Excellent meatless dishes

Went there to get necessary amount of vegetables and pasta with fish to meet training goals for racing in a single scull. Food was tasty and portions were substantial.

I personally am not vegetarian or vegan, and have no issues with gluten/lactose/etc. but my husband is a vegetarian, so we decided to try this out. Our server was Mindy, who was very nice and very quick. We ordered the sangria (a red and a white) for drinks and it was GREAT. I could have had ten more if we... More

Still dabbing my eyes with Kleenex after such a happy dining experience at Veg today! I went there on a whim and was nearly overwhelmed at discovering this beautiful cafe, friendly servers and the bountiful vegan choices, from soup to dessert. They also offer a gluten free menu. Lunch began with hot and delicious homemade Tuscan bean and kale soup,... More

My husband and I ate here for the first time on this trip, and we absolutely loved it. We're serious health foodies, but not vegetarian, but there were plenty of fish choices. Even many of the vegetarian entrees were pretty tempting. We both had specials for dinner. My husband had the shrimp and grits with kale collards and it was... More

The owners of Veg bill their little bistro as a Vegetarian and Fish Restaurant. Since I eat very little meat just had to try their menu, but waited till the tourist season is winding down. Selections are varied and their Salmon was grilled to perfection. . My enjoyed the Portobello Volcano smothered with all kids of fresh veggies. I also... More

My poor wife is vegetarian and gluten free, our typical dining out routine consists of her eating a salad and praying they don't put croutons on the salad!! This was not the case at the Veg, they had a whole menu full of options that fit her dietary restrictions. We were very happy to find this little gem on our... More

Visited VEG at end of March, party of 3. I had the Australian barramundi coated with dijon mustard and encrusted with pistachios . . . loved it. My friends had the sweet potato volcano and the kobia rice bowl. They were very pleased. Very conscientious service, quality presentation, perfect portions. I would definitely return. It was a Saturday night and... More

Nice little place just off 41 in south Sarasota. Food is nicely prepared with an emphasis on vegetables. We had veges with shrimp and the other person had salmon.

Our cousins took us to this restaurant during a recent trip to Sarasota. Given that I'm vegetarian and gluten-free, it's not always easy to find a restaurant that works for me. This one definitely worked for me. The entrees were creative and full of fresh vegetables. The place was extremely crowded, but that's to be expected. My only criticism is... More

This restaurant is tucked away in a strip mall and something you might consider passing over especially if you are not a local just by location alone. Thanks to trip advisor we pursued this place. We were greeted warmly. Having sat down the menu is divided into main, vegan and gluten free and has many options. The restaurant is family... More
