Time Out — an entertainment and travel website — called a meal at Vetri a "once-in-a-lifetime experience," that's individually tailored to each guest.

 "What can be said about Marc Vetri’s hall-of-fame flagship that hasn’t already been said? Well, at the time of this writing, the national restaurant industry was abuzz with the news that the illustrious chef-restauranteur had sold much of his empire to Urban Outfitters. So there’s that.
