We are not vegans but love the small plates meant to be shared and creative cocktails. I have always gone for dinner. First time for happy hour with nice selection of snacks at a reasonable price.
Private shelters for outdoor seating was intimate and comfortable was attentive but not hovering.

Outdoor dining has it's limitations. Not much the restaurant can do about it. however, the timing of the food service, ALL dishes delivered at once, could have been much better.

The food and waiters were great, however the homeless people were constantly asking for money during our meal. Otherwise it’s a great place for a date night.

Quite an amazing experience. My party ordered various foods that we split amongst each other to get the best tasting variety. Loved the food and drinks. Definitely worth giving it a try.

can't rave enough about this place and we are not even vegan. Great drinks and every plate was outstanding. Best of all were the brussel sprouts but the artichokes and mushroom toast were both a close second. A total winner.

Given the circumstances the overall dining experience was fair. I think more could have been done to help the wait staff juggle the large number of tables that caused an overall lag in service. It took 20 minutes for me to get a single cocktail due to the waiter having so many tables and management not stepping in to provide some help.
The food was good. Some dishes better than others. Things often came out warm rather than HOT and some things needed more seasoning as they lacked flavor.
The cocktail was amazing! Although I had to wait a long while for it I really did enjoy it.

Ate inside. Table was in back and bit too close to kitchen, and the restaurant was bit dark. Did not realize from online reservation that the menu was meatless, but we enjoyed the plant based menu and cocktails. Great waiter/service. Fun menu/portions. Tasty food.

We had an outdoor reservation that they could not accommodate for us. They had to seat us inside otherwise our 9:00 reservation could not be honored and we’d be waiting “quite some time.” We asked if we could be moved outside once our table was ready and to that their response was yes and then they came back 20 minutes later and said “moving outside isn’t looking too hot”

the food was really bland, not exciting and not tasteful. other times my meals were OK, however we tried a few items we never had and they were all bad, even had to send some back. not worth the price. nice server though!

This place is one of very few in the area that keeps us from trying new places more regularly. The food always delivers and the drinks are some of the best in Philadelphia - without question.

We haven’t been in nearly a year because of COVID but went for my wife’s birthday and our son’s first trip into the city and it was a phenomenal experience!

Food: try the potato croquettes
Drink: Bottle Rocket

Overall not worth it. The food was fine, but the portions were small and overpriced. Our waitress was a delight, but the host that originally greeted us and brought us to our table was snarky and rude. Set the tone for a mediocre night.

One of the nicest places I’ve been out to eat! The service was great and so was the food. they accommodated us indoor dining, no wait. Also, gave my date and I free blankets for ordering hot drinks. Definitely 11/10 for vegan dining.

They have a wonderful COVID safe outdoor streetery, amazing service, delish plantbased snacks, and craft cocktails. What more could you ask for?
