    Plantscape is an extraordinary multi-course prix fixe vegan delight! It feels like a Michelin star restaurant, catering 100% to vegans and vegetarians. I can always trust the unique plates will be delightfully tasty, and different for every event.

    Amazing, creative, inspired food. I thought I knew a decent amount about foodie food because I’ve watched every dragon of Top Chef, but nope. Each course was new, surprising and freakin delicious. I’ve never laughed at the food I’ve ate. It was simply so good that I was giddy!

    My wife and I attended an event in Oceanside. We are always looking for healthier restaurants. The Plot seemed like a great place to eat dinner. Everything was excellent from A to Z. Our waitress Maria, was Awesome. Tell her we are sorry for talking to her a little too much. Next time we visit Oceanside, we will need to eat at the Plot again. -Jeffrey Anderson.

    I was really excited to try this plant based restaurant. I had been disappointed at the Carlsbad Plot, but I have several friends tell me that this Plot was a whole different thing. ANd it was. We brought our own champagne, our server was very gracious. The food was excellent from the amuse-bouche through amazing starters (cheezy truffle fries and roasted cauliflower through the mains - I had the risotto - while there was a lot of food, it was absolutely excellent and even though its a fair drive, I will be back.

    Never know what to say on these reviews but let’s keep to the basics. Food was fantastic. Service was wonderful the overall vibe of the place great. If you or your loved one happens to be a vegan, it’s a wonderful place to spend in the evening sharing a meal. Every time we come here, my fiancé loves to walk the garden and see all the fresh food that they put into their meals growing right outside.

    As a none vegan I found the dishes to be very creative, tasty, and more savory and satisfying than I expected. Generally the food was great (irrespective of vegan/non-vegan). The desserts were not a hit at the table, I would for sure go back (regularly) and just skip the desserts.

    We had a fantastic evening at the Plot. Two vegans and two none vegans who enjoyed their vegan meal as much as we enjoyed ours. The food was brilliant, we all liked the roast cauliflower and the 'crab' cake for your starter and the risotto for the main was amazing. The staff were great and just a lovely and lively place We will be back

    Simply out standing. May just be our favorite restaurant. We ordered two specials: lions mane calamari and the charred sweet potato, both dishes accompanied by delectable greens and delicate but oh so tasty sauces. Our appetizer was the roasted cauliflower, also excellent. We’re going back this evening!

    Comfort food with a refined elegance that is the best tasting. And it’s plant-based. Amazing for all foodies of all likes. Cool drinks. Friendly staff that have pride in where they work. A little loud if you sit outside due to PCH traffic.

    We booked dinner 5pm on a Saturday. It wasn’t busy at that time (which we liked). We were greeted straight away by Kat (sp?). She was awesome. Greeted us warmly, made sure we understood the menu and she was knowledgeable about the menu items. She checked in with us regularly throughout dinner (but was not intrusive). All the food that we had was well presented and tasty, with fresh ingredients. Food courses arrived just at the right time. Always a good experience at The Plot.
