“Fresh and tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

First Watch has been our "go to" for years. The food is always freshly prepared and the presentation is exceptional. Lighter fare options are available and just as tasty. The service staff is friendly, prompt and attentive. Sometimes we encounter a short line but the experience is always worth the wait. We've never had a disappointing experience at this First Watch location.

“horrible, miserable, lousy,unbelieveabley bad (service)”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

ok--ist time and always see crowds--so why not. waiting waiting waiting for a table. finally called for a table that was available when we and 3 others who waited for tables could have been seated in a "private /meeting room " right behind the cashier--who was waiting for tables to be cleaned in the "main" dining area which was busy and they were"short staffed. but wait this meeting area had other people eating there, plenty or room for more ---you mean she could not ask if we wanted to sit there! To boot that is where we were seated anyway! cashier was too busy taking money and could not multitask (huh) how much trouble is it to turn around and tell a wait person to seat us there or at least ask--since that is where we wound up anyway! It gets better---so we get out menu, order , get our meal and nvere see the waitress again except when we asked for box---no refils, no asking if everything was ok--but the check did come fast! OMG i would hate to see what it is like whem it is really busy on weekends--or maybe the people waiting today were left over from the weekend! food was goo that is why they got a poor otherwise you can imagine what i would rate. I am sorry my expectations were so good and I should have asked for a manager --was so mad i actually forgot to ask for one.
anyway bring yourself a snack while you are waiting and keep your expectations low so you may be surprised on the upside

“My first thought for a healthy good meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

First Watch opens for breakfast and lunch only. It is really a great, delicious, and healthy alternative. The restaurant in Longwood is always busy so sometime you have to wait, but it is worth it.

“Not Just for breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

I typically thought of this place for breakfast but you will be very happy to try the other meals that are offered as well. The soup and sandwich is a healthy great of satisfying a midday outing

I'll return again....

“Good Healthy Alternatives”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

After spending two days in a Disney Environment we were very happy to find this healthy restaurant. The portions are good and so are the prices. The food is fresh, made to order and the services was excellent. We do recommend this restaurant for health conscious people.
