    Beautiful presentation, clean and tasty food. A little too pricey to come back regularly, but overall will be back when menu changes to taste again for a date night. Lighting was very bright for dining, I would suggest dimming the light and adding some water features to add to the ambiance.

    Great experience overall. Each entree came with some storytelling about this dish and it’s benefits. There were a lot of flies in our dining room. Something to consider for staff to not use flowers that attracts them.

    We come by to try the new dishes they are definitely more shiny and some of them are more tasty. The new dishes are more filling and appear to have maintained the healthy and weight losing attributes However, maybe they got a little bit carried away, and the time lapsed between some dishes are longer than expected.

    This restaurant is one of a kind. OC is quite limited on vegan food but ToB is more than just innovative Chinese-French vegan food, it's a peaceful setting where you can remove yourself from the daily stress in life and enjoy a nice meal. We take all of our friends here because we want to open up their minds to the quality & flavors that vegan food can have. The staff is extremely attentive and friendly and we love the stories paired with each plate. The serene music, the large space, and the art make ToB a very unique experience. Highly recommend coming here with family & friends to bond over great food.

    The food was poorly prepared and did not have great flavor and the wait staff had dirty fingernails while serving us. The place was not neat and lacked ambiance. Haphazard.

    Taste of BeautyResponded on June 24, 2022Sorry to hear likey the first-time outright deploration of our dishes. Since what is wrong was not pinpointed, we would not know how to improve our dishes. However, we have been very emphasizing health and hygiene for our environment and have arranged thorough deep cleaning+sanitizing weekly in addition to deaily cleaning.

    They had an 8 course meal that started out ok with the first 2 then from there each course got worse and worse. It seemed like they had gotten a deal on mushrooms and tofu because that’s pretty much what every dish was. If this was what food really tasted like being vegan or vegetarian I don’t think anyone would convert from eating meat to this crap. To top it off they told you some elaborate story about the meaning behind the food….hahaha it’s g good thing they can make up stories. Anyways don’t waste your time or money. There are much better places.

    Taste of BeautyResponded on May 22, 2022This is the 1st 1 star comment we ever got,we would still thank you for your 5 star rating for our services. We could not quite decipher your dissatisfaction, cuz you did not hint what is wrong with our 3rd to 8th courses, and we typically only have one course with tofu and less than half of our courses contain various mushrooms (including some rare and wild ones). Anyhow, we have developed more than 10 new courses and incidentally plan to replace most of our current ones except first two.

    We had a lovely experience but the price was quite high to return. They really need to lower the price so more people can enjoy the food and experience. It's one of those places where I had a great "experience" but I don't think the value is there to eat there on a consistent basis. I also felt the location lacked the "high-end" feel, including table linens and napkins. That is something they need to fix. The owner was very nice and invited us to his table for tea, which was also lots of fun. If you're vegetarian or vegan, go there for a special occasion.

    Taste of BeautyResponded on May 1, 2022Thank you for your comments. The food ingredients we use are quite pricy, many of them are not only organic, but also wild; this plus the super luxury remodeling make the cost of each dish quite high. We also thank you for your observation for the table linens. We had exhausted our luxury linens that are much thicker and have ordered new ones. Since they have to be shipped from overseas, the supply chain disruption has seriously delayed its arrival, and we are trying to figure out ways .

    7 out of the 8 courses were good. The kabocha pumpkin was dry. The steak mushroom had a great flavor but it was difficult to cut with fancy looking flatware. The off menu vegan tiramisu was amazing. Bathrooms and stained chairs could be cleaner and thin picnic paper napkins felt cheap. At $89 per person (no alcohol) + automatic 20% tip you are paying for flowers, spacious remote tables, and a super quiet ambiance like a library. Decor is beige with a side of plants, bird art, and shelves with tea pots etc. Dont forget to ask about booking the post dinner tea by the front door (it was not explained to us and I feel like we missed out :)

    Taste of BeautyResponded on May 1, 2022Thank you very much for your comments and complients. We will be working to make the pumpkin dish softer and more juicy. Also, regarding your observation for the table linens: we had exhausted our luxury linens that are much thicker and have ordered new ones. Since they have to be shipped from overseas, the supply chain disruption has seriously delayed its shipping, and we are trying to figure out ways to fix it.

    Impressive food artistically presented in a very quiet separate room. Server gave insightful explanations of each course after presenting it. Relaxing and wholesome. Perfect for couples, groups and families trying to eat healthier, more sustainably while being conscious of the suffering of animals.

    This is a real world-class restaurant. It is an experience I had before only in places like New York or Paris. The hospitality, ambiance, and the entire experience are nothing you see in other restaurants, especially in OC CA. The food presentation and the story that accommodates each dish are amazing. The wine pairing is excellent. However, the food itself is not always top rating and that's a miss, Some dishes are outstanding but some are not so much - the course is an 8 dishes long. The price is extremely stip. Overall, this is a place for special occasions and is highly recommended.

    Went for the first time for a late Valentine’s Day date. There was a tasting menu that night that ended up being way more expensive than we thought it would be, but everything was delicious. The decor/ambiance felt way more like a spa than a restaurant, but it was nice that we were seated in our own private room and we enjoyed the experience. We will be back!

    Thank you for being a kind and wonderful experience on Christmas Eve. I had the vegetarian “Plum” menu plus wine pairing (in addition to the included tea pairing). Several courses were exceptional: favorites include the beginning mushroom soup, the lotus root + taro, and the steak mushroom + asparagus and tomato. The tea pairings were a delight and excellently chosen, as were the wine pairings. Some courses might do for some tweaking (A purely personal desire: I would have liked a bit more of a confident fruit-forward dessert, but that is just me), but for a restaurant to be plant-based as well as one that seems to avoid nuts while simultaneously offering a solid high-end tasting menu is quite an accomplishment. The restaurant also handles COVID protocols well, and the staff were all wonderful. I am looking forward to returning.

    You don’t need to be a vegetarian (I’m not but my guest was) to enjoy this restaurant. I’ve had tasting menus at Michelin restaurants that I enjoyed less. If you’re curious what vegetarian fine dining looks like you should give it a chance. I’ll definitely return!

    This is a prix fix eight course menu. Six of the courses were exceptionally delicious and creative. Well worth the price of the meal. But, would be much better if one could order a la carte. Maybe that's coming in the future. Our room and table were oversized for our group. Lighting was too far too bright. Combined with the cold temperature it felt sparse and antiseptic even though there was some nice artwork and furniture in the room and small but very beautiful floral arrangements. They are admittedly still "getting going." This restaurant is a great step forward for Orange County and will hopefully have a brilliant future. It needs and merits devoted patrons from the community to expand its offering.

    This restaurant just opened at August this year. It is a plant-based firm dining restaurant. The place is designed to have the relaxing and elegant atmosphere. It isn't just about healthy, vegan cuisine, it is an experience. You will impress anyone and everyone. They take vegetarian dishes to the next level. The food is either vegetarian or vegan. Each menu has 8 courses. Each dish has a story and a background, each drawing you into the beauty of food. My favorites are mushroom steak and pearl fresh soup. The service are all highly welcoming. The staff was well educated on their menu. After meal, Frank invited us to taste a blue tea at the tea station. We has a fantastic time. 100% recommended this place to anyone whether you are vegan or not.

    Amazing food and beautifully presented; one thing that stood out to me the most was that every dish was so metaphoric, meaningful back story and a meal to celebrate new beginnings. The food and the servers were top notch and were so knowledgeable of each dishe. Ambience was a bit weird, it is a bit too bright since and have random things along the way like a TV etc, it could have a better flow with maybe like more of plants and gardens. Noisy level was a bit loud, knowing that it’s coursed out menu with fine dining feeling it to it, there were just lot a noises like inserting trash bags etc, and when we first walked in, we weren’t really greeted by anyone except there was a bald Asian guy that was sitting in the front table that looked at us confused thinking why we were there? Bottom line, food was amazing and the servers were very presentable with food knowledge of food they were bringing out! I would definitely come back again but hope to see some minor improvements in the future!
