The food here was excellent. I enjoyed a medium well chef's burger while my girlfriend enjoyed the cordon bleu. Both were delicious. However, the service my girlfriend and I received was not good at all. For a slow Wednesday evening, our waiter was not very attentive to us. For starters, our waiter was short and was more occupied talking at the bar with his co-workers rather than serving us. Our waiter seemed to engage every table in his section much more than ours, forgot to place our appetizer order, and did not refill our drinks the entire night. Overall, the food was great, but my girlfriend and I left pretty disappointedly with the service.

Justin gave us phenomenal service for our Valentines Day dinner! Our food was seasoned and cooked perfectly. We will definitely be back again!

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.

We love this place. American cuisine is always good and waitstaff is friendly and attentive. This is super family friendly and fun for adults with group tables and plenty of sports to view. The Kevins are great!

we loved being able to sit and chat without being rushed...the restaurant wasn't crowded and our waiter Kevin was attentive, patient, and understanding that we were enjoying our meal, dessert, and the time to visit.
