My experience here was fantastic...
I was super excited to try Vermilion for two reasons: (1) Chef Maneet Chauhan of Chopped and Iron Chef was/is an influence to this restaurant and (2) Many recommendations from numerous people.
So we made finally made reservations. Our server was friendly, but overall service was spotty (forgotten drinks, inattentiveness, etc.). The drinks were creative, unique, and quite tasty. I highly recommend the saffron coconut cream martini, which is vegan.
Since there were so many unique items on the menu, we decided to order the tasting menus - which consist of plenty of food to keep you full. I ordered the vegetarian tasting menu and they prepared the entire thing vegan for me without a problem. Every item served was absolutely delectable, the only thing I did not like was the eggplant (overcooked and weird flavoring) but everything else more than made up for it. Overall Vermilion was a homerun - it's my new favorite place to get a fancy pants vegan meal.
