    My favorite of all of the Whole Foods in NYC. The sushi bar is great for a quick lunch and the beer garden is fun as well. Check out lines can get super long after work

    The catering department the manger is rude. I needed a small fruit platter, you would think 24 hours would be enough notice. Apparently not. The store manager wasn't much help either.

    Love this place! They have such an awesome drink selection! Definitely try the samples they offer, you just might find your new favorite item!

    Less crowded than the one at 59th street. Convienently located to a lot of trains. Tends to be more expensive but awesome produce and meat.

    Fave. Quality produce and sales on fruit on Fridays. Get some wild salmon burgers and ask the counter staff to "overwrap" them for you. Good bottled sauces at fish counter too (red miso, chimichurri).

    Akiko Bombita · September 13, 2014
  • Habiba

    One of the least crowded Whole Foods in the city. This and the TriBeCa WF.

    Habiba · August 29, 2014
  • Jaycob B.

    Whatever you do, don't get mixed up as to when it's your turn on line for checkout. Things will get ugly

    Jaycob Burns · August 12, 2014
  • Park Slope Notary

    Bring your own travel mug for .15 discount for java or tea. Better than that green logo coffee place which they discount you a mere .05.

    Can't beat the #6.99 breakfast bar. Best time is 8 am..no lines & Fresh food

    Sameepa Shetty · May 25, 2014
  • Stephanie M.

    Go at 8am as soon as they open! Fresh food and lovely and quiet! Don't go at 7:30-8pm, tired staff and long queues!

    I love this Whole Foods! I'm pretty sure you could run a small business in the atrium.

    Zanalee Zee · October 11, 2013

    Less crowded than the one at 59th street. Not the best cashier but still an amazing supermarket

  • Sashay S.

    Love coming here, but they are a little pricey. However, they're worth every penny. I usually come here to buy some "Against the Grain" rolls. They're gluten-free, and they are delish!

    Sashay Shonté · July 4, 2013
  • Harlem A.

    If you live uptown, visit this WholeFoods to avoid the 59th street location madness. Healthy alternative to C-Town. Tasty prepared foods. The wine store, next door, is perfect for $3 bottles of bliss.

    All W.F. trees are 7'-8' & they are all $49.99. We have been paying >$100 for a similar tree uptown & people commonly pay 2 or 3 times that downtown. Tree was very fresh. We will do this again.

    Tim Johnson · December 4, 2012
  • Eric F.

    If you only have a couple of items, check out at the coffee bar. It'll save you the lengthy nightly line.

    Eric Fleming · November 16, 2012
  • Leslie U.

    Great place to get a little bit of something you really don't want at home because you will eat all of it!

    Leslie Upchurch · September 29, 2012
  • Sarit W.

    I'm watching 2 separate people eat their food while waiting in line...longest check out process of any Whole Foods in the history of Whole Foods.

    Sarit Wishnevski · September 16, 2012
  • R L.

    Be vocal when waiting in line. People will try to cut and the register staff won't care and ignore you. Makes me second guess coming here.

    This is actually a great place to study--free wifi for 2 hours and lots of seating/outlets.

    Betsy Eichel · September 8, 2012
  • Sandy C.

    I love this place, but I can't work here. It's either too hot or too cold. There are too many screaming babies. And the wifi is slower than dial up.

    Sandy Campbell · July 23, 2012
  • Charles S.

    Worth making time just to see what is stock in the bulk grain section. They have a nut butter grinder; grains; beans; dried fruit and nuts. Amazing selection that is kept fresh.

    Charles Smith · July 19, 2012
  • Sandy C.

    No more gelato. They couldn't regulate the temperature of the freezer good enough, and by day two it would be all soft.

    Did you know that the air in the average U.S. home is 5 times more polluted than outside air? Use our VOC-free All Purpose Cleaner to effectively remove grease, grime and dirt without the harsh fumes.

  • Jessica L.

    Terrible setup for register lines. When it's busy, you can't get to the drinks or the specialty food bar.

  • New York Habitat

    Sick and tired of New York’s unhealthy food? Then this organic food store is the place for you. The store at 7th Ave has helpful employees and is often less crowded than the one at Columbus Circle.

    Boost your day with a BluePrintJuice. Our special hydraulic press uses seven tons of pressure to extract every drop of goodness our fruits and veggies have to give.

    Salad bar doesn't have the selection that Columbus Circle has, but there are plenty of spots for charging electronic devices!
