My husband bought a mango with pineapple and coconut and was given a carrot. When he returned they swore it was mango. I tasted it also and it was overwhelmingly carrot. We will never buy from them again. Save your money!
Forgetful and sloppy staff – It is a juice place. Nothing magical. But the staff continues to forget to add ingredients. I mean if you are going to pay 6 to 7 bucks for a juice with a special shot - you should at LEAST get it right. I watched them 'forget' or were 'too lazy' to add the mint or the shot (which I paid 1 dollar extra for). The best was this evening - they do not make juices past 8 pm. Only smoothies. It is a JUICE SHOP!! And if they state they are open until 9 PM, they should serve UNTIL 9 - else change your hours on the web!! Save your money and go to Fairway...
Good smoothies – I had a really nice smoothie here the other day, although it wasn't anything I would go out of my way for... They don't take cash and the smoothies were very similar to Jamba Juice's. I also wasn't crazy about the fact that almost all of them use sorbet (I prefer lowfat/nonfat yogurt). But if you're around, the smoothie was tasty and the staff is all very friendly. It's really just a nice neighborhood smoothie/juice bar.
A Great Juice Bar – NYC needs more places like this. It's super clean and the staff is great.
I love the drinks and the sandwiches and soups are delicious too. Keep it up!!
The Smoothies Are Fantastic – I recently discovered Juice Generation on West 72nd Street near the park. I thought the smoothie was excellent because it was not too sweet. I have been back several times and tried 2 other smoothies and a wonderful fresh juice called Mr. Greengenes. Overall I had a good experience here and I will continue to go back and try other drinks that they offer. A great, healthy addition to our neighborhood!

I Love This Place – I been going to Juice Generation on 72nd Street for about 2 years. The people who work at the store are extremely nice and always remember me - but the reason I go is for the Mr. Greenjeans and my mixed berry soy muffin. This is healthy stuff and it tastes so good. I have also bought the cranny smith tuna (sp?) sandwich and it was also very good for about $5.00.
I highly recommend this place for a healthy lunch or fresh juice. I also appreciate that they keep things really clean and all the vegetables look very fresh. A good experience is a great juice bar!
I Love This Store! – I admit it, I am a "Juice Junkie"! This is my FAVORITE store in the city as they have the best smoothies and juices I have ever tasted. Some of the drinks do have nonfat yogurt, but I always ask for organic agave nectar instead (no extra charge!)
The smoothies are all good and juices are fresh and delicious. The vegetables they use are always very clean and so is the store - they have great music!
I also love the hot drinks like Cold Warrior and Ginger Guru when it's cold outside. They offer fresh bakery called "Soy Bundts" that are filled with soy protein and low in fat - delicious!
This is the BEST place for fresh juices in the city that I have visited. My daily addiction!
