What We're All About

DON'T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT

Awesome healthy choices (vegan too). YUM. The carrot chili vinaigrette is bomb. I always create my own (half grain/half green bowl) then you get 4 veggie toppings and 1 protein. They have great variety of toppings. So much better than saladworks

Great food. Local, organic and grass fed beef broth. They have beef and chicken bone broth as well as vegetable broth. Their tomato basil soup is awesome. Love the steak and blue cheese salad.

So delicious and priced great. The staff is always quick and extremely friendly. The manager is always right behind the bar helping his employees. Staff and manager show a lot of respect for our military when they stop in for lunch which is heart warming and much appreciated.

Friendly service, extremely fresh ingredients. I was highly impressed by the quality and variety of nutritious soup, salads, homemade dressings and toppings as well as health conscience meat and meat alternatives! There is a vast variety of daily fresh made drinks available. Very clean and modern type atmosphere. Family friendly.

I am always up for a place where I can get food fast that is actually healthy. My husband a bowl that had poke. He was a little skeptical by the name when I suggested the restaurant, but now it is one of his favorites.

More healthy than Panera Bread and priced below Panera too! Better quality food as the food is organic and local when it can be.

Allergy conscious and responsible with full ingredient transparency.Great list of dishes or make your own. The amount of choices is staggering. The dressings are impressive in their creativity and composition. Proteins are succulent and juicy.Price is up there to be honest, but the sourcing and quality of ingredients makes this forgivable. I had the Spicy Ginger Steak & Rice Noodle Broth Bowl and honestly should have taken half of it home I was so full. Maybe other configurations are smaller than this, but when people review that portion size is inadequate per price I would have to heartily disagree.Some of the staff can be dismissive of your ingredient concerns which is off putting. They do ask you, however, at each point of assembly about the ingredients they are about to add to your meal. So maybe I am being too sensitive? No you are right, the establishment should cater 100% to the guest and not treat them like they are ignorant of their process. To that end, the wait in line can be pretty intimidating too. Honestly, some of the guests can make you feel like you are an outsider and don't belong there. My money is just as good as theirs and The Core Eatery is not an exclusive club.Kudos, Rich Hart, on your new endeavor. It is a quality concept that you have firing on all cylinders.read more

CoreLife has quickly become my favorite eatery. Typically you can't have HEALTHY and FAST, but you can at CoreLife. Amazing options that has helped me lose 25 lbs in 6 months! I personally like the Ginger Steak and Rice Noodles and the Tune Poke. The fresh juice combinations are also excellent! I highly recommend you paying them a visit!

I love how you can customize everything just to your liking. I've never had a bad experience coming to CoreLife. The only suggestion that I have would to maybe offer more of a variety of kid's options on the menu. It's hard to get toddlers to eat healthy, but thank you for your efforts!

It might look like it's just salad, but the flavor combinations even make this kale hater enjoy eating kale. And their soups and broths have so much flavor. When you first see their pricing, it may seem that it's a bit much for salad, but the portion sizes are bigger than you think. I'm not a small person and I find the medium to be very filling.

Fresh ingredients, prompt service, everything put together right in front of you, clean, organized, everything is gluten free, all ingredients disclosed, no guessing, matched up to my eating lifestyle perfectly (especially the availability of chopsticks!), very impressed, happy to have discovered this by accident 12? miles from my home. The large menu boards near the entrance help you figure out what you want before you reach the order counter, therefore newcomers are not put on the spot and can just take the time to be in awe. Love the real bowls, silverware, and stainless steel trays. No plastic or foam, chemical laden eatery materials. If you get their Lemonade's though, plastic cups are provided; I had Beet Lemonade. Overall very pleased. Can't wait to go back again and try another menu item.read more

The food was good. The beverage selection was wonderful. Expected to be greeted with more exuberance with a new eatery, but no extra interaction at all. Hardly a smile was seen.

The sriracha flavor / carrot dressing is very good. The menu is a little confusing.... Do I make my own or order one of the options on the menu / picture boards? I guess after a few more visits it makes more sense. I recommend going with an experienced friend

I thought the food was pretty good here. The prices are a little bit high for the small bowls. The line moved slowly but I did like my meal so it was worth waiting

Love the healthy choices. The young workers may seem a little off track sometimes as it keeps getting passed along but there is a manager helping out and keeps things moving. On both occasions we had things missing from our order - such as the grain/greens salad never got the grains on but it was fixed. I am disappointed that the platters are not offered as stated in the menu as well as roasted vegetables as posted. Since its new it may take time to get the "bugs" worked out to run more smoothly so there isn't confusions when checking out. Everything else is great! Will be backread more

Live the healthy options offered by Core Life.. much needed alternative to the abundant burger and pizza joints around. My favorites are the tuna poke and the Thai Chicken bowl. Will say though that on this visit the area where people drop off they bowls and utensils was so overloaded, that a poor lady behind us had a tall stack of bowls almost land on her as they all fell over. The even crazier part was that despite the loud noise, not a single employee came over to help her or make sure she was ok. Clearly management forgot to assign a clean up person for this shift. Hopefully not a sign of future deterioration.read more

After the first time I are here I found myself wanting to come back because the food is so clean and crisp. Employees are very friendly and outgoing Only complaint is the tables are usually dirty.

The servings could be larger and there could be less kale on the menu, but everything I've tried tastes great. The tuna poke bowl is my favorite, and I love the selection of fountain drinks - lots of flavors I don't see anywhere else (apple cider green tea and beet lemonade are standouts).

I decided to give CoreLife a try and I was pleasantly surprised. I tried a cup of the vegetable broth (my favorite - very flavorful) and a chicken and rice noodle broth bowl. I thought the portion size was pretty generous. I recommend the cranberry cayenne lemonade. The line did seem a bit confusing, but my order came out correct. My suggestion is to try it with an open mind.

Great place to eat healthy. Poke bowl and flank steak bowl are very good. The lemonade is the best I have tasted. All ingredients are very fresh. The only draw back is that they use a steamer to heat the soup. If you do get soup ask them to steam it twice otherwise it will be cold to lukewarm.

Fresh, healthy food in just the right proportion. Kids ate their food without too much complaining, though they rejected the weird juices. I'm happy to have a meal option that is reasonable and not deep fried!

At our first visit, we were not familiar with the options. I think that we could put together some really good vegetarian food with all of the fresh healthy ingredients that are available. We just didn't want to hold up the customers behind us trying to figure out how. We'll go again, but not during a busy time. Customers are directed to choose 3 things, I think, this is not like Subway or Chipotle where you pick as many things as you want. Though I feel that the quality of the ingredients is a step up. Drink selection is interesting in a good way.read more
