Village Tavern Birmingham Ratings and Reviews
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.
Delicious as always! Cold beer, crab dip appetizer was delicious, steak cooked to pure perfection, salad and loaded baked potato always good. We eat here every year for our anniversary and visit a few other times throughout the year. It is one of our favorites.
Was able to be seated upon arrival, very organized, and wonderful waitress and staff. Very calm and unique place to eat and all of my guests and I were able to unwind and relax without having to yell. The seating arrangement was nice, which allowed everyone to be able to stretch out without the concerns of bumping into one another or another table. Overall, an amazing experience, will do it again.
Seated quickly, even though we were 15 minutes early for our reservation. Crab dip was pretty good, chicken pasta was good but the trout was delicious. Cocktails were a little pricey for their size but were very good. They handed out a single rose to each lady, which was a nice touch on Valentine's. Only complaint was that we were placed at a table with other patrons, even though there were a few tables for 2 available. This made for a somewhat awkward Valentine's dinner and will affect my decision on choosing other restaurants for special date nights. I will be back for other family dinners though.
Although it was a special day, we were seated in no time no service was quick. Our waiter, Brett was great...very knowledgeable about the menu and never let our glasses get low. Sonya came around and gave all the ladies a rose...nice touch. We will definitely be back!
We arrived at 4:30 which was the time of our reservations for Valentine's. There was a lot of chaos that early. They said it was because of a shift change. Finally, we were seated and waited 20 minutes for a waitress to show up. We ordered and when our food came the salad was good but the filet minions were ordered medium well for both of us. Our steaks were medium rare with blood running out. We complained and they took them back to the kitchen. When we got them back they were burned on the outside but done on the inside. They were not very good.
We have eaten here many times before and have had a good experience but were disappointed tonight. First of all we have an 18 month old and they only had 2 high chairs both of which were broken. The pimento cheese fondue app was good but then it took a long time to get our food. And some of the good was lukewarm when it came out. They also were out of baked potatoes but we didn't know until my wife had already ordered a steak. I hope it was just an off night but was disappointing for sure.
Waiter had either too much to do or not doing her job well. Took forever to get order in and food back. This reminded me of a glorified Olive garden and we were expecting more of a upscale experience. Could be our expectations were unrealistic. The one thing that bothered me even more, we made a 7 pm reservation on open table, Still took them 25 minutes to seat us.
Food was amazing. Cocktails were incredibly reasonably priced and delicious. Service started off great and then our server just basically quit after we ordered food. Didn't bring our food to the table, didn't check to see if it was right (which sucked because my date's steak was a little undercooked for her liking), didn't ever bring us refills, finally the manager came by and helped and we little never saw our server at our table again. The manager was fuming mad but hid it well behind a very kind smile and excellent recovery.
