Review: I really wanted to love this restaurant but the fondest memory I have was the cool corner moroccan style seating area we got and the dessert. The wait staff was cold and undereducated on some of the dishes. My husband wanted the seitan sandwich on rice instead of bread and was told it couldnt be done (even though you could choose which kind of bread you wanted). We didnt understand why this dish could not be made without the bread. A good restaurant will be more than happy to modify any recipe to please their customer. I got the tofu piccata. They veganized it for me. The picatta sauce was excellent but I thought the tofu could've been done with a littel more imagination. It was just sliced out of the box and baked for a little while so it was slightly crispy on the outside and typically soft and mushy in the middle. As other reviewers have mentioned, they were out of a couple of desserts. I can understand this being a very once in a while problem but this is sounding like it happens a lot. That is not cool. The dessert I did have was the vegan coconut ginger cake and it was fabulous. The portion size of the dessert was extremely generous, that was a big plus. And vegans understand how important dessert is :) Overall, I wouldnt rush back there again, mainly because of the cold vibe and wicked slow service.
