Greens Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Finally made the pilgrimage to Greens. It was worth the trip. lovely starters included salad with winter fruits: persimmon, pomegranatand pear with a touch of blue cheese. beets hummus lentils and romesco with pita satisfied. Mushroom filo and potato gratin were quite deliious. Our only disappointment was the veggy brochette which was topped with a too sharp chimchurri that was also too finely chopped. Tofu was nice but the rest just did not come together. I would avoid.
My expectations were high based on reviews and website. Also the menu - dishes sounded delicious and exciting but when they came they were quite ordinary. I had the grilled cheese. Sounded special, but felt like quite an ordinary cheese sandwich and a side salad. Food was good, but not up to the expectation. Also, overpriced for what it was. Tables were close together, so felt quite hectic.
Brunch at Greens last Sunday was a total delight ! I had been meaning to try it out for YEARS, and finally thought of it while we were attending the Fog Art Fair. We were seated on the window overlooking the harbor, so had a stellar view. Our waitress was exceedingly nice, as were the others helping her during a busy time . Food was absolutely delicious, served in creative bowls. It could not have been a more wonderful time !
We enjoyed a really nice brunch here on Saturday. The food was excellent and our cocktails were perfectly made. Our only issue with this restaurant is that there are what seem to be fewer and fewer options for vegans. As much as we love going here, I would hate to be force to stop supporting this restaurant. Hopefully things can improve a bit menu wise or at least the ability to modify a dish to become vegan. On this current brunch menu, our server only indicated one or two items that could be made vegan. Kind of disappointing. We were still able to have a great meal this time but with fewer options.
The waiters were aggressive in putting our main course on the table before we were ever finished with appetizers. It was quite aggressive and I’ve never seen anything like it. I’m only giving them the benefit of the doubt since I’ve been there before and had a gr at time.
We had a reservation for 1pm and arrived at 12:55 but were not seated until 1:30pm. After lunch the wait staff were apologetic and brought us desserts to make up for that. This was a nice gesture but we would have preferred better feedback while we waited and perhaps some appetizers while we waited instead. Just suggesting this idea for future similar situations. I will return, of course, their food is outstanding.
Absolutely wonderful! As many times as I have been back over the years, the experience is always uplifting! The view, ambiance, service, the menu and incredibly talented chef (Annie Somerville), - all combine to make each return visit a glorious occasion!! Truly a San Francisco gem!
This was a first date type night and I must say it turned out to be a total winner! The waiter Ron was a great guy. The peanut sauce spring roll appetizer was delicious. The wine was excellent and the green curry was the best!!! Our first date will be remembered for a long time to come because of this great experience at Greens. Thank you!
The food was very good. I can not say the same for the service. Per our receipt, Ron was our server. Arrogant and unprofessional are two words that can best describe him. He gave the impression that we were not worthy of his time. Couldn't be bothered to tell us they offer bread. We were served a desert that was improperly made. When we asked about it, he was certain we were wrong. And then commented "Oh Well." The hostess had a similar disinterested attitude.
The food at Greens is interesting and worth a visit. Too bad their staff can't also measure up.
Sadly, I would not recommend Greens anymore. The food was average, and the price way high. The chairs were super uncomfortable (really need to upgrade here) and the server forgot to put a candle in the desert for the birthday girl. What can I say? We used to love this restaurant, but they are really off their game.
My husband and I both love this restaurant and make a point of going here when we're in San Francisco. It's vegetarian with many vegan options so I love it because I'm vegan. My husband is not and will eat anything,but he loves this restaurant as much as I do.
The food is absolutely amazing! Beautifully prepared, full of flavor and a plentiful variety. Perfect in every possible way.
The service is also wonderful with a very professional and caring staff.
The view of the Golden Gate Bridge, the marina, the bay and the beautiful sunsets are unbeatable.
If I could eat here every day it would be heaven for me!
Our dinner at Greens was superb. I wish I could remember our waiters name, but he was a gem, professional but very friendly. The food was beyond what I had hoped. We are from Santa Rosa and come to the city often, but don’t usually eat at the higher end restaurants. But we will be back. Each course was absolutely delicious, timed perfectly, and the portions were substantial. We were both so very impressed with the entire experience - we are already planning a return visit. Thank you for the very special experience!
(I had never had a Manhattan before and it was amazing. I’ll return just for that!)
It was an amazing experience to celebrate my wife’s birthday. Beautiful view of the marina , bay and ducks along with sumptuous vegetarian food makes the best lunch date. We were hoping to get the lunch menu, but they were only serving the brunch menu. Nevertheless , it was delicious food. Highly recommended for vegetarian food !
If you are a veg/vegan, you probably already know Greens should be on your bucket list. I’ve been wanting to go for a number of years but living in Seattle means you don’t just get in the car and drive to it. So when my wife and I decided to spend some vacation time between Christmas and New Years in SF, we put Greens on our list of “must dos.”
For the most part, it didn’t disappoint. The atmosphere is energetic and open—the large and airy dining area gives full visibility to all other patrons. If you want a quiet, more romantic experience, you’re advised to look elsewhere. We went at night and were seated at a table in the middle of the dining room but we still had a nice view of the night-lit Golden Gate Bridge. In the daylight or at sunset, this view would be absolutely beautiful!
The food, from the warmed spicy almonds served to all (along with good though cold whole wheat bread), through to the main entree was as expected. My wife had the Pappardelle pasta and I had the wild mushroom and spinach filo. Both were excellent!
The only two drawbacks were the service and the dessert. This meal took us two hours to complete—even though the house wasn’t quite full at our reserved hour (of 6:30!); it was as if we were almost forgotten at times. It didn’t appear like this was happening to other patrons as more than a couple other parties got seated, served, and left all while we were still at our table (you know how sometimes you think they “served” your food to others while you were waiting? The wait felt like that!). Our waitress did apologize even though we didn’t complain. We were just trying to enjoy the experience.
The dessert of banana chocolate cake with coconut ice cream was disappointing. Served cold and dry (it took almost 20 minutes to get the dessert—we drank both our after dinner lattes while we waited), it was not of the quality you’d expect from Greens.
This is not a cheap night out so come with your plastic—but we did enjoy ourselves.
