    Blown away by the amazing vegan cooking, I didn't miss meat one bit. Pricey but worth it - there's a reason it's often called the best vegan restaurant in the country. Stay yes to the bread, it's 💣.

    This vegan fine-dining mecca's annual Southern Comfort night is a must. For one night a year, roulades and soufflés take a back seat to burger bars, deep-fried pickles, and ice cream sundaes.

    This fine-dining establishment hits the jackpot with endless options for vegan eaters, like the crusted king trumpet mushrooms with arborio rice and coriander seed dredge, and citrus-yuzu ponzu. Read more

    I highly recommend the Brick Pastry Roulade. One of the best dishes I have had in recent memory. Thinking it would be a great choice for someone who is not very familiar with vegan cuisine Read more

    My favorite item on the menu is hands down the fried oyster mushrooms. I also love the cocktails and digestive elixir. You really can't go wrong ordering anything else on the menu either

    Just a word to describe the 5 courses menu: feast. Totally worth the more than probably excessive amount of food, because you'll taste a great range of flavors and textures. Chapeau!

    Why not leave your prejudices behind and see how good vegetarian cuisine can be? With dishes like arborio-crusted tempeh and seared sweet potato griddle cake, you can't go wrong. Read more

    If you can't get a reservation, try eating at the bar. It's the same stellar menu, but you get to chat with the bar tender and watch him/her make the drinks, which is fun.

    Excellent food but pricey, and the portions were smaller than hoped for. Vegetarian food being less calorie-dense, cordon bleu serving sizes don't really suit this menu.

    Perhaps the best vegan restaurant on the western seaboard. The food is incredible from start to finish and a Foursquare check-in scores you a free dessert. ($40-70)

    Food is decent, ambiance is lackluster. If you're looking for really great vegan fare, opt instead for Gracias Madre or Oakland's Souley Vegan for half the cost.
