“So bad all around I can't even give it another try”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Food was of bad quality, tasted like it was prepared in a microwave. The new waitress had not seemed to be trained on the menu or restaurant concept but what made that hard was the owners were rude about correcting her mistakes. The price was really high for the tiny portions and non edibility. Is that a word? I was sure they wouldn't last another year but was surprised to see all the positive reviews.

“Don't need to be a vegetarian to love this food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

I went with a group of friends for a birthday celebration. Wide selection, and everything from the appetizers, entrees and desserts was fantastic! Even those of us who aren't vegetarian were more than satisfied. They also have some delicious smoothies, as well as a decent selection of wine and beer.
I'll definitely return to this spot to try some of the other dishes.
Great service.

“Not a vegetarian or vegan, love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Went on a whim with some friends and absolutely loved it. Not only is the atmosphere cozy and the service excellent, but the food is outstanding. I have tried many of the entrees and appetizers, ranging from purely vegetable based dishes to meat substitutes and it has all been excellent. What I noticed the first time I went and found intriguing was looking around and noticing EVERYONE ordering dessert. For some reason, it was especially striking because I don't feel like I see that many people order dessert when they go out to dinner (myself included). Well, we caved into the peer pressure and were not disappointed. Must try!

“Looking for healthy choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

I have been to the Red Lentil twice and enjoyed the food both times. I seek out places that do not have processed foods.

The food here is unique, tasty and very refreshing. The atmosphere is cozy and quaint. A great place for a quick, casual night out.
