Diner Reviews
  • "A modern take on vegetarian dining. I'm a proud vegetarian, but my experience with vegetarian restaurants is crawling with hippies and lackadaisical servers. Gobo is a nice step up when you want something a cut above the typical casual veg fare. Patrons are always dressed casually and comfortably, but the ambiance is nice. Well lit, huge open space, nice decor. Servers are always attentive. Good wine selection; I recommend the Malbec!"

  • "Our waiter did an outstanding job of directing us to an array of delicious dishes. It is always so nice to have a wide range of vegetarian options. Wonderful french press coffee and chocolate cake topped off a successful meal."

  • "I'm far from vegan but still find myself eating here from time to time. A lot of great food options that are well prepared and original. Service is slow, waiters aren't very friendly and it can be tough to get their attention if/when you need something. That being said, i'd still recommend this restaurant to the non meat eaters out there."

  • "the food is always so good and appetizing. I love the wontons and fries. I always get the butternut risotto...makes my mouth water just thinking about it!! The only thing is tables are just way too close for comfort. I wish they were a little further apart from each other."

  • "We love Gobo. Our favorite items are the pine nut vegetable medley lettuce wraps, the seitan skewers with green tea mustard sauce, and the eggplant with herbed tofu cheese."

  • "Who knew vegetarian dishes could be so scrumptious. We picked Gobo to accommodate some out of town visitors who are vegans, and we will definitely go back. The food was excellent - from diverse choice option to the exotic. They were very good about recommending dishes to us carnivorous and vegans alike and we all left happy, satisfied and delighted we had found a gem in the neighborhood. The atmosphere is very relaxed - almost zen like - which makes for a relaxing and very pleasant dinning experience. ."

  • "into eating healthy! It was an amazing experience. After all of the grumbles and skepticism everything we ordered, one after the other, was polished off with non-stop comments of, "wow, this is really good!!" And we had at least two people out of five who just wanted a hamburger. Delicious, tasty and filling!"
