Village Tavern Birmingham Ratings and Reviews

We made a reservation for two three days in advance. After browsing the menu online we had strong ideas of the dishes we wanted to order. Upon arriving there was no table reserved, but no wait. We were greeted by a friendly server but immediately told they were out of sea bass, pork chops, prime rib, Ny strip, fish and chips, and grouper. Fairly disappointing for a 7:30 on Sunday night when we planned to order fish. I had shrimp tacos, and spouse had filet. The tacos were great! Filet was good but just slightly overcooked. For all of the disappointment of the menu we were offered dessert at no charge. We selected the butter cake and the server gladly accepted a substitution of caramel sauce instead of berries. The dessert was out of this world yummy and sort of made up for the rest. I suggest coming back, but not on a Sunday night!

Did not feel the restaurant delivered on the expectations set by the website. There was no cappuccino, my tomato basil soup was barely warm and my chicken spinach salad was drowned in dressing making it too difficult to eat. Was very disappointed.

The food, service, table, etc were all good and I would have rated it higher, but when the bill came I was only given the total due and not an itemized bill. I thought it seemed a bit higher than it should be so I asked for an itemized bill. Sure enough, there were two items on my ticket that we didn't order and I had to point it out to the waiter and get a corrected bill. People can make mistakes, but that is a pretty bad one to make. I shouldn't have to worry that I'll get charged for something that I didn't eat.

We have enjoyed dining regularly at the Village Tavern for about 6 years. Very nice bar area and very nice dining room. Generally, dinners are very good and worthy of praise. Some of the items on the menu marked "New" and pushed by their servers are overpriced and just OK. Would recommend some of their older menu standbys which are quite good.

I love the Village Tavern, and I make sure to get a meal there almost every time I'm in Birmingham. I especially enjoy the Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs with candied bacon. The bacon-wrapped scallops are always a favorite too, and I've never had a bad thing to say about anything on the menu.

Should've known that things weren't going to be up to the normal standard when the server couldn't explain the difference between a regular ribeye and the Delmonico ribeye other than it being thicker because the uncooked weight was more..
Appetizer was good.
Main courses arrived
My steak was below par but edible and I was starving, dates steak was tougher than old boots.
To give them credit, the manager replaced her steak but by the time that arrived we had both finished sides etc. Her replacement steak tasted divine, nothing like the one I had in taste or texture.
Honestly I think we could've had comparable service and food at Longhorn, not impressed at all..

Good assortment of foods on the menu. I went there for brunch on Sunday and it was delicious. My girlfriend got the eggs Benedict and that was really delicious and I got the chicken and waffles. Would highly reccommended this to families and small parties. If go on Sunday make sure to call for a reservation. Sundays get busy

The Village Tavern is one of my go-to restaurants for a business lunch. The menu selection is varied, the wait staff professional and attentive, the food is excellent and the noise level is moderate enough allowing for conversation.

Apptizers were good to share; especially the nachos (healthy portion). The 14oz ribeye was flavorful, but the quality of the meat was not the best. It was a little tough to cut, despite asking for a rare cut. The desert choices were food as well.

My best friend is taking the CPA exams and she needed a girls day to not think about school. I was excited to take her to village tavern because we had never been and it got such great reviews. We had a horrible experience and will probably never return. We didn't get our salads for 45 mins after we had been there. Once our salads came there was bread on my gf salad so they had to make a new one. Then shortly after receiving our salads we got our meals only to find that they brought my friend the wrong item. She ordered one thing and they brought something completely different. I notified the waiter and my friend being the nice person she is said it was fine she would eat what they brought. I got spinach, mashed potatoes and salmon. The mashed potatoes tasted awful! Im not sure what seasoning was on them but it tasted like a barn smells. The spinach tasted like boiled canned spinach too. I was very disappointed in my meal. The salmon was tasty but it was nothing to go back for. My friend didn't finish her meal either and said it wasn't good. We were in the restaurant for an hour and a half for just two people. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We ordered 3 eggs Benedicts. 2 were prepared just right, 1 was over cooked not once but twice. The potatoes arrived to the table after the meal was served, to us that meant the kitchen staff wasn't able to keep up with the volume, and the plates didn't look complete. The manager did comp the eggs that were not prepared to restaurant standard which was much appreciated.

We have dined here many times and been satisfied. On Sunday we had brunch here and ordered brunch and lunch items. The food took forever to get and when we did it just wasn't good. The manger was more than nice and he was the best thing about the whole experience

Village Tavern provides a consistently excellent lunch experience. I've never had a problem with the food or service. The menu offers a nice variety, and the recipes/presentation are creative without being goofy. On this particular visit we had a conscientious but inexperienced waiter whom I would only rate as "good", but we were seated within 60 seconds of our arrival, so I rated our overall service as "very good."

The food-horrible! We ordered a pimento cheese fondue with vegetables. It was this cheese glop(?) of it all coming up in one spoonful. The cucumbers were so old-they were slimy and hardly resembled any vegetable at all. I ordered the eggs Benedict with sautéed spinach and a tomato and onion mixture with the hollandaise sauce on the side. The sauce was cold, the eggs were cold and the sautéed spinach was this frozen mess made to look like something green. Tomatoes and onion weren't present at all!
Don't waste time or money on this place!!

Although a slow night for restaurants ( football season) it took quite a while to get our food. We were told there was a " large party " ahead of our order. At any rate, the food was good. The drinks were also good albeit skimpy as if measured by Scrooge himself. We had a Delightful server in Raven. Would return but have several other favorite dining establishments ahead of the line.

Very enjoyable dinner. Loved my filet. The spicy fried calamari appetizer was divine.
Broccoli side dish was very tasty! Wedge salad enjoyable as well. I would recommend Village Tavern. We did have reservations but I don't believe we HAD to have them.

We often have dinner at the Village Tavern and heard they had "the best Sunday brunch" in town. We made a reservation and brought friends after church. The service was fine, but we were disappointed in the brunch. I had the Village Tavern Benedict. It would have been excellent if it had been served hot. Instead, it was barely warm and the plate was cold, making it worse. My husband ordered a side of the maple sugar bacon. It came as four strips sealed together - he could not even pull them apart. It was tough like jerky and a challenge to chew. The apple walnut muffinswere tasty, but would have been even better had they been served warm. We'll probably give the brunch another try, but will make sure to convey our concerns beforehand!

I had the "steak and eggs" but my steak was over cooked. Not sure the ratio of egg/hash brown/ steak was quite right for the price. (Way more egg) My wife had the same and her steak was cooked correctly. We'd go back, nothing bad to say but won't be on our regular rotation of dining spots.

My wife and I celebrated our 17th anniversary here. The restaurant is very classy with tall ceilings, dim accent lighting, and the staff dressed in black. The menu was extensive, the prices were reasonable for an upscale restaurant, and our server was perfectly attentive. The food was absolutely scrumptious. We each cleaned our plate and then splurged with the enormous double cheesecake. It was a fantastic evening and I will be going back soon. Thanks!

When my wife booked the reservations, she noted in comment section that we were out celebrating our seventh/7th wedding anniversary. We chose Village Tavern over Perry's Steakhouse. To say the least, we were very disappointed in our food overall.
Firstly, my Spring Rolls was very good, however, my wife Pimiento Cheese Deviled Eggs came out, the bacon was cold and still had grease on it, yuck! When I brought to my waitress attention, she didn't give, I'm sorry or anything, she suggested getting me more, however, my wife didn't any eggs after that.
Secondly, I ordered the blackened Chicken Alfredo, I've had better from Olive Garden! My wife ordered, a sirloin steak, I know the bottom of the steaks, however, she's had better from Outback, our dinner was such a let down.
Thirdly, we ordered dessert, needless to say, it was the best part of our dinner, The Warm Butter cake, it was delicious.
Our waitress was nice but overall experience was not a good one, and if we return it would only be for the dessert.
I wouldn't recommend to friends.
