As usual, Good Earth delivered! A great cup of cream of asparagus soup and their famous chicken salad sandwich was a perfect lunch. We love their patio and felt they are taking great care with Covid— tables well spaced, must wear masks, server in masks. It was yummy!

It was great. Patio was spotless and plenty of space to sit safely from other parties. The staff was friendly and all wearing masks. All customers wore masks as they traveled to their table and then left the restaurant. Thank you GE staff for being at work during the pandemic. We support you.

We have been dining at The Good Earth for over 30 years. We were looking forward to dining out again. It seemed like everyone was preoccupied more on distancing themselves from the customers rather than welcoming them back.

It is not totally their fault with covid but it was actually a stressful experience. They were understaffed so waitress all were stressed. Food was not anywhere near as good as before Covid. Carrot Cake came out semi frozen everything seemed stressed, rushed. Our friend there who is a waitress was totally stressed couldnt talk. Was actually a really sad experience.

Great outdoor patio and even though it is a limited menu, there is a good selection. The entrees are pretty big and the dessert menu is only bars and cookies.

I was allowed to make a reservation online, but when I got to the restaurant, I was told the "system" had made a mistake and there was not an outside table for me, as I had reserved.

The Good Earth patio is an inviting as ever with properly spaced tables. Wait staff and bus people all gloved and masked. We saw good table cleaning. Nice to be back at this long-time neighborhood gems!

Great experience. It was great to finally go out to a restaurant and have someone else do the prep and the cooking. Best of all there was no clean up!

Our first outing to Good Earth in Pandemic 2020. Easy to make a reservation on OpenTable - even had the option for outdoor seating. Put in the request for a high chair, which was confirmed at check-in. And the restaurant, which has always been clean, was even more so, from the host stand to the dining room to the bathrooms. All staff were in masks, minimized contact, and let us know a reduced menu was in place due to the Pandemic. The food was great as usual, plus the kid' menu gave our 15-month old good options, plus the fresh fruit side was perfect. The selection of wine, though limited, was great, with the glass of the Sauvignon Blanc and Malbec being great parings for the Cashew Chicken Melt and Bison Burger, respectively. Servers were friendly, accommodating, and patient with our energetic and noisy child. Truly a great night out for Father's Day, topped off with a free piece of German Chocolate cake, which was delicious.

We ate twice since the re-opening. The 2nd meal
Of the market place salmon did not include the vegetables that it did on the first day and the salmon was not as fresh as the first day.

Otherwise I’m thrilled you are open and waiting for Joes eggs to return!

Everyone had a different item, everyone was a member of the clean plate club 😆. The only reason why I didn’t go 5 stars across the board was how little JAMMIN’ JAMBALAYA was on the plate.

Hamburger was wonderful but bun was sitting in juice so was soggy
Salad dressing had no taste - tasted just like olive oil.
Great service though :)

I enjoyed my time at the Good Earth with my 2 friends. It was a time for celebrating and reconnection, and we found the food choices were just what we needed, and the service was terrific. Our waitress was respectful of our time together, and yet, continued with that wonderful tea and timely food delivery.
There were gluten free and dairy free options. I also saw that there were vegan options as well. Thank you Good Earth!
