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.

After so many years and having both cookbooks I finally tried Greens. It was very good and inspirational. Good service and creative healthy food. Glad we went

We walked into Greens by chance while walking around the Marina area with my wife and 4 year old. The first thing that stuck us was the large windows overlooking the marina. It is located into a former warehouse inside Fort Mason and is nicely decorated with a lot of wood. The place feels welcoming and sophisticated without being pretentious.... More

It is amazing how good vegetarian food can be! My husband and I went for lunch and were impressed with the taste and presentation of the food.

Yes, Greens is a veggie restaurant, but I guarantee no meat eater will leave Greens feeling as though they have lacked anything. The food is fresh, inventive, satiating, and beautifully seasoned. The drinks are as creative and delicious as the food. The view is stunning and the service is great. Greens offers an elegant San Francisco dining experience. The restaurant... More

We loved it! What makes a good restaurant? Well, the food for me is number 1 and there was a good selection of vegetarian and vegan food with lots of different flavours and spices. It was hard to choose but what we did chose was very tasty. Although we're not exclusively vegetarians, we love cooking veggie food so we got... More

We were a party of four, vegetarians and non-vegetarians (youngest 15yo). The meal exceeded our expectations in terms of variety and taste. Service was a little slow, but we were in no hurry and our waitress was great. Lovely dining area. Little pricey, but I would pay it again. Definitely need a reservation.

My wife is a vegetarian, I am not. Took her here for a special dinner, and I was not impressed at all. If you are in a party of condescending vegetarians full of disdain for anyone who isn't, you will love this place. However, if you are not, stay away! This is probably the least accommodating restaurant I have ever... More

Nice views of the the bay with golden gate. Highly recommend reservations if planning a Friday/Saturday night dinner. Service was a bit slow, but I guess looking around people spend a good 1 h at least enjoying their food. Definitely on the expensive side, but as far as fine dining 100% vegetarian food goes, this is the place to be!... More

This is supposed to be one the best vegetarian restaurants in California, if not in the entire USA. I would say that most of its value is in the location with golden gate view (especially if you can manage to get a table by the window). We tried twice during our stay in San Francisco because on the first night... More
