I went there this weekend. It was awesome (fancier setting/more expensive than the reviews/menu make it sound though) - I shared the pickle plate (beets, sesame green onions and burdock), kale salad (with pomegranate and pistachio brittle), mushroom salad (sauteed mushrooms on greens with savory corn-pop tasting croutons - served with a red peppery sort of aioli and tarragon was involved somehow too) and had the spicy tofu buns to myself (not spicy at all, but tasty). I don't think there were any vegan desserts.
The kale salad was definitely the highlight - it was amazingly good. It's a really good place to go with omnis who are too skeptical to take to an all vegan place. The vegan options are really good but not 'weird' to non-vegans.
