The food was pretty good, and it's nice to have a creative menu for vegetarians. And the setting is really beautiful, provided the setting sun doesn't blind you. But the food was quite expensive, and the flavors weren't commensurate with the expense.

Green’s offers only vegetarian meals, so it is not a place for meat lovers of hamburger fans. But for us, vegetarian is a nice alternative to the regular fare of other places and Green’s offers excellent meals. It’s location on the bay with its stunning views across the bay and of the Golden Gate Bridge make it a great place... More

Everything we tasted - and we ordered big so that we could try a lot of things - was delicious. The fig-burrata appetizer was quite good - the bread served with it was quite something (which it didn't have to be). The quinoa / cauliflower cakes were tremendous. The curry had an excellent flavor and was certainly enough for two.... More

Excellent views. Service was good. Food was good. We really enjoyed the holiday sampler. Enough to share. Great flavors. My orrichette dish was a bit watery and could have used a bit more flavor. The mushroom phyllo was tasty and filling. The best thing was the desert. Apple galette with ice cream. Outstanding. Tender pastry and flavorful apples.

Greens has just taken its place as the best high end vegetarian restaurant on the planet. The staff are all fantastic. The location is amazing. The room, especially the "heavy tables", is beyond compare. The food is excellent, obviously prepared and served with care and attention. Truly a wonderful, exceptional experience. Eating healthy has never been better. I could not... More

We were staying in San Francisco only one night with friends. We are all 4 vegetarians and eat organic. Even at the best restaurants, it's hard to find those two things plus delicious food and a beautiful view. I have heard about Greens for many years but had never tried it. The food and the view were both spectacular! I... More

The good things: parking is easy, the room is grand, the view of the harbor and the Golden Gate is terrific, and the service was very attentive, but not cloying or obtrusive. The not so good: the griddle cakes were largely tasteless, the orecchiette dish was watery although all the elements were bright, and the strawberry almond cake was dry... More

Even people who don't insist on vegetarian food will be happy at Greens. For those who do it's a must when in San Francisco. The food was good, the service attentive and the atmosphere buzzing. Ask for a table at the windows.

Don't waste your money on this place. Yes, the view is amazing, but pick up a sandwich at a local deli and sit on the bench at the marina, enjoying the view without the noise of this over-rated restaurant. Service is horrible. Some of the dishes are good, but seriously, I paid $45.00 for a plate of eggs that was... 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.
