Some of the best vegan food I’ve had!

AMAZING! The food is some of the best vegan food I've ever had! (I was vegan for 2 years) the food is so delicious and tastes homemade and inviting. If you are looking for places to eat at, definitely come here. The music, the service, the food, everything is such a great experience! Additionally the prices are extremely reasonable!

Definitely a place I will be revisiting regularly!! A true gem!

Pros: Delicious food , Amazing service , Great ambiance

Cons: Not fully vegan, but the best options

Missing the west side

I more often frequented the Washington sq park location but this place is the best, all kinds of food with pretty reasonable prices and cheap wine and beer

Friendly and delicious!

This was a great oasis. We all loved the food and would highly recommend. The sauces were wonderfully flavorful yet not overpowering. I feel nourished.

interesting vegan food

quantum leap makes their vegan food differently than other restaurants. cant explain it, but their vegan cheese nachos and burgers hit different. it bothers me that they market themselves as vegetarian but have a separate menu section for fish and chicken. they are also expensive for the portion size they give you.

Pros: good food

Cons: not actually vegetarian, expensive

If the app would allow to 5 star it, I would!

We were looking for a vegan friendly place to eat at, and found this gem on Google. For some reason it didn't appear on the app. If you're looking for good comforting food, vegan or not, this is the the place you'd wanna go to. First, they have TONS of vegan options! We had 2 burgers, the impossible and the Crispy chicken soy burger, both of them were great! And not only was the food delicious, our waitress was the nicest! She was so friendly, helped us decide patiently, she was just a wonderful hostess and really delighted our stay. I highly recommend this place :)

Highly recommended

Just discovered this small restaurant with many vegan options; the Big Leap Bowl with veggies, quinoa marinated tofu and chili bean is terrific (with hot sauce). Veggies crunchy and every tasted fresh. Can’t wait to come back.

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Delicious food, Friendly staff

Cons: They serve meat

Decent Restaurant near the 59th Street Bridge

This is a branch of the nearly 50-year old restaurant located in Greenwich Village. This is by no means a hard-core vegetarian or health restaurant. (in addition to vegan and vegetarian food, Quantum Leap now offers not only fish, but also chicken and turkey). Nonetheless, the food is somewhat health-oriented, pretty good tasting, and there are plenty of vegan options. The service is good, prices are reasonable.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Decent prices, good service

Cons: I was surprised that QL now offers meat, too.
