I give 5 because I’ve been here often and it’s always on point. However this time they used fake meat in the Ravioli, I was not a fan. I have had the Ravioli a few times in the past and it’s always been better. If I were Plant matter, I’d steer clear of fake meat unless making a Beyond Burger or something. Still great place, great Value.

The best experience and food you could ask for! Even if you aren’t a strict vegan the food will leave you wanting more but so full you just can’t do it! Wonderful service and friendly atmosphere.

Another wonderful dinner at Plant Matter Bistro! Diners can expect a thoughtfully conceived menu, creatively tweaked and beautifully executed. We drive two hours to be here and will happily continue to do so!

I went out with my oldest daughter. We don’t get together often so it was such a special treat. Sandi was amazing and the food was devine. We started with fresh rolls and we both had a bowl. Nice wine and lovely ambience.

Feb. 19/19. How amazing to find such a restaurant catering to vegan clientele and using local vegetables when possible. The chef is to be commended, the only glitch was a cold creme brûlée. Linguine with avocado sauce was rich and flavourful. The maitake mushroom steak delicious with vegetables crisp to perfection, mushroom soup beyond the pale. Service was gracious and helpful. Looking forward to enjoying a meal there on our next visit to London. Frank & Liz.

This was our first visit to PMB - an anniversary dinner. We found the portions a bit small for the price, and both our dishes were WAY too salty (and generally we like salty foods!). If you have a big appetite I don't think you'll be satisfied with one main dish, and most of them are about $20 each. However, the food was obviously crafted with care, our server was delightfully quirky and friendly and the atmosphere was nice (the bar height tables are a bit small and squished though). Although I know local and organic ingredients cost more, overall I found we paid far too much for the experience ($75 after tax and tip for an appetizer, 2 mains and a bottle of Booch - no alcohol or dessert). I might try it again and order a different meal to give it a second chance, but it was disappointing; it certainly didn't live up to my expectations.

We went to PMB for Valentine's Day (my partner and I are both vegan). The food was amazing, as usual. I frequently dine at their other restaurants as well (Plant Matter Kitchen & Plant Matter Cafe). I was not disappointed!

Really enjoyed our visit for Londonlicious. The restaurant was pretty quiet but filled up more later into the evening. We both enjoyed the food and were surprised at the generous portions of our starter plates on the fixed menu. The service was very attentive and our waitress checked in on us and gave us great recommendations. The only glitch came when it was time to pay and our waitress seemed to disappear. Eventually another server came over to help us. I’d definitely come back again. Not the cheapest but good value for what we ate.

My husband and I enjoyed a delicious dinner here Saturday evening. There was lots to choose from on the menu and we appreciated being able to have a glass of wine and/or beer to accompany our meal. Although we are not vegan, it was enjoyable dining. Interesting and creative options. Our server was delightful.

The food is good but the portions are small for the price. Service was very good. Not too busy that night so not too noisy. A bit of a tight squeeze when it's busy. Many interesting choices on the menu. It's great to have a Vegan restaurant nearby.

I had planned on ordering the Vegetable Linguine but went with the Eggplant Parmesan instead, and it was just delicious - I now have two favourites! The service was excellent, and they were happy to accommodate a few special requests from our table. Don’t forget to leave room for the Creme Brûlée :)

Excellent all around. Tasty, high quality, fine vegan dining. Intimate but relaxed atmosphere. Good service, rapid, with a smile and sense of humour. High quality, tasting, well presented food, from apps to mains to desserts. Portion sizes a little on the small side for someone with a hearty appetite but just right for me. Highly recommend this establishment.

I was sceptical at first (I’m a meat eater), but loved the food! I had a mushroom base gravy stew that was so delicious. My girlfriend had the eggplant parmesan. The waitress was very friendly and the atmosphere was inviting and relaxing.

Highly recommend for those looking to try something new or needing a good vegatarian friendly spot.
