Last year, May 2017, we brought 2 athletes who had qualified for the state track meet. There were about 10 of us and everything was super fantastic. This year, we brought 1 athlete (she requested we return) and there were only 4 of us. Again, everything was super fantastic. The waiters (both years) took the time to answer any and all questions we had, never seemed to hurry us. And the food was soooo good. Hopefully, we will be back next year.

The food and service at this place was great! Our waiter was amazing and super friendly. The food was superb! My only complaint would be about the noise level. For such a fancy and classy restaurant I would not think that would be a problem. My family went to celebrate my dad's birthday and we had to talk quit loud and ask "What?" over and over because it was so loud. I would diffidently come here again though. If you want to enjoy a wonderful meal and feel like a million bucks this is the place to be. Another thing I appreciated is that even though we were celebrating a birthday, they didn't go over the top by singing or anything. They subtly came by and gave us a small plate with an amazing truffle brownie with ice cream on top beautifully decorated with chocolate cursive writing "Happy Birthday!" with sprinkles surrounding the dessert. Great place! Tell your friends. :) Also, the mashed sweet potatoes are AMAZING!!

Great steakhouse with high-quality steaks and other great options. I actually had the fish special which was amazing. Prices are high, specially for the beef steaks, but the quality of the food justifies these, plus there are also affordable options in the menu (e.g., steak frites, steak salad). Great ambiance and service.

Went because of its reputation, and because we had been to most of the other really good steakhouses. Ambience was nice. Short wait in the bar. Nice table when seated. Service started off really good but really tailed off over the night. Steak was great, but no checked to see if it was cooked properly (it was). Veggies and wine served about 10 minutes after steak arrived?? Go figure. And service went downhill from there. Service not as bad as what we experienced at Z'Tejas Grill at the Arboretum the night before, but really not what you would expect for a $200 dinner date either. Top it off the $50 we spent on two glasses of wine was wasted. Wine tasted terrible. Couldn't even finish the glass.....Recommendation - Go to Bob's. They never fail to deliver.

First, the quality of food is low. Despite their desire to deliver a ‘prime steakhouse’ experience, they failed to deliver. Steaks too tough to eat, orders taken then we were informed ‘we’re out of that.’ Then a VERY loud table in the restaurant started what can only be called a ‘hog calling contest.’ When we complained, the owner said ‘they can do what they like with what they’re spending.’ No apologies except he did ask US to leave. I guess two people spending $500 wade is inconsequential. I’d avoid this place it’s nothing but a sports bar masquerading as a steakhouse. Perry’s, Ruth’s Chris or Fogo would have been far better choices. Utterly forgettable and terrible treatment from a very unprofessional manager.

Our dinner was great and the server explained all their cuts and suggested things we really enjoyed and tasted wonderful . We both had the Filet and it was cooked perfect and the flavor was great. Would suggest it to my customers and friends . But remember you get what you pay for so expect it to be top tier on price and flavor but no complains here. Great service we will be back next visit in July!

We have been about 5 times now and the last 2 times I think we must have just had waiters that weren't the best. This time we arrived nearly the time it opened. The place was mostly empty. They sat us quickly and then we waited....we waited for 10 minutes and no one came to see us. There was another waiter helping another table very close to us but we obviously were at a table he was not taking care of. After 10 minutes my husband when back up to the hostess station and told them no one was helping us. They apologized and went back to figure it out. The waiter finally came out and said that no one told him he had a table. Okay. Then he just had no personality. He was very soft spoken and hard to hear, he did not explain the menu or the meat board we ordered. The waiters before have always been very helpful and out-going, very welcoming. He was not. However, I will say he did keep our water and coffee fresh, he did check on us and our food was DELICIOUS! So overall, we love VY Steakhouse but wish all the waiters were of the same caliber.

Have been going to VY Steakhouse for many years and every time I go, quality of food and service drops moderately. With this last visit, it's time to move on to a new place for great steaks. During my recent visit on a Saturday night, waiter wasn't very attentive. Brought appetizer and 2 minutes later brought salad (last time I checked, wait staff brings next dish after current course is finished by guests). When the main course arrived, only 2 dishes (out of 4) were served and waiter was looking over shoulder trying to figure out where the other half of the order was. After a couple of minutes, he came back with the rest of the entrees. Steak was correctly cooked for 2 of 4 in our party. I ordered a medium and got a well done steak (waiter never asked if it was cooked correctly). Sad to see this place continue to drop in food quality and service. Hopefully Mattress Mack's daughter (Laura McInvale - owner you see on TV commercials) will try to improve.

Amazing steak and Brussels sprouts! Our waiter, Gary, was extremely awkward. He just stood at our table not saying anything every time he came over to get our order for something. We had to say "I guess we will order now" and he would say "okay." He was very nice, but super awkward which made for an uncomfortable dining experience.

The steaks were amazing, and the wine selection was very reasonably priced for the quality. It would have been worth the trip just to meet Joe, our waiter. He made the evening all the more special and memorable. Highly recommended!
