Felt very out of touch with where eateries need to be. Were told they did vege options to be offered 1 dish with the meat removed. Expensive and out of touch in my view.

Very salty food, no kids menu and staff were a little odd. I wouldn't bother going back when there are so many places nearby that are fabulous. Hard to understand how this is number one eatery in hamilton!

Hamilton is reasonably casual throughout but VSB is one of the best restaurants in town. Smart casual, but dress up if you feel like it, it is New Year’s Eve after all!
