Village Tavern Birmingham Ratings and Reviews
The service and food--both excellent. This was a birthday dinner for my husband. I called ahead of time to ask that a birthday dessert be brought to the table at the end of the meal. I was told my server would be informed. Dessert never came. The reason called early was so that I didn't have to leave the table and ask that the server bring the desert. I was very disappointed.
The Village Tavern is pretty much my favorite restaurant in Birmingham. The reason I gave four stars instead of five is because: 1) When we made the reservation, we requested a quiet booth. We were seated in a booth, but it was next to family with a young child who would jump up and down on their booth seat and it shook our seat. That was not the quiet seating I requested!
2) All the food was excellent except I ordered the sweet potato fries (which I love!) and when the waitstaff brought them out, they were barely warm. I was very disappointed in not having the hot and crisp fries I should have gotten and barely ate any. I didn't say anything since it was a business meeting and I wasn't comfortable in that setting. My feeling is the waitstaff should check to make sure things are correct before serving the food.
But I still love the Tavern!
La comida buena , sin ser espectacular. Los platillos que pedí los camarones con una salsa de mantequilla con especies , estos con buen sazón , ensalada cesar , esta con poco aderezo por lo que le falto sabor . De plato fuerte el demonico ribeye , esté preparado con un buen término y sabor . Y de postre el warm butter cake muy bueno. Si lo recomiendo y si regresaría
The food was fantastic. Definitely a good deal for the price range. The service and atmosphere could have been a little bit better but you can’t control how some customers act to other people. The inside of the restaurant was fairly loud but the outside dining was a good choice for a quieter environment
My daughters and I had made The Village Tavern our regular brunch place; we're Sunday brunch-goers. From here on out, though, we'll be going somewhere else.
When we first started visiting the Village Tavern, the food was always good and service was friendly and efficient. The last several times we've been, the food has been delivered cold, or the orders were incorrect (I'm not sure why it's a badge of honor for servers to try to remember orders without writing them down; I'd so much rather they be written down and gotten right), or we weren't given silverware after asking several times, or the food took a long time to arrive. My last sandwich was so bad it was nearly inedible. This makes me sad because we thought we'd found a brunch place to settle for a long time to come. We're looking for a new place now, as being served the food we ordered and having it be hot and fresh is important to us. Brunch is our only eat-out opportunity together, and it was a bummer to have it spoiled, not just once, but several times in a row now.
I can’t remember our waitress’s name, but we were underwhelmed by the service. She only checked on us a few times and gave us bread and butter without plates or silverware. The food was good and so was the menu selection. There is something to please almost everyone on the menu. Overall, it was a good date night location, but the service could have been much better.
Our waitress was awesome. Very friendly. The time to get food was very slow and my meal was cold. It was tasty, but should have been warmer. Overall, the food is good, but a little on the pricey side. Some improvements needed in the time it takes to get your food and it should be warm. I will return to give another try, but if not better then I doubt I will return or recommend.
From salad to dessert this is one of the best meals I've had in a restaurant all year. The atmosphere was fun - way better than what I expected. Didn't feel like a "tavern" at all, more like a cross between a romantic place and a cool hot spot. Michael O was a colorful server and added to the pleasantness of our experience. We had a great time and would definitely go back again!
I have been twice in the last two weeks. Server said they opened patio and have new management.
Service last week was not good.
This week service was much better but they were out of my first three entree choices (86) on a Friday night (Bone-in Pork Chop, Chilean Sea Bass and Meatloaf).
