Food great, service great. Took an important design client. Why has Chase permitted the quality of decor to fall to dingy and worn? This is Yorkville.

This restaurant in a trendy upscale neighborhood is a vegans dream! No worries, everything is plant based. The only problem is trying to narrow down your order. Everything sounded delicious. Our waitress was most helpful when asked her favorites. I tend to order something I wouldn't make myself at home. We started out with the caprese salad light and flavorful. I ordered the eggplant lasagna which was prepared to perfection. The skin was crispy but the dish was creamy and rich in flavor. My husband ordered the Habibi salad and the split pea fritters were a nice twist on falafal. We had to try the gelato and it did not disappoint. The seasonal flavor was blueberry and basil. An interesting yet surprisingly delicious combination. Our waitress also offered complimentary truffles recognizing a fellow foodie. We had so much food but never felt stuffed which is the beauty of a great vegan meal! I offered my compliments to the chefs and the waitress said what they do back there in the kitchen is truly art. Indeed!

Went for a birthday and I told the waiter it was his birthday and he said no problem. He later came out with a cake and later on I saw it on my bill.
I know some restaurants do charge for the cake, however, I would have liked to have been told as well as then maybe I could have chosen what cake I wanted rather than him showing up with the birthday cake.

The coconut ceviche and the grilled peaches were very good. We were not impressed by the pizza and the French fries...
The cold pressed juice was extremely tasty.

We were overall underwhelmed by the food. The menu seemed inspired so we were expecting it to be delicious and of the 9 dishes we ate, 3 were very good and the others just good. Not worth the hefty price tags.

Amazing place, outstanding vegan food. Great to visit with family and children as well.

Waiters were a bit slow picking up empty plates from our table, which was a bit annoying. Other than that they were very knowledgable and good ambassadors of the brand/product.

Will definitely be back and always recommend to all.

Food was amazing and the atmosphere very beautiful. The server was very pleasant and knowledgeable. The only negative thing is that we were at lunch, obviously working corporate folks and the sever didn’t understand that we were on a timeline. There was too much talk and felt everything moved too slowly, which would have been great at dinner, but not for lunch. Otherwise everything was with the $$

First time at a vegan/vegetarian restaurant. Food was very tasty and delicious! Burger special was delicious! Stuffed mushrooms were yummy! Caprese salad was average, small for $16! Decor is beautiful! Service was excellent! And the washroom was very clean! Little pricey, but definitely would recommend this restaurant!

Hello,

I had the COUNTRY SCRAMBLE. Sadly, there wasn't anything 'country' about it.

It was a large bowl of poorly drained scrambled tofu, with barely any smoked mushroom “bacon”, and two tiny pieces of focaccia toast. Half an avocado was the only saving grace. Not worth it for the price.

I've been to Planta many times and have always left happy and full. This time, however, I just left...

Service was ok. We had a reservation for 6pm and waited at the hostess desk for almost 10 min as they were taking quite a while to site the two other couples that were ahead of us. Finally when we reached the hostess she proceeded to tell us that there were no menus available and we waited another few minutes for someone else to take us to our table and we received menus without delay. Our server was great. The food descriptions in the menu seemed inaccurate once we actually received the item. A lot of items are deep fried, I would have thought that a restaurant called Planta would have more fresh items than deep fried and there was no mention on the menu that any of the items would be deep fried. We were disappointed. Flavour was ok. Seems like more of a trendy restaurant versus one that boasts high quality food and service.

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!

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!

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.

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
