Nice variety of food items. Staff does a great job of serving the fresh fruit, cinnamon rolls and carved meat individually from the kitchen. Other hot items on the buffet were very tasty. Eggs benedict was not very hot, my only complaint regarding the food. Due to COVID, V's does a really good job spacing out tables. I liked it better when they had staff serving individual plates on the buffet line vs. now they have hand sanitizer at the beginning of the buffet but each customer is handling each of the entrees on the buffet. I felt safer when they were doing the serving. Mimosas and champagne included with buffet makes it very reasonable priced.

We were first concerned about the virus by even going out to dinner at all but after we arrived and checked in all worries disappeared. Nice and quiet, very clean all employees were wearing masks at all times and all customers were 6 feet or more apart. Service was immediate and very courteous. Very nice soft music played with just right lighting. Food was excellent, and price was very reasonable. Will return many more times hopefully.

As always, V's as a whole is a very good place to go with a friend whether it is for dinner or for the Sunday Buffet as this trip was. Great food, even tho the buffet is smaller, we understand the necessity of same. The waitresses were awesome not letting our Mimosa glasses to get empty during our visit.

Wonderful romantic atmosphere, even better food. If you get the lasagna order yourself a side of meatballs to add to it if you enjoy more meaty lasagna. Service was excellent. Will be back soon!

We were there for the Sunday Champagne Buffet Brunch on Nov 1. In times past, I’d rate it high, except that they removed the true authentic garlic bread like they serve for dinner. We were sorely disappointed this time and I attribute that to the struggles with the China CoronaVirus for restaurants. Everything was overdone, like they were missing the talented chef and in scarce supply. I’ve been there 100 times. The familiar wait staff was missing, like the old timers that knew us. Mama V’s daughter was there and surely knows the difference. She was working to replenish the buffet. Greg was absent. You wouldn’t have the omelet bar, the fruit bar with the ice sculpture (dried and anemic this time served in a small fruit bowl), the carved roast bar...all at the same hefty price. Some customers going through the buffet were not wearing masks. We only hit the buffet one time. I’m not returning until after we get the vaccine and things return to the way we remember. I did tip like old times. I won’t tell my older kids.

We went to brunch for our 13 year anniversary. It was outstanding!! We have never been to the Sunday brunch. They did an excellent job with their social distancing. Even provided gloves and hand sanitizer. Our waitress was amazing very friendly and very knowledgeable of the food. She was not overwhelming. Thanks Rachael for great service. It was a wonderful experience we will definitely be going back. Can’t wait for them to bring their lunch buffet back!

Wonderful experience, greeted and seated immediately upon entering the restaurant....our server has worked at the restaurant for 29 years, that alone says volumes of positive about the restaurant....the owner/founder well into her 80s came by to say hello, as well as her daughter and son-in-law...our food arrived timely and each dish was outstanding...my son had the best lobster he has ever had....our server carefully package our leftovers...our check was accurate and our payment quickly processed...our server thanked us repeatedly...leaving the restaurant the greeter again thanked us.... WE WILL GO BACK!!!

Its been YEARS since I have been to this fine establishment. The food was amazing and while the restaurant looks just like when I was in a kid, it was kept very well. I was impressed with the social distancing when seated. We were in a side room with many tables but only one other family was seated in that room. We had a great mail and enjoyed the rum cake that came with everything!

This is an outstanding restaurant. We both ordered prime rib. They were around $17 each. I'm not sure we could even buy them that cheap, I know we couldn't prepare them as delicious. The salad and potatoes were also great. Could not have been better.
