    One of our favorite restaurants. I like that you may bring your own wine. We brought a nice one from our cellar which paired really well with the Prawns with Spicy Peanut Sauce and the Beef Tenderloin with Peppercorn Sauce.

    LeVilla is a Calgary oasis amid a desert of chain restaurants. The menu is relatively short but sufficiently varied to please most palates. The service is consistently excellent. Also you can engage in conversation without intrusive "music" of other people's taste.

    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.

    Unfortunately, my beef filet came to the table very over done. Asked for Meduim, got Well Done. The server offered to redo the steak, but I declined because I hate waiting while the other 3 members of our party are eating their meals; then I end up eating my meal by myself. Otherwise, our experience at LeVilla was good. The half price glass of wine on Sundays is a nice touch.

    It was usually a good experience when I visited LeVilla. However, I cannot say the same for this visit when I brought my parents to the place. The 2 steak dishes which we had asked for medium rare, are served as close to well-done if not charbroiled and close to tasteless. The duck breast was also over-cooked which attached skin were burnt. The Lobster Bisque was also too salty. Won't visit again for a while.

    Unusually busy for a Wednesday night but obviously the word is out as the number of larger table groups were in evidence. A good thing? Perhaps but it changes the ambience. The lobster Bisque was, as always, the best.

    Haven't been here for over a yr. Rick the owner must have taken his cooks to his new Mission location. The 4 of us, were looking fwd to a nice dinner, since we have not been back for over a yr. The duck confit was replaced by duck breast - you know it's bad, when you have to force yourself to eat & I pond the rest off to my son who is 20. The duck breast, was not crispy, felt it was microwaved, tasteless,mushroom risotto,pasty, 2 small pieces. bison, was super dry & steak tasteless. Cocktaills 14, our dish $30+. My son said Japanese Village was better. We don't mine paying more - but won't go again. Keg/Joey's/Earl's is better.

    We celebrated an anniversary at LeVilla and the food was excellent. The request for a "blue" steak is sometimes not understood but, in this case, the steak was perfectly cooked. The wine was an excellent Sonoma fume blanc and reasonably priced. All in all a great evening.

    My family and I recently visited LeVilla to celebrate three pending graduations. The restaurant itself is quite beautiful, and made a decent setting for a special occasion. The servers were generally friendly, but the service itself was VERY slow and lacked the attentiveness and hospitality I expect from a restaurant within a higher price range. The food was delicious and portion sizes were generous. I recommend it for the food alone, expect poor service.

    We gathered our family to celebrate a special occasion, and expected an experience suitable of the occasion. Sadly, the food let us down. Average at best. My halibut was overcooked actually needing the strange sauce drizzled over it to moisten it. How do you ruin meatballs and linguini? Both my husband and grandson found it 'ok' (overcooked linguini, sauce without spark, meatballs needing the cheese melted inside). At $39, the Steak Neptune should have been stellar - again just 'ok'. So, for a very upscale price, we had a disappointing meal. Thankfully the service was very good and we enjoyed the evening. Food was much better a few years ago when I last ate here.

    I always rate LeVilla as a unique and separate-from-the-crowd restaurant. My last visit totally changes my view. We always try their Chef's tasting menu, but this time the quality of the food is very poor. My wife and daughter ordered the steak which is close to well done. My Halibut dish is made of bits of small Halibut chunks. My son had the toughest prime rib ever. If they cannot keep up running for two restaurant, they should have focus on one.
