The Ville has a menu that features New Orleans fare since the chef/owner was trained at Commander's Palace. Servings are plentiful and delicious. Very good server as well.

Took my wife and daughter for Mother's day. We had a great time. The restaurant is nicely appointed. We enjoyed the Sunday brunch buffet. We lived in Louisiana for several years and found the food to be authentic. They have a wide variety of delicious creole dishes. Probably need more staff and definitely more plates. I will recommend The Ville anytime that I can.

This is a gourmet restaurant with meals prepared with pride. Service has been great each time we've been there. Try it out. It's close ( corner of 10th and Logan in Noblesville) and it'd be a great night out with your sweetie.

I found the food to be outstanding at The Ville. It was my first visit and there will be other visits in my future. I have already suggested The Ville Restaurant to numerous friends.

on the down side, it was a bit noisy, but nothing that we couldn't deal with. I do have a recommendation that for leftovers, the server boxes the food at the table for the guests. It's just a nice touch.

Thank you for a wonderful evening.

A wierd set-up inside, almost like diner seating. You sit along either wall and get to watch servers going back and forth in the main aisle. Waiting area is right by the kitchen entrance so you constantly have to make room for the servers going in and out.

Took my wife for Valentine's Day. They had a special menu that night. Food was excellent, and the server gave a great beer recommendation. Food was slow coming, but they were pretty crowded. Had a harpist playing, which was nice. We want to go back and order off their "regular" menu. Nice place to have in downtown Noblesville.

Went for Valentine's day - great fixed menu, shared appetizer, romantic and very polite staff. The food is all homemade, excellent salmon, steak cooked perfect, tomato bisque soup was needing a bit more seasoning, but you can tell it's ALL handmade/homecooked - The crab cakes are to die for....so full of chunky crab and so well cooked - the sauce that came with the crab cakes as well as the shrimp cocktail was housemade and excellent....I love that this is a family run business, support your local family businesses guys.....family photos hanging on the wall and you recognize them in the staff.....mother/father and children seem to be working here....*side note, the dessert was chocolate cake, but so thick, more like fudge, and dark chocolate, not sweet at all, with a rasberry coolie on top....yum! The harpist that was playing on this evening was excellent - not sure if she's there all the time, but she should be. Great atmosphere - nothing too fancy, but that's ok - the food is very good...the staff works so hard-our waiter was a bit late getting to our table, but once he did the food kept coming and it was all good. thank you my husband for taking me out and thank you The Ville for giving Noblesville another great spot to eat - good clean food.

Great food, bad service and organization. Fully arranged Valentine's Day menu. Waitress was poorly organized and said things to customers that probably shouldn't be said. It seemed that the kitchen wasn't in sync with the wait staff, or at all. We waited 20-30 minutes between courses, had empty water glasses, and I felt bad for the folks next to us who had to wait for a clean spoon. The places closes at 9. I know that because it was announced by the waitress. The table beside us hadn't even gotten their main course yet. We arrived at 7 and left at 9:40. Sure, we enjoyed the time together, but there is no way this length of time was appropriate. You could see other patrons growing frustrated as well. The place wasn't busy enough to warrant this delay. With so many dining options, we won't go back just because we can choose other establishments. I just simply got the impression leadership is in over their head. New staff was being trained during a busy dinner evening, and of all nights to grab an opportunity to step up the energy...missed big time.

Very good restaurant that is a good addition to the area. Only complaint is that there were several items that weren't available for a normal Saturday dinner time frame. The server seemed a little new, but very friendly and the owners were very hospitable. The food is worth the price and I am definitely planning on coming back.

$50. Was to much for cold and some food was over cooked. The stuffed mushrooms where good and the dessert but that was it. Not much for a brunch for the price and we won't go back.

Delicious food, cozy atmosphere, and attentive service! Plus, we got to meet the on-site owners/chef, who obviously take pride in their great food and a quality customer experience. We happened upon this little gem when searching for something new, but the delicious food and warm, personal service will keep us coming back for more.

My husband and I ate at The Ville for Sunday brunch for the very first time. We both agreed the food was very good and the service was outstanding. I would like to have seen a few more breakfast choice items as most of the foods were geared towards lunch/dinner. It was nice to see the owners out mingling with the customers and asking how everything was. We were both impressed and will be back for another delicious meal.

We ordered the jerked wings and the chicken drumettes for appetizers. Both were very good. We ordered Chicken Marsala , it is amazing. My son ordered the special Steak Diane. Very tender and flavorful. To finish the meal we ordered the Creme Brulee. We have never had it before with the fruit added, the fruit adds a extra flavor to a tasty desert. Kudos to the chef for a amazing dinner with my family. We'll definitely be back.

We were given a Groupon for our Anniversary to dine for Brunch.. We wanted a New dining experience. We were pleased initially when at church how easy to make reservations. We invited our dear friends from church the Colemans to come too. We arrived to smell our dream foods....We were seated immediately and introduced to their Brunch. There was a nice array of foods on buffet. The Shrimp &Grits were so tasty. There was also an Omelette station with Prime rib carving station. We were offered Mimosas or Wine . All the food was very Good and very appealing. We all left stuffed and feeling totally satisfied.

We felt the food was overpriced for what we received. Most entrees are going to average $25-$30 and out of the four of us only one was satisfied. We all felt that each meal was worth about half of what we were charged. Quinoa meal was okay, jambalaya was below average and tasted like tomato sauce. The highlight of our night was our server, Hayden, who was very attentive and nice. However, there was another woman server that kept on getting on Hayden right in front of us and even cussed at one point. Not a huge deal but was noticeable. Seems that they are more well known for their brunch service on the weekends but doubt we will return to find out. We love small family owned restaurants so we really hope they turn it around.

First let me say I am definitely going back. I believe that my experience was not typical. First the amazing. The gumbo was the best since I have been in New Orleans. My wife's food, shrimp and grits, AMAZING, the Cesar salad made at table side FANTASTIC!!!!- now for the bad-our server was a young kid, never heard about the specials until I heard the owner telling the table next to us, if I would have known them I would have chosen one. I ordered a crab bake- when it first came out the corn was still frozen, the potatoes not done. They recooked them but I received the corn and potatoes after my wife had finished her desert and they were not seasoned. Disappointing for a $28 dollar meal.

The owner did take $10 off the bill but the truth is that part of my meal disappointing for a date night.

I won't order that again and I truly hope next time my visit goes better

EXCELLENT food, but expensive. Noisy. Over extended wait staff, but pleasant. Ville attempts to have an upscale ambiance, but its not quite there yet. A few adjustments would help: staff uniforms fitting of an upscale restaurant (similar) would be good; a less stressed, more attentive staff; less delay in getting the menu and more of a feeling that we were welcomed and wanted. A bit of decorative color would liven the place up a bit.

After a very slow start, food ordering and delivery was excellent and timely. The most upscale part of the dinner (in addition to the food) was having our napkins removed from the wine glasses and laid our laps...never since our last cruise....a nice unexpected touch! After the crowd left we got a lot of attention and some great conversation with our waitress; even the owner.

We'll be back for the wonderful food.
