We recently stayed overnight in Philadelphia. I have always wanted to try Vedge but could never get a table. Well, we finally got our chance! I went with my daughter and her friend so we were able to share a few things. We sat at...More

Vegan dining at it's finest. I went with four people, two of which are not vegan, and everyone was absolutely delighted with the meal. We ordered a bunch of dishes and shared (which I would recommend so you can try more things). So much creativity...More

I never knew vegetarian food could taste so good !! I was blown away by the flavors and the variety and presentation of the dishes. Also contrary to some other reviews, this was not expensive. A meal of this caliber actually seemed underpriced. Every dish...More

As vegetarians, we had very high expectations of the taste of the food and we found the food to be compensating for the fact there was no meat, instead of playing on the strength of the veganism. It was a good one time visit.

The food was excellent - both vegans and non-vegans will enjoy the combinations of flavors and creative preparations of vegetables. It is a bit pricey and the dishes are small, so be prepared. The carrot, which was so highly recommended, was actually our least favorite...More

I had the pleasure of eating at Vedge and had the best meal ever. As a vegan it is always a challenge to eat out, but not here! It’s refreshing to eat at a restaurant that features delicious vegan dishes, instead of having one vegan...More

At Vedge, each plate that we sampled at Vedge was beautifully presented. Fortunately, thankfully at Vedge, beauty is more than peel deep. Our food was prepared creatively and deliciously. Eggplant bracciola was truly phenomenal. The wood fired carrot was excellent. Three diners shared five plates...More

Start with two and, if you're enjoying yourselves and are not full, order some more. It comes relatively quickly.

The rooms are large with plenty of space between tables. I don't remember thinking it was loud at all. I enjoyed the atmosphere.
