I was starving & there was free parking. Literally should have been enough to make any meal awesome. A gorgeous warm day in the bay, water and blue as can be and a view to the Golden Gate bridge, sounded perfect. Bonus that they advertised vegan, healthy, local, sustainable, organic food - meaning things this food-allergy gal can eat! The... More

After hearing about this place for years, we finally went to celebrate some family events. The evening was a classic San Francisco dream - sunset incredible to watch from the table! The food was good, but for the prices charged I really expected more. The fact that these are only vegetables and being charged as if there was meat led... More

This restaurant is great. The staff is super friendly and polite and the food is very good too. We called in advance to make a reservation of a table next to the window where you get views of the marina and golden gate bridge and the girl working there had it prepared for us as soon as we got there....

It is the first time that several people from complertely different circles suggest we should eat at the same restaurant. Not only does this make Greens an exception but it is also an indicator of the high quality of their food. Our main dishes were excellent as was the butterscotch pot. The summer roll with an amazing peanut sauce was... More

Wonderful restaurant with great marina views. The combinations of favors in every dish we had were superb. We were there for lunch – many locals fill it up quickly. It has an all vegetarian menu. As an omni, I never noticed – and my veggie wife was in heaven. Examples of what we had: Wilted Spinach Salad (with chicory, frisée,... More

Greens was handy for meals during my visit to the San Francisco International Ocean Film Festival. It was more than just convenient, as I kept going back for the most delicious vegetarian food, wine, drinks, and pleasant atmosphere. I enjoyed tofu kebabs, stuffed poblano, delicious salads, local organic wines and on weekends they have a unique blood orange ginger homemade... More

New potatoes and new peas in a salad. An avocado sandwich and a view of the Bay. There is a full restaurant here, but on this particular Saturday it was closed for a private party. But as I saw, decent takeout lunch.

greens was started many years ago by the SF Zen Center. Its food is fresh, locally sourced vegetarian. The menu changes daily. The tacos are delicious as are the spring rolls (cut into four pieces). The black currant lemonade was a refreshing twist on the classic. The wait staff is pleasant, efficient, and serene. The view of the Golden Gate... More

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.
