Went there for Valentine’a Day. Food was alright but honestly not amazing. Service was good. We kinda left feeling like we got ripped off.... cost 200$ for the valentine’s day menu for 2 with a drink each. Kind of feels like a lot considering the food was nothing impressive. Wish we went to Mythology instead.

The highlight of the night was the eggplant dish

Not expecting a whole set menu. Couldn't decide what we wanted from the regular menu as it wasnt even an option. 65 dollars per person WAS NOT worth it. Portions were tiny. Service was poor, didnt get greeted until 20mins after we were seated, and continued to feel like we were bothering the server.

Here with a group for a goodbye party and our guest of honor is vegetarian. Nice set up and new. Service is superb and nice ambience. Food portion is small. Good for lunch for the ladies but may leave the guys hungry. The pizza is a decent size so the guys may opt for that. Good choice for an upscale vegetarian food. I had a ‘crab’ cake with heart of artichoke but could still taste the vinaigrette on the artichoke. May be the chef could use bamboo or other ingredient instead. Nice presentation. The dessert menu looks great but didn’t have a chance to try.

As a vegan I was happy to see an attempt at a high end plant based restaurant. I decided to celebrate my wife's birthday there. My wife and guests are not vegans and I wanted to impress them with exceptional vegan high end cuisine. Unfortunately, I have to say we were extremely disappointed in the food and service. First of all, the restaurant should not try to simulate popular meat dishes. It begs the comparison to the actual dish which is always a losing battle and will ultimately be a disappointment. Having said that, some of the simulations we tried were good for example the pizza but others were awful like the hotdog, shrimps and crab cakes.

|However, my biggest disappointment was the signature burger dish. I had read great reviews and the photo on the website of a juicy full sized burger was really appealing. I ordered the burger and upgraded to truffle fries instead of the spicy fries. Imagine my disappointment when the dish arrived with a tiny burger and a mountain of spicy fries (not truffle fries). The burger was not full size actually a slider (unlike the photo). As a vegan we are obviously health conscious so a mountain of fries would not be appealing. Also, if you want to use the simulation theme one would assume that the joy of a big juicy fat burger would be a big juicy fat burger not a tiny version. Also, since the server brought the wrong type of fries (a natural mistake) one would assume that the server would immediately rectify. Unfortunately, the server brought the fries 10 minutes later, when most of the guests had finished eating their entries. To add to the disappointment the server charged for extra fries. Not a good practice to charge for your mistake.

Overall a great idea for high end plant based restaurant. Atmosphere was good but food was fair but not exceptional considering the high cost. Would not recommend.

Came here to celebrate a special occasion (engagement) and introduce our parents for the first time. Even though I’m the only vegan, everyone in the group loved the food and cocktails and would definitely come back. Love the kimchi spring rolls, cauliflower tots and cheese plate.

My daughter is vegan and I've recently changed my way of life to be vegan as well. We went there for her birthday with a couple of meat eaters and everyone was blown away by the flavourful dishes. Two appetizers, 4 main courses, 4 desserts - all amazing! I just wished I lived closer!

The food was outstanding and even impressed the carnivore that was with us. The team approach for serving was great until the end when we had to wait 15minutes for our dessert, but the waitress did comp it for the inconvenience. The restaurant was rather loud but very fun. The washrooms were on the second floor and difficult for a member of our party who had mobility issues.
