This is our third time back to MK
Valencia and I have to say the consistency of the service, food, and everything else about our dining experience has been very positive. We brought friends with us this time and they were just as pleased as we were."

It took them three and a half
hours to serve my girlfriend and I. We both thought the food was good, but that might be because we were so hungry after waiting 45mins to an hour between each course of our four course dinner. I will never go back there again."

We arrive for our 8pm reservation
and are promptly met. We are taken to our seats, that two others are already sitting in and they are moved. We order drinks and our 4 course meal, they drop off bread for us, but no knives to butter it. By the time we got our waiter to bring knives (asking twice) the bread is hard. They drop off two appetizers, that were not ours, that sat in front of us for 5 minutes before they took it back. We get our first course around 1 hour mark. 2nd course at 1'45". Order a beer and takes another request to get. At 2 hours, we request to take the rest of our meal "to go", but they bring out our meal on plates 10 minutes later. We wait another half hour till we can finally pay and leave. Terrible service. Unhappy."

We have dined at MK Valencia on
three occasions and each time the experience leaves us looking forward to our next visit. The ambiance, the meal and the service are all worthy of praise."

My wife and I have visited the
restaurant several times and the place always impresses. The waiter offered cocktails made with a white whiskey infused with apple which sounded interesting and tasted even better then described!!! One of the specials that night was surf and turf and while I've never been a fan of lobster the ribeye sounded good. I'm not sure how they prepared the lobster but it was the best I have ever tasted. My wife had the ahi tuna which was also prepared to perfection! MK Valencia is outstanding and we strongly recommend it."

Waiter knew our first time there,
Champagne was flat and the mussels had no flavor on the seafood platter. Steamed or not..."

The food was delicious and our
servant was great. I went with my boyfriend for the first time and we enjoyed ourselves, it was not too crowed and the food and service was great."

Generally this is one of my
favorite places. As always the food was EXQUISITE. However, when we arrived at 7 we were seated in the bar rather the restaurant side and told there would be a party with loud music on the restaurant side beginning at 8. At 7:35 a DJ began playing music which was so loud it was unbearable. If the owners want to have rent out for parties like this they should not subject their regular customers to this kind of annoyance by seating them in the bar. Several people walked in once the music had started and walked right out. We would have done the same had we known."

Hard to believe you are not in the
City. Beautiful place, great food and good service. Will return soon."

The restaurant is gorgeous,
beautiful finishes and lighting. Our pan seared sushi grade tuna was perfectly rare. The duck breast was tender, really flavorful and cooked to perfection, crisp but fat free. Accompanying vegetables were fresh, colorful and very good. The house salad was pretty to look at and nicely presented. Although the décor is austere, the vibe of the restaurant is casual and comfortable."

This upscale restaurant offers
fine food in a New York type atmosphere served by an attractive and attentive wait staff at fair prices.Bottles of wine are also reasonable. Deserves more attention from those seeking a special evening out!"

We have eaten here many times.
Each time the experience is wonderful. Their chef is amazing. He makes fabulous dishes and plates them expertly. The desserts are incredible also. The bartender whips up the usual and the unusual. The servers are not only friendly, but they help you with any questions or indecisions. They've added a Sunday brunch which we haven't tried yet, and Jazz Saturday nights. Not sure if Saturday night Jazz is all the time. I "liked" them on facebook so I get to know what's going on. If you haven't tried them, you should. Don't have to cross the river to find gems. We do have them in our own backyard."

The nicest decor in the area. It
is contemporary and inviting could easily fit in NYC or Vegas. The same applies to the menus from the list of cocktails through desert, there was a significant amount of time spent developing them. Several unique and great cocktails; with the Moscow Mule becoming my new favorite. In an area where good Skirt Steak abounds this presentation exceeds all others both in flavor and appearance. The Duck and Risotto also excel. The Chef uses spices in a creative way that enrich the offerings without being overpowering. This restaurant could easily become my new favorite. I defiantly recommend this place!!!"

Went to have dinner with my
husband and our daughter for my husband's birthday. Even though they were understaffed due to unexpected large groups of customers, the waiter Micheal was terrific and made our night very special. Would recommend this restaurant to all my friends. The ambiance is fabulous and you feel as if you went to a ny restaurant. Great night."

Italian/American with an upscale
decor, a varied menu, and good food. Outdoor dining is available in the back."

Nice local restaurant. The food
was high quality but the service was a little lackluster compared to what I expected. This may have been due to a newer waiter (very young and couldn't properly pronounce Quinoa, which was one of the specialties) with limited experience. Still, this reflects a little poorly on the restuarant. I will probably give them another try but the service definitely needs to match the food."

The chef designs and creates
dishes. It's not an ordinary upscale restaurant. It is an extraordinary upscale restaurant."

Well prepared, creative food,
especially the fish."

I have eaten at MK Valencia
several times and have never been disappointed. The food is interesting and prepared as ordered.At our last visit my husband and I shared the Duck Spring Rolls and the Tuna Tartar. The Sesame Tuna is excellent as were the Short ribs. I especially recommend the Brulee Trio for dessert. The servers are attentive and the decor is very upscale. it's worth a trip to Ridgefield Park ."

This was my second time there. The
food was great, but due to very inclement weather, the energy level was low. My first time there was more energetic. It gives a NYC feeling and so I returned. I would definitely return again."

Once again we had a great meal
this past week-end, went with friends who'd never been and they were very impressed with everything they ordered. The service was fine though the servers do need to stop saying "You guys"as much - at least for customers older than they are! The appetizers are fantastic, and the ability to order half-sized pasta portions is great, especially since the half-sized portions are perfect after the generously- sized appetizers. Will be back,soon I hope"

Let me start by saying we love
this Restaurant. We have been there many times for dinner or even just appetizers. The food is always good. The service is always excellent and it is actually a good value. Not this time. We went for Mother's Day brunch and we were very disappointed. The food was a huge step down from its normal fare. Aside from the decent raw bar, the food was all wither overcooked or just not very good. The prices were inflated by an extra $10 due to the day and service was not nearly as good as it usually is. We will be back, but probably not for brunch."

Recently had a birthday
celebration at MK Valencia and it was GREAT! First, the restaurant is beautiful. The decor, the architecture and the combination of textures is unique. Very relaxing, yet elegant. Five of us ordered three appetizers and five entrees. Each dish was delicious. The seafood and fish were fresh and perfectly prepared. The wait staff was friendly, knowledgeable and fun. All the dishes were beautifully presented and not one of us had a single issue with any part of it. It was truly a perfect dinner party! Thank you!"

Over all the restaurant was good,
spacious seating, low lights, however my entree and salad not so good. I ordered the cesear salad which was watery and my tuna which I asked for rare was well done. The other three in my party seemed to have ordered more satisfactory entrees that I. The mussels appetizer was very good, as was the chicken and skirt steak, howeve the lasagna was a bit rich, made with a creamy red sauce."

there... don't know why it isn't busier?! food is nice but 2 people in our party complained that there entre was too salty!! And your bartender didn't know how to make a GIMLET!"

A midtown NYC restaurant in a
surprising place. Gets a bit noisy, but the food makes it worth it - although once in a while, there's a bit of a disappointment but it's addressed quickly. We will return."

Went to MK Valencia for Easter
Dinner. The restaurant is beautiful. Very modern and sleek. The bar area is pretty with its faux fireplace! The food was excellent. The warm mushroom appetizer was delicious. The short rib entree was very good. Try the sampler dessert, the cheesecake was a standout. Service was excellent. It was a pleasant surprise to have a Manhattan-like dining experience in quaint little Ridgefield Park."

Talk about a neighborhood gem -
this spot was simply outstand and they also offer special on wine tasting in the bar on certain nights of the week ~ I had the short ribs and the duck spring rolls - I recommend both highly - I only wish that I had room for dessert but the portions are so ample I could not find any way to squeeze dessert in to this fabulous meal - the service was excellent and also very friendly! Be sure to give this place a try - you will not be disappointed."
