Greens Restaurant is a landmark vegetarian restaurant[1][2] in the Fort Mason Center in the Marina District, San Francisco, California, overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge.

Founded by the San Francisco Zen Center in 1979,[3][4] Greens has been credited in The New York Times as “the restaurant that brought vegetarian food out from sprout-infested health food stores and established it as a cuisine in America.”[5]

The chef is Annie Somerville. The restaurant utilizes fresh produce from the organic Green Gulch Farm Zen Center.
