Great food, all organic and very attentive waiters. Bit quiet and bland interior but I enjoyed it and will be back. Unlimited mimosas only $10 for 2 hours!

We went there for data night and could not have been more pleased. Had a corner table by the windows. Loved the great variety of veggie vs non-veggie and the gluten free options. Highly recommend that walnut meat tacos and the Kale/cranberry salad. Both extremely flavorfull. Wine list was a bit sparse and they didn't have the syrah we had wanted but were gracious and replaced with a very good malbac. Wait staff was attentive and friendly. Made us feel very welcome and at home. I loved this place and we will definitely go back.

I had the Indian Vegetable Curry. It was maybe 10 -15 pieces of vegetables (broccoli, squash, 1 string bean, cauliflower). Their was too much rice to vegetables and the sauce was hiding under all of it. The sauce was NOT Indian in flavor at all. There was NO curry to the dish. It was just peppery. When the server put the dish down on the table I couldn't even tell that it was the Indian Vegetable Curry. It was NOT worth $18 and I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone. The only good part is that it is organic.

Amazingly priced brunch and all Organic . . . AND unlimited Sangria!?

They don't know how to cook a steak. The medium was replaced* by one which was medium well on the out and rare on the inside: heat too high. I like it medium rare, so undercooked is always better than overcooked.

d

*Replaced is the wrong word, since they just added another piece of meat (Filet Mignon, you mean!)

FINALLY, you can enjoy a DELISH, ORGANIC, reasonably-priced meal!There is truly something for everyone. All is delish!I am the only one in my family who NEEDS to go Gluten Free. It was a pleasure to be confident that my meal was good for me. However, whether GF, Vegan, vegetarian, or carnivore, their food is delicious. It is nicely flavored, but not too salty.Extra salt, in my opinion, just covers up the flavors of delicious food!If you do not need to go GF, this place is terrific for you, too! Ordering a GF meal for yourself does not mean you are missing out on anything. The meal just happens to be GF!Generally, there is rice instead of bread, or it's corn-based (say,for a wrap) instead of wheat-based.GREAT service, casual chic atmosphere!

I write this review after they've unfortunately closed. Their food has always been delicious. Their service has almost always been lacking. I think that's why they were forced to close. They made creative, tasty, plant based food. But getting that food served to you was always haphazard.

GustOrganics has a varied menu. It's divided so that if you prefer to eat vegetarian or raw, you can find choices. There are also choices for carnivores. Everything is organic. The portions are HUGE! My friend and I shared the Mexicali salad and zucchini spaghetti (both cold dishes). Both were super plentiful. The zucchini spaghetti was bland to my taste. The salad was amazing if you like raw kale. I was there one other time and my friend and I shared a smaller kale salad, a veggie burger and vegetable coconut curry - all were GREAT. I love when I find a restaurant that serves healthy and tasty food that offers a lot of choices for vegetarians. If that's what you're looking for, you'll find it here.

Service was very slow and not as attentive as I thought it would be. Bar ran out of item and was never told. Waited and waited until i actually went to bar to find out that they ran out of ingredients. Basil and ginger cocktail was very good. Definitely would recommend for those on specific diets (pale, organic, macro, etc). Desert of mock blueberry pie was frozen. Not what I had expected. Not so good. When told to waiter, no response or action taken. Waiter staff was short handed. Waiter was not as attentive as we thought. Seemed station was overworked. We believe that he had stations inside near bar as well as outside. When it was time to pay check, we had to locate our waiter who was outside talking to passer by on street.

Husband & I have been coming here for years & have noticed that both service & food are progressively going bad. This will be the last time we eat at Gustorganics. Service is subpar - starter came out AFTER entrees & lame excuse given, very slow & inefficient. Food portions have dwindled to about 1/3 what it was, and found a hair in my entree! The kitchen is S-L-O-W - took over 45 mins for food to come out and the restaurant had only 3 other tables at the time. There are plenty of other restaurants to go to.

I prefer doing takeout from GustOrganics because the service really isn't great. My boyfriend and I ate here once and it took forever for someone to come over and then forever to pay the check. The prices are also very high for what the food is. I love the lentil soup, but it's $15 for a bowl and a side. And the cake is the most delicious cake in THE WORLD, vegan and gluten free (quinoa flour), but it's $8, which is so expensive. I've also tried the raw zucchini pesto, which was alright, but definitely not worth the price.

I have been to this place about six times and loved it every one of them--those I've brought with me had no complaints either. The steak empanadas and lemon chicken are amazing. Obviously the fact that Gustorganics is an organic restaurant was the main selling point but the food can stand up to any place I've ever eaten. I can't wait to go back.

We recently moved to NYC from Santa Fe and the one really notable difference between the East Coast and the West coast is the lack of healty eating options. Yes, there are places in the city but limited. Gust Organics offers something for everyone and every diet type. Paleo, macro, gluten free, vegan, you name it they have a menu for it. They are a certified organic restaurant and everything was fresh, fresh, fresh. Had the Hemp-anda and a chicken empanada ....loved the hemp one. We both had the grass fed filet migon which was done perfectly and followed up with a lemon pistachio cheesecake which was decent. Would definitely go back.

I don't understand why the euphemism for SO FREAKING LOUD THAT YOU HAVE TO SHOUT TO HEAR YOUR FELLOW DINERS as "Energetic"? We're not at the gym. We're trying to enjoy dinner. So, why the overloud music (especially so out-of-place to be Frank Sinatra night at Gustorganics)? The lights, were constantly flickering from normal lighting to all of a sudden dimming for no reason. I kept having to wonder, was there a tumor I didn't know about happening in my brain?

The food is good, if only the restaurant would have any idea how to play subdued music and NOT subdued to flickering lighting.

We came to NYC for a few days and were looking for a place with organic produce and meats from sustainable farming. We found GustOrganics and were excited to try it out. It took like 10 mins to get out drinks and the bill for it even though there weren't other people at the bar. As for the food- the walnut tacos were delicious but the "taco shell" of endive was kind of bitter. I ordered the burger which really lacked flavour. My friend had the salmon and said the same thing. I actually left feeling still hungry. Next time in NYC I think I'll go back to BareBurger and Eatery.

The food was really good, especially the zucchini pasta and the walnut meat tacos. The service, however, was not. It took forever to place our order; the server forgot a glass of wine I ordered and he never came back for me to remind him so I gave up; we had to flag several servers down just to get our bill.

It's awesome to have a certified, all organic restaurant option in the city. The food was wonderful. It's rather expensive, but an excellent special occasion place to eat at if you are looking to avoid GMO foods and want to eat out once in a while. The service was slow to get us started, but once we ordered, the waiter, after that, was very quick and good. I would definitely eat here again for another special occasion and would recommend this restaurant for all.
