Inclusive menu for a family with widely divergent food restrictions and tastes. Everything tastes wonderful except the veggie burger which was meh.

I went here for a quick and healthy lunch and this is exactly what I got. For "fast" food, this was great. I enjoyed the fish taco which tasted fresh. I would definitely go here often if I lived in the area. They had a great iced tea as well. I was also nice that they had a water bar.... More

Lyfe kitchen provides typical California options with separate menus for vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free diets. Free wifi and a pleasant seating area make this a great spot to sit and do work or relax with friends and family. High prices if you're on a student budget but reasonable considering the atmosphere and quality of the food?

I'd rate it higher than average but not in the very good category. I liked the unconventional approach, relaxed atmosphere, the location is good, but the food is just "ok". Maybe visiting on Mothers Day wasn't the best day for our introductory visit ?

This was all new to us. Order at the till and service is quick. Excellent innovative and healthy menu at extremely competitive prices. It fills a real gap for healthy fast food.

Really fresh food, and a great concept, but prices are too high (even for Palo Alto!). There are lots of better choices.

I like that an entire dish with complex flavors can be only 600 calories. Nice folks at the counter, too.

The restaurant is located in the middle of downtown Palo Alto, convenient for shopping and the parking was relatively easy. The decor is modern and neat/clean. The staff was friendly and efficient. I ordered the chicken sandwich (which was delicious) and a side of... More

Their smoothies and cucumber water are delicious. I thought the food was average. Their unfried chicken and fish tacos were average. I didn't love or hate these entrees. This is a great place if you are in a rush and want a healthy meal. I had a hard time finding a table because the tables that were empty were dirty... More
