I ended up here 3 times in 2 days so I had a lot of menu items. I can’t say enough good about this restaurant. From the ambiance to the presentation everything was spot on. The staff is lovely and personable and very accommodating. My only negative comment is the kelp Caesar was inedible, in my humble opinion. I have a feeling this wasn’t a typical
situation. It was so salty that after a few bites I just couldn’t eat it and I really wanted to! I had one of the pizzas again and it was excellent as it had been the day before. I tried several appetizers and another salad as well. All excellent. I tried 2 desserts the cheesecake and the chocolate terrarium. I found them passable but in my humble opinion not on par with the caliber of the food. I will definitely be back and will give the South Beach location a try in the next few weeks. Planta thanks for making a plant based life look enviable to the meat eaters of the world!

We made a reservation for 730 and arrived on time
We were seated at 750, even though there were empty tables, even empty tables for three (our party size) that remained empty our whole stay

Don’t bother with the cocktails. Pretentious description and price without justification in taste. Fried mushrooms were good but more like calamari than the chicken it’s described as. Nice touch on the birthday cookies.

My 12:30 reservation wasn’t ready upon arrival - we sat at the bar for what we thought were going to be a few minutes / it ended up being almost a half hour. We ordered several dishes to share from appetizers to mains. They brought everything at the same time and just put it on our small table. Not the best experience I have had there. Will think about going back.

Second time at this location and still experienced the same issues. We had a reservation for 8:30pm and were seated 25 minutes after. What is the point of a reservation if you still have to wait a long time for a table. Furthermore, the appetizers arrived quickly, however, the main courses took over 45 minutes which I find to be unreasonable for a vegan restaurant where most dishes don’t require a long cooking time. Our waiter mistakenly punched in the wrong order and my friend didn’t get her food at the same time as us. We understand that mistakes happen and they did bring free fries for the wait but, like I mentioned before, we had already been waiting 45 minutes for our meal and by now it was already close to 10pm. This seemed very unreasonable to me given that their prices are not cheap and this restaurant competes with those in the area which do not experience these issues.

I made my reservation very far in advance and requested an intimate table for my celebration dinner. Unfortunately, I was seated in the middle of the dining room in a high-traffic area. I couldn't help but notice that the tables at the back, which I would have preferred, were booked...but I wonder if they also booked mid-august and got the table before me or if there's some preferential treatment based on the clientele. I was quite disappointed with the table and discouraged to find out that the special requests portion of the Open Table app was veritably pointless.

They managed to take some of the most common ingredients and turned them into award winning plates! Great job! We also loved the relaxing, but fun atmosphere! Everyone was friendly and helpful... except only for the girl in charge for the seating: she could work on being a bit more friendly - she’s not offering a great first impression of the place.

Our reservation was for 3 people and were seated at a two table seat. I had asked on the booking to get a little desert brought out in the specific section, and it wasn’t. Our server changed midway and the food came a bit late. There is construction on the outside so we sat further into the restaurant but the lighting is a bit dim. Their portions could be a bit more. But yummy for plant based!

This restaurant in a trendy upscale neighborhood is a vegans dream! No worries, everything is plant based. The only problem is trying to narrow down your order. Everything sounded delicious. Our waitress was most helpful when asked her favorites. I tend to order something I wouldn't make myself at home. We started out with the caprese salad light and flavorful. I ordered the eggplant lasagna which was prepared to perfection. The skin was crispy but the dish was creamy and rich in flavor. My husband ordered the Habibi salad and the split pea fritters were a nice twist on falafal. We had to try the gelato and it did not disappoint. The seasonal flavor was blueberry and basil. An interesting yet surprisingly delicious combination. Our waitress also offered complimentary truffles recognizing a fellow foodie. We had so much food but never felt stuffed which is the beauty of a great vegan meal! I offered my compliments to the chefs and the waitress said what they do back there in the kitchen is truly art. Indeed!

Went for a birthday and I told the waiter it was his birthday and he said no problem. He later came out with a cake and later on I saw it on my bill.
I know some restaurants do charge for the cake, however, I would have liked to have been told as well as then maybe I could have chosen what cake I wanted rather than him showing up with the birthday cake.

We were overall underwhelmed by the food. The menu seemed inspired so we were expecting it to be delicious and of the 9 dishes we ate, 3 were very good and the others just good. Not worth the hefty price tags.

Amazing place, outstanding vegan food. Great to visit with family and children as well.

Waiters were a bit slow picking up empty plates from our table, which was a bit annoying. Other than that they were very knowledgable and good ambassadors of the brand/product.

Will definitely be back and always recommend to all.

Food was amazing and the atmosphere very beautiful. The server was very pleasant and knowledgeable. The only negative thing is that we were at lunch, obviously working corporate folks and the sever didn’t understand that we were on a timeline. There was too much talk and felt everything moved too slowly, which would have been great at dinner, but not for lunch. Otherwise everything was with the $$

First time at a vegan/vegetarian restaurant. Food was very tasty and delicious! Burger special was delicious! Stuffed mushrooms were yummy! Caprese salad was average, small for $16! Decor is beautiful! Service was excellent! And the washroom was very clean! Little pricey, but definitely would recommend this restaurant!

Hello,

I had the COUNTRY SCRAMBLE. Sadly, there wasn't anything 'country' about it.

It was a large bowl of poorly drained scrambled tofu, with barely any smoked mushroom “bacon”, and two tiny pieces of focaccia toast. Half an avocado was the only saving grace. Not worth it for the price.

I've been to Planta many times and have always left happy and full. This time, however, I just left...

Service was ok. We had a reservation for 6pm and waited at the hostess desk for almost 10 min as they were taking quite a while to site the two other couples that were ahead of us. Finally when we reached the hostess she proceeded to tell us that there were no menus available and we waited another few minutes for someone else to take us to our table and we received menus without delay. Our server was great. The food descriptions in the menu seemed inaccurate once we actually received the item. A lot of items are deep fried, I would have thought that a restaurant called Planta would have more fresh items than deep fried and there was no mention on the menu that any of the items would be deep fried. We were disappointed. Flavour was ok. Seems like more of a trendy restaurant versus one that boasts high quality food and service.

The beverage menu had mylko items but when ordering the items were not available. I think the server should have mentioned it when we sat down to avoid customers spending time to decide on their beverage only to have to decide again because the menu didn't indicate the item wasn't available nor did the server say as such or have the menu reprinted.

Outstanding quality meal, really one of the best vegan/vegetarian meals we've eaten at worldwide. Both the watermelon poke and the coconut ceviche were outstanding as appetizers, and the avocado lime tartar and kelp Caesar were both very popular with all of us.

The ambiance is upbeat and informal, but (particularly in the summer with the front façade open) not too noisy.

The service was very attentive without being overbearing.

All in all a perfect evening!

I rarely go to a vegetarian restaurant but we specifically chose this place to celebrate a friend's birthday and she is vegetarian. I was not expecting much and so I was blown away! I was immediately drawn to the modern chic decor as my favourite colour is green. But most of all, the food was phenomenal. I didn't know that vegan food could be so good and so filling. I would definitely come back again!
