I ate here for lunch with two friends, and as the we heard the server exclaim to the owner/chef after the meal, we "ate 4 appetizers, 3 meals, and 2 desserts, and finished it all!". She spoke the truth- we ate all the food that was brought out.
For starters we had the beet latkes (not my favorite but my friends loved them), the sesame seitan (very good), the cauliflower appetizer upon the server's recommendation (very good, especially when cooled a bit), and the crostini with various toppings (delicious).
For the meal we had the ceasar salad, the tempeh reuben, & portobello sandwich. You can choose sweet potato fries or salad with sandwiches, and because the sandwiches, fries & salad were all so delicious, I would opt for one of those the next time rather than the ceasar.
For dessert we shared the cheesecake & the carrot cake- the carrot cake was, as the server predicted it may be, the best carrot cake I had ever had.
We were there on a Monday around 1:00, and the restaurant was completely full. We waited 5-10 minutes for a table, and the service was as fast as it could have been given the occupancy. The servers were very friendly & helpful. As we were leaving we were already planning our next outing to the Red Lentil.
very good food, knowledgeable, friendly staff, varied menu
