I love this place. I go back every time I'm visiting. Everything on the menu from the food to the drinks is pure bliss: healthy, tasty, and priced fairly. My go to meal is usually the steamed greens and salmon. I also love the feeling...More

It seems that after their renovation a few years ago the food, service & general atmosphere have just gone downhill completely. Their waitress of 15 years who used to speak English properly & check on meal ingredients has decided to play dumb & lie about...More

If you care about the way you eat and the quality of the food, Souen is a must for you. All vegan menu except for the fish, that is actually so fresh, tasty and worth trying, plus they give you multiple options for the sauce...More

My friend, the sushi eater, says this is the freshest sushi he's ever eaten! The food is fresh, well-prepared and beautifully presented. The edmame was a little bland, but the sautéed brussel sprouts and miso soup were delicious. The macro biotic plate was good once...More

One of the best places in the city to eat healthy vegetarian food. I try to go there on a regular basis to keep myself healthy. The macro plate is great value.

Menu was excellent, as was the food. I tried the pad thai and squash tofu--both were excellent. Love the vegan menu.

All I can guess is that negative reviews come from people who do not put quality of ingredients first, are used to over-salted, sugared, chain restaurant fare. I do put health first, always want to eat organic, so eat at one or the other of...More

We came here courtesy of a recommendation from our daughter who enjoys well-cooked and reasonably priced food. We were not disappointed. My spouse and I had the Special of the Day crab and avacado sushi roll with brown rice, miso soup, and black eye bean...More

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.

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.
