This restaurant is a great place to go for a "VERY SPECIAL OCCASION". It's quite expensive but worth it. Delicious salads and entrees. Good wine selection. Friendly and well trained servers.

Food was excellent. Presentation and service were on point. Meats were well cooked and very tasty. Vegetarian options were exceptional, would love to try more next time. Noise level was higher than we liked but tolerable.

Overall a very good experience. The ambiance was great, food was great, service was impeccable. I made a reservation and asked for a quiet table, and was seated next to the kitchen entry (super busy and noisy). I almost gave the entire visit a 2 based purely on that disappointment. But I did not, as I would go there again for sure.

This is such a gem and a treasure. On the Peninsula the staff is always fantastic food is exceptional ! We had two duck breast a l'orange, lobster bisque soup for appetizers for myself. My lovely wife had a scallops appetizer with a cream hazelnut sauce and pasta, unbelievable!. Which would at any given time could have been the main meal.
And what can I say about Melody if you have gone to this restaurant you know.if you haven't you should,she is fantastic.
We had a five-star night thank you all again

Lunch at the Village Pub was like a mini-vacation for me and my scrappy gal pal. Wonderful to have such a gem so close by! And the service! They made me feel so cared for with their kind and friendly service. Thank you!

Hello and thank you for asking....we have eaten at the Village Pub several times at different days...some lunch and mostly dinner.....Sunday night I felt that the music was a bit too loud. We had difficulty hearing our waiter who was very polite to repeat some requests. The food was delicious as it always is...Marc Garibaldi enjoyed his birthday dinner for sure....thank you Diana E Garibaldi

The menu and quality of the food were both much improved over the last few times I've been there recently, and excellent. The service was good, but not great. The waiter had memorized everything in detail but wasn't really knowledgeable about details he should have known.

Our waitress was outstanding. She anticipated our needs and was very knowledgeable about the dishes. Food was excellent. The chicken with butternut squash and lamb dishes were enjoyed at our table. Desserts were cheesecake and a chocolate confection. Also very good. Wines tended to be on the high end of the price range. Wines that are as good or better are produced in California. Would have been to have some of them included in the wine list.

Love this beautiful restaurant tucked into a quiet corner of Woodside. It's the perfect place to take those with whom you'd like to have a nice conversation as you can actually hear yourself think. The food is good if a bit overpriced and the service can be spotty depending on your server and waiter.

The service and ambience was fantastic. I don't think any of the dishes were memorable. They tasted okay. We got the crab appetizer, duck entree & fillet mignon, chocolate souffle. The guy sitting in the next table was so loud.

You cannot go wrong with Village pub! They will make you feel comfortable, fix anything that doesn't work for you if anything were to happen and Chris makes the best cocktail! One of the best restaurant in the bay area.

Our server was amazing. We had her the last time that we dined at Village Pub and loved her then as well. I wish I could remember her name, because she deserves recognition. Everyone one there is very friendly and professional. The food is excellent. The ambiance is relaxing, warm and romantic.
Such a gem of a place.

We had a wonderful time on New Year's Eve. The restaurant looked festive and beautiful as we entered and all evening. There was a perfect vibe in the room - a clear feeling of lots of people having a good time. The crowd ran the gamut from senior citizens to twenty-somethings. Our server, Melody, was outstanding and we had the feeling of being cared for throughout the meal. When we asked if she had something specific, she would respond, "I have everything!" and make it appear. The food was delicious. We especially liked the amuse bouche (oyster), the soup, the pasta with mushrooms, the filet and the lobster. The pinot grigio from Alto Adige was a smooth and restrained delight. The French 75 was made to our specs and the best ever.
I wouldn't say the evening was a bargain, but I'd do it again on such a special occasion. See you soon!
