First time at LeVilla- one of SW Calgary's best kept secrets.
Filet was perfectly cooked and dinners arrived hot and in a timely manner.
Will definitely return!

We have been to LeVilla many times, both just the two of us and also with several guests. We keep returning because of the good food and excellent service. Always friendly and attentive. Just a suggestion regarding the young lady who came around with the pepper mill; she needs to know that you grind the pepper over the whole plate not all in one spot. Maybe she needs more instruction. I write this with a smile on my face......

We came for dinner for our
We came for dinner for our wedding anniversary and had an enjoyable meal. Although LeVilla is in the suburbs, it is nice to know that fine dining can be found without the need to drive downtown. Our waitress was most friendly and helpful. I ordered my steak 'blue' rare, and that's how it was served! Getting perfect rare tenderloin doesn't happen often.

Met all expectation !
Had heard about Le Villa from many sources and it did not disappoint! Need to return to try other menu items!

Great place for lunch
Three of us (2 people in their 80's) had lunch. Our criteria was: fairly quiet restaurant, good food & great ambiance. We were not disappointed on any level & we look forward to returning again.

this is our usual go-to restaurant
this is our usual go-to restaurant for fine dining and mature upscale atmosphere. the service is usually top notch, but last week we had a blip in the service, and the place seemed to be full of toddlers.

A great experience
Le Villa has been our favourite restaurant since we discovered it several years ago. The food is excellent, and presented well. One terrific benefit is that there is no loud music to compete against. As a result, we were able to converse in reasonable tones with our guests from Adelaide, Australia. All in all, Le Villa is a great place.
5/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
We do not live in Calgary but every time we travel there which is several times a year, we try to fit LeVilla in. We have never been disappointed with either the food or the service. In our opinion one of the best restaurants in the city.

We really like going here.
We really like going here. The only thing is... they may want to hire a few more servers. Our server was nice. However, she's not there when we need her. They really need to hire a few more.

Coquille st. Jacques outstanding.
Coquille st. Jacques outstanding. Steak Diane good and service efficient and friendly
Overall a pleasant dining experience.

But by no means quiet. I was hoping to have a lovely quiet evening with my Fiance but they sat us next to a large table and it was very hard to hear. We did however have a great view of the open concept kitchen. The food was great although I'll never understand how four shrimp are 14 dollars. Also our server was very nice but would interupt our conversation with 'were you just talking about x?'
Overall a great dinner, the price and food don't really match the ambience.
6/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was just perfect for our girls night out. The food was fabulous and the service adequate but not overwhelming. The noise level was such that we could have a very pleasant conversation without having to repeatedly say "pardon" because we could not hear, a pleasant change from so many new restaurants. We loved the glassed in patio, little bit of the outside while sitting inside.
6/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We've been here twice now. Each time was great. Top notch food and service.
6/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
great food , service and ambiance
Great food, service and ambiance makes this an excellent place for a great meal. Make sure you reserve the patio room. Great job Rick!

Great Evening Out
LeVilla never disappoints. The food was outstanding and we will most certainly be back again soon.

brought visitors from Ireland
All of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The noise level was low, so it was easy to converse. Went there on a Thursday for lunch.

Fantastic all around!
We dined at Levilla as part of a belated Mother's/Father's Day meal. There were 5 of us in total and each one of our every needs were met to perfection and always with a smile from our server.
The food was fantastic, ambiance (my request for a table a bit "to ourselves" was met wonderfully!) service and entire evening were a hit in every way!
Thank you, to EVERYBODY at Levilla! Already looking forward to our next visit!

One of our Favourite Restaurants
Le Villa is a great neighbourhood restaurant. The menu selection, food quality and service are generally both outstanding. We frequent this restaurant a lot and highly recommend. Get your reservation on patio area.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
We eat regularly at LeVilla as we find that it is consistently good. The staff are always attentive and friendly but with the perfect level of intrusion, I.e. no excessive interruptions, just enough to manage our needs and requirements. Over the last year or two we have been there many times but the occasions where I have had any cause for even minor complaints would probably number two or less (though nothing memorable enough to recount). Love the menu items and variety, style of cooking, level and type of seasoning, etc. Well managed, consistent, well trained staff. We live in the area but various friends we've introduced to this restaurant come from other areas of the city to eat here.

A basic steak house type menu
A basic steak house type menu for the most part, but what they do, they do well. So far I have never had a bad meal there.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was excellent in taste and presentation. I think the three course meal is very good value. The waitress was enthusiastic and charming. We always enjoy coming here.
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Have been there several times . Certainly one of the best Calgary restaurants.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
A little gem
This place always reminds me of a restaurant tucked away in the mountains, ambiance is A+.

Great little restaurant on
Great little restaurant on the west side. Quiet with lots of light in the closed in patio area. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. Service was good.

Best chocolate molten cake
We appreciated the warmth of the fireside table this time ( it is often a little too cool in the restaurant for me) and especially enjoyed the molten chocolate cake, perfectly done!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
A must! Great menu selection - everything looks tempting.
Beautiful decor and excellent staff.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have been going for many years and it's nice to see a place where standards and quality are maintained.

Dinner at LeVilla
First time at the restaurant for dinner. Food, service and ambience were great. I would recommend dinner at LeVilla for special occasions as it is pricy. We will definitely go again. We look forward to trying the tasting menu.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
We found LeVilla a couple years ago. Wanted to go for a great steak and I googled to find this place. It went from my birthday celebration place to our all-special-occasions place. The food has always been wonderful and I enjoy that it is not overly "fussy" food that I can't pronounce the names of. Nice portions, cozy ambiance.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband & sons took me here for my birthday! What a wonderful experience! My sons are 8 & 15, we always have trouble finding a nice kid friendly restaurant. I was quite taken aback that they had a kid menu at such a high end restaurant! The food was perfect! We had the steak Neptune & the steak dinner special. It was all done to perfection! Compared to franchises such as the Keg, this place is well worth the price. We even compared it to our travels in the US, & hands down this is the best!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excelent food, outstanding combinaton of flavors. I never get tired of the lobster bisque. This was my third time at Le Villa and I love it even more. Mini-buns right off the oven is a welcome that most restaurants cannot immitate. My wife and I have tried pretty much every entree on the menu. All of them great. Even my 9 and 6-year-old kids enjoyed it. Excelent service.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
I'd asked for a quiet table
I'd asked for a quiet table when reserving (my party had not seen each other for a lengthy period and were there for a 'catch up') but was given a table next to a large group obviously there for an occasion .. very animated chatter. When we asked for a change the hostess had noted our request and quickly and quietly accommodated us. Food and service was very good.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Be sure to ask for a table
Be sure to ask for a table on the north - window side of the restaurant - that's the nicest section.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Exceptional to say the least
Amazing as always. This place has a warm ambiance and the food is delicious. I would definitely recommend this place to anybody looking for an great place to dine. Whether it be romantic or casual.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was good except service was a little slow.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really enjoyed our meal, however,
Really enjoyed our meal, however, portions seem smaller than before. I had the lamb and was very surprised at the quantity on my plate. For the price i paid i would of expected a little bit more. The food presentation was outstanding. The waitress didn't stop by as often as we would like to. Trying to get her attention was also very difficult. I will still come back.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent As Always
Nice, relaxing dinner in a beautiful atmosphere. The food was wonderful and the wine was great as well. Logs burning in the fireplace gave the room such a cozy feel. Will definitely be back!
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great For Dinner and Conversation
Excellent restaurant for both dinner and for conversation. I have been to La Villa on a number of occasions and have always had an wonderful meal - you can't beat the Prime Rib dinner. Also the atmosphere is such that you can very easily carry on a conversation with you dinning guests. Highly recommended.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had a fantastic meal once again. Love the solarium half of the restaurant for ambiance. One of our favorite spots in the city. Service was excellent and we were given a table where we requested on a Friday night!
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
LeVilla had been recommended to us by a friend. We dined with another couple and were pleasantly surprised at the wonderful ambiance, fantastic food and excellent service! Everything was perfect for a nice night out. Will definitely recommend to our friends and make it our new favorite!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
a great all round restaurant
We were looking for a new restaurant to try out for an anniversary dinner and were very pleased with LeVilla. The Coquille St. Jaques appetizer was excellent and our Steak Diane and Prime Rib entrees were also excellent. Service was attentive, as we were there on a relatively quiet Wednesday night. We plan to return to this restaurant and try out other menu items.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
We decided we wanted a nice steak and wanted to try somewhere new. It was a special occasion (celebrating a new job) so we took entire family out for supper.
Service was prompt friendly and efficient. Wine list had excellent range of choices from iñexpensive to higher end. We all ordered some kind of steak except my sons girlfriend - she ordered the gnocchi. Salads came out quickly and were excellent. Steaks arrived same time as pasta and everything was hot and cooked to perfection. Excellent dining experience - looking forward to going back!

Great food for any occasion!
A guest and I dined Sunday night at LeVilla for the first time. Setting reminds me of a rustic mountain lodge, - views of snowy spruce and the city bathed in the light of a full moon just outside our window table. My guest ordered from main menu: coquille St. Jacques (scallops, mushrooms, and emmental cheese in a white wine cream sauce) and braised boneless bison short ribs, with horseradish mashed potatoes, asparagus, & carrots. I had the 3-course chef's tasting dinner with lobster bisque, prosciutto-wrapped prawns in orange vinaigrette, and grilled New York striploin (med-well) with sautéed mushrooms, roasted home-style potatoes, & grilled vegetables. Ample servings, deliciously prepared! Will definitely choose again!
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is a hidden gem that does not disappoint. Excellent food with a cozy fireside ambience. Would definitely recommend.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
My Favorite Restaurant
This restaurant is a gem. The ambiance is cozy, and inviting. The food is consistently outstanding. My best compliment I can give LeVilla is that it is my favorite restaurant.

Food and service was exceptional
Food and service was exceptional for a busy Saturday night.

food is good, but
Portions are a bit small. It was also a busy night so service was quite slow.
