                                          We celebrated a birthday at this visit and as always the food was wonderful, staff highly attentive and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening! We had the crusted grouper, branzino and a vegetarian pasta… All were delicious. The French silk pie for dessert was divine.

                                          I personally love smaller BYOB bistro style restaurants like this. The food selection is diverse to satisfy almost anyone. It's prepared nicely and you'll leave satisfied and want to go back.

                                          Terrific food...just the right temperature and very tasty. We got there around 5:15 and it made for a quiet and ambient experience! A nice variety of cuisine and the service was very sincere and prompt. My whole family loved the experience and will be sure to visit there again soon.

                                          This is one of our go to place. Always creative choices and often eclectic. Last night we saw so many apps that we wanted so instead of entree's we did 5 apps that were amazing. Looking forward to seeing the spring menu with should be out soon. Hoping they bring back the tasting menu option since that was the best.

                                          Another great meal at Village Green, the waitstaff is outstanding, always attentive and very pleasant. The food was outstanding my wife had the Long Island duck and I had the Grouper. Both were cooked to perfection. Will be back very soon. Love that it is BYOB so I can bring a really nice bottle and enjoy it with excellent cuisine.
