First Review by AdiVedi

Nice decor, Okay food - Edit

We were excited for upscale vegan offerings, but ultimately found the food underwhelming. The vegetarian Big Mack turns into an average sandwich when requested vegan (different bread and no special sauce), and the vegan nachos were served cold with brownish guac.

Pros: Friendly and knowledge staff, beautiful modern decor, upscale vegan offerings

Cons: A bit on the expensive side, underwhelming flavors , gets crowded quickly

An Oasis in a Vegan Desert! - Edit

I love this place! When I come to Cleveland I come here. First, even though I'm Vegan, I want to go to a real restaurant with real napkins, great bar, and of course-great vegan food. This place fits the bill. Try the fried cauliflower. Super hearty and yummy. Vegan nachos were great. Many more things to try. Next time!

Pros: Great atmosphere, Hearty vegan options, Real bar

Cons: dessert (don't like chocolate)

We will return to Pure Vida! - Edit

I had the browned cauliflower dish that came with a delicious gravy, biscuit, and spiced kale. It was SO YUMMY! Reasonable for $18. My husband had the spaghetti squash sandwich that had a lot of barbecue-tasting sauce; $12. We also tried the dark rice/brussel sprout dish. It was OK but the brussel sprouts were a bit undercooked.

There is a single menu with clearly marked vegan options. In addition, the server offered to turn a vegetarian sandwich into vegan with substitutions. The decor is snazzy yet casual. We are eager return to Pure Vida!

Pros: cool atmosphere, very good service, reasonable prices for quality of food

Pricey but plenty of veg*n choices - Edit

The restaurant has a dedicated vegetarian/vegan menu which is great. We got a Tofu dish and a Polenta dish - the food was good and tasted freshly made. The waiter brought a second glass of wine even though we didn't ask for one which was annoying. The restaurant is also quite pricey - plan on spending around $100 for a dinner for two (1 appetizer, 2 drinks, 2 entrees, 1 dessert)

Pros: Good food, Good location

Cons: No parking (Valet, Street or Public lot), Pricey
