    Highlights in short: loved the decor (traditional with a twist), the service (attentive, but not in your face, polite, friendly, and anticipatory), and the drinks (inventive and well-mixed, even the non-alcoholic ones). Food: Could go on forever, but in sum, each course had more than one high note and altogether, Vedge inspired us all to try cooking similar dishes at home! My favorite course had to be the initial "for the table" option. My favorite dish was The Spicy Grilled Tofu. My favorite Dirt List item was the Brussels Sprouts. And dessert's Chocolate Uber Chunk was reminiscent of Marcie Turney's salted caramel budino in a smaller package with a pretzel-peanut crust. Scrummy!

    I have been to many vegetarians restaurants that have blown me away with the transformation of veges into something incredible and savory! However, Vedge served us just what it was - vegetables. The taste was great and the small plates were a perfect size; however, I was not in awe of them nor did I notice any phenomenal transformation from the usual appearance - that is until dessert. They served up ice cream, gelato, and a chocolate pretzel delight. The flavors were exciting and delicious. This was the transformation i was hoping for with the main platters - the sweet corn and chocolate whiskery ice cream were fabulous as was the stout ice cream. The service was fantastic. Everyone worked together and the restaurant was very busy!

    I have wanted to go to Vedge for the longest time. Last night was the night. From the moment I walked in, I loved the laid back bar area and relaxed vibe of the dining area. The service was top notch and the food was out of this world. I am vegetarian and this was the best vegetarian/vegan meal that I've had. And, one of the best meals regardless of it being vegan. The fingerling potatoes, be still my heart. The zucchini dan dan noodles were so light and refreshing. Dessert - Double yum. I will be back!!!!

  • Sensory Overload
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/28/2014
    I had been dying to go to Vedge and finally got to go with my mom. We both eat a mostly plant based diet. Our waitress was just great!!but if your not a big eater listen to this advise...the waitress recommended we chose 3 plates off of the 3 different menu sub choices. It was just too much food and too many different flavors and new things that we have never had before. It was sensory overload. Please don't get me wrong. The food was really good and the waitress explained anything we asked about. I feel like it just would of been better to have gotten maybe two things or better yet. The menu should offer a meal that comes with 3 complimentary items chosen from the chef.

    First time at Vedge on my birthday. From start to finish the food was innovative, fresh and delicious! The service was near perfect, they are a WELL oiled machine. If I had to make one critique, they could have had a slowed the delivery down by a bit. I could totally become a Vegan if I had this food at by back and call everyday.

    noted: The Vedge was one of the best in the country. Our family is vegetarian with many vegan days. We have frequented other vegan/vegetarian restaurants over the years with joyous results. Your restaurant is not kid friendly your food seemed pretentious and over dressed. We also felt like some of the food was meat like and not enjoyable. The Spicy tofu reminded me of salmon and the other item ordered seemed like salmon fish eggs were on the bottom of the pile (don't remember the name) Some food was not identifiable. Your wait staff was superior to many, however the carrot dish with one roasted carrot cut into pieces and stuck into I don't know what that had cardboard favor was just plain silly. sorry,

    Vedge was so great! They have an extensive gluten-free menu as well. We ordered only off of that and didn't feel like it compromised our experience like most places. Seriously delicious food. Our server was really nice and very educated on food and food prep processes in general (not just menu specific). I would pass on the drinks next time which were meh and just let myself focus on the amazing food.

    We were disappointed with our dining experience after hearing so much about Vedge. Portion sizes were good and some of the dishes were excellent. Others just did not taste good at all. The menus are frustrating. The drinks menu has descriptions that are ridiculous and ingredients that have to be explained by the server. The dinner menu also requires lengthy explanations. It was a very long dinner.

    I don't know why I waited so long! I've had dining at Vedge on my radar for quite some time and finally got around to going. The food was fantastic and the service was excellent. The restaurant itself was lovely, had great atmosphere and even though every table was occupied, it was not loud. I had the Grilled Seitan for my main dish. I'm not a huge seitan fan but this changed my mind. The flavor was excellent and my omnivore sister tasted it and completely thought it tasted like a grilled piece of meat. She had the Braciole and enjoyed it but thought my dish was the stand out. I will definitely go again despite it being an hour away from where I live.

    The food was excellent, especially the cucumber soup, the potatoes, heirloom tomato tartare, and the ice cream, however we felt the service was too efficient . We would have preferred to engage our server in conversation rather than the clipped answers we received to our questions. We are vegan and wish Vedge would open up a restaurant in Boston. We tasted 9 of the items and they were all excellent. A very memorable dining experience. Highly recommend

    My fiance and I loved Vedge. Great attentive service, lovely atmosphere. We had the golden beets with avocado and tofu...wonderfully fresh and delicious. We also had the shaved smoked brussel sprouts with mustard aioli....And we loved it so much. I will never see brussel sprouts the same again. I sldo loved the portabello carpaccio with pickled eggplant dish. This place is a must visit location. My fiance is a meat eater and I am more of a veggie lover...but both he and I were both thrilled and wish we could go again soon! Unfortunatly, we wont be able till our next trip to Philly, but we will return!

    I had been meaning to visit Vedge for several years now, but just now managed to get a reservation after a few attempts. And it was totally worth the wait (though of course, I wish I had gone sooner). Everything was absolutely outstanding - service was great, and the food was truly excellent. We tried several things from the menu, and could have devoured the entire menu if time (and money) allowed. I was truly impressed by the quality and care taken in preparation. Might I add the sauces on every single item were delicious, and if it were socially acceptable, I would have eaten them with a spoon. If you've been considering a visit to Vedge, do not hesitate!

    Expect a high decibel dinner when you go to Vedge. If you want to have a quiet conversation with a dinner partner, look elsewhere. The food selections are creative, well-prepared, and delicious. The chili-smoked almonds are remarkable - if you like spice as much as we do - and put paid to the notion that vegan food is bland and boring. Other tasty dishes were: shaved brussel sprouts, spring peas & cauliflower with a buckwheat crepe. Unfortunately, the bread does not stand up to the quality of the other food. It tastes like supermarket white bread and is a notable disappointment in an otherwise excellent meal.
