“Would go back! Nice mix of Vegan and Non-Vegan Fare”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Being vegan, I had the "Belly Buster" burrito which was (obviously) plentiful and tasty too. Other diners had shrimp salad and quesadillas that they enjoyed. Service was fine and knowledgeable.

“Skip it”
Reviewed June 15, 2014 via mobile

This is a nice bar with occasional good live music. I suppose it's a decent place to visit for a night out with entertainment and beer. The food is extremely mediocre with some uninspired vegan offerings. The pasta was fairly plain, the nachos were nothing more than a bag of chips poured into a bowl with tasteless salsa and tasteless guacamole (little more than diced tomatoes and mashed avocado. A little flavour would have been nice). The salad was fine and the chili was edible. I'd skip it.

“Great food, sweet place!”
Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

You don't have to be Vegan or Vegetarian to enjoy this restaurant. It has a wide variety of quality foods and beverages and several unique entrees, I personally recommend The Jason!

“Fabulous Art....Food Presentation Should Match”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

We visited for the first time to view an exhibit by local artist, Linda Cohen. The setting, atmosphere, and art work were all superb. I ordered lentil soup, nice and hot, and a Greek salad. My friend's Pollo Loco sandwich was tasty but arrived with two "baby carrots" that had turned white, as a garnish. It was a disappointing touch for a restaurant that purports to serve fresh ingredients. Is there not time to actually peel and cut real carrot sticks? The menu does have a good selection for vegetarians. We felt forgotten by our waitress who was busy in the diner area talking to another employee which kept us waiting at least 10-15 minutes for our check. A little more attention to the details would go a long way here. The kitchen could use some coaching on presentation and the wait staff might be more observant of when people are ready to go. We love the idea of this type of place and would like to see it succeed. We will return and hope Sparky Town has been tweaked slightly.
