Amazing flavor!

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.

This restaurant is amazing. It can be difficult to find vegetarian or vegan food that is exciting, complex, and so very delicious. Thank you Plant for making it happen.

We're vegetarians and plan ahead to see what restaurants will meet our needs. We were thrilled to read about Plant and hoped it was as good as the reviews suggested - it was! I'm glad we made reservations as most all of the tables inside were taken (and we arrived at 5:45 - only 15 minutes after they opened!) After... More

My husband and I went here on New Year's Eve in 2014. We are vegetarians and wanted some healthy, tasty food to start us on the right track for the year. We met some very friendly people who live in Asheville and rave about it. The food was delicious, although I do not remember the particular dishes we got. I... More

Tops of its type, not necessarily the healthiest in all dishes, but not the least healthy either. But SUPER TASTY. Any omni or veg eater would like it. Great cookbook for sale here that features this and similar restaurants around the globe, with recipes.

I came here with some friends, one of whom was vegan- she loved it but the rest of us were disappointed. The food did seem to be made from high quality ingredients and I could see why people who regularly eat vegan meals would like it. I ordered one of the larger, more expensive entrees but I found that it... More

I was a bit skeptical, because I'm not vegan or even vegetarian, but I must admit the food was fantastic. It was difficult to order because I didn't really know what I was eating but the menu clarifies all the ingredients. The food is fantastic. The presentation is beautiful. The wait staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. You will never... More

I always love to check out vegan restaurants. Although I'm not a full time vegan I do like good vegan food and this was great! The service was good. We had the beets which were amazing! My husband had the sugar snap peas which were really good too. For a main I had the tofu dish which was excellent and... More

Take this from someone who is neither vegetarian nor vegan and normally finds those kinds of dishes either mushy or slimy: this place is top notch. I came into Plant thinking we would have a quick dinner and I would soon be stopping somewhere else for "seconds" and I could not have been more wrong. Everything we tried was delicious,... More

I was very happy with my experience at Plant. Others have mentioned that it is a bit overpriced, which I can't necessarily argue, but I would still go back. We both ordered the Caesar salad and I LOVED it. The "bacon" was a fantastic substitute for real bacon. I decided to order a dessert because I was so excited to... More
