We chose this restaurant based on past experience and this trip's visit (twice!) did not disappoint. A separate "adult beverage" store inside has a very broad selection of wines you can enjoy with your meal. Excellent flavor and portion sizes are available. Rolls with various oils and butter are always ready. Excellent service without being bothersome. Overall a great experience... More

LOVE LOVE Village Gourmet! This is our go to when we want surf and turf. The town is dry, but this place has its own liquor store inside. Service can be weak at times but the food is always delicious and the staff is very accommodating.

what once was a great little restaurant in downtown Rutherford....now is not! We waited for our food for over 90 minutes. The food is diner quality & not worth the wait. The bathroom was dirty.
