    My friend and I enjoyed our lunch visit. Lovely decor and nice location on the marina. We didn’t order a lot of food but it was good. I would try the sushi on my next visit. I think it would be good to have more menu items

    Planta Cocina: A Maki Monday Delight Marina del Rey's Planta Cocina never fails to impress. Stepping through the doorway on a recent Monday evening, I was greeted with a warm smile from the hostess, who whisked me to my favorite booth (number 14, a haven of plush comfort within the beautifully decorated space). The restaurant itself is a visual treat – thoughtfully designed and boasting a spacious ambiance that puts diners at ease. Ah, Maki Monday! This delightful weekly special offers endless maki indulgence for a fixed price. At $27, it's a steal for those with an adventurous palate (or a bottomless appetite!). The choices were a symphony of vibrant flavors. The "Sunset Roll," a radiant combination of sweet potato, jicama, pistachio, and Meyer lemon, was a burst of sunshine on the plate. The "Torched and Pressed" roll, with its heart of avocado and a decadent miso truffle glaze, was pure umami magic. But the undisputed star of the show, and the reason for my seven (yes, seven!) orders, was the "Dragon Roll." This fiery masterpiece, a fusion of tempura vegetables, creamy avocado, and a spicy unagi sauce, lived up to its name. Each bite was a thrilling dance on the tongue, a testament to Planta Cocina's culinary artistry. However, the true magic of the evening wasn't just on the plate. My server, Ava W., was an absolute gem. A master of her craft, she possessed a remarkable ability to anticipate my needs without hovering. Unlike some servers who become a constant presence, interrupting conversations, Ava possessed a hawk-like awareness, appearing at just the right moment with precisely what I needed – often before I even knew I needed it! Her intuitive service and genuine warmth elevated the entire dining experience. Planta Cocina, with its delectable maki creations and impeccable service by Ava W., remains a top contender in Marina del Rey's culinary scene. Whether you're a seasoned vegan or simply curious, Maki Monday is the perfect. J Marshall Schoonover

    A Vegan Oasis in Marina del Rey: A Review of PLANTA Cocina Marina del Rey, CA - Stepping into PLANTA Cocina on a recent Monday evening felt like entering a vibrant sanctuary. Greeted by a warm & professional welcome, I was immediately at ease. As a longtime resident of Marina del Rey (23 years!), I'd curiously passed by this recently opened gem (a few weeks old) on my Trader Joe's runs, but this time, thanks to a recommendation from my commercial real estate students, I decided to explore its fully vegan offerings. Maki Monday Magic: Their "Maki Monday" special caught my eye – unlimited Maki rolls for $27 starting at 5 pm! What a deal! Following my students' enthusiastic endorsement, I embarked on a delicious journey through their maki selection. The Dragon Roll, a delightful combination of flavors and textures, was the clear winner, though the Sunset Roll and the Torched Pressed Rolls offered their own unique appeal. Each roll was beautifully presented, a feast for the eyes as much as the palate. (Confession: I may have indulged in six glorious pieces!) Service with a Smile: My server, Katie R., deserves special recognition. Her friendly and professional demeanor, combined with her attentiveness (those water refills!), embodied the "customer-centric" approach that makes a dining experience truly memorable. She's an asset to PLANTA Cocina! A Convenient and Rewarding Experience: Having made my reservation through the ever-reliable OpenTable, I settled my bill using the inKind app – another fantastic recommendation for a seamless & rewarding payment experience. A Plant-Based Paradise: As a vegan since 1993, I deeply appreciate PLANTA Cocina's commitment to a 100% plant-based menu. It's refreshing to have a restaurant that caters so effortlessly to this dietary choice, & with such culinary flair. A Must-Try for Vegans and Adventurous Eaters Alike: Whether you're a seasoned vegan or simply curious about plant-based cuisine, PLANTA Cocina is a must-try!

    Great food and beautiful interior! The best plant based place I have ever tried. The flavors are amazing and they have something for everyone. Def a must try. Service was good and attentive. The food is very creative and plated beautifully. And again the interior design is worth a visit all on its own.

    The food was delicious but the service was lackluster. The restaurant seemed to be out of a bunch of things on their brunch menu that are pretty indicative of brunch. We were only made aware they were out of them after we realized they never showed up and questioned the arrival?

    My third visit. Beautiful room and location. Some dishes are exquisite (eggplant unagi). Menu items are increasingly fried. Staff were ill informed and indifferent to my questions about a change to the loyalty program. Seems to be more “corporate”

    Started off a little rocky with the hostesses. Server and manager were awesome and made up for the hostesses lack of friendliness. We ordered a lot and enjoyed everything. Crispy Mushroom Hand Roll 💕 Caesar Cups Dragon Roll Bang Bang Brocolli Udon Noodles 💕 Dulce Leché Cake 💕 Even the wine was delicious. Hearts next to our favorites.

    We booked online with OpenTable but our table was not ready when we arrived. The front desk girls were lovely. Quite frankly, they should have offered us a drink in the house with having to wait 20 mins for a table that was already booked. There were only four of us at lunch Food was good. Prices are high for what is a bunch of carbs and veg. Lovely presentation. The chopped salad was definitely not worth the price. No dressing and hardly Anything there - The noodles were fabulous. The drinks again were very expensive. Our server was polite but completely overworked so it was hard to get her attention when we needed something We would go back for happy hour

    Not my first visit, and definately not my last. Restaurant, food, service, and ambiance is always excellent. Love the new items they showcase during different months. Have yet to try everything on the menu, but so far everything I've had has been excellent. Planta is a staple restaurant for my husband and I. And it makes it even better that its less than 5mins from our house.

    Food is great but service is absent and inattentive. Expect to only see your waiter for initial order. Expect no employees to remove empty plates no longer how much they fill up the table. No one here wants to do the job of clearing plates. Expect to do acrobatics to wave servers if you want to order another drink. Food is great but the experience is ruined by lack of care and poor service.

    The plant-based food was amazing. I’m not vegetarian but I took my vegetarian daughter and we both enjoyed everything. We ordered the bang bang broccoli, crispy rice, crab tostadas, and udon noodles. I recommend them all and the noodles were my favorite. Lastly, we got the coconut cake for dessert and it was delicious! Oh, the interior decor and ambiance is beautiful.

    Service is the most important factor for me when dining in on top of the great food and drinks. Server was not attentive and it was a very slow night with only a few tables. I still love the place and will be going back but hopefully they improve their service.

    I'd seen a complimentary article w/ a photo in a magazine about the restaurant. It deserves the compliments. We came for lunch on a very rainy morning. But the sun came out brilliantly and it was a beautiful place to be. We ate indoors but had a wonderful view of the water and the boats. The waitstaff was very helpful with our order and even found me a BandAid when I needed one. I'd read reviews and followed the advice on ordering. We were very happy with our food and the atmosphere. We'll definitely come back and recommend it to our friends. It's a find.

    We are not Vegan or Vegetarian but definitely adventurous with food and flavors and wanted a new experience for ourselves and guests visiting . The patio is gorgeous overlooking the Marina and the food is super tasty. The restaurant is beautiful inside too and cool looking bar. All four of us loved the flavors of everything we tried (Bang bang broccoli, croquettes, Guacamole, Queso dip, udon truffle noodle dish, quesadilla) My husband and I will return since we are local and happy to have this addition to the neighborhood.

    Love Planta! Beautiful restaurant for our yoga teacher appreciation lunch. My only comments is that we were seated by a window and some of us were sweltering in the sun. Shades would make the spot more comfortable.
