Great choice for a special evening out - the juices and elixirs are fun for a non alc drink, the roasted cauliflower is one of their staples. Love the hummuses. Menu changes seasonally. Everything I’ve tried has been wonderful.

Expensive Vegetarian

While I applaud the vegetarian in ABCV, it really is vegetarian and not vegan. For lunch, the majority of the menu consists of egg dishes.

The atmosphere is upscale, almost too much so to be uncomfortable. And the prices reflect that - $21 for an appetizer.

Cons: Exclusively vegetarian , Upper crust, Expensive m

Nice restaurant for special occasions

Excellent service. Nice menu selection. Served family style. While not all items are vegan, the wait staff ask about dietary restrictions and accommodate them. Entire dessert menu is vegan.

Worth it

Started out with green hummus, which was really good. Grilled oak wood shiitake was the best of the five dishes I tried - So full of flavor. Beluga lentils were sub par, some felt partially cooked and seasoning really did not do it for me. Special of the night was pasta with truffles, which was ok, not sure if it was worth paying $80 for. Our Server was very friendly but the speed of service could def use improvement. Great ambiance and a decent selection of wines.

Amazing High-end Vegan Food!

We loved this restaurant. The food and service were top notch. They recommend 2-3 plates per person. We ordered 10 dishes for 4 people and it was the perfect amount. Each dish had amazing flavors and we devoured every morsel. The only exception to our selections was the whole roasted cauliflower. It looked nice but lacked the incredible flavors of the other dishes. Our favorites included really every other dish we ordered. However, the dates, honeynut squash, grilled shiitake, and the creamy seared tofu really stood out. Then there was dessert. Don’t pass up on dessert!! The chocolate cherry layer cake and the white sweet potato soft serve were divine! The sorbets were just okay - the fig sorbet lacked flavor.

This restaurant is a must go. The food won’t disappoint, but be prepared that it is on the pricey side.

Always great

abcv is always amazing. 100% worth the price. If you sit outside you can order from the abccocina menu as well, which has some very good vegan options. The cauliflower is a must. everything we ate was excellent

Lots of vegan choices

Beautiful interior and very flavorful dishes. I wish the menu clearly labeled the vegan options to help us decide what to order but the waitress pointed out some tasty options! Overall great experience for a Sunday brunch.

Too pricey

This is please is beautiful. Pristine looking. Very friendly staff and amazingly tasted food, but way to expensive. I had beluga lentils with sweet potatoes which was supposed to be my main dish, but it felt like a small appetizer. It was delicious but at $24 I was still hungry. I guess I could have ordered side dish of rice for $16…. Well, it was tasty but I don’t think I will be going back.

Pros: Beautiful ambiance , Friendly staff, Tasty food

Cons: Too expensive

Good but nothing mind blowing / worth the hype or the price. However, service was excellent.

Mind Blowing Flavors

My husband and I ate at abcV for dinner while enjoying a Christmas weekend in the city. At nearly $30 a dish, which are meant to be shared, it put it into the special occation dinner range for our wallet. We ordered three and shared them. It was enough food that we were full but not overly so by the end.

We started with the Whole Roasted Cauliflower with turmeric tahini, za’atar, date molasses pomegranate, red zhug, fresh herbs, pistachio at $29. I was skeptical because everyone now has a whole roast cauliflower, but it was truly amazing. You could tell the cauliflower was first branded and had flavor throughout even before the herb tahini top or red zhag sauce.

We then followed it with the Saison Battered Maitake with calamansi turmeric honey, black tahini togarashi, scallion at $28. It was by far the best mushroom dish I've had. Mind blowing in crunch and the sauce was a perfect mix of sweet and acidity to cut the fried batter.

We finished with the Wild Matsutake Kabocha Wontons with aromatic peppercorn broth citrus, tender market greens at $35. It was the only letdown of the evening. Though the filling of the wonton was delicious the broth wasn't to our taste. Would recommend skipping this dish.

Pros: Delicious , Inventive, Seasonal

Cons: Pricy, Some portions are very small, Food brought in odd order with soup bing last

Lovely dinner

Beautiful dinner in stylish restaurant! I took friends out for a special occasion and this was a great place. None of them were vegan but all of them had a great time. The service was amazing and everything we ordered was delicious. I had the truffle pasta special. Probably would not recommend it. The white truffles were not the best I had! Not very flavorful at all and at $68 the dish was pricey- as expected and I’d say not worth it. My friends porcini pasta was better! Other than that outstanding!

Pros: Delicious vegan options, Fresh and creative , Beautiful atmosphere-better then in pictures

Cons: Vegan - vegetarian not labeled! , Hard to get a table

Very good vegan food

They really put a lot of thought and creativity into their meals. They had an appetizer of stuffed dates which was I think the most delicious thing I've ever eaten? It's mostly vegan except a few dishes. Pretty pricey but worth it on occasion.

Very Bad Customer Service

Last evening my girlfriend and I stopped at AbcV for a small bite and some cocktails our waiter was very gracious and kind, he cleaned the very dusty table which we were very understanding of since all dining in NYC is outside and very close to street traffic. My review is about our treatment after he brought the bill, my girlfriend took out a $100, note and I a $20 to cover the bill, our waiter took the cash inside and proceed to return with the cash and ask if we don't have a card because Abcv is not talking cash. Now there was absolutely no mention from the hostes that seated us that the policy was no cash. Last I remember cash was a legit from of payment and in the Covid19 climate business who are not accepting cash would tell you immediately once you enter their establishment. Management needs to do way better because we felt PROFILED. To omit an important policy like this one to your customers is highly unprofessional and distasteful. A lot of Restaurants and establishments are not going to survive this pandemic....the public you serve are the ones that you rely on to turn things are. First impressions are everything. I will not return to AbcV and I am letting all my friends know. My money is very good elsewhere.

Pros: The Hummus is Great

Cons: Bad Customer Service
