M wife is a vegan but I am not. That said we both enjoyed our meals at this friendly vegan restaurant. There are many choices o the menu, both hot and cold offerings. We both chose hot dishes in bowls, but couple have had wraps or chibatta bread instead. The bowls offered unusual combinations such as kale, chickpeas, corn, carrot... More

The food here is delicious and the portions are very generous. we had to wait in a long line to order and found a very small cramped corner downstairs to eat our meal with a bench as our table. I had the vegan carrot ginger soup which was very good...along with the warrior salad. I would highly recommend Life Alive.... More

This was the best vegie meal and smoothie that I have had in months. Service was efficient and friendly at what was probably the busiest time of day. But please, no more Mason Jars! I would go back here in a flash if I was staying in Boston longer.

I like the food, I love the concept actually, and I support it - I eat it. But the management of this place - the simple reality of long lines and chaos - it is just really amateur and makes people (me included) dread dealing with them. Simple fact: they could have a place on every block of Mass Ave... More

Located right on Mass Ave, Life Alive is a well-located place for those looking to grab a quick, yet very healthy meal. Love their assortment of salads and the juices are wonderful. Would not recommend for anyone looking for a more intimate experience (since it's on the "fast casual" side of dining). Whenever I've been there have met kind, eclectic... More

I see why the lines are long! I love when I am able to go to a restaurant that is such a home run that I want to go back - and do whatever it takes to make that return trip happen. I could NOT make that return trip happen, but I did take home a menu so I can... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Boston. Without a doubt. Everything is organic and delicious. My favorite is the Green Goddess bowl. And the smoothies are amazing. I've brought a lot of non-vegetarians and non-vegans here and they've been surprised at how satisfying the meals and smoothies are. Love this place.

I stayed just next door to the restaurant and dropped by because of the lineups. The lineup is out the door during meal times but reasonably quick and worth the wait. I went twice during my last visit to Boston. I had the Goddess with the sides including egg, garlic, avocado and tamari almonds. They can be pretty busy and... More

My friend couldn't wait to take my daughter and myself here, and I soon found out why! Life Alive is on two levels. As we queued up (counter system) coming in the door, it was so busy we had plenty of time to choose from the menu and to have a free sample of a very spicy gingery smoothie. Being... More

We stopped by on our way to Harvard after it was recommended by a good friend. The decor is beautiful, and you'll have plenty of time to admire it as you stand on the inevitably long line to order. However, the entire staff was quite friendly and welcoming. It didn't take too long for our orders to arrive, and our... More
