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

A must - Edit

Vedge was one of the best vegan meals I had ever had. I loved that the portions were not too big so you would not over eat. Everything was fresh and must have took PLENTY of thought. I can say that I will be going back some time in the future. With the atmosphere to the food, everything was beautiful.

Pros: food, atmosphere, kind and quick service

Cons: make a reservation long ahead of time

Way Too Expensive - Edit

You pay like 10 dollars for 1 bite of food. It's ridiculous. Fantastic food, but it's a rip-off.

Pros: Taste

Cons: Price

Must Try! - Edit

This has got to be the best vegan restaurant in the country and probably one of the top restaurants across the board. You have to book weeks in advance but this is a definite place you want to dine in. A little expensive, but what top notch restaurant isn't? I'm still dreaming of their rutabaga fondue. Even my non-vegan husband raved about this place. Service was faultless by knowledgable staff and they were professional but very friendly. My only complaint is that they're three hours from where I live! :(

Pros: Amazing meals, Well presented, Excellent staff

absolutely delicious - Edit

I went on a date to Vedge for a special occasion (as it's a little pricey). We had 6 incredible dishes and 3 adult beverages. We spent just shy of $150, and 1 hour later we were ordering veggie burritos.

Pros: atmosphere, delicious food, awesome cocktails, gre

Cons: price, portion size

definitely a favorite - Edit

I loved this place and will definitely go again. However, probably only on a special occasion. A friend of mine brought me here one time as a "surprise". I didn't expect it to be as upscale as it was, I should have dressed a lot nicer. We had reservations it was VERY expensive and of course the portions were small so we had to get three courses as well as dessert. All of it was very delicious though. I guess I liked the feeling of leaving not feeling like I over ate. Overall a good experience. Would recommend for a birthday or anniversary date for a vegan friend.

Pros: great tasting vegan food

Cons: expensive, small portions, slightly snobby staff

great experience - Edit

I picked Vedge for my birthday and had a great time! I had been wanting to try it for awhile and it didn't disappoint!! I was so full after dinner because we kept ordering more and more plates - too many good things to try. Atmosphere is sophisticated and the staff super-knowledgable.
