Fragrant, savory complex food which encompasses the full spectrum of tastes and textures. I'm an omnivore, but I didn't miss meat at all.

Service was amazing. I could compare the helpfulness and appreciation for the experience to a top tier restaurant. Unique options for a vegetarian. For vegetarians who usually only have a few options on the menu which usually include pasta and salad, this place knows how to come up with unique meals.

I had gone to Greens frequently a number of years ago but because of family obligations on the other side of town and the illness of the friends I used to go with, I had been unable to pay a visit. I was so happy to have a lovely and most delicious dinner last Sunday night and I will plan to pay a visit to Greens more often in the future.

I ate at Greens when the restaurant first opened and this was my second time. We were a group of friends getting together for a Sunday brunch. The view was beautiful and the food diverse and tasty. I would highly recommend it.

Not sure if it was because of our Open Floor reservation, but despite a crowd of people waiting for the restaurant to open, after we gave our name, we waited just a moment before being sat at the most beautiful window table looking out over the harbor and the sunset over the Golden Gate Bridge.

We went to Greens on vacation to celebrate an anniversary. Our waiter Natalia was very kind, and did not bother us too often, which I appreciate. I personally do not like when a waiter asks how you are doing too many times, it interrupts your meal. There were many waiters and helpers from the kitchen near if we ever needed anything. The food was great, we are both vegetarian and they had many options. The dessert was the best part. We had a vegan strawberry almond cake with blackberry sorbet. Probably our favorite food from our entire trip!
The view of the bay was amazing from almost any seat in the restaurant. Would highly recommend.

As plant-based vegans visiting San Francisco, we were thrilled to find this gem! The service was amazing (even with a packed restaurant) and the food incredible. We loved the swankier-than-usual ambiance as well, albeit a little noisy. I wish I could remember our server’s name-she was excellent!!! A must-visit, for sure!

Took some friends from out of town here hoping to impress them with the view and food, but wound up not having great service and got stuck in an uncomfortable small back room. Both were unusual since we had an early reservation and were the only ones in the restaurant when we arrived.

I was able to make a reservation about a week ahead for two friends and myself. We have lunch together once a year. We were seated in the "Alcove" which is such a perfect place to be together with close friends. It was quiet and felt really special. Our waitress was very friendly and accomadating. The food was absolutely delicious and we all loved our meals. I had the Fall Sampler: mmmmmmmm.

Can't wait to go again.

Green's is one of members of my Most Preferred Restaurants List (MPRL) because of the exceptional food, excellent service and ability to cater to both herbivores and carnivores. We celebrate special occasions here as well as gather with family residing here. No trip to San Francisco (we are from CT) is complete without a stop here.

Generally, tasty, flavorful food. Papardelle with mushrooms was probably the best of the four meals we had (the other three meals were the tomato and goat cheese sandwich (tasty but teeny, like an hors d’oeuvre), middle eastern plate (same) and eggs with spinach (Good but nothing special).) Moroccan lentil soup (enjoyed by all) was a hit, as was the sorbet trio. As always, the best part about Greens was the lovely room and brilliant view.

As usual the menu provides options for everyone! My husband is a carnivore and he still loves the food! We were a group of five and were able to order five separate items and two for the table plus a dessert then we all shared ... everyone loved everything! Greens feeds your spirit as well as your body. Service was friendly, quick and also let us relax ... still interested in our comfort even after we paid our bill but were not ready to leave. I just wish I lived closer so that it wasn't just special events that brings us here.

Greens is my favorite restaurant in San Francisco, unequaled for food, ambiance, view, service. I had an absolutely delicious pasta, and my friend had a gratin. We watched the sun set over the Golden Gate Bridge and then went to the Magic Theatre.

The view is wonderful and the service outstanding; the wait staff have actually been TRAINED properly. The food was beautiful to look and and very very good. The only reason I don't rave is because it was very good but not outstanding/unusual. I had the Poblano chili and my husband the wild mushroom ravioli. Yes, I'll return

It is a pleasure to eat watching the tide roll in over San Francisco Bay. The wait-staff was friendly, attentive, but not obtrusive. The wine was delicious. One appetizer -- the quinoa pancakes with savory dip -- was delicious, but the barley vegetable soup was rather bland. The pizza with summer squash and tomato was tasty but not special. The dessert -- now you're talking. A plum tart with vanilla ginger ice cream, delicious! It's a little pricey, but the sunset was worth it.

Two of our three entrees arrived on time. The third had been lost and arrived one hour later. That’s never happened anywhere before.

But the view outside was spectacular and the room is really lovely.

To sum up, beautiful location, lacking in service. We had to ask for the meal to be comp’ed.
