Amazing Food, Slow Service

As a vegan, there aren't many places I can eat out so Herbivore is a real paradise of choices for me. I love the fact that I can close my eyes and point to anything on the menu, and don't have to rule it out - everything is made with artificial meat. The pad thai is particularly good - it... read more

Ate here for lunch with a large group of friends who have varying food preferences. My husband, who is not really into vegan food at all, LOVED his spaghetti & "meat" balls dish. We were all really happy with our dishes, felt very satisfied, and the service and prices were great for our group. Wish we had an Herbivore in... More

I was excited to have a vegan breakfast so I.checked out Herbivore. I got there when it wasn't busy, which I like. It means the kitchen staff.isn't rushed with my food. I was debating between the savory crepes and french toast. I ended up getting the crepes with basil pesto.sauce on the side and basil tofu scramble to go. The... More

I'm neither vegan nor vegetarian, but I really enjoyed this place, especially the amazing breakfast. The chili and cornbread was also very good.

The menu was nice. The food was great! I had the nachos and they were very good. Herbivore is dog friendly. We ate outside and the servers brought water out in cups for our dogs to drink. We'll be back next time we're in Berkeley!

I love the variety of vegan food here. They have great soup, and the pancakes are awesome. A standout is the blueberry cornbread!

Heading home through the Bay Area after a weekend road trip we decided to have Mother’s Day lunch at Herbivore in Berkeley. As a vegan mom, I was really excited, and my twin vegetarian boys cheerily agreed to try it along with a few other moms-friends and family. I phoned a few weeks ahead of time to make a reservation...

We stopped in here after the lunch rush on a Tuesday. Service was surprisingly slow. We both ordered the Indonesian Noodle Salad. Flavors were nice, but we both commented that the dish was surprisingly unsatisfying. They really skimped on the tofu, greens, etc. The dish was mostly noodles! As we were traveling through, we didn't have the opportunity for a... More

We had a party of four for dinner. Several of us had diet restrictions and the staff was very patient, knowledgeable and accommodating. Aly was our waitress and she was great. I had a plate of grilled veggies that were fresh, flavorful and grilled perfectly. One of us had the ravioli that were cooked proper (not over-cooked) and had fresh... More

First, the wait staff is hilarious. And the food is amazing. You won't be disappointed, unless they're out of something!
