We had Thanksgiving dinner at Buddy V's. It was fantastic!!! The food was amazing - both off the menu & the special Thanksgiving meal. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. Special requests, extra spoons & plates for desserts, all no problem. The ambience was really nice, and the extra quiet from Covid restrictions (which were taken very seriously and followed consistently) gave us a more personal & relaxed feel. We'll definitely be back!

We really enjoyed our dinner here. The food was amazing. Service was quick and friendly.
The only complaint I have is that it was too cold. It was end of November. We were seated at the table right at the entrance and the front of the restaurant is open and the doors to the outside are just to the right, so all of cold air was hitting us everytime the door opened.

It was okay, food on the salty side. Kids menu quite expensive compared to other restaurants of the same price.
Service was great!

The service was Horrible. They basically rushed us out . Our server ignored my son and his wife being that we were separated due to COVID restrictions. We were placed in separate tables. Our server was inappropriate with my daughter in law and myself. The food was ok. I come every year and I will not go back. I paid 200.00 for my family to have a nice thanksgiving family dinner. It was more like being in a pizza joint. We would have gotten treated better.

The food and wine selection was great! Our waitress was very knowledgeable and helpful with the menu. I just wish we could’ve ordered happy hour specials without sitting at the bar but that seems to be a thing everywhere in Vegas.

We lived our experience at Buddy Vs! Nonna’s meatballs were fabulous! My daughter absolutely loved her lasagna (very large portion) and I had the amazing chicken Marsala. They surprised my daughter with a special birthday dessert. Highly recommend!

I was so THRILLED with our evening I've been waiting to critique...bet you don't see that very often!! I made a reservation on Open Table but showed up early since we were staying at the Palazzo. The hostess took us 20 minutes early and when I asked to be seated with a view if possible she seated us at the window over looking the Strip!! 1st gold star! Then our waitress (2nd gold star!), Joanna, was just superb. Friendly, helpful with our order and wine and just from our conversation she heard that we were locals and unbeknownst to us, gave us an unsolicited 25% discount on our meal!! 3rd gold star...OUR MEAL! expertly seasoned and oh so delicious, Panzanella salad and the Seabass...amazing!

Always been a fan on Buddy, since Cake Boss days. The food was absolutely the BEST.... everything was cooked perfectly and everything was FRESH!

The Desert— let’s just say I’ll be back when they open for some more cheesecake. The best cheesecake I ever had. I wish I was exaggerating.

Highly recommended that if you’re in Vegas you make reservations here and enjoy!!!!

We celebrated our wedding anniversary, the entire experience was delightful & superlative! Our waiter brought us a celebratory champagne 🍾. Their rosemary bread is perfection, we had Buddy’s fav pizza for an appetizer and for dinner spaghetti and meatballs and shrimp scampi. Kudos to the chefs!
