Lisa Vanderpump has created a sexy, stylish and romantic restaurant with a St. Tropez-like vibe with its large patio and its wonderous decor.
My wife and I went for brunch and were delighted with the entire experience. The wait staff were very friendly and the food was great in flavor. My wife loved all the decor in the restaurant. Very happy with our visit.
Food, service and value exceptional. Only complaint was the music was too loud and very hard to carry on a conversation. Would definitely recommend and will return a gain
First time there. Loved the food and the ambiance.
Wonderful food, great atmosphere!
The food was sub par and over priced. It’s obvious this restaurant relies on fans of the show to generate business. I doubt many people are returning customers. Our waiter was amazing though!
We've been once before and I had the best salad, to the point of dreaming about it for days. Not so on this visit, nothing special and chicken was super dry. Same for the other dishes ordered.
It was great! Service was great excellent!!
Food was a big disappointment! We ordered two of the most expensive items on entree menu, fresh catch and short rib. The short rib sauce reminded me of chef boyardee from when I was a kid(not a good memory) and my fresh catch was an over cooked tiny filet of fish. I went in with average expectations for the food and still left disappointed. Would not recommend.
Our server was very friendly and professional. He gave us good recommendation for food. We especially enjoyed Ken’s Sticky Toffee Pudding!
Service was good.
Music was a little too loud.
Food was very good, but the specials were pricey.
Amazing menu and friendly staff. We had great service. We love the location
I had a friend visiting from Hong Kong who was really excited to experience Villa Blanca.
However, the entire experience from the run down interior to the indifference service made
this a rather sad afternoon. The banquette we were seated on had grease stains and backwards
cushions with zippers on the outside and the service made us feel like an afterthought. The food was okay, but nothing to rush back for. Lisa Vanderpump needs to put some creativity into this place and bring it up to date!
Server never brought us our bread. We asked Three times.
Service was awful!!
Restaurant looked old and tired!!
Fresh flowers gone. Tacky plastic arrangement at our table
Took friends there for the Used to be beautiful environment
Vanderpumbs need to let Villa Blanca go or spend time and money in it!!
My server wasn't very attentive.
The space is small and crowded.
My guest's chair was repeatedly bumped by staff and other guests all throughout our meal.
They surprised us with a free happy anniversary dessert which was lovely!
It was over rated. The food was not that great. Our table wobbled and they couldn't fix it.
I loved everything about it. I thought the room was a little small, but I liked how intimate the feel was. I’m from Australia where we are spoilt with great food and Villa Blanca was up there with one of my favourite restaurants.
always a great time here , starting with the hostess to the bus people. never feel rushed and always enjoy ourselves.
I took two friends for their birthday celebration
and we enjoyed ourselves and the meal.
Fun! Great good too.
Disappointing. I expected a much more fine tuned experience for the price. Went to the bathroom, there was a waitress putting on lipstick and no toilet paper. The restaurant was almost empty and they sat us right next to the hostess stand by the front door. Overall the place looks tired; plastic flowers on the tables.
Overall a great dining experience. The food was superb, staff was on Point , ambience was acceptable however attention to the bathroom was lacking in fact it was dismal. Nothing worst then going to a bathroom that has no hand towels.
Horrible horrible service. Didn’t get seated until 45 minutes after our reservation. The manager blamed it on Opentable. The food was decent but we were already upset so there’s that. The hostess was the best part of our experience, she was very apologetic and sweet. Save your money and go somewhere else, not worth the frustration.
The table we were given was way too squished and I was repeatedly bumped by staff members to get to other tables. Prior to going I had the “big pinky” at SUR and it was amazing but at Villa Blanca is was mediocre at best and basically just soda. The meal I got was the pesto pasta one and it was way under seasoned, missing the cherry tomatoes, and needed so much salt and pepper to make it worth eating. Our waitress was clearly overwhelmed and was barely attentive, especially because we are young adults. Overall, pretty disappointed in how the night went. I wouldn’t say you shouldn’t go to Villa Blanca I would just make sure you are aware that these things were a common theme through the night and that SUR is the better choice if you are debating which to go to.
Ambience was nice. Food was okay. Service was subpar.
I think it was fun to visit Villa Blanca knowing that it was a Vanderpump restaurant, however I thought my entree and my friends entrees were less than par. When we asked our waiter for recommendations, he could hardly recommend a thing as he'd say, "Eh, that's not too good" , " The Truffle Pasta is pretty boring", "The Chicken Milanese is just a breaded chicken breast". Eventually I decided on the Roasted Jidori Chicken and it was extremely dry (and I actually tend to like dryer chicken), the veggies weren't cooked enough and they all tasted too crunchy which made them hard to eat alongside the chicken. Also, I wasn't drinking but my friends had to send their drinks back twice. Apparently our waiter tried to make the drinks the second time as the bartender was busy, but he mixed it in a shaker that just had an Espresso Martini, which made for a very weird tasting Spicy Margarita. All in all it was fun to visit but I wouldn't recommend it to friends.
My wife and I were here for our “baby moon” and she’s always wanted to try Villa Blanca out. The server was amazing! The lamb chops were to die for! Great experience overall and next time I’m in LA, I’m definitely coming back. Thank you so much and please keep it up! 10/10 all day long.
Everything was awesome! We came here to experience Lisa’s beautiful restaurant all the way from Texas. It did not disappoint. We loved every bit of it!
Everything I expected it to be! Love The Big Pinky cocktail.
Dan was a delight, love him.
I’ve been eating here for years, it’s the worst meal i ever had there
Rocky was such a great server and madd my sons birthday celebration fantastic....
Great catch of the day special and buratta appetizer! The cocktails were delicious and unique! We loved it!
The staff was great, especially Giovanni our bartender and Rocco our waiter. We were lucky to sit at the bar our favorite place to dine and the food was very good. Our one disappointment was that the bar stools were very uncomfortable. Looking around at all of the cushioned couches and chairs the hard steel stools did not fit in.
I was so disappointed with the food. I was looking forward to dining here and especially trying the Crispy Rice Tuna Tar Tar? And it was not what I expected. Then my son ordered the Milanese? It was dry and lacked flavor. I ordered the special which was the Branzino, and that was also dry. I have been to Vanderpump’s other restaurants and the were good, however Villa Blanco was awful!!! Very disappointing.
Very nice atmosphere, presentation of food was nice, Is this a real Italian Restaurant? I think it has more of European flavor. Not southern Italy or northern. I ordered paella which is not from Italy and was cooked with to much pepper. To many Restaurant’s in the area to pick from.
location is great. walking distance to multiple shopping stores.
Elegant... the food was very good... it was a rainy day and yet, the restaurant was crowded. It was a testament to the quality of the venue.
Loved this little quaint place. Would definitely go back
It was GREAT!!!
