This place is a knock out. It works on all levels. Gorgeous room, great food, excellent staff. And it's an interestingly different menu. I look forward to returning and making my way through the menu.

Amazing service and food! Brussels sprouts was delicious with really high quality of ingredients and the Pork belly was fantastic with honey gastrique on Swiss chard. Will definitely came back with other guest. I will say that Villanelle’s is a wonderful place to enjoy a great meal with your loved ones.

Villanelle is a quiet place with very good quality of food. Waiter is very friendly and helpful. We had brunch there. Food was fresh and nicely prepared. It is a little pricey though.

Super food in a wonderful location. So delicious! Chicken was fantastic. Panna Cotta with preaches was spectacular. Nice wine list. Not too many choices, but everything is delicious.

Excellent inventive food and attentive and thoughtful service. Very accommodating to modify dishes for gluten-free dietary restriction.
We shared the watermelon/grilled oyster and the dandelion and burrata salads to start. The former was light and fresh tasting on a hot summer night and the latter was delicious and savory. We then had grilled octopus, one of the best renditions of that I’ve tasted and the cavatelli. We thought we may have under-ordered when the latter dishes came out due the sizes, but were more than satisfied.
We finished with a couple of grilled peach and yogurt pana cottas, a perfect ending to the meal.

Had a fabulous meal at Villanelle. The summery watermelon/oyster appetizer was unexpectedly refreshing and tasty. Love the duck dumplings. So flavorful. Our server was terrific, answered all of our questions and suggested some great wines for our dishes. My husband loves the cocktails here. This place is a gem. Go!

Service was really horrible. We had six people and they kept bringing out five pieces, didn’t listen to our questions or inform us on the size of the dishes even when we asked.

Lovely restaurant. My only recommendation is that there would be a larger selection of entrees with more vegetarian selections because I have many vegetarian friends whom I can’t take to your restaurant. Respectfully, Janet Damon

Villanelle never disappoints. Terrific staff. Attentive and friendly. The menu changes seasonally and always has inventive and delicious options. Last meal was with my two teenagers who loved it as well. Highly recommend the octopus main dish, Brussels Sprouts app and I loved the venison. Tender and flavorful. Portions are moderately sized but an incredible value for how well done everything is.

The staff is exceptionally welcoming and attentive. The space is well appointed but spare and attractive. The menu is smaller but changes seasonally and is always varied enough for everyone to find a delicious meal. I’ve gone there twice for brunch and once for dinner and each time enjoyed the meal immensely. Brunch wise I can recommend the eggs Benedict with duck confit. The Brussel Sprouts hash was excellent as well. They also have a great selection of specialty teas and cocktails. Prices are super value for what you get.

We had a wonderful evening at Villanelle. The food is elevated - beautifully presented and delicious flavors. The venison was among the best I've had and the wine selection by the glass was exceptional. Our server was very attentive and the atmosphere is both elegant and casual. An overall truly enjoyable dinner.

This was our third time to dine at Villanelle, with second time being Thanksgiving, which we were very happy with. We ordered pretty much the same as what we ordered the first time. Beet tartare was excellent. Butternut squash, however was about half the portion compared to the first time. Yet, the price was the same. Crispy octopus was very good. However, it was mostly broccoli and we had maybe 5 small pieces of octopus, not even amounting to one whole leg. Again, The portion was smaller than before. At this point, we felt cheated. My cod was ok, nothing special. Service is excellent. But, with so many amazing restaurants in NYC with similar price range, we are not planning to return for some time.

The ambience and service was wonderful, wine was great, but honestly food was really odd.. the menu did not describe items very well and it was a weird collection of items. The restaurant is great for a class of wine at the bar but wouldn’t recommend for the food.

It’s been up and down at Villanelle. We’ve had some truly outstanding meals and some which have been just so-so. Tonight, unfortunately, more the latter than the former. Perhaps next time we’ll be back to outstanding.

My wife and I were visiting Manhattan during the week of Christmas and we couldn't be happier to have dined at Villanelle! Our server was extremely accommodating, friendly, and professional. The food was superb and made with fresh ingredients. We loved every single detail about the restaurant -- the ambiance, the interior design, and even the simple yet elegant tableware. Everything was amazing.

The food and drinks were excellent! The staff was very attentive and knowledgeable. They were able to make great recommendations and suggest perfect wine pairings for each course. The macerated brussel sprouts were delicious! It’s also a very simple space with very attractive lighting and the noise level was low which allowed for good conversation. A real winner in the neighborhood!
