What an amazing 9 course + feast. Our party luv'd each course which was expertly presented by servers who had passion about their wildly inventive vegan cuisine.
We are vegetarians and love tasting menus. This was the best one we have ever been to. A few rogue dishes in there but we had an amazing time.
B’day great experience 😄
Dirt Candy is quite literally one of the best doing expertises I have ever had!
Interesting selection of vegan bite sized foods
We had 9 course meal and enjoyed every bite. The creativity amazed us and cannot wait to go back. The cocktails were delicious too.
44 year vegetarian and this is still the best veggie restaurant I've experienced anywhere in the world. It continues to get better and better with innovative and fun food. Just exceptional service too. Been going since it first opened in its original location and so happy to see it continue to thrive in the competitive NYC restaurant scene.
Amazing. Pure alchemy, and worth every penny. Everything is so incredibly delicious and the restaurant is so wonderful about accommodating dietary restrictions (you must inform them in advance). My friend is vegan and I am allergic to soy and they accommodated every course tailored to our needs. Their cocktails are also a must!
Everything was fantastic!!
Loved the food and the attention to details to specific dietary restrictions made the whole experience exceptional.
Such complex, creative, and surprising offerings at this restaurant - a rarity for vegetarians! Several times during the night, my friend and I just sat there quietly, trying to mentally process what we were experiencing. We had the 5 course meal, but I hope to come back sometime for the 10 course dinner. So worth it!!!
I love this place and try to bring all my veg/vegan friends through it at some point.
very innovative, unique food and experience. went here for my birthday and glad I did!
Once again, this spot has provided amazing food, service, experience. So innovative and delicious. Can't recommend enough!
The meal was absolutely delicious. We did the Vegetable Patch (5 courses) with the wine pairing. It was a great variety of food, we were quite full afterwards, and the wine pairing was fantastic. We also really appreciated the great service from the staff.
first timer to dirt candy.
not a vegetarian but appreciate + recognize good, well executed food.
glad to have had the pleasure + experience but will not rush back as nothing was particularly outstanding.
it may not seem like it at first - you do get a lot of food so pace yourself!
Totally creative menu, presented superbly. The paired wines were also wonderful, from small winemakers.
Very good, excellent service. Food was spectacular.
An extraordinary dinning experience. Exquisite food. A foodie must! We opted for the 10 course Tasting Menu. Each course got more complex with flavors, textures, vegetable combinations, sauces & presentations.
Service is well paced attentive and informative; they explain each course.
Favorites included the Tower, the duo salad course, the crunchy broccoli, the portobello mousse, the mini tangine. The palate cleansing beet ribbon in lemon was so
imaginative and really worked. Fortunately dessert was petit as we were getting pretty full.
Next time we will try the 5 course Tasting menu. I think one can also eat at the high table facing the kitchen & just get one or two items. Try the broccoli/ cauliflower “tacos”.
Dishes change with the seasons.
The food was delicious, and the bartender recommended an amazing bottle of wine for us. Service was good. Noise was loud, but I guess that’s a Friday night in New York.
The food was amazing, however their wine pairing was not. The wines were not very good in general and added nothing to the courses.
I would recommend sticking to cocktails or water
It is not an exaggeration to describe our meal as one of the best in our lives. The presentation of each dish was gorgeous. The tastes and textures were so much better than a typical meal. There is ample time between each of the multiple courses to digest. The creativity of each dish is astounding. The people were attentive, kind, patient, well-informed.
Absolutely fun and amazing. Enjoyed every course and loved every minute. Can’t wait to return.
Amazing take on vegetarian food, loved every bite.
I don’t think I would ever go here again for dinner. I find that the value of the very expensive tasting menu is not worth it. The production of the service creates the illusion of innovation and feeling fancy but the food itself was just OK even though the ingredients were interesting and sometimes exotic.
Best meal I have ever eaten, would totally recommend
Exquisite culinary experience paired with phenomenal customer service and a beautiful atmosphere. Very unique and special!
It was wonderful, new, and unique. I enjoyed how they give you either a 5 or 10 course meal. Very different flavors and it can be veggy / vegan. Would come back.
Currently serving winter menu, which is just as amazing as the summer menu. Do yourself a favor, find a way to have dinner here. Seriously.
I went into Dirt Candy without having an idea of what it was exactly, and I left completely satisfied. The food was artistic yet filling, the atmosphere was warm, and our server Wesley was incredible and knew the food and wine pairing like an expert—he even welcomed us to come back when they have the seasonal change. 5/5 all around!
Thank you for creating this restaurant. The food is incredible.
Different dining experience that I would recommend to anyone who is into a vegetarian lifestyle
Very creative beautifully presented and delicious food.
This is my second visit. I was hoping to take advantage of their solo diner promotion- as I was there without my partner as well as my friend was without hers- but they wouldn’t allow the promotion since we were dining together.The server suggested we sign up for promotions; I explained that we are on their email list which is how we were made aware of the dinner promotion.
I felt that we had to constantly ask for serving utensils , and small plates for items we shared, and though they then provided us with them it felt as if they were annoyed at our requests.
I thought that all the female servers, except the one male server, were unfriendly and “ put upon” by my presence.
I am so disappointed!
My first visit was extraordinary. I loved the service that time , March 2019, but not this time . I doubt I will return.
It’s a costly restaurant, and though unique I felt it such a bummer .
Dirt Candy is the best...amazing meal, even more amazing to have such a delicious and satisfying meal that are all vegetables. Service is among the best in the City. Very knowledgeable and caring staff!
Dirt Candy does not disappoint. If you want a creative and delicious vegan or vegetarian experience in NYC, this is the place to be.
Overall, the experience was quite good for a non vegetarian like myself. The food was quite filling and tasted great. There was an excellent diversity of menu items and an interesting take on vegetarian versions of food that would normally be a product of a fish or mammal. I would gladly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to give something different a try if they're not a vegetarian or they're a vegetarian looking for a restaraunt that caters to them.
We had very high expectations and it far exceeded them. The atmosphere was great, service was informal but impeccable. Every bite was a surprise! One of our best dinners ever. Highly recommend
What can I say about this restaurant that will be enough to describe how absolutely wonderful this place is? I almost cried with joy upon eating. Marvelous.
Absolutely amazing! I've gone to the solo diner's dinner several times in the past and they've always been fabulous. The one this year exceeded my already high expectations. Thank you Dirt Candy for another outstanding dining experience. You guys rock!
