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.

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.

Excellent service by Eric and crew. Outside dining was pleasant after they moved another space heater nearby, but a little chilly still. Crab Ravioli and beignets were incredible. Steak special was cooked perfectly but could have used a bit more flavor for my taste. Will go back again.
