“Just had a snack....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

Great place to start out at! Had the Cowboy flat bread and a couple glasses of wine. We had our company Holiday party there back in December and the chef could not have been more accommodating! Hint: they need to invest in a wine fridge - our two glasses of red were at room temp and a bit warm :(

“A Happy Meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

My husband and I had dinner at Vellos on a recent Sat. night. The restaurant was packed but the food and service was still wonderful (and cheerful). My husband, a steak lover, had "The Chairman's Reserve" and ate it with a smile on his face. I had "Herb Roasted Salmon" which came with the most wonderful quinoa pilaf. Both our dishes were cooked perfectly. There were other things on the menu that I want to try too, so this restaurant will get a repeat visit!

“FLATBREAD - Yummy!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

We have been going to this location over the years an it has changed names a few times but the one consistent thing is that the flat-bread's are WONDERFUL!! We have not had a "meal" there ... however I can tell you that when we were there last I looked around at the plates being served & they looked GREAT!! Lots of food, the steaks are BIG & it looked like they were easy to cut & chew so I'm going to get a meal there next time I am in town.

“Great place, fun atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Recently ate here with my family and a bunch of students. The staff and service were very good. They quickly made a table for our large party on a busy Saturday evening. Everyone loved their food. I enjoyed their sushi and a delicious martini. The potato chips with blue cheese were delicious too. The atmosphere is cozy and upbeat. You have a college town feel there without too much rowdiness. I will return!
