It has probably been almost 10 years since we ate at the Village Tavern. We loved the restaurant and had great memories meeting with friends. I thought it would be nice to celebrate a birthday and make the drive to the restaurant. It did not disappoint. The service, food and atmosphere are just as great as they were 10 years ago. Hats off to being so consistent after all these years.
Patio was so relaxing and we had a great time. We will be making the drive more often.

A little loud but booth was private enough to have a pleasant conversation with my wife. We had no complaints about our food but every table around us did, some, unlike us, had been there recently and said something had changed. Our server was great. We were seated sooner than promised despite how busy they were at that time. Prices reasonable for gastropub style food. My wife’s order wasn’t 100% correct but we didn’t want to be another complaint for the manager who looked a little beat down by the time we were done eating vs when we were seated. Would try again.

We've eaten here quite a few times over the past several years. Obviously we like it or we wouldn't keep coming back. The food and service are consistently good. The menu offers a wide variety, and prices are moderate being in the $12 to $20 range for many items. We went most recently on a Wednesday evening for the half-price wine. The bar was very crowded, and the restaurant was almost full. We were somewhat surprised at the noise level of the restaurant. It was quite loud and would have been difficult to carry on a conversation if it wasn't just the two of us. Other than the noise, it was a good dining experience.

Service not up to standards. Server a bit brusque, particularly when food was delivered on two small plates instead of one properly plated and garnished.
I’ve ordered scoop of chicken salad with sliced tomatoes many times, and it never tasted heavy with bleu cheese. Apparently the recipe has changed.

Great spot to enjoy a tasty meal with family and friends. Varied menu with lots of great choices. I had the Cobb salad and it was very good. Good portions. Great for any occasion, from birthdays to anniversaries and more. Lodge feel decor.

We are frequent visitors to The Village Tavern over the years and found the food to be very good as usual. We had a great waiter, Keegan, who had a nice personality. We did have an issue with getting wrong drinks for our guests that were dining with us but once it was brought to our waiters attention he got the right drinks from the bar. Service was a little slow in refilling my ice tea. Our guests ordered the Grouper entree but then after the order was placed our waiter had to come back and tell us there was no more Grouper entrees. I think the waiter should have known that and let us know as soon as the request was made. These little mishaps by no means affected us negatively....mistakes happen.

This is a consistently good place. There is something for everyone. Make sure you do an Open Table the day before.
They get real busy. The Pork Chop is my favorite. Servers are all good. But you should ask for Jesse.

We always really like the food here and dine here about once a month. We were a bit disappointed this time though I ordered the marinated flank steak which is one of my favorites at Village Tavern. It was a bit tough this time and the black beans appeared to have been sitting for awhile. Not awful but not the great food that we are accustomed to at Village Tavern

Village Tavern provides great steaks for a reasonable price. They also have a strong draft beer selection. Our server this time was a bit inattentive and confused, but the team concept provided her strong support. This is our favorite place in Scottsdale, but do make reservations to avoid a wait.

I have been to Village Tavern many times and always had a good experience.

FAmily coming in from out of town so I wanted a place with good food, ambience and a place to talk. All was great. Res at 6:30 which was honored immediately, comfortable booth and outstanding service....if anything food arrived maybe faster than we expected. Only complaint was that initially very noisy , but it calmed after a bit. Yes I would definitely return and recommend.

Food was so-so but plentiful. Suggest sharing an entree and they are happy to split the dish for you. Unfortunately, both halves may not arrive at the same time! We waited several minutes for the other half of our fish and chips to be served. Then, it was gummy and tasteless.

Hot fudge sundae was good, though.

Love this restaurant. Go off hours during snowbird season! The lady at the reception / reservation desk outstanding. Friendly, warm and greeted us by name. The best person for this area. Probably the most outstanding person in this area that I have ever come across. Keep this lady and give her a raise!
