Will return again when we visit NB. Wish I could find food like this back home in north Texas!! I love their salads, and the vegetarian burgers was the best I may have ever had

I was hesitant to eat here after a less than optimal experience at the one at SOCO/OC Mart Mix. This location is very quaint and reminds me of a restaurant that would be in Austin, a city full of great restaurants. My friend and I ordered food and wine and sat on the patio which was quite nice at dusk.... More

Since they took my favorite item off the menu I moved this rating from excellent to very good. Greenleaf does have fabulous salads, and for picky eaters or those with food allergies, Greenleaf is an great choice as you can customize anything on the menu easily. Generous parking, which in Newport is a help, very fresh ingredients, organic too.

The food is good here and quite original. The cookies were great too, by the way. I had the stead salad but my family members ordered a number of different menu items. The pizzas are good too. Try the spicy ginger ale. It’s got a real kick!

Never had a salad like this one...fresh--like really fresh and local lettuce, tomato, olives, humus, onion...and all the side stuff. Sat at the bar and faced a menu with so many choices--and a ability to construct anykind of salad or juice...decisions...decisions..made all the better by the folks behind the bar who took us through the multiple options.... solid wine choices..and...

Good selection of salads (prearranged and an option for you to build your own), sandwiches, and entrees. I thought I ordered the turkey panini and instead received a cold turkey sandwich. The sandwich included shaved turkey meat, blue cheese, and sliced green apple. My friend ordered an entry w/ tuna, pasta salad (excellent!) and kale salad (bland). This location had... More

Met up here with a very good friend to eat some dinner. Parking was a little frustrating because there weren't any spaces available in the lot designated, so we parked on the street. Parking is always such a huge deal with me though, so if you don't mind hunting for a spot then it shouldn't bother you. I loved the... More

I Love this place. One of my favorite places to go where I can eat because I am so picky about food. And I don't like a lot of surprises in my food. I had the tortilla soup which said nothing about huge chunks of avocado in it. So of course I returned it. They were fast on getting me... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant and we were impressed! The pan fried salmon was prepared wonderfully and was very tasty. The pita chips and hummus side were delicious with a fresh herb-y flavor. The "Grilled Deliciousness" was unusual - it was like a savory fig newton in a little tart crust. The oven baked sweet potato "fries"... More

I work in nearby Newport Beach and have had many great meals here. Their turkey burger is arguably the best I have ever had. Their Cobb salad is outstanding as are their gourmet pizza's. They have hand picked a nice selection of wines as we like to have a nice wine for dinner. Their breakfast is a nice kept secret... More
