Food was excellent - it was our first visit and will definitely be back to eat here. plus side was we went on Tuesday night not even realizing entrees were 1/2 off :) all of the staff was super attentive as well - do not find that these days at many restaurants.
Brandywine Valley Restaurant Week enticed us here. Superb 3-course dinner. Mark was great with precise timing. Marvelous creations on the regular menu as well.
We are never disappointed with V&M. The food is creative, fresh and made with love! The service is always excellent. Even the bar is fun - just wish it was bigger. We never mind paying a little extra for fantastic food, friendly service and a nice, comfortable atmosphere. V&M is a little neighborhood gem!
We make the 45 mile trip to V&M Bistro at least once a month, and have never regretted making the trip. Their food is always outstanding. This particular trip was during Brandywine Valley Restaurant Week, and we were not disappointed with the selection that was available on their prefix menu. There were four of us, and we all had different dishes, all of which were excellent, at a very reasonable price. Everyone we have taken to this establishment have returned on their own.
The food is kind of pricey but the portions are large. Definitely worth it.
Each visit exceeds previous experience.
Friendly place with nice atmosphere and good waitstaff. Bread is kind of blah and a bit too pricey.
While, we have dined here on numerous occasions with excellent service, THIS EVENING, the service was the worst we have ever experienced in a restaurant of this caliber. We waited approximately 45 minutes for bread to be placed on the table, all the while we watched salads and meals served to the other diners seated after us receive their orders.
Our dinner, a Caesar Salad with Chicken and an evening special pasta dish took 45 minutes after we ordered to be placed on the table. We should have walked out, but did not!!!!!
Sadly, we will not dine here again!!!!
This place has amazing food for sure, no complaints there. It was very loud though, so I think it’s unnecessary to have the waiters tell you about things on the menu, especially having to recite the entire dessert meal (no dessert menu) when it’s a struggle to hear them. The waiter was pleasant but not exactly attentive. At the end of the day, we’d still go back. Their homemade pasta, mozzarella and bread was so delicious.
As always a total gem of a place. Outstanding cocktails, beautiful, and unbelievably tasty food... outstanding all around. Totally suggest!
I’ve wanted to go since it opened. So glad when I met a friend on ladies night. We sat at the bar great lemon 🍋 tini. My seafood linguini was wonderful. The service was spot on. Totally enjoyed my night. Taking everyone back to enjoy.
Absolutely delicious cuisine. Many choices. We will be back. Fine Italian dining for reasonable prices.
New apppetizer delicious! Pizza crust just perfect.
I do not often give reviews..
But I was extremely IMPRESSED!
Outstanding food..flavor freshportions and price..
Absolutely looking to go again!
We were pleasantly surprised to find V&M Bistro in North Wilmington, DE. The majority of the menu is created from in-house made ingredients (ravioli, gnocchi, etc). Definitely a great local spot for a nice Italian dinner and we had excellent service from the cocktails at the bar (MUST TRY THE LIMONCELLO ICE MARTINI!!) and dinner table service from Erick!
Food and service (Eric) was amazing! Our only complaint is the acoustics in the small side room where we sat. It was hard to hear during conversation.
The service was very good, the server very knowledgeable. The food was beautifully plated.
Chef Boyardee. Not even the bread was good. Enough said.
Very good over all experience.
My husband and I went to an early dinner on a Friday night. We have dined here a few times. We had a reservation because it can fill up quickly. The service is always outstanding. We were greeted at the door and seated near the window.
We ordered Pellegrino water, since I'm pregnant and can't get a drink. But their wine selection is good.
I got the gnocchi with meat sauce. It was tasty and served within a timely manner. My husband got the special, which was a chicken ravioli with cream sauce. He liked his meal, the ravioli was fresh.
For dessert, I got the lemon sherbert that is in one of the martinis. I'm lactose intolerant and it's the only thing I can have. It's good and doesn't hurt me. My husband got a chocolate mousse pie that he really liked.
The ambiance is romantically lit and we like it as a date spot.
Lemoncello delicious! Fine chicken marsala. Friends enjoyed their salmon dish and pizza.
As usual, the food was on par and well prepared. Never disappointed with any selections. Wait staff was attentive and meal was properly spaced. Will return.
Delicious and fresh Italian food, highly recommend!
I absolutely love this place! We never have any issues here. All the servers are fantastic! This time we had Erik, who was awesome! Thanks!
We were celebrating a graduation and it was a perfect setting. The food was delicious, the service was exceptional and a wonderful time was had by all. We highly recommend this little gem!
A+ Eric is an excellent server and great at multitasking.
Great experience! Food was awesome and Service even better! We will be back for sure!
Great place to eat. Service is the AMAZING
We experienced exceptional service along with a wonderful meal. We started the Grilled Griglia and a Caesar salad. This was follow by quite tender Veal Contadina and one the specials for the evening Pork Loin that was outstanding.
The food and drinks were delicious and our service was spectacular.
This little bistro is unassuming from the street, but one inside you quickly realize how much of a gem V&M is. The best cioppino I have ever had, that wasn't on the west coast. We will be back.
My date and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening at V&M Bistro last Saturday evening. We arrived on time and were seated immediately. The setting is modern and refined, with a fireplace adding to the ambiance. Our waitress introduced herself (darn I wish I could remember her name, she was awesome) offered us water and said she would come back in a few minutes, which she did. We ordered drinks (Moscow Mule for me, Limoncello Martini for my date) which were awesome. Although antipasti selections on the menu looked awesome decided to skip them in order to save room for dinner. My date opted for the Salmon A La Mugnaia, a seared salmon in white wine sauce. I chose a chef's special, Icelandic Cod served with a sauce of Kalamata Olive, Capers and Cherry Tomatoes. Both items were absolutely perfectly prepared and tasted outstanding. We decided to go with the Liquid Diet for dessert - another Limoncello Martini apiece. Kudos to the entire Carrieri-Russo family. We even enjoyed a tableside chat with Mama herself. I can't wait to try some of the antipasti, salads, and other entree options. We will return. And bring friends!
This was a very pleasant dining experience. The food was both aesthetically appealing as well as delicious. Our waiter was warm, friendly and most accommodating. We will return!
We travel the hour from our home to V&M Bistro about once a month. We have never been disappointed with their menu items or specials, and the service has always been excellent. I will also add that they make their own bread and their Limoncello Ice Martini is a must to be tried.
Overall a very good meal. Started with cocktails and appetizer. Both were done well and arrived timely. We have been here before several times but it has been a bit. When they initially opened we had a bottle of wine (Freakshow) that was very reasonably priced. The next time it had gone up by about $10/bottle. We were surprised to find it now up another $20.
Both our entrees were done well and I got the veal parm which as expected was AMAZING. The second time I have had it and melted in your mouth with a great crisp exterior. Wifes steak was done well also. The wine arrived after our meals which was slightly disappointing.
I was surprised that on a Friday at 630-8 range it was not more crowded.
We’ve been going to V&M since they opened and I’m happy to say the service and food have remained top-notch. I recommend everything — but I love when they have the eggplant special — absolutely divine! The wine selection is excellent and the breads for the table are awesome. The only bad thing is that I don’t have time to eat there more often.
I cannot say enough about V&M. The food is always out of this world, service amazing and drinks are delicious!!!!
Every generation can enjoy something spectacular here!! Absolutely love going here!
Food was tasteless. Service was almost non-existent. Prices are absorbent. Save your time and money.
It's always a nice time
My experience at this restaurant was exceptional. I had been recommended this place from a health inspector. She had said it’s one of the cleanest restaurants around and it absolutely was. Not only that, their drinks were delicious and would make me want to come back for those alone. Even more so was the taste and quantity of food. I personally had the Cioppino. It was a seafood lovers dream and had enough for me to take some back home. Finally, their service was excellent. The server was extremely friendly and helpful throughout the night.
I would recommend this place to anyone, especially since Tuesday nights now offer half priced entrees to ladies. Great Service, Great Food, Great drinks.
