Diner Reviews
  • "At a birthday celebration at MK we were treated royally. Food was great and service was attentive. At the end of our meal we were treated with a shot of coquito. Delicious!"

  • "This is my third time at this restaurant. We had problems each time we dined here. We came this time for a Saturday lunch. There were literally 8 tables open for lunch. Service took a long time. We were offered more bread, but not given butter. We ordered drinks (Sangria) which were so strong two of us had to send them back and they watered them down with Club Soda. They were undrinkable. They tasted like straight Brandy. They took one of the drinks off the bill. We ordered salmon and received four 2" x 1" cubes of salmon. We were all still hungry so we ordered dessert. Dessert came, no tea or coffee. It was an expensive, difficult meal to have. It was a lot of work to have lunch."

  • "We have dined at MK Valencia about 5 times since we discovered the restaurant about a year ago. We have always enjoyed our dining experience there. This time was a little different. We were to meet another couple there and they arrived just a few minutes before us. They were seated at a nice table but when we arrived we asked if we could sit in one of their very comfortable booths. Our server cordially changed us to a booth. While our server was explaining the "specials" to us he was called aside by a manager. When he came back he asked us to relocate to another booth as they wanted to reset some tables near the other booth. We had no problem with that but were taken by the unprofessional way management disrupted our server."

  • "The elegant contemporary setting creates an ideal backdrop for this great restaurant.. This was our fourth visit and each time is excellent. The sesame coated tuna is outstanding. My dining partner enjoyed the pasta with eggplant and ricotta…also wonderful. Dessert was fried banana cheese cake. Since we love to share, we both had delicious tastes to savor. We truly feel this is a great dining experience. We have met with friends from out of the area in the past and they agreed. On Sunday only a few tables were being served (the bar area was full), but we found it relaxing and enjoyable."

  • "Second time going, really want to give this place a chance but the wait staff in attentive at best. Takes entirely too long to get drink orders and once the food has been service they all but forget about you. The food is great though."

  • "My friends and I ate at MK Valencia on a Tuesday night. The food was very good - one of the group said it was the best salmon he had ever been served in a restaurant. We would definitely go back."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"
