No fancy but delicious

This restaurant is one of our favorites. Maine scallops, and other fish are great! Try the sweet potatoes. Mindy and servers are most helpful. Let them know if you are allergic or have food issues. Reservations are needed and honored.

We found four good restaurants in the Sarasota + St Pete area last week. This one was our fave. Great choices including fresh seafood. We stuck to V+V. I had the Portobello Volcano and Flavors were great, serving generous. My wife had the Kung Pou cauliflower and veggie stir fry...amazing. Service was professional and friendly. Nice selection of wines that... More

The decor and ambiance is just a click better than a pizza and sub take-away. The food - well, if you have a vegetarian or vegan preference in your party, it's good to know a place like this is out there, but that's about the most charitable thing I can say. The service was the most disheartening thing however. These... More

My wife and I had dinner here during a visit to Siesta Key. The quality of the food was very good. We shared a lettuce wrap to start, then went on to sharing one of their feature dishes, a Portobello Sweet Potato Volcano, which included portobellos, sweet potatos, quinoa, brown rice, lentils, and a mix of vegetables. We finished off... More

Shabu shabu: tofu stir fry with rice noodles & veggies al dente, sauce was sesame citrus and amazingly tasty. Vegetarian comfort food!!! Cheese ravioli with butternut squash sauce well seasoned. The green beans were still stighlty crisp, the way they should be!! We... More

I've lunched at Veg several times and have never been disappointed. The small shop has a airy open feel and both service and food are great.

You are going to love this restaurant. It's a small spot tucked away. The food is always fresh and tasty. The waitstaff explains how each dish is made. All you have to do is ask. Been there a few time and will go back over and over again.

Our first time at "veg" and it was excellent. The corvina (peruvian fish - drum family) was perfectly cooked as was the broccoli. 1/2 sweet potato was a little over steamed but still good. A few craft beers rounded off the experience perfectly. We had a mocha porter from highland brewing that was top notch. Service is slow but i... More

the food is consistently great. Service is good. Atmosphere is ok- not very special. the noise can be overwhelming. I have done takeout of their superb soups just to escape the noise.
