Buddy V’s Ristorante
Overall food and service was very good. Surprised that no spoon was served with spaghetti and also that the parmesan cheese served was the powdered kind like you buy at the grocery store instead of freshly grated. Table was small for four people all ordering full dinners, our bread was removed from the table unknowingly, I assume to give us more room for our dinners. Very loud in the restaurant, hard to carry on a conversation. In the area we were seated it was pretty dark and made it hard to read the menu
Great food! Excellent wine! Love the family feel of the dishes! True Italian cooking!
Excellent and diverse menu. Top notch service. Reasonable prices
Service was great! From front of house to back of house, everyone was really nice & lovely. You could tell it was a team atmosphere. Our waiter, Audie, was amazing & attentive even though his section was packed. He took time to explain the menu and got me hooked on your red sangria! Very pleased & happy with our whole experience. Will definitely be back for another date night! Thank you so much Buddy V!!!
So far, excellent food. Disappointed that we weren't seated in the inside of the restaurant instead of the outside near the casino slot machines. There were tables inside??? Otherwise the food and service was good.
We enjoyed our meals at Buddy V's. Our table ordered seafood, pasta, veal, etc. all of which were very good. Our complaint was the service. Our waitress immediately greeted our table, however, it took her quite some time to take our drink order and food order. We could have used more drinks throughout the meal, however, our waitress was not available to us. Our food came out in a timely manner, however, after that our server did not return to our table until the very end of the meal. We were all planning on ordering desserts, but the waitress took so long to get back to us and we were afraid the desserts would also take an extra long time. We allowed 2 1/2 hours for dinner prior to a ticketed event (as we usually do), however, we would not recommend dinner here prior to a show unless 3 hours or more was allotted.
I love this place it's like Grandma's is in the kitchen!
Food was excellent, drinks a little pricey and service was great! Waitress was very attentive!
We expected more selections on the menu.
Date night dinner
Buddy V's was a wonderful experience. Food was amazing and service was as well. I would highly recommend this restaurant. And dont forget to get a dessert. They are the best!
food was good! the best was the lasagna nachos!!! had a great time
I used to be a big fan. Food was always terrific. This is now our second mediocre experience. It seems ever since the menu update and renovation the food quality and taste has suffered significantly. Pasta repeatedly overcooked. Meat in Sunday dinner burnt tasting (twice). Meatballs have almost no taste. Decor is nice and service is pleasant but food has taken a major hit.
We made a reservation 2 hours prior to a concert to make sure we had enough time. The restaurant was already busy when we sat down and it was SO loud - to the point where my husband and I had to yell at each other to be heard. I had requested a "more quiet" table due to a hearing loss but that was not the case when we sat down. The outside portion would have been much better to sit but all tables were taken so we could not move. We had calamari for appetizer which was OK. Our meal took over an hour to come out after the appetizer and we were almost late for the concert. The meal itself was honestly mediocre at best. This is a restaurant inside a casino so the prices were not reasonable but we were hoping for the food and service to be better! Our waitress was running around like a chicken with her head cut off and she was as helpful as possible, but overall, it was not good enough due to the kitchen being so backed up. We should have eaten at the food court and it would have been cheaper with better service.
Buddy V should stick to making desserts!
The filet mignon medallions I ordered medium rare came out well done and they were on the dry side. The rest of the dinner was good but highly price for what we got.
The food is very good here, the service is terrific, and it's a convenient spot to dine before a concert at the Event Center. They honored my request for a quiet table by seating us at a booth in the back corner. Thank you, Buddy V's!! We'll be back!
The food at Buddy V's is very good and reasonably priced. Service was excellent!
Service was good. Food was good. I would recommend
The food was blah.
The service was fair.
I will go elsewhere when we are in that area.
Food was not good at all and unfortunately the desserts did not make up for the poor dinner. Clearly just a tourist trap. I wish I could take that meal back.
Meat and cheese appetizer board was marginal at best. Cold cuts were cut way too thick. Cheeses clearly were left out and dried up.
Penne with vodka was very bitter indicating the cream used in it was spoiled
Fettuccine Alfredo was very dry. Barely had sauce on it
With the exception of the hostess who needs to learn how to be polite and smile, the experience was wonderful. Server was excellent and the food was wonderful.
Great meal!!! Great Service!!!
Great service great food great atmosphere would love to come back here one day!
Excellent service with outstanding food. A little bit noisy and you sit really close to other guests. We were inside. Other than that a fantastic meal.
Lovely decor and open style kitchen.
GREAT FOOD AND SERVICE AS ALWAYS. TEMPERATURE IN THE RESTAURANT WAS A LITTLE CHILLY. THAT WAS THE ONLY BLEMISH IN AN OTHERWISE GREAT ANNIVERSARY DINNER.
The server took our order promptly, but it took too long for the food to arrive My Minestrone soup was cold and too salty.
The food is worth it! Although the seating is a bit tight and there is not a lot of privacy, the food is fantastic. You just can't get good Italian food like this in the area.
Definitely try the lasagna nachos!
Amazing service! Waiter was so personable, gave amazing suggestions, and really knew the menu inside and out!
We have eaten here a few times and we have always left full and satisfied
I really enjoyed the restaurant. Food was excellent! The wait staff was very friendly and efficient! Would definitely return.
Excellent food, service and atmosphere. A very enjoyable experience.
Usually a great experience here, but on this occasion I was not impressed. Seemed like they may have been short staffed. I got the veal parm which I have had many times, but on this visit the veal was thick and tough. Wasn’t a great experience this time. I do qualify that usually we have much better experience at Buddy V’s.
The restaurant was beautiful, our waiter was Audi and he was absolutely fantastic!!! The food was delicious, best marinara sauce I have ever had! They gave us a fantastic table and even did twin cannolis on a beautiful plate with happy birthday for my friends birthday. Everything was awesome!
Atmosphere was great. Waitress was outstanding. She was attentive. Knowledgeable and went out of her way to insure we had. Perfect meal. Food was excellent!
I would recommend Buddy V's to anyone who asks, yes, but honestly, it's really good pasta....a little pricey for pasta but we knew that going in, I guess maybe we just expected more. We had very good food, the service was great and we enjoyed the atmosphere.
Disappointed, didn’t get asked our order till after 30 minutes of being seated. Finally got the order and didn’t even get the salad we asked for, not even a mention of it. Also was handed the bill without even asking us if we wanted dessert.
They give you so much food and it is delicious - the drink menu was amazing.
Prices are so reasonable for what you get - we made reservations ahead of time and they sat us right away on a Saturday Night at 6pm.
Managers were clearing tables and there was no one just standing around.
They did what they needed to do to get people in and out quickly.
No job was beneath any of them. Thank you - that is what team work should look like.
