A word from Organic Grill
“You want to eat healthy, but you’re allergic to “health food.”
Not a problem at this East Village café where locally grown produce and artisan ingredients make up dishes like black-bean-and-corn quesadilla with a cherry-tomato salsa. Even the coffee is organic and shade-grown.”

    This is one of my favorite places to eat at. If you care about eating healthy organic food, then Organic Grill fits the bill. The food is delicious, the prices are reasonable, and the service is excellent. Never had a problem that was not taken care of. They even offer a Frequent Diner Program where they treat you to a free dinner on your birthday. There aren't many places in New York that offer healthy foods like Organic Grill. They have a variety of excellent dishes to chose from. My favorite is their Green Machine Burger. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

    My husband was unsure if he wanted to try organic, but he really liked it. The atmosphere made it very enjoyable, took us back to the 60's feel. The food was very tasty and we will now try other organic foods. Our waitress was just fantastic explaining everything to us and making recommendations on what to try and how to top our sandwiches. Young couple from CA sat next to us and we had a small conversation. If you go don't be afraid, try everything from a watermelon drink to even the deserts, suggest you try the 3 different brownies, which were all very different, the one we were not sure about turned out to be our favorite. We hope to visit again with our son and his family as they will really enjoy it too.

    The East Village has many restaurants purporting to serve healthy and vegetarian friendly fare. Organic Grill delivers the goods- tasty, nicely presented, fairly priced food that is healthy and vegetarian friendly. We will return, particularly during the NY Fringe festival where several theater venues are in walking distance in the East VIUllage, close to Organic Grill. The omelet and the huevos rancheros were terrific.

    I brought my friend here because we wanted something casual and inexpensive but healthy. She's on a very healthy diet and I am a vegetarian so I found this place on Yelp! It's small and cozy and the waitress was very attentive and helpful. I've had alot of veggie burgers and this one had all kinds of delicious toppings on it without being too messy and overwhelming. Everything was very fresh and flavorful and you had vegan options, as well. I liked the roasted potatoes as their "hashbrowns" instead of fries which was a nice change. The only thing I would improve is their vegan carrot cake. It didn't taste very "carroty"-just kind of plain and a bit dry. Maybe the other desserts are better?

    We had the Valentine's Day Prex Fixe meal and went in with high hopes having dined at the Organic Grill many times. I can't lie when I say that this was some of the best food I have ever had. Everything was delicious to the last bite and most of it was gluten free and vegan, which fit my dietary needs. One of the most delightful dinners out I've had in years!

    I had gotten there before my brother arrived, and went through a few appetizers including a terrific tomato soup with couscous and an expertly made greens juice (cucumber, pineapple, ginger, lemon, as I recall..) We followed up with the Tofu Masala and Vegan Pierogies, both of which were well seasoned and rivaled dishes I've had at so called high-end vegetarian restaurants in town.

    As a person who eats gluten-free, dining with a gluten-free vegan, restaurants are hard to find. This restaurant provided a wonderful menu with opportune that would appeal to any diner who is conscious of what they eat. The food was prepared fresh and flavorful, and the gf pumpkin cheesecake was to die for! I only wish I had bought a slice to take home, although it would have been gone before I got to the bridge!

    This place has been hit or miss for me. If you like health/vegetarian dishes, they serve good portions and have some good choices. Sometimes, however, I've found the food rather bland. I'll admit it sometimes also has to do with who one dines. :-)

    Organic Grille was wonderful. Every item on the menu sounded great. There were 3 of us, and each of our selections was fantastic. We even had organic beer and wine! We shared 3 desserts. Being fairly new to vegeterian/vegan food, I was not prepared to expect that this kind of food could taste so good! And the service was great! I wish there were a restaurant like this where I live!

    I already know Organic Grill is a tiny place that is always hectic. New Year’s Day was very busy, but the staff managed people and tables and balanced food and service quite well. I had the coconut, cashew, chia pancakes our waiter recommended and they were fantastic! My companion had the breakfast sandwich, which came with potatoes, which she found it to be delicious. Mimosas came with both and those, to, were well poured.

    Picked it for convenience to Theatre 80 on St. Marks Place. My salad was to contain tabbouleh which was spread throughout it with other vegetables instead of being in a pile. There were an awful lot of greens. It was to have tapenade included, which appeared on four ovals of what seemed like Melba Toast, but tougher and I found myself gnawing away at it and finally scraped the tapenade off and ate it, leaving the dry, unappealing bread. I picked through the salad & ate the interesting bits and some of the greens and felt underwhelmed. We ordered a piece of carrot cake to share for dessert. Instead having cream cheese frosting it was plastered in sweet glace icing which overwhelmed good cake.

    This is more of a fast food restaurant, not a place to sit down and enjoy. Tables were sticky and just didn't feel like a hygienic place... only ate a small portion of my food because I wasn't sure about the preparation and it was heavily salted. Service was a bit slow, but it was busy. It's just not a "reservations needed" kind of place.

    This was my second time here and I ordered the same thing I had the first time, because I recalled it being so good. This was their burger with a portobello mushroom on top. This time, instead of a whole mushroom, I got half a mushroom and the burger itself was cool rather than hot. Normally, I would have returned it to ask them to heat it but we were in a rush so I let it go. My friend enjoyed her meal.
