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!!!!”

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

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.

Beautiful setting, below par service and average (at best) brunch fare at an exorbitant price. It was the polar opposite of value and I could not be forced upon to recommend it.

VILLARD restaurant is located in one of the most beautiful interiors in NYC — a Gilded Age mansion from the 1880s. You are surrounded by painted murals and carved and gilt decoration by some of the best American artists of the late 19th. Prices are Sky High but the food and experience was truly superior. My wife and I had the Lemon Marscapone pancakes and Avocado toast — beautiful presentations and incredibly delicious. A MUST to celebrate a special occasion and make it truly special.

The restaurant was empty, except for my party and another table of two people. It was strange for a location that is so ideal, and for a restaurant that comes with such fanfare - particularly because it was such a beautiful day. I asked our waiter about the lack of customers and he said it was unusual.

The staff was courteous, the food was good overall, and the decor is truly one of a kind. The place has such potential, but we did not see it in any grandeur because of the lack of an atmosphere.

Extraordinarily overpriced, extremely low product for the price. Purely paying for the ambiance and venue, which is high end. $9 coffee and $16 grapefruit is excessive.

Food was unremarkable. No better than what you would find at an upscale diner. The service was ridiculously bad. We waited 20 minutes after sitting before we received water and coffee. When we later could not find our waiter, we asked another waiter for the check. He literally lifted his palms and said "Not My Job". The hostess was lovely and apologetic, and the room itself is beautiful. All in all, you would be better off avoiding this over-priced, poorly staffed tourist trap.

The room was dark due to the limited windows and dark wood paneling. The noise level was okay; I would have preferred a quieter room.
