Despite seemingly a formal place, once you enter the restaurant has a casual, homely feel. The staff were very friendly and highly accommodating around my pregnant wife's dietary requirements. The multiple courses ranged from good to excellent, but there were probably too many 'good' ones and too few in the ‘excellent’ category. I had the grand wine pairings which were... More

I work in sales and eat out a lot(2-3 x / week) at many fine restaurants across the country. And I love food. So I feel somewhat qualified to have an informed opinion. And my opinion on Vetri is that it is the best food and best service I have to experience. Betony in NYC is a close second but... More

We visited our son in Philadelphia and hosted him for a tasting dinner @ Vetri. It was memorable and worth a trip to Philadelphia for that alone! We had numerous courses, different for each of us, and paired it with wine at each course. It was terrific. Later in the trip we visited one of his other restaurants and were... More

Over the past couple of years, I have eaten in several restaurants that have between one and three Michelin stars or ought to have. This restaurant may think that it comes into that category - and certainly reviews I had read suggested that might be the case - but my experience was of an uncomfortable - in several ways -...

Arrived a bit before 6PM and left at 8/20PM. In between eleven different plates of unbelievably good things to eat were placed on the table. After sitting down a complimentary glass of sparkling wine got me off on a good start. This is an eatery which has a "Chef's Tasting Menu". Guests are given a list of appetizers, pastas, entrees...

And not even close. It is pricey but totally worth it. And please let them surprise you with their choices. We had the wine pairings with our meal and we learned so much about the wine as well as the food it was served with. If you have a special occasion to celebrate, this is the perfect spot. 💕

Look at my reviews - they're all 4 and 5 stars. Why so high? Well, I do my homework and only go to places where the kitchens do wonderful work. The place doesn't have to be fancy - as long as pleasant and professional people serve me a well-prepared and tasty meal. With that being said, my dining experience last... More

The food is very good, and the service is the best in Philadelphia. The knowledgeable wait staff actually like their clients and make them feel as if they are family. There is a Blitzkrieg of different delicacies that run the whole gamut of the food chain. You leave full after a two to three hour performance, which can be likened... More
