“Simple concept, farm to table, great food”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Tender Greens is one of our favorite casual restaurants in town. As San Diegans, we always take our out of town guests to Tender Greens for a wonderful meal.

The concept is simple, the food is fresh - organic farm to table - meals are delicious, and the value is incredible. Choose either beef, chicken, fish, or vegi, and have it served as either a plate, sandwich, or salad. You watch it being made fresh as you order.

The atmosphere of the old, renovated Liberty Station is wonderful with 18(?) foot ceilings and tall windows to match. Walk around Liberty Station to see what all it offers, and enjoy the waterfront park as well. I highly recommend Tender Greens for lunch or dinner.

“What an experience!”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

I was very apprehensive when my partner asked if we could go to Tender greens, viewing myself as one of life's carnivores rather than an omnivore. However, I had my fill of red meat over the lat few days so decided it was OK to go for a salad. We arrived and the cafeteria style line up was unorthodox but you got to watch your food being freshly prepared and all was good. Very good value for money and tasted amazing. All in an a fantastic experience I would be happy to repeat again and again.

“such beautiful creations,”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

so fresh & lightly dressed, freshly made vinaigrettes, roasted vegetable.
everything from seared ahi, plank steak & mashed potatoes & soup or sandwich & salad combinations. Desserts are even better than they look. I rarely order dessert after dinner.
