An excellent restaurant that is a regular choice for date night. This time I brought my daughter with me for her first visit. She thoroughly enjoyed the food and the service. Polpo (grilled octopus), tonight's dinner special (swordfish), and budino (rice pudding and gelato).
The food was incredible and the service was good! Always one of my favorite places to dine!
As usual, Valenza delivered on excellent food - especially the evening special, which was a real deal - perfect outdoor ambiance, and super-spectacular service. It's the best in Brookhaven.
I've been going to this restaurant for years and its always meet my expectations.
Awesome Dinner! Food was amazing! Can’t wait to get back here!
Always a great meal at Valenza. We'll be back again!
We went for our 15th wedding anniversary, I had not been to the restaurant before, my wife had. The food was good though lower than expectations. I wanted to support Mike Numeier’s Pink initiative (we are neighbors), ordered a pink drink and was very disappointed with the taste. Only finished 1/3 of it. The service lacked attention and I was surprised that no one mentioned it was our anniversary when that was noted on the reservation. I was also surprised to see a charge for the “bread service” on the bill. The $6 doesn’t bother me, but who charges for bread? The saving grace was the white chocolate bread pudding for desert, saved the night for my wife. Even that was not without a challenge though, another waiter brought it out without silverware, never came back and no other waitstaff could be found so we nabbed some off of another table. Overall a lack luster $130 meal. Had originally reserved a table at Haven for the evening and probably should have stuck with that.
It was good to be back at Valenza. We enjoyed eating outside in a very nice atmosphere.
The service was outstanding,. Food and wine were delicious.
We'll be back !
The outside seating was wonderful. Food fabulous. Very nice experience for a small birthday dinner. Highly recommend.
My party had a very good experience dining. From beginning to end the meal was amazing. Adam our server was great as well. We will definitely be back for another visit.
We were regulars at Valenza when we lived in Atlanta. We really looked forward to going back to Valenza on our recent visit there. The food was a bit of a disappointment although still very good. For example, the agnolotti was too salty. The squid ink pasta used to be noodles and is now some kind of small pasta, which made it less delicious, although still good. I would suggest they go back to previous recipes to ensure the high quality of the restaurant. Service was outstanding!
Our server was attentive and engaging. The food as always was excellent. First time I have been seated outside and the patio was enjoyable.
Really great food, service, and outdoor patio! Short rib pasta dish was to die for!
I used to live in Brookhaven and hadn’t been back for quite some time, so when I read about this restaurant I knew I wanted to try it. Everything was lovely, from the ambiance to the food. The cuisine is that of the Piedmont region of Italy, which is my favorite. We started with perfectly made Manhattans, followed by glasses of Nebbiolo Langhe, which were light and balanced. We shared the fritto misto, which was delicious, perfectly cooked and the fried capers added the perfect amount of briny saltiness to the seafood. For entrees, we shared the butternut squash ravioli and the pappardelle and there wasn’t a bite left between us. It was all so delicious. The weather was perfectly cool, as well, and the restaurant windows and doors were open to allow fresh breezes to flow through the inside dining room Since it was a full house, this made me feel better about the intimate spacing. The complimentary valet parking was nice, given the restaurant is located in a bustling enclave in Brookhaven. We will definitely return to this wonderful neighborhood restaurant.
We were first time diners and both the venue and the food were excellent. However, interior the tables did not appear to be compliant with distancing guidelines and we felt a bit uncomfortable. They also have outdoor seating but that was not available.
We had a reservation for 7:30 but got there early and got seated early. The staff checked up on us very often and was extremely nice. The food was excellent and came in pretty big proportions.
Great for outdoor dining and always a great fish special of the day available.
Very slow service
A great place to go to get out of the house for dinner.
Fabulous as always...we had our first date there 3 years ago and this was a return for our anniversary. We are also celebrating our engagement!
While we go there often, this was a special occasion and everything was really nice.
I am a little sad however, that you have to pay for the bread now instead of it coming ahead of the meal like it used to. We went ahead and paid for it, because I am obsessed with their sour dough and foccacia. The 'new' bread was still good, but did not seem the same as it used to be.
All in all, it is always a nice evening at Valenza.
Overall good experience.
Mary the waitress and Michael the bartender were great. High quality food and experience.
This restaurant never fails to deliver.
Sunday night family dinner is a great value.
Delicious food, nice ambiance, good service...would love to go again
Love this local gem. Best restaurant in Brookhaven
Always a great experience.....Michael and Grace do such a great job making everyone dining at the bar feel welcome and special....Chef always delivers a delicious meal.....
Wonderful evening as always!
We did not get a cancellation notice and there was a gas leak, we could not have dinner
Best Italian food I've ever had! Would definitely go back if I'm ever in the area again!
Strongly suggest that servers wear masks WITHOUT an exhale valve.
Lobster risotto was excellent!
I arrived first to wait for our clients. After 10 minutes, I waved a server down for a glass of wine. My client ordered a martini. After 15 minutes my husband went into check on the martini. We were told there was something in the first one and they would make another. Finally, 30 minutes after ordering the martini arrived.
The Calamari was greasy. The meatballs were tough with little marinara sauce. The salmon was the only item that anyone had positive comments. Very embarrassing to take clients and have the entire evening be so disappointing. We love Haven, but we will not return to Valenza.
Had a great time
Wonderful food and one of our favorites. We love the outside best but it was raining.
Lovely experience overall. Will definitely be back!
The worst service we have had in a very long time...
Took a while to get our drinks/order taken and seemed there was a long time between courses
Tables not socially distant.
We sat outside on the patio for social distancing and the ambiance was wonderful! They also had hand sanitizer on the table, which was a nice extra touch. Service was great and food was pretty good too!
We were disappointed upon arrival that the outdoor seating was on a first come first served basis. We had booked for 7pm for outdoor seating but it was after 7:30pm when we were seated.
The food was fantastic as always. The waiter seemed to be extremely busy but it was understandable for a Saturday evening. Really love this place.
