I couldn't say enough about how wonderful this place is. From the staff to the quality of the food, it was fantastic. I highly recommend the prime rib.

Timing is everything
glad we had reservations at 5:45 pm (was told earlier "oh at that time no problem". We were seated by 6 and then waited for an hour for 2 wedge salads to be delivered. Then 5 entrees came while the sixth person finally said just tell them to forget it. Didn't want to wait for another hour to get dessert so left without any. Food was ok, but noise level and food service made evening stressful!
Great food! Always consistent!!
We recently celebrated Mothers Day at the Village Tavern. Good service, delicious food, and Moms received a pretty white long-stemmed rose. Nice touch!! When we got there, we were immediately seated. Thank you, Open Table!!

We had the lettuce wedge and a filet then the chocolate torte for dessert. It was all delicious!
Nothing outstanding, nothing bad all just ok. I had the Cajin Pasta and my wife had the bacon wrapped scallops.
My wife and I had a "date" night for dinner. We had not been to the Village Tavern in a while. The food, wine, and particularly the service were all first rate. Our server ( Jacqueline(sp.?) ) was very good, and listened! She did not rush us to order, and asked us to put the menus on the edge of the table when we were ready to order. That allowed us to enjoy a few minutes with a drink , and feel like we were not being rushed so the table could be turned over quickly. The food arrived in a few minutes after ordering , and both entrees were outstanding! Thanks.
We are frequent visitors but the last time was disappointing. Service was adequate but slow. Food temperature was warm not hot (as it should have been). We do enjoy the Tavern but after the last time will definitely consider another location first.
We love the Village Tavern in Winston-Salem, so we decided to try this one in Birmingham. We shared the delicious chicken spring rolls as an appetizer, and it was so filling, I could not finish my salmon dinner. We were too full for dessert, and decided that next time, we might just order a couple of appetizers or flatbread.
I was really looking forward to my Caesar salad but the dressing was strange and not a bit like Caesar. I did not like it at all. I would never order it again. I was also looking forward to the French onion soup but the broth was sort of bland and had no hint of sweetness from the onions that when sauteed long enough become sweet. I hate to say this, but I prefer Longhorn's French onion soup much, much more than The Taverns and will not order this again.

The restaurant didn't seem to be busier than usual for a typical Sunday. We were promptly seated but a server never came to take our drink order nor did someone bring us water. After 12 minutes, I overheard a gentleman apologizing to another guest about the service. I decided to approach him after he finished with the other guest and let him know of our situation. He apologized, took our drink order, assigned a server to us, and the rest of our experience was great!
Surprised I Hadn't Gone Sooner
Wow, what a great find. Our server Breanna was wonderfully sweet, competent and energetic. The food was wonderful not just in flavor but in presentation. The Pork Chops were divine and the Chicken Alfredo was so delicious we couldn't stop sharing. Then came the butter cake desert with ice cream and strawberries....AMAZING. But best of all we met the Manager Cedric who was visible throughout the evening taking care of the entire restaurant and all of its customers. What a great find close to home with wonderful food and service. Don't miss out on this one because it is a gem!
Excellent service, accommodating regarding food allergies, delicious food.
Italian red chianti Prime rib Scallops Calamari The food is always exceptional. The waitress was too busy talking to listen to the order. I walked in knowing exactly what we wanted. I'm sure we were DOUBLE CHARGED for the prime rib
The French Onion soup was as good as mine. The blt/pimento sandwich wS enough to feed 2 people. Our waitstaff, the manager both stopped by to see how our evening was going.
Overpriced for mediocre food
We were pretty disappointed in our dining experience at Village Tavern. We felt the price for the food was completely unreasonable considering the steaks and side dishes were just average and COLD. Our steaks were barely warm, my fries were borderline cold as if they had been sitting out for 20 minutes, and our asparagus wasn't warm either. For the food quality and temperature, we really shouldve only paid less than half of what our bill turned out to be.
Great steaks and cocktails
We arrived early for our reservation and went to the bar where it was happy hour. My husband had and old fashioned and I asked for a skinny margarita. The bartender said that they didn't have one on the menu but he would make one for me. It was time consuming for him but he didn't complain and both of our drinks were excellent! We ordered two more and then went to the dining room for dinner, which was equally delicious. The steaks that we each ordered were cooked perfectly to our specifications. We will be back!
A Perfect Night
My friends and I made dinner reservations for a birthday celebration. We had no wait and were seated right away. The appetizers and entrees were delicious. Our waitress recommended wines and everyone loved their selection. Wine is 1/2 price on Wednesdays. Village Tavern is one of my favorite restaurants. The manager Cedric came over and checked our table.
Village Tavern never disappoints!
We took our granddaughter who was leaving to return to TX. We asked what she would like to eat and she said beef, so we booked a table at Village Tavern. We all had a great meal and she was duly impressed.
Servers not adequately trained
Our appetizers were forgotten. The manager did comp us our dessert which was very nice but this did not truly make up for not getting the appetizers. I felt that we were being rushed. And we were not offered bread. On a another recent visit we also had issues with our server. It seems that these are new employees who have not been adequately trained. I hope that this issue is resolved because Village Tavern has been my favorite place to dine in Bham.
A birthday to remember
Celebrated my 75th birthday with cocktails in the bar and dinner in the restaurant. Entire staff from receptionist, bartender, and waiter well trained and made the evening memorable for my wife and myself. Drinks were perfect and food was outstanding.
Business Lunch burger and fries
Had a business lunch and I chose to have the pimento cheese burger with sweet potato fries. I was disappointed in the burger and its only fault may have been it was overcooked. I ordered it medium and once I cut it in half it was a tad short of well done. Did not really have the time to send it back. The sweet potato fries were very crispy and I was a little disappointed in them as well. I guess I expected a WOW factor to order a $11 cheeseburger. Service was great. Next time I will order something else.
Awesome as always
Village Tavern is always great every time we come. Food is delicious and service is great too. We will be back every time we're in the Birmingham area.
Great food and service. French Onion soup was spot on! Prime Rib cooked to perfection! Good wine and dessert choices. If I had any complaints it would be that the booth we were seated at had low seats (or maybe the table was high) but I felt like I should ask for a booster seat lol! Overall great experience.
Great dining in a pleasant setting.
Couln't ask for better food, better presentation, or more comfortable surroundings. We'll be back soon.

Consistently good. Great service. Pleasant atmosphere. Nice menus. Highly recommend.
Attention to Detail
Village Tavern is definitely a higher-end eating establishment both in dining and price. My wife and I had our V-day dinner here and were not disappointed. We decided to go with a few app's and soup/salad along with a shared dessert. We did this so that we could both enjoy a few glasses of wine. Remember, it is expensive to eat here. You would expect bacon wrapped scallops to be good, but the additional sweet and salty teriyaki glaze set it over the top. You would expect fried oysters to be good, but the spicy orange ginger dipping sauce raised the bar. This is the attention to detail that would preclude many other good restaurants in town.

It was lovely the lights were low very romantic. The staff was helpful to everyone and they even passed out roses to the ladies for Valentine's Day. They weren't over priced and the serving size was also great for the cost I will definitely be back
We had a wonderful experience - Valentine's Day dinner. We were pleasantly surprised at the excellent service during a very busy time. Food arrived in a timely manner and we delicious. We will be back.
Great place for a Valentine's day date
Great place for a Valentine's day date
We made our reservations early for Valentine's Day and requested a special table. We waited at least 20 minutes and were told the table was not available. Many customers came in with no reservations and were seated quickly. I realize that customers cannot be pushed out the door, but this was supposed to be a special day at our special table. Very disappointed.

Overall a very good experience. Our server was excellent. Very friendly and didn't miss a beat. Food was delicious. We had the shrimp and grits and huevo ranchero omelette on the brunch menu. Good value. Desserts were made in house and tasted very fresh. Both the Key Lime pie and apple cobbler were excellent. The ambiance was nice. It may need some mild updating in the next few years but overall nice.

Although there were a few problems with the food. The manager was very attentive and adequate everything was handled quickly and the final result was delicious food.
Will ask for a different table next time
I love the village tavern and will keep visiting but next time I will make sure to ask for a both or table on the wall. For our valentine's dinner, which we made reservations for, we were placed at a table that was awkwardly placed in the middle of the floor. We felt like we were in the way. I kept almost bumping into servers. My husband said a server almost dropped their tray on my head at one point. It was just an awkward place to put a table. Very un-romantic for a valentines dinner.

Enjoyed our meal and experience at Village Tavern. Staff was friendly and manager was very involved with the patrons, regularly checking to make sure everything was good.
We had a table for 6 to entertain an out of town guest. The noise level was OK for conversation.
