    This is a nice casual restaurant. An extensive menu some items are very good some just fair. I would stick to the basics like ribs and burgers.

    It's not too trendy and not too noisy. I like that you can sit inside for lunch and imagine you're in a steakhouse at night. The food is always great and you can tell that they care about their customers. The drinks were a little late, so the waiter comped them for us. Now that shows they really care about the customer experience. I've settled on the prime rib as my favorite, but my husband ordered a steak sandwich and he thought it was great.

    We are from NJ, and were visiting friends in Scottsdale (stayed at the Gainey Suites Hotel). We had invited a niece (who lives in Mesa), and a great-niece (who lives in Phoenix) to be our guests at dinner, and had no idea where to take them. Since your restaurant is right next to the hotel, we decided to go there. What a delightful place - great menu (something for everyone) - great service, on-time with our reservation, and great food. Thank you. We really were lucky to find you!

    Our first visit was very enjoyable.We had sweet potato fries for an appetizer . They were the best we ever had. We had the chicken spinach salad...delicious. Our guests had fish and chips.Our only recommendation would be to put the fish and chips on a plate instead of the baskets.

    We had Sunday brunch the other day. Two of us had omelets, one had crab cakes Benedict. All of the good was delicious. The omelets were served with country potatoes and fruit, and were made with very little fat. The Benedict was really tasty. We go there for dinner often but this was the first time we went for brunch. I would recommend it for any meal.

    This is a great place to bring friends from out of town. There is a big variety on the menu, and the food is always tasty. The service is also very good. It's always enjoyable and a good value. Wednesdays are 1/2 price wine nights, so it can be really busy (especially during Spring Training and Spring Break), so be sure to make a reservation.

    Somewhere this restaurant was described as upscale casual dining. Through no fault of theirs, the dress code was certainly only casual (at least at the Scottsdale location). The food was really good and the children's menu was great. We would return to this restaurant (especially if you have a picky eater in the party like we often do) but not be concerned with how we were dressed. The waiter was great as well. It is a little bit noisy, but sitting in a booth we didn't notice the chatter too much.

    Dined on 3/9/2014
    Great food , but glass of wine was not and so i sent it back because it was to sweet, and i don't like sweet wines. This is my go to white wine and it didn't taste the same .The waiter recommended another white and brought me a sample which i liked. So I was brought what i thought, was the new glass of white. But I am 100 percent certain they just brought me the same wine that i didn't like back to me. I left a full glass of wine and waiter never asked why. I didn't say anything because we had not seen our friends in 9 yrs and didn't want to make the evening about the wine. You are at their mercy when you order one glass.

    We love this restaurant. The food is excellent. This was the first time we were disappointed. They were out of a number of things we tried to order. It included a brand of wine, a brand of beer, and two entree selections. We will go back, hopefully this was a fluke that so many things were not available.

    It felt like two different restaurants through a one hour lunch. The initial server seemed uninterested in our party. Slow to respond, no smile, etc. Then, after we were served our lunch, a different server took over and was smiling and friendly. Very weird experience. I had the burger which was quite good, except, a lousy mustard. Put mustard and ketchup on the side. Made a great burger just good.

    We have never had a bad meal at the Village Tavern. In fact, we take every out of town visitor we have there for dinner/lunch because of that, and the incredible variety of menu items. I had baby back ribs this last visit, and they were delicious and very reasonably priced. So, Village Tavern, keep up the good work and never change.
