For the most part the restaurant was empty, but we were sat in between two very noisy tables. The food didn't suit the high price, and the server sounded like she practiced her lines too much. I'm not usually this critical of a restaurant, but I can't say the vibe meshed with me personally
Deliscious Food and Convenient to Downtown
Three of us recently went to LeVilla Chophouse on 4th Street and 18th Avenue SW Calgary. Sadly, we were the only diners in the restaurant on a Thursday. I hope this economic downturn doesn't end this restaurant. The server was very friendly and helpful. One friend was having trouble deciding between two entrees when the server said that she could switch out any of the side dishes for whatever she wanted. We all enjoyed our choices with two of us ordering the stuffed chicken breast and the other ordered steak. Well prepared and tasty.
Great food, poor service
Went with a group of 7 on a Saturday night. The restaurant was quiet, we were one of four groups. Appetizers and entrees were excellent, the cuts of meat and fish were excellent. Unfortunately, after our server deemed we were done, she disappeared. It took about 45 minutes from the time we finished our coffee to get our check, and process our payments.

Food was Okay but not outstanding. When I booked I did not realize this was a set menu which was disappointing. All had the steak which was okay but not exceptional. Extremely pricey for what was served. Waitress was friendly and attentive. Would consider going back to try the regular menu at normal pricing.
Room for improvement
The restaurant is in a great location, but needs some improvement...the main door squeaked loudly each time it was opened and closed, not much for wait staff, and really noisy.
The food was tasty but not extraordinary. Tried their three course selection and the price was alright but overall - I've had better. Maybe my expectations were too high?
LeVilla Chophouse - a great place
The LeVilla Chophouse is a go to restaurant. I'm a repeat customer, taking family and friends to experience a wonderful menu. This time, I took my family to LeVilla to celebrate my dad's birthday. The menu selection pleased everyone in my family. We appreciated the service we received. The average setting was $65/person (included an appetizer, main course, dessert & 2 drinks). A must go to.
It was not bad
We came on Sunday evening (6:30 pm) and were the only guests at the restaurant. A bit later two more people joined, but that was it for the night.
Food was OK, nothing extra special. I liked lobster risotto. We have ordered their super-special steak. It was good, but I had better steaks at Hy's, KEG or Saltlik.
We may be back, but haven't decided for sure at this point.
Our server (Emilio) was super helpful, friendly and caring. Special thanks to him!
We were a group of 9 and when we arrived the table was not set up, even with a reservation. Once we all ordered, the food came out in bits and pieces with my meal being the last to arrive quite some time after the others were served. Our waitress was helpful but distracted and it would have helped if she had been our only server. The food however was delicious; some of the diners said their soup was not piping hot but was tasty. Some ordered the seafood melt, others just the daily soup with a side of fries which arrived at the table some 5 mintues later than the soup. The fries were home made and delicious once they were served. The restaurant was not full so I am not sure why the service was so poor. Our waitress, in the end, comped our coffee orders which she did not have to do but I think she felt badly. I would like to return and try a dinner/lunch service to see if we fare any better on the service end.
Blew my expectations out of the water
We went to LeVilla before the Flames game last week and it was the perfect start to a date night. Everything on the menu sounded so delicious and we had a hard time choosing what to order. We shared a few appetizers and a steak and it was so good. Service was great and the server was so helpful and knowledgeable. Will definitely be going back there in the near future
Strange Service Experience
The food was excellent but our waitress would go MIA for awhile then other servers would come and see we had be abandoned and try and help. Towards dessert, our waitress reappeared, and started profusely apologizing saying a big party was keeping her busy. She just kept saying "you should come back, but not on a Saturday, we are so busy on Saturdays"
The food at LeVilla was incredible and well worth the price. I had the Steak Neptune, medium rare and it was one of the finest cuts of meat I've ever eaten. The restaurant is nice and quiet which is a very nice change. Our server was obviously new to serving so don't let those 4 stars scare you off, he did his best.
Still very good.
We have dined at LeVilla Chophouse several times since it opened. As always, service and food are very good. My only disappointment is that the lobster mac is no longer an entree/appetizer. I literally crave it between visits. Now it is a side, but it's not the same. Please bring it back as a main. Love the decor and atmosphere. I also love the Stilton salad.
Great food and good service.
Great food and the staff was very friendly. Indoor parking is a awesome plus for such a busy neighborhood. The atmosphere was not very quite but not too loud either. Id say its good for dates or even group night if you wanted to spend some extra cash.
The waitress went out of her way to address the sun light in our face during sunset without us mentioning it.
We were surprised to find that we had a discount as well at the end of our meal as there are some tickets by the front door that we accidentally grabbed on our way in.
Needs to train their servers better
My steak was way over cooked last time. Even though they replaced it with a medium rare and waived the corkage fee, my dinner came when most on my table were finished.
The foods were good this time. All dishes, both appetizers & entrees, were well prepared and tasty. However, our server was new in the business and struggled to open the bottle of wine. When she poured the wine, it got spilled all over the place and she did not carry a napkin. I helped by giving her mine. She forgot to bring me a new one. She didn't come back once to refill our wine glasses and we had to serve ourselves. They need to train their staff better.
Our visit was for a special occasion on a Friday night @7 p.m. The restaurant was empty. Having visited the other Le Villa on Sirocco Drive which is always busy - made us curious. The food was excellent. I had the worst Martini there - asked for a dry martini straight up - it arrived in an old fashioned glass with a half inch of gin in it - not classy or expected.
Could be better
We were a little surprised to find the place empty given that they are in a prime location and it was a Saturday night. Nonetheless out server was patient and attentive, only issue with her was that she could not adequately describe the chacuterie board. She was otherwise excellent at all else and even made a couple of good cocktails for us. My partner loved her steak diane and had no issues. The "signature" steak was grilled to my liking but had way too much bone and fat, not the best cut. An otherwise very average meal, no real complaints but not outstanding by any measure. It was just OK.
Excellent food, service and ambience.
This was my first time to La Villa Chophouse with a friend. We were both very pleasantly surprised at the ambience of the restaurant; our waitress was attentive but not annoying; she was very pleasant as well. The food was absolutely superb and we were not disappointed at all. Would definitely go back and recommend to anyone. It was my Birthday so it was a special occasion, which was a lovely surprise.
Tables too close to each other, and very small table. Stood at the front door for awhile as employees walked by. Service was slow and not very inviting. Food was ok. Ask for our bill and took forever. Finally got up and walk to door, someone finally came to let me pay.
This Restaurant is a must...... the food quality was amazing and the portions where huge. What a pleasant surprise. Our Server was spectacular. I had order the trout and OMG I have never had such a great piece of fish served over Crab Risotto. My Husband got the Bone in Tenderloin. What a treat that was. Should be on peoples radar.....
The menu has great versatility
One of the reasons I decided to try this place was the variety of options available to us. I have several food intolerances that can make dining out a challenge. I'm happy to say that I had several options and my husband also found great choices. We both enjoyed our meals.
An observation- those with arthritic knees will have trouble with the round booths, sliding in and rising were very challenging.
No chance against the kitchen
Dinner with friends for a relaxing dinner out. Was able to get a table with no problem on a Friday night that may have been the first sign as the place was virtually empty. Sat immediately waiter was a little nervous but helpful with the recommendations it took 30 min or more for appetizers to arrive. meatballs were very good as was the Camembert which shouldn't have taken that long with an empty restaurant. Two of us had the lobster & steak both not MR one blue the other well done with bernaise when it was requested without as we had already been waiting for well over an hour and starving we couldn't wait any longer. Two wait staff apologized, comped one bottle of wine (which markup is huge) Not wait staff's fault as the kitchen totally dropped the ball on this dining experience. Loved the other leVilla location but too much competition on 4th Ave to go there again.
A gem of a steak house
My family celebrated my birthday at LeVilla Chophouse and it turned out to be a great choice. We were greeted by a wonderful server, Jenny, who was cheery and professional throughout our meal and played a large part in making this a memorable occasion. She said the steak I was ordering (the tenderloin) would melt in my mouth, and it did. My wife said the lobster risotto she had was the best ever. And, the rest of my family enjoyed their steaks equally. A great place with great food and service.
La Villa Chophouse an excellent selection
The food and service in this restaurant were excellent. From the appetizers to the main course and dessert every food item was presented very well and had great flavour. Portion sizes seemed to be right on the money.
Although the prices were a little high, it was well worth it for an exceptional meal.
Slow service, avg food
It was a Tuesday, so it wasn't packed. It took for ever for everything, getting to take our drink order, bringing bread, bringing the appetizer, bringing the food, bringing water. And at every step the server would apologize, but not get it right the next time. The Halibut was overcooked, and the sauce felt from a can, and had dried up over the veggies, for $38 I'm not impressed. The appetizer (Coquilles St Jacques) was very good. We spent 2 hrs in this place (only two people) and not because we wanted, but because the service was so slow.

The meatball appetizer was nice except the meatball wasn't cooked all the way through. My friend ordered the fish with risotto which was not bad. I had the steak Diane and asked for it medium well, it can out medium rare which I could not eat and had to switch it with my friend. The beef didn't taste fresh. The flavors were good but the cooks were all under done.
