This popular restaurant is definitely worth a visit. San Francisco and indeed the US is way behind other countries in offering vegetarian options in mainstream restaurants, unless you want to eat a "veggie patty" every night. The food and the wine at this restaurant was excellent. I've not given five stars simply because it's very expensive. It's not too far... More

This is a marvelous spot with unique ambiance in a beautiful space. The service was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our lovely waitress. This is the sort of vegetarian food that leaves you convinced that the chef is actually interested in creativity and heartiness not just making healthy meat alternatives. Everything we ate (which was a lot!) was stupendous.

Greens restaurant came highly recommended to us even though we are not vegetarians. Had we known the view would be spectacular we would have booked earlier reservations to enjoy the view and walking paths nearby. Regardless, the food was delicious! The salad was fresh and enjoyable. The shepherds pie was filled with mushrooms so you've got to enjoy that to... More

I know I am in the minority here but found this to be the worst meal I had in SF in a recent trip. I will preface that I am vegetarian and have had very delicious vegetarian meals before. The service was ok and not friendly, and the food was very average. I got the spring rolls and a cup... More

Walked in at 6PM Saturday and lucked into a table near the bar and entrance (I'd recommend reservations; it is a large place but popular). Our table was uniquely fashioned from a large part of a tree and though knee room was minimal it was a cool table. We were still able to take in the sunset through the GG... More

This is our second time at Greens (the first being 19 years ago) and we weren't disappointed. The location is fabulous with views over Crissy Field and the Golden Gate Bridge. You can even watch seals swim in the marina while you eat. The restaurant serves imaginative vegetarian food which would please even meat eaters like ourselves. Portions were good... More

I visited this restaurant in January and loved everything about it: location, service, and food. Considering that this is San Francisco, prices were rather reasonable for the quality of service and food provided. Nice view, too. We also loved the atmosphere. I would definitely recommend it.

Spacious and airy locale with excellent food. One self-professed "meat eater" loved all the vegetarian offerings. Professional waiter who was "just right". The only negative aspect was the bill but this was expected and easily overlooked after the superb food(and wine).

This is one of San Francisco's classic restaurants with an amazing view of the Golden Gate Bridge (bring your sunglasses). Many people are put off by the fact that this is a vegetarian restaurant (one of the grand dames of that field that helped revolutionize dining in the 1970s). I promise that you will leave full with wonderful tastes to... 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.
