The best vegan meal we have had in LA. We were travelling to LA and picked PF&W for an intimate dinner. We had the Chef's Tasting option and it was amazing. A celebration of vegetables that was vibrant, healthy, original and oh so tasty.

Food was good, not great but rapaciously over priced for the quality. Service was friendly and well intentioned but extremely clueless. The wine pairings for the prix fixe Thanksgiving dinner were mediocre at best.

Amazing food. I was pleasantly surprised with the level of creativity in each dish. The Mitake Mushrooms were incredibly savory and the main portions were bigger than I thought they would be. The ambiance was warm and welcoming, and I appreciated how attentive the servers were. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to experiment with vegan food, and highly recommend to everyone for a cute date night.

This was my second time here. The first time I was blown away by the experience: the food, the service, it was all excellent. But this time, something went wrong with our order and apparently the ticket was lost and we sat there for a VERY long time before this mistake was realized. And then we sat for a long time waiting for our food. I was hoping an overture might be made to apologize but...nothing. And it's NOT an inexpensive restaurant. Honestly, kind of left me feeling hollow and wondering if I would return.

Quite a letdown. I expected more from a Matthew Kenny restaurant. The kabocha squash was dry. My husband ate his salad thinking it had no dressing on it, only to find it pooled at the bottom. Trendy or silly? Let’s just say we didn’t know how to eat the salad to get the experience of a dressed salad. My golden milk was chalky. Did they use turmeric powder instead of smooth, fresh pressed turmeric juice? I won’t be going again. Oh, and my experience as a healthy eater? I’ve been a raw foodist/raw food enthusiast for nearly ten years.

I love a romantic spot for Vegans. So many options to choose from for foodies. It seems that a person who ate meat wouldn't miss it. They aren't strick on dress. We were dressed like a date night while the table near us had sweat shirts and jean shorts.
We will be back often.

Our server wasn’t the best, we were left waiting for long periods of time that other servers came over to us. Tables close together, and the other couple had a loud volume. Noise came from next door. Place looks empty from the front but a very beautiful out side area

I went to Plant Food + Wine for a very special occasion, to ask my girlfriend to marry me. My girlfriend has been Vegan for 15 years, and has always stated how she wanted to go to this particular locale. The food was off the chain, and the wine was outstanding. I am particularly thankful and grateful for the incredible customer service. The team went above and beyond to make our engagement special, by taking pictures and video, and providing champagne and desert. We were blown away by the service, by the food, and by the ambiance. Thanks so much; we will be back!

As a graduate of the Mathew Kennedy plant lab courses I knew what to expect and was not dissappointed. My only comment , the portions in the latter courses of the tasting menu were slightly too large ... maybe I just need to eat more !... sublime though and magical wine pairings

Been wanting to come to Plant Food & Wine for years now, and it did NOT disappoint. All of the food was outstanding, the service was wonderful, and all of the waiter's recommendations were incredible, so if you're not sure what to get, ask! He recommended things we weren't thinking of ordering that turned out to be incredible. Definitely order the Coconut Cream Pie - it's raw and totally incredible. You'll be swooning for each bite!
