This restaurant is by far the best I have been to in the USA. The restaurant has a tasting-kind-of menu. We were treated with a lot of different bites that were all close to perfection. Besides the amazing food, the atmosphere was spot-on. The servers were always on time (never interfered with our conversation) and discrete while having a conversation.... More

My wife and I dined at Vetri in Nov 2015. I had high expectations based reviews both on-line and newspaper columns. I was not disappointed. Each course was a work of gastronomic art. A delight to the eye and the palate! Definitely expensive, probably not a place to go on regular basis. But for that special occasion it is perfect.... More

Went to Vetri several nights ago. Wonderful from start to finish! Food was amazing! Service impeccable. Been to many NYC restaurants, and this place is every bit as good as their best places. Cudos to Mark Vetri! Philly is proud of you and this restaurant.

We had reservations at Vetri on June 29th. We looked forward to our dinner and were not disappointed. The evening began with a complimentary glass of Prosecco. Our server, Bill, was outstanding. He explained the tasting menu and asked about our food preferences. He was also (along with entire staff) aware of my food allergy. Some of the highlights for... More

I took my husband here as a surprise. We both loved it! Seriously, don't eat the entire day before this meal. I've never had so much food in my life. They even served 3 kinds of bread with this meal. Who needs all that bread?! From start to finish the experience was fantastic. The place itself is small and romantic.... More

The food was creative and exceptionally prepared. The service was top notch. It's a small place with very limited seating so book early.

I love this restaurant. It's pricy but the food is delicious and I love the ambiance. Great for date night. Also the wine selection is superb.

This is a definite dining destination in Philadelphia, however, even though Vetri is (or was) in the upper echelon of dining experiences, it now has serious competitors that provide gourmet tasting menus but at much, much more digestible price. Unless you're flush with cash, this place is a once-every-few-years-special-occasion kind of restaurant. Regardless of how perfect a dining experience is,... More

One of our top dining experiences! We usually rate them by atmosphere, food, staff etc...Vetri had it all! The wine list was amazing, the experience was intimate, romantic and the food was off the charts!
