A Japanese pub

The izakaya is the community hub. A welcoming place to eat and drink with friends and to celebrate life’s milestones. It’s a place where you can feel comfortably well known or sufficiently anonymous. With equal importance placed on food and drink. Arrive with a thirst and an appetite and you’re always welcome!

"three star Japanese pub"  "worth the drive over the bridge" ~ Michael Bauer, SF Chronicle

Village Sake is a Japanese pub serving mouth-watering Japanese “izakaya" fare with finely paired sake and craft beers. Having visited izakaya throughout Japan, we’ve long known that the relaxed pub feel, fantastic sake, and succulent small dishes would be a perfect fit in Fairfax. Village Sake will become the go-to pub to finish the day after enjoying the local trails, lakes, and activities, complementing streets that are already alive with vibrant people enjoying food, music, and friends.
