Hello Suzana,

I wanted to thank you helping us put together a wonderful party.  My daughters’ Sweet 16 was an evening of pure joy! The party was a huge success. Everyone raved about the space. It was absolutely perfect. SGE really delivered and provided an awesome night of great music. Everyone was dancing the whole night and nobody wanted to leave. We had a diverse group and a great time was had by all. Thank you for making my daughters’ sweet sixteen a night that they will never forget.

Your truly, Aspa C. June 7, 2018

Thank you for everything! The party was a success. I’m glad we extended the party, the timing worked out perfectly where we didn’t feel rushed, thank you for allowing that to happen. Everyone loved everything, and I would definitely have another event there.

Take care. Sincerely,

I just wanted to thank you for handling the details of my baby shower. Everything came together beautifully on Saturday from the food to the cake–exactly how I envisioned everything in my head. My friend and family were very impressed.

Thanks again!

I would like to say ‘THANK YOU’ for a splendid, awesome, great dinner.  I had people from Washington D.C., Delaware, and Maryland who all enjoyed your food and service.  Thank you to Suzana for your help, especially the day before when I was a nervous wreck.  People who live here locally, all said they are going to Vetro’s now for brunch, lunch or dinner.   Sincerely, Marianne   Will definitely see you again.

Dear PJ,

I want to personally thank everyone at Vetro’s for making my daughters bridal shower a beautiful and rememberable event.

From reception to wait staff, service was extremely professional and elegant. Our personal attendant, Pure, handled himself in a manner which left all my guests in awe. Not one guest had to ask for anything, he saw to it that each guest was taken care of even before they could ask for anything. Everyone including myself very much appreciated his professionalism. High praise to this young man.

A guest of mine was also so impressed that she is arranging a booking for next June for her husband’s 40th birthday! From the delicious food to the elegant service and beautiful accommodations, Vetro’s is the best!

I normally don’t respond to these kinds of thank you.

However, I find this to be the exception.

Not living in the area you were referred to us by both my now daughter in law Courtney Cullen and my associate Maureen Medrich.

I have been to your restaurant a couple of times before and was very happy with the food and service.

However, I was extremely impressed with this affair again the food was great but what really impressed me was the staff from Suzana to the head waiter and all the staff their professionalism and courtesy was something that you rarely get today no matter where you go.

I know this is lengthy but as a former business owner I would like to get this feedback.

Regards to PJ for a great time.

The food and service was outstanding. The outdoor patio was inviting and comfortable.  I would recommend this restaurant to all fine dining lovers.

We go every year for my boyfriend’s Birthday and we love it. We get the same waiter every year and he is the best.  The food is always outstanding. We are never disappointed. Cannot wait for next year’s Birthday dinner.

The best restaurant on the planet. Service and food is impeccable. There ended up being a rainbow right over the bay so we had the ultimate view as well. Thanks so much for an amazing dining experience as usual.

This restaurant is certainly a cut above most in it’s category. The food is exceptionally delicious and prepared with great care. The service is truly outstanding in every respect, with the waiter attending to the table eager to make this a special dining experience and the hostess making you feel totally comfortable and virtually at home. Our waiter was Stephen Manfre, a man with a true gift for creating a familial ambiance that serves to enhance dining and celebrating with friends. The hostess Tele, could not have made you feel more welcome with her warm and solicitous manner. Both of these individuals helped to make this a rewarding and special event, one that will prompt many future visits to this remarkable restaurant.

Our host was very knowledgeable in all aspects. He is a true professional and an asset to Vetro. Also a gracious gesture on the part of the owner of Vetro was appreciated.

Love this place!!! Food is amazing, service is attentive and it’s right on the water. This restaurant is really romantic for an anniversary or a special occasion. The lobster mac and cheese is the best I’ve ever had!! You have to try it! The dessert is incredible!! The mousse cake is unbelievable! They also have a lounge on the rooftop of you want to dance but we usually just go to eat. Cannot wait to go back this summer!

Husband takes me for Valentine’s Day. It’s always awesome. The food is delicious. Last time they had someone serenading guests. There was a marriage proposal. It’s always an experience.

The food was delicious and the staff was very attentive. We celebrated a friend’s birthday on February 26 and I know we picked the right venue.

I have to say I drive almost 2 hours at least 2 times a year to eat at Vetro. Last night we had our holiday party there and the food was great and staff went out of their way to make sure everything was what we wanted. Already planning a summer party there.
