Omnivores love Plant

We were not disappointed after several omnivores recommended vegan restaurant Plant. They get everything right - aroma, texture, presentation. Even the vegan desserts are scrumptious.

Presentation, Flavor, Creativity - even if you do not eat vegan this restaurant has amazing food. Start with the Fried Plantains, they were so delicious. Order a cocktail they make great drinks. Marsala was great, loved their presentation of this amazing food.

My companion and I had first visited Plant last fall, and we enjoyed it enough to book reservations this time. There was a heck of a rainstorm this time, but it was worth venturing out in the gross weather. The broccoli starter had an amazing white sauce I'll be trying to recreate at home (I'm going to look at the... More

We heard about plant over breakfast at a B&B in the Chapel Hill area - we were headed to Asheville next, so we made sure to book a dinner reservation right away. The food was wonderful - creative, full of flavor, and beautifully served in a casual atmosphere. Coming from NYC, we were impressed with the prices and the size... More

We came upon this restaurant by chance and it will now be a regular for us when we come to Asheville. My husband is a meat eater and I'm vegetarian and we both found the food to be really wonderful. Very well seasoned and creative. Friendly service, good wine and a pleasant atmosphere.

Visited Plant for dinner while in Asheville and we were totally blown away. Literally the best food I've ever eaten, vegan or not. The way the chefs incorporated the various flavors and just the smoothness of these flavors was amazing. Absolute must if in the area. Tremendous food, great staff too. A little pricey and kinda small inside but these... More

I was with friends who wanted a Vegan restaurant , so I enjoyed my meal because I was with them. I, however, am a non-Vegan, so chose what seemed like the most likely to please choice...a Caesar salad. It was quite good. I can say the Vegan food was presented beautifully, and my friends seem to think it was quite... More

I got the lasagna and my husband got the hummus. Both were delicious, innovative, creatively made, fresh and we felt super healthy and good when we left. If you are vegan, this is the place for you!

Had a bit of trepidation going to a vegan restaurant, but my wife had eaten there before and assured me I would love it. Sure enough, it was a fabulous meal. Creative, incredibly tasty, brilliantly presented, and I can't believe I left there stuffed. Almost couldn't finish my dessert, which is never a problem. I'm gluten-free, so it's not like... More

I'm vegetarian but rarely enjoy vegan. Always seems like it's missing something to me. Not here! So much flavor in every dish. We did a few small plates and loved all of them. The vegan cheese plate was sooooo good! This has now become a must for us when in Asheville.
