My wife and I had high expectations for this Vito's restaurant, but from the moment that we walked in and no hostess was to be found, we knew we were in for it. Our biggest issue was the service. From the 20-30 minute delay for our drinks to the lack of knowledge about what they actually serve, the staff wasn't... More

Work team dinner for 14 people last night, and it was a very enjoyable experience. The food was good (especially the appetizers), and Will, our server was fantastic. The restaurant allowed a corkage fee, so I was able to bring a few bottles of wine to share with our team, which was lots of fun. I would certainly go back... More

We tried this place because we were headed to the airport and I was able to buy a Groupon. So glad we did! The setting is very pretty (our table was by the window overlooking the lovely pond), the waitress was excellent offering tips on things we were ordering (portion size, salad options, etc), and the food was wonderful.

I went for dinner on a Monday night with 5 work colleagues. It was a beautiful evening and were fortunate to sit outside. The service was very good. We started with an appetizer sampler and then I had the grilled salmon which was cooked like I like it, rare.

We celebrated my mother's 90th Birthday over memorial day weekend and it was a blast! There were 15 of us and we were given our own private room, which made it so great for all the kids to run around and adults to be able to talk. We got pizzas for the kids which was super easy and we took... More

We love Vito's -- we have been here several times already (we have their frequent diner card!) But this was the first time we arrived while it still was light out, and we saw the beautiful lake behind the restaurant. It was a lovely evening!

I received a gift card and was looking forward to going out to dinner with my husband. They were having a prom for a small magnet school.

Dear Nancy, I am very sorry to hear about your experience at Vito's by the Water. Unfortunately we had an inexperienced manager working that evening. The manager is no longer working for Vito's by the Water for other reasons including that one. The manager should have moved you into another dining room or asked the DJ to lower the music.... More
