We took advantage of a Groupon coupon to revisit the Veg in Sarasota and we were not disappointed! The place was packed at 1:00 pm but there were two small tables open so we took the one near the kitchen. The staff were friendly and the specials included a wasa ruben sandwich that sounded great. I also ordered a Jeffe... More

Don't be afraid of the location in a strip mall or the small size, Veg creates food your will remember. The chef truly cares about what goes on the plate. We are vegetarian but we ate there with non-veg friends. Everyone came away exclaiming how wonderful the food was and planning for our next visit.

Located in an ancient strip mall, this small restaurant offers a decent selection for vegetarians and vegans. The fish tacos, featuring Vietnamese basa, was very bland but the veggie burger was great. The homemade soup (back eyed pea) was delicious, as was the Caesar salad.

While I'm not strictly a vegetarian, I thought {see what assuming does, huh?!} the restaurant would offer vegetarian and vegan dishes. Not so. Many of the dishes including the specials were fish. I found that to be a bit odd. The menu is quite extensive and I'm unclear as to how a restaurant claiming to use organic and local foods... More

We had a big group, and the owner and staff were very accommodating. Everyone thought the food was great. If I lived in Sarasota I would go there all the time.

As a 40+ year vegetarian I take my food pretty seriously when I dine out and expect something way better than I can make at home. That did not happen at Veg. There were four of us in our party for lunch, 2 vegetarians, 2 meat eaters. Everyone ordered a vegetarian dish and none of us were very impressed. Nothing... More

Our first time at Veg. Didn't know what to expect. Was wowed!! This was a special and our waitress recommended it. It came with a delicious salad. Sorry Baltimore - this was the best crab cake we've ever eaten. We are looking forward to trying other dishes at Veg!!! Great restaurant.
