The V Spot
Posted by inkedAG on 08/17/2006
I went here with my boyfriend as he's a vegetarian. The menu has interesting offerings. I prefer real food, but I can go veggie if I have to. The chicken cutlet sandwich is really good. After trying fake mac n cheese at another place, I was a bit scared of the fake mayo, but that was fine. The only problem was the service. It's a decent sized place. You'd think they'd have more than one waiter on a Sunday. It took over a 1/2 hour from when we ordered till when we were served. All we ordered was the sandwich and fries for me, a Breakfast burrito and fries for him. Even a group of three sitting next to us was wondering how long it would take for them to get their food. If you don't mind waiting, the food is good, so give it a try. And this is coming from a meat eater!

I have been to the V-Spot many times and enjoyed everything I have tried, including the pasta dishes, heroes, burgers and the quinoa with vegetables special that they offer fairly often. As a vegan Italian food lover, I appreciate finally being able to get good vegan versions of chicken parmesan and penne with vodka sauce. The Vegan Treats desserts, especially the peanut butter bomb cake/brownies, boardwalk fudge cake and strawberry shortcake, are decadent and delicious. Also, the owner is incredibly nice and welcomes suggestions about what should be on the menu. I am very glad that the V-Spot came to Park Slope, and I will continue to support it and recommend it to others.

I began my 24th birthday celebration at the V spot and I couldn't have had a better time. About 25 of us held down the entire back garden/deck for about 3 hours and it was total bliss. Dinner was delicious, although we mainly ordered appetizers and the virgin frozen drinks were incredibly refreshing. I definitely recommend this place for dinner and also as a great place to host a dinner party.

I just went here today and the fare was almost exactly what could be found at Foodswings in Williamsburg. The same exact chicken parm sandwich that seems as if it were taken out of the freezer and microwaved for you (not at all home-made food). That being said, the food is pretty good but it's not healthy or outstanding in any way. For the price, I'd rather go elsewhere.

I've actually only done takeout for v spot, so i can't say about the atmosphere. but as far as the food, i've had a few noodle dishes (good) the chicken chop sandwiche (very good) and the desserts (great!!!). the fries are really good too. i haven't had something there yet that blew me away, besides the desserts, but hoping i will. the people who had bad experiences need to try again, i say. v spot's added to my favorites list for park slope.

I have to say I had an amazing meal yesterday at the V spot. Despite the mixed review I decided to stop by and be my own judge. My meal started with the portabello mushroom and "beef" empanadas appetizers (I shared with my friend) and then the "steak" with rice and beans for my entree. Everything was UNBELIVABLE , it was so GOOD! the beans were probably the best beans I've ever had. My friend had the vegetable burrito wich was stuff with a breaded chicken cutlet, rice, beans and salad served and she loved it too. It was too hot to sit outside but the vspot has a really nice wooden deck garden in the back. The staff was very helpful, down to earth and relaxed, but NOT unattentive, which I like, I don't care for all the fake talk or pretenses. We got our waters soon after we sat down and we never had an empty glass. It was an overall great experience. I highly recommend it!

Food was bland and uninspired. The saving grace, as other reviewers have pointed out, are the desserts - they're from vegantreats.com and you can get them at a number of other restaurants in NYC and Philly . I'm glad to have vegantreats.com desserts in Park Slope, but I would not go to V Spot for their food. They may turn around lso I'll try them again in six months.
