We were immediately seated when we arrived. Nice large booth and our waitress arrived in about a minute after we were seated. The waitress took our drink order and ask if we wanted any appetizers.
service and food was very good. Our friend however, didn't like her salad. it was very small for being an entree and not much protein in it.

Food was rather tasteless and came to our table cold. Nothing good about eating cold salmon when it supposed to be served warm. In addition we were rushed with ordering our meals. We used to come here quite often, but no more.

Restaurant nice, but service....VERY POOR.... Had to ask several times for iseveral items. One entree delivered about 15 minutes before the others. Sent it back because it was getting cold. I know now not to accept the waiter we had in the future.

We are regular customers at Village Tavern and have dined at Village Tavern for years. This was one of our worst experiences at Village Tavern. We waited over ONE hour for our food. No meal is worth that wait.

This was our first visit and we had an excellent dinner. Our server was Jordan and she did a wonderful job. Our food arrived quickly, was hot and tasted delicious. They have a big menu with so many options. Lots of desserts too. Don’t know how we’ve missed this place. Look forward to coming back.

Delicious food. Good wine list and craft cocktails. Best desserts in town! Lovely ambiance with a huge fireplace and upscale lodge comfort. This place is very popular and fills up fast for dinner.

This is our neighborhood gem that always sparkles with friendly staff and service. Today met friends for lunch. Our newly trained server was helpful and gracious Alicia. She knew we were not in a rush but kept a watchful eye on us, never hovering. Alicia had a ready smile and made our whole experience so pleasant.
We are pretty steady customers and my friend pretty much orders the salmon and always has broccoli. It never disappoints her appetite. The menu has something for everyone. Another joyful dining experience.

We took our 17 year old granddaughter for lunch and we were happy to be able to talk because the noise level was low and conducive to conversation. The food was as usual excellent!

Village Tavern is always great— a lot of variety on the menu, and a lively atmosphere. Special shout out to our server on 9/20/19– Holly. She was fabulous, and we had another great experience at VT!

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.
