My mom LOVED being surprised with brunch here. Happy birthday party!
A wonderful day at V's for Sunday Brunch. Great food and fantastic service from Jerry our wait staff. he was very personable and kept the Mimosa's flowing.
V's never disappoints. This truly is one of KC gems!
We had a great time. Reminded us of restaurants in our home town of Chicago. Simply excellent food in an authentic atmosphere. Thank you V's!
The food was awesome. I loved everything we ordered. Drinks were strong. Service was excellent and I definitely will be back. Great night out to dinner with friends. Gluten free options were great and I loved the pasta as well as the pizza and salad.
First time and a great experience with great food and service.
Excellent food and service!
This is the only review I have ever made on anything in my life but I feel so strongly that I was ripped off that I am writing this review. We booked a Thanksgiving meal and paid over $105 for 3 people. It was a huge disappointment! The selection was slim, the portions were tiny, and the food was cold. The portion size might be appropriate for a toddler but not adults. A serving through the buffet line for ham was 2 tiny triangles (not even a full slice), the green beans were canned and overdone. The best thing was the little portion of pasta they offered (less than a cup which is a single serving). I went back twice for my half a cup of pasta but the servers removed my forks and plate when I went up the second time so getting anything near my money's worth wasn't an option. It would've been an exhausting adventure to revisit the line enough times anyhow but didn't appreciate not having the option on a buffet. I looked at my watch at the end of the meal and this was the fastest sit down experience we've ever had. We felt rushed out and discusted by the experience. The funny thing is we had a reservation and our table wasn't ready when we arrived so had to wait. We were in V's less than 30 min to include waiting for a table, walking through the "buffet" line (food wasn't even personalized or brought to table) and payment. We were hoping we could order off the menu but that wasn't an option. I am not sure if my review will deter anyone but I hope to save at least a few people from being ripped off (at least on Thanksgiving). The food was cold, mediocre, and ecessively overpriced. My husband and daugther, the ultimate optomists, couldn't even find a silver lining in the meal.
We love V's. Great people, great service, amazing food. Can't wait to go back.
V's has always been a staple in the KC area, and many have never been there, surprising. Great food, nice little bar area, a good menu and great service.
Great food & service. Karen is a special server!
We had a great time dining at V's on my Son's birthday. The food was great and the service was awesome. We had a large group and the staff didn't miss a beat. We look forward to dining here again. Thanks, the Tolberts
Always great food and service. Steak and lobster some of the best in KC
Great quiet environment with great food and service.
Been going here for 30 years or so. Truly great Italian food and the service staff is always top notch.
Wonderful place to dine and relax. Atmosphere was exceptional and the food was great.
I love this restaurant! I’ve been there several times and the food and service is always superior.
We had a group of 14 everyone liked there food including 4 picky people. The Service was good.The manager came and check on us.
Have not been here for many years but was told the food is fantastic. Had the lasagna and was unimpressed. The price was right and the service was quick, but the food was just okay.
It was a birthday dinner. All went well except for one dish that wasn’t hot but it was remade. Great food and pleasant efficient service.
My wife and I travel to V's for special occasions and just for a great Italian Sunday Brunch. We totally enjoy the atmosphere, the personalized service, and the great food. The small, cozy rooms are just right for our style of dining and the food is ALWAYS top notch. I would highly recommend V's to anyone.
My wife and I love this place and try to visit at least every month or so. Family owned and operated with exceptional service with both uniquely eclectic and traditional Italian fare.
What a nice surprise. Last minute decision to dine at V’s. Easy reservations, lots of parking. They were busy but had our table ready and sat up promptly. Wine service, appetizers and salad were all exceptional! Server knew we were headed to a concert so she made sure our order got in and out on time. Steak and lasagna meals were perfectly cooked. Prices included bread, salads AND dessert! Wow!!! Great experience and value! Will definitely go back!
This was the second time I have eaten at V’s. I brought 3 new people and they loved it. Will have to go back again even though there isn’t a concert to attend at arrowhead. I’ll drive the distance. It’s that good!!
Outstanding, as always! Friends and family favorite for over 20 years!
Another fantastic dining experience for my Lady and Me. Great Food, Atmosphere and Service. Many Thanks.
My boyfriend brought me here for my birthday and proposed to me. The service was fast, food was perfect, and our server was very attentive.
Best Italian food in Independence! Family owned and operated and it shows. Lasagna with mushrooms is amazing and love the rum cake that comes with all entrees. Great ambiance as well.
This is our go-to place for a romantic Italian dinner, especially if we can get one of the booths in the back. Food is always excellent and the service friendly and prompt, no matter how busy.
We were anxious to try V’s as we have heard good things. The place was packed. We had 6:00 reservations and didn’t get seated until 6:25. We had concert tix at 8:00 and were concerned.
The food was certainly good, but honestly there are better options in KC. The chicken spindini was good but heavy on the garlic for my taste. Portion sizes were very good, not too big and filling.
I have been dining at V's since the early 1980s and, amazingly, it has always been a very good experience each and every time and in some ways (menu, wine list, and service) the last few visits have been the best ever. A relatively new menu item is Cioppino which is a clams, mussles, shrimp, white fish dish sauteed in a red sauce. I have eaten Cioppino at least a dozen times in various cities (San Fran, New York, New England, Florida, New Orleans to name a few) and this is either #1 or #2 (memory can play tricks) in terms of overall taste and contained in theonly slightly less seafood than some of the other restaurants. I HIGHLY recommend this dish. Their French Martini is also an excellent cocktail and their toasted beef ravioli is second only to some in St. Louis in my experience. Their house Italian salad dressing is my favorite of all restaurants I've eaten in the KC area over 40+ years of dining. Do yourself a favor and eat there soon and often!
My family has been going to Vs for years and we love it. Rachel is a fabulous server and so are all of the staff.
Old style Italian restaurant ambiance with great food and friendly service. Clearly loyal local folllowing - including us. House salad dressing is a sweet Italian and can be purchased which I highly recommend. Lobster and shrimp cannelloni was rich and tasty. And their lasagna with mushroom sauce is the best in the Kansas City area!
Always a GREAT dining experience in all facets. Charm, service, food and especially, the Rum Cake !
We enjoyed everything about or visit. Staff was very friendly. Food was incredible. I am so glad I found this place. We will go back.
As always, a wonderful place to gather with friends and family.
I grew up with a couple of Totta's and I am so happy that this place is still going strong after all these years. I recently took my mom there for her birthday. We had the brunch and it was fantastic. Great service and food!! I'll gladly go again!
Natalie was our server tonight and fantastic service. Food was perfect as always. Owners Greg and founder Mrs V come around to be sure all is good. Doesn’t get any better!!
