Ecopolitan is a cozy, friendly, unconventional restaurant in the Twin Cities. While you may be skeptical of a raw-food menu at first, I encourage you to give it a try! Their dishes are unique and tasty, though they often bear less resemblance to the titles than you might expect (i.e. when you see "noodles" or "pizza," you really have to use your imagination). Some of the dishes are more filling than others, but when eating with a small group and sharing, I've never been disappointed.

Excellent, fresh food. This restaurant proves that raw, vegan cuisine is flavorful and delicious. This is my favorite restaurant in Minnepolis because of its organic environment and unbelievable fare. I am so thankful to have a place like this in my neighborhood.

This place is foul. Ask to take a tour. If you're not offended, well... maybe you deserve to eat at this trashhole. Otherwise, avoid... for your health.

Today I visited Ecopolitan Restaurant for dinner for the first time. I had checked out their website and expected a bigger place. However I found the diner room quite cozy and quaint . The decor was warm and had a friendly feel, but the music playing in the background didn't match the theme. It sounded like hip hop, then it later changed to country. The server was pleasant and polite and helpful explaining any questions that we had.. Now to the food, I ordered the bruschetta appetizer for myself and my wife. It was good, but to small and had room for improvement. The downside was the onions needed to be diced smaller and the serving size increased. Moving on to the entrees, we decided to go with the flaxseed tostadas. It was delicious, the flavors blended together quite well, with two exceptions. Big pieces of onion and the salsa lacked any life. It was very bland, adding a pinch of sea salt and a dash of cummin would had given it the life it needed. For dessert we had smoothies. They were good, however my smoothie arrived about ten minutes after my wife's smoothie.

Pros: Best Raw Food Around

Cons: Room for improvement (Chef taste your food before it leaves the window.)

I took my brother here for his birthday last April and he enjoyed his first experience eating an all vegan meal. We shared the nachos and they were excellent! He ordered a fruit smoothie and a pasta dish and I also ordered a pasta dish. They don't use actual pasta because all the food is raw, so they use vegetable noodles that they cut to look like spaghetti. I have been here several times and have not tried anything that I didn't like. There is something here for everyone. My brother continues to go back to this place and has taken his girlfriend here several times and her parents and they all love it!

I've been to the Ecopolitan several times and absolutely love it! It is located in an old style home that has been renovated to a restaurant on Lyndale Ave in Uptown Minneapolis. If you are looking for delicious vegan food, this place will satisfy even the most selective tastes. Meat-eaters will enjoy this restaurant as well. They serve everything from smoothies to salads to appetizers to entrees using all fresh fruits and vegetables and sprouted grains. I don't have anything bad to say about this place.

Dr T., a man of vision knew what he was doing when he opened Ecopolitan. I have enjoyed so much on their menu, the food isjust that wonderful. I have enjoyed just about every dessert they serve, the savory pie, the lasagne, they have a strawberry spinach salad that has a place in heaven. I can dine here guilt free and in sheer bliss, the taste sensations and organic vegetables and fruits make for one happy palate.
The staff have always been friendly also, which just adds to the experience. Words don't do it justice, one must go there and experience it first hand

This place ROCKS!!! I go there every time I'm in MN, which is quite often. My current favorite is the Savory Pie (it's an entree, not a dessert). Raw carrot cake is amazing, as are most of the desserts. When you eat here, the flavors burst in your mouth and you forget you are eating raw food. You also feel GOOD afterwards, not stuffed and lethargic. Another thing I love is how willing they are to share a smoothie recipe or tell you what type of kitchen gadget they used to do something. My only wish is that they continue coming up with more cool dishes to try.

Pros: Food, Products, books, Environment

Ecopolitan has a wonderful and diverse menu, and is a refuge in the Twin Cities for the health-conscious, vegetarians, and anyone seeking a change of pace in dining.

I am not a vegan, vegetarian, or raw foodie, but the food here is astonishingly fresh and the menu is much more varied than I could have imagined given that it's all vegan and raw. The delivery is purposefully slow, and other diners have an unnerving tendency to join in your conversations, but the things they do with vegetables here are truly beautiful. Sit outside if it's nice; the inside tends to get very warm in summer.

In Short
The quiet, mellow atmosphere suits the simple, super-healthy food in this apartment building-turned-restaurant. Folk music plays as young hipsters and the health conscious dine on raw, vegan dishes (the theory is that…
