Given this restaurant's location and fame (Villard House), I for sure didn't expect them to leave a dirty spoon covered in chocolate on the table. I almost used it to mix my coffee without noticing! Service was unprofessional; rushed us to pay/leave. Such a shame as this is a beautiful location.

This place is an upscale restaurant for breakfast and diner
The food is good but the size are really tiny for the price and I am French so I am looking for American super size dish
It’s just that sometimes the presentation makes it look like your food is lost in a massive plate and it’s not good even less for an American breakfast
Servie is not up to the task they interrupt your business breakfast by coming too often and cutting you in the middle of a sentence also they take your plate before everyone is done it’s really not following proper manners and its pains me
At the end I would say you should go if you have 40 dollars to spend for breakfast but don’t expect too much food is good but not amazing and it’s more for the decor than anything else that you pay that much

Service both mornings we ate here was atrocious. They are extremely unfriendly at this restaurant. It is a gorgeous spot but they need to hire a whole new staff. The french toast was worth it!

The servers are lovely, if a bit too hovering for my taste. (I like to feel like I am eating alone and people magically appear. My table was fine with it.) Food was fine -
not the best meal ever and $250 for brunch for three is a bit excessive, but you pay for the ambiance and history. My only real issue is that they really need to work on logistics. We were seated 20 minutes late because of the "switch" from breakfast to brunch and there were a dozen empty tables not cleared. Either get some assistance or close at 11:30 and reopen at 12 for brunch. If you are in a hurry, not the place for you.

Food was very good. Service was really poor -- slow (had to ask for water twice) for instance. Prices are really high for what you get -- small bowl of greek yogurt for $12. Really? I really object to having services charges included on the check for small parties (we were 3 people). I find that really presumptuous. Not going back. Lots of hard surfaces in the main room so sound bounced around. They need curtains/soft wall coverings.

Ate breakfast here because I was staying at the NY Palace. My husband and I enjoyed breakfast very much. The menu has a variety of breakfast options albeit a bit pricy but it's NYC. The dining room is incredible if you have an appreciate for handcrafted design and architecture. The ambiance is quiet and perfect for morning cappuccino. The wait staff, particularly Melissa, was very friendly and seemed happy to cater to us. Being my husbands birthday, they even threw in a special treat! One day we will be back!

The food was good. I had bacon, eggs, and potatoes. Small portions and definitely not worth $36. The service was absolutely dreadful. The server didn't even come around to ask how the food was and didn't even bring water. They charge 15% gratuity automatically so that could explain the horrible service. There are so many other better places in the city to try.

Horrible food. I asked for a medium cooked steak. I got a rare steak that was so tough it was like chewing on rawhide. The servers were weirdly rushing and there was a general atmosphere of panic even thought he restaurant was empty. The prices are extremely high for the poor quality of the food and service. At the end they couldn’t get their system to work and after 30 minutes and many managers coming going we were finally able to pay and leave.

The food was exceptional and the setting was very charming and impressive. The service was unfriendly, erratic and unprofessional. They lacked common etiquette for serving plates, refreshing beverages and removing excess plates. They were asked to remove excess glasses and plates and only walked away with a few and never came back.

This was a disappointing experience.
The table and setting was nice but the service was poor.
Our waiter was inattentive.
Food was COLD.
Would like to recommend to others but can not do that.
Given what we paid for 4 people to brunch , the villlard really needs to up their game.

We were seated about 2 feet from the service station. Lots of noise and traffic by the waiters. Waiter asked how my meal was as an after thought, as he was pulling a jug of milk out of the fridge.

Also ordered Eggs Benedict and the yolks were hard. If the chef can’t correctly poach an egg he should be defrocked of his chefs hat.

Cancelling tomorrow’s reservation.

Disappointing. It's in the old Le Cirque space which is nice, but the food was just ok (I make a far better omelette), the service was slow and awkward (asked for water 3 times before finally getting it and was never refilled), and the cost was absurd - $125 with tip for two.

The Villard has great ambiance thanks to a spectacular space. The food was good, but not great and certainly not with respect to the price point. The wait staff were abrupt and more concerned with moving you through the meal than providing service. The food, with respect to the Eggs Benedict, at least, was presented well, but not executed well. The poached egg was well under done, although the muffin was well done, the ham sized right, and the hollandaise with the right balance.

This restaurant is located inside the Lotte Palace Hotel and the room is part of the old Villard mansion. It is worth going there once for breakfast just for the surroundings, but the prices are a bit steep for breakfast, even though the food is well prepared and service is good. 15% service is automatically added to the bill, which I personally dislike, though I usually tip closer to 20% when dining, but not here.
