It's so nice to see such a health focused place in the states. Lyfe has something for everybody, and even convinced me (a hardcore meat eater) to go for some vegan options. Honestly, their plant based meat substitutes are really nice and if this place was in London, I would eat here regularly to cut down on my meat intake.... More

Gluten-free options galore - I've tried the Maui fish tacos and the Farmhouse burger. Delicious! Never missed any flavor or texture with the gluten-free options. Orders placed at counter, served to table within 15 minutes - so easy to get in a quick lunch. Indoor and outdoor seating available. This place was busy with a young hip crowd. Takeaway orders...

There are several chains like this in California -- healthy food at reasonable prices. Beer and wine license too (I live in New England and states here make it so difficult for fast casual places to sell beer and wine). Great menu. Good food. Good size portions. Great place!

We went here last year and really enjoyed the food. This time was not very good. The food was super slow and then not very warm. Disappointing. The staff were constantly talking and hanging out while we stood waiting.

If you have one friend who's vegan, another who's allergic to gluten, and another who just wants real meat for their protein, this is your spot. Something for everyone here! We had grilled brussel sprouts as a starter, which were DELICIOUS. Then we shared two flatbreads, which were gluten-free and also very tasty. I had a mocha, another person had... More

We always go to LYFE whenever friends and I are feeling guilty and health conscious day after at all-you-can-eat (insert ethnicity here) restaurant. I only have tried their salads and they are the freshest in town. Who knew caesar salad could be so crispy and succulent.

I was expecting more from this place. I was excited to see lots of healthy options, but the flavor profiles were a bit bland and my sweet potato fries were soggy, so that left me a bit disappointed. The place was packed though and it was hard to find a seat, so they're doing something right!

Three of us had a very nice lunch on Sunday at Lyfe Kitchen after a morning of heavy shopping for the birthday lady. It was 1:30 p.m., the restaurant was 3/4 full, and we got in just before the big crush behind us. Lyfe must be doing something right to bring in the crowds. My lunch was gluten-free. There was...

I recently had lunch here with a friend. It's like a semi-fast food place - you stand inline to place your order and the food would be brought to your table. I had their BBQ chicken flatbread. It was very tasty, and my friend's salmon was good as well. The place gave out a very refreshing and young vibe. I... More
