A word from Good Earth Edina
Come for food that's "so good, so natural, so close to the earth," writes Citysearch.com, "that it doesn't need much augmentation."

The Good Earth, however,
receives plenty of adulation --- from critics impressed with our commitment to top ingredients, to a loyal clientele that make the
Good Earth their first choice for hearty, healthy eating. Both locations offer a diverse menu ranging from comfort food classics to fiery curries. Yet it's not just the cooking that earns accolades...

"Good things come in the attitude of the servers, who know the menu and do everything they can to enhance your dining experience; and the airy, pleasant feel of these spaces that were smoke-free long before it became PC."

    Three of us had dinner here and we all enjoyed our food. We love the Good Earth because the quality of the food is very good and there are so many choices -- meat eaters, fish eaters and vegetarians all have many good choices. The service is always good and this time, Theodore was so kind and helpful that he really was a standout. I have allergies and had to change some of the sides that came with my dinner choice. He made sure that everything was perfect and checked on us regularly.

    Even though we live south of St Paul, we try to go to Good Earth Edina regularly because the food is so good and so consistent. Sometimes the portions will be smaller on costly food like mahi-mahi, but overall portions are good. This is one of the few places I know where the food is really healthful and just delicious. On their menu, there is something for everybody, no matter what your tastes are. Service is always very good.

    I have always loved The Good Earth, and it just never seems to disappoint! It is especially nice if you want a break from a meat and potato meal, but not just vegan. They are inventive in their cuisine and menu, so there always seems to be something interesting and seasonal. We both had the stuffed squash and it was heavenly. They also serve a lovely bread basket of fresh breads and cracker bread, along with hummus. I could eat here over and over !! And the service is super!

    This is the second time in a row that we've had "indifferent service." Our wait person was not outwardly rude but s/he was not smiling and acted as it it were a chore to serve us. It happened the time before with a different wait person. Maybe the staff needs some retraining in manners? It is really too bad because the food and setting were exactly what we were looking for.

    We were a party of 6 and everyone had different needs (vegetarians, meat eater, fish eaters) which were all well satisfied. The little "Just right for you" meals are a wonderful idea in our world of too-large portions and unhealthful food. I wish all restaurants would do this! The manager, Wendy, went out of her way to welcome us. There are only 2 tables for 6 in the restaurant. When I reserved the table, I mentioned that we had someone with hearing difficulties in our party. The table they reserved for us turned out to be perfect. He was able to hear well and take part in the conversations. This restaurant has always been one of our favorites because the food is delicious and healthful, and there are so many choices.

    Two of us met an out-of-town colleague at the Good Earth for an early business dinner. We were able to conduct our business privately in a booth, and without obtrusive service, and yet we were able to get our food and drinks promptly, and our sodas were refilled without disruption. The three of us all ordered vegan options, and found the food to be extremely tasty!

    Go to this restaurant a lot for lunch. This time it was dinner. Ordered the vegetarian enchiladas - not only were they lukewarm, but the sauce tasted like a can of tomato sauce was poured over it. Nothing noteworthy here to say about that night's food. However, as usual, the service was great.

    I eat lunch often at Good Earth and love its menu. The choices and quality of food are outstanding; I wanted my husband to try it. It was our anniversary and while we normally go to more formal restaurants for that occasion, we needed to stick close to home that night and I suggested G Earth. We sat for 10 minutes b4 our waitress noticed us, and that's how the service continued. She dropped our check and I asked if we could order dessert. She left my empty dinner plate in front of me after serving dessert b/c her was heading to another table, we had empty drinks and empty water glasses/carafe while having dessert. Felt like we were supposed to hurry up and leave. I'm a big fan of Good Earth, but wouldn't go back for any special dinner.
