I had dinner there with a mixed crowd. The vegans were soooo happy. I only eat there with vegans, otherwise I eat elsewhere.

Plant is an outstanding restaurant, and it's even better because it's vegan. No meat, dairy or eggs in anything. The atmosphere is cool, not fancy, with an open kitchen. Servers know the food and give great advice when choosing entrees. Our Jerusalem artichoke appetizer was incredible - just like roasted artichoke hearts, maybe better. Hubby had a raw burrito that...

I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. I went with 2 friends who were carnivores and they also loved it. The creativity of the dishes is amazing. I always say nothing has to die for you to eat and this places proves it. We had the fried plantains and roasted Jerusalem artichokes for apps and I had walnut... More

I was put off by this place w/in one minute when they refused to cut a birthday cake that wasn't vegan as "it will contaminate our kitchen". Well, cut it at the table then! Things didn't get much better when we asked for a vodka drink only to be told "we only recently opened the bar and we only have... More

Wasn't sure about a vegan option, especially considering that the bf can't do without his mealtime meat, but all four of the entrees ordered at our table were delicious!

Let me start by saying that my husband (a part time vegan) said that if there were Michelin stars given out for Vegan Restaurants, that Plant should get one. Everything about the experience at Plant are amazing. From the service, to the warm and welcoming atmosphere. The food is expertly crafted, always delicious, and beautifully presented. Their passion is the... More

Everything on this menu is exquisite: fresh, creatively presented, and hugely flavorful. The service matches the high quality of the food as well.

I have lived 11 years in NYC and 7 in Boston and eaten at some of the best restaurants one could hope for. We ate at Plant tonight and I have decreed it the best restaurant I have ever eaten in! The Plantains with a sour cream made from cashews and "bacon" made from shiitake mushrooms were astounding! The red... More

I always eat here at least once while visiting my son (vegan) in Asheville. The food is amazing even for non vegetarians/vegans. All dishes have a light and fresh touch using local ingredients. Save room for their homemade "ice cream" (vegan friendly).

Casual, open kitchen, and good service. Since we're not vegan, the meal was a new and delicious experience for us. Staff was friendly and knowledgable and we didn't feel like "fish out of water"! Even if you're a "meat and potatoes kind of person, try this restaurant......you won't be disappointed and your taste buds will thank you!
