First Review by spartanfish

great place for a meal - Edit

I had a roasted root vegetable salad which was all roasted root vegetables and was wonderful. Best root veggie dish I have ever had. Then I got a side of sweet potato which was sauteed with onion, red pepper, jalapeno and was also delicious and creative. Then the cauliflower side was roasted with garlic and red pepper flakes and was delicious as well. This chef elevates vegetables in creative ways. Very nice.

Pros: service was great, water is filtered - no chlorine taste, nice atmosphere and downtown views

AMAZING VEGAN BURGER - Edit

The Franklin only has one vegan option, but it is well worth it! Their black bean burger is vegan if you ask for it with sourdough bread and no ketchup! They put honey in their ketchup. The staff is very accommodating to vegans and the burger was delicious!

Pros: Friendly staff, Beautiful restaurant , Great Food

Cons: One vegan option, noisy , expensive

Still hungry - Edit

The stuffed poblano was good, but it was definitely not a meal. For $18 I expected more than a little appetizer. Service was ok, but all he suggested when I said I was vegan was the pepper.

We had a nice lunch here - Edit

Our vegetarian family of 4 had a nice all-vegetarian lunch on the patio here last weekend, with a great vegan tomato soup, kale salad, stuffed poblano entree, roasted red pepper flatbread and a few good veggie side dishes. The atmosphere outside was upscale but hip and friendly at the same time. When my husband asked for no cheese on his salad, the sever quickly inquired if there were any allergies etc that we needed the kitchen staff to know about. Good attention to detail. We will definitely go again if we're in the area.
