The food was good, and we had a nice dining experience. However, two of the cars (in our party of 8) were broken in to during dinner. When we spoke with the hostess, she didn't seem concerned (or surprised) about the break-ins. (The Roseville police later told us that they see a lot of break-ins in this area.)

We regularly eat at the Good Earth. We were there on New Year's Day at 6:00 p.m. We had reservations. There were very few people there--1/4 to 1/3 full. Nonetheless, it was the worst service we had ever had. The server would disappear for long periods of time, didn't check back with us, and didn't offer dessert even though I had indicated on the Open Table reservation that we were celebrating a birthday. I asked for sauce on the side, but received no sauce. I had to go find the server to request the sauce. By the time it came, I had finished most of my meal. This is not our usual experience at the Good Earth, so we will give them another try.

I took a friend to brunch to celebrate her birthday. Beside having her meal paid for by me, the waitress offered her a piece of carrot cake for her birthday. She happily took the cake home for latter in the day. Both of us were very happy with our meals and the excellent service.

We enjoyed an early dinner before Blithe Spirit at the Guthrie. We live to the East so dining before the Guthrie is much more to our taste than the eateries at the theater.

The food and atmosphere at GE is wonderful and relaxed. The staff was a bit harried, I think as a result our appetizers, salads and main course all showed up in rapid succession. Otherwise, the service and food were excellent and we enjoyed our dinner.

I usually order the “Just Right For You” which changes monthly. The portions are just right, the presentation is appealing and tastes great. I am rarely disappointed. Servers are friendly and attentive.

The Good Earth burger was delicious but the Bangkok Satay was hugely disappointing. Very small pieces of dry chicken and flavorless sauces. Not worth the $11
If you are going during winter time, ask to sit away from the windows. So drafty I had to wear my coat and hug my cup of tea to stay warm. Even the curtains were blowing with the breeze. Brrr. Our waitress was great and attentive, but the restaurant seemed understaffed as it took almost 25 minutes before she was even able to get our drink orders. The reservation was fantastic - they had the table ready right away. We'll be using Open Table again!

I was surprised that you had to pay for a small bread basket....most restaurants bring bread free with a salad. The service has not been very good for the last several times I have gone there. They must need more help as the staff are not able to check on tables as often or bring extra cups (refills) of tea. I have been disappointed lately so may not go as often as I had previously. The food is still very good however. We attend the Good Earth in Roseville.

Both the salmon patties and the accompanying sauce were good, but extremely bland. The sauce, at least, should have a little tang to it.

The spinach salad was pretty and flavorful, but the diced mango, jicama, red peppers, and candied pecans were too small for the big spinach leaves, and a bit awkward to incorporate iand get everything together on a fork. Consider slightly larger pieces of these ingredients. Also consider a thinner dressing, one not so graty-feeling.

Two elements that brought down my overall rating, however, were potentially serious safety hazards, especially with your elderly or disabled clients: first was the treacherously icy parking lot, which made walking from my car to the restaurant extremely slow and nervous-making. Had I not had my cane, I would actually have turned around and gone home. I mentioned this to the staff person taking registrations, and again (after about a two-hour stay) to another staff person behind the front counter. Both said they would contact a manager, but after the initial two hours, nothing had been done, and I had another icy and potentially dangerous walk back to my car. (I don't know if the second staff member followed up or not.) All of your clients deserve a safe and stable route to your door.

Second, the ladies' restroom had paper towel litter and water on the floor, especially in the stalls--a possible fall hazard. The staff person I contacted went to inspect, but said only that the water would have been from people tracking in outside, and went back to her station--missing the larger point that any water, regardless of its source, should be mopped up immediately. Even chain restaurants like Perkins have a staff person checking and tidying up regularly.

Thank you for the opportunity to comment.

Normally a good restaurant. This evening the place was crowded, had a very bad experience with the waiter. Did not bring the appetizer. The waiter also dropped an item off the plate, however he did not tell us. When home, I find cranberries all over my coat. Will not be coming back until management addresses the wait staff and provides more space in the dining room. Tables are crammed together and almost not safe for people to come and go. If a person was in a wheelchair, they would not be able to go to this establishment.

I went for the blackened catfish. Bummer it wasn't on the menu/out of season. My shrimp was dry, as well as my vegetables. I shared with my first date that this isn't the norm, just a bad night perhaps. $63.00 for a dry meal that I couldn't finish nor wanted to take home to nurture it. I was disappointed but understand that bad nights happen. If this happens again I'm going to complain.

Every experience I have had here, the food has been terrific and the service has been terrible. My last experience, he took our order and said “would you like bread? We have to charge now.” If that were the only awkward moment it would have been overlooked. But every time we asked for something he would leave the table repeating what we asked over and over, I’m assuming to remember our order. When he brought our food to the table he practically threw our plates at us because they were so hot. Why are the plates so hot? Was our food sitting under the warmer? I don’t think our server smiled the entire time we were there. This is definitely the worst service I have had there but I have never experienced good service here.

After waiting for quite a while our main course came before the soup. I had to ask for the soup from the server. The waiter finally checked back with us and said he got busy and forgot about the soup. After finishing our meal, which was dried out, we had to ask another waiter to go track down our waiter for the bill. To top the evening off as I left I stopped in the bathroom and there was no toilet paper! Disappointing, I enjoyed Good Earth for many years but recently has gone down hill.
