Vee Vee is doing an amazing job during this strange time. The food was delicious, the service was great, the patio is beautiful, and we felt completely safe in terms of their safety precautions. I highly recommend you going there in person or enjoying their delicious takeout very soon.

We had such a lovely time eating out at Vee Vee's

The outdoor tables, chairs, and umbrellas were beautifully designed. A light breeze blew over our faces and rustled tree leaves overhead. The service was exceptional as usual. (They make it look easy.)
The food was sumptuous.

This was not the Vee Vee I’m used to. It was evident that they were trying to save money by cutting portions, using not as fresh ingredients, and using cheaper ingredients. A partial chicken breast (with mushy skin) and a kale Cesar shouldn’t cost almost $30. My mom had to eat another meal when we got home because she was still hungry. My steak was overcooked and the chimichurri was thick and looked like baby food. The saving grace was my boyfriend’s beef pasta which was lovely. Overall, we were disappointed because we expected better from the previously exceptional Vee Vee.

We've loved this restaurant for years and were thrilled when they opened a back patio during the pandemic. Each course -- from the watermelon gazpacho to the dessert -- was as delicious as we'd remembered. Great service and ambience, too. We feel very fortunate to live walking distance from this local treasure.

Vee Vee's outdoor garden is a delight and one of the few positive COVID 19 changes. I hope they keep it going...

This was our choice for breaking our long absence from in restaurant dining, 4.5 months to be exact. And it met everyone of our expectations, as well as our desire to be in a comfortable safe space. The patio they have created generates a quiet countryside atmosphere. And Everyone was wearing a mask until eating. The food selection continues to be as broad as one expects from VeeVee and every morsel was delicious.

We will be back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The VeeVee new outdoor patio is funky, sweet, charming. Couldn't recommend more highly! The food is as good as ever and owners Kristen and Dan are such good people that you'd want to support them even IF their food and drinks and ambiance weren't terrific. Which they are.

This classic JP restaurant quickly put together than outdoor seating space to open for guests during times of social distancing. The same great food and gracious hosts and wait staff. The outdoor-seating in the rear rather than curbside made the ambience quieter and car-free. The menu is a little shorter until it takes off but many of my favorites are still there.
