I love rise above! It is delicious, vegan and reasonably priced. Everything on the menu is delicious and the atmosphere is so cozy and lovely. The staff are so nice and friendly as well. I love visiting every time I'm in town.

I went here with my wife as she's a celiac and thought it would work for both of us. Turns out that neither of us enjoyed our meal. Service was decent but food was doodoo. Had the seitan nuggets and they were inedible.
