Stopped by in our way through Asheville, and we weren't disappointed. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Every bit of food was amazing. The risotto was the best I've ever had, vegan or no. And we could bring our dog (outside seating, obviously). I can't recommend Plant enough.

Delicious and gluten-free friendly. The service was good, and so as the ambiance. It's pricey, but the food is really great.

What can I say? This is the best vegetarian dining experience I have had to date. The things Jason Sellers and his team do with vegetables would satisfy even die-hard carnivores. Inventive, healthy and ethical dishes taking the the gate to plate philosophy to fresher heights. The staff were great, knowledgeable and explained the menu thoroughly. The sense of calm... More

Such a great place! Get the cheese plate and the celery water! Healthy, fresh and soooo good! Just a tip... If you sit outside you'll be hearing traffic:)

I was looking for a delicious restaurant while staying in Asheville. Plant hit the nail on the head! Everything was delicious. I ended up ordering a couple of appetizers (to sample things on their menu - since everything was so different). The waitress was so kind to explain things to me as there were ingredients that I had never heard... More

Everything on this menu is amazing and impeccable. I have been a vegetarian my entire life and have come across few meals that compare. If you have a chance to eat here, take it and don't look back. You may even be converted to vegan-ism if you can figure out how to recreate their dishes.

Gluten-free, vegan, healthy, clean, knowledgeable staff and delicious flavors of fresh ingredients. What more could you want? We enjoyed our entrees of differing sizes. Several people around us ordered two smaller plates as well as entrees. Their portions are smaller than average dining sizes. We were saving room for dessert! And what their portions may lack in size, the flavors... More

I am in a mixed marriage. I am vegetarian and my husband is not. He is vege-tolerant enough though that I can usually talk him into a few meals a year at a vegetarian establishment and Thursday night was my lucky night. We started out with the Jerusalem artichokes (he likes artichokes so I didn't bother to mention any differences).... More

Great food! I loved the combinations of colors and flavors in the plates. That's definitely one of the best vegetarian restaurants on my list!

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