Time and time again, always great service, food, and cocktails. This is the place I take family and friends visiting when I want to "show off" my town, Murphys. And my guest always leave with a big satisfying smile and a little envy.

We happened to choose a night the restaurant is not open. So they recommend the bar. The bar was out of food choices. We started with a cheese tray for approximately $15.00+ and when they brought it, the nuts were not available (no substitue offered), out of the two additional cheese offerings they substituted all plain Cheddar.Out of cheese too....

The hamburgers - Oh Yumm! The fries - to die for! The patio is so lovely much of the year - the inside is charming - I keep thinking I will try something else, but am always drawn back to the hamburger and fries - just in a rut, I guess. No - just Loove those burgers and Truffle fries!

Two restaurants, side by side. The V and The V Bistro. Outdoor patio with fountain. Always enjoyed my meals there. The Bistro is more casual, where my friends meet. Devils on Horseback...cheese stuffed dates wrapped in bacon...be sure to share them, very rich! Great fish tacos, great fish n chips includes wasabi coleslaw...yum. Highly recommended!

We really like the V Bistro Bar -- sit outside and enjoy wine weather good and company. Food is always tasty but the Niçoise at $17 could use more than 3 pieces of tuna -- small pieces at that. Would have gotten 4 stars except for that.

I love staying at the Victoria Inn and eating at the V Restaurant & Bar. Wonderful food for an appetizer and drink, full meal, or catered event. I recommend eating and stay here anytime you are in the area, or making it a destination, especially for wine lovers. The historical Gold Rush era foothill community is a bustling wine country.

Service impeccable. We sat inside as we felt the patio was a little too hot. Food was served promptly and in order. Based on earlier reviews I went for the deep fried olives. Changed my life with regard to how to eat olives! Main was the clams and mussels - very good. Wife had the salmon. Excellent. Like this place.

Our trip was for our anniversary and we arrived into town just in time for dinner. We looked at a few menus and nothing jumped out at us until we stopped at V. We were able to be seated immediately and started with a lovely appetizer of bacon wrapped figs stuffed with cheese. It was cooked perfectly on the inside,... More

I have eaten at V's a number of times, and never have been disappointed. The food is always well prepared and the choices are always good. The only hitch to V's is their price. If you are willing to pay a pretty hefty price (for Murphys) for good food, this is your place
