I can't believe how good this place is. Sit outside, order a plant gin and tonic. The fried plantains and plant cheese plate were crazy good. All their cheeses are made in house and they are dairy free and vegan. Wow! The Seitan chili con...More

We went with a vegan friend. Started with speciality cocktails, shared 3 apps: mushrooms, grilled beets and "cheese" plate. All delicious, but don't expect dairy cheese texture. Had a portobello steak with chard. Sauces on everything were superb. Finished with chessboard pie and peanut ice...More

So delicious. Peaceful ambiance. The bimbimbop bowl was amazing. Best all vegan food in Asheville. Nothing makes me happier than having a full menu of vegan dishes

My daughter and I were visiting from Orlando and came across this restaurant through happy cow. We don't really have a place exactly like this in Orlando (upscale/formal vegan) so it was a real pleasure. We went all out with appetizers, main courses, desert, wine...More

For some reason, when a friend picked this place out, I was afraid there wouldn't be enough menu options for the majority of our group (who aren't veg). But everyone was stuffed and loved their meals! My boyfriend and I split the maitaki mushrooms, the...More

Yes. Risotto is usually a safe bet. I'm a vegetarian who absolutely hates tempeh but the walnut crusted dish is delicious. Your wife is lucky to be married to a vegetolerant guy like you!
