The service sometimes these day is the only important thing when we eat out. Here at greens from entrance to exit was impeccable. I would add an note of excellence to Vanessa our waiter that was extra attentive to our needs. Not too much to bother our diner not too little let us hanging without the waiters attention.

I have had lunch and dinner here over the last 18 years (I live in Los Angeles). I have NEVER ever once been disappointed and have always been delighted by their menu and food. I absolutely love this restaurant! I can't wait til the next time I come up to San Francisco so we can eat here again. Fabulous! Such good energy - vibes!

Great setting overlooking San Francisco Bay and Golden Gate Bridge. Plenty of parking, and Ft. Mason area nice to walk around the piers. Vegetarian cuisine was excellent, innovative, fairly priced. Extensive wine list. Service professional and enthusiastic. Have been many many times and always look forward to the next.

My husband and I have been to Green’s many times, but we were never stuck in the back room where several large parties were incredibly loud. Service wasn’t as good back there either. Felt like we were an afterthought even though we had made reservations.

Unlike the previous few times we've gone to Greens the menu was uninspiring. Pizza, pasta as two of the few options were a disappointment to us.

I had requested for a candle light as a surprise for my sisters silver anniversary. I was not happy that even after multiple confirmations Greens did not have the table ready for the same. Otherwise they enjoyed the service. Thank you for the wonderful ambience and great food.

I have always loved Greens. I am not a vegetarian, but I enjoy vegetables, and Greens has always had very special offerings. However, since Greens reopened after its terrible fire, its menu has changed....and not for the better. I find that garlic is much more prominent in dishes. Whereas its previous spring menu featured a delightful asparagus pizza, it is now offered with green garlic and goat cheese and red pepper flakes which is just too much...overwhelming the delicate asparagus flavor. They made mine without those items, but I should have had them leave off the roasted onions as well. Also, the spring pasta used to be with a lemon cream sauce and had fava beans, asparagus and sweet peas. Now the pasta is a Meyer lemon pasta with mint pesto (also with garlic). Plus Greens does not now offer its Seasonal Sampler Plate which was always my favorite. So I was very disappointed. Plus there was a large (20 people or so) group being seated as we arrived so there was a long wait until the hostess helped everyone with the their coats, their menus, etc. There were other wait persons available, but only the hostess was allowed to seat guests....a problem that is easily fixed. Will still return...hoping for better menu offerings next time. Still love the wait staff!!

The food at Greens is always exceptional-fresh organic produce, delicious sauces, and lovely presentation. I have been choosing their curry options for over 30 years, but the butternut squash curry I had on 5/14 was the best I've ever had. The desserts are always creative and artfully present. It is our favorite restaurant. Views of the Golden Gate Bridge are an extra benefit.

The food was lovely but not much to choose from and very small portions. The main not much bigger then the entree. Ordering drinks, it seemed to take an age to come out and each time we ordered drinks we had to ask when it was coming. Food service was fine. Lovely views.

We were a bit disappointed when we had dinner on Mother's day. The place was so busy that we were seated in a corner of an extra room with little to no view of the bay—in fact, it was the only corner without a window. The service was nice, though, but everything took a little longer and our food came lukewarm and not at the same time. Three of our party stared hungry on the plates of the others who themselves knew their food would become even colder now. The pizza was soggy in the middle and just not what you'd expect from a high priced restaurant.

We are vegan and found some options on the menu, which we enjoyed. However, most items on the menu are vegetarian. The view to the marina is very open (the entire west wall over-looking the marina is mostly windows), the room decor is rustic (the was a warehouse or something like that) but tastefully enhanced with paint and furnishings (e.g., several of the tables are creatively designed seats/tables mad out of large tree trunks, and a piece of art made out of a large tree-stump), and the staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Usually I’m a big fan but when I went on Sunday, 5/5, it took 10 minutes and a request to get water, let alone a server. Our server was not apologetic or very friendly. Pinnacle eggs were amazing, but the other dish we ordered was dry and pretty tasteless. So disappointed, given my prior experiences and the fact that this restaurant is not cheap.

we love Greens. The food is absolutely amazing: delicious, creative, innovative, beautifully presented. We enjoyed every moment of our eating experience. We did have to wait at least 30 minutes between our soup and main course which was not ideal. The views out the window are stunning. We were very pleasantly surprised with two glasses of wine in honor of our anniversary: a total surprise; a gift of the restaurant. We are going back in June for my birthday and I left resolving to eat there much more often. It's worth the wait! And we know from years of experience that the take out food is also marvelous.

The first time I crafted a really nice review, then went looking for photos and when I returned Open Table had reverted back to the beginning. The second time, I tried to add photos and it reverted back to the beginning. So, just imagine a really nice review with amazing food photos. Maybe I'll try this again on Yelp or some app that will actually take my review and photos instead of deleting them.
