Food was very good. Service was amazing. There was A private party upstairs so the noise level was very high, and we couldn’t hear each other speaking.

Valbella is a great place to have a romantic dinner. Everything was great except it is a little pricey.

Other than that, I would recommend this restaurant for any special occasions.

The drinks were WAY overpriced and added to the food subtotal and taxed. Alcohol should be seperated from the food and not taxed. The tax should be incorporated in the cost of the drink already. This is double dipping and a way of inflating the overall bill to pad the tip. I complained and was told "This is the way we always do it." Well, its plain wrong! I wish someone would crack down on this illegal practice once and for all. Too many restaurants do this and OpenTable should pressure them to stop or remove them from their website.

We celebrated a teen Birthday with family and had a party room to ourselves with extraordinary service, terrific cuisine, great spirit, and elan. The menu is filled with quality choices and presentation did not fail. Carrying off parties is no easy task and Valbella showed this could be done with style. Bravi Tutti !!!
We will definitely be back for a more normal dinner; there were too many wonderful dishes to sample when time and circumstance permit - along with an excellent choice of wine (for the adults). p.s. don't miss the Napoleon made to order for however many are interested. Delicious.

We had an absolutely wonderful lunch. The service was impeccable. The diver scallops with fois gras was an appetizer worth writing home about. I really liked that one can order a half portion of pasta for lunch. Truly my only tiny complaint was the red sauce for the lobster ravioli which was a bit underwhelming given the price point. Very comfortable seating with ample space between tables.

Wine list was astonishingly badly designed. Extraordinarily overpriced wines at all price levels, absence of anything decent in the $75-125 range, vastly more reds than very small selection of whites, and only silly pedestrian wines by the glass (marked up 4.5x!). Seemed to be designed for the B&T/Sopranos crowd, which may be their target market. But don't then label on own website and Open Table as hip or Northern Italian, when actually neither.

We went here for Valentine’s day. They tried to fit too many people into the restaurant, which ruined the experience. Our server was very nice, but our food took a very long time. The pasta was excellent, but the steak was mediocre. They brought in low quality tables to fit the enormous crowd and our table wobbled all night. We were also very close to the tables around us, which was very unpleasant. A lot of people were complaining about the service. There were simply too many people for the kitchen to handle.

Very beautiful restaurant with comfortable tables and space between them. The service is spectacular- asl for Onder. The food is good but not as superb as the ambiance and the service therefore it’s on the Procrustean side. Owner is present and it shows!

I didn’t have a good experience and disappointed with this establishment. Services are mediocre for a high-end restaurant. This was my wife birthday’s dinner, which has been notice on reservation, not a words from server when we finally have our dessert. Server constantly coming to the table asking do we want dessert while we had just finish our main entrée and enjoying our dinner drinks. When asked what kind of dessert (bear in mind, dessert menu not existence) he will name around 7 to 8 so fast that we have no clues. Food were tasteful and well balance, cocktail drinks are excellent, Martini is perfect when it is cold and chill on glass.

Best NYC Italian Restaurant (outside of Little Italy) located in the heart of the meat packing district. We had the veal and shrimp entrees along with the best Caesar salad ever ( topped with excellent slice of Parmesan cheese. Waiter was timely with our cocktails and stayed on top of our table throughout the night. Reservations are a must and they may ask for a credit card upfront. Look forward to our return.
