The food was very healthy but it was not really exciting taste. I went with 5 other friends and they did not seem to enjoy it much either. I would say Average..

I had the special - fruit salad, huevos rancheros and a tea. The fruit salad was fresh and very enjoyable. The huevos rancheros were lukewarm, good quacamole but the 'rustic potatoes' were a bit mushy. Service left a lot to be desired - had to chase my bill, then got the wrong change and had to wait a long time... More

The food is good here, however, the portion sizes have been declining since me and my bf have been coming here the last few years. Quality seems to still be good but I got a turkey burger and it looked like a preformed patty which makes me wonder if it was frozen or not. it tasted good but had me... More

We discovered this place after we saw the movie Fed Up, about the increasing obesity epidemic in the US. We are always looking for a "clean", farm to table type of restaurant to go to in the city. This place is awesome! I love the menu's and the the service is impeccable, they also have organic wine without sulfites which... More

I was very impressed by the amazing meal I ate at this restaurant (go for the veggie burger!) but the service was VERY slow. It actually took close to an extra half an hour to get dessert. The restaurant wasn't busy, so we were quite confused as to why it was so slow. But if you have all the time... More

I really like this restaurant. The food is great, it's casual enough with no pretense, and sometimes there is good live music. I eat here when visiting NYC with my mother as I need gluten free and she is elderly. The staff treat us very well. I drive her car there from Philadelphia and always (so far) have found a... More

This place is terrible. First, it looks so dirty and worn. The food is OK but way overpriced. They have a sign outside saying happy hour 4 to 7 pm but when you get inside the server says not on weekends. I just stepped foot in G-O for the last time.

Every time i've dined here, the experience with the waitstaff has been memorable…in a good way. Servers are knowledgeable and pleasant and willing to give advice on what to try and what to avoid. I like that. On occasion, the beef here has been chewy and tough, but one doesn't really come to Gustorganics for the beef. Or the desserts.... More

Overall review (Bad, OK, Good): Food = Good; Service = Good; Ambience = Good Food: For apps we shared the hummus and pita plate. It was standard hummus and pita. For the entree I ordered the Argentinian stew and it had good flavor. It also was a good portion and enough to fill you. The one negative was that it... More

How wonderful it was to meet owners Kiki & Paul upon enjoying my second top-notch, FANtastic dining experience here! I ate very slowly, as to enjoy and savor every last bit of every ultra-healthily-delicious bite! Loved it!!!
