If you’re looking to try a vegan restaurant with good food and great ambiance this restaurant is it. On Friday night they had a DJ playing some cool house music.

Third time visiting. Seems like the quality of food and service has slipped. Not sure I’d visit again.

Waited about 5 mins to be seated despite the fact that I had a reservation. They decided to seat the girl who arrived after me meanwhile no one even acknowledged me even though there were three people at the hostess stand.

Service was quite slow despite the fact the restaurant wasn’t terribly busy. For example, waited at least 15 mins between when the bill arrived and when they came around with the msging. Burger arrived prior to the antipasto plate which even the waiter acknowledged was odd.

Waiters were friendly and pleasant when present.

Love the food but the music and noise levels have transformed the space from a beautiful dining experience where people can connect over nourishing delicious food to an impersonal club like atmosphere that creates disconnection instead. We literally had 4 members of our party have to leave early because of the noise. Sadly, we won’t be returning until the ambience allows for connection over food.

We love the food! The experience is always fantastic...Thursday, 2:30 pm reservation, lunch for two, for a birthday treat...The server put two delicious truffles on a plate with a candle, instead of having a whole dessert( we are both trying to get back our summer weight)-perfect...Due to all the construction outside, it felt like the restaurant was a bit empty for the 2:30 pm sitting...It was ok, cause noise level was down, but I do hope construction will end soon-it felt a bit empty...I do always think a bit about the price-might be nice to have some special set meal choices, that were more affordable...I'd be there every day if I could afford it!

Food was fantastic, specials were exciting. Service was very enthusiastic but kinda forgot about us towards the end (we needed more water). Also bathrooms are in need of a facelift, look super run down for the calibre of place.

Great food in a contemporary setting. Service young and cheerful but not overly professional. Tables very close to each other and dining room a bit too dark for our taste.

Went for lunch, very good experience. The juices were refreshing. The mushroom lettuce wraps were little greasy but delicious. Split the Thai salad, I’m still dreaming about it

The appetizers were quite good, but my salad was not at all good. Billed as a Thai salad, it had an odd fishy taste that was very off-putting.

The food is all right, not necessarily amazing. Though it does have some aspects of Vegan cooking and fresh herbs, no way is it healthy. They overhype the ingrown herbs. Rest of the food is normal. Expected better from this restaurant.

Is it worth the money? For appetizers, definitely not! You get 4 bites of food for $16! For entrees, I think it was quite ok...

Service was quite slow, as we waited 40 mins after we arrived to get a drink (they were busy).

Service was excellent. Food was good. We were jammed into a table which felt like we were in the way of everyone. It was very overcrowded. Great to see it’s so popular but awkward for the customer.

They accommodated for my celiac needs carefully. I did not have a reaction afterward. The food was tasty and they brought us a complimentary dessert for my birthday. Attentive waitstaff and came around with water as we needed. Lattes were very inventive - though on the small side for the price of a BBT. Unfortunately was sat at the entrance and watched people wait for their table. Otherwise, a very nice experience! Would visit again.

Every time we come to Planta I am amazed how good the food is and how bad the service is. Had to wait for a waitress to come for several minutes until I actually waved at her. We ordered wine, appetizers and main dishes for four people. They brought appetizers but didn’t bring wine. I had to wave again. Another waitress brought wine and said our waitress was busy with other tables. They then brought mains and mixed up who ordered what. A very disappointing customer service experience every time!

I had put on open table that it was my friends birthday so I thought they would have done spending special but they didn’t.The sever also mixed up our meal so we had to wait a very long time for the main and they never apologized. We never even saw the same server twice there were so many different people attending to the table which felt not personal at all. The food was delicious but for the price, the portions sizes are too small and not filling. (and that’s coming from a small woman)This was my fourth time at planta and as usual I spent a lot of money and left hungry.

I would recommend Planta to a vegan or vegetarian friend. Otherwise, the dishes tasted too similar for my liking. The service was excellent with very accommodating and helpful staff. It was quite expensive for the meal and I didn’t think it was good value for a regular evening out. Nice to try for something different.
