I'm here on business and was looking for delivery options other than pizza or chinese. When I saw Lyfe and their relatively healthy menu, I was pretty excited to see they delivered! Keeping in mind it was delivery, I opted out of the flatbreads and instead got the buffalo chicken wrap that seemed to be quite unique in comparison to... More

LYFE Kitchen is my family's go-to restaurant. The food is high quality, non-gmo, and prepared in a healthful way. Very thoughtful menu offers tasty choices for carnivores, vegans, vegetarians and gluten- and dairy-free eaters. Fast service, fair prices.

Disclaimer : I do not really care much for the health food fad about eating non-GMO, organic , healthy blah blah blah type of food. I'm not one of THOSE people, so take that in mind when reading this review. We came here because my wife liked the place and as a good husband, i decided to oblige. It was... More

The Lyfe Kitchen offers a nice variety of lunch options, including gluten free and vegan options. The flat bread was very good (gluten free) and the salmon plate was done just right.

The emphasis here is on the quick turn of your meal from the cash register to your table, but they continue to provide tasty and healthy bowls and plates to order. A favorite is the salmon plate that usually comes over different grains and vegetables. Drinks include a strong, no fake flavoring, iced tea.

We had lunch at Lyfe Kitchen in Palo Alto and enjoyed the healthy fresh food and fast service. We enjoyed the outdoor patio for eating accented with beautifully potted flowers.

I like the open air feel of the restaurant. I like their Herb wall. Service is great, you order from the counter and they give... More

If you are looking for some healthy food while at Palo Alto (Stanford University), then visit the LYFE kitchen. I ordered a grilled chicken bowl and it was full of veggies and 6-7 pieces of chicken. The service was fast and I was served within 7-8 min after I placed my order. The only downside is it's too expensive. I... More

My wife and I have passed by LYFE Kitchen near downtown Palo Alto numerous times over the past few years. Tonight we thought we'd finally give it a try. We looked at the menu and thought to ourselves, this might work for us; my wife's a vegetarian, and I stick to an ultra-low-carb diet. While the low carb offerings at... More
