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.

Loved it!!! Very cute atmosphere, waiters never let our glasses of champagne empty! Food was delicious. Service was slightly slow but with 2 hours of champs it wasn't a big deal

Food good but service not great initially. We were a party of six, five starters arrived, the sixth starter only arrived after 20 mins and a conversation with the manager! After that the manager changed our waiter and the service was very good. Extensive and good wine list but not all wines on the list seemed to be available. The first one we ordered wasn't and we had to order another one.

Disappointed this time around with quality and service. Definitely not good value for money since the menu has changed and the move from champagne to Prosecco. The service was slow and the food average. Won't be going back any time soon. Pity as I used to really like this place.

I've been here a couple of times for brunch and I can't fault it. Service is spot on, food is delicious and the restaurant is lovely.

Handy location and great service.
Pre-theatre supper was not too busy and we were very comfortable in the much needed air-condition ed rooms.
A pear and endive salad was really lovely as was my dining partners mackerel with pickled beetroot.
Vegetable linguine turned out to be tasty - if a little heavy. My trout and al debate summer vegetables was well cooked would have been great had the chef not lost control of the salt - to the extent that I had to send it back.
It was replaced promptly and without quibble and a glass of wine removed from the bill.

Excellent and fast service, and good food. Can't fault it.
(((** 7 July 2017 by Patrick Smart from London
Nice ambience and unfussy service. However, the food was over seasoned and far too salty for my taste. This was particularly the case for the salt & pepper squid I had as starter - nice light batter but all I could taste was salt and gave up after eating about 1/3 of it.

Staff were really welcoming, but not over attentive. Pre theatre with à la carte menu worked well, probably as the restaurant was relatively quiet. Thank you for a lovely meal.
