    This is the worse vegan food I've had! The catfish bites were extremely salty, green beans were flavorless ant the macaroni was mushy! I had a piece of sock it to me cake and it was ok until I got to the bottom layer and it was a wad of sugar caked up in one spot. I won't be back too much money to throw it away on gross food. Highly disappointed

    Stopped in when visiting my son in Detroit. Enjoyed the creative menu, especially as a vegetarian with celiac. The service needed to be hailed, and the pricing was a bit heavy for the ingredients. My other non-vegetarian/vegan son asked for fried potatoes to be reminded they're unavailable until after 4p....just to see the table next to us receive 2 orders. Must say...fantastic greens and black-eye peas, all well flavored!

    It was such an amazing experience. I loved the staff!😊 I had a great birthday dinner. I couldn't of chosen a better place to celebrate. Whenever I come home to visit family from college I will definitely be coming back to Detroit Vegan Soul. The food is really tasty and the atmosphere is just really pleasant!☺️ The best vegan Mac & Cheese and vegan catfish!😋

    I'm so months into being a pescotarian and DVS is my go to when I don't feel like being bothered cooking. This was my third visit and each entree is better than the next. I'd recommend Detroit Vegan Soul to anyone who's a foodie, regardless of them being a vegan, vegetarian or not

    Although the food and service was good the manager/owners have no idea what they signed up for when they listed their restaurant on Open Table. Two days after my reservation I realized I did not recieve my points and when I called to inquire about why they didn't confirm my reservation when I had shown up for it they were basically baffled as to why I would need confirmation of this. The manager promised to call me back later that day to see if she could accomodate my request and she never did. I did call back the next day for her to tell me they have no idea what I was talking about regarding "points". I did not bother to call back, instead I called Open Table and...Wah Lah!!! I received my points. Point is....dont bother with making a reservation through Open Table, they dont follow through with confirming a reservation has been made.

    We had the soul food option... which lacked soul. Presentation was not there as well, it seemed to cater to a certain class and color. Although, the collard greens were the best tasting of the entire meal. Disappointed in the silver dollar sized cornbread as well..and the noodles in the veggie mac and cheeses was entirely too soft(mushy).

    Took a friend there last week to celebrate her birthday. Funny thing is we considered going there the year before and somehow didn't. We both loved the food. The black eyed pea hummus is a meal itself so I took my BBQ tofu sandwich home for a later meal. I will definitely return and order the catfish tofu (my friend had and I tasted hers, DELISH). Wished they had something for special occasion dining like a vegan cupcake with a candle for my friend.

    This! Detroit is so lucky to have this amazing spot in the West Village. If I could, I would eat here every single day! Kirsten and Erika and their crew cook up the tastiest vegan soul food you can imagine. Some of my favs are the soul platter (mac-n-cheese, collards, yams, black-eyed peas, and cornbread), the BBQ tofu (sweet BBQ sauce, and accompanied by corn, kale, and potato salad), and the catfish tofu (cornmeal battered tofu, broccoli and corn, and redskin potatoes). I have taken non-vegans/non-vegetarians and they are equally as impressed. Make sure to also check out the desserts, made with love by Kirsten's mom! Delicious!

    Pretty good vegan soul food. Lovely neighbourhood. Friendly, welcoming service. Fried broccoli and soul platter were very good. The seitan pepper steak was ok but the seitan was a bit mushier than I would prefer. The fry basket fries weren't crispy, they were tasty though. I would return when in Detroit.

    Quaint restaurant in what seems like a safe area. No problem parking. Service was good. Food very tasty. Recommend the fried broccoli app. Only negative was they were out of cornbread for the entire meal. They said it was still cooking when we left an hour later. A soul food restaurant should never run out of cornbread. Other than that it is a must for any vegan or vegetarian. There is something for everyone

    Ordered a starter with the main entrée and before I knew it, the main entrée was at the table. I then cancelled the starter... The portion size was small for the price $13. I ordered the BBQ tofu and it came out already in bite sized pieces. I was expected a slice of tofu grilled in the BBQ sauce. The corn on the cob was only about 2 inches long. The kale was cooked okay. Best part of the meal was the strawberry milkshake and strawberry dessert . Probably best to stick with the sandwiches instead of the entrees for a better value.
