Sometimes a villain showing up all cordial and hospitable is just plain fun. "Sure, we're mortal enemies fighting for the fate of the world, but that doesn't mean we can't be professional about it."

If Belkar shows up with a plate of risotto 'm expecting a TPK.

I mean, Dr No literally invited Bond to dinner.

"We talked right into it" is a great line.

+1 to this sentiment! Really clever idiom adjustment there.

Every time I ran Expedition to Ravenloft, I had the first encounter with Strahd at the dining room. No tricks, just a friendly gesture for Strahd to try and A) get to know the PCs, and B) try to talk them out of fighting him.

I have yet to have a party not respond with attack spells before the horderves are served. :P

On the other fang, since this happens first, the PCs never have all the special gear to fight him, so the encounter always went south real quick.

Not sure this would define professional, more... disinterested. Cept in this case, it's just random here.
