We had dinner here one evening, and sadly we had mixed feelings about the experience. We both started with Calamari, mine deep fried and dried out, while my husbands in a sauce was tasty. My crab cakes weren't much better, while husbands Chicken Picatta was better. A meal of two parts!

We ordered two Greek Salads, one with additional chicken breast. The two came to a total of $27 with feta cheese just finely sprinkled over the top of the leaves, olives and tomatoes. The wine bill was overcharged. This was corrected with no apology.

I visited this restaurant three times for lunch last year, in spite of not being quite happy with the food. The reason was a friend who seldom visits found that it was the only place around that offers special chairs for kids. Every time somebody ordered a Nicoise, and the fish every time was (a) not tuna (b) not seared... More

Every time we come to Carmel, we try to visit Village Corner at least once for lunch or breakfast. This time we were here for the 8th Annual Poodle Day, when over 500 dogs show up at the Crossroads Shopping Center for a little parade and some fun with poodles. Our experiences over the years at Village Corner have been... More

Stumped on this place and popped in for lunch on the sunny patio. A nice setting for a nice lunch - salads for both of us, and both were tasty and well presented without being too expensive. Service was attentive and helpful.

I had been looking at other places for lunch on TripAdvisor. As I was walking around I stumbled on to this place and thought it looked good and I was right. The staff is very friendly, I get the idea a lot of locals eat here. I had a Greek salad with calamari and thoroughly enjoyed it. Very pleasant upscale... More

Second time eating here on trips from Florida. Cute little corner "bistro" with nice variety of menu choices. Outdoor patio has umbrellas to shield you from the sun. Can be loud depending on number of customers. I had Champagne and a Salad Nicoise. Food is very good, but not gourmet, as expected. Cute fun place for lunch.

We visited for dinner, decided to sit inside. We enjoyed excellent service and excellent food. The ahi tuna appetizer was awesome. Plenty of tuna and flavor. For dinner, salmon in beurre blanc sauce, with lobster bisque sauce. Delicious! Ollalieberry pie for dessert...outrageously yummy.

The Village Restaurant has a lovely outdoor dining area serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, but in uncomfortable weather the indoor dining area is nice and intimate. We have eaten lunch there a few times and enjoyed the outdoor area. Have noticed it being crowded for evening diner, but have not eaten there at that time.
