  • Mother's Day Brunch

    Dined on 5/11/2014
    VT throws a great Mother's Day brunch if you eat meat. We don't, but we ate a lot of delicious berries, Belgian waffles, French toast, and salad. 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!

  • A Good Experience
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 5/7/2014
    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.

  • Disappointing meal
    thebigorangeVIP
    Dined on 5/1/2014
    The service was excellent but the meal was disappointing. My wife ordered a Caesar salad that was large but lacked taste. She followed with a plank steak that was overcooked and lacked taste and texture . I had clam chowder and the tavern salad that were good but couldn't overcome my wife's meal. Unfortunately we will not be returning.

    The food and service are consistently very good here. There is a large variety on the menu, and it is reasonably priced. The wait staff is well trained and always very pleasant. We attempt to try something different every time we eat here, and we're always happy with our selections. Our favorites, however, continue to be the Chicken Marsala and the Baby Back Ribs. And of course Wednesdays are also a favorite because of half-priced wine!

    We've been a "regular" at Village Tavern for years, and always find that it is a perfect fit for many occasions. The variety offered on the menu suits a wide range of guests, and the food is top notch. The ribs are my favorite, although prior to that I thought their short ribs were the best on the planet. Why are those no longer available? In any case, great food, great booths, great service and a wide variety make this a FAVORITE!

    I am a huge fan of the Village Tavern. Had many great meals there in the past and will be back. However, the quality for me last night slipped a little. We ordered the calamari, batter was good but the cheweness that should be there wasn't. It was alsmost like they tenderized it to much. They actually carried coctail sauce and the thai dressing was a nice twist. The ceaser salad side was a good size portion. It would have hit the spot if the plate was colder along with the lettuce. But good flavor. The ribeye had great flavor but a little over cooked for medium rare. Would have been nice to see a little green on the plate. Having the fries and meat, made the presentation blah. A sprig of parshley or something wold have made it pop.

The salmon entree got rave reviews as well. Easy to find in a very popular area. Put this one at the top of your list for lunch!!!

    It is refreshing to dine in a restaurant that includes two sides with the majority of their entrees. It is time that the public starting protesting all of this ala carte business. Delicious steaks, prime rib with all the trimmings - a must try if you are in Scottsdale, AZ.

    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!

    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.
