Possibly the most excellent vegan restaurant We have had the pleasure of dining in!
Every time I go to Candle 79 its an amazing experience . This time was no different .
Fantastic selections on the menu. Great quality.
In spite of several conversations which were very welcoming they were not ready for our family celebration. When we arrived on time The staff was polite but unenthusiastic and they had to wait for permissions to provide enough chairs for our table. So we all stood around. Waiting for permission which eventually arrived. The room was dingy and air conditioning was not working. Food was very good except for desserts which were mediocre. $600 dinner was not worth the price. And it did not feel at all like a celebration environment. Good enough for diner type feeling dinner only
This was our first time at Candle 79 and suffice it to say, we’ll definitely be back. The staff was extremely polite and attentive, the food was excellent (vey fresh and very well seasoned), and the music was perfect; loud enough to hear, yet soft enough to not disturb the mood.
We love The Candle!
We enjoyed every item from app to fantastic dessert! Highly recommend and will be back.
The loveliest oasis in NYC! And the food is amazing.
Salads were good. The nut cheese was fine. I had the stuffed squash special it was excellent. The flat bread was good. Dessert cannoli was ok. The fresh juices were wonderful and a great alternative to alcohol. We will definitely return.
One of my favorite plant-based restaurants in NYC. Never disappoints.
becoming my neighborhood go to. love the food, the mood, the location.
Seriously delicious food. Miraculous. Regardless of being vegan or not,the food is so good it challenges one’s cooking and eating notions.
First time bringing my date. He loved everything Thank yiu
Food is pretty good (all vegan), but very expensive for what it is.
Wonderfully prepared, healthy food with gluten-free options. A great discovery!
I wanted to visit this one for quite a while - and it did not disappoint! Great food, large portions ( had to take out half of the starter to have enough room for the main) and very friendly staff. Next time I am in the area, I would come back!
We had lunch here before going to the Metropolitan Museum. The food was very good - particularly the tomato-basil soup. Our waiter was great - very courteous and willing to answer all of our questions. We love the Met and often struggle to find someplace interesting to eat with a nice atmosphere. This fit the bill.
It was our 20th wedding anniversary. The food was amazing as usual. The watermelon salad was out of this world!!
Always enjoy this food even though I'm FAR FROM A VEGAN. Everything is so thought out and perfectly prepared. Delicious...
Incredible what they can do with vegetarian fare. Everything was delicious.
Not our fistst visit and we will definitely be back.
The burrito was outstanding
Always fantastic! Every time I come to NYC I always have dinner at Candle 79 I have never been disappointed.
Amazing place with great vegetarian options. Enjoyed our visit and really recommend it to everyone.
Lovely place. Food arrived quickly, staff were polite and attentive, and when I requested a particular spot, they readily accommodated.
My guest asked not to have anything with soy in it. We ordered a salad and asked to have the edemame removed. We were under the impression that the server understood as he confirmed having heard the order. Then what happens I thankfully noticed the edemame in thr salad and asked to have it removed. If I had not noticed my guest would have suffered. Our water was not refilled and we were not asked if our experience was going well whilst dining. A friendly fruit fly made it's way to our table, please keep an eye out for them.
Everything was delicious and beautifully presented. Waiter was great especially with allergy our concerns.
We were served by a highly aggressive, impatient waiter. The food was okay, not more than that. I have eaten in many vegetarian restaurants. Most of them were much better.
Went there for our wedding anniversary. Absolutely a treat, great ambiance, food was fantastic and service was warm, friendly and accurate. Will definitely return.
everything was amazing, but my boyfriend and I were on a romantic date and it was ruined after a group of 7 loud people were seated directly next to us. it ruined the whole vibe for us despite the fact that the food and the customer service was amazing. very upsetting to have our night disturbed like that.
Great food!! Great ambiance!
Theres nothing bad to say about this place staff was friendly and the food was amazing
A beautiful atmosphere, and truly delicious and innovative vegan fare. Loved it!
This fine dining for a vegan dinner. The food was fantastic though a bit pricey. The restaurant itself
could use a bit refreshing but the food was so exceptional that the decor was not important. I have visited
vegan restaurants all over the world and this is my favorite!!!!
The food was delicious! We will go back on our next visit to NYC.
Great vegan food. Very fast service. Unique drink menu
Parents visiting from out of town.
My partner is vegan. I am a carnivore. We both found the food delicious and stisfying
I'm a vegan and absolutely LOVE this restaurant. Plan on coming back again and again.
One of my most favorite restaurants. It's so nice to have a fine dining experience that supports a more conscious, caring community while reducing our negative impact on the environment.
Excellent service! Food was quick and delicious and the staff very attentive. I love this restaurant for vegan food
As a food professional, I love dining at Candle 79. The food is delicious not to mention inventive and attractive. I always leave feeling satiated and well taken care of....with the added benefit of knowing I've eaten organic, good for my body vegetables I can't say this happens often, but I am always so happy to have dinner at Candle 79!
