Came to see DCMF. Great band, however knowing that this was going to be a busy night, they should have been better prepared with service. Service was horrible and took so long to get food!! We knew coming in it would be slower than normal due to the band, however didn’t expect that type of service.
Our waitress was very slow!! Forgot our appetizer and saw that we had a child with us. Not attentive at all!! Food was wonderful!!! I will be back, however I will not accept her as our server. Also we were there to celebrate my husband's birthday. Flat evening!
Food was sub par, food taste old / frozen. I had the lobster , the food lacked seasoning
The food is always superb here! Authentic Italian food with an Extensive menu of pasta, seafood, fish, and meat...there is something for everyone. They have the best seafood risotto and crime brûlée. Villari’s never disappoints!
We are first time diners and we’re Pleasently surprised at The Quality and Presentation of our dinner The service was excellent which made our experience even better. We will Definitely Be Back Soon.
Villari's was such a great experience. I have been here in the past with family, and they never disappoint.
Great dining experience. Food was fantastic as usual. Our server Alexa was very nice and attentive and checked in with us a few times to see if we needed anything. Villari’s is quite consistent as every meal makes you want to return.
Very attentive, friendly atmosphere. Romantic. Food was just ok. Desserts were excellent.
Our waitress was a doll! She was very nice.
The food was too greasy (we even had Chilean Seabass) and they ask for a reservation when it was DEAD in the restaurant area.
We had a party of 8 and the table was ready when we got there. Our waitress was great! Drinks and food were awesome!
That’s what you look for in a restaurant
Everything was very nice. The wait staff and food were all excellent.
great chicken Sinatra and chicken saltambuca- wonderful service started with warm bread- a fantastic blue cheese dressing for the salad
Service was incredibly slow. Food was OK. We were a party of 8 and not very pleased with our overall dinner.
My friend waited for 15 minutes and no one came to our table. But as other guests were seated next to us, they were getting attended to. We noticed people who came after us were even being served drinks...yet no one ever came to our table. So, we got our coats and left. We did explain to the host why we were leaving so abruptly.
Great service and great food. The restaurant has an upstairs section for couples seating which overlooks the lake. There is a separate lounge/bar if you are looking for that. Very comfortable atmosphere and a pretty extensive food and drink menu. This is my new go-to place.
Our waiter Tyler was excellent very personable kept checking on us if we needed anything. The appetizers we had were delicious crabcakes and shrimp wrapped in bacon! Our entrees filet sinatra, lobster franchise over angel hair were amazing, everything we had was so delicious! If you havent eaten here yet you must try it!
Been going to Villari’s for years. Never had a bad meal, great chef and great food
Our server, Alexa C. made it a wonderful experience. She was friendly and polite. She took good care of us even though she had to run up and down the stairs cause we were on second floor. The food was excellent! This was our first time there and enjoyed every minute of it. We will be going back.
New Year's Eve was our first visit to Villari's and the food was outstanding. There are so many dining areas in this restaurant that you will, definitely, find a spot that is comfortable for you. The seafood bisque was absolutely amazing! We agreed that this was the best seafood, crab, lobster bisque that we've ever encountered anywhere! The Crab N Artichoke dip was great also! The desserts were great as were the cocktails. We were too stuffed to order entrees. We'll have to go back on a more sane evening to rate the service, because our server was stretched far too thinly and had a wonderful temperament and knowledge.
Went on New Years Eve for a 6:00 dinner. Was not aware "Special New Years Eve Dinner Menu " would be only menu available , not shown on their website or their website calendar. It only listed their 2 New Years Eve celebrations later that evening. They crowded more tables into Dining Room , was very cramped. Although service was okay we felt rushed. Special menu very limited & more expensive then their regular fare and not as described on menu, smaller portions and not up to their regular standards. Frequent diner hear but never again on a Holiday..
We really enjoyed our Christmas eve dinner at Villari's Lakeside. The food was delicious and served hot. The server was terrific and took great care of us. I cannot wait to go back.
My family and I went to Villari's on Xmas Eve. We had reservations and were seated immediately. Our waitress was attentative and friendly but not really in the holiday mood. The food was very good. The escarole soup was served hot and was tasty. Our filet mignon and mashed potatoes were very good. However, the asparagus was bland. I would have liked more of a Xmas feel....soft music..decor...and a Merry Christmas when leaving. (People spend more when the atmosphere is festive) I didn't feel I was out for a holiday as I have in other restaurants. I also left a very generous tip and was not thanked by the waitress as I have been in the past. Overall it was a good night but I wouldn't spend a holiday there again.
We had a wonderful Christmas Eve dinner here this year and are planning on doing it again next year! Thank you Villari's!
Went to lunch - treating a friend for her 86th birthday. We had a lovely table overlooking the water, the waiter was very friendly, the food was delicious. My friend wanted an item that was not on the lunch menu and we requested same. The waiter checked for us and the cook graciously prepared the dish my friend requested. We will definitely be returning and I would most definitely recommend Villari's for any meal of the day and any occasion.
We have been to Villari’s for lunch and the tiki bar which is great but yesterday we did the breakfast with Santa event. Staff was friendly, Santa and his elf were extremely personable and patient. My family had a great time!
Great Santa brunch. Good buffet. My son loved it. Will be attending next year.
Absolutely amazing experience from the moment we walked in through sitting at the bar after our meal to enjoy an after dinner cocktail! Food, service, cleanliness and atmosphere were amazing!
I like Villari's a lot. The menu is interesting and has lots of choices, the food is very good and the view is lovely. Last night it was lively, lots of holiday parties, so a bit too loud for me. But I'll be back! On a quieter note.
Food was delicious! We were there for Thanksgiving and the turkey dinner was amazing!!
Great atmosphere and phenomenal food! Top quality, service and ambiance!
have always had a great meal n service, always mention to others when asked about a good place to eat
I took my husband and we loved it. All the food was amazing and the drinks were very good
Went for a nice birthday that my sister Donna paid for 13 family members and 2girl friends. Was so nice and food is always good. 1 thing 2waitrers instead of 1 sharing the table and tip would have been better. I was a waitress in my early young woman years. I love team work still. He did a great job. But l think over 10 people need 2wait staff.
music is way to load for a dinning room when we were the only twp people dinning
I have eaten here on numerous occasions and most always have a very positive experience and this last time was not an exception. Our appetizers were exceptional as well as our main meal. We had so much to eat we could not stick around for dessert.
My birthday dinner was superb
Kayla our waitress was very attentive.
I haven’t bern to Villari’s for quite a few years and was thrilled with every aspect of our experience there. Will be back again!
Blackened chicken was a bit over cooked, but overall good experience. Would recommend to others and will be back.
I was impressed that the chef had no problem making what I wanted which wasn't on the menu. Lovely outdoor setting.
