“Diner food reinvented....leaves you craving for more”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

My friends and I were a bit skeptical when we walked in to a somewhat old, ramshackle restaurant. We ordered a full 4 course meal complete with a drink, appetizers, main course and dessert - and everything was just fantastic. The chicken wings were simply delicious and I kept craving for them during the week ! The quesadillas were also super tasty. The main course was pretty good too. I ordered a wok fried rice. It was best eaten hot though. The hot chocolate and dessert (Russian tea cake) were really great. The ambience was fun too :-) . The only downside is that it is a little expensive. I would say if you come here the appetizers and desserts are the best part of the meal so don't miss trying them !

“Vegan Comfort Food”
Reviewed 23 December 2013

We met some friends here for a quick dinner when driving through SLC. The non-vegan friends wondered why we wanted to eat here when SLC has so many "better" vegan places. I said that sometimes as vegetarians we just want normal food that everybody else gets to eat. Sure, there is a time and place for a bowl of sea vegetables with kale and quinoa. But not always. Anyway, the Vertigo Diner does vegan comfort food and does it well. Instead of kale and quinoa, we had fried chicken, fries, and even some beer and wine. Everything tasted great, the service was professional and friendly, and the decor what you'd expect for a diner. Recommended!

“Great Menu...Great Food...100% plant based”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

Some of the best Vegan variety I've seen on a menu....and you'd never know it. I had to point out to a friend with me, that it was ALL plant based. She couldn't believe it. In fact, my three friends I brought, were all carnivores. Each LOVED their selection and the waiter was awesome in explaining, when asked, what things were (like WHAT is the "chicken" made of?). And, you can order breakfast anytime....as well as the rest of the menu including burgers, burritos, Chicken Biscuit Pie, Reuben, Buffalo wings, chocolate chip ice cream sandwich and on and on and on the food selection goes. It's YUMMY. Cute place too in the downtown Salt Lake City area. GO HERE...you will love it. Went on Saturday night and not busy at all. Comfortable cozy diner atmosphere.

“Hip vegan joint”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Way earthier than Sage's, this is a very hip diner with very good vegan food. The initial treatment by the staff was a little disappointing, but it improved once we got going and the food was all quite good. All in all a good choice for the everyday vegan outing.

“Delicious vegetarian food!”
Reviewed 18 August 2013 via mobile

We visited on Sunday and enjoyed delicious comfort food including fried *chicken and Mac-n-cheese. Portions are large enough to share. Salad was very fresh and tomatoes tasted like homegrown tomatoes. We were very happy with our meals - kids too!
