This was our first visit to Greens after many years of yearning to sample their vegetarian cuisine. We are big squash flower fans thus we thoroughly enjoyed the Pupusas filled with squash blossoms, spring onions, Serrano chilies, pumpkin seeds, smoked cheddar and cilantro, along with a truly delicious and **spicy** Bloody Mary. Jenna was our excellent server! She must have... More

Delicious, fresh food with an open atmosphere and great views of the bay. Not cheap, but not too expensive either, and well worth the trip. The staff was great. On a beautiful Saturday, there's a wait, but it was one of my favorite dining experiences of the past year - even a solo diner is made to feel comfortable here.

We had a fabulous vegetarian dining experience here. We arrived in time to get a window seat overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge at sunset. Everything was wonderful -- food, service, view, romance. next time in this area, we're doing it again

Sat by the windows and watched sea lions playing in the water. Great vegetarian menu. We had brunch and thoroughly enjoyed everything. Lovely atmosphere. On the weekend there was a farmers market right outside.

My last visit to Greens was a big disappointment. Besides having to trip over jogging strollers and kiddie seats the server seemed to be disconnected from what was going on. The food felt institutional. I guess that's the curse of "remember when" a restaurant use to be good.

Here is another instance where the absence of the opportunity to rate an entity as "good" requires the reviewer to reach slightly downwards to "average" of stretch to "very good" either of which is somewhat misleading. I hope you fix this oversight soon! This place is visually breathtaking. Mile high ceilings and everything is wood; huge chunks of petrified wood,... More

Hidden in what appears (at night) to be an industrial area, Green's features a warm greeting at the door, a wonderful view of the Golden Gate Bridge, delicious food and superb service. I'm not a vegetarian, but I will be back the next time I'm in San Francisco.

Located at Fort Mason in San Francisco, this has been a top destination restaurant for mote than 35 years. We started with Papusas, which were very flavorful, inventive and delicious. Fire Roasted Poblano Chili was my wife's choice, mine was Linguine, which had tomatoes, onions, corn, mushrooms, olive oil and of course Linguine. This dish with fresh ingredients, large portion...

I've been wanting to try this restaurant for a long time and I finally had the chance. My wife and I made reservations for a recent SF trip and we were not disappointed. The food was very good and the service was very good. I would recommend reservations for a weekend dinner as the place was full.
