I am a vegetarian, but my boyfriend is not. We both love this place. Just took my non-vegetarian parents here who also loved it. Best if you are with someone who knows what to order (I do). The sizzling cutlets are amazing, as are the new england rolls, avocado tartare, steamed spinach dumplings, soy cheese wontons, romaine/smoked tofu salad, mai fun and the coconut rice is great with any dish. Service is good and the place is very pleasant to dine in. There is a nice outdoor seating area in the summer.

I had to stop in the middle of my meal to write how good to food is!!!! I have been looking for a fresh, great tasting place to have as a go to, and let me tell you this is it! Friday night close to rush hour, half hour later my food nice and hot arrives. Had the wantons and they were delish..and for anyone that isnt a veg head you wont understand, but I had the most flavorful unbelievable veggie burger! If you've even considered eating here, do it! Go now.

After seeing Sex and the City, my friend and I wandered around the UES, looking for a fabulous place to eat, inspired by the fabulous movie. We came upon Gobo and decided to try it out, because my friend had heard good things about it. I really enjoyed it we split a bunch of courses and had two glasses of wine each. The pricing was moderate and the service was good, although our waitress did suggest we order less (she might have been hinting at something else)...I grabbed a menu on the way out and would definitely go back. Nothing to get too overly excited about though - perfect for a post-movie meal or take-out.

I tried few dishes there: appetizer - some fried spinach dumplings (oily and tasteless), some regular fried egg tiny ommelete masked under some exotic name with tiny bits of mango.. thenn spinach nori Tofu in red curry, red curry was tasteless, watery sauce nothing to do with curry,, my friend had some tough mushroom which was fried and loaded in black bean goey sauce and I tried also fried rice which you can get in any cheap chinese restaurant for much less. Overall I was very dissapointed, food pretends to be exotic and healthy but I think it is complete opposite. and above all. it was all bloody expensive for what was it! I am vegetarian but would never go again!! (sorry Gobo...)

My partner and I absolutely adored Gobo. We were wowed by the avocado tartare, the scallion pancakes, an excellent beet salad, and hearty Malaysian curry with coconut rice. My gingerbread cookie with soy ice cream and spicy berry compote was a perfect ending to the meal. The only misstep were the "highly recommended" seitan skewers. The sauces were too bland and the seitan a bit too soft. However this hardly made a dent in the way we feel about Gobo and and cannot wait to go back to bring our friends.

I love the food at this place!! its amazing...I usually go to the upper east side one, where the service has almost always been sub par except for the one time when the host was actually the manager filling in for someone!! However, the one time I went to the west side one, the service was excellent. I say, if you go to the one on the upper east side, go when its not crowded, but still expect to wait around for awhile to get your check! or do what I do and order in!

I have been to Gobo over 10 times and have never once had bad service. Everyone there is so warm and friendly and knowledgable, even if I just go in for a bowl of soup and a tea. The food itself is incredible- I recommend the spinach and soy cheese wontons, the braised tofu and the spinach pistachio roll. I guarantee you'll love this place.
