This place is amazing! The food is absolutely incredible, and even if you're a meat eater apparently it still satisfies. I went with some meat-eating friends (I'm a Veg) and they loved the food as much as I did and said they didn't even miss the meat!
I highly recommend this place to anyone. It's not super expensive, they have organic wines, and a warm atmosphere too. Highly recommended!
Refreshing. A restaurant that serves world class vegan cuisine! Finally, a vegetarian restaurant that doesn't try to serve food that looks or tastes like something it isn't! The chefs here create masterpieces that elevate vegetarian cuisine.
GREAT food and atmosphere.
Horizons food is AMAZING and the atmosphere at the restaurant is warm and relaxing. I always leave feeling uplifted and with my tastebuds celebrating.
I am vegetarian, but my husband is not, and this is one of his favorite restaurants too.
We had our wedding lunch at Horizons, and it was absolutely perfect.. the appetizers and served food were beautiful and delicious, the atmosphere was great, and they even surprised us with a mini wedding cake. I was worried that a couple of the guests may not like the vegan food, but everyone raved about the food.
Do not like the vegan label intimidate you. This is an excellent restaurant. It was nice to go into such a nice place and have a delicious, completely vegan meal. I recommend this to vegans and meat eaters. It's a great place. And do not forget the desert its the best part!
OK, but way, way overpriced.
I heard great things about Horizons , but the experience left me underwhelmed and feeling more than a little ripped off.
First off, the specialty drinks were simply awful. El Passion is some combination of Tequila, mashed fruit pulp, and lime. It was DIABOLICAL. Tasted like bitter orange peel mixed with booze. To be avoided at all costs! My friend was not impressed with her Mojito like drink either (can't remember the name of it). To be fair, the Long Island Ice Teas we ordered afterwards were expertly made and delicious.
The First Course: Vietnamese Bruschetta. Absolutely delicious. A cracker like piece of bruschetta topped with perfectly seasoned tofu and topped with a dollop of spicy mint relish. Probably one of the best tofu dishes I have ever eaten. Do not miss this one.
The Second Course: DO NOT ORDER THE GRILLED SEITAN!!! Tastes exactly, and I mean absolutely exactly like Morningstar Farms Steak Strips. The mashed potato and spinach could not mask the flat, chewy and outright boring taste of this spongy entree. It also happens to be the most expensive thing on the menu at $21. I was very disappointed. You could make the same thing at home for less than $10.
Dessert: Blueberry Cheesecake was delicious, but at $9 a slice, you'll hate yourself after you devour the whole thing within 3 or 4 bites.
All in all, the food isn't bad, but way, way overpriced. Treat yourself if you are curious, but honestly, there are better places to eat veg in the city (Singapore, falafel at Cedar's)
so good. All the rave reviews are well deserved. Horizons menu is the most creative and delicious i've ever tasted. If i HAD to stretch to find fault with this restaurant, it would be with the servers- I can't tell if they are slightly pretentious or slightly uncomfortable. Either way this place loses no points, i love it.
Best place to eat in Philly.
My girlfriend and I love this place, so much that we bought their cook book that they sell and when we have time we try to recreate their dishes. We live out in West Chester and every time we come into the city this is the only place we want to eat. The menu has a great selection and the people their are so friendly. It is also nice to see the owners working their, they add so much to the atmosphere
The foods is great, I took one of my "steak and potato" friends there and he was amazed at the Portobello mushroom dish that they had.
I wish I could figure out how to prepare tofu the way they do.
For vegetarians, vegans, and meat eaters alike. I was visiting Philadelphia with my boyfriend and his sister/brother-in-law. There was a wait at the dining area so we grabbed a table at the bar upstairs. We had the place all to ourselves. I can't say much about the beer or wine, but the tapas were to-die-for. We tried the gazpacho, a wild mushroom dish, and something with roasted red pepper. It was fresh and filling. The flavors were well blended, complimentary, and not overpowering. My favorite - the Jamaican BBQ seitan. I would go there again in a heartbeat, and so would my very carnivorous boyfriend.
Best Gourmet Vegan Food in Philly. I used to go to Horizons when it was in the 'burbs. I was worried that it would change when it reopened in Philly, and it did...for the better. Everything is great about this place. The ambience is just right, the presentation of the food, the food itself, the staff. Even my non-vegan friends love the food there. Make sure to get a reservation though.
