Ok, I was looking for a quick lunch and stopped here with no expectations. Yum yum yum. The bistro steak sandwich is a winner. The menu had many options including vegetarian and vegan. I will be the meat eater here! Yum

I’m hooked on the Bistro Steak. The sandwich was so flavorful with fresh arugula and roasted tomatoes— it is the only sandwich we order now. Lately we have been ordering this sandwich at least once a week. Their curbside pickup is in the back of...the storefront along Lincoln Blvd. or you can order through DoorDash. Just thinking about the Bistro Steak sandwich is giving me a craving...More

We love Mendocino Farms. You can order ahead of time and pick up or go there and order. I don't think they have indoor seating right now. We were there and no one was seated at the few tables they have. They have a large...menu and a vegan can get something good there as can a vegetarian. Personally, I love their steak sandwiches and they have quite a few different variations. Their Chinese chicken salad is also great, loaded with chicken and fresh greens. This Mendocino Farms is located in a large strip mall. Parking will take a minute, but there is plenty and it just depends on how close you want to be to the storefront. The service is super friendly and pretty fast. You can also have anything delivered with a minimum purchase, which I think is $11. Have a great time.More

We enjoyed all of our lunches at Mendocino Farms in Santa Monica and Marina Del Rey. Fresh healthy salads and sandwiches even our fussy 13 year old enjoyed. Great service and reasonably priced options at both venues only downside just big lines at Venice Beach...at lunch time as it’s so popular.More

We were in the area waiting for the events at the park to start so we stopped in for a sandwich. The impossible burger was delicious and so was the cauliflower soup was so good. We really enjoyed the meal. The service is good and...the wait staff is friendly.More

I will admit we did not go to this area of MDR for sandwiches, but as a Plan "B" this was a happy and enjoyable alternative. As newcomers we were overwhelmed by the menu and process and so the staff member at the door took...time and patience to explain everything to our group of 6. He made recommendations based on our questions. In the end none of us was disappointed -- four had the Kurobuta Pork Belly Banh Mi, another the Cobb Salad and I had the Mendoza's Chimichurri Steak on a Pretzel Bun and side of Quinoa and Beets. All were satisfied and would recommend. Nicely washed down with selection of craft brews.More

Not worth the hype. The sandwiches were fine but nothing unique or exceptional. The sides were unimaginative.

Been twice and tend to forget how great the place is. Healthy eats and great service. When you go to pay there is a sampling of salads items you can add on. Or just snack before you get your order. If in the area I...will go back.More

Parking was a challenge on a Sunday afternoon during Labor Day weekend but we needed something for lunch. First time here and I was impressed with their friendly service when we ordered. The female staff asked me if I wanted to sample their bacon and...their sides and, of course, I said yes. We ordered the modern tuna sandwich, Cobb salad and a bowl of chicken tortilla soup. The sandwich and salad were very good while I expected a bit more chicken and a lot more tortilla in their soup. Prices are pretty reasonable for what they offer. Definitely coming back to one of their many locations.More
