Two vegans among six relatives. First time at the restaurant. Amazing menu. The food was the best vegan food I have ever had in 8 years of being vegan. The dishes are wonderfully prepared and spiced. Can't say enough about the quality of the food....More

Felt like vegetarian after lots of seafood and chicken on our trip. Found Walnut Grille not too far from our Marriott hotel. The “Hungarian goulash” was divine! The wait staff was very attentive. Had we stayed another night at the hotel we would have gone...More

a step up from pub food, relaxed service, and a good range of options, our family really enjoyed their meal here. It manages to feel like a good restaurant that happens to be vegetarian, rather than something evangelistic. Meat eaters we took enjoyed their meals...More
