Over the past 20 years, Asheville has become a 'foodie' town. Restaurants and ideas come and go, but there are ~10 'must eat' places to take out-of-town visitors. However, when we go out to eat for a special event or quiet evening out, we often choose PLANT because the food is simply SUPERB! Whether it is the specialty drink menu,... More

This restaurant is a vegetarian paradise. The desserts are healthy too. A little on the high end on pricing but a nice place to enjoy a special night out.

Visited this restaurant while on a weekend vacation in Asheville and my boyfriend and I were very impressed. We recently became vegans, and haven't been to many vegans restaurants but the food in this place was both filling, and very delicious. We started off with the Brussels sprouts and the grilled beets. Both were amazing. Second course was the portobello... More

Absolutely the best. Started with the cheese plate - fabulous. Next the portobello plate - amazing. Finally the Blondie with hazelnut ice cream instead of the coffee flavored - to die for. Best plant based restaurant anywhere.

Thought we'd try vegetarian before a show in Asheville so Plant came recommended. It did not disappointed with beautiful looking and delicious offerings. We started with a Brussel sprouts roasted in a soy-ginger sauce that knocked our socks off and a scrumptious roasted beet with horseradish ( mild) sauce. Next we went for a vegan cheese platter with two very... More

Reluctantly, I went to this place with family - vegans and other. We ended up having a lot of small plates and single servings. I recognized several of the foods that were prepared. Let me say, that the place was packed! Anyone who even aspired to be vegan must have shown up. I tried, I really did. The only thing... More

We took friends for a birthday celebration! THE BEST VEGAN anywhere I have eaten. The owner and chef's know what they are doing. Unbelievable food, service and desserts!
