Me and my boyfriend are vegeterians and we came to the restaurant excited with the amazing reviews. We found the food to be very boring in taste. I ordered something with soy meat and black rice that was supposed to be spicy but it tasted...More

Love, love this place. The food is so scrumptious and the presentation just beautiful. I could eat here everyday. And, it's all vegetarian, even vegan. Their coconut avocado soup is to die for - worth the 90 minute drive from San Diego. They do a...More

This is a place that if you order a dish that would come with meat you will not know the difference. The food is top quality. The appetizers are always great. Don't forget to look at the Living Deserts which are the best. We normally...More

Vegan? This good? SERIOUSLY?!?! Oh my goodness, you will not believe the flavors these folks bring to a plate of raw, vegan cuisine. If you're vegetarian, vegan, paleo, dairy-free, or gluten-free, you will be in heaven. If you're a carnivore, I promise ... you won't...More

One of the best meals I've had in all of California. Au Lac menu is entirely vegan with a good selection of raw (living) foods, but you don't have to be a vegetarian to enjoy their wonderful Vietnamese food with a twist (a cuisine that...More

They call themselves a "Humanese" restaurant, and they serve a variety of Asian foods including Pho, Spring Rolls, Sweet and Sour Soup, and Eggplant Hot Pot. But, they also have an extensive raw menu that includes menu items that seem out of place like Risotto...More

I've been eating at Au Lac for years, and it never disappoints. EVER. There are a few things to know about the restaurant. It has two kitchens/two menus--the cooked, and the raw or "living' menus. Everything is vegan, just divided into cooked and raw items...More

Great place for a romantic dinner or for a special occasion. My only negative is that they rely too much on the faux meat. More dishes with vegetables would be great.

Here at Au Lac the compassion manifests itself in the attention to detail that goes into every dish we want to cultivate an atmosphere where people come together to create a center of gravity pulsating with love, harmony, and health. We opened our doors in 1996 and introduced our Vegan RAW cuisine in 2001. The concept of the restaurant is we honor the arrival of every guest, treat each as our friend to honor the humanese concept, and anyone representing Au Lac is eager to present the two kitchens and have a chance to serve a delicious meal. It's a unique meal in that there are only plant-based, unprocessed and organic ingredients. Vegan-Living is our style of dining but also a lifestyle you can feel.
