On Wednesday we had our work holiday lunch for 6 of us at the Village Square. Our party was seated in one of the private rooms, which was a really nice touch.
I ordered the organic salad, grilled cheese and red velvet cheese cake. The salad greens, feta cheese and beets were fresh and quite tasty. The grilled cheese had thick cut bacon and avocado - this was a normal grilled cheese, it was truly a gourmet sandwich. Served with thick cut fries, this was a very nice lunch! For dessert, I had the cheese cake. It was set in a red velvet crust, also very delicious!
Our server was on her game and did a great job working our table. Overall I was highly impressed.— Anonymous Reviewer

Whole Crunchy Snapper and Gift Certificates = winning combo!
We had a gift certificate (discount) to use for Village Square that was garnered from wincfood.com's discount section. First of all, when you spend $8 to save $25 the food is bound to taste that much better. Okay, well maybe not, but the food was delicious. and#8232; We started off with the lamb stew, the flavors in this soup were so good. I ordered a cup and it was not enough, I wish I would have gotten a bowl. Next was a Caesar Salad, prepared just the way I like it. The dressing was the perfect blend of seasonings and not too much anchovy. It also had a few capers with shredded parmesan cheese.
Now for the main course, the Whole Crunchy Snapper was snapilicious good! The fish was lightly breaded with what appeared like just flour and seasoning and was deep fried and then drizzled with a sweet chili sauce. The heat of the sauce did not overpower the fish but did offer a nice depth to the dish. The meat came right off the bones and was so tender and buttery good. It was paired with fresh green beans and wild rice. The green beans had a little crunch to them and had a good flavor. The rice had a subtle flavor of coconut that made me want to eat every last grain.
I HIGHLY recommend using the discount section on wincfood AND ordering the snapper!— Anonymous Reviewer

Great service, great atmosphere, odd food problems, and more!
Went to VS this weekend. I'll start off with bad and bizarre. Bread is only given on request, so we requested it. Unlike 95% of the restaurants in the world, this bread is good, I mean real good, and the butter was at room temperature. That being said for a party of two, they brought us a basket of three pieces of bread, odd. In any case, I think we had 3 baskets of bread, like I said, it was good. When we got our bill, we were charged 2.00 for bread. I don't think I've ever seen a restaurant charge for bread, especially one with $25+ entree's. The funny thing is, if the bread was for sale, 2 bucks would have been a bargain, it just seemed petty and low class.
Unlike the butter, which was very nice at room temp, the oysters at room temp were not. Our frissee salad, was said to have walnut crusted goat cheese, it didn't, just dabs of goat cheese. Our dessert, was supposed to have a sea salt tuille, it didn't.
Now, for as poorly the executed as some of the dishes were, the foie gras and fillet were astoundingly good. The bacon used to wrap the fillet was wonderful compliment to the meat. The relish accompanying the foie was great, and the foie, cooked perfectly, was wonderful on our 2.00 basket of bread.— Anonymous Reviewer

Chef Dan is a real talent and it is clear that his staff loves their creations as much as the Chef. They are committed to local products and Animal Welfare Approved meats which puts them on the "top shelf" to begin with.
But being local does not make it good. Chef Daniel Kalber obviously spends lots of time finding the very best of Virginia's produce and meat for their menu.
The lamb is wonderful, mild and tender. The lamb sandwich (french dip) is great but it is at dinner that talents of the Chef are illuminated.
Staff is courteous and deligent and the setting is second to none. Just a pleasant experience all around with a talented kitchen staff.
The place in Winchester for a special meal and evening out on the town.— Anonymous Reviewer
