As vegan connoisseurs of over 20 years and animal activists, we consider ourselves to be ambassadors of veganism. We are very reluctant to say anything unflattering about a vegan restaurant. However, Millennium does veganism a great disservice.
We had to apologize to our non-vegan guests and assure them that vegan food is really not that bad. Food ranges from unpalatable to bland and unimaginative at best. The tempeh left a bitter taste that wouldn’t go away and the 2 pieces of crusted mushroom ($20) were almost inedible. Tofu skewers were o.k, but charging over $10 for 6 tiny pieces of mediocre tofu is offensive.
Their chocolate desserts and décor were able to partially redeem their abject failure as vegan gourmet experience (notwithstanding their far below par cheesecake).
Please consider trying one of SF’s many other wonderful vegan restaurants, like Herbivore or Geranium followed by Maggie’s Mudd (heaven!) for dessert.
