Just a great place to eat overall. Great quality and quantity food for the $ without a doubt. Service is always great and area is always clean and comfortable. Jessie the manager is the best. Always makes sure I’m taken care of. I come there specifically for the New York strop steak, and if it’s always on point. Love this place.

As always Village Tavern is great. Our last visit was especially great due to our fabulous waitress Holly. She was the quality you would expect in a very expensive restaurant! Thank you Holly for a wonderful dining experience. I recommend the Shrimp Scampi, served over angel hair pasta, and the New England Crab Cakes. Delicious and both are great as left overs. Wed. is 1/2 off glasses and bottles of wine. Go and enjoy a lovely meal, nice atmosphere, great service and real value for your money. Nice job Village Tavern. And I am very picky!

They have basically gone bad. Service is bad and not trained properly.
We are neighborhood customers that has a good experience once every 3 times. That’s a third of the time.
No thanks.

A bit disappointing. The environment was good. The service was on point. Unfortunately, the food was just meh. Ribeye wasn’t tender at all. The Hemingway Florentine was salty. The appetizers (Ahi Tuna and Wedge Salad) were much better. But for the cost, I would have rather gone to Roy’s or Houston’s.

The dinner was amazing. Started with a couple of craft cocktails that was recommended and spot on. The calamari had a little kick to it. The steaks were outstanding and cooked to perfection.

Village Tavern is our favorite. We go there often and have mostly had wonderful meals. We were there on the August 31, 2019 for my Wife's Birthday with some friends from out of town.
One of my guests ordered the flank steak and it was brought to him cold. He asked for it to be redone and instead of fixing new, they put it under the salamander and that made it well done instead of the way he ordered it, medium. He said something to the mgr on duty and he offered a free desert. They should have made him a new dish. I had the brick chicken that I have had many times and it was undercooked and greasy. They took his dinner off the bill.
We have been going to VT for many years and have loved it there. This was not up to par for you and the Mgr. did not handle it well.
I will continue to come to VT, but I don't think my guests will.
You can do better!!!

I would have rated you higher on ambience but the noise level was terrible. We could hardly hear each other across the table. Love your food. Great value. We have decided to come mid afternoon now instead of putting up with the noise. On your stars I would not say the noise was "energetic" but rather very annoying.

We have continually made reservations with the hope the bar area has openings. The food and competitive prices keeps us coming back however we relish the quiet of the bar area to dine and have meaningful conversations.

Most of us had hamburger, all liked them. However I would not recommend the shrimp scampi. Shrimp should be seperate, and not too much angel hair pasta. Had to dig for the shrimp.

Food was fantatstic! Service was solid but not exceptional, management was working as well which is a good sign that service can still improve. Prime rib might of been the best I've had. That's really the only steak ill eat. Definitely a steak house i will revisit.

The food was excellent. My Maple Glazed Pork Chop was easily the best chop I have ever had. My wife's Chicken Marsala was also very good. The service was fine, although our waiter never asked us how our food was, but he was readily available if we would have had an issue or needed anything. What impressed us the most was the fact that we were running late and they were very understanding when we called to let them know. They said they would hold the table for us, but that we may have to wait a bit when we got their. We actually arrived 35 minutes late, and when we got there, there were several people waiting for tables, but we were seated immediately. We were very surprised, and, of course, very pleased. The atmosphere and style of the restaurant was more upscale than we were expecting for a place with "tavern" in its name. All in all, we had a great meal and a very nice time. Prices were reasonable. Will definitely go again if we are in Scottsdale again.
