The V Spot
Posted by Local Dude on 03/09/2008
It's too bad I can't be kinder to the only strictly vegan restaurant in the neighborhood. I've been here three times, and the food itself has been somewhat "hit-or-miss" as others have described it. For one brunch, for instance, I had the tofu scramble with "sausage" and potatoes. The sausage was an alright, tasted like a Morningstar Farms or Boca type of thing, and the tofu scramble was pretty decent, but the potatoes were underdone and inappropriately seasoned. Service is equally spotty, I've been literally the only person in the restaurant and still kept waiting for some reason. I'll probably come back at some point for variety but if there were other vegan restaurants around I probably wouldn't.

My girlfriend and I went for the first time and we found everything was graet and we will definitely go back again soon.

I’d been meaning to try The V Spot for quite some time before I finally went there for dinner. I have to admit that I had high expectations, because a few of my friends had been several times and recommended it. I don’t know if they were having an incredibly off night or what, but the food was not good. To start, my boyfriend had the lentil soup. It appeared to be nice and thick, but upon spooning it into his mouth he discovered that it was fully loaded with pepper. It wasn’t the taste of over seasoning it tasted like someone accidentally dropped an entire pepper shaker in the pot and didn’t bother to start over. We also had a side of rice and beans that had no flavor what so ever. For dinner I had the Spinach Burrito, which my friend recommended, it was overstuffed, soggy, and flavorless as well. It was supposed to be “Mexican style” but just tasted like Italian style garlic & oil spinach, thrown in with black beans that came straight from the can. The faux cheese was either not on it or did not taste like anything. My boyfriend had the Fiesta Burger, which was covered in vegan sour cream, causing the bun to disintegrate. The burger itself, looked and tasted like a piece of paper. The service was not bad, as a lot of the other reviews said, just the food. It takes a lot for me to completely write-off a restaurant, but I can honestly say that I will not give The V Spot a second chance. I don’t know what my friends were thinking!

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.
