Couldn't be better!

We are not vegetarians, but we're not big meat-eaters, either. Even though we've recently moved to the Bay area, Greens never came to the top of our list until a vegetarian guest from out-of-town came to visit. I am so sorry we waited! From the view over the marina to the attentive and friendly... read more

Went for lunch and had the wild mushroom and grilled cheese sandwich, yum! The chocolate torte was very light and creamy. Beautiful view of the marina and Golden Gate Bridge. Plenty of parking which is a plus in San Francisco.

The Greens Restaurant is, just about, every good thing you heard or read: great fresh food, creative vegetarian menu, exceptional presentation, fantastic view, very helpful and friendly staff, and you end up knowing you have eaten at a renowned San Francisco restaurant. However, and a big however, is that parking can become a horrible nightmare. It would be better to... More

Single Brochette Dinner - so so. Red Curry - again - so so. Find another place to eat. I must say the views of the bay and the Golden Gate Bridge are spectacular, but on a dark winter evening you will not see much.

An all vegetarian menu, high end restaurant, in San Francisco ! And a menu that is truly a connosseur's delight. Innovative dishes - amazingly tasteful. And you are at the water's edge, looking out on the Golden Gate Bridge. What better way to spend a lazy afternoon at lunch !

The price point of Greens is what you'd expect for a vegetarian eatery in SFO. It's pricey and worth it. I have been to Greens lots during the last 20 years and have never had a bad experience. Great food, and good service.

I've been in this venue 15 years ago and it was so amazing!!!! Now, january 2016, I went there with plenty of expectations wishing to exceed the previous experience. But unfortunately no! Besides it was very expensive in comparisson to other amazing restaurants in San Francisco, (regarding amounts, flavour, dishes). The green salad that come in one of the dishes... More

My husband and I went to Greens, a renowned vegetarian restaurant in Ft. Mason, for a late lunch (2:30) on a Thursday. Seated by the tall windows, we had a lovely view of the marina, ships and bridge. We shared a Wilted Spinach Salad (with pink lady apples, goat cheese & walnuts, $14) and a Tomato, Grilled Fennel and Onion... More

Greens is a very well - known San Francisco restaurant. I have eaten here several times. I think it is a great option to entertain out of town guests given its great location and view of Golden Gate Bridge. Paring is readily available - park "outside the gate" which is free compared to the lot near the restaurant. I have... More

Staying in Marina District

Neighborhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighborhood into a party-going hotspot.
