I’m a Vegas local I had friends in town visiting and normally Buddy’s is good! Tonight fell short for me and my guests! The hostess started off to have an attitude. Seated at a table that was resting on my legs and she didn’t seem to care that half the table was resting on my leg not only making the table uneven but making the experience worse for me personally. Our waiter took notice and moved us. The food was good but our steak was cold and long with another entree. Over all buddy’s food is great but service wasn’t great at all!

Our food was delicious. Our waitress was great and the bus guy helping do it all, was our favorite. He was happy, helpful, and living life! Great experience.

Great food. If you are wanting to add a side salad to your meal - get the Cesaer salad - the croutons were heavenly! Definitely save room for dessert - the lobster tail was amazing!

The food was great, I will likely give them another shot, the service, not so much! Very slow. After we finished eating and asked for our check, a group of 4 was seated at the table next to us, ordered, received their food, and finished!!, all in the time it took for our server to bring us our check. I was very disappointed that we waited nearly 45 min for our check.

Loved the food. The salmon and lasagna were amazing. Even tho it was delicious, we left feeling like something was missing. I’m not sure what it was, possibly a bread basket instead of one piece each. Or a dinner salad? I don’t know, being Sicilian I was looking for a little more of the Sunday dinner experience like advertised and being stuffed! It was more like every other dinner on the strip, albeit delicious. Beautiful environment and staff was friendly and attentive.

I made reservations 10 days out and was seated outside the restaurant in the shopping mall in the Venetian. When asked if I could be seated inside, I was told it would be an hour wait. That was unacceptable to our whole party. The service was good but the food was just ok. Nothing made us ooh or awe. My chicken parm was over cooked. The pasta was delicious. Overall, nothing to write home about.

My service rating is fair to good. People seated after us, were eating dinner before us. Our waiter Caleb took our dinner order well after we were done with the appetizers! Very busy, Caleb had 6-7 tables including large party of 6 which were the management team from the Venetian Resort. That table appeared to receive all the attention, not only from our waiter, but from managers of Buddy V’s! The food was very good! With the second round of wine (Maestrelle Super Tuscan) left a large amount of sediment in the glasses.

One of the biggest meal disappointments ever. Service was good but was terribly hampered by a very limited menu. Start to finish: bread was warm and satisfying but the balsamic mixed with the oil was not. Excellent olive oil but no herbs, not even cheese at this point. Our cheese arrived with our cheesey bread. Ordered but no salads are included with entree. I ordered the house specialty mother's Sunday gravy. The gravy was very good, note not amongst the best I've had just very goo, however, the rigatoni was slightly over cooked so it had a store bought box taste. Also you weren't offered a choice of pasta. Very limited menu. The meat portion of the special was extremely disappointing, the beef was very good but literally only 2 bites, the bone was 75% of it, the pork was over cooked and extremely dry, the meatball was fair as was the sausage. Just really disappointing as I I had high expectations and Buddy's did an outstanding job of failing at almost every turn. Canoli and espresso were very good. Some of the best canoli filling since Boston. Like the rest of the whole experience the dessert menu was very underwhelming, no cake boss here, don't expect it. One of my poorest dining experiences ever. Only the canoli filling and the espresso saved it from a 1 star.

Great decor and atmosphere. Our server was very friendly and attentive. Food portions are large, can be shared. Only complaint is the chicken Marsala was Luke warm and not the best flavor. We sent it back. The spaghetti and meatballs reminded me of a chef boyardee consistency which was weird. Ceasar salad was great. Desserts are great. Cannoli’s are very rich so plan to share those. We enjoyed our experience for the most part. $200 for a family of 5

Atmosphere is definitely family friendly and not a lot of private seating so it was hard to have a conversation. The food and drinks were delicious and the hostesses and server were outstanding! I’d definitely go back for a casual dining experience.
