My boyfriend and i visited Plate for Lunch on Friday afternoon so i can only review based on the lunch menu, which i can assume (and hope) is more limited than the dinner menu.
Our overall experience of the place could have been better; there was nobody present at the resteraunt when we arrived and after waiting five minutes for someone to come to our table we had to shout into the kitchen to be noticed. But after that the service was good and the staff were very pleasant.
There were a few vegetarion options on the menu; a garden burger and some stir-fried vegetables with tofu. I didn't notice anything else. I had the garden burger which was really nice, the salad which came with it was particularly nice. The burger had lots of nice healthy additions too. They also had really nice selection of herbal teas available on the menu
Overall it was nice food and conveniently located in Malibu, but there are much better places for vegetarians to eat. I would still like to return for dinner though to see what their vegetarian dinner selection is like

I recently moved to Malibu and this is my new favourite store. Excellent selection for vegetarions but particularly for vegans. The deli is really good and great value for money. I loved the vegan chicken. Even my non-vegetarian boyfriend loves it here.

Lots of options

I thought this place was great for vegetarians. Lots of options on the menu; i really couldn't decide what to have! As i wasn't that hungry i ordered the Veggie Joe but it was massive! I also ate some of the falafel from my boyfriends Greek Platter and thought they were great. I would love to go again and try more veggie options!
As i'm originally from the UK, a place like this was a nice refreshing change. (In the UK this sort of diner would have very limited options for vegetarians) There are even vegan cakes and muffins which looked really nice.

My sister and i had lunch here in August whilst travelling in San Francisco. We are both strict vegetarians so after a while of walking around we were happy to see the vegetarian options on the menu. We both had burgers and several starters to share; the food was delicious and filling. I seem to remember the salad i had was particularly nice and was recommended by the staff, which were also really friendly and fun
I think it was a bit pricey but then it was in a really nice locationa and you do pay extra for Organic food usually, so it wasn't a problem.

Awesome fast food vegan restaurant

My first visit to the Veggie Grill in Santa Monica was last night and i thought it was awesome. Very simple menu and it was clear that great concern was taken with regards to quality (the cook burned my Bayou Chickin' but came out to explain why it was taking so long and offered me a free appetiser while i waited)
All the options looked appetising and i struggled to decide what to have! I want to go again and try something else as what i had was so delicious.
The only con i could agree with from previous reviews may be that they do seem to rely quite heavily on the 'fake meat' options. Not a problem for me really (although i love variation) but i had dragged along my carnivore boyfriend who really isn't keen on that sort of thing. He really enjoyed the chili and sweet potato fries though.
Overall - can't wait to go back again! Great service too and nice atmosphere
