We enjoyed the ambiance and 100% organic food here. The prices were more reasonable -esp for NYC (esp compared to other organic NYC restaurants *cough* ABC). Food was flavorful and not overly salted or sugared. Sizzling fajitas were just that...and filling portions. Lemon chicken was delicious - not too dry and had a tasty lemon sauce. The wait staff was attentive for the most part and our water glasses always stayed full. They had an Italian red wine there (Cadetto?) that had quite a wonderful bouqet and nice long legs at a reasonable price....that paired well with both the fajitas and the lemon chicken. We enjoyed our dinner so much we went back two days later for lunch - which was equally as pleasing. The mushroom risotto was creamy and delicious as were the sizzling fajitas...again. We left stuffed both times...feeling this was a better deal for NYC organic eating. We plan to return on our next trip to NYC.

Organic or not the food is overpriced. I also asked for a bottle of sparkling mineral water. A small jug of soda water appeared ( obviously from a tap) and for this they wanted ten dollars . These so called organic purveyors are cashing in on their mid town location . The rest of the food was very average ( 26 dollars for a mushroom risotto ). I left really quite repulsed by the whole set up. As I left I noticed the large B on the window . Personally I would have awarded c - . Below average and NYC has much much better .

Food, service and ambiance was excellent. Earthy Jazz music playing on a nice system. 100% Organic, non-GMO food was delish. Waiters were very professional and attentive. Loved that they kept my water glass full. The overall temperature in the restaurant was kind of low, and os I and some others kept our coats/scarfs on on this cold winter evening. Not cold but comfy cool, with great ventilation. Windows however were notable drafty. Restaurant is also very clean and organized. Some menu items appear overpriced, however quality is excellent and food was tasty.
