3.0 star rating 4/1/2017 Disappointed with my lunch. The friend I was having lunch with is totally sold on this place, doesn't go anywhere else because of the ingredients they use. The place was jammed with a long line at 1:15! so it must mean that it is good. Unfortunately, I had a steak salad where the steak was tough,... More

I especially enjoyed the roasted vegetables.I ordered the steak each time and it was very tasty. They also serve very good coffee.

Great combinations to choose from as a plate, salad or sandwich. It's a soild concept. All the food combinations are healthy. Half of the offerings are vegetarian. Fun dessert options. Good for a group, so everyone gets to order something different to their liking. For lunch, it's a little more than one would expect.

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.
