Great place but beware Opentable diners. You can make a reservation on Opentable but they will not honor it.
Big problem on a Saturday night. 4 of us had to wait and then ended up squeezing in at the bar. Bad policy for them.

The experience was not bad, however, there was a lot that was left to be desired. There was one embarrassing moment for my mom. When being seated at a booth, per her request, the waiter or host, or whoever it was that sat us kept picking tables where there wasn't enough room for her to sit down. The third table is the one we personally selected. We didn't make a big deal about it, but it really upset her.

The breadsticks were nice. My mom got a shrimp club sandwich with bacon, and felt like it was bland. I got the Granchio Verde. It looked very pretty and was a nice light dish but it did seem like it was missing something flavorwise. My dad got some kind of open face pot roast sandwich I think? He really enjoyed his food.

Overall, it wasn't a bad experience but with my mom having a not so great experience it kind of put a damper on the night and my birthday. Completely willing to give it another go and try other stuff on the menu. Aside from the whole table thing, our service was really great. Someone was always checking how we were doing and how we were on our drinks.

I had a lovely garden salad, paired with pasta with spinach, mushrooms, and jumbo lump crab, plus German chocolate cake and a glass of wine. It was delicious and a great way to begin New Year's Eve.

This was our first time and we would definitely return. It is a unique, neighborhood restaurant. VERY BIG but not overwhelming menu. Impossible to not find several items you would like. The food was excellent and the pricing was very fair. We each also received a complimentary light palette cleansing fruit plate after dinner. If you are dining anywhere near Harford Rd. inside the beltway, give Valentino's Restaurant a visit.

We chose Valentinos as a last minute Mother's Day Lunch choice for a group of 6. I have been there twice and remember the food to be tasty- well cooked and seasoned well. This time the food seemed over cooked and not well seasoned. Everyone needed to add salt and pepper. We arrived 15 minutes early which seemed to throw the staff off a bit. Once we were seated the tables the were severely uneven and took some time for the staff to fix. Food arrived quickly but was mediocre.

Today was my fiancé birthday and I brought him here to experience the results of a google search for "the best meatloaf in Baltimore." He did in fact enjoy the meatloaf and enjoyed the Seafood Alfredo. The food was absolutely delicious. They sang him happy birthday with the cake of his choice. All in all we had a great time

My mother and I enjoyed our Christmas Evening meal at Valentino's Restaurant. Rishu, our server, was very friendly and polite. Rishu made frequent visits to our table to make certain that our meal was enjoyable. My mother and I hope to return to Valentino's very soon, perhaps on New Year's Day. Thank you again, Valentino's Restaurant.

Our waitress was really good and attentive but the food wasn't. My crab cake was on the dry side, not much lump meat. Don't like crispy fries. Prefer regular fries or steak fries. Cole slaw lacking flavor.
Doubt that I will be back.

I can't say enough about this restaurant!

I thought I had booked a table for a late dinner on New Year's Eve, but I realized when we arrived that I booked for that morning. I had made a huge mistake on the time. When we arrived the line was out the door. I was not expecting to be seated but the restaurant did accommodate me after I explained my booking mistake to the GM Paul. Valentino's did not have an empty seat in the house and still everything went smoothly and professionally.. The filet mignon was seasoned and cooked perfectly. My wife's seafood Maryland was also amazing (I know because I had her leftovers for lunch the next day).

Bravo Valentino's! Bravo!

Went there based on the Xmas menu on their website as well as reading several positive reviews....were told upon arrival and mentioning that the $31 Fillet was not on the menu...the waiter was unable to explain so a manager came over and gave me some poor excuse..so we all ordered something else....35 min. later the same manager came back and informed me that the Breaded Scallops had run out and now I had to pick something else..our food finally came and things got worse...my sons steak had a taste like it was old and my wifes Turkey Croquettes were so bad even I couldn't eat them...have no idea what spices were used but I can assure you after having eaten both Chicken and Turkey versions of the dish..I have never been unable to eat the dish....now as to the "Broiled" Scallops I settled for they were luke warm and in my opinion were undercooked a bit....after making my utter disappointment with things very clear they did remove the charge for the Scallops...we drove 40 miles on Xmas day looking forwards to a nice Filet Mignon dinner and instead ended up with a meal no better than we could have gotten at a place like Dennys....BAH HUMBUG!!!!

Valentino's is an excellent choice for any meal. The stuffed mushrooms imperial were scrumptious. My husband raved about his ravioli. They made the basic hamburger and fries special, especially those fries. Yummy!

The atmosphere is comfortable and relaxed. Service is prompt and pleasant. We felt a generous tip was warranted. We've always had good experiences here.
