For vegetarians, meat-eaters also can find lots to eat. The cauliflower special was fantastic. Not always even quality. Nice late happy hour.

Leaf is a great restaurant with plenty of vegan choices. My non-vegan companions were pleasantly surprised that vegan food could be imaginative and tasty. The Jamaican jerk tempeh was excellent. My only very minor complaint is that there were few vegan choices for dessert. But I definitely recommend Leaf!

We went twice to Leaf. The first time we had the cauliflower tacos and while they were delicious, they were a little too spicy for my taste. The second time we asked them to tone down the spice. I probably should have said, "Spicy, just not too spicy." Still great. The stuffed cabbage was not as wonderful. But in general... More

This place is really lovely. So many great food choices for vegan and vegetarians. I had the Jamaican jerk tempeh and it was delicious. The only downside was the kids menu, the options weren't particularly healthy. My son didn't eat his mushroom burger and there wasn't anything else that he could have. It would be great to see simple platter... More

If you are a vegetarian or vegan this place is a must while in Denver. The cauliflower tacos were my favorite! Good wine selection and very cool atmosphere.

We had two meals at this restaurant during our stay in Boulder, my husband actually requested the second visit as he had enjoyed the food so much on the first! high praise from someone not convinced by the usual vegetarian/vegain fare on offer at most restaurants. It was wonderful for me as a lifelong vegetarian to show him that eating... More

My husband is vegetarian, I am pescatarian. It is so nice to eat somewhere that we can actually consider the whole menu, we don't have to ask about ingredients (stocks, gravy sauce bases, etc.) and there is more offered than salad! Our entrees were beautifully presented, and very flavorful. I had the Jerk Tempeh, my husband loved his vegan "crab"... More

It is truly vegetarian. The service was good and attentive. The lemonades were tasty. The food was fine, nothing special though.

I'm not a vegetarian, but my friend suggested we try this restaurant, and what a pleasant surprise. They had two special soups - a tomato and cream of zucchini; we ordered both and they were both delicious. I'm not usually a tofu fan, but I tried a vegetable dish with harrisa tofu. It had a nice spicy sweet sauce which... More
