Super Fun!!!

My husband and I have been here at least weekly and really really like it! The price is great (it beats Cafe Graditute), and the food has ALWAYS been really good! Our favorite dishes are the pad thai, and pesto ravioli- very good! The waiters, waitresses, and cooks are really great and friendly, great service, great food, and great prices! Enjoy! :)

not 100% vegan

I used to eat at herbivore on a consistent basis- until i befriended a longtime server of the company. much to my horror he informed me that the company uses BEEF BROTH in ALL if not a majority of their sauces. He also told me that their fake chicken that i absolutely loved contained EGG! i am DISGUSTED and APPALLED that anyone would blatantly lie about the vegan-purity of their restaurant. thankfully i found their deserts at rainbow in the mission district for frighteningly cheap. how...view more long had i been paying $7/slice for cake that sells in whole for $30? Unfortunately for me I absolutely trust this server and i will head his warning.view less

Disappointing, lazy cooking

This is lazy cooking at its weakest. I went for lunch, ordered a ""house made veggie burger"". What I got was a mustard and condiment sandwich, with a tiny sliver of house-made veggie burger material. Then they added undercooked, greasy potatoes, seasoned with a few pathetic flecks of pepper and a huge, disgusting puddle of bottled ketchup. Now add a wilted, underdressed lettuce and lettuce salad, and the picture is almost complete. Don't forget about the indifferent space cadet of a w...view moreaitress: ""We don't put ketchup on our plates."" Excuse me?\r
There's no excuse for this. Interesting, innovative vegetarian cooking can be delightful. This is cooking I'd be ashamed to feed to my kids.

Great food, Good Service

I love the food here. I cannot wait for the restaurant to open on Shattuck in Berkeley. I am a vegetarian...however I have brought non-vegan/vegetarians here. Even meat lovers and they loved this place. The waitress was very attentive. I have had no problems here the many times I've been. The portabello Mushroom burger is to die for!

Good Vegan Food, even for non-vegans

Hey, once I even forgot that it was a vegan restaurant ... I've been to Herbivore several times and I really like it. I recommend the grilled tofu sandwich and the lasagna. The service has been sometimes wanting, but I find the waiters/waitresses all genuninely NICE, which makes up for gaps in service. It's a popular place, so I assume I'm not the only one who agrees. Also good smoothies! That being said, it lacks the stellar-overall quality to make it one of your favorites in th...view moree city, but it is very good ...view less

Allow for the possibility of an awful meal.

I've visited herbivore 3 times and enjoyed it the first two. I was willing to exchange consistent food and thoughtful service for an all-vegan menu until today, when I was served a soggy veggie burger accompanied by fries that were cold, greasy and tough (I don't know how you make potatoes tough, but I'll bet cooking them hours ahead of time will do it.). Worse, my dining companion ordered something described as noodles with wasabi. It arrived as a bowl of noodles drowning in a horr...view moreid green sauce with the consistency of marinara that reeked of cilantro. It tasted as evil as it looked. I mentioned it to the server when she returned 20 minutes later to clear, but she seemed to think I was expecting too much. Hey, I'm basically like a dog who'll eat anything meatless. The bar's not that high. This experience was just horrible.view less

Yummy! With Style

Go Vegan! -for a day or as a life choice. This place will ""show you how it's done!"" I've been three times and decided to bring my parents when they visit. Herbivore have such a well rounded menu that no matter what your craving may be, you'll find what will satisfy it, without a doubt. I recommend the pesto tofu scramble or french toast for breakfast with a side of banana bread (one order includes 4 slices!). For the rest of the day go Itallian, Thai or hot sandwich! Do not for...view moreget the grilled corn and ask for Leah. She's a doll. She stays on her ""P's & Q's"".view less

Slow but Comforting

Wowsa is it nice to have a menu that is entirely vegan! I can eat ANYthing! Whee! The service is a little slow, but, you urban cats, is this so unusual for granola CA digs?! I think not. It's excellent comfort food, I don't feel bad for slouching, and I'm always happier when I leave. Good side-drink smoothies, devine salad dressing, and the most delicious vegan sandwiches this side of the IA City Co-op!

still waiting for that salad

Thirty minutes later and still no garden salad with tofu, though we did see them sitting in the food prep area for 15 minutes while the cook looked at us, we looked at the salads, the cook looked at us, we looked at the salads--you get the idea. Not sure if a little passive aggressive dance was going on or if the staff really is that inept. The server lady kept saying any minute and looked anxiously at the salads that sure looked ready to us, but maybe we didn't look hungry enough to...view more the cook. So we left and never looked back, and I imagine those two salads are still there along with the server lady looking at them.view less
