Awesome Vegan Food!!!

My husband and I decided to take two of my closest friends for their birthday outing. One partakes in vegan healthy choices and the other one is working on holistic healing/healthier food choices. This was the perfect opportunity to share all of our likes in one location. The natural taste in drinks such as their "New York New York" or simple as cucumber and pear juice concoction was absolutely perfect. We were all satisfy with the price, ambiance, taste and overall the experience.

Thank you for helping us cross out this location from our BUCKET LIST!!

The menu options were very limited with no salad options other than a small side salad. The servers were not attentive and moved slow

The food was good. I would not go back due to many things including very small portions & the $20 + per entree prices. So- it doesn’t seem to add up. Again- service was terrible. Also- being told no to a request for a corn rather than flour switch was not cool considering they were both on the menu. The bad Service was The stand out here. I don’t like to use the word poor.. but consistently very slow, & lazy. Somethings ordered or asked for never arrived.. water glasses were left empty for the majority of the meal. The server was rude- server would arrive blatantly interrupting meaningful conversation never saying “excuse me” or “ pardon me” or even “hello” - also what works is just standing there for a moment - if the patron is ready they will halt their convo and Turn their attention to you if not let them finish their conversation or that portion or continue and come back in a minute or 2. But he would just walk up rudely and start yaping loudly over our conversation because it was a convenient time for him- he would come and go rarely & each time leaving dirty empty plates on the table for the entire meal & again would leave empty water glasses. My advice is don’t get sat in the basement. Also- The drinks were very weak, and at $14 a piece were over priced. They were served in very small glasses which were FULL of ice. Cheaply made, lacking substance & very expensive. As presented it was a $6-$7 drink. The bar here is another weak point. But I will say the fresh juice was very good. Too bad the booze & ginger were non existent & almost immediately the drinks became a watered down mess.

This restaurant was truly amazing, I would even go so far as life changing. I went with my best friend (we are both vegan) and my dad, and we loved it! Even my non-vegan dad was amazed by the flavors! The mississippi mud pie off the dessert menu with vanilla ice cream was life changing. My friend and I both agreed it was one of the top 3 best things we have ever eaten, and by far the best vegan dessert we have had. We definitely peaked while we were eating it, and nothing will ever be as good.

Food is delicious but the service was terrible! Had to practically beg the waitress to take our order then waited an hour for the food to arrive. Then they charged me twice and have yet to correct it on my account! So bummed I can't recommend this place.

The food took a good half an hour to arrive, the bloody marys were so acidic my friend and I couldn't finish them because our stomachs were hurting. We had a breakfast sandwich that sounded amazing but was small portioned, and incredibly bland. It tasted like cardboard and the textures were tough. Disappointed as I have been to urban vegan kitchen a year ago for lunch and it was quite good. Definitely not worth to go back again for the Brunch menu especially for the price range.

The food was delicious, although more expensive than expected. The atmosphere was incredible and the noise level was very low. The service was mediocre, and the server double charged my card accidentally. However, I will be returning!

Took my vegan daughter here for her birthday. Even though everything on the menu was plant-based, we (the carnivores in the group) loved every dish. The macaroni and "cheese" with shiitake "bacon" was our favorite, with the jack fruit quesadilla a close second.

I love the food at Urban Vegan Kitchen and the staff and owner are so nice. But the portions are way too small. I was still hungry after finishing my breakfast sandwich. I needed double the food.

Unfortunately the special was mashed potatoes with Brussels brouts carrots and mushroom. Everything room temperature. Potatoes tasteless and bland. Brussel sprouts also tasteless and not cooked correct. Mushroom was overwhelmed with the sauce on it. Carrots were the only thing done correctly and there were 3! My husbands tabos were good so they can do that right. Waitress was VERY nice about my meal being terrible. It’s sad bc vegan food it delicious, I cook it at home daily but this just gives it a bad name!

I heard a lot about this restaurant and it lived up to my expectations. We went there pretty late so we had the place basically to ourselves. The food was amazing especially the buffalo wings. We had the chicken and waffles and the Mac and cheese as well and they were delicious. We can’t wait to go back !

I loved this restaurant for a few years but I probably won’t go back. The food was still great but the recent changes put a strong emphasis on the bar aspect. I was seated at a counter as the removed half of the sit down tables. Very uncomfortable for me. Plus, the music was lound. If you are in the bar/restaurant scene with loud music, this place might appeal to you. Me, I am too old for that.

The food was fantastic and the server was excellent. The only complaint was - we were in the downstairs seating area - the music was turned up right at 6pm and it went from distracting with some of the music to physically painful with other songs. Our server kindly got it turned down but evidently it took some time to figure out how.

We waited over 45 minutes for our food. Restaurant was busy but definitely not beyond manageable. Waiter followed up once to let us know food on way and once it did arrive it was so small. Portions are very disappointing for the price. Overall there are better vegan restaurants in the area that would be worth the visit.

Food was just ok. Ordered the Brussels sprouts that were supposed to be crispy and have a maple dressing. Weren’t crispy and a little on the al dente side. Little to no flavor. Lasagne was good but nothing special.

My waitress was amazing. I wish I remembered her name to list in my review.

The food was pretty good. I enjoyed the friend okra and the blt. My fiancé had the chicken and waffles which he enjoyed.

We also tried the vegan Mac and cheese. We did not like it at all. We tried to enjoy it because we hate sending food back but it just wasn’t for us. The pasta was perfectly creamy but it lacked flavor.

I have two complaints. I think the drinks were a bit over priced. Also, it was freezing in the restaurant. That really hindered our ability to enjoy ourselves. We wanted to stay longer and order more food and drinks. But we could not stand the cold. We literally ate our food in our hat, coat and scarf . However, we were still cold. As a result, we could not wait to leave because we could not stand the cold.

I guess I’m used to nicer restaurants, this felt like a place you would go when you’re in college in 1995. But the food tasted delicious! Even though they weirdly insisted we keep our flatware after the appetizer course. Had the burger, Mac and cheese, fried okra, all delicious and my non vegan husband loved it too, ate every bite. Cool DJ with throwback music thrilled my 90s aficionado husband.
