Couple of things I love, followed by a couple things I dislike
1. It really is amazing food.
2. I dare you to find better service.
3. Needs more locations, preferably one near zona rosa haha
4. It is kind of expensive for your everyday date, which is a bummer bc if it was closer and cheaper I would eat there everyday haha

My first trip to V's! Personally I like the old Italian flare....others may not. The food was pretty good. I will tell you the prime rib was perfectly cooked for my taste and the Italian cake is something I've never had before but I would go there again for just that. The filled pasta shells and glazed salmon were also very good for a buffet. We went for Sunday brunch and at $21/head I would go back again.

Special $10 National Spaghetti Day Event; This time our server was outstanding! He checked in often, listened to our order and delivered as requested. His personality was light and fun which we totally enjoyed. Need to find out his name as we'd definitely want his area again.

Hubby's BDay dinner celebration, a fav place for fried chicken. We both ordered, however only he received. My order was mot taken correctly, I got chicken parm, not fried chicken, so order placed again as hubby slowly ate his meal. Mine arrived just as we were ready to leave, so all packed for takeout. Not quite the special dinner we had planned. I was a bit disappointed. but full price on all, no consideration offered.

Our waitress who I can’t remember her name but was an older gal was absolutely amazing. She squeezed our roasted garlic clove for us and was all around very attentive and did a really good job. This place doesn’t get the credit it deserves. Truly a KC gem for Italian Restaurants.

Our waitress, Rachel, was wonderful! This was our first time there and the food selection made it difficult to decide what to eat. The calamari was really good. The prime rib was so nice it melted in your mouth. Also, the button mushrooms complimented nicely. We will definitely visit again to try something different.

Sorry not sorry. This place looks better from the outside. My uncle ordered a well done steak and got a charred steak instead. I ordered seafood mac & cheese. It was over cooked. However, my Caesar salad and his baked potato was great along with the long island ice teas. It was our first and last time dining there. The waitress was nice,attentive and
apologetic. I got cards for free fried ravioli on my next dinner in visit. Won't be using them.😑

Unfortunately, Not as good as usual. For my wife's birthday, the food was overly oily, & the server mentioned that their new chef didn't know what he was doing yet! We asked for Prosecco, and there was only Asti, which was unexpected and a disappointment.
We're going to give V's time to work out its kinks and hope to return in a few months. We've always enjoyed V's. in the past.

This is the only review I have ever made on anything in my life but I feel so strongly that I was ripped off that I am writing this review. We booked a Thanksgiving meal and paid over $105 for 3 people. It was a huge disappointment! The selection was slim, the portions were tiny, and the food was cold. The portion size might be appropriate for a toddler but not adults. A serving through the buffet line for ham was 2 tiny triangles (not even a full slice), the green beans were canned and overdone. The best thing was the little portion of pasta they offered (less than a cup which is a single serving). I went back twice for my half a cup of pasta but the servers removed my forks and plate when I went up the second time so getting anything near my money's worth wasn't an option. It would've been an exhausting adventure to revisit the line enough times anyhow but didn't appreciate not having the option on a buffet. I looked at my watch at the end of the meal and this was the fastest sit down experience we've ever had. We felt rushed out and discusted by the experience. The funny thing is we had a reservation and our table wasn't ready when we arrived so had to wait. We were in V's less than 30 min to include waiting for a table, walking through the "buffet" line (food wasn't even personalized or brought to table) and payment. We were hoping we could order off the menu but that wasn't an option. I am not sure if my review will deter anyone but I hope to save at least a few people from being ripped off (at least on Thanksgiving). The food was cold, mediocre, and ecessively overpriced. My husband and daugther, the ultimate optomists, couldn't even find a silver lining in the meal.
