    The restaurant was too warm to fully enjoy our meal. The salmon was very good. My husband and daughter order Thai wraps and Stir fry. Appearance of each dish was different but taste the same.

    Food was cold, prices have increased and quality has decreased. Third time I've tried it yet again only to be disappointed yet again. Used to be a great place, not so much anymore.

    Entrees were great, but cajun fries are nothing to write home about, especially for the $2 upcharge. Only dessert available was vanilla ice cream so that was kind of a bummer. It felt like the AC was not on- we were all sweating and sticking to the booth, and there was an awful perpetual sqeauling noise the entire time we were there (sounded like a squeaky wheel or like a hoard of mice was in the ceiling). Our server only refilled our water when asked, and didn't come to ask if we were ready for the check for entirely too long after we had finished eating.

    Pleasant evening, so we dined outside. I met 2 other guys from work for dinner. It was a Thursday evening. Overall, very good experience. The only minor quibble might be that the paved walkway outside does not have a clean transition to the next restaurant area. Some folk walked on the edge of the paved area some tried to squeeze through a narrow area. Neither was ideal, the edge of the paved area had some in progress construction under way with covered holes in the walkway, those that tried to squeeze through the narrow opening were at least slightly disruptive to those dining. Likely this issue will go away when the construction completes.

    The food took forever and no one enjoyed their meal. The chicken was tough and over done. The salmon dish was not described well on the menu as I expected to get a salmon filet and instead got shred salmon that was mainly cheese. Overall, terrible and won't visit this place again! Lastly, they did not indicate we could not order off the menu and when we got there had very limited "brunch" items to pick from, all of which were horrible.

    Made reservations for Easter Sunday. Disappointed with the brunch food. Was dry, flavorless, lacked seasoning. Needed to ask for several condiments. Would have preferred to order off the complete menu. But, we’ll try again?

    Village Grill once was an excellent restaurant but it's gone totally to crap! They can't even make a decent burger; and they burnt the Coconut Shrimp appetizer. Frankly, they shouldn't even be open for business. The only thing good about the meal was my Cosmopolitan and the waitress! Will never go back!!

    Never been great food but they usually have decent beer list. The food and service was so bad this visit though I have sworn off this place. The chicken added to our salads was so minuscule it was pathetic. The place was empty but the service was still terrible.

    I’ve honestly never left a poor review of a restaurant before but was really disappointed by Laf Village Grill. 4 salads took over an hour and a half to come out and our waitress did not check on us once for drink refills or to see if we needed anything/our food was okay. I ordered $9 worth of salmon to top my salad and it was about the size of 3 of my fingers put together.

    Terrible meal. Took over 45 minutes just to get a glass of water. Service was beyond slow, salad portion came out as a small measly bowl of lettuce. Pricey and hardly worth it.

    Really disappointed. Very short staffed but to be expected post Covid, however, there was a young male employee socializing with his (loud) group of friends instead of helping our overworked hostess/waitress. Food was very lackluster. Had a burger and fries. Was not asked how I wanted my burger cooked and assumed (wrong) it would come out well since not asked. It was barely medium rare which is way too underdone for my liking. No seasoning on burger. Fries were old, sitting, no seasoning and EXTREMELY greasy. My friends pulled pork had no sauce and the same greasy fries. Flash forward 3 days later and my stomach is still off due to the heavy heavy amounts of grease. Super disappointment and feel the food is barely one step above fast food and a step below a chain. Will not be back nor recommend. Honestly shocked it was so busy and there was even a wait when we left!

    We use to come here all the time!! We loved the food and the service was always great however the last 3 times it’s been terrible and unfortunately we are done trying to support them. They have a great location and use to do a great job but WOW!! Have things changed. We didn’t want to Keep making our server run so we finally just quit asking for things but the side salad came up dressed with no dressing, the chicken and waffles came with my syrup, it took 30 minutes to get our drink from the bar while other tables around us had 2 drinks served to our 1 finally….the kids chicken fingers were cooked so long they could barely chew them…. Bad , bad experience and we won’t be back

    The homemade potato chips were old and over done. The Thai lettuce wraps were not Thai, they were chicken chunks with cabbage in an Asian flavor marinade. Poor substitute. My date’s chicken cordon bleu sandwich was marginal. Basically bar food that was not that good. And the bill was over fifty for two people. With no alcohol. Will not be back.

    We had reservations. We got seated and 35 minutes later no one had even checked on us or stopped by. We made eye contact with a few and kept thinking they would come. We left and won’t be going back. We ended up at a restaurant next door. They had amazing food and service! I’m amazed this place is still in business.

    The food was just terrible! Can’t believe how this place has gone downhill! Less than a year ago the food was great! The French onion soup was a weak, flavorless broth with a big blob of cheese, the waffle was stale, and my husband’s egg and mushroom skillet was over cooked and very dry. Not the birthday brunch we’d expected.

    The food was great, however the service was poor. We had long waits to take our orders, bring beverages, ask for checks. Eventually after being there for much too long - waiting to pay, we walked inside to the hostess station to close out our bill. My assumption had been that they were understaffed, like many restaurants in the area…. But alas we saw at least 4 employees kind of wandering around and chatting, in a mostly empty restaurant.
