Out on the deck on a warm autumn evening, the service was excellent, food options and quality were quite good. On the Zagat mention of "Prohibition-era" cocktails though, I'd suggest you pass unless you like your sazerac in a chicklet-ice filled glass. Cocktails aside, it's a great place for a delicious lunch or a weeknight out. Lunchtime: Fantastic service, over the top presentation (especially for lunchtime) and delicious food (burger, caesar salad, pizzetta). Can't wait to go back. Upping star rating to 5.

We've eaten here many times over the years, including at their old upstairs location which was far less pretentious. The food is rooted in classical French cuisine. Overall, they put out great food with acceptable portion sizes. The restaurant is very expensive, however. They have no problem getting 40 dollars for an entrée because of the Woodside factor and limited options in the area. Comparable food for less can be found in downtown Palo Alto, for example. Service is very good. Besides the prices, my other complaints would be that the restaurant is way too dark and as someone else mentioned, they do not offer enough vegetables on most plates. If you live in the area, you are familiar with The Village Pub and probably enjoy it. The people that typically eat here are extremely wealthy and don't mind the prices. Others who are less able to spend 500 on a meal may want to look elsewhere. They have a "pub" menu, but even those prices are very high.

Coming from San Francisco and being accustomed to fine dining, The Village Pub exceeded my expectations on all counts. The upscale classic decor is aesthetically pleasing, with overstuffed chairs and soft lighting throughout. The service is professional and clearly well versed in hospitality, from the hostess, to the servers, to the kitchen staff. The food, while pricey, is perfectly executed and beautifully plated. Glasses were always full, bread was offered on numerous occasions, and finished plates were cleared promptly, all inconspicuously and seamlessly. While they have an extensive cocktail and wine list, wines can be brought in for a $35 corkage fee.

Don't be fooled... while the name is somewhat coarse, it belies a restaurant that exudes class and poise. The food here is homey but superb, and can stand toe-to-toe with the other great restaurants of they Bay Area. The environment in the restaurant is one of elegance, but does so without feeling overbearingly stuffy. The wait staff is very amiable and makes you feel at home. The restaurant can be somewhat difficult to find as it's tucked away down a small road (especially at nighttime), but is certainly well worth the trouble.

Found an old friend. Haven't been here since the facility was upstairs. Ambiance is great; food superb as usual and the help was as expected. Chris , at the bar, a great ambassador. Will be back with friends.

Great food, superb service and excellent drinks. This place is a hidden gem. The bar food is amazing quality if you are in a rush and I can highly recommend the burger. The atmosphere is nice, candlelit and relaxed. Make it a must visit if your in the area.

I went there for Sunday brunch. The ambiance in the restaurant is beautiful. The food was reasonably priced and very good. I gave it 4 stars because several of us thought it was a little heavy on the salt. But most everything was wonderful. Plan to spend a lot of time in your "dining experience."

Upscale dining with a very country-club vibe. The food and service were excellent! Definitely a special-occasion type of place.
