Nice place owner was very involved and helped us find a good drink and app.
Nice place for quiet conversation. Owner was nice enough to recommend other
alternative spots in Skippack for after dinner drinks
Worst meal ever! Should have taken note of the reviews. Appalling in every way. Cost, presentation, concept, service a joke. Pears in Gorgonzola was a runny wet mess; hummus was indeed like dry sand; sangria was tasteless and had zero fruit. PLEASE CLOSE DOWN! You are a travesty for Skippack dining.
Food was very tasty and priced well. Portions were just right. Service was excellent and friendly. Life Jazz by Hidden Treasure was awesome.
I enjoyed this quaint place & the friendly staff. ( Tess & Daphne) I enjoyed joining the fab musician Scot Silber & look forward to visiting again! I have a number of friends in the area that will join me in the future! Tess..."Black Horse & a Cherry Tree? 😘"
The ambiance was wonderful, and the staff were courteous and friendly. The location is also great, in the heart of quaint Skippack Village. The pita bread pizza on special was delicious, but some of the food we ordered could have been better. (The hummus was very dry, but I'm sure that can be easily adjusted.) However, for the price, the portion sizes are reasonable.
The live entertainment was also good, parking was no problem, and the rooms are appropriately decorated. I had two glasses of Chardonnay, and I enjoyed them.
It was a wonderful place to celebrate a dear friend's birthday!
I noticed on the menu that brunch is offered, and I will be back to try it.
Good food, cozy venue. Drinks were good. Food was also very good. Portions a little small but that wasn't a deal breaker.
My husband and I tried this restaurant because we saw it from the road. The menu selection was limited but the drink selection was good. Atmosphere was cozy and the live music was a nice treat.
Service was slow, food was only ok. Very pricy
Service was terrible. We were there as a group of 6 for a special occasion, and the service turned this into an awkward experience. Food was mostly good, especially the dates that we had as an appetizer. That was the highlight. But we don't plan to go back again. If you go, ask to sit in the fireplace room. It looked like it had better ambiance than our table near the kitchen door. (Our server checked on our order by standing in the doorway and yelling into the kitchen.)
The first thing we noticed about Village Wine Cellar was the ambiance. The Christmas decorations were adorable - the perfect scene for a celebratory dinner. The wine list was really great- we actually liked the Cabernet Franc so much we bought a bottle to bring home! The tapas was great too- many yummy options that we enjoyed sharing. The entrees were just ok- nothing special about the options and they were actually cold when we received them. I would go back and just have wine and the small sharing plates. I probably would not go for an entree again. But we had an enjoyable time, and the service was great as well.
Delicious food and fun drinks- I didn't think it was too expensive at all!
It was quiet when we went however, I could see how the space and seating could make dates and special events hard to hear or enjoy. Plus I only noticed 1 server and she was also making drinks. I could see how a more crowded night would be difficult for her
We ordered the lobster ravioli. The waitress came out letting us know the chef said there are a couple broken raviolis. We appreciated the heads up from the chef but it was a complete understatement. There was not one whole ravioli in the sauce. If the chef new the food wasn't prepared the way they intended it shouldn't have been served. We understood it out the waitress in a tough situation but this matter should have been handled by the chef. Totally unprofessional and an absolutely disappointing meal.
We were seated right next to musicians on the porch, so it was impossible to carry on a conversation. The pineapple mojito tasted like watered down pineapple juice. After serving us, our waitress disappeared. We had to go inside to ask for the check where another waitress gave us attitude.
Overall, I enjoyed coming here. I loved the atmosphere. The wine was very good and the prices for the wine tasting was reasonable. The food menu was small but what we got was delicious. The place was small but they are getting ready to remodel it. It is very cozy and the staff was super nice. There is a really nice outside seating area too. And the center that it is located in is filled with a bunch of different stores. I want to come back and try their brunch.
Went for Mother’s Day brunch. Menù advertised was not what was available/provided. Very disappointing
I took my mom and kids here for Mother's day. It was $30 for an adult and $15 for the kids. When we got there we had to wait 30 minutes for a full cup of coffee. The buffet was something that I could do better in my own house. Bacon and potatoes bin were empty for the full 1.5 hours we were there. The only thing I age was cheese and bread (they didn't have crackers). It wasn't worth more than $5. We ordered a drink and didn't get it until the end of the meal.
I wouldn't go back, and highly recommend you looking at one of the other restaurants in the area who have much better food with similar pricing!
Great place for a girls night out! Food was good and server was spot on with recommendations for how many small plates we needed. Had a great time and would go back.
the service was absolutely horrible. I've never experienced service so bad. it was way overpriced for a couples Valentine. 145 per coupe plus wine at 10 a glass. cost us $200. it was a fixed menu. the filet was tiny maybe 4 oz. it was 4 course and the food was ok but not at $73 per person plus another 40 for wine. we were robbed.
waiter was an amateur which is fine for someone just starting out but wasn't trying so hard. they had 2 people taking care of the entire restaurant. not many people there but they could t handle it. I never made a comment for a restaurant before which tell you how bad this was. I wonder where the owner was, he should have been making sure things were 100#. obviously he or she doesn't care.
Bartender was Awesome, food was great, had a great time, would go back again
Small but tasty selection of wines from a local producer. Very pleasant ambience with small bar tables for couples to enough great tapas, good wine and each other at.
If you are just looking to have a glass of wine or a drink, this is probably an ok place to visit. We tried various selections from the tapas menu and pretty much every one of them was a disappointment. The marinaded artichoke hearts weren't marinaded at all. The roasted red peppers were cold and probably from a jar. I can't speak at all about the entrees. As for the Tiramisu...it was still partially frozen when we got it.
So one of the questions this form asks me is "would I recommend to a friend" and I've responded "No" for now because while I found the experience pleasant enough there were a few things which make me stop short of saying to someone else "Oh you have to try this place".
The Good: Very nice little set up with a couple rooms downstairs which are cozy and perfect for enjoying a snack and a glass of wine.
The Okay: The food I had was tapas which on the whole was very average...not bad just didn't wow me (3 Tapas Plates: $21). The accompaniments on which to spread or dip were very sparse and one note (ie the hummus had seeded flatbread crackers (4), perhaps some veggies would have been nice along with them) and not nearly enough for the dish provided. Wine was good, but the sangria pour was VERY, VERY small (4oz maybe?). Shrimp was watery and tasted like the frozen kind thawed out.
Service: Decent. Friendly enough but not exactly warm and welcoming; however, I think this is a personality thing and not and attempt in any way to be inhospitable.
I will probably give this place another chance because I did enjoy the ambience and the Cab Franc wine. I also always like to see small local places do well.
We both ordered the 8oz filet rare and I was not disappointed. The service was excellent, staff very knowledgable about the wine and recommendations on the menu. Price was average. Two checks one for wine and one for food not a problem it was listed on the menu and on open table. We will be planning on having our company party at this cool place. Great find. We will be back again and again.
The name of the restaurant lured me in as I love wine. I decided to give this place a try for my anniversary. The restaurant stated on there website they would have a Latin jazz band. I was super excited for some fine wine, good food and great music. The wine was unique and the food wasn't what I was expecting. The band was a no show. The expectations of the evening had been a complete failure. The server was the only highlight to the evening. I ordered the fish as my main course but it wasn't fresh. The best part of the meal was the pumpkin cheesecake.
Went out for a date night with my wife. Food was exceptional and the wine selection was great. We enjoyed the whole evening and would definitely recommend to anyone who like wine.
Food was just average. The prices were very expensive. Similar to New York City but the atmosphere , quality and presentation was backward farm country. Portions were rather small but the price was rather large. Very strange payment ...l There were two bills presented on leaving. One for the food and another for the wine I ordered at dinner.
We had visited the Village wine cellar for brunch on Mothers day, we had a party of 8. We had our own private dinning room. Food was awesome so were the mixed wine drinks (Pineapple Mojito Sangria)
we all had two, favorite drink specially for hot days. The food on the buffet was very tasty. Each time something ran out it was refilled shortly after. Service was top notch, the water glasses were filled as soon as we arrived, never did we have an empty water glass.
My husband and I enjoyed is so much we had to come back and try their every day menu. When we got there we were the only ones, within a half hour most of the tables filled up and a few people sat at the bar. We started with bowls of soup and a cheese board. The soup came out with in 5 minutes and the cheese with in 10 minutes. I had the Chicken marsala and my husband had the filet. Both were better then expected. The wait time for dinner was less then 15 min. Want to try the dessert next time.
Our wines of choice were the Cab Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, for PA vineyard they were extremely good.
We have been here server all times and what keeps brining us back is the good wine awesome food and friendly service. They make us feel like we are part of the family.
We have had every thing on the menu and loved all of it but let me list my favorites: crab cakes more CRAB then filler, stuffed peppers generous size, if you get cheese platter must get cheddar Guiness! Entree pesto chicken and the filet! Both are mount watering.
If you are looking for a place to sit for awhile over wine and small plates, this is the place! Very small place, and you can't be in a hurry as there is only one person both tending the bar and serving the food.
The cheese selections were unique and delectable - we were introduced to mango-ginger cheese and loved it!
We had been to the Wine Cellar before for Wine Tastings and had decided on our last visit to try a a Friday night for dinner.
The restaurant was crowded (always a good sign) when we arrived at 8 P.M. , so if you plan on going to the WCB on a weekend between 5 and 8, definitely make reservations.
Hannah our server was very attentive and patient, and did not rush us along. Tara, the owner, also helps customers and makes sure that everyone is having a great time.
The chef's name is Matt, and he makes everything fresh and to order. We each had the Chicken Marsala , which was aside from being picture perfect, was delicious and we split the Roasted Pear Gorgonzola which was also incredible. The wine we chose was the Vigonier (probably spelled it wrong) which is a white semi-sweet wine which we both liked. I recommended to another couple next to our table to try. There are also recommendations on the menu for wine choices that complement the meals.
The WCB is a great place for a nice romantic dinner or a first date. There was a couple at the next table who were there on their first date. There is even a room upstairs with a bar for private parties.
I was told that they usually have live entertainment on Fridays but on this particular night there was no music.
I will definitely go to the WCB again next time I am in Skippack Pike.
I would never recommend this to any friends. My friend and I went after Christmas shopping. The first thing we wanted they didn't have. The remainder of the food was mediocre at best! The service was very good but we were the only people in the restaurant. Very disappointed! Of all the great restaurants in Skippack, this one leaves a lot to be desired! Don't thin I would ever return.
We've been to Village Wine Cellar several times and the food is always fresh, made from scratch and spot on. I've known the chef since he was a Cub Scout and man he can cook! They serve wines from Crossings Vineyards exclusively, but that's ok as they are some of the best in the area. We're especially fond of the Cabernet Franc, which I enjoy even though I'm not a big red wine fan. During the warmer weather we go hang out on a Friday night when there are live local musicians playing on the front porch
Dined at the wine cellar on our anniversary and had an awesome experience! My wife and I could not decide which appetizer was the best. Dinner was outstanding. Service was first class. Each time we finished another dish came out right on time. Can not say enough good things about this place. Will return with friends.
We were excited to explore the restaurants in Skippack since we are settling on a house there next week. First, we were not greeted for 15 minutes by our server who appeared to be the only employee and possibly the manager\owner as well. Our reservation was for 9pm but she said the kitchen was slammed and she could not take our food order right away. When we ordered a bottle of wine, there was a corkage fee of $5. We decided to get the meat plate, which was very disappointing it had low quality cheddar cubed cheese, slimmy prosciutto and pepperoni. We did not order more food bc of the disappointing meat plate. Also we did not have a candle or any light for outside dining. They also required us to pay 2 separate checks, for wine and food.
Thoroughly enjoyed myself at Village Wine Cellar and Wine Bar! Met some new people and ran into some friends! Great food, great wine, great time all around! Will definitely return!
We had a really fun time enjoying our wine tasting. Tara was friendly and knowledgeable and made the experience enjoyable. However, the tapas menu listed on Open Table hasn't started yet. If you are hoping to get some food while you are on Skippack, call ahead to see if the kitchen is open first - or plan to eat elsewhere before or after your trip here.
