    Overall it was a great experience. Our party was happy with everything except the feeling of being rushed numerous times over and over again. When you are spending a hefty amount of money no host or waitress should make you feel like that.

    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.

    Only one person in our party of four is vegan, but all of us had fabulous, satisfying meals. Service was attentive but not overbearing, friendly, and prompt. We bought their cookbook on the way out and were pleased to see recipes for some of the dishes we'd just eaten. The bar drinks were interesting, too--both alcoholic and nonalcoholic. We hope to return!

    It's hard to find a reservation, and now I know why!! As a vegetarian, I never have many menu item choices but not at Vedge! My friends (who are meat eaters) and I loved it! We shared every dish, including dessert. The service and ambience were great as well. The noise level was perfect for a conversation amongst four people. We didn't have to worry if we were a little loud. I highly recommend dining at Vedge!

    My foodwise sister and I wanted to be able to experience this popular and perfect vegan gem together so we reserved at 5pm. The service was attentive, the servers were knowledgeable and every single choice was extraordinary. The presentation was thoughtful and highlighted the beauty of the ingredients. We cannot even choose our favorites because each item was perfect. Please try Vedge! (We asked for and bought the cookbook and carried it to our theater date!)

    I never knew that I will actually enjoy a vegetarian restaurant until I dined with Vedge! The menu is very interesting and the proportions are perfect. Our server was very helpful and knowledgeable in explaining the dishes and had provided very good recommendations to order. The ginger beer is superb ! Despite that we were late on our reservation time, they have easily accommodated us. Even for last minute additional guest joining us. We dined here as a celebration of a friend's birthday, who is a vegetarian, that was fully appreciated and commended.

    This was a fourth trip to Vedge. Each time we've come away with the same view. The food was wonderful and different. With food restrictions that we have, vegan always works. Sometimes vegan is uninteresting --- but never at Vedge. Each dish is exotic and worth savoring.

    High class vegan food w/ matching service. Yet, it is not pretentious or stuffy. Very accomodating to requests. I informed our server of a soy allergy and he brought me a soy-free menu. The cost can add up when ordering several dishes. For 2 people, 2 cocktails and desert, it was $120.

    We love veggies. We are not vegetarians, nor vegan. But we are members of an organic CSA, love locally made foods, and are farmers market lovers. Vedge has gotten a lot of publicity for not only vegan/vegetarians, but for meat eaters that say it is marvelous. We found it, "precious". Just thought that the tiny little plates of precious veggies weren't enough for people to share plates (they present all the plates for sharing) - nor were we impressed by the price. It just seemed like small portions of "Portlandia"...this lima bean is from this farm type of thing. It was pretty good, but too small and too "preciously" served. The cocktails and wine/cider selection were good.

    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
