What is in that Bread?!?!? – This is a great place to go for lunch. Casual but clean. Great sophistacated yet comfy atmosphere. The food is consistently delicious and the service is fast and friendly. I recommend any of the salads, especially the Southwestern Chicken Salad. I get it every time. It is sooo good!!! Even if you're not a salad person you should order it. It's worth it! The best part of the whole place is the INCREDIBLE bread they serve before the meal. What is in that stuff! It's like this buttery pumpkin bread...my goodness is that stuff ever tasty and addictive! Prices are good as well.
Love it – I don't really get all the bad reviews. There are few places in New York that I find worth revisiting, simply because there are so many amazing restaurants to go to and I want to try them all. But I've been to Spring Street Natural twice in the past month, once for brunch and once for lunch. I loved it both times. The corn crusted tofu is amazing, and the egg dishes are so good! I went with a friend who has very strict dietary limitations and they were very accommodating. Also, the prices cannot be beat in this part of town. My only complaint was that our waiter was a bit rude on my first visit, but he warmed up by the end. All in all, it's really good, and I'm going back a third time this month so I can show my boyfriend how good it is.
Grimy! – we were seated at a dirty table (crumbs and grease), which had been set nonetheless. The we were a menu that had butter stuck to it! We left. totally unacceptable, no matter how busy it gets!
Best veggie burger, good delivery in Soho area – I've only eaten at the restaurant once, but I get delivery frequently. The almond veggie burger is excellent and great to eat on a lazy friday movie night. I don't like that there is a minimum delivery amount, but not a huge deal. Delivery is usually quick, although I am sometimes put on hold for a few minutes. Additionally, they are not consistent with what they include in the meal - sometimes I get bread, sometimes I don't.
Great unique dishes, for an excellent price in an excellent location – This might be one of my favorite restaurants in New York City that doesn't require a special occassion to visit. The prices are excellent - especially for the quality. I love everything I have had here so far - and basically agonize over the menu because I just know I will love it all.
Avoid this horrible brunch place with RUDE waiter service – Is this a resturant or just a place for people to "be seen"........
This place has the worst service. Waited 20 mins for a table and another 15 mins to be waited on to only have the waiter be RUDE to us. The waiter gave me the wrong drink,told me to keep it and he would take it off the bill but of course did not deduct it off the bill in the end.
We found egg shells in the smoke salmon eggs benedict and the hollondiase sauce was missing ,which is the best part of an eggs benedict dish. The omelette we ordered was over done with no taste and the fries were burnt.
What a disappointment , I would not reccommend this place nor ever go back to eat there again.
Good place for a group, service friendly, but there? – This was has been a Soho fixture for many years. It started as a strictly macrobiotic restaurant and has become looser over time. Now it's kinda sorta health oriented. Slightly on the expensive side, but not for Soho. At 9 the place was crowded. At 10 it was nearly empty. As for food: The pumpkin ravioli was very good, and unlike anything I've had. The others in our group were happy with the taste of the food, if not the somewhat small portions. Our servers were friendly although somewhat less than attentive. Hello? Hello? Anybody here? --Drink Club is a roving group of NYC drinkers.
really great – went for sunday brunch today around 12:30, no wait at all. Couldn't get seats outside, but sat by window. waiters courteous. delicious almond veggie burger, first time i've ever had one..moist, hearty, and very fresh ingredients. homemade catsup to go with excellent fries (not too greasy, crisp yet soft inside). Really good bread basket with multigrain rolls and a moist pumpkin bread. Cheap brunch, $30 for two of us. Clean, relaxed, yet soho chic. will definitely go again, i loved having a healthy yet completely satisfying meal instead of the usual rich eggs/pancakes/french toast route (though they have that too--probably excellent)
Bad Service, good food – I have been to this particular restaurant twice, most recently Sat. 7/22/06. The food as usual was excellent but the service was so atrocious. The waiter seemed annoyed to be serving us, he never came back after the food was served to see if I needed another soft drink or to even ask if the food was ok. When he initially brought out our drinks, my wife asked him for bread, he never brought it out. Just to get our check was a hassle in and of itself. I wound up tipping him 10 percent. So, as a I said, this is a great place if you have plenty of time to wait around for service.
Last Visit – Went here July 13. Was seated at a booth in the back, near the kitchen. We had just received our drinks when a r-o-a-c-h the size of my thumb crawled up the arm of my boyfriend, who seated across from me. Utterly grossed out, he jumped up and tried to find it while I got a hold of the host and asked to be reseated (would have just left if I hadn't gotten my drink). At first he was brusque and, bored/rude, asked what the problem was with where he sat us. I explained the vermin-crawling-on-my-boyfriend situation. Unstirred, he told me "I didn't seat you; ask her," pointing to the hostess next to him. Only he HAD sat us, which he then realized moments later. At this point my boyfriend trapped the b-u-g beneath his messenger bag and managed to (a) squish it and (b) throw it out. Many children and yuppie onlookers in the packed dining room. Our fearless waitress ran into the kitchen for cover while this all played out. The couscous appetizer we were eventually served smelled strongly of acetone--obviously gone bad--I've made couscous salad before at home and it smells that way when it's turned. Not wanting to run the risk of complaining again, but not wanting to eat food that smelled strongly of Cutex nail polish remover, we sent it back. The host, while apologetic, proceeded to tell us that he tasted the salad we sent back and that it was the gorgonzola that probably smelled weird. I know what gorgonzola tastes/smells like, Thanks. The salad was bad.
Finally, it was necessary to order a beer three times before it arrived.
Though he comped us our drinks, I was disappointed during this visit. I've been there a half dozen times before and have generally enjoyed the food and service. But I don't think I'll be going back--not worth the time/money and distraction of looking at my sandaled feet constantly, expecting large vermin to crawl up my leg any moment. They need to exterminate there.
