Reasonably priced, good wine. Service could have been better at start but got better.

I really enjoy Village Vintner. The atmosphere is really nice and "vibey," - especially for the suburbs. Staff is great. Food is good. I think it's a good value for the overall experience. I visit often and would definitely recommend!

Excellent food and service. Music was a little loud and along with the very loud group of women next to us made it hard to hear each other. No fault of the restaurant.

This was our first time at the Village Vintner. It won't be our last. My husband and I went on a Sunday and they have a rib special, full slab for a great price. And the ribs were excellent. The fish and chips were also great. They have a unique slaw as a side which I found to be very tasty. Our server Marc was very congenial and attentive. We were able to sample a couple of different wines before settling on a bottle of Pinot noir. Overall everything was great. Can't wait to go back again.

This was a first visit. We ordered 2 appetizers to begin, the one we tried and didn't like at all. Left over 3/4 if it. When server came, we mentioned we didnt like it. No offer for us to try something else or to comp.

We were sat kind of towards the back right outside the ladies room. Not much to look at besides a couple doing a wine tasting at a bar in the back. Drinks were good. We had the jumbo pretzel as an appetizer which was great although I didn’t care for the cheese dip. I had the spinach salad for my main meal with grilled chicken. The salad was very good but the chicken was a very small portion and very dry. Service was very good. Will give it a try again.

Usually very good, this time not so much. Salad’s protein portion was very small for the money and salad dry/not well assembled. Service was very slow even though place was not busy.

I doubt that we would go back. Our flight of wine was nice but the $16 cheese and meat board was lacking as only one piece of meat was provided. I typically expect some sort of sausage to be part of this and a cracker but instead a cut up pita was part of it. Entrees were fair but carrot cake for $12 from a third party vendor was a little unreasonable.

We love Village Vitner, the wine, the beer and most of all the food. I'm sad because everyone has figured out how good it is and now it gets packed on Friday and Saturday nights.

Ordered the Pulled Pork Mac-N-Cheese and it was not pulled pork. It was giant chunks of pork that were so fatty they were awful and did not get eaten. I usually enjoy the food here but was highly disappointed.

I've been here a few times, my husband is a huge fan of a couple of their beers. I enjoy a few of their wines. The service is always a bit thin and slow, but the food makes up for it.
Brought a friend here for the first time, we wanted to do a couple flights of wine to try some different things. The server knowing this, didn't tell us they didn't have flight glasses available until we'd picked out our flight. He said they could not under any circumstance serve a flight in any other glasses....

My meal came out severely under cooked and had to send it back twice, which then they forgot about it. My meat was cooked well, but veggies and rice hard. Our server was rather MIA the entire time, we had to keep flagging down other staff to get help.

The Chef did come out and apologize and tried to make things right. My friend said she'd come back cause the food and wine were tasty, but hopes the staff gets better.

Food didn't taste as good as the first time we went to eat there. I brought friends over and they weren't in love with the beers. It wasn't bad; just ok. Server was very good though, and she's very attentive.

Upscale food and drink. Seems their strengths are in the burgers, entrees, and woodfired pizza. The appetizers are top notch though you pay the price. go back again? absolutely!

This was my first time taking my boyfriend and dad to Vintner, and they both said they would go back. The food is always wonderful, our drinks were always full, and our waiter was very attentive. I love that our shared salad was split between plates with no upcharge. Thank you!

Really nice ambiance. We did a wine/beer tasting before sitting at our table. I didn't like that you had to choose to go either sweet or dry and you couldn't mix and match. I like red wine, but I also like sweet fruit wine. I had to switch off the dry tasting because the first two were so bad! None of the beers were that great, but the wine was OK. We got the goat cheese appetizer and it was great. My in laws both got fish and chips, I got a pizza and my fiance got the tacos. All the food was great except the tacos, they looked great-steak was cooked to perfection but had literally ZERO flavor. We had great service and over all I would go back, but some things can use improvement.

A brewery and winery together plus food. How can you go wrong. Met friends for lunch and had a nice time. Flights of wine and beer and a small sample if you just want to taste before you buy.

First time here at the Village Vintner and very surprised about the ambiance, the service and the food. Nicole was great, our server, and made us feel right at home. Did not rush us, we were hear for a relaxing lunch, and she did not disappoint us. Food was great and great portions. Joined the Wine & Growler Club. We have been living here is Algonquin for two year and did not realize this great restaurant was here. We will make the Village Vintner a monthly visit.
