This restaurant is buffet style all you can eat dining, but with healthier food options. The food here is pretty good, but it can get crowded during peak hours.

Sorry to say, the last few times I have eaten at the Souplantation, I have ended up getting sick. In addition, I found a long piece of hair in the soup I was eating. The place is disorganized and noisy and it does not make for a very good dining experience. Plus, as usual, parents let their children run around... More

Not my favorite place, they have decent food if you want only soup or salad, there are better restaurants that have soup and salad bars along with other items, Many times the soups are just too watery with little flavor or substance.

If you don't like the salad, that's you fault. I used to be a lousy salad maker. I try to put everything on it including mac and potato salad. take a few tries to learn how to make a good one. Clam Chowder is good, if the potatoes are fully cooked, not always though. I don't like the pasta dishes... More

Have always gone to the one in Camarillo Ca so expected it to be like that. It was not as good. The whole inside seemed a bit disjointed and you always seemed to be running into someone. Also there were constant line ups for the food. Love Greek salads but their authentic greek had no tomatoes or feta cheese. It... More

We have been going to this restaurant for 17 years. Our last visit was very disappointing. There was no cucumbers or carrots for your salad. They only had fat free ranch dressing. The mac and cheese was only mac. The sourdough bread looked like store bought. No soft serve ice cream. No salt and pepper on the tables. We will... More
