The noise level was upsetting. The menu was different from what is on line: e.g. no potatoes au gratin substituted by a very ordinary corn hash. The staff was wonderful.
Great meal and friendly staff! Every time I go I am pleased with the whole experience! The food is fabulous and the menu has so many options. Great night out!
We are finicky diners who are thrilled with this neighborhood gem. Delicious fresh food.
Many choices all perfectly prepared and beautifully plated.
Michael is wonderful and we seem to see Chris our waitperson often. He's fabulous. The ambiance is lovely and the food is delicious. Perfect for pre or post Jacob Burns and it is a favorite of ours.
outstanding choice for Hudson Valley Restaurant Week, starting with fantastic Truffle Mac the pork chop was amazing, as was my wife's salmon. And the bread pudding was perfect.
The food is excellent and the service was great
A great place for a special catch up dinner with old friends. Service was very attentive and food was delicious.
Great dining experience. I would recommend to anyone. The owners and staff are excellent. The food exquisite.
Tuna tartare was excellent
Bronzino was good but nothing special good service and very comfortable place we had a 5:30 reservation and although the dining room was busy by the time we were finished we were never hurried or made to feel uncomfortable
Will definitely go again
The place was hopping on a Sunday night. Sat at the bar and had great service and attention from Katy and Joanne. Always a pleasure and always a great meal. Osso Buco special was delicious.
Vela kitchen has a great menu and great ambiance. Perfect place to meet friends -
Vela’s Kitchen is consistently good! We enjoyed a fantastic dinner and were never rushed out!
Vela Kitchen is one of my favorite restaurants in Westchester. It has fantastic food -- fresh, flavorful, generous portions. Every dish I've had there has been great. The tuna tartare appetizer is amazing, as is their fish and pasta dishes. It also has great atmosphere, and lovely servers. Perfect for pre-movie appetizers and drinks or a date night.
The food is creative and delicious. The service is excellent
Food was excellent, service was very nice
Didn't love the music
Will def come again
Their mussels are always soooo good.
Really great date night dinner
Very nice dining experience. I will certainly eat there again.
The food was good. They didn’t seem extremely busy, but our service was on the slow side.
The food's great, the service is top-notch, but for $10 a glass you should get more wine than the stingy portion they give you.
The food is consistently delicious. All 5 of us cleaned our plates. We always do.
Food was great all the way around the table. From cocktails to the Sidecar named Desire to cauliflower fritters to the daily special, food was beautifully presented and tasted great. A keeprt
Vella Kitchen has very high quality food served with care and creativity. You will find the owner and staff very welcoming and professional. Enjoy.
Very broad menu of excellently prepared apps, mains and salads. Wonderful find for theatre goers and locals.
Very nice place with good food and reasonable prices. Great for after movie!
What a pleasant surprise - how come no one told me about this! The atmosphere is lovely, the staff couldn’t have been nicer and the food was superb. The menu was interesting with nice twists that made the dishes excellent. Presentation was elegant without being pretentious. Beet salad sitting on a ring of creamy goat cheese, petite dollop of wasabi, delish seared tuna on a ring of rice with savory mushrooms. Hard to do it justice - really good & we will be back.
We really enjoyed our meal. Tuna Tartare, Flank Steak and a great salad with grilled shrimp, Everything was presented beautifully. The one thing I think thy can improve is the bread they serve. But Vela is a great choice.
Very surprised to be brought 2 glasses of champagne for my husband and my anniversary! Thank you!
Hi, this was our third time dining at your restaurant. Our first visit was just the 2 of us. The second and third time we booked for 4, 2 couples. Our first two times were really great. This time, I felt disappointed as did the other couple we were with. My duck dish was fatty and the sauce less tasteful than the first two visits with you. My wife’s branzino was dry and tasteless. We asked for sauce on the side and fish came with no sauce. Waitress brought later on. The other couple had a pork chop and pasta dishes. Pasta dish was bland and pork chop was ok, nothing special. We were just there this past Sunday. Maybe Sunday’s aren’t the best time to dine with you?
Consistently good food and great service. Brought my husband for the first time. He doesn’t usually enjoy eating out, but he was quite happy with the food and very attentive service. Finally, a really good restaurant in Pleasantville, reasonably priced and with well prepared, delicious food.
Good food, good service. First time there. We will go back!
A wonderful place to enjoy dinner with a friend. From the cauliflower fritters to the ricotta kisses, the meal and the service were incredible! Will be back soon.
This is a place that really has its act together. Executive chef Velazquez has established a menu that is interesting, without being silly. The portions are ample and well flavored. The shrimp dumplings are an unlikely mix, but they work. The short ribs fell apart with the touch of a fork. Flavor was full-bodied. Wine pours are honest.
As always a delicious dinner. Service excellent - everyone always so pleasant! My only complaint would be noise level. When room is full can be quite noisy.
Met my date at Vela Kitchen before catching a movie at Jacob Burns. Had a glass of wine and appetizers - the cauliflower fritters and the jalapeño lobster sliders. Wonderful! It was cozy enough for a date but had a upbeat vibe.
Perfect for going to movie, delicious and interesting selections, quality ingredients, great service. Lovely and quiet for conversation.
This has become my favorite restaurant in Westchester. Menu is interesting, creative and varied. Food is consistently wonderful - service is just right...attentive, w/o being overbearing...friendly, warm staff. (they even remember to turn the music down a bit when we come in, w a smile, no less.
Excellent server: Benjamin
Excellent choices for Veggies (like me)
(Two non-veggies even gotcand enjoyed veggie sliders!) (Suggest asking for them to be cooked a little more)
Ricotta benguets (spelling) (with chocolate syrupband whipped cream in the side) - delicious.
Nice Cab wine by the glass!
The food was good. A nearby table was very noisy. The room we were in didn’t have any acoustic deadening and thus very noisy.
