    While I will not say one bad thing about the food here because it was absolutely fantastic - the portions were small and the prices were high. If you are okay with that - the taste was just about worth the buck. However, the menu isn't all that adventurous, so set your expectations to standard. The wine list was quite notable but extremely pricey to the point that I did not even order a glass. Overall a good experience but the price point was set far above my comfort level.

    After a little snafu with one of our salads, that was dripping in oil and had to be returned, we had a near flawless meal. Our respective dishes were both tasty and well executed. By happenstance, we ate at VVV on their scallopini special night and my chicken picata was absolutely delicious. As an added bonus, there was a live jazz duo, who only added to the ambiance and our dining experience.

    The food was delicious, the waiter perfect and the atmosphere was very nice. We had an early dinner so the restaurant was not full which made it much easier to talk. In the ratings, I like the word "energetic" and can appreciate having this type of atmosphere, but when I go to a nice restaurant, I don't want it to be so energetic that I can't carry on a conversation or hear the waiter talk. It was a perfect evening.

    I'm expecting this property to go the way of Nava soon. Friday night and the place was only half full. Food was ok, service was terrible, bill was high. A shame, since every other time I have been to this restaurant was a very pleasant experience. Fond farewell.

    Food & service were really excellent. Hard surfaces throughout result in quite a lot of noise, so don't expect a quiet meal. Temperature was on the cool side; one older women asked to move several times trying to fine a warmer spot. Overall, though a really nice evening.

    Dinner was fantastic in every way. The wait staff was attentive and exceedingly courteous - but friendly and engaged just the right amount. Our server asked about special occasions and schedule yet the meal never felt rushed. She was very well versed in the menu and wine list and made recommendations. The food was delicious, every one in our party of five had a different dish and rated it excellent (3 had seafood, 2 had pasta). The ambience was lovely, live music was starting just as we left. The hostess team was all smiles and even gave us directions to our venue. We did not have dessert, but we will return and I look forward to it!

    First, I would like to mention some positives. Great wine list, generous pour and entrees good for sharing. Negatives...octopus salad was arugula salad with very little octopus on the plate, pasta was overcooked. If you are a real pasta expert, make sure you mention to the waiter that you like yours al dente. Service is good but not top -notch as we had to actually look for our waitress multiple times and our wine and dinner arrived a bit too late.

    The grilled trout was cooked appropriately but needed seasoning. The broccoli was outstanding and the bread was excellent. Creme Brûlée was very good. We were frustrated by one incident though. My dinner companion asked the waiter for an opinion between the lasagne and the veal parm. The waiter enthusiastically recommended the veal. It was good but not great, especially for the high price. A short time later, the table next to us asked the same waiter for his recommendation. We were stunned when the waiter raved about how great the lasagne was - best dish on the menu. How did the lasagne become so awesome in 15 minutes? It didn't reflect well on the waiter or the restaurant's integrity.

    My wife and I visit Veni Vidi Vici occasionally because it is an especially enjoyable restaurant.. The ambiance is delightful, the service unusually attentive and the menu is good. We always find delicious new items. On one occasion, a "vegetarian" soup was accidentally served including a slice of bacon. We received sincere apologies and the charge was deducted from our bill. Other people dining here often have an especially reserved manner which adds to the feeling that this is indeed a select place to dine. The facilities for an entrance that is handicap-friendly are excellent and the valet service is friendly

    The place is hidden but very elegant! We loved the live jazz music. The wine was amazing and it came recommended by one of the hostesses. It went beautifully with the veal scallopini I ordered. The portion size was good ( not too little and not too much). The service was GREAT! I would truly recommend it for a couple's romantic dinner on the town.

Both were excellent. The chef always comes through w/ our special requests. Our guest ordered spicy pasta w/ sausage - he thoroughly enjoyed his food and mentioned it to the waiter. We can always count on great food and service here. Thank you for a great evening.

    That's how V3 was! My husband and I have good hearing but we had to really strain to hear each other. The problem may have been the four large parties in the restaurant but the sound level was deafening. The service was great; my entree (the pasta special) was great. My husband said his zuppa and his tuna entree were great although the tuna entree was rather stingy on the amt. of tuna.

    I ordered something that was not on the menu - pasta with garlic and oil (just had an urge for it and it's my favorite) - when it came it was just a little spicy in bites - turns out the chef added red pepper to it. No problem - they let me pick around the peppers and brought me a whole new dish that was wonderful. And - it was just as good the following evening for dinner.

    Not as good as last time we visited. I ordered fish which was too salty and a very tiny portion (didn't even look like 4 ozs). However, my partner had the pork shank which was very tasty, extremely tender and very nice portion size. Probably would go back even though one meal was disappointing.

    They did it again! A wonderful evening was had by my wife and I. The live music was a treat and added to the already comfortable ambience. She had the agnolotti which is always superb and full of rich earthy flavor. I had the siciliano, a new addition to my ever growing favorites list here. The sword fish was spot on cooked to perfection, and what can I say about the wonderfully savory crust! Out of the park! Our waitress was prompt, and very knowledgable about all the specials. She was attentive but never overbearing which was welcoming. After falling in love with these exellent dishes, it's quite hard to visit and try new dishes. I guess we'll have to come back and give it our best shot LOL!! Thanks again V.V.V.
