I was with a group of five women. The noise level was low enough that we could all hear each other. We all had the lunch buffet. There was a good choice of food and the food was good. Our server was very attentive and helpful. We will probably go here again.

This was our first experience and we enjoyed it. The food was delicious and came out at a good pace. It was nicely decorated setting a good ambiance. The outside could definitely use a paint job and update to refelect what is inside- so don’t Be fooled! There was lots
Of open seating yet we were set at a booth right by the refill/dish area- so all the waiters hanging out were there talking when not working. Which got old. Good service and we left stuffed.

A perfect location and atmosphere for celebrating my parent’s anniversary, even with young children. The food, hospitality, cleanliness, ambiance, and noise level were all excellent. Hats off to V’s and Momma V herself.

Everything was very good for my first visit. Food was excellent. Wine tasted watered down a bit or like an ice cube had melted in it. And a bug of some sort was under my daughter in laws napkin but we shooed it away. Waiter was gracious and helpful. We will return.

Good for us - making our OpenTable reservations for Father's Day Brunch at V's. With it being offered every Sunday I had forgotten the crush on Father's Day. However, after a brief wait, all the great stuff kicked right in: a private booth, outstanding wait staff and a wide, delicious selection at the brunch tables. The fruit was extra fresh, the ham and baron of beef terrific and you can serve yourself the biggest ever slice of V's famous rum cake - my favorite. Our go-to place for birthdays, anniversaries, entertaining and whenever we need a delicious treat. Thank you to the Totta Family for this 5 decade plus KC area tradition.

The fresh, dressed-to-order pasta and mimosas were the highlight of our visit. The pasta really is to die for. Our party of 6 were unanimous in our praise of the pasta. The traditional breakfast items (eggs, bacon, french toast etc.) were good but could have been warmer. The service was truly outstanding. The restaurant appeared to be full but atmosphere was relaxing. I encourage you to try V's brunch.

Overall things were good. The food was great. However the server offered to box up rum cake for us to take home and brought our check back and still walked off without getting it for us. Then she got it for the next table and I had to track her down before we left because when I called for her from my table she just kept walking away.

My family and I ate at V’s for a Mother’s Day brunch and it was an amazing experience. Even though it was incredibly busy we were seated immediately. The food from the buffet was hot and delicious. Our server was friendly and brought our drinks very quickly. She continuously replenished everything without being asked and also cleared away plates as soon as we finished. All of the staff could not have been nicer and we felt appreciated as customers which is not really common anymore. I highly recommend this restaurant.

A buffet with quality and not quantity. Very delicious food and fantastic service! We go for the Sunday buffets on special occasions such as Mother's Day and Father's Day. The champagne and mimosas make it a special meal.

V’s is always very good. We miss the cheese “carrot” on the salad from,years ago. It was just a cute garnish but was worth the extra effort in my book! The salad, fried lobster and baked potato was wonderful though too much food for me so I brought my doggy bag home. It’s an old family favorite.

Lasagne was unremarkable and short on meat filling, long on noodles. Caesar salad dressing had a strong lemon flavor, no hint of anchovies or tangy vinegar flavor. The bread was tasty as was the rum cake that came with the dinner. The calamari was nicely done and tender. The half price bottle of wine was nice.

Overall I think V’s is overrated. The ambiance is old school dark ‘60s or ‘70s with pleasant Dean Martin and Sinatra background music but the lack of flavor of food will make this a one and done visit.
