    The staff at Kale My Name worked very hard to ensure my large party had a good time. We celebrated my moms birthday and one of the waiters led the whole restaurant in a Stevie Wonder rendition of Happy Birthday. He had a beautiful voice! I would absolutely come back and bring others in the future.

    We were not greeted upon arrival. The restaurant was not busy but staff were continually walking past us ignoring the fact that our party of 4 and another couple were waiting. Finally, after approximately 15 minutes, we had to stop someone as they we're about to walk past again and ask to be seated. We were rudely told to sit at any empty table! Once we got our server he "did his job" but was not personable at all. The atmosphere is great and the food, that we ordered, was good. I guess we need to go when the owners are present to receive a pleasant experience with the working staff.We were excited to try the food but the staff made the experience an unpleasant experience. Guests should be greeted and acknowledged upon entering the restaurant, witha a smile, not ignored until they stop several passing staff after 15 minutes! Also, being told to "sit at any empty table" when there is a PLEASE WAIT TO BE SEATED sign is unacceptable, not to mention the tables were not wiped down! Definitely need customer service training.

    Love the ambiance of Kale My Name, the staff is great. We had the fried oyster mushrooms, fries, Tab's salad and chicken and waffles. The fries were delicious and Tab's salad was my favorite. The oyster mushrooms were OK. My friend is not vegan but enjoyed the chicken and waffles. Also had the dragon fruit lemonade which was Delicious. The restaurant is a vibe and definitely worth visiting for the experience.

    The owner is extremely nice I just think the waiters were very inattentive from the time I walked in to when I wanted to pay for my bill, I waited like 20 mins to get my check after I asked. Def need better waiters

    The food was spectacular! Yes, the cauliflower wings are everything but Tab’s salad was it for me because ‘that’s my business!’ Oh and the lavender lemonade, very good! It was easy to feel Tabitha’s spirit there and to see glimpses of her personality throughout. Also, I cannot sleep on the staff. Louis was our server and he was a joy to meet. Everyone was genuinely gracious and made the experience beautiful. My only disappointment was that I brought my book, Feeding the Soul, to snag an autograph just in case Miss Tab happened to be there but she wasn’t. Definitely on my list to return soon. Thank you Kale My Name!

    Family vacation and my mom wanted to try the restaurant. I am not a vegan eating and I do not like cauliflower at all. Hands down love the waffle and fried cauliflower wings was delicious. Tried several different dishes but next to the waffle the burrito was outstanding. I would say ever in town try it.

    Mothers Day I brought my mother, grandmother and sister here which none of them are vegan (I am) and they said the food was nothing short of amazing. The service was terrific, everyone was so nice, respectful and accommodating. I so enjoyed myself and the atmosphere was heavenly. I didn’t expect to meet Tabitha but it was such a blessing and glad I did. She is such a beautiful and sweet soul. I thank God for her and all the other beautiful souls living within their purpose. We love to see it. Thanks so much #KaleMyName

    This was my 3rd visit but first time dining in. It was a much better experience dining in. We were able to enjoy the total package. The food started arriving to the table within 15 minutes of ordering. If it had arrived any sooner I would have worried that we were being served items that had been pre cooked. It's nice to know that preparation occurred upon order and that what came out was fresh and made upon order rather than sitting around. Pricey but I know vegan foods require a bit more ingenuity , skill in presentation , fresh herbs etc so that was fine. out table enjoyed every item ordered. The brunch burger was very good. The Mushroom Burrito was very good... I am going to try this recipe at home. I plan to try the flagship in Chicago while there. stay tuned.

    The food was piping hot and delicious. The dried Jackfruit nuggets, delicious. I would say to cut them a little smaller b4 frying them. The waffle was thick and sweet. And my friend f them tacos up...lol. She said, they were amazing to be vegan. And the Strawberry Lemonade was perfect as well. You can taste the sweet and tartness at the same time. Eating with Gold flatware made me feel real special at Kale My Name. 😄

    We were thrilled to go visit TABITHA BROWN'S location when we were visiting LA from Florida. We tried the cauliflower wings (yum) and the Jackfruit tacos. First time having jackfruit, very delicious. I have a coconut allergy and was just thrilled to know that in addition to being vegan it is a nut-free establishment! Delicious.

    I'm sure this place would have a high rating but I made reservations for 11:00am on a Friday. Drove from an hour away because it was my birthday and I have been wanting to check it out. We arrived at 11:00am and the place was closed. Workers standing outside said there was an issue and would not open for another hour and a half. Did not wait for an hour and a half went to a different restaurant. That was a bummer for sure.

    First visit, not a lot of parking so we had to park in the neighborhood. We were seated right away and able to place order soon thereafter. Our appetizer arrived in a good amount of time and was delicious. My daughter received her meal (tacos) approximately 15 minutes before I had to ask about & received my meal (wrap),There was a large group across from us, so I believe that may have created the significant delay. We both ordered flavored limeades and found them to be too sweet. We added water, which made a big difference. Our meal was a bit pricey, which I kinda expected since it was Vegan.

    I was excited to see a new vegan restaurant in the valley. I had high hopes. The food is good. The prices not so much. $22 for tofu scramble. Portions are too large. Probably enough to share one entree but that was not explained to us and we wouldn’t have done that anyway because we wanted different items. I didn’t like the location (strip mall) or atmosphere. It was $76 for two people for breakfast They charged extra for everything including sweetener for the coffee and jam for the toast. The only redeeming quality is that the food was very good but that isn’t enough. At that price I’d rather go to a restaurant with atmosphere. If you’re a foodie and you don’t care about value or atmosphere Try it. I will not be going back.

    Wow, my wife sent me here to check it out (Brown Sugar Baking Company - Seattle, WA). She's been following Tabitha and has met her at one of the food shows in Anaheim. So, as a non-vegan married to a vegan chef...I get to sample and dine in all things vegan. Kale My Name LA did not disappoint. The Tofu Scramble was amazing and it had all the right spices. Now it was a drive from Central LA to the location but once I sat down and had a chance to relax...it was all good. I really enjoyed the fresh juices that they offer as well.
