We ate outside on the patio. It was a lovely evening and a perfect meal. 3 people with an appetizer and main for each plus a bottle of wine. All 6 dishes were outstanding. If all vegan food tasted like this I would switch now. Great service. Beautiful space. Excellent. Thanks Plot.

This is our favorite local vegan spot! The service is so friendly and the patio is dog friendly! Get the chickn and waffles. But maybe share with someone because it’s a lot. And so you can try a few different things. The hush puppies, the sushi, and the stuffed yam! Love this place.

Wow! Not a big fan of Vegan fair, but this was outstanding! We tried several different entree's and appetizers and shared them among our party of four. Our waitress was super informed, courteous, tentative and provided great recommendations. Creative fun and delirious food.

Everything was amazing! The only iffy part was the cup of soup that I had. It was “Toasted Tomato w/ Rice”, the texture was just off for me. I expected a more liquidy tomato soup where instead it was more like a stew. Not my favorite, though my FAVORITE, that I wish they would make again, was the Tomato Soup with Verde Salsa and tortilla strips on top!! Please make that again!

Variety of different vegan foods made choosing very difficult! I liked the sushi rolls & hush puppies, they made for great appetizers. The shepherds pie & tofu stir fry had nice flavors & came in a large portion. The Caesar salad with chicken was my absolute favorite!
Overall happy with the experience, looking forward to going back & exploring different menu options. The restaurant itself has a great open environment & was very clean!

I guess I was expecting more. It was ok. I would go back but hopefully there are some better options. The grits and chorizo was fairly one dimensional and oily. Hush puppies were good. The best was the crab cakes. If everything on the menu was as good as these, the Plot would be a winner.

They were very busy but got our food out quickly. Everthing was well prepared and the cauliflower and sunomono were excellent. The faux meatloaf was Ok but not very flavorful. Not complaining; just stating an observation.

This is my 4th time dining at The Plot. The food, presentation and ambiance is elevated to a level not always available to us plant based eaters. Do yourself a favor and get over there. And, be sure to make a reservation. The place fills up fast.

A bit disappointed. We looked forward to our first visit as the reviews were good but overall it did not meet expectations. I had the gnocchi, bland and flavorless. Wife had the heart of palm dish which she said was okay. Service was okay, and considering they were not too busy I expected more. Maybe it was an off night.

Perhaps just not our style. Chairs and benches all hard wood so not really comfortable. Pretty noisy since the floor is polished concrete and walls without much on them, so the sound bounces around. The waitress was friendly and accommodating. Food good quality but not memorable. When we, me and my wife, go out for evening dinner we expect a place that is inviting and wants to keep you there. This seems more like a quicker go in & out establishment. But please give it a try! Glad we did. Just not for us.

My girlfriend and I have been vegan for a few years. We have pretty discerning taste and we have eaten at pretty much every vegan and vegan friendly restaurant in San Diego. The Plot is now one of, if not the, favorite vegan restaurant of ours. The food is excellent; every dish we tried had so many different components with different preparation techniques, textures, and flavors. And, all those flavors melded perfectly. We look forward to visiting again; in fact, we were scheming as to what will order next time. The service was excellent as well. An expanded craft beer menu is the only recommendation I would make.

This is the first vegetarian restaurant I have been to. The food was quite tasty, but the ingredients were well disguised by much processing and heavy herb-spices. The portions were adequate. They have only recently opened and plan to get a coffee maker, so currently no coffee. The chairs seats are metal bars spaced about ½ inch apart. I am thin with only light padding so it took me a while to get used to them. The rugged decor has no sound absorbing, floor, ceiling or walls, so sound level was near my limit.

We would like more fruits and/or vegetables. Both the Chicken and Waffle and Meatless loaf were heavy on the protein and carbs and low on fruits and vegetables.
