Brought a friend to celebrate her birthday. She had no idea it was a vegan restaurant. We both had the special, the Beyond Meat burger. It was delicious, better than any beef burger. For my side I had the beet soup which was yummy and she had the Caesar salad which she said was good. They provided a complimentary dessert for her birthday and I had the creme brûlée made with cashew cream, no egg, truly vegan, exceptional. Really enjoyed this treat! $25 a plate each for lunch seemed a bit steep but my oh my, the meal was truly unique and delicious.

Sandy was a our server and was awesome! We had 6 of us including a little one and were accommodated nicely. The food was superb and really interesting. Non of us are Vegan strictly and 2 of the guests were staunch meat eaters and enjoyed everything. The burger is amazing whether you prescribe to Veganism or not. (You may change your tune after visiting here) The space is simple but elegant and Lauren, the manager, came over and met our table. We had enchiladas split for an app and the live rolls. Both are ones we would order again. I would highly recommend their house made hot sauce. I love hot sauce and this one was one of the few that left me satisfied.

Good food, good portions, creative, a bit expensive for lunch. Lunch soup was awesome, bean chilli. Enchiladas were very good.

Very reasonably priced for incredibly creative vegan adaptations. We tried arancini stuffed with nut Brie, live rolls, and mushroom stuffed ravioli. The wait staff was attentive but not intrusive, knowledgeable and helpful. There was a live musician performing who was amazing although shouldn’t have been amplified in this small space as we found it too loud. Nevertheless we will definitely be back soon.

I had the mushroom raviolo - the ravioli du jour - it was excellent. My husband had the bibimbap, also excellent. Everything seasoned very well, and filling. Had a chocolate cake that was dry, but honestly I was so full, that may have affected my appreciation of it.

Plant Matter Bistro was amazing. The food was excellent, many delicious vegan options to choose from. I went with 3 non-vegetarian friends who were open to trying vegan food, and they all said their meals were great!

Love this place. Food is flavorful and vegan so I actually have choices I want to eat. My non vegan friend really enjoyed her food. Staff was professional and just the right amount of friendly. I do wish portions were bigger. I was still hungry after only eating an entree.

Twice I've been there for dinner and twice the food was very good, but the service was only mediocre. Nice variety of menu options, all plant-based, many gluten-free options, creative presentation. Would love to see a decent cabernet sauvignon added. If the service improves, I'd have no trouble giving this restaurant 4 stars.

The food was excellent! Lots of gluten free options. We went on a Friday night and it was very busy, there appeared to only be on server who was a bit overwhelmed keeping up with everything but she was very nice and helpful. The atmosphere was great! Very fun! I'd go again!

Taste of the food was great. Food was fresh, hot, flavourful etc. The ambience was also lovely, and more of a dinner place than PMK. They did well with continuity between the two though, in terms of the way they are decorated. The service was timely (because we were the first table in for dinner) and the server kept our water glasses full and plates cleared (as we finished apps, bread etc). She was attentive BUT she was trying to awkwardly/inappropriately joke around with us which we were clearly uncomfortable with and unimpressed by. This experience would not deter me from coming here again because it was an individual incident but it sort of did make the dinner awkward.

Very much enjoyed our dinner, even the two not so much into plant based food liked it without missing the meat.
One of the dishes (bibimbap) was a bit too salty due to the soy sauce, but overall was an amazing dinner.

Nice atmosphere, tables seem close-ish, but diners were seated at good intervals, so there wasn't too much conversation overflow from others. I had bi bim bap, and had forgotten that it can be a spicy dish. Fortunately, the hot spice was not overwhelming. It was okay, good, but not great. Next time, I'd try another dish. Really enjoyed having tea after the meal. Teapots are lovely, rooibos tea was great. I'd go back to dine with vegan friends, but am not in a rush for a return visit.

Had a family meal before the theatre, so a special occasion for us. First visit and really impressed overall! Outstanding filo wrapped vegan brie. The epanadas were a bit spicy for wife comfort level, but gets rave reviews from others. Hubby loved his bibimbap. Daughter and wife both had ravioli special. Very good, but agreed they would have preferred 2 giant ravioli and a vegan sausage over 3 ravioli pieces as it was a bit too much of a good thing. Dessert was literally the best cake we’ve ever eaten. An orange spice cake with walnut topping. Unique and amazing flavour! There was also a small side of sweet to tofu cream that we called a little taste of heaven. Simply too delicious to rate. Please put this cake on your regular menu - it’s to die for!! One drawback for us, we got there earli-ish and atmosphere was mellow, but as soon large table beside us arrived it became too loud for us to hear our own conversation. We will return again for the food.
