This restaurant in quality! Although you’ll spend your money for it, it’s not cheap, the food is just delicious and the menu has so many options you’ll not find anywhere else. The portions are perfect, you leave feeling satisfied and not stuffed but just...well fed! Every bite is delicious! I highly recommend Velo!

Always amazing! By far one of my favorite places in the tri-state area! The Gnocchi with the Lamb Bolognese is the best gnocchi I've ever had! I have to keep coming back!

Initially thought menu was limiting when I checked on-line but everyone was able to select what they wanted and food was excellent!

Service was attentive without being pushy and never rushed.

One of the best dining experiences in the area!! Creative dishes that are reasonably priced served up in a cozy atmosphere by a very attentive staff. Dine regularly at their sister restaurant Bici in Ramsey which is just as good. Highly recommend.

I'm tired of booking Restaurant Week reservations when they are not honored at the times available to choose from. Restaurant Week needs to be clear when making a reservation that certain nights or times are excluded.

The food and wine were tasty. Unfortunately our waiter seemed to be bothered by the fact he was waiting tables. He forgot our appetizer-was unapologetic and asked rather gruffly if we still wanted it. His lack of personality and any remote enthusiasm did dampen the overall experience a bit. The restaurant was also very loud...

The chicken and beef main courses were very good, with the perfect blend of flavors. The appetizers of pasta with sausage and cauliflower cake left a bit to be desired. Overall, a pretty decent restaurant.

My wife is Gluten-free and from the beginning they were very accommodating, telling us which meals could and could not be altered slightly - and still remain delicious. Among the three of us we had a pork shank, a lamb shank, and a shrimp risotto. All were exceptional and delicious. We had a fall bourbon cocktail that was perfect for the season. And unique. It was high end dining, but not overly expensive. We would certainly go back again should we find ourselves in Nyack again.

3 things- most importantly, it's a wine bar and we were served a bottle of unchilled Sancerre? When asked for pepper for a salad, we were given ordinary black pepper in a shaker, not from a mill. Thirdly, when asked to change to our table, they claimed that they had a reservation for the table by the window. No one showed. For an upscale restaurant , it was disappointing.

First time visit to Velo and it will definitely not be the last. Food and service were excellent. I particularly liked the location in the quieter part of Nyack away from the more active Main Street area. Looking forward to returning. Entire staff was right on spot.

Although the food was good, I was a little disappointed in that the chef would make NO changes to any of his recipes when I told him I didn't care for one of the ingredients and asked for a substitution. Serving size was quite small and it was a very costly lunch. The decor was just okay.

The food was amazing. We both had the salmon special with farro and were so glad that we did. The special beet salad was outstanding. The service was great and we appreciated that the server didn’t overfill our wine glasses. The restaurant is small so there can be a lot of noise. But the small size and intimacy and international dishes lend to its charm.
