This place is wonderful-the food is clean, simple but somehow not, with its wonderful flavors blended as you like it. Wish Life Alive was closer to Boston-the delicious fresh food prepared with care, laid back atmosphere and kind staff makes you want to call it home.

wonderful restaurant -- food is fresh and delicious; a family favorite, and not all of us are vegetarians; <br /> <br /> tasty and unusual combinations of flavors with the best rice ever

I am not a vegetarian and I love this place, its food, and its eclectic staff. Never had bad anything here. The option of eating organic vegetarian is so nice. When I first dine there for lunch, I initially thought is was pricey but after a couple bites and thinking of the cost of organic foods, it was a fair value for the ingredients used. I will keep coming back for more.

We are totally focused on providing you with delicious, healing and totally organic whole meals, as affordably as possible. Food costs are high, especially organic quality food, so in addition to our large bowls we also offer less expensive half portions and sides. It is also our purpose and pleasure to serve you with mindfully and carefully with love. This is a meal by meal, moment by moment endeavor, that we work daily on, and must rely on you to help us with. We are thankful for forums like this to further our ability to understand how we are doing and improve. Clearly we need to work on our communications with individuals who have food allergies. Ongoing staff meetings have lead us to believe for the past five years that all of our team is very clear about the ingredients in each of our offerings (since we all make the organic food ourselves, by hand, everyday). We do not have the space or desire to list the ingredients of each offering, and therefore we ask that people with allergies tell us what they cannot eat, and we can offer safe options. If there is a breakdown or inconsistency we need to make changes. We have developed a staff training handout to ensure everyone knows options for allergies. At the same time, we must ask our customers with allergies to inform us of them. We have a small kitchen, and know that if peoples' lives are threatened by specific allergies, then they should not consume our food. We wash all surfaces and equipment after each use, but can never be sure whether a nut piece might have travelled somewhere hidden for a time! Please know that our reason for being is to nurture and feed your vitality. Your feedback is our chance to succeed. Thank you!

This is one of my favorite places to eat in Lowell. If you like good, healthy food and want to give your body something it will love you for, this is the place. Try the Green Goddess - best dish on the list (IMHO)

Food allergy suffers should avoid this restaurant until Life Alive can straighten out inconsistencies with food prep and staffing. I've had several bad experiences with order mix-up, ingredient contamination, etc. However, this is an excellent food option for Vegans and Vegetarians in the Lowell area without special dietary needs. Downside to this urban oasis is INCONSISTENCY. As a food allergy sufferer I hope they can work out their inconsistencies-so I can enjoy their good food.

Great food, wonderful atmosphere, not a cheap place for lunch. Still, if you want great healthy food, this is the place to go. Almost everything is vegan. The smoothies are wonderful!

My wife and I found this gem of a restaurant about a year and a half ago next to the Revolving Museum on Middle Street in downtown Lowell. What a find! <br /> <br /> The food is all organic and all vegetarian (vegan options as well) but don't rule this restaurant out if your a meat eater -- the smoked garlic lemon tofu is delicious alternative to meat. The owner is a nutritional expert; balanced meals with the freshest organic ingredients of the season are sure to recharge your spirit and tantalize your taste buds. <br /> <br /> Indoor and outdoor seating is available and you'll find both beautifully relaxing and recharging. The staff is very friendly as well and their love for food shows in the preparation of every meal.<br /> <br /> Check their hours before you go for diner. They're open later on Thursdays.<br /> <br /> Favorite Dish: The Goddess<br /> A nurturing blend of smoked tofu, short grain brown rice, steamed carrots, beets, broccoli, and dark greens surrounded by our zesty Ginger Nama Shoyu dressing.<br /> <br /> Favorite Drink: Life Alive juice<br /> Apple, Beet, Celery, Carrot, Parsley, and Wheatgrass<br /> Drink Vitality. A powerful living-multi vitamin, It boost immunity, detoxifies your body and gives you sustainable energy.
