We absolutely loved this unique styled vegan restaurant. The entry way for starters is very welcoming with a touch of oasis reeling.
The staff greeted us immediately after entering and we very pleasant to speak with. They reminded us of our noted restrictions on our reservation and seated us immediately.
We sat directly across from the Chefs kitchen so we got an actual grill to table experience.
The prep area was cleaned their Su-Chef was pleasant as well when bringing the food to our table.
With the first bite our waiter was there asking how was it and if we needed anything.
The food and drink was amazing to say the least and we will dine there more often!

Liora was understaffed and the food came out at random times. The staff didn’t seem to know where to take the food. Other than the service, the food was delicious. They gave us a free mac and cheese for our caesar salad being late. The restaurant is gorgeous on the inside and the bathrooms were clean

The menu at Liora is inventive with vegan classics like mac and cheez and new takes like bbq beets. They also have the best vegan cheese plate I've had. Great to have a new vegan dining option!

I went with a good friend and she is not plant-based. She took her first bite, and when she did I said "I wish I could've gotten a picture of your reaction!" It was obvious it was so good. And the MAC & CHEESE!!!!! I got some to go, as well! (: Will be back for brunch!

My husband learned of Liora while looking for out of town vegan restaurants. I have one upscale vegan restaurant in my home time. The rest are too casual. Liora had it all. Impeccable service, lovely ambiance, and delicious and imaginative food. Excellent. Cannot wait to try Double Zero when I am back in the area.

My girlfriend and I were really excited to try Liora during Vegan Restaurant Week. Unfortunately, she is allergic to pumpkin seeds which are an ingredient in the Barbacoa Tacos which we had as our appetizer, and she became very sick during the meal. Other than that, we had the BBQ Beets, Mac and Cheese, and Kimchi Slaw -the mac and cheese was pretty good, but my girlfriend did not like the way the beets were spiced. We also had the Smoky Maitake Mushroom, Cheesy Grits, and Shitake Bacon Braised Greens - Was ok, some of the greens had not been removed from the stalks which was offputting. I didn't like the seasoning that much.

Overall, I would say the food was so-so and the prices were kind of high, considering that the food is all plant-based.

Food great service abysmal. Took 20 minutes before someone came over to even offer us water. Almost an hour for starters, another hour to get main. Our dirty dishes sat for an hour while we were waiting meanwhile I look around and see service staff chatting with each other and other customers. Has potential if there are major improvements with the service.

Waitress was very rude, service was very slow (despite the restaurant not being very busy), and the food was uninspired with many vegetables undercooked. Only the drinks were good. Have eaten at much better vegan restaurants.

Beautiful space, approachable menu, delicious food. The price point is lower than anyone would guess by looking at the restaurant itself or how the dishes are presented! Absolutely would recommend to vegans and meat-eaters alike.

I went to Liora for my birthday and it was amazing! The raw lasagna and cheesecake were my favorites! Even my non-vegan friends loved it too. The atmosphere is relaxing and loved how much light pours into the restaurant windows!

Don’t go in with any expectations. It’s vegan food made with ingredients outside of tofu or other soy products. It’s fine dining so they serve small portions of everything but they’re very filling. My only let down was the lack of service I initially received after arriving. No one served me for 20 minutes after I sat down. Not even a drink order and it made me feel embarrassed for dining alone. No they weren’t busy or short staffed.

We have been to a few other Matthew Kenney restaurants and this one did not disappoint. AND, we are so fortunate to have one now so close to us in Baltimore! Expect the best, you won't be disappointed. Staff is also very sensitive to allergy concerns.

Decor and food styling were great! Loved the drinks too. The food was good and I'm not a vegan so I'm sure folks with that diet would LOVE this place. The vegan crab cakes were pretty good but I my taste buds always expect the actual name versus what its really made of. Each bite I had to keep telling myself this isn't actually crab :) But nonetheless, I would end them again.

Great to have high quality vegan in the neighborhood. The service was friendly although there were long waits for courses. Items delivered at different times. The tables are a little close for comfort in this era of the delta variant. There were empty tables, yet they put people right next to each other. Would have been better to spread.
I am sure with time (they are new) and more staff trained up, it will become a go to place for a higher end vegan meal. Loved the mushroom dish, a little soso on the desserts.
