Greens is open for indoor and outdoor dining with take out at the Greens to Go service counter. When reserving a table outdoors, we recommend bringing a jacket that is suitable for wind and chilly weather. Our heated dining pavilion is in front of the Greens building.

Diners savor Greens imaginative vegetarian cuisine that features local and seasonal produce and the finest ingredients from our organic farm Green Gulch. Focusing on creative and nutritious meals balanced in flavor and textures, our menus are inspired by farmers, relationships and stories around the world. Located in Landmark Building A of the historic Fort Mason Center, Greens is home to some of the most dramatic views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Marin Headlands that San Francisco has to offer.

Short of staff. Limited menu during Sunday lunch. We had a reservation but we still needed to wait for 15 minutes when there were empty tables available.

Great service and food. My only request would be that they bring back the Chai Latte. An Excellent vegetarian restaurant. Perhaps the best in San Francisco. And there’s plenty of parking.

The service was outstanding. From the moment you walk in until you leave you are made to feel welcome and your patronage is appreciated. The food is awesome and most items can be prepared vegan.

This restaurant is one of the best vegetarian/vegan restaurants I’ve been to since I became a vegan 3 years ago! The food was beyond amazing and the service was even better. Our server Scott was very friendly and recommended amazing dishes for us to order. Even the food runners/bussers were friendly. Overall, we had an amazing experience and we will be recommending Greens to everyone we know!

It was a sunny balmy day in SF, 70 degrees!
Eating on the outside patio felt heavenly.
Food and service were excellent as usual.
Will it help to deflect the wind tunnel effect of an occasional breeze? How about a solid see through panel (similar to the roof material) be placed on the two short ends of the oblong gazebo, with entrance/exit on the long side of the gazebo instead of the short ends?

The meals were delicious, and there was huge variety. The starters were the perfect size and DELICIOUS. We ordered more of them even after we finished the meal. While the menu is relatively small, everything was done really really well. The deserts were amazing. The little bakery on the side is a cute touch. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Our dinner was absolutely amazing. The service was phenomenal. We started with, and loved, the Johnny cakes, spring rolls, and grilled peaches. I’m vegan but my sister and mom are not so the restaurant made adjustments so we were all happy. Many menu items are “vegan possible” which was great. My entree was the summer vegetable curry. It was substantial and tasted like perfection. To top it off was the delicious vegan friendly dessert. I can’t wait to go back.

Excellent food and good service.
This was for eating outdoors on a really windy day. No plastic barriers on the prevailing wind direction.
That made the experience not as enjoyable as it could have been.
Not space indoors to move too.

I wanted to introduce my vegetarian-becoming granddaughter to a really special experience. Greens did not disappoint. It was wonderful to come back after so many months and my granddaughter loved it. We shared a number of starters, a main dish (the vegetarian curry) and the cardamom cake dessert. All we’re up to Green’s legendary quality and the service was great.

We chose to sit outside and our wait staff was very caring about moving the heat lamps closer to us. Unfortunately it was very windy and we had to put on our coats to sit outside even with the heat lamps. Had we known that the indoor seating was so wide open and the windows were open, we would have requested indoors; however the reservations were full so it was not possible to change our seating. We were very impressed about how attentive and caring our waiter was (tall guy with Russian-like accent. sorry I didn't get his name) and although cold when we finished, we enjoyed our meal.

First time back since the pandemic lockdown, and it was better than ever! We went for lunch and sat outside (vaccinated but still being careful). I had the peach salad, the babaganoush (sp?), and the Johnny Cakes with salad. My friend also had the peach salad, and had the eggplant sandwich. For dessert, I had the trifle and she had the chocolate mousse. Each dish was beautifully presented and delicious. Special shout-out to the perfect peaches. Our server was friendly, helpful, and efficient. Of course the ambience of Fort Mason and the walk we took along the water afterward only added to the whole experience. A really lovely dining experience in every way!

We had 5:30 reservation and were #2 in line when we arrived at 5:00 and requested a window table. The hostess seated the first twosome at 5:30 at table for 4 in middle along window. For some reason our waitress seated us at a table near the back wall. Although by the window one of us facing the wall. I objected but didn’t get anywhere. The hostess seated all the next customers at the better locations even though we had been second in line. That experience ruined the ambiance for me right from the start.
Food was fresh and good but $29 is a lot of money for a plate of vegetables. I know a lot of care & labor went into it and it did have unique flavor. Person I was with was less pleased with her entree as she paid a high price for a plate spaghetti noodles. We enjoyed splitting soup & bread which was excellent and affordable. We may return on special occasions but Greens is too pricey for frequent visits.

I always enjoy dining at Greens whether its brunch, lunch or dinner.
It has a great atmosphere and feels organic and healthy. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The food is always delicious and well presented. I have never had a bad experience there and will always be a loyal patron.

This is such a special setting. One of the best restaurant window views in SF. The menu seemed appealing/ interesting but only one dish was really delicious: The Green Goddess Humous...its a wonderful dish, truly amazing.
The other items were flawed (btw I'm a tough critic of food..);
the couscous with veggie stew was gorgeous and the ingredients were awesome, but it did not have a good flavor at all;
the cocoanut risotto cakes are a great idea, and crispy, and unusal: but the only cocoanut flavor was in the spicy sauce, no obvious cocoanut flavor in the risotto itself;
the peaches in the grilled peach salad were hard and sour; the amount of watercress with it was scant.
Its hard not to love this place because they really have innovative vegetarian and vegan dishes...but I do not love their cooking as much as their ideas!

For incredibly scrumptious vegetarian fare, imaginative fusion of styles, and artful blending of ingredients, Greens is a stellar choice. We had a creamy polenta at Saturday brunch that was the best I've ever had, and for dessert, the chocolate budino was dark, smooth and richly delicious. Our server was super helpful, friendly and personable, taking wonderful care of us all through the meal. Beautiful location, inside and out, with a great view of the Golden Gate.

From the host to the server to the busser, service was excellent. We felt welcomed with a very friendly reception, attentive service and excellent food. I had a pupusa filled with vegetables and topped with a fried egg. It was superb. Great place! We've been coming since the first week it opened in 1979. It's a huge favorite.

We would like more memo options back with options like wine food paring and desert menu.. We are hoping our beloved Greens Restuarant can fully regain its pre-pandemic level of quality food options.
