Diner Reviews
  • "Ordered sea bass and paid for sea bass - got tilapia"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "The place used to be really good. We recently dined there and one of the dishes was terrible. The cook must have accidently put cinnamon in a white wine pasta sauce (pasta with lobster). After telling our server, they told us they would fix it. However, the same dish came back, they just added tomato sauce to mask the cinnamon flavor (which the cook did not succeed in doing). So sad to see this place go downhill. With so many restaurants to choose from in Dallas, we won't be coming back here."

  • "We consistently select Villa O for brunch, because it has great food and drinks, and is one of few places that accepts reservations (for brunch). Great as always."

  • "I have been to Villa O for their weekend brunch many times. I have to say on Saturday I was disappointed with the wait time for our table (yes, we had reservations) and my food. Of course, the drinks were great as usual. I ordered the Neapolitan Pizza (cheese pizza). I had it once before and it was great. Not so much this time. Every other slice had no cheese, way too much olive oil, and the bottom of the crust was charred (but not in a good way). Overall, we had a good time. I will be going back, but I think I'll skip the pizza!"

  • "I had brunch here with a friend - the food was great and the prices are excellent. We both had the omelette and fruit, and we were both surprised at how much food we got for the low price. I highly recommend making a reservation as it is very busy. Their Sunday brunch 3-entree, kids under 15 eat free is an excellent deal."

  • "We keep coming back with friends for the fennel encrusted scallops. They also serve Hook and Ladder Chardonnay by the glass if you don't have enough people to share."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Back to back nights should tell you something. Friend and I started with some good tasting Malbac. Salads were our starters. Dinner was an awesome chicken and pasta in a meat sauce. Good place."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "Came in with four special friends. For three of them it was their first time and they truly enjoyed it. Excellent starters and the fish specials and pasta were the main dishes. All great service and food."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Come here for brunch all the time. Drink specials are $10 all you can drink mimosa, Bellini, bloody Mary, probably a couple of others I can't recall... you can change drinks too and try all the ones they offer. Service and food is good. It can get a bit loud inside so if the weather is good, opt for their great patio. If you don't have a reservation on weekend the wait can get pretty long but I made reservations the last couple of times and had practically no wait at all."

  • "Outstanding dining experience, as always! Villa O has a great bottomless mimosa, bellini, sfuzzi and bloody mary option for around 10 per person and it's well worth it. Good food as well as a great atmosphere make VO a favorite for Sunday Brunch. And if so inclined, they also do it (brunch) on Friday and Saturday as well. As for Jade, she's a gem!"

  • "We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of food at this restaurant. The eggplant parmesan is a must have!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The service was so bad only one waitress for all the tables that we're having lunch. We were 6 nobody liked their food, it was tasteless."

  • "We had a perfect valentines dinner here. Highly recommend it."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Food was good. Waitress service was excellent. Place is a little noisy and so hard to talk. However big issue was the management. It is ok to make a mistake but make sure you correct it then and there. Because of a specific manager we will never set foot back in this place again. Even when they recognized that a mistake had been made their efforts to correct were pretty insulting. Too many great places in Dallas to spend money here again. I hope they learnt from this experience and never treat anyone like this again"

  • "Bunch was served cold and food was mediocre. The staff, however, was attentive & friendly. They're to be commended for managing a very busy day with many guests crowing the restaurant - out to enjoy the unseasonably warm weather."
    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "We've had brunch several times at Villa O and it's always superb! The service can't be beat and the menu offers something for everyone. This time, we all had the organic omelet (my favorite), along with Bellini's and Mimosas. It was a perfect meal and plenty of great stores near by if you want to walk a little after your meal!"

  • "We made a reservation for Sunday brunch for 11:30. Upon arrival, we were told to have a seat in the lounge area and that we would be notified when our table was ready. At 12:15 we were finally taken to our table where we had to wait another 30 minutes for our order to be taken. Our server was curt, and rarely checked on us. The large party next to us combined with the blaring music was so loud, our party of four could hardly each each other. The food was decent, but not noteworthy enough for a repeat visit, especially not enough to endure the appallingly rude Uptown crowd. If you are an early twenty-something looking for a brunch spot to see and be seen, this may be for you, but if good service and quality food are priorities, skip Villa-O."

  • "I'm not sure what else to say. We're here all the time, so I always give the same review. The only thing that stood out this time was our waitress, Camille, who was charming...and just great."
    Dined on 1/12/2014
  • "This was not our first trip to Villa O, and doubt it will be our last. It was slow at 7:30 Friday, but bustling by 9:00. This was the first time we sat in a booth - the cushions sink to an awkwardly low level (and I'm 6'3" 175 lbs). Some may like that, but I will stick to regular tables there from now on. Service was exactly what we like in our dining experiences - not too little, not too much. Our waitress was patient with us as we had a difficult time deciding on our entrees. Food highlights were the Caesar salad with polenta croutons (nice for gluten-free diners), spaghetti frutti di mare, lentil-bean soup, sauteed spinach and parmesan risotto. We also enjoyed the reasonably priced Pinot Noir from the Friuli region."
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "Food is always wonderful. We brought some out of town guests, and they thoroughly enjoyed everything. But the service is rarely on-point. They're SO busy, and never seem to be adequately staffed."
    Dined on 12/29/2013
  • "We live in a suburb of Dallas, but we don't mind making the drive to enjoy the brunch. We go with our friends and on patio days bring the kids to enjoy the vibrant scene at villa-o. Bottomless sfuzzis are the best and the italian benedict."
    Dined on 1/5/2014
  • "I was so happy to find this gem of a restaurant, especially on New Year's Eve. The food was absolutely fantastic .. I had the scallops and they were cooked to perfection. The Caesar Salad was one of the best. Back to the scallops .. they were on bed of greens and thin sliced potatoes which in turn were nestled on the best pesto I have ever had. Since it was already 8:30 on New Years Eve, it was fairly noisy, but people were having fun and I didn't mind the upbeat atmosphere. We will be going back and bringing lots of friends with us!"
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "My wife and I are new to the Dallas area and a co-worker recommended Vill-O. My wife had the N.Y. Strip which was absolutely among the best I've ever tasted, and I had the lasagne which was excellent. Ambience is nice, there were many families with kids, no babies fortunately. Our server was pretty disinterested in our satisfaction, didn't make us feel welcome when he first came to our table. Maybe he didn't like working Christmas Eve, but he still has to satisfy his customers that are spending their hard earned money. It's the job of a server to be polite and add to the dining experience. The food is so good that we'll go back again, even if the service was below average."
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "There's not really much more to say. Pizza and pastas are always great. The brunch drinks are always great."
    Dined on 10/27/2013
  • "They have a great 3 course Sunday night dinner for $16 where kids eat free!"
    Dined on 12/1/2013
  • "This was our first time to Villa-O. We reserved a table for eight for a birthday brunch. The manager and wait staff greeted us at the door as we brought in a birthday cake, gifts and a few decorations. They were very helpful and attentive throughout the party. It was a great time and the staff really went above and beyond to help make the celebration special. The food was very good especially the breaded mushrooms and flat bread appetizers. We'll be back."
    Dined on 11/24/2013
  • "We got there early to avoid the Brunch rush. Service was fair to ok...they brought one plate out about 7 minutes before the others. Then came two more plates (we were a 4 top) and a few minutes later, the child's breakfast. The food was tasty, but not terrible hot. It seemed a bit odd since there were only about 6 tables seated at the time. I have definitely had better experiences at this restaurant. Bottomless cocktails is a good idea at Brunch!"
    Dined on 11/24/2013
  • "They have a great patio to enjoy brunch on. I had the breakfast pizza and a bellini. They were both out of this world. I would recommend this restaurant!"
    Dined on 11/3/2013
  • "Two in our party of four had been there before, but, had forgotten how truly wonderful the food is. One had salmon, one had a special pasta, and two had the branzino, which is a Mediterranean sea bass. It was superb. We also ordered the portobello mushroom frites as a appetizer, which were very good too. I was one of the ones who ordered the sea bass, and I guess I am kind of a sea bass snob. It was outstanding. We four totally recommend Villa-O."

  • "I had not dined here in a while. Really terrific from start to finish! I am definitely adding this to my favorite go-to spots!"

  • "This is my 4th time to Villa O and it never disappoints! Amazing food, great wine, outstanding service. Our waiter this time was the best I've ever had- so friendly, helpful, and made our dining experience so wonderful. I brought my mom here for the first time and she absolutely loved it! Keep up the good work, Villa O. :)"

  • "Our 3rd time to Villa-O. Food was fresh, simple Mediterranean as always. Friendly wait staff. Nice wine list. You can dine outdoors if the weather allows. Travis St. is a cool area as well. Branzino was great. Veal scallopini closer to adequate. Had a nice chianti for $35. Salads and appetizers were excellent. Will be back."
    Dined on 11/1/2013
  • "I love Villa-O's Brunch menu. The special for 10 dollars all you can drink is an amazing deal and my absolute favorite thing on the menu is the chicken and waffles."

  • "The restaurant has set an inside table, noise and being very busy, we asked to be seated outside. They rearranged the tables and made us feel welcome"

  • "The food never disappoints. Reasonably priced good wines, great pizza and pasta. I have ate here a handful of times now and never had bad service or bad food."
