Absolutely fresh food. Really enjoyed the friendliness of the staff too. The Hibiscus tea was amazing and went well with my salad too. Have fun.

Tender Greens is great. It is a small chain, but the one in Marina Del Rey is my favorite. The service is fantastic and you're given time to relax and enjoy your meal. the atmosphere is very nice and the place is spotless. Their menu...is not huge but it is great. you can have rare steak if you like or chicken. You pick your entree and your sides. This way you have everything you could possibly want and the way you want it. They also have bowls which are fantastic, again you pick your protein and it is presented with a lovely salad of your choosing. They have a nice selection of desserts and various drinks. Have a great time.More

This place has gone down in the past...not sure what it is, but either they don't seem to care anymore or... Again, like the previous time, they "forgot" to complete the order and one meal was missing. This time I paid attention and they completed...it. The side order of veggies was completely overcooked and mushy...looked awful. The Tuna Nicoise was probably the worst Nicoise (if that's what it was supposed to be) I had there. Tuna was completly mushy and half shredded, as if they had ripped it off the fish, rather than cut. Taste was bland. Dressing was a disaster. Sharp, acidic, very sour, nothing even resembling what should be on a Nicoise. Best were the potatoes in the salad (and that should say a lot). There are other Tender Greens, but won't go there again.More

I tried this place with my family one evening and we loved it. My daughter had the kid menu, my son a sandwich, my husband the beef and I had the tuna and we all loved our meals. The choice of sides were varied and...included healthy options and the space was open and pleasant. We actually went back the next day!More

I used to like this location a lot, even after moving farther away from it, having another Tender Greens branch closer to me, I would still drive longer to the Marina branch. However, things have changed at this place... for the worse, unfortunately. In my...last visits, food had been just okay and service was not as attentive anymore. But it got even worse... Last time was a few days ago for lunch. The place had just opened, but it felt like the woman taking the orders had been through something really bad. My friend asked a few questions about the menu and how things worked there, and this woman was so RUDE, responding with a complete lack of politeness, very unkind and with an awful attitude. I was back in line and watched the whole sequence of nastiness, so I stepped in and asked if she was upset, mad, or something, because she was being very rude. She looked at me and simply turned back and left the register. Then, someone else came and took her spot. No words were said, no apology, no acknowledgement, nothing! We decided to go elsewhere to spend our money, went to Irori Sushi, across the strip mall. That is very bad, Tender Greens! In case the basic rules of customer service have been forgotten: Kindness and politeness are essential when working with the general public, actually, when dealing with people in general. And this woman is your front liner, the first person your customers interact with, Tender Greens. Such bad vibe, sends a bad message.More

if you like salad and greens, food is ok. Nicoise Salad with tuna seems to be the best selection. Kids meals or ...not so good.

I must admit that the worst thing about this restaurant is - trying to FIND it! It is on the second floor near the Equinox gym. I was happy to see that there is an elevator nearby in the free parking structure. Now, onto the...food - the salmon, while not wild caught, is sustainably grown and tasty. The salad and brown rice were good as well. I stay gluten free so I just had a tiny taste of the corn bread - it smelled yummy - and though I wanted more, I stayed away. The agua fresca tasted like it was a weak pineapple water. It was refreshing.More

Fresh cauliflower soup was on the Fall menu. Very tasty. As was the butternut squash. The drifting server was very attentive, providing refills and clearing away dishes that were done. It's a bit chilly during the Fall and Winter if you sit by an open...door. There are many fresh items on the menu. I love their mind lemonade, which I had. Sometimes it takes a while for the line to move through and they do their best to keep people moving forward.More

The service was super-quick - they assembled a custom salad almost too fast ; ) Quality of the steak was great, as a nice topping to my salad

Open air seating or inside, and located on the second floor by stairs, elevator, or escalator, this is worth the stop. Good, fresh and light food. I ordered the veggie plate which included 4 veggies, and chose brown rice and a salad as my sides....Had a hibiscus iced tea to drink. Just delicious. It was pleasant seating outside. Bring the dog, it seems. Great location, good food.More

When you are on holidays and eating out, sometimes it's hard to find good food choices. When you've finally eaten one too many burgers/fries - check out Tender Greens! It has some wonderfully tasty and healthy eating options. Highly recommend this restaurant!

This spot is outside equinox and always a long line. But so worth the wait. The food is healthy and tasty. They have lots of veggie choices that are actually worth eating and substituting fries or mashed potatoes for as they are well flavored.

We’ve been walked by this place since it opened, but decided to try it after a workout. The formula is perfect; super fresh and healthy ingredients, large portions, reasonably priced and fast. I had the tuna nicoise salad for $12, a fifty cent premium over...the regular salad. For that they added three huge chunks of seared (barely) tuna. People, that’s free! Compare that to grabbing a salad at Whole Foods and you’ll get the idea. You order at the register and at the end of the counter you pay and wait for your name to be called. You can get hot dishes too. Eat in or take out. OK, if you want wine there is no real choice, but we went with filtered water and a green monster smoothie. Then the amazing began. We had Vince the server in our area. He refused to allow us to carry our trays. He whisked one plate away because we didn’t get the dressing on the side as we had ordered. He must have stopped by five times to see if everything was OK and to refill water. Then he asked if we wanted things boxed. Mind you, this is not a high end steak house and the place was full. We were so shocked by the level of service we assumed he must be the manager. Turns out he was not. Not sure who trains and motivates these people but they should bottle it.More
