I was excited to try out 821 Cafe after reading a few reviews of it here and on a few other sites.
In short, I was severely disappointed by the food. There were only a handful of vegan options. I ended up ordered the "stuffed" portobello mushrooms over orzo. The vegetables were sort of just piled on top of 2 portobello slices and the entire dish was completely bland and flavourless. The side salad was... a salad but the balsamic vinagrette wasn't even very good.
My dining companion (also vegan) ordered the vegan burger with a side of chili. He was also not terribly impressed with either.
Maybe they were having an off day in the kitchen, but I won't be dining here again due to the lack of vegan options and my unimpressive dinner.
