Planta was opened with the purpose of creating delicious food that promotes environmental sustainability. Under Chef David Lee, Planta aimed at filling a void in the market of upscale, full service, plant-based dining options. The restaurant's vision is to celebrate innovative cuisine in a beautiful environment without the use of any animal products. There’s more to responsible plant-based eating than just taking animals off the plate and our commitment to using high-quality products from ethical suppliers provides the foundation for our chefs to be proud of the food they serve.

Sat at the front of the restaurant where there is far less atmosphere. Next time will request table in the back which is more buzzy.

The look of the restaurant is lovely. The banquette is comfy and the washroom is a thumbs up ... spacious, clean and smells great. Our server was fantastic. She put together a selection for the table ( She did not over order and in fact we ordered two extra dishes!) and the kitchen was super accommodating re a guest’s no sodium requirement. They out together two wonderful dishes that were off menu. The food was excellent .. best vegan in the city. Only fault is that it was difficult to hear each other due to acoustics (music not loud). Will be returning.

We were at Planta Queen for Mother’s Day dinner. The food was fantastic and we liked the ambiance too. My sister, who is vegan, loved all the options, and my mom and I also enjoyed every dish, especially the Bang Bang Broccoli. Our server was great, but the hosts at the front were not very friendly. The food seemed fairly expensive for the portion sizes, but we paid ~$40 plus drinks per person, which is fair. We would come back for dinner again based on how good the food was.

Food was great and tasted really good too! Love that the food is asian inspired, with their own unique twists to it. Also very interesting trying vegan sushi - tasted delicious! However, the portion sizes are way too small for what you pay for. For 3 people we ordered 2 small plates, 1 rainbow roll, 2 dishes from the wok section and 1 noodle dish. We were still hungry so ordered the pineapple fried rice, however we def could've eaten more. Overall price isn't too bad, but maybe eat a snack before heading here. Cocktails are amazing and decor is very nice, however too loud. You are literally shouting to chat. Will come back again with just 1 other person as we can probably eat more and get full that way.

When the restaurant was not even 25% full and my reservation was made a month ago, party of theee is being cramped into a small table for two. When I mentioned to the hostess, she just shrugged 🤷🏻‍♀️ her shoulders and said that’s what they do on a busy night. The attitude kinda ruined my Sunday morning brunch mood before even ordering food. When we left, the restaurant was about 70%full at most. Photos are in priority from like to dislike. The first two dishes (pizza and fried broccoli ) I would recommend, delicious! The 3rd and 4th are ok. The pan fried dumplings are four for like $12-14. The sticky rice in lotus leaf is really no good (not even getting the basic skills and flavour right) . The tea has no flavour because the leaves to water ratio is wayyy too low. Conclusion: delicious western dishes (similar to Planta Yorkville) but Asian dim sum dishes need improvement. And the hostess was so annoying. Server is good though.

Very busy, service still working out how to accommodate. Took quite a while to get seated for our reservation and quite a few service falters, though everybody was very kind and friendly.

Food was pretty interesting, but sparsely seasoned.

Good atmosphere, enjoyed the boisterous scene.

Food was great. Ordered the black bean dumplings, broccoli, Shanghai noodles and eggplant. Flavours were great but needed rice to balance it out. Waitress told us i was jasmine rice but what came as a short grain. Definitely not worth the $6. The service was a bit off. Not sure if it were too busy for her to manage. But overall good food.

Excited to try this new restaurant as we luv Planta in Yorkville.

Service was polite and informative however I had to flag down other members of the service team to reorder foods.

We shared the seaweed app which was delicious. In terms of my pizza I’m not sure where the problem lay, service or kitchen as they couldn’t get my pizza right. Asked for NO scallions on my pizza and it arrived with scallions neatly arranged under the watermelon. It’s only after my first bite did I discover this. So my guest ate on her own while I waited for a redo.

I was still peckish so I ordered one of the rolls which was delicious.

All in all a so so experience for a hefty price.

Service was great and our server checked in a few times.

The table behind us was a larger party and were extremely loud. The restaurant ambience outside of this noisy table was good.

The seating host seemed a bit disorganized. We had to wait for a while for our table to ready, meanwhile we could see a lot of empty tables in the dining room.

Also, it was uncomfortably cold with the front door opening and closing. It made it difficult to enjoy the experience.

We left without eating. The noise level was so bad that we had to yell into each other’s ear to be heard. There was no way we were going to dine in that cacophanous milieu. We like to converse as we eat which would have been impossible.
