    It's always a delight dining here. Besides the regular menu Valentino's has about 20 salad and entrees specials that change weekly. Also you can enjoy $6 cocktail as we did during happy-hour!

    We reserved through this site, but they didn't recognize it when we got in. The manager came over and talked to us, and found out we did have a table reserved. He accommodated us with a nicer table. Our waiter was very polite, timely, and visited us frequently, but was very awkward. Overall, they put a lot of effort in, but could work on organization.

    Took my girlfriend there for Valentines day and the food was good. The kitchen messed up the order and the server forgot to ask what type of potato and vegetable I wanted but I didn't mind. Since I work in a restaurant I understand sometimes kitchens can be backed up. Overall I would return but not on any special occasion.

    Jonathan
    Dined on 12/25/2013
    We were looking for something totally different to do this Christmas and selected dinner out at Valentino's with a few close family members rather than cooking the traditional Christmas dinner for everyone. Never having dined out on Christmas day we were not sure what to expect. They treated us like royalty. The food was excellent and the service was first class. I'm sure it was difficult for the servers to have to work on Christmas day, but you never would have known it. I would definitely come back again! This is definitely a restaurant to consider for a special occasion.

  • The Booth That Was Forgotten

    Dined on 12/25/2013
    Visited on Christmas Day with a party of three. Altough the food was good, this many not be the place to go to on a holiday. My party waited 20 mins. to be offered water and given menus as there was no wait staff assigned to our table. I had to track down the manager to ask for service. I actually said to the waiter who served our water, "this must the able that is always forgotten." Both booths on either side of us had been visited by a staff; one table arrived after us.

  • We were there for Christmas
    Lindy
    Dined on 12/25/2013
    We were there for Christmas Day dinner, so it was very busy, but managerial staff came to help out, and it was obvious all were doing their best to provide a pleasant dining experience. We had strip steaks...properly cooked and very good. Valentino's is a good, basic, reliable Italian restaurant. The menu is maybe a bit too large. It is a great place to go for casual meals, and their extended hours and OK neighborhood is not a problem. We were very grateful to be able to have a nice meal in a pleasant setting on Christmas Day when so few restaurants were open.

    This is a great place to dine at anytime. My parents love going there and thus, my husband and myself - my sons like taking their special dates there too - a tradition I guess you can say.

    Valentino Restaurant is one of the nicest restaurant in the area. It's very clean and handicap acceptable and the food is always delicious. no matter what you might order you wilI not be disappointed. My personal favorite is the Boadwalk Cesar Salad containing large steam shrimp, scallop, lump crab meat, croutons over a bed of greens with warm Cesar dressing topped with fresh grated parmesan and crack pepper, delicious. And it is huge. My parents love going there. They are now 82 & 83 years of age and as I do love they cream of crab and Maryland Crab soups along with the bread stick with homemade marinara sauce. Anytime you want a delicious meal; a choice of good wine at reasonable price - stop by; you will not be disappointed.

    Dined on 11/28/2013
    We were looking for an alternative to traditional Thanksgiving fare and gave Valentinos a shot.  As ex-Marylanders, we were all looking at their seafood items and tried both the crab cakes and stuffed flounder.  Both were excellent.  The crabcakes had tons of backfin and very little, if any filler.  We were served garlic bread and marinara sauce as soon as our group was seated.Great, expansive menu, sort of an upscale diner fare.  Generous portions, friendly service.  Will be back whenever we visit Baltimore.

    Once again Valentinos did not disappoint. Service was quick and efficient for the lunch scene. The gourmet salad baskets looked great in the display and the Edgar Allan Poe Basket tasted great. 9oz fresh jumbo lump crab cake over a perfect Caesar salad in a Tortola basket. Amazing! Just a real neighborhood gem.

    The crab cakes were amazing and my filet was cooked perfect. My guest had the frutti di mare full of seafood and herbs. The staff always make you feel at home as it is a neighborhood restaurant but still keep it professional. I need to stay away from the twenty different desserts they have displayed but my party had to have some. All were delish... Especially the cheese cake. As always at the end of our dining experience... complimentary fruit plates arrive. It's like Rudolph Valentino's little signature on a well enjoyed night with friends.

    Dined on 6/9/2013
    I'm going to sum up our experience at Valentino's with one sentence... Twenty six consistent years of good food and service! This is a family owned business that has grown from a small sub shop many years ago to one of the better known restaurants in Baltimore. The menu is huge and I've tried most of it. lol Italian, Greek, Seafood, Steaks, Subs, Sandwiches, Breakfast and sooo many desserts. The servers are always attentive whether you go for a lunch meeting, breakfast, dinner or a 3:00 am snack. I really enjoyed the new décor this past visit.

  • Delicious Dissertation of a Menu
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 5/31/2013
    In all my visits, I've had great meals. There are hundreds of choices on the menu. Service is superb. Diners receive the attention of not only the waiter, but also a drink refiller and a rather hunky manager greeting us at the table. Our visit was a birthday party for my husband. The food was delicious, as always. The service was fair, as if our group of seven was the first time a new waiter was given such a big group to serve. He was courteous and did his best, and I trust that further experience will improve his service. What was great was that the staff took the sugar free cake we brought (for diabetic friends), cut it and sang a robust rendition of "Happy Birthday." All in all, a great experience. I highly recommend Valentino's!

  • Our group returned specifically
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 3/17/2013
    Our group returned specifically to have the corned beef and cabbage special since it was so delicious last year. Unfortunately those who ordered it yesterday were very disappointed. The beef was tough and hard to cut. All the cabbage had the core attached and was uneatable. We understand why it was left on, but it needed to be cooked longer. They ate what they could and packaged what remained to take home and cook until the meat got tender and the cabbage could be eaten. Those of the group that didn't get the special enjoyed their meals. The wait staff was wonderful. We will continue to eat at Valentino's but were disappointed yesterday. A few unhappy customers can make a dining experience unpleasant if you know what I mean.

    We arrived early and was seated promptly, followed by timely delivery of our meal. The Valentine's Day special proved to be an excellent 2nd choice, I'd considered another spot. Bread sticks were great, prefer more garlic; my daughter loved them and the marina sauce was perfect in texture/taste. Thoroughly enjoyed the tasty/perfectly creamed Cream of Crab Soup, likewise my daughter with the French Onion; followed by perfectly prepared New York Strips -- well done & medium well. Sides were very flavorful -- fresh collard greens, sweet potato fries & coleslaw. The Lobster Tail was excellently broiled and tenderly juicy, crab cake was flavorful though it could have been broiled a little longer. Fresh fruit was very tasteful. Ample servings!

    Great food for a great price. Moderately long wait on everything which is what keeps the service score so low. Staff was very friendly and energetic keeping in tune with the bright atmosphere of the place, but the volume of take out must have kept the kitchen really busy. The Manger checked in on the table to make sure everything was great and fixed the small error he found even though we found it unnecessary. . Gratuity was included on the check fyi. We dine out often and will happily dine there again.
