Delicious Summery meal from beginning to end. The Gazpacho was so tasty, slow cooked salmon salad was beautiful for a Summers day and the chocolate fondant was to die for. Thank you

A striking food emporium in a grand Edwardian building, Villandry St James’s is a continental-style French Mediterranean restaurant. All day dining can be enjoyed in the sophisticated restaurant dining area, or in the more relaxed café space.

Sumptuous dishes on the Villandry menu include pea and ricotta risotto, grilled sea bass with salsa verde and pomegranate, and chicken supreme marinated with green harissa. Melt-in-the-mouth steaks are 28 day-aged and served simply with a choice of sauce and sides, while desserts include a wickedly tempting warm chocolate fondant with salted caramel ice cream.

Evoking an elegant bistro-style ambience with striking red leather banquettes and classic French décor, Villandry in St James’s offers a wide range of breakfast dishes, a laidback brunch and a select pre-theatre menu. Classic cocktails partner sophisticated wines, and there’s an enticing cake counter.

Simple modern European cuisine is executed perfectly at London restaurant Villandry, which also offers private dining. Piccadilly Circus Tube Station is a 5-minute walk away.

    The service was appalling - our orders were not taken down correctly and the wrong main course dishes were brought to table, which had to be sent back and the correct dishes then prepared entailing substantial delay. There was also a problem with the dessert orders, which were not taken down correctly and caused further delay while the missing dish was prepared and brought to table. The result was that we were rushed for time, greatly detracting from our enjoyment. We were not given any explanation or apology. The restaurant was not busy so there could be no excuse for this lamentable service. I shall not use this restaurant again.

    Very disappointing this time. Portions far too small for price

    The good was tasty and fresh (I had a salad). The portion size was just right and the presentation good. The staff were friendly.

    food was very nice but the service wasn't great and the white wine wasn't cold enough, despite asking for a colder glass.

    I give it top marks. if I had to identify a single feature that struck me it was the "service". Efficient, welcoming, professional, warm, helpful, quick - and precisely the right balance between formality and friendliness. It is definitely not a criticism but my firm preference would be to do away with the piano player. It is unnecessary noise and means everyone has to speak louder to hear each other which in turn creates more unnecessary noise.....

    We had a perfectly lovely experience dining here off their pre-theatre menu. The staff was friendly, helpful and extremely accommodating. The atmosphere was elegant and sophisticated, perfect for an enjoyable meal along with live music. The music was a bit loud at first, though the talent was great. It got better as the restaurant got busier. The food was beautiful, delicious and equisite. The portions were appropriate. The wine list and availability of wines by the glass was absolutely dreamy. The value for your money is unmatched in similar quality. We will be recommending this restaurant to everyone we know. Absolutely brilliant!
