    Creative menu. An excellent vegan restaurant. Menuwise they have outdone themselves compared to their earlier restaurant. I would rank their food as one of the best in Philly. I personally prefer it to some of the "iron chef restaurants". The only drawback is that the hardwood floor interior seems to amplify the sound from conversations going on at various tables making the restaurant rather noisy.

    I was so glad to find an upscale vegan restaurant in Philadelphia. Their Happy Hour menu is amazing, and people must try the crispy cauliflowers and kimchi tacos. I tried their tasting menu too. The first dish was complimentary, and it wasn't on the menu. The chef put too much soy sauce, and I started getting nervous about the rest of the menu. However, other things on the tasting menu were very good or excellent except the tofu dish. It was too salty... My favorites were the salad with roasted beets, crepe filled with hearts of palm, and saffron ice cream. Only the trumpet mushroom of the trumpet mushroom was great. I'd recommend their crispy cauliflowers, kimchi tacos, sweet potato patee, salads, hearts of palm crepes, and desserts.

Each dish had a variety of taste sensations that were interesting and different. The vegetable dishes were unique. I will definitely be going here again!

    Went with several industry people and they agreed that the service was not very good. Our plates took forever to be cleared. We had to ask for sharing plates even after stating, we're sharing please place everything in the middle. Our waiter walked away from us as I was about to order a drink twice. Not cool. The food was awesome. The lighting could have been righter, but the food was incredibly tasty.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    The restaurant is very well designed, with a very nice layout and interesting choice of finish materials. Tables are a bit too close together. The wine list has many good choices. The service is good with knowledgeable staff. The food was varied and interesting but many dishes were only OK and there were surprisingly few vegetables on each plate. This is a small plates restaurant and the wait staff suggests that each person order 2 or 3 dishes so you will have enough to eat. If you order a glass of wine, 3 dishes and dessert, it becomes an expensive meal.

    Hands down, THE best vegan fine dining experience I've ever had. And this is coming from someone who has been vegan for 5+ years, and has spent the last 6 months traveling around the US eating at as many vegan restaurants as she can find. The ONLY notable negative was that my server seemed unhappy or less than thrilled to be there. The other wait staff appeared fine though. This is definitely a classy place that's perfect for an upscale, fancy dinner. A+

    Our group of four included two (cheating) vegetarians and two omnivores--no vegans. But nobody left disappointed. The food is creative and delicious, with superb presentation. The wait staff was friendly and helpful, orienting us first-timers to the menu. Service was a tad on the slow side; it took far longer than it ought to have for second drinks to show up at the table. But this is a quibble. It was a pricy night out, for sure--but it was worth it to celebrate a special occasion with a spectacular meal.
