First Review by myhealing


Looked online and I saw that I needed to expect to wait a while for my food and I had 2 hours to kill so I figured I would give it a try... AND I AM SO HAPPY I DID!! It isn't more than 15 minutes from the airport and everything I got was AMAZING! Plus I didn't wait that long... maybe 15 or 20 minutes. Not more than any other restaurant. Now, I was the only person in the place, but if there was a wait, it would have been worth every second!! The staff is soooooo nice, accommodating, and helpful making the experience that much better(: The menu prices may look high but the quality and the large portion sizes make up for that! And again, the flavor makes it worth every penny (:

There are very few healthy vegan options in Atlanta but this place is a jewel

Pros: area is misleading

Cons: everything is wonderful!!

Raw'licious Food - Edit

I loved the food, healthy, tasty and great presentation.

I had the Nachos, the portabella steak, walnut brownie and a Irish moss drink all of which I shared with my 3 kids. It's a nice ambiance in the restaurant. A great place to take friends and family.


Cons: Prices

great food, slow, great food - Edit

I agree with other reviewers here, food is excellent but be prepared to wait! I ordered take out, took my time to get there 50 minutes after ordering and still waited 30minutes for food....soooo worth the wait though! And no worries about your food getting cold ; )

Wonderful - Edit

OMG--LOVE this place! I stopped by tonight close to closing time and got dinner to go. The Tostado was unbelievable and without a doubt, the most flavorful raw entree I've had during my raw journey the past 2 months!!! The server was absolutely delightful and helpful. I'm not sure about the other reviewers' experiences, but she was welcoming and quick to help me. I will definitely be back!!

Pros: All raw, Extensive menu, Friendly service

Cons: Parking on side a little dark at night

The Wait From Hell Fades When The Food Arrives - Edit

Slow, slow, slow your boat gently down the stream. Merrily, merrily, merrily the wait is hella extreme! We waited so long that the seasons changed. The service is so slow that I literally forgot what I had ordered. Here's the truth about Lovin' It Live. The wait is aweful. The service is unengaging and nonchalant. But the food will set you right! The food is consistly good. Been going for years and never had a bad meal so I keep going back. Now make sure you got a good job or your own business balling and even with that take your nitro-glycerine because the prices will give you a heart attack. It's definitely uptown compared to Tassili's (yuck). At Lovin' It Live after you grow accustomed to the "process" it's kinda like the soup nazi on Seinfeld. You go in, you don't make eye contact after you order and you graciously wait. Once your food arrives, you are happy as heck. The place is intimate and has a great vibe and nice art pieces. Again, understand the rules of engagement and the food will definitely shine.

Pros: Good vibe, Excellent Raw Experience, Fresh and Organic

Cons: You Could Install A Transmission Faster, Calling Ahead Is Like You Never Called, Not For the Snap Benefits Crowd

Amazing Raw Vegan!!! - Edit

This place is cute in an artsy vintage way with AMAZING food! It's not cheap, but worth every penny and surprisingly filling. I had the sage lasagna and my kids had sage burgers. We all loved our food. The sorrel/hibiscus tea was unbelievable. The stuffed avocado was delicious as well.

I really enjoyed the decor and the friendly and knowledgeable staff. We were told by a friend to order in advance or expect a long wait, but the wait was fine. I let the server know we were on a schedule and had no problems with service. I can't wait to visit again! Yummy!!!

Pros: Delicious!

Delish food but wait is DISGUSTING! - Edit

I love this food. It is soooo good. I learned back in 07 to call ahead. I moved away from the area for a while, but immediately begin to frequent again once I came back. However, the wait issues have not changed. I called in my order, got there 2 hours later and still had to wait 30 minutes for my food to be ready. I ate it all up once I got home with a smile on my face though. I love the food but the wait is disgusting!

Pros: Nachos on point, desserts are heaven, juices yummy

Cons: Horrible Wait, wait, wait

wonderful - Edit

This restaurant is very quaint. The food is the best I've tasted and everything is vegan. It is a little expensive, but totally worth the cost.

Pros: food, staff, atmosphere

good, for sure - Edit

We came late and there was no other people there. We decided to eat anyway, and there's no regrets. Ordered salad for starter. Perfectly dressed and served at room temp. Very tasty with a lot of acidity, but still, with taste of the lettuce.
Had the pizza for main. It was good. Well seasoned to hot(sort of). All fresh, all tasty.
Service was a bit slow/super laid back, but very kind. Guessing it had to do with the philosophy of it all; Let the food be your medicine!

Pros: taste, heart

Cons: closes early, not the most charming setting

My favorite!!! - Edit

When I lived in ATL I went to this restaurant every chance I got. I loved the stuffed avocado boats, the tostados, and tacos. The only disappointment about this restaurant is that not all the menu items are always available. Naturally, the restaurant is expensive being that it's a raw restaurant-- but the flavor you get is well worth it.

Pros: 100% vegan, RAW, delicious

Cons: pricey, menu items are not always available

Best Raw Foods Restaurant - Edit

The staff is so friendly at Lov'n It Live! I had a great time with friends, and we ordered the platter, which consisted of a mock chicken dish, sage burger (amazing), pizza dish...and all to say this was all raw vegan! They have come up with creative ways to attract the public to raw foods and juices. We also had a mango cheesecake (it would be nuts as the base instead of actual cream cheese), and it was the exact consistency it needed to be. The menu is great, so it offers something for everyone. They also have fresh juices and smoothies as well.

Pros: Excellent Food-Five Stars!, Friendly Staff, Nice Atmosphere/Cozy

Cons: None, None, None

Delicious! - Edit

I am in love with this organic raw vegan restaurant. I will go back. I can't get enough of the fantastic food. The waitress was very helpful. I told her my food allergies and the chef whipped me up a delightful meal with no problem.

Pros: organic, raw , delicious

Yum-o! - Edit

My spouse, sister and I went to Lov'n It Live for lunch. All the food is fabulous! The soups are divine and I loved the kale salad. Don't miss the strawberry pie it is to die for.

I look forward to going back, every time I visit Atlanta! My spouse, sister and I all have food allergies to a combination of foods: basil, dried herbs, soy, all beans, all grains, peanuts, milk, cayenne pepper, black pepper and eggs. The waitress was very accommodating. I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone on the planet! The organic raw vegan food is worth every penny!

Worth every penny. Delicious! - Edit

I stopped here for lunch and ordered a kale salad, longevity soup, sage burger and a slice of mango pie. Every bite was delicious. I have several food allergies and the owner was very accommodating. My only regret is that this restaurant is not in Dallas Texas.

Pros: healthy, organic, live, allergy friendly

Great Find! This is the real McCoy! - Edit

Wow... as a recent convert to a plant-based diet, I am eager to find really healthy, quality food that helps me in my transition to the my new way of eating. Well, I can't say enough about Lov'n It Live. Immaculate place, smiling, happy server and food that left me with taste buds in a frenzy and a most happy, happy belly when I was done. I had their spinach salad with tomatoes that were out of this world. I also had their "slice" of pizza which is quite possibly one of the most tasty I have every had. People should seek this place out and give it a try. My plan is to tell as many friends as I can about it. Given its location, it may need a little extra support... of which it is certainly worthy based on my experience tonight.

Pros: Super Clean, Quality ingredients, Delicious beyond my expectations

Cons: Need some less expensive beverage option

Best meal in Atlanta - Edit

We came to Atlanta from New Orleans and planned to stop here just for a slice of pie. We left with 2 slices of pie, cookies, and two entrees! There was so much flavor in everything and the service was fantastic and super friendly. We love this place and wish it was in New Orleans!

Pros: delicious food, spiced just right, friendly service

OMG, this place is so good! - Edit

I'm not used to raw foods, although I am vegan--so I can definitely appreciate the raw movement.

I went to the restaurant on Thursday and I loved it. It got the spirulina juice, a delicious salad with ginger dressing, and these sage burgers. Everything on the menu was living and had never been cooked. It was fantastic. They really know how to use their vita-mix and dehydrator.

What I love about this place is that it's 3 miles from the airport. So if you're flying in or out of Atlanta, it's the perfect place to get a great lunch or dinner.

Pros: tasty, beautiful, quality

Cons: expensive, didn't take credit cards

Some of the best food I have ever had in my life! - Edit

We recently stopped at Lov'n It Live while driving through Atlanta on a 5,000+ mile road trip from Tucson, AZ to Wilmington, NC & back. Everyone there was very friendly. The lady who took our order recommended the stuffed avocado, which was seriously one of the best things I have ever eaten in my life, as was the strawberry pie. We also got the tostada, nachos, & mango pie. All the food was wonderful, but the stuffed avocado & the strawberry pie were definitely my favorites. The owner of the place came out to meet us when he heard we were traveling so far, & another staff member came out from the back, too. They all wished us a safe trip & were just so, so nice. The food does take a while to prepare, but I was already aware of that from other reviews, plus there is also a sign at the counter that says to allow at least 30 minutes. They did get our food out right in about 30 minutes, maybe even a little less, & it was definitely worth it. If we're ever in or traveling through the Atlanta area again we will be sure to go back here!

Pros: Amazing food, Extremely friendly staff, Peaceful atmosphere

Love It - Edit

Two years ago I ate at this restaurant when I visited Atlanta. It is the best food ever!! You do not miss cooked food and as a raw food enthusiast I have stopped eating at other raw restaurants (which I only tried once because they do not come close to Lov'n It Live) and am living and saving in the hopes of taking 5 courses at Lov'n It Live!! This restaurant is a treasure. Oh, I must add nice ambience.

Pros: excellent food, healthy cuisine, friendly staff

As close to perfect as it gets - Edit

I picked Lov'n It Live for lunch today mostly due to it's proximity to the airport. I've had mixed experiences with raw foods, so I wasn't really sure about even going there. The atmosphere is very pleasant- nice art & music, and the staff was extremely nice. And the food was an experience that has me wanting to take cooking classes there so I can eat like that every day. I was simply blown away by the food. I had a sample platter with the sage burger, Tostado, kale salad, and spagetti. It was a ridiculous amount of food for one person, but I wanted to try a variety of foods. Next time I will have the Tostado or sage burger. Everything was very flavorful and beautifully presented.

The food is not very quick, but it was 10 minutes quicker than they told me it would be. Everything is prepared as you order it.

After 1 lunch I rank this among my favorite few restaurants ever.

Pros: Amazing flavors, Beautiful presentation, Great staff and enviroment

Cons: Not fast food

had to try it - Edit

I have been a vegan for 2 years now (vegetarian 16 yrs before that)and just recently thought about a raw diet. I was interested in trying everything and so was my friend and so we shared a sampler. I thought everything was amazing and my friend said if she could eat the nutloaf everyday she would never have to eat meat again. We also had the lasagna, the tostada, and a slice of pizza. For dessert, we has the strawberry coconut pie and again were amazed. Since we knew we would be hungry after the concert we got the nachos to go. We ate all the leftovers and the nachos when we got back to the hotel and it was still some of the best food I have ever had. Will definately be going back.

Pros: server was wonderful about answering ?s, good recommendations by staff, large portions

Cons: kind of difficult to find

Wow! Atlanta's got a great raw foods restaurant! - Edit

My husband and I flew to Atlanta as his birthday surprise, to take a raw foods cooking class at Loving it Live. We were way more than pleasantly surprised, in fact we were awed and impressed beyond words. The food at Loving it Live was beautifully presented, and tasted incredible, from the nachos to the stuffed avocado, the pizza, nori and collard rolls, the pine nut cheese sauce, mock chicken salad, kale salad, cashew hummus, and best of all, the yummy spice cake and pumpkin seed "ice cream" for dessert. We are foodies, having traveled and eaten all over the world. Loving It Live was by far, hands down, the best vegetarian food we've tasted. The longer-than-typical restaurant wait was because everything was lovingly and individually created to order. We sipped great drinks during our wait: mine was hybiscus, my husband's was lemon. All made right there. The only item we didn't care for was the Vitality soup because it was a little more spicy than we like. Restaurant location is a little tricky to find. Use a GPS or call and they will patiently direct you. We can't wait to go back, and if our travel requires flying through Atlanta, we will stop at Loving It Live for a meal, since they are fifteen minutes from the airport. And in the meantime, since our class, we have some of their prize recipes to use at home.

Best Raw Restaurant I've eaten at in the world - Edit

I've eaten at some great raw restaurants from California to Florida and even overseas in Europe. This one wins hands down. It's simply the best raw restaurant I have yet to find. I was spending 10 days in Atlanta at the Living Foods Institute completing a raw course there and a group of 12 of us drove down (in our two hybrids no less!) to have a feast on the second to the last day. We did not call in any order ahead of time yet found our food brought out to us in a timely manner once we ordered. I suggest getting a drink to keep you busy until you wait for the food. The tacos were out of the world.. the lasagna was divine (i used to love cheese and this tasted like the real deal!) the stuffed avacado was just perfect, and the Irish Moss Drink? OMG! It was almost as good as the ice cream that came with our brownie for dessert. We didn't want to over do it as we were just finishing a 10 day cleanse with very light raw foods, but I sampled everything and was just blown away! I might have to get back to Atlanta sooner than planned just to eat at this little slice of heaven. I recommend it to raw foodists and non raw foodists alike. Don't tell me it's not the best food you've ever eaten! I'm hoping to Love it live again very soon! :-)

Pros: incredible food, great atmosphere, loved the music too!

Cons: NONE!

Good Food, Poor Service - Edit

Yesterday My mother and I decided to try out this restaurant. We placed our orders and waited for at least 45 minutes before anyone came to our table to say anything about our order. After waiting another 20 minutes our salads came out and of course my salad was wrong, but I did not want to wait another hour for a salad. Finally we got our food and it was great. If you decide to eat at this restaurant I suggust that call ahead and order your food two hours in advance.

Pros: Food

Cons: Wait, Staff

brainyblonde 11 Nov 2008 - I would think since the food was great that you might want to give them more than two stars (a very harsh rating) Raw food can take a longer time to prepare than throwing a burger on the grill. They may have had some complicated (but delicious) raw cuisine orders ahead of yours. Again , no reason to rate them so badly.

Lovn it raw 04 Feb 2011 - I think you had a unique experience because I have recommended it to folks and they all gave raving reviews. The food is so good that the wait is negligible. I only waited 15 mins for the first dish because I ordered all the specials for that day (while I was eating one dish they were preparing the next) and there were other customers. They took an average of 20 mins to prepare each of my orders. I understand however that the menu is more extensive now and the dishes more detailed so it may take a little longer now than 2 years ago. I think you ought to rate it higher because the food is like no place else on earth. Look at the other reviews.

Worth the Wait...if there is one! - Edit

On this day we came at 2pm when they opened for lunch. We did not have to wait long and the food was certainly worth waiting for...if we had had to wait! Another review mentioned that they had to wait. Food was beautifully presented and was outrageously good. I look forward to going there again. Also the server was very nice and the general atmosphere was equally nice. Dessert was extremely good too!

Pros: excellent food, healthy cuisine, friendly staff

Cons: not best neighborhood

Poor Service/Time - Edit

It's hard to justify wait. Impossible to fit in a lunch schedule, waits 45min to over 1 hour. Maybe order take-out 2 hours in advance.

Pros: Great tasting foods, Clean

Cons: Location, Wait kills all Pros

Lovn it raw 04 Feb 2011 - Sorry you feel this way. I feel that the wait is worth it. I place very great importance on good tasting, high quality food that is reasonably priced above wait time. Like you said there is a way around it. Call and order ahead of time.

wow. amazing raw food - Edit

I went here for lunch today. I had been craving some good raw food lately, and this place had some good reviews. So I thought I would try it out for myself. The service was great. Everyone in there was very friendly and nice. I had a stuffed avocado for starters, and it was amazing. I also had a glass for carrot/apple juice, which was very fresh and tasty! for the main dish, I had a tostada per their recommendation. This thing came out beautiful. It tasted excellent. I couldnt be more pleased with the service, cleanliness, or food at Lov'n it live. It is that good. And also, the food came out with excellent decoration, and looked just as delicious as it tasted.

Pros: Clean, Amazing, Awsome

Love It - Edit

Visite ATL for the holiday weekend and went to my 1st Raw resturant. I have been a Vegan for 4 months and I am now going raw. I loved everything about this place(only wish I had one close to my home town). The food was awesome, the environment and staff were great as well. I will eat there everytime I visit ATL. I wouldn't change a thing.

best in town - Edit

I have been to all of the raw restaurants in Atlanta, and Lov'n It Live surpasses all of them. They made a raw sausage out of walnuts, and I swear it was like eating the sausage from a pizza (it's been quite few years since I've tasted anything like THAT) The lighting was a bit bright for dinner, but these just minor complaints for a job well done (as opposed to a job medium rare)

The pumpkin seed and Irish Moss ice cream was like something out of an ice cream machine on the Jersey Shore Boardwalk. I will be back to this wonderful place every time I visit Atlanta.

Pros: food, service, menu creativity

I'm Lovin Lov'n It Live! - Edit

I recently was in Atlanta for a conference. I was fortunate enough to dine at Lov'n it Live. The meal was fabulous! The service was fabulous!! Everyone from the waitress, owner, and fellow patrons proved to be friendly and warm. The first night, yes it was sooo good I had to go back for more, my friend and I split the sampler platter. We had nutloaf, sweet and sour veggies, nori rolls, lasagne and kale salad...scrumptious! We also had carob ice cream and took a brownie back to the hotel. The next night we were fortunate enough to eat fabulous food (pizza, nachos, and vanilla ice cream!) and partake in Spoken Word! It was a great evening. If you are ever in Atlanta, you must visit Lov'n it Live!!! It is a TREASURE!

Great Raw Food Restaurant - Edit

Lov'n It Live is my favorite Raw Food restaurant. The food, ambiance and the people are all superb. The staff is friendly and the service is great. The food is served elegantly and I feel like a Queen whenever I eat there. Lov'n It Live is a MUST DO for vegetarians and non-vegetarians.

Pros: Excellent food, Friendly Staff, Excellent portions

Cons: Too far , A little pricey

"Lov'n it Live" is awesome - Edit

I just want to say that the "tostado" at "Lov'n it Live" in SW Atlanta is soooo good. I have to go back there and try the pizza and other live/raw foods. It's right on the MARTA rail line, and they have a great atmosphere for dining in. Not horribly expensive either. The food truly is fantastic. oh - and yes, I have heard that it does take at least an hour for them to freshly prepare your food to order, but it isn't true that you cannot call and order in advance. I called and they read the entire menu off for me, and the food was ready and fresh when I came to pick it up.


Pros: excellent fresh made-to-order food, pleasant atmosphere, excellent customer service

By submitting this post you agree to HappyCow Terms

Heaven - Edit

Freakin fabulous. I was lost, I called, they gave great directions. Four people, we all shared the green moss drink...perfection...the pizza, spaghetti, tostada, and tacos. Everything was incredibley delicious. Parking is easy, service is relaxed, wonderful, takes awhile for a full meal as any freshly made food should. Although I thought the menu choices sounded samo' same old, they were actually a very high class spin on what I expected to be able to make at home. Obliviously lots of time and effort went into preperation. I've had lots of food in lots of cities and this is my number one. Don't miss it for the world; it's worth going out of your way. Thanks lov'n it live.

Pros: unique food, Sense of welcome

Cons: Make sure you have time

Most Awesome Dining Experience in My Lifetime - Edit

The keyword is "dining" for this truly fantastic restaurant. It is not a fast food joint as others have stated, but a class establishment with fabulous food choices that are supremely healthy & over-the-top delicious. Add to that an extremely friendly staff that desires to please & to interact to learn more, discuss issues (even a table where a lively & interesting discussion was going on ... ate & listened ... have to go back for live music next time) & provide healthy opportunities to customers in the form of books/pamphletts/event announcements to read while your food is being carefully & artistically prepared, cooking lessons to improve your health, etc. Simple a divine place to grow healthier in mind, body & spirit. Thanks Lov'n It Live ... we'll be back ! ! !

Pros: excellent cuisine, artistically presented, friendly & knowledgeable

Cons: NONE

Really Good - Edit

I've eaten here a few times and I normally order the same things (irish moss, collard roll, brownie)but today I decided to try something different - The "Tostado", it was one of this best dishes that I have ever had. Their irish moss drink is the best in atlanta. I did wait about an hour for my take-out order but I can honestly say that it was well worth the wait. I would advise you to plan to be there for at least an hour for take-out. There are ways that they could shorten the wait but I belive that the quality of the food would suffer.

Pros: Clean Creative Menu Items, Made to order, Organic

Cons: Wait, Business Hours, Parking
