I have been coming to the Village pub since 2004 and it’s never failed to live up to its standards. Food, atmosphere but above all, service, has always been top notch. I know that I can always count on these three pillars whenever I have dined here; and it’s been a gamut of occasions: birthdays, out of town guests, anniversaries, date nights, and just everyday dining. I’m so glad The Village Pub has been able to weather the pandemic and I’ll continue to do my small part in helping it continue!

Wonderful dinner. Only surprise was I asked for a glass of wine with my dinner and let the waitperson choose and it was a bit pricey at $36/glass. I should have looked at the list.

The price fixe menu feels like a trick or a trap - they don't need to do that in order to entice diners to spent more money. The quality of food was okay but as a friends said, "you don't go to the Village Pub for the food". Until they revise the mandatory price fixe policy in the main dining room, we'll stick to the bar and the bar burger. For now, the value equation is waaaay off.

The fantastic dishes coming from the Village Pub kitchen are now paired with a lovely outdoor seating experience.....implemented during the pandemic. This was my first visit with the new seating. Don't be afraid of any early seating, Our 5:15 reservation was perfect...warm air, refreshing breeze, not a wisp of summer fog in sight. All in all, we had an exquisite meal in celebration of my wife's birthday.

The food and service was worthy of a Michelin star establishment. I really like the set price menu and dinner options. Our sommelier, Jaime Pinedo, took our evening all the way to the top. His wine selections were spot on. Our very enjoyable evening would have not been the same with out him.

Thank you so much for your kind review! I will be sure to mention the option of a small cheese plate as a third course option for dinner. In the future, we do always have fruit and cheese in-house and would be happy to offer that to you in lieu of a sweet dessert the next time you join us.

Came here to celebrate my anniversary with my boyfriend and everything from the service, ambiance, the food, all impeccable. I can see why this place has a Michelin star and it’s well deserved. Staff is friendly and their sommelier was incredibly knowledgeable and helped me find something I didn’t even know I wanted. Definitely making this a regular date night spot.

The food here is excellent.
20% gratuity is included in the final bill which I totally understand to help the restaurant survive in this pandemic. However, they also charged the tax on the gratuity which I am not too sure if it is the right thing to do.

The Village Pub is a more elegant restaurant than the name implies. Though often frequented by residents in the area who bring their (well behaved) kids, and quirky elderly couples who have enough money to be called eccentric, the restaurant strikes the right balance of being formal without being pretentious or stuffy.

OUTDOOR DINING: The outdoor dining area was unexpectedly pleasant even though it wasn't scenic and was surrounded by parking lot. They've encircled the area with a wall of planter boxes overflowing with flowers and trees to create a nice ambiance. Each table had its own heater to counteract the sometimes-chilly breeze off the mountains. Very nice.

MENU: The wine list was impressively hefty and filled with many "I'd love to try that one" options. The menu, in comparison, was surprisingly limited and only had a few choices for each course. However, each item was carefully prepared with a good balance of creative flavors and artistic presentation. They had several vegetarian options and the staff was keen to ask for any food allergies that would require something different from the chef. The food was very good.

STAFF: The service staff is helpful and friendly and they are supported by people equally friendly and helpful. The service was very good.

SUGGESTIONS: There were two things that detracted from the dinner. (1) The cheese course was sparse, boring and grossly overpriced. (2) The server did not inform us that she had already added in the tip (for our party of three). Had the table next to us not discovered she did the same to them, I would've paid twice. Pre-adding the tip is presumptuous. Not telling the guest is poor form.

This a a great little hidden get tucked in the hills south of San Francisco. The food was great and worthy of a repeat visit. However compared to other Michelin restaurants I've been to its a stretch to say that what we ate was worth what we paid. 4 people and our bill was a little under $2000. While I enjoyed the experience and the server was wonderfully friendly, it doesn't quite meet the standards of service and attentiveness for a Michelin restaurant.

Outstanding as always. We've been here several times and it's a great experience every time. It was a busy night when we went so service was off to a slow start-- 20 minutes before we got water, and I had to ask the bus boy to find the waitress so we could place drink orders. But after that initial rush the service was timely and pleasant, probably just caught them at a bad moment.

I would highly recommend the Village Pub. Excellent food and amazing staff! I think it seems a little silly to continually add extra costs on top of the prix fixe, but I understand that things like caviar have to be extra. I think some other things could have been folded in.

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.
