Absolutely delish! The cinnamon apple sourdough pancakes were to die for! And I can’t say enough about the mimosas. Loved everything will be back soon!

Our server was very kind, but perhaps a little too formal. He didn’t ask us any questions about our visit or dining preferences that would help create an optimal experience and he checked in very infrequently. I felt like I had to flag him down to get his attention. We weren’t provided with napkins at our place settings when seated, I had to request them from another passing server. We also ordered the side of carrots but they brought us Brussels sprouts. Our server assured us that we could enjoy them and put in the order for carrots at no additional cost, which was appreciated. Overall, the food was fabulous. I would return but hope for a smoother service!

Greens has been dear to my heart since 1988 so it’s difficult for me to write anything negative. However, our experience wasn’t up to par. Our server was lovely - friendly, great attitude, knowledgeable —but either she or the kitchen was glacially slow. Also the atmosphere has really changed from light, airy and inspiring to sort of dreary and serious due to the dark gray mid century modern chairs throughout. We booked weeks in advance but were given a cramped table in the corner behind the sculpture. Sadly disappointed in my old friend.

Greens is still crushing it after so many years. All the food was first rate, and service was excellent. A real pleasure.

We Three were seated at a lovely table and the waitress was helpful and pleasant. The atmosphere is terrific and the noise level was low and fine. Unfortunately, The food was not as good as I had hoped.
I ordered only scrambled eggs which were overdone. My friend ordered the eggs with spinach and feta which was good. Her husband ordered the pancakes which were too doughy and not vert special.. Desserts were apple crisp and cheesecake. The cheesecake was good, the apple crisp was too, too sweet. I did get very sick a few hours after the meal but I am not sure the meal was to blame.
I do go to Green’s regularly and sometimes the food is better than other times. It is not uniformly good.

A tasteful, friendly vegetarian spot that might as well be vegan. Most of the menu items can be made vegan, so no one goes hungry.

Food is excellent. Even my meat eating friend was happy with his meal and commented that it was a very satisfying meal, even with no meat! And my friend who is challenged with hearing in restaurants could hear our conversation easily.

Best time on our anniversary with the view of Golden Gate to top off!! The house made pasta delicious as well as hummus appetizer. Our server was very attentive and gave us enough time to enjoy the view and food. Did not feel rushed. Surprised us with champagne and a mini dessert too.

Greens restaurant is stunning with amazing food to compliment. We started with the local cheese plate which was tasty with the cherry mostarda. For dinner we shared the rigatoni with mushrooms and the broccoli and cheddar pizza with some crispy potatoes to round out the meal. In 10 years of being vegetarian this was one of the most memorable meals I’ve enjoyed dining out anywhere. The ambiance was cozy and approachable making it a perfect date night spot for our weekend getaway in San Fran. I would definitely return and recommend to anyone in the area.

Greens is always great, but this time we were asked if we wanted the private room for our party of six. Very nice to have a little quieter spot for conversation.

Food was unremarkable. I've had better at most run of the mill veg restaurants. Server was very unpleasant and we (and several other parties) had to wait 20+ minutes after our reservation time to be seated. Restaurant was kind of dingy and very cold (everyone had their jackets on). Not impressed at all.

The entire experience was wonderful. The host Min took care of us as soon as we walked in. She was the friendliest host we have ever been encountered. It was a great start. I would come back to this restaurant just to see her.

The food was amazing.

Our server Karina was wonderful. She was friendly efficient and gave wonderful recommendations.

We will be going back again soon to enjoy the wonderful food and service.

It’s been awhile since we’ve been here. The restaurant hasn’t changed much; the restaurant has the same great ambiance. For starters, we order the fresh spring rolls and the potato cakes which were both delicious. For our mains, we shared the broccoli pizza, rigatoni and the glass noodles. We couldn’t eat the pizza as it was too salty. The rigatoni was delicious but also a little salty. The best dish was the glass noodles which came with a steamed bun (slightly doughy from being undercooked). We ordered three desserts which turned out to be too much and we were quickly over-sugared. We took our daughter here for her birthday because she is exploring vegetarian cuisine. She was not impressed. I don’t know if we would return here; there are so many vegetarian options now. It’s not as good as I remember.

We were disappointed in the service at Greens. Firstly we asked for window table and agreed to wait. But when they came to seat us, while there was a window table for 4 they wouldn't give it to us (we were a party of 3 adults).
Instead we were sat against the wall and next to the kitchen door. I didn't want to make a fuss in front of others...so we took it.
Our server was rushed and kept looking at her other tables while we were interacting with her.
Food was great, service not so much

One does not always think of a vegetarian restaurant as a go to place for delicious food, well Greens will change your mind. Had an extraordinary lunch with friends while visiting the FOG exhibit. The building has amazing views and the restaurant houses an exquisite sculpture by J.B. Blunk. Do not deny yourself any of these pleasures while dining at one of the finest restaurants in San Francisco. Y. Goldfine

Three of us enjoyed the opportunity to share all vegetarian dishes. This is, hands down, the best vegetarian restaurant in the bay area.
