After over 10 years of having exceptional meals here, we were disappointed with our dinner tonight. New Prix fix menu limits choice and forces dessert. We were given champagne to start which we weren’t even asked about and that we never order. Bar menu was discouraged by waiter. His delivery of specials was barely understood leaving more questions . Cocktails weren’t offered. No more Parker rolls. Only consumed a half bottle of wine and dinner for 4 amounted to over $700.00. Medium rare steak was good, but not what we have had in the past. Will not be returning for a long long time. We are in the hospitality industry and understand the difficulties with staffing and procurement, but this was unacceptable. Not so much about the service, but what we received for the price.

Dear Susan, Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. Please accept our apologies that we fell short of your expectations. The server offered you complimentary Champagne because their was a note in your profile that a reservation you had at our sister restaurant, Selby's, was canceled due to COVID closure. Our bar menu is available at the bar or the lounge tables. If you are open to having a more in-depth conversation, please contact me at rachel.candelaria@thevillagepub.net

We were seated outside as requested and it was pretty comfortable. There were some louder groups at a few tables but I think that is just the way some people are - and maybe forgetting to lower their voices when they have their masks off! I know there is not much the restaurant can do about such cases but I am just noting it for other guests.
We enjoyed the tagliarini starter - a luxurious dish with the sauce and black truffles that we enjoy every time we have it. The chicken roulade was delicious- the bacon-tomato jam adds just the right flavor. The poached salmon had excellent texture and flavor; the oyster nage was interesting but we were glad we had them leave it on the side as it overwhelmed the flavor of the sweet corn. The beignets were light and the white chocolate entremet had an interesting mix of textures and was not too sweet. Good way to celebrate a birthday.
We do hope the a la carte menu comes back in the future because it is getting harder to enjoy a three course meal - no matter how delicious.

Completely overpriced for what they are delivering.

Three people with a price fix with one drink each came to $500 before tip.

Food was OK but not of a quality that would match this price range. The fish was a bit overcooked, for example. The cocktail, to my taste, was too sweet.

Service was a bit lackadaisical (my kid was urging me to ask for the check with the desert so we wouldn't have to wait for waitstaff again).

After reading JoanneC's review, now I am wondering if a 20% service fee was added to our bill without the waiter informing us. If so, that would be bad form.

In any case, we would come here and go to the bar and get a hamburger, but our experience was that quality was not commensurate with price.

Fixed meals for as low as $89 per person + 20% service added to the bill. Tips and tax are extra so each person meal is around $120 minimum. Food quantity is small and waiters/waitresses are rude. My personal opinion, the meal isn’t worth the price.

Thank you for your feedback. We still have our restaurant set at 25% capacity in an effort to make guests feel comfortable. We do our best to seat every party on time but unfortunately there are times when parties on the first turn do not get up and leave immediately upon finishing their meal, which causes delays in getting the second seating sat at the time of the reservation. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.

all the food was extremely high quality. produce was extremely fresh and highly flavorful. You don't get this good of product everywhere. The only thing (that isn't really a negative) is this is a somewhat traditional experience. If you are ready for a modern update to a traditional sort of clubhouse menu, then this is a great example. Nothing to blow anyone's mind, except the extreme quality. The soundtrack completes the sort of Rat-Pack vibe that makes you feel Old Blue Eyes could show up any minute in a shiny Rolls Royce. More likely some equestrians will pass by and posh vehicles will fill up the parking.

The food was very thoughtfully paired with fine wines selected by one of our party and was outstanding. The steak was perfectly charred on the outside while maintaining a rare interior and the souffle for dessert was divine. The staff was attentive and gracious, especially with a very particular member of our party. It's so nice to enjoy fine dining in this setting again!

The service was slower and less attentive than usual, this was a kitchen and support staff issue, not our waiter (who was fantastic). I’d like to see the menu return to pre-pandemic options, as two out of three children, and one adult, didn’t want to eat a three course dinner.
