    We had a great birthday dinner celebration! The food was great and Gillian was amazing! We loved everything we ate and the turmeric spritz was terrific! So was the honey lemon at the end of a cold night! The Brussels sprout pizza exceeded expectations and we will definitely be back soon.

    Post holiday get-together with family at my favorite restaurant. Everyone enjoyed their dining experience on an amazingly gorgeous SF afternoon. We had a window seating with a perfect view of the bay and bridge. Service was excellent and the meals never disappoint.

    Visited Green's >20 times over last 15 years, and were very happy in the past. Since ~2021, the character, quality and presentation of the food deteriorated -- and our dinner yesterday was the culmination of that downwards trend: Dishes lost all of their previously celebrated authenticity, and migrated towards big-portions-low-quality food. Very little flavor and sophistication. Felt like being at AppleBee's. We left up to 50% of each of the dishes ordered - something that never, ever happened before. Presentation was poor. Service was unsophisticated and inattentive. Price remained at ~$50 per person (without even having wine). With regrets, this was our last visit to Green's.

    Waiter forgot soup… came after we reminded and finished meal. Very uninterested service. Drinks took forever… served after we received the entire. Nice guy… just seemed like he was done with the day or dazed from it all. Just not a welcoming place from the very beginning.

    Loved our brunch at Greens! Only 'complaint' is that when we made reservations in advance, we were not told that we would eat outside. It was a beautiful day but we missed the serene ambiance inside Greens.

    We were not seated until our entire party arrived. Parking was a nightmare. Waitress was helpful in explaining details about some of the menu items but was curt and not friendly. Food arrived quickly but it was no big shakes. For the prices, distance we had to travel it was not worth it. Taste was so so. Nothing was amazing. We got a soup - which tasted like standard minestrone, grilled cheese sandwich with a heap of lettuce head as a side salad (very uninspiring). Pupusa's description was amazing taste was just ok. French toast didn't have a dollop of whipped cream some fruits nothing. It was 2 french toast with a little maple syrup. Finally pinnacle scramble just looked like someone put a bunch of eggs, beans and potatoes again sad and uninspiring. Corn bread - even cord bread made from grocery store tasted better. All in all $160 worth breakfast but nothing to write home about. We will not be going back anytime soon...

    The food, as always, was incredible at Greens. The ambiance in the outdoor seating area could be improved, though is was warm enough with heaters. Also, it is more like a tent than an outdoor patio, so it has less ventilation than one might expect. I sat outside because I'm not comfortable with indoor dining, especially as case numbers of Covid, flu and RSV are going up. Most of the servers remained unmasked, which made me uncomfortable given that the air flow was hindered by the tent-like walls. On the menu they list gluten free possible dishes. When I opted to have the gluten free option on my entree, I wasn't informed that there would be a $6 charge for the gluten free bread. That was a surprise when the bill came.

    We have been there before and always liked it (for dinner), but this time tried brunch and were a bit disappointed. Vegan options almost non-existing (weird for a vegetarian restaurant) and the coffee had a sour taste - were told that’s just how it is. On the end paid almost 100$ for a simple breakfast for 2 ppl. Will not go again. Service was friendly.

    Greens continue to deliver an excellent overall vegetarian dining experience. It was one the first nationally recognized vegetarian restaurants in the US and still hasn't lost its touch. Its setting in Fort Mason is great and easy to get too. The small dishes and appetizers really deliver, the main courses are good, but a little more hit and miss. I'm not a vegetarian, but I still enjoyed eating at Greens. I hadn't been there in a long time and wanted to take a good friend that is a vegetarian there. They very much enjoyed all their dishes.

    Excited to return to Greens after a long hiatus. The host staff were kind and accommodating. The atmosphere is on the quiet side, which is good if you want to have a conversation. We tried several dishes from the small plates, first and second courses. Overall the food was good. However, we did send one dish back because it was burnt black. Our server tried to convince us that was the way it was supposed to be, but we knew it was not. Service was, unfortunately, the least favorite part of the experience. Our server struggled with timing and pressured our group to order from the moment we sat down, and menus were placed before us. Throughout the meal, our server kept trying to pull plates at inopportune times, which we were still eating from them. The only time they were not around were the times we needed them. They never checked after the food was dropped but much later. In the end, when eating our desserts, our server kept trying to clear the entire table and coming over every two minutes to interrupt our conversation. They forgot our dessert wine, brought it over late, then dared to try to give us a plastic TO GO CUP for the dessert wine. With the meal being close to $400, the server's final act of the to-go cup for the late wine was appalling.

    Greens is one of the gems in San Francisco's crown of great restaurants. Its extensive menu includes many creative, tempting items. Food quality is outstanding (if you're at Greens for brunch, order the chocolate babka, it's among the best I've ever had. Oh, and stop quibbling about calories, everyone knows everything you eat from someone else's plate has no calories). Service is professional, attentive, and friendly. The view of the boats at the adjacent dock, the Bay, and the GG Bridge are magnificent. The only negative during our visit was the tea -- not the tea itself, but the doll-size teapot that's served. It is absolutely ridiculous, and needs to be replace with teapots better suited to actual adults. Greens deserves all the accolades it recives. We eagerly look forward to our next visit.

    All was good but I expected the Larb to be a bit spicier Thai style. It was a Greens interpretation of thai dish. Nice of restaurant to bring ice cream birthday treat pumpkin ice cream to die for. The pizza crust was crispy and pillowy at the same time. Love pizza with light crusts. Sat outside to avoid COVID

    Food and service very very good. Two excellent soups - not the norm for most restaurants. Superb pizza. Cool evening. Front door wide open. We were nearby. Chilly. Overhead lighting good level when we arrived allowing nice viewing of sunset. Five minutes later were turned up to bright. Mentioned to server. They were turned down slightly but not as before. Bright overhead lights aren’t conducive to relaxed dining.
