    The food is always consistent and delicious, but was upset that they made us wait when there were plenty of tables and then we were seated at 3:01, a minute too late to receive the free mimosas!

    My Caesar salad lettuce was all wilted. My husbands salmon on his salad was good but the greens were not crisp. Rolls are very bland and in imaginative. We hve eaten at VT numerous and the last two times did not enjoy. What's going on there?

    We frequent the Boynton Beach location very often. Yes, an older crowd but the location in Pembroke Pinea was very lively with younger people, but the service was awful, the food was barely passable (trout portion was tiny ) and waitress was not good. Wont go there again for dinner. We have had brunch there and it was better.

    The server was horribly inattentive compared to numerous other times we have eaten here. It took 3 attempts to get refills on drinks, we requested sivlerware 2x, and the dirty dishes from our first course of appetizers were still crowding the table whne they brought dessert. The food was good as always, however it was lukewarm at best by the time it reached our table.

    Our food took a while to get to us once we placed the order, the kicthen was busy and it did not seem that organized. The servers were working double duty, waiting on the customers and running the food out of the kicthen. That process affect the overall service for the customer waiting for drinks, refills and added to the frustration due to the lack of attendtion from our server.

    I never write reviews but I couldn't help writing something about our experience at Village Tavern Saturday night. The waiter was not friendly and slow. The food took over an hour to come out. When I said something to the server about taking so long to bring us the food, he replied back "I find that very hard to believe" and walked away from us. Our food was mediocre at best. I have had the "Chicken BBQ Pizza" a million times there because it's my favorite. The pizza that I was served had raw dough, and it tasted like it had been re-heated a couple of times. My daughter's chicken parmigiana was a mess and pasta tasteless. It was very disappointing to say the least. Oh and there was a roach on the table next to us!

    One of our favorite restaurants. Wish they were closer to our house. We would eat there more often. Our kids have Celiac disease and need gluten free. They are always very accommodating and they have many great choices to choose from. Not very many local restaurants offer that and if they do....they food is not nearly as good as The Villiage Tavern.

    Village Tavern is a great spot for lunch or dinner with friends or a loved one. Although it is quite loud and the wine list could be broader, the staff are always attentive and personable. To be honest, the food is not necessarily gourmet. But, it is tasty and satisfying. I would definitely recommend his establishment if you are in the area.

    The food here is good, but the service makes it! Our waitress was amazing. Engaged, reviewed specials, recommended great items and checked on us frequently. Our appetizer took way too long to come out but before we could even complain, the mgr. Came over and apologized and paid for it. I was seated by the kitchen so we could see everything going on there and I was impressed.

    This is are neighborhood restaurant. We were just there not even a month ago. This time the service was horrible. It was mid week at 6:30 PM. The restaurant was empty and the waitress was horrible. Didn't bring water or checked up on us to tell her our appetizer chips were grease and limp. When the food came out we had to ask the other waiters to bring us out extra sauce or even ketchup. When we did the waiters screamed at her in the kitchen to help her guest. So embarrassed. Then she disappeared for about 20 minutes and eventually were able to ask for the check. Really bad experience.

    Loved the dark lighting, the ambience was great. My only complaint is they have horrible bread- same goes for their croutons. I had the Salmon Ceasar Salad and it was good, but, as I said, couldn't bring myself to eat the soggy croutons. But everything else is fantastic. Still would recommend it.

    pretty nice place with pretty good selection on menu and pretty good food at pretty good prices. not all orders were cooked as requested and waiter didn't mention there would be an additional 4.00 charge to an item where spinach was requested rather than one of the other components of the dish. charged 6.95 for salad that was supposed to be 4.50 when ordered with entree. overall it was a pretty good experience and we will probably try them again. probably wouldn't be as nice when very crowded but they are on the right track i think.

    Met friends for dinner at Village Tavern and enjoyed the good food and good wait service! The iceberg wedge was best ever, did not need to order anything else to eat it was so large. Worth returning to, in either the Pembroke Pines location or the Boynton BeAch location.
