This place is amazing! The food is absolutely incredible, and even if you're a meat eater apparently it still satisfies. I went with some meat-eating friends (I'm a Veg) and they loved the food as much as I did and said they didn't even

A restaurant that serves world class vegan cuisine! Finally, a vegetarian restaurant that doesn't try to serve food that looks or tastes like something it isn't! The chefs here create masterpieces that elevate vegetarian cuisine.

Horizons food is AMAZING and the atmosphere at the restaurant is warm and relaxing. I always leave feeling uplifted and with my tastebuds celebrating.

I am vegetarian, but my husband is not, and this is one of his favorite restaurants too.

We had our wedding lunch at Horizons, and it was absolutely perfect.. the appetizers and served food were beautiful and delicious, the atmosphere was great, and they even surprised us with a mini wedding cake. I was worried that a couple of the guests may not like the vegan food, but everyone raved about the food.

This is one of the best vegetarian and vegan restaurants in Philadelphia. In fact, I'd even rate it as good as any found in New York City. Their wine and beer selection is top-notch, and their food is amazing! Words do not do justice!

I hate that Horizons left Willow Grove, because it was closer to me then. But this is the best vegetarian place around and worth the trip into Center City.

I have been going to this restaurant since it was in Willow Grove. Since it has moved down to the city it has gotten even better. It is pricey but it is the best vegan meal that I have ever head.

This restaurant is an upscale casual standout among so many restaurants in Philadelphia. They have very creative signature dishes that will please anyone, especially meat eaters. The portions are good size and will fill you up. It is a little pricey for frequent visits, but definitely is worth the trip for special occasions. Very clean modern atmosphere, and is very popular. Be sure to call ahead for reservations on weekends.

Formerly rated one of the best vegetarian/vegan restaurants in the country! It's pricey for vegetarian food, but it will be the best vegetarian food you've ever had. Everything is vegan. The atmosphere is nice. I can't say anything bad about this place! Definitely worth the visit!

This is an excellent restaurant. It was nice to go into such a nice place and have a delicious, completely vegan meal. I recommend this to vegans and meat eaters. It's a great place. And do not forget the desert its the best part!

I heard great things about Horizons , but the experience left me underwhelmed and feeling more than a little ripped off.

First off, the specialty drinks were simply awful. El Passion is some combination of Tequila, mashed fruit pulp, and lime. It was DIABOLICAL. Tasted like bitter orange peel mixed with booze. To be avoided at all costs! My friend was not impressed with her Mojito like drink either (can't remember the name of it). To be fair, the Long Island Ice Teas we ordered afterwards were expertly made and delicious.

The First Course: Vietnamese Bruschetta. Absolutely delicious. A cracker like piece of bruschetta topped with perfectly seasoned tofu and topped with a dollop of spicy mint relish. Probably one of the best tofu dishes I have ever eaten. Do not miss this one.

The Second Course: DO NOT ORDER THE GRILLED SEITAN!!! Tastes exactly, and I mean absolutely exactly like Morningstar Farms Steak Strips. The mashed potato and spinach could not mask the flat, chewy and outright boring taste of this spongy entree. It also happens to be the most expensive thing on the menu at $21. I was very disappointed. You could make the same thing at home for less than $10.

Dessert: Blueberry Cheesecake was delicious, but at $9 a slice, you'll hate yourself after you devour the whole thing within 3 or 4 bites.

All in all, the food isn't bad, but way, way overpriced. Treat yourself if you are curious, but honestly, there are better places to eat veg in the city (Singapore, falafel at Cedar's)

Pros: One of a kind menu

Cons: Price

All the rave reviews are well deserved. Horizons menu is the most creative and delicious i've ever tasted. If i HAD to stretch to find fault with this restaurant, it would be with the servers- I can't tell if they are slightly pretentious or slightly uncomfortable. Either way this place loses no points, i love it.

My girlfriend and I love this place, so much that we bought their cook book that they sell and when we have time we try to recreate their dishes. We live out in West Chester and every time we come into the city this is the only place we want to eat. The menu has a great selection and the people their are so friendly. It is also nice to see the owners working their, they add so much to the atmosphere

The foods is great, I took one of my "steak and potato" friends there and he was amazed at the Portobello mushroom dish that they had.

I wish I could figure out how to prepare tofu the way they do.

I was visiting Philadelphia with my boyfriend and his sister/brother-in-law. There was a wait at the dining area so we grabbed a table at the bar upstairs. We had the place all to ourselves. I can't say much about the beer or wine, but the tapas were to-die-for. We tried the gazpacho, a wild mushroom dish, and something with roasted red pepper. It was fresh and filling. The flavors were well blended, complimentary, and not overpowering. My favorite - the Jamaican BBQ seitan. I would go there again in a heartbeat, and so would my very carnivorous boyfriend.

Cons: Out of a college student's price range and not in Atlanta!

I used to go to Horizons when it was in the 'burbs. I was worried that it would change when it reopened in Philly, and it did...for the better. Everything is great about this place. The ambience is just right, the presentation of the food, the food itself, the staff. Even my non-vegan friends love the food there. Make sure to get a reservation though.

Horizons offers more in the way of vegetarian fine dining with its delicately made dishes filled with innovative and unusual ingredients. It isn't cheap, but is worth the money for the ambience and service. You should definitely make a reservation as it is a limited space with much demand. Like I said, it offers more in the way of cuisine than regular every day eating. I definitely enjoyed Horizons, but find Blue Sage in Bucks County, PA to have a much more palatable range of tastes. This is a person preference. But for good vegetarian cuisine in Philadelphia - Horizons is the place.

I am not sure why Citysearch has not updated Horizon's new address of 611 S. 7th Street yet, so eager customers know where to look. At any rate, the food is exceptional! Take tofu. Yeah, tofu is tofu, it tastes like tofu. Not at Horizon's. The tastes range from spicy to a Caribbean theme. The tofu taste is just subdued into the dish. I've branched out from my usual seitan entree to treat my taste buds to these new experiences. Horizon's allows you let down your guard and take the road less traveled. The menu has quite the eclectic blend of exotic and simple ingredients. I am confident that even if I do not know exactly what Im reading with respect to ingredients, that it is going to be out of this world. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and pleasant. A fantastic ambience awaits you and your friends and family. Please don't pass this up. I had been going to the Willow Grove cafe for years. With this new location, it seems just right. Same great people, same great taste.

I've be a semi-regular at Horizons for years, at it get's better all the time! Rich makes the most amazing sauses and the seitan steak fills every craving i've ever had for meat in 6 years. The desert is to die for, great service, nice atmosphere and very well priced! I still have not gotton to see there new location on 7th street in philly, but it's worth the hour drive.

Forget the best of Philly, Horizons Cafe is the best vegetarian restaurant in the country! They take seitan and tofu to a higher level. With creations like Jamaican seitan wings, sopa de tortilla and grilled tofu scallops Horizons delivers! Even my meat eating friends, love Horizons. You've got to taste it to believe it. Oh, and don't leave without trying the vegan coconut-lime cheesecake. It's out of this world. Check out their website and go for a meal. You won't be disappointed. If you don't believe me, check out Craig Laban's, Savoring Philadelphia, Horizon's is highlighted as one of his favorite restaurants. Enjoy!

Horizon is one of the best vegetarian restaurants I have ever eaten at. The BQ Seitan wings are the best, they almost taste like chicken, but are even better in my opinion. The caeser salad is one of the best and it's non-dairy, I don't know how they do it. I would become a vegetarian if I could eat food like this everyday. Everything I have tried at Horizon has been great! I highly recommend trying Horizons whether you are a vegetarian or not. I think it is a good place for non-vegetarians to try because they would be able to see that meals do not always have to include meat to be good. Healthy food does not have to be boring or bland, especially not at Horizons.

Who knew you could find a dash of the tropics in the middle of Willow Grove? From the vibrant paintings on its walls, invigorating scents lingering out of the kitchen, Horizons is a truly exotic experience. The cafe 'feel' only adds to the illusion of being on the equator. The reasonable prices, fast service and flavorful food make Horizons stand out. Also what makes Horizons different, is the use of Tofu and Seitan as main protein in the meals, unlike many meatless restaurants. With over 15 entrees to choose from, and a menu that changes monthly, both meat eaters and vegetarians can enjoy a filling, savory meal.
