Better than expected!!!Sometimes when there is a lot of hype or publicity around a celebrity-owned restaurant, it just does not live up to expectations. But Villa Blanca does. It was more intimate than I expected and the staff was helpful and very courteous.
The food was wonderful. I had probably the best paella I've ever had there with bountiful amounts of seafood and beautiful presentation. I took two of my business colleagues there for a special evening and we were all more than pleased w/ everything.
I would definitely recommend Villa Blanca as a dining destination. It lives up to its reputation.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMconsistently great food andconsistently great food and service in a beautiful setting5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and atmosphere!I was surprised by the small menu options and by how delicious each items were! I loved the beat salad and the sea bass was out of the world. My mother and I a fabulous time sipping on strong cocktails and people watching among the lovely decor. The service was not great, but good. We did come during a shift change though so that may account for what I thought was a lack of more attention. Overall, I would love go back!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMagnificent Mother's Day!Villa Blanca was a great place to celebrate mother's day with my mother, aunt, best friend and her mother. We sat on the patio, enjoyed the sun and the relaxed environment was perfect for delicious food and lively conversation. Our server, a handsome, courteous African-Amercian waiter was the icing on the cake. He anticipated our every need, which made us feel very welcomed and comfortable. The food was superb and mouth-watering, with portion sizes large enough to enjoy there and take home for later.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Charm, Good FoodWent for Mother's Day Brunch and was not disappointed. Will go back for dinner next time. Enjoyed our time there.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHeaven on Earth was the totalHeaven on Earth was the total experience. We did not want to leave.

We had the steak it was fantastic , cooked to perfection!
The only thing I noticed was staff out the back eating talking and not doing to much work. Our server How ever what great .
We will be back and we have recommend it to family and friends already.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service was excellent,The food and service was excellent, but do not dine adjacent to the bar, which can be loud, and so the romantic aspec of the dining experiece is lost.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMCheap teaThe food was great, the decor was beautiful and relaxing. But one thing I do have to say is that the owner being from England she does buy some cheap tea, that kind of tea I buy it in smart and final and it costs me 5 dollars for a box. So I would skip on the 5 dollar tea, just wait and go home to make you're own tea !5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply Amazing!The service and ambiance is top notch. Always a favorite go to for lunch.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreatFood was great, service was excellent! Great Sangrias5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFun restaurant. Always a goodFun restaurant.

THANKS VILLA BLANCA FOR A WONDERFULL EXPERIENCE, THE HISPANC LADIES SERVIING WATER AND CLEANING TABLES WERE VERY NICE AND HELPFULL.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved the AuraI loved the restaurants decor, ambiance and the the joy filed server we had. I brought my mother for her birthday and we sat inside to admire all the decor. The food is average, but then again, we got a penne pasta with shrimp. not bad, but nothing too special about the taste of the food. I'll probably be coming here more often during the hot summer days for brunch / lunch.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat NightWe booked this restaurant being huge fans of the RHOBV show from Australia - we were a little disappointed that Lisa wasn't there, being a Saturday night, but the food was divine and our waitress was fantastic. I'm a little surprised at how 'quiet' Beverly Hills is, even at the restaurant, it was pretty much all over by 11pm and walking the streets back to our hotel (Beverly Wilshire) we were lucky to find one or two places still open. Overall a great night, though a little more 'excitement' would have been an extra bonus since we did come all the way from Australia for the experience.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing restaurant !!!Delicious food , great service , outstanding ambiance !!!
Can't wait to go back :)5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond time here. Food wasSecond time here. Food was very good. Our server Jenna was outstanding. Super friendly, great recommendations. It's a beautiful place to dine. My only disappoitment were the desserts. Average at best (creme brûlée and panna cotta). Oh well, won't stop me from returning!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFavorite Restaurant in LAWe always go to Villa Blance when we are in LA. Love the food, ambiance and the food is great. It's been a great experience for lunch and dinner.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth every bite!Everything starting with the olive tapenade with bread, was fantastic. Great inventive cocktails like the VB Cosmo(white). As an appetizer, the king cab roll was scrumptious, big enough to share. We both had the grilled shrimp over sea bass and truffle risotto. The chef knows how to cook a risotto, just the right amount of creaminess and flavor. The shrimp had a sweet miso glaze which was just enough, not over-powering. If there was anything less than perfect, it would old be that from VB being so busy, the furnishings are looking a bit tired and in-need of a refresh. But I'm a designer and notice those things. Would definitely go there again, in a heartbeat.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMHad an amazing time diningHad an amazing time dining at villa Blanca will come back again and will definitely recommend to others.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMA Beverly Hills GemIt was a great Hollywood experience. Great for celebrity sighting. Food was great and service was better. Our waiter Jason (Lisa Vanderpumps son in law) was very pleasant and had a great smile. Would highly recommend lunch here.

Being picky, the restaurant (service, decor, ambiance) could have been better with some minor hiccups, but the meal & food itself was fantastic. I had the prime filet w/mashed potatoes and broccoli and the wife had lemon chicken - A+ for all. The valet outside was very professional and prompt, highly appreciated after fighting through rush hour traffic to get there. Would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet romantic dinner in Beverly Hills.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBeen there many times andBeen there many times and the food and service are always good.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had the best dinning experienceWe had the best dinning experience here, food was amazing and the restaurant style is very impressive.

And even tho our server had been on the show and she and her husband were there (with jiggy), it was low key. Took my kids, they loved it too. Already recommended it already to several people.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA perfect Beverly Hills experienceThe food was great but the service was even better! Our server Jenna was energetic and recommended a perfect wine and talked us into one of the best desserts we have ever had - The sticky rice pudding cake.

We were able to get a patio seat, which gave us a nice view of the activity on Brighton Blvd. Our servers were very attentive. The chicken salad I had was delicious and healthy. Just the light fare I wanted on a hot LA day. The only problem we had was a tippy table, which was remedied promptly by a staff member once we drew attention to it. The menu is reasonably priced.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI completely enjoyed diningI completely enjoyed dining at Villa Blanca with my family and friends. We were seated immediately upon arrival.

We walked in to see Lisa working and Ken answering phones. Every person walking in was personally taken care of. There were no cameras anywhere, so it was real work, not filmed. Lisa was so kind to everyone. The gentleman host was absolutely attentive to each customer in giving time frames as often as he had them. It was super busy, but no drama, and service was spot on. It was nice to see Scheena working and happy. I have no complaints. The added bonus was running into Florence Henderson.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a fantastic eveningWe had a fantastic evening and it was topped off when my wife met with Lisa.
