    You have got to be kidding me!

    The reviews for Candle 79 are 4 stars? So when my wife and I ventured there we had high hopes for excellent vegan fare. Wrong! The food seems universally bland. As if prepared at a school training for sous chefs. The cauliflower soup tasteless. Was cau

    Good food, but service a problem

    Great place for flavorful vegetables -- if you like kale (I do), this is definitely your place. Even meat-eaters will find food they like here.. Seitan dishes particularly good. Seasonings a strength! Here's the minus -- service, which used to be goo

    Even Vegans Can Get Fat....

    The reasons why people become vegitarian are as many as are vegitarians. One fact that's undeniable is that being vegitarian doesn't keep people from getting fat or having heart attacks. As for me, I'm an avid cyclist (1,300 MPY) and strong advocate of

    Incredible food and table service; shame about the hostesses!

    The food and table service is truly outstanding at Candle 79, and keeps me going; even though the hostesses (at least the two I see there regularly) at the front are unpleasant. Couldn't be more contradictory to the attentive care from all the waiters (in

    Excellent for vegans and omnivores

    Great atmosphere and lighting. Cocktails (with and without alcohol) and wine list impressive. Food was inventive and delicious and impressed my very non-vegan guests so much they said they would go back again! I am not a fan of seitan (Satan according

    Great food but poor service

    This place was a great choice on paper. Arrived last Sunday right on time for dinner with a couple of friends but had to wait for 10 mins. So we ordered cocktails and the drinks never arrived even after we were seated fo 25 mins !! The food was tasty but
