  • so sorry to hear they're closing

    so sorry to hear they're closing. i ate there for the first time 2 weeks ago and have been there a total of three. I think SBE should reconsider closing this gem. a little promotion on its existence might help its success.

    I had been hearing rave reviews about this Italian "tapas" place. Delicious variety in small portions so you can try various things. The ambiance was suppose to be sooo nice. Well... it was all that and then some. The service... does not miss or skip a beat. Just perfect. Pleasant, attentive, just down right great. The food... we tried 8 different plates and it just kept getting better and better. The flavor in each bite made be stop to savor the moment. We had some amazing wine that just catapulted the experience.

    I'm from southern Louisiana and I can tell you - it takes quite a bit to "impress" me when it comes to the topic of food. The food at Veto was absolutely spectacular. The scallops were the best I have ever consumed...hands down. The drinks were only "so-so", but the quality and flavor of the meal more than made up for that. Prices were extremely reasonable as well. Highly reccomemded!

    We booked for 7:30 on Friday, and were a bit surprised to find the restaurant not very busy. But as the evening progressed, the restaurant and bar filled up nicely. So it is safe to say this place gets going a bit later than some other WEHO restaurants. Menu was interesting and the food was very good.

    Besides the food being amazing the staff was on top of their game. Our drinks were never empty and empty plates were removed immediately. We ordered a desert to share and they brought us a platter with three of their best deserts complimentary for our anniversary and the manager made sure to come by each table before the customers left. We were beyond pleased with the food, service and surroundings.

    The ambiance is very hipster, like a nice bar/restaurant. This is definitely a fun place to come out if you don't do the club scene - it's a great substitute. I wanted the food to be good - and we were all disappointed. The food is sub-par, mediocre at best. But the service is very attentive and our waitress was a sweetheart.

    I was pleasantly surprised by the progression of the food we had and felt like the meal was fresh, well thought out and each dish was prepared and delivered at the perfect time and sequence. I'd recommend this place (and am also a fan of Cleo) Both are way too loud for me as I don't hear very well, but if they were quiet, I suppose they wouldn't be as "cool"...

    Everything is beautiful here, from its patrons to the decor. It may not look like an elegent place from outside, but you'll love it the second you walk in. Let their super-friendly bartenders help you choose what to order if you sit at the bar.

    Without a doubt the food and cocktails are exceptional. Each time I've been here I've enjoyed it more and more. I'll definitely return very soon. The food is scrumptious and portion size is just right. Oh yeah, the blood-orange martini is amazing!!!

    Special occasion. We went there being very excited. We made a reservation for 930 for 2. They sat us right by the waiters station, not ok. We waited for a table another table for 2. Meanwhile they tried to sit a walk in for 2 at the same table and they refused. Then a table for 2 opened up and they sat the walk in before us. Kinda rude. We finally sat down. Orderered drinks which took forever and then food. The food came out in very small portions almost like tapas which we were not aware of. Everything was very tasty but we wanted more of it. The service was ok, but it was a strange dining experience.

    Planned a birthday dinner for a friend at Mercato di Vetro on a Saturday night. We had a group of 12, so they gave us the private dining room which was great! A nicely decorated private room to ourselves. I was also impressed that the restaurant called to confirm my reservation and the staff was very helpful when I arrived at the restaurant. It was Dine LA week, so many of us had their three-course meal for $25, which has unbelievably tasty options! Everyone really enjoyed their drinks and dishes. Only issue would be the timing of when the dishes came out of the kitchen. They have three kitchens and dishes came out in no apparent order, but we had three dishes that came out 30-45 minutes later than the rest. But I will definitely be back!!

    I've been here a few times over the past couple of years and I continue to be impressed. It seems like a place that would be snooty and have a lot of attitude, but that has never been my experience. The food is delicious, the specialty cocktails are unique (the gin, st. germain and red wine drink was amazing), and the service is really friendly. I highly highly recommend the hamachi. We got one order to share for 4 and it was so good we got 2 more orders!

    I had high expectations for eating here as I frequently eat at their sister restaurant Cleo's how ever the food was no way near the calibre of the food there. The prosciutto plate + Branzino dish was delicious how ever the other plates were drowned in liquid smoke of garlic. The hostess was extremely rude, when we inquired to be seated at a different tavle due to the table we were seated at was poorly positioned she informed us it was being turned into a larger table later. If that was in fact valid we would have accepted it but within 10 minutes she seated a table of 3 on the table we desired. Our waiter was great, he took off a dish from our check as we informed him we did not enjoy it. Tried it, tasted it, will not be returning!!

    This place had been recommended by a few people I trust. But honestly, the dishes are overcomplicated and heavy. There was a lot of garlic and sauce on everything. I had an upset stomach afterwards. I prefer simple and fresh. This was not that.

    Food was excellent, but I don't have one friend who doesn't feel ripped off with small plates. We ate at the palms last week which is by far more expensive but the perceived value of the food and portion size of what we ordered made our group feel as if it was money well spent. If this place went back to full service and not the "we have three kitchens and things come out at anytime" excuse we would return. Also way to bright to be romantic.

    I wont go on and on with every detail. My friend and I discussed the experience at length and decided everything we ordered was good, but nothing was great. Between us we ordered 6 plates and 2 signature drinks, and the best thing we ate was the focaccia. The service was very friendly, so there isn't much to gripe about, but no real draw to return either.

    Upstairs is better than downstairs. Downstairs feels like a 60's diner and there was a slight stale fragrance in the air. The menu was exciting, but the food we choose was uneven. The Burrata toast appetizer was great, but my artichoke pizza crust was soggy. The ricotta raviolo was not very good. The waiter seemed impatient and rude. His crumpled shirt looked like he slept in it.

    I was very disappointed with the food. We had to wait around for our server a lot and it wasn't that busy until we left. He didn't tell us one of the dishes was really spicy. I like spicy but I simply took a few bites and couldn't eat the rest. The blackberry bacon pizza was good but the blackberries kept rolling off the pizza because the crust was paper thin. I was very disappointed overall.

    The best meal I've had in a long time. Friendly, top notch service. Well priced for such culinary perfection and chic, but casual atmosphere. Try the mushroom pizza and anything with Buratta cheese, it was the tastiest Buratta that I've ever been served.

    The food is excellent everything that we ordered was well made and delicious. The plates are made to share with your group which was good because we were able to taste different things from the menu. Some plates I wish were larger but I guess it was because they were so good and I had to share. The drinks were also very good and they have a big selection on drinks and wines. We also had dessert and the chocolate bar included a scoop of Cardamon gelato it was amazing. Our waitress was very helpful and helped us choose our meal, she gave us woderful suggestions. It was our first visit to this restaurant but we plan to return and try other things on the menu.

    I was quite pleased with my meal at Mercato di Vetro. The branzino and the stuffed squash blossoms were both excellent. The raviolo was good, but less elegant and polished than the rest of the meal. The doughnut hole dessert was perfect. There's a wonderful Verminto on the wine list. Inexpensive but excellent.
