I made this reservation for my bridal party to meet eachother for the first time and connect over wine and great food. We were late to our wine tasting but we fully understand we wouldn't be able to get the full time we paid for. The bartender was very rude and annoyed that we were late even tho we called ahead and was told it was ok and we would still be able to have the experience. The bartender carded one of the woman in my party who left her ID in another purse. I was upset about that because I prepaid and was telling my maid of honor that I was disappointed with the whole situation. The bartender immediately got rude with me. I told her I wasn't speaking to her or about her her response was but I can hear you. This girl was young enough to be my daughter and was very disrespectful and argumentative. We asked to speak to the manager who immediately removed her from behind the bar and we were then greeted with a very polite, attentive professional, handsome young man who took very good care of us. The waitress was the best and she treated us wonderfully. The wine was just outstanding and the prices were excellent and the food was worth the money. It started out the pits, but management quickly corrected it and my bridal lunch and wine tasting turned out to be a very fun experience. I definitely recommend this place

Hostess was very rude. We waited a while to be seated even though we arrived before our resv. We were seated without menus. Waiter took forever to even come to our table. Then gave us an attitude for having to get us menus. Wine was very good. Food was ok, but not for what they charge. And apparently they were "out of dinner salads." Hostess again came to the table after we asked for the salads, and was extremely rude and seemed annoyed we asked for salads that the menu said came with our meals. We would not go back for dining again. I would give it another try when outside is open, only for wine.

The bar tender for the wine tasting was really nice but the hostess were really rude. It seem like they were stand-off ish and not very approachable. We were seating in the middle of the floor which was pretty annoying because people were getting up dancing drunk with their mask off and I think it should be their number one priority to tell people if they are getting up out of their seats and dancing around other customers table they should put their mask on but of course none said anything. I’ve been here before and the stake was really good/ this night my steak was extremely chewy I couldn’t even eat it all. The waiter was not the best he was rushing everything. Overall I will give my experience a 2-3 star. It could of been better.

The food was good so was the wine,I just did like the table set up everyone was seated in one big room tables were 6 feet apart but with everyone in the same room it was loud and there were other people there that were obviously drunk and were arguing that’s the only thing that messed up the experience

This place was awesome. Started with the duck wings- they had a bbq-like sauce that was out of this world. Moved on to the Veal Parm. Never had it like this before. It was bone-in but butterflied. The wine was excellent. Will be back many times.

Great place to be on a Sunday afternoon! Temperatures are taken at the entrance and employees adhere to CDC guidelines for mask wearing! I had the pork chop and my hubby had chicken parmigiana. Make reservations! You won’t be disappointed!

I surprised my friend with a wine tasting and dinner reservation on 2/19 for her birthday. We were running 5 minutes late due to a winter storm but the staff were so friendly and understanding! The food exceeded our expectations! She had dietary restrictions and the chef was able to accommodate her needs. We both had the salmon along with vegetables. They were all so fresh and cooked to perfection! We are not new to valenzano wine but this was our first time at the winery and will not be our last!

The food was so good. The chicken parm is the best we have every eaten and is served with homemade pasta. The service was great. The waitress so so friendly and attentive. We love coming here and have recommended to many of our friends. The wine is also our favorite but the food is out of this world.

My wife and I had a fantastic Valentine’s Day experience at Valenzano Winery. Our server, Nick, was outstanding, the ambience was wonderful, the food was excellent, and of course, the wine was incredible. Everything was top notch all the way. A visit to Valenzano’s is a 5 Star experience in a very relaxing atmosphere.

Excellent choice for “Galentine’s Day.” The food was delicious, the burger really is life-changing lol. Our server was great and very helpful with all of his recommendations. There was a rowdy group nearby, but the staff handled things very professionally. I would definitely recommend and go back!

It all starts with the wait staff. They can make or break your experience. Our waitress Emily was outstanding, very personable and kind. The other staff worked as a team and were very efficient. The food was good, and the ambiance was great. Really enjoyed the wine. Bought a bottle to take home too.
