First Review by plonitalmoni

it was okay - Edit

Maybe there was too much build up and expectation because I wasn't that impressed. I actually didn't like the tofu main entree at all. The dessert was fantastic though: uber chunk and chocolate bar. Can't go wrong there.

Pros: beautiful presentation

Cons: hard to get a reservation even on a Thursday

Eat everything - Edit

You definitely have to sample as much as the menu as you can - you could get 2 or 3 dishes and dislike it all but overall it’s incredible. The fondue is cheesier than cheese itself, the carrots are next level but the asparagus carbonara is the real star of the show. I went through 4 glasses of canola cola and could still go back for more.

Pros: canola cola, overall quality

Cons: the ice cream that tastes like tree, customer service from some staff is questionable

dreamy pretzel & fondue - Edit

I like the food here. The staff is friendly and the vibe is good. The drinks are alright. The wine selection is not good. I DO recommend eating here tho. Everyone says it's overpriced but it really isn't. The food is quality. If you're on a budget just sit at the bar and order the pretzel roll with fondue...it's life changing. Staff is really helpful.

Pros: quality food, nice vibe, pretzel w fondue

Cons: wine list

amazing - Edit

All of their offerings are incredible but a highlight for me was when they featured an Apple cider cronut as a seasonal dessert special.

Believe the hype - Edit

Vegetables you're familiar with, prepared in unexpected and delightful ways: Beets that taste like lox. Tofu that tastes like gouda, and I'm still trying to wrap my head around the rutabaga fondue.

It's expensive, but totally worth it. A uniquely delicious dining experience.

Treat yourself!

Satisfying the most discriminating palates.... - Edit

Philadelphia “The City of Love” certainly lives up to it’s reputation . . . especially in way of fine dining in every type of cuisine. Satisfying the most discriminating palates of meat lovers, seafood eaters and vegans. And surprisingly! There’s one restaurant that seems to attract them all without compromising—VEDGE. Although they accept walk-in, you’ll find out quickly why so many book way in advance.

The ambiance of this place is cozy, warm, and inviting along with many of its patrons. The staff are very professional, polite and courteous. Kudos to Megan, our waitress, and her serving assistants for paying attention to little/fine details and making sure the table remains clean and fresh flatware and plates were reset in between courses:

VEDGE BAR
DIRT LIST
THE GRILL
DESSERT

Starting with the first three courses, the food was savory, full of flavor and plated artfully. And the final entree of:

SEARED MAITAKE MUSHROOMS
smoked remoulade, grilled celery, celery root fritter. May explain why it was listed last on THE GRILL menu—saving the best for last. We’ll save our thoughts about the dessert. Why? So that you don’t waste time making your reservations.

Go here. - Edit

I cannot even explain how good the food was. I can’t quite wrap my head around how the ingredients came together to make such marvelous food, but they did. It was some of the best food i had ever tasted. I never would have thought carrot would make a main dish, but i was wrong. Everything was wonderfully prepared and beautifully presented.

Some things to be aware of:
This has a $$$ for a reason. It is expensive. The servings are small but i believe worth it.
This is a popular restaurant. We got reservations a werk in advance and the only available slot was 9:15. Plan ahead. You don’t want to miss out.

Excellence without reservation - Edit

Tip: for seating at tables, reserve well in advance, especially for prime dining times.

And if you can't/don't, well the food is just as delicious at the comfortable bar, and the service from the knowledgeable and friendly bartender is excellent.

I thoroughly enjoyed each plate, from the complimentary taste of sweet potato bisque, to the rutabaga fondue, to the seared maitaki mushroom, to the sticky toffee pudding with smoked cedar ice cream.

Prices were reasonable for big city gourmet delicacies!

Whether you are able to plan ahead or not, don't miss the Vedge experience.

Pros: Excellent service, Excellent food

Finally got to experience a legend - Edit

I’ve been hearing so much about Vedge from Philly friends, TV shows, blogs, etc. etc., so I was psyched that I finally had a chance to try it. I came here by myself and got 3 dishes (1 from each section of the menu) and a drink.
My first dish, which had an assortment of 4 radishes, was really nice. It was beautifully presented. Each radish was different with its own accompaniments. The dish really showcased the unique flavors and textures of each radish.
My second dish was a mushroom “pasta” dish, where the “pasta” was actually thinly sliced mushrooms. It was really savory and tasty.
My last dish was grilled beet. The sauces on this dish were otherworldly.

I’m starving! - Edit

Great food if you are a tiny munchkin. I hate spending $17.95 for one slice of tofu no matter how beautiful it’s displayed. I’d much rather go to Blue Sage in Southampton! Come on Vedge FEED ME VEGAN!!

Pros: high end vegan food

Cons: tiniest portions I’ve ever seen in my life.

LOVE! - Edit

I love, love, love Vedge! Cannot rave enough. Went recently and ordered multiple entrees, apps and desserts to try as much as possible. Everything was amazing. Also did the Vedge x Whole Foods vegan holiday feast. Highly recommend! Will be going back as much as possible.

overpriced restaurant for trendy elves - Edit

The food was interesting, but the problem was the portions were barely bigger than my pinky and at a high price based off their hyped-up reputation. We are a normal-sized human family and left $350 poorer but still starving. Best only for upper-class pixies, elves, faeries, and squirrels if wearing proper attire. If you are larger, you will be left hungry.

Pros: fully vegan

Cons: expensive, tiny portions

Lived Up To The Reviews - Edit

Saw this was listed in the top 3 overall restaurants for Philadelphia. What?! A vegan restaurant?? As a vegan I was stoked. Then I realized you needed a reservation. Lucky for me I was able to snag one!

The restaurant is elegant but chill enough that I was able to wear jeans and a nice shirt (the fanciest thing I had packed).

It was probably the most gourmet meal I've ever had and lived up to the reviews. Even my meat-eating friend who came along was beyond impressed. If you find yourself in Philly, check this place out!

Pros: 100% Vegan, Upscale but not pretentious

Cons: None

Worth the Wait - Edit

It took us two months to get a reservation and it was well worth the wait. The food and presentation was superb! The atmosphere was upscale and trendy - I felt comfortable that I wore a dress shirt and khakis, but I did see others in jeans and sneakers. Fantastic bottle list and full bar complement the menu. This is a must to try and we plan on coming back again soon.

Cream of the Crop - Edit

Hands down, the best vegetarian meal I've ever had. Nothing else has even come close. Unique dishes. High cuisine, yet also often quite comforting. It's not just good for vegetarian, it's good for anything.
This is fine dining, and expect to pay for it.

Pros: Absolutely astounding food., Friendly & helpful staff, Creative dining

Cons: Pricey, Pricey, Pricey

Every Vegan in the Area Must Try Vedge - Edit

Even before I went to Vedge I had lots of my not-yet-veg friends asking my opinion of the place. If it can create a buzz among people who don't really care about vegan fare, you definitely need to form your own opinion to share. Plan your reservation a couple weeks ahead unless you like dining at 9pm. The vegetables are featured in innovative ways and impress even people who aren't vegan. That's surely a win!

Pros: amazing vegetable variety, great place to do an evening to high standards, all vegan all the time

Cons: reservations required so really plan ahead, pricey but good for special occasions

amazing, creative vegan food - Edit

This place is awesome! The service is impeccable. My girlfriend & I pretty much ordered a little bit of everything because we don't have many vegan places in our hometown so when we get the chance to dine out somewhere else we go hard! Everything was amazing. I especially loved the rutabaga fondue. It was delicious. The prices are a bit high, but worth every single penny!
