In our failed attempt to go to the NYC Vegetarian Food Festival on April 3rd, we opted for a better option than waiting in a mile-long line in the cold. We decided to have a good hearty meal at Angelica Kitchen. We always let our stomachs

The interior is not especially fancy, but the food is always good. The specials are tasty, and I like to get the steamed veggies of the day with the brown rice gravy. Love the apple cider, and the hot chai is good, too.

I tried giving this place a few chances, leaving more disappointed than the last time. The food is plainly bad, extremely bad at times where on one embarassing occasion I had to excuse myself for gagging.
The service is aweful. None of the waiters seem to care about your time nor enjoyment. Nor obviously their tip.

Pros: corn bread

Cons: service, food, cash only

Great Vegan food. The corn bread is good and the chili is wonderful. The Dragon Bowl is very large and often the wee Dragon is plenty filling. Delicious deserts too. The wait can be long but worth it.

I wish that things were different, but you are allwed to BYOB, but not outside snacks/food for a toddler. There is no children's menu (and service is slow). Then they will make you remove the food so that the toddler screams and then you leave- shame on Angelica Kitchen- any parents out there UNDERSTAND if a hungry toddler is behaving and quiet, don't PULL the snacks away (maybe next time we would know, but not an appropriate thing to expect of a parent at the time)- obviously the man with the beard is a nice gentleman, but clueless to life and does not have children...sometimes one must pull themselves out of the clouds and deal with REALITY--many yuppy clients may not know, but true good understanding people who love children do...afterall, be nice to children, they are the future generation- we will go to the many other NICE veg. places in the city--MANY exsist that appreciate the next generation of vegetarians.

Pros: Excellent concept, vegetarian, healthy

Cons: not children friendly and clueless owner/manager?

I've been wanting to try Angelica's for quite some time and finally went this Saturday night. Although the food was pretty good (though nothing we couldn't have cooked ourselves at home just as well), the service was atrocious. First, our waiter did not introduce himself and probably said a total of 5 words to us all night. He literally just stood at the table looking at us when it came time to order. Although we were all vegetarians, it would have been helpful for the waiter to ask if anyone had any questions about the menus since not everyone is familiar with typical vegetarian foods, like seitan, etc. Our appetizers came out incredibly quick, which was not necessarily a bad thing. However, before we had even gotten halfway through the appetizers our entrees were literally shoved onto the table and once again, the waiter said absolutely nothing to us. Also, they rushed to clear our table after we had finished our entrees, but for some unknown reason left a hummus appetizer plate on the table throughout our dessert. Plus, the restaurant was still more than halfway full when we left so there was just no excuse for rushing us the way they did. I do have to say that the hostess was very sweet though.
I fully support any restaurant that seeks to provide healthy, organic and sustainable food, but given the variety of options available in the City I would likely not go back to Angelica's again.

Pros: Healthy, Vegetarian food with a wide range of options

Cons: Service

Vegetarian food isn't always healthy, but this place really is. I had the Tempeh Reuben and a cauliflower soup, both of which I thought were great. The tofu cheesecake however I found to be gross. My fellow diner though loved it! To each his own. I recommend.

went to angelica kitchen tonight, mediocre place. we put our name on the list and went to grab a bottle of wine. ten minutes later, we came back but the aloof hostess didn't even remember us. anyway, the waitress was below avg. she was nice enough but we only saw her twice - i thought she left the city for the long weekend. it does have a nice atmosphere and was packed. the quarters are tight, esp. if you're a duo, but i like that. food was frankly pretty bad. the hummus appetizer is hard to mess up, but they only gave enough stale pita chips to eat 1/3 of the hummus. my dashi noodles were extremely bland, and the only thing they had to help it out was some cayenne pepper. the upside, byo and it was pretty cheap. given the plethora of byos in the east village, you're not missing out if you skip this place, unless you can't eat anything but bland organic, vegetarian food.

Although the service was outstanding, and every single salad dressing I've ever had here have been good enough to have me running back for more, some of the dishes were off-putting. But, as I mentioned, the service is outstanding, so if you do order something that you absolutely hated, they're pretty nice about taking it off your bill. Granted, it means that it's best to ask questions of the servers before you order something.

For example, I ordered the cashew hummus, expecting it to be a creamy sort of mound with some vegetables. Even after seeing in the description that there were raw (soaked, of course) chickpeas in there, I figured that they had some way of grinding it all down enough that it'd come pretty close to cooked hummus. I took less than one bite, and couldn't continue. I asked the waiter for another selection, and told him that I couldn't really eat the rest of it. He cleared the plate away, and came back to tell me that they'd be taking it off the bill.

Definitely try one of the vegetable juices. They really pack a lot of flavour, and are worth trying out, especially if you haven't had freshly made juice before. Also, give the specials a whirl if you're going with two people. The special is listed on the menu itself, complete with description. Meanwhile, because the portion of the special is so large, it's the perfect size to share with someone.

Everytime I go to this restaurant I am inspired and reminded why it's great to be a vegetarian. They really keep it interesting, decor is nice, service is generally good... A winner all around, even for meat eaters.

Angelica's Kitchen has been one of my favorite restaurants for years. I am not vegan, and neither are most of the people who love to dine there with me. Their food is consistantly great and the dimly lit, amber dining room is a calming joy to fill up in. I love the Angelica corn bread which is satisfyingly dense, moist and crisp on the outside. Pair it with the miso tahini spread and your eyes will roll back in your head (I swear). The specials are usually the best offerings on the menu, although I'm always slightly embarassed to have to say the names out loud (Corn on the Fourth of July!). Everybody needs a laugh, I guess. Recently tried the hot open faced tempeh sandwich and loved it. The walnut lentil pate served with rice crackers is rich and creamy and delicious. Norimaki always hits the spot. Save room for dessert (any of the parfaits, or anything with the maple tofu whip is beyond good) and order a hibiscus cooler. Have fun.

I have been a vegetarian for over 10 years who often dabbles with vegan food; so I am well acquainted with these diets. Let me just say my meal last night at Angelica Kitchen actually got me thinking of a nicely seasoned pork chop again. This restaurant serves vegan food with such blandness that I was regretting being a vegetarian. My group had a dragonbowl which some sauces (that were alittle more flavorful, but still not progressive in flavor) and some of their specials which included a bean chili and asparagus dish; although somewhat pleasing to the eyes, the food was seriously lacking in the flavor department. What is so confusing is that this place is always busy?? If you really want to taste vegan food with intense flavors and textures, please visit the Tiengarden Vegan restaurant on 170 Allen street; so far, this restaurant has been one of the few vegan restaurants who really take vegan cuisine to a new level. Needless, to say my meal at Angelica Kitchen left me bitterly disappointed and also two of the people from the group got severe stomach upsets after eating there......possibly a lack of freshness in the food...who knows....but this place is one to avoid.

Pros: Service Staff was very polite and friendly, there was prompt seating

Cons: I would suggest their cooking staff go back to culinary school to learn how to cook vegan/vegetarian food.

Great interesting variety of foods, and friendly service. I like the term "assertive condiments", but I prefer to praise the creative transfer of "regular" dish types into vegan/veg versions. It made me feel at home again.

I've been there a few times. The food is pretty good, but the tempeh on the tempeh sandiwich I had was cold and bland, tasted like it had been sitting out for a while. I go more frequently to the take out side located right next door, and I have to say, they need some training. The workers don't seem at all to be concerned with prompt service. They are very bad at calling out your order once it has arrived from the kitchen so that you can pick it up. It's very irritating. One time my fresh juice sat there for like 10 minutes before the guy behind the counter gave it to me--10 minutes!! And I'd been standing there waiting the whole time yet he didn't say anything. Another time the girl behind the counter (the only one there helping several customers) carried on a conversation with one of them, either a friend or a regular, all the while neglecting orders that were sitting ready to be given to customers, of which one was mine. I wish this could be brought to the attention of the owner/management. Hopefully they will read this, as I really wish the staff would do a better job at this. Otherwise the food is good and I'll continue to go there, and recommend it, especially the take out; just be prepared to wait.

i loved this restaurant so much! i can't stop thinking about the wee dragon bowl my friend ordered. (oh i should have ordered one too.. although i loved the 3 item picnic plate i ordered... the norimaki with seitan was fantastic!) i kept stealing pieces of pumpkin and squash from my friend's plate. :) and i feel so inspired to make my own dragon bowls at home (minus the seaweed, i'm not very into sea vegetables, i don't mind them in sushi rolls). i asked our waiter what a regular sized dragon bowl was like because the wee dragon bowl was a lot of food.. he says it's served on the same plate but piled twice as high... that would be a satisfying meal...

their dessert of the day was a pear hazlenut spelt crumble with maple-nut whipped cream. it was amazing!!

i loved the atmosphere of the restaurant. my only possible complaint was the table we sat at.. it was right in the path of where people walked in and out of the kitchen. i actually think they shouldn't have a table there... the food was a good distraction though! :D

GREAT vegan restaurant! The most expensive item on the menu is $16 and this is for the daily specials. Most items range between $6-$10, which is EXTREMELY reasonable for NYC. This place is designed for vegans and those that appreciate vegan food and a healthy lifestyle. (So those who thought the food was "bland" probably were just craving something deep fried and covered in salt and oil.) The daily specials and desserts are the best thing on the menu. You will definitely find something you like here but it may take some serious hunting through the many options in the menu. The staff is extremely helpful and knowlegable in this sense. Sometimes yes, the wait is long, but it's worth it. Remember to bring cash (they dont take credit cards and for a VERY good reason) and an open mind. You'll leave happy, and with money leftover.

....take them to Angelica's and ask them what's missing! Their answer will invariably be, absolutely nothing. This place is an institution for a reason....namely, the freshest, tastiest, most guilt-free menu on the planet. A little pricier than most veggie restaurants, but worth it if only for the dessert menu (as a wheat-sensitive, diabetic vegan, there aren't too many places I can even LOOK at desserts, and this may be the only one where I can actually EAT what they serve me....AND ask for seconds!) Favourite post-workout protein load - the three-bean chili.

Angelica's Wee Dragon Bargain dish is a big, delicious, healthy meal that I HAVE to have every so often! Service here has always been friendly. This is one of my favorite veggie restaurants in the city; I've been coming here for years. I strongly recommend the Angelica cornbread (the dense, wheatless kind) with tahini spread. Yum!

You never knew healthy food could be so good. I own their cookbook too, but it's easier and better just to go there.
Always get a muffin or cookie to go, you'll wish you had it later.

Expect crowds during typical hours. Empty at lunch time during weekdays.

Hearing good things about this place I was hoping it would live up to the expectations. Unfortunately the food is bland, the stereotype of vegetarian food. The soup was fairly good, the meal itself pretty boring, the dessert even worse. Stick to the soups. The staff are friendly and knowledgable.

Don't sit at the communal table unless you want to engage in conversation with complete strangers.

Over-priced. Average Food. Obnoxious staff. Most dishes could easily be made at home with a quick trip to your local organic grocery store (for a fraction of the cost). All the ambiance of your corner Starbucks.

I went to Angelica's for the first time with my fiance over valentine's day, and we fell in love! He is not vegan, but still could appreciate the fresh and mindfully prepared food. The service was perfect: attentive but not pushy, and the atmosphere was warm but not stuffy, it made for a very nice but not elegant evening. We ordered several courses of small shared dishes for an incredibly good price. You're even encouraged to bring your own wine! I highly recommend this restaurant, and we will visit every time we go west from the bay!

It's kind of expensive. My lady tried the editorial hyped "Dragon bowl" and I ordered the daily specials! Ah! It's just blah, blah... and bland. The service is fine but truly I can't rate service since waitstaff have good and bad days, and you know the saying is " if it's not that bad, It's good". But not for foods, folks. Especially, when you convince your partner to go for that particular restaurant for that ...special occassion! you would be silent for days when you walk out of that door. There are much better vegetarian and healthy eateries out there in the Village. Don't you egree?

Although I truly love to support vegetarian, health food and vegan establishments, i was somewhat disappointed in how Angelica's has de-evolved over the past few years.

A few years ago I would have rated it much higher, but now - with other "better" choices such as Candle Cafe, Good Health Cafe and others, the dated menu, crowded atmosphere are "spacey" service is not the greatest choice.

I truly love and admire the "singles" community table and other good traditions. I also like the "desgn your own" plates where beans and veggies and soy products abound, but other than that - I'm staying uptown.

Go to this restaurant if you're vegan, for the healthy aspect, or for the novelty. But if you're not a vegetarian or not very used to this type of cuisine, be forewarned that this is a different type of eating and so don't expect to be immediately won over. By all means go with an open mind, but you may find it difficult to adjust to the blandness and, more importantly, the texture (crumbly).

Overall, the menu is hit or miss. I give them credit for trying to be inventive, but it doesn't always work. It's also a bit expensive, but I guess that's what you pay for food that's supposed to be healthier. I suggest you bring some wine so at least you'll have that to get you through the meal if you order wrong.

This was the restaurant that showed me I could be a vegetarian, my favorite resaturant in the country as well!

Pros: fabulous food, healthy desserts, friendly atmosphere

Cons: long lines, only one restroom

Organic, unadultered, mouth-wateringly delicious veggie cuisine. This is my favorite restaurant in the country.

Good for any budget. Prices vary depending on what and how much you order. Daily specials are a bit more and well worth. Take your appetite, the portions are large.

Pros: Friendly service, Good value, Consistently tasty

The food (even the *chili*) is incredibly bland and overpriced for the portion size. Unless you're worried about sticking to a vegan diet, I could name 10 other restaurants (including vegetarian) in the area that are better.
Perhaps, though, my disappointment is heightened by the fact that the smarmy host kept us waiting 45 minutes for a table.

My friends love this place, but truthfully, the only thing AK has going for it is its continued novelty. Healthy, organic, macrobiotic food is wonderful...but not here. It's unimaginative and often bland. The lines are horribly long because everyone downtown is dying to be served by some of the waitstaff that is literally almost falling down from the weight of their faux-ennui. They're actually the most amusing aspect of the whole production.

The food is fantastic, delicious, fun and healthy-imagine that....and you can bring your own bottle of wine. Sometimes hard to get a table, very busy Thurs.-Sat. Great staff, accomadating, very laid back.

Pros: Inexpensive, Healthy, Easy

For vegan restaurant food, it's not bad. It can be a bit bland and crumbly ... but, hey, that's vegan food for you. The reason I don't come here more often is the general ambience of the place. The waitstaff is vaguely chilly and sanctimonious. And the atmosphere is reminiscent of a food co-op in a college town. Maybe this is a draw for some people, but not for me. This is NOT the place to take your non-veg friends to in order to impress them with how far vegetarian dining in NYC has come.
