Incredibly overpriced!! $22 for a very small serving of rice with a teaspoon of lentils. They call it a lentil dish, but I counted less than 10 lentils. Also, the meal was sitting in a pool of oil.
I really wanted to love this place. The ambiance is amazing, but I couldn’t get over the mediocre service and so-so brunch food. After we were seated, it probably took at least 15-20 minutes before someone asked for our drink order. The lack of service continued through most of the meal. Begging for a refill on coffee isn’t my idea of fun. I ordered the California breakfast for $17. Not only were the portions so small that I had to grab something to eat after brunch, but it was really something I could cook at home...and I don’t cook. Absolutely nothing special about it. What was entertaining was that the table next to me had the same comment.
On a positive note, we ordered a side of the ricotta pancake, which was divine.
The butternut squash soup was out of this world, and the California kale was perfect to start with. Great drinks and vibe too
Really great food. The Brussels sprouts and potato’s are amazing. The full-service lounge is a great space.
Very tasty food from a short but concise menu as well as a variety of drinks. The atmosphere is rather casual for a very nice location with excellent staff.
It was fine. I usually expect more than "fine" at this price point, but it was fine.
Everything was perfection. The service, the drinks and the food was simply amazing. Well done! Cannot wait to go back
Beautiful space and the food was excellent as well—standard new American, nicely plated and while the food itself is nothing groundbreaking it's well executed and really enjoyed it. Would absolutely come again. Great date environment.
Great ambiance/lots of eye candy. Excellent cocktails & food, and waiter was awesome (low-key, just the right amount of friendly, and very helpful). Prices are high, and portions are small, BUT would return here in a nanosecond: the food & whole package is that good.
Such a beautiful restaurant. Food, service and ambiance were all excellent. We’d come back again.
Magical dinner - everything was stunning and across the 4 of us, we nearly tried everything. Thank you!
Great food great service and great drink selections. What more
Could you ask for?
Food was awesome
This is a find for anyone attending a performance at the Orpheum or Golden Gate Theater. It's got a great vibe, an interesting menu, and they understand the concept of getting diners to the theater on time.
Great pre-show restaurant- only a block away from the SHN Orpheum Theatre and two blocks from SHN Golden Gate Theatre. Great vibe and food.
Food was decent, restaurant was too small. Not sure why I would have to click "yes I will accept 100 points" when I booked this reservation. Obviously I would like the points.
No cocktails available despite the fact that the restaurant is designed around an elaborate bar!
staying at Proper Hotel, the Villon is just located on the first floor. Had dinner there, everything was good. Make sure you’ve got reservation before you go there, cause it’s very popular.
It was great
We were wowed last year on our first visit- the food was beautiful and creative. This time around, though the food was still well-executed, the kitchen seemed to have lost its edge- case-in-point: the Brussel sprouts were done in a way that’s indistinguishable from a thousand other eateries, deep fried and sweetened - why?
The portions were very small
All the food was so delicious and thoughtfully flavored. Our waiter was fantastic as well - very helpful, gracious and made for a really lovely dinner.
We had Sunday Brunch and dinner at Villon. I can not express how wonderful the food and service was. I love this restaurant and will be back as often as I can. My avocado toast was delicious and my husbands braised short rib melt was remarkable at brunch. Mary's Chicken for dinner was spectacular! Bravo to all of the staff at Villon. You made our day one of the best! Thank you all!
Brunch before theater matinee.
Remodel is great; hip modern cool vibe.
Small cozy dining room, a bit loud; nice ambience & interesting bar presentation, really liked it.
Good tasty generous mixed drinks.
Great friendly server.
I had quiche it was good but nothing exceptional. It may have been premade & reheat but nonetheless very flavorful & creamy.
My partner had avocado toast; tired of seeing it on menus but large singular piece attractively presented with shredder cheddar it was very much enjoyed.
Definitely will return for dinner. Thanks!
Excelente lugar, la decoración tiene detalles y es original
This was my third time there in 3 weeks. The first 2 times were AMAZING, but this last time the food was not at the same caliber as the previous times. The pork chop was not prepared the same way as previous time and was a bit overdone just as was the sea bass. Love the ambiance and the creative cocktails. Given the inconsistency in the food, it might be a while before our next visit.
Great food ambience .. and service.
Lovely ambiance and very good food. Perfect for a before-theater dinner.
Villon is beautiful, the service is exceptional, and the food preparation and presentation is excellent.
However, the portions are small and the prices very high. Be aware and prepared.
Great place to go before the theatre!
You can't leave without the brussel sprouts and a good cocktail.
Fantastic quiet birthday dinner.
The food was innovative and delicious and the cocktails were great.
A great experience
Great innovative food but this place is the epitome of pretty food and microscopic portions. We enjoy pre-fixe meals with 8-10 courses and small portion size but here the main courses portions are appetizer sizes with prices at main course levels. Yes you want to be hip but come on. The Brussel sprouts were great as an appetizer and decent size as were the salmon and chicken entrees — yummy except for the portion size. Great chocolate and pavlova dessert. Nice ambiance
Great atmosphere and unique experience here, with delicious food. I felt the menu was a little expensive for what we got but everything was delicious and not what I've seen on other menus in the city. Our server was really friendly and fun to talk to as well. Will be back.
Enjoyed my meal at Villon - the desserts were superb! the pavlova had blood orange sorbet along with huckleberries and the dark chocolate mousse with huckleberries was delicious. the opening hawaiian rolls are tasty, but overpriced. portions are on the small side, except dessert!
This is an amazing place to eat - it just costs a lot of money
Pre theater dinner
Food was delicious and I received above and beyond service. I would go back again! Great job team
We went to Villon before see Come From Away at the Golden Gate Theater. They were aware of our time frame and got us served in plenty of time. Their food was delicious. The service impeccable. Their bar menu is adorable. Highly recommend!
My girlfriend and I went to Villon because we wanted to check out Charmaine's rooftop bar. I had heard that the hotel itself had an incredible space and vibe, damn did it live up to the hype.
STYLISH, Chic atmosphere, good service. The food menu was very simple but quality and we both enjoyed our meals. I'd love to go back and try more. Would recommend if you have someone in town that you're looking to impress with a cool vibe.
