Diner Reviews
  • "Vons has the best prime rib in town! We sat down to an excellent wine recommendation, into a beautifully cooked appetizer of muscles. Then both enjoyed the prime rib with the candied sweet potato mash, and finally chocolate cake with pomegranate. Vons always exceeds my expectations with service and food! Cory G is by far one of the best servers I've had in the city."

  • "We went to Von's on Sunday night, with friends, before seeing Wicked at the Jubilee. The waiter asked us what time we needed to leave and made sure we were out on time. The food and service were excellent. We'd have the filet mignon with blue cheese again for sure. We'll definitely go back."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Must have new cook food was fine but over cooked. For the price expect more than over Cooke ontrays and main course even cream brula"

  • "We really loved Von's. The food was amazing. I would definitely eat there again."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "I was expecting a lot based on past experience but I had not been there for a few years. Vons was everything I remembered and more. The service was outstanding, the food outstanding, and the atmosphere excellent. We went to Vons to celebrate a special occasion and were thankful that we chose the right place. An added bonus was that the prices were quite reasonable.We will be back for our next special occasion."

  • "The place itself looks very nice and romantic. But my overall experience was spoiled by the fact that I left the place hungrier than I was before entering it even after spending almost $100 for two. Small portions of food and lack of personell didn't help either."

  • "Unfortunately disappointing. We try many restaurants through open table, but this one did not suit us at all."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "A wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion! The setting is quiet and romantic and encourages conversation as the tables are nicely spaced apart. The menu allows for a variety of taste choices. The prime rib was perfectly prepared and the steak oscar melted in my mouth and was complemented by the seafood atop of it. The ribeye steak was tasty and accompanying French fries were crisp. The wine list is extensive and our server recommended a delicious Malbec that complemented our meals beautifully. We finished our meals with the Tiramisu (delicately liqueur- flavoured and not too sweet) that generously allowed the four of us to enjoy it and not feel over stuffed. Von's is a definite keeper on our restaurant list!"

  • "This is the place we head whenever we want a nice quiet evening and good food and wine. The service is always attentive but unobtrusive, the menu keeps the local favourites, and adds new items to reflect seasonal and local foods. It's always a winner"

    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "I had not been to Von's and always wanted to try it. I am glad I finally did as it was well worth it. We had the coconut shrimp appetizer and the shrimp cocktail. The coconut shrimp were only okay as they were overcooked and positively glued to the skewers making them hard to eat but the shrimp cocktail was outstanding, especially since the sauce is generously flavoured with horseradish. I had the crab dinner of king and snow crab and that was some of the best crab I have ever had. My hubby had the goat cheese filet which I tasted; the steak was very good but the cheese was a bit overpowering. There was just too much of it, which is not something you can say all the time so that was good and bad. I will definitely go back!"
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "I ordered a Rib Eye. It was good, but not much better than just cooking it at home on the BBQ. I expected better for a steakhouse and the price. Expected more tenderness and flavour."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We enjoyed our supper. It was delicious. Our server timed everything nicely as it was not too rushed. The food was hot and tasty. Dessert was a little confusing due to the ice cream but I thank them for not serving refrozen ice cream especially since cappuccino flavored is not one of my favorites so I had an opportunity to try the yoghurt cheesecake in a jar. Thank you for an awesome meal!!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "I ordered a prime rib however a rib eye was delivered!! I told the waiter and he said he will have it exchanged. They dropped my shrimp and had to remake, when my shrimp was delivered it was xtremely raw and mushy on the inside! I almost lost my supper on the table! I do not expect this from Von's. Maybe Denny's!!!! And not even an offer of a discount on the meal!!! Discusted and will not return!"

  • "Von's is an excellent restaurant for any occasion. I came here to treat a lady and was very impressed with the speed and quality of the service as well as the exceptional menu selection. Von's hits incredible right on the dot with the quality of the food and provide a "just right" portion. I will recommend Von's to all my friends and definately make many more visits!"

  • "this was the second time we had been to von's. we had the same waitress both times, and both times the service and the food were both fantastic! I would definitely go back again!:)"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "The fresh oysters were just so fantastic, soft and tender and very fresh. The accompanying sauces also excellent, small dab just to offset the delicious oysters. The beef for main course, was as promised, outstanding. Very tender, cooked a little more than I requested, but no complaint, ate it all, very lovely."

  • "We go to Von's every year for our anniversary and it has never let us down. Everything was perfect as usual and I believe our servers name was Allan and he was exceptional."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "While the variety and quality of food items are fantastic, it is the attentive yet non-intrusive service that makes Von's a regular spot for our special occasions."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "We would consider VON 'S to be the first choice for any special occasion. It was my wife's birthday and the evening was 10 for 10 the server was particular outstanding"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We picked Von's for our wedding anniversary and had AMAZING service but unfortunately had average food. For a $175.00 bill we didn't feel that the quality was there. Their signature "Oscar" dish was nothing I would want to have again I found it to be quite bland, my husbands 17 oz steak was large but lacking in flavor and needed the au jus to give flavor. Don't think we will be returning."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Made reservations and asked for a quiet table and ended up by the entrance and where the kitchen was. The server did not have time for us and we were left alone for long time periods. The food would be a 5 out of 10. The Keg is way better for bacon wrapped scallops and prime rib. We probably will not come back."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Other than a large group that left part way through our meal the noise level was hushed conversational. The atmosphere and setting with lots of space between tables makes for a romantic evening. It was our 17th wedding anniversary and they provided us with a complimentary dessert, which they knew about since I filled in the special occasion section on the Open Table ap. Over all a great night out, but be prepared to part with a bill that has a picture of Sir Robert Borden on it at the minimum. "

  • "My boy friend and I had decided to try this resturant for the fresh oysters , they where delicious ! We also enjoyed steaks and crab , everything was amazing , very romantic setting , how ever next time we will try the lounge side :) nothing bad to say about this resturant either , great service !"

  • "I had a director visiting from Belgium and we had a business meeting so I though that Von's would be a good choice. The food was nice but the staff were not very friendly. There was one waitress for the whole restaurant and she was not very concerned with our experience. It seemed as if we were more of a nuisance. When it came time to pay our bill $275.00 for dinner for three; she handed the debit machine to me and walked away for fifteen minutes. It seemed strange to say the least and I was surprised by the poor service from Von's. Maybe they can visit Belgium; I had a much better experience there with my Director."

  • "Great food, great service, overall awesome place. Just wish that their buck-a-shuck didn't have restrictions on mix and matching oyster types. "

  • "Our experience at Vons was a great one. We were trying Oysters raw for the first time and the waiter was great at recommending ones that were perfect. The service was a bit slow but the food more than made up for it. "

  • "We have dinned at this resturant for the past 9 years for our anniversary. We have never been disappointed in the service or the food. Now I can order a bottel of wine and if we dont finish it we are able to bring it home. Wonderful service addition. "
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "Overall we were very impressed by Vons. We went here for our anniversary and had a great experience. The food was amazing. We fell in love with the oysters. (I had never tried one so the helpful waiter helped me pick from their extensive selection) We were also thoroughly impressed with the steak which was cooked to perfection. The ambience was just what we were looking for in the dining room. It was softly lit and quiet which was very conducive to a romantic evening. Our only complaint was that buck a shuck was not available in the dining room. It is only available in the lounge or patio. Therefore we ended up spending 3 times as much on oysters because of where we were seated in the restaurant. :("

  • "We went for Mother's Day Brunch and came away feeling disappointed. The brunch selection wasn't great and the food quality was lacking. The hot food was cold, for the most part. The eggs were bland and the roast beef was really quite chewy. It was reminiscent of a cheap hotel buffet. I was expecting more for the price ($40 per adult, $20 per child). Service was really good, though. I don't think we'll be back anytime soon."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We usually head to Von's for special occasion dinners, usually around four times per year. Dinner is usually fantastic. Mother's Day brunch was quite the diasppointment. None of us could eat the prime rib, it was incredibly tough. Generic single servings of pancake syrup. Dry desserts. The seafood offered was fresh, but the serving dish was pratically empty during our one and a half hour stay. Our server was excellent and the staff friendly. We'll pass on any future brunch events at Von's. But one disappointing brunch at Von's won't be enough to keep us away from the dinner menu. We look forward to dinner at Von's in the future. "

It was fresh and very tasty. The price was very good as well. The service was very good too. Everyone was friendly and welcoming. We will be back!"

  • "My girlfriend and I went to Von's to celebrate our anniversary this weekend and we left w/ mixed feelings. The food was amazing, we both loved the atmosphere, however, the service was lacking. Our waiter Tyson seemed very energetic and personable at first greeting but after taking our orders it was like he checked out. He said he would bring us a breadbasket while we waited on our appetizer but it never came, in fact Tyson didn't return to check on us until after we were well into our entrees. No more water was served and we weren't asked if we wanted more wine until that time either. My girlfriend really wanted to see a dessert menu but Tyson again disappeared. We were headed to the movies next so we thought it best just to grab the check."

  • "Great experience! Food quality was very good. If I were to critique anything , maybe the salad was too heavily dressed, and the wine is a little pricey. Otherwise a fantastic experience. Menu doesn't seem to be the most economical in town, but not outrageous and very much in line when you consider the quality of food you get, and it all tastes amazing from the first bite to the last. Awesome table side service. Staff was unbelievably quick and friendly and catered to every whim. A really great experience. "
