Lisa Vanderpump has created a sexy, stylish and romantic restaurant with a St. Tropez-like vibe with its large patio and its wonderous decor.
Rocco was a fantastic server! He was warm, clear, and knowledgeable! I absolutely LOVED the Chilean Seabass special, I didnt leave a bite behind. Compliments to chef! Also REALLY enjoyed Ken's signature dessert, recommended by Rocco! Thanks again Villa Blanca, cant wait til I return to LA. -MP
Very friendly but slow service ! They need to hire more wait staff. Food overly seasoned for
my taste .
Great as always
Amazing food, great service, decor needs a refresh.
I had a great time the wild mushroom and truffle pizza was amazing!! I could eat that every day. The oldies music they played was relaxing and went nice with the atmosphere. I would for sure eat there again next time I'm in the area.
Love this restaurant (usually). I come as an "irregular" regular. Both personally and for business dinners. Usually I rate it 5 stars across the board for service, food etc. This was my first disappointment. And I have to say that it was a real disappointment. I gave higher stars because of past experiences more than this one. The experience here is for my lunch time visit on 11/12/19. First, the food was good, but not amazing. Usually I LOVE it. I ordered something new (spicy tuna on crispy rice). A dish, I would rate as a 3. The tuna and sauce was really good but the rice tasted like a very deep fried tater tot, overwhelming the flavors of the rest of the dish. I was hoping for a more upscale treatment like searing of the rice on each side, giving crunch but preserving flavor instead of a deep fry. The pasta dish I ordered was very good. I could have forgiven the rice more if the service had been impeccable. The host was very friendly and helpful a 10 out of 10. But the server was a disappointment. He never smiled once and seemed to be in a very bad mood. As I departed I passed by him, made eye contact and politely said thank you and he ignored me. I found it strange, it came off as a snub, and can only interpret it as he thought I wasn't cool enough. I know I was not a difficult customer I did not complain about the rice dish or ask for anything special like substitutions. He actually brought food quickly to the table. But it was a noticeable demeanor throughout the meal that made the experience unpleasant for me. I am a well dressed polite customer but not one of the LA glitterati. This was the first time I've been made to feel like I didn't belong there. And my polite thank you being ignored on departure overwhelmed the positive experience of the decor, food (pasta), and impeccable host service.
Very pleasant and attentive staff
Our food was wonderful, service was great and ambience was perfect.
Food and service were great. I would defiantly come back and recommend to others.
Villa Blanca was super accommodating in seating us a
Lobster Ravioli was so-so. The 4 oz lobster meat was tough and not at all tender. The sauce was very good as was the wine and company.
Villa Blanca was a great Restaurant, being a fan of Real HouseWives of Beverly Hills and Visiting LA I was keen to go there, our waiter who’s name I forgot was excellent, he was friendly, cheerful, and genuine, he took some nice pictures of us, the food, location, ambience, and decor was great, as a bonus Lisa Vs daughter Pandora came in with her husband for dinner so I was excited about that, we are British so have high standards and this restaurant certainly met them. Thankyou.
We have make Villa Banca part of our annual trips to Beverly Hills and it's wonderful! Great service, great food and you must get a table outside and people watch!
The food was absolutely divine! Best pasta I’ve had since Italy. The service was fabulous, and the staff were so friendly and helpful! The decor and plating is simply beautiful. The price range is definitely affordable!!! Thanks so much Villa Blanca for making my first dining experience on Rodeo Dr. remarkable!
Had a very nice quiet and romantic dinner here. I was hoping to see Lisa Vanderpump there but she wasn’t but the food was fantastic. The truffle fries were the best I had in the USA. The black truffle bucatini was a bit on the salty side but I was pleased with everything I had and the waiter was very nice and on top of everything
Great customer service and pretty good food! Empty restaurant
Great attentive service! Lots of choices. Burgers (Kobe beef) were tasty. Lobster ravioli needed to be more delicate. We would return to try more items on the menu. Great pre- theater dining!
Excellent. We were not disappointed. Staff was very accommodating and their customer service was excellent
Beautiful and fun interiors, suitable for a reality tv star restaurant. Waitress, busboys and bartender all very friendly. Hostess was a bit nose in the air but so pretty. We had an early lunch and it was comfortable and fun. I would imagine that come a lunch or dinner rush the place would get a bit lively to loud. We did have a couple of tour vans stop by for a polite looksie and wave to the diners.
Great ambiance. Food was good. Service was a little slow but not too bad. Friendly servers.
I have been a long time customer since VB opened
Went the other nite & it was my bday choice. The
Restaurant was not that busy but the service was slow & inaccurate .. it was hard to get each thing
& our table did not get served at the same time so
We had to wait for the others to get their dinners ..
The food was good & ended up enjoying it but very
Annoying service .. crab cakes were too spicy but
Fish was very good. Mostly an ok evening but needs
Improvements for service...
EXCELLENT in EVERY category!! CAN'T WAIT to return!!
Loved this place. Food was fantastic and our waitress amazing!!
Our server was very nice and the food was great, I do think they are a bit over priced...$24 for a salad???
Villa Blanca was beautiful in the sense of a restaurant. The host was exceptional when we arrived, making us feel relaxed and calm straight away. We were shown to our table and the food and drinks were superb! The only problem we had which we didn’t mention but someone on a different table did was that the website stated happy hour was from 5-7. When we arrived we were told it was 4:30-6:30. Other than that the rest of the eveni was divine
The food didn’t have a taste to it, service was not good, and it took forever to get our food. I would not go back.
I'm willing to bear the lacking service because the food is so good and the atmosphere pleasant.
Fresh seafood, excellent wine and exceptional service.
Great for people watching. The restaurant needs a little TLC. Bathrooms need a remodel, and the overall restaurant needs have little holes filled and walls painted. Our server was very, very, very inattentive. Another server/food runner brought our entrees. The server never asked if we needed anything. We went to lunch at 1:45pm, and the place was not over crowded. We were disappointed about the service. Food was okay/good. ....I just really thought the food would be FANTASTIC, and it wasn't.
The restaurant was not busy. The service is super slow. Waited so long every step of the e way. To order, to get bread, to get the food, to get the check. They forgot some of our order. The waitress super cute and nice but very slow service. The food was not good. The chicken tasted old maybe frozen. Hamburger super dry also looked frozen. The steak was good but dry. Bolognese was ok. I was hoping to do my mom’s Birthday here but unfortunately I changed my mind. So disappointing because I love the look of this restaurant.
Service was lacking. Took a long time to be initially be greeted by our server. Then long wait for order to be taken. When food arrived, one dish was incorrect. Had to wait almost 10 minutes just to be able to grab our server and let her know we received the wrong item. Then wait for correct item to come.
The food was lovely as well as the setting. The only let down was the service. The staff were friendly but one of our party didn’t receive their main till after the rest of us had finished.
Worst food and service I’ve ever experienced
We were there for lunch and sat outside so noise level was traffic. The chopped salad is delicious. The servers are so nice and accommodating . I’ve never been there for dinner but it’s the perfect lunch spot !
Love this place!
Friendly servers and bussers. Food was flavorful and priced well. We had an amazing 2 hours of food, drinks and great conversation. The lobster ravioli was delicious. I’d definitely order that again. I do recommend the spicy ahi on sticky rice and the fig salad. We wanted something sweet and the carrot cake was perfect. Looking forward to dining there again.
We are big fans of Lisa Vanderpump and we loved the restaurant.... thank you
We have eaten at Villa Blance even before it was on the show. We were very disappointed this last visit. We sat outside by choice, but we were placed next to two drunk men from Germany. They were obnoxious and kept asking for more alcohol. Because our waiter and other staff were catering to them to keep them calm, we felt ignored. They never asked to refill my ice tea. I had to ask. It was only filled once from appetizers to the end of our dinner. It took a long time for them to take our order and no one offered us bread or asked if we needed anything. We were completely ignored, because they were giving their time and attention to the two drunk men. I give our waiter credit for keeping them calm and pacifying them. At least they didn’t do anything crazy. I feel that they should have been asked to leave. We were paying customers too. The food was good, but surprised there was no steak on the menu. My shrimp arribata only had 3 large shrimp in it. My husbands short rib was delicious. The fried artichoke hearts and burrata and prosciutto plate was also delicious. The food was good, but the service and the ambiance and flowers were not what is expected from Villa Blanca.
