We had a great dinner for our 25th wedding anniversary.
We went for my husband's birthday and were very pleased. Everything we had was delicious the server was friendly, all I can ask for worth the money.
My friends and I made a reservation here on St. Patrick’s Day night to celebrate the holiday and also our friends 21st Birthday! The service was excellent and the food was delicious. Our waitress was very kind and we surprised our friend with a birthday cake from Carlo’s bakery and our waitress helped us pull off the surprise perfectly. Thank you for a great experience!
Excellent food !! Spotless dinning room
The service was very good. The food was mediocre. It was nice place for a bite to eat.
Living in North Jersey I am very familiar with Carlos Bakery and the show. Was at the Sands and wanted to try Buddy’s restaurant. Atmosphere was cozy and the staff very friendly. The service was also above average! The food on the other hand was below the quality i have come to expect from Buddy as i am a life long customer of Carlos’s. We had the Jersey City style fried Mozz and the sauce that came with that was probably the best i ever had. I should preface this by saying we ate there two nights in a row to give it a real chance. The first night we both got the veal and chicken marsalas. Both plates the meat was dry and the Mushrooms rubbery.
The second night my girlfriend wanted past with sauce but what she received was a mess of mushrooms and veggies that she picked out and thank goodness the waitress brought her a side of sauce. And I had the Margherita pizza which was very good and a side of meatballs which were also very dry.
I’m sorry buddy being a jersey boy myself growing up with Italians i am sure your Nonnas recipe was better than that. I am willing to bet the original recipe was better but the chefs who are in charge of them are not doing them well.
I cant recommend eating here i was extremely disappointed. Next time i am at the Sands will definitely be trying the other options!!!
Relaxed atmosphere with interesting decor. Service was prompt and food served quickly. I wish there was a gluten free bread available for with the oil /vinegar, even a pre packaged bread stick or maybe a few grilled polenta rounds. I am always amazed by a restaurant that offers gluten free pasta yet no gf table bread option. The Salmon special was amazing! Sunday gravy is served meat on side of pasta, odd presentation, yet very tasty per my companion.
Salmon was raw. Reported to Manager who seemed disinterested. Food in general wasn’t special.
Food was great ! Serve Page was the best ! Overall excellent meal
The service was excellent and the ambience was very nice. The food was good and there was plenty of it.
Had a table of 5. Our waitress couldn't be nicer and service excellent.
Raviolis were very tasty and the veal marsala was perfect. The lasagna was very cheesy with little meat. Otherwise, it would have gotten 5 stars.
The chicken parm with spaghetti is very good, the suace is good too
Honestly, sorry was so looming forward to a great dinner. Disappointing, server was friendly and great. That's where it ended.. Tomato soup was good, Salmon was SO dry we didn't eat it. Chicken Parm, well lets just say, I could have used a steak knife to cut it, tried got 1/4 ate. So dry, barely any sauce on pasta.. Dinner was Complimentary, which was so nice, however, if I was presented with a bill of $90+ for food that we didn't eat... I would have been irate to say the least.
2nd time visiting within 3 monthes; food was as good this time as last! Great dinner at a reasonable price for where you are and other options available!
The food and service was excellent as usual. We went back later to the bar. Great drinks and dessert
Wondrrful food and great service!
Had dinner here as we were staying at sands fpr 2 nights and we already had a large party dinner planned the next night at Emeril’s Chop House and our friend doesn’t eat fish. The service was excellent and the food got some very good reviews and some of us were not impressed. The birthday cake dessert was worth it though!
Food and service were awesome,highly recommended for all events
had a great time - very good food, quality! Amy was a perfect server - she was super!
will definitely return - thanks
Friendly staff, good food, excellent ambiance, reasonably priced
The food was very good the service very slow
We had the pre-show dinner and it was excellent for the price.
Had tickets for a show and figured I would make it a full date night. Great food. Sangria was really good. Service was awesome
Aude was a fantastic waiter
Excellent Service. Great night out with friends.
Overall meal was good. Chicken parm was a little dry but editable. Salmon was excellent.
Decided on Buddy V’s since we were seeing a show. Great spot and great food. Good menu and drink selection. Perfect for a “girls”night out. Would definitely recommend to friends. We had the pizza and it was great. Excellent service as well.
Wonderful pizza. Just had a quick bite. It was what I expected. Thank you.
Great spot for the pre show theater. Food & service were very good. I highly recommend.
Good food and good service. Was a little noisy for me but I might still go back
I liked the eggplant parmigiana appetizer but the chicken parmigiana was directly out of a box. The spaghetti side was also mass produced nonsense with no taste. The spaghetti with meat sauce was average. The lobster shell dessert was stale and not worth having.
Overall the prices are ok and the service was fine. The wine prices are 2.5x retail and a lot of the selection is available at any state store or supermarket.
I’m not coming back.
My wife and I had another excellent dining experience at Buddy V's. As usual, everything was outstanding. The food is always delicious, prepared exactly as ordered and served in a timely manner. Leah, our server, was very attentive and made sure that we had everything that we needed throughout our visit. I am already looking forward to my next trip to Buddy V's.
Service was very good. Atmosphere was nice. However, food was just ok and not served very hot. Make sure to ask for extra sauce.
I ordered the spaghetti with meatballs and it was so tasty! I would go back again without a doubt.
Food was good, the bread they give you when you are seated, was delicious! Service was awesome!
Delicious pasta, great service, anda very good value.
Everything at Buddy V's is excellent, comfortable seating, pleasant atmosphere, outstanding service and exceptional food. Our server, Aimee, was very familiar with the menu and provided superb service. This is a very well run establishment, you will not be disappointed!
Apps were very good, Dinners were Delicious, Dessert was disappointing, not fresh. I have purchased Desserts from the bakery in the past the restaurant did not have the freshest. Disappointing.
My husband and I are never disappointed when we dine at Buddy V's. Wait staff is awesome and so is the food.
Food flavor is always good. He puts his own twists on Italian classics. Can't say much about any pork or beef dishes unfortunately but everything else is great
