This place needs to switch out their phone guy. I called and was in the middle of placing my order and he picked up another order - twice - while I was still speaking. I ended up hanging up because I kept having to start all over again when he came back to paying attention.

I was here about two years ago when they first opened and concept was entirely different (order at counter, casual fare) and food was good. Now, the menu sounds good, but boy is it deceiving! Portions are small and way overpriced and food is just bland and not in any way what you would imagine organic food to be. Ordered the taco salad for 16 dollars. It had maybe 1/4 cup of chopped chicken (and that's being generous) and the kitchen messed up and forgot two ingredients in the salad. Presentation looked like it could've come from a fast food chain...and taste was the same

The concept is necessary and relevant and the menu is healthy, varied and inspired. I had such high hopes for this place. No air conditioning. Service was subpar. Portions were tiny. Wine was second rate. Food was lukewarm and most likely reheated/nuked. Presentation was embarrassing - silly round same sized portioned 'disks' of food. Don't waste your $22 on rice cake shaped and sized plate of poorly seasoned food. Don't cave to the area and concept fanfare. Much better organic restos around.

I was so excited to try this place because the menu sounds so good and really healthy. The food was rather bland - lentil soup not even served with garnish, cheese, or sour cream and it was cold because it must have sat out while they cooked my brown rice. The service was pretty poor - waiter took forever to get my order and never came over to my table to check on me. The only time he hustled was when I stood up to leave and he wanted to get his money. Never again.

I've never posted a review on any site before, but I felt the need to post something because the owner, Alberto, and all of the other employees I encountered, were absolutely wonderful. I had an issue with a coupon that I was trying to use, and Alberto was more than accommodating. Good customer service is, sadly, hard to come by in the city, so I definitely value it when I encounter it. I had the butternut squash soup, the brunchera pizza, and the Brazilian dream smoothie. All were great. The soup could have used a tiny bit more salt, but in general was very good. Both the pizza and the smoothie were perfectly delicious. All in all, my visit was a very pleasant (and yummy) experience and I will definitely return!

If you spend $40 a head for a vegetarian meal and the best thing you have is a glass of mango juice, you can't help but feel you've been had. I am shocked at how poor and overpriced this place is. Lovely space, nice atmosphere, cute attentive waiter, appalling food. Risotto tasted a week old. Small pizza looked bad, tasted as if it were made with canned tomato sauce with who-knows-what tasteless cheese for $18! A massive pile of spinach with a strawberry and a few chunks of pear for $10. Waiter tried sweetly to compensate but at the end of the day, I wouldn't go back even for a free meal. Even the dessert tasted stale.

This restaurant is a block from my house and as I love organic food, I try whenever I can to give it another try and schlep my friends there. At first the food was inedible -- more salt than imaginable. They finally got a decent chef who BTW just left and the food has gone back to uneven. Today's omelet was missing the tomatoes (how hard is that -- tomatoes, cheese, ham?) and the grilled potatoes were raw (as in completely). The waiter cheerfully took them back and brought some sliced tomatoes to make up for the ones missing inside. He was sweet. Usually you get obnoxious Euro-trashy hosts like the front desk person who stares into space and occasionally checks her nails and looks outraged when you ask for the check after a 30 minute wait. That is the norm. My friends refuse to go as the servers are so rude -- as if they prefer an empty restaurant. Lots of tourists from Europe and Latin America yet no one from the Village will go as the service is so rude and the food uneven. A real shame since the ingredients truly are organic and fresh that they can't get their act together to cook the food and treat guests as if they aren't an imposition.
