Lisa Vanderpump’s Restaurant Villa Blanca Slammed With Critical Health Code Violations, Lisa Responds


Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump’s famous restaurant, Villa Blanca, has registered a series of health department violations, just six months after it was closed for three days for “rodents, insects, birds or animals,” RadarOnline is reporting.

The County of Los Angeles Public Health Department conducted their most recent inspection on February 2nd, 2014, and the violations are has follows:

  • Proper hot and cold holding temperatures
  • No rodents, insects, birds or animals
  • Adequate handwashing facilities supplied & accessible
  • Equipment/Utensils – approved; installed; clean; good repair, capacity
  • Floors, walls and ceilings: properly built, maintained in good repair and clean

The restaurant’s 90 rating is still an A, but with the five violations added, it has dropped from the previous number, 91, from the last inspection on October 1, 2013. A source close to Lisa tells the site, “The restaurant has an A rating and always complies to the health code.”

The closure of Villa Blanca occurred from September 16th to 19th, 2013, following an 86 rating the restaurant received with a violation of “no rodents, insects, birds or animals.”

September 16, 2013 VIOLATIONS:

  • No rodents, insects, birds, or animals
  • Proper hot and cold holding temperatures
  • Food properly stored; food storage containers identified
  • Equipment, utensils and linens: Properly storage and use
  • Floors, walls and ceilings: properly built, maintained in good repair and clean
  • Equipment/Utensils – approved; installed; clean; good repair, capacity
  • Nonfood-contact surfaces clean and in good repair
  • Adequate ventilation and lighting; designated areas, use
  • Toxic substances properly identified, stored, used
  • Plumbing: Plumbing in good repair, proper backflow devices
  • Permit Suspension

Villa Blanca was hit with more critisim by a woman that she served cardboard to a customer in her salad twice last May. When the diner at the restaurant found a piece of cardboard in her lobster and crab salad she promptly returned it, only to be given a second salad with another piece of cardboard mixed in with the greens. At the time, Vanderpump denied  the cardboard-in-salad controversy, saying: “This all feels a little strange.” She said Villa Blanca had served 27 crab and lobster salads that lunchtime “with no issue.”

I would just like to say I’ve been in Villa Blanca on more than one occasion and it was an enjoyable experience. The atmosphere was lovely.


Lisa took to Twitter to comment about the story. She wrote, “Old news.. villa Blanca had a ventilation problem last September we continue to have an A with the health department.”

Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
