Wish there were more places like this for those wanting good vegetarian/vegan food. The servings are decent size and the large menu has lots of delicious items to choose from. We liked most of what we ordered, although no one in our group liked the Harvest Bowl, which was a new item. It just was not flavored well at all.... More

I guess it's the trend now. Like Pieology, you pick the ingredients and they cook it. I love this place. Nice, clean, trendy restaurant with plenty of seats and great service. The food is excellent too.

We went there for an early dinner. I ordered Santa Fe chicken burger with a side of onion rings on the recommendation of one of the staff who spotted us and was prompt to help. My husband wasn't hungry and just had mac-n-cheese and lemonade. The place is contemporary and has really nice outside seating. We loved the setting and... More

We live around the corner from the UCI Center Veggie Grill. We love the buffalo wings and the buffalo wings salad. My husband, who hates 'healthy food' even likes the nachos! The staff is very courteous and they are open later than many restaurants in OC.

The Baja Fiesta salad is THE best. Their soups and chili have great flavor. They have done amazing things with making no-meat chicken and burgers. That said, if you get soup or chili or salad or yummy sweet potato fries to GO, the portions seems much smaller than what I got staying there. The inside during lunch rush is NOISY... More

Saw the reviews on tripadvisor for this one and decided to try it. Wasn't disappointed. I thought the prices were very reasonable for lunch. They are in a shopping complex next to theaters with lots of parking spaces nearby. Came at the peak of lunch time, so had to wait a couple of minutes for a seat inside. They also... More

I have been impressed with Veggie Grill ever since I first discovered them in 2009. I love their variety, consistency and quality with the food. When they added the Buffalo Wings, I was really impressed with the taste. Just really great food and the staff is amazingly friendly.

Veggie Grill isn't just for vegans or vegetarians. Wonderful salads, creative menu, and the most delicious non-dairy chocolate parfait I've ever had. I've tried several dishes on the menu, and loved them all. This restaurant is located in the Irvine Spectrum Mall, with cute outdoor tables. Not expensive, great "secret spot", and I highly recommend it. Especially great for lactose... More
