Urban Vegan Kitchen never disappoints!!! We sat downstairs for the first time which private, funky, and cool. We always go family style or tapas style because there’s so many good dishes and you can’t not try them all. Seriously they have the best vegan Mac n Cheese I’ve ever had. Always a good selection of veggies and creative dishes.
Try the Kombrewcha as well!

I went to the UVK for the first time. I am normally not a vegan person, but I wanted to try something new. I enjoyed this restaurant, food and decor. The order was the tofu scrambled plate, broccolini and the shrimp po boy with pineapple juice. The brownie was dessert. Everything was good. I left full and happy. They had a downstairs which was small like upstairs, but nice. Plenty of diverse pictures on the wall. Our server was fantastic. Overall, I can recommend this place for vegan and non-vegan alike. I will be returning again.

I drove from Philadelphia in March to this restaurant to treat my boyfriend on his birthday. We haven’t stopped raving about the food here , we finally found it in our schedule to come back up and have a dinner to celebrate my new job offer. The food is amazing, the music , the culture, the service is well worth it.

I was looking forward to visiting this resteraunt for a while. I had made reservations for 4 people for 630 and we were seated 30 mins late in the basement. We ordered everything at once due to the wait. The glasses of wine took 10 minutes and then where a mess upon arrival. She came with 3 glasses of white wine (only 2 ordered wine) and literally didn't know what she was serving. She ultimately left 2 wines and tried to pretend she was joking about not knowing the wines but she truly did not know what she gave us. Our appetizers then came with no side plates. One friends dinner came out five minutes before everybody else's. When we finally asked for the check there was no pen. I honestly had a terrible time. Definitely not worth $200.

The dining room downstairs smells like industrial dishwasher and it is very unappetizing. The service was friendly but slow on a Thursday night. The food is...what it says. Vegan versions of comfort food, so not light or healthy-feeling.

They play great music but it is just too loud. We asked if it could be turned down and it was, a tiny amount. There is little atmosphere downstairs and it’s a pity they don’t have outdoor tables. But it’s good food.

First, I‘m not a veggie but the restaurant was recommended to us so we gave it a try.
I was reall impressed. The food is great and even if you‘re not a veggie, you‘ll be totally happy with the menu.
We had the okra as a starter and the salad bowl with avocado and the chicken n waffles. Very delicious!

Service was very great and super kind.

Everything was awesome at Urban Vegan. The BLT was surprisingly hardy and extremely tasty. The menu options were varied and all sounded good, which made us order more than just the dinner item. Only complaint is that I called to make a reservation and was told they were booked;however, right afterwards I was able to make a reservation on opentable. There was many reservation opening on the website. That put a bad taste in my mouth, but the awesome food made up for it.
I wish I could add more photos but the files are too large. Trust me the atmosphere was great and the food looked yummy.

The food was significantly less good in quality since the last time I went a couple of years ago when the menu was different. While the menu has moved to a comfort food direction there's no need for it to be less delicious.

It was my first time going there and it was amazing. The good was great and so was the service. Our only small complaint is that I wish they offered unlimited drinks for brunch. Because the drinks were amazing. Other than that, I recommend it 1000 percent to fellow vegans :)
