We had a great Pre-Public Theater show meal here. There are a number of nice vegan restaurants on the lower east side - Quintessence is among them. It’s been around for a long time and it still delivers. It would be great if they had a liquor license though!
Food is fantastic. They just took a long time to serve, probably understaffed.
I found this restaurant on open table and went because it was one of the few vegetarian places on the list. I was surprised at how small the space was (about 12 chairs) and that there was only 1 other person there at 7pm. But the hostess was super friendly and accommodating. The food was artistically presented and the flavors were delightful. It’s also BYOB. There are wine stores within a block of the restaurant. I would go back next time I’m in Manhattan.
A nice restaurant to go to if your health conscious, but the meals tend to be quite expensive for the amount that you receive. Besides that, nice atmosphere & service, and tasty food.
The place has amazing vegan options. Really liked the food. The menu online is more elaborate than whats available in the restaurant.
Overall, a nice East Village spot!!
Exceeded expectations! Very charming ambiance and GREAT food!! Definitely going to be one of our favorites to come back to.
Loved the food and service!
Amazing vegetarian food. Really tasty and delicious.
My first vegan raw food restaurant experience, being actually a meat eater... I am so positively surprised how much I liked it- great tacos, very good seaweed salad and the matcha cheesecake and pumpkin pie were outstanding!
Berg good vegan food.
Every dish I tried was tasty. Attentive service. Healthy
My girlfriend eats cooked food and I just started eating raw, so I wanted a place that worked for both.
We started with coconuts waters (from a real coconut), followed by the "fofu" wrap, nachos, burger and pizza. ALL OF IT WAS RAW AND AMAZING!!!!! My girlfriend loved every dish.
We finished off with a banana coconut pie (so dank).
Will be back here every week.
🙌🙌🙌 Thanks Quintessence 🙌🙌🙌
