We ordered drinks (pina colada for me and Bellini for my husband). My pina colada tasted like it was mix and rum, there absolutely no slush to it and my husband's drink tasted like the bar ran out of bellini mix and used whatever leftover bellini mix there was and topped it off with strawberry daiquiri. It was extremely off-putting. Let's move onto appetizers, we ordered the oysters. The waitress brought the oysters and I was immediately smacked in the face with an off-putting fishy aroma which signaled to me that the oysters may not have been as fresh as they should have. Not only that, the shells had not been cleaned so every time we picked up an oyster, our hands got covered in dirt, sand and grit. I ordered the NY Strip and my husband ordered the top sirloin; both medium rare. Not only was the cook on both steaks wrong but when I sent mine back they undercooked it (it was almost blue, which I suppose is better than overcooked) and yet they somehow managed to burn the outside of it. By the time the re-fire came back, my husband had already finished his meal and his plate was cleared, so he literally sat there and watched me eat. Our sides were just as disappointing as the proteins. I ordered the baked potato and my husband ordered the fries. My baked potato was severely bland and had barely any cheese on it. My husband's fries were so salty they were inedible. At this point, I was ready to just pay our bill and leave when one of the servers brought out a free slice of chocolate torte because it was my 30th birthday. We decided to try it and that was also a mistake. It tasted like freezer burn through and through. I think the thing that stung the most and left such a bitter taste in my mouth about your restaurant was that there wasn't even an attempt made to apologize for any of it. At most other restaurants I've been to, when a meal is screwed up that badly, the plate is comped or discounted in the very least.

We definitely won't be back!

Had an amazing dinner with drinks! Service was great! Our oysters were a little underwhelming small and flat but my delicious main made up for it

They need to get a handle on their wine prices. That will sink them.
Also, no beer specials at Happy Hour??? Really???? Unheard of

Poor service, steak was over cooked. Tried telling us that the initial table bread was “Yorkshire crisps” . The broccoli wasn’t cooked and Demi glaze tasted like gravy. Gave us a dessert menu then never seen us again. Used to be one of our favourite spots but will not be going back.

Came for Easter dinner. Very lovely meal , great service. We were asking questions as I hadn’t been there in years. Our server had the owner come to our table, we were offered a tour. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and would live to come back.

Excellent everything, from prompt seating to attentive waitstaff. The latte and Calamari were excellent Apps for a memorable meal. The Prime Rib was heavenly, cooked to perfection, and possibly the best prime rib I have ever eaten. The wait staff was attentive and the top drawer all around. 5 out of 5 easily. Just one thing that needs to be improved is the Calamari portion is a kinda small, other than that all is great

Wow what a great meal. We went here for our Anniversary and the food and service were excellent. Saeowty she was our server and she was sweet to us , she seems new but she ensured we were taken care of. The food was very hot and great tasting. We had such a great time on our 29th Anniversary. We will be coming back and we highly recommend Vons .

We have been going to Vons for years and had always
loved it. It had been some time since we had been in (we moved) and have been twice since the restaurant reopened in February. First visit wasn’t great but we chalked that up to working the bumps back out since being able to reopen. We returned and found that things hadn’t improved.
It’s the little things like creamed / from a jar horseradish vs fresh. The au jus with the prime rib looks and tastes like it came from a packet as do the mashed potatoes. Service could use a little polishing up as well ( bringing courses prior to clearing previous dishes, no taste of the wine before pouring a glass etc).
The quality of the experience had dropped. The price point has not.

We showed up a bit later in the evening. Around 9pm with no reservation but manager was nice and he welcomed us even it was after 9pm and they closed by 10pm , Usually by this time there's no restaurants open or even sale prim ribs, I was looking for Prime rib left somewhere but Vons has plenty. I ordered the 14oz because I was savagely hungry. I'm not exactly sure what actually showed up but I wish I took a picture. It was enormous and delicious. If you don't like your beef too rare then I'd suggest ordering med but I didn't mind the rare slice of prime rib that showed up. And the horse radish... Its been a while since I've come across a good strong horse radish. There were tears and loss of breath a few times. It was awesome. I usually go to Vons for oyster and the service now is crazy good , Hopefully if I come later again one night they'll be trying to off load some more prime rib again.

I love the prime ribs. We were surprise with how tender it is, the spices is not strong so I'm fine with it. I'm not a picky person I appreciate every food they served us. Thida is so naïve yet she has a good service.

We are back after a heavy experienced of Pandemic that affects most of the people. I am almost a year stayed home and not quite going out for safety purposes. As we love Von's before, we still love it until now. The ambiance is so relaxing while having food and drink. They still have their oak barrels and the blinking lights that makes them the antique style restaurant. We are not so young so we really like these kinds of places. Will be back again, dunno when but definitely yes!
