We visit this restaurant every time we’re in Charlotte. I love it and I request the same server every single time.

First let me say that this place has been completely remodeled since I've been there 8 yrs ago. I do like new look but first there are a few things that I didn't like. First the service was S-L-O-W. My date and I sat there for quite some time before we even got menu's. 2. The place is NOISY and unless you get a booth then your practically sitting next to the table next to you!!

What I mane by that is your so close that you don't have any privacy. I'd pass on this place for a date but if your in a group then it's good.

We had an outstanding late lunch / early dinner. It was quiet / enjoyable. We weren't rushed and able to enjoy our meal. The food was outstanding. Great recommendations from our server. From wine to appetizers as well as confirmation that our entree's were a great choice.

I've been going here for years. This time, the service was a bit slow at first, so we were a little nervous. The only complaint...the server didn't know how to discuss the beer menu. There is a table-tent menu that had Carolina craft beer selections and she could see I was struggling to find a beer I wanted. She didn't offer any suggestions about ANY beers, but maybe that is because I was looking at the table-tent menu. Anyway, thought it was odd that she didn't mention the featured beers or the other beers at the bar. Luckily I thought to look toward the bar and saw the taps. MINOR complaint though.
Food is always good. And SO much to choose from. We will be back!

First time at Village Tavern and we will definitely go back. Suggest making reservations as it does get quite crowded. I had the fillet mignon and it was perfection. My husband enjoyed his prime rib but admitted the fillet was a bit tastier. Service was great as well. Highly recommend.

Our waiter took too long of spacing checking up on our table. I waited for the bill to come almost 20mins after being finished eating. They were very busy though & overall waiter & restaurant was very good. I will be going back. Enjoyed much!!

VT is one of our favorite restaurants. We usually have really good service , but yesterday was an exception. Our waiter only came by our table once after we had received our food. We had to scope him out and ask for refills of anything. I also had to get a take out box from the very nice hostess because we couldn’t find our waiter.

America took great care of us checking in at perfect intervals but allowing us privacy. Oh, and the chef was so kind to allow us to order a favorite item (pimento cheese fondue) no longer on the menu! Yummy!

Disappointed that they changed their Tavern Rice! Madera sauce for the meatloaf is okay, not great. Would order w/o it next time. Green beans were way overcooked imo but still edible.
My son did not like the Prime Rib (too fatty) & they were gracious enough to switch it for the Chicken Marsala. Great value for restaurant week though bc portions are generous. Beet salad is delicious!! Will remember to order it next time.

I had made reservations through Open Table for 7:30, 1/25, and requested a booth if available, and being that it was during restaurant week, I did not expect to get a booth. Anyway, we arrived at 7:20 and were seated immediately and a booth was available much to my joy! Our waitress was exceptional, and our meals was as well. I live at The Encore, which is diagonal from The Village Tavern, and a number of residents have raved about the grilled meat loaf, to which I had ordered and it was truly an amazing dish. We thoroughly enjoyed our total experience with Open Table and The Village Tavern.

Thank you,
Ron Forfar

I had visited the Village Tavern back in May 2017 on a business trip and absolutely loved the food, the vibe, the service. This time around, the food was a little lacking. My salad was wilted and a bit soggy with the dressing, the fries were mostly dry, and my colleagues tacos were so wet that they fell apart. Service is still great and the selection, very good. I'd probably give it one more try.

I have had several business meals at the Village Tavern. The service and food are almost always great although the wait time after ordering is sometimes longer than comfortable. The staff is always friendly and accommodating.
