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.
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.
Our waitress was wonderful. She was great and very kind! The food and atmosphere was also very pleasant.
Ambiance parfaite !
Nourriture excellente et bonne présentation.
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.
Had a wonderful experience overall! The Manager Chris Antonacci made my birthday brunch even more special. Thank you for such great costumer service!
Service was excellent, the architecture of the interior was breathtaking. Loved it!!!
Wish they served more than just breakfast. The hotel needs a lunch and dinner restaurant badly!
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.
