Diner Reviews
  • "Small brunch menu. Mediocre food. Was a big let down since I had heard nothing but rave reviews from my friends about brunch. I had a Caprese salad that was just chunks of mozzarella and tomato, each should have been sliced and drizzled with EVOO and Balsamic Vinegar and topped with fresh basil. My shrimp crepes was just OK. On a good note, good bottomless mimosas and excellent people watching."

  • "Great drink specials + awesome food! This is hands-down our favorite place to bring guests for BRUNCH. Their food is always tasty, fresh & they have great healthier options. Great, energetic lunch crowd makes for great people watching, too!"

  • "I went here with a friend this week and had a great time. We went early so were able to take advantage of happy specials. Our favorite dish was hands down the mussels. I was tempted to order a second order; just yummy. We had the Italian salad also which was light and tasty. I wish dessert options were a bit more plentiful but none the less we will definitely be back to try more things on the menu."

  • "We went on a Monday night and sat outside on the patio. The weather was perfect and we had a wonderful evening! The food was amazing, soo delicious! The bread they serve there is amazing. Be careful you don't eat so much you fill up! Their house wine was delicious. Pair it with good company and you have a fantastic evening!"

  • "We had a wonderful time at Villa O. The food was wonderful. We shared a couple of appetizers - Tuna TarTar and Calamari - both were great. Thought the wine list contained mostly lesser known brands, I chose based on vineyard location, Anderson Valley, and was pleasantly surprised since this was a moderately priced wine on their list. I didn't go wrong choosing this wine. We ate very little of the main courses but they were great the next day - ravioli and lasagna. The dessert was eaten entirely. A great place for a birthday dinner."

  • "Tuna crudo appetizer was great. Pinot was so so and really dislike the new brand of sparkling water they've changed to."

  • "This is a great Italian restaurant. You don't get typical plates that are way too big and over sauced like many Italian places. The decor and atmosphere is great as well. Definitely a top date spot."

  • "Villa-O has always been one of my favorite places to go for brunch ever since I was introduced to their chicken and waffles--which I'd argue may be the best in the area--the food always tastes fresh and service has always been prompt and friendly. The place is always alive and busy for brunch. At dinner time, Villa-O tends to be much quiter, well suited for a glass of wine with a friend or two to relax."

  • "The food at Villa O was okay. The best thing was an appetizer we had that was not not italian, but more asian in flavoring. Our server was nice, but brought dirty wine glasses to the table and then took quite a while to bring clean ones. After reading reviews we were expecting outstanding food, but it was just okay. Nothing over the top great, nothing that was horrible either. There weren't full so the delay in bringing the wine glasses seemed very unnecessary. The server said he was polishing them. We won't be returning there."

  • "Restaurant is replacing A/C units, so it is very warm in some spots. We had to move from the table where we were seated. The restaurant was not busy on a Friday night, which concerned us. But the food was delicious and ample. Our waiter did a nice job, but the support staff not so much! I think a good re-training on basic service is in order. By the time we left at 8:30, the restaurant was still mostly empty...odd for the Knox-Henderson area on a Friday night. The patio was pretty active and is apparently pet friendly."

  • "Way too noisy, and the food was so-so. Rather disappointed as the ambience is quite nice. Outdoor seating is great. Nice place to have a drink after work, especially if the weather is nice. Now, I have had dinner there in the past and it wasn't as noisy, and, as I recall, the food was better then."

  • "The waiter kept rushing us even though the restaurant was almost empty. We were clear that we were not in a hurry and he acted as though it were the lunch time rush. My lasagnette was only warm. The waiter never filled our wine glasses and we had to call him over to get another bottle. "

  • "We were the only ones in the restaurant and our server was horrible! Inattentive and aloof. The food, however, made up for the horrible service. You can never go wrong with the food at Villa-O"

  • "We have been going to villa-o since it opened. It has been a good place to go when we have 6-8 people. Good food and reasonably priced. Great atmosphere. This time there were 7 of us and not one meal was good. The waitress was mediocre at best"

  • "Went for Easter Brunch. Had challah french toast and ricotta blueberry pancakes with side of potatoes and turkey bacon. French toast was good-nothing amazing but good. Pancakes were way overcooked so very hard on the outside. Turkey bacon was as expected but the potatoes were delicious! They were seasoned with something and then there was a slight crispy outside so they were really tasty! Really nice large outdoor seating area! It was a beautiful day so even though the food was just "ok" we would definitely go back and recommend. Easter is always a hard one to judge a restaurant . Bottomless Mimosas and Bellinis were great!(not just juice!)"

  • "Great atmosphere, open to the outside, exciting A's vibrant patio scene, delicious fresh fishes and pasta. Server was not attentive and messed up the Bill. Don't let that stop you from enjoying this great restaurant."

  • "I just moved into this neighborhood and I wanted to treat my parents to a nice dinner. I've walked past Villa O several times and thought it seemed sufficiently fancy enough for the occasion. My first impression is the patio. That whole street is lined with patio restaurants and it provides a very pleasant atmosphere. We opted to eat inside, which was also very nice. I expected a little bit of snobbishness from the staff, but we found them all to be very friendly and accommodating. And the food was delicious. I'm not much of a food critic, so I won't try to elaborate, but it was all very good and we very much enjoyed ourselves."

  • "Was searching for something tasty on a recent work trip. This place did not disappoint. My cucumber salad and pizza were both delish and the lasagna my coworker had he was very happy with. Our server was very pleasant and attentive. Beautiful interior."

  • "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 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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "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!"

  • "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"

  • "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."

  • "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!"
