I have been doing brunch here for years. I am vegan, So it's perfect, the menu is wholly vegan with few exceptions The portions are large and the prices are small. The place to visit. more

Comfort food at its best 10/1/2011

Their omelettes are to die for. They serve them moist with healthy fillings-peppers, spinach and the best cheeses. The place has the feel of a classy diner. The service is good-the place is comfortable and their prices surprisingly reasonable. If you don't go for eggs there are plenty of other healthy choices-salads and sandwiches, plus great soup. more

Healthy Food and Affordable 9/13/2011

There's no shortage of good restaurants in the East Village but my wife and I found one, that serves Organic Vegetarian Cuisine-The Organic Grill. I love all day breakfast food even at dinner. They serve on of my all time favorites-(hard to find) buckwheat pancakes.The hotcakes were delicious and I also ordered an omelette with Cheddar,Spinach and Green Peppers. The omelette was moist and extremely tasty. Amber prefers more lunch/dinner fare at 5PM. She ordered the miso soup and the tostada salad on whole wheat tortilla. She really enjoyed both as well. The place is always busy but the turnover is pretty quick so you won't wait too long for a table. I found the service very attentive and even though we both only ordered water to drink they came by often to fill our glasses. The restaurant is very clean including the bathroom. The location is in a great neighborhood which is great cuz we both needed a good walk after. We'll definitely be coming here regularly. more

Great food! 8/25/2011

I switched over to Vegan recently and I was happy to see these guy knew how to make their food. I will definitely go back again more

Disappointing Food 5/30/2011

A friend and I went here for brunch - nothing more fun than visiting the East Village on a hot afternoon - the first thing we ordered were the ginger black iced tea and the white melon iced tea, which were really good. The food, though, was not. The cornbread was cry and tasted more like carrot cake than cornbread. The ""over easy"" egg was cooked through. The crepes were like rubber, the vegetable stuffing in them completely bland and unseasoned, and the carrot and green pepper dipping sauces just plain weird (and not in a good way!). I had to put ketchup on the crepes to make them taste OK. I will not be coming back. more

A good experience at my 1st Organic joint 3/5/2010

My bf and I came here for dinner 1 night. We both had a good dinner and were satisfied with our meals. He had the quesadillas and like them. I ordered the potato leek soup (which was a yummy puree) and the millet burger on ezekiel bun with humus dressing. It was good, but needed a bit more flavor, so I used some of his white dressing which made the burger 10x better. My dish came with home fries (not French) which were also yummy. Then we split a Big slice of chocolate cake which tasted great to me (not overly sweetened with too much sugar). I would definitely come back. The waiter was polite too. Pros: Very healthy!! Decent prices Cons: Might need more taste to some people more

Editorial review from GrubHub 7/9/2008

The meal was *delicious* and arrived very quickly. My only regret was that they were out of vegan gluten free desserts when I ordered, but they called right away to let me know and a I got credit back from GrubHub. Order with confidence from these guys! more

Great Food, Great Service, Great Price 3/5/2008

I became one of the frequent diner members because I come here so often. The food has always been excellent and the service has always been good. I typically get this one guy server with a lip ring and I've never had any complaints about him. The portions are always a good size and the price is always fair. I guess the only problem is that the place is so small so there might be a wait to get seated. But if you're looking for some healthy eats, check this place out. Pros: Great food, great prices Cons: Really small place more

Horrible service 2/18/2008

The food sounded very yummy but when I got my order my split pea soup was half cooked, still hard. It was pretty bad. I could hardly get the waitress, she was too busy talking to someone behind the counter. She barely paid attention to me.. I had no water, or napkins, it was just bad service. Pros: Decent main course Cons: horrible staff more

Friendly staff, large portions, real food. 2/17/2008

I love the Organic Grill! I've been eating there for a little over a year. It's my go-to spot when I just want a bowl of grains, some yummy sauteed greens, or a nice salad. It's wholesome food with a good vibe. Highly recommended. Pros: great tea selection, comfy living room style decor, intimate more

Delicious food, fast delivery. LOVE this place. Everything I have ever had from here is fantastic. Highly recommend the vegan chocolate chip cookie, too! more

Not Worth the Terrible Service 4/11/2007

Walked in at 9:40 on a weeknight looking for a quick dinner after having seen a movie. Didn't have the chance. The two women working at the counter told us the place was closed. Disappointed, I asked what time they closed so I would know for next time. We were told 10. My confusion was quickly replaced with annoyance after they admitted what I was beginning to realize--the place was mostly empty and, thus, the kitchen was ""closed."" In other words, these two wanted to get home early and were turning customers away. Pros: Great vegan food Cons: Service somehow manages to be consistantly and unforgivably bad more

Where have OG's glory days gone? 4/9/2007

I used to eat here constantly, but the service became so intolerable that I've not been back in months. Just as an example, the final straw visit involved the wait staff refusing to turn down exceptionally loud music in the seating area (despite the fact that we were the only customers at the time) and the waitress accidentally pouring hot coffee *into* my brother's bag (which contained many a costly electronic item). And no, they did not reduce the bill as a result. Oy. more

Delicious! 11/22/2006

My parents and I have been doing brunch here for 4 years!!! I am vegan, they are not. So it's perfect, because the menu is wholly vegan with the exception of real egg dishes and a daily fish selection. The portions are large and the prices are small. There is superior attention paid to the detail of the ingredients and freshness of the food. Everything is made to your liking by a very friendly staff. Recommended: brunch special ( scrambled eggs or tofu with two bluberry pancakes and soy sausage patties), the BEST GRILLED VEGGIE sandwich in the world with crispy herbed homefries and slaw, chocolate cake, rasberry pie, stuffed mushrooms . . . YUM!! Pros: FRESH HEARTY food Cons: small more
