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.
Disappointing penne dish - overlooked penne. Given the price, I expected much more.
Excellent service and excellent food. First time dining there and will be returning.
Like always great service and great food.if you have a chance you must try this Restaurant.!!!!!!!
Greaterd at the door w a smile, waiter was knowledgeable and very attentive. Vincenza came to our table to make sure we were happy w service n food. Ladies night 1/2 price for fine dining.
Live music, wonderful cocktails, and delicious food! The staff was very efficient and friendly. I felt like I was a child at my grandmother’s house savoring every mouthful of the Veal Parm. If you were raised eating authentic Italian food this is the place for you!
Our first visit -- a great local bistro and worth the drive for us. The food (seafood salad, baked cod, eggplant parmesan with gnocchi and long-hots) was great and we enjoyed the cozy atmosphere. Loved the Castello Banfi Summus red wine. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Look forward to returning in the near future.
Went to V & M for a girls night with friends and had an amazing dinner. The service was excellent as well as the whole staff. Recommend it all the time to family and friends.
Love the owners and the staff! Always a pleasant experience.
Delightful. Enjoyed three original dishes on Friday night and started with two great appetizers to share. Don't miss the chance to get their clams white (with sweet sausage) swimming in a broth that begs to have every piece of bread you can get your hands dipped into pure deliciousness. The arancini rice balls are always on point. They come three to an order, they're composed of deep fried risotto, mozzarella and sweat garden peas - and these treats are perfect for sharing, served in some Sunday gravy and grated cheese. The dinners included the Monte & Mare a unique fresh pasta dish with calamari, mussels and clams with broccoli rabe in a decadent champagne blush sauce. The salmone alla mugnaia - was a choice filet of salmon perfectly cooked and served atop their home made #26 spaghetti in a great lemon and white wine blush sauce. I chose a special - the seafood risotto which was a very generous portion with shrimp, scallops, broccoli rabe and sun-dried tomatoes. Decadent. Great food expertly prepared and delightful service makes for a wonderful evening. A great reason to cross the state line and dine tax free!
Had a great meal. Veal parmesan is awesome. Great drink menu and service was wonderful
Christmas Eve special dinner. Everyone wax very accommodating and friendly. Truly enjoyed our meal.
We went for their 7 fishes Xmas eve dinner and were disappointed. The food was not correctly seasoned and therefore, rather bland. The tomato sauce served with the first course was bland and cold. We asked for some warm marinara or pizza sauce or at least cocktail sauce for the Calimari and smelts, and the waiter said there would be an up charge. This is an Italian restaurant, folks.
My husband had to ask for sweetener and milk for his tea multiple times before he was served. Our waiter poured water for one person and didn’t ask me if I wanted a top off.
There were THREE TVs showing White Xmas on mute (thank goodness) in the tiny side room where we were seated. Distracting and overkill to say the least.
We’ve been here several times before for meatballs, Sunday sauce, octopus and broccoli rabe.
We’ll be back for that, but not for any special occasion.
This restaurant is fabulous. My friends and I have been going here for our annual Holiday get together. Good food, great atmosphere and good company makes for a great dining experience!
While unassuming from the outside, this is a really awesome restaurant. The portions, quality, and ambiance are excellent, and the staff is very pleasant. Highly recommend!
Highly recommend this neighborhood gem Menu is fantastic service is excellent portion sizes are generous And a lovely ambience
The best Italian in the area with authentic food and homemade pasta ,they have great service and are very accommodating,would recommend for anyone wanting a great dinning experience.
