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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This is a vegetarian restaurant that can make any dish vegan. They have lots of unique dishes and everything that I've had is delicious. Must try the focaccia bread with mushroom ragu, the mac and cheese, and the butternut squash toast.

The food is outstanding. My only criticism is that the service is too slow and the server often seems tired and out of it, and somehow always draws the conversation to herself - not appropriate for her line of work.
