The place looked great, it seemed to have a buzz all afternoon. Service was friendly, but the menu was "same old, same old" and the kitchen seemed to have some difficulty in keeping up with all the orders, so it took a lot of time - admittedly, both the bar and the outside patio were very full at that time,...

Looking for a place to eat gluten-free on the road, I was initially excited to stumble upon The Village Idiot. By the time we walked out the door, I was hugely disappointed. We waited at least 45 minutes for food, which the waitress didn't warn us about. I heard her tell another table their pizza would take that long, but... More

It was busy, but I found the service slow overall, from getting drinks, placing order and getting the bill. My burger was wrong when it came out and was quickly corrected. My wife said here food was just 'ok'. Good mix of locals and tourists and has a nice vibe. I would probably give them another chance, if I was... More

Stopped at The Village Idiot for lunch based on recommendations from Trip Advisor and a friend. We were not disappointed. Sharing a small ( piece), 3 topping pizza was very filling and tasty!!

Absolutely loved it! Was recommended by a local so we gave it a shot. Decent menu with quite a few options (I am lactose intolerant) and I found a few options I liked/could eat which doesn't normally happen! The service was great as well, all the staff were very kind. Food was fast and very tasty!

Staff were friendly and helpful. Menu covered the pub basics. We tried the local micro brewery beer and it was great. Our food orders took quite a while but it was ok and a chance to enjoy the beer and relax. It was extremely busy which is an indication of how popular it is. Good choice for a meal.

We had this restaurant recommended to us and it was totally worth it - we ate there twice in our two days in town! Yummy food and drink, friendly service and such a cool, funky set up! Would love to hit it up during the ski season :)

What a great find this place was! The service was great and the food was delicious. It offered a vast menu but the pizza was amazing. I don't know what their secret is, but I stopped in again a few days later on my way through town specifically so I could have another pizza.

This is such a cool place! From the moment we walked in everyone was friendly. The service was very welcoming and the food was really great! During our wait we occupied ourselves looking at the decor but my husband was shocked they had Calgary flames memorabilia on the wall. Oh well not everyone loves the Canucks. If you are in... More

Natural food, many choices, great service and fair prices: this restaurant conquered my family's heart. We went twice as the ambiance is great and we ate really good healthy non-greesy food. Try not to miss this place.
