  • "Food was excellent but service was a little lacking. Our server was obviously weeded and so we hardly ever saw him although we didn't want for much."

  • "Everyone in our group enjoyed their dinner. Service was good. No complaints."

  • "I consider myself a foodie. Went here for birthday dinner with friends. Food was ok. It's more like a generic tgi Fridays and comparably overpriced. Wouldn't go there for anything more than dinner and drinks for laid back occasion. Plenty of other places to eat for better food and atmosphere."

  • "We can not visit Winston-Salem without having brunch at the Village Tavern (and there are plenty of locals there too). Brunch has always been my favorite meal and Village Tavern does it so well!! With excellent menu selections and specials, it is has something yummy for everyone. Love the mini muffin and fresh fruit that comes with the meals."

  • "Our group of five has adopted Village Tavern as "our place" to meet. We come to Village Tavern from east, west, and north in N.C., driving from 45 minutes up to 1-1/2 hours. Village Tavern's staff is always friendly, professional, and accommodating to our wishes for a leisurely visit with drinks and food and camaraderie. The food is excellent. The wait staff makes us feel special, as though they are thoroughly enjoying making sure that we have a very positive dining experience. This is why Village Tavern has become "our place" when we get together for lunch or dinner."

  • "We went for brunch, 5 people but received only 4 place settings, two of which were dirty. They were very crowded and it was very noisy. The food did not come out at once, so we had to wait on the 5th so the other 4 got cold :( the service was ok, the shrimp and grits were great!"

  • "Husband is burger connassuer and said that was the juiciest burger he's ever had but it was difficult to hear him say that due to large groups around us whooping it up...it was fairly late on Friday night. We were surrounded by 3 different groups celebrating someone's birthday. Service was great. Did seem a little lengthy to get food especially since I ordered tilapia and his burger was bleeding rare. The bread was really good. If wait staff doesn't offer..request it per fine print on menu. Salads were awesome. Apple cobbler..OMG. ..real apples and crumble crust with ice cream and Carmel...phenomenal!!!"

  • "We made a reservation 36 hours ahead of time (for three people), and disappointed that when we arrived on time, that we still had to wait 15 minutes. They weren't that busy, and there were several available tables. The food was still very good, but for a special occasion it started out with the disappointment of having to wait, especially that length of time."

  • "We had a very nice lunch, except for the hostess. I came when my party had already got there and instead of taking me to the table she waived me off and pointed to the direction of where we were to sit, like she didn't have time to bother with me, other than that we had a great experience"

  • "There were three of us for dinner and all of our dinner choices were from different parts of the menu, one person ordered the spinach salad which was fresh and the green apples were crispy and the dressing was the right amount, not dripping all over the plate. another order was the steak and mashed potatoes and salad all were done to perfection with great flavor. the last person ordered the chicken teriyaki in which was cooked perfect, the rice had a great flavor and the snow peas and vegetables on top were aldente. Thank you for a great dinner, We find that every time we go the food is consistently good,"

  • "not so much this night. we waited almost an hour for salads while tables seated after us were served and served and served. Waitress did have a fresh bottle of wine opened for me when I ordered something that she said wasn't a popular by the glass choice. Food was just mediocre this time."

  • "We were seated promptly at a table that we asked for near the fireplace. Service was prompt and friendly and the waiter was quick to tell us the specials. The food was excellent, as usual. Our waiter checked by frequently to see if all was well. Table seating was a little close, but our party of 8 neighbors were courteous and quiet. Our food came in about 10-15 minutes and was hot and aromatic. Wine was good and fairly priced. When ready to leave, our check was taken quickly and we didn't have to wait the usual eternity to pay and go as happens in other restaurants. A nice experience for lunch on a Saturday."

  • "One of party of four ordered the appetizer sampler, thinking erroneously that it would be smaller than an entree,but it was huge. Two crab cakes,spring roll, bruschetta,and calamari. She said it was hard to decide which item tasted the best. Alongside was a selection of four dipping sauces. I had the Marguerita wood- fired pizza...my favorite rendition of this is at VT. The guys both chose the flank steak entree. My husband's arrived somewhat overdone, and was taken back. The perfectly cooked replacement arrived in less than 3 minutes, so we didn't have to delay beginning our meals.At most restaurants, mistakes take a long time to correct. We dine here often, and everytime we go, we are reminded why we keep coming back!"

  • "For a nice place I could not believe how loud it was could not carry on a normal conversation had to talk very loud just to hear across the table. noise level was more like a sports bar than a nice dining experiance!"

  • "My husband and I decided to go to Village Tavern for our first wedding anniversary. We were both very pleasantly surprised by the food and the service. Everyone was friendly and made us feel like we were the only diners there. Our experience started by getting the history of the restaurant which I found to be very interesting and informative. The food was amazing. We had the bacon wrapped scallops, the southern shrimp and grits, and the chicken club followed by the double layer cheesecake. This was by far, our very best dining experience to date. And our evening ended by a surprisingly affordable check. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for great food along with great service. Absolutely amazing!!"

  • "The Village Tavern is our go to spot right now. We just moved to Winston late last year and have been to both locations. The wait staff is always courteous and attentive. The food is always exceptional as well. The menu is diverse but not overwhelming. We celebrated my wife's birthday and had an absolute blast. She had the meatloaf with Marsala gravy. I had the 18oz prime rib. My oldest had the fish and chips while my son had the Cajun seafood fettuccine. Our waiter was awesome. He interacted with everyone including the birthday girl and our 4 year old. That's a plus for me. Our little girl may be 4 but she's well behaved and eats anything that doesn't eat her first. Kids deserve the chance to experience dining out."

  • "I made reservations a week in advance for myself, my husband, and our daughter for the Saturday after Valentine's Day. I know this is a busy weekend for fine dining restaurants, but we waited an hour after our 6:15 reservation to be seated. I would think that a reputable, well-established business like Village Tavern could have done a better job managing table turnover. This has happened the past THREE times we made reservations at this location, which is why we only go about once a year. Next time I'm craving Hot Crab Dip and a Chicken Mexican salad, my husband suggested we call in a to-go order. That's a great idea. I was pleased that pizza appetizers were offered once during our hour-long wait, as my 8-year old daughter was starving."

  • "Had 5pm reservation and was seated at 6. The staff knew that was unacceptable and did all they could to make up for over booking after a bad winter storm the preceding days."

  • "I made reservations through open table for 6:30pm when we arrived we were told they were behind about 30 minutes on reservations. The place was packed and we waited for over 60 minutes for a table we never got one so we decided to eat at the bar area. What a horrible valentine dinner. The people running the hostess area were very rude and didn't seem to care. But our waitress and food were great. We have eaten a bunch times here and it is always a great experience. They should be better prepared for events such as this. Very disappointed!!!!"

  • "We had a 6:15 reservation, and arrived about 5 minutes ahead of our reservation. The host told us that reservations were currently running 15-20 minutes behind, which is understandable and to be expected anytime, and certainly not unusual on a Valentine's Day weekend. After we had waited 25 minutes past our reservation time, I checked, and there were 4 groups from the 6:15 reservation time STILL in front of us. At the 45 minute mark, around 7, the restaurant started bringing out free pizza to those waiting -- to me, that was a bit late in the game to do something of that sort. Folks are now 45+ minutes late for their original time slot. We were seated less than 10 minutes later. The food was fantastic, thankfully."

  • "I made reservations for Valentines day knowing it would be a busy night. When we arrived 15 minutes before our reservation time they told us that they were running 45 minutes behind in seating. So much for reservations.... They gave us a remote pager and we went to the bar for a drink and appetizer. After an hour and no page I inquired at the check in about our status..... Oh, they forgot to page us!!!....... I almost left at that point but decided to not waste the time invested. Fortunately for the restaurant we had an outstanding waiter, I think his name was Julian? Not sure. Anyway, because of him I may go back again, plus the food was very good."

  • "My fiance and I had a 7:30pm reservation on 2-15-14. We arrived at 7:15pm to a packed waiting area. We were simply told that they were an hour behind on their reservations. No explanation was given as to why they were behind. We had to stand and wait in an overcrowded bar area, moving constantly to get out of the way of the staff. There were no managers to be found to try and explain the situation. The host was very rude and dismissive and would not acknowledge the problem. We are frequent customers of Village Tavern and have always had a great experience. We know this is not the normal situation, however we feel it wasn't dealt with properly. We ended up leaving after 20 minutes of waiting and did not even receive an apology from the staff"

  • "The food and atmosphere were great. The service was lacking this time. They were very busy, but normally even when they are busy the service has been good. This is the first time we had this waiter, and he did not seem that interested in us. He gave us everything we needed, but it was just like he did not care that much."

  • "I took my date here for Valentine's Day... With the Open Table reservation we waitied less than 10 mins and were quickly attended to.. Our table was ready and to be honest, we had a great night.. I had the Flank Steak and it was cooked to perfection !! DOn't miss out on the Black Beans !!! AMAZING !!! Made with chocolate and chipotle.. with a hint of sweetness and a touch of spice... THE BEST ive ever had !! Very Original !! and i am cuban ! LOL ... Would recommend without hesitation ..."

  • "This was a great Valentines Day disappointment for my wife and I. We had a 7:30 pm reservation and had to wait an hour after we got there to get seated and only after we complained. Several other patrons also had the same issue. When I discussed this with the greeter he told me that the manager overbooked and that they also accept call in's that they regularly place on the reserve list sometimes ahead of those of us that had reservations. They never even offered us a free drink or anything else for having to wait at the bar for a full hour. As long as we had to wait I could have gotten a seat at the bar with my wife since we were there long enough to get two seats. We will probably only come back if we call ahead, no reservation..."
