When you order soup, I expect soup. Not a bowl full of croutons already added. I am allergic to wheat and I don't appreciate paying for croutons I can't eat and don't want. I expect a full bowl of soup. This place is a rip off.

We had a reservation on a Saturday night but still had to wait 20 min to be seated- it was a little hectic, quite a few people were repeatedly asking when they'd be seated. But to their defense, it was a Saturday night and they just had a

I would not go to this restaurant because I am a diabetic and they do not provide nutrition information.I eat organic and all natural but even organic food can be bad for a diabetic depending on how it is prepared. I contacted the company

This is my favorite go-to restaurant! I've been going there for years and have always had great experiences! Start with the wonderful tea (or just go there for the tea)! Its wonderful and I buy it by pound to take home, but it just seems

I love knowing the the menu selections are healthy and made with ingredients that are good for me. I love their soups and healthy breads and always enjoy a cup of Good Earth Tea

I had a fundraiser for the Breast Cancer 3-Day last year and Good Earth donated a variety of muffins. AMAZING! They were all so wonderful. One of the favorites by everyone was the Carrot Cake Muffin. It was nice to know that everything was natural.

Yesterday I went to The Good Earth and ordered the Mediterranean Plate and the chicken skewers. The Mediterranean plate had a blonde hair in the spread. I pushed it aside and ate one of the chicken skewers. When I picked up the second skewer there was a black hair on it. My friend was barely able to get his burger down. They did take care of the bill and apologize, but did nothing to try and get us back for another visit. My first and last time there.

Excellent. The dish was as good as the description. The vegetables were tendercrisp and the flavor was not overpowering. The menu listed that the dish was topped with pistaschios, but the server informed me at the time that I ordered that slivered almonds had been substituted due to a recall on the pistaschios. Serving size was more than enough for two people. The carry out holder was plastic, and not recyclable in the trash. However, if you're crafty, you could clean it and used it to store craft supplies since it was clear. Service was excellent and, although not required by me, the server wasn't friendly, but professional.

Good Earth has been going strong for over 25 years. I never tire of the amazing tea, the wonderful natural foods, great desserts and good service. The ambience has only gotten better over the years, as decor has changed with the times and been updated. Servers are pleasant, management warm and friendly. I went when my kids were little, and now both my boys work there, one serving and one hosting. It appeals to both young and old and us inbetweeners. Here's to another 25 years!

Pros: Fabulous Food

Cons: Have yet to find one

.

This place is kind of cut-and-dry. Seems like this sort of restaurant attracts snobs and weirdos. Both times I've gone, the servers had clearly done too much acid in their day.

Food is good and so are the juices. I like the Vegamary, even though the name could be 1000 times more creative.

I like this place but I wish it weren't so pretentious and commercialized.

Pros: Natural Foods (So I've been told), Tastiness

Cons: Service is mediocre, Feels like a Country Kitchen

Dirty cups/forks. Forgetful server who should go back to working at Perkin's. Orders came out wrong. Not impressed at all the eagan location is much much better

I love this place! I have tried numerous dishes and quite a few desserts and all have not been wrong. The Chicken Satay is wonderful and my husband craves their nachos and begs to go. Breakfast is wonderful as well and is a family favorite for Mother's Day! We are very healthy and eat most organic and natural food and this is the only restaurant I will eat at. I have been there at least 20 times and never had a bad experience either service or food. The Strawberry Shortcake when on the menu is some of the best I have ever had!

Heard about this place decided to give it a shot.Hmm the ambience is like an old bakers square or perkins style. So i was kinda thrown off. So I tried the Organic Oj and wheat grass. My Friend had the protien smoothie. The meals, I had the thai spicy chicken noodles, and my friend had the bison burger. So over all the meals where kinda not worth the price. So for health wise it's ok, The clientel is fat and old people. The service was good, but food is very average. kinda like a big bowl organic ripoff style. Not worth a revisit.

Pros: Great service waiter rocked.

Cons: Terrible ambience over priced bland food

.

This was difficult, because I absolutely loved the menu, and the food was really good. I had the Harvest Wrap, which was phenomenal, and my fiance had the turkey meatloaf.

However, like other users, we were incredibly disappointed with the service. My drink sat empty almost the entire meal. We never saw our waitress after we ordered our food (another server gave us our food) and then I had to hunt someone down to pay for the bill. (This was AFTER waiting 20 minutes for her to come)

I will also probably stick to the take out option, rather than dining there again, just because I loved the food so much.

I am a long-term patron of Good Earth. I have gone here for well over 15 years, often having business meetings over breakfast or lunch. I also go with family for dinners on a regular basis - both small groups and large groups. This is a place you can come and find healthier treatments of standard fare, food that tastes good and won't haunt you later. The beer and wine menu is not meant to be high-end, just a nice complement to the food. Fairly priced, good value reliable healthy theme, nice deck when it's warm. The service here is usually good, but you shouldn't come if you're in a rush. There can be a line. The long-standing rule is to call when you're en-route and they will put your name on the list.

So - Single bad service experiences aside, this place is on our top 5 list of reliable, healthy family restaurants in the area. Many of these reviews are way too harsh and do not line up with my experience.

I went with my friend recently on a Monday afternoon. Our server was friendly but extremely unprofessional. When we each ordered a glass of wine, she asked to see our ID's. We are both college students so it was not a suprise to us until she told us she couldn't serve us! She did not know how to read ID's and had to check with her manager. Furthermore, she did not know anything about the wines when we asked her opinion on what to order. She then proceeded to bring out two separate entrees after we explained we were going to split one. We had to ask another server to bring our check, and after she dropped it off she came back to pick it up before I was even done counting my cash.
The food was great (thai chicken wrap and greek salad platter), wine was mediocre, service horrible. I'm ordering takeout next time.

As a patron of the Good Earth for many years, I would like to express my satisfaction regarding one of my favorite restaurants in the Twin Cities. The Good Earth offers a leisurely atmosphere and an attentive staff ready to accommodate your needs. From Thai noodles to planet burgers to edamame, The Good Earth truly provides a variety of palatable choices. The best part is that whether it be a glass of milk, fresh field greens or free range chicken, you can always be ensured organic fresh quality. My personal favorite is their almond tuna melt sandwich; a hearty slice of whole grain toast topped with tasty tuna salad, mozzarella cheese, pickles, and toasted almonds makes a delicious complement. With convenient thirty minute call ahead seating, and an efficient host staff, one need not wait long to obtain seating. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Most unpleasant experience of any restaurant visit ever! Immediately upon being seated with three of my friends right next to the kitchen doorway a nice booth nearby was vacated. I asked the waitress if we could move to it and we were told that we could not because it was not our turn to be seated! Unbelievable!! The food was OK --- the service was OK --- some of my friends enjoyed it, I was less impressed. The final insult was when the waitress told us that we could not pay with other than a credit card or a check unless we could give her the exact amount of the invoice. What was her problem, unable to make change??? I will NOT return!

This restaurant has been foundering for a few years. There was some problem with the kitchen help and quality of food a few years ago. But now it seems that the waitstaff is under some duress to put on a very happy face and is getting it all wrong.

I have experienced everything from waitresses so hysterically happy and seeming to be on something to the boiling anger of a skinny waiter who made me wonder if he was going to "do something" to my food tonight.

It "seems" to be a good restaurant, but I won't be back ever again. I have the feeling that the management is doing something very wrong here.

We've visited that Good Earth in the Galleria many times, and really enjoy the environment & decor, so we expected the same for Roseville. Which isn't the case. It appears that this location was renovated from a previous Denny's (or something similar), and poorly at that. We were lucky because it was warm, so we sat outside, which was much more pleasant, quiet, and relaxing. The food was good, the heirloom tomatoes are in season right now, so we had one of their pizzas that was on the specials menu, the artichoke dip was just ok, the salmon cake was overcooked but good, and the spa pasta was delightful. Service was good and accommodating.

I went with my boyfriend and we were seated quickly and our server paid the right amount of attention to us. Being vegetarian, I was expecting a place like this to have more vegetarian choice. I ordered a grilled veggie sandwich and my boyfriend ordered a thai noodle dish- both were good- but not phenomenal. We ordered lemon cake for desert, it was slightly disappointing- not enough lemon taste for me. Overall, it's worth a try and I would be willing to go back to try other things.

I've been here a few times and the food is always good, but last time I went I ordered the 'Planet Burger' and have thinking about it ever since. It's their homemade veggie burger, and is not filled with rice and beans like so many other bland vegetarian burgers. There are cashews in it, which give it a really nice flavor as well as consistency. I did not order cheese on it and didn't miss it one bit. I also got the iced mango green tea which was refreshing and not sweet.

The customer service is excellent, and the food is delicious no matter what you eat. While the decor isn't earth-shattering, it is actually a plus because the setting is very comfortable and friendly for people who aren't health obsessed. While the wait can be long during peak times(the post-church Sunday brunch rush), you can call your name in ahead and then pretty much go straight to your seat when you get there! While you're there, try the healthy shakes- to die for!!!

This is one of our all-time favorites, whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner (even late). The staff is always friendly. The waits to get in can be way too long, but when the food arrives, all is forgiven. The fact that the food is organically grown is a real plus for us, but it would still be a favorite if not for that.

One of the few places in Roseville you can get a decent vegetarian meal. The food isn't the best you'll ever find, but it's certainly better than average. The decor may remind you of your dentist's waiting room, but Good Earth sure beats the Applebee's down the street.

The Good Earth is one of the few places I can go and really have a hard time deciding what to order. Almost everything on the menu looks so good, and I feel good about eating it because most of it is pretty healthy. The tea is excellent -- I get a cup every time I go. And I love the rolls and flatbread that are served before the meal. If you are looking for a semi-vegetarian and/or healthy restaurant, try Good Earth.
