This place is delicious. For those who want great, hearty, healthy vegan food that isnt imitating meat dishes (ie no vegan "cheesesteak" here), nor serving vegan food that tastes like cowfeed (ie no lettuce and carrot entrees). However, I'm a poor student and loved the byob with *no corkage fee*. They need to reinstitute it, pretty please. I honestly might go elsewhere now because there are so many awesome places in NYC, and probably stop so avidly recommending them to people, that was a selling point. Sorry, Angelica! You're totally yummy and rad still, with reasonable food prices.

I'd been excited to try this place out, but was really disappointed with the food and service. I will not be going back

I have loved this place since the old days and I seldom even bring wine but I just noticed they have instituted a corkage fee! Bummer.

In our failed attempt to go to the NYC Vegetarian Food Festival on April 3rd, we opted for a better option than waiting in a mile-long line in the cold. We decided to have a good hearty meal at Angelica Kitchen. We always let our stomachs lead the way and hardly ever go wrong. Angelica Kitchen is an unpretentious and low-key spot, with a nice ambiance for casual dining. We were in a large group, there were nine of us, and we could carry on a decent conversation and hear what everyone was saying. That was actually unexpected, especially because they had a full house for lunch. Their Full Menu and Daily Specials (pdfs) were pretty extensive and made it hard to choose, a nice problem to have. Many of their dishes are made with whole grains and mild spices that remind me a lot of Alcaparra, a macrobiotic restaurant in São Paulo, Brazil I frequently dined at when I first became a vegetarian. Dishes are more earthy and less flamboyant than most other popular vegan restaurants and there are plenty of gluten-free options. Everything we had was delicious with the exception of one dish or other that weren’t as good as the rest, but that doesn’t mean they were bad. The highlights of our meal were the two specials we ordered —Sgt. Tempeh’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and Still Special— and the Olé Man Seitan, which hit the spot and satisfied my craving since our visit to Quintessence. All dishes we nicely seasoned and hearty portions, perfect for the hungry travelers at our table. The Dashi & Noodles were ok, the broth was nice and flavorful but the noodles didn’t absorb any of it so they tasted a little flat. As for the desserts, the kanten was light and fresh. The tiramisu was nice and rich, as one should be. And the cheesecake was tasty too, but was more a tofu pudding pie and didn’t have that cheesecake density and texture I was hoping for. All in all, we had a great meal and good time. We definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a whole foods dining experience.

Thyis is one of the best vegetarian/vegan restaurants in the area. Pricing is in line with what you would pay in Whole Foods for takeout. The food is tasty, well prepared, attractive and the menu has a great variety. I especially appreciate the options to put together your own "bowl" or "plate" from various dishes as well as the BYOB policy. Highly recommended.

I love Angelica Kitchen! It is delicious healthy food. It is a little expensive but definitely worth it if you want a variety of healthy interesting dishes. I have only done take out, but the staff is friendly and helpful. I recommend this place!!
