Our server Julia was very knowledgeable with the menu and our food restrictions. She was also able to recommend us a wine that was delicious and paired well with our food. The food was presented well and flavours were compatible making it taste good. We had the cauliflower tots, watermelon poke, and I enjoyed the lettuce wraps.

4/5 for service because our table was not ready when we arrived despite having a reservation. Otherwise, everything was great, especially the food.

I honestly am quite surprised with how good this all way. Was having dinner with 3 “flexitarian”s so did not have the highest of hopes, but left quite happy. Dishes were yummy and inventive; not too interested in the vegan “cheeses” but if that’s what your into, you might dig it! Portions were a bit on the precious side, especially when taking pricing into the equation, but friendly service and beautiful room made up for it. A definite recco for plant-based diners.

Our server was very nice and professional but the veggie burger is way too small for the price. It seems they wanted to get me full of fries and not with the burger..I finished it in four bites. I honestly was disappointed with the food only

Food was good, service was very slow to start. Waited 20 min to get our drinks !!! Request a table not under a speaker as it can be very loud.

Beautiful decor and busy atmosphere, but the food is often a miss. Planta was one of my favourite restaurants for several years, but has been quite disappointing recently. Their portions are getting smaller and smaller, to the point where dishes are ridiculously overpriced. Eg. Pizzas are smaller and with less toppings. Brunch today was a big disappointment. An old favourite (pancakes) removed from the menu. Cinnamon bun tasted like dry stale old bread drizzled in maple syrup. Avocado toast now one instead of two pieces, with the toast so hard it cut up my mouth. With so many great new vegan (and vegan friendly) restaurants in the city, Planta should not be at the top of your list.

I have eaten at Planta many times and as a meat eater ive always been blown away by the food which has always been outstanding with a whack of flavour. Had the mushroom pasta which was disappointingly bland. Only bad dish I’ve had there. Chocolate terrarium is still the best dessert in the city.

Outstanding food and service. The cuisine is extremely innovative and shows what is possible in creating delicious, sophisticated vegetarian and vegan dishes. Congratulations to the entire team, in the kitchen and on the floor. The service was brisk, attentive and up to the quality of the food. And the wine list is concise but offers excellent choice. While I am not a great fan of 'natural' wines, their selections in this vein were sound.

Amazing service. Outstanding food. They need to hurry the renovation along though. One half looks amazing the other half is construction. Changed seats with my wife so she had a good view of the half of the restaurant not under renovation. Severs will guide you though the menu whether you are truly vegan or just trying vegan out for the first time. We will be back for sure

Went on Valentine's Day and everything was more than I expected. Since we went on a holiday it was a fixed menu but it had a gluten free alternative which was great. Our waitress was great, the food was phenomenal, and the atmosphere was enjoyable. The music may have been a bit loud considering the fact that it was Valentine's day and we were there to sit down, talk and enjoy each other's company, but all in all a great experience

I didn't know that planta had a fixed menu for valentine. I would say that the majority of the items did not taste good and I know planta has better tasting items on their menu. Overall it was very disappointing for an almost $200 meal.

The food was amazing. The service was okay - I was taking my friend out for their birthday and had left that in the notes and selected birthday as the occasion. When I arrived at the restaurant the host confirmed it and that they would bring out a slice of birthday cake for my friend. However, it was not communicated to our server, as she did not follow through. I did not want to ask in front of my friend for it as it would be awkward and I wanted it to be more of a surprise. Then another table got their birthday cake with sparklers and it just made me look bad. Food is great, best plant based restaurant out there, just service needs a little work.

Always love coming back to this place. Great menu - I think I've now tried everything on the menu! Service is great, very friendly vibe and crowd. DJ is a nice touch. Later evening is quite lively. A little expensive for the selection - but the whole package is worth it! Decent wine selection, nice cocktails. Great for a date. Can't wait to go back!

Not a vegetarian, but always have a pleasant experience at Planta. The food is surprisingly filling and you don't get the overly full feeling after many other meals. I attribute that to unique ingredient pairings and great sharing appetizers.

Disappointed with my first experience at Planta. Our reservation was at 7:30pm but we didn’t get a table until closer to 8pm. Our group was understanding because it was a Friday night. Our main issue was the service...very slow! It took over 30 minutes to order food, another 40 for the food to come out and then 30 minutes to waive the server down to get our bill- the restaurant was pretty quiet towards the end so not sure what the issue was. Food was a hit and miss at our table. Main dishes were mediocre, dessert was good.

Everything was great! The only thing I didn’t like is that even though I made a reservation, our table wasn’t ready when we came in. Because we were in a rush to get to an event nearby, we had to sit in the lounge which wasn’t as comfortable and conducive to conversation between 2 people as a table would have been.

The pizza crust was great and I didn't mind the lack of real cheese but it was bland. The spring rolls were not crispy although the accomanying sauce was good. The chatcuerie board was miniscule and definitely not worth the price. The staff and service were great.
