The service was incredibly slow - not the staff's fault but there were not enough people on duty - penny pinching by management I assume. The food was OK but did not merit the price. The whole of the nice room had been hired out to a private party so the table and ambience were not nice. Allin all, fairly poor value and not enjoyable. Staff were very friendly, so I do stress it was not their fault.

The dining area is lovely and the service was impeccable, but with the exception of pizza (which was nice) the food was horrendous. The battered fish was mostly batter and had clumps of uncooked goo and my so-called salt beef sandwich was not cooked fresh, but one thin slice of deli meat which was dried out and hard and the bread was so over toasted, it scraped my mouth. I wouldn’t recommend it.

Food was good but it was extremely noisy thanks to hard floors and 2 very large groups right next to out table - we had to shout to hear each other. I'm sure it would be a lot better atmosphere on a quieter night.

Ive been to the restaurant before a long time ago and that was good. This time though we ate in the cafe which has a different menu. The calamari didnt seem fresh, and the main courses, were just a little dry. Service and atmosphere was very nice though

We had a lovely afternoon at Villandry as a gift for my mother in law. Food was fantastic, prosecco was topped up better than any brunch I have been to and the staff were lovely. My only frustration is that I asked to be moved to a booth (we were seated right in the center of the restaurant) which the waiter told me we’re all fully booked and I ‘should have booked in advance as the tables were all due to arrive at midday’ - the same as our booking. Given that I booked three months earlier and specifically asked as it was a special occasion to have a booth seat and the table didn’t arrive until over an hour later I didn’t feel he maintained the high level of customer care as the rest of the staff did- who were all genuinely wonderful. Needless to say we had a good time.

Thoroughly enjoyed my first visit to Villandry. Met for brunch and was impressed with the menu. We were also offered a prosecco / all you can eat type option, but went for the a la carte menu - which didn't disappoint. Staff were attentive but in no way pushy. Will be happy to return on another day.

Thanks Villandry. It's always a bit noisy in the more relaxed seating area but I do prefer it to the more formal eating area. A great salad for me and soup for my colleague. Helpful staff, thanks a lot.

Has Villandry Great Portland Street changed ownership. It used to be great. Now its a cross between Cote and Giraffe. Whats happened ?
I happened to have two meals there in the last two weeks, the first the chicken came up cold, I sent it back and the second one also came up cold - I ate it as I didn’t want to make a fuss. The second time last week - I went for a burger - no cheese but with a soft fried egg. Burger came with cheese - no egg.
I sent it back at it came out right the second time - but of course for the second week running my guest ate his meal first.

Get your act together guys - portions and presentation have also declined - are we looking at another liquidation on the cards?

Arrived and the person at reception didn’t find our booking even though we had booked the table on that same morning. He wasn’t intending to do anything to accommodate us and claimed it was an open table fault to continue to take same day bookings when they didn’t take them into account. We finally got seated thanks to another waiter who was more helpful but we got put to the back of the restaurant (not the cafe as initially booked) where we were surrounded by various groups of loud hen parties. Food was very average and so was the service. Will not visit again.

We had an excellent lunch with very good service. It was slightly noisy for comfortable conversation but that was probably because there were lots of groups having Christmas lunch.

Villandry is a popular place for lunch. Service is brisk and friendly, the restaurant is comfortable and welcoming. This is not a cheap option and the food quality reflects this fact. The food is well presented and tasty although portions are not generous. However, this is just the way thigs are in central London.
