One of my very favorite restaurants, Candle 79 never fails to impress. Amazing food beautifully presented by a wait staff that knows when to come--and when to give diners a chance to talk.
Food was very good. Waiter and hostess were a bit aloof. Would have been nice if they were a bit more personable. The spicy martini was great.
Cozy meal at the bar with my daughter. The ravioli appetizer is delicious as is the seitan main course. Dessert is to die for - ice cream cookie sandwich with chocolate sauce! Their spicy senorita drink so gooood! This is a neighborhood gem with great service and even better food!
Candle 79 is a wonderful spot for a date or to delve into the vegan scene. The comfortable ambiance sets a strong aesthetic backdrop for the kaleidescope of intense flavor you are about to experience. I must say, having a beautiful, sexy date can subjectify my night but the restaurant was dope yo. I dug it.
But yea, my date was sexy AF
We really enjoyed our dinner at Candle 79! Everything that we ordered was extremely tasty, and I am not currently vegan. Looking to transition.
The service was also great and prompt.
Normally the service is good but this night it was not so great. Hostess barely acknowledged us and then made us wait. Had to repeatedly ask for things once seated. Food was great so it made up for the so so service.
Such amazing food!
We were visiting NYC for two days and this was one of the four restaurants we went to. Fantastic. Perfect for our anniversary and some great ambiance. We had the cheese plate, rissoto, and Moroccan chickpea. All fantastic! The pairings on the cheese plate were great (wish there was more... but that's because I loved it and wanted more!) yummy, beautiful, and first class service! Thank you so much for the highlight of our trip!!
The food is great for vegetarians. But the waiting time was way too long
Absolutely delicious!! Clean food and clean service
Great food and a birthday candle in ice cream to celebrate my birthday. A quiet place with great ambiance and food
Consistently amazing. My husband is not a vegan but he loves eating at Candle 79 because the food is varied and flavorful.
amazing food & amazing service! the appitizer - the main course - the dessert - the wine - the cocktail...all PERFECT...!
This is definitely a vegan/ healthy eating hot spot
The food was great but the ambiance felt off — a bit old and dark. I don’t think it fit the vibe of the hip menu.
I love Candle 79. It's one of my favorite vegan restaurant options in NYC. The food is really creative and flavorful, it's fresh, healthy, delicious and satisfying. It's not that kind of adulterated vegan food that's masquerading as non-vegan food. It's not greasy or fried to death. The restaurant is elegant and fancy, without being unapproachable. I love coming here and highly recommend it - make a reservation!
One of our favorite places to visit when we are in town.
Delicious, inventive food for vegans and non-vegans alike.
Absolutely delicious and lovely. The service was great and the food was phenomenal!! As a vegan, one choice was better than the next. The manager visited our table twice during our visit. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a romantic, delicious and healthy meal.
this restaurant was amazing in every way possible! So far my best experience in new york!!
We were recommended this restaurant, and were not disappointed, would return, staff very helpful and service was good
This is our favorite vegetarian restaurant in NYC. We've dined here multiple times and have always found the offerings to be fresh, creative, well-prepared, and delicious. Service is highly professional as well, and the ambiance is pleasantly upscale without feeling stuffy or pretentious. This is a great destination if you have a mixed party of omnivores, vegetarians, and vegans because everything is so delicious and no one needs to feel like they're making a sacrifice to accommodate their fellow diners. Interesting wine and cocktail selections are an added plus.
My wife and I, on a visit to New York, dined at Candle 79 for our anniversary. The service was impeccable, the food was top notch and the ambiance was a notch above even the most well heeled of vegan restaurants we've been to. Superlative in every way!
We had a lovely meal at brunch time last Sunday, and each ordered a glass of Cabernet (without checking the menu first). The single glasses of wine, we discovered, tend to be about $11 a class except Cabernet which was $17 a glass. When we expressed our surprise to our server, he basically shrugged his shoulders. Then the hostess told us that their clientele don’t complain about such things. The manager wrote a response to our Yelp review promising to make up for the poor experience, but a week later still has not been in contact.
Excellent meal and service with a very chilled but classy atmosphere. Got the brunch prix fixe which came with a meal, dessert and drink for $32. All of the food was amazing with very filling portions.
Was really impressed with the food!
Our waitperson was delightful, the food was brought relatively quickly and was very tasty. Tables are at close quarters but, hey! It's Manhattan!
Lovely. It was a first time visit to New York for my boyfriend and I. We wanted to do something special and everything about this place was top notch. We will be going back the next time we are in town.
the best vegan restaurant imaginable! superb food. professional staff. nice setting quiet reasonable prices. fantastic food and drinks menus. a true gem!
I'm not a vegan, but my daughter is and my wife has dairy allergies so this is a good choice for us. The food is gourmet quality, very inventive, delicious and satisfying! We always have a great meal at any of the Candle restaurants.
Absolutely excellent service and the food was pure bella! Through and through an excellent to place to eat with just the right amount of everything
Always a excellent vegan meal with friendly service!
Dinner was exceptional! The menu diverse and the service was wonderful! Having recently changed to a plant based diet I am noticing - there aren't a lot of options. Finding Candle 79 was like finding a Gem.
I took my Husband for his Birthday and dinner was absolutely wonderful and exceeding our expectations.
We will be back!
Everything was excellent. Will definitely return and recommend to friends.
Great meal for out of town vegetarians. Loved it. Wish we lived closer than a 7 hour drive!
A great vegan restaurant with many options from which to choose.
Delicious food, presentation could be better. Lovely service.
Special beyond Meat burger was very tasty!
Food and service was excellent. Many healthy choices and high quality and flavor
Very good choice for vegans
