Loved my chopped salad, lots of healthy greens and veggies. Loved the decor and rustic style of the restaurant. Foun sitting outdoors where I brought my dog and cute bar area also. Very popular😋

Greenleaf Chopshop has been crowded since the day it opened; it's an 'organic' style restaurant where you order at the counter, and then they deliver your meal to your table. There are many vegetarian and organic options. The food is okay; the restaurant is usually pretty noisy, and the service is soso. The best thing I've ever had there was... More

I have never been disappointed by a meal here BUT I am not sure it's worth the price these days. There are so many quality healthy options opening up that I'm finding it harder to pay 20+ dollars for a salad because I want chicken on it. And lately the chicken has been rubbery multiple times. Overall I still love... More

If you're itching for something healthy (or are forced into it), Greenleaf Chopshop has it all! With a diverse menu and good variety of proteins (steak, chicken, fish), complex/"good" carbs (kale, quinoa, sweet potato fries, salads, and breakfast items, you are sure to find something to your taste bud's likings. I ordered the almond crusted chicken with sweet potato fries... More

Out of a whim we decided to eat here for lunch,we were in the mood for salads and boy did they deliver. I ordered the chicken wang salad, not misspelled either. The produce was exceptionally fresh, the dressing was creamy and not over bearing and the sauce had kick but was not overwhelmingly spicy. My husband had the Hollywood Bowl... More

I liked that they have locally sourced, sustainable, and organic ingredients. Great menu, from seasonal specials to sandwiches and salads...everything sounded yummy and interesting. My lemongrass chicken salad was good...chock full of all kinds of ingredients (as my husband calls it, a busy salad) that blended well together. Unfortunately, my friend's winter butternut squash and goat cheese salad was mostly... More

A friend and I meet up every month or two to catch up and this restaurant is very convenient, the food is healthy and they have a nice wine selection. Out typical visit is wine, hummus and veggies and water and we both usually get an order to go. We're very low maintenance. During our last visit we sat down,... More

Some people find Greenleaf a little confusing on the first visit. You can order off the menu (and everything is fresh and good) or you can put together your own salad. You get to pick your greens, all the goodies, protein and dressing from a large selection of fresh products. The salads are quite large. The homemade soups are also... More
