Planta was opened with the purpose of creating delicious food that promotes environmental sustainability. Under Chef David Lee, Planta aimed at filling a void in the market of upscale, full service, plant-based dining options. The restaurant's vision is to celebrate innovative cuisine in a beautiful environment without the use of any animal products.
There’s more to responsible plant-based eating than just taking animals off the plate and our commitment to using high-quality products from ethical suppliers provides the foundation for our chefs to be proud of the food they serve.
We eat a plant based diet so coming here was a must. Everything we had was great. We ordered a salad that contained cilantro and didn’t enjoy it. Our waiter Michal replaced it for us with one he enjoys and it was perfect. He also spent time with us to point out everything that was or could be made gluten free.
Our servers were excellent as was the food and ambience.
While we had to wait for our reserved seat in a drafty entranceway the food and service once seated made up for this situation. No explanation was given.
The valentines menu was a little limited, service was great!
Terrible experience, food and service was awful and overpriced.
Lovely dinner on Valentines. Staff was very attentive and friendly
The food was delicious! The planta burger lives up to the hype and was well worth the enthusiasm. Servers were incredibly attentive and kind, even though it was incredibly busy, our food and drinks arrived in a very timely manner.
The Friday evening we went to Planta for a Winterlicious meal the restaurant was humming. It was nice to see that it is so popular but it was a bit noisy for a senior citizen like myself. The three of us did, however, thoroughly enjoy our dinner. Our server, a lovely young woman, was solicitous and efficient, and the food was tasty. Only the veggie burger did not live up to expectations. I much prefer a Beyond Meat burger.
Overall, our evening was a success and we look forward to our next visit.
Consider carpets to control the noise? Apart from that, very happy.
Great spot, awesome staff, better food, kinda pricey but it’s for a nice occasion.
Love the location and modern decor. Perfect for a girl's night out.
Great food and excellent(!!!) service from an awesome staff. Thanks for a great experience. We will definitely be back.
Amazing, delicious ...loved it & will go back!
Really tasty vegan options. However, I would not recommended the homemade iced tea - it is literally a black tea bag in cold water, and the “sweetener” given on the side is sugar which does not melt in cold water.
Great winterlicious deal
ate there with friends that are total vegetarians and they loved it!
This was my first time at Planta in Yorkville. We decided to give it a try for Winterlicious - everything was absolutely delicious so we will be back!
Food and service were amazing. Value was somewhat ok since we went during Winterlicious but the noise level was way too high. Thankfully we had a quieter table towards the back. The main area was as noisy as a school cafeteria.
We made a reservation for Winterlicious and had to wait 45 minutes for our table. After we were seated, we were rushed out of the restaurant within an hour. All that aside, the food was fantastic!
Despite having reservations, we were seated close to the door. It was freezing. The server brought out a heater and plugged it in between us and another party. They complained that they were cold, so the server placed the heater closer to them. We had to wear our coats throughout dinner. It took a really long time to get out order taken and we didn’t see a server often. We felt ignored. I still tipped 20% because it would have to be brutal for me to tip less, but I was disappointed. My daughter is a vegetarian and it was my first time taking her to a vegan restaurant. I really wanted it to be special.
The "Chicken" burger and Drop Me a Line non-alcoholic drink were fabulous. Ambience was hip on a Saturday afternoon during Winterlicious. Make reservations and show up on time. They are popular and get very busy.
Enjoyed the food, ambience and the service was friendly and prompt.
Wishing I'm Vegan but I know that I can't convert 100%. Must try!
Def an IG type of restaurant. Everything looks chic and has a gold accent.
Made a reservation for Winterlicious (lunch) to do a bridesmaid proposal. Some of my girls were a bit hesitant since it's vegan but they were impressed with the experience and food.
They seated 2 of my girls out of 6 even though we were running 20-30 mins late. (Darn you TTC subway closure). I'm glad we didn't have to wait considering the restaurant at the time was full.
For $23, it was super worth it. We were stuffed by the end of it. For appetizer, I got the zucchini fritti - DELISH! So crispy and flavourful. Then I got the chicken mushroom burger for main and ooouu, flavours we're so robust. It looked like a simple dish but as soon as you bite into it, it's heaven. I got a salad instead of fries. My girls got fries and it looked so much better. My salad looked too basic but when I tried it, the dressing complemented the burger. It was perfect. Lastly, I got the chocolate tarte. I liked it but I wish I got the chocolate chip cookie topped with vanilla ice cream.. It was to die for.
The service was great. The hostess greeted us and brought us straight to our table. Our server looked like Mike Ross from Suits haha! He's super nice, attentive and always made sure that we were looked after. Constant refills too. He also told us that he's an actor on the side, pretty cool.
I highly recommend this restaurant. Great atmosphere, great service, and delicious food. Don't expect massive or super large portions. Just keep talking til you hit the 15 min mark then you won't even feel hungry ;)
PS: they have drinks as part of Winterlicious. Although, small portions!
Great place! Went there for the Winterlicious lunch menu and it was great value for 3 courses. Still thinking about the vegan cheesecake we had it was so so good
Went for winterlicious, and the food was great! Their food items make a vegan diet seem less intimidating to those who are unfamiliar with it/are frequent meat eaters.
Was absolutely delicious. We are definitely coming back.
We booked a table so we don’t have to wait but we still waited for 30 minutes and the receptionist was giving everyone an attitude and does not even smile
I had dinner on Friday with a party of 4. We tried the Winterlicious menu and I was happy with my choices. I had the artichoke dip as an appetizer, the planta burger and the chocolate tart. What stood out the most of the meal was the planta burger and the potato fries that it came with; the burger was beet based and was very tasty, not overly seasoned but just right. Most vegan burgers tend to be dry but this one was the opposite- it was juicy! I also enjoyed the chocolate tarte as it wasn't too sweet and the cocoa flavour was very present. Overall, I had a good experience!
1st Experience with Vegan food and it was surprisingly flavorful and good. Will definitely recommend
Very tasty and leaving you feel good about yourself after dining.
A gem in Yorkville neighbourhood. Nice, artsy, soothing decors in green. Great meal: best onion soup ever! Guilt free cheese cake, coffee with oat milk. I'm not a vegan but certainly can apprec the vegetable based dishes here. Wonderul and healthy. Fast, courtesous service. Love this place!
This was my wife's and my first vegan restaurant experience and we were really impressed with the food. We will be going back with our kids.
Service was great. Love the look of the restaurant. Food was veeeerrrrry average and portions weren't great. Still had a good time but wouldn't go back again.
The burger and fries were amazing and the New York cheesecake was unreal. Can’t comprehend how it’s all vegan - especially the cheesecake. Will return.
Reservations are always at least 10 mins late.
The food would’ve been amazing but everything was too over seasoned and salty unfortunately. Usually the food is always 100% and will definitely come back again!
Vibrant flavours and creative plating, genuinely friendly service, and stunning interiors.
Good selection for Winterlicious lunch. The desserts were great!
Everything was good. Then our server disappeared, never returned to the table to fill up on water etc.
The onion soup was very good but the mushroom burger was poor. The portion size of the cashew cheesecake was miniscule. I won't return to this Planta location.
