Lafayette Village Grill Ratings and Reviews
I specifically chose Lafayette Village Grill for Valentine’s Day because it’s where I met my now fiancé 4 years and 8 months ago. It’s one of those dates one can remember like it was yesterday. Village Grill reserved that same booth for me without hesitation, and made a great night even more special. Thank you Village Grill!
Awesome! Hubby and I went for Valentines Day dinner. I had the quiche and salad. I love quiche and have it often when we are out to eat. The quiche, tomato and mozzarella, was the best I have ever had EVER! The salad could have been just a tiny bit more but was yummy with the best balsamic dressing I've had lately.
Hubby had the Grouper special and was super happy that I had the great idea of making reservations here.
Hardly had room for dessert but decided to share the Chocolate topped Strawberry Cheesecake. It was Heaven on a plate.
Our server was very attentive but not pesty. I hate it when they hover, and he didn't.
Both Riesling and Moscato were delicious.
All in all a very nice romantic dinner. Very happy! We have only been there maybe six times, but it is going to be more often!!!
I appreciated the variety of choices on the menu (although so many things seemed appealing that it took awhile to decide on a meal.) I intend to return before long to try other options. I liked the choice of specialty cocktails also. Service was good and setting was casual but pleasant.
This was our first time visiting. Triangle Restaurant Week helped us find a new fave! Excellent fusion dishes, first rate friendly service and our picky eater in the bunch found a new place to get a plain cheeseburger. Wide menu - we can’t wait to go back and try more things!!
The food was good and the staff friendly and sympathetic to the temperature in the resturarnt. I wouldn't recommend going there on a really cold day like we have had this week as the building has no auxiliary heat. We were early in thier day so maybe it gets better as there are more and more people to help warm it up.
Third time visiting Village Grill and the food never disappoints. Our waiter could have been a bit more attentive but it doesn't take away from the great food this place offers. Nice place to hang out with or meet friends, a business lunch or just about any occasion. Atmosphere is lively and fun so if you are looking for a quiet , secluded spot this is not the place. However, if you are looking for a place that serves consistently great food with an upbeat vibe then you can't go wrong.
It was just we two for Thanksgiving dinner this year, so we took a chance on Lafayette Village Grill. We hadn't been there for at least 4 years, and were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food, and the lower-than-remembered noise level. The staff were friendly and attentive as well.
The only criticism I would mention is that it was odd, and a little awkward, that the buffet serving tables were set chest-high. I've never seen this before. It made it almost impossible NOT to breathe over the food, and I had some difficulty filling my plate at that height. Apart from this minor detail, a thoroughly enjoyable meal!
Food tasted like it came out of a can. If you just want food, and pretty big portions in a fun environment this is the place for you. No management here, so servers have no idea what they are doing, there are no systems and procedures and the attitude of unsupervised staff is what you might expect.
Too bad, good concept, good decor poor poor management
People were nice enough but the service wasn’t great. Place was not busy at all but it took way longer than expected to get food. Also, I had to keep clearing our table of used glasses & plates. Seems like there’s a lot of potential here but we left disappointed.
They were Not prepared for a busy night. Waitress was very nice even being overwhelmed and got the orders correct. We waited quite a while before ordering. Food was not great. Lettuce wraps were bland and lettuce was hardly big enough to fill. I've always had good experiences here but this night wasn't great.
I had lunch before doing some errands in town. The menu had a wide variety of choices and I intend to go back in the future to try some other dishes. I did the soup and sandwich combination with tuna melt and broccoli and cheese soup. There were a reasonable number of wines available by the glass but mostly widely available selections. The atmosphere is casual and sporty. It was a cool day so I did not eat on the patio but like that they offer outdoor seating.
We decided to eat outdoors. Unfortunately as a result we had to deal with too many flies. Otherwise the meal was excellent, the service attentive but not intrusive, and since it was a Thursday evening there was entertainment on the lawn. A very enjoyable evening with friends.
I had been there before so I thought it would be a good choice. The young woman who waited on us was not attentive. I specifically asked for just vinegar, NOT vinaigrette. I repeated it several times. I got vinaigrette & she said well this is what they gave me. Also, my friend order a beer twice & each time she wanted over 10 minutes. The second time, I went to the bar to get it & the bartender was not very friendly about it. Mind you, there were only two other parties in the place as it was about 3pm. Very disappointed & embarrassed.
The ahi tuna salad was divine! Will definitely be going back for more. The tuna was seared to perfection. My husband had a burger, which he enjoyed very much. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. We like to dine here casually with friends or for special occasions. The cocktails are fantastic. Overall, a great place with exceptional dishes!
We requested outside dining because we had two little ones with us 8 & 5. They quickly made friends and played in the large courtyard area. The menu offered kids is excellent. It was our third time there and it's nice to watch the kids play as we casually had dinner and drinks.
