brought all 3 of us the wrong appetizers. took 25 minutes for the correct ones. did not make one of the soufflés on a pre fixed menu. we opted not to get a new one because of the wait. our waiter who initially brought the wrong appetizers never came back to apologize and disappeared. from that point on we had new wait staff. charged us for the entire ore fix meal when one of us didn't get dessert. should of removed it off the bill

The food at the Village Pub never disappoints. Everything is perfect from the display on your plate to the taste in your mouth. We go there every year for our anniversary. On our dessert plate it is written -happy anniversary. It’s really nice and the wait staff is always great. Service could not be better.

The venue was so nice and cozy. The service was definitely in the top tier, not to mention the amazing and delicious courses. We had a great time there for a casual Thursday. The location was also pretty quiet with nice night breeze and starry night. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming.

Sitting outside on the covered patio was very pleasant. The heaters make it very comfortable to sit outside. Patio set up, top notch. The prefix three course dinner had several choices to choose from, the appetizer, main course and dessert. Four different choices per course. We will return; food and service was excellent.

I love your restaurant and dine there when it's a special occasion or just when I want to feel "special". I will say that the endive and pear salad course on Saturday seemed a bit off: wet from refrigeration, not fresh. My shrimp and grits were good as was the delicious chocolate souffle. Every restaurant has an off day.

While our server and our sommelier were both great, and while the food was good, ultimately nothing was really memorable except for the price tag.

I took a dear friend to the Pub for lunch for her 60th birthday! They gave us the most beautiful table in the center of the dining room. Everyone took such incredible care to make sure everything was incredibly special. The hostess, sommelier, head waiter, and all of the wait staff were phenomenally attentive and worked very hard. They were personable and engaging. Of course, the food was amazing! Foie gras, duck and salmon dishes were sublime, as was the chocolate soufflé. We loved our experience!

Great place for dining and food are of good quality as well. But the waiter mistakenly served a wrong dish which cost much higher than our expectation. In total the service is good. I recommend duck breast and salmon

Food still good, even with a prim fixe menu, wine list still formidable! Outdoor patio area fine for late spring and summer, not attractive during a first rainstorm with winds, even with well-working heaters. Staff cheerful and listened to menu questions but it’s not the same ambience as sitting inside by the fireplace, feeling the warm buzz of conversations in the dining room as well as the bar.

The service was not on par with a restaurant of it's level. We had a difficult time getting the bread replenished, the food was sub par. Ordered the salmon and it was fishy tasting. the beet salad was lacking flavor and the porchini mushroom soup was also not very exciting. The dessert was good, we ordered the chocolate souffle. I was expecting a better experience for a nearly 500 dollar meal for two. They did offer a hamburger to take home as because of the fishy salmon, but over all, I don't think we will be back.
