Respond to Review of CLOSED: VegiTerranean
Review: My husband took me to VegiTerranean last Saturday for my birthday. I was impressed with the minimalist decor, I particularly liked the neon lighting on the edge of the bar that periodically changed color. The wait staff was all attired in black, which went nicely with the restaurant's moderne look. We started with a glass of wine for him and a Vodka martini for me. Both were very good. We shared an appetizer of risotto stuffed hot banana peppers. Our waiter warned us that the peppers were a hot 11 on a scale of 1-10 and he was right. Hubbie loved them. I found the pepper a little too hot for me, but the risotto was wonderful. For out main course I had the steak marsala which was was excellent. The marsala sauce was full of plump mushrooms and had a wonderful texture and flavor. It was served with olive oil mashed potatoes and braised greens. Both were wonderful. Hubbie had a the filet mignon which was served with white bean mashed potatoes and braised greens. It came to our table topped with a lighted rosemary sprig, which was a nice touch. From the speed at which he ate it , I can only assume it it was out of this world. We finished by sharing a piece of cheesecake that came with raspberry sauce, whipped cream and fresh fruit. It too, did not disappoint. Neither of us are strict vegetarian and this meal was one of the best dining out experiences we have had recently. The only problem we had all evening was that the restaurant does not automatically offer glasses of water at every table,and we had to ask for some. Other than that, our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable. Since we live in the Akron area we hope to return.
