  • One of the best vegetarian/vegan restaurants
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 11/24/2014
    Delicious, inventive food and drinks, from starters to dessert. Perfectly cooked, prepared, combined, nicely plated (lots of colors and textures!). Great flavor combinations, textures. I will definitely visit every time I'm in Philadelphia. I think it's one of the best vegan restaurants I've visited in the U.S., maybe better than Millenium in San Francisco, and more affordable than Pure in NYC. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Romantic setting with dark wood and dim lighting. Great prices for the generous portions and high quality.

    I've been to Vedge several times and always have a great experience. The food is superb - unique combinations - not your typical restaurant fare. I love to see what new items are on the menu. The flavor combinations are mouth watering and delightful! The wait staff are knowledgeable and prompt. I love the ambiance - kind of low-key chic.

    We were visiting Philly from New York and were looking for a fun-foodie-type restaurant with a romantic/date night ambiance. Vedge totally delivered! The food was some of the best we've ever had and the service was outstanding!! The servers were all very knowledgeable about the wine and food and catered to us like we were in a fine dining establishment. Eating at Vedge isn't just about eating - it's about experiencing incredible flavor combinations and beautiful food presentations. It's edible art. Meat eaters be not afraid - I would bring my steak eating dad here any day and even he would be impressed with the incredible flavor combinations. Oh and hands down - the best seitan I've ever had. We would come back to Philly just to eat at Vedge!!

    In a city with great restaurant choices, a vegan restaurant has managed to be as good as any restaurant serving meat. The food was inventive and delicious. The service was great. Our server Kate was very knowledgeable and managed to be relaxed and attentive at the same time. Overall a great experience.

    I've been to Vedge a few time and am always blown away. I now what you're thinking - how can vegan food be worth the hype, right? Well - it is. This isn't steamed tofu and brussels sprouts. The chefs here work miracles with vegetables. The bartenders work those miracles, too, with creative and delicious drinks. Even if you aren't sold on the food, hit the bar for happy hour one day - you won't be disappointed.

    My husband and I are both meat lovers, and both of us agree that this vegan dinner was one of the best meals we've ever had! We ordered two plates from each of the three sections of the menu. Everything was excellent. I would highly recommend the market board as a starter - a great and flavorful variety of pickled, marinated, and fermented vegetables - especially loved the lupine beans. Upon taking my first bite of the roasted maitake mushroom entrée, all I could say was, "oh my God!" - just a perfect combination of flavors and textures. The eggplant braciole was also excellent - the filling had such a meatiness and savoriness (I don't think that's a real word, but you get it), it was hard to believe it was vegan. So many other things on the menu that we didn't have the opportunity to try - we will be going back soon! Though the food stole the show, the staff was highly attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly without being over bearing. A great experience - I can't recommend this place highly enough.

    My husband and I went here for our 1 year anniversary and it was great. Delicious food and cocktails. The menu is a bit confusing if it's your first time, but our waiter was very helpful and made recommendations. Leave room for dessert - the custard with miso chocolate pocky was heavenly. It's pricey, but worth it for a romantic date or special occasion.

    We had dinner at Vedge on Saturday evening, celebrating our 36th wedding anniversary. It did not disappoint; the food was beautiful to look at, was delicious, and the waitstaff was perfect. They were attentive and they were able to answer any questions we had about the meal. The desserts were incredible, and the sangria was easily the best we'd ever had.

    Dined on 11/7/2014
    I think the headline sums it up. We heard so many great things that we really expected things to be spectacular. Everything was tasty, but nothing was really exceptional. The only other comments is the stereo typically non-vegetarian comment. If it wasn't for one potato dish we ordered (and the rich desert) I might have left hungry. Most of the dishes were quite light, which can be good as I often end up overfull at other restaurants ... so pay attention to what you order not all dishes are as filling as others.

    So no egg plant parmagian, or fried cauliflower. My family is not vegetarians but thought they would find something but really it is for up scale vegetarian. And that's not me. I don't like paying 125.00 for three people to eat fancy vegetables. I came I went I saw and don't need to go again. It was a great experience, the food for me was very delicious but like anything else I want the value for the price and for me it wasn't worth it.

It is wonderful (and rare) as a vegetarian to go to a restaurant and not worry about questioning things I can eat on the menu, knowing I can just pick anything. On top of that, knowing whatever I do pick will be the highest quality and taste...it is about time!

    Vedge is one of our favorite restaurants. We live in San Francisco, and weekend in Napa. We're amateur foodies. Whenever we visit Philadelphia, which is about every 4 months, we go out of our way to find an evening for supper at Vedge. This past weekend, our plane arrived at 9:20 PM. We hoped in a cab, went straight to the restaurant, and were a few minutes early for our 10:15 PM reservations. We parked our luggage behind the wine cooler, and were seated immediately. Not surprisingly, the meal was outstanding! It's totally changed my thinking about vegan. It can be incredibly delicious, when done well. Nobody does it better than Vedge.

    Hard to believe it's vegan. Tapas-style plating provides the right amount of food when following server advice for one dish/person/course. Rich and varied flavors. My husband and daughter loved dishes that included ingredients they normally don't like. I would recommend highly even to non-vegetarians. Prices are high, but we felt it was worth it!

    What an eye-opening experience! Creamy sauces, wonderful flavors, great texture all without dairy and meat. The presentation was fantastic, flavors amazing and the service was exceptional. Make sure to follow the servers recommendation to order at least one entree from each section of the menu or you will go home hungry. The serving sizes of the items we ordered were not large, so you definitely need to order a bunch of them. Well worth the wait for a reservation.
