“Wish it was located back East”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014 via mobile

Fresh, local foods in a creative menu. My grilled potabello with fresh mozzarella and basil on a freshly baked whole grain roll.
Bring your appetite, and come early, as the line forms quickly after noontime.

“Beautiful, tasty, healthy food...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

My husband and I stumbled upon this restaurant by accident. We walked past it on the way to the Gaslamp Quarter. We continued on and checked out several other restaurants. All were noisy, touristy and expensive. So we turned around and walked back to Tender Greens. Best decision we could have made!
The food was amazing. This restaurant proves that healthy food can also be delicious.
We had soups, enormous salads and shared a huge slice of wonderful berry cheesecake. The coffee was also very good and the tea is actually real tea leaves made in a pot.
The whole meal cost about $42 which for the quality of the food was not expensive at all.
The servers were friendly and the ambience is great - quiet background music with well spaced tables.
This really is an excellent restaurant and I wish we were in San Diego longer so we could return.
I thoroughly recommend a visit.

“It's better than the name would indicate”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Honestly, if not dragged in by friends I would have never gone into a place named "Tender Greens". Too hippy, too green, too... well you know. But, you can go in and get good steak and potatoes. A little bit high but not outrageous. This is not encouragement to go in, but more a note to the other "men" out there, you don't have to avoid this place.
