Village Tavern Birmingham Ratings and Reviews
We have eaten here several times and consider it out favorite to celebrate a special occasion. We have NEVER had a bad meal and I have even had the meatloaf before! The servers are all very personable. They are honest in their appraisal of the offerings - even getting a negative on something I was considering - a negative given in a personal manner. Chancellor was our server and he was very attentive. I had grouper and my girlfriend had a spinach salad. She reports that the spinach salad is the best served any where - having gotten it 3 times while visiting. I have tried several different dishes - and liked them all. The menu is such that I would think anyone could find a selection. I am a product of traditional southern cooking - thus the meatloaf! We have been served in the bar as well. The bar is a comfortable room dedicated to civilized conversation. We enjoy this restaurant immensely!
We enjoyed a quiet Sunday evening meal with our family on Easter. Even after one of the busiest of days, our waiter was pleasant and attentive. The cocktails were strong; loved the blackberry LIT. For appetizers, we ordered the warm crab dip and a flatbread. Both were delicious. We each enjoyed our entrees, with the steak tacos getting rave reviews from three family members. The VIllage Tavern was the perfect place to enjoy a holiday family meal that I didn't have to cook!
Service was poor. Drinks were empty most of the meal. Took forever to receive appetizers and salads. My salad was served less than 2 minutes before main course. Food was ok. Steaks were over cooked at a place that boasts "best steaks in Alabama". Fried oysters arrived cold and undercooked.
Easter Sunday Brunch. Our party of five was seated promptly for our reservation. Food and service were quite good. This place does very well for a limited chain and MUCH better than Seasons 52 which is close by. It's one of our "go to" places for friends and family, too.
My husband and I love to go to The Village Tavern for dinner on our date nights. We usually get there at least 30 minutes before our reservation, so that we have time to relax in the bar with a drink first.
On this particular night, it was our anniversary, and we were treated to a delicious desert by the restaurant for us to share. Very nice.
we enjoyed the afternoon in your restaurant. our server was good and attentive. food arrived in a timely manner and was hot and enjoyable. we used the open table reservation and that was great. no waiting. we are members of a healthy you group as well and have eaten with you several times in the past. this time was with our family. hope to see you again soon.
Celebrated our 2nd anniversary at Village Tavern (we had celebrated our 1st there as well) and it was excellent as usual. Hurrah - they are serving much better bread - and it was warm. That has been our only complaint in the past and so happy to see they thought it was important, too.
We made reservations through Open Table and told them it was our anniversary. Oddly, no one from management came by to wish us well or even ask if we were enjoying the food. This is the first time that has happened - usually the manage stops to inquire about the food and service. Perhaps he was out sick.
Our server, Jackelyn, was excellent and knowledgeable about the wines. We had a delightful meal and will certainly be back soon.
Great place for a business meeting, date, or anniversary. Great food with decent specials on wine on Wednesdays. Service was excellent as was the quality. Prices were a little above average but for the quality and service, it was a good value. We will definitely eat here again
Village Tavern Birmingham is a reliable restaurant. Although it's part of a chain, the food is good and the service and ambiance are respectable. It can be crowded and noisy as tables are close together. Service can be hit or miss dependent on the server. Parking is free and easy unless it's crowded and then the valet takes up a lot of the adjacent service lot. This restaurant is much better than the nearby Seasons 52, IMO.
Old friends met for a weekday dinner and had a wonderful time. The food was exceptional, the service was outstanding and the atmosphere was lively. I would recommend Village Tavern to anyone wanting to have a tasty meal with friends or relatives. We plan to go back soon to be treated like someone special again.
