It is a great place to go for a healthy meal that is also tasty. You need to be into health food to like it, though.

I really love this place. I eat here almost every day. I've never been disappointed by anything I've ordered. However, work pays for my lunches and in no way would I eat here every day if I had to pay out of my own pocket.

I recently brought my small town, omnivorous Aunt to Real Food Daily. She was visiting me here in Santa Monica and was easily entertained by all the hustle and bustle. I was hesitant to even mention the fact that RFD is began. I thought

This place is so good. I crave it all the time and I'm not even vegan or vegetarian. The salad with the soba and the Caesar wrap are my favorite dishes. The prices are moderate but that's what you pay for higher quality food.

I've heard about Real Food Daily a number of times from co-workers and friends, vegans and non-vegans and felt that it was time to make a foray into the meatless underworld. Light wood colored and minimalist dining room greeted us today

Pros: Surprisingly good flavors, healthy organic food.

Cons: There's no meat...malnourished vegans at next table made me wanna rub them with a steak

I have given this restaurant ample opportunity to change my mind over the last 5 years, but I've finally given up. I have a friend who is Vegan, so we go to RFD Santa Monica every time she visits, and each time I say, "Never again." But,

When we are just pooped-out and tired after a long day's work, and we just don't have the energy to cook at home, we will drive over to RFD on Santa Monica Blvd - the food is hot and nutritious, satisfying and delicious - the wait staff

They don't do reservations for after 7. And they'll let you wait for an hour or more if you have a group of 5. They don't have a really good policy - about 10 groups that came after me jumped ahead. It's just a very small place that's

The food was whatever. Nothing really special or memorable. The servers are very helpful for first time diners...they have a bar & is near the 3rd st. so you can work off that food!

the servers did seem a bit selective with who they

By far the freshest and most satisfying food anywhere. Try the SM location or the one up the street from the Beverly Center. You are missing out on the best of L.A. if you've never gone to Real Food Daily!

Often healthy means lacking in flavor but not at Real Food Daily. I almost always order Stir it Up with either the rice or the noodles and it's heaven every time. Even the tofu cheesecake and cookies with no sugar, chocolate, dairy, etc.

I love Real Food Daily. The food is fresh and so delicious, particularly considering it's vegetarian. I recommend the faux-reuben sandwich, and you must try the mashed potatoes. Amazing. Although it sounds odd, the water here is amazing. They triple filter it and it's so delicious I could just drink that all day!

This is my absolute, favorite restaurant. I am a vegan and this place has the best mock "meats" I have ever had. The service is pretty good and you can actually drink the water, they must have some great filtration system. My favorites

I am not a vegetarian, but I love all types of food and they have some very delicious foods at RFD. If you find yourself in Santa Monica on Third St. and you want to grab some food and your group includes vegans or vegetarians, this is the place to go. The only drawback is that the place is not that big and gets very crowded on the weekends.

I'm not vegan, and might never be one. But if there's one place that's given me hope that suffering doesn't necessarily come with giving up meat, eggs and dairy, this place is it. I recommend trying the Basic 3, a dish that allows you to choose 3 items on their menu of 12 items. The peanut sauce is divine, as is the tofu. On top of that, prepare yourself for a killer dessert at the end of the meal, and yes, you'll have to remind yourself that everything is vegan.

Best vegan fare in Los Angeles. All the food has a gourmet quality to it, and is made with mostly organic ingredients. The Japanese cold noodles are great, as is the TV dinner. Be sure to get some carrot juice as well. The Nachos and Pate are very good appetizers, and the Caesar is a good salad. The Potato Salad is amazing! Desserts are great, especially the Chocolate Cake, Pecan Pie, and Macaroon. The waitresses are very cute.

PROS: All the dishes are tasty, weekly specials are good.
CONS: A bit pricey.
