YAAAAASSSSSSS! - Edit

Love No Bones, if I lived in Seattle it would totally be my go to! The nachos were amazing and the drinks were also on point. You definitely get good portions and great quality.

Update: we came back for brunch and both of our meals were floating in oil. I’m not a health food vegan and I don’t mind some oil in my food but both of us were disappointed in the things we picked. I think some of the dishes are hits here and others are misses.

By far best - Edit

After going vegan for a while I decided to venture out and eat at restaurants. This is by far the best I've been to so far out of 6 different places. The energy the music the decorations of course the food and the staff were great! Such a fun energetic place with food that is packed with flavor I love this place I will for sure be back. It's all ages, so they do have high chairs. They do have some very fancy drinks that are good and strong worth the $10 price tag. Happy hour is between 4-6 Tuesday to I think Thursday. Dollar off beers wines and wells and $7 margaritas and a food menu with prices around $6 bucks. Great place my 9 month old loved the music and food.

Deep Fried - Edit

While the food tastes pleasant, everything is deep fried and much Is heavily processed here. I’m sure some like this but it is not why I went vegan.

Pros: It’s vegan

Cons: Too much deep fried food

Don’t Get the Crab Cakes - Edit

Came here with my boyfriend on our visit from out of town. We started with the buffalo cauliflower wings and got talked into doing half buffalo half sesame ginger by our waitress. Not a good move- the sesame ginger were wayyyy sweet and I wasn’t a fan. Stick with buffalo, unless you really like super sweet things!

For entrees, my boyfriend got their Bahn Dot Com and I for the Crab Cake Sando but made as a salad. My boyfriend really enjoyed his sandwich and would recommend that, I on the other hand didn’t enjoy my crab cakes at all. They had a weird taste, sort of sweetish, but nothing crabby tasting. And they were super fried. It was a bummer, I ended up not finishing my meal.

Next time I would get something else! It was a good spot, just don’t get the crab. :)

Wowzers! - Edit

I’ve eaten at No Bones three times now, and the quality has always been consistent. The two times for lunch, a table was easily acquired, however last night for dinner, the place was hopping and we had a half hour wait. We ordered the Nacho plate and cauliflower buffalo wings as a starter to share for our table of 4 and both were super yummy and can definitely be recommended. For my main I had the “crab cake” sando which was excellent....Boy I wish I could get the recipe for that one. My husband had the North Shore Skydive, an Asian/southwestern inspired tofu sandwich, which he really liked, and the other two in our party had the Jackfruit Flautas and the Rip Tide salad, all of which were devoured. The food here is decadent, comforting, and delicious and the staff are friendly and helpful. I’m looking forward to trying their brunch menu next!

Pros: Consistently great food

Cons: May have to wait for a table at dinner time

Fantastic - All vegan! - Edit

Creative delicious menu. The cauliflower wings are amazing. Avocado tacos fantastic. All the sandwiches are super yummy. Pretty much everything on the menu I would recommend. Cute tiki bar style restaurant, with nice decor, even some cocktails come in a Hawaiian style glassware. For some good times try their 'shark shots' & for a few extra bucks you can keep the cute little sharks as a souvenir! Tip: Lots of items are deep-fried & kind of greasy, so just heads up if you are low fat or avoiding oil. All of your meat eater friends and family will love this restaurant- it's not just for vegans! DJ spinning records at brunch. ( The only thing I don't like is their motto/tagline that says "just because it's vegan doesn't mean it sucks". I think that just kind of perpetuates the idea that vegan food sucks. The sentence/words turns me off. I wish they change it to something more positive.) *Edited to add: last time I was in, December 2017, the food wasn’t as good as it used to be!! What’s going on??

Pros: fun atmosphere , friendly staff, great food- all vegan

Cons: items don't come with sides- menu is expensive $$, a little greasy. lately food isn’t as good as it u, sometimes wait/line to get in- because it's awesom

Vegan Yummmy - Edit

I arrived at 11am and the host greated me and asked me where I wanted to site, since I was solo I sat at the bar, with the nicest bartender I spoken to in a while , she was so friendly. I'd say the same for the other staff.
I ordered the Crab Cake Benedict & the Fried Avocado Benedict, both were great and priced well. I've seen the other posts about all the food being fried, not sure of that statement is accurate, but it's poky to have some fried vegan foods, maybe not everyday, but sometimes.

Pros: Taste, Staff

Cons: Parking, It's small so it fills up quickly, They don't take reservation

Polynesian Pleasure - Edit

Freshest ingredients, unique flavors, marvelous selection. The Tofu Banh Mi and Cashew Mac and Cheese balls were something else. You know you are finding quality when the tofu can stand alone (without condiments). Warning: you will gain weight eating here, but you never feel queasy. Just sated. So grateful that they opened another location in Seattle.

Has really gone downhill - Edit

I love a good vegan tiki bar as much as the next person (asssuming the next person is a vegan like me), but No Bones needs to add more variety to their menu. 90% of what they offer is deep fried and covered in grease. Eggplant Fries - dripping in grease. Cauliflower Wings - really greasy. Crab Cake and Tempeh Sando - greasy. I've stopped going there because after I leave I feel like I need to hose down my arteries, which is a pretty bad thing to say about a vegan place. And then there's the drinks - all way too sweet. Finally, their staff needs to lose some attitude. Some friends said the refused to seat here at a table for six until everyone got there even though the place was empty at the time. Another friend accidentally bumped into a table, and the wait person snapped "You need to watch where you're going". I won't be going back until they mix things up a bit and pick up the laid0back island vibe the they should but don't have.

Pros: All vegan, Don't have to worry about what's on the menu

Cons: Really greasy food, Snooty staff, Too sweet drinks

Creative and Fun Spot - Edit

This restaurant has a very cute tiki bar vibe, and creative menu. I ordered the eggplant fries, which were fantastic, very tasty panko breading that got super crispy. The only con was if there were two pieces of eggplant stuck together, they never fried completely through, and weren't as good as the single piece fries. I didn't try the dipping sauces.

I also ordered the Seasame Crunch Salad, which had very crispy cabbage, red peppers, toasted sesames, scallions, cilantro, and curried cashews, it was really good. The dressing was a sesame mustard dressing, I would recommend this salad.

I also got a side of the Coastal Mushroom Chowder, I really didn't care for this, again they went for a literal interpretation of flavors, and I just couldn't, nor could my partner.

For a cocktail I got the Hemingway's Vacation, it was strong and refreshing, hit the spot.

My partner got the Smoked Golden Beet Poke, which was super creative, she loved it, I didn't care for it, as it seems that this place strives to recreate the traditional flavors of poke, it wasn't for me, but my partner ate the entire plate, which was a good sized serving.

She also purchased the Beer Battered Avocado Tacos, which she loved, and said were so filing, especially after the poke, that she thought she was going to explode.

For a cocktail she got the Pina Colada and enjoyed it.

Her friend also got the Beer Battered Avocado Tacos, she also ate it all and said she loved it. I didn't try any, not really my thing.

Her friend also ordered two Guava Paloma and loved them.

Overall, a very cool vibe, creative menu, and strong drinks, would come here again.

Can't wait to go back - Edit

I went with some friends and got to try a few dishes. I ordered the avocado tacos which I actually was a little disappointed in - the ingredients were good but the avocado texture was a little off, maybe from being fried? But the cauliflower wings were amazing, and the flautas were SO good - will definitely be ordering those next time I'm there. Also the drinks were great.

Pros: All vegan, Good for Non-Vegans

Vegan bar food - Edit

I love bringing my non vegan friends here! The food is on the heavy side, as any good bar food should be, and is very filling. The cauliflower buffalo wings are amaze balls and you wouldn't know there wasn't chicken on the Tempeh sandwich. The North Shore burger is my fave!

Updated from previous review on 2017-08-15

Pros: Awesome vegan bar food

Cons: On the heavy side

great bar, okay food - Edit

I ate by myself at the bar at No Bones Beach Club. My coconut mojito was excellent and the tiki atmosphere was super fun. My sushi roll was okay (not the best vegan sushi i've had), but the stand out of the meal was dessert. The fried banana balls with cappuccino ice cream was BOMB. I'd go back for drinks and dessert, but don't expect a gourmet vegan meal like other Seattle restaurants.

Pros: great atmosphere, excellent dessert, excellent drinks

Cons: average savory dishes

Worst vegan restaurant in Seattle - Edit

The atmosphere at this restaurant was really fun - but after waiting 15 minutes to order, then another 40 to get the wrong dish, we almost walked out. We figured we had wasted almost an hour and did not want to start over at a new restaurant so we waited another 10 minutes for our meal to arrive. The $12 sandwich was decent, but the $14 salad was so bad it was inedible. After tax, we had spent $30 to waste 1.5 hours of our time. Please, there are so many wonderful restaurants in Seattle, don't spend your time or money here.

Pros: nice atmosphere

Cons: poor service, bad food, long wait time

They like deep-frying a lot. - Edit

A cool place with a really friedly staff. Both of our meals were really fat-heavy (fried pepper and fried avocado tacos) just like the whole menu. The fresh ingredients like the coleslaw were really tasty though.

Pros: Friendly staff

Cons: Almost all dishes include deep-frying.

No WFPB options - Edit

We were excited to eat here, but disappointed to discover that other than a Caesar salad without dressing, there were no menu items that weren't deep fried, or which didn't contain oil, so it wasn't wfpb conpatible.

The staff was friendly and took time to answer our questions and go over the menu, considering accommodations.

Pros: Nice ambience, Knowledgeable and friendly staff, Outdoor seating

Cons: No wfpb options, Limited parking
