Worst dining experience I've had in a while... – Since I date a vegetarian, I'm familiar with many of the veggie/vegan resturants in town. I've had the good and the bad, but Power Plant is just plain ugly. Nothing feels right at this resturant. The dining furniture is cold and uncomfortable, the lighting is poor, and the open duct work makes for an aucoustic nightmare. It seriously seems like the owners ran out of funding and decided to open a resturant anyway...the space is blatantly unfinished.
The same disorganization can be found in the kitchen. While the menu seems interesting at first glance, there really are no risks taken. Nearly every item on the menu is either fried or out of stock. It took three tries to find an available entree. One couple sitting near us actually left after getting "sorry, we're out of that item" from the waiter several times! And this was early on a Friday night. Needless to say, the selection was limited. The appetizer sampler that we did have (all fried) was medicore at best.
I would comment on the entree that I ordered, but I never tasted it. After waiting approximately an hour, and then being told that the item I ordered was being thawed (yum) and prepared, it was lights out. We promptly cancelled our order, paid for the weak appetizer, and left.
The resturant business isn't easy, and clearly Power Plant is a first time venture. I give it another 6 months, tops. You will not be impressed, you will feel uncomfortable, and you will ultimately be dissatisfied with the experience as a whole. The 1.5 rating I am giving this place is generous. Avoid at all costs!
Great Food ...Worth it – Don't believe the haters!! this food is great....what might throw people off is the decor that is a bit on the"bare" side and the unique homey set-up, but other than that.....It still is really Great food. I am a vegetarian and was taken aback by the excellent mock hot wings!! There sweet potato fries are "sweet ;)" my favorite thing is the fish sandwich. oh, i don't work there, but i would hate to see a good restaurant go down because of a decor issue. I'd rather have really good food, then really good decor. Atlanta doesn't have that many vegetarian spots and we need all the ones we can get. Great food ...worth it
WHOEVER WROTE THOSE REVIEWS MUST WORK THERE! – Loud obnoxious decor. check.
uncomfortable seating. check.
xeroxed brunch menu, yet no brunch for 2-3 weeks. check.
vegan philly cheesesteak that seemed more like a multi colored bell pepper salad on top of a stale bun. yes, check.
cole slaw that resembled rabbit food....
well, you get the picture. nothing about this place is good. sure, the food is edible but with prices like this place I would much rather have LUSH back. now that was a good vegan restaurant.
Unbelievable!! – The best veggie dining experience i've had in Atlanta since "Wishfullfilling Tree" closed years ago. Chicken and Waffles was heaven on a plate and the service was star quality. Treat yourself - visit today!
VEGAN COMFORT FOOD!!! – This place is great!! They just recently opened, and have since been providing the vegans (and non-vegans) of atlanta with outstanding vegan comfort food and spectacular desserts. The funky soul chicken is southern fried with mashed potatoes, gravy, and asparagus. SO GOOD!! The menu includes mini-burgers, fried shrimp po'boys, delicious salads, sandwiches, delicious "fancy" meals reminiscent of lush (which i miss), CHEESECAKES AND SOFTSERVE ICE-CREAM! and it's all vegan! In my opinion, it's a much more flavorful and funky alternative to soul vegetarian. Try it, you'll like it!
