I go out of my way to eat here. It's amazing. Everything is fresh, the Mint Lemonade is so good, the butterhead salad is delicious, everything - seriously. GO.

I like the seared tuna with mashed potatoes and tender greens as sides. Can't really beat it for the quality and price in Santa Monica.

A fast-food that wants to be a fine dining place.
Excellent salads, meats are average, chicken soup is very good.
Very cheap but healthy and of decent quality. Often crowded.

Second time we have eaten here. The 'greens' side of the menu is very good. Salads and veggies are excellent. But wherever the chicken comes from should be changed because the fried chicken is better at KFC - and that's not so hot. Everything else was good.

Sure it's kinda fast food, but it's unusually good food too. Steak salads, roasted chicken or seared tuna, all very nice--there's usually one cook on the steak detail, another finishing the salads, still another doing the rice or polenta or mixed vegetables, a whole army lined up to keep it moving, your wait mininal, and your food hot and tasty. It's all very healthy too, soup and fresh salad choices along with various veggie dishes. But yes, they have nice desserts (carrot or olive oil cakes, brownies and cookies, etc.) along with wine and beer too. You get your dinner tray at the register, pay, then find a nice tabke to enjoy a good (not quite great) fresh meal at a very reasonable price. Outlets vary, the Tender Greens in Santa Monica is considerably nicer and brighter than the gloomy one in Westwood. If you're in a hurry, you probably can't do much better than this--unless you really have to have pizza or another artery-clogging burger. I like those too on occasion, but visit Tender Greens much more often. Give them a try, you'll be back again and again too!
