                                              I loved Velo. The cocktails are generously served and the menu, on its own, is inventive and inspiring. Don't overlook the specials however, since Chef Anthony really let's his imagination shine with mouthwatering delights. Desserts are sheer comfort. The ambiance is cozy, warm, and romantic.

                                              Previously ate at their sister restaurant, Bici, in Ramsey and loved it, so we decided to try Velo. The food is good, but pricey for the portions. The service was just okay. It's a fine restaurant, but I think after having such a great experience at Bici this felt like a bit of a let down.

                                              Wonderful food, fantastic bar and good wine selection. Velo never disappoints! The servers really know their stuff. We have gone for special occasions as well as the occasional dinner out. I love that it is a quaint, yet sophisticated bar as well as a superb bistro. Add to that some time exploring the lovely town of Nyack and you have a very nice night out.

                                              We enjoyed a delicious dinner. The beet salad was a different type of salad to start. The salmon, potato pancake and Brussels sprouts were delicious.

                                              Beet salad first, then mussels. Super combo! My son loves the cauliflower appetizer.

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!

                                              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.
