A word from Good Earth Roseville
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."

    it is what it is. lots of wholesome food, thoughtfully prepared with some originality. the décor and ambience are not the strength of Good Earth but from a quality of food perspective, you just can't go wrong. they've been doing this for decades, before it was trendy, and they still have a great product, intelligently prepared

    The service was outstanding!! Very attentive and quick. We were greeted with a friendly welcome and immediately seated. They started us off with coffee (excellent! - I had Chai Tea), fresh juices and smoothies all which were very tasty.The prep was very quick. Our food was excellent (the kids loved the bacon - nitrate free). We had veggie skillets, sausage skillet, pancakes. Enough choices for everyone and was fresh and flavorful. Our server was very friendly and we had a conversation about what we were in town for, shopping suggestions, etc. The next day we came back to grab some wonderful treats from the bakery case and the hostess remembered us and asked how the shopping was. The bakery items were out of this world!! Huge cookies!

    The waitress goofed on a few things for the people we were with but cheerfully corrected them. I wish the fall menu had been available. We missed it by a few days. I had the bento box which I wasn't really familiar with. I wouldn't order it again but I think it just wasn't my taste. The wine was very good and it was only $10/bottle. We didn't feel rushed and were able to visit with friends easily. It is in the neighborhood. I've really enjoyed lunches there previously and had amazing service!

    We were greeted by our server, he took our drinks and food order. It took a long time for us to receive our drinks-just tea. Then the food service was lumped together. I received my soup and the bread basket the same time the table including myself received the entrees.

    My husband and I visited Good Earth because I had been given a gift card nearly a year ago. We checked the menu online but weren't sure what to actually expect. Our waiter seemed somewhat unfamiliar with the menu and drink options. Our appetizer took some time to arrive - and was warm, not hot. The entrees were "OK" but nothing I would return for. It was loud because there were so many tables in the space - many tables for 2. The restaurant was full - so something draws people there. I just didn't see what that something was on my visit. Perhaps it was all the "healthy" food descriptions.

    We have been to the Good Earth many times but always for breakfast. This time it was for dinner and my Thai Chicken wrap was fantastic. Great flavors. A little messy to eat but worth it. The Soup we had was also wonderful. The couple next to us had a dish that was served in and on an acorn squash they said was excellent. Very imaginative chef. Our server was new and nervous, she could use some oversight as she spilled soup on the man next to us but after apologizing she turned and started helping us while he cleaned up. She should have done more for him.

    We came to Good Earth for my daughter's very special birthday. Good Earth did not disappoint. The service was excellent Food was great as well. At the end, my daughter was given a free piece of carrot cake. Good Earth is always my number one choice for a special event or a night out.

    The ambience is nothing special, but the restaurant is clean and tastefully decorated. The food is really good. Best of all for me, they have a gluten-free menu. The food is a little pricey, but you leave feeling good for having eaten there, not ripped off for having paid for yet another mediocre meal!

    Server was a little inattentive and not very personable, slow to bring water and bread basket to table and rarely offered refills on those. But the tea refills came quickly and the food was fabulous.

    The food at Good Earth is always so fresh and healthy and different than any other restaurant around. The experience starts from the minute you enter with all the wonderful smells and friendly people who work there. The menue changes as the seasons do and that is very nice and I love the special beverages they offer. My girl friends and I (which is usually who I dine with when I go there) usually have a giggle or two that every time I look at the menue I usually have to have some explanations ... that's because it offers such unique food. Wish I had one closer to me in Brooklyn Park or Maple Grove area.

    This was my first time here, but sure wont be my last. I found it on OpenTable and after reading reviews and me being n the mood for something different, I had to give this place a try. Trying to find parking during lunch was a challenge..Circled the lot 3 times before parking was available. Very busy for sure. But once I was in and seated right away, the service was great and the menu had a great variety as well. Definitely for the "health freak" so to say... but everyone can find something. I had a smoothie , from a list of thousand different varieties...lol.... and a 3 course lunch.. wasn't disappointed at all.... and decent price for being all natural as well.... will be back.

    Online reservations through opentable - we made one, but wouldn't have needed to. The Roseville Good Earth has the same healthy menu as the Edina Good Earth and is nearly identical in style. The only difference is that it almost a certainty that reservations are necessary at the Edina Good Earth during peak hours, but we found the Roseville Good Earth to be less than half full on a Saturday evening at 7:30. So if you want the healthy dining experience of Good Earth but can't get a reservation at your desired time in Edina, try the Roseville location.

    A group of 8 met for breakfast with a reservation, we were immediately seated and the table was all prepared for us. Members of our group arrived at different times soit was a little difficult for our server to keep up with other tables and our disjointed arrivals. I hadn't eaten here for breakfast before so this was a new experiance. For me, I was not impressed with the pancakes. My biggest frustration is that I have been a frequent patron since the first store by old Brookdale opened almost 25 years ago. I come for the cashew chicken salad and the Good Earth icd tea. Over the past few years, the tea has gotten weaker and weaker. Saturday, you could hardly taste the different flavors; it was not much different than plain black tea.

    Good Earth tries hard but never quite seems to deliver. The aroma of spices is almost overwhelming when you walk in. The menu items looked and sounded great on the menu but were so-so although wines were nice. Flatbread was undercooked and artichoke dip was thick and gloppy. Service was poor when we were there -- 3 different servers who seemed to disappear for long periods when we wanted something.

    Met a past colleague for lunch - we had a great time! So many wonderful menu selections and those that we chose were exceptionally fresh and nummy. We were a little bummed by the price of the beverages, but this did not hinder our good experience. (Though, $3.75 for an iced tea felt a bit high in cost.)

    This Minnesota "Good Earth" has pretty good food that is vibrant, enticing, and delectable for the taste buds. However, on the day, that I was there with a guest, we were placed next to a couple that had young children (even though I requested a booth not near others - which this facility cannot accomodate). Needless to say... they got a bit rowdy and very noisy. Normal for children but, you know. Do not try their Green Tea with a"hint" of mango. The mango barely stepped into this tea. Ambience is rated by me as "NOT SO GREAT!!!" Food is pretty good but, I cannot totally be "BONKERS" for this Minnesota ------ Good Earth restaurant. Somewhat disappointed!

    Last time I visitied this Roseville location was about 1986. Back then I loved the quality of food and the water which had slices of lemon. For the last several years I have filtered my water by removing chlorine and fluoride among other crap. So now I can detect chlorine with 1 small sip. Yuck. The water at Good Earth is like almost all restaurants - full of chlorine and other junk! The only restaurant that I have found that has awesome water is the Original Pancake House in Maple Grove, MN. Now back to the Good Earth - Roseville, I was generous with my Ambience rating. A remodel is in order, period. I felt like I was in a cave-poor lighting, low ceilings compared to other places. I had to eat again before bed--just not enough food
