The food at Plant is not just good vegan food. It is just plain amazing food. If you want to have dinner here, make reservations a good week in advance. We love the smoked portobello mushroom and the curry. The hummus starter is always amazing....More

Delicious upscale vegan food. We shared small plates; large plates and desert. Everything we tried was fantastic. If you plan to go, I suggest a reservation.

Maybe I’m biased because I have eaten at some of the best vegan places in LA, Raleigh and West Palm Beach, but I just felt Plant didn’t live up to all the hype. Walking in, it didn’t have the high end vibe it portrayed online....More

Plant is where we take almost every guest who visits us because the food is of such high quality. Delicious. Beautiful. Satisfying. Everything is made in house. It's all seasonal and much of it is local. There isn't anything like it. And it's consistently fantastic....More

Plant is a small place and a bit upscale: it has a touch of class and elegance, meant for adults in my opinion. It might not be the best place to bring children.
