We have been to the Village Pub in that past - pre-CoVid, and will be making this a regular for us. My dish of the foie gras, duck, and chocolate soufflé were excellent. My husband ordered the specials, white asparagus, beef wellington and beignets. The asparagus and beignets were delicious. However, the beef was barely cooked and not anywhere near medium rare which is how the chef recommended the cook on the steak to be. They were very gracious and offered to bring my husband a new dish but he had already eaten most of the veggies and mash that came with it, all of which were very good, and didn't want another. He cut the cooked portion from the edges and ate that. They were very apologetic and removed the premium for the wellington and comped the asparagus premium.

In all, this is a wonderful place - one hiccup is not a deal breaker for us. We will be coming back.

Oh, we ate outside on the patio. It was very pleasant. The wait staff was exceptional.

Excellent restaurant that I love going to on a special occasion. I've never gotten anything but excellent food and excellent service here. My only complaint is that the wine list is a bit pricey.

My cousin and I had a conversation about how we both never got the chance to try caviar so we booked a reservation for Village Pub after visiting Filoli which is a garden nearby. We got the caviar d’ Aquitaine and it was a decent first try. Everything had the right flavor to it. My favorite part was dessert which I got the white chocolate banana cream pie.

Always consistently outstanding for the last 20 years....even though the menu has been paired back due to the pandemic, the selections are generous, creative and gourmet. Service is tops. Lovely new patio now that will be great anytime...even after the pandemic. Awesome wine selection.

Too expensive for the quality of the meal. Food very good. Service great. The new seating (COVID-style) brings down the noise and the annoying conversations of venture capitalist. Why not ban cell phones at the table??

What a gem! Went here for Saturday lunch, with a 3-course set menu. Pricey, for lunch, but no more than you'd expect from a Michelin star restaurant. Exquisite food, beautifully presented: we had lobster consommé and a divine omelet (my husband), and truffle pasta and lobster Benedict (me), and two perfect desserts (strawberries multiple ways and beignets). Service was flawless (here's looking at you, Juan), and while the menu is fancy, it's very accessible--and the whole place is warm and inviting. Want to go back for the famous burger-at-the bar. One of our fave dining experiences in and around Palo Alto.

They had a prix fixe menu for Easter Brunch. While the options were nice, the food quality was not nearly as good as normal. It felt like a downgrade to a generic hotel brunch. Shrimp was overcooked, ham was dry, dessert felt like an afterthought. I will be happy to return to dine from the regular menu, but would not go there for a holiday prix menu next time.
