Village Tavern is an American Restaurant Chain established in 1984 in North Carolina. It was brought in by The Bistro Group who's also responsible for giving us restaurants like Friday's, Bulgogi Brothers, and Itallanis.

Village Tavern has changed a lot since i first ate here. It is now more "family friendly", a good place for lunch, and even after-hour drinks.

The food was plentiful, and the service was great. A few standouts are the: Spaghetti Al Vongole; Shrimp and Grits; Main Street Platter: (3 Pieces of Fried Chicken, Grilled Porkchops, a Kani Salad Wrap and Marbled potatoes); and High Street Platter (3 Pieces of Grilled Monterey Chicken, Porcetta, Fish Tacos, and Marbled Potatoes). Their extensive menu ensures that definitely something for everyone.

My visit was sponsored by the group as part of their marketing and celebration of the restaurants fifth anniversary.

Village Tavern prides itself in serving classic American cuisine served in a warm, comfortable amd inviting atmosphere. The place does feel posh and cozy at the same time!

We were presented a whole array of mouthwatering American fare. I say mouthwatering because that's exactly what I felt when they laid out all these dishes at our table!

* Spicy Crab Salad
- Heaped with strips of kani on top that perfectly contrasted the crunchy fresh greens and the tangy ranch dressing.

*Spaghetti al Vongole
- This is Manila clams sauteed in garlic, onions, white wine and chili, tossed with al dente spaghetti. The white wine sauce was divine and the pasta stayed absolutely firm to the bite even after all that time it took for us to photograph the dishes. The heat from the chili was a welcome touch as it provided a more distinct flavor to this pasta dish. We loved this so mich we had to ask for one more serving of it!

*Shrimp and Grits
- Presented in a cast-iron skillet, you will see pieces of well-cooked shrimps in a bed of grits or cornmeal mash and cheese. I didn't know cornmeal can be this good and cheesy! You know me, I love everything with cheese!

*Buffalo Mozzarella Burger
- Juicy beef patty is made from wagyu beef, with mozzarella and served with a side of fries. The mozzarella just made this the bomb!

Each of this platters are presented beautifully on a wooden tray, and has generous portions of Village Tavern favorites.

High Street Platter
- For P1,350, you get 3 pieces of porchetta, 3 pieces of Monterey chicken, 2 huge crispy fish tacos, with roasted marble potatoes drenched in yummy gooey cheese sauce. The porchetta was tender, the skin gave a satisfying crispy crackle when you bite into it and the aromatics and herbs used were so on point. I also love the fish tacos because the fish remained flaky and flavorful.

Main Street Platter
- This one is pegged at P1,150 and has large helpings of wrapped kani salad, classic country fried chicken and Texan porkchops. This also comes complete with the roasted marble potatoes in cheese sauce. The porkchops were juciy and satisfying while the chicken, albeit the nagging similarity to a certain fastfood chain, has a crispy crunchy skin and is not overcooked.

Being a tavern, they have an extensive wine selection and copious amounts of liquior and beer. Of course, they also serve non-alcoholic concoctions like what I chose to have - the Green Harvest. This is a luscious mix of pineapple and green apple, made healthier with malunggay. It's a great way to refresh after all these sumptious offerings!

Head on to Village Tavern for when you want to impress a date, treat the team to a big hearty lunch or dinner, or to simply unwind after the end of a busy day. It's a relaxing indulgent place that sure to be a new family favorite.

Village Tavern exemplifies elegance and class. From a date night to a meeting with colleagues or business partners, you would opt to dine at this establishment because of the ambience and location at the Fort. Their menu has a wide variety of western dishes to choose from and top notch wine and cocktail options.

What was served:
Kani Salad
Shrimp & Grits
Mozzarella Burger
Seafood Pasta

Drank:
Green Harvest

Quality of every dish served was exquisite. Not bland or too spicy. I wouldn't mind going back to try another main entrée paired with sangria. My personal favorite is their burger as it has the right amount of grilled, juicy meat, cheese and soft buns. Highly recommending their pasta too as it's cooked simple with fresh seafood. In summary, this establishment has been in the area long and you know won't be going out of the market anytime soon.

Village Tavern is one of the restaurants under the Bistro Group. This a franchise is from the Land of Milk and Honey and they specialize in American Comfort Food.

They have been around for quite sometime and I am a lil ashamed to admit that this is my first VT visit 128566. I need to atone for my ignorance so i will make this review worthwhile.

| Spicy Crab Salad. Fresh veggies tossed in crab fat infused dressing then topped with copious amounts of kani. I love the rich dressing and how it makes the salad not-so-healthy 128514. And i meant it when i said copious.

| Seafood Pasta. This is the best-tasting Vongole I've had in a while (currently ranked at 2nd place - Tratorria Altrove is still king). The past is cooked perfectly. How do i know this? Well, we took our sweet time and the pasta still has the perfect texture. I love the clean flavor, i taste the sea on every spoonful.

| High Street Platter. Porchetta, Fish Tacos, Roasted Chicken and Marble Potatoes. I was surprised when i saw the server carrying a plank of wood filled with food. You know the thing that happens in the movies wherein everything is in slow motion and you defy the laws of quantum physics and see yourself say "Wow" - i think i experienced that 128514. That platter is huge!

The porchetta is the best thing that ever happened. You gotta hand it to ze Italians for bringing this dish into the foodie universe. The pork is roasted to perfection. Each bite is an explosion of flavors in my mouth. The meat is super tender and has the right amount of fat. And oh the skin is super crispy.

| Main Street Platter. Grilled Porkchop, Fried Chicken, Veggies Wrapped in Pita (?) and Marble Potatoes. Yup, another "slowmotiondefyquantumphysicsmode" The porkchop is the shiz! My knife glides through the perfectly charred slab. I am diggin' the flavour as it is a wonderful mixture of sweet x tangy and barbeque-ey notes. And yes, their chef has mad skills in the grill. The fried chicken is equally good too. It has the Southern x Home Style vibe. Crispy x flavorful exterior and moist x juicy on the inside.

| Shrimp and Grits. This is a traditional Southern dish (at least i think it is). I've watched a lot of episodes of Master Chef and I've seen a lot of amateur chefs made this.

Useless Trivia. Grits is from the Old English word "grytt" which means course meal. Grits is made of corn that is ground into a coarse meal and then boiled.

This is the first time I've tried grits and i dunno how it should taste like. The texture is similar to mash. The taste....uhmmm....it is kinda like mash not quite (it ends here, i dunno how to describe it sans comparison)

| Buffalo Mozzarella Burger. I gotta hand it to VT, they know how to make a mean burger. The patty is juicy and oozing with Angus Beef goodness. Pairing it with mozzarella creates a wonderful mixture of flavor as the cheese melts into the burger....making it 10x awesome.

Oh, Village Tavern...you are a force to be reckoned with.

Peace Out!

Team Lunch... very nice. Loved their Panko Crusted Fished on top of their rice pilaf. Nachos was great. The potatoes was just ok. Their meat platter was very nice especially their Crispy Chicken Tacos. Its covered with some sesame seeds. Buy what I really like is the Pasta with Seabass.

Right before my short Christmas vacation and before my birthday, my family and I had dinner here. I've already tried this place twice and both visits were good and I enjoyed everything I ordered so I'm excited to go back here and let my family try this place.

We ordered the following for sharing:

🔷 PLATTER. Can't remember the name of this one anymore but the platter includes the following:
🔹 Texan Ribs: 4/5. Full slab fall of the bone ribs! 128076🏼 It's so tender and tasty! We all liked this one. No need to add more bbq sauce because it's already flavorful on it's own. 128077🏼
🔹 Roasted Chicken: 4/5. This may look sad and boring, but it was actually good. Simple yet so yummy!
🔹 Corn: 2/5. This was too weird. Served cold and topped with white something sauce (which we had a hard time figuring out, cream? cheese??). 128566
🔹 Chicken Tacos: 5/5. Loved! The tortilla was lightly toasted so it was kind of crunchy.

For Bistro card holders, instead of 1800++, you can enjoy this platter for just 1499. Good deal? Yes, super! The platter is huge and can be shared by 4 persons already! 128077🏼

🔷 SPAGHETTI AL VONGOLE PASTA. 4/5. This was good. Lots of clams. Al dente pasta. Slight hint of spiciness. Not too oily. Best enjoyed with some lime/lemon.

🔷 FISH AND CHIPS. 3/5. Usual fish and chips. Nothing special.

And oh, they gave me free ice cream since it's my birthday. Weird lang since they gave and left it to me and they all went to a different group/table and greeted that person happy birthday. Favoritism? 128530128530128530128530

Overall, it was an okay dinner. Not bad. Service was not so good, a bit slow too. Servers were everywhere, they're not that nice and it was so hard getting their attention.

When I first heard of Village Tavern’s Black Pizza, my taste buds shouted and asked me to try it. Coincidentally, Cindy S gave me TBG gift certs so I immediately asked her and Edison A to eat at Village Tavern one Friday night.

We arrived at 9pm and the restaurant was almost full. In fact, we initially seated at the bar and we were just transferred to a bigger table soon after one group called for their bill. I immediately ordered their Black Pizza (575php). This has parmesan, gruyere, mozzarella, Monterey jack cheese, pepperoni, mushrooms, red bell peppers, onion, and of course everybody’s favorite, bacon. The pizza tasted delicious. I was so happy that it didn’t disappoint and somehow met my expectations. It was also very photogenic. And yes, we can use that word for food. Why is the dough black? It must be a squid ink dough pizza. We also ordered Blackened Shrimp (550php) that’s good for sharing. This has generous serving of shrimps in Bayou cream sauce paired with grilled sourdough bread. The sauce went well with the shrimps. It had this salty and creamy finish that screams party in your mouth. Perfect with the sourdough bread. Since it was a Friday night, we partnered our food with Red Sangria (180php per glass). I must say, we made a right choice. Their Sangria has a strong alcohol content based on what I tasted. I’m not complaining though. 128541

The service was pretty fast during this visit. I loved that the servers were very attentive to our needs. The restaurant’s set-up is more of a mixture of modern + tavern-ish. It’s rustic yet elegant. The chandelier is nice!

P.S. Village Tavern has only 1 branch in the Philippines. Yup, it’s in BGC. 128513

Food was OK. But we spent 1,700 for this. So quality does not meet price.

It has been almost a year since my office moved to Fort and till now I hardly walk around after work. For one, I want to go home before it gets dark. Second, it’s expensive to explore here! Third, I hoarded a lot of snacks from my trips. 128547 But I do treat myself a good meal on certain days when I feel I deserve it. And a few weeks back, I invited E to join me for dinner and we went to…

Village Tavern.

I was first to arrive and the server led me to a corner table (near the al fresco part of the restaurant) and I politely asked her to move me to another table as I noticed that the area had a lot of mosquitoes. I refuse to be the mosquitoes’ dinner. She then led me to the table near the bar and it was a lot better. Soon, E arrived.

Since we got there before 7PM, we managed to score some Happy Hour drinks. I ordered Red Sangria (PHP95 before 7PM, PHP180 regular price) while E went for Long Island Iced Tea (PHP95 before 7PM, PHP155 regular price). We also ordered Roasted Bone Marrow (PHP365) and Black Pizza (PHP550).

The Roasted Bone Marrow was sinful and quite weird too. We put a bit of bone marrow goodness on the sourdough and sprinkled a bit of salt and added the greens that went with the dish.

It tasted okay but quite far from the bone marrow dish I had from Cue.

The Black Pizza arrived next and it was a pretty pie. The vibrant colors of the toppings had a nice contrast with the dark dough. The taste was just as good. Village Tavern’s signature black pizza dough topped with ground beef, parmesan, gruyere, mozzarella, pepperoni, mushrooms, bell pepper and onions was wonderful. It wasn’t too salty or overpowering.

The sangria was great too. It was sweet and refreshing. I took my time with it though which was a mistake. It ended up being diluted in water (melted ice). 128557

It was one filling dinner. I’ll definitely be back and try Village Tavern’s salmon dish next time.

Happy 300th review to me! 🍾127881

Have you ever tried a black pizza before?

I have heard and read about Village Tavern's Black Pizza right here in looloo... I found it interesting, but with the many newly opened restaurants, I have never been able to get around trying it...

So when I was told that we will be spending Valentines Day in BGC, I insisted on dinner at Village Tavern. Good time to use my Bistro Card and vouchers as well...

When we got there, I ordered the Cowboy Chips as a starter immediately... Tried this during the looloo food tour and it left an impression!128077 These are thinly sliced potato chips topped with cheese sauce, applewood smoked bacon and pico de gallo. Goes really well with beer and this place has a wide selection of alcohol to choose from.

The Black Pizza is their signature among their many choices. The dough tasted like there were herbs mixed in, subtle but it's there... It has a mix of parmesan, gruyere, and mozarella cheeses with ground beef, pepperoni and mushrooms... It deserves its status as one of their bestsellers... The flavors blended well together and you can taste everything that they put on that pizza... The size is big enough for two people to share... Delish!128076🏻

Finally, we tried their truffle burger, which utilizes Wagyu beef for its' patty... The beef was cooked perfectly and was accentuated by the truffle mayo, cheese and shitake mushrooms piled on top... It comes with a heap of fries on the side... Excellent burger!128156

VT not only churns out great food but they excel in the cocktails that they make as well... We got there before 7pm, so we were able to take advantage of their early bird promo... 20% off their drinks... I got myself a Mango mojito while the bf tried one of Gordon Biersch's brews...

The staff were friendly enough... Food was served fast... The whole place was very clean and pleasant... Glad to have a Bistro Card because the meal was not cheap...128517 Try it sometime, it's good!128515

Disclaimer: This is a late post/review.

I own a Bistro Card and I'm amazed by the many perks I get out of it, ie, on Mondays you get 30% off your total bill and Tuesdays-Sundays you get 20% off your total bill. The card costs P2500 (valid for 1 year), kind of expensive if you're not fond of the Bistro Group restaurants but 10 vouchers worth P250 each also comes with the card! Best part is you can use the voucher together with the card!!!! Not a bad deal if you're like me who wants to eat at good places but still wants to save money 128540

Anyway, I went out with a friend on a Monday and thought of eating somewhere we could use my Bistro Card (kailangan sulitin ang P2500). We went to about 3 Bistro restaurants for early dinner, drinks and dessert. Village Tavern was one of our destinations. We ordered their Warm Butter Cake that comes in 2 sizes, the mini (P250) and the regular (P495). We only got the mini butter cake because we were already full and we only had a little space left in our tummies.

The Warm Butter Cake was very good. I liked the texture of the cake and it wasn't too sweet. The vanilla ice cream and fruits complemented it!!! I even had a free cup of coffee (another of the many bistro card perks) to go with it! Super naenjoy ko talaga. If we weren't so full from dinner, we could've ordered the regular one! I wonder if the other desserts on their menu are also good, I'm actually eyeing on trying the VT Carrot Cake next time.

Overall, I liked my VT experience! The waiters were not as attentive as I expected them to be but I don't want to blame them because the restaurant actually had a different layout. Wala na nga kami binayaran, magrereklamo pa ako. Yes, our bill was P0. 128523 can you just imagine how happy I was after??? 128517 win-win for me in all aspects!!! Good food, free coffee, free dessert 10024

Mexican (Php650.00):
This Village Tavern’s Premium Wagyu Burger has chili con carne, spicy queso (cheese) sauce and crisp onion rings beautifully sits on top of the juicy wagyu patty. The heat slowly builds up but is nothing you can’t handle. Don’t forget to include the cilantro to complete that Mexican experience. 127828
