Valbella, which since 1992 has been a celebratory place and a regular haunt for the locals who pack it most nights of the week both for its sumptuous food and its astonishing wine cellar, containing 1,450 selections and 16,000 bottles.
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.

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!

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.

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.

Lovely restaurant with top notch service. The food was overpriced for the quality, as well as being “tired” and unimaginative.

Birthday

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.

It was a great evening. We were celebrating a birthday and wedding anniversary. The service was excellent. The food was exceptional. (To die for!) Brain our waiter was accommodating, friendly and led us in our celebratory songs. The service left nothing to chance.

Food was so extraordinary. Seafood salad was great, fish extremely fresh, veal was of the first quality. The napoleon was a unanimous “best ever” at our table. While the meal was not cheap, considering great food, wine and desserts we certainly felt it was worth it!

A great special occasion destination!

This is first class dining in Greenwich. The ambiance is relaxing, the service is professional and unobtrusive and the food is simply delicious. They have an excellent wine list too with bottles at all price points. The veal was mouthwatering and the home made linguini was perfectly cooked. A plus!
