Has anyone been there and if so what did you think.

How was the food and the pricing?

Is this place worth a try?

Thanks. :)

    It's Lonjevity with a 'j'... I drove by the other day and thought what a dumb (and long) name for a restaurant. Lonjevity is a Superfood Fusion Cafe according to its website http://www.lonjevity.net/index.php ... Actually the menu looks pretty good, it might be worth trying. Seeing as everything is in a stripmall here, it's hard to judge a book by its cover. I'll let you know if I eat there...

      Thanks for the correction on the spelling...I misread it. :)

      The menu does look good.

      Although you can't see the back of the parking lot from the road, whenever we drive by, there is almost no one there...the parking lot at the sides always looks empty,

      I would appreciate your comments IF you eat there....we may take a chance and try it ourselves.

      This has been an unlucky location for the past few years.

        I saw a commercial for this on Channel 6 this past week and thought it looked interesting. I am primarily eating macrobiotically and thought this would be a good place to go. The menu does look promising and I'm looking forward to hearing what the place is like.

        we got 6-pizza's to go last week, and they were all excellent.
        You are right about the parking lot--its always empty...
        Its owned by a doctor who probably needs a tax loss.........

          Been there twice. I went on a saturday when they had live music. Awesome local talent I've never seen and never heard of... very entertaining! The food was great and reasonably priced. Beautiful salads and fish entrees. Great wine! Try DARED its an excelent red wine for listening to music and chowing on a grilled thin crust pizza with multi grain crust. Def. worth checking out!

              I am generally turned off by places that seem to place a higher priority on health than taste. However, I must admit to being pleasantly surprised by the lunch I had there. I had an imaginative salad with spring greens, watermelon, feta cheese, nuts, and some other stuff. It was good! I'd go back.
