Had some tasty take out from TG. We had called in the order but they made it fresh when I got there, which was ok as I had time but I suppose for someone in a hurry would have been a little frustrating. Had the steak hot plate and chicken hot plate. Meats were very good as were the Yukon... More

After a birthday party, we decided to walk around with my friends to find a place to eat. We had something planned but then we saw Tender Greens. It looked so open and free, we were immediately drawn to the place and walked inside. Honestly, I like my veggies but not too much so I didn't think I'd like it... More

This place is refreshing! High quality food at a reasonable price. My wife and I ate here two days in a row because we liked it so much. Also the portion sizes are generous and you won't go home hungry.

Me and my boyfriend stayed in Santa Monica for 5 nights and came to tender greens 3 times, it's that's great! It was actually our tour guide who recommended it to us so thought we'd give it a try. Yes the queues are long but the service is fast so it makes up for it! All of the dishes we... More

The lunch queues are here for a reason. A great place to stop for a super tasty and healthy lunch. Some very tasty salads and drinks on offer in a great restaurant format for people eating in or taking out. We'll worth checking out.

Was not a planned stop but saw the line to get in & wasn't sure what to expect. Awesome Surprise of Fresh Choices prepared in front of you. Amongst our group of friends, we had the Chicken, Beef, Salads & Soups. You have a choice of healthy sides to go with your Main Choice as well. Must say, all was... More

Tender greens is amazing! Its the perfect restaurant to dine with friends, fussy eaters or to simply grab a take away. You pick your sides and salads and they choose either meat, fish or grilled veggies to top it all off. They have decadent deserts to tempt you in and balance it out with kombucha and natural sodas on tap.... More

At first I had some doubts about this order-prepare-checkout counter like restaurant, but, man it was good! Nice well prepared steak, spinach w/goatcheese and hazelnut salad, sweetcorn bread, apricot crumble cake, cherry berry, it was good! Now I know why there are lines in front to get in. Do it: wait and get in, you won't regret it!
