Rare to find a chef who tries so hard to come up with seasonal menus and interesting selections. Have never been disappointed. We love the prix-fixe, a wonderful value for the selection,amount and quality of the food, but the a la carte is also wonderful. We returned recently for Ridgewood Restaurant week, a prix-fixe that was simply fantastic, even with... More

Another night, another restaurant in Ridgewood for their Restaurant Week. So far it has been one hit and one miss and unfortunately tonight was another miss. My daughter and I went to the Village Green Restaurant tonight and when we walked into a completely empty restaurant, except for one other couple, we were shown to the table right next to... More

We had a great meal here tonight. The food was awesome but unfortunately the evening was spoiled slightly by an obnoxiously loud woman and her friend on the other side of the dining room! I'm not sure how people can be so rude as to discuss medical problems and procedures at the top of their voices while people are eating!... More

After reading the reviews and the description of the restaurant I have to say I was extremely disappointed. The ambiance is just ok, the wait staff was just ok and the food was not very good or flavorful.

Great choice for lunch. The menu changes with each season. Consistently exceptional cooking and presentation. Moderately priced, and you can bring your own wine. Elegant but comfortable, relaxed dining room, Professional wait staff.

Such a special place -- we've been here several times for birthday (loved it); Mother's Day; and New Year's Eve for the past several years. Even a regular night out is special when you're at Village Green!

Was introduced to this restaurant by a work colleague, who had been here before and raved about it. We had the 3 course lunch tasting course. Absolutely delicious, fresh and serving sizes were very adequate. Pleasant and efficient waiter. I am recommending this restaurant to another colleague for a group dinner. I can't wait to go back myself for dinner... More
