“Simple, lovely fresh tasting healthy food at a reasonable price”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

Visited Tendergreens twice in Santa Monica and once in San Diego making it a firm favourite during our 3 week trip to California. This is just what we needed after all the pizzas and burgers etc that time in the States incorporates, beautiful salads and soups made from the freshest healthiest ingredients. The steaks were excellent as where the choice of vegetarian salads. It really made us want to go back for more and we did. Not only was the food great the choice of wines was good too and service very friendly. The only thing I would say is you need to bear in mind is that it is counter service and therefore not the kind of place you would go to for a relaxing lengthy meal. If you are looking for a simple quick meal however, you could make no better choice. I so wish we had one in London!

“Wonderful lunch place”
Reviewed December 22, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed the food so much we returned the next day to get salads to go before our flight home. Delicious food, very clean and simple. Love their grilled vegetables. Large airy dining area, reasonable prices, what's not to like.

“Always enjoy the fare”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

There is something for everyone here... I usually order a fresh salad with roasted vegetables. There are so many ways to eat healthy, hard to choose sometimes. And being gluten free is easy here. My L.A. friends love this place for lunch or dinner. Friendly service while waiting at the counter/line makes for an even better experience. I highly recommend.

“Looked amazing -”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

We wanted to eat here as the food looked great and the crowds spoke volumes for its popularity - however they have no kids menu and as our girls are quire yound (and picky) we opted not to try. Shame
