we might have been in the wrong place, but when we opened the door the place was packed. Definitely make a reservation! The food was marvelous: inventive, beautiful, wonderfully prepared. Our server was as good as it gets. She was knowledgeable and friendly, but not intrusive. She gave us information about the place, the food, buses, etc. This was a highpoint of San Francisco. We will definitely go again."

  • "You don't have to be vegetarian to appreciate the cuisine at this fine dining establishment. From beginning to end every course is a culinary adventure and gustatory revelation. The entire staff is top notch, the service impeccable. Every time we travel to SF this is our first stop."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "We dined for lunch and loved everything, especially the pupusas. The linguine with parsley and roasted tomatoes was delicate and satisfying. The featured pizza was fig and caramelized onion and it was superb, with a very light crust and just enough honey. Service was friendly and it's nice to dine with both a view and a noise level that allows for conversation."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "The stuffed Poblano Chili I had was spicy and delicious. My friend's Linguini dish was filled with all kinds of tasty veggies and cheese and such a gigantic portion she couldn't finish so she'd have room for the Chocolate Torte. I loved the Raspberry Tart. Service was perfect."

  • "The salads are delicious but for the price they are very small. On a whole the view and ambiance are wonderful."

  • "We had a wonderful dinner at Greens-- it's a great spot with excellent service. All the produce was so fresh and delicately prepared. Though the ingredients were top notch, we felt that the green gulch gem salad lacked something (pepper?), and the italian bean soup was rather bland. The fig, arugula, and goat cheese pizza and Moroccan chickpea dishes were better."

  • "Disappointed Saturday is three course prix fixe menu night. Being induced to eat and drink more than is desired is out of date. The concept is entirely suited to please the restaurant, not customers. They offer a limited menu for a set price. They don't have the expense of wasted food from things not ordered and they decide what you must eat. Out of a table of four, one couldn't eat any of the meal they ordered. Waiter didn't offer to bring something else or take it off the bill (and how would that be done with prix fixe - another problem avoided). Second diner ate but didn't like his meal, but also said nothing. The other two were satisfied. This night was the opposite of weekday a la cart dining."
