We order some chili and it looked more like a mexican dish, the chilli had more rice than actually meat. The yucca soup it was water with tomato paste and the cubano spring rolls looked more like hot pockets. Worst restaurant I ever been in NY. Food taste horrible.

We went early on a Friday night and the place seemed pretty busy but we were seated right away. Our waiter warned us that he was going off shift and someone else would be taking over, but we never saw that other person - had to ask the bus boy for our check. The original waiter was friendly and offered tastings of the wines they offer - which is not a large selection and does not include chardonnay. I had the hummus plate appetizer which was ok - the hummus was bland, the pita was bland, but the veggies that came with it were good. I also had the steak sandwich, which came with a huge mound of good fries, but the stead wasn't sliced so it was nearly impossible to eat and the chipotle mayo was a bit too spicy. The other person in my party had the pizza appetizer - nothing special. I probably would not return.

My best friend's been vegetarian her entire life, and she and I always love coming here when we're in the neighborhood. Whatever they put in that bread, it's absolutely addictive. The first time I had an almond burger, which was a bit on the mushy side but still flavorful. The second time I had a butternut squash ravioli with pine nuts. Everything was always fresh and tastey! The staff was friendly, interesting, and sociable. My favorite thing was the free oolong tea! Me being cheap, I always like having a free alternative to water. Definitely check it out!

The food is okay. The service is awful.
Worst meal I've had in New York
By zuli on 11/20/2008
The food was beyond average. This place is a really bad attempt at someone cashing in on the 'natural health conscious' market by a person who has probably never eaten a healthy - let alone vegetarian meal in their life. They serve up inedible bland slop. I thought i was in a gruel kitchen. And the ambience has the vibe of a bad 80's sports bar... served by guys that look like bouncers in black shirts with bad cologne. I'm not sure how further from natural u can get. I initially went based on the reviews on this site - which i now realize upon second reading - are all fake.

A large group of us went to Spring Street Natural for lunch today. Yummy! All of us were just raving about our meals. Hearty, diverse selection. Meat dishes, vegetarian dishes and vegan dishes. Healthy but they didn't seem "granola" -- it was just obviously fresh, clean, healthy ingredients. Not greasy. A nice big space too, they had no problem seating our group of 9. Though we did have a reservation. I would absolutely go back and i would definitely take friends even if they aren't into healthy food as they can still get a burger.

I used to be one who was automatically turned off by the word natural or organic in restaurant names. This turned out to be one of the best places I have been in New York so far. The jazz on thursday nights its amazing and perfect for a romantic dinner. The food was unbelievable and has brought me back many times. Truly a gem.
Well prepared food and attentive service

The Sunday brunch menu offered a nice variety of interesting choices for meat eaters and vegans. The wait staff was patient and knowledgeable and attentive. Great coffee (Organic/Free Trade)and good food for very reasonable prices. Very relaxing decor - lots of room between tables and near interesting boutiques and the Spring Street Subway stop.
