Excellent family dinner at Planta after the Ballet.
Good choice of dishes and especially loved the cauliflower tots and pizza. Mocktails for children were excellent. Everyone in the family was happy with this choice of restaurants.

I was very pleased with my experience at Planta in terms of the food but was very disappointed with the trouble to honour reservations. My friend and I rushed over to Planta to ensure we would be there on time for our reservation but were kept waiting for 25 minutes before we were seated...what is the point of a reservation then? Every person who walked in ended up waiting an average of 25-35 minutes for their table, this was extremely disappointing.

We love Planta for its delicious vegan food, friendly service and energy. It’s a very safe place for my wife, who has an extreme fish and seafood allergy, to eat.

Loved all the vegan options but found the seating too close together and the music not suitable for a dinner. More of a casual lunch spot, however, quite pricey.

Wonderful Food! Everything on the menu looked tempting so....we tried a couple of the smaller plates to share as appetizers. For the mains, we tried different pizzas - both were excellent. Very flavourful and nice chewy thin crust. Service was attentive, just right!

I LOVED this place. It is an absolute gem for vegans and vegetarians alike. I told my friends this was the first time i could look at a gourmet/mainstream food menu and basically order anything. The food was varied and diverse, artistically presented, was flavourful and felt so wholesome. I loved everything we ordered from the cauliflour and stuffed mushroom and kale caesar appetizers to the pizzas to the chocolate mousse dessert.

It became a bit noisy as the night wore on, but I would tolerate almost anything to not have bacony, fishy, meaty smells around me. Please open one in Scarborough!

If you are vegan - you may enjoy Planta.
Regardless, not the most satisfying food and experience, for example - lox bagel = grocery store quality bagel, hummus and a few veggies for $$

Drinks are great, tacos and pizza the best pick from looking around

We had the cheese plate to start, and this really ruined the entire experience. For $25 this is an insulting joke. Maybe 3 tbsp of cheese, a giant pile of mustard, a few tiny pickles and some dabs of applesauce, all to be consumed with four little crostini. The mains have become very boring and unimaginative. Pizzas are wildly overpriced given their simplicity. I don't think I will be going back. I can go to Awai for the same price and receive far better food which is creative and satisfying for the same price level.

Upon arrival we have been told “we are behind schedule and it will be a 20-25 minute wait”.. this was the first time we had to wait this long even though we had a reservation! The food was okay, not as great as some other vegan restaurants in my opinion.
They tried to make up the wait with a free appetizer which was a nice gesture! Overall was not a place to return back to.

Very very tasty. Last Tuesday was the second time I went in a fortnight. Had the same dish again: Habibi salad. The second time, also had the crispy tofu appetizer. BOTH TIMES I was VERY thirsty for hours afterwards, which was unfortunate since I was out shopping and walking. 4:30 pm...still thirsty when I got home and slugged back a load of water!
The waitress didn't listen to our order (which I gave twice), so she didn't bring my salad, only my friend's $29 charcuterie plate as our "second course". At 1:20 and after only one piece of tofu, I had to ask my friend several times to please share her plate with me. To her credit, the waitress did expedite my salad.
The waitress forgot my friend's wine: we had to ask for it after she brought the second/charcuterie plate. My friend had wanted to enjoy two glasses of wine during our lunch (and I wasn't drinking so I didn't care), so the resto lost out this time lol
Finally since we had shared the appetizer, the waitress brought only 1 bill. Lazy and irritating since my friend spent way more than me (the bill came to $85) and it was confusing to sort out who owed what.

Nonetheless, the food was absolutely tasty. My friend plans to bring her husband to the resto. I trust the tastiness wasn't partly or mainly due to the salt :) I am very health-oriented and avoid salt when I can, so I'm sensitive to salt when there's a load of salt at a Thai restaurant or whatever. I guess that vegan doesn't mean healthy....?
I sent the resto an email about the salt a few days ago, but received only an acknowledgement, nothing further hence this review.

I am vegetarian and had been looking forward to dining at Planta. Unfortunately the restaurant did not offer me an enjoyable experience. The wait staff were friendly however service was incredibly rushed which made it difficult to relax. It felt like we were dining at a fast food joint. The food was bland with little flavour. My stuffed mushrooms were rubbery with a mushy filling and the Thai salad lacked spice and texture.

This is an amazing vegetarian/vegan restaurant with gourmet dishes. Everything was delicious and fresh. We arrived on time and our table was not ready. The hostess recommended we have a seat at the bar, but there was no room. They seated us within 15 minutes and made up for it with an amuse bouche free of charge. The service is very slow. I don’t know if it’s slow in the kitchen, the bar or there’s not enough waiters/waitresses but the drinks were really slow coming out and out meal seemed to last a long time. We didn’t get everything we ordered until 2 hours after we arrived. Overall, a great place but they need to pick up the pace.
