The beverage menu had mylko items but when ordering the items were not available. I think the server should have mentioned it when we sat down to avoid customers spending time to decide on their beverage only to have to decide again because the menu didn't indicate the item wasn't available nor did the server say as such or have the menu reprinted.

wonderful food, great service but way too noisy! Were sat next to a DJ table and had to keep asking him to turn it down. We were not alone in asking.

Outstanding quality meal, really one of the best vegan/vegetarian meals we've eaten at worldwide. Both the watermelon poke and the coconut ceviche were outstanding as appetizers, and the avocado lime tartar and kelp Caesar were both very popular with all of us.

The ambiance is upbeat and informal, but (particularly in the summer with the front façade open) not too noisy.

The service was very attentive without being overbearing.

All in all a perfect evening!

I celebrated my birthday and my entire family was really impressed with the food and service. They also did a special arrangement for me at the end of the evening which was really thoughtful! Cheers.

Hard to compete with other places at the moment when it comes to ambience when having to look out on construction... but this is into temporary. Still great food and great service!

We had the eggplant and cauliflower entrees and we were absolutely blown away at how flavorful and unique the presentation was. Thank you for a lovely evening.

I rarely go to a vegetarian restaurant but we specifically chose this place to celebrate a friend's birthday and she is vegetarian. I was not expecting much and so I was blown away! I was immediately drawn to the modern chic decor as my favourite colour is green. But most of all, the food was phenomenal. I didn't know that vegan food could be so good and so filling. I would definitely come back again!

Service was slow and we had to ask for our server several times
Outside construction is detracting from the place and overall look and feel to restaurant
Didn’t have the right bottle of wine and kept getting the order wrong. We were encouraged to try it but was not enjoyable as they one they had listed on the menu

Not likely to return

An absolutely stunning restaurant with incredibly comfortable seating (important when I spend hours there!) Ambience was beautiful. The almond ricotta was to die for and the avo tartar was perfection. Staff is peppy and very on the ball. A new favourite for sure!

Food was sub-par. The two salads we got (kelp caesar and habibi) were overall bland and uninteresting. Making a good salad bowl is not that difficult, so it was surprising that these were not great. It seemed like they both needed more flavours and ingredients.

The food was great, the decoration was very nice, but the service was very slow. I had to ask the server once, and the hostess once over 25 mins later to remind the server to bring me the bill.

This is the Planta burger and I also got the cauliflower tots ! The fries pictured were not my personal favourite as it was smoked paprika but I’m sure it’s just me :) the restaurant was loud but you could still talk.

Would definitely recommend cauliflower tots

The food was fine. Most of the staff was great. But even when not great the staff was fine. It was loud and there was a DJ? Don't regret going but probably won't go again.

Confused hostesses and management who can’t seem to sort out seating!
And overall, another vegetarian restaurant with everything on the menu sounding like a meat dish! Oh the irony

Food never disappoints but is a bit pricey. Calzone was perfect - sweet, salty, savoury - the beyond sausage was soooo good. Cauliflower Parm was very good - crispy breading, melty cheese, good tomato sauce. The bomba gave the dish a good tang. Blueberry cheesecake and coffee to finish - nice and creamy and not too sweet!

The one downside is that we had to wait to be seated about 10 minutes, even though we had a reservation and we could see there were table open.

If you’re looking to try a vegan restaurant with good food and great ambiance this restaurant is it. On Friday night they had a DJ playing some cool house music.

Third time visiting. Seems like the quality of food and service has slipped. Not sure I’d visit again.

Waited about 5 mins to be seated despite the fact that I had a reservation. They decided to seat the girl who arrived after me meanwhile no one even acknowledged me even though there were three people at the hostess stand.

Service was quite slow despite the fact the restaurant wasn’t terribly busy. For example, waited at least 15 mins between when the bill arrived and when they came around with the msging. Burger arrived prior to the antipasto plate which even the waiter acknowledged was odd.

Waiters were friendly and pleasant when present.

Restaurant was beautiful, service was excellent. I’m not a vegan but I have to admit the food was delicious. Very surprised by the burger which actually tasted like a beef burger. We had a good variety of items off the menu -everything was very good.

Love the food but the music and noise levels have transformed the space from a beautiful dining experience where people can connect over nourishing delicious food to an impersonal club like atmosphere that creates disconnection instead. We literally had 4 members of our party have to leave early because of the noise. Sadly, we won’t be returning until the ambience allows for connection over food.

We love the food! The experience is always fantastic...Thursday, 2:30 pm reservation, lunch for two, for a birthday treat...The server put two delicious truffles on a plate with a candle, instead of having a whole dessert( we are both trying to get back our summer weight)-perfect...Due to all the construction outside, it felt like the restaurant was a bit empty for the 2:30 pm sitting...It was ok, cause noise level was down, but I do hope construction will end soon-it felt a bit empty...I do always think a bit about the price-might be nice to have some special set meal choices, that were more affordable...I'd be there every day if I could afford it!
