Concierge.com's insider take:
This vegetarian favorite eschews the common practice of trying to make tofu taste like meat. Instead, expect a satisfyingly rich combination of textures and flavors, like an artichoke and sunchoke gratin, layered like a mini-lasagna, with Fromage Blanc custard and tomato coulis. A quirky list of mostly local, biodynamic wines skews more toward Sonoma and Mendocino than Napa, a subtle revelation of the San Francisco locavore's food politics. Though the dining room's redwood-burl fixtures and excessive use of beige feel dated, it occupies a knockout location jutting into San Francisco Bay with a wall of windows overlooking the yacht harbor, framed by the Golden Gate Bridge. If you're bicycling through Fort Mason and the surrounding Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Greens also operates a to-go counter, where you can pick up sandwiches and salads. —John A. Vlahides
