The food was your normal Italian cuisine. No bread served with it. I can get just as good at Olive Garden for cheaper, better salad that wasn't over dressed and crisp lettuce. The specialty drink we ordered had too much alcohol and was poorly mixed. For 16 dollars it was not good at all. We didn't even drink half of it. The waiter didn't seam to care that it was barely touched by two people sharing it. I would not recommend going here.

I cannot say enough about Buddy V’s! From start to finish our experience was phenomenal. We were early for our reservation but they seated us almost immediately, with a smile! We were greeted promptly by our waiter, Georgeo. He was super friendly and made the best suggestions for dinner and dessert! The meatballs and garlic cheese toast for appetizers was spot on! For dinner, the lasagna and chicken alfredo were to die for! And let me not forget the hot chocolate and gelato cake was absolutely sinful!! Our food and service was impeccable ! Many people comment this is a tourist trap, but I totally disagree. It was wonderful!

Buddy’s is very loud. The food was mediocre but the drinks are good.
Too loud for the price you pay for eating there.

Of the food I've tried in my week of vacationing, they have had the best food thus far. Very perfectly cooked and tasting food, I would recommend it along with the environment; very clean, very appealing with a nice view on the strip.

My wife and I went to Buddy V’s to support his establishment for Restaurant Week. But we were rushed. Our food was served in perhaps the shortest amount of time we have ever experienced.

Apps and main course were edible. Desert was an embarrassment. We’re from NJ, just like Buddy V. Sorry to say, his restaurant did not represent Jersey too well, at least not on the night we were there.

Loved buddy V’s. It was a go to everytime we come to Vegas but noticed the portions got smaller and they don’t serve the famous focaccia bread at the start of the meal anymore. Definitely one of the reasons we went and now won’t be going back. Disappointing.

We had an exceptional time here, the food was delicious and the staff was so friendly and attentive. We were celebrating a birthday and they suggested we get the trio dessert platter. And it was perfect enough for 6 people. Our waiter georgio was amazing and even sang to my mother in law for her birthday. We had an amazing time, definitely would return!

We used the coupon package from Madame Toussards and it was wonderful! All items offered were standard on the menu and all were top favorites. The polenta croutons on the Caesar salad were fantastic! What a surprise treat! Our service from server Michael was impeccable and we had a wonderful time at dinner. I highly recommend this restaurant for a great meal!
