Vetro by Russo's on the Bay Ratings and Reviews
Vetro tries to be upscale but misses the mark.
Service is non-existent; it took the busboy 10 minutes to bring anything on the table; followed by the waiter about 15+ minutes in total before we even saw a menu! Waiter was knowledgable about the daily specials.
Food was OK, served on hot plates; the veal was tough and mediocre.
Hot water served was brown; busboy apologized, took the cups away but never returned with replacements. By this time we were ready to leave.
At the front desk, receptionist could not locatetthe take home bag; she had to go into the kitchen; not delivered to the front coat checkout beforehand.
If you want to spend two hours for a simple two course dinner, this is the place to go;
God forbid if the dining room was full; It may take a whole evening!.
What was efficient; the valet parking. A ticket wasn't even required; my vehicle was out in front when I exited the restaurant and attendant immediately drove it up.
I am never disappointed at Vetro. The food is always so delicious, using high quality ingredients, in creative preparations. The service is professional. The decor is lovely and the option to eat outdoors in the summer, on the canal, enhances the experience. We also enjoy the live music in the lounge on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. We return to Vetro again and again.
Terrific Service and wonderful food on a cold and snowy night in Jamaica! We were treated like a king and a queen and the staff deserves all the credit! Plus, the wine list is notable, with a wine from a very small winery in Montespertoli, Italy which we had just recently visited, so we were amazed to have seen it in the US on a wine list. Don't miss this place and especially on "Half Price Wine Wednesdays"!
The service from beggining to end was impeccable. The food was amazing and the atmosphere was divine. This was the first time for my girlfriend to experience Vetros. This started the night perfectly as I proposed to her later on that evening. Thank you for making the experience magical.
We have visited Vetro several times and the food and service are impeccable; but this time we had to wait 20 minutes for a table even though we had reservation for 8:45pm. When they finally came to seat us, they didn’t even apologize for the delay which I was very surprised for a high-end restaurant.
Service was excellent; from the host, head waiter to the person that actually served us was superb. Customer service was on point; whole team of people were polite and personable. I was there for my birthday n would definitely go back again for other occasions. The fire cracker candle on dessert was funny n very thoughtful.
I loved it.
My wife and I went for her birthday. We had a amazing time. It was our second visit there, and we were not at all disappointed. The manager Tial and the server Pure, where two of the best servers I’ve had in my NYC experience. We very much enjoyed the food, and the drinks were great.
I was there to celebrate my 10 year wedding anniversary. From the valet to the door man, from our hostess to our server, everyone was professional and kind. Russo's is a beautiful restaurant. The service was excellent. The food was delicious. The portions were big. The prices are reasonable. I highly recommend Russo's.
The food here was outstanding! We both loved everything that we ordered and will defiantly be returning again. I had the pumpkin ravioli and my fiancé had the mushroom risotto (with truffle). Both were simply amazing. The service was also impeccable. Looking forward to the next visit!
Food was excellent and the staff very helpful Good thing I telephoned the night before to check on the live music because they had no record of my reservation through OPEN TABLE. Not their fault, something went wrong on OPEN TABLE'S end. Vetro was wonderfully helpful to me and I brought my confirmation from OPEN TABLE and they contacted them to let them know they had no record of my reservation. It all worked out.
The best restaurant that my wife and I had gone to in a while. The staff was great. They had very good knowledge of the menu and made good recommendations. Our waiter, David, was very professional and made our dining experience one to remember. As for the food.......oh the food. It was so good. Well prepared and presented. Tasted like heaven if heaven was a flavour. I would definitely recommend this place to others. Thanks again Kim!
We were treated very warmly and courteously. However, I have been a patron for almost 5 years and the menu has changed, And, I might add, not for the better.
Eclectic dishes are no longer on the menu and although prepared very well, the food is ordinary. I am no longer impressed.
We love Vetro. The Russo family is a class operation. Yesterday we had the Sunday Brunch Special. What a deal $30 price fixed, you cant beat it!
You get a complimentry cocktail, mini bagels, buns and bread, choice of an appetizer, and choice of a main course. There is plenty to choose from and a great variety from breakfast foods like omlettes and pancakes to lunch foods and my favorite pasta with a Sunday Sauce!!!! And of course a special desert. What a wonderful experience. Everyone should try this. I know we'll be back.
BTW the diners are great too!
The food was tasty. The Caeser salad was tasty but no anchovies. The dessert was minimal and consisted of one very small cannoli and one small zeppole per person. The bread was boring. Even though we were the only patrons in the room is was noisy with staff talking over us while booking another party and dragging chairs through the room.
We stopped and had a drink at the bar while waiting for some friends to arrive, we had a great Bartender . We were greeted and shown to our table by the hostess.
We had David as our waited, who was very knowledgeable regarding the specials and was very polite and professional.
We will return!!
A Birthday Dinner for a special friend and also took advantage of their extended Restaurant Week.
Upon arrival our hostess Teal asked if we wanted to sit inside or outdoors we opted for outdoor, waited to be seated for ten minutes in the lounge area beautiful. Outdoor seating was an amazing view only slight down was the noise level some planes flew by but not too bad. Our waiter Mark was very attentive appetizers (chicken and rice meat balls yum) entrè ( salmon and pork osso bucco delicious), dessert was chefs selection ( fruits with whip cream yummy ) . They also served the dessert for my friend with a candle celebrating her birthday. I would 100% recommend this restaurant to anyone can't wait to go back!!!
