    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.

    This was our first time at Green's!! What a positive experience. The food was delicious, different, and beautifully presented. We were there on a Saturday night and it was a prix fix menu. Although the food was wonderful, I would have liked to choose my courses from an extended menu, so we will probably try it again on another night that is not a Saturday.

    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!

    The atmosphere is wonderful with such a beautiful view of the bay. The service was very good. The food was tasty but the portions were small. I thought everything was overpriced. We had 3 people in our party and each had one glass of wine and an appetizer , entree and dessert. Our bill was over $200. It is a lot of money for vegetables and fruit!! Middle class folks can't afford this place.

    I've eaten at this previously fabulous vegetarian place many times. This dinner was bad. The Chili was OK, carrot-leek soup was tasteless, yellow curry was barely edible and vegetables in it were overcooked and underseasoned. Polenta side dish was inedible. Service was there if they happened to pass by and we could stop them. It was noisy. It was expensive. Parking is generally available at night but parking meters go until 11pm. Overall, a shocking departure from past experiences. Everything was bland with an emphasis on vegetable mush.

    I have been a fan of Greens for many years, going there with out of town guests. The views of the GG Bridge and Bay are spectacular. I love the cookbooks and own Fields of Greens and Everyday Greens. On this visit, the restaurant was very busy so not feeling as intimate as I had remembered. The food was good but not great. Not as innovative or interesting as I recall. I had the soft tacos, which really weren't that flavorful. The spring roll appetizer was good as was the peanut sauce. Fresh but nothing that exciting from a flavor standpoint. The mushroom garnish with the spring rolls was really noteworthy, however, with a wonderful, complimentary vinegar marinade. Overall, a little disappointing based on expectations and prior experience.

    I enjoyed the eggplant sandwich and the service was very good but I was there to have a conversation with one other person and I could hardly hear her because there was so much background noise. I'm sorry, but I won't go there for a lunch meeting again because of the noise. They need to fix that because the location is beautiful and the food is very good.

    My husband and I had our 25th wedding anniversary dinner at Greens towards the end of the day. We had made a reservation and requested seating near the windows overlooking the marina and bay. They were not able to put us directly by the window but did the next best thing. The food was excellent, just the right amount, and served at the right pace. They are so inventive with their produce combinations and sauces. Highly recommend, even if you are not a vegetarian.

    I found Greens to be a 5 star experience for me and our party -- for service, food and atmosphere. We arrived just when the sun was setting behind the Golden Gate Bridge -- in full view through those floor-to-ceiling windows. Quite spectacular. The food was fresh, beautifully presented and tasted wonderful. The atmosphere was so pretty -- this magnificent piece of burlwood takes your breath away at the entrance, the whole side of the restaurant opens up to the marina and the GG Bridge and the interior is very warm and inviting. I also liked that there is not a bad seat in the house as the view is enjoyed by all no matter where you sit. Thank you for this memorable experience. I will be back!

    Greens shows that vegetarian isn't synonymous with boring! Run by the Zen Center of San Francisco, they specialize in using fresh and seasonal fruits and vegetables, some of which is grown on their farm in Olema. I am never disappointed when I eat there.
