First time we visit Valenza Restaurant and it did not disappoint. Went for our wedding anniversary and had a very good time. Live jazz, food was amazing. Our waiter recommended one of the specials and got a delicious pork chop. My husband got the scallops, which I think were really good because he did not share with me.
One of our entrees was ordered incorrectly by the server. While she and the manager acknowledged the mistake, there was no adjustment to my friend’s bill (or any other service recovery gesture) even though she didn’t receive her entree until the rest of us were almost finished. Additionally our server often seemed hurried and left the table when one of us was trying to place an order or ask a question. Overall did not feel like the fine dining experience we expected when we selected this venue for celebrating numerous special occasions.
Our favorite Italian spot.
Always a hit with us, we ordered the Pappardelle split for the two of us with a salad and it did not disappoint. We ordered our Comos "not sweet" and it was too strong but no attitude from the bartender, he provided a slice of lime and some cranberry and we doctored them ourselves. No worries! We love this place and will be back.
Service and food were fabulous. Great atmosphere. Enjoyed by all!
This was our second time at Valenza. The food is great, however, my order was wrong when it arrived. The staff was very kind and assured us they would take care of the problem. We were on our way to a show and, therefore, had a time limit . When my entrée finally arrived it was delicious but I did not have enough time to enjoy it.
They brought over a complimentary dessert which I could not eat due to dietary restrictions. It would have been nice if they had taken my entrée off the bill.
Food was fantastic! Service was mediocre but perhaps she was having a bad night.
We had a delicious meal and the service was great! We were meeting a friend for lunch who had not been and she loved it. Love the renovation they did and it is a great place for either dated night or business lunch!
Very good service and yum food as usual. Nice b day dinner.
My sister and I dined here and thought it was pretty good. Her meal of caesar salad and pasta (oreciette ?) was better than mine. I had the mussels and a couple of them tasted a little strange but the cooking sauce was divine. There were 3 large pieces of toasted bread to dip into the sauce.
I had the fish of the day (sea bass) on a bed of roasted veggies. The sea bass was dry and chewy and seriously had to ask my waiter if he had served me a chicken breast instead of fish!
The staff was very attentive and polite, The restaurant is attractive. The noise level was acceptable. And I forgot that the desserts were quite good. I had a apple & pear tart with caramel ice cream (perfect) and my sister had the molten chocolate cake with cream (she added that caramel ice cream to hers as well - good idea).
Everything was great. The back room was a little cold.
Service not so great lately- food quay varies a lot these days too- bummer
Ok service and food
We'll go back there. Food was excellent!
Used to be so consistent- hit or miss lately which is a bummer.
Hostess & server were especially friendly and helpful!
Best Italian in Atlanta and the service is superb!
Every time we go there the Food is Outstanding . Really a lovely spot for a great meal
We met some old friends for dinner and it was perfect. The food and ambiance and service were exactly what we were looking for. Thank you for a great evening out!
As always the food and service were top notch! We brought our 12 year old and they could not have been more accommodating!!
I had reservations and was seated in the area I had requested. Gabriella was our main server, and she was outstanding. Had a smile all the time we were there and was very helpful. Best experience possible.
Wonderful food, and great atmosphere.
Incredible gnocchi dish, and the dessert was wonderful too. Great cocktails as well and fabulous service. Can’t wait to go back.
Great restaurant and true Brookhaven local find!!! Amazing apps and pappardelle was awesome! Great cocktails and wine. Please bring back the lemon curd dessert :(
Love this restaurant!!
Good food and service. I am at fault for not requesting a quieter area..
My husband and I enjoyed the Sunday dinner special - salad, entree and dessert for $26. The smaller portions were ample and delicious. We will definitely be back.
Two things spoiled the experience - first the manager was lurking at the front door with a scowl and although he was almost blocking our entrance, did not greet us - actually seem perturbed we were there. He then proceeded to stalk around the restaurant during our dinner - very uncomfortable and not an inviting atmosphere.
The restaurant was relatively empty (Saturday night during Georgia football game) and we felt very rushed. We ordered a bottle of wine then our meals - they brought our food out within 3 minutes of our waiter placing our orders. Our waiter was even taken by surprise when he came by the table and we already had our food. Very poor timing and presentation.
The food was good and we so enjoy the restaurants on Dresden - will probably give them another try. Hope it was an off night and that the do better next time.
Great cozy and moody atmosphere.
The food was excellent. I ordered a dirty martini but it was not dirty at all. I had to send it back and get another one. Then it was taken away before I was finished with it. It was gone before I could protest.
Daniel was my server as always and he was fenomenal, best server in town.
It was excellent value and service. We had the chicken which was absolutely amazing. Havoc Joe Gransden for our entertainment for the evening was a very nice topping to the evening.
Never disappoints!!! Food, service and ambience are incredible.
The food is consistent and the staff is what really makes the difference. Special recognition to Grace and Michael!!
Valenza was amazing from the food, ambiance and service everything was top notch
The food is unbelievable, great ingredients and great flavors. Staff was very friendly and very helpful with great recommendations all evening. The room is cozy, great for talking and enjoying your time with your table, but not overly stuffy. One word of advice, the best dishes are often the specials. Enjoy.
Have been going to Valenza since Michel opened the restaurant. Having moved away from the neighborhood a couple of years ago we come back whenever we're passing through ATL. It's remarkable that the place never looks tired or worn. The service and energy are still there as well as the tried and true food.
Wonderful atmosphere great wait staff amazing food not overly seasoned but wonderfully balanced. My wife and I were celebrating her 60th Birthday and the staff went out of their way to make it special for her. We went on Wednesday night specifically to see Joe Gransdon play in an intimate setting that was relaxing and fun. We will be going back to enjoy this jewel of a restaurant soon
Food was outstanding and service was impeccable.
Fabulous time and experience as always! The service and food is always a winner for us!!
An African American couple was seated nearby. I have never heard such profanity, anywhere or anytime. I have never heard such repeated and loud use of the F word or the MF word. It was only the female who was loud and extremely profane. It was a problem for all the diners. There were families and at least one child. The management did nothing. We asked to be moved and they immediately moved us. I have never witnessed such behavior at any restaurant.
