Village Tavern Pembroke Pines
Grouper Hemingway is outstanding.
Excellent location in restaurant and 5 star service!
Drinks were good. Food was good too. Our waitress was great. Good dinner with good company.
Village Tavern is an amazing dining experience. It like being home for the holidays and grandma is cooking all her favorite dishes. I’ve been through almost the entire menu and I find everything to be beyond excellent! From the moment I come through the front door, Nicole,an awesome young lady greets me with a warm smile. Reservations are always delivered on time. Mike, the GM, and a very busy man always finds time to come around to continue our ongoing dialogue. It’s like family every time. And it’s not just for me, Mike and his crew treat all the guests this way. Sara, our professional server who we’ve had before, is excellent. Right on point every time. The food is outstanding. The service is outstanding. And the welcoming spirit makes for a fun and enjoyable treat. VT has earned the right to be our favorite restaurant. 15 on a scale of 10. Off the charts excellent! We’ll be there again next week. Thanks Mike, Nicole, Sara and the entire team
Thanks Bob!! Great to see you and Millie on your date night. Have a great weekend and we'll see you next week! Mike
Great place to dine food and service is great.
We had a great time! All was perfect! The waiter was the best of best Juan.
Enjoyed a birthday get together with 5 ladies.
Thank you Barbara!!
Haven't had a bad thing yet...love this place, love to celebrate here
And we love when you celebrate here too! Thank you
Weekly brunch with the girls... always delicious!
Hadn't been in a long time, it was late and they were still open, so we sat in bar area. Food and service were great. Would go back.
It was our first time for my husband and myself. The service and food were overall great. Definitely will be coming back.
I'm glad you and Hubby had a great time, we hope to see you again very soon, Mike
Top Shelf happy hour was still open when we arrived. Had 2 delicious Mojitos. Appetizer Brie cheese and fruit with crusty French bread. My husband had fish and chips. I had filet mignon tacos. All excellent. The server was late getting our drink orders, others filled in for him. All in all a pleasurable experience.
After bringing VIP guests to Village Tavern last week, my guests couldn’t stop talking about the terrific experience we had. They even asked us to say hello to Mike, Natalie, Patrick Mike quality tastes everything until it’s perfect. When Mike came by our table “Don’t you just love the sauce?” He also said that to me when I ordered the Brussel Sprouts for the 1st time. And the Grouper Hemmingway, and the bacon wrapped scallops, and the Shrimp Rossoto, etc. Everything is soooo delicious and everyone is sooo great! Thanks to Mike, and his team of Natalie, Patrick and our new server Sabrina. Amazing and can’t wait to go back next week.
Thanks Bob!! See you next time. Always a pleasure to see you and Millie Mike
Always on point, fantastic food, drinks and service!!! Highly recommend
The food was nothing memorable and the service wasn't great. Literally 5 seconds after being seated, the waitress came over and asked if we had dined there before (which we stated "no") then proceeded to ask if we were ready to order. She came back 2 more times within a matter of 5 minutes asking if we knew what we wanted. Have never felt so pressured to order before. The waitress was then MIA until she came over to clear our entree plates and give us the check. She was short and seemed like she did not want to be there. The highlights of the dinner were the cocktails, even though they were rung up at the incorrect price. Maybe they were having an off night, but considering the subpar service and standard food, I'd probably pass on going back.
Hi Stephanie, I'm so sorry that you didn't have a great experience here. I'd love to get some more details if you wouldn't mind reaching out to me at 954-874-1001. We strive to make sure that every guest has a 5 star experience and I'd like to make it up to you. I look forward to hearing from you! Thanks for the feedback, Mike
Village Tavern is a great restaurant. I’ve eaten there many times and have always been pleased with my meal. It’s a great place to have a party too.
This is the third time we ask for a filet mignon medium and we get rare or medium rare. This last time when they bring back the steak was well done. Do not order any steak; it seams that they don't know how to cook on the grill
Great food and service as always.
Service was really lacking. Our app took so long the waitress came and apologized twice. Then my main course came out wrong. Then our bill came out wrong.
Hi Alisa- I'm very sorry about the confusion and lack of service. I'd like to hear more about it if you wouldn't mind giving me a call at the restaurant- 954-874-1001 I hope to hear from you soon, Mike
We a had another phenomenal experience. This was another cant miss opportunity with VIP guests from out of town. Their expectations were high as I had been telling them for a month that I would be taking them to the best restaurant they’ve ever dined in. They live in Virginia and have been to all the best restaurants there, Capital Grill, etc. From the moment we walked in, my entourage knew it was going to be special. I believe the key to VT’s success is General Manager/Owner, Mike. He’s an A+ type personality and hires only A+ type people, top to bottom. It starts at the front door with Natalie. A young professional bursting with enthusiasm and a welcoming smile. We got seated in our favorite area at our favorite table. In a blink, Mike visited our table to say hello, catch up with us, and meet my new guests. He makes us feel special and at home. We had Nikki as our server. She is beyond great. Extremely knowledgeable about the menu and specials and must have been reading our minds. Whenever we thought of something to ask her, she appeared. A great great server.
We started with the Prince Edward Island mussels in VT’ signature pesto sauce. My guest, an Army Ranger with 2tours in Iraq, even told Mike he should bottle it and sell it. It’s that delicious. The mussels were the best ever. Scrumptious.
I wanted to try something new on the menu and decided on the Grouper Hemingway in pasta. OMG. Absolutely DELICIOUS. Melt in your mouth good. The Army Ranger has the Entree Ahi Tuna Salad. Sparks flew as he gobbled it down. Stated it was the best Ahi he’s ever had. His girlfriend had the Thai salad. She couldn’t stop raving about it, couldn’t finish it because it’s huge and we took the remainder home. My lady had her favorite, Shrimp Rissoto. It’s another fantastic dish on a fantastic menu. Best in South Florida. That dish is huge too so we took the remainder home. I claim it for lunch the following day and it is beyond delicious.
We topped off our fabulous meal with th
Bob- You've outdone yourself as well...Thanks as always for the kind words and we're already looking forward to your next visit!! Mike
Great attentive service. Food delish!!
Thank You!! Mike
My family and I come here often and have never had a bad experience. The food Is good and service excellent. Love the drink specials and the appetizer bacon wrapped scallops is delicious
Thank You Mechi! Mike
Well this dinner wasnt at all what we expected. First I had to call the restaurant after we dined so they could check me into my reservation to leave this review. Our server Kyle was just not on his A game. Brought is the wrong cocktail and didnt even offer to get us the correct one, never offered me a refill of my iced tea. Food was even worse. Cajun seafood pasta was just above room temperature and nearly raw scallops. Zucchini and spaghetti squash is flavorless good thing I ordered a piece of salmon if I wouldn't have I would have had anything to eat. To many other options in the area to have bad service and subpar expensive food.
This is One of our favorite restaurants in the shops! Food is always on point!!!
We were a party of 4 adults and 2 children. Because I had made a reservation online, we were seated right away. The wait staff was very attentive and service was excellent. We waited only a few minutes before the appetizers arrived and soon after our entrés arrived and were all very good. The children ordered little pizzas. All in all I think good but a little too pricey because the tab was close to $200.
Good Morning MoninaK, Thanks for the feedback! I'd be happy to review your check with you to see if there were any errors. You can call me at 954-874-1001 so we can chat if you'd like. I'm glad that you and your family had a nice time though. Mike
As always I love their Capresse salad. In my opinion it is one of the best that I have tried. The service was really good too!!!
Sunday brunch was delicious as always. Nicole was an excellent server! 5 Stars for VT!!!
Lettuce in Greek salad was brown, slimy, and wilted. Couldn’t eat it and waiter seemed to be in a hurry to serve and get us out. I love This place, but this time was just....
Hi Margie- I'm so sorry about the salad- I'd love to make it up to you. Next time your in, please introduce yourself so I can make it right. Thanks for the feedback! Mike
I loved the food. Also, I will be returning. Laura was great.
Good atmosphere for a business dinner or time with friends.
Food was great as was the service. Flank steak was cooked perfectly and the braised beef rib was so soft it could be eaten with a fork. Waitress was very attentive with outgoing personality.
Some of the food came out under-cooked despite an extended wait. Disappointing, but maybe just an off night. Otherwise, the food and service are great.
We went to the Village Tavern for Father’s Day dinner and it was great. There was six of us there so everyone got something different. Everyone really enjoyed their food and our server Nikki was very attentive and super nice. The only thing I would recommend would be making reservations as this place does tend to fill up fast and there was a lot of people waiting for tables. Thankfully we had made reservations😁.
Thank you Justin! Glad you had a great Father's Day dinner. Nikki is terrific!! Mike
Our family loves having brunch here. We always request Kyle who gives us outstanding service every time. We’ve done dinner here as well. Chefs, servers and food at this restaurant are A+!!! Village Tavern Pines never disappoints!
Thank you Maggy for the kind words...Kyle is fantastic and definitely a Guest fav. Thanks again and we hope to see you again soon. Mike
Food is very good and the service is excellent very friendly and helpful.
Our first time here. The food was AMAZING!!! I had chicken parm with a different sauce (pink sauce) my husband has the grouper and we were both very satisfied! We will definitely be going again.
Great as always
Where do you take your son for dinner when he flys in for Father’s Day and you want to impress him with a “can’t miss” experience of great food and great service? Yes, Village Tavern hands down! This restaurant is simply the very best managed restaurant in South Florida. Mike is on top of everything, a non stop ball of positive energy. From the Kitchen, to the servers, to the bar, interaction with a full house. Just amazing to watch him perform. Mike’s energy translates to servers bending over backwards. The scratch kitchen putting out fantastic, delicious, mouth watering food. Tonight we order Asian tuna sashimi. Top quality, melt in your mouth tuna. Next, Prince Edward Island mussels in the best sauce I’ve ever had. Just succulent. It’s also one of the kitchens that serves a spaghetti squash which I like with the salmon. Everything was perfect. Mike is the key that makes everything else work at a high level. VT has earned the right to be our FAVORITE. Thanks to everyone. We will be seeing you again soon.
Bob! Your review gets a 5-Star review!! Always a pleasure to see you and great to meet your Son. Thankyou again for the kind words. Looking forward to your next visit! Mike
Good food overall. A bit noisy for me but nice.
