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.

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
