Never been to Santa Monica and needed a quick meal, went in with a friend, she had soup and I had a salad. Delicious and fresh. Personally it had much to much dressing but was full of great vegetables, good portion and delicious

What a tremendous, open air environment filled with wonderful food and quick service. You watch the proteins cooked right in front of you and huge salads created simultaneously. Love it.

The harvest salad varies as veggies are available. Always a very busy place and has indoor and outdoor dining. Order in one place and follow down the lane and pay at the end after your order is complete.

I love Tender Greens. Their steak and chicken, with baby spinach and mixed veggies is out of this world. Delicious for less than $12!

This place always has a line since the food is very good. They use fresh ingredients and get the food out very fast. My only complaint is that the food portions for the pricing could be a bit bigger. Service is great and quick.

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
