Had a wonderful birthday dinner at planta on Bay. St. The service was incredible and the food was fantastic. My wife and i are both healthy vegans so we had plenty of options to choose from. If you prefer comfort food they also have plenty of plant based options. The music was a little loud so it was a bit difficult to hear each other but i would definitely recommend this place.

Some dishes showed creativity but over-all value not there. Cauliflower in one dish was off

Our experience at Planta, a restaurant we normally enjoy, was very disappointing this time. While the food was excellent as always, the service was very unprofessional and choppy! In total during a 75 minute visit, we had three or four different servers and there was no coordination.
Immediately upon arrival, we placed our wine order, and 10 minutes later - even though the wine hadn’t arrived we placed our food order too. We reminded the server about the wine order and she seemed surprised, said she’d look into it and wandered off in another direction - not to the bar.
The food arrived 15 minutes later and I reminded the different server that we still hadn’t had our wine - which we’d hoped to enjoy for 15 minutes before eating. She said she’d look into it. I also spoke to the person at the front desk, who said it was coming, but did nothing.
In the end, the wine arrived a good seven minutes AFTER the food had arrived (about half an hour after we’d placed the order) - which is totally unacceptable. When another different server brought it, he casually declared: “Sorry ‘bout that guys!” - totally unprofessional and inappropriate given that we were a grandmother, a mother and a quiet, 5-month old sleeping baby - not guys!
As well, the ambience is not up to the usual standard because the building is under renovation. The large picture window is closed up with unpainted or decorated wallboard, so it is dark and unattractive and looks like a construction site, but apparently they I plan to put plants in front of it. They should have done that before declaring themselves open! How much effort does it take to put in a few potted plants?
In all, the visit was okay - because the food was wonderful, but the hopelessly slow and uncoordinated service by pleasant but totally unprofessional and aimlessly distracted servers, really detracted from the overall experience.

Great food as always. My meat-eating colleague enjoyed the eggplant lasagna. I *really* enjoyed the crab cakes. I love good crab cakes with actual crab, and these were equally tasty with great texture. Wine list is so so, my Chianti was a bit boring. Very friendly service, left us alone to talk. All in all a very satisfying meal.

Very much enjoyed the food. Unfortunately the service was extremely slow. They credited us back for the appetizers without us asking, but we’re completely unsure as to why the service was so slow. It was mentioned that our table was specifically slow but no reason as to why was offered.

The food was great but the service was extremely slow. The server was inattentive and the table seated next to us whom arrived after us were served their food before us. The manager seemed to notice and gave us a free dessert. Overall the poor service from our server would keep me from going there again.

A frequent guest at Planta. Have noticed the music gets turned up a bit too loud after a certain hour, and really preferred the original carrot tartar. The new one is missing some of the creaminess of the original (although the marinated mushroom of the new version is lovely).

I sound like a broken record.
How can you make a plant based menu taste so exceptional.
Please keep it up.
If you haven’t gone don’t miss it. Even if you live at Morton’s you have to try Planta.

Good but something has changed with desserts. They're not as delicious as they were a few months ago. Did the pastry chef leave? If so, go back to the original recipe for the brownie...it was MUCH better before.

It’s amazing how they can take boring vegetables and turn them into a culinary experience.
I wish restaurants like Planta were around decades ago. I would have been eating more plant based foods then.
