    Great restaurant. We all had the filets and were not disappointed! Other steakhouses charge at least $3.00 for sauce on the side.... They included wild mushroom, peppercorn or bernaise with the cost of dinner. The sides were delicious as well. Save this one for a great date-night. Guaranteed to get the girl!! :)

    Our food was really good. We tried to order 2 different wines and they where not available so we asked if maybe they had this wine or that wine that wasn't listed and they did, Frustrating that we had to do that. Service started out pretty good, but other people who came in after us received there wine, main course before we even received our appetizers???? We had brought friends out with us so this didn't make the great things we have said in the past about the service seem right. I would go again as this could have been a one off, as our past experiences have been really great!

    It's nice to find a neighbourhood restaurant that offers a pleasant evening meal out. Some of their specials are a good idea too - like the half priced appetizers and no corkage fee. We did find the service not quite up to scratch- a bit slow but other than that no complaints. We sat by the fireplace too and that felt really good on such a cold night. I think next time we will try their beef menu as I understand they are known for that!

    Overall the food tasted great but the Coquilles St. Jacques was cold. and the service was a little slow. I know the potential is there and I'm going to try lunch again next week. In fairness, our server was new and perhaps with a few more weeks under her belt she will do much better. She was very polite and eager to help.

    Located in the centre of a small outdoors neighbourhood mall, leVilla stands out as a small village restaurant. The interior too carries out that theme. The food is also well presented, and always appetizing. Selection is extensive. Unfortunately, while its great for groups, that attribute can also be distracting if a particularly loud person(s) is in that group. The rest of the good points helps overcome such an event! This is true in most eateries.

    We live in the area and often dine at Le Villa. The food is always good and usually so is the service. Unfortunately our last experience was less than desirable. While the food was good, the service was very slow, inattentive and sadly lacking in any kind of personal connection. One of the members of our party did not even get what she ordered. Perhaps she was overloaded with tables but I guess that should be a consideration of the management. We will give it another chance but just a heads up!

    We went as a group of six to celebrate a birthday. The restaurant is well decorated inside, and has received an expansion to what was the former patio. The restaurant tends to seat people on the expansion area, which may be great during summer days but has little to offer on nights (and colder days). While the food was great (the ravioli were superb), the service was less illustrious. Our wine order was delayed to the point that we had finished our appetizers before they had to be reminded and served our wine. In addition, servers were not readily available, requiring us to go to pay to the front as nobody was stopping by to receive payment.

    This was not my first visit to LeVilla. My family and I love this restaurant. But, this time servuce was terrible. We were the first customers to arrive for dinner, our order was taken in just a moment, but everything we ordered took ages to arrive. The worst part is that our server did not even try to approach us with an explanation. I had to almost jump on the table to get her attention. When I complained about the delay, she just said "I'm so sorry but we are very busy". What an apology to be given to the first customers that arrived after the restaurant was open!

    My wife and I went for Thanksgiving dinner with my dad who is 90 years old and his girlfriend who is 82. We were placed in the indoor/outdoor dining area that made you feel like you were outside in a backyard but still in the restaurant. You could see the beautiful tress and when the window were open you can smell the fresh air. The food and service was excellent and we will come back again.

    Goat cheese salad was poorly done. Too little olive oil and too much vinegar. Goat cheese was soaked with vinegar and veges weren't crunchy. Shrimps in avocado salad didn't taste fresh. Main dishes were up to standard. Quite disappointed with the salads.

    This is a great restaurant. I am a long time Open Table user and a frequent and long time diner at LeVilla but this is my first review of LeVilla (I am reluctant to share the good news - I'd hate to have too much trouble getting a reservation!). Our experience there has been consistent - excellent food, very good service, absolutely lovely setting. I keep going back because its so consistent. Couldn't recommend it more highly.

    Just 4 of us for dinner. Food as I remember was good. Service was very amateurish. Server was a nice young lady, but salads arrived before appy's, main courses arrived one order was wrong, and to top it off we had to wait a good 5 minutes for cutlery our food got cold. Yes cutlery. They ran out and where cleaning it. I was blown away. This is not an inexpensive place. Poor wine wine list and no sense of basic service. Had not been there for a couple of years and I remember why. Many other choice in the area.

    The food was delicious, however the price was a bit exorbitant for the casual service we received. This place is definitely not set out for a romantic evening; we had to sit across from each other, as there was no place to sit side-by-side, which was disappointing.

    Dined on 9/19/2014
    The restaurant section was near empty and we were sat at a table directly under an air conditioning vent. We asked if it was possible to have it turned down and were told yes, nothing changed. Then we were told it couldn't be done and no offer was made to move us to another table. Starters, arrived cold not cool but cold. The kitchen prepared food and left it to sit before service. Quality was modest at best. The staff certainly had plenty of time to visit but no time to serve customers their food. I sent the food back, something I have not done in a restaurant in almost 2 years. The dishes were willingly replaced without problem. Main course Cesar salad was almost flavourless, lamb was fair. Will not be back. Price exceeded quality.

    A special occasion - my sister's birthday, a visit from my brother and his wife from Ontario and a chance to spend some time with our 95 year old aunt was made even more special by our server who was just lovely. She even supplied us with a birthday dessert and a round of dessert wine. The food was great - from the prime rib to the steelhead trout. Just a perfect evening.

    Although this place is not cheap, it is well worth the price. We had bison meatballs for a starter and then shared Pan Fried Steelhead Trout (Seared Scallop, Citrus Hollandaise, Lobster Risotto, Arugula) along with the Pan Roasted Duck Breast (Balsamic-Orange Reduction, Mushroom Risotto, Vegetables). Highly recommend both. The Callebaut Mousse Tower (Wild Berry Compote) for dessert was also a winner. I found the pecan pie (chocolate and ice cream) only okay.

    Le Villa is very convenient for us but even if it wasn't, we would come regularly. The standard of the food and service is always consistently great! Anytime we want an excellent evening of food and wine - and we're not looking to experiment - we come back to Le Villa. It's worth noting here that of the many great dishes served, the steaks are particularly excellent. Some of the staff know us now and we're always welcomed as return customers; however, even the staff who don't know us are welcoming and friendly in a way that always feels sincere. The restaurant doesn't benefit from any special outlooks or views but they manage to create an enjoyable and pleasing ambiance. Thanks to Brittany and the staff for creating this "local gem".

    I read the reviews for the restaurant before going there for lunch. The biggest complaint was slow service. So I was pleasantly surprised that this was not the case. The waitress was attentive and checked on us regularly, without giving us the feeling of rushing us out the door. The food was fantastic. This is a place to go to when you would like to have a fine dining experience without being rushed. I found LeVilla was a refreshing change and I will definitely be back.
