Including kids, there were 10 of us for Father's Day - reservations were correct, nice area for us together for such a large group, and great service. Meals were prompt and correct, making a very nice outing.

Have been to the wonderful Sunday brunch buffet twice. Excellent service, good quality food choices. And price includes mimosas/champagne.
Make reservations...very busy for Sunday brunch. You will be seated quickly with reservations.
We really enjoy the food and the people working there are very accommodating, friendly and helpful.

Had a good time with my daughter at Mystery Dinner night. The food and service was really good. Thought the entertainment was excellent. There were a few things that could be improved starting with the temperature of the room. Often very hot, humid and uncomfortable. Having some mobility challenges, the steps were an effort for me to negotiate. I was also a little disappointed when our table reqested more bread and we were told the chef said there was no more bread. Overall I thought the experience was better than average.

V’s has the best veal parm in the Kansas City area and I appreciate that the meal includes a great salad and dessert. Very busy with a number of groups yet service was still prompt and attentive. Our “go to” Italian restaurant.

The Sunday morning brunch was recommended to me so I made reservations for when my sister came to town from Texas. I've lived here in KC for 25 years and never knew such an amazing restaurant was so close. I will definitely be returning.

Very nice place but the chairs were very uncomfortable and we felt the price for the quality and quantity of food we received was not acceptable. Better off going to fazolis or olive garden for the quality of food we got. I also will never understand why they bring out cold bread and refrigerated butter... One of the 2 should be warm. Other than that very nice scenic quiet place.

This was our first time to Vs for brunch. They had all of the classic breakfast items you would expect available but much better quality than most buffets in town. The breakfast potatoes were extremely good. The biscuits and gravy were heavenly. The french toast was made from the italian bread slices the serve - YUM. And then there were all of the other non-breakfast food items available including a made to order pasta station + deserts. Oh, and bottomless drinks are served - even mimosas if that's your thing. The food and service at Vs is second to none. I would come back in a heartbeat <3

We love eating dinner here and we just tried their brunch this weekend. It was amazing although a little expensive. Vast options and great drink choices included. I personally loved the cheese pasta with white sauce that they would make you fresh for brunch.

Food was more than what I expected to pay. The app was good, however the salad that came with the food was just lettuce and cheese and two small tomatoes. The main meal was bland and the same goes for the steak served. It wasn't bad, just not the best food I have tasted for that price.

The food was delicious and the wait staff were very attentive. And it didnt hurt that you get a free piece of Italian wedding cake at the end of the meal. Mama V made a stop by the table to say hi and check on us. V’s has been around for a while and it’s obvious why. It’s great to support local restraunts and ignore the chain ones. V’s is an Independence staple with their great food, service and ambiance.

Mother's day so a bit noisy, hectic, and crowded. However, the staff was amazing keeping up. Wasn't able to sample pasta station due to crowd, but the aromas were great. Food was very good.

We decided to go here on a whim to celebrate my college graduation and birthday with my parents, husband, mother in law, and sister in law. Our server, Jerry, was incredibly attentive and just super nice. Other staff came by to refill drinks and ask how our experience was. We truly felt like we were 100% taken care of an accommodated at V’s! On top of that, the food was absolutely delicious!!! Each of us were more than satisfied with the quality of food and we all had leftovers! My mother in law told me that she can’t stop thinking about the food, too bad she lives in St. Louis and can’t return soon! My husband and I will definitely be returning for date nights.

The food was fantastic, but our service was below par. We only saw our server 4 times. We were there for 2.5 hours and wanted our italian cake that came with our dinner but our server was so scarce that we were just ready to leave (2 fussy kids that wanted ice cream and 1 asked the server twice if she could have ice cream but he ignored her). And then the server added a $10.66 tip to one of our tickets after we had signed the receipt. I hope V's took that off after we called.

This place was terrible. I’m not sure how it got so many good reviews. Food was slow, not hot and just not good, lacked flavor and the Alfredo sauce was like wallpaper paste.

My son took his Prom date to V's and had a great time. They enjoyed the food, the atmosphere, and were treated so special for their big date night. It made for a very memorable evening and he was pleased to have chosen it for this special occasion. It also was very reasonably priced and he walked away feeling the value was right and the food was delicious.
