Wonderful food and great service. I had the Rueben and sweet potato fries and both were excellent. My fiancé had the Hummus plate with baba ganoush and thought it was great too.

I am trying to transition to better eating so I looked up a few vegetarian restaurants. My visit to Red Lentil was a pleasant experience. I informed the server that this was my first time and ask for her suggestions. The cauliflower was recommended and was a great experience. I am not sure what I enjoyed more, the fact that... More

I can't belive the vegetarian food can be so tasty and good,even healthy. This restaurant has everything good here ...the best appetizer is gobi Manchurian and the best Entree is Shepherd's pie. Great. The services are really good too. Ooo and the desert...the carrot cake is great.

We recently enjoyed dinner at Red Lentil. They offer a good range of entrees, many with tofu or tempeh as key elements. We enjoyed Jamaican Jerk tempeh the most, with sweet potatoes and a delicious sauce. Service was just OK, but the place is small enough that we could easily flag down a server. Prices are higher than we would've... More

We had a great time here with family and friends! Wait staff were relaxed and so friendly. The portions were large and the food healthy for sure. However, we live in Vermont so we know that Vegan food can be made tastier. Salads were fresh but not all that tasty: kind of boring. Main dishes were good but not great.... More

Very popular local restaurant with wonderful menu. My favorite is the sweet potato quesadilla. Restaurant has limited seating, so go early to get table. Parking can also be tough since many shops and restaurants in this two block area.

Service was a bit slow, possibly because the restaurant was full. Staff was very friendly and the food was delicious. Portions were a good size. Dessert not needed by our group of four. It was a real delight to find so many creative options that even a non-vegan could enjoy.

Description
Red Lentil is unique to Watertown and the surrounding area. We provide a warm atmosphere in which to enjoy creative and globally inspired vegetarian and vegan foods. Our aim is to please every customer that walks through our door.

Our menu items are of the finest quality and are treated as such. They are prepared with sensitivity and care. Daily specials are offered at lunch, dinner, and brunch. They are built around produce that is currently in season in New England, which allows our chefs to exercise their creative whims.

We strive to meet the needs of special diets, offering gluten-free, raw, and macrobiotic selections. We take great care to avoid any traces of gluten in our gluten-free dishes as we recognize the severity of celiac disease. We are committed to having special equipment for these offerings.

Our dessert line is baked in-house to ensure freshness and features a wide range of vegan and gluten-free dessert options.
