About

Villon is a sophisticated all-day restaurant and lounge at San Francisco Proper Hotel. We serve creative contemporary American cuisine, rich with unexpected twists and inspiration drawn from San Francisco’s bountiful culinary culture, seasonal ingredients, and global influences. Our “7x7” anthology of 49 original and classic cocktails by BVHospitality pays playful homage to the city’s seven-by-seven-mile area, while a thoughtfully curated wine and beer list spotlights regional California and international selections. Situated in the restored historic lobby of a nearly 100-year-old building, Villon spans three distinct spaces by world-renowned interior designer Kelly Wearstler.

A real surprise in an otherwise sketchy neighborhood. A great find for theater dining.

The Rolls! Make sure you order the Hawaiian Rolls. The restaurant is in the very cool Proper Hotel. We went for a pre theatre meal. We really enjoyed our meal from start to finish. The food was inventive and presented with an artistic flair. The desserts are a amazing. It’s a quick walk to the Orpheum. I’m really happy we tried it.

We absolutely loved our meal the service and the gorgeous interior of this amazing restaurant. The host could not have been more accommodating… He made us feel like royalty including showing us up to the roof deck bar before dinner. This is an absolute must try spot in San Francisco

Great restaurant with excellent food but in a really bad part of town it seems. Just request a taxi from the doorman to avoid the crazy homeless people after your dinner on the streets around the restaurant.

Very limited menu, inside of a hotel lobby that doesn’t feel separated at all. Felt like it was supposed to be a fast paced meal but for the price point it should have been more of a dining experience. The decor and lobby area are beautifully decorated but for the people who want a true SF dining experience, there are many options better than this.

The setting, service, drinks, and food are all wonderful.
Let’s start with the setting. The Proper hotel is a great addition to s neighborhood that is still very sketchy. But when you walk inside, you enter a decorative world that is first rate. Service is perfect, from the greeting to the wait staff. The drinks menu is worth a visit just for that. The menu is small and has just enough selection to make it easy to pick from the offerings.
Enough said. Just go there.

They were totally disorganized and not ready for the brunch crowd. Drinks arrived well after we were done with the food - which I would describe as fine but not special. Brand new server was lovely and tried to make up for things. My second time being there and neither time did I feel they had it together.

My wife and I were on our way home from winter in the desert and spent 1 night in San Fran. We found Villon on Opentable so decided to try. It was the best restaurant overall that we had been to over the winter months and do frequent out regularly. From the time we arrived to the time we left the service and food quality were off the end! Special thanks to Salvador for his attention to detail with everything!

It was amazing. Absolutely loved the food and the restaurant is beautiful. The pancakes and egg white frittata were delicious. We also had dinner the night before and which was also outstanding. The octopus appetizer was awesome. The bread is ridiculously good. The pork shoulder and the steak were delicious. Service was terrific. Can’t wait to return.

The cocktails were delicious, but I'd say that was all that stood out at Villon. 5 shared plates, (one of them rolls w/ butter) and 3 cocktails came to about $250. Hard to like anything with that price tag.

If I went back, I'd have an order of the Hawaiian rolls at the bar with one of the cocktails and just enjoy the space. The Proper Hotel's lobby and the decor at Villon are designed beautifully.

The food is excellent but they really need to be more attentive to their guests. The time in between courses was inconsistent. Once they fix these issues this will be my new favorite spot.

The staff was very accommodating and responsive. We liked our server who helped us make our meal choices. She made good recommendations. They were very mindful of our need to leave in time to get to a theater performance. The food was inventive and delicious. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

I've been to Villon a couple times before and loved it. So I thought it would be such a great place to bring friends visiting from out of town. Unfortunately the experience did not live up to my memory and my recant of the place. Food was salty as we advised our server at the end. She agreed that there many same comments for the evening. We did not get seated for our 9:45 reservation until 10:30.... Couple dishes that stood out. Favorite was ribs and chicken breasts. Chocolate fettuccine was great except for the venison. I also think that people who make reservations at the restaurant and finish dining should have priority to the rooftop bar Charmaine after the guests of the hotel... We should not have to wait in line with people wanting to only visit the bar

As hotel guests at the Proper, we went to Villon twice, once for drinks at the bar, and once for Sunday brunch. Highlights consisted of: 1) The hosts were so kind and incredibly accommodating. They seated us immediately. 2) Our server was so nice during our brunch. He walked us through the menu, brought our drinks right away, was really knowledgeable and friendly, and overall made our experience really nice. 3) The food was really really good and hot (which, is something I always look for!) 4) The atmosphere is so chic and stunning. You’ll die over the bar setup and overall style of the place.

Overall, Villon is a 5 star place! Highly recommend it.
