Everything was great until a party of 6 or 7 was seated next to us. They already appeared to be drunk and super loud. They were cursing and acting very inappropriate for this type of establishment. I felt really bad for the family next to us, they had children with them. The servers didn't say anything to them and continued to serve them alcohol. It was nice and quiet before they came and ruined the night for me and my husband. This was my first time at BV's and I dont think I will return because of this. But the food was good!

They did an amazing job of cleaning the tables and chairs and offered hand sanitizer as soon as we got there. The steak was perfect, wine was priced well, and the chocolate lava cake was unreal. Service was quick and attentive and sweet. Weather was perfect for outdoor dining. Hoping to be back very soon!

Birthday. Gilbert was wonderful and management was very pleasant and accommodating. Not sure why they are not serving pre-meal bread anymore, but that would be my only displeasure. Social distancing was observed appropriately and all staff wore gloves and masks as warranted by public health standards. I was reticent to eat in a restaurant considering the current pandemic climate. I am hopeful that this helps us all get back to our “new normal” amid trying circumstances in order to support our restaurant industry and staff!

The food was good, not perfect but okay. Our waiter was young and inexperienced. He kept pushing us into our next course while we did not want to until we finished our bottle of wine which he threw over the table.

Never again..

Really nice, friendly service. The food overall was very good. The brussel sprouts came in a very heavy sauce, but I can recommend the mac and cheese, french fries, and my salad. (The salad size was very generous).

I was there for a birthday dinner for two. The service level started out good, but went downhill when our waiter Gilbert took on a large table next to us. After our food was brought out we were summarily ignored and then I was brought literally the most stale piece of cake that I have ever been served.

I do not take lightly to leaving a bad review, but felt compelled to do so. It was to be a special dinner, that costs $300, so I truly expected a MUCH better experience. It was my first time, and I have no desire to return.

I had a Really good experience for my date night Friday. Me and my date ordered the lamb with green beans and Mac and cheese which was amazing. The lamb was a tad bit tough but very flavorful and still delicious. I felt welcomed and very comfortable here with such a diverse and attentive staff. I would definitely recommend and look forward to coming back to try the scallops and crab cake.

We went on a quiet thursday night and had a great time. Everything was well cooked, the only reason for 4 rating were for the desserts. Cheesecake was awful, no flavor and the ice cream the kids had , had freezer burn and tasted awful! We were staying at the sofitel so it was highly convenient.

We all went for hamburgers as the entrees and appetizers were very expensive — especially for lunch. If you want steak, an appetizer, dessert and a glass or two of wine, expect to pay well over $100 per person. The burgers were excellent and the portions were equally-good. Service was terrific and the atmosphere was cozy and inviting.
