"I was so excited to visit this restaurant for the first time with hopes of having my entire family visit as there are very few vegan restaurants in the New York City area. I was quite disappointed. I ordered the Wild Mushroom Crepe, it lacked creativity and I felt that it was a dish I could have prepared at home for much less. The crepe was a soggy tortilla that seemed straight out of a package. The service was very good until I the end when it took quite a long time for the server to return with the bill. I was very disappointed and I have no plans to include a visit to Candle 79 in my future."

"We've dined a couple of times at Candle 79 and I have to say, the food quality and inventiveness is simply outstanding!!! The variety of interesting veggie choices is seemingly endless and very inventive. Sooooo tasty. As a non-veggie, I didn't miss meat, with such interesting options. The cocktail selection is also diverse and interesting.
Service is very nice, particularly by the welcoming staff.
Very worthwhile dining experience."

"Just returned from dinner there tonight. Made reservations 2 weeks prior for Friday night 6 pm dinner for 2. Yes, really. Guess they are really popular.
I was immediately seated at the table even though my friend did not arrive. I was seated on second floor in the booth large enough for 4. I asked for a smaller table closer to the window and was accommodated with no hesitation. However 10 min later, hostess apologized and informed me that we need to finish by 7:30 if we want to sit at that table. It was fine by me but unpleasant. I did read before they rush you when you come early :( Service by bus boys, waiter and bar personnel was great. Food was delicious. Seitan dishes are delicious! any of them. Wanted to try polenta fries and dessert but was too full with starters and entree. Oh well... There's always another time to return. Just make reservations later in the eve. Still recommend to try.

"This is my second visit to this outstanding vegan restaurant. It bears little resemblance to what you imagine vegan food to be like. This is gourmet food at its best! Try it, you'll be pleasantly surprised no matter what you eat every other day of the week!"

"They paid more attention to the white seated table than us perhaps because we black. Our food arrived later than the table seated near us even though we ordered first."

"We were disappointed with our experience here. The food was good but the overall ambiance of the restaurant was not at all where you'd want to go on a night out. There was no background music, it was quiet to the point of being vacuous. The waiters tried but didn't seem to have the knowledge behind the plates. It's hard to find vegan food of this caliber so I give them credit there and the ravioli and seitan dishes were delicious but it's hard to enjoy a meal out when the vibe is so uncomfortable."
