The salads are amazing, but they are pretty pricey for the portions. The squash soup was also delish and totally not filled with cream and other fillers. I saw a lot of roasted seasonal veggies and roasted cauliflower going around too.

It seems like a very healthy place to eat. Lots of tempting vegetables, meat and what look like delicious desserts.

Tender Greens has lost its umph. The last two times we have taken food out there have been problems. One time we asked for grilled Vegas and we received a piece of corn instead of the mixed Vegas we asked for. Last night I ordered the steak which they make a point of telling you comes medium rare and is... More

I've been here at least 6 times in the past year. I'd go more often if I could for lunch! Fresh, creative salads and sandwiches, counter style ordering (can be a little confusing the first time). They offer tried and true menu items they've created but you can personalize any dish as well. Staff is really nice and helpful. Plenty... More

Got a large take-out order for family, which included a vegetarian (me), some meat and fish lovers, and a few exasperatingly picky eaters. Tender Greens satisfied all. It's a bit pricey, but the food is good with enough variety for all.

This is a good place to go if you are in a hurry and want some decent food for lunch. Not gourmet by any means, but it seemed fresh, and the price point was very good. It can get a bit crowded, so either get there early or wait until the lunch crowd dissipates a bit.

Brought here by a local that I work with, after I told him that I was craving a good salad for dinner. In fact, he said, "I know exactly the place!" Now, I'm not vegan; not even vegetarian. But I love good rabbit food. They specialize in salads and they really do them right. Outstanding selection, over-the-top quality, and intricate,... More

Went here for lunch and it was good. Reasonably priced, large portions and quick service. The falafel I got didn't look crash hot next to my friends who got the chicken sandwich, but it was really good and filling.

It was my first time at this chain restaurant, and I was very pleased. The prices are very reasonable and the food is so fresh. I had a big plate (you can have various Big Salads) with seared rare Ahi Tuna, a Cesar salad and creamy mashed potatoes. It was delicious. My friend had a big salad with sliced steak... More
