Tasting at the beginning was fabulous. Talia was our server. Super nice, knowledgeable, and energetic. Loved her! Staff was superb! I had porkchop with a delicious couscous. I have not eaten porkchop in about 5 years, my bad. The couscous was so delicious. Nick, our server was super friendly. We walked out with 5 bottles of wine. We are definitely going back!!! It was our date-day. Loved the experience. You won't be disappointed. Thank you Valenzao for a great experience.

Amazing food, far exceeded our expectations. You are basically just eating on the banquet tables in their banquet hall, but still well worth it to go for the great wine and amazing food.

Another wonderful experience. Was hoping to have Emily as our server, but she was not at work. The other staff were all competent if not as friendly as Emily. Definitely will visit again- soon👍🏽

Wonderful people that work there! We had a wine tasting first which was great followed by dinner. Overall dinner was very good. I would suggest adding better side dishes especially for the main course. We had absolutely delicious scallops over spinach. For my husband they were a little light. The options for a side were regular or sweet potato fries. A rice or potato would have been a much better side for such a dish. My veal parmigiana was very good also. Dessert was good but adding a small amount of whipped cream would have complemented the cheesecake which was just a slice on a plate with no amount of presentation. I would definitely go back. I feel like they may be making more changes to the menu as they evolve.

I would have given this review five stars however the wine tasting was the best part of my visit to Valenzano winery. The bar maid was knowledgeable, friendly and very interactive. The food was good but very overpriced for the amount you received.

Everything was amazing. Only wished, being that it was Good Friday, there would have been another non meat option. I was able to get the mussels appetizer as a meal which was fantastic. Nick was our server and he was amazing.

No ambiance and atmosphere. They need to change the tables for nice ones. They have tables I can rent for a party with chairs with table cloths. This venue is more appropriate for weddings instead of a restaurant. Food wasn’t really good at all and the wine is not as good. I have been at much nicer wineries with better food and ambiance.

Everything about Valenzano was extremely nice. The food and wine was amazing! The only thing was that we requested to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful weather on that day and we got sat inside. Other than that we would still go back again and bring others.

Great food and great service, however there is nothing to do after you’re done eating. It was a beautiful day so my group and I decided to walk outside with our wine as our waiter told us we could and got in trouble for walking too far. My sister was actually planning a small celebration here and opted for a different winery since there is not much to do or see here. Most wineries I’ve been to have music, games, or the ability to walk the vineyard at minimum. If you’re just looking to grab a bite and some wine I would recommend Valenzano, however if you’re planning on making a day of it I would definitely recommend making other plans!

We waited over a year to get through the pandemic it was well worth the wait, everything was above and beyond my expectation we will definitely be back again and also recommend your place to our family and friends. I couldn't of ask for a better meal and the service was over the top I am glad we got there Friday night for dinner again it was definitely worth the wait.

The facility from the outside looks beautiful. The initial entryway adjacent to their tasting room sets a nice mood and pleasant setting. Upon being walked into the dining area I was less enthralled by the ballroom area. It wasn’t so much bad, as it was an unwanted surprise. I felt as if I had gone to my uncles 65th birthday.

The staff were extremely friendly and offered excellent service. We would like to comeback and see outdoor dining if available.

Terrific local gem in south Jersey! Huge banquet hall, lots of spacing, great acoustics for the wonderful live music events. Surprisingly gourmet food - especially like the mussels, tomato-mozzarella sandwich, pasta entrees. Wide variety of wines - not all sweet ones, too. Happy hour wine is 4 bucks a generous pour, can't beat that. Will definitely return. 10/10

This was our first time for lunch we had the mussels in a garlic white sauce which was absolutely perfect. For main course we had the cheeseburger. It was so fresh with all kinds of goodness on it. Felt like a party in my mouth. The French fries were good and crunchy. We also ordered the Brussels sprouts as a side. I have never had so much flavor in my mouth all at once. They were the best I’ve ever eaten. Oh and did I mention the wine is the best in the area. Def recommend this winery.
