Brought 3 friends who had never been to Villanelle. All thought food, atmosphere and service were terrific. Two live in the neighborhood and will be back. Food and presentation were both exceptional. A bit pricy, but utterly worth it.

Bravo to the chef!! Every meal here is a delight, and the Brussel sprouts and beet salad are out of this world. That may also have been the very best grilled octopus I've had since I was last in Greece.

Service was overly informative--to the point of needing to say, "that's enough editorializing of the menu" but the food was good. Opening plate was very small for price but good. Entree was more reasonably priced and better. Cocktails were very good.

Clean lines and clean place! Think lunch selections were a bit on the heavy side for summer.
Very good service and pleasant atmosphere. Will definitely go again.
A "winner" for the neighborhood - not kitschy, not cheap - definitely more sophisticated.

The food was very good, but for the price the portions were small. We didn't like the oysters. The roasted squid was fantastic

This place is a knock out. It works on all levels. Gorgeous room, great food, excellent staff. And it's an interestingly different menu. I look forward to returning and making my way through the menu.

Amazing service and food! Brussels sprouts was delicious with really high quality of ingredients and the Pork belly was fantastic with honey gastrique on Swiss chard. Will definitely came back with other guest. I will say that Villanelle’s is a wonderful place to enjoy a great meal with your loved ones.

Super food in a wonderful location. So delicious! Chicken was fantastic. Panna Cotta with preaches was spectacular. Nice wine list. Not too many choices, but everything is delicious.

Excellent inventive food and attentive and thoughtful service. Very accommodating to modify dishes for gluten-free dietary restriction.
We shared the watermelon/grilled oyster and the dandelion and burrata salads to start. The former was light and fresh tasting on a hot summer night and the latter was delicious and savory. We then had grilled octopus, one of the best renditions of that I’ve tasted and the cavatelli. We thought we may have under-ordered when the latter dishes came out due the sizes, but were more than satisfied.
We finished with a couple of grilled peach and yogurt pana cottas, a perfect ending to the meal.

Had a fabulous meal at Villanelle. The summery watermelon/oyster appetizer was unexpectedly refreshing and tasty. Love the duck dumplings. So flavorful. Our server was terrific, answered all of our questions and suggested some great wines for our dishes. My husband loves the cocktails here. This place is a gem. Go!

Service was really horrible. We had six people and they kept bringing out five pieces, didn’t listen to our questions or inform us on the size of the dishes even when we asked.

Lovely restaurant. My only recommendation is that there would be a larger selection of entrees with more vegetarian selections because I have many vegetarian friends whom I can’t take to your restaurant. Respectfully, Janet Damon
