Another person came forward claiming that they too had a bad experience with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump’s high end Beverly Hills restaurant.
A dissatisfied customer claimed that someone at Villa Blanca changed the tip amount on her receipt by $2 after she left the restaurant; and now a second person had the same thing happened to them.
“I went to Villa Blanca in January with three friends and I was so annoyed after the terrible service and way the staff treated us that I did not leave a tip on my lunch bill. When I checked my account later though I noticed that someone had put a 20 per cent tip on my credit card receipt!” Nicole told reporters.
She said she contacted the restaurant twice and the second time she spoke with a manager who told her they would refund the money, but they never did.
“I contacted my credit card company and they thankfully removed the $3 tip that I didn’t leave,” Nicole said.
“I was so mad that they didn’t return the money and I couldn’t get a response from them,” she told reporters. “But, my credit card company helped me out immediately.”
Like Judy Spires, who talked about her bad experience at the restaurant, Nicole said she received poor attention too when she was there with her friends.
“We had a ton of different waiters, and when we said we wanted to take our leftover food to go they threw it out, basically they treated us like crap.”
Lisa Vanderpump reportedly has temporarily suspended the employee that allegedly made the charge on Judy Spires’ receipt and the manager of the restaurant said: “I’m sure this was an accident. This waiter is one of our best. I’m going to refund the money to the woman immediately.”
