Vegetable-focused dishes such as slow-roasted rainbow heritage carrots, fire-charred Brussels sprouts, blistered sweet potatoes with a spicy dry rub, and pan-seared saffron corn cake that is both crispy and creamy.

Had a great lunch here. Love their new burger pop-up menu. Our server was so nice and helpful. Food was amazing. Had the smash cheeseburger and soup.
Mother’s Day. The waitress was extremely sweet and helpful. The food choices could be better (miss the old menu), but we enjoyed what we had. Doesn’t seem like the same chef, overall. We sat outside and there were strange people walking around the area and it made it a little awkward. Would probably eat indoors next time.
The food wasn’t good and we all had stomach issues after eating there
I brought my wife here for her birthday. We have not eaten here in a year and we were looking forward to having a great meal.
The “OPEN” res action app asks if I was interested in a standard meal, I thought that meant I had a choice of the “regular” menu vs the burger menu.
Unfortunately due to the pandemic the menu mostly offers over processed substitute meat burgers. I really wish we had more options of old menu.
We are not vegans, but we really love this restaurant as a “vegetable” only restaurant. We are not big fans of fake meats.
My biggest complaint is the menu options.
Sorry you didnt enjoy our COVID-19 POP-UP Menu. We reduced staff because we are allowed to only seat 3 tables. Because of this, the only viable way to reopen is a take-out/doordash menu (per LA Health Dept). This is the only menu we have on display via opentable and website. We love our old menu & concept but a shareables menu is just not doable during a pandemic. Also your choice in the OT app was for seating. "Standard" referred to table type (vs outdoor/hightop). Sorry for the confusion.
Very nice food and environment
Amazing food and super easy/chill with friendly service.
Terrible. Only one table in the restaurant and we waited one hour. Whew . Avocado on the avocado toast was brownish. Not worth the money and wait. Whew.
Hello, you slightly exaggerated. Apologize if the avocado toast was not your liking, we blend our avocados w/ nut yeast, lemon juice and paprika so might cause the puree to look yellow/brownish, but they are made to order and fresh. If you had mentioned your dislike we would've removed it from you bill, but you indicated no such displeasure. During COVID, we are very short staffed and 99% of our orders are doordash/togo, sorry for your 23.5 min wait. (yes I reviewed it, and we have cameras)
We love Vegetable. Although we miss the old menu, especially the vegan cheeseboard, we thought that the burger menu was phenomenal as well. Our waitress was wonderful and everything about our experience was amazing. Recommend eating indoors if being outside near a busy road with bother you. We drive from San Diego to eat here-don't miss this place!
Overbooked. Our rsvp was at 8:45 and we did not get seated until 9:45.
Sorry about the wait. It was Valentine's night, which is usually SUPER busy and this is still COVID pandemic time so we are forced into only a few tables outdoors. We cannot force people to dine faster and we cannot seat any more additional people at a time due to social distance and health dept protocols.
This was an incredible Valentine's Day meal! We really loved and appreciated it.
I really want to come back when things are open so I can experience the great interior... as for now there was basic seating outdoors without any real outdoor set up the table and chairs were slanting toward the curb and traffic and pedestrians made this experience far from ideal during the current set up.
Sorry you were forced to dine in "basic seating outdoors." We do have a super lovely inside space which our govt overlords forbidden us to use since, you know, its a pandemic. So yes, chairs and tables outside, because the health dept says so. And yes maybe the tables and chairs slant because the sidewalk isnt level but your sacrifice is greatly appreciated to help us win the war against COVID!! But in all seriousness, its a pandemic! & we do not control the traffic and pedestrians outside.
I understand it's a pop up but the food was so disappointing. odd use of spices and the matcha latte wasn't good quality matcha.
First night out in LA in a while. The food was simple and amazing, yum. My girl and I both really enjoyed the soup, deliciously seasoned waffle fries, and the amazing plant based burger!
Fantastic Burgers and service. Can’t wait to go back.
Can't wait to come back. The food was fantastic and the service was wonderful.
Fabulous experience. Great food and a terrific server. We enjoyed all our menu items including the craft root beer.
Very great meal per usual! Would definitely recommend continuously as long as the value is there. @iamspyda
Delicious food and great service. We loved every dish we got and enjoyed relaxing on the sidewalk table as temperatures lowered. Great find and we'll be back for more!
Vegetable is literally one of my most favorite restaurants ever I’m so excited they have a pop up during the pandemic it’s a different menu but it’s so worth it and let me tell you I drive approximately 30 miles just to get there
Always amazing!! Food and service is top notch. Check it out.
Very pricey. The Brussel Sprouts were excellent. The Civiche was not great and we were not offered a refund. Great service. The mushroom scallops were just ok. I would try it again though because the menu is nice.
Really good food and ambient, you should bring your own wine if you wanna drink alcohol! :)
Amazing vegan food!!! Try the cheese plate
The food was beyond delicious and our server was wonderful, informative, and not super hip but super cool!!!
Mock tails were a nice touch!!
Due to its smaller size the ambience is more intimate, noise levels lower and servers have more time for the company. We have gone here for both brunch and dinner and both times, So Delicious!! The best vegan French toasts I’ve had for brunch! Really like their risotto, butternut squash toast, fingerling potatoes with vegan cheese as well as their desserts are freaking solid 👌🏽! I have yet to try their vegan cheeses but am excited for when that day comes. Also delicious teas with a really nice presentation in a French press.
One of the top vegetarian restaurants we've been to nationally. Great selection, great food, BYOB, fantastic service (Lauren) .
I went here by luck and have returned 3 times in the last 3 weeks. It's that good- the kale salad turned me into a convert, prior it tasted like cardboard. I enjoy the 3 bean chili too and then the candied yams...OMG divine.
Wonderful meal. We aren't vegetarian and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Our friend (vegan) said it was best he's had.
The food was excellent and a good value. The waitress was very helpful with the menu, exceedingly professional, and made the overall experience wonderful. I would happily order the same items again, but I want to try many more dishes.
Love the menu. Wish they had a liquor license for wine and beer. Big portions of fresh vegetables and main dishes. You will definitely have a doggie bag to take home. Also wish all the tables were booths because the high top chairs and tables are not comfortable.
Great food, nice atmosphere. Will come again
Honestly, overpriced, and under-inspired - sadly. Certain flavors and mixes worked, others were overproduced and clearly had been sitting, waiting for our order. A dinner for two (admittedly enough for three) with no drinks came in at $120 - meaning pricey, to boot. Convenience (especially its location immediately adjacent to the 101) means that I might be back, but that's really the only reason. If I weren't a vegan, the In-N-Out across the street would hold more appeal. Sad, but true.
Really fantastic tasting food. Excellent service! We had vegetarian guests visiting and we are so glad we tried this place. We'll be back!
Great food, excellent service, and nice atmosphere
Everything looked amazing on the menu. Portions were a bit small for the cost. Cannot say that anything stood out and in the end the worlds tiniest scoop of ice cream left a negative although tasty impression.
Vegetable is my favorite restaurant. Their food is creative and innovative. The menu changes with some frequency, so you are sure to be delighted by their offerings. Also, they have an amazing selection of kombucha!!!
Amazing food and so many options!! Special spot for vegetarians, vegans and anyone who is GF.
One of our family’s favorite dinner places. We like vegetarian/vegan places, and Vegetable never disappoints us. Reliably great food!
