    Made reservation during the week and it did not mention brunch but that was the menu on Sunday. The food was nothing special the wagyu burger was not wagyu and had better burgers at barbecues. Order an appetizer and it came at the same time as the food. The service was not much better as we order two bottles of sparkling water and they brought one sparkling and one non-sparkling. Also, the wrong brand and served us with a broken glass. I wouldn't recommend going this restaurant!!!!!!

    We thoroughly enjoyed dining on the patio at Village Bistro. The food, especially the large shrimp cocktail and the ahi tuna, are super fresh, the service is always efficient and friendly, and the drinks are the best I’ve had! Thank you also for always treating us like valued diners!

    Wait time for the food was two hours. I understand it was Mother’s Day but if you’re so busy then don’t take new reservations, or don’t charge a full price for this horrible experience (it’s not a cheap restaurant)... We ended up taking the food home because the kids were tired of the wait.

    The restaurant was immensely overbooked and understaffed. The management overwhelmed the servers, bartenders and hosts. They promoted a brunch and did not even offer the brunch menu. Mother’s Day was ruined for my family after waiting 2 hours and not even receiving all of our apps. The owner of this restaurant should hire managers that know how to set a restaurant up for success and apologize to the servers for putting them through such a terrible day.

    Absolutely horrible experience. I took my wife and kids here to celebrate Mothers Day. We were seated at 12:30 PM and they never took our order! We waited 1 hour before giving up. I never had that experience. Mother’s Day lunch was ruined!

    It was really disappointing. Our waitress was rude and kept bringing us wrong orders. Our food came out at different times. Mine was cold my moms French toast was burnt. The server kept rolling her eyes. Then put 20% sating we had a large party but it was just 4 of us. She only added the gratuity bc she knew we were so upset. Really unfortunate we won’t be coming back. She was a small Spanish lady she she wouldn’t be serving tables or work in hospitality

    We reserved for outdoors for a graduation celebration party of 8. We were not told they would not accommodate such a large party outdoors until we arrived at the door. It turned out to be fine but not what we expected. That said, food was good although it was very slow to come out.

    The kitchen knows it’s way around a wide variety of ingredients and cooking styles. The lobster salad, tune tartar and ribeye were outstanding. The scallops with risotto was solid but it’s clear the risotto is partially precooked and finished for service. It’s more warm creamy rice with flavor than a risotto. The service is attentive and warm. The owner or manager is checking in regularly to ensure nothing gets overlooked. The place is hard to pin down in a short summary as it spans tapas and pizza to $139 tomahawk steak. At the upper end one expects expert presentation, perfect sides and a high attention to detail. At the other end of the menu good flavor and value for you money are the norm. The kitchen is trying to please both ends and gets it right more often than not.

    Used to visit this place when it was the Beach House. They have maintained their quality when it comes to food and their menus. 5 star excellence Not sure than a change in furniture was necessary or that the new ones are any better. Service staff was short and inattentive. They need training by English or French workers who excel at service

    Avid guest of Village Bistro who always looked forward to their Lamb entree and Scallop Risotto. My entire party was disappointed in both. Each person in my party had recently gone there and was equally disappointed with another entree. My daughter and I had the Scallop Risotto. It was salty, the scallops a bit slimy and the risotto both chewy and crunchy based on the bite you took. I was truly disappointed because it had always been one of both of our favorites. Pros: everyone was super friendly and attentive. Small bites were great; the octopus and mushrooms and the cheese pizza was very good. Pizza had a great oregano blast. For the price, I do not feel the entrees are worth it anymore. I would still go there-love that place. Yet, just for drinks and small bites, and now the pizza.

    I love this place but at $79.00 for Valentines 3 course meal it was not worth it. I was not offered regular menu but as we left restaurant we noticed others were given that option.we arrived at 4.30 hoping to enjoy the normally delicious tapas the whole experience was disappointing and not a good value as the meals were not as good as normal menu.

    I can in for dinner last night and the food, atmosphere, and overall time was fantastic. The waitress though would make me not want to come back again. She didn’t say her name, or even talk to us that much. She didn’t smile and wasn’t friendly in the slightest. When we got our food she never came over to ask if we needed anything or how anything was.
