    Very delicious food, even to a vegan skeptic. Wish it wasn't so humid in the restaurant.

    Best vegetarian option in the city imo. I normally do the fool! Need to experiment more with the smoothies.

    2015 Best Vegetarian Restaurant: "Just try “The Adventurer,” a mash-up of corn, beets, cruciferous veggies, cheddar, and sesame-ginger sauce over quinoa and rice and see for yourself."

    Wow. This place is amazing. Green Goddess bowl and do not skip that hot sauce. Downstairs is spacious and cool. Top 5 fave veggie places on my list.

    The green goddess (with almonds) hit the spot. Feel satisfied without the normal sluggishness. The place was very busy but the staff were efficient

  • Taejasvi N.

    Great place for vegan and vegetarian food, and the smoothies are so healthy. Everything is creatively presented in mason jars and little plates. Not to mention the garden in the bathroom... So hippie!

  • Y N.

    First time -Not very impressed. Food was good, but easily replicable@home. I was able to make Elvis Alive@home for < $3 for twice the quantity you get here. I would come back though to try more stuff

    Swami bowl.

    The Adventurer is my go-to, but I never regret trying something new. Nab some free smoothie samples as you wait.

    The Emperor Bowl was the most delicious food I ever put in my mouth.

    There's a reason this place is always busy. Order a Green Goddess bowl - even a demi size is enough to fill you up. It's a warm bowl of healthy yumminess!

    Ingrid Wong · December 12, 2014
  • Farida K.

    Like vegan food? Then this is the place for you. Like your meat? Stay away then.

    Farida Kaizar · December 8, 2014
  • Lane R.

    Avoid this place at lunchtime. You'll spend way more time waiting than eating

    Favorites: The Swami + Island Alive smoothie. Makes it easy to eat healthy- my carnivore husband likes the satisfying meals. Wish they had more space- nowhere to sit during rush times. Good prices.

    Jill Santiago · October 28, 2014
  • Kiran B.

    Adventure demi Burrell Will fill you up with delicious cheese, kale, and sesame ginger goodness

    Awesome smoothies. Still not in love with the seasoning and flavors in the bowls, but I know many who love it.

    Everything is great. The flourish alive smoothie with kombucha is weird and amazing.

    Take the Demi (portions are huge) Green Goddess with tofu and Quinoa instead of rice. then pour the spicy sauce at the water-self station and...go to heaven. Plus, can't go wrong with the Thrive Alive

    Alice 🐱 · August 19, 2014
  • Marguerite A.

    Green Goddess is my favorite. Order demi portions to try two dishes!

    Marguerite Avery · August 9, 2014
  • Jordan M.

    Any of the food here is great and make sure to grab a smoothie.

    Jordan Morano · August 6, 2014

    I love pretty much anything that can be eaten out of a bowl, which is why the Green Goddess, a blend of greens and brown rice and topped with a decadent shoyu ginger sauce, is my go-to steal at $9.25. Read more · August 4, 2014

    Pretty sure the Superhero Alive is the only thing that's kept me from getting sick after a couple weeks of traveling.
