A 100% wonderful experience - Edit

Vinaigrette met or exceeded all our expectations. It was easy to find, despite nearby road construction, close to I-40 (we were traveling through and didn't want a big detour) and there was plenty of parking. We sat outside on the very nice, verdant, clean, bright, colorfully-umbrella'd patio, due to having our little dog with us, and the service was prompt, friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. The menu was to die for – not only great food but also really unique and delicious beverages, such as the fresh fruit-and-veggie juice blends with soda water that we had. We shared the brothy, flavorful wild mushroom soup, an elaborate salad with two different house-made vinaigrettes, some EXCEPTIONAL griddled tofu, and marinated artichoke hearts. Everything was divine, except artichoke hearts a little too salty, and I'm only sad I don't get through Albuquerque more often so I could sample the rest of the menu. No issues whatsoever with service, pricing, or the overall experience. Truly enjoyable.

Huge portions! - Edit

I have been there twice, and enjoyed the Asian Chopped Salad both times, with added grilled tofu. Loved the food! Not cheap, but truly large portions. Very cute, trendy ambience and good service. Tons of options for vegans.

I've been to the one in Santa Fe as well, and they are just as good!

Pros: Lots of options, Friendly staff

Cons: Expensive

A happy regular eater - Edit

I live in ABQ and love to eat at Vinaigrette, much of the menu can be made vegetarian and a good number of the items can be made vegan. All the salads are built to order. You can change salad dressings to your liking. Beyond the great salads, I love their mushroom stew (vegan). They offer a 'lunch couples' menu at noontime which consists of a cup of soup and a half portion of their salads for $10. This is plenty of food for lunch. They routinely offer seasonal specials and there usually is at least one new vegan item offered in addition to the regular menu. Fresh food at fair prices. Great for dinner too. So happy they opened up in ABQ (they started in Santa Fe).

Pros: Great, fresh, organic food, Flexible menu, vegan friendly, Bright environment

Cons: Some tables have back killing benches

Kale salad was superb. Ambiance charming. - Edit

I loved the salad. Tasty and fresh. Wine selection also good. I tried their house Pinot and it was delightful. The decor is pleasantly unique and the staff professional. The playlist was perfect to create a nice dining experience. I will definitely be back.

Pros: Ambiance, Salads

Cons: None

Nice Vegan Options Available - Edit

I ordered a kale salad that had black beans, avocado and pepitas. I asked them to hold the cheese and add some beets instead of chicken, which they happily did. The lemon vinaigrette made it a great salad. Not cheap, but the big takeout box was enough for lunch and dinner. The interior was light and featured nice colorful paintings.

Pros: willing to veganize, lots of veganizable options

Cons: expensive

Super hip, super tasty - Edit

Not vegan, but very easy to eat veggie and be happy. Pleasant ambience, good beer, and the crowd was a good mix of families and hipster wannabes like me. I felt right at home and left looking forward to my next visit.
