The food here is always fantastic. I usually get the first tacos, but this time I tried the black cod on white bean soup. Delicious!

Finding a restaurant that I feel is totally safe and offers excellent service, an incredible menu and a great ambiance is not easy to come by these days. Valle has done an amazing job across the board and I cannot recommend this place enough. The food is superb, the outdoor dining set-up is great and the service is excellent! Plus their staff practices all the safety guidelines necessary. I’ve been 3 times in the past two weeks!

Great food. Had a bit of an out-of-the-way table (surrounding by service tables, not pretty) but food and service were great.

Disappointed. I'm a fan of Gjusta, Gjelina & MTN so was excited to try Valle and was pretty bummed overall. I thought the food was just ok, nothing special. The Pescado dish was awful and the fish was not thoroughly cooked. The best thing we ordered were the chicken tacos. IMO not good enough to return to and would not recommend to others.

The food is amazing! And somehow the cocktails are even better. The guacamole was so flavorful and creamy. The salsas were delicious (we even asked for the recipe for one). The tortillas were perfect, the meats were unbelievable. When the food came out we barely talked to each other because we were so overwhelmed by the quality and flavor. Just a truly stellar menu. The service is pretty much what you expect from Venice, but other than that it’s great. Love the rooftop dining. Definitely my new favorite place.

Outstanding Mexican and Oaxacan food. Everything was delicious and perfectly presented. Mole verde is one of my favorite dishes and this is certainly the best I've had outside of Mexico and overall one of the best renditions ever. I would it at Valle Venice again any day. Congratulations!
