Loved the variety in the combination of dishes on offer. With no pasta dish in sight!
Will definitely be coming back with my carnivore husband who enjoyed it too.

It was wonderful, the food was inventive and exciting. Even the meat-eaters are planning on coming again. I will dream of the kale & samphire tempura for a long time.

Located in Peckham levels, Wildflower is a real gem. We sat outside on the terrace- great green space with a lovely ambience perfect for a date night.
Service was friendly and knowledgeable, our waitress happily explained the concept and dishes and helped us order the right amount of food.
The food speaks for itself, fresh, beautiful and super tasty. The chef is clearly talented and this is a must for everyone. Vegetarian or not.
Will most defiantly be back!

We loved the location and were pleasantly surprised by the whole set-up. We liked the tapas style dishes which were explained well to us by the waiting staff. We liked the the way the tables were arranged - we could have a conversation without having to shout but at the same time, there was a really good atmosphere. Our only fear is that Wildflower might be spoilt by its own success and turned into a bland conventional restaurant!

Took my wife, two children and a girlfriend for brunch on Sunday 19 August; brunch was delicious and drinks were great too!

The Burrata dish was simply sublime and the rest of the food was exceptionally good; it showcased what is best about vegan food.

The meal was good value; service was good but could have been better.

Very funky restaurant in the Peckham levels, a converted multi-storey car park (I may well once have parked my car where we sat to eat). Imaginative menu, limited wine list, fresh ingredients. Service slightly sharp, but OK as these things go these days.

Food great. Just a bit disappointed that the waitress told us the kitchen was closed when we asked about desserts. And then when we argued that the brownies and affogato were surely not made to order, she backtracked and said 2 out of 3 desserts could be made by non kitchen staff. Was a bit lazy.

My friend and I went here on Saturday night after he read a rave review in Time Out.

We were greeted in a friendly and polite way and asked if we would prefer to sit outside and the waitress said she had already reserved us a place there if preferred. This is “outside” and almost in a covered terrace area, of the main restaurant section and felt nicer and more atmospheric.

We were seated and asked if we had visited before, we hadn’t, and told the menu was small plates and they recommend between 4 - 6 dishes and that 5 is usually just right. We decided to plump for this and including dessert and two cocktails each were very full but not in an overly uncomfortable way.

We ordered the sourdough bread - made locally in Peckham - baba ganoush, onion bhajjis, hispi cabbage, grilled baby gem with blue cheese dressing and walnuts and grezzina and romana courgettes. All the food was delicious and each dish seemed to surpass the previous. To end we had the lemon posset with orange shortbread (me) and chocolate brownie (my friend).

To drink we had an Aperol Spritz each and to end we had the recommended strawberry Bellini (using a homemade syrup).

The service was excellent and really helpful, polite and friendly.

The setting was really interesting and especially with the trains rolling by too.

The bill came to around £45 pp including service which we thought was really reasonable as that was five dishes, bread, two cocktails pp and dessert.

We would definitely recommend and return.

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.

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.
