Diner Reviews
  • "Everything was outstanding. Will definitely return! "
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "I'm not even a vegetarian but my girlfriend is the only thing I was not happy with was the server. Forgetting stuff, drinks with stuff floating in it, asking for coffee to come out with the desert and having to wait 20 minutes after the it got there before I got the coffee, also they hand out a free pesto at the beginning of the meal as an appetizer we never received any and my gf who had been there before saw them going to other tables so she asked if they still served them she said "I think they used most of it for the wedding party I might be able to find some do you still want it"...she literally just told me to my face that our meal was not as important as another guest. I am a server myself, mistakes happen it's all in how you fix it."

  • "This was my wife's and my first time eating here. Being vegan, we heard many wonderful things about Sublime. We decided to bring my parents who are the opposite of vegan. Everyone absolutely loved the food and the service. I think that Sublime is doing a fantastic job of breaking the stereotypes of vegan cuisine. My parents could not believe that they were eating vegan food. Sublime is not a phenomenal "Vegan" restaurant, it is a phenomenal restaurant that happens to be vegan."

  • "Had a wonderful experience there late last year. Decided to arrange a group of 10 birthday Saturday night dinner at Sublime. A wedding reception was being held in a large private room in front. The regular part of the restaurant was 3/4 full. Service was slow,our server was meek, uninspiring and devoid of any personality. She did not enquire whether it was a "first time" or if anyone had any questions about the menu. The appetizers were excellent after a 45 minute wait, but the entrees arrived before the appetizer plates were cleared, and were disappointing in general. The lasagna seemed burnt, French fries soggy, portabello mushroom stack a joke, but good ravioli and sea taco. The whole experience was very disappointing."

  • "One of the best vegan restaurants in the country! It is a restaurant for everyone. Great restaurant to take carnivores who turn up their noses to vegans."

  • "We wanted a special occasion restaurant for our honeymoon, and as vegans, this place was perfect! We've been to vegan restaurants all around the world, and this stands out as one of the best. The food is delicious, and a reasonable value for what you pay. We had cocktails, appetizers, two entrees, and desserts, and the total was right around $100 before gratuity, which we found to be perfectly acceptable. The food and service lived up to the hype. As we walked away, we were already talking about making a special return trip to Ft. Lauderdale just to go back to this place! Absolutely stellar experience. Beautiful food. Kind and helpful service with appropriately timed visits to the table."

  • "We wanted to try the artichoke appetizer and they did not have. Waiter said chef turned them back due to lack of size. Had the eggplant flatbread instead. Portion was appropriated, however this dish lacked flavor. Literally vegetables cut up and placed on flatbread. Could have used olive oil, a seasoned olive oil, balsamic glaze, fresh herbs.....anything! We had the mushroom ravioli--had to say the flavor was good, however, portion was small for an entree. Also, had the portobello stack. Just okay...have had better. The quinoa side was the blandest, driest quinoa we have ever had. Again, fresh herbs, oil, lemon....anything to season it up. Overall, very very disappointed!"

  • "Everything was great. The food was very tasty. My friends and I had app, entrees and dessert. I don't like cauliflower but the Frito Misto is awesome and the Mac and cheese. I had the mushroom ravolio and it was great. For dessert we shared the chocolate cake, coconut cake and the apple pie al mode. Word can not describe the desserts. I'm not a big fan of cocomut cake but it was great. I love this place and I will be there again. Im going to take my boyfriend and open his eyes to something new."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "If you are looking for a place for Vegans this place is a gem. The food was unbelievable can't wait for my husband to get here so that I can take him. The Frito Misto is a must have. The Vegetable Lasagne is filling, and the Mushroom Ravioli was light. This was a great find."

  • "It's a varied menu , excellent wine & cocktail list & fabulous desserts! Our waiter was quick with suggestions & so very pleasant ."

  • "The food was amazing. We had to remind ourselves that the food was vegan which just made eating it even better.no harmful toxins or mistreatment of animals in our bodies! True gem of a restaurant. Very impressed."

  • "An annual visit to Sublime with my daughter was disapponting. Service was great up to the point of getting our dinners. Then the waiter disappeared. My mushroom burger dinner was delicious, but my daughter's vegetable lasagne was not up to par. The waiter never came over to see how things were. At check time, we told him, but he didn't apologize and still charged us for the dinner. More than half was left on the plate. Next time we'll try someplace else."

    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "I was very disappointed in the food and the service. My server had no idea about the menu and every time a question was asked the server had to go and ask someone else. For the food the special salad was not good in terms of taste and texture. For a place that represents it self as a " innovative concept in vegan dining that's completely cholesterol-free" I can could tell that short cuts were made. For instance my vegetable lasagna the pasta I could tell was not a whole grain. When ordering dessert Hershey syrup was used."

  • "Such o nice feeling to combine eating out with eating healthy! Well worth paying a little extra for peace of mind that you aren't compromising your personal standards for eating healthy sustainable food when dining out"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "We have dined at Sublime many times in the past, and can't imagine a trip to Ft. Lauderdale without dining there. Food there is a bit different, but always very good, both in presentation and quality. Service is always excellent and staff is very informative and helpful in making decisions. Even non-vegans like myself will enjoy the food here, so don't be put off by the vegetarian/vegan label, the food is always very good."

  • "Had friends from out-of-town with a 2 yr old and 4 yr old. It went GREAT!! Was a little nervous about not have "regular" milk for the 2 y/o but soy milk hit the spot. Noise level was appropriate for everyone to hear the children's low voices. If anything, the laughter from our table might have been too much for others in the restaurant. Four adults and two children sitting at a booth was perfect. Recommend this place to anyone open to great food in a different version than they are familiar with."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "Don't cheat yourself for an absolute sublime experience by visiting Sublime - you won't be dissapointed when tasting their hearty, tasteful, animalfriendly and delicious dishes!!!!! We'll especially recommend: * Fireroasted artichoke * Mac 'n'cheese * Mushroom ravioli * Portobello stack * Mushroom risotto cake * Chocolate Nirvana * Coconut cake YUMMY! ...and remember: 100% of the profits goes animal welfare and promoting veganism...what's not to like ;o)"

  • "The entire dining experience from the quality of the food to the caring individual that was our waitress was superb! We had special dietary need and those were met graciously and deliciously! We had two youngsters and they enjoy not only their food but yhe whole experience."

  • "Found Sublime online for my pescatarian husband's birthday. The frito misto is divine if you can digest fried cauliflower adequately! The mushroom ravioli was superb. My risotto mushroom cakes were hearty, dense and I had enough leftovers to take home for both of us for lunch the next day. The asian slaw was so bitter I was unable to eat it. The waiter was gracious and deleted it off our bill. The chocolate cake was delightful. The coconut cake was dense and dry. The icing was great. It was served over a delicious cookie."

  • "We decided last minute to stop by Sublime and grab a bite, glad we did. Everything was prefect and they were very accommodating. There was a buzz in the Restaurant about a celebrity sighting."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "The food at Sublime has always been excellent. It is definately the place to take those who don't believe that vegan food can taste good!"
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Actually, it was only fair. Vegan restaurants have come a long way in the past decade, but it looks like Sublime stayed with the same food. we ate many dishes, that were all too greasy, yet edible. The seasoning was done without any sophistication. The worst dish was the chocolate cake, which had a butter cream that tasted like margarine, the cake had a sharp smell of baking soda and we had to return it back to the kitchen."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "My family and I are not vegans but we love trying out different cuisines. Sublime will please vegan and non vegan palates alike. The cauliflower Fritto Misto is definitely a must try. The sliders made of Gardein and the pretzel appetizer were delicious. We had the Asian curry dish, the veggie lasagna and the mushroom ravioli. They were all very tasty. One of us ordered the veggie burger. We found the sliders to be better. For dessert, we had the chocolate nirvana, the coconut cake, the cheesecake and the apple pie. You can skip the cheesecake but make sure you get at least the coconut cake and the chocolate nirvana. Bill was about 200 bucks for a party of 4 which included multiple apps, entrees, dessert and coffee. It was worth it!"

  • "Sublime offers the rare dining experience where food, service and ambience all combine to provide an unusually satisfying experience. There is great attention to detail here including the restful waterfall room, the delightful Frito Misto and the attentive wait staff. Don't miss this restaurant if you are staying in South Florida."

  • "I really love this place. I recently moved here from NY (which is FULL of great vegan spot). It was disappointing how few GOOD vegan spots Florida has. I was referred to this place by several friends and I am so thankful! This place has some of the best vegan food I have ever had, I DEF. recommend their Frito Misto appetizer and the Chocolate Nirvana... YOU'RE WELCOME!!!"

  • "We left with a $90 tab for a meal where I can honestly say we didn't like anything. We We couldn't get out of there fast enough. Everything was strangely spiced, weird textures, I don't Even know what went into their "cheese"."

  • "Vegan paradise, food surprisingly delicious. My favorite is the vegetable lasagna. Everything was Sublime!"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "I am not Vegetarian nor am I Vegan but this restaurant was great. We had sliders that looked and tasted like cheese burger sliders. They were really good. I had the vegetarian Lasagna and it was really good. My daughter had the tempura tofu tacos, jasmine rice and black beans and that was really really good oh, and asian slaw. I also had a Tajito a tangerine mojito really good too. Surprisingly the owner of the restaurant came by our table and everyone else's table and spoke with us which was really nice. The restaurant looks classy and you can be casual or nicely dressed. Fort Lauderdale needs more vegetarian and vegan restaurants like this one. I would definitely recommend this restaurant."

  • "We LOVE Sublime! Amazing food that has no animal products whatsoever in any dish, and no cholesterol. The staff is top notch and will help guide you through if you've never dined vegan. The interior is beautiful and serene with a wall of water. I've taken skeptics and were all pleasantly surprised."

  • "I've dined at Sublime several times and it such as relief as a vegan to order anything I desire. On this occasion we were seated quickly, but it was over 5 minutes before our server came over yo our table. I couldn't decide on a dish and when I didn't know what I want he just kind of walked off. Several times during the meal we had to ask other servers for cocktails and to get our server as he was very inattentive. We ordered the pretzels as we do everytime and they are phenomenal. For entrées my meat eating boyfriend loved the sublime picatta and really enjoyed it. I ordered the reef tacos and thought they lacked any real flavor and was a bit disappointed. We will still come back, hopeful of a better experience."

  • "The food is mediocre at best, while the service was poor (not enough personnel, no busboys, waiters are forced to do everything, which compromises service quality). Overall a poor experience."
