If I was reviewing this place on food alone, it would get an excellent. Unfortunately, I have to dock the place a few stars for the the lack of seating and the ordering/food delivery system. One person in our party of four didn't receive their order (a pb & j!!!) because it came from the juice station, which was backed... More

I have been living in Lowell for a few months now and this place is my regular haunt. So far I have had the Innocent, Adventurer, Swarmi and Goddess and have loved every one. The swami or adventurer are probably my favourites and I am intent on working my way down the menu. Tonight I tried one of their smoothies... More

My first visit to Life Alive. I had the Alchemist bowl and plan to work my way down the menu. I sampled dining companions' dishes and all were equally fresh and delicious. The Carrot Cake smoothie makes a great dessert. Love the "green theme." Don't hog the bathroom looking at all the cool stuff.

I like their atmosphere and staff. The food is fresh and tasty. But if you're not vegan, the choices are limited.

I love the Goddess bowls here. Very delicious. Good portion size. I also like to get my Appreciation Card stamped so I get a free meal after 12 meals purchased. It can be difficult to find parking, so I try to come at an "off" time to increase my chances.

I love Life Alive. Amazing vegetarian/vegan organic restaurant. Excellent food, big portions, great staff. Big lunch crowd, call ahead for take out during this time is good if your time is limited. Some outside seating in the good weather. Bright and cheery and always playing great music. Saturdays they usually have an acoustic singer songwriter. The other 2 locations in... More

In days gone by I would have been referred to as a knife and fork man or a meat and potatoes kind of guy. Well, Life Alive is a breathe of fresh air and a lite but deliciously filling experience. The portions are great and the vegetarian fare is even better. An absolute must.

Decided to be healthy tonight and went out with one of my good friends that loves organic food. Saw great reviews on Life Alive, so had to try it out. I had the Udon Miso Masterful, it is a dark barley miso broth deepened with toasted sesame & flax oils, a dash of braggs, sesame seeds, broccoli, dark greens, shredded... More

LifeAlive! I can't say enough good things about how WONDERFUL this little enchanted place is. If you're considering taking a greener approach to your intake/diet, your search stops here. Very FRIENDLY staff with excellent options! Even for the most bacon-obsessed meat eaters can find something that will suffice (sorry, no bacon options). It's my own kitchen away from home, and...
