This meal was everything we could have dreamed of and more. This was easily the best dining experience my boyfriend and I have had in Philadelphia. It comes at a price but is worth every cent. We did the chef’s tasting and left the options up for surprise and were not disappointed. Every dish was absolutely amazing and the service was equally as great. Our favorites were the dry aged ribeye carpaccio, ricotta ravioli, Swiss chard gnocchi and the squab. It’s hard to even pick a favorite.
I recommend going for something special because they do a fantastic job of making the experience feel that way. I will definitely be back there soon!
AMAZING Meal! Service was excellent! Very special evening.
This was a very special dinner for us. The staff was quite professional. The food was delicious. The presentation of all the courses was excellent. All in all, it was a very delightful evening.
Outstanding service and food.
Just simply the best experience.
Some of the foods were superb. Some were not so good. For instance the ricotta ravioli were so delicate in a heavy and sweet sauce. Fettuccine with mushrooms cold. Dover soul swimming in too heavy butter sauce. Service outstanding.
Service was simply amazing. Attentive and generous without being in our face.
Tried for years to get in for dinner but was finally able to secure a lunch reservation. Did not disappoint. Service was beyond good and food with wine pairings was a lot of fun. Hope to go back.
Absolutely amazing. Managed to respect our food allergies while still providing outstanding food and wonderful service. Defintely recommend the wine pairing.
Incredible service and food, some I enjoyed and appreciated more than other dishes
Outstanding dining experience all around. Come hungry! There’s a lot to eat. Had a little bit of a wait before they were ready to seat us, but it was well worth it. The staff go out of their way to provide you with an unparalleled customer service experience, equally educating your culinary understanding and your palate.
Vetri was absolutely fantastic! The food is always incredible, the service is outstanding, and the overall experience is top notch! It’s one of the best restaurants I’ve ever been to! The almond tortellini, gnocchi, and the pistachio flan are an absolute must!!!
The most incredible dining experience we ever had.
My husband and I couldn't stop talking about how wonderful everything was from the minute we walked in to Vetri to the moment we left. The service was outstanding. The food...well, there are just no words to describe how incredible it is. The experience is worth every penny.
Always exceptional and every single facet of the dining experience was out of this world!
We had a wonderful experience...took us a few years to get a reservation, but we were very satisfied! The only suggestion have was to give more time between servings. My husband and I love to linger between courses and talk about the experience we just had before having a new one! But once in a lifetime experience....
Vetri, is an amazing place for a special occasion. Awesome staff!!
Vetri is a very special place. The minute you walk up to the door, someone opens the door to greet and welcome you. This restaurant is elegant without the stuffiness. They explain that the dinner with take 2.5 hours and to sit back, relax and enjoy being pampered. The service was impeccable and friendly! The staff was knowledgeable when explaining the wines, champagnes and how each dish was prepared. We chose the chef's choice. Everything from the crudité served with reduced balsamic, mini pizza, roasted fennel, pate to the onion crepe, dover sole, desserts and everything in between was beautifully presented and was all heavenly! Romantic, warm atmosphere. We loved every minute! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Definitely worth trying for a special occasion but perhaps my expectations where a little too high.
I would absolutely recommend Vetri to anyone I knew had the budget to enjoy it🙂
Best restaurant in Philadelphia. Worth the wait and the $. Service was top notch, felt like a VIP.
Lovely evening, glad we have a place like this in Philadelphia. Great service great food. Definitely did not leave hungry.
This is truly a one-time experience. This is the most expensive dinner I have ever had, but I don't regret it at all. Unlike some other "foodie heaven" restaurants that have been around for a while, this restaurant has maintained a super high quality in every aspect of the experience. The food was impeccable. Our waitress, Diana, was the best waitress we have ever had. The wine pairings were perfect. The entire experience was excellent. I will say, you cannot expect to go to this restaurant as a "dinner." Think of going to this restaurant like going to a Broadway show. The experience take several hours, is extremely educational, and is very fun. But if you go expecting to just have dinner and pay for it, you will be very disappointed when the check comes. You have to expect to pay for the experience not just the food. If you go with that in mind you will not be disappointed. We definitely were not!
Maybe the best meal I ever had in my entire lunch. Wait staff was extremely classy.
It’s the best of the best.
Amazing experience and certainly as good as it gets in Philadelphia and maybe even the world. Once you get to this level of service and quality the discussion becomes would you rather have a Lamborghini or a Ferrari. Love the mix of courses and all the extras they bring that aren’t on the menu! Keep on doing what you’re doing.
Ridiculous - the meticulous attention to detail, the perfect pairing of food and wine, outstanding service. Treat yourself - if you can get in.
Incredible meal from start to finish made better by the engaged and incredibly knowledgeable service
Heard so much hype about this restaurant, it was mediocre at best!
Amazing and special dinner. Service is just incredible (thanks, Bill), food outstanding and the wine pairing is spectacular!
Food and service are on point. Dishes are interesting and surprising. Not to be missed.
As always superb - one of the best dining experiences in the world
This was one of the best meals and service I have ever received. The drinks were equally as fantastic.
Additionally, the flan was amazing, I highly recommend all should get or at least sample this dessert.
Same old menu items and the service was stiff.
It will be impossible to ever top this Valentine's Day dining experience. The Tasting Menu with wine pairing was surely one of the most incredible dining experiences of our lives. We really approached with an open mind and let them surprise us, it was divine.
Sublime. Poetic. Absolutely delicious. One of the finest meals of our lives.
I’ve read that this could be the “ The best Italian restaurant in America”. Well, after enjoying the food and service of Vetri, I would have to agree.
Simply put it is the best restaurant in Philadelphia. If you are looking for an upscale Italian experience you would be hard pressed to find better anywhere.
The food was remarkable; the concept was misleading.
The experience is a prix fixe without the choice - not a chef's tasting. Yes, we were told that if we absolutely neeeeed a dish we can request it, otherwise, it's "up to the chef." The meal is essentially two appetizers, two pastas, one main, and one dessert. Had I known this, I would have 100% picked my own entree. And my own pastas. And my own dessert.....
Also of note, while the wine was indeed well paired, the $135 pp price tag was exceedingly over priced for 2 oz pours of wines that retail for $15-40 per bottle.
Customize your own menu, skip the pairing and order a beautiful bottle of wine for the $250.
The food was simply OK for the price of it. We left full but nothing "wow'ed" us
