HS graduation brunch

There were almost twenty HS graduates present. They were served a buffet which consisted of a good variety of goodies. The table was set up banquet style which invited easy conversation. We four adults, had our own table in an adjoining dining area. I enjoyed the mimosas--not expensive at all... read more

When UF is in session, this place is probably packed on weekends. We dined here during the summer where all the wear and tear on the decor is visible because it was empty. Service was okay but the food wasn't. The hummus appetizer was mediocre. I ordered their prime steak "medium" and it came out with a rare center. I... More

We had a private room to ourselves for 45 women. They could not have been more accommodating. The tables were decorated with our logos, specialty drinks, 4 choices of entree. We alerted them that we have a toast where we stand on chairs and sing. It was a great evening and I hope we go back each time. Wonderful staff... More

This is a beautiful restaurant and bar in a beautiful part of Gainesville, so I was pleased when business colleagues brought me here as a party of 10 for a recent weeknight dinner. Out server, Mackenzie, was charming and accommodating. The specialty cocktails were a good start to cooling down on a hot evening. I had a wasabi wedge salad... More

Good atmosphere, fun drink menu, tasty tapas. Came here for an office holiday party and can't wait to return. Staff was friendly. Menu was inventive. Sharing is a must so you can try as many things as possible.

My fiance and I love eating at Vellos. His favorite is the salad wedge with Wasabi dressing. We ordered The Chairman's Prime Reserve which was an excellent piece of meat. Extremely tender and very well cooked. The vege's were very tasty. The cheese mashed potatoes were under the meat so got a lot of the juices. Very well made. We... More

The waiters brought water and we ordered appetizers for the table and asked the waiters to hold off on taking dinner orders till everyone was there. One of the waiters was nice and did as we asked but before we knew it the other... More

Have eaten here 3x for lunch. The brick oven Flatbread pizzas are excellent. Service was quite good and the place was always clean. Very good menu & chef. Didn't expect a restaurant lodged on the bottom floor of a hotel to be so good! If the parking situation were better (don't want 2 use the parking garage or pay 4... More
