Delicious food, great service, we enjoyed a quiet dinner and will be back
We went for the price fixe brunch and it was very delicious! The ambiance was very pleasant!
Went to Valley Green for my boyfriend's birthday brunch. I had been there before, for lunch, and the whole experience was wonderful. Made a reservation online and when we arrived, was seated immediately. The food was beyond delicious and the waitstaff very attentive.
Food was okay, took very long to come out as if they forgot about us , almost an hr.
78 dollars a person in a price fixed menu that was completely different than what was online after booking. We were half way through our salads when a poor excuse of arancini and lobster sliders came out. This meal was the worst $250 I have ever spent at a restaurant. Go to Zahav in the city if you are looking for a good meal. It is tucked away in the middle of nowhere for a reason.
Family holiday celebration. The dining room is intimate in a way that means you’re really sharing the experience for others who are there too. Including the baby having a meltdown. I know babies cry but it definitely affected our celebration to share the small space with a large family trying to console a crying baby a few feet away. Such is life. Not anyone’s fault but just the reality of the evening.
It was ok. service was slow and awkward, especially for it being Christmas day.
Charming historic country inn feeling. We loved the (gluten free) mushroom soup which was a generous serving and very flavorful.
Our friends and my husband and myself get together near Christmas for dinner together instead of exchanging gifts. Last year, our dinner was ruined by an incompetent waiter, mistakes in the order and a great deal of noise. At the Valley Green Inn, our dinner was superb, the waiter was very good and, best of all, we were able to carry on a conversation and hear each other without raising our voices. The atmosphere was in the holiday spirit. So, we plan on doing our get together there next year. Hopefully, hubby and I can enjoy several meals there during the year.
An absolutely charming brunch!
Delicious food. Good experience for my group. We were seated by the entrance and it was just a little drafty for one of the people in our group. Food was very good, excellent portions. Definitely would recommend to others.
This is a favorite spot for us, and we are never disappointed.
Always a great place to take out of town visitors after a hike in the woods! Cozy and quiet, great place for leisurely meal. Food pretty consistent though today’s chef was pretty heavy handed with the salt. Will come back when friends come to visit Philly. A really unique hike and dine opportunity.
Always an interesting place, setting , history
My son was married here!
My wife and I went for a relaxed dinner for our anniversary. The food and service were both great. Portions were generous for a restuarant on the fancier side which was a definitely plus for me as I hate paying for an expensive meal and leaving hungry.
Lovely brunch with family! Delightful!
Venue and setting is special, Had a terrific meal with terrific service. Interesting menu choices and the items we chose were great. Had a really enjoyable dinner and the whole experience was special. Highly recommend.
It is a beautiful restaurant. It had a lot of great activities surrounding it. The staff was helpful but not particularly friendly. I felt that the portions did not appropriately match the cost.
We have frequented the Inn several times and I had my daughter's bridal shower at the inn. The ambiance is wonderful and the staff is professional and engaging. The food is good, but not stellar. I will continue to frequent the inn.
We always love this cherished restaurant located right on the Wissahickon Creek in Valley Green, and we've had many fine dinners there. It's a favorite when we have out-of-town guests. Hard for them to believe that we have such beauty IN the city of Philadelphia! This trip was no exception. We came with my sister and brother-in-law from Boston, and we all enjoyed it. I think they may have been a bit understaffed this night, because the service was slower than usual, and the server got some of our food mixed up. My partner and I shared a delicious steak which would have been much too big for either of us to eat alone. My sister had the salmon, and her husband, the chicken sandwich. Prices are always moderate, as are the price of drinks. Overall, we love this treasure and most certainly will return.
Location is the best part of the experience. Food and service is meh.
The view, ambiance, quality of food makes this an experience rather than "just" a meal.
And I mean no disrespect to bringing the food to the forest so that we can be entertained and being fed like "the old days".
Service was perfect, on time, social and interesting.
I had steak frites and it was amazing!
My GF had the turkey club (with extra avocado) and proclaimed "best ever!"
What a wonderful experience on a perfect day!
Go and do it!
Overall we enjoyed our experience here . The atmosphere provides a really relaxing meal. The noise level is so low compared to so may restaurants today. The snapper soup (house specialty) was excellent. It’s very unusual to find snapper soup with actual big chunks of turtle . It was very tasty with no addition of cream !
The crab cakes were good but had that strong flavor they have when not made from fresh crab with no additives . I know truly fresh crab is not often used but of course we enjoy it in a select few restaurants in Ocean City Maryland.
My steak was flavorful but tough .
We shared a tuna appetizer and it was very good with the exception of the single sushi roll that adorned the plate the rice in that was very dry and hard.
Wines were reasonably priced compared to many restaurants in PA.
Excellent food. Nice outside seating. Polite staff.
A wonderful place to eat and your bill benefits the park!
Valley Green Inn is a hidden gem. It’s busy on the weekend, but it is also a great place to eat mid week. The food, service, and setting are top notch.
Great place. Good for kids.
The Valley Green Inn is in a great setting. The flavors of the food were nice, but everything was way too salty.
Excellent food, excellent service & amazing ambiance!!!
Food was delicious and the staff friendly. We really enjoyed sitting on the porch people watching while we enjoyed our meal.
Love Valley Green. My wife and I had our wedding there. Wish the duck was still on the menu but always love going there.
Beautiful food In a beautiful setting. Special place.
Had a beautiful 41st anniversary lunch with my wife. Sat outside and had a bottle of wine and great food. Try the bacon wrapped meatloaf and the crab cakes. Would for sure eat here again. Thank you
A beautiful setting for a perfect weekend brunch, followed by a stroll along the path.
No TVs. No music. Rustic atmosphere by the creek on a beautiful day. My wife and I agreed to come back on a nice cold winter day to sit b6 the fire.
On a nice day dinner on the porch is unbeatable. My wife was very happy with the kale salad with grilled salmon. The grilled chicken sandwich was very good.
Lovely time on the porch of the Valley Green Inn. Perfect day of food and friends. Brunch is a perfect time to be there. Great people watching in a lovely park setting.
It was ok not terrible, this place is so unique and could be a wonderful experience. Candles on the outdoor dining tables and real tablecloths could add a big improvement...
Great meal. A historic inn in the largest urban park (Fairmount) in the United States. The most beautiful setting in the city. Food was surprisingly and unexpectedly good. Our server Irene was great. I called earlier in the day to see if it was BYOB and found they have a wine list but only charge a $10 corkage fee so I brought a nice bottle with me. We didn’t have dessert. Highly recommended!
The beautiful location is a given. Staff was friendly and informed. The celery root hummus was exquisite and beautifully presented. Both entrees the salmon and meatloaf were delicious, and we ate it all! Just a lovely experience - again! (Not my first visit.)
