Beer tasting turns into wine tasting.

Stopped by for quick beer sampling (decent variety but a little hop heavy for my tastes) and it turned into a good wine tasting. Only negative is the owners really need to look at the system for preparing flights. The wasted time and movement must be a killer during busy times, and I'd have to... read more

I loved everything about this place! Everything on the menu sounded amazing. Settled on a wood fire pizza and it was amazing! The wine was also amazing. Couldn't settle on one so I choose a flight and all were delicious. The atmosphere was nice and service was great. I will be home my back to try more delicious food and... More

I'd give 5 stars but their sampling process (flights for beer or wine) is very complicated. I like that each beer or wine is labeled, but there has to be a better way to label them then to have to find each type of sample's label and affix it to the glass or under the glass for the beer. I... More

We were on the way out of town, and decided to stop here on a Friday night. The place was filling up nicely, but we got a seat quickly. This place has a great, upscale atmosphere! Our waiter was extremely friendly and patient. First, I had to try a flight of their beers. All four I had were keepers, but... More

I don't like to post negative reviews unless the place totally deserves it... I've been to much worse so this is merely my opinion and you must check it out for yourself. Went here on a whim and a suggestion from someone who is a picky eater and may not know better. My other half had the beef brisket sandwich.... More

This was a wonderful place to go for a ladies night out. The salads were wonderful as well as the chicken Marsala.

This is a stand-alone restaurant with more than enough parking located near the Hobby Lobby on Randall Rd. When you walk in to the front door, you walk past a number of wine casks. This is most definitely set up to be more of a wine tasting or microbrewery for beer, so if that is your thing, Village Vintner may... More

Been here a couple of times. Everything is good but I always feel that the menu is limited and we choose the same 2-3 items. Fish Tacos were very nice. The mac and cheese was just ...just.

First time we came here it was awesome.. Second time we brought friends with kids and it was problematic.. They were really busy too and the food was not as good as the quiet experience we had when it was the two of us.. The food was way better the first time too,
