I had one of the best steaks I can remember recently. My boyfriend and I shared the porterhouse for two and it was sublime (I did my happy dance while eating it). They brought out a giant platter with the huge steak (cooked perfectly, so tender) with fresh vegetables and smashed fingerling potatoes, and a few different sauces to choose from.
Even the bread with olive oil and balsamic before the meal was amazing, easily the best balsamic/oil combo I ever had.
Unbelievable. We were blessed to have Mary (the owner) waite on us. Amazing food, great service, and a great ambiance. I will be back! I would strongly recommend that you request Mary. Lovely lady....
I will definitely but returning as there were other items on the menu which I would like to try.
We had not been here for a while and we were so happy to find that it was even better than we remembered. Service and food were excellent from cocktails to dessert for our table of 5 celebrating the holiday season. We had the date appetizer, beet salad, pan-roasted chicken, special ravioli with chicken, steak frite, and osso bucco, all delicious, beautifully served and reasonably priced. We can't wait to go back, no need to wait for a special occasion.
I ate here while staying at the Victoria Inn; strongly recommend both. Creative food, excellent wine list (with a lot of local Sierra Nevada flavor), and terrific staff.
We went midweek in October and were nearly the only people in the restaurant. The food was excellent - I had the savory pork chop and my husband had the lamb chop special. Both were fantastic. Service was wonderful too. Overall a lovely evening.
Pleasantly surprised by the quality of food, the service and the restaurant.
V is the place to go in Murphys - by the locals and tourists alike. The bar is a popular spot with the bartender doing a fabulous job of mixing up some killer martinis.
Four of us dined at the restaurant on a busy Saturday night. Our server did an excellent job of pacing our courses so that we had time to enjoy ourselves and our meal. We enjoyed a variety of their small plates and dinner entrees and everything was superb.
If you are ever in Murphy, be sure and visit V Restaurant & Bar. This restaurant was recommended to us by a complete stranger. We were there on a Sunday about 1:00 pm. Very charming, small and quaint. The passion fruit martini is to die for. The restaurant has actually won an award for their drink mixes. They make all the mixes for their cocktails and they are really delicious. My spouse had the bloody mary and it was totally different from anything he had ever had. The food was delicious as well. Preparation and presentation are fabulous. Service excellent. Definitely would go back.
We saw the November review and were disheartened to think that one of our favorite restaurants was failing. We did additional research and ended up talking to the ownership. We found that a temporary chef was in charge in late October and November and that the new permanent chef was now on duty. We made the decision to try the new chef and menu and were NOT DISAPPOINTED. The staff (although very young) are being well trained. They were attentive and other than minor lapses (like not having the special offerings memorized quite accurately) were attentive and friendly. The menu was very interesting and had a number of our favorites still on the menu. We had the mushroom salad and the roasted brussel sprouts as our first course. We had the rack of lamb which was prepared perfectly and scollops with soft polenta (both of which were perfect - not easy for either item). The portions were ample - we were not able to fit dessert into the plan.
The restaurant is back to old standards and we will definitely be going back in the future.
Ate inside on Sat. Excellent food. Ate at a table in the bar area, and acoustics there made it hard to hear, but the food and service more than made up for this. Request a table in the main room when you make a reservation or outside if its a warm evening. Our waitress was excellent and also made drinks for other staff as necessary. She was busy, busy!! This is a place to have small plates and graze, in my opinion, so you can try a bit of everthing
