Love this place - Edit

I have been to this place many times, and while it may be on the expensive side, it's soooo good. And it's mainly raw foods so I can eat pretty much all I want and I still don't feel gross. I recommend the Avo toast, the lentil walnut burger, and the kimchi spring rolls are super good too.

delicious and adorable - Edit

Delicious food with an adorable location. Eggplant sandwich was SO full of flavor! Even as leftovers it was amazing. Enjoyed the lentil burger as well, the "cheese" just took away from the taste I think. Great experience, would come here again!

Pros: full of flavor

Cons: price

delicious and coolest atmosphere - Edit

We were in Nashville for just a couple of hours and chose to eat Avo - so glad we did! Our food was absolutely delicious and the restaurant is very cool. It's built in an old shipping container and there's a sand volleyball court out back. The outdoor seating looked beautiful too, but it was really hot so we sat inside.

We got the kimchi spring rolls for an appetizer, both the burgers for our mains. Those were all 10/10. We also got dessert which was pretty good, but pretty expensive! It was all pricey, but so good that I thought it was worth it. The desserts were the only thing that seemed overpriced.

Service was great.

First Experience - Edit

Today was our first time at Avo. From start to finish, the food was AMAZING! For our appetizer, we had the kimchi rolls. The flavor inside those rolls was absolutely amazing. My husband ordered the lentil walnut burger and I had the zucchini pasta verde. We both had sides of roasted potatoes. Both entrees were amazing and full of flavor. For dessert, we had the blueberry like cheesecake. Again, this was delicious. The service was great. I can't stress enough how great the food is here. We will definitely be back!

Avo Margarita? Yes Please! - Edit

As a baby vegan, I was really excited to visit Avo. I loved the pad thai. Crunchy, flavorful, filling and delicious! My husband ordered the portobello mushroom burger.... which was amazing! The avocado chocolate tart? Insanely good. And you must get the avocado margarita!

Pros: Great food!

Cons: Very "nut" heavy. As someone with allergies, I was

Just great - Edit

It's not easy to get a decent veggie/vegan meal in the American countryside (yet?), but this is a great place to spoil yourself. From the surprising fresh strawberry caprese and fingerling potatoes with avo mash to the tasty phad thai, red curry and the amazing chocolat brownie - all great plant based food (and nice local beers!) in perfectly sized portions to forget the struggles to feed yourself properly once you leave the bigger American cities.

Pros: broad menu, choice of beers, perfect service

Cons: located outside f city center

WOW - Edit

Wow... just wow! This place is super cute and VERY expensive (I paid $16 for a vegan burger...) but it's so so delicious and would be a super cute date spot. I got the walnut cheeseburger... which is completely soy free (yay) and uses coconut milk cheese. I really enjoyed my meal. Easily the best vegan burger I've ever had. Highly recommend!

FLAVOR EXPLOSION - Edit

I ordered the seasonal squash bowl and the soup of the day, which was a creamy Mushroom soup. I was blown away by how flavorful and fresh everything tasted. You won't get bland boring vegan food from this place. 100% will return. Awesome environment and friendly employees as well.

amazing - Edit

Three of us ate at Avo tonight and it was amazing! We shared three small plates, a soup, and one large plate, topped off with two desserts. Every single dish was fantastic - and large! We are beyond full but we wanted to try every dish they offered! The service was top-notch too.

Pros: every dish was fantastic, service was top-notch

Cons: none

First go around - Edit

I was looking for food that was savory yet fun. I must say I was extremely pleased with this establishment. Y'all crushed it. I ordered kimchi spring rolls (two nice portions, cut into halves. Making them easy to share) glazed cauliflower steaks (mine included brown rice...my goodness, my goodness) and lastly a salad (yet to be consumed... dinner!!!) I spent 38 bucks. When I tell ya, I was not let down at all though. There is a cozy airy atmosphere to the place, but I ordered to go. ? I'm planning a return to try the avocado cheesecake?!?!

It's All True... - Edit

I heard great things about Avo and they are all true. The food is outstanding and the house made kombucha on draft is a bonus! Everything is fresh and tasty. Vanessa was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions with a passion for the creations that was unsurpassed.

Their commitment to fresh, local and flavorful choices is reflected in the seasonal dishes on the menu.

A definite return trip is in the future! :-)

Innovative and Delicious! - Edit

A little hard to find but worth the search! The food is great. We had some small plates - avocado toast, roasted garlic potatoes, kale popcorn, a wild salad and shared a cauliflower steak for an entry. all well prepared and perfect spices. Some items had a tad too much salt so you may want to ask to hold back a bit. Great space.

Flavorful, Healthy, Creative - Edit

If I could only recommend one thing from Avo to someone I couldn't...but I would definitely suggest the following: Mushroom Tartare- SO incredibly flavorful, I could eaten this over and over again and never get bored of it, Kimchi Spring Rolls- hard to believe there is no meat in these! They are so flavorful (do you see a trend here?) and the peanut dipping sauce for them is delicious, Roasted Fingerling Potatoes with Whipped Avocado- you can never go wrong with potatoes and avocado!

THEY HAVE VEGAN MIXED DRINKS! I had a chocolate drink for dessert with vodka and chocolate sauce it was delicious and dare I say...the vegan chocolate sauce they used was better than the regular stuff!!

I could go on and on about their food and drinks, but I'll just leave it at this. Do yourself a favor and visit Avo, whether you are vegan, vegetarian, or a full on carnivore you will love it! And you definitely will not leave with an empty belly.

Pros: Flavorful Dishes, Location , Vegan Mixed Drinks (YES!!)

Wow! - Edit

Wow! Excellent juices, kimchi spring rolls, raw tacos and... did somebody say raw vegan mango cheesecake?!

Some of the best raw vegan fare I've encountered in my travels. Ridiculously excellent. And with a cool Eco-sustainable vibe. (The bathrooms are in shipping containers - worth checking out even if you don't have to go :))

Must visit. Enjoy!

Entrees so-so but best desert ever - Edit

Honestly thought everything was kinda bland. Pizza taste like cracker and cream cheese, lasagna just taste like cashew cheese and zucchini, the falafel was pretty good but nothing to write home about, I was about ready to give up but then we ordered an avacado cheesecake and when I took my first bite, I understood why this place was so popular. If you go, go for the desert

Pros: Desert is amazing, Cool location, Good sized portions for being raw

Cons: Bland entrees, Pricey

Raw heaven - Edit

This is the hippest spot in town for veg*ns and veg*n friends. I loved it.

The menu was not as extensive as it could have been in a traditional veg restaurant, but I did not find this to be any problem. Actually, it was better for my wallet so that I didn't spend $500 to order one of everything.

They have wonderful raw cheesecake like desserts, which are $10 a slice, but the slices are very dense and certainly count for 2 servings of raw dessert. Ever have raw vegan dessert before? Then you know what it's made out of, and it's ok to not have too much in one sitting. Their slices spoil!

Their salads are beautiful creations of local ingredients that just make me happy to eat a salad. That's pretty rare - I am happy to not eat crap, but to be happy at the sight of a salad, and the flavors, that's rare. This place makes salads that put others to shame. Beautiful and delicious - go for the special of the day for the freshest local ingredients. The standards are good, like Caesar, but, eh, the special is special for a reason! Salads on the menu can be the small appetizer or large entree portion. Even the small size is plentiful.

The appetizers and entrees are also very satisfying. Again, check the specials board. You'll be very happy you did. Standards like lasagna (best ever!), pad thai, rice paper rolls and specials like tacos, oh joy! Really, joy!

This place is incredible. I loved it and would be back in a heartbeat.

Pros: Vegan, Raw, Desserts

Cons: Too many great choices, Too far from where I live
