Something BAD happened to this place. It went from a delightful food experience, to a "holy crap this food tastes like dog food" type of experience. Really, I dont know if the recipe book got lost over the pandemic, but SOMETHING isn't right. They started the morning off with no pastries!!! 9am Sunday, not a single pastry. The avocado toast was harder than the concrete out front. Everything seems to have been lost over quar. Steer clear. Moby, sell this place or shut it down. Something is offfffff.

It was disappointing. My husband is vegan, I’m vegetarian so it’s nice to have a “special occasion” vegan restaurant close by. Last night was our first time eating there post-pandemic. We both loved the outdoor seating area made from a converted parking lot. Unfortunately that was the highlight of our evening. We got the Savoy Salad which was good, an unusual combination of purple kale, beets, strawberries and pistachios, and very fresh. The crispy brussel sprouts were terrible, almost burned and lacking salt, and similarly, the cauliflower was soggy and had very little flavor. The piccata was crispy but had little seasoning and the sauce was so sour and garlicky that it was almost inedible.

Our other visits have been much better. I hope they find what they seem to have lost.

Very dissatisfied. Not many great gluten free options. Tried both salads. The little gem was bland and the croutons seemed stale? The kale was tough and bitter and the dressing overly acidic. The mac and cheese came out faster than the salad which tells me it wasn’t made to order and again the croutons were stale and it lacked any flavor, I used Sriracha for taste. And the mixed veggies were the saddest of all. It seemed they were barely steamed or boiled at best. They weren’t tender and they were wet. I don’t even think they used salt. They sprinkled some sesame seeds on top and gave two sauces on the side, we were not told what they were, but the wateriness of the veggies diluted any flavor they hoped to help. They were also not the correct mix of veggies listed on the menu. When I asked if there was any organic or biodynamic wine on the menu, the sever replied with I don’t know. When I asked if she would check, the bartenders response was also I don’t know. Poor quality. Poor experience. Worst vegan meal I have honestly had.

I wouldn't voluntarily go to a vegan restaurant, but I have to say Little Pine is very good. I didn't miss animal products at all, and their faux sausage and prosciutto could fake out anyone. It's very casual, but the chill ambience is perfect on a sunny day.

Thank you for taking the time to offer your feedback. What we've been serving for the last couple months is a stripped-down version of our old menu, but we have a brand new executive chef who will be bringing beautiful, innovative, and delicious items to our menu in the very near future. I hope that you'll come and check us out again so you can fall in love with our restaurant all over again. Josh

As a long time patron of this restaurant I was excited to come back post pandemic. The food was atrocious, every meal seemed to be lackluster compared to the previous experiences with their offerings. For fine dining I would not suggest this ever again.

Hi Sadathis, I'm extremely sorry to hear about your recent visit with us. We've had a little trouble getting our bearings with the recent, major uptick in business, but there is zero excuse for the experience you've written about here. We have recently brought on a new executive chef and menu we'll be introducing in the near future is extremely impressive, and I dearly hope that you'll check back in with us soon. Josh
