Service was great; we had a friendly and informative server, and food came out in a timely manner. The edamame dumplings are to die for, and the butternut squash pizza was delicious. We tried several other entrees, and none failed to deliver! I don't always do well at places with all organic and farm to table ingredients because I worry I won't know what I'm ordering (let's face it, the ingredients on the menus often need to be googled if that's not your typical dietary choice), but there was little to no struggle here. Also, if you've never had an oat milk cappucino, you're missing out!

My husband and I frequent this location since there are a challenge finding vegan restaurants in the area, that has an open kitchen. The experience literally left a bad taste in our mouth and the one of the people sitting around us when I found 5 long pieces of long hair in our pizza. The women sitting next to me found hair in her Detox Retox Mimosa and the couple to the right of us were freaked out. We had already complained about the cleanliness of our dishes and how there was still food on our silverware, and they were dirty. The water was the only thing I felt ok with, but this place really needs some housekeeping. We are in the middle of a coronavirus, and not keeping up with housekeeping and cleanliness is the last thing a restaurant should have at this time. We used to love this place, but there needs to be a revamp or new training. I do not suggest it here. This experience really left a bad taste in our mouths

Though we had reservations, our table of three was placed next to the kitchen and cleaning area. The restaurant noise level was compounded by the kitchen noise.
The menu was outstanding and the wait staff delightful. Have to weigh the wonderful menu against the noise level and possible poor seating when making reservations for a business-oriented meeting.

The food is great for everyone, but especially for people who want to eat as healthy as possible. I love the turkey burger and the sweet potato hash is so delicious. I was disappointed that they removed goat cheese from the menu as that is an option for lactose intolerant people. The grass-fed burger is just as delicious as the turkey burger. Service is excellent. The only negative with the ambiance is that the two top tables are set so close together, it's actually hard to walk in between the tables to get to the seat. Also, with the tables so close together, when it's a full restaurant, it can be a little loud. Overall, I love that this restaurant cares about the source of the food, only uses the healthier oils and ingredients, and is very accommodating for any special diet need.

Received the wrong drink and my quinoa burger didn’t have avocado on it, so it felt crazy expensive for what it was. I left extremely hungry still after eating a little bit of quinoa with lettuce for $19. Fail. The restaurant was super busy so my friend and I didn’t want to bother putting in any complaints, we’ve worked in restaurants and know it happens sometimes.

Coconut Sea Bass with Spicy Panang Curry
sweet potato, green bean, bok choy, rainbow carrot, thai basil, coconut curry shrimp broth.

Squash Pie.

Everything was very good! I don’t like being crowded in on those small tables for two down the center of the restaurant. The rest of the restaurant was practically empty and they tried to sandwich me into a table with no privacy. I asked to be moved.
