Second time dining at this establishment when traveling to Philadelphia. Hand down the BEST vegan restaurant in the US! I'm not a vegan, but the food and presentation is outstanding and the staff is very knowledgeable and attentive. Reservations are a must as the restaurant remains very busy well into the late night hours!

Even though I was well aware of the accolades this restaurant has gotten, I was surprised at just how delicious the food was. Every dish was complex in taste and texture and we really enjoyed everything we ate. I especially enjoyed the mushroom dish and the lavender ice cream. Not inexpensive but worth it. The wine list is extensive but... More

Vedge is a superb restaurant, no ifs, ands or buts...it doesn't matter whether you are vegan, vegetarian, or simply looking for a meatless monday meal - you will be truly amazed and your palate pleased by a meal at Vedge. At times, you'll wonder how the taste that's pleasing your tastebuds is from a vegetable. The setting is lovely, in... More

Vedge restaurant is a gem. My husband and I dined there on a getaway to Philadelphia and it was by far our best food experience in the city. The staff was attentive, the ambiance was romantic, and the food was beyond amazing. We ordered appetizers, salads, mains, and dessert and each dish was presented with care and a detailed description... More

First let me say that even carnivores will leave happy after their experience from Vedge. I have been to this restaurant twice, now, both for very special events (because of the cost -- plan on spending $60-70 per person if you're a moderate drinker). The decor and the ambiance inside is really warm and very upscale. There aren't any bad... More

Absolutely amazing place. Tried 6 plates and no clear winner of which was the most delicious. Topped it off with the zucchini and brownie deserts. You will not regret your visit here. Service is also top notch.

This place is a jewel. From the incredibly well crafted drinks to dessert, you quickly forget that you are eating vegan. Each dish is creative in inception and well-crafted in execution. Even if you are not a vegan (I am not), it is an exceptional meal.

One of the best experiences while attending the Democratic National Convention in Philly was a celebratory dinner at Vedge, which came highly recommended. The decor was exquisite. The wait staff warm and full of information. Small portions of delicious, imaginative dishes encouraged trying many of Vedge's diverse options. One of our favorites was the complementary shots of tomato/watermelon gazpacho. The... More

Vedge has a great reputation, but I was hesitant about going there because vegetarian food at these fancy restaurants is typically uncooked and bland. Vedge was the exact opposite. The dishes were cooked to perfection and were stunningly flavorful. I always wonder how chefs know what flavors are going to go so well together. I believe that truly anything on... More

The two words that I would use to describe the atmosphere is "hip" and "intimate." It is a beautiful space. The service is exceptionally friendly, personable and attentive. Our server was extremely helpful explaining the large plates (similar to tapas but, slightly larger portions for sharing) that are typically served in 3 courses. I personally, am not exclusively vegetarian nor... More
