Great food - you’d never miss the meat - a bit pricey and service was just ok - but we’ll go back !

Too many tables in the tiny space — very crowded and constantly getting bumped into. Food was delicious.

Been a few times now and the food is always fantastic! Great service too. Very consistent. It can get quite loud, so be prepared to speak up!

Even though it was a small space, they graciously accommodated our party of 11. The food came out quickly and was delicious!

Amazing, delicious Vegan food. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Clean bathroom, beautiful bar and just lovely place. Can’t wait to go back and also try the other Matthew Kenney restaurants. This was a first time vegan experience for some family of mine and they were so pleasantly surprised which made me so happy. Thank you for sharing this beautiful food ☮️

The food was excellent but it was so cramped. We went on Valentine's Day and were packed like sardines. The servers could hardly pay any attention to us. Many mistakes were made with our orders and the parties to our left and right. I would guess that it is probably not like this on regular days, but I will probably not be going back to find out.

The food is very good. We have eaten here multiple times. This review is mostly for the Valentine’s Day special menu which was very good. It was unfortunate that the service was incredibly slow and inattentive. The kitchen seemed particularly behind even though there was a fixed menu. At $65 per person with no drinks, one would have expected a little more food as the appetizer- nachos or guacamole - was one serving to share. Dinner was almost two hours by the time we had the full menu due to the long wait time between dishes. Overall, a bit of a disappointment and not typical of our experience on previous visits.

We went during Valentine’s Day... the food was great and the waiter was accommodating but, the food took too long to come out!! Other patrons were getting their food before us even though we had been there longer with an earlier reservation. We were there for two hours and most of the of time was spent waiting for the food!! I’m not sure if it was because of Valentines Day or high volume but the fact that they also added gratuity on top of requesting tip with the long wait was unacceptable. Give us the choice to choose!

From beginning, attentiveness was give. Food was excellent that night. The guacamole was impeccable. Because it got busy a little later, I had to do two or three reminders for another round after my third drink 😝. Overall good and I would go again!

MKC never disappoints and the fact that 3 of his restaurants are right next to each other is even better. The cauliflower enchiladas were amazing and so were the nachos and my beverage as well. The Paloma.

Great experience. Couldn't hear the waitress name as it was a little loud but she had a nice tattoo on her arm and was very attentive. Food was excellent and so was the passion fruit margarita.

Everything from the food to the service was amazing. We were a rather large party, and we had an extra guest show up, the staff was incredibly accommodating . Everyone including those who weren't vegan/ were skeptic to try vegan food loved everything from our meals to the desert option, the drinks were amazing as well. We will definitely be coming back here soon.

Two words: Mushroom. Empanadas.
OMG! this was soooo good! The food was completely outstanding, but the empanadas blew me away!
We had the nachos (so good!), the quesadillas (amazing!), the empanadas (unreal!) and the wild mushroom carnitas tacos. This last one was really good, but my least favorite of all we had. Then, chocolate churros (delicious!). It was an amazing meal! Will be back!

By far one of my favorite restaurants in the city. What a gem! Amazing service and ambiance. The food is excellent. This is plant-based menu for ANYONE. It’s no longer about being “vegan” — it’s about sustainability — and having plant-based options to eat is key. You will not compromise on flavor here - this menu redefines plant-based. And the presentation of each plate is exquisite. Please open a 2nd location anywhere on the west side!!!

The food was delicious! Best nachos ever. I cannot wait to go back. It was an incredibly lively Friday night in there, though, and really quite loud and cramped. The food completely made up for any negatives in the ambiance department, though. It would not stop me from going back.

We went to Bar Verde after visiting the ArcadiaEarth exhibition on Broadway. After seeing room after room about what we are doing to the planet and how we can help make it better, an amazingly tasty vegan meal from Bar Verde was the quintessential end to the evening. Delicious beyond, it reminded our table that vegan can be as good as any other meat or dairy filled foods.

Best Mexican in NYC (considering it’s vegan). Nachos are a must! Best tacos: jackfruit and wild mushrooms

Andrea really made our night for Thanksgiving Dinner. The only thing I’d change is the soup - too acidic for us. Please never remove the jackfruit bowl!!
