The Village Cafe in Santanna Row has very nice atmosphere. The seating outdoors was very pleasant. The food was very good and the portions seemed huge. The service was fast and efficient. I would go back.

I first tried this restaurant last summer, and both the food and the service were excellent. However, a second trip in the fall was disappointing. The food was tasteless, especially the fingerling potatoes. The service was okay, until a

Kids dumped off with the grandparents, wanted a nice dinner date with the wife. Ended up here. Should have turned around when the reservations we made were not in the computer, he rudely seated us anyway. Service was prompt. Kept

I agree with Rita's review -- Village Cafe is a really nice place for brunch or lunch on the weekend. Good indoor and outdoor seating and very nice service. The brunch menu has a lot of good options to choose from.

I've been to this place maybe 5-6 times. It's good when you want a nice meal at a reasonable price. It's not *the* best food, or *the* best service, but I don't expect that from any restaurant with entrees less than $20 or so. The

My party was, at first, happy to learn that we could get seated right away at 7:30pm on a Saturday night considering the fact that the other Santana Row restaurants we had tried to eat at had lengthy wait times. We should've realized that

Pros: Attractive looking restaurant

My kids and I had Sunday brunch at the Village Cafe in Santana Row (across from Yankee Pier). We all enjoyed our delicious and fluffy omelettes which looked like they were made from seven eggs rather than two, as my son said. The service was also very attentive. I also had coffee and desserts here one evening with my friends and the desserts were wonderful. I intend to go back and try other menu selections.

I have never had such a bad experience! The staff is RUDE and the management is worse! Trying to get someone to wait on you is a real challenge and the food is marginal at best.
