I've been to Greens 3x over the years and have always really appreciated the food. This time we went for brunch, and the menu was a little limited. My wife ordered an avocado and hummus sandwich. It was ok, but a little dry. I had a mushroom panzanella... Which seemed a little out of balance. The bread was in the... More

So very pleasantly surprised after not having eaten at Greens for too many years! Opened in the late 70's, Greens continues to lead when it comes to tasty local, organic, vegetarian food. Three friends and I chose four different Sunday brunch dishes and all were delicious, creative and more than satisfying. Portions are generous, desserts are enticing, and the ambiance... More

Fort Mason hasn't changed much in the last few decades. There are still the rows of warehouses, covered by metal awnings and surrounded by wooden decks. There are small businesses, a few shops, and Greens, a mainstay and a landmark San Francisco restaurant. When you step inside, you step into a part of San Francisco's past, with driftwood tables that... More

We went for lunch. The menu was extensive, the staff helpful but not intrusive. The decor is very calming and creates a good atmosphere for relaxed dining. The view out over the harbour is wonderful. We were old friends catching up and stayed until closing but were not made to feel unwelcome for lingering.

The location is special with a lovely water view . Having eaten at greens over the last tens years, things have changed slowly but always beckoning my return until now . Four of us ate lunch, the spring roll felt like one you might pick up at a supermarket. A veggie chilly felt like it had been hanging around for... More

The food here was delicious. Neither my husband nor I is a vegetarian but we were both fully satisfied and delighted with our meals. The location is a bit odd, especially for dinner. After dark, the whole Fort Mason Center feels like a warehouse district where everyone has gone home for the night. The lack of windows on the entrance... More

We have loved this place for years, even though we only get there so often. Well, it's been over a year since, and it still is special in many ways, but I am sorry to say they seem to be both slipping and taking for granted/advantage of the customer, which is not a good combination for a restaurant. I know,... More

Oh, how I used to love this place. Having once lived just a stone's throw away, returning started out to be nostalgic, but I quickly lost that loving feeling. It was a birthday, thus I made window reservations well in advance. I was told upon arriving that it would be a wait of at least an hour for a window.... More

Greens is definitely the place to go if you want a gourmet vegetarian meal with a killer view of the bay and the Golden Gate Bridge! The menue is extremely creative and the service is excellent. The only challenge, is that this is really NOT a place for most kids (unless they appreciate fine food). This place is popular, so... More

Had a lovely lunch here. Great view and the food was delicious. If feel like it rocked 20 years ago however it still has loads of charm. The Great food, view and service made it a lovely experience.
