Every time I eat at Angelica's I feel like a million bucks after. The food, service, and atmosphere is great. It's my staple restaurant to bring "out of towners" because it's cool enough for my punk friends, but it's not too freakish for the more conservative. Also, the communal table is a great idea for when you want to go for lunch or dinner on your own.

This is my favorite restaurant in NYC, and I am a very picky eater. I have taken my non-vegetarian friends there many times and they all asked to go back. That says a lot! You must try Angelica's Kitchen! Oh, and they only take cash, so run to the ATM before dining there.

I wouldn' t say this is the best vegetarian food I've ever had. After hearing mixed reviews, I finally tried it myself a few nights ago. I had the "build your own" plate with kidney beans, steamed veggies, and tempeh. It was very good, if nothing exciting, and I'd actually like to return to try some of the more interesting dishes. The environment was incrediblt pleasant and it was BYOB, which I love, so I'll definitely return. I must say that the burritos looked really good!

It's okay. Highly overrated. It serves as a flagship of vegetarianism and for that I am glad they exist, and have for so long. That said, however, vegetarianism and veganism have grown and matured to a much higher level than is offered at Angelicas. 10 years ago, Angelica would have been amazing, 5 years ago it would have been okay, and today, it's barely average. The food was ok at best (with exception of pretty tasty desserts). The food is moderately priced. and the staff was wicked nice. The atmosphere is great, the location even better. The food needs A LOT of work.

They sell day what seem like old muffins (sweet and savory) for 1.35--good bargain for a vegan. They also, strangely, ask for tip there, tho all the staff seems to do is hand over the food and take your money.

I travel to this place all the way from Westchester multiple times a month just for dinner. 'Nuff said.

I'm really surprised at the negatives reviews I'm reading. I've been a vegetarian for quite some time and have eaten at all the vegetarian places in the city and nothing beats angelica kitchen. To call it overpriced is ridiculous. Considering the fresh and tasteful ingredients that are used at the restaurant, I think the prices are very reasonable. And don't forget, all her ingredients are ORGANIC. You can't get an entree in nyc for 10 dollars. Give me a break. Not to mention the portions. They are huge portions and I usually get 2,3 meals out of a order of dragon bowl. And the staff are happy to pack it for you. The waitstaff are friendly and warm but not overtly so. The chili is more than superb and even my non vegetarian friends prefer it over their regular meat kind. It's fabulous. With all the new vegetarian/vegan restuarants opening AND going out of business everywhere in the city, it's no surprise that angelica's kitchen has been around for so long. I can only assume that the bad reviews were written by tourists or by non vegetarian who have never dined at a vegan, all organic restaurant before.
