    Great things come in small packages as they say... and this is true. This restaurant's dining area maybe quaint but the food and service are huge! So much fun whether you are with a large group or dinner for two they can accommodate. I would not recommend small children unless they can sit down and behave. Excellent all the way around, food, service, wine list and atmosphere. Awesome martinis too!

    No hostess when we arrived. When one appeared and was assisting us a male host appeared and said we couldn't have the table she was going to give us. She didn't know why. He was rather off putting - he said they don't have a reservation. I said that we did in fact have a reservation. We settled on a different table just to end the confusion. My filet was tender but the sides were very bland and appeared to have no seasoning. My husbands lamb was a little gamey. Dessert, the bread pudding, was great. Our server was not very experienced but tried very hard to do a good job. If we were back in Murphy's we would try it again.

    Under-staffed. Out of many menu items. Long wait for bevs & food. No recognition of special b-day dinner. Meats tough and cold. Would like to say something positive, but the only great part of the evening was sharing the time with our friends and a nice bottle of wine.

    Well...our reservation was at 6 PM. The concert started at 7:30. The town was packed full of people when we arrived at 5:45. Things could have gone south very quickly. A lot of people in a hurry and a restaurant crew being baptized by fire. I've always learned in these situations the worst thing to do is rush. 75 people got seated all at once to drink and eat. Relax, everything is going to work out. It did for us anyway. Apparently no one else took our approach. The service was EXCELLENT. The kitchen was slammed and we probably were the last table served, but what a lovely place. We both has a Cocomargatini..Cajun Salmon, Roast Chicken some wine....and there was plenty of time to get to the concert. Special thanks to our waitress. Awesome

    Came in for dinner and then onto a concert at Ironstone Winery. Everything very good considering there was lots of people and a higher noise level because of the concert crowd. We will definitely eat there again, just not on an evening when there is a big event in town. Staff did very well handling the overflow of people.

    After a 1 hour wait we had to leave to get to our concert on time and dinner never arrived. They must have lost our ticket in the kitchen. Didn't seem to be a sense of urgency to find out what was going on as others around us who had arrived after us were served before us. They did comp a couple glasses of happy hour wine but still charged us for the appetizers.

    It is a lovely little restaurant, and we enjoyed the cool interior on a hot night. Mark was a wonderful host and very accomodating. The Salmon was great, the duck was nice, but the carbonara and avocado salad with crab and shrimp were lacking in quality. The strawberry /rhubarb pie was super and the fried olives were fab.

    I had originally chosen this restaurant on a whim but I will very purposely choose it again in the future. Although the atmosphere and service was commendable, what really sold me and my girlfriend was the food. V's combination of high class cuisine and comfort food was so phenomenal, we were both in agreement that it was some of the best food we have ever had. It's a bit on the pricey side but it is well worth it. P.S. Save room for dessert! You won't regret it!

    Dined at V this weekend with my wife and another couple. I had the duck which was decent, my wife had the fillet which wildly over cooked, our friends had the chicken and a pasta dish that were both nothing spectacular. The service was very good and the host very accommodating. The local wines were great as is the location.

    We had a great time at V bistro and look forward to returning. The Parmesan truffle fries were amazing! I'm still dreaming about them. We also loved the margerita flatbread and the ahi tuna tacos. I thought the tortillas could've been warmed or browned a bit, they looked and tasted straight out of a package but overall everything was awesome! Great fun atmosphere and live music!

    We were celebrating my husband's birthday and had notified the restaurant. Our waitress was great and was very apologetic that the fresh fish of the day was not available. We both had ordered it and it was only 7:00! Menu is limited so my husband ordered the ribeye steak and caesar salad. He steak was tasty but it came with fries and no veggie. His caesar salad was okay, not very flavorful. We have had many caesar salads and this one was not good. My scallops were delicious. Lava cake was yummy. Service is slow by we didn't mind because we were there for the evening.

    The Chef is a rookie when it comes to timing. The first round - panko encrusted halibut was way over cooked. The second round - a replacement meal of mussels included a well prepared sauce and properly cooked shellfish with undercooked pasta. The service staff is accommodating. No amount of ambience and service can make up for poorly prepared food.

    Dined on 3/28/2014
    When I ordered the braised lamb, the waitress said I wouldn't even need a knife to cut it. When I received it, the lamb was cold and did require cutting with a knife. I did send it back. The next plate was not much better. Cool, dry and not fork tender; definitely not what you'd expect from braised meat. My wife had the scallops. They were cooked properly but were barely warm. The large plate was cool to the touch. Maybe the plates should be warmed so they don't wick the heat away from the delicate dish. I hope they took the lamb off the menu before serving it to others.

They really care about their customers. And did not mind cleaning our table twice. Curtains, banners, flags etc... Help noise levels.

    This restaurant looked great on the usual online sources and has a good reputation, so we tried it. The food was inconsistent at best, certainly not what I would expect for a place with this reputation (and price). The scallops were overcooked, and our steak frites arrived cold. On the other hand, bacon-wrapped dates were divine, and the fish and pasta specials were wonderful. Staff were friendly and attentive. Bottom line: Overpriced. Order the specials.

    The food has generally been good and is presented well. V's is a little more upscale in its food choices and preparation for this area and make's it an especially good place for special occasions. Over the years we have been pleased with the food and its quality. This visit there were four of us and unfortunately my dinner was not up to par. I ordered the scallops and should have considered that our visit was midweek after the restaurant had been closed for two days, the scallops were not fresh and had an off taste to them. While we had a very pleasant evening, it was made especially nice by our waitress who was outstanding. The other issue was the chatter coming from the kitchen while we dined.

    Ambience was great! Service was not great, typical of Murphys though. No vegetarian option for entree at all. Wanted us to leave the restaurant and go next door to get a vegetarian option even though food comes from same kitchen. Told us it was a separate kitchen but eating next door next night confirmed this was not true. Would recommend it to my non-vegetarian friends but not to vegetarians. We stayed because it was our special occasion and loved the atmosphere.

    We booked the lunch, came to the place - and learnt that there was no lunch in the restaurant. Only in the bar! which was overcrowded inside and out. Ruth saved us - she honored our reservation, and took us to the empty restaurant (next door) . We had great food (flatbread with wild mushrooms, caesar salad, tea), a fresh rose on the table and very quiet environment. Thanks to Ruth!

    We have eaten at V Restaurant before but in January we were not as impressed. We brought our own wine and the server didn't even once pour it for us. It took her 20 minutes to take our order and a full hour before we were served dinner...not once did she apologize for the delay...if we had been really hungry we would have been pretty upset...no bread was served before the meal. I think they were probably understaffed.

  • Best Christmas Eve Dinner Ever
    Nikki
    Dined on 12/24/2013
    We had the 4 course Christmas Eve meal (soup, salad, prime rib, and dessert). Every course was truly delicious -- tender and tasty prime rib and the Caesar Salad was so good even my teenage son who doesn't like salads ate all of his. Since my kids didn't want the bread pudding dessert (which I enjoyed) they brought them the housemade ice cream which was creamy and delicious. All four of us left very full and pleased. It was our second year going there for Christmas Eve dinner and we will be back.

    My wife and I ate dinner here while visiting Murhpy's. The food, service and bartender were outstanding. We had reservations at 7:30 on a Friday. The table was not quite ready when we got there. The hostess apologized and sat us at the bar for a drink. The bartender made our drinks to perfection; Lemon Drop & Margarita on the rocks. We were wined out after touring the Main St. wineries that day. We got seated shortly after our drinks were ready. Our server was very courteous and attentive throughout dinner. We each ordered specials; Filet Mignon tips stuffed Cannelloni & Escolar (substitute for the Halibut they were out of). We could have split a salad, they were pretty big. We highly recommend dining here for couples night out.

    Awesome meal, perfectly prepared, but service was ridiculously slow. 3 hours for a glass of wine,an entree and one dessert. Server was very apologetic but it really detracted from the meal, esp when neighboring diners came....and went. If you can deal with the time between courses, I'd recommend it for the food alone, but prepare yourself!
