Downstairs in the wine cellar is where many people hold private parties of various sizes,and what a splendidly beautiful room it is, done in polished wood, with a lovely fireplace, the tables impeccably set, the stemware thin, the temperature geared to the maintenance of the wine.
Also an outstanding feature of the wine cellar is a heated granite table that can accommodate up to sixteen guests.

Made a special request to be seated on the wine cellar which was confirmed upon arrival. After giving them my coat they informed that there was no space and the previous party hadn’t left. Nothing was done to try to make any accommodations. Seated on a nice section but not what I looked forward to.
Valbella is always such a wonderful evening out with friends. Upscale bar and ambiance. Service outstanding, food delicious and always consistent. Menu has a wide selection. Something for everyone. Hostess and Valet always welcoming.
My favorite restaurant in town! My family has been going there for 25 years. The staff is amazing! They are warm, welcoming and will do anything they can within reason to accommodate your tastes and dietary needs and wants.
Outstanding!! First visit will definitely return with friends and family, excellent venue for client meetings!!
Ambience was amazing, service was excellent and the fireplace table was exceptional. Unfortunately the food was mediocre at best and disappointing for such an establishment… bland and dull are the best descriptions with no sizzle and little to no seasoning. The chocolate soufflé and espresso martini were excellent though. Also ordered a bottle of 2015 Antinori from the wine list and without telling me they brought a 2017, hate when restaurants do that bait and switch especially without at least telling you they’re substituting.. not what a supposed top restaurant should do.
Pretty atmosphere with the roaring fire!
Valballa haas become one of our favorite restaurants, for quality of food, service, ambience.
Excellent dinner ….service was mostly attentive but got a little slow with desserts and bringing the check
First class, 5 star service
My best friend and I come for our birthdays almost every year! It never disappoints!
faleminderi nick for a wonderful new year’s eve!!!
The food and service was great! We celebrated a wedding anniversary with friends.
Once again, Valbella exceed expectations on every dimension. Starting with the perfect martini at the little bar to the meal that began with a small sampling of fresh raw oysters, then proceeded to a fantastic lobster appetizer with a wonderful orange sauce, and then a small, very fresh garden salad with a delicious mustard vinaigrette dressing, followed by a surprise little coconut sorbet intermezzo to clean the palate, followed by heavenly homemade fettuccine done in a light cheese sauce with a super-generous portion of the most aromatic Alba white truffles, followed by a rib-eye steak that was better than any steakhouse, and finally followed by dessert - a traditional and super classic Grand Marnier souffle and cream sauce that was done perfectly as well as a Napoleon cream layer cake. Of course the wines were equally stunning including a 2015 Batard-Montrachet and a 2016 Barolo that were out of this world. Can you tell that I was more than pleased. What a gastronomic delight! PS Nick has put together a wonderful team that loves what they do and as a result, the service was impeccable. I mean impeccable! Thank you Valbella for a wonderful, memorable experience.
Magnificent food, high quality service, beautiful atmosphere — a truly wonderful experiencd!
Birthday celebration was top notch and memorable. Highly recommend!
Valbella is the best Resturant in the Tri state area. Great food and unbelievable service.
Incredible meal and the service was top notch! A special experience!
I debated even writing a review but honestly, this was one of the worst dinners I have ever had and a complete waste of $100 and it's been nagging at me all week.
I went by myself on my birthday as I'm in from out of town. The maitre d was pleasant but the fun stops there. I went early and the restaurant was practically empty so you'd think staff would try and engage me in any sort of small talk but they do not. The bartender was curt and unwelcoming. I moved to the dining room where they sat me in the middle of the room alone and seated everyone else against the windows around me which felt awkward. The waiter was professional, but cold and did not speak to me other than to take my order. Insult to injury, the tomato soup had absolutely no flavor it was like drinking store bought tomato sauce. The veal dish I got was soggy and the portion was insulting for price. I left without dessert which is my favorite thing. It was really the point of taking myself out for my birthday, which also no one made any recognition of, but I could not leave fast enough. As someone who works in fine dining, im stunned at the experience and that this place is so well rated. I can only assume this is the special treatment they give single diners
Incredible service as usual. A restaurant that still knows how to train and manage staff. Food was excellent too. Had a veal chop that was cooked to perfection - Should be the standard. Not a dessert person but could not resist the almond and poached pear tart. All magnificent!
Always the best place to eat in Greenwich. Nick and Lino are the most welcoming hospitable hosts.
A true 5 star experience!
Valbella is always on the money. Service is the best in the business and the food is outstanding. Love this place
We are from out of town and visiting family in Riverside. Found Valbella from an Internet search and selected because it was close to our hotel. Clearly a restaurant that has a loyal clientele as many were greeted by name. We had a wonderful dinner and the Bronzino was some of the best I've had. Restaurant team was very attentive, friendly and the atmosphere was very festive with the beautiful holiday decorations. When we are in the area again will definitely make a repeat visit.
We moved from NY to California, but every time we come back we have to visit Valbella's. We got together with our very good friends and their kids last night for a very memorable meal - everything was superb, from the raw oysters to the pasta with sausage and broccoli rabe. My friend had their steak which he said was delicious. My wife had the veal scallopini which she loved. The martinis we ordered were served ice cold and were great. Staff was, as always, totally professional and helpful. It was a great evening in a great restaurant. Grazie!
Food and service was exceptional.
Dining at Valbella is always a fantastic experience. From the wine list to the service, we truly enjoy a night out.
We had a great meal with excellent service. The Crab Cake, Clams Casino and Beet Salad app's were excellent as were the Salmon and Pasta Bolognese main courses. My wife who has Salmon at all good restaurants raved about the quality, preparation and the large portion. The Bolognese was rich and very flavorful. Valbella is consistently a 5 star experience.
25th anniversary….we had our rehearsal dinner at Valbella 25 years ago!
wonderful as always!

We dine at Valbella's frequently and have never been disappointed. Diner this time was outstanding. Our waiter, Juan was terrific suggesting an amazing bottle of wine and Main Course. All staff interactions were first-rate friendly from the car valet to the bus-boy. While ours was Romantic evening, this terrific place works more serious business meetings too.
We were very disappointed with this restaurant. Although the food was good, we felt very rushed through our dinner. It was as if they were running an assembly line and moving people in and out as fast as possible. We ordered a bottle of champagne and a few minutes after, the waiter asked if we were ready to order dinner. We did as we knew what we were going to have. Literally, w/in 5 minutes, our main courses were delivered- it was as if they were being pre-prepared. Once we finished dinner, we ordered dessert and coffee and that took a few minutes longer to arrive but it was still very rushed. The entire dinner took a little over an hour and there was simply no ambiance or graciousness.
Food is not what I use to be. And they tried to overcharge me for the wrong year on a bottle of wine.
It's always a pleasant dining experience at Valbella. Food was fantastic as always. Out waiter was excellent.
Lovely restaurant with top notch service. The food was overpriced for the quality, as well as being “tired” and unimaginative.
Our family celebration was great fun. The biggest problem was the noise level—hard to hear. The food was very good & our waiter attentive. The wine list could have a better mix of price ranges.
Really tastes good, and great service, but not worth the premium. Priced way too high for what you get.
Valbella is always excellent. They go out of their way to make the experience is exceptional. I would rate them in the top 1%.
