We are visiting from Boston and found this great sounding vegan restaurant. Two out of three of us are vegetarians and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Service was excellent-- the waitress was amiable and knew the menu inside and out and was happy to recommend her favorites. For appetizers/small plates we shared the delicious green beans, tasty bok choy... More

OMG! Great food will be found at this wonderful restaurant. I thought I'd go hungry after eating dinner here. Nope! Everything tastes sooo good. I had to ask them a few times if this was really just plant based food...answer was always "Yes!" Highly recommended. Trendy cool place.

But my daughters convinced me to accompany them to Plant last night. I was very pleasantly surprised - there were many choices of starters, entrees, and desserts. All were very good, especially the chocolaty dessert (not sure what it was called). I guess "good" is the wrong word. I would describe it as "incredible". This was an interesting experience for...

It is simply amazing what they can do with tofo and all the natural ingredients used! Another incredible meal, we won't wait a year to come back. Service was also oustanding and gracious.

The food here is a bit pricey but it is truly amazing. It is hard to describe the flavors and combinations that they provide. Great place to take "vegan skeptics" for an amazing meal.

Don't be put off by the modest unassuming building, inside the restaurant's ambiance reflected the fine dining its known for. When we first walked in, we all noticed the sensational and enticing aroma of delicious food. We had high expectations and they were exceeded. Everything from appetizers through desserts were outstanding. We had wine and beer but I'm not sure... More

Plant is housed in a very unassuming grey cinderblock building right across from the new Harris Teeter grocery store complex. They have been doing outstanding vegetarian dishes for a few years now. I am never disappointed. When I am in the mood for something really tasty, but something that is going to make me feel really good about what I... More

My wife and I had an amazing meal for our 5th anniversary. We are both meat eaters but do enjoy vegan cuisine. We were very impressed with the depth of flavor, the creativity, and the service. We will be back soon!

Rated one of the 6 best fine dining vegan restaurants in the US by PETA and well deserving (traveled extensively and formerly lived in NYC so lots of vegan fine dining experience). Small, intimate and really only family friendly early in the evening. We've been many, many times and will be many more. If you're in Asheville and vegetarian/vegan (and... More

Vegan or not, you can bring anyone here and they will leave full and completely satisfied. The flavors and presentation are second to none. The staff is very friendly and the service is excellent.
