Fresh and fun

Enjoyed our dinners. I had the Thai octopus salad and my wife had the Cobb salad with tarragon dressing, both very good. Everything was extremely fresh and prepared in view.

This restaurant has a great reputation for a good reason. It has a limited menu of excellent food, and food made to order while you wait. They are able to do this in an amazingly organized and speedy manner. Wine and beer served, as well as teas.

I was visiting and had never heard of Tender Greens. Delish! They even had an octopus salad. Everything is fresh and reasonably priced. You order at the counter and then bring food to your table yourself.

They don't skimp on the greens and you can see everything being made right in front of you. It seemed busy but the food came out really quick. Friendly staff and convenient location!

Love this place! The salads are fresh, plentiful and innovative. The chicken is tender and delicious and the flank steak, the best. Love the grilled vegetable salad. The staff is super friendly and we really enjoy sitting out in the lovely courtyard.

I had a great grilled Thai octopus salad! My husband had the fried Chicken salad and enjoyed it a lot. Their mint lemonade is delicious. A nice, healthy option near the Gaslamp district.

You can also dine in here. Healthy and delicious and consistantly good. They have a great process here-you can get your entree as a big salad, as a plate with mashed potato, or as a sandwich. They have 3 proteins (fish, chicken or beef) and several salads as well as a special each day and soup. Yummy roasted veggies too,... More

A good concept. Staff very friendly and helpful, willing to explain everything to us first timers. We enjoyed our meal here, especially the freshness. Free refills appreciated.

you really need to go to one of these (there is another in La Jolla too): healthy food, accessible prices. Try the mint lemonade. Also, they have lots of options for vegetarians. Salads are delicious and roasted vegetables too. I would reccomend this for anyone who is interested in tasty food that is good to your body too.
