HIghly recommended, if you dont mind paying a high price for excellent organic food. SOme things are overpriced, for no reason, but the majority of foods are delicious and high quality. The soups, salads and sandies are really deicious-- but the raw and vegan tomato lasanga is the best-- although very expensive. so like i said, if you dont mind to spend your money, eat at freefoods.

This is what I ordered: Eastern Tiger salad with lemongrass chicken, spiced cashews, sesame roasted shiitake, green papaya, pickled tomato and spicy mango dressing and a roll (at 75cents extra). Sounds awesome, doesn't it? When you shut your eyes you can almost taste it, right? The chicken had no taste, the cashews were not spiced, the sesame roasted shiitake was bland, there was no green papaya in the salad, the pickled tomatoes were salty and good and they sent the wrong dressing. The 75 cent roll was not a roll. It was a very small piece of stale bread. I measured it. It was 1 inch deep, 1 1/2 inch high and 2 inch wide. Also, again, it was stale. I really wanted this place to be good. I'm all about the organic, but this was a real disappointment. It wasn't awful, but it certainly wasn't good. They do not begin to deliver what they advertise. I don't think I'll be ordering from there again.

Whats with all the complainers on this page? Compared to the other hot buffets and fast food joints in Midtown, this place is a dream come true. The food is fantastic - especially the stuff on the "market table", which changes all the time. It's not cheap, but worth every penny.

I was just charged $12 for lettuce with one veggie. I know it's organic, but you must be kidding. And the place was absolutely empty. I salute them for trying to bring organic food to this neighborhood but...And their juice bar is very strange: you can ONLY order the exact combos on their menu and they are $7. Again, be serious.

It's hard to find a place in Midtown that actually values ingredients and has good quality food. That's why I eat at Freefoods nearly every week day that I'm in the office. But the way the place is run is embarassing. The staff act like it's their first day, every single day. The manager just sits around uselessly and taps at a laptop. The service is frankly pathetic.

I was excited as a vegan to find this new cafe in a part of town that is surprising void of vegan options. I got the only vegan sandwich on the menu (Thai Tofu Mango) and was not satisfied. Uncooked tofu with peanut sauce on regular wheat bread for $10. Not what I was looking for in NYC where it is typically easy to find amazing vegan food (Red Bamboo, Angelicas, Atlas Cafe, etc). Overall there are not many vegan (or vegetarian) options. This place seems to cater to the upscale organic meat crowd.

Stopped in here because I heard it offered organic food and was pleasantly surprised to find their Market Table offered several raw vegan options too! They switch it up but so far I've seen tacos, lasagna, thai wraps and sushi, with at least 2 or 3 options a day, and all are fantastic. Compared to what you pay at the city's "raw" and "vegan" restaurants, this quality of food is a steal. Great clean space and plenty of choices for meat eaters too. Hope this place is here to stay.
