Great location for a brunch before a show at Orpheum.
The service was extraordinary! We were running late for the theater and our wonderful server got us beautifully fed and to the theater in time. A gem on Market St! We will return!
Fantastic service, delicious food, beautiful setting!
Nice hotel and good atmosphere.
Great place to have a dinner prior to theater at the Golden Gate or the Orpheum. Remember to come through the front door of the hotel, which is on the other side of the restaurant, not quite as intuitive as you'd think. But so much fun!
The menu is quite a lot better at lunch. I did not enjoy my dinner. I did not complain but they noticed I didn’t eat it and kindly comped it but I’d rather have had an enjoyable meal. The people are very nice and the ambiance is great.
We enjoyed our dinner immensely and the service was impeccable!
Overall not bad but really over-priced. The 'nachos' which set you back $16 are just 4 medium sized corn chips, they're good but $4 per corn chip is a little much. Pull your head in guys.
Great food, great service. Can’t wait to go back!
Our waitress was fantastic! Very attentive. She made our evening! Great atmosphere. Very chic. Food was delicious.
Perfect Start in the day with delicious breakfast
Delicious food for breakfast. Very friendly service. Thank you for the great Start in the day
The food was absolutely delicious. One of the best dinners I've ever had honestly. And I've eaten at a lot of great restaurants. This place is off the charts!
The food was very poorly described on the menu for both the dishes I chose. I explained what was wrong when asked and they comped us the food - but not what we had hoped for. Manager came to apologise but too late!
They went above and beyond for us and made my birthday celebration a huge success!
Excellent meal, cool lobby, accommodating servers. And we had no trouble at all getting to the Orpheum for a 7pm show with a 5:30pm reservation.
Brunch before Hamilton matinee . Good service, good
food. Would come again.
Great duck and cocktail, over cooked ‘catch of the day’.
Best halibut I've had in a long time. Ambiance was wonderful and staff was very attentive.
Well done, we had small plates, they were excellent.
Jim was a skilled server.
Villon - you can do better on the burger. Dry beyond edible, doesn't come with anything beyond the bun, patty, some orange sauce and a slice of cheese. We didn't even get the pickle. Bun was good at least!
Very good we chose to dine here before seeing Hamilton. Very good. Just right quality & quantity.
Very cool vibe! Everything is homemade and delicious!
Food presentation was wonderful and delicious. Glad we made reservations.
The menu is fairly short, maybe 6 items to choose from for starters and main courses. The server was very helpful, asking about food allergies right at the beginning. For starters my companion had a kale salad and I had some raw fish paired with (I think) shiso leaves and little crunchy spicy bits, and a sort of eggy fishy foam, which all worked very well together. For main course I had the pork chop, well cooked with a very rich sauce/gravy, that came with a spicy salad mixture that really offset the richness of the pork; my companion had duck, which he also liked. The desserts are quite large, probably meant to share, but I couldn't eat most of them because of a nut allergy, so I had the blackberry chocolate dessert, which was blackberry ice cream, blackberries, chocolate sauce, a whole brownie, and a chocolate crispy cookie thing, which was altogether too much, I would have loved it without the brownie. I wish they had had just an ice cream or sorbet dessert to finish the meal more lightly. Final note: they know how to brew proper tea, in a big heavy metal pot, using loose tea.
Villon is a decent option before a show, but I wouldn't make a destination of it. The food was solidly good, but not at the price point. I found the entree portion a bit small. We ordered the Hawaiian bread with the yummy jam, but again, way over priced for one roll. The service wasn't warm and I had to ask for water refills several times. The decor is lovely. The noise level was high, but not impossible for conversation. All in all, I'd eat there if I needed a last minute reservation. Otherwise, there are better options in the area.
Great place to eat before the Theater! Cute, good food, quick service.
Fine experience. I liked my dish more than my husband liked his. Great atmosphere and service. i will definitely go back.
Will definitely come back! Food and service were great!
Great food! Please try the Hawaiian bread, brussel sprouts side, and pasta. You'll be pleasantly surprised.
Love the location and, though the menu is small, the items are varied and of excellent quality.
This place was wonderful from start to finish. We enjoyed some bread and the nachos then had main courses that were excellent and ended with four exceptional meals.
Food portions are lacking, but the beautiful backdrop of the bar makes this place a lovely place for a girl's brunch.
The last time I was a Villon, the menu and food were magnificent. They had a chocolate pasta that I was craving all the way down in LA. The chef has changed and the menu is completely different. Thr brussel sprouts and Hawaiian bread were great. The rest of our meal was so so. The drinks are good and the waiters are wonderful.
I met two long time friends here whom I haven’t seen in years. We sat and had a leisurely 3 hour lunch. I was wary of Villon because it’s gotten some spotty reviews lately but our experience was perfect. The waiter was very patient with us. I didn’t feel forgotten ever. They did not push us either to order and leave. The food was very tasty. My only small gripe was that portions were a tad small (the tostada was really tiny! We had to order an extra chef salad to share to make up for the size of the tostada) and it is pricey. But it’s a beautiful space and was all worth it to catch up with dear friends.
Great food, great service. We had dinner before the 7:00pm showing of Hamilton. We were a bit upset that our food came out so late (patrons next to us were seated after us and were already on dessert when our food came!), but they made it right by comping appetizers and a round of drinks. We loved the aesthetic of the place as well. Will come back.
Amazing food and service. Small food menu, but lengthy bar menu...everything super yummy.
We went for brunch and the food was delicious. I thought it was a little expensive for what you got but it was good and the service was great.
The portions are *small* Like, a 34 dollar branzino entree had possibly 2 oz of fish on it. It was offensive. What did they do with the rest of the fish? Ive never ordered brazino and not gotten the whole fish. Maybe if the menu read 1 branzio filet I could take responsibility for leaving hungry. The starters were ok but for 4 bites of food at 16 bucks a pop, I really need to have my socks blown off. And when spending 450 before tip for 4 people, had most certainly better leave full. Wont be back for food....
