Cannot remember when we were this impressed with a meal! There are not enough words to express the level of satisfaction we had when leaving this restaurant! Every bite was as beautiful as it was tasty. Top notch service. It's now one of our favorites!

I was joining dinner to be w friends but I loved all the food we tried. My favorites were the cheese and the portabella. We plan to go back soon so I can try more.

We loved Plant. It was a wonderful experience. The menu was full of amazing choices. The food was outstanding. Once we had the first entrée we wanted more and more. We can't wait to go back.

The food was good and amazing for Vegan entrees. It was extremely busy and somewhat pricey, compared to non Vegan restaurants with similar menus.

Yes. Risotto is usually a safe bet. I'm a vegetarian who absolutely hates tempeh but the walnut crusted dish is delicious. Your wife is lucky to be married to a vegetolerant guy like you!
