Respond to Review of Herbivore - Berkeley
Review: I've only been for dinner and the food is consistent, but the service isn't! I like the fact that they don't do a lot of mock meat dishes.. don't get me wrong, I'm not against mock meat, but dishes with veggies and grains don't need pretend meat to make them good! The polenta with portobellos is on the bland side, however that is the creamiest polenta I've tried without cheese. The moussaka is good, but again, I was looking for something with more flavor. If you're looking for some comfort food, the lentil loaf entree is a good pile of food, mashed pototoes and all -- this is one of my favs. They also do a decent job on a vegan pesto sauce, but the gnocchi it was served with was mushy. Dessert? Can you lose with a vegan donut? Heck no! They're yummy. Forget the vegan pie, though. I tried the blueberry and not only did it look horrifying.. the texture and flavor were just not there.
