A friend and I tried, yet again, to enjoy lunch at LYFE. While it may appeal to locals because of convenience, the food just isn't inspired. Our server couldn't have bothered with 2 middle aged ladies, and it was loud. This is just not the place to have a healthy lunch and conversation. Maybe takeout to the park?

This place was excellent when it opened and for a few years, but now it is very empty and food menu has changed and gone down. They removed the best item on the menu, grilled artichokes, were to die for/live for! Last time I ate there we had to send the food back...soggy sweet potato fries, and cold veggie burger.... More

Many of my friends and family like this place. Ive been there twice now in an attempt to have it grow on me, but I just don't like the food there. I found everything there dry and flavorless. The best thing I had there was the tortilla chips and the margarita flat bread. The side of squash and Brussel sprouts... More

I loved the vibe at Lyfe Kitchen. Everything was mindful, fresh, tasty etc. I loved the flatbread (gluten free - mine with mushroom and goat cheese). Nice choice of interesting beverage options. Heaps of vegetarian options. Delicious dessert too. I'd quite happily go back for dinner tomorrow!

We had lunch for 2 adults and 1 kid: - Caesar kale with chicken - Caesar kale with salmon - flatbread with mushrooms and goat cheese - Burger with fries - 1 glass of wine $58 Best part was flatbread. Salad itself would be OK but was overdressed, but salmon killed it for me as it was overdone and cold.... More

I had a delicious meal at Lyfe while visiting Palo Alto. They were helpful to inform me of food allergen items- from being listed on the menu as well as the staff input. I have celiacs and have developed other food sensitivities as well so while I love food and eating out I recognize it's always a risk for me.... More

Excellent high quality foods, prepared with conscience. Lots of fresh produce, salads, smoothies/fresh juices, and everything tastes great. They offer gluten free, vegan, vegetarian, and some meat products raised with care (grass-fed, organic, etc.). Often has a line so prepare to order while in line, then they bring it to your table. Low key setting, with some outdoor sidewalk seating... More

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
