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!

tasty food, intimate looking place - Edit

like the eggplace braciole, grilled seitan. they brought back the horseradish creme with the seitan, would pay more for mashed potatoes with the seitan like they did at horizons....that and vegan drinks like at the old location, got an arrogant bastard beer for $3 in 2008

Pros: tasty, makes vegetables tasty

Cons: portion size

SO good! - Edit

My sister and I came here when she was visiting. We made reservations very early, but usually about two weeks in advance is good. Reservations fill up quickly. The atmosphere here is great; just the right amount of lighting and a little loud, but in a good way. The food is incredible. All the dishes are very creative and unexpected combinations, mainly vegetable and fruit based. It's tapas style, so get ready to try a lot of different things! The fingerling potatoes are one of the best things I've ever tasted. I also loved the carrot kimchi dish. Everything we had (around six dishes) was delicious. The desserts were also very very good. I had the cheesecake and sorbet dish and my sister had the peanut butter chocolate one, and we loved both. It definitely lives up to the hype!! Go here if you can!!

Decadent treat - Edit

While spendy, the food is amazing. No hummus wraps, veggie burgers, or other common vegan fare, thank goodness. True gourmet, inventive, eye catching and delectable plates. My omnivore friend was astounded by the grilled seitan. Waitstaff friendly and brought us an extra appetizer, sips of chilled soup and Uber bites compliments of the kitchen. Even scored a cookbook they had chef sign for me! Wish and hope to come back one day. You deserve to treat yourself!

Pros: DELICIOUS, Unique dishes and flavors, Friendly staff and cozy atmosphere

Cons: spendy, but worth it

spectacular - Edit

We were kindly and promptly greeted to find a cozy corner by an antique leaded glass window. Our server was knowledgable, friendly and efficient. We had a difficult time deciding what to order as everything sounded delicious. We had the Flight cocktail, stuffed avocado and beet appetizer and spicy tofu and wood grilled carrot entree and mud pie and caramel desserts to go. Stuffed, satisfied and compassionate. Thank you Vedge for continually reshaping the shape of dining, cuisine and Veganism❤️

Pros: clean restrooms

Cons: funky neighborhood

Exceeded My Expectation...Still Salivating... - Edit

My husband (who describes himself as a spousal vegetarian) and I ate there last Monday night for a celebratory dinner on the a 24-hour visit to Philly. It was the best higher-end vegan restaurant meal we've had to date anywhere in the world. Inventive, flavourful, varied, beautiful, satisfying. We went there at the tail end of happy hour and ordered 3 gorgeous cocktails and 2 apples (the mushroom were scrumptious). Then we shared fingerling fries, spicy tofu and shared brussel sprouts. I enjoyed being seats by the kitchen and was very impressed. I cook vegetarian A LOT so I really appreciated the inventiveness of the dishes. I'll be raving about our visit for a long time. Oh yes and all the staff were lovely, efficient and welcoming. Well done Vedge!

Pros: inventiveness, super flavourful, wide variety of flavours/textures

Cons: too expensive for every day, too far from Toronto

Best restaurant on the planet - Edit

True, this place is not cheap. However, the flavors they offer I have yet to try anywhere else on the planet. It is worth every penny! When they say they make vegetables the star of your dish, that is not an overstatement by any shape or form. I have no words. It is truly an experience to eat at this restaurant. Let's just say I live in Orlando, FL and my husband and I flew to Philadelphia mainly to try out this restaurant and I do not regret it at all. This is a must for all vegans!

Pros: Outstanding Food, Local, Organic, Farm to Table, Menu changes based on local produce

Cons: Expensive, Small portions
