Good Vegetarian Options
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.

We dined at Greens, one of our longtime favorite restaurants, only 3 days after CA allowed indoor dining, so we understand that getting back after 15 months is very difficult, and it takes time to train all staff both in front of the house and in the kitchen. As always, the view over the bay to the Marin headlands and the Golden Gate bridge is magnificent, particularly just after sunset, when my husband and I were there to celebrate our anniversary. The tables were spaced widely apart, which made the restaurant delightfully peaceful, a change from the very busy days of yore; it was easy to talk quietly instead of being in someone else's buzz. The downside is that service was not up to its former standard, which is understandable, and the menu limited, also understandable. The food was disappointing. I was anticipating a more limited menu, but I was hoping what was on offer would still be well conceived and well executed. Three of the 4 main courses offered were quite spicy (alas, something I can't have) and the 4th was so rich that I found it challenging, even though the vegetables were good. The greatest part of it was the heavy anchor of mashed potatoes. My first course was a salad of mixed lettuces with sugar snaps, snow peas, the core of a lettuce -- roughly 3.5" long by 1" wide -- was left whole and difficult to cut while sliding in dressing. I think all this has to do with this reopening after 15 months, finding and training staff, refining both technique and service. I understand. It was nevertheless disappointing, and the portion I ate -- I arrived hungry -- was overrich and made me uncomfortable . How happily I remember the bright flavors Greens once offered. I hope that returns in the coming months.

The view is magnificent.

Everything was great - food, service, window table. We are two older women. I was treating my friend for her bday.
I paid with a $50 debit/gift card and the balance with my credit card. When waitress returned card she said there was $2.35 on gift card???? I left a generous tip on credit card.
As we were leaving, we thanked everyone and I told them that I had been there many times before.
When we got to the door a man, the manager ???, came after us. In a loud voice, he said I owed $2.35. I said we had a bus to catch (to Marin.). He kept insisting. I started going through my purse for the receipts. Finally he said we could go because we had a bus to catch.
Looked at receipts at home,Turns out they divided bill between the 2 cards. (SAME NAME ON BOTH CARDS!) with a $2.35 balance on gift card. Their mistake.
I was embarrassed and it put a damper on whole experience. VERY CLASSY GUYS - for $2. My bill was over $120 with tip. Was a favorite but don’t know if I will return.

Nikolas was an amazing waiter! He took care of us throughout the night even though we were there after close. All his recommendations were spot on, including going to the overlook at night to see the Golden Gate Bridge.
The food was delicious, we had two individuals who would never on their own go to a vegetarian restaurant but said they not only thoroughly enjoyed the food, it was the best food they had in a long time.
The combination between the delicious food and Nikolas made our night and our trip to San Fran

The food and view were fantastic. Our server disappeared after dropping our entrees, never checked in again until well after the busser had cleared our plates. Unusual for Greens. Other than that, it was superb and we'll continue to dine there.

We were a party of 5 celebrating a special occasion for lunch at Greens (we had come with our friends who got married a few hours ago). I can't decide what was the better part of our afternoon there - the delicious food or the super amazing staff there.

The restaurant staff were super kind, they set us up with an amazing table and even entertained our request to do a little custom celebration by adding their own flair to it. The food itself is mouthwateringly good - some great vegan options. The green curry in the menu was special and I loved their twist to Johnny Cakes with the tomatoes and avocado. The views from the restaurant are spectacular and there is easy (free I believe) parking available in the lot right outside.

Overall, it was an all star experience and I'm glad we chose to come here for a special day.

This was my friend and my first indoor dining experience since the pandemic restrictions were lifted in San Francisco.
We specifically chose Greens because we have had so many memorable meals there and this was no exception.
Our servers, Cara and Kristen were quite warm, welcoming, and treated us royally.
our meals were delicious and we were glad we left room for dessert because the chocolate malted milk mousse cake was out of this world!

I go to Greens every year for my birthday. They’re one of the few vegetarian restaurants in the Bay Area with great ambiance. It’s such a treat having more than a couple items to choose from on a menu! All of their dishes are delicious and artfully plated.

Greens has lost it’s soul. Too many chief changes. The presentation was sloppy. The menu was greatly reduced.
The food-pea shoots & other greens were pulled from the ground. Steamed & thrown onto the plate.
So sad

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.
