Went to Gobo last night with a few friends and thoroughly enjoyed everything! The food was amazing, especially the avocado tar tar. Very creative. Service was cozy and friendly. We met the manager and he introduced us to different wines from the world. If you're looking for something different then the billion of Italian places on the upper East Side, try this place.

Not such a fancy place..which can be a blessing...not so stuffy. Food is good but don't be fooled...only the juices are organic not the vegetables. And everything seems to be deep fried which is why it tastes good. Service is friendly and down to earth. Strange that the hostesses seem to be doing all the work though, rather than the waitresses. Always see plain clothes people picking up things. Food is delish but not that healthy.

I can't believe people don't like this place. This is my favorite restaurant. I just love this place and never get bored of it. The food is really tasty, moderately priced and not that fattening. I think the food here is absolutely delicious (obviously some dishes better than others). I have turned on people at work to this restaurant and now everyone raves about it. I recommend among others the Yam and Yucca Fries (absolutely amazing), Scallion Pancakes, Vietnamese Stir Fry, Braised Tofu., Spiced Bean Curd, Eggplant Tofu sandwich..... The smoothies are also great - try the Passion Fruit Bubble Tea (not the Lime). Also the delivery is extremely quick! A must!

I'm surprised to read negative reviews regarding food, ambience, and price. I think the food is delicious and not at all greasy. (Protein nuggets with mango is my favorite) The ambience seems rather cute, although I've only gone in to pick up my order. And for about $25 you can get a full meal for 2 people. Perhaps the takeout menu (with pictures on the back) differs from the sit-down menu. Judge for yourself if you think healthful and tasty food is worth that price.

The seating is uncomfortable. I dislike being elbow to elbow with anybody, especially strangers. If you don't was strangers hearing your conversation do not go to Gobo. On top of that the food was subpar and overpriced. Everything was deep fried and tasteless. The service was okay but overall I would never go back to Gobo nor recommend it.

My girlfriend is a veghead and we were both glad to have found an all veg restaurant in our neighborhood. The menu is extensive with lots of organic drinks. I ordered the vietnamese noodles and my gf got bean curd and veggies. Both dishes were amazing and so favorful. BUT we both left feeling still hungry and had spent 35 dollars for our dinner. While the food is great...the prices aren't justified. I would recommend going once to try.... but it's probably just a once in awhile place, unless you can afford to spend lots of money for small portions.

HIgh expectations traded for disappointment. The food was mediocre, the service mediocre, and the value was subpar. My boyfriend and I ordered a yummy-sounding tofu wrap in mango sauce for an appetizer. It was one small fried spring roll cut in half. OK, next. My "sesame protein in sweet-and-sour sauce with broccoli" was a plate of deep-fried breading with steamed broccoli, no tofu to be seen. It was like Chinese takeout, but a way smaller portion. It was also a $16 plate! He ordered a plate of veggies, describes as like pad thai. It was shredded cabbage and jicama, about the size of a side salad, for over $15! It was at least edible. But for a $70 check, we didn't expect to leave hungry and unhappy. This place is overrated.
