The food was tasty, but it wasn't "finger licking good". The servings were not much larger than the "taster cups" at Trader Joe's. The seating was purposelessly uncomfortable - bar seating with no bar(?) - come on!!. - you just want us outta there don't you? The stupidly officious wait staff, couldn't stop pulling plates off the table when there was still a bit of the paltry servings on the plate. They actually had to be reminded that one doesn't take food from a dog unless they know them. Horridly noisy and full of delighted fools, being delightfully ripped off. The absolute worst in portions - appetizers no bigger than teaspoon could hold and entrees the size of - maybe - two table spoons. Again, tasty, but after you leave you will want to grab a meal.

With a front high tabled bar area, short hallway past the open kitchen and a more capacious back room, with aged dark wood planks cover the walls, this is a splendid spot for a different vision of dining. The menus are brief (less than 10 entrees), but each of the items well conceived and executed. The brunch items are fascinating. The grits with sausage and shrimp topped with diagonally sliced scallions is a perfectly balanced journey of flavors and textures. The tart: on lightly toasted pastry with caramelized onion, bacon, and egg was another great dish. The sides that accompany offer further opportunities to flex more flavor into the mix. And even though the wine list is short, it is - like the menu, the selection is wonderful. If you're looking for deliciously different, give The V a see, the food it A+.

My husband and I are craft beer drinkers so we went here for the beer and food -- both disappointments. First, both of our beers tasted off -- possibly a result of dirty lines. My main beef was the service. Our waiter took forever to come over -- no main reason for this since the place was not busy. He did not smile or say hello, just blandly looked down at his notepad and asked for our orders. He didn't follow up at any point to see if we needed anything. Had to ask waitress for salt, pepper and ketchup. He acted too bored or cool to deal with us. After he delivered our check he kept passing by our table and hovering over, waiting for us to pay. We still had part of our beers to finish and weren't in a rush. Funny, he wasn't that attentive when we needed anything. The food was mediocre - not worth $22/plate. We won't be going back.

Went for brunch with a large group and was very impressed with the quality of the food. The prix fixe brunch is a terrific deal - beignet, entree, side of house-made sausage or bacon, a drink (fresh OJ, bellini) plus stumptown coffee. We also ordered a couple of appetizers which were quite good. House-made ginger ale and lemonade were terrific. The service was friendly and laid-back, but they could have done a better job of clearing empty glasses/dishes and keeping the water coming.

20$ Pre-Fixe Brunch is a good deal with coffee and a cocktail. The atmosphere can't be denied. I have had a few mediocre experiences here in the past but it seems they are working to correct pricing and portion issues. At this point, at least with brnch pre-fixe, they seem to have gotten it right. Service has always been good here.

Absolutely loved the atmosphere, great selection of draft beers and excellent service. Try the blood sausage, the brussel sprouts, the fennel salad and ALL of the desserts! Will definately go back...wish I lived closer.

I love this place. My favorite dish is the blood sausage. You can't go wrong with this restaurant.
