This is a perfect place for anyone who is curious to find out about the vegan cuisine but was always afraid to try it. Unlike a few other vegetarian/vegan paces that I have been to before, this one has an extensive menu of truly remarkable and tasty dishes. It also offers a selection of very interesting and unusual drinks with great smell and taste that go great with the dessert. I never thought that it is possible to make a cake from chickpeas and that it would taste so good. I highly recommend this place for great food and excellent service.

very good- you can take a non vegan and they will be happy and full- second time there and both times the meal was very good, service was great, menu very creative - they make these Kale and sesame chips that are super yummy!

The grapefruit alcoholic drink from the bartender was THE BEST drink I've ever had. Please please please get it if you go here. I also had the seitan dish, chimichurri and the ravioli - all were excellent. I'm not a vegan eater, and usually don't love vegan dishes, but I couldn't believe how tasty, fresh and wholesome each plate was. I can't wait to come back here, this place is excellent.

I came here after getting married with my grandparents for lunch. The food here is amazing. Delicious and there is plenty to select. Fried Seitan on the sticks was brilliant! I must admit I found the place pretty cramped and dark. The service could have been better; they made many mistakes, such as bringing us tap water after ordering 2 mineral bottles and they weren't too patient with my grandfather who is no vegan and needed more help with the menu. I don't recommend coming here if you have a special occasion with a group.

My group tried four different entrees and two desserts. The prices were higher than I was comfortable with, but I figured if it was vegan it would be worth it. We tried a burrito, a black bean burger, a portobello sandwich, and a stuffed avocado. I tasted all of them and they were all quite bland, like there wasn't any seasoning. My burger patty squished into pieces the first time I picked it up, and the bun looked like something I could buy at a supermarket. The desserts were pricey as well and tasted more flavorful than the entrees, but still lacked a little something. The service was nice, but it took awhile for the waitress to visit our table. Overall, I'd rather cook at home and save my money, as it seems as though none of these dishes we tried were worth eating again, especially for the high price tag.
