Service was incredible and food was delicious. Will definitely be back!
Food quality was just OK, food came out lukewarm to cold but service was good.
We had good service and great crab cakes!!! The servers were attentive.
One of my favorite places to eat lunch with a friend! Great food and service and like the ambience inside or out on the patio
Good and service ate great, fresh and tasty. Parking is an issue even at 11:30.
Avacado toast was delicious and beautiful ($17). Soda was over priced ($4.50) weak and watery. The 2 combined plus tax and 20% service on top came to $28+.
I'm ok with 20% service if service is good and fee is pre-tax which this wasn't.
The Village Bakery became one of our favorites during 2020 because they created a delightful dining ambiance out of a parking lot, giving us a warm and cheery place to pretend all was well with the world. We have made it a regular dinner spot for over a year, driving down from the City about once a month. As other restaurants have reopened at full capacity and parklets have sprung up throughout San Francisco VB remains high on our list of dining destinations. High marks for fresh ingredients, presentation, and tasty simple dishes like fried chicken, burger, and ribs. The service is always friendly and attentive without being intrusive. I especially appreciate how I can add one piece of fried chicken to my Caesar. My partner reports the desserts are outstanding. I appreciate the small but well curated wine list. PenneAsh is my go to red. Our only disappointment last night was the peas in the delectable chicken pot pie. They tasted as though they were canned. But that won’t keep us from returning. The corn soup, a seasonal offering, is worth the 50 mile round trip from SF.
Crowded. No social distancing. Slow service.
Food was mediocre. Hamburgers not that hot. Meatloaf dry and fries cold.
A wonderful place for a great meal outdoors!
I asked for assistance for my friend who is handicapped and all staff were very helpful and attentive in a respectful way. We were seated on the back patio, delicious lunch and excellent service.
I ordered the butter lettuce salad with fig and added roasted chicken. This is a healthy size salad with just the right amount of vinaigrette and some nuts added for crunch. The service was outstanding. Aside from the noise of sirens on Woodside Road, the outdoor ambience is quite nice.
Outstanding service (Miguel)!! The Mt Lassen Red trout with the harricots vert almandine was amazing. Great atmosphere and outstanding food quality & taste
Great fried chicken!
Food good. Service excellent. Parking super challenging.
Great prompt and cheerful service and a wonderful hamburger!
Corn soup was very good. All other food was mediocre.
It is a tale of 2 choices. The Village Bakery is like a small french cafe in a rural village. Its about you, the food and the service. They had outstanding takeout during the isolation as well. Lovely indoor or outdoor seating.
Walk past the crowded and loud scene in the front parking lot from the restaurant’s neighbor.
Food and service were excellent!
We're training my puppy on how to behave at restaurants and cafés and the staff were so sweet and good with him :)
Fast service and tasty food.
Love the location, great service, I wish the lunch menu was more extensive. We will definitely return.
Great place for dining outdoors, especially on a nice warm evening. Servers were very attentive and the food was really good. I had the corn soup and buttermilk chicken which was really delicious and my husband had the ribs (he said they were superb). Our friend had the ribeye and it was a large portion, she had to have a to go box.
This was my 2nd visit. I had a date brunch. It was reasonably quite enabling conversation. The food and service are fantastic. I will return.
Went for a 28th birthday celebration and they truly went above and beyond! I’ve gone to the village pub several times, but this was my first visit to village bakery. Great quality and friendly service. They gave my friend a huge slice of cake with a birthday candle! They also gave my dog homemade dog treats which truly made the visit special. We’ll be back!
Village Bakery has become our favourite restaurant. Great ambiance, super friendly service and a fabulous menu. 5 stars from everyone in our family!!!
Nice outdoor seating, good food, good cocktails/wine. All in all a good place.
Excellent as always, but several very large groups made it way too noisy out on the back patio.
This is our favorite neighborhood place to dine. We had the trout and it was outstanding.
Simple menu, but flawless preparation and execution of all food item.
Crab Cakes normally disappoint at most places, these were superb, as was everything else.
lovely long time favorite. great bakery products, fabulous omelettes. wonderful friendly service
I was so looking forward to a lovely meal and drinks sitting outside. I got the drinks and outside dining, but I need to remember not to order steak here. It’s the second time I’ve ordered it and been hugely disappointed. Medium is not brown. “Marbled” as described, is not brown and tasteless. It’s a shame they consistently make bad steak. Don’t order that.
Excellent food, service and ambiance. Not our first time at Village Bakery and it won't be our last.
Very expensive and they charge for every little thing!
Everything on the menu is fantastic as always!
Met up w two dear friends. Our waiter Keith was excellent. He brought water to my two companion dogs as soon as we sat down. He made sure we were all well hydrated with peach tea!
Fantastic food, great setting, and they were terrific with accommodating my daughter's Celiac disease
Best burger ever - perfectly cooked with great dressing for it.
And the lemon bar for dessert rocked!
Wonderful place for brunch!!
The menu is too limited and the food quality has gone down. Also, amount of food served with main course was disappointing. Not as good as it used to be.
