“Tasting is believing” at this UES “phenom” that “sets the standard” for vegan “fine dining” with “distinctive” , “quality-sourced” organic dishes and wines delivered by “enthusiastic” servers in “intimate” digs; a “pleasant departure from meaty fare” , it's “so worth” the “premium price.”

All the people were so nice and attentive. Great food. Good drinks and good ambiance. They have gluten and soy free options. The three cheeses were my favorite. I have tried this starter and different restaurants but this is the winner!

I have been here several times. The place is really fancy. They have great vegan food here. I would recommend that you make a reservation for this place before you visit since it is usually busy. The seating is great and it’s spread over two floors. The only negative is that it is way more expensive compared to other vegan locations around the city.

Amazing. Amazing. AMAAAAzing. Absolutely delicious food, we all are until we were totally stuffed- then kept going! It was all delicious! Nice atmosphere and friendly waiters. You gotta go! Loved that the place wasn't screaming 'vegan' - no signs around to say that it was.
