My birthday dinner was delightful - delicious appetizer (asparagus & polenta), yummy entrees (lemon fettucine & chard/ricotta filo) and delightful dessert (butterscotch pot de creme) with a beautiful sunset view! Thank you!

We came here for our anniversary dinner while visiting San Francisco and the food was divine. Fresh, inventive and tasty.
Our server was to the point and very professional - no chitchat here - but overall very attentive. He brought us champagne on the house when he found out it was a special day for us.
The view of the marina and the bridge is really lovely, and we watched the sun go down as we drank some refreshing and unique cocktails.
While their menu is small and a little on the pricier side, they do what they do very well. We had an excellent visit overall!

I eat meat. All the time. Most meals without meat leave me thinking “this needs meat.” The food at Greens was not that way. It was excellent and very filling. It was a great end to the day.

Not sure if the chef has changed but the food was below average - cold and sloppy in presentation. The service was ok though our server was great. We could see they were short staffed for a Sunday brunch and it took long to place our orders, get the check and pay. As usual the view was great and managed to get a table by the window.

Greens is such a special and unique place, so when an out-of-town friend who is a vegetarian came to visit, I knew she would appreciate it. And she did, exclaiming over the flavors and closing her eyes as she savored the food.

We shared an order of banana bread, and an order of hummus with tomato jam and olives.

The banana bread was good but not outstanding, but the hummus was wonderful. My friend declared it the best she ever had.

She had the Pinnacles Scramble and loved it.

I had the Greens Hash With Rolling Oaks Poached Eggs. First of all, the word "eggs" implies more than one, but there was only one. The serving on my plate was paltry compared to hers, and the flavors did not thrill me. As a result, I did not finish it, and was left feeling hungry. The levain bread was not crisp or hot or appealing, so I did not eat those either.

I had the Butterscotch Pot de Creme for dessert, and it was excellent. I would like to have another one right now.

She had the sorbets and also declared them excellent.

I gave it four stars because of my disappointment with the food. I gave the service five stars because it was excellent, although the people at the host station appeared confused. The noise level was too loud to have a good conversation. This app limits me to "energetic" as the loudest, but it was not energetic, just loud. The acoustics in that space are not conducive to "cozy," or "quiet conversation."

I will probably return because it was the first disappointing meal I have had at Greens, so I am willing to try again.

We came to Greens for my wife's birthday. I noted that on the reservation which I would normally do. Most restaurants just ignore that note, but both the greeter and the server wished her a warm happy birthday which set a nice tone.

We arrived early, but they had a lovely table for us near the window. The food, as usual was outstanding. My wife and I both had the asparagus salad and the Indian Thali. Flavorful, yummy dishes.
The wine was excellent. Chloe, who took our orders, was present and mindful.

I came here after a long hike and was in town for a conference and wanted a healthy dining option! Greens definitely delivered! Service was attentive but not annoying. Max was really nice and even pulled the blinds down when he noticed I was wincing from the bright sunshine. I ordered the Indian Thali which was excellent and wish I had ordered two!! The mango and tamarind chutneys were perfection and incredibly scrumptious! The butternut and sweet potato gratin was also incredibly delicious as well! Ambiance is lovely and clientele is well behaved and professional. No children thank goodness.
Highly recommend for any occasion! It was a little hard to find and hidden all the way back in the marina in a building with a terrible plain exterior but interior is very nice.

I’m sorry to say I would not recommend Greens. We were looking forward to revisiting a favorite place, but it was an awful experience and disappointing food. The chairs were old and cushions sunken into the frame, the rug was dirty, service rushed and people running by our table back and forth. Seemed understaffed. The food, majorly uninspired which was the most disappointing part. Bland salad, mushy pasta, no flavor... sorry to say this.

I love to sit on the banquette near the north and of the restaurant, and allow the "out of towners" to sit looking out at the water. We were fortunate that our dinner went through sunset- when the warm glow of the setting sun was an added element to the excellent food and wine.

As a vegetarian how wonderful to have every menu option to choose from, for a change! Such a great variety of ingredients and flavors, all beautifully presented. A table for two by the window, watching the sun set behind the golden gate, enjoying imaginative and delicious food served by attentive staff. Highly recommended. And the flour less chocolate torte was magnificent!

Greens is one of my favourite restaurants and I am never disappointed whenever I visit which alas is not very often since I am not a frequent visitor to San Francisco. As vegetarian I love the creative cuisine. And, the setting isn't bad either!

Terrific vegetarian choices with very healthy ingredients. Service was slower than we would have preferred but not a deal breaker. Just go with the intent of having a delightful unrushed meal in a terrific venue.

Greens is a gem. It inspires one to slow down and savor wonderful food, good conversation, and the nourishment of a space absent of blaring music or an over-the-bar TV droning the news. Highly recommended.

I have enjoyed many meals over the years at Greens. At a recent dinner to celebrate a birthday, our party of 6 was seated in the back room, which is separated from the main dining area. The room does have a large window looking out onto the bay. However, the room is cavernous, with a high ceiling, hard surfaces, and bare walls. As the room filled, the noise level was extremely high, making conversation nearly impossible. In the future, I would decline to be seated in that room.

We had reservations for 5 at 2pm on Easter Sunday. I specifically booked Greens because my son's girlfriend and my daughter are both vegetarians. The restaurant overbooked the larger tables so we were asked to wait and wait...Finally after half an hour our table was ready. Everyone makes mistakes but what made this experience positive was that the hostess not only apologized but offered our first round of drinks and desserts on the house. The vegetarian choices were outstanding and everything was excellent, especially the 5 desserts! After giving up chocolate for lent, it was quite a treat to have a taste of ALL 5 desserts. Of course the views are unmatched. And while the service was a bit slow due to the Easter crush, everyone was pleasant and making an effort to do their best.

Had to wait 25 minutes to be seated. Obviously over-booked. But a busy day. Server was nice but distracted. Forgot the drinks. Also promised free desserts for having to wait so long, but was billed for them. But really great food and wonderful view. Have been before and will return when it is not a holiday.

Wonderful experience. We had a great service. The space is stunning with a beautiful view over the bay and the GG Bridge. The food, of course, was truly very good and the meat eaters amongst us did not miss the meat. The wine list is also very well curated. In good SF style, the place manages to remain casual while being sophisticated.

This is the place to go to if you want to watch a sunset view of the Golden Gate Bridge. Is not a place to come to for a meal with friends after a sunset.

Showed up on time, but still have to wait 25 minutes for a table. It was a bit strange given my reservation was at 8:45.

Host just did not know what to do with us. Then, kept repeatedly asking for my name, which meant that they never checked to me and to begin with.

Food was over salted. And, for what you get, it is ridiculously overpriced

Service was nonexistent and with the rough attitude. Waiter took umbrage to the fact that I wasn’t drinking… He showed it visibly on his face.

Noise levels are way too loud at that restaurant. Made worse by the fact that they had a wedding party in the back room, blasting music at volume 11.

Tried once. Would have to be dragged back there again.

We are big fan's of Green's and go here for all our special occasions. I downgraded just a little this time, because as some other commenters said, it's not quite as special as it was. The food is good, but not quite as amazing as it used to be. This time what left me disappointed was when our first courses came out we still hadn't received our table bread and nuts (which I remember as frequently being olives in the past), and we always love their bread and whatever they give us with it. All the other tables had it, as you would expect, and when I asked about it after our first courses were being cleared, the response was along the lines of, "oh, did you want some?" I really hate complaining or nitpicking about people just trying to do their jobs, we all have days where we don't quite have it together or things aren't coming together the way they should, but that kind of response just made the evening not quite as special as it usually is there - I would have expected a quick "sorry, that should have made it out here" kind of response. First World problems, but when you spend a few hundred dollars on dinner you want it to be special.

The food was delicious, but the service was sub par. I had to ask twice to get a refill in my water glass, on two different occasions in the meal. The cheese plate was delicious, and we had an excellent bottle of wine. I highly recommend the Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato Gratin. The last disappointment of the evening was when after informing on my reservation that it was my partners birthday we ordered 2 desserts and did not get a candle(we saw other tables with one). It's a little thing, but there was just no acknowledgement of the occasion at all. All in all, I probably wouldn't come back. The food was delicious, but the service was just not good at all.

Great foods, service and location. Wait staff was very informative, friendly and helpful without being overing. One of our party was vegan and she accommodated her needs in almost every items on the menu. We asked to have our orders served as family style and she was most gracious to our request. Every order was served in timely manner and we were never felt hurried. If I can eat like this all the time, I don's think I would miss eating meats much. Highly recommended.
