Enjoyed the food here on a recent trip to Asheville. The dishes were inventive and tasty, although the delivery of the meal on this particular night was very slow. Service was otherwise good. Portions are small, and prices are definitely on the high side.

Plant Restaurant was highly recommended to me by several friends. I was not disappointed. I would consider them more of a fine food vegan restaurant where everything served there is plant based. The food was just amazing. We loved the "cheese" board a lot, and...More

This was our second visit, and I would continue to go back. I particularly enjoyed the smoked portabella mushroom plate and the “cheese” plate. The “ginger tonic” is especially good also — kind of “gin and tonic meets Moscow mule”. The desserts are shareable. There...More

Love the food here. As folks who are flirting with vegan, we find whenever we eat here we become re-energized with enthusiasm. Wonderful food, service and always new dishes/flavors. Small menu but always something special. Desserts are YUMMY!

Somewhat pricy but worth the trip. A small restaurant where inventive vegan meals are served tastefully. We had to eat here more than once during our short stay in Asheville, NC.

It is one of the best restaurants I’ve been to! The home-made cheese and the beets are to die for; the salad is exquisite, and the chili con queso very good. For dessert, try the carrot cake!
