I'm here at least 3 day a week and it's a great place for a lot of options. You can get food for a party, a single meal or a few days of food. Frequent diners card through Lettuce helps get a free meal every now and then. Always fresh food and always loud music (which is the down fall). Good place to stop in if you do not want to cook!

The pasta station was very good. Asia station was only ok. Service did leave something to be desired. Had to ask for enough silverware for all and then we got back with our food 2 settings were gone. Easy to spend more than you realize.

Very interesting stations to move around in, including bbq, asian, and everything in between. Food is OK, and it's worth a stop for reasonably priced casual fare if you're at Water Tower Place.

This was a fantastic place to take a group of 50 high school seniors. Many restaurants would not accommodate a large group of kids, but foodlife was perfect. Many of the students thought it was the highlight of their trip. Great food, and a ton of choices: chicken, tacos, pasta, salad, burgers, desserts, CREPES! All delicious!! $19 per student during lunch time. Will take any of my future senior groups there.

I like the diversity of the food stations.. Somewhat closed-in feeling, dark, cave-like ambiance. Service charge automatically added to the bill.
