Overall, Bad. Food subpar at best, and overpriced for the quality. Service was slow. 'Crunchy cabbage salad" was literally a small bowl of plain cabbage..for seven dollars.

I go here often when I can, the food is nothing over the top but they always have a very wide variety to choose from and you should be able to find something you like. If you care about healthy food this is a good option.

Decided to stop in for lunch with my cousin after seeing their outside board with fish, vegan and macro food offerings. Friendly host, got seated right away. The menu took a little getting used to but in the end you can customize your food in enough ways. And this is from where the whole thing went downhill. Our server was... More

A great place to introduce yourself to macrobiotic food. I had a hearty fish soup and a vegetable stew. Big portions and very well priced. The place itself lacks style, feels rundown and the service could need more consistency. A nice smile is not enough, unfortunately. Healthy food can and should be served in a nice professional setting.

I enjoy food and am open to trying all different types of cuisines. I eat anything, so I was open to trying this place. I ordered something pretty basic and it wasn't at all what I expected, and furthermore, it didn't taste very good. I didn't even finish my dish and left hungry. My friend liked his food, so maybe...

My good friend is vegan, so whenever we go out for dinner I'm on the lookout for places where we'll both enjoy the food and Souen didn't disappoint. I had the vegetables and tempeh in mushroom gravy sauce which was delicious and a LOT of food. I should have taken half home for lunch the next day, but finished it... More

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
