Been here a few times - very good for lunch. Service was a bit slow on this visit.
I enjoyed the Bianco pizza that Star recommended.
Place was dead on a saturday night. Not sure what this place is going for...a sports bar, a lounge, a fancy restaurant, the identity is unclear which makes it awkward.
Girls weekend! Food and service was good.
I ordered fetucinni alfredo, the food was ok, but it was too oily.
The price, I would say - normal.
The staffs were terrible. I never use there.
Service and Food was great, however the parking validation process is a headache. Other than that overall I will return again in the future.
Everything was delicious. Best chicken Parm! Seating on the “couch” side was not good, as soon as you sat down you sank into the cushions. So we moved to the other side of the table to sit on the regular chairs.
Mr risque was great!! He made sure being visitors to the area that we knew about the choices at the restaurant and around town. The food was sooo amazing. Very authentic Italian with a twist. As a chef myself I was very pleased with the food coming from this chic little bar/pizzeria/restaurant.
The service was outstanding. Our server was extremely helpful both navigating the menu and picking a wine. Considering the fact that the place doubles as a sports bar, the food was great. Would definitely come back
Although the food was authentic italian, phenomenal, the ambiance was very bad. There was a client by the bar who was drunk and was very loud and cursing and screaming all the time and the bartender and employees screamed and cursed along with him and the manager did not do anything about it until and called him and said it was not acceptable. They slowed down for a couple of minutes and then it came back to the same situation. I complemented the chef but I am not going back to eat at VB3
We had two different pastas which were both bad - one was way too oily with truffles and the other vodka sauce was tasteless. The only good thing was the meatballs. The service was subpar as they delivered our salad when they delivered our patas. We returned the salad as we didn't want to eat it with our pasta. The server never came over to apologize for the error. The music is loud, so unless you are going for a bar scene this place is not good for dinner ambiance. I would go here for a drink and meatballs. The meatballs are the reason they even got even a one star, otherwise one of the worst dinner experiences we have had in a long time.
My post birthday celebration.
More of a bar scene than a sit down restaurant. Good food, good value, but won't go back unless I'm looking for a happy hour
We were looking for a chill, half way decent and affordable Italian restaurant and came across VB3. Our waiter was very attentive but he should have known their wines better. The food was edible but that is about it. Barely Italian, they should just say that they serve various forms of noodles with jar-tomato sauce on top. I will not return unless I just want a drink at their faux-swanky bar.
We didn't find it special. The space is nicely done and the gentleman and the server who received us were nice. The food is ok and the service can use some work
Extremely slow for lunch. Kitchen seemed disorganized. Took over an hour to serve a table of 4 sandwiches. Wouldn't recommend for a "quick" lunch spot.
Excellent service. Potato gratin was amazing (side dish to the steak), Steak was overcooked. Ribs were great. They let us order mozzarella sticks which weren't on the dinner menu, that gave them extra kudos from us.
Very dark inside restaurant, salad didn't come as decribed and was drowning in dressing. Added steak to salad but wish I didn't as the meat tasted like it was cooked earlier and microwaved. BBQ chicken pizza was pretty good though.
This was the worst experience we had in New Jersey. The restaurant was so loud that I couldn't hear my wife. They were out of fish so we walked out. We will never come back.
Maybe it's better earlier in the day, but we were just trying to grab a good dinner around 10 pm near our hotel. Food was great. But considering that there were more servers/bartenders than there were patrons, the service could have been a lot better. Everything seemed to take longer than necessary--even just getting a glass of water. I never received a second cocktail I ordered. Unbeknownst to us it was also "ladies night" and a DJ was there, blasting music to a near-empty restaurant. It was not a relaxing meal.
Great service great food and good timing
Great place! Great ambiance! Excellent service! Inexpensive! My boyfriend loved it!
This restaurant seems like a place in search of an identify. The bar, the centerpiece of the main dining room, seems to be going for a cool vibe with funky lighting. The music being played adds to the atmosphere. However, the many, many TVs tuned to sports seemed out of place. The furniture was dated, especially the bench seats around the perimeter of the room were heavily worn. The food was decent, with exceptions. For example, the scallop dish was good, but the bacon that topped the scallops was cold and hard, like it had been sitting around for hours.
It was a very quiet night at VB3. Based on the previous reviews we expected outstanding food, which it wasn't. More upscale bar food. The food was good but given that VB3 is rated as a top restaurant in NJ we truly expected something exceptional. The service was very good and everyone was very friendly.
They have outdoor seating.
I had the pork saltimbocca and the whole entree was way to salty ..so when I told the waiter he returned the meal but when I received my check it was still on there ..so I mentioned it to the waiter ,he took it to the manager and instead of taking it off the bill he comp'd my drinks ...I still paid a portion of the meal...I won't ever go back due to poor management ...
Took my wife for Valentine's Day Dinner and was not disappointed. Appetizers of mussels with garlic sauce were great, i had the whole deboned bronzino, my wife had the lamb chops and as sides we ordered the cauliflower and the truffle parmesan fries. Everything was spot on and the presentation was great. What was also neat was that their bread basket was a basket of cupcake size yorkshire pudding breads with a sprinkling of cheese on them. Really fantastic! We will definitely go back. My only disappointment was that they took off the charcuterie board (italian antipasto version) off the menu but their chopped antipasto salad made up for it.
The food was amazing! Every part of the meal was a treat from the appetizer to the main course. There were so many options on the menu but we opted for eggplant meatballs for the appetizer which blew my mind and tasted so unique. For the entrees we ordered eggplant Parmesan and lobster mac and cheese with a side of truffle fries and roasted potatoes. Each thing we ordered tasted great and the server was so polite. The ambiance of VB3 is romantic and inviting at the same time. The bar has every liquor you can think of and the drinks are well made too. This is a great place to dine and/or have group gatherings. I will return for more.
The service was very good. The food was adventurous and different. I thought it was flavorful and good. I'd recommend this restaurant. The bar is very interesting.
Our hearts sank when we entered. Huge TV screens and loud mindless music, when we wanted a quiet leisurely catch-up lunch. However, we were ushered to a quiet part of the restaurant and the waiter turned down the loudness. In fact the service was outstanding, and the food (we just had mimosas, salads and desert) was delicious and thoughtfully conceived, in fact deserving of a more pleasant setting. My only recommendation to the owners is to decide what clientele they want to market to.
The food and service were really good (although the hummus tasted odd), but it felt like more of a club than a restaurant. Between the music and chatter, it's a pretty loud place. I'll give it another shot...
This was my second time visiting VB3 for lunch. I will definitely be returning.
As usual the food was good. However I did not receive my dining points.
This was my first visit to VB3 (and also my friend's). We had a very enjoyable lunch. I just loved my sandwich - the chicken sandwich with roasted peppers and arugula (on a terrific roll)!
Its a bit pricey for the newport area but overall is a good find and has a great atmosphere. mushroom pizza is great!
