Really tasty, hearty veggie food. We stayed for hours and they didn't try to hurry us along. Relaxed atmosphere, great choice and friendly service.

Looked for a vegan or vegan option restaurant in Greenwich Village. Small place but very nicely set up. I had veggie dumplings with other stir fried veggies and a dipping sauce. Outstanding. The owners/servers were very welcoming and friendly. Service was prompt and efficient. The prices were very reasonable. The meal was so filling I didn't have room for dessert... More

Came across this restaurant by chance. It was a very lucky find. Imaginative, tasty vegetarian food of this quality is hard to find. There is a wide range of veggie burgers with lots of different ingredients and flavours. We're both long-term vegetarians and were very impressed by the quality of the food here. Friendly, efficient staff, too. Highly recommended.

It is nice that you have vegan place in here. There are not that many in New York as you might think.

Restaurant/Location: Beautiful intimate restaurant. It is small so if you go at a time you think may be very busy I would call ahead. It's just located a short couple of blocks from Washington Square Park. Food: UNREAL. They offer many different cuisines so if you're looking for a lot of variety this place is perfect! We ordered WAY too... More

While visiting New York, a friend recommended Quantum Leap. We are all very healthy eaters. What a delightful restaurant. The waitress was sweet and so accommodating. The food was out of this world. I had grilled flounder with brown rice and veggies, my husband had seafood skewers and my friend had a Shrimp Curry Stew special that he raved about.... More

Nestled in Greenwich Village just a stones throw from some great jazz clubs is Quantum Leap. Excellent food and service, all prepared fresh. If you're looking for light, tasty cuisine, then Quantum Leap is for you. Sunday Brunch is amazingly delicious, too!

The homey, unpretentious atmosphere and large menu promised a fine vegetarian experience, but what we got was a mixed bag. The good – and they are REALLY good… The vegetable split pea soup was a good as any I’ve ever had; fantastic taste and texture with carrot and potato chunks make it an even heartier experience. The carrot and beet... More

We were visiting NYU with my daughter and met a friend for lunch at this restaurant and I have to say we LOVED it. Such a large amount of choices, the food was excellent, everyone loved it and the price was very good. I highly recommend this restaurant. Their veggie burger is one of the best I have ever had....

Had dinner at Quantum Leap before seeing a comedy show at Greenwich Village comedy club and we were really impressed. The menu had a good range and was appealing even for people who aren't vegetarians. Ordered the soy nuggets and vietnamese summer rolls as well as the Morrocon burger with a Falafel patty and all were full of flavour and... More

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
