    Sublime is an enjoyable experience for us since we don't eat meat. The choices are fun. The cauliflower misto was great, a delicious sauce. We had the tofu tacos, which were dry, and just okay. We had to ask for more sauce. The arugula beet salad was very plain, still good, also somewhat stingy portion. Also had the key lime cheesecake which was standard. I enjoyed the wine which was Fault LIne.

    We looked forward to trying Sublime ever since we first heard there is a vegan restaurant in Ft Lauderdale, where we would soon be traveling. The food was delicious, the service was wonderful, and the atmosphere was delightful. . Proceeds go to animal welfare. I highly recommend this restaurant.

    Celebration
    Dined on 11/1/2014
    We went there with higher expectations than were met. The portions were small and lacked flavor. With the possibilities out there to dress up the taste of vegetables they really missed the opportunity, I k ow this because I have an herb garden and know what socie and herbs can to to drastically improve flavor. In addition the price was extremely expensive for "veggies"! FYI a to the manager, it was embarrassing to have the owner come to the table and tell us how happy she was to see us back, that it was a long time since she had seem us. We have never been to that resturant before. Then she proceeded to go to other tables with the same speeck! How do you spell AWKWARD?

    manager and server provided very detailed information with regard to gluten free foods. Try the frito misto - cauliflower with sweet chili sauce. Everybody at the table enjoyed it and lots of this plate was being served through out the restaurant. Mushroom risotto cakes were very dry. They should just make mushroom risoto. Enjoyed the sublime picatta. Feedback from others at table stated that the portobello stack and reef tacos were lacking in flavor. Overall, an enjoyable experience. p.s. - try the cucumber martini

The décor was nice and cozy, the food was excellent (everything from the appetizers to the desserts were outstanding) and the service was great. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and look forward to going again when I am in the area.

    I have to say that we were really looking forward to dining at sublime. We'd heard great things. The food was well presented in the main and greativevwith ingredients but for me the overall taste was lacking. The items listed on the menu sounded fab but the finished product weren't all that! The service was efficient and to the point however overall please see my private note.

    The key to ordering is to ask your server questions, which I did. I was very happy with my spinach salad and lasagna dinner. Both were excellent tasting and large portions. I left very happy. Those in our party who ordered the arugula and beet salad felt cheated with the beets. The mushroom ravioli was a small serving. Our friends ordered Apple pie for dessert and raved about it. We shared a nice Chardonnay. Dinner for four was about $200.

    This is the only place a vegan can go for a special day in South Floria. The carnivores at our table were happy with their "different" meal while we the vegans were just delighted. Our waitress was charming and took wonderful care of my Dad (turned 85) who's biggest problem was that he did not believe the food was vegan - it tasted too good! All in all a great evening. The perfect place to celebrate a special occasion... or to get ideas as to how to spice up your vegan lifestyle :-)

    I ate here with a friend of mine, who is vegan, and I was skeptical at first (I'm not a vegan) but was thoroughly impressed! The food was amazing! I'm typically a big fan of steak, potatoes, etc. but I would take anyone here and have them try it out and NOT be just as satisfied as eating at a steakhouse. My friend, again who is vegan, was very impressed by our waiter and his knowledge. Our waiter (sorry can't remember his name) was knowledgeable about the menu, the ingredients and even the wine to go with our dinner. They grow their own food. They have a GREAT wine list. The restaurant is beautiful! SO glad I took a chance on vegan food, it was delicious!

    The reviews looked great here, Yelp and Google... We must have hit an off night for the chef because we could make more flavorful vegan good at home. We've definitely had better elsewhere for less money. Pretzel app was the best part of meal, eggplant salad - fail, portobello stack - fail, artichoke - ok. I would definitely NOT recommend this restaurant unless you want bland/tasteless/unfulfilling food. Even the Apple pie/cobbler was pretty horrible. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME/MONEY.

    We had a great time at Sublime. The food and drinks were pretty good. The chef sent out a very dry basil polenta. Unfortunately, that missed the mark. It needed a sauce or something. The appetizers and soup of the day were great. I ordered the sliders and it was very tasty. Entrees were hot, fresh, and very tasty. The coconut cake and chocolate cakes were very good. The key lime cheesecake was not that great, but not everyone can be Cheesecake Factory. I wish they stayed open later on Saturday and Friday nights. Overall a great high end vegetarian experience.

    I have been a regular visitor to Florida since my parents moved there from New Jersey about 15 years ago. Since I am vegetarian for the past 40 years and have been hearing about Sublime being rated one of the best vegan restaurants on the planet, my first experience eating there the other night definitely did meet the expectations that had built up over the past 10 years or so. When some friends from my home town in California were spending a couple days near Fort Lauderdale while I was also visiting the area, the opportunity to experience the food and ambiance with friends presented itself. We were all very happy with our first time dining at Sublime and it made our meeting up here much more memorable. I look forward to the next time.

    Married to a vegetarian, we seek out vegan/vegetarian restaurants. Sublime disappointed us in many ways, from a limited menu which had one half page devoted to food and three to wines, to an appetizer larger than our mains which was dredged in a sugary coating. The food was bland, the waiter was knowledgeable by rote and the experience disappointing. This was our 2nd visit and will be our last.
