    Although our server was very pleasant, she was definitely not prepared to discuss the wine specials. There was a mistake on the final bill (which we corrected). Sublime charged us 28 cents for a bottle of wine. Oh how I wish...... :-)

    I'm not a vegan, but I like vegan food. I'm used to going to "hippie" places to eat vegan and I was very surprised to find this gem. You will feel like you are in a steakhouse, but no meat and you can even bring your non-vegan friends and they will have great food. The service was simply outstanding. Our waiter even gave us one of the sides complementary because he recommended us to try their delicious salad, prepared with veggies from their own rooftop garden. If you are in Ft. Lauderdale, don't hesitate to try this place.

    The restaurant looked very up scale. However, it was below average as a vegan restaurant. Disappointed. Wine was below par. Food was too salty. Bean burger was poor. Appetizers were reasonable. Owner's constant presence was unnecessarily off putting to the experience.

    The food, ambiance, and service was spectacular. I had their famous vegetarian Lazonia which lived up to its name. Our waitress was quite polite, and professional. I was also impress with the fast service. I would definitely go back there and also recommend this restaurant to family and friends. P.S. even my friend who is not a vegetarian loved their black bean burger.

    Believe it or not, my wife and I flew from Sacramento, California to Fort Lauderdale for the sole purpose of dining at Sublime for her birthday. The day following, we flew back. We travel the country and have found many great vegan/vegetarian restaurants, but Sublime is the best. We are already planning our next trip. This restaurant is amazing. Comfortable surroundings, excellent service, and the food is heavenly.

    Hits and misses here. Based on their reputation, I was expecting a lot...and what we got was good, but not spectacular. The decor was outstanding, and while the food was very fresh, much of it was bland and uninspiring. The Frito Misto appetizer was excellent, as was the Coconut Cake. Chopped and Caesar Salads were tiny and very ordinary, the Spinach and Chickpea Soup was awful (tasted like water). Lasagna was fresh but very bland, the Piccata was rubbery but did have an outstanding sauce. Our Server wasn't rude but was indifferent and not engaging at all. Overall, we were left w/ the impression of a place we'll try again in a year or so, but we're not running back. Rated "Fair" because of the price, otherwise I'd say "Good."

    We've been coming here for a very long time and have unfortunately noticed a steady decline in both food quality and service. Our food came cold-ish making it "stiff" and the waitress was pretty poor. I normally tip >18% everywhere, but decided to give her 15%. I noticed her shake her head in disbelief as she walked away from the table checking out her tip. Won't be going back for a l-o-n-g while. It's a shame b/c they were truly one of the best (if not the best) vegetarian friendly restaurant in South Florida... and totally vegan to boot.

    I brought my best friend here for his birthday, as he usually can only order a veggie burger or pizza when we eat out. As two people, we ate for four. Everything was delicious! We even ordered the apple pie on a whim (we don't like apple pie), and it was so yummy. The service was great. Really attentive and really nice. We will definitely be returning.

    We weren't quite sure what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised. Great food and even better cocktails! Would definitely visit again. My only complaint (and it's not even a complaint,more of a personal preference) is that they had no almond milk, only soy. But no worries because the tiramisu martini totally made up for it!

Appetizers were terrific, entrees were very filling and the service was 5 star and then some. We got the absolutely amazing coconut cake and a coffee cocktail to top off an awesome experience. Both of us left stuffed and plan to go back before our departure!!

    I personally eat a lot of meat, but I decided to go here with my date, whose is vegetarian. We had the Macaroni & Cheese as an appetizer and I had the vegetable lasagne. I would tell you what my date had, but my I was too busy eating my lasagne because it was so good. Don't think you'll miss eating meat with this kind of menu; at least not for one night anyway.

    I love steaks, poultry and seafood. But recently, I had 2 business associates visit from Taiwan, who requested vegetarian food for our outing to dinner. What to do? So after a Google search, I found Sublime which had excellent reviews. I thought that these customers must love a piece of tofu with a celery stick stuck in it, but was I wrong. We started off with beer that was vegan and tasted fine. We then had their famous pretzel sticks which came with humus, mustard, and chopped onion spread; delicious. I then had the stuffed mushroom ravioli which wasn't a huge portion, but was it tasty. Very flavorful. We each got different deserts. I opted for the Coconut Cake and it was again, delicious. I am planning on taking my family there!

    My meat eating boyfriend & vegetarian self went to this restaurant for our anniversary & we loved it. We plan on returning every year. He had Mac& Cheese (he loved it) & sublime picatta (not so much.. But it was really good!!!) while I devoured a Caesar salad (didn't bring a lot of dressing so all for extra on the side of you'd like but it was perfect for my taste buds. The croutons were not very crunchy, eh. The tasty lemony dressing really makes up for that. The lettuce is nice and green too, very fresh. The mushroom ravioli was incredible. The pasta is a bit chewy and the filling is creamy. I honestly can't describe the flavor, but I can say it exceeded my high expectations. We shared a delicious chocolate nirvana, his favorite part.

    Took my mom here a couple of years ago for a nice alternative dinner (she is not vegan), and she loved it! Now we go every time she visits my area. The food is always good quality and well prepared. Drinks are good, and coconut cake is awesome! The service is always good. Nancy, the owner, makes it a point to visit every table to make sure everyone is having a great experience. I live close to Sublime, and have never had a bad experience! I love that proceeds go to animal rights. I highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a great dining experience. I feel very fortunate to live so close to such a amazing restaurant.
