The seafood is incredible especially the salmon which I always get Baja style! The sports bar great food and decent prices. Crab cake sandwich when they have it with the sweet chili sauce is sooooo good! Also the chicken tandoori tacos are really yummy! Salad bar has great selection a little pricey but fresh and great healthy food!:-)

Every once and a while my wife and I go to the seafood kiosk in our Whole Foods market. When we do, it is like being on vacation as it is a special place with great food and most of the time a live band on the weekends. My wife always orders the bouillabaisse and I ordered the fish and... More

This inside the store restaurant is excellent and interesting to watch the food prep as you eat. The seafood is exceptionally fresh and delicious although the menu choices are quite limited. Also on the expensive side but then everything associated with this store is - but to me it was worth it.

I visited many Whole Foods in the county and this is one of the best Whole Foods out there! Love everything about this store. Great selection! There is no place better to find fresh fish or meat. The seafood cafe and pizza are fantastic and great price! Try their "Bouillabaisse french fish soup" and you will always come back to... More

There are four different food bars which you can eat at: The Asian Bar, The Seafood Bar, and The Cheese Bar. There's also a fast-casual "Sports Spot" Bar serving really good burgers, fries, and tacos (In addition to other accouterments). Also, there's a "Design-your-own sandwich" area, a Pizza bar, a place to get "Bistro" food, two pastry bars, a gelato... More

Whole foods is my family's go to store for all meats, produce, fish, cheese, and pretty much any other food items. However, what sets this huge Whole Foods apart from the others are the many restaurants and dining options inside. The four "themed" restaurants include seafood, BBQ, Asian, and cheese (cheese has limited hours). The fish restaurant is our absolute... More

Whether you want just a sandwich or a full meal or a slice of pizza or lovely cookies, or soup, or Asian or Indian or a salad, you'll find all that and more here. Food is fresh and good. I like the protein and two sides offerings as a take away for dinner. Portions are good (there is usually some... More
