I went to San Francisco in a family trip after picking up my children in their summer camps in Maine and found with the haunting news that my meat lover daughter (best fan of Peter Luger, Wolfgangs, Chicago Chop House and Longhorn) turned vegetarian. So I have to find vegetarian options for her and decided to try a full vegetarian... More

I've cooked from a Greens cookbook for years but never imagined I would sit down to eat at the restaurant. The mushroom barley soup served as a fabulous appetizer for the Roasted Poblano Chili. Stuffed with Quinoa, cream, and an assortment of veggies, the pepper was most flavorful and complete. The service was exquisite, and the views of one of... More

We recently dined at Greens with our son. My husband and I both had vivid memories of dining here. Great sweeping views of the marina, Huge wooden displays and very pretty atmosphere and competent wait staff continued to be a feature of Greens. Like not much has changed. The food is very tasty and portions, while they seem small, are... More

Okay, so maybe I'm embellishing the title a little, but the truth is this food was sssoooo delicious. I felt like 10 years had been added to my lifeline. And you know how they say that if it's too delicious, it's probably not healthy for you? Well, this restaurant's great food proves otherwise. Not only was it delectable, it was... More

This is one of those vegetarian restaurants that is so good that carnivores like me don't think of as vegetarian. The eclectic menu is inventive, and covers a wide range of tastes. The black bean chilli was spectacular; my wife and I split a bowl, a complex blend of tastes. My entree was a rich pasta dish, my wife ordered... More

Excellent vegetarian food. Established by San Francisco Zen center over 30 years ago and still preparing great food. We made a reservation a few weeks in advance. We were seated promptly and were brought bread and olive oil. We ordered Grilled blossom bluff peaches, Pupusas, and fresh spring rolls as appetizers. For our main course, we had green curry, Moroccan... More

One need to reserve the table before finding a place in time as it is patronized by large number of locals as well as those who visit SF from outside. The old ware house building has been tastefully done up to accommodate the restaurant and some of the tables appeared to have been carved out tastefully from red wood. This... More

Space is hard to come by in San Francisco, so the first feeding I got at Greens was of space and light. The former warehouse is aglow from the long row of windows opening onto the bay and marina. The art on display adds further elegance. My son had French toast for Sunday brunch, I had mesquite grilled brochettes and... More

The grilled peach salad with watercress and local honey was to die for! The pupusas were delicious! The fig and car elized onion pizza was great! Yum yum yum! We got food to go too! Highly recommend! Look around Fort Mason while you are there!

My mom and I had lunch here. I ordered the brochette of veggies and tofu with charmula sauce. I wanted to lick my plate. The sauce was that good. Our wait person gave me a list of the ingredients. I want to go back next time I'm in SF and try more of the menu.
