  • "Drove down from Santa Barbara to meet family from Santa Monica and ate at "V's" for the first time. We are so happy we found this restaurant on the internet. The owner and staff are very personable. The decor is very pleasing and tasteful. The food could not be better. Great dish selection and presentation. The service was perfect. My only disappointment is that we live so far away from this excellent gem."

  • "my husband and I enjoyed the last evening of the DINE LA week... he had the chopped salad which was delicious; the Salmon, and we both shared gelato. I had the Tagliatelle with heirloom tomatoes, and I thought it was outstanding."

  • "Another DineLA find. I really enjoyed the chicken and the salads were good too! Lots of fun cocktails and that great Malibu breeze. Not sure if the prices would have been worth it with out the DineLA menu but we'll certainly keep it in mind for future outings. Oh and the manager was very helpful and walked the floor keeping an eye on his guests. Was a good experience."

  • "We went to the restaurant for the first time. The interior is very nice and comfortable, the food was delicious and the service was excellent. However!! The noise level is uncomfortable. We were 6 people, seated closely together and still had a hard time hearing each other... We are not an older group, btw. Bottom line, I would recommend this place, but I would highly caution about the noise level. Better to go off hours when less crowded. Perhaps the restaurant could install acoustical tile on the ceiling to lower the sound...."

  • "This little gem on the PCH in Malibu is a great place for couples or small groups to enjoy modern American cuisine. The ambience is modern elegant American meets seaside chic. The crowd is on the mature side, the service is attentive and professional, but somehow this places manages to casual and not stuffy. Share a delicious flatbread as a starter. The heirloom tomato is delicious. The main courses are familiar American comfort classics prepared in a modern way. I really enjoyed the roasted chicken served on a bed of mashed potatoes and Brussel sprouts. The mash potatoes have a lemon zest and a light chicken jus. My husband ordered a delicious homemade pasta. But I look forward to trying the filet the next time we go."

  • "I was in a mood to eat something special. UI am glad We picked this lovely place! The menu is full of extraordinary jewels, and it is hard to make a choice. I choose meat ball as an appetizer, and after seeing the portion ended up canceling the main course. I will have to go back!! which I gladly will! My partners seared tuna was done perfect as was the fantastic beef rib dinner! I indulged in a wonderful bread pudding with Greek yogurt, vanilla and Meyers lemons. Yummy!!! Service was excellent, prompt, pleasant, happy, knowledgably."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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"

  • "I love the decoration and the atmosphere of this place. The food is very delicious, The service was excellent, accurate and very friendly. The prices are affordable. 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!"

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!"
