Our expectations were quite high as it is not usual to find a completely vegan restaurant. We've eaten in them when we can find them and know a lot about this cuisine. It's possible we are being over critical at a time when we need more of this type of restaurant. To be fair, the couple sitting at the table... More

This was a gourmet's dream! Don't let "vegan" dissuade from eating there! The food was wonderfully prepared, beautifully plated and very delicious. They even have the most lovely ice cream made from coconut milk...can't tell the difference from "regular"...try the PB&J ice cream, you won't be disappointed!!

The food in this place is absolutely amazing! The food is so flavorful, beautiful and filling! every single dish that our server (who was great!) brought was delicious, from appetizer to desert! Starting us off, we had a small dish of clover salad, and the appetizer was Jerusalem artichokes with purple potato chips and a lemon cream sauce. Main dishes... More

The menu had a variety of interesting combinations, which was a nice change of pace. So often vegetarian restaurants lack imagination. After I was seated, they served an amuse bouche of pickled potatoes. Nice touch. Waitstaff was knowledgeable about the various dishes. I ordered the blistered shishito peppers based on the waitstaff's assurances that these peppers were mild. Unfortunately, there... More

Neither my husband nor I are vegans or even vegetarians, but we do like to eat healthy and based on the rave reviews on TA, decided to take a chance on Plant. Plant is small and unassuming. The kitchen is right there in front of you, but I found it interesting to watch them work. They're professional and seem to... More

When looking to eat green, you often settle for clean without imagination or creativity. Not here! This was probably the most satisfying vegan meal either of us have ever had…… no exaggeration. Take that, Alice Waters! The food was eclectic and each bite of everything we had was so drenched in flavor that it took us a surprisingly long time... More

While Plant is one of only two totally vegan restaurants where I've ever eaten, it definitely served me the best vegetarian/vegan food that I've tasted in my life. I was very impressed with both the food and atmosphere, and will definitely go back when I'm in Asheville again.

Had to try it based on their reviews, I thought it was expensive for what it was. Had a few small plates, they were good, but we did not enjoy our entrees. Service was good. Would give 1/2 more point, between poor and average.
