Great Food - Slow Service

4 Posted on 07 / 12 / 2014

If going on a lunch break plan on having the buffet. It is a good range of food plus you aren't at the mercy of time. The food has always been good but the service time is very variable.

The Garden Grill Salad was phenomenal. "Chicken" hot and with a delicious crunch and the mushrooms were perfect.

The pizza is very tasty but the veg cheese is non-existent. I don't feel like that distracts from the pizza - I just feel like they should remove it from the description. Veg cheese is insanely expensive and if the pizza was covered in it I would expect they would have to triple the price. I'd rather pay less for a good pizza without the cheese.

Pros: Food tastes wonderful, Well priced for the quality, Variety of food
Cons: Time , Misleading description of pizza

Delicious!

I'm a vegetarian but I try to eat vegan as often as I can. This is one of the few restaurants in my area that offer an entirely vegan menu. Although meat and animal by-products are lacking from the menu, quality and deliciousness are not! The chef and all the workers make sure that your experience is the best that it could possibly be. Everything from the smoothies to the main courses to the desserts will leave no one disappointed- including the omnivores. Prices are what one should expect for a high quality and satisfying meal.

Pros: excellent food, unique, goood vibe

Great lunch buffet. Unique space. Worth the trip in Wichita.

I especially enjoyed the eggplant ratatouille on one trip and the spil pea indian curry soup on another visit.

Pros: lunch buffet, atrium atmosphere
Cons: parking

FANTASTIC Veg Restaurant

5 Posted on 09 / 20 / 2013

What a gem of a vegan restaurant--right in the heart of Wichita! The food is excellent, varied selection. The chef takes pride in the art of preparing healthy, great tasting vegan food. The atmosphere is wonderful. Restaurant is in the sunny and airy enclosed atrium of an office building. More upscale experience...but still very reasonably priced for a great meal. Highly recommended.

Pros: Very good food, Lovely environment, friendly, responsive staff
Cons: none

Good But Pricey

3 Posted on 08 / 03 / 2013

Good assortment of vegan foods and desserts. But most their food contain soy and almonds for those who need to avoid soy or nuts. Hours are too limited and location could be better.

Pros: Good Quality Food, Open Sundays
Cons: Price, Soy And Nuts, Hours And Location

    Dear Shipper: I want to thank you for your review of the "Garden Grill Café." As a vegan Chef, I'm always concerned about my customers health and allergies. The only dish that has almond extract is the waffles. If I'm aware, or notified of a customers allergy. I will do my best to accommodate so the experience at my restaurant will be an enjoyable one. We have had people come in with the most common allergies, and still able to find something to eat and enjoy at the "Garden Grill Café."

We're so lucky to have this in Wichita!

Love it! Must try the Sunday brunch. Reasonable prices. Check out hours and parking map before you go- it's a little tricky, but makes it even more of a hidden gem.

We will be back!

5 Posted on 03 / 08 / 2013

We were touring through KS and found this gem of a restaurant here on Yelp but realized that it would be closed by the time we got there. We called to double check the hours and these wonderful people stayed open for us and served some of the best Vegan food we've had. Their Thai Curry special was amazing and the Garden Grill Salad was lovely. After we paid and thanked Chef Miguel Larcher and his wonderful staff he made us sit down and treated us to the most delicious vegan cheesecake ever! We love this place and we will be coming back. As traveling musicians we judge restaurants on how far out of our way we will drive to eat there. The farthest we have ever considered is 2 hours. We are giving Garden Grill Cafe a 3 hour rating!

Pros: Delicious , Friendly, Comfortable
Cons: None, None, None

Lovely Sunday Brunch!

5 Posted on 01 / 11 / 2013

I took my grandparents here for Sunday brunch last week and we all absolutely adored it. The brunch was a buffet and we tried everything on the menu, from the perfect peach and berry cobbler to the scrambled tofu and the Mediterranean lasagne. They even had agave for my grandma's tea, which she really loved. The whole thing was fantastic and I would highly recommend a visit. The atmosphere was great, the staff was friendly and accommodating, and the food can't be beat.

Pros: Delicious, Healthy, Friendly
Cons: No coffee , Parking

Having had the opportunity to eat in many of the vegan/vegetarian restaurants in this country and abroad, I say without hesitation that Chef Miguel Larcher has given Wichita the honor of having the creme de la creme of vegetarian cuisine. If I were rich and famous I would hire Miguel as my personal vegan chef - his food is that good.

Pros: excellent food, friendly attentive staff, nice sized portions

The best vegan food!

5 Posted on 11 / 22 / 2012

This place is so good, my husband and I can't stay away! The food tastes sooo....good. I don't feel guilty gorging because it's not unhealthy!

This restaurant has made my life so much easier because I don't cook nearly as much and have more time to spend on other things & with family. All the people that work there are incredibly nice & friendly.

If you are thinking about trying it, you should stop what you're doing right now & go!

The Garden Grill Cafe is Fantastic!

5 Posted on 10 / 30 / 2012

Awesome food, not just awesome vegan food! Chef Miguel Larcher and staff prepare and serve an amazing vegan menu that even onmivores can love. The menu here is larger than the menu at d'Sozo (Chef Larcher's former restaurant) with something for everyone from light salads to filling entrees to delicious deserts. We want to try everything on the menu but keep getting sidetracked by the daily specials which have all been wonderful. Honestly, everything we've tried is very good, most of it amazing. Wichita has needed a great vegetarian/vegan place for a long time and now we have one!

Delicious!

5 Posted on 10 / 24 / 2012

As a vegan in Wichita, I've waited nearly a year for Chef Miguel to open a new his new restaurant. This is the only place that I can confidently walk in and order anything on the menu, and know that it will be both vegan and incredibly delicious.

Pros: Vegan, Top quality, Fresh
