Vegetarian Underground was fantastic! Each night is a different food theme, the last time I was there it was Mediterranean (hummus, salads, soup, veggie-meat-kabobs, etc...). The environment is very friendly, peaceful, and accommodating. I've been a vegetarian for years and it's great to find a restaurant like this.

Have eaten here twice and am delighted. The atmosphere is lovely, warm and friendly. Much of the produce comes from the Itano's own garden so it's really fresh. The 5 course Thanksgiving dinner was beautifully prepared, delicious, and truly satisfying. Last Saturday I sat down to a sumptuous and scrumtious Middle Eastern dinner. The lentil soup was so savory and delicious I could have had a complete meal with just the soup and salad. The fried potatoes are addictive. A tender slice of potato with a tender crispy tempura. The hummas, falafel, tabouli all delicious. The babaganoush was the best I have eaten...smooth and creamy. Loved the shish kabob with pineapple and how refreshing to have quinoa instead of rice. Now for the dessert. I didn't think I could eat another bite until I tasted Lloyd's baklava. It was this wonderful concoction of tender phyllo with nuts and something deliciously sweet and warm with spices. Add a slice of moist chocolate cake to round out the meal and complete with coffee and teas. Wow.
