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.
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.
If a restaurant is good, my partner and I will usually get dessert somewhere else. If our meal was great we’ll share one dessert and if it was exceptional we’ll order two. Somehow we enjoyed three desserts. All of them were amazing - as was everything else we ordered.
We have visited twice and both times were excellent. It’s well priced and they have an excellent wine list.
This is one of the best restaurants in the city.
Very knowledgeable waiter that was helpful with wine selection. He even introduced us to a style of digestif we had never heard of before that was delicious! I look be this place.
First time here - very creative and delicious food, interesting cocktails. A fun Village restaurant. Service was very friendly but a bit confused - they brought the wrong entrée to one of us - but I'd still recommend.
This is my fourth time here - I love it!
Exceptional food, great service, warm ambiance.
Based on the reviews, my expectations were already maybe unrealistically high, but after the meal..I found them not high enough!!
The meal, service and atmosphere were all wonderful, but, in addition to that, the desserts were... out of control! Clean, simple, unusual combinations and perhaps some of the most delicious ones ever!!Well worth the prixe fix to have a 3 course meal. I have been spreading the word- and, the website- ever since!!!
Thanks so much for this positive experience 😀😁
A truly excellent Village spot. We were there for a late lunch so it was quiet but tables are well spaced so seems it would be fine with fewer people . Food was creative and delicious. Service was excellent and friendly. Definitely recommend!
Third time eating here. Food is consistently outstanding. Creative but in the service of deliciousness. Level of service has declined as has number of diners. Don’t know why this place hasn’t taken off.
Yet another great meal. Everything is so fresh and flavorful.
Delightful brunch. Lovely ambience and everything tasted great.
very good in every respect interesting menu and friendly , knowledgable service.
I attended Villanelle for a birthday brunch on Sunday, and I was delighted at the options offered. I usually never see a grilled cheese on a brunch menu, and it was just what I needed after a night of libations. Speaking of, I ordered a Mezcal cocktail that was not available, but the bartender made quick work of making a different version of it for me. It was exactly what I wanted!
The brussels sprout hash here is something I occasionally dream of, and this visit it didn't disappoint. I am so happy to have fresh options for brunch (the fruit and yogurt were also exactly what I needed), to go along with that bread and cheese I so often crave on a Sunday. Thanks, Villanelle!
Second time here. We had the spring peas and asparagus as starters and as main courses the Amish chicken and octopus. All was sensational. The waiter was appropriately attentive without being in our face. All in all a splendid experience. Can't wait to go back.
This is a special place. Fresh, creative food combined with friendly, efficient service in one of the more pleasant, warm and inviting dining rooms you'll find in NYC. Great wine list too. We will be back.
I love this restaurant. Simple decor yet elegant. Has a neighborhood feel with amazing food that elevates every ingredient. Great service. Friendly owners who are always there. Had dinner Saturday night- absolutely delicious and a welcome respite after a hectic week. Thank you Villanelle!
This is my new go-to spot for lunch in the Village. It's an oasis just off Union Square - quiet, elegant and charming, a perfect spot for meet ups, or for grabbing an hour by yourself. The prix fixe is a great deal - 2 fresh, delicious courses for $35. There a few "express" options too. Love it!
