We chose this location to meet friends from out of town as it was easy to access. Having eaten here before, I knew the quality of the food would not disappoint and the menu has something for all taste. Our waiter was Timothy and he was attentive without being disruptive. He gave us plenty of time to visit with our friends and not feel rushed.

We are regulars at Village Tavern and usually have a great meal and good service. Seth was our server and he was hands down the best server we’ve had in years! He made sure our orders were perfect and provided excellent service.

Cozy ambiance, not too loud but a nice hum in the room, excellent wine list especially by the glass, fresh food properly prepared and served by friendly, competent servers. I'm a bit of a foodie and enjoy exploring but time after time I come back to Village Tavern. I know I will have a great meal in a comfortable environment for a reasonable price. My "home" Tavern is in Greensboro but I had occasion to try both the Winston Salem locations recently. I had an issue with my phone and directions...was late for my reservation and went to the wrong location. Both location's staff were helpful, friendly and patient. I'll be happy when my local V.T.'s renovation is complete but will happily visit either of the Winston Salem locations until then.

We did go on New Years Eve and made a reservation. We got there about 30 minutes early and checked in. They seated people who came after us who did not have a reservation. I feel we should have been seated prior to them without waiting for our reserved time. Once seated, we ordered a local wine which they were out of and they were out of prime rib. The bread was also not ready and the waiter apologized several times for the lengthy bread delay. Our steaks were awesome as was the service from our waiter. Even though it was New Years Eve, it did not seem anymore busy than usual. I don't think there is an excuse for being out of such common items such as prime rib and local wine. We also gave our adult children gift cards for this restaurant and hope they are satisfied. We will return and give it another chance due to the food was delicious and the service was awesome. Just the above fews things that rubbed us wrong, especially at this upper price point.

Some of our food was delivered cold. The wait staff made it right. My wife's fish was perfect,my chicken was okay, dry in places. The menu said it included procuito (sp) but there was none. The green beans were perfect. We had a late reservation but one call and Katelyn worked us in earlier. Our waitress was great! Attentive, not hovering but got the job done.

We had another wonderful New Year's Eve meal at Village Tavern. This is a special treat for us each year. We had an outstanding waitress. Chloe was so pleasant and seemed very happy waiting on us. The food and environment was outstanding as usual. Looking forward to our next meal there.

We got seated right away with the reservation, however, we had to track down our waitress by getting another server to find her. We then had to wait almost an hour on our food because the"Kitchen was backed up" When our food arrived it was cold, we had to repeatably ask for drink refills, ketchup, and things like that. I have eaten here several times and this was the poorest food quality and service we have ever had here.

Our server britanny h started off great. But then when ordering one of our collegues ordered her dish specifically without rice bc she has Seliac disease. She did not tell her of the allergen just specifically said no rice please. Well it was apparent that the cooks misread or expo did before sending out food and corrected by taking the rice off BUT didn’t replate the plateware so there was rice all over the remaining items. At no time did she blame the server but as we informed her that she needed a new plate bc of that she scolded our friend by saying you shoud have told me you were allergic ,especially if you go out to eat and I’ll give you cpr etc. etc. a simple I’m sorry let me fix that would have sufficed. My friend wouldn’t even look at her the rest of the meal bc she felt ashamed even though she shouldn’t have. There is too much other to tell but needless to say we won’t be back for awhile. I’ve been a fan and eaten there a lot but I’m quite embarrassed and honestly the service has gone down over past few years....

THE REASON FOR OUR VISIT WAS CELEBRATE OUR 29TH ANNIVERSARY.
The waitress gave us happy anniversary when she seat us which is fine, we expected a little detail at the end of our diner (may be a visit from the manager or a little cake with a candle or something).
My baked potato was cold, I call the waitress and she heat it up and then was fine.
we always order the apple glazed pork shops, before you served 2 now is just one
we don't know if you changed the recipe but the previous one was better

The food was good, as usual. However, we substituted a salad instead of beans and were charged over $5.00 extra. This possibly was in the menu, but neither of us noticed it. I think the server should have made sure we were aware of this surcharge so that we had the option. Ten extra dollars to the bill for salad (although good) was quite unexpected.

We had 6:15 reservations (Sunday )and arrived about 6:10. Our table wasn’t ready so we waited at the bar. It was about 7:00 when the guy waiting on us at the bar suggested we sit at a booth in the bar since our table still wasn’t ready. The wait aside, everything was wonderful! Our server, David, was extremely helpful, pleasant and accommodating. He even gave us a free appetizer. Loved the food! Once we were seated (at the bar), it was a wonderful dining experience.

We have eaten at Village Tavern many times and the food has never disappointed. The service is always excellent and special requests are handled with grace. When the restaurant is very busy, we will eat at one of the tables in the bar. The servers there are fun and attentive. One aspect that management needs to address are kitchen workers who smoke. Somehow the odor wafts into the bar and is unpleasant. Otherwise, our visit was perfect!
