    The ambiance, food and wine are all great. However this one of a dozen times our waitress was rude, pushy and rushed us through the meal. I will be back but was disappointed in the service.

  • Village Tavern A Good Night Spot

    They were very good with our reservations. The service was a little slow for a weekday evening. We were seated very quickly, but the server took a long time and often forgot to bring the drinks and food we requested. We were very patient because it seemed as if she was new. On the hand, once the food arrived, it was great.This place offers a variety of food selections and the ambience is great.

    We initially thought this was just another burger joint but once we saw the menu, we were surprised. It offer a wide range of dishes and the aroma from the open kitchen was wonderful. I opted to go a little lighter and had the Fish and Chips that came out lite and crisp. My Daughter, had the Braised Short Ribs which arrived over Mashed Potatoes. Simply amazing!

    Four of us dined here during the week. I friend and I had two of the three tacos, which I would not recommend. The tortillas were not corn and the guacamole did not appear closely related to an avocado. The server seemed like she had too much to do, although she showed a spark shen I ordered her favorite Pinot Noir. I would not return unless I had a large group, for which the restaurant seems well suited.

    We made reservations in honor of a family members birthday. I had never eaten there. The food was amazing!! It did take a little long to get the food, and once out not all of it came at the same time, however our server was amazing and on top of everything. Sometimes the kitchen can make your server look like the bad guy, but we were sitting close enough to the kitchen to know it was not the case. Nevertheless it did not dampen our experience in the least.

    My wife and myself enjoyed our dinner thoroughly. The food was very good and the portions were large. Our waiter, Damien, was extremely attentive. Cindy, one of the managers, worked the room to make sure that all of their patrons were having a similiar experience. Can't wait to go back.

    We were a bit disappointed that when we had a reservation for 8:00pm, they had mistakenly given our table to others and we had a short wait. Other than that, all went well and our server(Ryan) was excellent!!

    Reservation was honored and we were sat quickly. Food was good served quickly big selection on menu but server rushed us and had attitude when we were taking our time and enjoying our meal. She tried to take my friends plate away before she was finished and half her meal was still on her plate. If we wanted fast food we would have gone elsewhere.

    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.
