My husband and I went to Raw today for lunch. We are not vegetarian or health food nuts, however we appreciate a good meal and we like to try new things. The menu is overwhelming. There are so many choices and many were out of the norm of my usual food choices, so I was outside of my comfort zone.... More

Arrived in West Hollywood after a long flight and hungry. Went walking down Santa Monica BLVD and came across Juliano's Raw. We are fans of raw food and this was great grub. The restaurant was pretty empty and while our order was taken quickly and water delivered the 2 dishes took 30 minutes to be delivered. Avocado Sushi was fantastic... More

If you want to experience art and organic living plant based food at its' best then please do come to Raw by Juliano. The food is intelligently plated with intense colors, orgasmic flavors and an over all sense of clean eating. Whether you are into raw food or not it is sure to give you an experience you won't forget.... More

Juliano's changed my life. I learned how to eat better, and working in corporate America, that's hard to do, especially when one is constantly on the go, working 16 hour days. I first came here on a date, and loved the food. I started bringing most of my business clients here, to help them become healthier too. One guy really... More

The dishes are snack-size and you will be hungry when you leave this restaurant. But, admittedly, the food is superb. Absolutely divine. A gastronomic experience if you like healthy and energizing. However, it's extremely expensive and I don't think it's for everybody's wallet. Sadly.

First, let me make clear that I have nothing against raw food. I personally eat a partly-raw Paleo diet, and I regularly visit raw vegan and raw vegetarian restaurants across thecountry when I travel, so I am no stranger to raw vegan restaurants. I also want to say upfront that I would never have eaten at this particular restaurant voluntarily... More

Im not sure why raw food preparation has to be so slow and expensive. There is no cooking time and less energy is used. I'm probably not educated on this topic but that's not even the point. Basically, the food is good and healthy but too expensive and the service is way too slow. I still go there often for... More

I am not a vegan. Nor will this restaurant convert me to become one, That said, I am curious as to how raw food can be an enjoyable restaurant experience. I approached it as "experimental theatre of the palate". On that level, it was a success. I was pleasantly surprised by the noodles as well as the strawberry cheesecake. Not... More

Wonderful raw meals. Love the noodles and the rolls. We sometimes go especially for the delicious and healthy shakes

This really was one of the worst dining experiences I have had. I am a vegetarian and Ayurvedic practitioner so have no bias against alternative diets. Sure raw food isn't the best for my constitution but Santa Monicans were raving about him and his food so I thought I'd give it a try. Menu looked great in theory. They didn't... More
