“Been Waiting To Try and Worth It”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

We finally made it with relatives. Although we arrived just about end-of-service time, we were nicely accommodated. When asked, the waiter "approved" the wine I asked about and was very right! I had the veal cutlet parmesan and was oh-so-pleasantly surprised! Most I've had were very heavy on the sauce. Not this one! A nice touch with the prosciutto too. Everyone had a great meal. We can't wait to make it back earlier in the evening to sit outside and enjoy the woods, music, and atmosphere. We're just lucky that the relatives live within walking distance! :)

“NEVER AGAIN.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2013 via mobile

This place has a killer setting outside deck dining very nice but that's all.
Service here is terrible ordered drinks and appetizer Drink's came 20 minutes after the food. Drinks then food that's a standard dining. Canceled our dinner order as we noticed that every table around us had been waiting a very long time and were already pissed. Don't need that cook making my food. I've eaten here before and the service was bad then and has gotten worse.
If the owner has good managers and service staff then this place will do very well. I won't be back til things are turned around. GOOD LUCK DEER PARK VILLA

“Stunning outdoor wedding venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2013

Thus was a beautiful venue for an outdoor wedding. The redwoods were a perfect backdrop for a memorable event. Staff quickly transitioned from seating for 180 for service to tables for dinner and space for dancing. Food was excellent as was service. Though the bartender wasn't too skilled on mixed drinks.

“Expensive But Worth It”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2013

Nice atmosphere in an elegant wooded setting (hosting many weddings). Food was exceptional, though expensive. Service was top notch (the owner even let me print my airline boarding passes in her office!). Party of eight. We had the rib eye steak, flatiron steak, sole, soup, and cheeseburger. All were outstanding. One of the all-time best dinners!

“Off the Beaten Path”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2013

Not the easiest place to get to, but once there you will experience a beautiful setting and exceptional food. Usually only open for dinner, the restaurant does open for special events, special occasions, weddings, banquets, etc. I was invited to a special event here or I probably would not have learned about it. We were a group of about 50 and the staff was friendly and very efficient. Obviously, they've done this before!
