The V Spot
Posted by Anonymous on 10/01/2006
I was so happy when this place opened because i have been vegan my whole life but unfortunately, they do not know what they are doing. it could be really good but i eaten there 3x now (i live on the block) and each time was umm.. interesting. The chicken hero was clearly fm a freezer and on giant blob of white bread ( they shd use whole grain!) and the side salad was 5 wilted mesclun leaves. I tried the fries once but they were soggy and cold. and one time i got a smoothie but it was all full of ice chunks and tasted like yogurt. i keep hoping somthing will be good! today i will try the brunch. wish me luck. and yes, the desserts are from vegantreats for sure. that girl makes some good stuff!

I have been to the V-Spot twice for dinner. I am a pretty health conscious vegan, and I don't think V-Spot is particularly geared towards our breed. It is what I like to call "comfort food," vegan-style. But the atmosphere is great, and the staff was super friendly and accomodating (and cute!), both times, which makes me want to keep trying the V-Spot to see if they get better. What also makes me want to go back is that they now have brown rice as an option, the first time I went they didn't and that was almost enough for me to not want to come back (the very idea!). Also, they have several sides of vegetables, steamed or sauteed, as options, which is nice. I do have to say that my idea of "sauteed vegetables" is slightly different than theirs, while it was very tasty, I don't think corn is a vegetable, and it was too greasy for me. Finally, I think the quality of the ingrediants that they use could use a pick-me-up. I had the tempeh BLT the second time I visited, and the bread seemed like whole wheat Wonder Bread, and the tomatoes were meal-y.

My BF and I are both vegetarians, so were pleased to see V-Spot open up in our neighborhood. However, the meal we had was a disappointment. It was ... okay. That's the best I can say about the food. It was certainly nothing I'd ever order again, more like something you could easily concoct at home with a frozen (fake) chicken pattie, store-bought white rolls, some tomato sauce out of a jar, and some pre-shredded mozzerella cheese. Also, the portion sizes were poorly thought out. My sandwich was HUGE while his was tiny, yet they were about the same price. Our waiter was friendly, but not that great of a waitress. Service took forever ... after we sat, we waited a long time for even water, then menus, then to place our order ... then we waited for the food, then napkins, then silverware. We were seated on the patio (which could be really nice) and the lights were apparently set on motion detectors and timers, so I had to go wave my arms in front of it every few minutes to keep from sitting in the pitch black dark. The waiter knew this, but either wouldn't or couldn't do anything about it. All in all, it was a disappointment. And finally, in agreement with another reviewer, the name is not good!!

My boyfriend and I do the brunch here as often as humanly possible. He (a vegan) is mad for the tofu scramble and chicken-fried steak dishes. Me (a "pescetarian"), I'm a goner for the chocolate-chip pancakes and sausage. The food is absolutely delicious - can't say enough good things about the place - telling all my friends!

Vegan joints are usually boring and unispired. Not so at the V-Spot. The only thing I hate is the name. V-Spot sounds like a strip club.

I was hesitant at first because I normally like my food to have been killed before it’s on my plate but I was pleasantly surprised. The V Spot has something for everyone. It had a charming décor and the friendliest owner I’ve ever met. Everyone at my table was pleased and we all looked forward to the next time.

Just ordered some takeout from this place for the first time, and I can't say it was that good. I had the empanadas, which were the better part of the meal, and they were just ok. Kinda seemed like something you'd get out of the freezer section in the grocery store. I also had the penne vodka, which was the dissapointing part of the meal. The sauce was very watery, there wa to much of it, and the pasta seemed overcooked. I don't think I want to go there again. I'm all about what there trying to do, but I think they gotta pick it up a bit
