You can't miss dining here! The food is amazing, the wait staff, friendly, and the ambiance is the perfect mix for any occasion. I had a lovely Mother's Day brunch!
The evening was super due to our fabulous server. She gave us extra attention and made us feel very special/comfortable on our anniversary night.
Great food, selection, friendly and courteous service.
Great meal. Chef Jake did is truly gifted!
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.
wonderful experience in dining as usual.....
there is no need for prix fix menu`s..
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.
Great lunch in outside eating area. Wonderful food.
Village Pub never disappoints. Every course was delicious and service was impeccable. Would like option to order a la carte as too much food but will definitely be back soon.
Melody, our sever was amazing!!
Excellent for special occasions. The limited table arrangement for Covid was good: Not so crowded and quieter. Food presentation was excellent.
Chris the bartender is a rock star. If he has seats open, we forgo our table and sit at the bar.
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.
Expensive. Staff really try to hard to do a good job. Obvious the “regulars” get the most attention.
Perfect food, service, and atmosphere! Would go back asap!!
Absolutely incredible food and ambiance and actually quite affordable given the quality of the food. Really enjoyed it!
It was nice to be able to dine outdoors and enjoy a nice meal.
I didn’t want to cook as we had just flown in from Wisconsin. We were happy to get an early reservation. It was lovely in every way
I had a wonderful time at The Village Pub. Our servers were absolutely delightful, the food and atmosphere was great. Would definitely recommend and go again
Great restaurant, good food, nice ambience and service
Stunning Easter dinner. You guys never disappoint. Food was perfect. Service was perfect. If we are going to start going out to restaurants now, THIS is the way to go. Cheers.
Food was delicious, service was on point, and care was taken to make us feel comfortable under the Covid pandemic.
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.
I haven't been back to the Village Pub since pre-Covid. Juan was our server for Brunch last weekend and he did a fantastic job. We'll be back to visit for dinner soon.
It was our 25th anniversary and we were showered with royal treatment all evening! Perfect place to celebrate! Thank you Village Pub!
Was OK but not as good as pre-covid times. Server was very good.
Sublime service and an impressive selection of options from the tasting menu. The octopus carpaccio was particularly outstanding. Can't wait to go back.
As always the food quality has always been consistently good. Their signature dish black truffle with tagliatelle is outstanding.
Such a special way to celebrate our 29th anniversary. The service was outstanding as was the food
Encessive forced 20% surcharge not disclosed before dining.
Food was good but the wait was too long. Expect at least an hour between your courses.
Wonderful dinner. Lovely staff. The tasting menu offered quite a bit if variety and everything was delicious.
It was an incredible experience and the food was great. The drinks did not give many (any) reasonable options as far as price. However, the drinks and food were amazing.
Always outstanding. The service, food, attention to detail is top notch. Love this place.
The Village Pub is such an amazing standard and my favorite place to celebrate with my husband!
