First time at this location. Unfortunately the last as the restaurant has closed! Found out the landlord forced the closing after some 19 years of operation by requiring an exorbitant rent/lease payment. Seems to be happening to too many "Good" places.

Good has been one of our neighborhood standbys for years, and it's a terrible shame that it's closing. We were just able to squeeze in one more lovely candlelit dinner before the final brunch.

Why must the landlords insist on raising the rent so high that this place can't afford to stay put ?
Since 1980 they've been in business and one of the few places in the Village where you can have a conversation without yelling AND the food really is good, not to mention the friendly and helpful staff.
Sorry for the run on sentence.

It is irrelevant how good "Good" is (it is VERY VERY good) because it is closing in days, because of the typical greed of NYC landlords, who prefer the on-paper enhancement of the value of their property through the raising of rents, to providing spaces for businesses (and PEOPLE) to thrive in and pay reasonable rents that would still provide an income though that's not the same as a property value on paper, notably I suppose if that "paper" were to be a document of sale. Another real-estate bubble blowing out and ultimately up, perhaps. Not how Human Beings LIVE...

One of our favorite restaurants! It is always our go-to place so we are heartbroken that it is closing on Greenwich Avenue after so many years. We only hope it will reopen soon in a new location.

I adore this restaurant and it's my fave in lower Manhattan. I'm so sad to see it go. It's a big loss and terrible news. Their food is delicious and exquisite.

We had brunch for my birthday with our grown kids and young grandson. Our waiter could not have been friendlier or more accommodating. We enjoyed our various egg dishes and lemon ricotta pancakes very much, but were disappointed in the cheddar jalapeño grits which were blandly soft and mushy rather than gritty and cheesy. We live in the neighborhood, and will definitely return to try out the dinner menu.

The service was stellar, and food and drinks were delicious and generous. Good was the best restaurant my husband and I have visited in years. We will definitely return!

Service had a bad night at Good. 2 tables seated after us were served, waiter said sorry for the delay, kitchen was slammed. A third table seated after us was served, I went to the host, he said we were next, guests served earlier had all ordered entrees that took less time. Would have preferred an honest assessment. Took 1 1/2 hours to prepare burger, chicken, and fish tacos.

Good is always good. A wonderful neighborhood restaurant, very pleasant staff. Noice level is very low, making it a perfect restaurant where you can talk with your friends without screaming.

One of our favorite West Village Restaurants. Consistently excellent food and very friendly service. When we need to get out quickly for a show they are great, when we want to linger, they are equally accommodating.

The food was excellent and the service was wonderful. Our waitress was very nice and friendly. Our food was served quickly but they let us take our time eating to just sit and chat. The food was reasonably priced, I thought I got a good amount of food for what I paid.

A neighborhood gem. I only come here for weekend brunch, so I cannot speak on the other meals. My friends and I enjoyed the cocktails, fresh dining experience and the relaxed atmosphere. We didn't feel rushed. My favorite thing on the menu is the lemon ricotta pancakes, so yummy. The only disappointment was that they ran out of Geechie boy grits. Other than that, it was fantastic.
