For a unique breakfast experience that recalls New York City’s iconic past while offering distinctly of the moment meals with locally sourced ingredients, this is VILLARD.
The food is good - but not special. Paying more for the atmosphere/ambiance than an amazing Sunday brunch.
Beautiful restaurant and excellent food. We were disappointed in the service. We had to ask for refills and our waiter never came back after he took our order except to bring the check.
Special breakfast - very good!! My favorite N.Y. Breakfast
Food was way overpriced, but the setting was beautiful
The lobster Benedict had a whole lobster on at. Tail and two claws.
We had the most wonderful breakfast here. Gorgeous atmosphere, excellent service and the food was outstanding! It is so great to see that the historical building is preserved and kept up so that we can experience it. Fresh juice, eggs Benedict and billionaire bacon - all excellent! We will be back!
The service was at first attentive and rushed and then non existent. They should consider adding staff. At $100 for 2 for breakfast, I’m sure it’s in the budget.
Wonderful breakfast treat in the most beautiful restaurant in NYC. Gorgeous Christmas decorations too!
Best brunch in NYC
Amazing and Nicholas was awesome
Date Breakfast. Beautiful ambience, tasty food that’s well presented and the service was very attentive.
Just delicious!!! Beautiful ambiance and presentation.
This is a New York landmark and the venue is so beautiful specially around Christmas. The food was great (lobster benedict is highly recommended).The service however needs improvement. We ordered coffee and bread basket - They did not serve us a small plate for the bread. We waited for the waiter to stop by so we can ask for one but after waiting for a while, decided to use the saucer of my coffee cup. Also the timing of the entree was right after the bread basket. I wish there was a little more time for us to enjoy the bread with condiments and coffee but we had to start with our entree right away. Giving the place 3 stars, breaks my heart but management should focus on improving the service.
A delightful experience for breakfast. Exquisite food, presented well with superb staff.
I add higher expectations for the food quality. It was good but I wasn’t wowed for the type of hotel this is.
Nice restaurant.. very good location. Nice food and healthy options but the portions are small.
The food was incredible and was more than what I thought.
The staff was very friendly and helpful would definitely come back and would highly recommend.
Loved it, very impressed with service and food!
This was my birthday breakfast - we loved the ambiance- the berries were so fresh- and he made my americano to perfection!!
Very friendly. Wonderful service. A beautiful restaurant. The food was excellent.
Most overpriced breakfast I’ve ever had and I’m a New Yorker. Their slogan should be “You may get better, but you’ll never pay more!!!!”
Way way way overpriced and not at all good. Oversweeetened juices and stale granola at crazy prices do not a happy camper make ---- avoid
Very disappointing. Lackluster service. No smiles. I almost felt unwelcome.
The most elegant breakfast in Manhattan. Five star service and food. I will return.
Omelette was overcooked with no flavor. Overpriced.
Très sympa !
Service was horrible
Excellent venue and fantastic breakfast.
Started our NYC break off brilliantly.
Always wonderful! Always a treat!
The atmosphere, service, and food cannot be bested at Villard. Would definitely go back whenever in NYC
The room where we were seated was a good choice for our breakfast meeting because it was less noisy than being seated opposite the bar. The ambiance of the VILLARD is posh and I enjoyed being there. They can improve service with a friendlier greeting as some of the wait staff looked a bit bored.
Beautiful place and impeccable service, but $170 for two fruit plates, oatmeal and coffee was ridiculous.
We have dined at Villard many times. As soon as we sat down, the waiter filled our water glasses. We ordered coffee and I never took a sip of the water. Two others joined us for breakfast and their water glasses were also filled, but they also ordered coffee. Only one person drank out of the water glass. Imagine our shock when the bill came and we were charged for two bottles of Evian that we never ordered. The waiter insisted we ordered two bottles of Evian to the point of embarrassment for us in front of our guests.
We called the manager after we left, and he took off the two bottles of Evian from our bill (that we never ordered). Be careful of this. We assumed the water was tap water. The tap water from NYC is great btw. No need to order bottled water in the city!
The charge for each bottle of water was 12.00 btw. Unreal!
Great food and beyond. I took a friend there because she was a fan of the building and we really enjoyed the food as well as service staff was extremely attentive. Definitely suggest the Billionaire's Bacon to anyone who stops by the establishment
Food was great! Ambience was great! So much enjoyed our stay💓
The food is decent, but you can get a much better brunch at other places nearby. The prices are just absurd, even for midtown - $15 for an objectively tiny bowl of berries - not organic, not covered in gold, just regular mixed berries. $8 for a tea bag in a pot of hot water. $24 for a passable avocado toast that’s smaller than the superior avocado toast at The Smith. The servers try their best, but there is no quality of service that can make up for the insanity of the price/food ratio. Don’t waste your money.
Such a beautiful place to have a meal with friends or family. The food is always excellently prepared and service is exceptional.
