Always worth the trip

Fresh is the word at Vello's. We personally enjoy the pork tenderloin and sirlon steak. A nice wine, bear & cocktail selection. Happy hour daily. I suggest bringing your appetite.

My daughter and I had a great meal and great service. We tried the unicorn fish and basil watermelon margarita, both were delicious. Service was quick and friendly.

I am very glad we stopped by this restaurant to have dinner. The menu was a lot different from what we expected, but it all seemed interesting and sounded delicious. It had been a long day for my husband and I as we were visiting are kids, whom all attend The University of Florida. Our server Lance was EXTREMELY great... More

My daughter-in-law made reservations to this restaurant on Saturday the 28th, of this past week and everything was a TEN from the begininng to end. We had one server between the twelve of us and he was 120% on top of taking care of us, are needs and keeping our alcoholic beverages flowing. Lance was a respectful young man and... More

Staying at Hampton Inn and walked by. Spoke with the nice hostess outside and decided to come back later for dinner. Spiced pear-ginger martini to start with was great. Stuffed dates for appt and seared tuna for entrée. The tuna was the very best quality. Kristyn was an excellent server. Manager came by for a visit to check on us.... More

We had dinner at Vellos tonight. When we arrived, the waiter put us at a noisy table next to the bar. We saw a booth opposite was empty and asked for it. He said the booths were reserved for 4 people. During our dinner we noticed a party of two sitting at the formerly empty booth. I ordered the sesame... More

I like Vellos enough. I've been there several times, less often recently. Went with friends for an evening light meal. The four of us sat at the bar and ordered food and drinks. Nothing spectacularly good or bad. One of the better flatbreads, the Fig and Pig, has been removed from the menu, but they will still make it upon... More

We went to this place for lunch because of pretty good reviews, but when we opened the door we were met with a wall of TV's blasting away. Restaurant operators have told us the TV's distract diners from the quality of the food, and also make them eat more quickly. So if there are a lot of TV sets in... More

We had a party of 9 and the service was very good. Two wait staff were attentive to our needs. The restaurant was clean and the hostess at the door also assisted in busing tables. Busy Thursday night, but it appeared to be well managed. Baked Brie app. was delicious. The flat bread entrees were also cooked just right. I... More
