It's rough being vegan sometimes and this menu looked amazing. The food didn't live up to the descriptions. Nachos were soggy, salad uninspired and the server appeared not to even know what kombucha was. Weird for a veg-based place.

I've eaten here several times, both when I was a carnivore, as well as a pescatarian. Food is quite good, with a nice variety. Service is friendly, but sometimes the wait times they provide are quite wrong. i.e. "It will only be 20 minutes", and...More

We ate here with friends who insisted on having vegetarian food. I ordered the "impossible" meat vegetarian burger. I guess that this burger has been getting a lot of publicity. Well, the burger deserves all of that publicity. It really did look and taste like...More

The waiter recommended the cauliflower dish (on the appetizer menu) and it was delicious! It was almost a full meal. I also got soup, which was very good. Lots of vegan options. Most things (if not everything) can be made vegan. And great service!

This is a great restaurant for vegans and vegetarians, but our friends and my husband eat meat. We go there often and no one complains about the occasional vegetarian meal. It is very low key, the noise level is acceptable and the menu is varied....More
