Nice selection of choices. The menu indicates what is gluten free, or vegan, etc. It's great to have a restaurant that has vegetarian choices. We found this by accident. Not sure if they advertise but they should!

My husband and I are not vegetarians, but we ate here on our condo owners recommendation. We had a very good meal. My husband had the Ahi Tuna, and he said it was excellent (the best prepared on our trip). I had the vegetable lasagne and mine was very good, and more than I could eat. We tried the vegan... More

As a vegan this was a great find! The service was wonderful, the food was great and as I stated the key lime pie tasted just like I remembered it did pre-veg. The spinach gyoza is great, falafel sandwich was extremely good and the brown sugar acorn squash was delicious and different and obviously the key lime pie is a... More

Shockingly, this was not what I expected. Had the fried polenta and marina for appetizer. That was good. Falafel for lunch and the best thing about it was the sweet potato fries. Wait staff was uninterested and food mediocre. So sorry as I really wanted this to knock my socks off.

We ate here at least once a day during our 7 days. The food is outstanding. Nice place. I would suggest the eggplant meatball sub, kale Caesar salad, and egg roles. Portion sizes are huge! I would highly recommend. One of the servers recognized for coming in each day and gave us a special treat. Indicative of the positive reviews.

We ordered the peanut noodles w/ edamame and red pepper, veggie burger bites(key lime dipping sauce) and the polenta(the red sauce is incredible). The gyoza dumplings and truffle fries are also very good. I love it here b/c it's so consistently wonderful with service and incredible food!

Loved this place! Wanted to keep coming back for more. I got the mint iced tea and liked it so much i asked for the recipe to make it at home, and I am drinking it now while I write this in fact. I ordered the pasta and it was awesome.

After a disastrous previous visit for Sunday brunch we decided to give this place one more try. After all, they were slammed at the time and obviously were short staffed. Interestingly, as soon as we entered the restaurant on this second visit our server immediately recognized us even though he had not waited on us previously. Right away he acknowledged... More

The food was very good and I would recommend the burrito for a non-vegetarian. The home made watermelon/lime juice was however a bit overpriced ($6) and not that great.

We were looking forward to eating here as key west has poor choices for vegetarians. Unfortunately despite 2 out of 4 dishes being good the pizza was the worst we had ever had. There was far too much topping plonked on a base that tasted as if it has been cooked before the topping was added. Very poor. I hope... More
