About Good Earth Edina
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."

Good Earth Edina Ratings and Reviews
Always good, thoughtfully prepared food. Attentive staff. Lots of healthy menu choices. The bread basket, formerly brought when asked for, now costs $2 (a small irritant. Food prices are high enough to easily absorb it.)
The day we were there, there was a plumbing issue before noon, causing a closure and a premature ending to our lunch. The bakery, accessible from the mall, is worth a stop.
I got the planet burger and was very disappointed with the tiny plate it came on, plain potato chips and the planet burger easily fell apart. When I had ordered the same dinner in the past, it came on a regular size plate, not a small rectangular one and stone ground chips were given and the planet burger didn't fall apart so easily, making it difficult to eat without making a complete mess. I think they should go back to how it was previously.
I was a little disappointed in the breakfast menu. The potatoes were too largely cut. I got the heartland breakfast. It was nothing special. I always go for lunch and this was the first time for breakfast. It was a little high priced for what you got. I don't know if I would do it again. The service was exceptional tho.
Our server was slow then tried to rush our out as soon as her shift was over.
GE is now charging for their bread baskets and the hummus we received was frozen.
Feel like the last few times I’ve eaten here I’ve been disappointed so have rescheduled my next friend gathering for somewhere else.
Even though we often choose an old favorite, the Good Earth has enough choices that we almost always have a hard time deciding. There are always good seasonal offerings and a smaller-portioned "Just right for you" full meal. There really are choices for everyone -- omnivores, vegetarians, anyone interested in healthful food. Food is carefully sourced; just the bread selection makes this clear. (However, due to rising food costs, there is now a $2 charge for the bread basket and hummus.) Food is never too salty, although soups could sometimes use more interesting seasoning and herbs. There are pepper and salt grinders on every table. I love dining at this restaurant and could easily come here 3 times a week (if it were closer to my home). It is a wonderful place to meet friends and have a leisurely chat.
Always love having breakfast at the good earth. It was very busy as was our waitress. It took awhile to get our food and then when we did get it our potatoes and eggs were cold. Very dissapointing. The waitress took it back and warmed it up.. in the microwave.. our meals should have been free, with the wait for our food & if it’s not right we shouldn’t have to pay for it, cold food is not acceptable. We will think twice before rushing back.
Food was good, with seasonal items for variety. Our server was so-so. We felt ignored at first when we sat for 5-10 minutes to order. This after she knew we had been there already for 5-10 minutes. I asked for a different desert for the 3-course meal, and she said fine, but did not follow through on it. Worse yet, no desert was even served, again waiting 10 minutes, including time to process our check with a credit card. We had to get it to go (including ice cream) since we were now late for our movie. No well done, Good Earth!
We went here because it is one of my wife’s favorite places. Food was on point and the service is great. Very intimate setting and you do not feel like you are being rushed like some some other places we have been at. We recommend their turkey meatloaf, always a crowd pleaser.
We had guests from out-of-town and knew that Good Earth would be a perfect spot. Something for everyone - vegetarian, meat-lover, healthy, naughty treats, . . . Good Earth has it all covered. Our server Hillary was outstanding - gracious, helpful and patient. Everyone, the hostess, server and manager really made us feel welcome - even as we stayed right till close, having wonderful conversation with our friends who we hadn't seen in a long time. A couple of us really appreciated the gluten-friendly choices, while others feasted on the yummy breads and crackers :) And, I very much appreciated the response I got from Bob the manager prior to the evening, answering my email question about ingredients for a specific dish. (And, yes, the Thai green curry with shrimp was delish!) We will continue to return as we have been doing for many years!
Always a great place for healthy options! Food is made to order and always freshly prepared, and they allow substitutions, which is refreshing! Fresh fish, vegetables steamed, and rice preparations! Soups, and always several choices! Even deserts are excellent.
A cozy atmosphere with flavorful, healthy choices. Some in my party enjoyed the smaller portion menu options. Nice to be able to make reservations and has nice outdoor seating when weather permits. Service was prompt and courteous. Everyone enjoyed their dinners!
Waiter was clearly trying, but forgot to bring us a sample of the soup (his offer) and brought us the wrong (lesser) burger. It also took several visits from the waiter before we got the bread / crackers. However, it was worth the wait. The waiter also seemed inexperienced dealing with patrons with food allergies.
The Thai Curry flatbread was excellent. Although it was mild in heat, it was still very flavorful.
The Bidimbap vegetables were nice and fresh, but they lacked seasoning / sauce; only the meat was marinated. The portion was on the smaller side.
