Good place to see and be seen, but the food was not good. The duck was so undercooked (two of us ordered it) we almost asked the waiter to take it back to the kitchen and put it in the microwave, as we prefer rubber duckie to raw, bloody duckie. The osso bucco that another member of the party got was good, but that's about it. As much as we love dessert, it wasn't worth finishing. A definite disappointment.

The Village Pub is always and consistently good with the food. The service is prompt, with seating good and a wide variety on the menu. I find the food tasty, a nice place to meet up with friends.

I went there for dinner with a friend this past Tuesday and I loved the entire experience; from the lovely drive from SF through the winding roads of Woodside to the superb service to the great food. The place was filled with young men in

The VIllage Pub is simply excellent. If you want to be confident of a great meal on an important night, this is the place. They make their own charcuterie- a must try. Reservations are a good idea. The one problem I have had is sitting

Read the reviews, and seemed like people either loved it or hated it. My wife & I enjoyed it. We had the crab salad as an appetizer, the daube of beef and monkfish. The beef was excellent. The fish was ok. We capped off the evening

This is a very good restaurant. We love the food and the ambiance. We've eaten there several times and never been disappointed. They renovated a few years ago and now it is very sophisticated.

The Village Pub used to be a unique, romatic destination for the Peninsula. Sadly, not any more. Poor service, ordinary food, high prices. Like a C- San Francisco resturant

This is one of the nicest pubs I've ever been in and the food and wine is outstanding. Last night I had an excellent heirloom tomato salad and a rosemary chicken breast that was cooked perfectly. The ambience is very comfortable. There's a great bar, a fireplace and very attentive staff. This is the place you go to pitch the deal, close the deal, celebrate the deal, etc. It's lousy with VCs which can be good or bad, depending on your POV.

PROS: Great food, wine and service
CONS: Can't afford to go every night

This is a bit difficult to find - although it's on the main drag it's actually on the backside of the building. This is a great place for a special occassion. I went there recently for my birthday and the food was wonderful - great wine,

Editorial from

The Village Pub's bar-lounge---all gleaming mahogany bar, antique oak floors, roaring limestone fireplace and cozy armchairs---offers a pub menu of elegant bistro fare. Think house-made charcuterie or steak frites served with roasted bone…
