“great food great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

We loved our lunch at The Restaurant. The setting, among the gardens of the Plants of the Southwest, is peaceful and calm. The chef, Olive, is delightful to talk to and an excellent cook. The zucchini quinoa salad and zucchini chocolate cake were excellent, healthy and the food was plentiful. We highly recommend it.

“Great alternative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

My wife and I have made it to the kitchen several times since it reopened in late April, 2014.
Wonder meals prepared by Olive. Nutritious lunch which isn't so heavy you need a nap. Desserts are wonderful, typically fruit based and not all sugared up. We look forward to every visit and you can't beat Olive's welcoming smile.

“Perfectly SW with a light footprint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Finally made it here for a great vegetarian lunch after reading about this place months ago. All the freshest ingredients prepared with a subtle attention to seasoning and the nature of the food in a most beautiful setting. The menu is one item and dessert each day posted on The Kitchen @ PSW Facebook page or you could call or be pleasantly surprised as I was. A very fresh ratatiolle not heavy or overdone in the least. Excellent salad with a freshly made dressing that brought the individual elements together perfectly. Cloth napkins, silverware and real dishes give heft to a lunch to be sat down for. No grab and go here, though attentive service makes the meal timely. A place where the impact of our choices feels quite in tune with the surroundings. The superfluous edited out for clarity. A gracious, delicious respite from the usual.
