Reviews for VELE

Atmosphere gets a star, it's a beautiful place. However, our service was incredibly slow. It took 10 minutes to get our drink. Server forgot to put in the other drink we ordered. Told us a drink was made a certain way and then it wasn't. Bread took 20-25 minutes to come out. I tried to order grilled vegetables and the chef said he didn't have any vegetables. I asked if I could get a side of broc or asparagus and they said no, they have no vegetables. No soup. full review
I visited VELE twice while in town for business, and both times it has been hands-down fantastic. The food is superb, and unique, a good selection, proteins were always cooked perfectly, etc. Both times I ordered a Negroni cocktail, which was made well. Also both times I ordered the "Olive Oil Tasting," which consists of a fresh-baked 1/2-loaf of Italian bread, three infused olive oils, and one artisan balsamic vinegar. It was hard not to eat the whole thing and fill up on bread! full review

This is by far the best restaurant of Springfield in my opinion. Their food is good, service is good, menu is good. Oh have Mentioned about their Desserts? They are out of the world. Do try their grilled octopus, I lovedd it! Overall, You will leave happy and satisfied in tummy when you get out of the restaurant.
