Ordered my lamb medium and it was served well done. Jesse check up on us more than ten minutes later so I tried to eat the lamb but I did not like enjoy it at all. I informed him that my lamb was well done and if he can bring me the right order with medium temperature and he told me “No! It’s already eaten” I told him if u only check up on us couple minutes after you dropped our dinner I could have told you right away. Then he asked me “So what do you want?” “Do you want it to go?” I told him I did not eat yet, so can I have my lamb medium please. Hesitant...but he went to the kitchen and I guess he told them to cook me another order.
Servers who have no knowledge of proper customer service should not be in this kind of industry.
We were celebrating my son’s birthday and we didn’t even bother to order his dessert, tiramisu.
Ot was a very happy birthday
Good service and food. Would go back
Food was very good and crab bruschetta was killer as usual. We remained with friends well after our meal was finished and never felt rushed to leave. Very relaxed enjoyable evening.
The food was good, came out in a timely fashion and did not feel rushed, the waitress was nice and the waitress’s assistant (busboy) was exceptional. He was attentive to our needs and pleasant.
Bianca our server was excellent, service and food were outstanding.
Beautiful restaurant in terms of layout and ambience. The food was pretty good, but a touch on the expensive side for the quality. The dessert was great. Our server was a bit on the busy side so she wasn't as quick with refills or check ins as I'd prefer for the price point. But these are minor overall, especially considering it was Valentine's Day. I'd certainly return and recommend the restaurant.
The steak was not a good quality but tender. The lobster had no taste, more than likely frozen. The chicken parm was excellent. The atmosphere was very nice. My reservation being a first time for us to attend this restaurant was supposed to seat us on the upper level, but we were seated downstairs which was fine.
Great food and attentive service. We like coming
back here when we get the chance.
Wonderful meal, great selection, service and atmosphere! The wine selection was exceptional. I enjoyed a Sunday dinner with my wife and children and would highly recommend visiting in the near future!
Food and service were great as usual. Also, remembered that it was my birthday from our online reservation!
Birthday went great thanks to villaris
Constantly good service and food.
First time there for dinner, it was amazing! Delicious food and great prices. Can't wait to go back again!1
Alivia was our waitress. She was told that the Chicken in the Francese was "desert dry" and said, "Sorry" but never offered to exchange or do anything about it. (Wasn't looking for a free meal.) In fact he left the Chicken on the plate upon finishing. Chicken Parm Chicken was also dry. Other meals were good Tuna was cooked to order. We were only able to use 1 Local Flavor Coupon, so that leaves me with mine to use before 1/17/20. NOT SURE I'm returning or ever coming back. Willing to forgo the market value of the coupon.
Everything was great. Food was good, and the server Jessie was amazing.
Great food and service for a busy New Years Eve dinner. Very busy yet everything was perfect Always a great dining experience. One of our favorite spot. Highly recommend to all looking for a great time.
We had dinner on XMAS eve. We ordered off the menu. I was a little disappointed in the crab cakes. There was way too much filler. The lobster sauce helped with the taste. My friend had the salmon and really enjoyed it. We had the Christmas Cake it was delicious. I would go back.
The restaurant wasn’t crowded so it was kind of quiet. Food was delicious although you didn’t leave there feeling stuffed. Was actually hungry when wee got home. We even had dessert!
The Thanksgiving menu went beyond the usual turkey. The prime rib was delicious.
I was told when making reservations that the menu was a regular menu, only to find out that was NOT the case. My son and I had to order something different only to find out they ran out of what he wanted as a second choice. In to choice #3 and not at all what he wanted. They also ran out of dessert of our choice. My second choice was obviously thrown together and hard and dry (bread pudding). The wait was way too long for having reservations. I would not come back for a holiday meal.
This was our 2nd Thanksgiving and it was great. We requested bar seating so my dad could watch the game. You would think it would be loud, but it’s not. Very nice atmosphere, great food and surprisingly quick, friendly service considering how many people they serve throughout the day.
It was my very first time having Thanksgiving Dinner in a restaurant! I was a little nervous as to what to expect! But the turkey was HANDS DOWN the best I've ever eaten! The entire meal was delicious and I would definitely recommend Villari's Lakeside for any day of the year! Our server had a bad habit of making eye contact and walking away. It happened multiple times when we needed drink refills and we wanted to order dessert. It was annoying, but he said he's normally a bartender, so I think someone who was used to being a server would have been more attentive to our needs. Overall excellent experience, and I can't wait to go back again! Thanks for making our Thanksgiving a wonderful experience!
Very good food was great service was great
We were seated but the sun was glaring thru window because shade was broken. However after sitting at our new table we had the best waiter! I only wish I had his name for future dining. He wa so nice and attentive I will definitely be back and hope we get him.
Had a great anniversary dinner- quick service. Very friendly waitress and bus boy
Went for our anniversary. Everything was wonderful
Villari’s is a great place to dine. Food was excellent, especially the veal over ravioli and shrimp special. Our Jess was very attentive and gave us fantastic service.
LOVE Villari's. Great place, great vibe. The outdoor dining area is lovely...lovely little lake, gazebo, etc. Ambiance is wonderful. Collectively we had amazing ribs, seafood fest, wonderful grilled swordfish, and crab cakes. Every entree a hit. Attentive service, great place.
This was our first time dining at Villari's, and it was a very nice experience. The wait staff were nice, and accommodating, taking care of our needs as they arose. The food was good and well prepared. The chopped salad was not to my liking, for a couple of reasons. Once the salad looked as though it was thrown onto the plate, and I feel that a place like Villari's should pay a little more attention to the salads. Secondly, the dressing was a little to acrid for me. I am no fan of balsamic, so I would have hoped to have had a choice.
Lastly, we were never given the daily specials, which we had found out about after we received our food from a party who was getting them from their waitress.
All in all, it was a really good experience, and I will be going back again.
Waitress was great! The food could’ve been much better, it was average at best. Outdoor patio is beautiful.
We met 2 other couples for lunch last Saturday. We had a light lunch since we were going to a wedding that evening. We had salads and shared 2 pizzas . Everything was delicious and the meal was very enjoyable!
The setting and service were great. The pasta and salad dishes were excellent, but the fried calamari was rubbery and tasteless.
We sat upstairs for a date. We could still hear the music from the bar which was kinda loud. Our waitress was great and the food was delicious. I just wish we could have had a little more quiet of an atmosphere.
The lake is green. The food was bad. The service was fine. It struck me as a local bar striving to be a restaurant.
We enjoyed a relaxed atmosphere and delicious dinner. Tina was our server, she did an excellent job. Our food was delicious, drinks spectacular and the deck was an awesome place to enjoy our food. We will definitely be returning.
The chef created wonderful food that did not skimp on any ingredients. Deserts were indulgent and drinks phenomenal!
Walked in to no one at the front desk. After standing there awhile we had to flag down a waitress to show us where to go and sit. Disappointing since our reservation stated it was a birthday dinner but no was there to acknowledge it. We sat ourselves in a dining room that had two other families eating and was very quiet. A little music playing would have been nice. Our waiter finally arrived and was a little strange. The most he spoke was to take our order and deliver it. We never saw him again after we handed him the bill with payment. He never asked if we wanted change. Very strange and unsatisfying night.
Loved sitting outside enjoying dinner
Food was excellent. Service was great. Will definitely visit again.
