Great for special diets
Delicious food, excellent service, great for people on special diets. My friend eats kosher and I am vegan and gluten-free, and we both were super happy with the food.

Inventive food but a bit noisy
Gobo is one of my favorite restaurants in NYC. I find the Greenwich Village location a bit more frenetic than the Upper East Site location. However, the food overwhelmingly makes up for the noise and the cramped table space.

The food is great, the tables
The food is great, the tables are terrifyingly close to one another. Despite some pretty slow service, the dinner was still wonderful thanks to the malaysian curry, seitan skewers, and spicy bean curd, among other tasty plates.

Lots of variety of delicious vegetarian dishes. Very creative. Great atmosphere and service.

Gobo has an outrageous menu. It was hard to choose so we ordered more and planned on left overs. All our dishes were tasty and cooked perfectly. Service was attentive and unobtrusive. II plan on returning.

Excellent Veterian Restaurant
Although I am not vegetian, but my wife is, I found in the menu variety of dishes and tastes that I really liked

Wonderful food and service
I got to Gobo a little early and the hostess took it in stride and allowed to sit anyway. The restaurant is so peaceful and lovely. You can see the chefs and into the kitchen. I had two wonderful servers, who truly made my meal. One of my fellow diners failed to call and tell me they weren't coming. While one was almost two hours late but this was due to traffic. Enough about that, I want to talk about the food. I had the Spinach Wontons. So light with a incredibly good dipping sauce, of I believe mango and something else. The second plate I had was the Pine Nut Vegetable Medley With Lettuce Wraps. I could have easily eaten another plate of this. I had passion fruit brule for desert. It was wonderful. I have to come back.

The food was great and the waitstaff was very friendly and attentive. Although I probably overate a little bit, I left the restaurant feeling healthy. Everything I've tried has been delicious.

Consistently delicious vegan menu. Warm, attentive service. This is a friendly, happy place. I bring out of town friends here all the time and they always insist on returning. Try tempura sweet potato fries or roasted seasonal vegetables. Everything we've tried has been excellent.

Amazing Vegan Restaurant
I feel I could eat anything on the menu at Gobo. I have been there a few times and have never been disappointed. Food is very fresh, perfectly cooked and it's all vegan!

Tasty! Creative veggie food. Overpriced but a satisfying meal and a good time.

Food was great and service good. Even the carnivores at the table gave it raves!

Always a winner
We love eating at Gobo. The food is always great and the service is prompt and friendly. It's a casual place but the quality of the food is excellent. We always enjoy watching the faces of our guests who are always skeptical about vegan food light up when the food is really really really good.

They make vegan eating fun! Thanks for a great meal.

Exquisite Vegan Cuisine
The food is the main attraction: imaginative dishes, profoundly delicious, made of vegetables, tofu, miso soup, green tea noodles...stunning, nouvelle presentation...the kind of food that makes you slow way down and savor every mouthful...that makes you want to do some deep breathing between courses just to be more present in the moment. :) If that weren't enough the service is beyond accommodating...caring and charming, the staff were a pleasure. Beautiful, contemporary decor and somewhat Asian feeling to the esthetic. The only down side was that the noise level was pretty intense, but on a weekend evening in NYC, I'm not sure that's avoidable.
Can one give 10 stars? 10 stars! :)

Great Vegetarian Option
A great NYC vegetarian option with plenty of dishes to surprise the senses.

We were looking for a place to eat before an 8:30 pm curtain at the Public Theater and discovered Gobo. Interesting menu with lots of options and very attentive service. We'll be back!
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a winner
We love taking our out of town vegetarian friends to Gobo and we go there quite a bit now. The oyster mushrooms in black bean souce are always good and the yam fries to die for. The only thing they could improve on is that we always seem to wait forever for our drinks. Other than that, Gobo is awesome.

Wonderful meal. Pine nut vegetable
Wonderful meal. Pine nut vegetable medley is addictive!

Our Server was amazing from
Our Server was amazing from start to finish, in fact the entire service team was great! the food is fantastic, and even as a non-vegan/vegitarian you will find something on this menu that suits you. we had a really early reservation and this place was very quiet, after about 30 minutes every table was sat. service stayed awsome even when busy, we will be back.

The vegan menu options far
The vegan menu options far exceed any vegetarian's wildest imagination! The food is delicious and beautifully presented by their attentive, yet unobtrusive wait staff. The restaurant is spotless and offers a "Zen-like" dining experience. Can't wait to go back for another fabulous meal!

Best Vegan Place i ever been to!
The tastes there were magnificent! The service was superb! The atmosphere was wonderful! Obviously going back there VERY SOON!

Wholesome and tasty
The food and the service are unbeatable. There is NOTHING negative to say about this place. It's a little bit of heaven on earth. The seitan in ginger sauce and the pineapple fried rice are to die for. As Tina Turner would say, "Simply the best."
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
I'm not vegan and I go back because the food is so good. A perfect place to take your vegan friend when you're not vegan or vegetarian yourself.

Great food, nice ambiance
Food was really fresh and delicious. The servers were very attentive and friendly. Prices were about average for a nicer restaurant in that area. Would definitely go back again.

Great food, but noisy
So loud it was impossible to talk, but they very kindly gave us the separate table at the front where we could at least hear each other. Don't know why so many restaurants have such terrible acoustics, with all hard surfaces and no sound absorption. And one of the worst perils of dining out - shrieking girls in their twenties ... The food is exceptional, however.

Have walked by Gobo hundreds of times and finally made it in for our Anniversary dinner this week. OpenTable reservations worked great, we got there a few minutes early and were seated without a hitch. Waiter took our order and our food came out quickly - from our table we could see it all coming together in the kitchen - this restaurant operates like a well oiled machine - turning out amazing vegetarian dishes quicker than you could imagine. i was going to break out all the food we had but honestly i do not think you could go wrong with anything on the menu here. (the only issue we had was the person sitting next to us had way too many bloomingdales bags and was not considerate enough of our personal space)

healthy and delicious
My husband, 23 year old daughter enjoyed our dinner here very much. We found the food imaginative, tasty and healthy. Wine was good as well and the tab was quite reasonable for the quality. We had a really nice time.

Gobo was excellent, especially
Gobo was excellent, especially the first two plates we had. We loved the Pine Nut Vegetable Medley with Lettuce Wraps and the Grilled Oyster Mushrooms & Fresh Asparagus. Yum. Our waiter was excellent, very knowledgeable, helpful. The noise level was pretty loud and it wasn't always easy to hear each other.
