The V Spot
Posted by Gail on 05/20/2014
I ordered the kale tostadas appetizer and the quinoa and kale curry main. The tostadas were a little spicy even though I did not get the salsa on them. So when I ordered the main I specifically asked for it to be not at all spicy. The curry was only slightly spicy but the quinoa was pure hot pepper. I'm talking tongue- burning, taste-numbing, face-sweating spicy. I told the waitress and she was unsympathetic. I love vegan, gluten-free food but this spot gets a permanent pass!

I'm vsiting for Southern Califonia and missing my staples of good veg Mexican food. My wonderful boyfriend found this place in Park Slope and off we went. Its a nice area, high end, high rent. The restaurant tries to reflect that but doesn't fully succeed. Clean enough, but once you unwrap your silverware to put your napkin in your lap, you are left to put your knife and fork on the bare wooden table, which I didn't appreciate. The menuwas rather appealing, and we orded an appetizer of vegan nachos which were very good. They are nothing compared to the vegan nachos in Real Food Daily back in Sana Monica, butbthey certainly were good and wevdevoured them. Our mains were a Philly Cheese wrap and spinach myshroom tacos. Portions are generous and wevenjoyed every bite of each meal. I had asked for iced tea, made with a regular tea bag but by the end of the meal it had no appeared, though it was on the check. When asked, the server said she had forgotten to bring it out because she put it in the refrigerator to chill a little. I ws given the tea at no charge in a carry-out cup. All in all it was a good experience. While the food is not fancy, its filling and tasty, vegan, and reasonably priced for the generous portions. Complimentary water bottles (probablynfiltered tap but who cares?) on the tables are constantly refilled, the food was delivered to our table in an acceptable amount of time, and the environment in pleasant enough. I will definitey go back.

It's a shame this place has such great and varied vegan food but such (consistently) laughably bad service! We will keep going back because it is one of the only vegan restaurants of its kind in our neighborhood (aside from the outstanding Snice) but have simply resigned ourselves to long waits for menus, weird delays in our orders (then missing and wrong parts of the orders), and always an epic flag-down for the check. The owners really have something special here, it's too bad they can't get this piece in place.

Why do I keep giving the V-Spot a chance!? The food is good, but every time I've ordered from the V-Spot 1 of 5 things have happened: it took almost 2hrs to arrive; the order was lost and never arrived; an item was missing; because they were out of something, they substituted my meal to something totally different without calling to ask me; or only part of a dish arrived (1/2 cup of curried kale when I know that in the restaurant it is served in a full bowl. I actually walked down to the restaurant and showed the waiter and he laughed and said, "yeah, no, there should be more." Tonight I ordered from them at 7:50 and at 10:05 it hadn't arrived. I called them and they said they would try to get it out to me but that they closed in 5 minutes. I told them that I thought I should be comped the meal, as you wouldn't make a customer who was in the restaurant pay after waiting more than 2hrs, but they told me they would only be willing to comp a $6 appetizer. I cancelled the order. Laughably poor PR, laughably poor service, laughably poor management. I keep giving them a chance, but this restaurant is poorly managed.

I have visited this restaurant so many times in hopes that it will get better and because I really want to like it and support the effort to have a vegan restaurant in an area where there aren't a ton of them (especially one that isn't Asian based). My issue with it mostly has to do with service but also food quality. Most every time I've been here some part of my order has been wrong or lost completely. I agree with another reviewer that there doesn't seem to be a manager or someone keeping things running smoothly. I also wish there was a little more variety in terms of actual vegetables and less fake meat. I enjoy my fair share of fake chicken, but I also feel like as a vegan restaurant actual vegetables should be the highlight. I think it's why blossom, Angelica kitchen, and the candle restaurants in manhattan do so well - high quality, delicious, real food.

I have been to V Spot on several occasions. I have to say, not only is the food excellent, but also the owners are good people. Every dish I've tried I've loved. Dessert wise, the Peanut Butter Mousse is amazing. Even if you aren't vegan this place is excellent.

I came in here earlier today for brunch. The place was packed, but I was sat immediately. I ordered the pancakes with strawberries. They arrived relatively quickly, and were everything I had hoped. The strawberries were hidden until I cut into the pancakes to find them cooked inside. Awwww. So good. I accompanied them with a bottomless mimosa and then perfected the experience with a slice of the peanut butter bomb. I'm definitely going to order an entire cake from there for my boyfriend's birthday cause, dayam. Overall, the experience was great. The staff was nice and the food arrived pretty quickly and was super delicious. I'm definitely going to eat here again.
