Village Tavern Birmingham Ratings and Reviews
The waiters and the front desk personnel are great. However, we have been going there for many years and the menu is basically the same, with the exception that some things have been removed such as the succotash which was delicious in the summer. They need more seasonal food and also some food that is healthier. The steaks and burgers are great, but if you want anything on the healthy side, it is most difficult and the menu is in dire need of an overhaul. I heard that they were going to add some items, but even with that, it is not enough from what I saw.
The food and service were wonderful, but from the moment we walked in, there was the smell of wet dirty carpet. Know they're doing some outside construction, but the inside smelled horrible. Only when we received our food we're we unable to smell it any longer.
My wife has always liked this restaurant. I went with her for my first visit and ordered grouper over angel hair pasta. It came out very overcooked. The bottom was brown from, I assume as a chef, was forgotten about. Yet It was brought out to me this way. The waiter finally came back to check on us and my wife and I were eating her crab cakes and had decided that was enough for us, so i asked the waiter to just bring it to go. No other option was offered and no other customer service solution to make me want to come back.
July 6th, 2017 - I had a first time meet and date. She picked this place, the Village Tavern, and I was nervous for numerous of reasons relating to the overall date. After a glass of wine, from the selection (Pinot Noir - Meiomi), I was relaxed. The ambiance with the lighting, our booth seating (cushions and table), and the music really put us at ease when it came to getting to know one another. Thank-you, for the experience, it's safe to say, we both will be back soon.
Our dining experience was good. Justin was our waiter and he made sure our food arrived promptly and our glasses remained full. However, we had to ask for silverware after our food arrived and my steak was cooked well done instead of medium. I did not complain because it was still good and the desserts made up for that. I had the carrot cake, my husband had the apple cobbler, and my daughter had the butter cake. I sampled the other two and they were delicious just as mine. Overall, we were pleased and will come again.
The food was very good for the price. I highly recommend the dip dou app if you like pimento and guacamole . We also had shrimp and grits , which were spicy and very tasty, and we had the cowboy burger, which was huge and cooked perfectly. We'll be back when in town in the future .
We go here for special occasions several times a year. It is our steak place of choice. The steaks are always lean, tender and cooked to perfection! Sides and beverages are great, also! Although we have different servers each time, the service is always timely, and not rushed and the servers are excellent! We have never had a negative moment here! Thanks, Guys and Gals!
We were celebrating our 44th Wedding Anniversary. We had an early reservation so we're seated right away. This restaurant has the best prime rib In Birmingham, it just melts in your mouth. Letting our waiter know the occasion we were able to get a special double deck vanilla/chocolate cheese cake. Low lit romantic booth and a great waiter.
We ate here late because we had a late lunch. It was very crowded, so we volunteered to eat at the bar. The bartenders were busy, but attentive. We found a wonderful fume blanc on the wine list, so we shared a bottle. We also shared the ahi tuna appetizer, which was delicious. We also shared part of the BBQ chicken flatbread, which was very flavorful. We love going to Village Tavern when we are traveling if there is one in town. This one was a gem.
We come here all the time and usually have a five-star experience. This time was terrible. Service was incredibly slow. Food was luke-warm and steaks were way over cooked. Very disappointing. We have company in town and kept telling them how great the restaurant is...Village Tavern made liars out of us tonight.
We came for our anniversary, my husband got the ribeye, it way fabulous! I had a mixed green salad & fried oysters.. very tasty!
We had the spring rolls as an appetizer , they are awesome!!! Rebecca W. was our server, we will Definitely be back, she is Super!🎀
