    Run don’t walk to Valbella’s ! Service was incredible, thank you Carlos ! If you’re a sushi fan, order the Yama Roll - exquisite ! Linguine Frutti Di Mare was outstanding ! Every course, each dish, was fantastic. Tough to get a table during the week, but it opens up on the weekends. Incredible combination of location, ambience, service and food quality - one of the City’s best kept secrets ! A DON’T MISS.

    This is a very expensive restaurant for what you get. The wine list did not have any reasonable priced wines. The food was at absolute top dollar. Four appetizers, four entrees, two desserts and a bottle of wine for four people was just under $1000. In my experience, that's quite high. Even for New York and even for the best restaurants serving Italian fare.

    Enjoyed yet another delicious meal at this amazing restaurant last night. From the moment you walk through the door, David & Rosey treat you like family. Their warm smile and truly authentic personality makes Valbella even more special! Maria the bartender is a true legend, her personal touch on every drink she prepares sets the tone for am enjoyable even. The service team hands down goes beyond approach to continue the love David and Rosey give from the beginning . Their attention to detail is a true testimony of the pride Valbella has for their great reputation. The food as usual was superb! Everything was cooked with perfection and executed with a professional touch! Valbella by far is a quintessential must when deciding where to dine in Manhattan, trust me you will not ever be disappointed! I will FOREVER sing the praises of this restaurant,its owners and staff!! Thank you once again for making the night over the top special for my wife and I. Until next time, be well and thank you! Dan & Donna R.

    Valbella At The Park is the epitome of elegant, Northern Italian fine dining. The ambiance is stunning, the service is incredibly on point without being oppressive and annoying. The menu is diverse and imaginative while being orgasmic. If you want to impress your guests, lunch or dinner at Valbella At The Park is the way to go. Highly recommend.

    Great food, great service… pricey but not over the top for a place of its caliber. started with some short rib ravioli and then porterhouse steak for 2 which was delicious and filling . Don’t drink wine but the list was about 25 pages with wines in the thousands . desserts are legendary, especially the napoleon. i would definitely go back

    The quality of the food has gone down hill. The menu was inaccurate of what was served. The heirloom tomatoes were hothouse cheap tomatoes. The beet salad was a pile of lettuce with minimal beets and hothouse tomatoes vs yellow grape tomatoes that were listed on the menu. The pork chop was good, however it came with French fries and ketchup. The server said it came whole diced potatoes as did the menu. We have dined at Valbella’s for many years with Toyota & Lexus and frequently on our own. Unfortunately we will not be back due to the decline in quality of food.

    Valbella was the perfect, romantic spot after strolling around Bryant park. Definitely order the Napoleon for dessert. It is made for 2 & just delicious with a cappuccino. The servers were all very attentive and on point with dish clean up and utensil changes. The ambiance is very pretty. It’s almost like 3 restaurants in one with the covered porch/patio, main dining area then the upstairs. Beautiful spot, delicious food and good ambience/crowd.

    We ordered some basic pastas and they were all bland. The pasta and marinara was extremely watery and when we asked about it the waiter said that's how is made. The penne vodka had no taste. Service was mediocore at best. It seemed like the waiter didn't want to help or answer any questions. Definitely will not be back here.

    Best Saturday night with friends! We were seated in the magical, beautifully decorated rooftop. Started with the fabulous Valbella cocktails then onto the amazing sushi (best in NYC!). The four of us each had different entrées which were artistically plated, delicious and cooked to perfection! The penne vodka, chicken parmigiano, veal chop & homemade fresh pappadele special are a MUST try. Love this gem of a restaurant & the staff so warm and welcoming.
