One of the highlights of trips to the West Village to visit my daughter is a meal at Gobo. The food is imaginative and satistying and the portion sizes always allow for something to take home - a bonus for anyone living on a college budget. Even though I am not a vegetarian - I just like the food! Although I have chaffed a bit at some of the prices, I have found the food so consistently fresh and delicious that I have never regretted the final bill. When the restaurant is full (which it often is), service can be slow but I have never found it to be rude. During a recent late lunch, the staff couldn't have been nicer to this obvious out-of-towner.

This is one of my favorite New York spots. The atmosphere is calm and elegant without being uptight. The food is creative and delicious, and of course good for you too. My favorite is the mushroom & soy platter (which is made to look a little like scallops), and the avocado tartar. The fresh juice is finally worth it. I am vegetarian but i took my brothers (who are BIG meat eaters) and they were over the moon! Some reviews I read complained of too much oil, but I disagree: to me the olive, sesame, and other vegan oils have a healthy flavorful taste and are not heavy at all.

Gobo has really exciting food for us gluten/wheat-free vegetarians! It is well priced and very tasty. Just asked the wait staff to bring you the gluten-free menu, and you'll be overwhelmed by the choices. Even gluten-free beer!! It is one of the few restaurants in the world where I don't have to feel that I'm on a special diet. Didn't notice that the wait staff weren't attentive or that the food was too oily.

What I like: the menu is imaginative and the food is well seasoned and visually pleasing. Also, it's pure vegetarian (no compromising by offering fish or chicken). What I don't like: the service is inexplicably poor. It is slow, unattentive, uninformed, and unprofessional. I tried this Gobo several times, and then gave up when I found the service to actually be rude. There is no sense of customer service. In contrast, the Gobo on the Upper East Side is friendly and better run, however the service is still quite slow. One other downside -- while the food is tasty at both Gobo's, they use way too much oil.

I loved this place - great food - fun atmosphere - friendly staff. I cant wait until they open a restaurant in Boston! I hear there is a cook book coming out - I look forward to buying it!

What a great way to celebrate Mother's Day.....don't miss the green tea noodles with vegetarian Bolognese sauce .... it's over the top! The avocado-cilantro-wasabi appetizer rules, and the Thai spring rolls did not disappoint. The last word: The lovely gift box of candles for the Moms who were there that day was an extraordinary touch.

The food would be much lighter and tastier if the cooks cut the oil content by a good half!
