A friend and I were drinking cocktails at a bar nearby and wanted a small bite to eat and chanced upon this resturant. I was drawn in by the delicious smell not knowing it was a vegan/organic resturant. I've never been to a vegan resturant before and thats definatly going to change going forward. The food was DELICIOUS, the wine was WONDERFUL and the staff were amazingly friendly. We sat at the table outside and watched the world go by and were so happy and relaxed. We were the last to leave and didn't feel pressured at all to leave by the staff. The waiter even wrote down the recpie for the nachos dish for me.

Loved it and am going to make a point of seeking out vegan resturants from now onwards...

We were celebrating our Vegan daughter's 22nd birthday with a group of friends and family. We wanted a menu that wouldn't limit her but would still have enough variety to please the non-Vegans in the crowd. This was a definite hit.
We all had tasty meals, beer and desert and left feeling that we had eaten well and had avery good time. The service was the right amount of attentiveness and the atmosphere was just right for this occassion.

We've now been here twice - once two years ago, once in June. We are vegetarians, usually vegan, and we have very high standards as we grow most of our own food and are used to fresh and wonderful. We can recommend this place and will eat here again. Prices are reasonable for NYC and you get a sizeable portion which is good for us since we are used to loading our plates (low fat, low sugar vegan diet and you get used to eating a lot of food without gaining any weight). We also ate at Blossom on the east side during this trip and I think we all gave the highest rank to Blossom - the food at Caravan probably isn't quite up the the Blossom standard but the prices for what we ate were better and the portions quite a bit larger. We like this place and will come back. Service was EXCELLENT. A fine place to eat.

A gem in the heart of the East Village. The food is very satisfying and healthy. The outdoor seating are few but give some privacy.

45$ for two bowls of "Vegan paella" . I am really sorry, but I could have done better myself, and without having to sell Jonny's kidney for it. Furthermore, it was advertised as containing a sausage, but the so-called sausage turned out to be 3 miserable and tiny pieces of one, playing hide and seek with the artichoke.

It's a shame the caravan didn't carry us away in the right dream because the place was, however, very nicely decorated.

And the WORST of it is that when you write a bad review on their facebook page, they delete your comment and simply block you to prevent you from writing anything more. This is a really appalling way of dealing with unhappy consumer. Never ever go there.
