A bit pricey, but delicious, healthy food options

When we first got there, it was difficult to see what all the options were. It also wasn't spellled out exactly what came with each meal. However, the food itself was delicious. My husband and I both got the BBQ Chicken Salad. It had so many great ingredients in it, and was very filling. The... read more

After sightseeing at Cabrillo Nationa Park at Point Loma we had lunch at Tender Greens. The salads were delicious and made with very fresh greens.All four of us were pleased with our choice.Since it was alovely day we chose to eat outside which was more pleasant than inside dining.In the future if in the area would dine there

Our lunch was excellent, it felt indulgent while being truly healthy (which has been a challenge for us while traveling!) The lines are pretty long at lunchtime, but calling ahead for take out solved that pretty quickly. The tuna sandwich was wonderful, my husbands salad was fresh and lovely. The surrounding area at Liberty Station begs for a blanket on... More

Visited for dinner during Comic Con when San Diego was crazy busy. This place was crowded but still low keyed. Food choices were great, with some healthy options available. Salad with meat or fish choices, tried both...very tasty. Staff is very friendly, manager on duty was helpful and open to making changes to my choices. Loved the Hibiscus Ice tea,... More

This is one the best falafel I've ever eaten. The restaurant is in a great location and the outdoor patio is the perfect place to enjoy a great meal. The staff is very friendly and the service is quick. Highly recommended!

Oh the little places you will find. I love their albacore tuna in a sandwich, preferably well done with a spinach hazelnut salad. Their cowboy cookies are a sinful delight. I like how the dining room attendants will ask to refill your beverage, which is super nice. The staff are all smart and pleasant, only adding to the happiness of... More

This was a pleasant surprise. The meals were very tasty, light and well portioned. This would be a nice place for a quick lunch or dinner. I wish we had discovered it earlier in the trip

Busy place at lunch time but the line moves fast! The oriental salad was just right with the nuts and dressing wasn't overwhelming. Great options for healthy eaters.

I order my meals here to go. Incredible healthy food and lots of interesting choices. It's just that the restaurant has so many fans the line can get very long, and you may not find seating. I bypass that by calling my order in and picnicking with it in the many parks and galleries nearby. If you call your order... More
