At Vegetable (stylized /vege•ta•ble/), a rustic 36-seat all organic restaurant in the shadows of Universal Studios, Chef & Proprietor Jerry CP Yu preaches the gospel of “guilt-free & comfortable food.” The interior features reclaimed wood, aged brick, exposed pre-war rafters with industrial chic metal shop fans and chalk walls featuring punny vegetable artwork, all lit by the soft glow of Edison bulbs.
As for the cuisine, expect bursts of spice, deeply concentrated flavors and a big mix-and-match menu that’s designed to be passed around and shared. Vegetable-focused dishes such as slow-roasted rainbow heritage carrots, fire-charred Brussels sprouts, blistered sweet potatoes with a spicy dry rub, and pan-seared saffron corn cake that is both crispy and creamy. A unique and fun food experience awaits all foodies the menu, along with the dining space, is built from the ground-up as a showcase of the restaurant’s

Fantastic Burgers and service. Can’t wait to go back.
Can't wait to come back. The food was fantastic and the service was wonderful.
Fabulous experience. Great food and a terrific server. We enjoyed all our menu items including the craft root beer.
Very great meal per usual! Would definitely recommend continuously as long as the value is there. @iamspyda
Delicious food and great service. We loved every dish we got and enjoyed relaxing on the sidewalk table as temperatures lowered. Great find and we'll be back for more!
Vegetable is literally one of my most favorite restaurants ever I’m so excited they have a pop up during the pandemic it’s a different menu but it’s so worth it and let me tell you I drive approximately 30 miles just to get there
Always amazing!! Food and service is top notch. Check it out.
Very pricey. The Brussel Sprouts were excellent. The Civiche was not great and we were not offered a refund. Great service. The mushroom scallops were just ok. I would try it again though because the menu is nice.
Really good food and ambient, you should bring your own wine if you wanna drink alcohol! :)
Amazing vegan food!!! Try the cheese plate
The food was beyond delicious and our server was wonderful, informative, and not super hip but super cool!!!
Mock tails were a nice touch!!
Due to its smaller size the ambience is more intimate, noise levels lower and servers have more time for the company. We have gone here for both brunch and dinner and both times, So Delicious!! The best vegan French toasts I’ve had for brunch! Really like their risotto, butternut squash toast, fingerling potatoes with vegan cheese as well as their desserts are freaking solid 👌🏽! I have yet to try their vegan cheeses but am excited for when that day comes. Also delicious teas with a really nice presentation in a French press.
One of the top vegetarian restaurants we've been to nationally. Great selection, great food, BYOB, fantastic service (Lauren) .
I went here by luck and have returned 3 times in the last 3 weeks. It's that good- the kale salad turned me into a convert, prior it tasted like cardboard. I enjoy the 3 bean chili too and then the candied yams...OMG divine.
Wonderful meal. We aren't vegetarian and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Our friend (vegan) said it was best he's had.
The food was excellent and a good value. The waitress was very helpful with the menu, exceedingly professional, and made the overall experience wonderful. I would happily order the same items again, but I want to try many more dishes.
Love the menu. Wish they had a liquor license for wine and beer. Big portions of fresh vegetables and main dishes. You will definitely have a doggie bag to take home. Also wish all the tables were booths because the high top chairs and tables are not comfortable.
Great food, nice atmosphere. Will come again
Honestly, overpriced, and under-inspired - sadly. Certain flavors and mixes worked, others were overproduced and clearly had been sitting, waiting for our order. A dinner for two (admittedly enough for three) with no drinks came in at $120 - meaning pricey, to boot. Convenience (especially its location immediately adjacent to the 101) means that I might be back, but that's really the only reason. If I weren't a vegan, the In-N-Out across the street would hold more appeal. Sad, but true.
Really fantastic tasting food. Excellent service! We had vegetarian guests visiting and we are so glad we tried this place. We'll be back!
Great food, excellent service, and nice atmosphere
Everything looked amazing on the menu. Portions were a bit small for the cost. Cannot say that anything stood out and in the end the worlds tiniest scoop of ice cream left a negative although tasty impression.
Vegetable is my favorite restaurant. Their food is creative and innovative. The menu changes with some frequency, so you are sure to be delighted by their offerings. Also, they have an amazing selection of kombucha!!!
Amazing food and so many options!! Special spot for vegetarians, vegans and anyone who is GF.
One of our family’s favorite dinner places. We like vegetarian/vegan places, and Vegetable never disappoints us. Reliably great food!
Tasty, lots of options and healthy. Also, service was very good.
The food was outstanding. We picked the vegan options for all our food orders and everything was delicious. The best vegan/vegetarian restaurant I have ever been to. Food dishes come when each plate is ready, so we ate family style. Go with patience. This was not a quick in and out dining type of place. There was one girl who had to handle seating, drinks, ordering, food delivery, and bussing. She did great, but she could have used help for the full house on that particular Sunday night. It’s was a 45 min drive for us, but worth it, and we will go again.
interesting food choices
a bit pricey but really good
Overall an excellent experience. Went with family, though they are not used to this type of food, the responses were positive. I personally found the quality very good, and the flavors enjoyable. The selection of cheeses are great to go with some wine.
Fantastic food in a lovely setting. And great service. Wonderful dinner!!
Everything, from the food to ambiance was great. It was on the pricy side though.
The food at Vegetable was great - albeit a bit pricy for the contents. They are doing a great job in expanding the vegan palate for the general public
Cozy dark wall. Reclaimed lumber paneling. Industrial light fixtures. Outstanding vegetables prepared in innovative ways. Highly recommend corn grits appetizer. No wine license but can bring your own. Attentive service.
Fantastic vegetarian and vegan options, they offer great food without making it seem like they are trying to create fake meats. Flavorful and creative, their meals and sides will definitely impress.
From the minute we got there we were greeted with a warm friendly people. We sat down and was looking at the menu and had a difficult time deciding what to try first everything looked absolutely delicious. We finally settled on corn cakes and was so pleased they were delicious
Needle in a haystack! Delicious food. Super nice severs. Can’t wait to go back.
Friendly and helpful crew. The food was amazing. We can't wait to try more items off the menu. Vegetable will most likely become a staple of ours.
Food was great! Loved the vegan cheeses, a must have for sure. The mushroom gravy bread was fantastic too. I would definitely recommend this place.
Nice Mother's Day dinner with my kids here. Good Vegan and gluten-free options to most items on their menu, which was very helpful. Portions were generous, food was very tasty, fun, friendly atmosphere. Parking was a little challenging, hopefully you can find something on the street nearby.
Great food beautiful decor. Rustic furniture are comfortable. I’ll be back!
