Diner Reviews
  • "We have been to the Village Tavern many times but this time they changed the menu an the chef didn't seem to be up to speed. I ordered fish tacos and the fish was in large pieces, burned on the edges and the tortilla shell fell apart. My husbands chicken sandwich had so much caramelized onion on it he couldn't pick it up. We both ended up eating our dinner with a fork. Always before when we mentioned our guest was having a birthday (60th on this occasion) we were welcomed at the door with a Happy Birthday and the birthday guest received an small ice cream dish. Very disappointed."

  • "I had my heart set on the cowboy chicken grill sandwich but was served another chicken sandwich in error. I was with business partners and did not want to point it out to the server and make everyone wait while mine went back to the kitchen so I ate what I was served. Unfortunately it was a disappointment and I would have expected better service from this restaurant."

  • "My reservation did not do me any good. The appetizer we were able to get once someone finally took our order was disgusting. Luckily no one would take our dinner order so we simply left. One thing they were really good at is apologizing and saying this is not their "usual level of service.""

  • "The crispy chicken salad was tasty and well seasoned. I had the salad finely chopped and it was easy to eat over a business lunch. My guest and I split the salad and ordered a pizza, that was equally as good."

  • "Our experience was pleasant. The server was friendly, most of the food was delicious and served in a timely manner. Server overcame my overcooked flank steak by taking it off at the close of the meal. He kept me from sharing that the meal I received was less than superior, but sharing with others how he overcame what he observed, despite me saying it was "ok" to eat! Thanks for stepping up. VT has a nice varied menu and is perfect for a group or just a night out as a couple. It has a warm ambiance and keeps you wanting to come back and try new menu items. They need to build one in Northwest Phoenix where I live! I drove 45 minutes to get here, andoverall, well worth it!"

  • "It's been a few years since I was here last. That's only because it's a bit of a drive from where I live. Then like now the food was superb and the service excellent. Have the best crab cakes and crab dip appetizer. Being originally from the east coast it's almost impossible to get good crab cakes in Arizona. If I lived close to this restaurant I would dine here every week."

  • "My food was not cooked as ordered. I asked for flank Steak to be done med. Rare and they served it rare and in a couple of pieces it was raw. Manager came by and asked about food and I stated that it was not med. rare but showed him the raw meat. he took it back and it was replace but not as much as was taken away."

  • "This is our favorite "special occasion" restaurant. My wife absolutely loves the crab cakes, either one cake as an appetizer or two cakes in the dinner. I always get the burger, which is cooked perfectly and has a great, meaty flavor . Lots of other good stuff on the menu too. Vibrant bar scene, although we aren't into that ourselves. Only problem is that it is pretty noisy inside, but what popular restaurant isn't?"

  • "But my husband ordered the filet mignon (lunch) and he said it was a bit dry and overdone (I don't remember how he ordered it). I ordered the 8 oz prime rib (end cut, as close to medium as possible) and it was good but seemed to have a bit more fat than usual. I like the end cut because it has more flavor (seasoning), however it didn't seem to be an end cut and the server didn't mention that it wasn't available. Anyway, I was still satisfied with the dinner. The server was just okay; nothing special but we've had better. We'll still come back, because I like the overall atmosphere."

  • "We have been here many times and, of course, obviously enjoy the Village Tavern. This time our special guest was my mother-n-law who has celiac disease and adheres to a gluten free diet. She loved everything about the Village Tavern which is quite an endorsement! The Village Tavern has a special gluten free menu which takes a lot of stress out of ordering. My mother-in-law said it was the best gluten free pasta she has had. She also liked the ambience and our waiter, Dylan, who was so personable and accommodating."

  • "My wife and I decided to try the Village Tavern Saturday evening. I ordered the Steak au Poivre with grits and a side of spinach. The meat was way over cooked and I sent it back. The grits were like nothing I've ever seen in the South -- more like soupy cream of wheat. Disgusting stuff. The spinach was limp, limp, limp. I finally ate the new steak but left the rest. My wife enjoyed her meatloaf, but we agreed that it was the worst dining experience we have had in years. The restaurant comped my dinner, but it was too little, too late. Don't waste your time."

  • "Meeting two of my long time friends my wife had never met, we decided on the Village Tavern being approximately half way between both our homes. It would be most accommodating with an "out of the way booth" to visit. The waitress made us feel so "unhurried" through out our long lunch experience enabling us to catch up with our visiting Our food was very good and our friends thoroughly enjoy it. "

  • "We came here for our anniversary last year, and were very well taken care of. So well, that we decided to come back again this year. If the quality of, well, everything stays as good as it has, we will be here many years to come. John specifically went out of his was to make sure my wife and I were comfortable and enjoyed our meal together. The filet mignon is always cooked exactly how we want it, the appetizer we tried was both not what we expected but still quite tasty (Colorado chips, ask for the BBQ sauce on the side though). Apple cobbler... man, that is such a way to end a night. Crisp apples, crumbles on top, ice cream... The double-decker cheesecake is fantastic, but we'll be back for that cobbler for sure. Thank you again!"

  • "We took my husbands sister there for her 83rd birthday. We had a wonderful booth towards the back which was not to noisy and the gentleman who checked us in wished her Happy Birthday. After we finished our meal they brought her an ice cream sunday topped with a candle. It was very thoughtful and she enjoyed her dinner, ate every bite! We all enjoyed our meal and the waitress was outstanding. The service was a little slow but I think they are understaffed."

  • "we sat on the patio and had terrible service. it took forever to get the food because supposedly the waiters were dismissed because they didn't have the customers and then all of a sudden they were inundated with customers and not enough help. it was late, we were starving and not as patient as we would have been at 6pm at night. i would recommend because it's usually very good, but not this past friday night"

  • "I met a friend for lunch and we both appreciated the food and the service. The menu had a number of options and it took us a while to decide. The server was knowledgeable and answered our questions. I had the spinach salad with chicken and my friend had the chicken salad. Both came with a sweet muffin, a nice treat. The salads were a good size and made to order. Our server was polite and efficient, refreshing our drinks without being asked. The prices are reasonable. I would definitely eat there again and recommend the restaurant to friends."

Service was slow and forgetful, but she was probably overwhelmed. It has been a family tradition to do this for the past few years and we will likely continue!"

  • "This was our first time at this restaurant. Our server (Dylan) was excellent. Although the restaurant was extremely busy, Dylan made it seem as though we were the only folks in the room. He was very attentive and got everything right. We appreciated his efforts. We also appreciated that there are options for vegetarians on the dinner menu, and that dish was terrific. The NY Strip steak (for the meat eater in our group) was just okay. The desserts were great, as were the appetizers. We would return to this location. "

  • "The Village Tavern Scottsdale was a very pleasant surprise. Had driven past it for years. So for mybirthday we decided to try somewhere new. The menu was ample, the selection outstanding. Prices reasonable. The meals were wonderful. Beautifully prepared and an absolute lack of complaint from anyone for anything. This is a restaurant to which we will gladly return and enjoy. There is however one caviat, because we like it so much, we have given it the kiss of death. If we love it, it will shutter it's doors. Perhaps this one will break the curse. I sincerely hope so."
