Excellent veggie food in an upscale restaurant with a spectacular view

We booked a table well in advance and had high expectations. We expected this to be the culinary climax of our three day stay in San Francisco. I'm pleased to say that Greens didn't disappoint.

The food was pretty good; the room and setting are lovely. But the overall feel was cafeteria-like: too many tables; staff bustling people in and out. Odd for a Zen-inspired place!

greens used to be great, a treat with creative vegetarian food. Not any more. Perhaps the world has passed them by or they have just settled for mediocrity.

If I had eaten here 30 years ago when getting a decent vegetarian meal in a restaurant was all but impossible (beyond the ubiquitous 'stuffed pepper') I'd have raved about it. But since then the world has moved on & getting at least one creative option for vegetarians isn't hard at good restaurants. Greens though seems to be living on... More

Eating here last night I told my kids that "this is the place that, thirty five years ago, changed the restaurant world!" And it's still as good as ever. Meatless food without compromise. We started by sampling four appetizers: roasted peaches (Mmmmm!), warm cauliflower salad with pinions (Mmmmm again!), hummus, and a summer sampler plate. Everything was distinct and delicious....

I love food in San Francisco, the flavors are fresh and the imagination is terrific. Greens is vegetarian, but that doesn't mean delicate or thin. Every time we visit, we've enjoyed the myriad flavors, textures, colors, and medleys that each dish presents. Great wine list, too. The Saturday menu is fixed, with a few choices, but something for everyone. Nice... More

Wonderful view of the Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. We caught it on one of those post card, chamber of commerce days, no fog. I thought we were going for a brunch but it really was a fixed menu affair. If you are looking for a typical Bacon and Eggs not going to find them here. It is a... More

A pilgrimage to Greens, one of the first all vegetarian restaurants, was certainly worth it. The food was excellent, and my only complaint is that when we arrived 30 min early, one of the hostesses said she would seat us right away and the other one said "No, not yet" and made us wait until the exact time of our...

My husband and I had brunch here on a Sunday morning. The restaurant is open with huge windows and beautiful views of the marina and bay with the Golden Gate bridge right out the window. Service was professional and prompt. Our egg dishes were filled with delicious vegetables and were attractively presented. I would definitely eat here again. The farmer's... More

Waterside high end vegetarian food well prepared and elegantly served. Our 13 year old grandson liked his vegie pizza; my peas and fettuccine tasted just picked. Years ago I was part of vegie restaurant run by commune in Bay Area. This was the first time I've eaten food as good as I did then

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.
