This is one of our favorite "Go To: spots-we have never been disappointed at the Village Tavern. We ate outside and it was delightful. As always, service was polite, friendly and attentive and the food was great.

Used to frequent VT but haven’t been in a year. Not sure what happened but food quality was terrible this time. Everything we ordered was nowhere near the level of the past. Disappointed to say the least.

My sister-in-law and I ate lunch at Village Tavern a few days ago. As always, we were delighted with our visit; we have never been disappointed. We both chose salads, and they were outstanding! We will keep returning to this favorite neighborhood restaurant.

There are 4 of us friends who worked together for 30+ years. Until recently, the idea of getting together for a good meal was not a reality- however, circumstances change and Sunday has been our day to meet up. Village Tavern is close to our church and we go to an early service and then to brunch. Every time we meet at VT has been wonderful! It’s our” default” restaurant if we don’t have something in mind- it’s just that good!!

The restaurant experience was outstanding!!! Brittany did a marvelous job in serving our table and allowing us plenty of time to make choices. It was not loud in the main room and the food is over the top.
We will come often for the crab dip.....just awesome!!! AND all food items were reasonably priced. We had so much that we came home with three carry-out boxes.

In Charlotte for a wedding and staying at the Renaissance Hotel nearby. We wanted a lunch place that was close and had a good variety of menu items to please everyone in our groups needs. The Village Tavern hit if out of the park - numerous choices to please everyone and excellent quality of food. They were able to accommodate any special requests and we left happy and satisfied.

Food was great! Restaurant was really nice. Sat in the patio area last Friday, service was a little slow but the waitress was a little busy. No biggie.

As always, we enjoyed our meal. Service was friendly and efficient, patient (have elderly parent who didn't like her soup and changed it), and attentive. Comfortable booth, good food, and they don't rush you. A great place to bring friends!

They need to cleanup the patio. Furniture looks tired, ground is dirty and ambiance poor.

Chris, our waitress understood that my friend and I were visiting and in no rush.
When she served the appetizers, she said she would check with us before putting in the entree orders. She was thoughtful and knowledgeable.

The food was good although entrees arrived luke warm and our waiter was not very efficient. Drink orders were late and wrong, waited 35 minutes for appetizers and he could not get our check broken out correctly - we finally just paid and agreed to settle up after. Better training for wait staff is definitely needed.

I was surprised by this experience. After living in Atlanta and working in Alpharetta, I'm familiar with Village Tavern there. The ambiance at the Alpharetta location is by far much better. The food was good, but overpriced. Two tacos, a small side of rice and beans and tea was over $20 including tip for lunch. I'll return to the Alpharetta location when in the area, but not the Charlotte location.

Our reservation was 6:15 p.m, we waited until 6:27 p.m. to get asked for our drinks as the waitress walked by us twice asking other patrons if they were ok but not acknowledging our table. It was my wife's birthday in which I placed in the reservation and the hostess acknowledged. Outside of that acknowledgement, there was not any other acknowledgment by the hostess or manager that stopped by. The food was very good but the last several times we have eaten there the service has not been that good.

A fly buzzed around our table. It flew in the filtered water bottle. We trapped it. Meal was great after that excitement.

It was almost the perfect meal. Great brunch menu with something for everyone. Unfortunately, our food took over and hour to get to us. Our waitress disappeared and other wait staff were busy taking care of their tables so it was hard to get anyone’s attention. My order came incorrect but the step in waiter was quick to fix it. Despite the poor service experience, we will probably go back. Being able to have everyone in our party find and enjoy their food was a first! We will give our waitress a pass and keep our fingers crossed that next time we can give it all five stars!

We had not been to Village Tavern in quite a while, and were very disappointed to see the quality of food has gone down. Even the great fries are no longer great. Bummer. This place used to be a classic you could count on.

I had been to VT several other occasions and had a very good experience overall. Four of us went on a Thursday night and sat for over 3 hours watching the tables next to us turn over several times. Our waiter was absent most of the night and we had to request water and bread several times during the evening. We ultimately had to seek out the Manager, who apologized for not being present on the dining floor most of the night. For some reason she was caught up in the kitchen most of the evening. They did have a very large party that night, but our waiter was not assigned to that table. We were served the wrong meals at first and one person received the wrong change for her tab. Overall, not a good experience. The Manager did present each of us with a $20 voucher and apologized for the service.

Great menu selection, comfortable booths, exceptional food! Server Kevin's attention and charm more than made up for some slight delays in the service process on this particular visit. Looking forward to our next time here!
