First Review by DebbiePurdy

delicious and surprising - Edit

We tried Vibrance for the first time today and could not be happier with the amazing flavors and friendly service.

First, the menus online and in restaurant still say vegetarian, we were informed that they are only serving vegan options now - yay!

They brought out a seed-based cracker and dip for starters - yum. I had the Italian mushroom pocket and found the flavor to be complex and very satisfying. My dining companion had the veggie wrap, which was a very thin dry crepe-like wrap filled with delicious fresh veggies and offered with an amazing curry cream dip and a ginger date chutney. We were both really pleased.

The meal ended with a fabulous slice of banana strawberry cheesecake with a side of cashew sweet cream. All for $30 before tip

Pros: all vegan, gourmet, great price

Cons: limited hours, takes a while (but worth it!)

Wonderful! - Edit

The meal started with a plate of tomato-basil spread on lovely full grain/seed bread and a whole grain cracker. Delicious! Next Salad rolls in veggie rolls with a ginger, garlic and cashew sauce.

I had the Asian Salad... nice! My wife had the curried lentil and sweet potato stew... tremendous!

Karen, the owner was very caring and so devoted to our happiness. Highly recommended!!!

Pros: everything!

Cons: none!

I love the Sunday buffet. the initial non-Sunday menu wasn't too exciting for me but I think it's being updated.

Best Vegan food ever! - Edit

This is simply an excellent restaurant! Simple place
but clean and fresh. I admire so much the level of
talent it takes to pull this kind of cooking off. I am
a vegan cook myself so I do have a point of comparison.
Everything we ordered was delicious. Wish I lived
closed to Vibrance!

Easily the Best in ABQ (and beyond) - Edit

I recently moved to ABQ from New York City where excellent vegan options abound. Vibrance is the only place here that has vegan food on the level of the best restaurants I've tried. If you're just passing through, put it on your "must" list. Annapurna's is great, but if you only have one meal in ABQ come here. If you live here, put it in the rotation. Everbody should try the all you can eat Sunday brunch. It is rare to find exquisite raw deserts, imaginative dishes like a raw cashew mushroom tamale with a cashew cream, raw crackers, home baked seeded bread, well done staples like scrambled tofu, quinoa with veggies, a variety of fresh sprouts, raw soups, dips, and dressings and guacamole in an all you can eat setting. Everything is done with superbly fresh and high-quality ingredients. All that in a beautiful setting. Can't go wrong.

Pros: Ingredients are top-notch , Flavors well-balanced , Raw and vegan forward menu

Excellent raw foods - Edit

I have eaten at Vibrance twice and will continue going back. Their buffet is amazing with appetizers, soups, entrees, sides, and desserts - all raw. I loved everything from the croutons (I could eat a bowl of them straight) through the "cheesecake" desserts. They are very creative with their dishes. Nice atmosphere, nice people. Finally! a raw, mainly vegan restaurant in Albuquerque.

Pros: Creative, tasty dishes, Friendly staff, Fantastic variety

Best vegan since Green Zebra in Chicago - Edit

Just found out a new vegan restaurant opened up near us in Albuquerque, within walking distance.
We checked it out and found it was fantastic, gourmet inexpensive, and beautiful interior. The food felt really clean, yet inventive. I had the fresh kombucha, the mushroom turnover, ad the delicious raw pomegranate cheesecake. What a delight. This place has to be supported here, and Santa Feans should take a ride down just for this.

Pros: Great vegan food, Beautiful environment near nob Hill, Friendly staff
