Great restaurant for vegetarians!!!!

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 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

When someone wants to treat me to dinner, this is where I choose. I only order one thing...the spanikopita! It is divine... I went tonight because it is Lent but I this is where I dine most of the time when I need a treat. Excellent service, friendly staff, and everyone LOVES all the other items on the menu. I... More

We found this great little eatery while traveling through Sarasota on our way to Key West. Lunch was delicious so we decided to try dinner on our way back. Absolutely fabulous!

A delightful restaurant. The range of vegetarian and vegan options was impressive, and having the seafood options available makes this a very appealing choice for couples or groups with mixed dietary preferences. In our case my wife is vegan but I eat everything. Neither of us had to make any sacrifices in dining choices to accommodate the other. The dishes... More

This restaurant turns vegetables into works of art on the plate. The presentation is beautiful. Who knew you could do such beautiful things with veggies. The coconut soup was so thick a spoon could stand up in the cup. Fish is served, but we all had mixed results. Two said it was too dry. Two others said the "signature" fish... More

We had dinner at Veg with two other couples before the theater. We weren't vegetarians but we all found ample choices of meat and fish, and I think chicken, entrees. Everyone was pleased with the food and four of us shared and enjoyed a bottle of good California Pinot Noir, which was only $26. There was only one negative note.... More

I love this place!!! The food is incredible and everything is so good. I will definitely be eating here again and bringing my husband with me the next time we are in Sarasota! I also love how there are plenty of vegan and dairy free options since I cannot have dairy. I didn't try any of the seafood items but... More
