All four of us had a great time, and each enjoyed our meal. We all ordered flights of wine, which restaurant makes, and were pleased with our choices.

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.

Entrees were a little pricey for the amount of food you received. Wine prices were higher than expected. Service was excellent our waitress was great and very friendly. The atmosphere was welcoming and at a good noise level

We've been here several times but we were disappointed with service, which led to disappointment with food. We never saw waitress after the food was brought to us by server. My pizza was soggy and underdone but I ate it since waitress never came back until we asked for check. This might sound pretty but she handed me my straw holding the tip. That is waitressing101- how to handle straws and silverware.

Service was very slow and it wasn't busy 4:00 pm. Waitress was not pleasant. We had to ask for the specials. When we got the order it came wrong and cold. I would not go back again. Bad experience for a first timer.

When making the reservation, I was asked if there was anything special. I wrote a note stating it was to celebrate my wife’s 45th anniversary with her company. The restaurant never got that note. I was very disappointed.

It was just okay. They were out of the wine (the reason I drove over an hour to go there for my birthday) and the server seemed bored. He was in a rush to move plates and cups off my table; I’m a slow dinner. But, the food was pretty good though. Also, not sure why I needed a reservation, the place was pretty empty and I was forced to take an early diner reservation.

We ordered a bottle of Gruener Veltliner, it tasted like a chardonay blend at best. We sat out doors. Dining area was not clean. Service was painfully slow.

For two people, hard of hearing, this place excels at creating a restaurant environment that enables conversation. The food and drinks are outstanding. We are eager to join the wine tasting/drinking/buying club. Very friendly atmosphere. All good! Highly recommend.

Very poor service. Waited 2 hours for pizza because kitchen was backed up. Couldn’t taste the food due to cook’s infatuation with garlic. How does the oven get backed up on Tuesday when nobody is there and it’s half price pizza. Manager comped half the bill and still wouldn’t go back except for wine or beer.
