About the restaurant
We understand that given the current circumstances everyone would prefer to sit outside on our patio. As such, we will do our best to accommodate these requests, but patio seating will remain first come, first served, and we will not be taking reservations for the patio. Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

Born out of our love of fine wines and culinary excellence, Village Martini and Wine Bar has become the top hybrid Wine Bar/Restaurant in Chagrin Falls, OH since 2012.

Featuring an always conscience serving staff as well as a full happy hour, app, dinner, & dessert menu, we are open 7 days a week.

Come and relax and have fun! Eat nutritious local produce from our vegan menu, spoil yourself with high quality meats, cheeses, & seafood, or just enjoy drinks with your friends, family, or colleagues.

This has been our third experience at Taste. We can say for certain that the food, service and ambiance are second to none! The place has a cool vibe. There was a piano player on Saturday night when we went that just added to the enjoyment. Highly recommend the mussels. Never over cooked and the broth they are in nicely complements them. Would highly recommend.

I brought my hand bell choir here last night from St Ignatius of Antioch (West and Lorain) to celebrate our year. We didn’t gather at Christmastime, and one of our members was out for months recovering from surgery. As usual, our dinner was excellent - absolutely no complaints. Everyone also took a dessert home. Thanks for providing an excellent meal to celebrate our music year!
