The V Spot
Posted by enoughtoil on 08/26/2009
I went to the V Spot recently for the first time in months. The food was never that good, just okay, but they used to offer a $10.00 discount ticket for every $100.00 purchase, and since I had one of those tickets, I decided to give the place another try. But the situation just went from bad to worse. First, the woman behind the counter told me, matter-of-factly, that the restaurant no longer honors these tickets. I did not argue with her, but just ordered some food to go and, while waiting, ordered and ate a plate of french fries. Second, as I was eating, this raucuous music came on, played very loud. I went to the woman and declared that I was trying to eat. When she did not understand what I was getting at, I asked her to turn down the music. She replied that I should have asked her directly rather than in this roundabout way. Perhaps she was right, but her attitude still sucked, since the restaurant should have known better than to play such ear-devouring music in the first place, especially at such a high volume. Anyway, when I got home, I called the V Spot to try to articulate the problems I'd had at the restaurant and reached the same woman. She insisted that the restaurant had no obligation to honor the tickets they had issued, oblivious to the fact that such dishonoring was a breach of contract as well as a violation of basic ethical norms. She would not even concede that it would have been good etiquette and good customer relations to at least have offered to let me have the french fries for free. She also insisted that I had improperly voiced my request to turn the music down. When I insisted in return that she should have known better than to play the "music" at that volume in the first place, she hung up on me. In my opinion, this is not a customer-friendly place, nor is it one you should go to if you are seeking delicious food. On the other hand, if you like to be abused and enjoy mediocre food, this place is perfect!

ive been to the vspot many times and although they still need work (like ALL restuarants), they have great vegan food with awesome Latin options which is nice for a change. Try their Nachos or "Chkn" burrito. If you dont like soy meat then you should def go for the Kale Tostadas, they are yummy in my tummy. I understand that vegan food can be more expensive and i can only imagine the rent they pay so i cannot complain. It sounds like some of these reviews are from spoiled yuppies who cant appreciate :(

Delivery took about an hour and a half tonight. When I called to check on the delivery, the guy who answered the phone was pretty rude and unapologetic. When the food arrived, it was mediocre at best. Summer rolls were OK, rice and beans were probably the best part of the meal. Tostones are made with sweet plantains instead of starchy - wrong. We won't be ordering from here again.

I want to love V Spot, really I do. But the prices just don't justify the quantity and quality of the food. I like the homemade sausages you get with brunch - but 2 of them the size of a quarter for $2 - surely they're joking?!? The rest of the food I've had has been strictly mediocre. And what is up with the one slice of barely toasted store bought bread with brunch? I know rents are high, but I just don't get it. And the service is generally inattentive at best to boot. I really have no reason to go ever go back.

i was expecting a normal spinach burrito the other night. what i got was AMAZING! get it! i shared with my friend and he agreed, and he's kind of picky the only other thing i've had there is brunch about a year ago and it was really good too. if it wasn't so far from me i'd eat there all the time.

Stopped in on a random weekday night and was pleasantly surprised by their tapas menu. My choice was the delicious empanada and tasty micro brew for $6. Ever since I try to go whenever I'm in the mood to skip meat/cheese. I'm not a vegan but this place definitley makes it a lot easier to eat less meat.

The owner has always gone way out of his way to show his customers how much he cares. He takes his time talking to you about the delicous ingredients, and keeps the mailing list up to date on bands that are playing there, as well as events, though he hasn't been around much lately. The food is excellent. The back area is welcoming. And where else can you get vegan wine in this neighborhood?!
