    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 💣.

    Get the fried trumpet king mushrooms with Ponzu sauce as a starter. Amazing. I'm not a vegan but this place was delicious and ambience is great.

    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.

    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!

    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

    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)

    Millennium is the go-to vegan place in SF. Try the Smoked Tempeh and wash it down with glass of wine. Read more

    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

    The best chef-driven vegan restaurant in San Francisco. One of the best in the world. The mushroom feast in the fall is worth reserving a table for.

    The Crackerjack is a great peanut and vanilla infused bourbon cocktail. And order it without agave syrup for a boozier palette.

    The English pea volcano rice cake is probably the best vegan dish I ever had

    Best vegan/vegetarian restaurant in the U.S. that I know. 5 stars, and always blows away my meat-eating friends, too.
  • Ben S.

    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.
  • Nate R.
    Nate RaubenheimerJuly 5, 2014
    Amazing. The jerk tempeh is a winner along with the chocolate almond layer cake.

    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.

    Try the Morel Mushroom Pho - Each individual ingredient shines, but creates such harmony together. You won't even miss the traditional pho broth!

    Fancy, vegan fine dining at it's best. A bit on the pricy side, but it's worth a splurge once in awhile!

    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.

    If the salted lemon-line ice cream is on the menu, order it. It's like a tasteful frozen margarita without the booze.

    Skip the pumpkin tamale. Bland and much less interesting than, say, the cauliflower coconut risotto.
