    They changed location from downtown San Francisco. More casual style, but still great atmosphere. Amazing food, go for the tasting menu. Nice cocktails as well, but too small! Get a reservation.

    Yes, it's all vegan. And tasty. Burmese red-lentil curry is creamy, hearty. Stiff cocktails like a Redwood Martini w/ redwood tips and Millennium Manhattan w/ infused rye (in large jars at the bar).

    Join one of their special dinners if you can, with wine pairings, of course! This is salad course of annual Farmers' Market Dinner.

    Blown away by the amazing vegan cooking, I didn't miss meat one bit. Pricey but worth it - there's a reason it's often called the best vegan restaurant in the country. Stay yes to the bread, it's 💣.

    Amazing flavor profiles for plant based! You can't go wrong with anything you order here. It's my favorite place for special occasions.

    Get the fried trumpet king mushrooms with Ponzu sauce as a starter. Amazing. I'm not a vegan but this place was delicious and ambience is great.

    Just a word to describe the 5 courses menu: feast. Totally worth the more than probably excessive amount of food, because you'll taste a great range of flavors and textures. Chapeau!

    This fine-dining establishment hits the jackpot with endless options for vegan eaters, like the crusted king trumpet mushrooms with arborio rice and coriander seed dredge, and citrus-yuzu ponzu. Read more

    Crusted mushrooms continue to be dopehouse. They had a BBQ-y tempeh dish that was awesome as well. All the desserts are great, especially the strawberry shortcake.

    This vegan fine-dining mecca's annual Southern Comfort night is a must. For one night a year, roulades and soufflés take a back seat to burger bars, deep-fried pickles, and ice cream sundaes.

    My favorite item on the menu is hands down the fried oyster mushrooms. I also love the cocktails and digestive elixir. You really can't go wrong ordering anything else on the menu either

    Always a great spot for a special dinner. Creative menu, sexy interiors. I'd say it's up there with the nicest vegan restaurants in the world.

    The best chef-driven vegan restaurant in San Francisco. One of the best in the world. The mushroom feast in the fall is worth reserving a table for.

    Oyster mushrooms, Brussel sprouts and Tamal environment and service was great. No need for reservations can sit at the community table

    Confirm the menu, particularly on a holiday (Mother's Day). What was listed & what was offered was quite different (& not very kid-friendly)

    Millennium is the go-to vegan place in SF. Try the Smoked Tempeh and wash it down with glass of wine. Read more

    I highly recommend the Brick Pastry Roulade. One of the best dishes I have had in recent memory. Thinking it would be a great choice for someone who is not very familiar with vegan cuisine Read more

    Maple black pepper glazed tempeh - so many flavors and the texture was incredible.

    Perhaps the best vegan restaurant on the western seaboard. The food is incredible from start to finish and a Foursquare check-in scores you a free dessert. ($40-70)

    The Crackerjack is a great peanut and vanilla infused bourbon cocktail. And order it without agave syrup for a boozier palette.

    Amazing. The jerk tempeh is a winner along with the chocolate almond layer cake.

    Excellent food but pricey, and the portions were smaller than hoped for. Vegetarian food being less calorie-dense, cordon bleu serving sizes don't really suit this menu.

    Best vegan/vegetarian restaurant in the U.S. that I know. 5 stars, and always blows away my meat-eating friends, too.

    If you can't get a reservation, try eating at the bar. It's the same stellar menu, but you get to chat with the bar tender and watch him/her make the drinks, which is fun.

    If the salted lemon-line ice cream is on the menu, order it. It's like a tasteful frozen margarita without the booze.

    Food is decent, ambiance is lackluster. If you're looking for really great vegan fare, opt instead for Gracias Madre or Oakland's Souley Vegan for half the cost.
