Reminds me of that song from West Side Story "There's a Place For Us!". So hard finding great vegetarian, vegan options. One of my favorite places to go. Even my carnivorous hubby enjoys the food here. Great date place. Only downside is they do NOT take reservations - they take call ahead, but people who didn't call ahead still got... More

Visited Detroit for the weekend - and ate here 2 times. Both meals were incredible - for my husband and I both. We even ordered the 3 meal for the car ride home. It's typically really hard to find vegetarian and gluten free that is healthy and tasty - Seva delivered on all levels. Our server, Da was especially awesome.... More

We went for happy hour before visiting the DIA on a Friday night. Our friend recommended trying it and she was absolutely correct! This place is great! We ordered a variety of appetizers to share. Each one was absolutely delicious! The flavors were very, very good. The presentation was perfect. They were definitely large enough to share! The wine selection... More

As a vegetarian in Detroit, I opted for the Coney Island hot dog dish at Seva. It gave me a taste of local food and still staying vegetarian. It was quite good, but not quite my taste. I would have preferred a whole grain chewier bun over the soft white hot dog bun. But then, I guess, I would be... More

I've been eating at both Seva locations for decades and normally have had good dining experiences. Maybe thats why I had the disappointing recent experience of having my server tell me that not only were THEY themselves not vegan or vegetarian but that HALF of the wait staff at this place are meat eaters. The server then went on to... More

It was so nice to go to Seva on a Friday night rightt before going to the D.I.A.The service was slow but the food was worth waiting for. I also enjoy the outdoor seating when it is a nice day.The last time we were at Sea we had much better service. I guess we just picked the wrong waitress. Again,... More

Parking is in a kind of patio the entrance is narrow, just watch out and you'll find it. As it is a little away from the street with some green around sitting outside is great with good whether. Inside due to modern style in old brick building also very nice. The big windows give a lot of light which makes... More

Seva is fantastic. Make sure to check out the location prior to arrival so you don't miss the entrance. It's a little hard to catch but once you get there you will be amazed. The staff is amazingly friendly and attentive. The food choices and accommodations are wonderful. I ordered the TLT and put their BBQ sauce right on the... More

Marvelous spot to celebrate my 21st birthday dinner last year! Tempeh Bánh mí, cinnamon girl hard cider, and desserts for sharing: tiramisu and chocolate hazelnut cake. Rang in my 22nd by visiting this place again...can't get enough. And neither can my carnivorous father!!!!

They have some very healthy choices but some decadent fun stuff too, like the General Tsao's Cauliflower and Yam Fries- Yum! We enjoy the TLT: grilled tempeh wrap which is delicious too.
