It’s a nice ambience, however, if you are looking for high end food then you need to look elsewhere. Outside of the tuna tartare which was tasty, the lobster ravioli was below average, the Caesar salad was bland and although the filet was done well, the accompaniments were average. Expected more out of this restaurant LVP.

Terrible experience. The ladies room did not have any toilet paper or paper towels and was dirty. I told the hostess and nothing was done about it. Waited 15 minutes and finally another patron of the restaurant went in search of tp and found some to share. The hostess and our waitress walked past me 5 times while I waited for them to replace to tp and was completely ignored. We ate our appetizer and asked for our check and left. The men’s room was just as bad according to my husband. He said it was dirty and the toilet didn’t work. Very disappointed as I made a point to go there on my business trip to LA.

Beyond horrible ... there were issues in the kitchen and food didn’t arrive for over an hour and when it arrived many of the dishes were wrong and others were inedible. Some of the party never got their food. Waitress never came back to table, manager was rude ...

My husband and I really enjoyed our time alone as we celebrated our Valentines dinner without our kiddos. The food, the music, the desert and treatment was simply perfect. We don't have the privilege to often spend this kind off money, but it was well worth it!!

Thank you.

Super upsetting VDay experience. When you set a reservation at 930, apparently it’s ok for the hostess to change it to 945, then 10pm BUT seats us at 1030. Isn’t that something? Unbelievable. And what’s even more shocking is that no one in management even apologized or offered anything complimentary for all the standing and waiting us and the other parties waiting. Shittest experience ever!! The food wasn’t even that great, it tasted like something you prepackaged. Of course to top it all off, after waiting so long to get seated our drinks came out wrong. There goes $261 WITH $39 gratuity. What a scam!

Valentines dinner
What a nightmare.
We waited 2 hours and left the restaurant.
We traveled from Huntington Beach
And we were totally disappointed with our service,
Bartenders were great. Our service from the time we sat to the time we had our appetizer was acceptable.
Wee were not prepared for the hour of no conversation with anyone. Strong start poor finish.
The devil is in the Details.
I’m out as far as any recommendations are concerned

Valentine’s Day was a disaster thanks to this place. Their service was so backed up, that not only our table was sitting in wait about 20 minutes in between visits from the staff, but every table we saw. We sat 45 minutes after our reservation. They applied an auto gratuity to each table, which was just an added torment to our grueling 2+hour experience. I will never go back there.

i was very happy with the service. Except that they put the tip in the bill. Which they told me about and I forgot. So i added an additional 50 dollars to the tip. I was ok with it but I would have appreciated a call saying that I may have made a mistake. The total bill was 230. the tip added in was 38 and I added 50 to that. I guess my mistake. Anyways. Other than that the steak was as usual amazing. Michael 3103652521

In town for business & to see Bruce Willis. And to attend some of the Oscar parties w/ my daughter.

met a friend for lunch.
The waiter said “ U know this is Beverly Hills”. have no idea why.
Young kid w/ red or strawberry blond hair. He was OK otherwise

I did like the ambiance & decor & food much better than the restaurant, Sur n West Hollywood. I sat n a chair that was missing it’s stuffing, so the waiter was nice enough to switch it. But your restaurant looks & feels like it needs a lot of help.

I was really bummed by this experience. We had an 8pm reservation and the restaurant wasn't busy at all. We sat outside which was pretty empty. Once we ordered our food it took over an hour to come. They kept forgetting to bring things like shared plates, water refills. They ended up comping a round of drinks and dessert without us even saying anything because they knew how long it was taking. All in it was about 2.5 hour evening for no reason. The food was so so, I've had better and wouldn't go back

Food and drinks were delicious! The service was appalling. The waiter took forever! The individuals providing us with our utensils and plates proceeded to essentially throw the plates on our table. Very disappointing.

The best Happy Hour in town. A great place for lunch or to start the night. Their food is consistently good. The Southern Chicken and the Fig salads are excellent as are just about all the appetizers. The staff are laid back, attentive and a lot of fun! Their wine list is also pretty extensive.

First time diners at Villa Blanca, celebrated my birthday (visiting from Colorado) with sister-in-law (from Manhattan Beach) and a cousin (visiting from Hawaii). We were greeted by a jovial hostess that displayed a warm hospitality. It was a beautiful sunny day with a light breeze, we were seated at the entrance to the patio off to the side of the hostess stand. It was comfortable and relaxing. Unfortunately, we did not get the waitresses name, she seemed to have been overwhelmed servicing the entire patio section. We three ordered cocktails and entrée salads. Cocktails arrived immediately, however it took some time for our salads to arrive. Requested for freshly cracked pepper, it took eternity for some one to arrive with a peppermill. Our waitress did not glance over let alone, check in on our table since our order was taken. We had to wave her over a few times to order cocktails. At the end of our meal, I received a birthday dessert , a scoop of vanilla ice cream in a glass tumbler with a lit candle sitting on a white platter with "Happy Birthday" written with chocolate...… how thoughtful! Needless to say, compliments to the Chef for creating such lovely delicious salads and for the charming welcoming presence of the hostess.

Yesterday evening my wife and mother-in-law celebrated my wife's birthday at Villa Blanca, which has always been our favorite restaurant. I ordered their burger medium well, and the meat was medium rare. I also ordered coffee, but the server never asked if I'd like a refill. After a 40 plus minute wait, I finally got up from the table to complain about the food not being served, my coffee not refilled, and a very noisy table which could easily be heard across the entire restaurant. Management did absolutely nothing. The experience was so bad that I cancelled our future Valentine's Day 8:00 p.m. dinner. Amazingly, the 'manager' on duty didn't even appear to care. There was a table of three people behind us trying to enjoy their meal, but clearly couldn't due to the loud 'cackling' laugh from one unruly woman at the offending table. This is one very poorly managed restaurant, and we will never return. Management literally refused to even lift a finger. They could have offered to seat us on the other side of the restaurant, and didn't. They could have politely asked the offending woman at the table to please calm down, and didn't. The only thing their 'manager' offered was to put my burger's meat back on the 'fire.'  The meat was bright red and much of it was inedible as a result. I told the inept manager that putting the burger back on the fire woukd mean that we woukd need to listen to the offending noisy table even longer.

Management at this restaurant is so bad that a person might suspect that they are working for a competitor to destroy the business.

There are many better places in Beverly Hills so celebrate special occasions. Think at least two or three times before dining at Villa Blanca until someone teplaced the management. Regular servers cannot earn a living wage at this restaurant which explains the high turnover. We had been dining at Villa Blanca an average of 2-3 times per month for nearly three years, and we didn't recognize any of the servers.

Went on a business lunch! Very cute. We had a little over an hour and while the restaurant wasn’t busy, we exceeded an hour. The food was great and the waiter was very nice, but I ended up getting my refill on my coffee 20 minutes after I asked and it came when he ran my card and was returning my check to sign. So, that part was pretty disappointing, but the food was great.

Our waiter told us there was an error with our order in the computer which meant he forgot to put the order in the system. We waited 1.5 hours for our food after they were closed! Literally we wanted to walk out and told them that and they didn’t even offer a discount for the poor service.

I'm a Bravo fan and just had to check this place out. We had a brunch reservation and for a Saturday early afternoon in BH, it was not crowded but hoppin enough. The restaurant is beautiful! The host (Nicholas?) was super personable, he seated us early and bonus points for being nice to my dog. We had a nice corner table outside, wonderful for people and car watching and seeing all the celebrity tour buses checking Villa Blanca out LOL. I had the Hamptons seafood salad and my husband had the Kobe beef burger. Delicious. We had dessert as suggested by our server - fudge chocolate cake that had extra berries and whipped cream. Food was awesome. Our server was quite busy but she was attentive enough. The interior of the place was very pretty, on my way in to the restroom the host asked me if everything was going ok. All in all a great experience. Staff was great. No LVP sighting but I enjoyed the meal, Merlot, service and ambience.
