Diner Reviews
  • "We have been visiting the LA area for years & have always wanted to check out this restaurant. Our friends, who live locally, have never gone either, so we decided to go for lunch. Be sure to make reservations, just in case it's a busy day. We decided to take a table on the patio. I was afraid it might be too noisy, but it wasn't at all. The music that was played on the sound system was just the right volume and was very current. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. Everything we ordered was outstanding. We ordered 2 appetizers, the ahi tuna tartare, which my friend said was "the best" tartare he had ever had, & the crispy rock shrimp. Entrees were the Chopped Salad, Salmon Penne, Lobster/Crab Salad & Filet Mignon Flatbread Sandwich."

  • "I enjoyed my lunch here even though it was a little warm. The ambience is beautiful and my food was very good."

  • "The inside of the resto was a bit dingy, white furniture that desperately needed to be cleaned, scratches on the walls throughout, sticky menus with ripped binding, curtains broken from the rods on the outside of the resto. It looks so much more elegant from the television show than it does in person. The pizza was large and tasted good, but the lettuce cups were a bit too mayonnaise-y and had a bit too much chicken and not enough other ingredients. I think the concept of the restaurant is definitely relaxing with shades of whites, greys and beiges.. but it needs to be kept clean to work. I was disappointed that the details that matter were not really looked after by staff."

  • "As a foodie, my expectations were quite high for this restaurant. Suffice it to say, I was not "wowed". The apps (crab rolls & lobster crisps) were underwhelming as were 2 entrees, (carbonara and paella). Pasta over cooked, Risotto overcooked. For the amount we spent, $170.00, we should have been impressed by at least one of the dishes and that just didn't happen."

  • "I enjoyed the food and it's really a great spot for people watching. Beautiful decor, which needs a little attention but only a critical, detail-oriented eye would notice."

  • "When we travel to Orange County, we find time to visit Villa Blanca. We have dined here several times. The staff is phenomenal. The food is perfect. The Seafood Paella is my favorite, followed by the Lobster Crisps. The flowers are beautiful and smell so wonderful. I enjoy this restaurant so much each and every time I visit. Our last trip we brought our nieces to eat here for a mini family reunion. They took photos around Villa Blanca and are still talking about the fun they had here."

  • "This restaurant wasn't what I expected at all. Food was just ok, but the service made me sad. My sisters wine glass shattered on her and no one even noticed until we had to wave them down. Then the waitress had the nerve to examine my mothers food as she wouldn't eat anymore because she was afraid glass was in there. The waitress had no idea how to handle the whole event and after she spoke to the manager, they first just offered us 20% off the bill, I was offended by that. What if someone got seriously hurt? We finally got just my mothers meal comped. I've had experiences where the entire bill was taken care of and not even be questioned. You always take the customers word for it. Nevertheless I was disappointed."

  • "We went on a Saturday night expecting it to be full and with a great ambience. Our surprise when we saw there was not a lot of people, the service was very slow, food is ok not amazing. The daughter of the owner was there going up to certain tables, but no to all. Really expected much more, more details, more personal touches."

  • "First visit was lovely. This time was a huge disappointment. We sat outside and were harassed by a kid selling candy-- no restaurant staff was around to intervene. The ahi tartare appetizer was ver flavorful, the calamari was overcooked. Except for the caesar salad all of the entrees appeared made by someone still in culinary school-- poor presentation, mediocre taste. The bus girl spilled an entire glass of champagne on one of us and did not apologize at first-- acting as if it was his fault. The champagne in question had been brought by the waitress because it was an over pour-- none of us wanted it. Her response to the spill was "if you had drank it it would not have spilled"."

  • "It was my first time in LA, and Villa Blanca ruined all LA restaurants for me forever. The ambiance was divine, the food was out of this world, and it surprised me how normal everything was. I was expecting an exclusive, high-end dining experience with a dress code and the like. However, I felt very comfortable walking through the restaurant. I love love loved my experience at Villa Blanca, and WILL be returning if I'm ever back in LA."

  • "My girlfriend and I came here for dinner one night while on vacation in LA. It was a wonderful time, the service was very helpful and we were able to speak to the waitress about some hot spots to visit while we were in town. I would definitely go back if I end up visiting LA again."

  • "Loved the atmosphere and the service was amazing! I thought that the food we ordered was "average" and for that it was over priced. Many other restaurants I would like to try before having "average" food again"

  • "My friends and I went to Villa Blanca to celebrate a birthday. The decor looked worn and there were no fresh flowers which Lisa always highlights on RHBH as a must. We sat outside as it was a beautiful day. The food was just okay but expensive, the rock shrimp appetizer was undercooked and sandwich so-so. The service was good but the tables are so close together the waiter had to bring drinks from outside and hand over the railing. We decided the place must be staged when filming. I think Cheesecake Factory down the street would have been better. LOL"

  • "The setting, decorations, flowers and white tablecloths were perfect. The food was ok. I had the lettuce cups.... Too much chicken. There needed to be more of the corn, lettuce and the rest of the mixture and less chicken. It was fun place to visit..... I was so hoping that Lisa Vanderpump stopped by but no such luck."

  • "I have eaten at Villa Blanca many times and always loved the food. Lunch this week was not good. Wine tasted old; lobster and crab salad tasted funny and hardly had any seafood, mostly lettuce; tuna tartare very mushy. Won't return for awhile. New chef?"

  • "I brought up a group of girlfriends from Orange County. One friend was celebrating her 50th Bday. Our waiter was Brent. He could not of been nicer. We ended up staying for several hours. He was the perfect waiter! Food was incredible as always. I really love the atmosphere and food at Villa Blanca. Great great overall experience! Carol Bailey"

  • "Lovely decor and atmosphere. Although the food was good, there wasn't anything truly interesting on the menu - standard stuff. Had to ask 4 times for lemon for our water. Overall, nothing extraordinary."

  • "Tempura shrimp was great-sea bass was rather bland. Limited vodka selection."

  • "overall it was ok but the bread that was brought to the table was not fresh which is the first part of the meal not a good start "

  • "Only one waiter for the entire restaurant. If the place is going to cut down on staff to save money, it should also reduce its prices. Otherwise, the food was good as usual."

  • "Blown away by the decor as it is amazing. I saw a sausage and sweet pea pasta on the menu and then couldn't see anything else as I wanted the pasta, it was delicious in a pink sauce. I had a pinky cocktail which was made with vanderpump vodka which was excellent and I can't fault anything. The service was friendly and i just wanted to move in !"

  • "Celebrated our father's 75th birthday on Thursday. We came 5 of us for lunch, and couldn't have been more disappointed from the lack of service. We had a terrible experience with service from a girl that really didn't care to make a difference. It's so sad to see such a beautiful restaurant, excellent food, pay a "nice price" and yet... Terrible service.. That's an understatement!"

  • "We decided to visit villa blanca whilst in honeymoon and we definitely had a great evening. My new husband is a fussy eater so it was great to find a good restaurant with multiple choices he could enjoy (one of the main reasons we choose here) the service was exceptional, Jenna looked after us and was friendly and knew the menu well. We're from the uk and if any of our friends are visiting Beverly Hills I would tell them to make this a priority. If you're dining there and save room for pudding you HAVE to try the Brasilia!! "

I had the salmon which was cooked to perfection and my daughter had the Tuna tarte. Creme Brûlée for dessert was so delicious. The ambiance was quiet and tasteful. We will definately return."

  • "Although the restaurant is "nice", everything else was just subpar at best. First off, we were seated at an awkward 3 person table. There was a short, odd shaped chair that was placed at the edge of the step. My girlfriend went to sit in it, and it fell off the step. Luckily, she caught herself before a bad fall, but this chair is a severe liability. I can't believe an upscale restaurant would even consider a seating option like this. Second, it took one hour before the server could even take the order for our food. It seemed as if our server was the only one on our whole side of the restaurant. Unacceptable. Third, my girlfriends and I ordered the seabass. The seabass was just ok, nothing special. Presentation was poor."
