I moved to NYC for this restaurant (no, really)- the food is amazing, the service is outstanding, the portions are HUGE, desert specials are always amazing. I wish there was a little bit more space for seating, there is usually a 30+ minute wait on weekend evening, and it sometimes gets cramped sitting close to other customers--but the food is so (so) worth it.

This place is absolutely amazing - my friends and I are rarely disappointed. Really expensive to go often, but for a special occasion, this place is just right. Try the Belgian beers!

I went here last night with my boyfriend and I LOVED it! I got the vegan chicken parm and while the vegan cheese, as always, is not perfect, the actual "chicken" was amazing!!! I would not have been able to tell that it was actually soy! So yummy...We also got a great vegan carrotcake taht was to die for! My boyfriend, on the other hand, was not so pleased. He is a devout omni and, adventurously, ordered his favorite food, philly cheesesteak, and was disappointed by the taste of the vegan version. I tried it and it wasn't bad, but I would still urge people who really want the taste of meat to go with their superb chicken dishes. Overall a great place for a great value (all dishes will feed you twice--they're huge!) I will definitely go bakc and you should all try it (even those of you vegans out there who are so skeptical of fake meats...)

I called in for pickup take-out and they told me 20 min. Arrived around that time and ended up waiting another 10-15! Thirty-five min is really unacceptable for take-out. The restaurant wasn't even full! I thought maybe the food would mollify me. The collard green roll was ok, but not that exciting or different from any other spring roll. The sweet chili sauce for dipping was incredible though! (i'm a sauce fiend.) I ordered the honey dijon chicken cutlet sandwich, which was ok, not that great, and the whole thing slipped and slided and fell apart while i was eating it. Admittedly, maybe I just didn't order the dishes that people have been raving about in reviews. The atmosphere seemed nice and people seemed in good spirits. The waitresses also seemed really accomodating from what I saw. But I also saw a number of customers come in and change their mind and leave when the heard how long the wait would be for food.

The restaurant was cramped w/chic atmosphere and the 45 min. wait was well worth it. This is FOOD 4 all and all 4 Vegans. Ab. Fabulous. Will go every week, as long as dates continue.

I stumbled upon this gem by accident. I was looking for a great vegetarian restaurant to take my mate to for his birthday. as you may have guessed he's a vegetarian. I had no clue as to where to go.I saw this place and decided to give it a try, now we go when ever we can get to the village. he loved it and i (who love my burgers) adore it. my favorite dishes are the mashed potatoes, the collard greens and the collard green rolls. OH MY GOD they put any oriental spring,egg or shrimp roll to shame. absolutely out rageously delectable. and the deserts are just as great. i had there version of a strawberry short cake and it was heaven. the ice cream is wonderful as well. and there is no dairy in anything. I would never have guessed All i can say is you have to get there try a little of every thing. My only complaint is that they need to expand it is quite small, but the staff is very nice they make you feel welcome. So go you won't be sorry, Oh and don't forget to take some of those collard green rolls home for later with the sauce for dipping, you'll be glad you did!

This vegan-friendly restaurant is hands-down my favorite and first choice whenever meat-eaters or non-meat eater friends come to visit. The service isn't always the best, but the food more than makes up for it in a thousand and one ways. The deserts are to die for - esp the peanut butter pies!
