    Vedge is thoughtful gourmet food. They are traveling on largely untrod ground, and so each dish is a new invention, often with a concept that the server can explain. The results are spectacular. New flavors abound, and combine to a harmonious whole.

    Vedge is seriously amazing and I am in love with it. Even if I weren't vegan, I would adore this place and count it among my favorites: my parents and brother are serious omnivores and loved everything just as much as I did. I can't wait to come back! I bought the cookbook, which is amazingly well-done, and am hoping that it will tide me over until I can get back to Philly to indulge again!

    An upscale vegan restaurant minus the pretension and proselytization the staff was knowledgable about the cuisine. The food for the most part was excellent. Some of the mains were misses but that might of been not the fault of the chefs rather just not a flavor that was appealing to us. I would go again and again

    I recently had dinner with a (non-vegan) friend at Vedge, and we both enjoyed our meal. We had the portabella carpaccio, cauliflower and pea crepe, and the spicy tofu for our dinner and they were all delicious--seasoned perfectly and visually appealing. We had the peanut butter fudge pretzel combo for dessert, which was also a winner. This is my fifth year as a vegan and I can say without reservation the Vedge dessert was the creamiest, most satisfying vegan dessert I've ever had. Keep up the great work!

    Interesting and inventive (for the most part) takes on vegan food. I'm most definitely not a vegan and I had a wonderful meal here. Drinks were very good, not great. Service was also very good, not great. Food was mostly excellent but some portions very small for the price. I would return.

    Vedge's menu is the most unique I've ever had. No one else prepares vegan food like this! I just wish that the portions were a little larger for the price - I found myself using my bread and, when I ran out of that, my fork to sop up all the sauces, they were that delicious! I do appreciate and understand, though, that what goes into preparing fresh produce from scratch and the unique and unusual ingredients that go into the recipes can be expensive. In spite of this, I will always return to Vedge as one of my favorite (if not my favorite) restaurants!

    Being a manager in the food & beverage industry, I am always looking for new restaurants to go and try. I have been hearing amazing feedback about Vedge ever since it opened, and this past Wednesday I finally had the chance to go and try it myself. I went with my roommate, who also works in this industry, and who is a vegetarian, and we were both blown away by the entire experience from the time we walked in the door until we walked out of it, very full and very happy an hour and a half later. The service provided was very fluid and flawless. The food was exceptional from creativity, to presentation, to taste. It was one of the best dining experiences I have had in a long while and I'm already planning my next visit.

    If I was served veggies like this when I was growing up, momma would never have had to tell me to eat my vegetables. The food here is as beautiful as it is delicious. Notable were the smoked carrots, the brussel sprouts & the fingerling potatoes. If you love chocolate, the chocolate pretzel chunk dessert is yummy. I will be back and bring more friends!

    I swear I love to eat meat and seafood and dairy and everything but no matter what I always get an urge to want to go to Phillie from NYC just to go to Vedge. Hands down my favorite restaurant. Portions are perfect to share and reasonably price. Sure I was late for my res and the restaurant called me to make sure I was coming but they did not give me any attitude at all (traffic from nyc to phillie was horrible that day), hell they even made a joke at it when we arrived! Great service as usual! Can't wait for another occasion to go back to Vedge! Its my boyfriend and I's goal to go at least once a year!

    We heard that Vedge was a vegetarian (vegan) restaurant in Philadephia that was superb and very popular. Book early because you may need to plan several weeks ahead but it will definately be worth it. The presentation and taste of the uniquely creative dishes exceeded our expectations. The service was very good and the entire staff were polite and quite responsive. By far the absolutely best restaurant of its kind that I have ever dined in.

    This was the second time my husband and I went to vedge. Again, everything was fantastic! No complaints at all. We had a tomato and corn dish, Portabello carpaccio, a cucumber dish off the dirt list, salt roasted gold beets layered with avocado and tofu, seitan, and a hearts of Palm tart, also: jelly donuts, and a dessert with cornbread and pineapples, and for drinks: the prices pool and a tequila ginger drink. We loved every bite and sip. Our servers were also fantastic!

    Was our first time and it definitely lived up to the hype. Food was amazing, drinks were great, desert was one of the best we've ever had, and a great overall experience. A bit noisy, but doable. Be prepared to dish out some money as the sharable plates add up. But again, well worth it. A trendy scene, but comfortable for just about anyone. Highly recommended.

    I have been wanting to try Vedge in months and after finally getting a Friday night table for 2 I couldn't wait to try everything on the menu. The food options were great! The flavors were so unique and I was very impressed. However, the downside is that for a table of 2 (no alcohol included) we paid $45 and left feeling slightly hungry... The portions are tiny, so make sure you order 3-4 plates per person if you go hungry.

    We loved this restaurant but we were seated by a large party and it was very difficult to have a conversation. Also, a word to the 'wise', although the food is totally vegan (and DELICIOUS!) don't think you're going to have a low-calorie meal. I left feeling that I had consumed a very rich repast. Vegan does not necessarily mean low calorie!

    We are not vegetarian but we frequently eat out. The food was excellent and beautifully presented; the restaurant easily reached the quality of the great reviews. I really don't know everything we ate but we loved it all. My wife and I each offered 3 dishes and shared them all in addition to the small snacks and the ice cream. We did not leave hungry and will certainly return. We can't wait for the opening of the 19th street venue.

    This is about my sixth visit or so. It is still tough to get a weekend reservation. Vedge is the best vegetarian restaurant I've ever been to. I like meat. Yet never miss it during the meal. Inspired cocktails. Good service. Even after ordering all sorts of things, the bill is still somewhat reasonable. The more people you bring, the more dishes you can try. And you want to try everything.

    I like my veggies but NEVER have I experienced such a range and depth of delight over an entire 3 course meal! As a lover of all things carnivorous, I had my doubts that I would feel fully satisfied after my meal but I was amazed. Every bite was delicious, the staff was welcoming and the atmosphere wasn't the least bit pretentious or stuffy. Fantastic first experience; can't wait to 'drag' along my friends to make them believers too!
