“Cafeteria style salads - cool concept”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

There were lots of choices (so many it was a bit confusing at first) but the servers were patient and helpful. Everyone in our group enjoyed their selections ... steak, chicken, fish.

“Absolutely Fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

When I saw the line stretching out the door I knew I was in for something great. I ordered the Mediteranean/Greek Salad with Ahi Tuna. It was perfect. The salad greens were fresh and tender, the olives and other veggies where perfectly matched with the dressing, and I could not have grilled the tuna (perfectly rare) any better. What a place.....wish we had one on the east coast!

“Don't Miss if you like fresh food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

There is no place in the City if you want an amazingly fresh salad. The selections are numerous, and the number of fresh veggies are incredibly good. The grilled meats are amazing (be sure to specify how well-done you'd like your meat/poultry/fish and they will oblige), and the desserts without compare! This is not a fancy place, but it's nice & modern, well worth a visit for someone who wants an excellent salad or soup-- and you can take a lovely walk on the bay before or after. Plenty of free parking if you're tired of fighting for a spot downtown.
Note: They could use a breakfast menu since you can't come before 11:00.
