We try to go every weekend for brunch; when we do not go is because we are out of town- we always request to sit in Courtney’s section— HE IS SO AWESOME! he remembers our order every single time and is attentive to our needs!
He is a valuable employee and he is always upbeat and shows great enthusiasm and energy every single time we visit!
We look forward to visiting your fabulous restaurant!

Asked for bread and never received any. My wife ordered medium plus steak that came out medium rare. Mine also came out medium rare but I ordered medium so it was close enough.

Not as good an experience as usual.

Village Tavern was great! Always is good. It would our anniversary and was a little disappointed it was not recognized. Perhaps it was communicated although I posted in our the Open Table form. Nevertheless the restaurant is always top notch with great food and service. We are regulars.

I could not be more pleased with the experience we had for a small party for my mother’s 80th birthday lunch. Dana was our server and she was very helpful and attentive and always checking on our party. We were set up in a wonderful area and given an extra table for cake and gifts. I ordered multiple appetizers for the guests to share and everyone raved over the food. Thank you so much for accommodating us so well!

Unfortunately one of our meals was horrible and my husband now feels sick after eating it. My food was good. His had to be sent back twice and now we are wondering why he is feeling so sick - plus it was a $38 entree which adds insult to injury.

Sat at table for about ten minutes before seeing a server. Asked if he was our waiter. He got our waitress and things picked up. My food could have been warmer but was delicious.

Our server, Darryl, took wonderful care of us out for our anniversary. The pimento and cheese deviled eggs were a treat. My wife had the prime rib (big enough the bring some home for an extra meal) and I had the blackened grouper and shrimp. Both, all were wonderful.
A great celebration!

Watered down martini unless you order their ‘signature’ drinks.

Sashimi was coated in WAY too much sesame seed (parakeets would love it!)

Way too much dressing on their salads (lettuce soup). Also their wedge had more in common with a chopped salad. See pictures.

Cheese burnt on the French Onion Soup and onions were both correctly cooked and almost raw. Odds are their practice is to ‘add to the pot’ as it is ordered instead of making a new batch. Broth was good.

Steak good but not allowed to rest after cooking, resulting in a plate full of juice.

Potatoes were good.

Beans were ‘multi color’. Again, this indicates that they are adding to the batch as the evening progresses. This results in some beans done correctly (green, crisp and tasteful) and some over cooked (olive drab, mushy and tasteless).

Service was excellent and had it not been for this we would have walked out,

Very disappointed

Passing through Birmingham on Sunday evening. Used Open Table to book the reservation coming up 280. We were seated promptly. Great menu selection and food was very good. Had we not been traveling, bar and wine selection also looked great. Back on the road in less than an hour. Perfect dinner for us that night.

One order for a filet mingon was grossly under cooked. It was ordered medium but was blood red and cold in the center. Also, the accompanying side of mashed potatoes was also cold.
