Service was stretched too far. Super hot day, with plenty of room inside for distancing. Why allow outside when so hot and waiter stretched so? Lunch ordered was dry.

Everything we ordered was delicious - the chili, enchiladas verdes and creme brulee. Our waitress was extremely helpful and friendly. I will definitely return.

We had a family dinner for 11 people at Blind Faith Café. The veggie crew among us were so happy to have an entire menu to choose from versus a few items. Those who aren't vegetarians also enjoyed the food! They have a great variety of dishes. I had the Pasilla, recommended by our waiter. It was SO good. Very flavorful! Tasted the enchiladas and their take on Mongolian stir fry. All really delicious! Our waiter was really helpful and super efficient! All in all, a really great experience! We will be back for sure!

The food, as usual, was excellent.
Aside from taking our order and bringing the check, we never saw the waitress: she never checked how the food was, or offered a second drink. It took at least 10 minutes to get our check, and that entire time was spent trying to find her. When she finally made an appearance she walked right past us to check up on a table behind us. Absolutely not the service we've grown accustomed to at this establishment.

I love the variety and creativity of the dishes that are offered. Too often vegetarian offers at restaurants are unimaginative and not particularly appetizing.

Very pleasant restaurant. I enjoyed my meal, my husband found the sauce on his a little sweet for his taste, but otherwise fine. Our waiter was great, and enjoyed the ambiance.

Potstickers: dough thick and gooey, sauce tasteless.
Pear and goat cheese Salad: pears are from the can, very scarce and hard to find goat cheese crumbs.
Spinach Lasagna: they “forgot” to put cheese and spinach, so just layers of pasta with sauce.
Tiramisu with chocolate shavings: if you can imagine tiramisu cake with no espresso and no rum, you end up with dry lady fingers and cream. Plus they did not put any chocolate shavings.
Kung Pao: very good.

We told our waiter about all our concerns and he did nothing about it: did not call manager, did not take food off the bill.

I love this place so much! The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable about the food. And the food is amazing! I’ve loved every meal I’ve had here. As a vegetarian, I really appreciate this place. Even my carnivore boyfriend is obsessed with the food!

Definitely recommend!

P.s. definitely try their tiramisu

Blind Faith is my top choice, when meeting a friend to chat: the food is fresh, delicious; the menu offers a wide range of healthy choices, and bancha tea made from scratch. Wine and beer are available. The space is lovely, the ambience cozy and quiet, and the service friendly and efficient. All adds up to being perfect for both me...and my friends!

I'm not a vegetarian but my daughters are, so I went along with an open mind - and it was really outstanding. I started with the risotto balls, which were cooked perfectly, then followed with a well prepared dish of black bean enchiladas and finished with the peanut butter cake. The cake was perfectly moist and had a wonderful flavor that was substantial enough without being dense. I will come back again for sure:)

Potsticker starter was over doughed and oily. Kung Pao entree was very good. Seitan (Marsala) was overcooked and leathery. Our server kindly took it off our bill. She should be commended for this. Blind Faith is a perennial for us, so this was disappointing. We will try again.

Service was definitely better than the food. Not that the food was bad but what I picked was very heavy on the sauce.
