    V's was recommended by locals and they did not lie. One of the best meals I have had. Clean, organic, beautifully prepared and presented. Great wait staff. I had the pan-roasted chicken served with grilled Brussels sprouts and mashed potatoes with a hint if lemon (amazing). Husband ordered grilled wild salmon served with rice on puréed green peas. We finished our meal with chilled butterscotch pudding and cookies. If you are in Malibu and you don't have dinner here you will miss a rare opportunity for a gray meal in a lively modern setting. We are on vacation and going again before we leave.

    Cannot stop bragging about this place. Every dinner a wonderful experience, consistently good food, and great service. Favorites are the duck and scallops. Salmon was a delicious bonus, as it gave me faith again in ordering that fish. It was cooked perfectly, seasoned well- I was seriously shocked how good it was. Thank you again V's!! We'll be back very soon.

    Food was very good and staff and owner were very friendly. As this was our first visit to this restaurant, we felt very welcome here. Our only negative note was that the restaurant was extrememly noisy at the time we were there. As the time got a bit later and the crowd diminished, it was more comfortable. Also, the lack of parking and a $5 service charge was problematic. We plan to return again to this restaurant soon.

    Good food and service. First time at the place and I was impressed. Though we only had meatball hor d'oeuvres and margharita pizza, both were excellent. The staff was extremely patient with us, because we were more into talking than eating. And now I'm smitten to boot. All good. But me being smitten has nothing to do with this review.....definitely a great place.

    Every time we go, be it for brunch or dinner, we never walk away unsatisfied. Their sausage pizza and roasted chicken, and deliciously seasoned French fries are our favorites at dinner. Really everything there is great. Brunch pancakes are the absolute best!

    Well, there are a lot of good places to eat in Malibu, but V's is certainly at the top. Very nice ambience, experienced wait staff, not kids, fantastic food, nice wines.... Only negative which is actually a positive is that it is not on the beach. Dining is inside, so you don't get blown away or too hot or cold while eating a nice meal.

    So my wife and I decided to try V's that we drive by all the time. The only negative about this is, we didn't do it sooner...much sooner! Amazing place and the food is outstanding! The New Zealand Sea Bass and the Portobello Mushroom fries are out of this world! Great wine list and cocktails as well. It is now one of our favorite places!

    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.

    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....

  • Modern American Cuisine
    Chinesefoodlover
    Dined on 7/12/2014
    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.

    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.
