“Best Restaurant In Nyack”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

My boyfriend and I live in Nyack and visit this place every Thursday for dinner. We have tried everything on the regular menu and bar menu and have never been disappointed. The staff is super friendly and professional, the atmosphere is cozy and romantic and most importantly the food and drinks are out of this world. Drinks and food are also seasonal and the chef and bartenders are always coming up with delicious new additions to their menus. I would highly recommend the goat cheese tart, calamari and polenta fries to start. The rabbit pappardelle, blue cheese filet or fish from the specials menu (always amazing!) for your main course. Don't forget to try their refreshing seasonal sangrias (the winter one was our favorite with hints of cinnamon) and be sure to finish with the peanut butter sformato dessert. My boyfriend rarely eats dessert and he never misses out on the opportunity to indulge in this amazing peanut butter treat. I'm honestly shocked this isn't ranked number one because it truly is the best restaurant in Nyack.

“One of best in Nyack”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Velo is a small, pleasant restaurant with good service and a large, excellent wine list with many single glass choices. The food is really very good. We were a couple and shared a very tasty beet salad which was divided for us in the kitchen. The pork loin was moist and the skirt steak totally tender. Wine recommendations by Drew were spot on. The only problem we encountered was making our reservation. We called after 2 PM as directed but could not actually make the reservation until after 3.

We live in Nyack and have eaten in all the restaurants. This is definitely one of the best.

Live in Nyack and have discovered our favorite place to eat. It is a beautiful restaurant and the staff are very friendly and professional. The bartenders George and Steve are really great. Met Anthony the Chef/Owner and he was very nice. We go once a week and have yet to be dissappointed. Every meal has been excellently prepared and all for a reasonable price. Would reccommend to all. If you are in Nyack you must go to Velo.

“Lives up to its reviews”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Knowing nothing about vacationing in the Hudson Valley, we really had to rely on Tripadvisor to sort us out and that, the reviewers did! Eating here was a wonderful experience from the attentive waiter Drew, to Chef Anthony who put together entrees which lived up to their mouth watering descriptions. From the fresh pasta with rabbit to the skate to the blue cheese crusted beef to the scallops in thai coconut broth-all were winners, and lets not forget the creme brûlée, tops! If you are in the area, don't pass on the chance to eat here. Well done Velo!

We drove up from bergen county after a high recommendation-What a great restaurant! The food was so good-Saddle River Inn could take some lessons on food & service! We loved every dish-scallops entree & shortcut ribs unbelievable-mussels & oysters appetizers were great!!! Our server Dan made the night perfect!!
