Still doing great! As a committed carnivore this vegetarian / vegan restaurant is very good, the menu is creative and the chef talented.

We went for breakfast and had the most delicious and inspired salad with grilled apricots, manouri and pesto. Coconut dhal was also excellent. Kids scrambled eggs on toast was generous and devoured quickly. The Bloody Marys also went down a treat. Good value and relaxed atmosphere.

I hadn't been to Wildflower before, having been somewhat put off by it being located in the tiringly hip Peckham Levels. However, what a wonderful find, so glad we went and will be definitely coming back again. The food was very, very good; simply prepared with great combinations of flavour and texture. Everyone in our group was of the same opinion. Dishes can be shared with eight mains being more than enough for our party of six. Small choice of puddings but all exquisite and good choice of wines. Price wise, fantastic value. Oh and the service was excellent, understated but attentive. We went on a Saturday evening and the music cranked up at 9.30pm. This was made clear before booking so no issue for us but worth considering if you are looking for somewhere quiet or intimate

Wildflower is lovely in so many ways, and I really enjoyed my meal. Some of the plates could've been a little larger/ more complex for the money paid forward, but some were perfect. All in all, a great experience, but not one for if you have a huge appetite! Its kind of sharing plates and picking.

Nice venue, easy to find on the Levels. Thursday night, not busy. We were catching up with vegan friends and the food was amazing - easy, filling and great value. The drinks were also great. However the waitress forgot to process our order, so we waited ages and the music was ridiculously loud, so hard to talk.

For a vegetarian restaurant there was little flex for vegan.

We were a little shocked when the bill arrived

A great gem in Peckham Levels. The food is healthy and fresh, and the oat milk iced coffee was a perfect pick me up for Saturday brunch. Will definitely be coming back for more.

The food was delicious and seasonal, but the portions were quite small (a plate of asparagus contained exactly 4 delicious but thin asparagus)

We went for brunch and he service was non existent, we therefore felt the service charge was unfair. The food was good however.

I'd been planning to go to Wildflower for a while and finally arranged it for my husband's birthday brunch. As a vegan I was excited to find a local vegetarian restaurant.

The staff were very attentive and helpful, perhaps a little slow at times but we were in no rush!
The food was tasty and filling and there was something for everyone, including the kids. We were a little disappointed, however, that we were not allowed to substitute items on the brunch menu, especially as when we ordered the place was fairly quiet.

The decor is beautiful - light, airy and fresh. Its a big space too and I liked the outdoor area. Peckham Levels itself feels exciting and buzzy and I hope the restaurant does well.

This restaurant is too dark, it feels like a brothel, I want to see what is on my plate when I eat it.
As for the food, I felt as if everything had been taken out of huge jars of brine, very sour. My friends and I got all the vegan sharing plates which narrows my view of the menu slightly as I would have liked to try some of the individual dishes but from what we ate it was if we were in the Swedish winter. The saving grace was the soy cabbage which was delicious. The swede fondue is trying to hard, the swede mixture tasted of my mums Sunday lunch soup, I expect more. The potatoes were again retrieved from my Sunday lunch time dinner table, meh.
I ordered a iced tea cocktail which tasted like badly made homemade lemonade. I sent it back and ordered an old fashioned which was on the other scale of alcoholic, it nearly killed me but at least I could start to enjoy myself.
My sister and her friend got the vegan chocolate brownie and ice-cream, it was musky and earthy, as if a person had just stubbed out a Lambert and Butler on my tongue, again, trying to hard.
The service was good yet there was so many plates on the table when we finished she had to do the job in two legs, use slates or big chopping boards maybe?
The ambience was dry, there is no need for a DJ in a restaurant, I know ones in 'Peckham levels' but again trying too hard.
Value was ok, we were surprised that it came to £6.90 each for the food, then I recalled what I actually ate, 4 potatoes and some leaves.
Overall this is was yuppy show in all its glory. A vegan and vegetarian try hard bar.
This restaurant has some good intentions, but they are all in huge jars of vinegar and brine, slowly tuning into prunes.
We walked through Peckham levels, shuddered and went straight to spoons. aAH.

My new favourite place in London. I've had brunch and dinner here & both meals have been outstanding. Each dish celebrates a different vegetable and is packed with flavour, showing that you don't need meat for a delicious meal!

I can not recommend this restaurant enough. I’ve told everyone that will listen and even those that won’t. The food is sensational. If you’re a vegetarian, go and eat there. If you’re not, go and eat there anyway! The service is at the right level, non-intrusive but present, thank you Albert. Have yourself a negroni and the baked sweet potato, and harissa cauliflower if they’re on that day. Actually just eat all of it.

We've been here for brunch a few times and it's been great. So we were really looking forward to an evening meal there with friends, having talked up the place so much.

Sadly though the dinner menu really isn't that great.

Don't get me wrong, what's there is is well prepared, but it lacks substance. Basically some carbs and protein - and portion sizes are small. No option either to order bread or sides to bulk it out a bit. Not surprising that the potatoes layer was sold out by 7.30pm.

I've been a veggie for over 30 years, so this isn't coming from a snide meat eater - but you really need to work on the balance of dishes and the food groups you're using. Would it kill to use some tofu, nuts, beans, lentils, paneer, cheese, potatoes, seitan etc?

Have a look at Terre-a-Terre in Brighton for some research!

All for delicate flavour and fresh ingrediants, but I don't expect to be hungry after eating at a restaurant!

We were so beautifully surprised to find Wildflower. The food was inventive yet authentic and utterly delicious. The atmosphere was chilled and positive. We had my 6 year old daughter with us and she was treated with great kindness. We will be back often! Thank you 🙏

We had the MOST incredible supper - between two we ordered 6 small plates which was plenty, but then we were tempted by the Vegan brownie. The wine was great and reasonably priced. We had 6 glasses of wine, 6 plates and it was £35 each. AMAZING value.
