    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 7 days agoHello, 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.

    The fish special was good but not worth $39….the wait staff did not have something as simple as fresh cracked pepper. Pasta dish was bland and watered down sauce was not appetizing. Would not return though it was not horrible. Food and service was much better 2 years ago.

    Food was excellent. Had shrimp ceviche app and shrimp with crab sauce ravioli. Husband had branzino and son had shrimp and pasta. Olive oil and bread served for table were delicious. Love BYO. sat inside - an update on interior would help this restaurant for ambience. But overall - terrific dinner.

    We all enjoyed our dinner! Progressive, upscale menu with enjoyable old school live music…. We sat outdoors to listen to the singer crooning oldies but goodies…. Sinatra and the like. Our 24 year old daughter is bringing her friends back for a special dinner. Best food we have had down the shore this year!

    Everything was delicious. I have celiac and don’t eat meat so I didn’t have as many choices as my husband did; however, I had the salmon and it was amazing! I had the burrata special for an appetizer and it was good. It probably would have been better if I could have had it with the crispy onions. My husband really enjoyed his meal, the lobster ravioli with shrimp. All in all, a great meal. We eat brunch here almost every weekend but first time for dinner and would definitely come back. Service was great and an enjoyable evening.

    We had a pleasant night eating outside at Velo Cafe. Food and service was excellent. We hadn’t been there since last summer and it appears prices have gone up significantly. They should add more pasta choices, only had two on the menu. However, since it’s a BYO, that helps offset the higher prices.

    Have been here many times for brunch so tried dinner. The best parts of the meal were the mussels appetizer in red sauce (wish this had been my entree) and the shrimp in endive ceviche. My husband and I both had the samurai salmon. The salmon itself was fair but the rice and greens were soupy and added nothing to the plate. Maybe it was an off night. Will try dinner again but not the salmon.

    Overall we had a good experience but we expected a bit more. Being BOYB is a great thing but it tends to lead to very high entree prices , which makes sense! The service was great. Sweet younger workers but very attentive. The atmosphere could use some work to fit the vibe they are going for, which has been mentioned in other reviews. The food was good, but not what we were expecting for $40 entrees. We enjoyed the octopus but it was on the saltier side so I could only handle a bit of it. My husband got the samurai salmon and enjoyed it. I got angel hair pasta with crab meat which was good but some sort of veggie or white wine would have made it more balanced for sure! Overall we would go back to try their brunch!
