    The Village Tavern Scottsdale is one of those places that you never stop visiting. We've lived in Scottsdale five years and probably visit the restaurant twice a month for dinner. It is especially welcoming to families with children, particularly because the noice of the crowd in this very large restaurant tends to drown out the noice of one's children. The food is very good, and the service always is courteous. The restaurant is especially nice in the winter, when the enormous fireplace is ablaze.

  • I was really disappointed
    RestaurantLover
    Dined on 5/16/2008
    I was really disappointed in the service this time. We have been to VT many times, and we took a couple who had never been there before, highly promoting the restaurant (so it was embarrassing). Service was very slow and it was not because it was real crowded (6:30 res on a Fri). Multiple times we had to flag down the waiter to get service. And this was after we had to rebook our res from our original res at VT thru OpenTable because our original confirmed res was the weekend of Super Bowl. When I called to verbally confirm the res the wk before, the manager had to tell me they could not accomodate our res that wkend. So the whole experience left a bad taste in our mouths. Not sure we will go back again.

    A varied menu for almost any taste. The food is always high quality and presented well. The staff is extremely friendly, courteous, and always there to be helpful. Mostly high, large booths for privacy and easy conversation. One of our favorite restaurants.

    Pleasantly surprised how good the food was. It wasn't like a typical chain resturant AT ALL! We had people in from out of town and were reluctant to try somewhere new but we were so glad we did!! Everyone raved about the food from the best calamari appetizer to the most unbelievable banana crepe icecream dessert and everything in between. We literally loved it all. In fact we said we are making Village Tavern a "must do" everytime these friends come to town;)

    Dined on 4/24/2008
    our experience was overall outstanding. The wait staff was polite but did not know much about the menu or cocktails. She normally worked lunch time and not during dinner hours. Our booth was spacious and it was an enjoyable evening with friends. The prime rib is highly recommended and it was truly outstanding.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 4/18/2008
    The only thing I didnt like about my dinner at Village Tavern was out waiter, he seemed new and out of place. For as nice as a place as it was I felt ignored and I am NOT a needy customer. But the food was AMAZING and at a great price! And it was kinda nice being left alone enjoying eachothers company. Overall it was a little louder then most nice resturants but we were there during the dinner rush. Over all a very pleasurable experence.

    Dined on 4/12/2008
    We go to eat here often and the sauces on two of our plates were very scimpy this time. The presentation of the food and sauces which give them flavor were not done in the same way they have been in the past. All in all still a very good experience. I would like to see more consistency in service and food preparation.

    Food was OK. Requested wine not available (Reisling). Waiter dropped fork and tipped wine glass. No concern about splashing wine on our clothes. Requested condiments slow arriving. Had to call waiter to order wine after dinner was served. Overall experience was mediocre. Not likely to return.
