“Overall very good experience”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Being a small place, it fills up really quickly, so need to get the reservations in early. The menu is good with very interesting dishes using unique ingredients.
I tried the philly rolls as a starter, which was really good.
Being a non-drinker, we went for the teas, which were excellent.
The entrees all were of a pretty decent portion size, which was a pleasant suprise, since our past experience at such gourmet vegan places has been that the portion sizes were almost bite sized!

It is a bit pricey, but food and service is excellent, so good for special occasions

“Excellent Food!”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

By far my best meal in NYC! Even if you do not enjoy vegan raw food, you should give it a try... everything in the menu is fantastic. I recommend the "cheese" plate for appetizer. All cheeses are made with cashews and they are delicious. Do leave space for desert.. they are the best!

“Purely Delicious (for Vegans only)”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Vegans will love, carnivores probably not. Fantastic atmosphere, service and innovative dishes. My non-Vegan husband left... hungry! Try Candle 79 uptown if you are dining with a non-Vegan.

“Excellent natural food resturant!”
Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

If you want a great raw food resturant Pure is it. Fist time I ever ate at one and I was inpressed. Great presentation, nice ambiance, friendly and attentive service. It's kind of pricey, but very unique and expertly done. I highly recommend it!

“Pure Food on Madison/97th”
Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

Not sure if this is a satilite of the origanal. Same name but with out the wine. All veggies too. Soups and salads are awesome. Smoothies and shakes as well. My family came from the west coast and needed foods that were similar to our normal diets. This was a great find while staying in the area for several weeks. Food was fresh and priced right. A lot to choose from.
