    The food was exceptional,as always. The staff and service was great! The ambiance was nice and quiet until a very large group came and was extremely loud and not the least bit interested in the other patrons experience. Overall a very enjoyable dinner.

    Very disappointed again. The lunch buffet was warm to cool and not tastey at all. This is the 3rd time in 6 months I have given it a try because we use to come here for the wonderful food. The cocktail lounge is nice and so are the drinks. The service is and always has been excellent. So sad...just can't do the food anymore.

    If you're looking for family-style, authentic Italian-American, then V's is a great option. Heck, the tomato gravy alone is worth the sampling. It's not the most amazing meal you'll ever have, but the dishes are well-executed, the service is top-notch, and the value is absolutely worth five stars. Pro tip: try the eggplant or chicken parmigiana. You're welcome.

    We have been dining here for 40 yrs, theCanalonni (??) was barely warm as served. There was basically no sauce over it. We took it home but decided to toss it the next day. The Manacotti (?) was smothered in sauce but seemed overly rich When I say would recommend, perhaps this was just a bad night. Did seem there were fewer customers than we usually see. We have not been there for about three months

    We have had dinner here before, but not the Sunday Brunch, and had looked forward to this for a long time, but found it disappointing. The eggs benedict was cold, with a very tough english muffin that was difficult to cut, the burnt ends were just pieces of fat with lots of sauce, everything else was just ok. For the price, definitely not worth it.

    What a delightful time we had. The service was wonderful, the food delicious and abundant. We had 9 in our party and we were served quickly, respectfully and had a wonderful time. Our drinks and bread baskets were constantly filled. The waitstaff were so pleasant and didn’t make us feel rushed. Whenever we have out of town guests V’s is always on the top of our lists to visits. Ok, we go even when we don’t have guests.
