Took my boyfriend here for Valentine’s dinner. From the moment we stepped in the entrance door we were greeted with polite friendly faces and looked after well. The food was absolutely incredible, I had the lamb shoulder and I can honestly say it was the best lamb I have ever had! The service was amazing the waitress we had looking after us was lovely. We will definitely be back again! Beautiful restaurant and bar.
Great place to visit before going to the Odessey Cinema
Excellent service, food and ambience.
Thank you 😊
Been many times. Really good . Would highly recommend
Excellent food and service, only slight issue is it's a very noisy restaurant
Terrible, slow service for average food. Wouldn’t recommend or return there.
Very noisy. Had to send back our starters prawn pil pil was cold. Gravalax brown and dry. Mains were passable. Service shocking. Very noisy and sat by a window that was drafty. We asked to move and no one bothered to follow it up.
The restaurant itself is lovely, great atmosphere and I can’t fault the staff but the food is just average, nothing special. I had to send back my dessert as the pastry was raw, the staff dealt with it efficiently and quickly and I was offered an alternative which was nice. Will try again as it may have been an one off
Loved it, food was amazing and staff were great. Beautiful restaurant xx
An excellent meal in very attractive surroundings. We went midweek and had the two course lunch - very efficiently served by attentive staff (but there were very few customers in the restaurant at that time). Portions were generous and food was delicious. They turned the music down when requested. Will go again.
The steaks were amazing! They really stole the show. The wait staff were lovely and very accommodating of our demanding two year old! I'd defo go back the next time i'm in St Albans.
Very nice restaurant, not very busy despite trying to book and it looked like it had been booked out.
Food was delicious though starter was rather small. Test well set out perfect for couples or groups of 3-5 as tables were quite small 👍
A very enjoyable lunch was spent with family. The staff were very pleasant and attentive providing great service. We had the set menu for 2 which had a good choice of dishes for lunchtime. The restaurant has heated outdoor seating inside large pods, which are light up at night and look very romantic. We booked online which was very easy to do and were able to get the time we wanted. Will definitely be going back!
We enjoyed as a family eating for the first time at the restaurant . The food, the service the ambience where all excellent. The food was delicious especially the sea food stew, my only disappointment was the portion seemed unnecessarily small.
We’ve been to St Villa twice before and really enjoyed it. Sadly this time was disappointing. Our waitress was inexperienced and bought the food out in the wrong order. She bought my husband the wrong main so my food got cold whilst I waited for his to arrive. His cheese stack starter had very little cheese in it and so perhaps should have been called a mushroom and pepper stack instead. Such a shame because we’ve loved it here previously. We hope it was just a bad night for the restaurant and that others have better experiences.
Dined in an igloo ... really nice & personal
Great value with the £12.95 menu valid til 6.30pm on Sat perfect spot for a quick bite before a film at the Odyssey
Nice looking restaurant but service was a bit hit and miss and the food was overpriced.
We went to this restaurant on Christmas Day. The food, friendly service and ambience was excellent. I would definetly recommend.
Very surprised to learn Xmas menu was only pre order, there were two of us. Xmas menu on the website, but not clearly marked about pre order.
So could only choose from main menu and nightly specials.
If I knew there no available Xmas wouldn't have gone back to this restaurant.
Great food, but music too loud, difficult to have a pleasant conversation and too draughty with staff going in and outside to service the outdoor igloos.
Thank you to all the staff at St. Villa Bar and Restaurant for the most amazing Christmas Menu to celebrate with my work colleagues, wonderful food and superb service all night.
Very good overall the only thing I would say is that it was cold in the restaurant and spent most of dinner with our coats on. Still food was lovely and the service very good
Portions looked a little on the mean side, perhaps it was an illusion by the size of the plates it was served on. As a result, the meal was not overly heavy.
Waited 40 mins for starter. Then the main was cold for one of us. Had to be sent back. But they did come us that course which was nice. Food was fine overall.
A lovely ambiance in a light airy space with good seating for enjoying your own group's conversation. The food was well presented, healthy and very tasty. Good service also.
This was a great Christmas treat outside in an igloo, 3.30-5.30 was great to see it outside and then the lights at night. We had a wonderful meal together and our 5 year old joined us abit later for dessert together as a treat. We loved it.
Slow service, undercooked food, rude overbearing waiter
Very disappointing when the experience has previously been very good. Possibly too many covers to cope ?
Perfect in every way
Second visit in two months - family dinner and date night. Would come again!
Not impressed with crowded in tables and quality of good for the price.
Will not be returning
The igloo was amazing - although we did have to keep zipping the door completely shut after our waitress as we lost the warmth very quickly. Service was not as good towards the end, despite our waitress working very hard. However a few of the male staff (Or maybe 1 with his friends?) were having coffee in an igloo while she was the only one working towards the end of the meal.
We loved the food and the service was great too. The staff were smiley and friendly.
My friends and I had a very enjoyable meal. However it was very noisy and the lighting was poor making it difficult to read the menu. The staff were polite and helpful.
Beautiful setting. Lovely, classy atmosphere. High quality food and service. Will definitely visit again.
A very good selection of food and drink, with great service in a lovely setting. We felt looked after with attentive, but not over the top, service.
It was amazing. Food and drinks were delicious! The only downside. It was a bit on the chilly side in the restaurant
Lovely restaurant and the food was really nice, we will go back!
I booked the table asking if was possible eat in the bubble that are outside in the garden and my request has been accepted. We eat in the bubble that was really warm and quiet. Food was amazing, antipasto and dessert were really teasty and creative.
Really an amazing dinner for an anniversary or a date.
