V-Note offers an exceptional vegan menu in a one room storefront on the upper west side. The ambiance is presentable with a faux wood plank ceiling and several banquettes with throw pillows that were surprisingly comfortable. I honestly would have preferred a proper table with...More

To be honest I'm a meat person, but my friend suggested "her" neighbourhood vegan restaurant and she has always suggested good restaurants. And this one was no different. The interior is very modern and light. The menu is quite varied and the vine list (by...More

Delicious, thoughtful menu with so many choices that it took me 15 minutes to make up my mind. We started with the Roasted Pumpkin & Sweet Potato Gnocchi (golden beets!). I had the Beet Ravioli (more beets!), and the horseradish sauce stole the show -...More

My colleague and I met up some of her friends at V-Note. I knew it had a vegan menu but did not know that they were completely vegan. So being a meat eater, I was bit apprehensive but I must say I was impressed. A...More

The weekend brunch here is fabulous. The vegan eggs benedict is to die for. It is so creative and a culinary wonder. The atmosphere here is lovely.

I had a raw vegetable dish with a cashew cream sauce and it was wonderful! I also had a mushroom appetizer that was very good. I'm judging off one dish, but I think everyone else in our party were pleased with their food as well....More

Even if you are not normally meatless, you can probably appreciate a meal that doesn't leave you feeling overly full and tired. This cuisine will fill you up and sustain you and energize you as good food ought. The staff were lovely and friendly, very...More

From the creator of Blossom and Café Blossom, comes V-Note, an organic wine bar and vegan bistro set in an elegant, relaxed and inviting space on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. V-Note carries a vast selection of wine and beers, all of which are vegan, organic and/or bio-dynamic and in some cases even kosher, to accompany our completely vegan menu dedicated to fresh gourmet cuisine that is animal-caring. V-Note offers a rare opportunity for vegans and non-vegans alike to enjoy a great, satisfying meal paired with a carefully selected wine and/or beer. A kitchen that is open later fills a much needed niche for vegan restaurants in New York.
