Love this place and they just keep getting better :)
Delicious. My girlfriend is gluten-free and we are both vegan and this food is real good. We loved the "brie." The crepes are great. If you like food that tastes good, I recommend this good-tasting food. This review is like a child's book report. Good job, food author (chef).
Came here for my wifes birthday. She loved it. Plan on going back soon.
Excellent food. The cheese plate is amazing. Everyone, vegan or not, should try this restaurant.
Amazing dining experience. Savory crepes and the steak frites both satisfied.
Amazing, one of the best restaurants I’ve been to in the world, everything was perfection!
First time to eat all vegan french food!
Although the place is small, you will forget about it, the minute you take the first bite. People on a date may find the table more cramped compared to a larger group. That said you get to sit close and feel connected. They only serve wine.
Food is pretty good, esp the cheese plate. But I was really disappointed in the French toast. It was four small pieces of a baguette cut in half for $15. No fruit, no additional toppings, no nothing. I thought it was a joke at first haha. But everything else was good, albeit a little pricey for what it was.
Always love this place. They have such good food. It's very small, but was perfect for a morning brunch on a weekday.
Great spot, great evening. We'll be back for sure.
Great vegan establishment! Friendly, cozy, intimate, and great food. Have gone out of their way to stay true to the French cuisine. Have been there three times already and look forward to many more visits.
I found Delice & Sarrasin on Instagram last year and have had it in my sights of vegan restaurants to get to ever since. While the food was very good, I must admit I was fairly disappointed upon arrival. The place was dimly lit, with walls that were either empty or containing very random decorations or photos
of who knows, and the seating seemed like the two tops I'd expect at a diner. I'm all for cute, cozy restaurants- I was hoping D&S would be more like some of the quaint spots I got to eat at in Paris. Instead this place was cramped. So cramped it was hot to the point that myself and my date were actively sweating- and I was dressed very light. It is such a little space that even though there were no more than 15 people there, it was hard to have a conversation at a normal volume and still be heard. The restaurant was dimly lit but I don't believe it was to contribute to the ambiance. I'd go back for the food, but with no expectations of fine dining next time around.
Amazing good food choices
Delicious food! Nice options for vegans. Definitely need reservations!
love love love this place! you really cant go wrong with anything you get but i will say the Escargot is a MUST get.. its divine.. also the seitan "duck" with he mustard sauce is so damn good. its really small in here so thats my only complaint.. you are right next to other parties and sometimes its hard to concentrate on your convo when youre so close to other people, but that wouldnt stop me from coming! also you have to make a reservation because its so small. really really good.
I've been here at least 5 times and it's become one of my favorite spots in the city. I've taken vegans and non-vegans here and it's a hit every time. The cheese plate is so delicious and surprises omnivores with its flavors. The french onion soup is something I fantasize about. That and the creme brulee are two traditionally non-vegan dishes that this place nails. Perfection. I wish I was there right now...
Great food! Terrific vegan experience in French cafe setting.
Absolutely love this place
Delish food and the nicest people
Fabulous vegan versions of classic French cuisine. Cozy atmosphere- don't go if you require a ton of elbow room! Efficient yet super-warm service. Coq Au Vin and Steak Tartare were delicious. Can't wait to return and try everything else!
Great food, great vibe, delicious food!
The food and service are both outstanding. Such a great experience. We went twice in one week!
We had a lovely time. The food was amazing and the service was phenomenal!
Utterly astounded to be able to enjoy cuisine that I thought I would never have again since going Vegan. Everything I have had here is exceptional. French onion soup, escargot and even a Cassoulet!! I never thought I could have these again. They even have crime brûlée. The galleries and crepes are to die for but the best part is, nobody has to die for them.
I had always dreamed that one day some master of French cuisine would rise to the challenge of creating dishes that are both vegan and utterly French. I just never expected to find them in my own city. Simply astounding. I could never thank you enough so I will do my best to tell everyone about it and bring as many people as I can!!!
Spectacular Vegan experience. Small but great atmosphere. Reservations are highly suggested.
I’m not Vegan but my friend is. The food was outstanding!! I highly recommend the waffles!
Great vegan food. Space is crowded and knowledgeable waiters. Would recommend for delicious vegan food
In short, the food was good, the service was not.
We had a 9pm reservation. We arrived at about 7:30 with hopes to be seated early, which didn’t happen but I have no problem with that. We instead left to go to a bar and have a couple of drinks before returning at about 8:50. When we returned we were left in the entrance way with no greeting, no update on our table, no info at all, even though there was a table open. We get sat at 9pm on the dot, but don’t receive menus until 9:10. 10 mins without seeing a waiter or a menu until I finally flagged down someone and asked for a menu.
The good note was all the food we ordered was delicious except the dessert. The dessert was the chocolate moose which was over the top bitter. We had one bite of it and told the waiter it wasn’t edible and he just said oh ok lol. It should have been removed from the bill especially since it was a birthday dinner (which was in the notes on the reservation)
Some of the food did not meet our hopes and expectations (the "duck" was a bit salty) and the "sausage" wasn't great. However, my omnivore friend was very impressed with the carrot fiber "salmon" and we enjoyed the atmosphere. The décor could have been spruced up a tad, but we enjoyed ourselves!
Always the best. The best food. The best atmosphere. The menu of French classics made deliciously all-vegan is a miracle.
The space itself is very small, so we felt as though we were crammed in. We were excited to try the food, so we didn't mind that we were crowded. There were many appealing items on the menu, most of which were foods mimicking foods I gave up being vegan. I was curious to try their food. While the food was flavorful, both of our entrees were very salty; So salty that it was hard to enjoy the other flavors.
I've eaten here a couple times for dinner and have enjoyed most of the food I've had -- their tomato mozzarella salad is one of my all time favorite dishes. But I enjoyed the brunch overall more than the dinner and would highly recommend. The waffles were crazy good, the menu was versatile and had something for everyone. I got a taste of a crepe with some chorizo in it and yum yum yum. Would go again. It's also open early for brunch!
My new favorite restaurant in the city. Will definitely be back soon!
One of my favorite places. My life partner and I love going there for special occasions or a night out when we're staying in the city.
The restaurant is very small and cramped. Service was mixed--two staff, one very attentive, the other lost in space. He took our order without a pad and forget several items. As for the food, you can dress up Vegan cuisine however you like, but at the end of the day much of it winds up tasting the same. The range of acceptable ingredients is simply too limited to create the necessary variety of flavors. We ordered onion soup, boeuf bourguignon, cassoulet, and other french standards. They were unconvincing, whether as compared to the originals for on their own terms. As an appetizer, we also tried tapenade. There should be no way to kill tapenade--you just grind up some olives in oil. This version looked like human excreta. It was most unappetizing and texturally unappealing. The best thing we tried were the truffle fries: think, crispy, and not too greasy. We have tried most of the higher end Vegan restaurants in New York by now, but the only one that seems to embrace the culture and present first class, imaginative cuisine is Avant Garden.
Our meal was wonderful and the service was friendly and quick :). Definitely get the cheese platter and French onion soup!
The escargots were phenomenal, the buckwheat bread/galettes were delicious. The boeuf bourguignon was more interesting and deep in flavor than the savory galettes (I had the egg, cheese and ham one). I believe the crepes were excellent although I did not have any. The butter sauce and whipped cream made from coconut milk tasted like the real thing. Loved this place!
The best vegan gourmet I have ever had. The cheeses in the cheese platter were amazing.
We stopped here for lunch during a cruise port visit to NYC. Although on the pricey side, where can you find vegan French food!? We really enjoyed everything we tried – French onion soup, the Verrine de Saumon, the “beef” Bourguignon. The dessert crepes were amazing. I thought it was odd that they named their dishes after the animal product version (e.g. foie gras) as in some ways that is unappealing to a vegan diner. All in all, it was a decadent treat to dine here!
I have been wanting to eat here for a long time and it did not disappoint. We had the brie appetizer and it was awesome. For entrees we had the "steak" and the "crab cake". Both were exceptional! The atmosphere is intimate as this is a cozy restaurant. Service was very informed and attentive. Be sure to make reservations if you are wanting to eat here.
