The food was good vegan food, but if seasoned better, it would be great food and not just good vegan food.
Regarding the ambiance, it would be nice if the plants that separate bar verde and the italian/pizza place could be trimmed so that I don't have to move the table out to avoid getting hit by the leaves of the plants.
Overall, it was great and I would go back again.

I have been to Plant City many times but this was my first experience at Bar Verde. Sadly, I was not impressed at all. The waitstaff barely recognized us. We had a 4:15 reservation, ordered cocktails and were still waiting for them at 5:15. The food was also not great. We only liked 1 out of four items that we offered. I would definitely go back to Plant City but not Bar Verde.

My husband & I spent the past weekend in Providence. While we were there we visited Plant City for dinner on Saturday night, then breakfast & brunch on Sunday. The food was amazing & the staff was really nice. It would have been helpful to have a couple of greeters at the entrance to help direct people & provide information on the restaurants.

The food was delicious but the seating was very crowded - the woman at the table behind me and I kept bumping each other with our chairs and I had a plant in my face because we were close close to big plants.

We went for our anniversary, after reading a friend’s review, and wanting to try something different. Everything about this place is fabulous. We are not vegans, or even vegetarians, and we loved this food. The vegan nachos were so good, I’d go back just to experience them again. Everything had so much flavor! Service was top notch, we really enjoyed our time there, and will definitely return. We have concert in PVD in a few weeks and are already planning to return here for dinner beforehand. So glad we found this place.

The food and drinks were fantastic, however the service was very very slow. We were there for at least 2 hours, it took far too long for our appetizers and drinks to get to the table.Felt like we hardly saw our waiter at all despite the restaurant not being super busy. Seemed like there was plenty of staff but you never know. Its not something that would stop me from coming back.

This is a must go to venue for any foodie whether they are a vegetarian or not. Our meal was outstanding, we had one person who did not like vegetables and one very sceptical grandmother. Everyone raved about the food and couldn’t wait to come back again.

Drinks were great, food choices were awesome, and the staff was incredibly knowledgeable. Though I have been a very active athlete and healthy eater for the last 24 years, I recently switched to a plant-based diet. Our waitress was really helpful and insightful. The ambiance was lively, so although I said the noise was moderate, it was due to how busy the restaurant was, which is a good thing. I highly recommend this spot as a go-to in Providence!

We got there a little early and ended up sitting at the bar to wait. The padded bar stools ended up seeming much more comfortable than the hard wood table seats we were waiting for so we stayed at the bar and ate there - no complaints! Great food, great drinks and friendly fast service!

Cool vibe and delicious food. I’m not a vegetarian and was so surprised how great the food was. Highly recommend to those with an open mind. Food great; service great; ambiance great. Parking could be better but it was fine as it was a weekday.

I’d go back for a drink and appetizer, but our dinner were only fair. Same ingredients in a variety of shapes. Vegan but not especially healthy.

First time here, it was good however, expectations were high based on things I’d heard. Food was ok, but surprised at the limited menu choices.
I will have to try again, but this visit wasn’t outstanding. It was good, just not outstanding.

“This is delicious. All restaurants could make food this good but they choose not to” quote from my extremely discerning, carnivore, former chef husband. Quesadilla was off the charts delicious and I’m drooling thinking about the truffle mushroom pizza. Drinks were tasty and the service at the bar was great. Awesome night.

Noise level is a bit too much if you actually want to have a conversation with your dining partner. The food arrives erratically -the shared salad arrive two minutes after ordering -before drinks-and then there was a very long wait for the entree.

Food and service were fantastic! Jonas was our waiter and he was nothing short of excellent. He was friendly, attentive and very funny! Spicy margarita was great, just the right amount of spine. The nachos with butternut squash queso were ridiculously good. You would never know that it was a plant based queso. I had the mushroom quesadilla with guacamole. The mushrooms were cooked perfect and the guacamole was very good. I couldn’t even finish it! We were there for a birthday so we ordered the snickers cheesecake and the churros. Since I was full, I tried a bit of the cheesecake and it was very good. It had the consistency of a cashew cheese based food. Now the churros. These were the BEST churros I have ever had! These are one of my favorite desserts and I have tried them everywhere but Plant City definitely nailed this recipe! We will definitely be back!

The vision of the chef in creating wonderful tasting and delicious meals is terrific. Plant City is a great place to go for any occasion...because you are eating well and giving your health a big boost. All this and doing good for the planet by decreasing greenhouse gases caused by raising animals.

I was pleasantly surprised when I walked into the building. I wasn't sure what to expect and it exceeded my preconceived notion of what it might look and feel like. Great ambiance and design. Service a 10. Love the concept and glad that I live 2 blocks away. Will frequent this established often!

We really enjoyed our meals. Tacos (we had all four types) and apps (plantains and chips/guac) were a hit, strong beer selection. Only negative was the mole sauce. Way too much chocolate and lacking in spices and heat. It tasted like hot fudge better suited for ice cream.

This is more of a reflection on open table but we got there and they had no record of our reservation but the hostess sat us immediately without an issue. The food was delicious and our server was great

Bar Verde was fabulous our waiter Max was excellent and really had great knowledge of the food he was serving it was my daughter’s 28th Birthday and he went above and beyond to make it a great day for all of us. Thank you for taking great care in the preparation and serving of food. Nice to have a place that is as passionate about food and quality as we are. Will definitely be visiting again and often. Thanks again

My meal and our server were both very good. The food was delicious and fresh, although servings are not overly generous.

My biggest disappointment was with the reservation and hostess. My confirmed reservation through open table was not on record with the hostess. No biggie, but the hostess never acknowledged me with eye contact or a warm greeting. She instead stayed focused on the iPad and then abruptly led me to a table without saying much of anything, and again, with no eye contact whatsoever.

Good food just a glitch with online reservations so we had to sit at the bar. Food was excellent but loud and people standing behind us so could have been better with the table but overall very good.

This was my 3rd time at plant city and i was extremely disappointed this most recent visit. The food took 1h10min to arrive, our server did not apologize for the long wait, and the food was cold when we received it. Our server was not at all attentive. I was extremely disappointed, and will not be back any time soon.
