Wow, great bar, lovely atmosphere in this reastaurant with a service that cannot be bettered. Due to current water restrictions, you only get a glass refill when you ask. The food is served with flair. The butchers steak, hung for 28 days comes sliced on a bed of crisp green beans and potato... read more

We’ve been going to VC for over 10 year and have never had a bad meal; our recent visit continued its gourmet excellence. For our table of 6, we ordered several appetizers, shared them all, but the Ahi Tuna was hands down the freshest most vibrant selection. For our entries, the skirt steak was superb as was the Mahi Mahi.... More

Every dish we ordered was beautifully presented and tasted divine. We ordered all vegetarian, and for a meat eater, I was not disappointed. I would definitely dine at this restaurant again. Service and ambiance were all great.

We had dessert here one night. My son loves Creme Brulee and Villa Creek did not disappoint. Ambiance is nice, have outside eating that looks across the downtown park and they have a great wine list. They have a full menu but we only had dessert. We would definitely go back.

I really like Villa Creek. The food is always good, the service is excellent, and the ambiance is nice but not stuffy. You can go dressed up or casual, and fit in either way.

With fresh made French fries, a dollop of hatch chile "gravy" (not enough - need to get a side of it, too!), chopped cilantro and onions, this was a great way to start. But from there it was just ok. Pork chop looked cooked right - nicely pink on the inside - but was a bit tough for some reason... More

We checked out several places to eat before settling on Villa Creek. The food was excellent!!! My spouse had the Butternut Squash Enchiladas that were to die for. Great seasoning & flavor! I had the Sardinian Rabbit and it was knock your socks off good. Their side veggies were great also!! We will return here next time in town.

We visited the winery for a tasting and then dined at their restaurant the same day. Both experiences were memorable! Good food, wonderful wines and a great place to people watch. Be prepared for an atmosphere that's very noisy, though, when the place is busy.

Went here for my wife's birthday and it did not disappoint. I can't get over how good the butternut squash enchiladas were.
