Excellent food, service and venue for a nice evening out or brunch. Second to none.

I'm only giving it 3 stars because our waitress and appetizers were great.

My cousin recommended this place for our anniversary dinner, and everything was phenomenal! Gary is an excellent server and is very knowledge of the food. We followed every suggestion he offered and he did not disappoint. Every dish was fresh and delicious, excellent presentation, and exemplary service. You have to try this place!

I called and made a dinner reservation for a "romantic" table for my wife and I but when we got there the host at the door told us they gave the seat to someone else because they had a lot of "walk in" customers. So apparently reservations don't mean anything. However, we did have a wonderful waitress and the food was nice. The atmosphere is not as romantic as I would have liked but my wife still enjoyed it and that's what mattered most to me. I give this place 4 stars because the waitress was awesome and the food was good.

Hello, Me and my husband were traveling to Lake Charles to see family and they mentioned The Villa Harlequin. We wanted to sit at a table but they were very busy! (Recommend a reservation). We decided to sit at the bar and I am so glad we did. We were greeted with a smile by the bartender Jordan! She was very busy as well but never once made us feel like we needed to rush and answered all of our many questions. She was as very knowledgeable about the menu and drinks! We asked her recommendations on what to order and she suggested the special pan seared duck breast and her favorite dish the Surf and Turf. We decided on the that and the lamb! It was amazing. Definitely stop by and give this place a visit you won’t be disappointed!


The food was good, but the atmosphere and noise was horrible. The bar is right next to the dining tables, and you literally could not hear yourself think. Service was ok, but food took a long time.

I loved the Harlequin & have been enjoying their food for over 35 years. My family has had a number of dinner parties at the Harlequin. I also loved Italian Villa & ate there frequently. They have combined two amazing restaurants and offer great choices from both with several new menu options. It is pricey but worth it. Courteous, attentive & knowledgeable staff. I highly recommend.

Possibly the best meal I’ve ever had. Gary is a treasure. Perfect drinks.

Been here many times.. chef needs to learn how to make veal.. the chefs version sucks. $180.00 bill and I'm looking for a sandwich. Waitress was 5 star.. won't be back. Tell chef to dine in NYC or Vegas. Chef sucks.. sorry..

Great cozy atmosphere, nice staff, and amazing food. We started with the BBQ Shrimp app, superb and then we both had the eggplant parmesan, best I've ever had. I'll definitely be back

Came to The Villa on a friend’s recommendation for our 5th anniversary -awesome atmosphere. The food was absolutely delicious. We realized after that they forgot our salads, but no big deal because our veal Parmesan and ribeye were delightful! Cool atmosphere and location!
