Plant was the destination restaurant for my birthday and it was definitely a phenomenal choice. The food was delicately prepared, full of flavor, the atmosphere was pleasant with knowledgable and friendly staff. The prices and portions were fair and the creativity and care put in the dishes was truly delectable. Thanks Plant!!! Once again showing us truly plant-based nutrition can healthy, tasty, delicious, and worth any effort.

It is absolutely beyond me how anyone could give Plant anything less than 5 stars. I was in line the day they opened and haven't stopped eating here ever since. Each experience at Plant becomes one of those meals where every bite prompts a wide-eyed, awestruck "mmmmmmm!!!" The food is creative, lively, gorgeous and delicious... although sometimes slow to come out, but that is quickly forgotten at the first bite. I've been vegan for years and Plant is up to par with some of the best veg food I've ever had... from New York to Portland to LA and all over! Although the hike in their prices and the loss of lunch service has kept me from dining here as much as I'd like, a 20-something's budget makes this place an occasional treat well worth every penny. Try the seitan and waffles at Sunday brunch. Better than any chicken and waffles that have ever existed.

We had dinner at Plant on the recommendation of our hotel staff. It was amazing and lived up to all the high praise. Our waitress was friendly and really great with our 3 kids. The food was outstanding - we are a vegetarian family and sometimes struggle to get food that is unusual...not at Plant, here the menu was so interesting - seitan bacon, portabella steak yum! yum!
Definitely give it a try if you are in Asheville.

Plant, the restaurant with roots, is an inconspicuous roadside eatery on Merrimon Ave., on the north side of Asheville. They aspire to join the host of eateries in Asheville characterized by an emphasis on vegetable based, "all natural", "healthy" and "organic" menu items.
The fried "jerk" seitan with whipped cauliflower was tastey and served with a mish mash of other vegetables that had little individual character.
The medley of sauteed mushrooms was similarly heaped very artistically with dissimilar vegetables that were not particularly compatible. Both entrees were overpriced.
The server was very pleasant and demonstrated a knowledge of the menu items. The service was a bit slow for a light client load.
For a restaurant that seems to be seeking a spot among the growing number of supper destinations in Ashe ville emphasizing the marriage of healthy foods and artistic presentations, Plant comes out in the middle of the crowd. There are better choices in this community of above average restaurants. Gary W.

This is a great restaurant for anyone with an openmind. The staff is friendly and willing to answer questions. We started with cups of the soup du jor, which was a spicy lentil soup. Our entrees were the hazelnut crusted Seitan and the smoked Portabella steak and we finished our meals sharing a Cannolo for dessert. The lentil soup was incredible, with a subtle, almost smoky kick. The Seitan and Portabella were cooked to perfection. I asked our server what made their food so much better than what we make at home, and he suggested it was "love and magic". Both elements are evident! Save room for dessert, or at least a scoop of ice cream. Wish we could've tried everything!
