Food is too elaborate to be good, and service is too precious. It is an interesting place but they need to tone their preciousness down. Otherwise a little too pretentious.
Obviously they are trying but are not professional. Thinking they can be polite servers & try creative dishes. Neither successful! Won’t go back.
Great dinner and catching up with a friend. Stayed for hours and the food and service were wonderful.
superb and inventive food. Great service. cozy and lovely decor.
Lovely restaurant. We happened upon this gem and strongly recommend it. The food is outstanding.
A small but extremely creative and super tasty menu. Best meal I have had in a while. Well done!
If you're a carnivore, this is the romantic, quaint place for you. If you're a vegetarian, there is not much to choose from, basically, one option. Fabulous drinks and the service was wonderful.
Always an outstanding experience. Spectacular food from seasonal produce, served by attentive, knowledgeable and friendly staff.
Very good food , nice decor, and friendly service.
One of the best restaurants in NYC. Consistently and memorably delicious with a thoughtful staff and lovely ambience.
The food is great but the service needs improvement
Wonderful quaint restaurant with attentive staff and wonderful fusion of different ingredients. The dessert was one of the best I have had. The ambiance is clean and crisp and not too crowded with seating and bar well designed. Will come back. Strongly recommend!
Food is excellent. Memorable. Space is intimate. Service impeccable. Just go!!
I love the ambiance of this restaurant - modern, industrial and cozy. It is located close to Union Square but kind of hidden, so great space to enjoy the conversation with someone. Food is a little bit too creative for me, but voluminous as well. Maybe will return to try another menu.
Cozy neighborhood gem - full of local ingredients - vegetarian friendly
Can't believe I've never been here before and I live right in the neighborhood! Came here for a casual catch-up dinner. The place is very cute and cozy
Food: we had the brussels sprouts and salad. I had the pappardelle and he had the halibut. Our server noted that the menu was set to change in a few weeks (they have seasonal menus). It was all very fresh and delicious and felt really healthy and clean.
The service was amazing - not too pushy and there to answer questions.
Can't wait to go back!
I was surprised when I saw that this place got slightly better ratings than Gotham Bar and Grill across the street. But, having been to both, I understand why. The food is really, really good. The wait staff excellent. While it’s not inexpensive, it’s less pricey than Gotham. It’s completely different, though, with maybe 50 seats vs probably 150 at Gotham. It’s also fairly minimalist. Make no mistake, though, Villanelle is excellent.
So good. We keep returning because it's so memorable, and fresh and delicious.
This is the second time I have dined at this restaurant. Both times have been outstanding! The servers are very attentive and the food is amazing. I will definitely be going back a third time.
Everything about the experience was lovely. Service was gracious and friendly. Everything we ate was exceptional. We will definitely return there and will recommend to friends.
Loved all about this place! Have been there twice now and can’t wait to go again!!!
had Pre-fixe dinner with a good friend for a special occasion. the ambiance was exquisite clean interior design, attentive service, and playful modern menu. my favorite per usual is the grilled octopus with curry - it's bright, fresh, a hint of char & a slightly warm spice to the curry that is amplified by an addition of finger lime. dessert was phenomenal with the chocolate mousse, salted caramel, & honey icecream. I love villanelle and I plan on visiting again to try other entrees.
I cannot wait to go back
Great food. Very helpful service. Nice quiet atmosphere. Wasn’t rushed. Great placcr to bring a date.
Superb food and cocktails!
Delicious, interesting food, excellent service--we definitely plan to return. Especially highly recommend the brussel sprouts, halibut, and frozen chocolate mousse dessert (all on the prix fixe menu, which is a good deal).
Loved it - nice atmosphere, great service and food!
Food was good enough but TINY portions. Service was entirely inattentive and disinterested. The entire experience was “meh” at best.
Consistently delicious I only wish the portions were a little bit larger
Food was excellent. A real hidden gem in NYc
We had a wonderful family dinner at Villanelle. The food was amazing and the service was wonderful. Such an enjoyable experience.
One of the best meals I’ve had in NY in a long time. Delicious!!
My second visit in one week. Perfection.
Astonishingly good. This is the kind of delicate, inventive haute New American to which others can only aspire. Chef is on fire!
exceptional food, beautifully presented. Portions are small, but easily shared
Really serene space for brunch, with delicious, locally sourced options---notably, with a few that suited, and they were willing to tweak for, Whole 30.
Great food and nice ambiance. A good choice for sophisticated mature diners.
Had the loveliest brunch here on a quiet, rainy Sunday morning. The decor is tasteful and appealing, the food was solid, and the service was companionable and attentive. Delicious tea. Tucked unobtrusively in the middle of the block, a real neighborhood gem.
The consistently extraordinary flavors, fun seasonal cocktails (and mocktails), and a lovely staff and ambience make this one of our favorite destinations. Highly recommend.
What a great find this restaurant was during the Memorial Day Weekend. Our Server, Christopher, was outstanding. He guided us through the Menu and was attentive to our needs as well as being personable. We went with the Prix Fixe Dinner choice as it was of great value. Food was beautifully presented and landed up being delicious choices; Spring Peas, Brussels Sprouts, Halibut and Chicken. Don't forget to order the rolls. I loved the Torrija for dessert. The interior space is beautifully decorated and the mood music is perfect. For a quieter time, dine early otherwise it becomes energetic as the night wears on.
Exquisite food extremely carefully and creatively prepared but slow to be served.
This chef is GREAT but needs helpers to move things along.
