    THE STAFF WAS VERY FRIENDLY AND WELCOMING! HOWEVER I DID EXPECT SOMEONE TO SING HAPPY BDAY OR AT LEAST SOME TYPE OF DESSERT WITH A CANDLE. WE GO EAT EVERY YEAR AND THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THIS HASNT HAPPEN. OUR FOOD WAS TASTY HOWEVER I FELT THE PRESENTATION FOR THE MUSHROOM ROSITO WAS TERRIBLE, IT LOOKED LIKE THEY JUST LAID 2 PIECES OF KRAFT CHEESE ON TOP OF THE PLATE. OVERALL FOR WHAT WE PAID I DIDNT FEEL IT WAS WORTH IT.

    Villa has excellent food and drinks, the decor is beautiful, and the location is great. The service was so-so (surprising) but maybe that usually isn't the case? The AC was also broken. Again, i'm giving them the benefit of the doubt. I'd still say this is a pretty safe bet for any occasion.

    My visitor from out of town want to see Beverly Hills. So we made the trip from Newport Beach to Rodeo. Villa Blanca Patio was the perfect venue to people watch. Order the Pink Drink and as Margarita Pizza for a great snack while observing the eclectic populace of that area. The service was amazing, the perfect balance between attentive but not hovering . We will be back.

    I have wanted to dine at VB since I became a fan of Lisa's from RHOBH. Beautiful setting! Food when it arrived was okay but not what I requested! Wait servers...horrible. Too young to understand how to deliver good service for a dinner at this caliber. They communicated as if my guest and I were eating wings in a sports bar. Music was too loud and annoying. I traveled from Denver,Colorado and wanted to share with my friends how amazing it was upon my return...sadly, I can only say the decor gets a thumbs up!

  • Worst experience imaginable
    ChicagoFoodie
    Dined on 8/28/2014
    I should have known a celebrity owned restaurant would be disappointing, but I figured since the restaraunt predated the celebrity, perhaps the owners knew how to run a decent place. Everything about the experience, from the moment I arrived, was abhorrent. Waited nearly 20 minutes before anyone came to the table. Received only 1 of four drink orders and the others had to be flagged down from another waiter. Everyone got their food except for me. After having to get up to find a manager, since our waiter had never bothered to check on us after the food was brought, his attitude was to barely make any effort. Long after everyone had finished their meals, mine arrived - a nearly raw steak with bland potatoes. No comp offered.

    Truly enjoyed everything from the fresh bread and olive tapenade (on every table) and the delicious strawberry sparkling wine followed by the best caprese salad I have ever had. Main course salmon salad was excellent. Servers were friendly and attentive. Overall, an exceptional late lunch. Loved it!

    This was our first time eating at Villa Blanca and we were very impressed. Our evening started with an easy reservation on Opentable.com and things just got better from there. The restaurant is very easy to find, great Valet service out front and only a block away from Rodeo Drive. The food was excellent and I loved being that close to Rodeo Drive. After dinner we took a walk up and down Rodeo and it was the perfect ending to a mid week, spur of the moment date night with my lovely wife.

    although i have been here several times and had not so great experiences ( i was once served an ice cold salad on a plate right from the dishwasher that was too hot to even touch)i decided to give villa blanca another try..the restaurant decor although it is charming needs attention,it looks old and shabby and not in the shabby chic way..the banquette i sat on had the seat material all chewed up...other chair seats were very stained,2 of 4 light bulbs above me were out and 1 was flickering...the food was mediocre at best with very little imagination put into the menu..flavors and presentation are okay but the food is just boring...there are better places with more creative menus...its too bad because the place has a great ambiance...

    Booked to celebrate my sons birthday and last night of our holiday wanted somewhere special the food was presented beautifully we were given bread on arrival but it was stale. The filet mignon was delicious I would have preferred a little more mashed potato and sauce but overall we did enjoy it. We decided not to have desserts because they looked nothing special and I thought the prices were very reasonable , but service was slow, If I needed to say anything negative it would have to that I thought it was a little dark as I couldn't read the menu and the waitress suggested I hold the candle to the menu to read as everyone else does which doesn't seem ideal. Ladies restroom was scruffy and need attention but the restaurant is beautiful.

    From the outside looking in this restaurant seems stunning- the ambiance can not be beat. However, when looking at the details there seems to be a lack of effort. The table linens are not pressed, the flowers are wilted and about to die- if not already. The table I was at had stained linens, which was rather gross. The meal started off wonderful, but greatly started to decline in taste and presentation. By the time we reached dessert it was pathetic. I would say the worst part of it- was the waitress. She was rude, had a lack of knowledge and at one point completely ignored us when we asked a question. She turned her head to avoid us- when we uninsured about wine. For me this was just unacceptable. I will not be returning here again.

    Have eaten here many times before but will NEVER RETURN. The flowers were dying ( they used to pride themselves on their flowers), but the chopped salad was literally uneatable. The lettuce was wilted, the tomatoes mushy, the avocado brown and no flavor. Three of the four of us didn't eat it. The waitress said management was sorry and sent a free dessert. They should have offered to not charge us. BUT... The issue is... It was a crummy luncheon.

    Villa Blanca is a beautiful restaurant. Give Ms. Vanderpump her due, she's done a phenomenal job with the interior of this space. It's romantic. The food was good, but not great. I had the organic salmon, which was somewhat bland. Not a bad meal, but an uninspired one. The wine list could use some improvement. We ordered a bottle of the pinot noir and were disappointed. Much to my delight, the prices at Villa Blanca were incredibly reasonable. I would return and hope that the menu is jazzed up a bit...

    I wanted to eat hear because of Lisa Vanderpump. Unfortunately not there that day. The restaurant was beautiful and relaxing. Very cozy and welcoming. We dined outside and the cool breeze just added to the ambience. The Lobster Crisps (tiny tacos) were fabulous and we were fighting over the last one. The Lobster and Crab salad was so fresh and clean tasting - delicious! Even my husband and son loved it.
