Lisa Vanderpump has created a sexy, stylish and romantic restaurant with a St. Tropez-like vibe with its large patio and its wonderous decor.
We were seated right away and had a great table with a view of the whole restaurant. Rocco our server was also great! He was personable and gave us a photo shoot to make sure we had a good pic. I had the bologna pasta and my fiancé had the seafood pasta special. Both were really good and satisfying! I would definitely recommend!
Came here with my mom for her birthday. Great good at a reasonable price. Chic and elegant ambiance. Will be back!
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.
The restaurant is beautiful. The food was moderately priced and there was a good menu selection. The service was slow and our server spent most of his time at the food ordering system. The restaurant seemed understaffed. The pasta dishes were good but my salad was salty.
Fabulous food. Fabulous service. Could not fault a thing. Booked our table a month before as visiting on vacation from the UK & we would definitely return. Our server was ‘Pilar’ and we want to thank her for making our evening wonderful.
Lovely service and staff. My chicken for my salad was a little dry though. Cocktails were refreshing and the truffles fries were delicious!
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
Went for brunch. Was very amazed with the portion size. Had crispy rice roll as an appetizer. Food was delicious.
Loved the food and the service. Will definitely come back.
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.
Amazing !! Customer service was really good. The whole staff was very attentive. Food was so delicious. By far the best food I have tried. Ambiance was very nice and calm. Will come again soon .
The few times I’ve been was very good as we’ve been ordering fish & salad . Today . I ordered the arrabbiata pasta with prawn & NOT good at all. The prawn is rubbery. penne pasta is bland & the sauce is so plain like it came from a can . ☹️😞
Love all of Lisa’s restaurants, but villa Blanca is my fav! Food is outstanding and drinks are PERFECT....
The service was terrible and unapologetic.
Excellent value for the money!
Highly recommended for lunch.
Anxious to have dinner there the next time we're in town.
Great service, awesome food and lovely setting
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.
Waitress was great. The food was awesome. Best meal I had all week. If I lived in the area, I would probably eat there a few times a week
Beautiful day in a beautiful restaurant.
All waiters were extremely friendly, even when they weren’t assigned to my table. My waiter (Ed) was very knowledgeable RE the menu, and sightseeing recommendations. Ambience and decorations were perfect.
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.
We loved Villa Blanca, it was all wonderful- the décor, the service and the food! The beef carpaccio was amazing. Our pasta dishes were wonderful and the desserts sinful!
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.
Really enjoyed it. The half price wine before 6:30 pm is a great idea.
Food was great!
Outstanding meal, great service and a wonderful atmosphere.
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
Always delightful. Never disappointed. Food is amazing. Perfect location. So many good memories and wonderful service.
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.
We always have a great time at Villa Blanca, whether it's for happy hour or a romantic dinner. The staff are great and friendly and the food is always spot on. Keep it up!
I don’t recomend!
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.
It was a surprise dinner for my sister's 29th birthday who was visiting LA from New Zealand. Food and service were beyond our expectations. We will definitely come back to celebrate our special occasions.
Have the Caesar salad and the tuna appetizers! Excellent! The room decor is beautiful too!
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.
Father’s Day so I think service was a little slow. But over enjoyed our visit
I brought my mom here for her 50th birthday and it was perfect. The staff was super nice and the food was amazing. We’re definitely coming back again soon!
