This is a nice departure from the normal chain restaurant you find in malls. Many different stations. A bar, gelato, grilled meats and fish, salad bar, sandwiches and wraps. All are freshly prepared with fresh ingredients. Plenty of seating and great for families.

The cafeteria style format just does not work. The food is expensive and nothing we tried was worth the price. The one item I wanted (sushi) was not open. We went their a second time to see if it got better but it was even...More

This place is very well decorated, with a nice vibe. We were here for breakfast on a weekday and it was empty but I imagine it would be hopping at lunch and dinner. We had omlets and oatmeal, both were very good. The food all...More

I repeat, I don't get this place. It is open like a cafeteria, with a number of "stations" that each serves a type of food (deli sandwiches, pizza, sushi, stir fry, etc.). You go order, then line up to pay, and they bring out the...More

This place is a pathetic attempt at carrying out a Food Life concept. No one could give an understandable explanation for how to order, pay, etc. trays were sticky and disgusting, signs hanging over food prep areas were filthy and dusty. There were a million...More

I was really impressed the first time when came here-just a few days after they opened. I thought, wow, very similar to Marche in Toronto! Nice! Why the change? Everyone was confused what to do next. Do we wait for our food and pay-do we...More

Within one year of its opening, this place has gone from great possibilities to failed everything. You can't do something unique without extreme attention to educating your patronage and making them comfortable with your concept. As of yesterday, we entered, the entire system had changed,...More

Tired of saying "what do you want", winding up in a stalemate, and settling for a place that has a menu 3 miles long but gives you fair food because it's the same people preparing the steak as the pizza? This concept is the 21st...More
