The V Spot
Posted by Park Slope Vegan on 01/28/2008
Unfortunately, it is places like this that give veganism a bad name. It actually pains me to think of non-vegetarians or brand-new vegans eating at The V Spot and mistakenly believing that all vegan food is as artificial-tasting, unexciting, improperly cooked and indifferently served as it is here. If only there were some other good vegan options in Park Slope.

Went here with a group of people. The food was awesome. The nachos are amazing as well as the spicy chicken and beans and rice. I have tried all vegan spots in manhattan (since i live in teh city)and V spot is by far worth the travel to brooklyn. The wine selections go great with the food. The spicy chicken wrap is really spicy but tastes amazing. I was impressed by the brownie dessert with ice cream - which was one of the best vegan ice creams i have ever tasted. The waiter/owner knows everything about vegan food and is very helpful in making [select]ions. I would recommend this restaurant for those who are not even vegans because you cant tell the difference. I cant wait until the summer when the outside deck is open.

Don't know why people complain so much about the place. I went in November with a bunch of people, nobody was a vegetarian either. I can see why people complain about the service, but no one in my party had any problem with the food. I think the bad reviews are just from people who went when it first opened (and wasn't as good) and decided to hate on it ever since. Also more likely to have people complain on reviews than people who were happy with their food come and post a review.

I don't know what everyone else is complaining about, but I think the food and service are fantastic. I've been there for brunch and dinner and have not had a problem. I hope they keep it up because there aren't that many truly vegan restaurants. I even took a non veggie person there and she enjoyed it. Anyway, keep up the good work.

I went to the V Spot today for the first time. I am a vegetarian, I've been living in Park Slope for about one year and was very excited when I found out there was a real vegan restaurant here. As much as I wanted to like it, I am afraid I was disappointed. I found no particular fault in the service or the decor, but the food was mediocre. I had "chicken" cutlets with mushroom gravy, collard green and mashed potatoes. The cutlets were hard as a brick, no better than the ones you buy in the supermarket and cook by yourself. If I hadn't known by the menu, I could have never told it was a mushroom gravy. It was like a gluey substance poured on top. The mashed potatoes were incredibly garlicky. My boyfriend had spicy chicken wings. The texture was unpleasant (very chewy) and they tasted much sweeter than spicy. Last, we ordered carrot juice, which I am pretty sure was coming right from a carton (I saw no juicer in the kitchen). And it is not a cheap restaurant: the entrees are $14 to $19 more or less.

I work next door, so I haven't eaten here several times. Not a good idea. Everytime I have hope that it will be better. Being vegan, I'm all about seeing vegan restaurants. But I have to say, I wish this place would just close already.

I wish I could stop eating at the V-Spot, but the food is too good, so I'll have to suffer the service. I have been going to the V-Spot since they opened their doors, and their service has been consistently horrendous. The servers are the least attentive I have ever experienced. On more than three different occasions my side orders have been forgotten about when eating in house (it has happened one out of the two times I've ordered take out). It takes the staff forever to finally come to the table to take the order, and when they get there, they aren't very friendly. My boyfriend and I go there enough that the staff knows us, but they hardly even acknowledge us. They also run out of food! Twice they have told me I couldn't get the mashed potatoes because there weren't any. But after all is said and done, their food is truly delicious. I would take this place over Red Bamboo, Zen Palate, or Gobo anyday. This place could be the whole package if they'd get their act together.
