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... read more

We made a reservation ahead and went to Vello's with 21 people for a graduation celebration. 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

Attended a reception April 24, 2015 in Vellos private room. Excellent Wait staff, non intrusive, never had to ask for anything, glasses never empty, food just appeared on our table. We had the most delicious sirloin steak we have ever eaten, cooked perfectly and cut like butter. Assorted vegetables were very good, all plated very nicely. Flat bread, stuffed dates... More

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.

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.

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

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

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
