To some, Fort Mason standby Greens is dullsville with a nice view; to others, it's a delectable institution worth preserving, a relic that stirs up waves of nostalgia in those who have grazed on its quintessential cruelty-free California fare for the past 30 years. On Valentine's Day, the vegetarian restaurant will feature a special $88 four-course menu in the newly refurbished dining room, with offerings that include coconut risotto cakes with green curry and wild mushroom ravioli.

The destination for a romantic, celebratory, relationship-affirming repast says a lot about the relationship, potentially. Do you try an exciting yet untraveled new spot you've been longing to visit, confident that no disappointments ― perhaps an overcooked hunk of black cod, or a creepy server ― could darken the evening? Or do you play it safe and stick with a tried-and-true restaurant you prize for consistency? We'd love to hear your thoughts. Details after the jump.
