Veg is truly a hidden gem for visitors - but locals patronize it every day of the week. Really interesting vegetarian and seafood cuisine - and of course gluten free if requested. Veg is in a nondescript strip center and has no real ambiance and is unpleasantly loud when full - but it still worth the effort to visit.

Absolutely fabulous menu, seafood, vegetarian and gluten free. Restaurant is small so booking is advisable and it was extremely busy. They do breakfast, lunch and dinner. We visited for lunch with friends, we all had delicious sandwiches from a large selection and all made freshly and toasted. Mine was predominantly avocado and veggies in a tangy dressing, my husband had... More

We tried their fish that was on special, and it was quite good, something from South Africa I think. Nice atmosphere, friendly knowledgeable staff. We'll be back when tourist season is over ;)

Every person's meal came except ours won't be back and won't recommend really disappointing if your vegan or vegetarian this is the worst place to go

We visited the restaurant last week, the food was tasty, I liked my portabello volcano, my friends looked happy with their food also. The restaurant is not very big and it was kind of noisy inside. Our server lacked energy and just seemed like she absolutely hated her job. The menu is good, a lot of choices, we will give... More

Such a great restaurant! So many options and were really attentive to food allergies. Only reason not giving 5 stars is because they need more than 1 waitress!

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
