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

We typically get take out or delivery from Greenleaf weekly. It is such a good option for weeknight dinners. The kale side salad and sweet potato fries are our favorites. Don't forget to tell them your email so you can earn points.

Casual rustic atmosphere with tasty, fresh, healthy food. Really enjoy eating there. My favorite is the Lemongrass Chicken salad! Also some great soups. Can't wait to go back. I'm due.

My family and I went here last weekend. The food was so so, my dish, the meat scramble was bland. They put pepperoncini's in the dish, which tend to be bitter. They had a children's menu, which we did not find out until after the meal, because they are not posted anywhere. Over all, a mediocre eatery, at least for... More

I usually go to eat with my co-workers since it's down the street from my workplace. It has a good variety of food and everyone can pick whatever they want. It is really busy during lunch but there is an outdoor eating area. Depending on when you go though, it can still be a tight fit. Their portions are generous... More

Will return again when we visit NB. Wish I could find food like this back home in north Texas!! I love their salads, and the vegetarian burgers was the best I may have ever had

I was hesitant to eat here after a less than optimal experience at the one at SOCO/OC Mart Mix. This location is very quaint and reminds me of a restaurant that would be in Austin, a city full of great restaurants. My friend and I ordered food and wine and sat on the patio which was quite nice at dusk.... More

Since they took my favorite item off the menu I moved this rating from excellent to very good. Greenleaf does have fabulous salads, and for picky eaters or those with food allergies, Greenleaf is an great choice as you can customize anything on the menu easily. Generous parking, which in Newport is a help, very fresh ingredients, organic too.
