Choose from four dining areas. Seafood, sushi, barbecue or Asian. Pizza, salad bar, and hot food bar. There' something for everyone. Reasonably priced. Freshly prepared. Fast service. No tipping allowed. And you can do grocery shopping afterward. I highly recommend this dining experience.

I stopped here on the way back into the city to have alight lunch and pick up a salad and some grilled salmon or chicken to have in my hotel. Healthier alternative to the hotel food. We do this anywhere we go to ensure we are eating properly and not over indulging on overly salted fatty foods prepared in hotels... More

The only part of the Whole Foods, is the restaurant is in the back of the store. The seafood is great. The Scallops are perfectly seared, the suace, drizzeled just right. I challenge anyone to find better than this..

This is the best and largest Whole Foods in the area. The lunch and dinner buffet are outstanding and the variety is great. They also have a sports bar and happy hour specials. It's a good place to spend time after work especially when it's warmer outside. We also love sampling the different variety of cheeses. Whole Foods makes grocery... More

The thing I like best about Whole Foods is that they always ask if I found everything I needed. One time I said they were out of blueberries and so they gave me the raspberries I was buying for free. I love the food bar and the soup stations as well. Very helpful workers.

I really like the market itself, but I visited the wine bar upstairs this time. You can order food from anywhere in the store and they will bring it to you at the wine bar! How cool is that?

I recommend the various culinary stations from fresh seafood to sushi to wine & cheese. A wonderfully non-stressful venue for dates.
