Great ambiance. Super trendy. A must go!
Lunch entrees were very average. The desserts seemed to meet the price point, though. Service seemed pretty slow considering there were only a few parties in the restaurant.
Don’t come here for afternoon tea for sure! The hotel is very chic, but the hostess’ service was really one of the worst we had in SF. Not only that, the food was beyond bad! We didn’t really eat anything from the pastry set!
Wonderful, quiet, lovely place to have lunch or dinner before attending an event. A real hidden gem in San Francisco.
Amazing truffle butter rolls and ribs that just fall right out of the bone with tons of flavor !
We love this restaurants for a number of reasons. Proximity to Golden Gate and Orpheum Theatre, the atmosphere in the restaurant, the incredible array of delicious and beautiful cocktails and of course the food which is delivered with delicate layers of flavor beautiful presentation and unlike anything else. We look forward to returning.
The prices for breakfast were reasonable and the food was excellent
Food was not impressive but expensive. Service was good.
So delicious. Everything was thoughtful and beautiful and so tasty. Service was fabulous!
Lovely space, intimate but not too private. I wish it had a baffled ceiling so we could converse with friends better. The space is perfect for that. Food is delicious.Pricey but good. And I had a really wonderful Mai Tai. Yum.
Service was great! Food was delicious.
I've never felt physically sick from French toast before, or any other food, before now. The feeling lasted the rest of the day. Server forgot my drink. Grabbed our own water from nearby cart. Only bonus was he forgot to charge for our coffee. We didn't correct the mistake.
Coming to this place for the second time reminded us why we enjoy coming. The service that Jim provided was kind and knowledgeable which is something we truly value as it gives you an insight to the experience ahead. We couldn't think of a better meal for the evening and appreciate the thoughtfulness and care the Chef obviously has for what you are to enjoy. This place has a great setting, caring individuals and a Chef that produces wonderful and pleasing food, what more could you ask for.
Thank you as the dinner ended a wonderful night for us!
My 4th time at Villon. New chef in Commonwealth Jordan Fox. Bit of a shake up on the menu with some things dearly missed, salt cod croquettes tiny but great. Crab salad the same. Wagyu beef good but at $54 with fingerling potatoes, not the best. No wines ir alcohol and one chocolate cheesecake and the final bill with tip $300. Great service !!!!!
This is bit of a parody of modernist cooking - the portion sizes are ridiculous at any price and certainly at the price charged here. If you're looking for modernist cuisine, you'd do better for lunch - much much much better - at Mourad. It's no more expensive; it's better (they have a Michelin star) and the portions are doable. This doesn't totally surprise me - I was a fan of the chef when he was at his last restaurant, but the service there was also arrogant and pretentious. Don't get me wrong - it's better than food in a flyover state but it's not sensational enough for the attitude. Over there, we got the tasting menu and a bottle of expensive wine for my birthday and got rushed out because they said someone else had a reservation - they never told us the timer was set when we sat down.
Some details: the crab starter with, among other things, seaweed was o-kay, but about three tablespoons for about $18. The tempeh sandwich was good, but teeny-tiny amount of tempeh and tons of bread. On the upside, all of the service was terrific, and it's beautiful. If you were in another city, or if you are anorexic, this could be the place for you. But at this price, in this city, there are tons of better places.
Food was wonderful. Even concessions to California standards didn't hurt this modern take on classic French cuisine.
This is my fifth time at this restaurant and I keep coming back and bringing friends to share in the fun. Each time I receive exceptional service and have a wonderful dining and taste experience. Thank you to Jens and Antonio for welcoming us and treating us so beautifully!
A friend and I had dinner there before a show - it's conveniently located to a couple of theaters. We really enjoyed our meal. We were short on time, so the waitress made a point of getting the food to us as quickly as possible. Everything was very good, but brussels sprouts were a favorite. Well, those and the Umbrellas drinks. Really glad we made reservations, too, because it's a popular place.
We went for dinner before a show. Our waitress was excellent at explaining the menu and for keeping us on track to be out on time. The restaurant was very busy and quite loud. The truffle rolls with cultured butter are amazing. The Brussel sprouts were very good, but had a puddle of very sweet sauce on the bottom. Other dishes were a bit bland.
Birthday dinner for second year running! Love Villon!!!
Creative and unique new American fare. Good wine list making it perfect for special occasions. Friendly staff that provides excellent service. Large portions at an reasonable price.
Really great food. Great flavors and combinations. Highly recommend
The service was a little scattered but the tea selection was also limited - there were quite a few heavy teas
My husband and I really enjoyed our afternoon tea at Villon. The tea and the scones were the highlights of the service. The rest of the pastries were lovely as well - they're just not my cup of tea. ;) The scones and pastries were delivered in beautiful abundance on a two-tier stand. The opening course of finger sandwiches was nothing to write home about. If we return to Villon for afternoon tea, I might just order the tea and the scones and leave perfectly satisfied. The service was friendly and generous - we were offered complimentary prosecco along with our tea since we were celebrating my birthday! Afternoon tea is served in the lobby area, which is chic and beautifully decorated. Just mind where you're seated if it's a cool day as the wind blows right in off the street as other guests enter and exit.
We had breakfast at Villon, pre-matinee. The dining room is lovely, and the ambiance is great. Service was spotty (the waiter was attentive at first and then disappeared). The food was the real issue. We ordered The California and The Villon breakfasts. Th California was billed as eggs, avocado and farm salad. We ordered a side of toast. The 'salad' was literally two pieces of baby frisee on top of mashed avocado with one roasted tiny new potato. This was served with another half avocado on top of more mashed avocado. I love avocado, but this was just silly --and really wasteful. We had to send the eggs back to the kitchen, as they were undercooked (ordered over-medium), and the toast still arrived 5 minutes after the rest of the breakfast. Definitely won't recommend it.
Very nice setting and decorations. The food is good but overpriced. Same for the wine. If you want bread, the only option is two buns for $10!
Invited my English visiting cousin who’s very we’ll traveled. I new Villon would be perfect.
We stayed at the Proper last year and loved having such great meals right in the hotel. Yes, we are senior, love to go everywhere during the day and take it easy in the evening.
Nice restaurant and cool decor, the food was tasty and good presentation. The staff was awesome!
We order the chicken liver mousse which was amazing, as well as the croquets, cod and wagyu beef. Alllll suuuper tasty! Can't wait to be back!
Absolutely loved everything. I'm a vegetarian, and I had excellent options for every course. Interior Design and ambiance are fantastic. I will definitely be back soon!
This restaurant was AMAZING - we did the pre fix menu before seeing Hamilton . The food was excellent we did a wine pairing which was so fun and the service was impeccable - we would totally go back and recommend to friends
Everything about our dining experience was perfect!
Out wedding dinner was here. It was perfect!
