It's not our first time to try Village Tavern, since husband has a Bistro Group Premiere Card, but we also do not visit as often since they only have one location - BGC Central. We frequent Krazy Garlik, Friday's, Bulgogi Brothers and Fish & Co. because they have a couple of branches that are readily accessible and are located in malls. But the charm of Village Tavern is so different altogether drawing us back each time there is something special to celebrate about.
In Village Tavern, warm lighting, elegant interiors and great customer service will be with you as you dine. They have an extensive menu and there is so much good stuff to order that we always end up asking our server to give us a few more minutes to decide. They've got an array of appetizers, salad selection, pasta dishes, pizza, burgers, sandwiches, ribs, steak, fish, meat and more meat! And of course, dessert! While waiting for our orders, complimentary bread was served - warm and seems like fresh out of the oven, with herbed olive oil as the dip. My eldest daughter likes this kind of stuff so much that she can eat just this and be done - no further order. Good thing they were generous enough to feed my daughter with more bread! Hah!
We started the night with some Nachos - Tavern Nachos. We only got the regular size but boy it was loaded! You'll get fried corn chips topped with ground beef (which should have been spicy but we were able to ask them to make it kid friendly), black beans shredded lettuce, tomatoes, black olives, salsa, Monterey Jack Cheese and Cheddar Cheese. There were supposed to be Jalapeño slices too but we also requested them to be removed. There was so much topping that each piece of corn chip won't go to your mouth naked.

We were in the restaurant for a good 3 hours and I must commend the patience of our server with all the requests that we made. Dining with a 5 year old and a 7 month old was not easy. Utensils falling here and there, the need for a lot of table napkins, hot water request, etc, etc. It was so easy to catch the attention of their staff too given that the house was full that night. It's always a good experience in Village Tavern. Definitely one of our top restaurants.
5 out of 5 Stars for Village Tavern!
