Featuring a comprehensive selection of more than 200 whiskeys alongside what has been called the country’s best burger, Village Whiskey is an instant classic. Envisioned by Chef Garces as a spot where he and his team could enjoy a drink and a snack after a long night in the kitchen, the restaurant’s focal point is the central bar that is home to their near-encyclopedic catalogue of Chef Garces’ favorite spirit, whiskey. Our able bartenders shake and stir classic and contemporary cocktails in a space evocative of a Prohibition-era speakeasy.

    Great burgers and fries. I enjoy it as a lunch spot, although seating at high tops very close together is a bit uncomfortable. So not good for business chats. Went for Restaurant Week, but better deal was just ordering off the regular menu, which was just fine.

    Our party of 8 had a great time here for restaurant week. We were seated in the second space with bigger tables which was nice and roomy. Everyone loved what they ordered off the restaurant week menu (Deviled eggs, snack board, fried pickles for apps, plus chicken caesar sandwiches and salmon BLTs all around for main, then chocolate mousse cakes and little apple pie dumplings for dessert). The restaurant week menu was worth the $25 price for lunch, plus you did have the option to order off the main menu (which some don't let you do during restaurant week). Drinks were fantastic (village 75, Stumble Bee, Ginger Rose-NA were some favorites). Service was wonderful, our server was attentive and friendly. Great spot, will be back!

    The experience was great until the hostess abruptly came to the table, interrupted our conversation, and said, “Hi, so we have another party waiting for this table. Thanks”. There were two open tables in the bar dining room, space at the bar, and certainly space in the next dining room. We were a reservation on a date and were asked to leave without warning any mention of a time limit before hand. We weren’t even given a heads up there were other reservations that would be seated after. It was jarring and rude.

    The food was quite good. We started with fried pickles and roasted squash appetizers. For our mains we had the chicken milanese sandwich and steak frittes. Both prepared very nicely. Our server was very friendly and attentive. My only complaint was the decor in their newer dining room space. Too much bare white tile giving it an antiseptic feel. The space needs are or something to give it a warmer atmosphere.

    Probably the worst service I ever received. Can’t even really say that. Cause I got none. Not sure what was exactly happening but staff & management needs to get it together. Someone in the industry and visits tons of restaurants shouldn’t have to beg for a server and the check when he dropped our 2 drinks off and never seen him again. 100% will never return save your money and get a burger from parc, rouge, or dandelion

    I mentioned in my reservation request that we were celebrating a birthday and had grandparents with us. I requested that, if possible, we sit in a quiet location. I was so impressed! We were taken to a second dining area where we were the only customers! We could actually have a real conversation at the table. Our waiter was adorable. He was relaxed and friendly and, most importantly, knowledgeable. Excellent value! The special burger was fantastic (and that coming from my NYC mother is quite the compliment!) We will return!

    The drinks were good but the food was just ok. My smash burger didn't have a lot of flavor and my salad was ok. The duck fat fries are not crispy and my boyfriend's house burger was ok. I would come back for a few drinks but I wouldn't get any food.

    We got put in the overflow room which was soulless and devoid of any energy. There were two large groups so the server was overwhelmed and inattentive. We didn’t even get a second round of drinks because she never bothered to come back to ask. Our meal came and they never bothered to get us napkins or silverware. We had to wait an additional 5 minutes for it while our food got cold. The overflow room is detached from the regular restaurant so everything seemed more difficult to order and be served. Overall a less than mediocre place. Highly not recommend. Poor value

    We waited 30 minutes until they took our order then food came out before our drinks with no silverware after asking multiple times. Also forgot one entrée and the waiter told us it would take another 20 to 30 minutes to get that entrée even though everyone else was almost completing their dinner
