Excellent experience all the way around. We were in need of a place to host a casual, but nice business dinner and the back room was perfect.

Food was great, had a bit of a service concern due to my allergies, but spoke to manager and everything was excellent afterwards. Will definitely be back.

Valenza never disappoints. One of my favorite restaurants. Food and service impeccable. Always reserve a table on the "stage" level. Enzo is an excellent server and we always ask for him when we go there.

I love Valenza but only had the octopus appetizer. It was so charred that is all you tasted.. char... no octopus flavor. In spite of that I would recommend as everything else there I've had has been really good.

Our group was at Valenza recently for a special birthday and asked for a quiet table. We were put in the back room by ourselves which was ok except the waiter forgot us and we waited 20 minutes for our drink order. Since I made the reservation, I got up finally and asked a staff person to intervene. The manager took over responsibility for our table. Our service was much improved, the food was good except for stale bread at the beginning of our meal which was replaced. Not a great experience for our friends but we will try again because we love the food and Wednesday night jazz. Hopefully the service will be better.

It was a perfect evening. Our food was perfectly done and delicious. A storm unexpectedly blew in while we were seated on the patio, and our waiter was more than willing to find us a table inside before we were soaked. I am a celiac and on a strict gluten-free diet, but that does not mean I like dull food. The chef prepared a shrimp, Thai chili and GF pasta dish that was amazing. We'll be back soon!
