Their food was creative and organic. The vegetarian dishes were delicious. We went there on a really terrible rainy day and it totally changed our mood. Very reasonably priced !!

We really enjoyed our lunch here. Great options for vegans, great location on the Embarcadero. Seating is quite cozy inside but we enjoyed sitting outside along the water. I had the yellow curry bowl and loved it. Recommend!

Checked out the menu outside and decided to try it. They told us they were full and couldn't seat us so they pointed us to the take out area. While asking about food, etc, the owner asked us if we wanted to sit. He was nice enough to take us to the outside area of the restaurant, in the back.... More

Our family of four had brunch here at the suggestion of our concierge who knew we needed a restaurant equipped to handle the needs of our GF daughter. The menu options were limited for her, made even more so by being out of certain items, like the hummus and certain juices. She eventually decided on the Sambazon Bowl, which was... More

We had a Saturday brunch here (the restaurant opens at 10 on the weekend in the winter) and my colleagues had the eggs benedict which looked great. I had eggs on a risotto base and that was amazing. When combined with the great location and heated external seating it's a great atmosphere for a relaxed meal.

Had an early brunch (11am) with four very young children. Menu very good and staff most helpful. Food was very good. Place became quite busy by the time we left so reservations even mid week are advised.

Enjoyed the waterfront atmosphere despite the extremely stormy night...we sat out on the covered patio with heaters....still a wee bit chilly! Great organic menu perfect for the vegans and veggies in the family...but also a good choice of meaty dishes...especially liked the Duck with greens and veg cooked perfectly and the Beet Salad. Super lovely unique cocktails very enjoyable!

Nice space on the water, with an indoor portion and heated outdoor patio. Food was very good, with good options for vegans and gluten-free eaters as well as omnivores. Service was a bit strange - at least four different people brought things to or from our table - but attentive. We had made a reservation for 10am brunch, right when... More

The organic food a good selling point. The menu is fairly standard fare and the preparation was good too. However, other than the fact that its an organoc place you wouldn't seek it out the restaurant for the food. The vibe is embarcadero, so you like it for the water front, or you don't like it because it otherwise lacks... More

I came here twice when I was staying in the Marina district. It was convenient, walking distance from my Air B& B, and had good reviews on Happy Cow so I knew it was veg friendly. The juice bar menu did not disappoint! It had the traditional staples along with some creative concoctions. I bought three to take with me... More
