    Our third time dining here. I’m new to the vegan scene and carnivores trust me, you won’t miss the meat! A little secret: get the “sample” sized entree so you can try more than one item. Otherwise you’ll have a tough time deciding between all the great choices on the creative menu. Interior is impeccable.

    Glad to hear you've been enjoying yourselves! New seasonal items will be making their way onto the menu next month!

    Wow this was quite a pleasant surprise. The food selection and service was very unique and on a my scale for great restaurant’s The Plantry Cafe is at the top of my must return soon list. Do not let the name fool you. This place is surprisly large inside and fitting as a high end restaurant. The owner stopped by our table and was an absolute fountain of information on plant based food. Cheers

    Quiet place and the high tea was good. Service was ok once the bridal party that was at the value was setup we got better service. When we got there only the 1st person who got there was told what was on the high tea menu. Asked one of the server's if she could tell us what was on the tray, but we could tell she had no clue does she explained it was vegan made items. When they were ready for us to leave to turn over the table and there was no one waiting either we got better service. Very surprised there was a 20% gratitude charged for all high tea service and thankful our service explained that to us. I will got back to see how the service for regular menu will be next time.

    We recently visited Plantry Cafe for dinner and came away with mixed feelings. The ambiance was certainly lovely, with warm lighting and cozy decor creating a pleasant atmosphere. However, our overall experience was unfortunately impacted by significant wait times and some major service hiccups. Upon arrival at 6:15 PM, we waited close to an hour for our initial drinks. While the cocktails themselves were tasty, their prices felt quite high, especially considering the lack of detailed descriptions from our waitress. Unfortunately, she even seemed unsure of the ingredients in the featured cocktails for the evening. The restaurant was operating with a set menu on this particular night. While some dishes like the cheese sampler plate and the white & dark chocolate cherry cheesecake were quite good, others were more average. Unfortunately, service attentiveness wasn't consistent throughout the evening. We needed to flag down our waitress on several occasions for additional service, including water refills. During our time there, we witnessed several other parties become visibly frustrated with wait times, with at least three couples ultimately leaving before being seated or served. It's understandable that staffing shortages can occur, and we appreciate the challenges this can present. However, a simple notification upon arrival about potential delays due to staffing issues would have managed expectations and set a more positive tone for the evening. Perhaps, in such situations, offering a slightly reduced menu could also help streamline service and improve efficiency. Overall, while the ambiance at Plantry Cafe was undeniably charming and some dishes were enjoyable, the significant wait times and inconsistent service unfortunately detracted from the overall experience. With better communication and management of wait times, this restaurant could certainly improve its ability to deliver a truly positive dining experience for all guests.

    The specific details you mentioned were unfortunately an accurate representation of hiccups that Valentine's evening. The night was a challenging one for us as our kitchen printers stopped firing and led to much disconnect. I'm not sure what your aim was with mentioning anyone who left before being served, or why you felt it necessary to leave this review copy and pasted to 3 separate websites on TripAdvisor, OpenTable, and Facebook instead of giving us this feedback directly and allowing us the opportunity to accommodate you on another evening for a better experience as we start this new business for the community. I do hope the next time you underperform, your audience shows your grace and redemption instead of criticism on multiple platforms.

    Restaurant is nice. Food was good. Portions were small. Service was unorganized. Dinner took 3 hours. It was very expensive. Tip is forced and you are charged to use credit cards.

    Lovely decor, friendly staff, great menu. They just need a little work being customer friendly. Charging for still water because it’s filtered? Mandatory 20% tip even for one or two people? Ridiculous. Owner is trying to serve great vegan food but has to understand how to maintain repeat customers without being offensive to folks who dine out many times per week. Keep trying Doc! We need more Vegan restaurants in BTR
