    We were seated at the perfect outdoor table and had the attention of our server immediately. There were two specials but the four of us ordered from the menu. DH enjoyed his octopus appetizer very much. The other couple shared a salad. Two people ordered the Bronzino and they both enjoyed it and noted that the tail curled up after the fish was filleted in the kitchen giving it an attractive look. This dish does not come with any side vegetables and looked a bit lonely on the plate. The chicken was the choice for one person and it had lots of interesting mushrooms and he enjoyed it. I ordered the salmon and it came with rice, scallions and avocado. Don’t forget this is a BYO.

    We have been to Velo Cafe twice and the food and service has always been very good. We sat outside on the sidewalk which was nice on a Sunday evening. The lobster ravioli with jumbo shrimp was excellent as was the salmon entree. Prices seem to have gone up significantly however it’s a byo so that helps keep the overall price reasonable. Would definitely recommend Velo Cafe.

    Delicious entrees. Special was an unusual fish (king clip) which was prepared beautifully. We also had the salmon. Description of the preparation was unique and we were curious to see and taste it. (Options for blackened or broiled are there for those less adventurous.). We were very pleased with the chef’s creativity. We’ll definitely be back.

    Like many restaurants in Ventnor the outside dining is on the sidewalk overlooking Ventnor Ave and a neighborhood side street. Not particularly charming , but it allows you to avoid inside dining which was our goal. The inside decor is lovely and was an option we could have chosen. The food and service were very good. The octopus appetizer was outstanding, and the Cafe salad very good. We ordered Bronzino and lobster ravioli topped with crab meat and jumbo shrimp, both excellent. The main course came out while we were finishing our appetizers, which shouldn’t happen in a high end restaurants. But just a minor blip in an evening of otherwise stellar service. Overall a solid meal and good dining experience that we greatly enjoyed. Not cheap but in today’s inflationary environment fairly priced for gourmet food.

My husband got up n asked the HOSTESS to move us and she asked the owner and he said NO!!! We walked out because there were 8 open tables and they wouldn’t move us!!! Bad business practice!!

    Our young waitress was pleasant but she rarely popped by to check out how we liked our food. The busboy splashed our mussels broth over my pants and shirt but all was forgiven. I enjoyed my king clip fish dish and the bronzino was also good. My daughters tuna and our other daughters steak were both over cooked. Overall, a decent meal but could use a little more creativity. Good for once a season at the shore

    Many rave about Velo's breakfast and brunch. I would recommend that as opposed to dinner. Our appetizers and entrees ranged from never again, fair, to delicious -- but generally over priced. Service was polite but backwards: food before silverware.

    Dishes seem to be more hit and miss recently with the food being average compared to past visits. We sent a vegetable side back as it was not prepared properly twice. It should have been removed from the bill but we try to support our restaurants in these challenging times so we didn't say anything further other than letting the waitress know it seems like the kitchen nuked the already not crispy Brussel sprouts. May return for their great breakfast but not for dinner.

    Velo CafeResponded on 6 August 2022Hello, our apologies for your negative experience It has to be some miscommunication. Our "Brussel Roasted Brussel Sprouts" are not advertised as "Crispy". We've been cooking them the same way, first, we roast them in the oven then the flat top grill finished with balsamic and parmesan cheese. The balsamic glaze and cheese makes them not crispy, and usually, everyone loves them. We would like to refund you! please call us or stop by the restaurant. Thank you.

    The food at the Velo Cafe was excellent! The only issue I had was that the meal seemed rushed. The main course came out before my husband finished his appetizer. The staff was attentive but almost too attentive. We were asked every 5 minutes if we were finished with dishes. Our dinner end up being not much more than an hour. There were 5 of us.
