First Review by Nancy Cadet

Great Food with Excellent Variety - Edit

Resto Vego has a large buffet (probably 100 items, including salads, mains, side dishes and desserts) with a lot of foods from around the world, including some very unique dishes. It's probably 75% vegan, with everything well-marked. Lunch was definitely a delight here. The only negative is that it's a bit expensive (make sure you don't load up too much on the items that would otherwise be cheap!).

Pros: Great Food, Great Variety, Lots of Nutritious Dishes

Cons: Not 100% Vegan, A Bit Expensive

Lots of yummy vegan options - Edit

I lived in Montreal for over 13 years and used to go here often(it used to be Le Commensal). I like the new concept of being able to order a la carte, along with the buffet. Everything is really flavourful and the buffet is great if you're someone like me who can never decide what they want. I still always end up over-piling my plate and leave so stuffed hehe.

Pros: Lots of vegan choices, good value, pay by weight

So many vegan choices - Edit

This is a huge buffet with more than half of the dishes vegan.! Every dish was delicious, and I ate too much! Next time I will be more selective and choose just the best dishes, -if that is even possible. Great place for a hearty meal.

Pros: Extensive array of delicious vegan dishes., Plenty comfortable seating, serves wine too

Cons: Only one toilet for so many overfed guests., not fully vegan

Huge variety! - Edit

I loved getting to try so many different dishes! Everything was SO good and I hope to get another chance to eat here during my visit. All dishes were clearly marked as gluten-free and I was excited to have even dessert options!

Huge Buffet! - Edit

I go there during the week sometimes with omnivore work collegues. The buffet looks so great that everyone is happy. Each plate is well labeled too. Its also possible to buy their products if you plan a gathering: Frozen pies, cakes...

Vegan pulled pork - amazing! - Edit

I randomly walked into this place and opted for the vegan pulled pork, and it was the best I've EVER had.

Pros: Delicious

Wonderful! - Edit

Food was all vegetarian and well labeled if vegan or gluten free. Only tried the cafe option so far, as there's a buffet upstairs. Tried the BBQ Pulled Tempeh sandwich and it was great.
Salads, sandwiches, Buddha bowls, grain bowls, noodle bowls, pizzas, espresso, smoothies, and juices.
Friendly, breezy atmosphere

veg* buffet - Edit

Even though the buffet is officially only vegetarian, at least half of the options were vegan. As the friendly lady of the staff explained to me (in English), you pay 2,70$ per 100g, but not more that 17,50$ per plate (as long as it's not more than 1kg of food on it), plus tax as usual.
I put many different options and seriously every single one of them was delicious!
There also is a separate dessert and fruit buffet, which has a different price, but since I skipped that, I can't review it...but it looked good ;)

Pros: plenty of vegan choices, buffet, pay per 100g, friendly staff, nice atmosphere, enough space

Cons: none!

Cons: none

Manger santé "vite fait, bien fait" - Edit

Si vous voulez manger "vite fait, bien fait" mais en gardant votre santé à cœur, Resto Végo est un bon choix! D'ailleurs, si vous êtes nouvellement végétarien et/ou végétalien ou voulez initier un(e) ami(e), je recommande également de faire un tour au restaurant: il y a beaucoup d'options différentes qui permettent d'apprécier l'étendue d'un plant-based diet (burger, chili, tourtière, ragoût, une dizaine de salades, frites de navet, plusieurs soupes, etc.). Les recettes sont assez variées et plusieurs des ingrédients sont biologiques. Il y a également une grande sélection de desserts (y compris des gâteaux crus signés Rawesome!). Par contre, gérez vos attentes: il s'agit bel et bien d'un buffet. Il faut aimer ce type d'expérience! Vous vous servez vous-mêmes, le prix est calculé en fonction du poids de votre assiette et des ajouts (soupe et dessert), etc. Aussi, même si l'établissement est assez grand (même dans les heures de pointe, je ne pense pas que vous manquerez de place!), j'aurais aimé qu'il soit davantage chaleureux. Sans non plus ressembler à une cafétéria, le décor et l'ambiance vous rappellent que Resto Végo reste, malgré son orientation santé, un restaurant fast-food. Autres bémols: le personnel n'est pas particulièrement souriant et, si jamais votre assiette est éligible à la promotion du prix maximum, les autres rabais auxquels vous pourriez avoir droit (membership de l'Association Végétarienne de Montréal, carte d'étudiant) ne s'appliquent pas. Autrement, un comptoir est à votre disposition si jamais vous désirez plutôt prendre des sandwichs et/ou des salades à emporter.

Good - Edit

I ate here a few months ago. They have a pretty good variety of options in the buffet, and each dish is clearly labeled if theirs dairy etc. in it. It's pay by weight which is nice if you don't eat much.

Pros: Lots of choices

Delicious! - Edit

My husband and I ate here a few times during our recent trip to Montreal, and were never disappointed! My favourites were the roasted red pepper pesto sandwich and the potato salad. There's also a buffet on the second floor, but I'm not personally a fan of buffets where you have to pay by weight.

Pros: lots of vegan options

Don't miss the Petit Végo - Edit

You don't really go to Vego for the atmosphere, but the food is good.

On the second floor, there is a large buffet and vegan dishes are clearly identified. They even have a few vegan desserts and alcohol.You pay by weight and it can get pricey, unless you really fill up your plate (there is a maximum price you can pay) and get a lot of food. I particularly like the potato salad, the pasta dishes and the seitan dishes, and the pastry shells.

On the first floor, you have the Petit Végo, a salad/pizza/sandwich counter where you can choose already wrapped/packaged sandwiches and salads. Some other items are heated and I HIGHLY recommend the vegan pulled pork sandwich, the maple and tempeh sandwich as well as the potato salad.

Pros: Vegan dishes clearly marked, Petit Végo counter, Can stay there long and study/work

Cons: Pay by weight, Not vegan

Definitely my favorite vegan buffet - Edit

I like the idea of weigh the meal and charge you only for that and there are also limits to price.
There are many options and you can actually taste a little of many things.
I recommend when going out with friends.
it is casual.

Pros: casual and not cheap if you don't eat a lot.

Good - Edit

The food here is very good, but the price adds up quickly (by weight), and some of the items seemed like they had been sitting out on the buffet for a while. We enjoyed our meal.

The perfect place for lunch - Edit

So many vegetarian and vegan options. I love the salad bar and the curried/stews. Less cheese in the warm dishes and more raw vegan options for desserts would be great!

Pros: Options, Quality, Pay by weight

Cons: Cheese, Unhealthy desserts

tasty and good value - Edit

it is by the weight and if you watch what you choose then it can be quite worth the while. However the food is fresh and plenty of variety. I went to the till and after weight decided I could add a bit more and it still came to only CAD11. the deserts/cakes are the tricky bit as they tend to carry a bit of weight but very fresh and overall I enjoyed the entire experience, my partner also had different foods and said it was great. for what it is I felt satisfied with the value and the overall freshness.

Pros: quick, no need to read french, taste

Cons: take care with the weight

Quick veg buffet with vegan options - Edit

On the quartier Latin's restaurant row , rue St. Denis, Vego is an easy choice for a quick solo or group lunch or dinner. There are two daily soups and a number of serve-yourself choices of cold salads , greens or grain -based, hot main dishes, veggie sides and desserts including vegan and raw recipes, wine and coffee. I ate there several times and found the menu the same at every meal, so it is predictable. Ocassionally I found some tired, inedible greens in my salad, but overall the quality and tastiness of the choices is high . Non-vegetarian companions were perfectly satisfied with the food, but not the cheap wine.

Pros: Lots of choices, Tasty preparation, Easy self-service & friendly staff
