Diner Reviews
  • "We've visited here several times and usually enjoy ourselves. That wasn't the case on this visit. Our waiter seemed to be new. He had to read verbatim the few specials, couldn't describe them, and didn't seem to have any "rhythm" to the way he took care of us. Sometimes he checked back too frequently, other times he ignored is for way too long. Above all, I think he forgot to submit our food order to the kitchen. It took forever, when the restaurant was half full, and no explanation was provided - only repeated apologies. Despite all that, the food was good. Though, the menu is som"

  • "On a beautiful Saturday evening, all local neighborhood families with their kids and dogs descended upon The Lafayette Village Grill to enjoy hamburgers, salads, wings, and typical bar fare - nothing outstanding or SPECIAL to recommend - just a real friendly neighborhood get-together grill open to families and their pets and anyone who wants to smoke outside while dining - UGH!!!"

  • "The restaurant was ready and waiting for my big night. The food was incredible and the wine list was robust. Thank You Village Grill for helping to make the night perfect. Oh by the way she said "Yes"!"

  • "This was our second visit to Village Grille in Lafayette Village. We had the Memphis Burger this visit, which was enjoyable overall; however, the BBQ sauce was a little too sweet for our tastes. We also had tres leches cake for dessert. We enjoyed it on our first visit as well. It is delicious, but the piece this time was half the size of the one we had last time and had very little whipped cream on top. Don't know if this was a slip up or if this is the way they are serving it these days."

  • "We took a group of 9 to brunch after a special event. The back room works well for large groups, but can be a little noisy with multiple large tables. However, this is fine if you have kids in your party and aren't expecting something more sedate or formal. Food was good and service was good. Prices are average. Not blown away, but no complaints either. Overall, we had a good experience that met all our needs."

  • "This is a sports bar and not much more. I ordered the pork chop with roasted brussel sprouts and cheese grits. The grits were horrible, very dry. When I asked if they had some that were freshly made, I got some swimming in butter and orangish grease - which what I believe was the seasoning from the shrimp and grits with chorizo - still the grits were tasteless. The Tres Leche cake was two squares of dry cake with whipped cream plated in a tasty vanilla sauce. The grill was very crowded following a St. Pat's day event and March Madness - this place may be good for a burger and a beer, but not dinner."

  • "We dine here frequently as it is one of our favorites. It is close to our home and in goof weather, fun to eat outside. They have great barbecue and hamburgers. My grandson thinks they have the best French fries. The service is always good and on weekends it can be crowded and noisy with lots of TVs and cheering spectators/diners."

  • "Too crowded, too loud, terrible service. If you can sit in the main dining area, it would be fine, but if they offer you the back room - don't do it! We were packed in so tight that a waitress hit me in the back of the head several times while serving the table next to us. My water glass was empty when my entree arrived and wasn't filled until after I had finished eating. The noise level was completely intolerable and we were unable to have a conversation. Might be OK if you don't get stuck in the back room, but we will not be back to this restaurant."

  • "We dined at Lafayette Village Grill Friday night and had a great time and a great meal. The food was delicious - 4 of us had burgers. Everything was great including the service."

  • "Service was outstanding because the waiter knew the menu, made helpful suggestions, and had an upbeat personality. The food was better than expected. We had the shrimp and grits and fried chicken sandwich, highly recommend both. Flavorful and creative and the quality of products was evident with each bite. It may have been our first visit, but definitely not the last."

  • "Made reservations although on a Monday night none were needed, We normally go here in the warmer months and enjoy the outdoor seating. Good selections on the menu. It is more a burger/sandwich restaurant to me. We opted for the special which was Mai Mai and it was quite good but pricey for this restaurant you just do not expect to pay $17 for an entree. We definitely will go back but much prefer outside seating here."

  • "I took my wife here to eat for her birthday on a Sunday afternoon. We were impressed with the decor and feel of The Village Grill right away. There are several large screen televisions that are situated around the large bar area that can be seen from nearly anywhere in the restaurant. However, our waitress - though nice - was not attentive AT ALL (we had to wave her down for refills from across the restaurant - she never came around to check on us once we got our food) and the food was subpar (for example: I requested my steak medium rare but it was well done and tasted slightly overcooked). I would like to think that this was just an off-night."

  • "We live close to Lafayette Grill and love to eat there for lunch or dinner. It is our grandson's favorite, too. He thinks they have the best French fries and their cheeseburgers are an 11 on a scale of 1-10. It is a bit noisy with all the TVs on different channels, but I suppose that is what most folks like. We are not a big fan of the noise because it keeps conversation difficult."

  • "This restaurant has a great atmosphere- comfortable seating, and good service. When they first opened- they had a much better menu and better qualilty food. However, the food has really gone down hill. We are very disappointed- as we used to love this place."

  • "Setting and ambience was great. The service was very good and we enjoyed our selves. There are two main dining areas - an open bar and individual table area, as well as a PDR (Private Dining Room) which is open if there is no reserved/large party. The PDR has a gas fire place which adds a nice touch, however, beware that there appear to be some loud small groups on the room - they should have stayed in bar area......Otherwise, fun, reasonably prices, nice neighborhood area to attend."

  • "The Lafayette Village Grill is a staple of Lafayette Village in North Raleigh. The outdoor seating offers a VERY comfortable dining experience.... Innside however is an altogether different scenario. The atmosphere is noisy (too many hard surfaces) and the layout just doesn't feel comfortable. The staff is well trained, attentive, and professional. The food is consistently above average... not great, not awesome, but above average. The food is fresh and tasty, but not what you would call "foodie" quality. For our family, when weather permits, the outdoor dining is great But if you're relegated to indoor dining, there are much better choices in nearby North raleigh (Winstons being the true bellwether restaurant for example)."

  • "Went for a dinner date, and it suited the occasion nicely. Booth tables are wide, and not conductive to date-night mood due to speaking loudly over noise. Problem solved when we moved to the bar after dinner. There are a lot of TV's here a-la sports bar, so if you seek a quiet, romantic candlelight atmosphere you will be disappointed. Good specialty drink selection."
