First time here. Great place. Sad to hear the new owner is closing the doors.
Seated promptly. Service was slow. No water refills unless asked. Did not provide specials of the day until asked. NY steak and garlic potatoes were salty. Carrots tasted "off". Family ordered deserts which were the best part of the dinner. I think with training, wait staff could be improved and less salt in prepared food would be advisable.
Our group of 6 enjoyed a delicious dinner. Overall, we were very pleased. The only negative was that 4 of us received our dinner at least 10 minutes before the last 2, which made it a bit awkward. The 2 who received their dinners late both ordered steak, so not sure what the problem was. Wait staff was professional and friendly. A very nice evening.
I had the shrimp fettucine. It was in a tomato, basil cream sauce with sundried tomatoes. The shrimp were very large. I told the waiter to tell the chef that we had just spent 10 days on the coast and this dish was as good as any shrimp I had on the coast! It was delicious!
We also had a bottle of viognier/sauvignon blanc blend white wine which was wonderful and very reasonably priced.
Our server was exceptional. Great personality, interacted well with all 7 of us. Made dining fun. Only 3rd day on job. From Alaska. Keep her!!!!
Our dinner was part of a package offered by the resort. We were disappointed that they were out of baked potatoes an hour after they opened, but pleased when they were able to find one for my wife. Service was quite nice, and rather responsive, even though our server was new to the position. For good basic food at a medium price, you won't go away hungry!
Absolutely amazing service, such a lovely evening! Forgot about the live music will definitely make later reservations next time. Thank you!
Our reservation was for 7 pm on Saturday. There weren’t many people inside, but we were seated right behind an occupied booth with a loud party.
The salad and bread were delicious. By the time the meal came, our appetite had significantly waned. I ordered the top sirloin “surf and turf” and my wife ordered the NY steak. My shrimp were excellent. We ordered our steaks medium but both came out well done or past well. They were remade and came out medium the second time. Mine still had little to no flavor and took so long to chew that it would have taken me an hour to eat the steak had I desired more than a bite. The “demi glaze” was awful. The steak reminded me of what you would find in a can of Dinty Moore beef stew—but not as desirable.
We won’t be coming back. We had high hopes, especially based on the good reviews, the pretty setting and the great start to the meal.
Nice seating outdoors on a patio surrounded by gardens. Good selection of appetizers and entrees as well as a variety of beers, mixed drinks and wine.
Great food, great ambiance sitting outside with heater next to us... chose not to eat inside!though some people were. Encrusted goat cheese was the best!!!
The food was dire. One steak was ordered medium rare and was delivered well. The fried cabbage that was half of the seasonal vegetable (baby carrots the other half) was soaked in grease. The baked potato seemed like it was cooked the night before and the two dollar addition of bacon and cheddar was two tablespoons of shredded cheese and a teaspoon of bacon bits; luckily the spud was already soaked in some kind of oil, because it wasn't hot enough to melt the butter. Service wasn't bad (other than the waitress in the bar not knowing what chianti is) and the atmosphere in the bar is worth sitting down by the fire for a beer and watching a game.
The Village Green is one of two restaurants in Cottage Grove to get a steak; I try both a couple times a year to see if either is as good as their price indicates and the answer continues to be no. Based on this meal The Village Green is getting further from the goal of edible. .
Sat outside. Outstanding gardens! Great service. Portions were good.
Excellent entrees, the cabernet was exceptional! Very tasteful, almost unnoticeable Plexiglass barriers between tables helped all parties relax. With live music!!
The service was excellent. Because of COVID restrictions, there were fewer people in the dining area.
We will go back to dine as the food is excellent. The choices are varied. The quantity is good
We had the dinner package and were very pleased with the value for the money spent.
Our server was terrible!!! Nice guy but forgot everything, my husbands coffee, my soda, my husbands dinner order as wrong! It was not busy at all, but our server was not present, did not seem interested in serving us. The other young women serving had to help us each time, including cashing us out so we could leave, and bringing us a box for the leftovers. We typically tip extremely well, but considering our service we barely left a tip (which I hate). Would have left a bigger tip for the young women who DID help us, but she seemed like an honest girl who would of gave it to waiter assigned to our table instead of keeping it, and he didn’t deserve it. Thinking I should stop by tomorrow and speak to the manager, and leave some $$ for her. So disappointing, we really enjoy this place every other time, we didn’t even stay for the music, what a shame!!
Good place to watch a Ducks basketball game and have decent pub grub.
I enjoyed the salmon, my husband had the surf and turf special. Our only disappointment was that they were out of the special dessert we wanted so I guess we need to go earlier next time. The desserts we ordered were very good - peach crisp and carrot cake. We were happy that the covid restrictions finally let us sit down inside a restaurant.
We had a blast and the dinner was perfect! Loved the outdoor patio for safe dining and the lights were brilliant. Our server was especially amazing.
The food was pretty good for the price and our waitress was very nice and helpful. Only complaint is how cold it was but we can thank our governor for that.
Patio wasn't "so bad" - food was good and staff where accommodating.
Propane heaters at each table helped but the net result was one barely warm side, one cold side. Ate entree while it was warm, nibbled remaining food which was pretty cold. We will return here when we can eat indoors, or when summer comes.
Our waiter was slow and terribly unorganized. Our checks were wrong several times.
Usually this place is top notch, I think it must have been a difficult night dealing with the current communistic regulations. Food was good! Could use better heaters it was cold outside.
We were seated on the balcony overlooking the holiday lights. It was magical! Salmon was amazing.
What a treat for Christmas dinner during the pandemic! We went particularly for the prime rib and wete not disappointed. Four tables outside on a balcony, beautiful lights in the garden area, friendly fellow diners. The prime rib was cooked perfectly, as were the mashed potatoes and carrots. The rosemary au jus was delicious, and I don't usually like it! Will definitely go back.
We had an amazing dinner while overlooking the holiday lights. The food and drinks were delicious. The server deserves special mention for attentiveness and enthusiastic welcome. We actually felt like they were glad we came.
My only complaint, which was quickly addressed by our waitress and with the cooks compliance was at 4pm only the bar menu was available, something we were not aware of when we made dinner reservations. With covid we picked the earlier time slot for dinner and we were served an excellent meal from the dinner menu.
Thank you Village Green. Dinner, Christmas lights and an excellent meal.
Absolutely loved the food and service!
We ate outside by all the Christmas lights and had our own heater. We felt very much like we were in Santa clause land. It was so special and my granddaughters loved it so much.
We will be back next year. I'm hoping it will be outside again without covid.
Our family had a great time. Beautiful view of the lights & we had some delicious food/drinks. Our waitress was really great. Definitely recommend!
Excellent experience outdoor dining (during winter) surrounded by beautiful holiday lights and light holiday background music. Personal heater was supplied and we maintained a distance from other guests (balcony is limited to four tables). Our server, Cooper, made our anniversary evening special.
We ordered take out from the lounge and ate it on the patio off our room. It was great!
It is very nice and the food was delicious, the staff were very nice and helpful when trying to decide what to have. I had the recommendation on the special which was their tri tip. My wife had their New York steak. We both had the garlic mashed potatoes and baby candied carrots. For dessert we had the Creme Brule. It was all very delicious and there was more than plenty for us. We also had a bottle of wine and it was very good also. We had come for the the getaway for two package, which is a very good deal. We would do it again.
Very nice quiet, "classic", atmosphere, very good service, and great food. Extremely good value for what you get, especially the "dinner escape package."
The kitchen crew here know food. The dinner was excellent! We used to have an award-winning restaurant, so we're impressed when food comes out not only beautifully presented but with flavors and combinations that elicit “mmmm’s”.
Well run establishment, with very good food at a reasonable price (considering quality). Highly recommend for those staying at The Village Green.
We had placed our reservation a few days before and thanks to the app, changing it several times was not an issue. We used the dinner package and were so impressed with the meal we got for the $40.00. We loved the wine, and now I wish I had purchased a bottle to bring home. My pasta was absolutely divine and the portion more than I could eat! I will be staying there for every bowling tournament!
I already posted a "Recommendation" on my facebook page!
This is the best deal since sliced bread! Excellent meal and incredible value.
Wines not bad either
This is the second time that I have eaten there and this is the second time that the service was not very good and some of the food was not properly prepared. My son ordered a tri-tip steak medium rare and it was almost well done. My wife ordered a new york steak well done and it was medium well. It also had a lot of gristle on it. The bread that was brought to the table early in the meal was cold. We did not send the steaks back as it had taken quite a while to even get the food and didn't want to wait while new steaks were cooked.
The restaurant was not very busy but our server seemed to disappear for lengthy periods of time. At one point, after I had finished eating, I went to the restroom and found her standing at a table talking to some people that I assume were her friends. A little later, she brought the bill and then disappeared. I eventually got up and went into the other dining area to get her and again found her laughing and talking with that same group. I realize that she had other tables to serve but at this point, our table and the other one were the only two that were occupied. I don't know if there was a staffing shortage or any other issues but the entire dining experience took two hours from being seated to exiting the restaurant. The server was very pleasant and professional.
The redesign of the restaurant is lovely, we felt very safe. Our server was outstanding. The soup and salad were great, bread hot and delicious. The prime rib was ok, the vegetables were fresh and perfectly prepared. The potato presentation was awful - two big scoops with brown gravy! We probably won't have the prime rib again but will come back and try other things when we visit again. Considering COVID - it was all very good.
Certainly one of the best here in Cottage Grove, OR. The onerous restrictions imposed by our government have been well overcome in terms of social distancing and other basic requirements. Unfortunately, the restrictions include masks on the servers which are a distraction.
