Meh. Also, their website says happy hour goes until 7pm. It does not. It goes until 6:30. This restaurant is all right. Do yourself a favor and go to Il Fornaio or Wally’s around the corner.

I travel a lot. In my travels I try and taste a bloody Mary in any city that I go. Some are full of beef sticks and celery but I have to say at Villa Blanca I had one of the best tasting most basic bloody Marys in all of my travels. It was awesome

There are far better restaurants in LA. I'm sure this is simply a tourist trap based on who the owner is. The food was mediocre at best. We've had far better. The restaurant was half full all night, and yet they shoved us at a corner table next to the door and bar even though we had reservations. The worst part of all of it was that our server was simply on another planet. We couldn't find him for a vast majority of the evening and when he was in the restaurant, we couldn't get his attention. The only person available to us was the host. No matter what we asked for, we had to wait far longer than we should have. Bread, drinks, you name it, our server seemed to have forgotten about it. We had to ask him, the bus boys, the host. Does it really take 3 people to get bread or bring drinks? Or waiter forgot to tell us the specials, he served another table that was seated after us, etc etc... To top it off, it's stupidly expensive for a venue that only serves mediocre food. With all the great restaurants in Los Angeles, give this one a miss. There is simply no reason to go.

This restaurant is so pretty and cozy. The atmosphere was relaxing and romantic. We made dinner reservations, but probably didn't need to- it wasn't busy, and there seemed to be only one waitress on the floor. Service was efficient, but a bit rushed. The food was pretty standard Italian/Mediterranean, and very good. If you want to sit outside and people-watch, they have a decent patio. Definitely worth a visit.

This place was lovely although a touch cold as we were sat in line of the air con grill by the antique feather.
Service was excellent and food was very very good. Had beef carpaccio followed by the ribs which were amazing.
Will definitely return if in Beverly Hills again.

When we arrived the person at the desk, it looked like he may have been a manager, put our menus on the table and said, there’s where our sitting. I guess he thought he was to good to sit us. Other than that, the food was good and our waiter was great.

The food was really great and the waiter was very nice. I didn't rate a 5 because my husband and I waited to be seated for a very long time. The restaurant didn't seem busy (no one sitting inside and only a few full tables on the patio). There were several staff up front and no one acknowledged us at all - to the point that we almost left. However, we didn't leave and everything from that point on was great.

The overall experience was great. With it being a bit of a celebrity owned restaurant you are never sure if it is going to be worth it meal wise or if the experience is based more on being able to say you’ve eaten there. But I can honestly say the food and service was great and would definitely go back

Our waiter, Rocco , is the best! He was funny and charming. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and wines. We arrived just before 6pm, and guess what?! It was happy hour with 50% off every wine! We shared the fig salad with blue cheese and arugula and the branzino. The salad was fresh and delicious and the figs were fresh, not dried. Branzino was simply prepared with salt, pepper and fresh herbs, grilled and deboned. It was served on a bed of lentils and fresh asparagus. Fish was moist, tender and completely deboned with fantastic flavor. We all shared some sticky, decadent desert which Rocco recommended. Along with Villa Blanca’s delicious coffee, it was the perfect ending to a lovely meal.

Our server Rocco was the best server I could’ve asked for. If it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t return. Although the experience was great...I can not say the same for the food. $180 lunch for the two of us. My daughter got the sea food pasta special and I got the filet and lobster special. Sauce on the steak was way over powering I couldn’t taste the meat. The red sauce used on my daughters plate tasted like what she said “spaghetti or spaghetti-o’s” where it ruined the taste of all the seafood. The only way I think I would return is if Lisa Vanderpump was there and I got a chance to meet her. If it wasn’t for our server Rocco, I wouldn’t even consider that. Felt disappointed for spending $180 for lunch my daughter and I didn’t like the food.

Was wonderful experience. Decor is great. All the staff was wonderful. Hostess took a bunch of pictures for us. We had mozzarella, prosciutto and basil sandwhich, crispy rice tuna and salmon entree. Each fantastic. Also had the Calimari which breading was light and crispy. The calamari itself was not chewy but was a bit dry. Flavored the dish though great. Portions for everything was large. And the atmosphere. Simply stunning. We were there on a weekday at lunch so was not crowded. Would recommend and will be back.

I usually love Villa Blanca, however this time, my husband's steak was way overcooked; he requested medium rare and it was very medium to almost well. He sent it back, but that was the last filet we were told - Father's Day and it was only 7:00p. Disappointing and the server was not very attentive this time nor personable. Not what I've come expect.
