This was our first visit and we enjoyed it! We ordered burgers, chicken sandwich and chicken strips plates. Our waitress, Sloan, was awesome! Definitely recommend when you're in the area.

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.

The food at Village Tavern was very good. However, the overall atmosphere felt a little cramped and was loud.

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.

Very nice dinner here on a busy Friday night. Menu is filled with delicious things to eat and our crowd of 5 had many different choices - all FANTASTIC ! While the food was good - the service by our Waiter Courtney was above 5 star ... he's a professional in every way. If you can request him - you won't be disappointed. This restaurant is above the mark for good !

We ate outside on the terrace. Outstanding view. Good food and good times. Service was a little slow but I believe that is because we ate outside. The view made up for the wait time our food however came quickly. All around a great place to eat.

WE have eaten at Village Tavern many times in the past. This was an unusual, terrible experience. We had brunch and the food was terrible. The eggs on a Benedict dish were basically hard boiled eggs. The Florentine omelette was under cooked mushrooms and flavorless spinach folded in some cold, rubbery eggs. The food was really terrible and our server was not around. I don't know what was going on with this location but very disappointed with the quality that has been going down hill in the past few months.

Food felt microwaved. No taste. Spinach artichoke dip had a piece of plastic in it. Waitress said there was “a lot of crap going on in the kitchen” hence the wait on food. When asked if there was a wait on wine, the answer was no. Twenty minutes later, still no wine. Manager apologized twice and removed wine and appetizer off the ticket. Made it right with a dessert on the house. Four other tables near were experiencing the same issues.

Brought out-of-town guests to Village Tavern. We had Open Table reservations and were seated promptly. The service was excellent, as usual, as was the wine and our meals. We can always rely on Village Tavern to make a great impression on our guests!

The food and service are always good. However, on this particular visit the fries were barely warm. We were in a hurry so we didn't say anything to the server. The restaurant should ensure fries (as well as all other food) is hot when served.

We loved our waiter, Will. He was so friendly and helpful.
We also appreciated that they moved us to a table that fit us better without any trouble at all. The food was delicious and we were served our food quickly after we ordered.
