It was excellent. However there was too much food. I didn’t have to sample so many delicious dishes in one visit. More is not more all the time.

The staff was great and the service amazing. The sommelier was a vault of wine knowledge and the wine she helped us choose was fantastic. I really wanted to love the food but was genuinely unimpressed. The food was not worth the price tag. I am the first person to pay whatever it takes for a fabulous dining experience but this did not live up to the hype.

Been waiting for many years to visit this destination and our expectations were not let down. The service by all may have exceeded the food, especially with Bill! Each course was decadent and impressed with how they went above and beyond! Definitely not cheap but memorable for a long time! I'm still debating if it's better then Tahlula's Table....

Came here for my boyfriend’s birthday and we can both agree that Vetri exceeded all of our expectations. The most amazing part of the restaurant is the incredible service. Everybody is constantly going out of their way to ensure you have everything you need, you are enjoying everything and you are comfortable. It is clear that the wait staff and kitchen staff truly love what they do.
The food was incredible and we tried so many dishes we never imagined of trying. We left full and happy.
This restaurant is absolutely worth the wait and the price. We will definitely be back!

Vetri is not only food the best it can possibly be prepared but it is also the service and presentation by a superior staff who live and breath to make Vetri a unique experience. Their service is also as good as it can be done. We have returned time after time and on each return we are greeted like we are old friends. Every course and every decision is discussed with exquisite detail. Their knowledge of food and wine is unequaled and their knowledge of people and how to create an adventure with food is superior. Every year I write about the food. This time I thought it was important to salute the staff. We will return again and again.

The service and food were memorable; it is a crowded little place and when it is filled (always) it gets a bit noisy and tight, but it is an experience well worth these tribulations.

The Manry courses and extras take time, so don’t be in a hurry and expect a hefty tab at the end.

The experience was outstanding, from the food to the service. The staff was attentive, the meal was well paced and I didn't feel rushed [I stayed for 3.5 hours], I was able to try the dishes I really wanted from the tasting menu including two decadent desserts[they ask that you allow the chef to surprise you] and they served me several mocktails at no additional charge. While the per person prix fixe was a bit steep [I think they could stand to lower it a tad] I didn't feel like I had been grossly overcharged when I left and would return again in a heartbeat.

My boyfriend and I dined at Vetri on 6/30/18. We were celebrating an anniversary and looking forward to an exceptional dining experience. Right off the bat, we had to wait almost 45 minutes for a table for two that I reserved well in advance. When you are spending $400 per person, including wine pairings, tax, and tip, this is really inexcusable. Also, because it was a special anniversary celebration, I had asked for a more private table and not one of those banquette style tables of two that are directly next to other tables of two. Well, they didn't honor my request and gave the more private table to the couple who arrived after we did. Additionally, I was disappointed that although the food and service were very good, they were not as special as the two other times I dined there. My boyfriend had never been there before and I really wanted him to have an exceptional dining experience. He was not overwhelmed and neither was I. I don't think that we will be returning any time soon.

Our favorite hobby is eating at places with great food. We have had the privilege of eating a lot of really good meals over the years. But the meal we had at Vetri this week was undoubtedly the best meal we have ever had. We went for my 40th birthday (this is definitely not in our normal price range), and the experience from beginning to end was amazing. Every dish that was brought to us was beyond delicious. I don't have the time to list everything we ate, but I can say there were zero bad bites. Our servers were so attentive and knowledgeable. Their knowledge of the menu and the wines was very impressive. They made us feel special, taking great care of us. We were also thrilled to be able to say hello to Marc Vetri while we were there. This is not the kind of place we can say that we will be back at soon, but it is definitely the kind of place we can say we cannot wait to get back to! And if you have a special occasion to celebrate, I could not recommend Vetri any more highly!

Fabulous attention to detail which creates a great dining experience. The food is always perfect with innovative touches. And, the service is just awesome. A few delicious notes included the calamari and artichoke galette, the whole red snapper, tuna crudo, fig ravioli. The wine pairing was also great. I especially enjoyed the Ignaz Niedrist, Sauvignon Blanc from Alto Adige and Moscato d'Asti "Canelli" from Piedmont! It's always special at Vetri Cucina. Bravo.

Second we have been there. Food and service are impeccable as expected. We have frequented Vetri restaurants for over a decade and have always had outstanding meals. However the price is quite excessive and the value really isn’t there. We have had almost nearly as great experiences at his and other locations at 1/2 or 2/3 the cost.
