Diner Reviews
  • "Service is friendly and dependable. The food is just great. I had lasagna with meat sauce and mushrooms, and it was wonderful. Husband had fried chicken, and we traded a little lasagna for chicken, and it was some of the best fried chicken I have ever tasted."

  • "Excellent food and a great family atmosphere. My friends and I eat there often. The service is always great. There was a newborn (two week old) and little girl 3-4 in a Disney Princess dress in the next booth. The staff was wonderful to them and their family. I don't think I have ever been in a restaurant who was so attentive and it was wonderful to see! Kudos to all!"

  • "We enjoyed a wonderful Sunday brunch. The pasta bar is amazing! The Eggs Bendict is the best I've ever eaten (and I'm not normally a fan of the dish). The pecan pie on the dessert table was delicious also. I will definitely be going back!"

  • "We handed our free birthday dinner coupon to our server when we were ordering. She said she would take it at the end of the meal. We asked about the free appetizers. We ordered one. At the end of the meal we were charged for the appetizer. At first our server apologized and said it had been a mistake. When she came back she said it was not a mistake that because we had the birthday coupon we could not have the free appetizer. Really? Then why didn't she explain that in the beginning. WE WOULD NOT HAVE ORDERED AN APPETIZER!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

  • "I hadn't been to V's in several years but I was absolutely impressed again! This is one restaurant I can say is always consistent. We made reservations at 7:30 and the place was packed but the service was great and the food was awesome! We even decided to have our rehearsal dinner there in October. Very happy with the evening and will be back!"

  • "My husband and I eat at V's several times a year and usually have a good experience. However, our waitress had pretty bad body odor - something we have complained about before regarding this same waitress. She was so busy and distracted she did not bring our drinks for 20 minutes. My husband asked for white sauce with his Veal Parmesan - it came with half red & half white. When we were seated we showed her our Internet coupon, but the discount was not on the ticket she brought. After waiting 15 minutes for a correction, we had to ask for a final detailed receipt - another long wait. We had a reservation, but watched 2 couples without seated before us. REALLY??? Your staff needs additional training!"

  • "Some dishes are better than average, but others are mediocre at best. Nice people, but the service is spotty. Good choice for an occasional "good" Italian meal."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "I chose V's because it is close to home and we've never been there before. For special occasions, I prefer to dine somewhere out of the ordinary, and V's certainly filled the bill. It's a little pricy, but not extreme. Ambiance is wonderful! Wait staff was friendly and prompt."
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "ALWAYS CONSISTENTLY DELICIOUS, ENJOYABLE, CLEAN, FRIENDLY AND EFFICIENT SERVICE; ALWAYS QUIETLY SUPERVISED BY FAMILY MEMBERS AND LONG TIME EMPLOYEES. V's many years of being in business, under the leadership of the same family and location, say it all! While the main dining room is more energetic, a separate room with booths only, provides a quieter, more private atmosphere. The Pasta Buffet is filled with delicious choices, the Sunday Brunch is not to be missed and Pizza is unique and wonderful! Gluten Free Options, including Pasta and Pizza, are available. Support and enjoy this local treasure!"

  • "We come here every now and again for the friendly family atmosphere good food and attention to detail on special occasion s3. Like Saturday I asked my girlfriend to marry me she was overjoyed and thanks in part to the staf and how they helped my set it up. I needed help and got it tenfold I am so thankful. Our names will also be engraved on the wall I will be forever gratefull."

  • "The manager Chris was very rude when the waiter sent him to my table. When I was trying to make a point he kept interrupting me and basically told me not to come back. I have never been treated so rudely. We were charged for something that we never received, and he didnt remove the charges. I don't know if I will be going back to this restaurant again."

  • "Our family met here for a brunch and everyone enjoyed it. The two children were 6 & 7 and there was plenty of food to their liking. Everything was nice and warm and one thing that stood out to me was that they kept their dinner plates nice and warm, which helps the food to stay warmer longer. Overall, I would say it is better than a couple of brunches we have been to lately. One at the Light District in Kansas City and one on the square in Independence, MO. The entrées were much warmer and the pasta bar was unique. They made the pasta entrées the way you wanted them. We all had fun and felt very relaxed and not rushed. "

  • "We found this restaurant because we were staying nearby for the weekend. We had such a great meal and were treated so well on Friday night that we hanged our plans a bit so we could do the brunch on Sunday. On both occasions both the food and the service were phenomenal. there a lot of choices and our server was very helpful with suggestions. The next time we are in the Kansas City area we are going to make it a point to go to this re4staurant. It was the highlight of the trip. "

  • "We meet with another couple for dinner at least a couple of times a month. V's is usually our choice. We have been coming to V's for over 40 years and we love everything about it. Now that we are on Social Security, the early board specials really help our budget. "

  • "This was our first time here and we were celebrating our anniversary. It will be last time. The food was flavorless and very bland. The calamari appetizer lacked any spices in the breading and the sauce was watery and tasteless. I ordered the Lemonata and it was just plain gross. It was two overcooked, no flavor, pieces of chicken with a white sauce that looked and tasted like wallpaper paste. It was most disgusting looking when it was placed in front of me. The side of spaghetti was cold and watery. We also ordered the veal parm and it was like a big ground meat patty, again with little or no spices. The side of spaghetti was at least warm but very watery. The bread was edible. The rum cake dessert was good. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Serving sizes a little small. We didn't leave hungry, and we didn't leave so stuffed we couldn't walk, but more than 6 ravioli's and leftovers to take home would have been nice. We are considering going there for brunch soon, so we will be back!"

  • " Although we have eaten at V's before, this was the first time we had brunch there. It lived up to its reputation of great food, excellent service and pleasant ambience, although it was very busy. Our server was prompt, attentive, kept our champagne glasses filled, and the food was well worth the price. The buffet had a nice variety of breakfast and lunch items, including a carving station and a fruit and dessert bar. I recommend V's for any meal. "

  • "Always enjoyed V's and hadn't been in quite some time. Dinner was fantastic! Husband had the manicotti and I had fettuccine con scampi. Both dishes were reasonably portioned and delicious. Desert was the best part...little ricotta deep fried pasties served warmed. Ricotta donuts, if you will. Best dessert EVER! Natalie was our server and she was the best. Just the perfect amount of attention, personable, friendly and quick. We plan to try brunch very soon! "

  • "We brought our son and his family (including our granddaughter) to V's last Sunday. Jeff and Kaytee loved the food and atmosphere and said they'd like to come again. Addie, our granddaughter, was captivated by the gentleman making the special pasta dishes. That alone made our day! We come to V's as much as we can for special occasions and for other reasons. It is one of our favorite dining spots. We're so glad you're in the neighborhood providing a quality place to bring family and friends for a wonderful meal and an excellent dining experience. Thanks!"

  • "Everything was terrific about our night...our waitress could have been a little more attentive considering she only had two tables. The food was fantastic, including the dessert. Good lighting and we were sitting near a man and woman who were talking about being married 53 years, 30 more than my wife and I - it was kinda cute. Overall a very fun evening."
