Village Tavern Birmingham Ratings and Reviews

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.

Love being greeted so warmly upon entering the front door of Village Tavern! We were seated promptly and someone took our beverage order immediately. Our party wanted to talk a while and catch up on our lives and our server was attentive but certainly not pushy. We asked some questions about menu items and got very good advice. Finished off the meal with the Warm Butter Cake that we had heard so much about and it was one of the most amazing desserts I have ever tasted!

We went to celebrate my grandmother's birthday, I however wish that we hadn't. The service was slow, the whole building was hot like there was no AC, and the food was sub-par. We even had to ask for ice for the waters because they didn't have any. The wait staff made it seem like an inconvenience to ask for ketchup to go with French fries. I will never go back to the restaurant, it was truly that disappointing.

Immediate seating, though we were 45 minutes early for our reservation. Drinks came out within 5 minutes. Never an issue with drinks staying full. Quesidilla and Nacho appetizers were average, but again, came out quickly. Nachos ran out of chips and the waitress readily brought out more for us to finish off the toppings.
Trout is covered in some type of orange/ginger/soy marmalade the was just "to die" for! Chicken parmessan and fettucinni dishes were so large, it was impossible for them to be finished. Will keep coming back!

We were thankful we had reservations for Fathers Day. The restaurant was busy with diners and people waiting to get a table.
Our service was great and our food was delicious! Thank you both, Bethany and Leigh, for helping us enjoy our meal.

The menu is great for families and groups with varying tastes. Most of the food was great although accuracy on meat temp could be a little better - my burger was a little over cooked and another person's prime rib was under cooked. Our server was attentive enough but not particularly friendly and the frown never left his face so that was a bit of a downer. Since our last trip to Village Tavern had been exceptional, I had expectations that just weren't met. To be fair, compared to similar restaurants, I would still recommend Village Tavern over many of them.
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!
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.
