Respond to Review of CLOSED: VegiTerranean
by Dr. Z.

Review: There is no way to not respect an all vegan place, and the food is completely outstanding in every way. It's expensive, but really excellent. I am scared of things that look like meat, but the fake chicken was still good. The salads, the desserts, the apps, the entrees, the pasta - there is no weakness. It is worth putting up with the attitude. We went on a Saturday night, no line at the door, 5 empty tables, and were told we had to have reservation to get one - with a tone full of attitude like we didn't deserve to be there. We sat at the bar, which was filled with folks eating dinner. One guy even asked to see the reservation book, wondering why we were all eating at the bar. The bartenders were awesome and the meal was perfect - great service. But oddly, we were there 1.5 hours, and those tables never filled, and when we left there were 6 empty tables. I think vegetarians are less into attitude than the steak crowd, but I suppose time will tell. If they made it more comfy and had friendly people at the door it would be awesome.

I have worked at VegiTerranean since it opened - as far as the empty tables go, I am assuming the reason why they were empty and the host was seating people for dinner at the bar was probably because the empty tables were reserved. We don't have "reserved" signs for individual tables, and usually we allow people to sit at reserved tables provided that there is adequate time to clean and reset them before the parties who reserved them show up. Occasionally some parties are no shows, so while it may seem that the host was simply being pretentious and refusing to seat anyone at an empty table, it may very well have remained empty due to a no show or cancelled reservation.
