This was a great place for a fun, lively and delicious night out with the girls. The food was great, nice selection and very tasty. Will definitely go back.

While I enjoyed the food, I was disappointed with the service. I had a reservation for 8:45pm and was seated at about 10pm. The bar was also uncomfortably full of other guests waiting for their reservations.

Hostess was pretty abrupt when she saw we had a stroller. Otherwise staff were fine but slow service in general. And they forgot one of the dishes we’d ordered which was a shame.

The reason I have given this restaurant is 2 stars because my dish was really not very good and the portion size was very small. I ordered the cavatelli. When it came, I was very disappointed. The portion was tiny - It was almost less than a cup of pasta. It was smothered in a green sauce - too much sauce. The mushroom garnish was fine. The dish cost $24 - are you kidding me - Pasta for $24 and less than a cup full for a serving? I was hungry after having eaten my lunch - I needed twice the portion to be satisfied and I am not a great big fatty either. My friend ordered the Planta burger and he was happy with it. I don't think I will go back. The food is expensive. I love vegan food but I think Planta is a bit of a rip-off.

Although I like the concept of Planta the food fell short. I ordered the Thai noodle entre that was served cold- had I know that I would not have ordered it. Should be indicated on the menu. The brownie we had for dessert was stale. Also the prices are over the top. It’s also incredibly loud making it impossible to have a conversation. Best part was our server -can’t remember his name but he was a Kiwi/Aussie. He was top notch! For that reason alone he made our experience okay.

Went with my wife for our anniversary, we had to wait over 45-60 minutes for a table after we already made reservations. A good chunk of the items we ordered weren't available. Overall bad experience.

We made a reservation for 8:30 on Saturday night. Unfortunately many others had similar plans. There was a crowded chaotic entryway and a lack of organization. We were told we would be called (on cell) in 10 minutes when our table was ready. 30 minutes after standing in the very crowded bar area ( and still waiting for drinks ordered when we arrived) a hostess found us asking for my first name. The food is great and our server was attentive and pleasant. Noise level is high as the ‘fake’ DJ plays with her hair and stares at her computer all night while playing a playlist of pseudo dance music. My daughter is vegan so we tend to seek out restaurants like Planta.

Our reservation was at 945 and I had confirmed that afternoon that we would be there. We arrived at 10:03 and were told that our table had been given away. We were offered to wait in the bar which we did but could not get a server or bartender's attention to get a drink. We went back to reception and wait there. We were not sat at a table until 10:20. We were pretty disappointed by then.

Had reservations for 8:15, didn't get seating until 9:00. Server barely came by, we waited 15 minutes before anyone came to refill our empty water glasses. Our food came out, it was the wrong order, didn't get main course until 10:30. While I agree, the food is great, the service was quite awful - no conversation at all with our server either to make up for it.

Food can be hit or miss depending on the dish you order. Good but overpriced. Feels like they are trying too hard to say look at me...I’m going to make these vegan dishes a tad more complicated and pretentious, give you small portions and charge you more. That being said, two out of the four dishes we shared were memorable. Wish it was more.

Had a great time at Planta. Yes, first of all the food is fantastic. I'm not vegan or vegetarian but the menu is so great you don't even think about what you're 'missing'. The staff though. The staff is what really puts this place over the top. Really friendly and fun front people and our server was down-to-earth and was nice enough to laugh at our jokes. The decor is fresh and clean with high ceilings. Got a bit loud later with a DJ starting up, but to be expected on a Friday night as 9 o'clock approached and a different crowd started to filter in.

Go. Just go.

We just cant get enough of this place. Made reservations for 2 on saturday night to celebrate my birthday. Was greeted with a warm smile and friendly attitude by Milly who showed us our table. This was not our first time at planta and we were quickly recognized by our amazing server Erin. She just knows how to treat guests and is super friendly and very knowledgeable. If we can choose our server it would always be Erin. BTW the food is awsome and the atmosphere is fantastic.
Thank you Erin and Milly for making my birthday that much more enjoyable.

Hostess wasn't friendly. I wasn't greeted with a smile abd barely looked at as if I had gotten there at the wrong time, but I had a reservation for my birthday.

While I was sitting on the chair by the bar waiting for my party I was kicked twice by the girl with the headset, who only apologized the second time she kicked me.

My server was amazing, whose nane I forgot but she privided outstanding service and even greated me by my name and wished me happy birthday.

Food was exceptional. The only reason I give it a fair overall rating was because we had a reservation for 8:15 and didn’t get seated until 9:40. The server took a while to get to us and drinks took a very long time to get. They did however give us a round of drinks and a couple free appetizers to accommodate. The mojotos were amazing.

I love eating out with my friends at Planta. The food is usually good and exceptional.However, the last time we came was on Saturday around 6 pm and it was very busy. Although the appetizers were very delicious, the crust of both pizzas we ordered was so dry, blunt since the tomato sauce was not added not enough to spice the dish. And I ordered a cold Rose Capuchino and I strongly believe that the plant-based milk that was used in preparation was definitely expired, since it tasted so sour. Guys, you disappointed me.

Beautiful restaurant! The service was great and enthusiastic staff. I’m not vegan and the menu was approachable. I left feeling stuffed. The price is on the higher end but the quality and prep makes it justifiable. Save room for dessert! Chia passion fruit is the bomb.

Had to do fifty words.


Old pirates, yes, they rob I
Sold I to the merchant ships
Minutes after they took I
From the bottomless pit
But my hand was made strong
By the hand of the Almighty
We forward in this generation
Triumphantly
Won't you help to sing
These songs of freedom?
'Cause all I ever have
Redemption songs
