I was excited to celebrate your redecorated restaurant and see what’s new and updated. I made a reservation today. It was the first time I have been to a restaurant alone since my husband died in 2015. My server was Karen. I asked about specials. She said well, there was lobster if I wanted that and it was “like $47”. I ordered triple pasta Italiano w a glass of Louis Martini Cabernet Sauvignon. After much discussion about Sauvignon Blanc, she asked to see it on your menu. She said, “oh, it’s red!”
She served my salad and bread promptly. She offered pepper and I’m sure I have as much on me and the table as the salad. My entree came and cheese was offered. Same as the pepper. It is important that you know my plate bore no resemblance to the pictures on your website. It was drowned in sauce. You could not identify anything on the plate the sauce was so heavy. It was not served w care or beautiful presentation and did not look appetizing. The taste was okay, but the spaghetti was overcooked. I brought half my meal home and my server boxed that for me. Again, no care was given, just dumped like garbage in a box.
I’m not sure what your plan was in all the advertising and expense of remodeling. It doesn’t look any different. The food is marginal and your servers uninformed. If your plan was to gain new and more clientele this won’t work.

V's is always a favorite in Independence. Clean, friendly atmosphere where friends like to gather. My fiends and I like to meet there for a glass of wine and dinner.

Food is always great and consistent. The service is impeccable and the restaurant is always way cleaner than any other restaurant. We live in Leawood Kansas, where there is so many restaurants to choose. We think the trip to Independence to go go V's is worth the extra miles

Sunday birthday brunch. Our waiter, Sean, was very personable and apologized for the lack of food. The buffet consisted of scrambled eggs, cubed potatoes, biscuits, gravy, steamed broccoli, lasagna and a cheese pasta. Sean brought us mimosas and water right away. Then we each got a tiny bowl of fruit and a small cinnamon roll. We then selected food from the buffet and discovered it was all lukewarm. Sean asked if we wanted either ham or roast beef and one of us selected roast beef. Two small overly well done slices were served in a small bowl and was not t edible. They had ran out of burnt ends, salad and garlic bread. We realize COVID has affected the restaurant industry deeply but $22 per person for a lukewarm breakfast buffet is ridiculous. V’s used to be one of our favorite restaurants, but we will not be returning anytime in the foreseeable future.

Usually, V's deserves a five star rating from my past visits. We were seated promptly and our server was quite attentively. Not much was wrong, but the prime rib, ordered med-rare was slightly above that. My salad with Blue Chees was served with ranch. My Chicken Spiedini was perfect, as usual. We'll still consider V's as the place to be. The staff is very good.

Food was spectacular-creamy alfredo, loaded with seafood-so so good! House Italian salad dressing was unlike any we'd had before-just a little sweetness-delicious! We'll definitely go back for special occasions! The service was great too.

Server was very observant and met all our needs above and beyond expectations. He suggested an appetizer we were all hesitant ordering. Escargot! There were two adults, a 13 year old, an an 11 year old at our table. We all agreed we would get it. Two adults thought it was good, very rich. We had three together. The 11 year old would not try once we got it. The 13 loved it and ate the other five.

The overall experience was very good. We went during the Sunday brunch. They had a hard time keeping up with the food and plates being available. Our server was great and got the job done well. The bottomless champagne and mimosas was good. I would say it’s worth the money and would likely bring my family back

For our Anniversary we like to go to V's. We had seen the NEW Special, Chicken Marsala online and both thought it sounded great, so we went 1 day early. We decided to split the combination appetizer and split the Chicken Marsala, adding an additional salad & cake for dessert. It was slightly creamy with a large perfectly cooked chicken breast on top of fettuccini. Unfortunately, there were no mushrooms to be found anyplace, as indicated in the pictures & description online. We didn't have a printed description or pictures, so we thought maybe we were mistaken. It was a little disappointing, but good. Everything else was delicious.
