Bandeja Paisa is my favorite dish there. The food is latin organic vegan with Colombian inspired dishes. There is a wide range of choices from finger food to complete meals with everything in between. It is my go to vegan restaurant where one has a wide range of choices and thus is a place I regularly visit.

Flavor was lacking in all of the dishes we tried. Had to drown everything in hot sauce.

The food here is incredible! I usually get the avocado fries and an appetizer. Then I get the quesadilla supreme. I have never had a problem with the food or the staff!

We made a reservation online. They said they didn't have any reservations and that they were closed for another hour despite the fact that they were supposed to have opened 7 hours prior according to their listed hours online.

As a life time vegetarian I am always looking for a good vegetarian restaurant that I can bring my friends and they can have a fun experience eating out. VSPOT is my go to place. Great food, awesome vibe. I have only been to this location twice but the spot in Brooklyn is amazing!! Looking forward to coming again

We're vegan and love this place for the quality of the food, preparation and presentation. This would never deter me, but the service was weak and at a time when it wasnt that busy.

The food was excellent. Fresh, tasty and not overly salted. Good but slow service. One major problem was the filthy women's bathroom. To their credit, I told them about it and they did send some workers down there to clean it up.

The empanadas were my favorite thing here. Having mostly cut out cheese from my life, the Philly empanada really hit the spot.

The guacamole was okay, but it's a lot to eat and doesn't come with chips of any kind...so you're sort of just eating a bowl of guac.

We loved our meal. We had the lentil soup, Belgium fries, enchilada sampler, kale/quinoa plate and pitcher red sangria. Price point was great, more than enough food (we were hungry). Only negative was waiter was slow and not particularly friendly or attentive. Would go back in a heartbeat.

The food was good but the service was sub-par- when we arrived at the restaurant and told the hostess we had made a reservation (that we had made 3-4 hours prior to arriving) she told us it was not in their system and began to argue with us about it and made us prove the time we made the reservation by showing her the email from OpenTable on a phone and the time at which it was received. In my opinion, that's not how a hostess should react with customers- even if she couldn't find the reservation because of whatever technical difficulty, which would have been understandable, she could at least have been gracious about it and tried to accommodate us- we also would have no reason to lie about making a reservation. I would still recommend the restaurant as the food was good, but we were all pretty disappointed by how that was dealt with by their staff, especially because it was our first visit.

This place was great. My girlfriend is vegan and I’m not so I decided to take her here, and let me tell you, it was a great experience. Everything is obviously vegan but you wouldn’t know it if someone just placed the dish in front of you and told you to eat. Great food, great service, great sangria. Definitely a go back to place, and this is coming from someone who loves a slab of steak.

We went for Valentine’s Day dinner. Even though I made my reservation several weeks in advance, when I got there I was told that my reservation was not in the system and we had to wait for 20 minutes for a table to become available. The food was great but I was disappointed to have to sit at the bar for 20 minutes when I had made a reservation several weeks in advance. The waitress even showed me the restaurant’s version of Opentable, which didn’t show my reservation, even though the Opentable app on my phone showed my reservation for 2 at 730 at this restaurant.

One of my go-to spots. I come here pretty regularly. They have an extensive menu and I hear from other people that various things are great, but I always end up getting the 3 for $10 empanada deal because I just LOVE their empanadas and that is such a great deal for quality food in this neighborhood! If I'm super-hungry or someone is willing to share them with me, then I also get some avocado fries. I just wish they had a bit wider variety in their drink selection, with more traditional liquors; their mainstays are sangria, one or two soju cocktails, and one or two sake cocktails-- and the sake-based mojito I had, while tasty, was not very strong. So I usually just get wine here.

We loved the food, but despite the restaurant being very empty (one table of 8 plus two other tables of 2) we had to take it to go after ordering with an hour to spare before heading to a show at the Public Theater. We were disappointed that the food took so long and we weren't able to eat it at the restaurant and had to wait until after the 2.5 hour play...
