From the Host to the Servers, exceptional service. Definitely we will return.
Excelent italiano food delicias pizza lassaña spaghetti And red wine
Great food. Our server, Kayla was awesome, and went above and beyond, noticing pistachios on the cannoli before we even noticed (mother in-law has a nut allergy).
It was great to dine at one of our favorites and my son was able to take a pic with Buddy! Great night, Great food!
enjoyed our dinner. Food ans service was very good
The food was very good despite some of the prior reviews! We ordered the lasagna nachos as an appetizer, which sounds weird but was actually very tasty! For the main course my family ordered the lasagna, chicken parm, spaghetti and meatballs, margarita pizza, and pepperoni pizza! The only problem we had was the waiter assumed we didn’t want any bread because we ordered an appetizer! He quickly rectified the situation when we questioned whether bread was free or not and gave us a whole loaf to take home!! We brought in a cake from Carlos’s bake shop and they gave us a cannoli for the birthday boy! Overall, quiet, casual, very good food, kind staff, accommodating manager, and a great family night :) would love to go again when we have time
Food is ok not very authentic and lacks having many standard Italian food items including dessert.
Dull ambiance. Food cost expensive for quality. Won't go back.
We celebrated our 29th Anniversary and our waiter Shelby, was so kind and attentive to our table. Suprised us with a dessert that had Happy Anniversary spelt out in chocolate. The details matter alot.
They did not have the appetizer we requested, they did not have kids cup lids, they did not have the dessert we wanted, they did not split the dishes we shared, they did not remember a birthday that we put on the reservation and and they only came to refill drinks once. Horrible experience.
Food was delicious, highly recommended
Great place and food, however the service very understaffed.
Food was not hot , they removed a signature dish from the menu ( greens ). Server was never around . Deserts were small and not made on site . Overall I was disappointed !
It was nice.. food was good! Service was good! The server even had the girl at the front call to see if the bakery was not busy. It was not so we drove over there to get some treats!
Food was good, service ok except the waiter smelled of cigarette smoke.
I kept hearing the commercials on the radio and had been wanting to try it so we went for my 50th birthday lunch and was disappointed. There was not as much of a selection on the menu as I would have thought and the food was okay nothing to exaggerate about and the dessert menu was also limited.
Always a great experience food was great as always
Had lunch with a friend. Food was great and our server was great!
Food was ok. Bread was disappointing. We had to ask our waitress to do everything. Take our order for appetizers and meal. I just wasn’t impressed. I can get better food for less with much better service. Unfortunately this was my first time and I won’t be back.
Great food and atmosphere! Service is excellent! Would definitely recommend for a special occasion.
Food was not very good. It was a bit cold when we got it.
The good and service were good. However, the food would be much improved by serving hotter. The plates were not very warm when served.
Very underwhelming. Food was bland, very limited dessert menu, waitress was slow and forgot we were celebrating my daughters birthday.
Food was fair nothing special
Caprece salad bread was very hard.
As was the lobstertail dessert shell.
Price too high
No ambience as the restaurant was totally empty.
The food was excellent! Service is a little absent at times. This was our second time to a Buddy V's. The first was in Vegas, where the service is very attentive.
We heard great things about Buddy V’s, so we made a reservation for Sunday lunch on our last day living in San Antonio. The restaurant was quiet and not busy. Our booth was not fully cleaned and our waiter paid little attention to us. The food was very overpriced for the amount served. Not impressed and would not recommend to a friend.
it was good and the food was good
We had a great lunch experience and returned to bring friends. The waitress acted like she was put out to bring parmesan, never gave us water, and we had to being up the bread and parm. The shrimp was overcooked. Now our experience is 50/50
Great place, however the service very understaffed. With the prices service should be first class.
Ok first the good..we took my son here for his 15th birthday. I have to say our waiter, Evan, was awesome. He really added to our experience. I think their calamari was awesome! Really really good. I am just ok on the meatballs...as far as dinner everyone enjoyed their meals. The only low point is that my dinner was cold. I had the surf and turf. broccoli was cold. Potatoes were cold. Steak was like warm. Everyone else’s meals were hot. It is like my meal got finished first and sat for awhile. I didn’t want to send it back because I knew my family would want to wait and we were trying to celebrate. I thought it would put a damper on the evening. So I ate some of it. If it had been fresh and warm I would recommend it. This wasn’t a cheap meal so paying that much and getting a bad meal kinda stunk.
Also if I order a filet I want to be the one to cut it. They sliced the filet up on the plate and served it. Which didn’t help keeping it warm.
My son was brought a small cannoli that said happy birthday...and that made his night. And as I said the service was awesome. The only downside was the my meal.
Very good Italian food. Went on a weeknight to celebrate a birthday. Service was good and the cannoli for the birthday girl was amazing!
The food had a good flavor. The portions seemed small. We were not given complimentary bread. Neither were the plates that we ordered to-go. Desserts were not as pictured online. Spent close to $500. Definitely not worth it.
I was expecting more based on the reviews. The vodka pasta sauce was pretty runny. My husband had the Sunday Gravy and it tasted fine. We didn’t even try the a dessert bc the entrees were mediocre. I wouldn’t go again. Service was top notch though.
Top notch food and service. Atmosphere is nice and not overly stated. Our pasta dishes were prepared to perfection. Will definitely come back.
Everything was so fast I loved it❤️
Second time we have eaten there recently. Food is great and service is as well. Real northeast Italian with "gravy" not sauce.
We went for a co-worker's birthday lunch. the food was ok, we were hoping it would be great due to it being by Buddy V. We have been to better Italian restaurants.
We always enjoy the service at Buddy V's! A kind and knowledgeable waitstaff and manager team goes a long way. And Buddy V's has that!
Everything was fine - ok but not particularly special
Don't bother purchasing the cannoli's. Get them at the bakery instead. I purchased 3 of them for my table. The cannoli shells were not filled. They only filled the openings of each shell to give off the illusion they're filled. They were completely empty when we cut into each one of them. I would've taken it up w/the waiter if he ever appeared to check on my table. Very disappointed!
