Excellent dinner

Stopped in for dinner lastnight, and was impressed! I am not vegetarian nor vegan, but enjoying the healthier options. Everything is very fresh with top knotch flavor. Our waitress, Kelly, was upbeat and happy! We will all definitely be back!

I have never been treated as terrible as I was at this restaurant. Very disrespectful and rude. My food was too spicy to eat and I returned it. They charged me anyway, it didn't taste good at all. I still had to pay for it and the waitress was extremely rude about it. Will never be back. Worst dining experience... More

We went to eat the place last week after searching vegetarian and organic eating options in Sarasota. The place is last century's ambient, located close to Siesta Key. It offers seafood and vegetarian food. I was surprised of the pairing, that vegetarian and fish... but anyway. The food was ok, but nothing special.

Have visited a few times in the last few months - for lunch only and know that the menu does change. The service is great! The place is small and quaint. I am not a vegetarian and maybe that is my slight hesitation? The shrimp tacos were great and would recommend them, however, I did feel the menu was slightly... More

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
