Valles at 44
With our Italian heritage and authenticity we pride ourselves in delivering the perfect dining experience.
Main course was in a bowl, it should have been on a plate so that I could see and easily get to what I was eating. The food was OK, but not as good as I expected. Cheese was cold and hence very little flavour. I had to ask for butter twice before it was served. My empty glass was taken away but I was not offered another drink, I had to call the waitress over to get a refill. I was then over-charged.
Pasta is Served in a Bowl as standard and the only other menu item served is our Seared Tuna salad again like a nicoise fairly standard! our Cheese is always served at an ambient temperature, and apologies for no butter, butter on a cheese selection is never served in Italy, so apologies there. A conversation with staff to refresh their memories on your visit will be happening, so that we can get to the bottom of what is usually a slick and very enjoyable service, as per our 5 Star Tripadvisor
The first thing I have to say is I was extremely surprised at how small the bill was when it arrived. Because the food and the service was outstanding.
The menu is relatively wide with lots of different things. I had a tuna salad as a main and a rather interesting lentil starter. The chocolate cheesecake desert was fantastic!
The girl so as to our table and served us was really friendly and helpful. She gave us a wine recommendation that was something I wouldn’t have chosen and wasn’t expensive but was delightful.
I really can’t recommend this restaurant enough. It was really superb and not silly posh! I lovely ambience but not raucous. Brill
Lovely welcome and attentive, friendly service. Great food as always.
Food was fantastic service was fantastic the whole ambience perfect. We used the basement regularly but the new vales 44 can’t recommend it enough. my daughter had her 21st birthday this evening and the whole evening was just perfect. Thank you.
Amazing service and also very honest, chef did not want to cook the Sirloin steak due to a bad review so asked if a fillet would be okay rather then serving something he was unhappy with. - very kind of them to do so. Beautiful place and well staffed.
Great setting and excellent food at a very reasonable price and great people running the restaurant. Would highly recommend it
Very Kind words see you next time !
Excellent food and great service. Would recommend the restaurant to all my friends and will definitely be going back.
Lovely place, great service, food and location. Would recommend this restaurant and would go again.
Nice atmosphere, food, and service. It’s got a very ‘cosy’ vibe, reflected by a lot of the food on the menu. I enjoyed an evening there in June, but i imagine that this place would be especially appealing in the winter!
Enjoyed a fabulous celebration meal last week. Food was superb and the atmosphere and personal attention was excellent. The on line booking procedure worked well but it was frustrating that it wasn’t possible to speak to anyone in advance as the recorded message only directs you the website (despite several attempts).
Lovely relaxed space, excellent service and fillet steak was amazing
Beautiful restaurant with great staff and the food is outstanding
Very tasty food with an amazing presentation. Lovely atmosphere. Good service.
The service was excellent and the food was amazing. The flavours of each course were mouth watering. I highly recommend. The venue of 44 will once again become our venue of choice.
Made for an excellent evening following a concert.
First visit to the new restaurant, really could not fault it. Food and service both excellent.
Totally amazing food, the lamb tagine and chicken in red wine jus. The owner is always really friendly and takes the time to talk to you. Service was quick, cocktails lovely and great value for money. I would only say the acoustics make things quite loud, but after a cocktail or two you don’t seem to notice so much!
Excellent door, great service. Will definitely be going back and thoroughly recommend it.
Roast dinner was very good and a little different to a usual roast which was a pleasant surprise. Had crumble for dessert which was much too sweet, another of our party had the bread and butter pudding/panettone dish which was also too sweet. Everything else was great and the service attentive. Cost is quite high but the quality of the main course matched the high price. Will definitely be back.
Been many times. Food always excellent with friendly, efficient service
We thoroughly enjoyed the food, really tasty and well presented.
The staff and atmosphere was great.
Loved the choice and variety on the menu.
All tasted wonderful.
Friendly staff, quick service and the food was excellent. We went for lunch and the choice was very good. I would certainly recommend this restaurant.
Lovely food, relaxed setting & good service.........................................................................
Very attentive staff. Meal was perfectly cooked.
Sunday lunch was reasonable. The atmosphere, service, presentation were all very good (which is 3* on this guide). The vegetables were excellent, the portions about right but detracting from this, the amount of meat was a little meagre, certainly not generous and for the roast beef strip loin it was not possible to request rare nor medium rare. The Sanguinello Orange Marmalade Panettone desert was sublime.
I'd like to return but not for the Sunday lunch set menu. I'm looking forward to trying the main menu another evening as I do believe that this will be very good. In particular the main menu dishes look far more promising and combined with the evidenced atmosphere, service, presentation and fresh vegetables would make an excellent dinner.
Really enjoyed our meal at Valles at 44. Went for roast dinner for mothers day lunch, food and staff were lovely. Highly recommended.
We have never been disappointed when we have been for meals at Valles. The new venue is a lot bigger than the Basement was, so it is not as cosy, but it has its own charms. The food for Mothers Day was the same high quality as usual, with an excellent selection of wine to choose to accompany it. It was just what we wanted.
We really enjoyed our dinner at Valles. The menu isn’t very extensive but each dish is cooked and presented beautifully. Looking forward to our next visit.
A lovely restaurant with beautiful decor and menu and service great.
At its old premises it was small with intimate and attentive service. Just not replicated at its new larger premises. Shame.
The basement was very small, too small to make a great living out of, we are proud to be one of very few small business"s to be able to say we have expanded! Valles at 44 is a whole new concept offering stuzzichini "tapas" live Jazz acts in our luxurious large premises! We are only sorry we have taken what seems to be our previous diners living room away from them, fond memories of our previous premises but onwards and upwards, hope to see you again with our fantastic new outside space ! 44
It was just ok, wouldn’t not go back but not rushing back either. Everything was average. The food portions were small and I’m a small eater.
Brilliant food, brilliant service would definitely come back again.
Our first visit to the new location, and what a fantastic meal. As expected Thr food and service were fantastic.
We will definitely recommend it to our family and friends and we can't wait to return.
Went with girlfriends on a quiet Thursday eve. Welcoming service fab food. Defo come back again at weekends
Amazing 3 course Valentine's meal in a nice relaxed environment. Staff were very attentive and just appeared from nowhere whenever their services were required.
Amazing, every dish was full of flavour and colour...
great food, had fillet steak as main, perfection ! one of the best fillets in this area.
very attentive staff that tried to make dinning here a great experience however, some waitresses were very young and lacked experience in waiting but as Valles@44 has recently moved to this location I am sure with further training they will become more confident. overall a very nice dinning experience and I will certainly be back to enjoy the ambiance and great food offered, a great addition to the eateries this side of town. I wish them every success in their new venture, overall a very enjoyable and relaxing night, thank you.
A disappointing lunch time visit. I had previously been and eaten here in the evening when I couldn’t have praised it enough. Excellent food and service. Sadly this was not repeated at lunchtime. Menu choice wasn’t great. Myself and my friends opted for the chicken ceasar salad. In which I had one piece of chicken, my friends both had two.....hardly plentiful. None of us had any Parmesan shavings! Not what you would expect from a chicken Caesar salad. They did take some money off the bill, but that isn’t really the point. Service was on the slow side and when we did get to order coffees I was given a regular cappuccino instead of the decaf Latte I had ordered. By this stage I just couldn’t be bothered to make an issue of it!
I had recommended it as a destination to my friends and so disappointed we had such a poor meal. Lovely decor but need to improve some issues.
The food was good, reasonably priced, and the service was friendly and efficient.
