Wife's steak was undercooked twice. Overheard the kitchen staff being rude about our expressing it was not cooked properly. They brought back the same $35 steak to the table after being cut. Not proper for a restaurant of their supposed caliber.

Little Village/Airline is our "GO-TO" spot for special dinners and date nights. They never disappoint and the food is always excellent. Nightly specials are always mouth-watering and tantalizing and their normal menu items are specialty as well. WE LOVE LITTLE VILLAGE!!

Yummy, Yummy! I thoroughly enjoyed my shrimp and grits. I thought the sauce was lovely. I also tried the soup du jour which was tomato basil. I loved it. I think that Hugh is a wonderful manager. I had a shrimp missing from the entree and he brought me 3 more. Our waitress who is usually the bartender was nice and helpful. She was really on the ball.

We’ve been here several times. Took my wife here for our anniversary recently. The manager provided complimentary champagne and the waitress and greeters were great. Every time we’ve come we’ve had a great experience, with attentive staff and great food. Highly recommend.

 (Los Angeles)·Dined on October 14, 2017

After getting to the Little Village
early, the place was nearly empty. Our server was ver friendly and well spoken. He immediately took our order and brought us our drinks. More people began coming in. There were people at the tabes on each side of us. We kept waiting, and waiting and waiting but no food. The people at the other tables had long been served and left. i complained to our server and he brought over the manager. The excuse was that they had been very busy. Five minutes and we had our food which was like spaghetti and meatballs. it was already prepared type food and just had to be assembled. i would never go back not even for a free meal.

I love the brunch menu. I highly recommend the burger. I hated they didn't have pickles and the hash portion was quite small. Our waiter wasn't the best-he would disappear for a while had to get the manager at one point. Manager and food were amazing.

The seafood medley was full of crab shell and the salad wasn't like I remembered. It had too much vinegar and wasn't evenly distributed with cheese and dressing. Also-The bread pudding was soupy.

The restaurant was great. Open Table made making a reservation very difficult. Until the restaurant opened at 5pm, It said there were no reservations available all night. Then at 5pm there was suddenly availability for any time. I'm glad I took the chance rather than select a different restaurant!

My husband always gets the fried shrimp. They are large, fresh in smell and taste, and with a light tempura batter that doesn't overwhelm the natural flavor. I've tried many items, always very good. Splurged on the filet mignon this time. It was very tender, but undercooked and needed seasoning. Neither of us cared for the mashed potatoes. The bread is always fresh and hot, a must have. No dessert or alcohol, so can't comment on those.

My girlfriends and I wanted to celebrate our 40th birthdays in a special way. Little Village was our only choice. Everyone loves the food, service, and atmosphere. We enjoyed our dining experience. Topping it off was a personal visit with manager, Hugh, who personally wished us a happy birthday and a little conversation. Can't wait to go back! It's an amazing place with an outstanding crew! ♥️♥️

This was our first experience dining here and it won't be our last.
The food was fantastic! I had shrimp and grits from the brunch menu. The best I've ever eaten. The sauce was flavorful and the shrimp tender. The portion was large enough I have plenty leftover. My husband had grilled drum (I would love to find what it was seasoned with) and green beans.
The service was outstanding!
