Respond to Review of The Veggie Grill - El Segundo
by animal friend
Review: I love the food at the Veggie Grill. Every single thing on the menu is delicious! My favorites are the All Hail Kale Salad, the Bayou Chicken Sandwich (wonderfully spicy), and the Chili. The cookies and the carrot cake are the two best vegan desserts I have ever tasted! Even better, the portions were huge. This brings me to my only complaint about this restaurant. What happened to the portion size? In the last couple of months they have shrunk to about half their former size, or even smaller! I usually don't mind paying $9.00 for a salad, but my last to-go order of Kale salad did not even cover the entire bottom of the box!. The container of dressing stood in the corner, and the salad ingredients barely touched it. A side order of sweet potato fries on my last visit contained on 9 fries! At over $2.00 to upgrade to the Sweetheart fries, those had better be some darn good fries! So owners, please do us all a favor and make your portions a little larger. Many of my friends will not even come with me to eat at your restaurant, anymore. They love your food, but feel that the new portion sizes just don't make it worth the money. Also, the staff seems really stressed recently. They used to be so welcoming and friendly, now they all seem scared. It could be due to the guests yelling at them about the amount of food they are getting for the price they are paying. On my last visit, the young lady working the tables had to deal with three separate parties berating her over portion size. She handled it with incredible grace, but I felt for her.
