5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Okay, this is not a cheap place. They use top end ingredients and the staff is near flawless. Two salads and iced tea was $31. That said, the Atmos is pleasant and the food quality is second to none.

Great food, lots of options and good size portions. Healthy food, and still have lots of dessert and beer/wine choices if you want to splurge. I especially like their drink menu, lots of juices, kambucha, teas.

The first thing I noticed is EVERYONE is so friendly! What a change from the usual! Smiles everywhere! That set such a positive, welcoming tone for this visit. Service was very efficient. The food was delicious and plentiful. I actually felt good about eating out. While knew healthy food dining could be so good?!

Salads like nowhere else with the freshest ingredients and herbal soft drinks. I've been to both Liberty Station and Mission Valley locations and love them both.

My friend took me here and we loved it. You order from the counter first then wait to pick up your food. Lots of salad choices, sandwiches, soup, with great ahi and other protein! We chose to eat out on the patio... Only problem was we were in the airport flight path and I counted 18 planes that flew over... More

Great food , management doesn't seem to take this wonderful franchise seriously. Chef staff Loud and rude , manager didn't care or do anything about it . The locations in Los Angeles are 5 star 100% of the time and have never had this experience before

I came into this restaurant expecting the best but was disappointed with the meal. I do understand the vegetables or fresh and they do use natural ingredients but the food lacked flavor. I ordered the chicken pot pie which looked tempting but it was very watery and more like soup and lacked flavor. My mother had the the "backyard steak"... More

I was invited to lunch and chose the Happy Vegan. It was remarkable. Four different vegan dishes arranged on a single plate, each as a small distinct portion on a shared bed of baby leaves. Four distinct tastes and textures. Full sensory entertainment. Light and good and fresh and delicious. With the added benefit of the Point Loma pause when... More
