    Both times we've been to Village Bakery the parking has been a nightmare. If you plan to go give yourself plenty of time beforehand to be circling the lot before your reserv. That said, it's very worth the hassle!

    The food is expensive for the quality. It's good but not special. For ex, for brunch, an omelette is $20 a la carte, so you need to order the toast separately. You're mostly paying for the ambiance, particularly if you want to eat outside, since the patio in the back is pleasant and has shaded tables.

    Food and service were good. None at the table were raving about either, so good is a fair assessment in my book. It's a bit crass to add a 20% gratuity to a bill. I can understand that need for parties of eight or more though three people having lunch I can't see the necessity for the policy. I give 20% on the total bill at a restaurant as a matter of course. That is my option and not a choice that need be made by a restaurant, red cap, taxi driver, hotel valet or other service industry professional. Gratuity: Something given voluntarily or beyond obligation for a service.

    I was disappointed in the dinner. I waited at the table for over 15 minutes before anyone asked me if I wanted a drink. I couldn't get the waiter's attention and finally had to go out to the hostess to explain the situation. I ordered a steak that was tough. Overall, if I had not had a good dinner there before, I would never give it another tryl.

    Went for dinner on Mother’s Day. Been many times before. Overall food was very good, but the service was sub par…our server disappeared several times and we ended up spending way too much time. Disappointing.

    I surprised my mom by bringing her here for Mother’s Day from San Francisco. The restaurant was gorgeous, and we were seated fairly quickly. The waiter suggested a lovely sparkling drink for mom, which she really enjoyed, and I loved my latte. We both ordered the eggs Florentine and a side of roasted potatoes. The potatoes came first and were barely warm, so I asked them to be reheated. While they came back much warmer, the egg dishes were also not even lukewarm. I didn’t want to send back a 2nd dish so went ahead and ate. The flavors were good but would have been so much better at the right temperature. The room was NOT busy so I don’t understand why the food wasn’t kept warm until it was brought out. At these prices I expected more attention to detail; not sure I’ll be back.

    Delicious food and drinks. Great service but the tipping situation needs to be clarified. We were told a 20% service fee would be added when we were seated. The bill came and we were in a rush to leave but asked if the tip was included and was told it wasn’t really a tip and couldn’t be called a tip (what that does that mean exactly). So we hastily left another 15% to make sure the waitstaff was covered but it made the meal super overpriced and left us with a bad aftertaste…

    I've eaten here several times and usually ordered fish or salad. This time, I ordered a plate of the three veggie sides: asparagus, carrots, and cauliflower. I expected a sampler but the waiter brought a platter with a full portion of each. It was more food than I needed (I shared with my friend and brought leftovers home) but it was EXCELLENT. Please, Village Bakery, add this combo as an entree. Also had fried olives which were amazing.

    Our server did not mention that %20 is added to the bill. I had a meeting there and got busy talking , didn’t pay attention at the time so I end u paying %40 tip. The Resturant should be honest about that and tell the guest when they bring the bill.

    They automatically put 20% tip on your bill. We asked the waiter how much of that 20% does he get as a tip. He gets 10%. He then has to pay taxes on it. So that ends up to be about 7%. This is ludicrous. This is outrageous. Under the guise of giving more money to the employees for 20% they do not get the 20%. And they have to pay taxes. This again is such a shame that the restaurants are doing to help their employees. This is bull bull.
