Respond to Review of Vegie Bar
by Veronica01

Review: My husband and I went here on a recommendation. We checked out the menu on another website and decided to try it. It was a Tuesday night, the music was very loud and it was fairly busy. It continued to become packed and even noisier as they cranked up the music and there was a huge line out the door. We ordered 2 soups, rice balls, the cajun stew special and the risotto. It was very good, very hot and came pretty timely. The service was not so great, you didn't know who your waiter was and they all ran around and never asked if you needed anything else. We did not finish all of our meal and when we asked to get it to go, the waitress flat out said no and it was part of their food safety policy. WTF is that? I have never in my life heard of that, and especially ordering vegan food with no animal products to go bad, this does not make sense, it was some rice and vegetables for God's sakes. I can't believe they think it's better to just take your money and throw out the food than let you enjoy it later that evening or the next day. Totally unacceptable. I looked it up too and it's not illegal to allow to go or doggy bags, next time I will bring my own tupperware and tell them off if they try to take my food away. We said no to dessert and then were left alone for another 15 minutes after our food was done. No offer to bring the bill, no coming back to ask if there was anything else. I don't get why they ignore you when you're done and the table is empty and they have a lineup out the door. Do they not want more customers to be seated? We had a really good time until the rude waitress threw out our food, left us at the table with no bill and the music was cranked even higher. It really put a sour taste in our mouths and we were looking forward to coming back, but now we're just pissed off with the place.

The majority of restaurants in Melbourne no longer allow doggy bags.
