This place is a joke. – I am so glad that I was not the one paying for dinner, because I would have refused to. We got 2 appetizers, the squash blossoms and the spring rolls. The blossoms were obviously frozen and chewy. These were something you would get at Applebees , they were basically bland jalapeno poppers. The spring rolls were paired with the wrong garnishments. One of my friends paid $17 dollars for a ten inch pizza with nothing special about it. The veggetables were not fresh, and the cheeses were nothing special.

My other friends got the green curry, which had good flavor but was not spicey, as they requested. And it was cold. Worst of all by far was my "fettucini" the sauce was runny, there were only tomoatoes and flakes of basil and EGG NOODLES. Like cheap, sticky egg noodles that come in the giant bag at the grocery store. I will never eat here again, and I will tell all my friends not to waste their time and money.

Best vegetarian food in the country! – Greens is my favorite restaurant hands down (I've eaten at a lot of great places too). It's very Californian and 100% vegetarian. The atmosphere is great too. The recipes are seemingly simple, but usually has quite a lot of flavor. And the execution is always great.

I wouldn't recommend Greens for brunch. But it might be the best vegetarian meal you sit down to.

A lot of dishes are very rich. But it's a nice treat on occasion. A guaranteed spot to please in San Francisco.

When pleasure meets with food quality – Very pleasant and unusual place. Wood all over the restaurant, view on the Marina (not the tourist one, the one in West North Beach).

It is a vegetarian restaurant and it is definitively a trip in the "Taste world".

We were 4 and shared all the dishes (yes, the swine flue fear is gone for now) so we all got to test 4 very different styles.

All the 4 dishes were good to very good and all were original in their presentation and taste.

Highly recommended if you like the mix of good View, Good food, good service and original atmosphere.

A Restaurant Coasting on Past Success – I remember Green's when it was unique, interesting, and there were always items on the menu that were fresh and exciting. That was then. I still go back periodically, but have been disappointed every time. It seems that Green's is coasting along, still bringing in customers, but not producing anything resembling cutting-edge dining. It's a shame. Without it's location, I'm guessing the restaurant wouldn't survive. Today, I found the menu to be dull, the food lackluster and bland, the service friendly but very spotty (I waited a long time for our server to check in after presenting entrees, which never happened, and finally flagged her down to ask her to add items listed for my entree on the menu but missing from the plate). Not particularly acceptable, especially given the prices.

This mediocre experience was capped off by having a staff member ask us to vacate our table at 1 hour and 45 minutes, as we were preparing to leave anyway (notably there were a number of empty tables and there were only a few people waiting - the request was a mystery).

Overall, my 3-star rating feels like a bit of a gift. Green's has done, and can do, much better.

very nice place – Excellent food, service, and ambience. Long wait usually, I wish they had longer hours. One of my favorites though.

OK Vegetarian Experience – To set the stage, my wife is mostly vegan and I am not. I stray on the side of whole foods and eat a lot less meat because of her.

The location seems very difficult to get to. You need to go inside the military base to get there ... it is not very visible.

The atmosphere needs some help. There are large windows facing the bay and has a really good view of the bridge, but the interior is stale. There are some cool wood tables that are sculptured as tables and seating, but they are about the only thing that adds any uniquenesses to the area -- the rest is standard fare.

The service was OK ... we waited for periods where I was wondering why we were waiting. Our seating was very early in the night so I guess they were just ramping up, but still it was not at all informative or very hospitable.

We had a sampler which was good. There were a couple of things that did not go together - especially a chutney in the center that didn't seem to go with the sampler even though it was good. I can't say I recommend it.

My wife had the enchiladas which was a departure for her. She was very excited to go to this restaurant and I could tell she was not happy. We switched meals about 3/4 of the way in because I could see her disappointment and I wanted her to try something else. So, I can tell you my experience with what she got -- it was awful. It reminded me of a Lean Cuisine meal -- bad, tasteless and lifeless.

I had the Mushroom and Leek Filo dinner and it was pretty good. If I remember correctly it was surrounded by Italian butter beans which were a fond reminder of my southern heritage. It was good, but a little lacking in flavor. I gave the rest to my wife to make up for her enchiladas, but I don't think it made up for it.

Great vegetarian fare, wonderful views, pleasant service. – This our habitual favorite San Francisco restaurant. Great food, lovely views, fair prices and good service.

The seasonal menu is delicious and the wines are interesting and well priced. Window seats are especially appreciated but can be a bit warm in direct lunchtime sun.

Deteriorated! – If you have enjoyed this place in the past, avoid it now.

If you heard from a friend that it was good, they must not have visited lately. The restaurant is no good anymore.

not what it used to be – This used to be a truly great place. Not anymore, folks. Indifferent, annoyed service by people who seem unhappy to be there. Food is served cold after clearly sitting around, and no one seems to care. The menu reads interestingly, but the food is uninteresting, mainstream, and WAY overpriced. They're living on their past legacy. This is definitely no longer one of SF's special places. Really.
