  • "I have used Vetro the Murano Room for 3 consecutive years for a special event for my departements. Food and service has always been excellent. So I decided to try their restaurant...and I was not disappointed... Food was once again very good and so was the service. I will definitely go back."

  • "Service was excellent. My group got a bit boisterous after our second bottle of the waiter's recommendations yet we were not hushed by anyone. The decor is beautiful, just classic and I heard the rooftop is great. Only complaint was there were any cannolis"

  • "They don't carter to children and waited 45 minutes to be seated. I had made reservation for 8:30pm. It is a nice place but over priced for this neighborhood. If I am going to pay for manhattan prices then I would go into the city to eat and enjoy the food. The only reason I went because I live in the neighborhood."

  • "Vetro's was beautiful. I went on Father's Day with my parents and we were seated at a beautiful waterfront table. The food was fantastic, & so was my waiter Alex. My only complaint would be that the patrons seem to have no control over their children, letting them run around as they please and ruin people's dinners, but that is of no fault of the restaurant. Overall great experience."

  • "Brunch was ok. Not kid friendly or a kids menu. My table did not have an umbrella although I asked for one. They could not accommodate us even though tables with umbrellas became available. So we had to sit in the hot burning noon sun for our entire meal. My 7 year old was not happy and I had to get up from my table and stand in shade."

  • "Food was very good. Went for Father's Day with a group of 7 and everyone enjoyed their dinner. Only negative food item was the lobster mac and cheese. It was awful...inedible. Need to improve that or remove it from menu! Went up on rooftop afterwards for drinks and was impressed. Lovely atmosphere and view."

  • "Having spent a copious amount of time in Italy, I am very particular when it comes to Italian food. Vetro exceeded my expectations. The food, ambiance and service were amazing. The meal was out of this world, flavorful, fresh and perfect. It's exactly how Italian food should be. Plus I loved the dessert tasting menu. Well done !"

  • "No surprise here, Vetro is consistently outstanding! From the warm greeting at the door to the four-star service and delectable culinary selections, you can't go wrong. This is big city dining (think Manhattan or Rome), with neighborhood convenience and attention to detail and customer service."

  • "Vetro is a fine, special occasion restaurant which lends itself well to celebrations, ergo Mother's Day. The food is always gourmet-worthy and the service is comparable. Although somewhat more pricey than the average, neighborhood "gem", every aspect of the "dining experience" comes together perfectly and makes for that "special occasion" feeling. Highly recommended."

  • "Everything was great, the food was delicious , the service was super. Everybody was friendly and attentive The only issue was that we were celebrating my sisters birthday and the fact that she was pregnant and I wanted our table to have an outside view to make the occasion memorable and we were told the tables were already taken. The main reason why I chose this restaurant was for the view and I was kind of disappointed "

  • "My fiance and i went on Sunday just the two us of for an early dinner being. As soon as you drive into the parking lot the valets are there with a smile gladly to help and take care of your car. The doorman is very friendly. This place is beautiful you walk in to a friendly concierge who seats you in an elegant dining room. Once seated the staff were so attentive and friendly. A must try is the Sunday Dinner it is outrageous great homestyle italian gravy. The oso bucco is to die for and the salmon with risotto is amazing. There is not one downside about this place. The service and food was great!! "

  • "We had such a wonderful time at Vetro's on Saturday night! The food was incredible (I highly recommend the Lobster Cappucino especially), and every attendant, from valet to hostess to server, was genuinely friendly and attentive. We were seated in kind of a nook next to a window overlooking the water, and it was not only a gorgeous view, but a great noise level to be able to really talk at our table. We could hear the music, but it was not too loud, nor were the other diners. It's not cheap, but it is totally worth it for a special and memorable time together-- we brought relatives from California who we hadn't seen in a long time, and they couldn't stop raving about it."

  • "Attention to detail from the moment we walked in.....impeccable service and exceptional food. The waiter was extremely knowledgeable about the food and wine menus and was very helpful in accommodating my wife's food allergies to garlic and onions. No request was too much for the chef to handle The staff made this a night to remember. ..... "
