This was my third time eating at Greens and I must say it is still as delicious as ever. Go early, get a window seat and enjoy the sunset over the marina. Our server was exceptional. The staff tastes everything before dinner starts so they can describe everything and make suggestions.

We visited Green's restaurant in San Francisco one evening with our family for an anniversary celebration. Located in the Marina with a view of The Golden Gate Bridge, the restaurant has a unique setting. Since the two of us are vegans and the rest are not, we found the Four Course Price Fixe Dinner menu to be ideal for everyone.... More

Of course, I really have no idea how it is on a busy weekend, as we were there midweek and just walked right in for lunch. We were able to sit at a window seat on a day you could see the bridge. The food is world renowned, and lives up to its reputation. There are some crazy gorgeous tables... More

Really enjoyed our outing here with my partner and San Fran friend who it had been recommended too. The food was beautiful - both presentation and taste, and we especially enjoyed the desserts. Wonderful service - the right level of attention and friendly and felt well looked after. On top of which you get a great view of the Golden... More

Perhaps there was a time when this restaurant was unusual and cutting edge, but vegetarian food has improved, and Greens offers a good but not outstanding menu. The $58 prix fixe is a bit pricey for what's provided. A beets and asparagus appetizer was novel and pretty, but a butternut squash dish was ordinary. There's a table for 6 in... More

Tired from a long day of traveling, we nonetheless went in search of a good restaurant to kick off our California vacation dinner experience and we found not a good but a great restaurant. The views of the harbor and the Golden Gate were spectacular--they are right on the water. Though not solely vegetarians, we picked Greens based on what... More

The restaurant is located overlooking the bay and you can see the bridge and cute sealions (or seals?) from the window, so its lovely for Sunday brunch when I went. Do make a reservation its very popular, and rightly so. Our service was great, and food came promptly. The food itself was presented well and tasted delicious. I highly recommend... More

Really good quality food, delicately balanced with obvious craft. Pretty good service (though rapidly coming to the view that fabled US service has lost its edge - not Greens fault alone though). Only mark I can really place against this place is location - it's basically in the middle of nowhere. Shepherds pie was a stand out and the two... More

My mother and I ate here at the recommendation of a few locals. We made a reservation, but when we walked in we were greeted rudely by the hostess. Even though the restaurant was half empty, she made us wait 15 minutes to be seated. However, when we were seated, we received excellent service from our knowledgeable server, and the... 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.
