A great family birthday bash. Everyone enjoyed their Little Village favorites. I recommend the meatballs and spaghetti with a sensation salad. Others in our party enjoyed lasagna and their seafood medley. Village bread with teppenade and garlic is a must. Waiter was attentive and courteous.

Food was good, only complaint is my food wasn't hot, it was barely warm. We had five in our party and all the other plates were hot (saw steam coming out), perhaps it sat waiting for other food to be ready. Toasted ravioli appetizer was delicious and the bread was great. Everybody in my party loved their food choices. Dessert was a big hit, I got the cannoli, it was great but my daughter and I could have shared as there were two huge cannolis, brought one home for my husband.

Village bread good as usual. The crawfish cheesecake app was also delicious. Seafood pasta entrée was good. Did not care for the Fish Limon. Had a strong seasoning such as curry or turmeric which I didn't care for. Wish I had ordered another entrée but know not to order this one next time. We were celebrating a birthday and most restaurants offer a complementary desert but we were not here.

As always, it was great. It seemed noisier than usual, but there were a few large parties near us. I ordered a drink recommended by our waitress and I ended up not liking it; it wasn't an issue and was handled right away and professionally. Our waitress was fantastic and so was the food.

The food was great. Service was not so great. We had to ask for our waiter to come to our table. Once we received the waiter, he was very attentive but we should not have to ask for the waiter.

Very loud- hard to hear across a table or server. Food was mediocre in quality and taste. Village bread is always a win, but I don’t think I will go back just for the bread. Ordered veal piccata and veal was tough- eggplant Napoleon- fried crawfish on top were cold and tough- not freshly fried for sure. Just disappointed.

10 of us went to celebrate my birthday and it was all quite enjoyable. We had our own little room which was great. The food was excellent and the bread goes without saying. The only complaint I heard was that The after dinner coffee was old or Burnt, but I don’t drink coffee so it did not much matter to me. I like the location, the food, And the server who waited on us was excellent and so was her help.

It was my first time eating here. I read a lot of mixed reviews. I made reservations so there was no wait time for a table. Everyone was friendly and we enjoyed our dinner.

Our servers were the best! Everything was timed perfectly. That bread was so delicious we ordered a second one! I selected "quiet" for the noise level, but we had such a fun, happy time (laughing and talking with each other) that others near us may have selected noisy! :-)

Great experience.

My food was good but the pasta tasted a little underdone. The greens were fantastic. I wish our waiter was around a little more but overall he did a great job. I enjoyed dessert so much and highly recommend the cannoli. I wish you had a rose or sparkling rose on the menu.

I had a party of 9. Service was excellent. Very friendly and knowledgeable about special menu items. Order was taken and delivered without error. We ordered multiple appetizers, salads, drinks and main courses from Italian specials to steaks. Food was prepared to order and served all at once at the proper temperature.

Service: Excellent, as always.

Food: We started off with the beef arancine, which was the first time we tried this appetizer - love their red sauce!! It was a great choice. Of course, the house salad is a must and the bisque never disappoints. Our main course was the sea bass and speckled trout. We loved both our dishes and they were perfect portions for a late dinner. Definitely filling.
Can't wait to return to order the bread - nothing else quite like it! YUM!

Atmosphere: The noise level wasn't too bad this visit & had the perfect ambiance.
It's one of our favorite places to go, either as a couple or with friends!
