Steak and tuna on stones are NOT TO BE MISSED! We really enjoyed yet another fantastic meal at Valenca. Highly recommended!

Our group of 4 had a wonderful evening out. The ambience at Valenca is awesome, beautiful decor in an awesome city surrounding. The sangria is the best! My husband was drinking bottled beer and switched to tap beer because the bottles were not cold. Our appetizers were amazing, we had the risotto balls and the short rib ravioli. Our salads and soup was also excellent. I would say two of our four entrees were great but the other two were just okay. We will def return and recommend.

Fabulous dinner for our group! Wonderful service especially the bar tender - the group enjoyed hanging out before we sat for dinner.

We celebrated my Fiance's 29th birthday and it couldn't have been more memorable! When asked what he would like to eat on his birthday he said 'steak on a stone!' We have eaten there for almost every birthday in our group of friends in the past year and we love it every time. This experience was by far the best. Our server was so patient, attentive, and professional. Steak on a stone was wonderful (as always) and our he was equally impressive. Thank you!!!!

Servicw was very good. Waiter, Dave, offered suggestions and was aware of allergies-good job. Menue was soiled, stains etc. Seat backs were loose and when person at table behind us moved the seat back moved-very annoying. Food was just o.k.

The food at Valenca is consistently awesome...that applies to both quality & presentation; the service is fantastic also. 1 person in our group required gluten free and 1 required vegetarian...we knew Valenca could handle this because we've been there 2 times before. The beef filet on a stone is an experience in itself. I know we'll be going back again & again.

We enjoyed it ...first time there....We had friends meet us. One item of improvement would be better sign out front...it is very small and cant make it out at night. Our friends had to drive around the block three times before they saw the restaurant.

overall, the food was excellent( the cheese platter, however, was not impressive...tiny bit of proscuitto)... the service was very pleasant, but had to wait too long for a table even though we had a reservation.

Over priced for average food. Green and Spinach salad were large but needed more dressing. Short rib ravioli were overpowered by the heavy cream sauce. Cakes were good and lemon aioli was very good but was not served with remoulade as described in menu. The lemon was intense but I love lemon. If you like something milder, make sure to request it on the side as it was drizzled over the crab cakes. Seared tuna was rare despite requesting medium.
Waitress was pleasant but hard to find and so fast that she put something on the table and walked away before we had a chance to make a request....like asking for a fork.
Over all, I would not go back. Sette Luna, a couple blocks away, is much better and more reasonably priced.

My husband took me to this restaurant for my birthday. It was our first time there, and definitely won't be our last. We had a drink in the bar area first, then sat down for our reservations in the dining area. From the bar area to the dining room, the service was unbelievable. We have been to every spectrum of restaurant, from top of the line to not so great and in betweeen, and this restaurants service and attentiveness was that of the most expensive dining place. The food was incredible and very creative. My husband loved his steak on a stone. I had chicken francaise which was a new take on an old favorite. Between the fire going and the delicious food and drink, this was a wonderful experience. Although pricey, this is tops!
