Traveling with a daughter who is vegan is not always easy. Though she herself is very good about finding things to eat at any restaurants we chose, it often is not the case for the rest of the family when we accompany her to a vegetarian location. However, Plum is quite a different thing altogether. The range of selections was... More

Sleepwalking staff that just wont bother. Went here for lunch but left as I was ignored by the staff. Considering the restaurant being almost empty, they should focus more on their few guests.

I persoanlly am not a Vegan, but I have nothing against delicious food. I went to the location that is on the Seattle Center Grounds in the Armory building (formerly known as the Center House). The service was quick and efficient and the sandwiches I ordered both were extremely delicious and filling. The side salads where rather under whelming, but... More

I don't eat a lot of meat. It's not something I really crave. But I certainly eat my share of it. As Michael Pollan suggests, I try to eat "less meat." If you are considering this approach, but find it hard to imagine a hearty meal without a hunk of flesh, Plum Bistro will open up new horizons for you.... More

For vegan food, the dinner menu here is quite tasty, especially the veggie monster Pizza and the broccolini. However, when I returned the next day for the lunch, the menu had changed drastically and the food wasn't as good as the day before. But still, I would go back.

There are too few vegetarian and vegan restaurants of this quality - what an inspiration! Yes it was a bit hot, crowded and noisy - open to the street on a hot summer evening, rough concrete walls- but the food was sublime. We are all meat eaters but really enjoyed this and would return without hesitation.

3 stars is generous. We came here two years ago, and it was so amazing I never stopped thinking about it. So, naturally, when we found ourselves in Seattle again we had to visit. My husband liked his Jamaican wrap. I got the Reuben, and I found it incredibly greasy and low on flavor. The side salad was good. Nothing... More

I read the positive reviews and agree with them. Nice restaurant. The food was excellent. My friend and I shared a salad, the pan seared lasagna abd a pizza. Everything was delicious. Definitely a restaurant that non vegans could enjoy.

Yes, it's pricey, but that's the point. Its upscale vegan dining, and damn is it good! The restaurant sits on a lovely little space off 12th Ave. My wife have been vegetarian and vegan (when possible) for quite some time, so our trip to Seattle was a welcome addition to our journal. Plum Bistro is a special restaurant, and this... More

I think a bit more pricey than vegan needs to be. I don't get why it's so pricey...it's not meat you guys. It's not amazing! But it's an option and it's good. Small space fyi. Small portions.

Thank Mandicat2014
