Buddy V's at The Venetian Ratings and Reviews
Food is tasty. Only complaint would be that a couple of the "fresh fruit" in our dessert was not fresh. Everything else was great. The hostess was amazing and accommodating. Our waitress gave the best service and suggestions without being pushy. Our water was always being refilled without having to ask. I was completely impressed by the phenomenal service we received at this restaurant.
Stopped in for lunch and shared two appetizers and dessert. We had the eggplant parm and grandmas meatballs. A wonderful combination though it would have been better if we had also ordered the grilled garlic bread to sop up the delicious sauce! But no bread meant we had room for dessert. We ordered the Buddy V’s birthday cake. This sums up why he is the cake boss. It was an amazing choice and the right size to share. Don’t skip this when you dine there!
The hostess forgot we had already checked in so we were sitting at the bar for awhile. Not a huge deal but it was the first part of an otherwise meh dining experience. Clearly our server was slammed in her section. It was completely full so I sympathize but generally someone jumps in to help get drink orders, etc. Drinks took forever, checking in on the food took a long time..
Octopus was delicious and the broth was amazing! Scallops were a little undercooked and my husband's steak was way overcooked. Having said that, they graciously offered to fix his steak, and they did, and the second version was cooked a perfect medium rare.
All in all, I suppose we just expected better service in a restaurant of this caliber, and since it was our only dinner stop in Vegas (quick in and out trip) we were disappointed and thought we should have chosen somewhere else..
We always have Brunch at Buddy V's anytime we are in Vegas. They have a buffet...but its not the typical Vegas Buffet. This is high quality, delicious food that leaves you feeling like you just left an Italian wedding. Its not about the number of choices.... its about quality. Amazing food and amazing service.
We went to this restaurant to celebrate a 50th birthday. Party of five. It said this on our reservation and the hostess noted this and said happy birthday. Surprised that our waitress in no way acknowledged we were there for special occasion.
The food was incredible. All the service from the guys bringing out the food and refilling our drinks and clearing our table was fantastic. Felt like the waitress was not into it that night. Wouldn't stop me from recommending your restaurant but wouldn't suggest it for a special occasion.
We were celebrating a birthday & they were very considerate providing a very nice tiramisu cake for the birthday girl. The wine was expensive & the draft beer also very expensive although they gave us boxed Buddy V pilsner glasses for "free".
Everyone in our party thought the food was outstanding & we are very particular about our Italian meals.
The desserts provided by Carlos Bakery were also outstanding.
Great ambiance. We dined at 4:30 so it was quiet. But the table spacing was nice.
They have different menus for the various times of day. Definitely we will return!
Mi esposo y yo disfrutamos del Brunch del domingo y puedo decir que estuvo ESPECTACULAR! Las opciones de comida son de excelente calidad y cantidad. El bottomless mimosa -ademas de otras opciones de bebidas- es una excelente opción. Volveremos!!!
We were on a family girls' trip to celebrate our moms' milestone birthday (they're twins!) and found Buddy V's online, while looking for an Italian restaurant near where we were staying . I made a reservation using Open Table - it was so easy! And I simply made a comment on the reservation about celebrating a birthday and at the end of our delicious meal, our waiter brought out 2 beautiful desserts for our moms! The food was fabulous, the view was spectacular and it was a wonderful way to kick off our long weekend!
