It was Valentine’s Day, so it was quite a bit busier than usual, but the service was very sub-par and the food was bland. I’m hoping that it was just because of the crowded night, because this has been one of my favorite restaurants

Service was very slow! We had 8 adults and waited quit some time for anyone to even come over after we were seated! Once we got served, however, food was excellent!

We had the margherita pizza and each had a glass of wine at around 11:30a on a Sunday. Cool place. It was quiet when we got there but filled up about an hour after we got there.

Service was very good. The wine and pizza were delicious.

Fun place to go!

I requested a high-table on reservations. We got sat at a regular table all the way in the corner. Our appetizers and entree came at the same time. Felt rushed. Then we were told basically that the next reservation was there waiting for our table... I felt that was very unprofessional and rude; especially since our entree came out with our appetizers. Very disappointed with the service on New Years Eve.

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.
