    Love village bakery. Our two biggest complaints remain same since we been coming for years. 1. Your giant cinnamon role is not giant. Either make it more giant or don’t call it giant. 😀2. Charging for Arnold Palmer free refills feels a bit unnecessary. Especially when iced tea refills are free. $6 for 1/2 cup of lemonade? 😢

    I enjoyed a rare weekday girls luncheon at Village Bakery and Cafe and it was a treat! We sat in the back patio on a warm day; a lovely setting and away from the bustle in front. The staff was quick to turn on the fans which made the air pleasant. Our waitstaff was attentive and patient. The food was good. The only "issue" was a bit of confusion my girlfriends had finding the right entrance with the bakery next door and the busy-ness in front making the signs harder to find.

    I know restaurant prices have gone up everywhere, but Village Bakery is overpriced for what you get. The little gems salad for $21 is a joke and $16 for a bowl of soup is ridiculous. The other irritating thing is for a table of 3 people, they still add the forced tip of 20%. Do you remember when 20% was only given for exceptional service? Don't force me to pay 20% on overpriced food for average service on a super simple order.

    Love, love, love this restaurant. We dine here all the time and it is our favorite neighbor hangout. This was a lunch time gathering, we all had a variety of delicious salads that were very filling. Diego served us and he was excellent and we enjoyed speaking with Uri and Lauren.

    Everything was fine except for the noise level! We sat outside, however, the music was too loud—especially with so many other diners at adjacent tables. The stereo system needs to monitored more closely.

    We love this resturant and go often. Last night was terrible. service people were clearly inexperienced from the greeter to the waiters. Incompetent in entering order in system and not clear what was even on menu. Didn’t come back to check on us, forgot who ordered what and was 20 minutes late with check. When he brought bill I asked if an item that hadn’t been served (mentioned to him earlier that it was now too late as we were finishing) had been removed, he said yes. I looked at bill and it was still included. My favorite avacado toast was burned, the eggplant dish was missing elements, and the 9grain bread was served cold (usually warm). Rare Terrible night.

    Their menu is grossly overpriced- just like all other eating establishments. It’s the times we live in and it’s hard to deal with. $32.00 for a brunch that was only an egg sandwich and a Virgin Bloody Mary …a little too steep! Other than that everything was pleasant and acceptable!

    This is one of my favorite restaurants but last night's meal was mostly a disaster. After being seated, the waiter pressured us to order our food before asking for or letting us select a bottle of wine so we did. As part of my order, I asked for French fries to go with my fried chicken but the fries arrived with our appetizers. In addition, the main courses also arrived just as we began to eat our appetizers. The wine followed. We asked that the main courses be returned to kitchen which they did but the waiter returned at least two more times to ask if we had finished our appetizers while we were clearly eating. When the main courses did re-appear, the fried chick was dried out and was the side dish that the waiter had suggested. I ultimately left more than one-half of my meal and even mentioned to him that both entrees were dried out. He immediately asked for a dessert order but we initially responded with "no". Less than five minutes later, we changed our minds but he said the kitchen was closed. He quickly delivered the check and stood at the table asking for payment. I asked if he wanted an immediate payment so he could go home and he said "yes". We re-corked the bottle of wine we didn't have time to finish and sadly left.

    Great outdoor space that whisks you away from a Woodside parking lot and puts you in St. Tropez. I have one major gripe though: the music (70s pop/rock) really lowers the levels of sophistication and spoils the ambience of what could be a high-end experience. Feels cheaper and less special.

    Unfortunately, Village Bakery’s quality has gone downhill. If you go on the weekend with a reservation, be prepared to not only wait for your table, but also to receive your food 1+ hour after ordering (cold) and sub par service. This is the 3rd time in a row where we’ve had a similar experience, so it’s been disappointing.

    The parking situation is absolutely horrible- the parking situation was challenging even before the park lets took over a number of spaces. We ended up parking down the street near the Firehouse restaurant - otherwise we would have gone elsewhere- very stressful. The atmosphere in the back patio was very nice and the service was great as well as the food. Unfortunately, we were seated next to a large party of very loud patrons which made our own conversation very difficult.Hosts and hostesses might consider this when there other choices available and there were. As long as the parking situation stays like it is, I won’t be back to this very nice restaurant.

    Usually a stellar restaurant, it fell short yesterday. Burger was not cooked medium rare as requested. Mixup on the part of the server or kitchen on fried chicken vs. roasted when added to a salad. Not a personable waiter.

    Love the restaurant, go often, always great service. Usually order the fish dish, Durade if they have it and always great, cooked perfectly. This last time the portion was very small, I mean a third less, so not a great value.
