Vero Midtown reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Nice, but overpriced
    lilgerryVIP
    Dined on 4/14/2014
    Great menu, particularly if you are vegetarian / vegan... quite a few choices. Everything fresh and well prepared, but compared to other choices in the area the pricing runs about 20% over the market.

    We were unaware that the restaurant is closing at the end of the month and it certainly shows. The service was the worst I've experienced in manhattan and the food was barely ok. It's worth noting that although the restaurant shares it's name with Vero on the Upper East, they are in no way related and that's a very good thing!

    Dined on 1/27/2014
    If they offer the free panini deal to try and get customers to come back for a meal they could definitely amp them up! Mine had melted mozz and slivers of raw red onions, which was not at all how the menu described it. I understand that it's free, but the wine is still pricey so I don't think they would lose anything by making more substantial sandwiches!

    This place has a great ambiance to it and the food is very good as well. I wouldn't say that it has the biggest selection in food, but the food had good flavor and was presented well. I would go there again.

    The service and food was very good as well as the beverages. My only concern is that is was extremely loud and you have to yell to talk. Very small and HOT. It's probably better on a cool day and not so great for large groups.

    I go to Vero quite often. The staff is very slow in both service and thinking on their feet (table placement etc), but I love the scene there and the flatbread pizza is really good :-)

    Went on a late dinner run with my family at 9pm. The restaurant was dark and definitely set up more for a bar/lounge scene. Just not what I expected but not a reason to dismiss the place. The food was great. We had the short rib tacos, truffle mac and cheese and chicken platter. Had great service even with the amount of people there.

    Love this place. We went here for the first time last night after passing it hundreds of times. Its a small quaint place with very dim lighting and little tiny tables. Such a great date place. For entrees, I got the Pan Roasted Organic Chicken, and date got the Scallops. Both dishes were excellent. So good. So freakin good. We had no room for dessert, but the waitress did mention that they have only 1. Its a cookie topped with ice cream. Can they do any wrong?

    Worst experience in a wine bar in NYC yet. Server was the worst, she was super rude and after one glass of wine we couldn't get out fast enough. I will never go to this place again!!!

    Our reservation was not honored - our table was only for outside but it was cold and this was not specified when making the reservation online that we would be seated outside. When we were finally seated inside, the host told us that we could be kicked out of our table and moved somewhere else at any time. Service was slow and food came before drinks.

    Food very tasty but pricy, e.g.$17 for a personal pizza, $25 for a cheese and meat board. Had a couple bottles of a very nice $45 Pinot Noir from Santa Barbara. Great ambiance.

    The food was absolutely delicious. And the wine was great!! Service was totally lacking. Had it not been for the waitress it would have been a perfect dinner. Just a heads up this is definitely an after hours hot spot among the 9-5ers, it gets crowded quickly and the seating inside is extremely limited.

    Friends and I went for after work drinks and dinner - the place was cozy, warm lighting, intimate spaces, and a stretch of seating outside that looked really nice. We made a reservation to sit outside and after being served drinks at the bar by a bored, indifferent bartender while we waited for our table, we were eventually seated behind the door that led to the outside area. Not such a great view for the person sitting across from it. The chairs were highly uncomfortable, the table was cramped, and our waitress was a bit awkward. Overall it was a fine evening, the food was great, but small improvements could have made it a great one!

    I was to meet friends for dinner and didn't realize that the bar had such a crowded and loud scene. Also, I didn't realize that the restaurant and the bar share the same space. We ended up leaving and going next door so that we could hear one another. I could only give it 2 stars based on the bar scene. People there seemed to be happy.

    Vero was a surprise. The food was very tasty although I think the menu could have been a bit more diverse. The service was great. The choice of dessert was limited to 1 choice. The bar scene is energetic and if you are looking for a place to have a romantic dinner or have a good discussion this is not the place. Great for a group .

    Great experience overall. I've been here several times and will go back. Only downside was that they couldn't find my OpenTable reservation and told one member of my party that they don't take reservations. Once I showed them the OpenTable email confirmation, they honored it and found a table for us.
