    I have been here many times for lunch. The fresh filet of sole is the best I have ever had. The servers are always very friendly and attentive. Great people watching on the patio.

    Great food I had the walnut crusted salmon salad. The salmon was cooked perfect, the crust was wonderful and moist inside. We had our choice of seating. We sat outside it was very nice.

    My wife and I wondered what a Lisa Vanderpump restaurant might be like, and loved Villa Blanca. The restaurant is tastefully appointed (not surprisingly in white), and the staff were warm and professional. It is a perfect spot for enjoying the visual flow of Beverly Hills life, and the food was excellent. My wife ordered the Chopped Salad (and loved it); I ordered the Pan Roasted Filet Mignon Sandwich: the thin, flavorful sandwich is pan roasted, making each bite delightfully crisp. I was spared the pain of accidentally extracting a string of dangling gristle, as the filet was butter. Finally, it was a hot afternoon, and the house Sauvignon Blanc was crisp and refreshing. Overall, this was a near-prefect lunch experience.

    there was a switch in the chef and you can tell by the quality of food. It just isn't what it use to be and even though it's an easy walk to the stores and over to VB from my house sadly I'm not likely to return. Also they were taping a random reality show there and the entire production crew stood 2 feet away from our table on the patio smoking then entire dinner which the VB staff seemed to think was ok. All these changes and way to many great resturants in the area add up to me not coming back with the same regularity.

    Hi this is my first time to eat at the restaurant. I didn't know what to expect but with the recommendation of my husband's niece, I took my friend from New York and whom I haven't seen for 13 years there. She liked the food and I was not disappointed. We had so much to catch up that we were told to leave since the restaurant was closing and even the valet person came to give us our keys since they are also closing.

    Dined on 11/1/2014
    I went to here to celebrate my sister's visit from Florida. I do like the location, décor etc., but our salads at $24 were a disappointment. I had the salmon/greens salad. The salmon was okay, but the greens: spinach and arugula were mostly twigs. There was no effort in removing the stems which made it mostly twigs/stems. I complained to the pretty waitress, but she just said she was sorry. I don't think I would go there again as there are other restaurants in B.H. with better lunches.

The food was excellent and the risotto portion was large enough for a second meal the following night We'll be back!

    Villa Blaca opened with a great deal of promise. That said, the menu has hardly changed and the service has gone completely downhill. Television hurt the crowd. I used to run into people all the time. The crowd definitely shifted and the staff is complacent. It took twenty minutes and three requests to receive the bill, making me late for my next appointment. I used to love Villa Blanca. Now it's simply a convenient location with pleasant decor.

    I was a bit apprehensive to try this restaurant after reading some of the negative reviews, I must admit I went because of the hype from the TV show, I was totally surprised. The Lamb Chops were to die for, everything at this restaurant was excellent. The staff was very gracious and friendly, the food was incredible, the scene was romantic (9th wedding anniversary) I do not know what anyone else experienced but I do not understand the bad reviews, my visit was incredible and I will return as soon as possible.

    Being a fan of the the real housewives of Beverley hills this was a place I had to visit. The food was amazing .Unfortunately the decor and restraunt interior and finishing we're not at the Beverley hills standard I was expecting. I guess I was expecting a bit more fom the vanderpumps, especially watching the show and seeing thir amazing house, parties. The toliet door would not close properly, the menus and tables where dirty.. It seemed a bit off. Whistle my husband and I where dinning we noticed the staff setting up a table for what I am guessing are celebrity guests. They where busy changing chairs(cleaner ones)wipping Menues, changing the flower arrangements on the table. Shouldn't everyone be treated to this ambiance of villa blanca?

    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.
