The cobb salad that I had for dinner was the best ever! The next day I went back for lunch and it was great too. The oatmeal raisin cookie that I had was delicious as well. Very nice and courteous staff.

I understand it is a franchise, but there are none near me, so coming here is a treat. You can get food quickly, but it's real food. You have choices of sides and greens, entrees, I can't imagine anyone not being pleased with the choices. I was in the mood for soup. There were two choices. I was allowed to... More

Stroll through the line and make your choices to a friendly cashier. You get to the end there's your food. Fast and delicious. I had the ahi tuna with a butter lettuce salad and some of the best mashed potatoes I've had. Forget something? Want more water? A friendly helper will get it for you. I'd eat here every day!

After visiting Point Loma and the Cabrillo National Monument, we stopped for a quick lunch here. They had many salad dishes which were fresh, but a little expensive. You order your food, get a number and they deliver it to your table. We sat outside to enjoy the weather, however the proximity to the airport made for planes flying overhead... More

First time visitor which was pleasantly surprised by this place. Ate here during a recent stay in the San Diego area. It was a rainy night so could not sit outside but there was enough space inside. Tender Greens has a nice vibe and focusses on healthy and locally sourced options. I opted for tomato soup (great quality and taste)... More

We found this restaurant through trip advisor and were not disappointed. We both ordered the happy vegan and split an order of grilled mixed veggies. The happy vegan plate was excellent with a really nice variety of food. The grilled mixed veggies were excellent tasting but came luke warm, which was disappointing. The food wasn't cheap, but certainly comparable to... More

Have eaten here many times. Local food and creative meals. You can customize your meal. Salads, full plates, sandwiches, etc. All good.

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.
