Diner Reviews
  • "The menu had a nice selection and the items we ordered, fish, filet and bolognese, along with the mushroom flatbread and a salad, were all tasty and well presented. Unfortunately we could not hear our friends who were seated across the table from us. If they could find a way to cut the noise level, we would certainly go back."

  • "I have dined here twice and both were great experiences. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Food is superb although the portions are a tad small. I will definitely go back here soon."

  • "We have enjoyed every visit to V's. Service is great and food is very good - offering a nice variety. Corkage at $20 is very fair enabling us to share a special bottle of wine."

  • "The warm and courteous staff immediately begin to offset the stresses of the day. Your favorite cocktail is in your hand almost upon requesting it. The food options are straightforward Italian with only the freshest, locally grown ingredients. Although the venue is new, the owner and his staff have been the favorites of the Malibu locals for a generation."

  • "Owner gracious and accommodating. Food is fabulous, a great mix of italian and french with a modern twist. Entrees generous enough to share. Mixed drinks clever and delicious. Service was attentive but not obtrusive, high staff ratio to table. Pricing reasonable. Setting modern, sophisticated, and sustainable, just the right balance of almost casual and special."

  • "First time at V. Pretty restaurant, tiny entrance with hostess desk right when you walk in the door. There is no where to stand when you are waiting. The owner never smiled, too serious. He seemed up tight. I never saw him approach tables to say hello.......our waitress warmed up after awhile. I don't know why staff isn't friendlier. Food good. The swordfish over spinach was delicious. We would go back bc of the food but didn't feel like we were welcomed."

  • "We loved our dinner here with friends. I was looking for a lovely place near water to take some out of town friends, and V's was wonderful. Friendly/personal service: although I was late for the reservation, I was told in a very friendly voice by phone not to worry, and still seated at a quieter table, which was requested. Every single bite was delicious. The wine list was nice, although we brought our own this time. High recommendation."

  • "I have a good nose to chose the right place to dine and it worked. Everything at Vassil's (owner) is 'quality'. The elegant design of the restaurant is yet warm and very comfortable. The service is set to the highest standards yet very kind. The food and wine is delicacy and surprisingly affordable. I was then not surprised to note that V's is were Malibu locals like to dine."

  • "The service was very poor.After 20 min of being ignored after being seated, the waiter finally came after I waived him over for drinks,15 min later he apologized for the delay - the bar was backed up.Then the drinks were made incorrectly.I ordered the salmon - which the waiter said was their post popular dish.The Kale salad was terrific-fresh.We all got our salads - they forgot the order of soup for my husband which came midway through our salads.Finally the entrees - The salmon was a decent portion- but smelled fishy and was dry and seemed unfresh- it was served with black rice that had no flavor and spinach that was also bland.The waiter brought the bill w/o asking if we wanted coffee or desert.Not sure if we will go back sadly."

  • "We had a great dinner; the service is excellent and the menu is very inviting with choices for everyone. When you make your reservation, be sure to request to be seated either in the main part of the dining room or on a warm night, outside. Some of the tables are positioned in the corner where it's a bit "claustrophobic" feeling...other than that, I can't wait to go back!"

  • "First time eating at V's in Malibu. Arrived on time, 7:30 Saturday night. Place was full, but we were seated promptly. Very good service attention. Very interesting appetizers and presentation. The Kale salad, and the smoked trout salad were both excellent. Our group ordered pastas, all of which were served nice and hot, and were very flavorful. Great bottle of wine, reasonably priced. excellent chocolate croissant bread pudding and cappuccino for desert completed a wonderful dining experience. Place did get a little loud near the end of our visit, but that means folks were enjoying themselves. Compared to some of the more pricey and romantic water view places in Malibu, this was a very nice gem. A great change of pace, we will return"

The turkey panini was amazing with the goat cheese! You must try the creme brulee. I love it! It was rich of ingredients and the taste was magnificent. I spent very quality time with my friend over there. I definitely will return to the Vs restaurant to try more dishes and enjoy the ocean view!"

  • "What could be better than the fusion of Guidos and Terra! Vassil is so friendly and welcoming to all his patrons. He is there to make sure all of his customers are happy. Chris Bocchino's creations are delicious! Kristine, his wife makes amazing desserts! What I love about this place is that it has a friendly staff, delicious food, great drinks and local Malibulites. I would highly recommend this restaurant for anyone who loves good food and nice people!"

  • "Nice place to visit but I was not crazy about the Mac&Cheese with Steak combo so I had them remove the Mac&Cheese with veggies. They were out of two of the three deserts I ordered that evening. Other than that it was a nice atmosphere and I would visit there again. Hopefully they improve the sophistication of the menu selection."

  • "Lovely new spot in a former restaurant space. The decor and lighting are very appealing, and there's a beautiful wall of wine as you walk into the main dining area. Two of us shared the kale/quinoa salad, meatball snack, and mushroom flatbread, along with some Albarino wine. Everything was delicious and it made a nice light meal. Service was very good too - attentive and well-timed. We will return to V's to try more dishes, and I'll recommend it to others."

  • "V's is a great addition to a community which suffers from few choices to dine, let alone being good. The food is delicious, well thought out and served hot. All freshly prepared to order so don't be in a hurry to dine. The ambiance is relaxed and the decor is hip and relaxed. Always great drinks from the bar. The wait and bus staff are friendly and most are well known to the locals. Love the seasonal menu so you never get bored. Kristine is an excellent pastry chef and her treats are worth the calories. Great Malibu find!"
