Had dinner with friends. Nice to be able to hold a conversation without shouting. Besides the fabulous dinner and service the ambiance is a refresher from so many restaurants being rolled out today. The owner coming by to see how your dinner is and really cares is also something you very seldom get anywhere else. The steak amazing and spaghetti and meatball awesome. Huge wine selection too.

This is truly a nice authentic italian dining experience! The food was outstanding and I'll be craving it for a very long time. I had the Chicken Spiendini and it was crispy and very flavorful. I did think it could have had more garlic oil for the angel hair pasta, but solved that with an added side of delicious alfredo sauce. The Artichoke con Frutti Di Mare was so good! The lobster was so tender and butterry!

We’ve partake in Sunday Champagne Brunch several times. This will be our last time visiting this establishment one hour prior to closing. Everything was cold and dried out. I heard it was a big crowd for St. Patrick’s Day. Our server took for ever to come to our table to say hello as well. Usually we have a great time here. One thing I must say, I do appreciate them taking my significant meal off the bill, he was not feeling well and was unable to eat. This is the very reason why we love coming to this place and understand how busy today was for them and they cared enough to remove his meal. Thank you and we will see you again for dinner soon.

It was a little crowded, they could take a table out so it's more comfortable, and the waiter was a but pushy at first. I hadn't even looked at the menu when he started drilling me with questions. But he relaxed as the meal went on. Food was excellent with an over abundance of portions! Kids enjoyed themselves as well.

Been coming to V's for over 20 years and have always had the best time and great service. The staff have always treated us very well. This last time though, we were asked to give-up our table so they can seat the next party. We had a large party, yes, and we were done eating but still just sitting there talking with family at the table. An employee (not our server) interrupted us and asked us to leave so they could sit the next party! It wasn't like we were squatting there for hours! I will still go back though. Hopefully this was just a one-time incident. Our server, Rose was fantastic though.

Wow, they honor our request for a corner table in the back which added to the romantic setting which I had hope for. The staff who were super busy made every effort to ensure we had the privacy we long for. Add the food which was delicious and the evening was a success. Vs is five stars for sure...

Unfortunately, our waitress wasn't attentive to us. She forgot straws, our appetizer. And it was pretty costly for 2 people to eat here. $70 to be exact. Wasn't very pleased.

Friendly service, solid menu, but they need to update a few things and tighten up on the details. Our salad came without the pumpernickel croutons, pasta cooked past al dente’ and rum cake slightly dry. Service very slow to initially take order. So much history here that we keep coming back, but not really keeping up with competition at this price point.

Went to V's Restaurant for a late Valentine's Day celebration and enjoy their Sunday brunch. Was greeted and seated immediately. The food was delicious with a variety of egg dishes, bacon, sausage, salmon, pasta, fresh fruit, and a selection of desserts. Sam was our waiter and we could not ask for better service. Unlimited mimosas was also included in the brunch. I would highly recommend V's. We will definitely be returning.

It was our first visit to V's so we didn't know what to order. Next time we will try the lasagna. Was disappointed by the peach bellinis. What Italian restaurant doesn't know how to make a peach bellini! Our server had been there 17 years and was very good.

You can never go wrong by eating at V's. We always request the Tuscany Room and we have
never been dissatisfied. You can hold a conversation with no problem. I would recommend
making a reservation to anyone that wants a nice quiet evening with great food.

We have been coming to V's since moving to Independence in 1985. We have always loved this place - the food is excellent and the service is always top notch. We tell everyone we know about it on a regular basis! We are V's customers for life! The Chicken Spiedini and Veal Parm are our "go to" dishes.

We had reservations and still had to wait 20 minutes for a table. I ordered prime rib, they served my salad, then came back to tell me that they didn't have prime rib ready and that it would be 30 minutes. While my wife and I were debating on staying or going, the waitress returned to say that it would now only be a couple more minutes. The prime rib, ordered medium rare, came out a few minutes later and was prepared medium well.

The service as always was impeccable. The food is a bit on the sweet side, though, from their house dressing to their red sauce to their cheesecake. The noise level, unfortunately, was the worst we had ever encountered there, maybe just that section. Overall, it is a nice place with good food.
