I ordered the farmer's vegetables and they look like frozen vegetables that were thrown into a take-out container. The yam fries arrived without the sauce that is supposed to come with them. And on top of it all, these geniuses charge a $1 "Admin" fee (in addtion to what you have to tip the delivery man). I called to tell them that if they charge an admin fee, they should take 2 seconds to look at what they are sending out to people and they didn't even have the business-saviness to reverse the charge for me. NEVER ordering from here again.

A drink, an entree and a different dessert everytime for $20. Went there today with my wife and 3 boys. The wait staff is always friendly, food is always good and the usual manager there always goes the extra mile to make you feel welcomed. She set us up with the best seats in the house in direct view of the musicians who play there every Sunday. And then she joins the band on percussion! Pretty awesome. Trendy but with a neighborhood joint feeling to it. Go for the food, go for the service and go for the atmosphere.

that a vegetarian restaurant would be so 'cool'? Great atmosphere - very good service - and terrific food! Good wine - fun desserts! A keeper -- and it wasn't 'chunky granola' either....

food as good/better than the other vegetarian places in the ues, and service is friendlier and warmer too. we had the ginger pumpkin soup, which was extremely good, the seitan skewers which were ok (my wife liked them a lot, i thought they could be a bit firmer). for main course we had the seitan/kale/ginger sauce entree (which was good) and the veggie burger sliders which were the best veggie burgers i had in a long time -soft brioche-like bun, moist inside with avocado, and nice grainy (non-mushy) burger. the sliders were so good, we ordered a second helping of them. the coffee (french press) was strong, flavorful, and hot. for some reason, we dealt with 3 different servers, who covered our table without skipping a beat and warm smiles on their faces. i happen to live 2 blocks from the place so for a long time i neglected to go -wish i had tried them sooner. will definitely be back often.

i love GOBO east, eat here when i can and bring friends always. the oyster mushroom fritters are unworldly, the seitan skewers delish, the mushroom panini my husband's fave and the sake very smooth. the upper east side location is much quieter than the downtown one. i wish they would use non-casein soy cheese in their amazing spinach soy wontons. but to the restaurant's credit, when asked if everything on menu was strictly vegan, they came clean about certain exceptions. it's a bit pricey but worth it.

...food that is outstanding relative to all type of cuisine, not just vegetarian. The steamed farm veges with brown rice and tahini sauce needed no sauce, and those yam fries are scrumptious. Oh, and the kumquat lemon juice bubble tea is my new addiction! The service is a bit slow but the food makes up for it.

It was delicious food!! But it is a bit overpriced for the small portions they give you. I might as well order from a really good Asian restaurant for cheaper.
