Great but not for everyone

this is not for everyone since it's vegan but I have no qualms recommending it to groups of people with a variety of needs.

I really wanted to like this and was looking forward to a highly rated vegan restaurant. We started with two appetizers. My husband (not a vegan)ordered green beans that were so salty he sent them back. And he is someone who puts salt on almost everything. I agreed it was just inedible. To their credit they took this off of... More

I give this a "very good" only for the One dish I had there which was the Caesar Salad...The menu here is minimal and is written/created for the tourists and transplants into this lovely mountain town. This is NOT local fare by any stretch...however.... it is farm to table delicious, but NOT what a true local would put on their... More

This is an entirely different vegan restaurant. I've been a vegan over a year (yes, we have vegans in Texas) and have never seen anyone prepare vegan this good. I didn't look but I'm pretty sure there was a 5 star chef in the kitchen. Sadly, it's only open for dinner. I almost cried every day passing by it at... More

Nothing great and if people think the food was that special they need to eat in some Vegan restaurants in California. To me the food was just average but over priced for the amount you got. I doubt that I will eat there again.

We knew it would be good, but it completely exceeded our expectations and they were already high. Not one of the best vegan meals we've had... One of the best meals we've had. Best restaurant in Asheville... Without question.

Beautifully arranged vegetarian dishes with wonderful flavor. I never knew vegetables could be used in so many innovative ways! Try the cheese, it is so good.

I was very satisfied all around with Plant. Service was attentive, plating timed perfectly, cocktails creatively done and food full of flavor. I especially loved the Lemongrass Seitan entree and Carrot Cake dessert. More restaurants should aspire to get it all done as perfectly as Plant does.

First of all, I'm lacto-ovo vegetarian, which means I tend to like spicier foods. Bland is boring, especially because I like the complex flavors in fish/fowl/meat. So when I find a restaurant willing to take chances, find new flavor combinations that titillate my tongue, I am one happy camper! This is one of those rare places. I have eaten at... More
