Fern, Flavors from the Garden
- 10AM-2PM, 5PM-9PM
I can't say enough good things about this place. Everything we had from the menu was absolutely amazing. My hair stylist recommended this place to us and we weren't disappointed! The vegan food was absolutely amazing, it reminded me a lot of this vegan restaurant called Plum Bistro in Seattle. I think this is a great place for anyone to eat, even if you aren't vegan!
This past Saturday, we planned a double date with our friends. They made a 5:15 reservation for all of us. Due to some scheduling conflicts, they arrived at 5:15 and we couldn't get there until 6. In the meantime, they ordered drinks and appetizers. As soon as we arrived, we order more drinks, dinner...everything was great. Around 7:15, dinner was winding down and we were looking at the dessert menu when a manager came over and informed us we had five more minutes at our table. Apparently, another party of four was there with a reservation so they asked us to leave. We stated we were about to order dessert and he repeated that we would have five more minutes. I might understand this if we'd been sitting at our table for hours after the plates had been cleared, but this was minutes after we'd finished. Perhaps they were annoyed that part of our party hadn't arrived until 6, but our friends had ordered plenty of food and drinks in the meantime, ensuring they were making money from our table. I used to be a server and I understand it can be stressful when there are parties waiting, but I don't think it's unreasonable to spend two hours at a nice dinner with friends on a Saturday night. Lingering over a glass of wine and dessert is one of the perks of going out in the first place. There were other four tops that had arrived at the same time as we did that weren't asked to leave. If I want to be rushed, I'll eat fast food. As a vegan, it's super disappointing because this was one of the best dining options in the area. I won't be back.
Each and every visit I've had here has been very amazing. Staff are always helpful and food is absolutely delicious. One of the best restaurants in the area for vegan/vegetarian dishes. Request Shelby as your waitress.
The first thing we noticed was the atmosphere and how cozy it was. We ordered the cheese plate & the broccoli alfredo pasta and let me say this is one of the best vegan foods we have found so far. It reminded us of a vegan restaurant we tried in Rome, Italy last year which was also amazing. I would highly recommend visiting Fern if you are traveling through Charlotte.
If you want to eat at the best vegan vegetarian restaurant,, this is it!! Amazing flavors, high quality ingredients and innovation that keep you coming back for more! Love the cheese plate and dessert is yummy!!! Can't wait to go back!
