    Great ambiance! Been to this fun spot before a few times but a while ago. We enjoyed our delicious meal except were brought one side and dessert that we did not order. Since we were celebrating a special occasion I hoped it was complimentary. Oops!!

    Four friends gathering to toast life! Little gem salad does not work with stinky Gorgonzola. Would’ve been MUCH better with goat cheese or light crumble. Dressing too thick and creamy. A nice champagne vinaigrette would’ve been better dressing. Peaches and nuts were delicious. Lettuces not chilled enough. Fried chicken: terrible and uninspired. Forgot to bring coleslaw. Had to ask for it. Two ugly pieces of chicken on a plate. Lame. Skin had been ripped off of outer layer of chicken so underneath was too fried and dry. Pepper steak and brick chicken were delicious and cooked to perfection. Yummy white beans under chicken. Pizza of corn and bacon was just alright. Not inspired. Burrata and Arugula salad dressing was way too sweet and way too much dressing on it. Icky. Clumpy. Wait staff just fine. Dropped food down without seeing we all needed utensils, etc. Had to wait to eat until utensils arrived for main course. Long wait to order (although we kept putting him off to continue conversation so not entirely his fault). The ambience was quite nice.

    we have LOVED the restaurant over the past 6-10 visits--- but have you changed the kitchen? the food quality is quite bad ---- terrible gray horrrible hamburger, absurd garnishes for the salmon... quite a big and obvious drop in food --- there must be a big problem in the kitchen these days. and the music on the patio so loud ---like a stadium--- so much here does not make sense all of a sudden! did you lose your manager? until things get fixed... people should stay away. so sorry.

    The Village Bakery has become apart of our Girlfriend Spa Day scheduled quarterly! They tempt us with seasonal dishes with veggies and fruits, salads and mains. I always try one of the cocktail specials and we split one of the desserts. Makes for a delightful afternoon each time!

    Such a great spot, but be prepared for a lot of parking noise on the weekends. Between the Harleys and the sports cars, the sound can overwhelm the experience. The menu is fantastic. Lots of healthy options (could do more for vegans). Great bar. Wonderful service. Reserve early. Expect a wait if you don't have a reservation.

    Nice decor. We were seated reasonably quickly for a busy Saturday brunch service. Also, nice things for the kids (crayons, coloring sheet, mad libs on the menu). Those were the highlights. We ordered juice and coffee, the coffee never appeared. We ordered a cinnamon bun and the pancakes for the children, both of which were significantly underbaked/some areas of raw dough. The remaining food was good - the savory items. The final thing - which was not really the restaurant's fault - was that a very large, very noisy, very inconsiderate party was seated in our area. The members of this party immediately closed the curtains (which had been letting in some nice natural light), moved the tables around and were staring at us waiting to do the same with our table, and all but shouting at each other in conversation across multiple tables. Again, restaurants can't control the behaviors of others, but they could have attempted to limit the impact this had on other diners. I was excited to dine here, but won't be making an effort to return.

    This place is quite lovely. The restaurant is quite healthy considering that most of the items are traditional American food. Would recommend the cocktails and salads for lunch. The ambiance is beautiful inside and outside. Great for business meetings or dates.

    My first time here and I already can't wait to go back! Cute location in the heart of Woodside. The restaurant has been recently re-done and is top of line: classy and trendy. We sat outdoors and the outdoor seating is great (lots of room and planted greenery to help the ambiance). I'll start with the service - we had a great server who was attentive, friendly, and helpful. He was also quick - thank you to our server! The food was delicious! We had a party of 4 and came for brunch (around 11am with a reservation, which I'd recommend). We ordered french toast (OMG so good!!!), egg scramble, burger (my husband said the burger was one of the best he has had), coffee cake, and eggs rancheros. All of us were extremely pleased with our meals - tasty, fresh, and good size portions. Looking forward to returning! 10/10!

    This has always been a delightful place for lunch or dinner. Yesterday was a busy day at Village Bakery due to the graduation celebrations - Stanford for one. The service, the food and the fun ambience cheered my friend's spirits. Diego was helpful in his charming manner - describing dishes and giving excellent service !

    Had an eaten at the village bakery for dinner but hadn’t had there brunch yet. So I made a reservation for 2. It had rained earlier in the day and I reserved outdoor seating. I called ahead and the kind hostess greeted me and was able to accommodate a covered patio table. Once we arrived we were seated immediately, but to a table that wasn’t covered and slightly wet from the rain from earlier in the day. Our waiter immediately noticed the error and brought us a patio umbrella for cover and dry cushions for our seats. This was greatly appreciated and noted! We were quite hungry so we ordered the Fresh Strawberries and Maple Bacon to start. The House Coffee for me and the Filoli Fizz for her also hit the spot! Thick Cut French Toast and a Fried Chicken Sandwich with Spicy Pickled Slaw and a side of Fries (as well as the side of maple syrup to drizzle on top of the chicken) were absolutely to die for! All in all a great brunch date and great service! Will be back again!

    Best prime rib I’ve ever had! Would have liked to have seen a little more ambiance out on the front eating area. Food was excellent. Prices a bit high and not sure we liked the 22% additional fees.
