This is a nice little spot that only serves organic food but its not overly pricey or pretentious. The decor is very modern looking and clean and everything on the menu looks good. Mostly everything here is organic and vegetarian so don't come here looking for that. They do have some chicken dishes but the burgers are so good! They are the best veggie burgers ever and the look and taste like real meat. You do leave satisfied as well so don't worry about that. We also had the shiitake mushroom spring rolls which were excellent. They lemonade there is good too, with free refills!

I kept hearing about this place but it's in the Marina so it took awhile for me to get there. Now I wish there was one closer to me because I have no choice but to travel there repeatedly. It has a modern yet casual atmosphere--good place to sit down and enjoy eating great food (sort of a garden meets a Swedish wood sauna). If you like fresh local food as an ingredient in almost every item on the menu, you need to check this place out. They offer beautiful salads and allow you to have your own created with local organic farm produce. If you don't mind paying a bit, they have delicious organic juices made for you as you wait (this can take awhile so don't go there in peak hours if you want a quick juice to go). The appetizers and entrees range from Californian to Asian in style. If you want a hamburger don't go. They only offer free range organic chicken, shrimp and wild sustainable fish - the fresh halibut with seasonal vegetables and grains is amazing. If you care about where what you eat comes from, like the idea of fresh seasonal ingredients and don't want to spend a tonne, this is your place. Oh, and they also have scrumptious home made desserts and a good selection of local organic wines and beer. I give lettus 5 stars for being the best new discovery I've made in years!

If you are looking for a yummy and healthy place for a meal head to Lettus. The restaurant hosts a large selection of food all made with organic ingredients. The restaurant itself is a gorgeous and very organic space with wood pannels along the walls and an open floorplan. I would bet anything on the menu will leave you fully satisfied so order as you please. If you're in a rush the long line often goes to the door, but if you have the time its worth the wait!

One of my favorite quick healthy meals in the marina! I've been several times (mostly for dinner) & have been pleased every time. The lettus veggie burger is so unique & different than any other veggie burger I?ve had but is extremely tasty & super filling. (Now I have to get it every time I go!) Other people I?ve been with have enjoyed the salmon over noodles & the chicken panini sando. You don?t need to be a vegetarian or health nut to enjoy lettus. They also have wines by the glass ($6-7) which helps enhance the meal. The service has always been very friendly & prompt.

$17 for lunch got me a miso soup, a half sandwich, and a half green salad - with a smoothie. The miso soup was disappointing because I was expecting traditional miso, and it was not - and the sandwich lacked the full-ness that you would expect ... The green salad amounted to a couple of greens on the side. And the smoothie was $6! Well, you're paying Marina prices for food that wouldn't make it if it didn't have the label of 'organic' on it - I just didn't find the meal satisfying. The interior decor is nice - wood, and simplicity - but the food just doesn't make the mark. I think you can find better in the Marina.

I ate here with 2 other girlfriends on a late Sunday afternoon. With the idea to grab a quick and healthy bite, we ventured into Lettus around 2:30. Although mostly empty-our orders took about 30 minutes, except for one omelette. So while the one hot dish sat at our table cooling, my cold chicken salad didn't come for another 10 minutes and the third dish (a cold sandwich) came 2 minutes later. Not only were our dishes spaced in this manner, no one said a word to us such as ""your other meals will be right out"" It seems like most of the people here actually avoid eye contact with the customers so as to avoid our hungry pleading looks. My salad was boring-lettuce and chicken, not worth $10. The other plates looked much better although my friends poor omelette was chilled by the time she ate it.

I definitely recommend this place for a casual night out with friends/family, but not for a date or such. The food is great! I ordered the sesame crusted Sea Bass, it was wonderful! It was a special, but it should be a regular menu item. For dessert, I highly recommend the raspberry ""cheesecake"" which has no dairy or sugar. It was amazing, I didn't know the difference between that and real cheesecake.
