Great atmosphere, service, and food

My brother took us here when we visited him, and we couldn't be happier. The atmosphere was cozy and ambient and the server was attentive and very polite. The food was fantastic and the rum cake they serve as an added bonus with meals was soooo good- it's now my new favorite cake :).

For the second straight year, we chose to have our Christmas dinner at V's. The private room was beautifully set. We had our own waiters that gave us great service. The food was excellent, as usual. We had a wonderful time. Love V's! Also love their house drink; Wicky Wacky Woo.

Whenever we go to V's it feels like a special occasion. The atmosphere is wonderful. The service is great, and the food is amazing. They have the best red sauce in town. I usually get the lasagne or the chicken spedeni. A well stocked bar and great wine list make the evening complete. Their lunch buffet is always the best... More

Took the family to V's yesterday for Sunday brunch while celebrating a birthday. The buffet choices were great, the pasta delicious and the deserts to die for - lol. This was our first visit but we will definitely be going back even if it is a bit of a drive for us.

We were there for a surprise birthday party a short time ago. V's did a wonderful job with setting up the room and with the food. Decor is nice. Everything tasted good & all the food was the right temperature which is difficult to do when serving a buffet. Excellent job!

We went for brunch and it was very pretty, the seating was private, and the food looked very nice. Quarters were close in the brunch line, but what I tasted was good. I wouldn't rank it really, really high, there are other places that I really love, but it was good and my it's my son's girlfiend's favorite place.

This is our once a week dining habit. The restaurant provides a nice cross section of Italian and American fare. Steaks and Baked Potatoes and Veal Parmigianino. Everything is reasonably priced and most evening you'll find "Momma V" dining along with you. What can be a better recommendation.

You have to be willing to spend about $30 a head, which is a killer for a small family in Independence. It's aimed towards the middle classed retirees.
