My wife and I have appreciated the food and service at V's for years, but a recent change in their menu prompted me to jot down this review.

Went for a business lunch and left sorely disappointed. The waitress was quite nice but overworked even though the restaurant was not packed. I opted for the special buffet but really nothing special about it. The meatballs and ravioli were cold and bland. The corned beef was disappointing as well. It is still an old standby for many loyal customers... More

Not a bad thing on the menu! Great wine! Great atmosphere! We enjoy the booths in the back for a more romantic evening. Their brunch is awesome as well.

V's has become one of our favorite spots in Kansas City for a variety of dining experiences. My wife and I enjoy our quiet dinners alone, as well as with larger groups. Yesterday, V's hosted a group of 28 from my high school graduating class in one of their private rooms for a luncheon. This was our 3rd time together... More

Lately, there has been multiple articles written in the local newspaper regarding iconic Kansas City restaurants being closed...Golden Ox, Italian Gardens, Jennie’s Italian Restaurant, New York Bakery & Delicatessen, Putsch’s 210, Romanelli Grill and Stephenson’s Old Apple Farm to name a few. I believe one of the biggest reasons these restaurants close is the ever-increasing age of the patrons the... More

I eat here regularly but had not tried the lunch buffet until yesterday. There was more variety than I anticipated, considering how small an area the buffet takes up. The lasagna should have been warmer but, aside from that, it was all good. I was especially pleased to see the toasted ravioli included.

After reading all of the reviews and eating there several times I think it's just a preference. I think this is a great place. If it is dated its a good time period. I go to eat not look at fru fru. The staff is on top of the game. The food is wonderful and comes quick. Now if you... More
