So I loved this place, LOVED it. I mean, anytime an out-of-town friend came to visit, I would drag them here, raving about the deliciousness they were about to experience. It's a bit pricy, but that's to be expected since everything is made from scratch, plus you get a (predetermined) side and a pickle. I wasn't crazy about the redesign,... More

Been here many times for lunch when shopping at Stuyvesant Plaza. The food and service has been consistently good and I always gravitate back to the same turkey with stuffing and cranberry mayo half sandwich with cup of cream of tomato pesto soup, always yummy. Last evening the hubby and I were looking for a quick bite before attending an... More

I understand your frustration. If you... More

Place is so much better after the redesign, open and modern. The best salads and soups in the area. Love the outdoor seating in the summer/fall. Food is always ready fast, unless its lunch time during the week becuase of the business offices. Otherwise, love it.

Bountiful is a great place to stop in Stuyvesant Plaza for lunch. They are many different options, including salads, sandwiches, paninis, and great bakery options. The prices are definitely high for the area (average $11-$16) for one person, but everything is made to order, and the staff is always friendly. They have lots of seating and is the kind of... More

Dear Tyler G: Thanks for the great review. It's true that Bountiful is bit pricier than some chain competitors. Our commitment to the highest quality ingredients made fresh everyday does carry a slight premium, but we feel that our guests understand that formula. Scratch food is better, but it's more expensive than the "heat and serve" model of some competitors.... More

I hadn't been here in over a year, and they have completely redone the place. It looks absolutely beautiful and the food is still just as delicious as before. It always tastes so fresh and natural. The people are so nice and the workers are more than accommodating. Its a tad pricy but worth it for the foods quality.

The sandwiches, soups and salads are good, but the baked goods are incredible. They're gigantic, sweet, and sinful. The salads are huge, but the bread is so good I recommend getting a sandwich. The portions are large, but you pay for it. I used to think this place was expensive, but seeing how much Panera's prices have gone up recently,... More

Thought this place was kind of neat, we pulled into the plaza looking for some breakfast and liked the looks of this place. Had some nice breakfast options also had options for the Gluten Free folks. I went with the Quiche which was tasty and my partner did the Breakfast Sandwich which she quite enjoyed. I don't do coffee but... More

Stopped in for lunch while visiting nearby. Had broccoli cheddar soup and the sandwich special which was a turkey reuben. Soup came with bread and sandwich was large and came with a pickle and chips so this was WAY too much to eat. Everything was delicious and service was great but it was expensive.

There is a good selection of sandwiches, all made from scratch. Like another reviewer I had the mozzarella and tomato with pesto on a baguette, and it was excellent. Coming from Boston, I had no problem with the pricing. The assistants were very friendly. The restaurant is, however, very austere with no atmosphere, and the chairs aren't that comfortable
