The Plant - Cafe Organic
Organic and DeliciousThree of us sat on the protected patio with a wonderful view of the Bay. The menu is small, but ranges wide--duck, salmon, vegetarian quinoa--and has many gluten-free and several vegan options. Everything is organic and delicious, beautifully plated. I've also been here for lunch and was equally pleased. I definitely recommend!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGood palce to try healthy foodGreat experience. Had our waiter Adam help or make most of our choices based upon our conversation with him.
Too Bad Open Table does not give credit for diners points.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMMy date and I had a greatMy date and I had a great seat, inside because of the breeze, but near a window overlooking the bay. Our server was very attentive and conversant in a sincere friendly way, no pretense, and helped my friend choose a wine that would go well with her meal, and was actually a better match than the maitre d' s suggestion.
We shared a beet salad which was well balanced. My friend had the halibut, while I had small plates instead of an entree: seared scallops and grilled asparagus, and a side of mixed green salad. She enjoyed her dish while I was delighted with mine; both meals were plenty to eat without being overwhelming at all.
We finished with a press pot of coffee, a nice alternative to pre made coffee. we'll go back!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat lunch on the waterThe food was really good and reasonably priced. We sat outside on a rare 75 degree day in June and really enjoyed the atmosphere. The service was a bit slow but overall the lunch was really good. We will definitely go back.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMIn-Sync with todayThe service was friendly, professional and quick! Better than that, the food was outstanding. Being a vegetarian, I ate vegan and loved the entire meal and experience. It was easy to navigate the menu, and there is a wide selection for veg-heads. Everything is clean and full of flavor. It was a sunny day in the city, so we ate outside along the wharf and water. You can't beat an experience like that!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Food and Veg Friendly!I went to the Plant a while back and was very happy with the food. I came back here with my husband, dad, and brother and was sad that they were out of the entree I wanted (English Peas Ravioli) and decided to get the Bianca Pizza. I am a lover of cheese and this was a good one. It has a good kick but unfortunately wasn't served hot, so the cheese had kind of solidified. My husband's California plant burger was warm and not very hot as well. But the food was still delicious. The staff is very friendly and I will definitely be back. The plant burger is reason enough to keep coming back.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMSo glad to find thisYay for an organic restaurant with tasty interesting food5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe PlantA nice selection of healthy foods. The waitress did a good job of explaining the option and ingredients. I had the pizza. Very tasty, however, it would have been better if the toppings had been spread all the way to the edges rather than just in the center.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good vegatarian menuAlthough The Plant is not strictly vegetarian, it's menu is tilted in that direction and the "healthy" entries we ordered were superb.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Plant has great food andThe Plant has great food and a great atmosphere! I love sitting on the patio!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMPlant Cafe Is an Embarcadero GemI love Plant for its varied men and an atmosphere that manages to be lively while keeping the noise level low enough for civilized conversation. A big plus is the chance to enjoy a stunning Bay view from the terrace in all weather, thanks to the sheltering see-through plastic curtains that magically appear when the wind comes up or the fog rolls in.
Be sure to try one of the excellent fruit shakes.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for food allergiesThey are very aware of allergies and make it easy to find something delicious to eat!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the menuFantastic selection for omnivores and vegetarians alike. The burgers are tasty. The vegan cheesecake was delicious! Convenient parking on pier 3 with a nice view of the Bay Bridge. Outdoor seating was cozy despite it being windy--thank goodness for those overhead heaters.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMsuccessful google searchMy Google Search for a restaurant near the ferry building brought me this restaurant, The Plant, to which I will be bringing other family members and friends.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my faves in the city.One of my faves in the city. Oysters are always fresh and delicious but they always forget to bring oyster fork. Get a bottle of Cava and enjoy. Beet salad is a must as is avocado and grapefruit salad. Fresh and organic ingredients. If you like burgers and want to stay from red meat this is the place. Halibut and Salmon are always fresh. The best raw cheesecake in the city. So good that we took one home with us on Saturday night and had it with Chocolate Port. Hopefully you can say hello to the Chef. He is a genius. Phillip is wonderful at the bar. and makes some amazing cocktails. Wait staff very attentive and on top of it. Go, sit outside and take your time. Enjoy the water and the beautiful view. Can't wait to return.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Burgers Ever!It is rare to find a restaurant where both my husband (a recovering vegan) and I would both be happy to eat pretty much everything on the menu. Our first visit will most definitely not be our last!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat, healthy foodLove the juice options and they are quickly amenable to any additions/subtractions to items.
Fresh, delicious.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMSan Francisco at its bestGreat service (thank you Jared), great food and great outdoors seating. Our waiter was knowledgeable about the food (and gave great recommendations), paired the wines and was fun. The food itself was very well prepared and delicious. I will definitely be back.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWow!Amazing food, great options, incredible views of the bay, what more could you ask for? I would definitely come here again. Vegetarian, gluten free, and vegan friendly for those who follow those diets, too. In terms of food, it's definitely the best restaurant I've been to on the Embarcadero.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent. ServiceFood was excellent. Service was good as far as filling water etc. but very very slow for getting food and checks. Took almost 2 hours for lunch which is way too much when you have to get back to work.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, great atmosphereExcellent food, great atmosphere and wonderful service4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat organic food!love that its organic! tried three dishes that were all delicious, depends on your taste. the plant burger was just average for me, (i did not enjoy the consistency) but everything else was superb.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMHealthy food in a nice spaceI was nicely surprised. Good healthy food can be served in a nice space with good service. Well-done. I will be back.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe yummy Plant CafeThis was my second visit to the Plant Cafe. Lots of vegan options. I had the strawberry kombucha and it was delicious. Also had the tofu scramble, very good. Our server was awesome--dont remember his name but he looked like a model and was super nice. Will return...4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a really great lunch andHad a really great lunch and received rave reviews from everyone in my party. Food was really good, atmosphere was fun with great views, service was excellent and our server gave us great recommendations. The blood orange margaritas were DELICIOUS! I will definitely be back!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff was very accommodatingThe staff was very accommodating to my changing party number and allowed us to serve our own birthday cake at the table. Everyone that ordered the "Plant Burger" loved it. Those who ordered the wasabi version said they couldn't taste the wasabi. A friend ordered the ravioli with peas and was disappointed because the amount of food was small. The atmosphere was fantastic, especially the view of the bay. I would dine here again.
Thanks4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my daughter for lunchI took my daughter for lunch out to celebrate her job promotion. The wait staff was perfect! Helpful if questioned. Always available but not subservient. The food was both delicious and adventurous. I would definitely go again.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat View, food just ok this timeI love the location of this place. I always sit in the outdoor area and take in the bay view! However, the salmon salad I had was just average and there were hardly any green on the plate. I started with a cup of soup which came to the table warm, not hot and was lackluster in flavor. Not the best experience I have had here so I will give it another try!3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFresh food friendly serviceThis was my second time to the Plant Cafe and it won't be my last. The food is so fresh and flavorful with lots of vegetarian options. The only thing I did not care for was the Plant Burger... It was tasty but they made it to look like real raw beef... a little too funky for liking. Other than that, try the flatbread pizza and a fresh kale salad.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Plant never fails to getThe Plant never fails to get the job done! Great food, awesome ambiance and a killer view.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Lunch PlaceI've been here a couple of times before and I can honestly say that each experience has been a good one. Food is great and there's enough variety on the menu for every person. Great customer service and the price is not bad considering.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a pleasure to dineAlways a pleasure to dine at Plant.

Loved the view and eating on the waterfront but I don't plan on returning3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGuiltless PleasureOne of the best meals we had in San Francisco while we were visiting. I recommend this place to anyone and look forward to returning!3/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat work lunch place!Another successful working lunch. Attentive staff, but not overly so we could get our work done. Love the food here and will continue to return to this restaurant.2/14/2013 12:00:00 AMNice time, good food and serviceNice time, good food and service - great cocktail selection (especially the Square One vodka drinks).
My only issue was that they didn't seem to be able to set-up for a party of 6 outside (there are only 4 top tables out there and they didn't seem to be able or willing to move them around for us). So, if you want to sit outside, better clarify that first, especially if you have more than 4.2/3/2013 12:00:00 AMReally fresh food!Great really fresh food that is always pleasing to the palette. The service is impeccable and the view of the Bay amazing - minus fog. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone with dietary restrictions who wants healthy and super fresh food.1/25/2013 12:00:00 AMVegetarian Gourmet and SO MUCH MOREMy favorite SF restaurant - Crab Cakes, Pita/Humus plate, Vegetarian Bowl. All were absolutely divine. Champagne by the glass was fabulous and are the wines.1/16/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food in a well presentedExcellent food in a well presented albeit touristy location.1/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExotic flavors, fresh foodRestaurant (not the cafe): Exotic combinations of flavors that tasted fantastic. Even the gluten free stuff tasted great! Hard not to order a ton of things just to try. Kind of noisy. Service good. Looks like a nice place to eat for lunch outdoors on a warm day as its by the water.1/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is amazing!Tried Cafe Organic Pre-Fixe menu during New Year's Eve. First time diner. The food was simply amazing. I got the seafood option while my GF got the vegetarian option. Both options were excellent! I didn't know about this place before but wouldn't hesitate going again.12/31/2012 12:00:00 AMOne of my favorite spots in SFIt's one of my favorite places in the city. Great for brunch, lunch and dinner. With family, friends or a date. Vegetarians, Vegans or Paleo. There's something for everyone.
I remember coming here a couple of years ago when the staff here were a little snooty, but they've been super awesome every time I've been here since that experience. And I go here very regularly :) Highly recommend this spot!12/29/2012 12:00:00 AM
