This Souplantation is somewhat different than the others by the fact that they require you to pay first then start piling on the fixings and salad bar offerings. Parking can be somewhat tight since this mall also includes Whole Foods and many other shops, restaurants and small establishments. Also, did I mention Kids Eat Free! And make sure to sign up on their website for weekly coupons and emails announcing their seasonal special offerings such as their tuna salad, cajun days red velvet lava, banana upside down cake days and their delightful curry lobster bisque. The Souplantation is my son's most favorite place to eat. Reason is because he gets to sample all of the fresh foods the Souplantation has to offer. Our L.O.'s favorites include their blueberry muffin tops, gooey mac n cheese, that wonderful jiggly concoction we all love-jello, that fresh and fluffy cornbread, that warm and cozy, made from scratch chicken noodle soup and that occasional creamy swirl soft serve cone to top off his man baby feast. My L.O. not only loves to eat the food here but every time we dine here he tends to start a mini food fight with all the offerings and it all ends up on the floor. Again, sorry faithful employees and fellow patrons of this establishment for encountering this feisty man child in his orange infant chair. Now this part of the review goes out to all of you hard working table attendants at the Souplantation. We apologize from the bottom of our hearts for screwing up the tables and floors beneath with all the food and napkins we dispose of. We can't help it. And we hope you received our small gratuities that we leave. We salute you for all of your hard work. We will be back.
We used to come here fairly often, but unfortunately, in recent months, the quality has decreased quite a bit. They've been trying to upgrade the place, and it definitely looks nicer. They've replaced the acrylic glasses & plates with actual glasses and dishware. Yes, they may look nicer, but they're also much heavier, and that makes it more difficult for kids to carry. They've also replaced their real whipped butter with packaged pats of butter, which are so cold you can't spread it on anything and you end up tearing your bread apart. At our last visit a few days ago, as I was getting my silverware, I noticed the knives were all incredibly dirty. I had to hunt around to find one that was clean. My other chief complaint is that the quality of the salad items seems to have gone down as well. The lettuce isn't as fresh, and other vegetables just didn't look appealing. The radishes were brown, not white and crisp. I do love the soup and baked potatoes. But the baked potato condiments were relatively empty and hadn't been restocked. This has been my kids' favorite restaurant for a while and unfortunately, we probably won't be coming back.
Had not been to a Souplantation for several months and returned last night. Looks like this location was recently remodeled. The salad bar selection was ordinary and lackluster. Person refilling salad bar was slapping out new product like it was for livestock...no care whatsoever, just dumping bins of feed. Not appetizing. Soups were okay but nothing special. Acoustics with the new styling seemed louder than ever and the place was full of noisy little kids. Not my idea of a pleasant dinner experience. The whole experience felt industrial. We won't return.
