Greens San Francisco 2

Greens Restaurant has been serving vegetarian fare since 1979. Their Green Gulch Farm provides much of the produce. Greens was a pioneer in the early days. Today almost every fancy restaurant accommodates vegetarians. The menu changes all the time. They have a $49 4 course prix fix menu on Saturdays.

Greens San Francisco 3

Decor, Vibe – Most tables have a stunning view of the San Francisco Marina’s harbor and the Golden Gate Bridge. The dining room has a mish mash of paintings, wood, and sculpture. There were a lot of folks in their 30’s to 50’s dining. A fair amount of hippies.

Picks:

Greens San Francisco Mediterranean Sampler

Mediterranean Sampler ($15) – French lentil salad with feta, lemon and mint; filo turnover with artichokes, spring onions, fromage blanc and pecorino pepato; golden and chioggia beets with mach; roasted pepper hummous; grilled pita bread; spicy tomato jam; olives. This was the best dish of the night, but it was tiny. We got to sample lots of fresh items with diverse flavors. Great dips.

Greens San Francisco Filo Pastry

Crepe ($25) filled with mushrooms, with a lite mushroom sauce, and served with sauteed rainbow chard and dinosaur kale. Light, Airy, and Delicate with well cooked veggies. Very good mushrooms and sauce.

OK:

Greens San Francisco Mesquite Grilled Brochettes

Mesquite Grilled Brochettes ($19) – skewers of mushrooms, peppers, garnet yams, fennel, potatoes, cherry tomatoes and marinated tofu with charmoula. Served on cherry-pistachio couscous. Many of the items were over charred. Quality of the product was there as was quantity.

Pans:
None

Greens Restaurant used to be cutting edge, but with such high prices, you could get much better vegetarian food elsewhere. Glasses of wine started at $10. A Navarro Pinot Noir was good. The view is beautiful and timeless, unless the fog is rolling in. We would recommend foodies come at least once to experience the place.
You can sample their food for less by getting some at their take out counter, Greens to go.
