Beautiful setting, below par service and average (at best) brunch fare at an exorbitant price. It was the polar opposite of value and I could not be forced upon to recommend it.

VILLARD restaurant is located in one of the most beautiful interiors in NYC — a Gilded Age mansion from the 1880s. You are surrounded by painted murals and carved and gilt decoration by some of the best American artists of the late 19th. Prices are Sky High but the food and experience was truly superior. My wife and I had the Lemon Marscapone pancakes and Avocado toast — beautiful presentations and incredibly delicious. A MUST to celebrate a special occasion and make it truly special.

The restaurant was empty, except for my party and another table of two people. It was strange for a location that is so ideal, and for a restaurant that comes with such fanfare - particularly because it was such a beautiful day. I asked our waiter about the lack of customers and he said it was unusual.

The staff was courteous, the food was good overall, and the decor is truly one of a kind. The place has such potential, but we did not see it in any grandeur because of the lack of an atmosphere.

Extraordinarily overpriced, extremely low product for the price. Purely paying for the ambiance and venue, which is high end. $9 coffee and $16 grapefruit is excessive.

Food was unremarkable. No better than what you would find at an upscale diner. The service was ridiculously bad. We waited 20 minutes after sitting before we received water and coffee. When we later could not find our waiter, we asked another waiter for the check. He literally lifted his palms and said "Not My Job". The hostess was lovely and apologetic, and the room itself is beautiful. All in all, you would be better off avoiding this over-priced, poorly staffed tourist trap.

We went to Vallard to celebrate one of our children's 18th birthdays. From start to finish, Shoyeb C. and the entire staff made this perhaps the nicest brunch we can remember! Not only was the meal fantastic, but the service was truly exceptional. Shoyeb personally chose the birthday cake, accommodated a rush meal request, and brought in a colleague to answer questions about the hotel's history. Moreover, the food was absolutely AMAZING. As promised, the roast chicken and the steak and eggs were incredible, and my husband said his Eggs Benedict were the best he has ever had. We truly can't wait to go back.

The Gallery Room is beautiful and the service is fabulous. The food looked prettier than it tasted, My tea was warm, but not hot and the avocado toast is better almost everywhere else. All that said, the experience was classic and I would try again.

Everything was amazing and server was so sweet but they had a man walking around serving OJ & coffee, poured a cup of coffee for me after I even said no. Thought they were being generous until the bill came. We had almost $30 in drinks on our bill that we did not know we were being charged for (the prices were not on the menu either).

The only reason I give this 4 stars instead of 5 is the service. And I’m not saying that the servers are not nice, lovely, friendly people. They are just slow as molasses. The ambience at this restaurant is beautiful and the food is unparalleled best brunch in New York City. Not huge portions, just perfect food.
