Valley Inn Restaurant and Martini Bar
Locals love this place. First visit since 1982 when we lived in the Valley. Nothing changed! Not even our waiter press! Good time.
Our server, Chris, was fantastic! My friend’s pasta dish was great (vegetarian). I ordered two appetizers, of which one was inedible— the bruschetta— it was swimming in a sea of balsamic vinegar. Couldn’t eat it. They kindly removed the charge from our bill. Other than that, it was fine.
Consistently good. Comfortable old time atmosphere. Friendly and helpful staff.
I would recommend your establishmentire because of the ambience and service.
The food needs to improve. We had the chicken which was over cooked.
Last time we came we had the Tuna dish which was small and not very fresh. My husband had the salmon and the recipe was plain.
For what you charge I would prefer to pay less.
I know this restaurant is Historic! I love the selection. We wanted to watch the basketball playoffs and they sat us in a room with a TV. The wait staff was attentive to all of our wishes and the food was delicious!
As always delicious food great service and warm and welcoming atmosphere.
All was good. Server was right there, the cosmo was made perfectly the chicken piccata was yummy. It is old school but very comfortable. I always enjoy it there.
Good as always
Great place for excellent food and service. A little noisy when the dining room is full, but the specials (especially the lobster tails) are exceptional.
Business dinner for four -- the entire evening was great -- everyone enjoyed the appetizers, the main courses, and especially the desserts. At the Valley Inn you can easily hear the conversation from everyone at your table.
The Food and Service continue to be excellent. Wife loves the Martini's
What a great neighborhood spot. Been coming for years. We have never been there around 6 pm on a Saturday night and in the future would probably go there much, much later. The room is quite small and narrow and the decibels are huge. My husband and I were across the table from each other and couldn't carry on a conversation without yelling. Must say that has never happened before when we arrived later or on a different night. The food is great and it is very quaint and nicely reminiscent of years gone by. We will clearly enjoy more wonderful dinners there, but later for sure.
I love the old world vibe and history of the restaurant. From Yelp reviews I've read, service always seems to be the sticking point. I've went two times recently and both times it was a bit clunky. Not terrible but not what you'd hope for in a fine restaurant. We were given an awkward table in a high traffic area and immediately were bumped twice by passing wait staff and bus boys. I mentioned this and was told we weren't. I said I think we'd know if we were bumped or not. Anyway... the food was very good so that was great but in addition to the bumping, our table was too close to a booth with two loud talking men, so the atmosphere wasn't the best. Also we were too close in general, so not intimate or romantic.
Wonderful evening as usual! And we had the small private room at the back which made it even better.
Great place for a quiet lunch with friends. Great service and no rush.
The waitress was quite rushed and seemed to what us to pay and leave even though it was not late. However the food was good and came to the table hot. The noise level was high but we could hear each other at the table.
Come here for a cozy comforting evening where conversation rules, martinis are stiff, and wine pours are generous. The food is good enough, especially the calamari, shrimp cocktail, steaks and prime rib. Excellent mashed potatoes, too. This is old-school dining and a wonderful escape from the trendy small plates, tatted-up servers and scream-to-be-heard restaurants. Highly recommend.
Nice setting for business meeting. Old but fun, great menu selection and plentiful portions.
The food was wonderful! Love the ambiance.
Old world charm, average food quality and creativity, modern day prices$$$
Service was slow, ordered A medium rare ribeye, was served Rare and meat was very tough.
Great food, wonderful service. Varied menu from a simple Beef Dip , to Sea Food( including Sand Dabs and Italian ( great chicken Marsala. Wonderful leather booths, table setting for 4 and 2 great private rooms for meetings or celebrations. LOVE THIS PLACE!
Had a family birthday celebration there, and it was wonderful, soup to nuts!
Our server Victoria was especially attentive and nice. Very accommodating and professional. Thank you!
Love this restaurant.
Amazing service, food is good. Great location, easy parking.
It was absolutely lovely. Old school with red leather booths. Older crowd. The food and service were very good.
A step back in time old vibe and old school dishes.
Not my first choice for dinner as the food was mediocre at best,the place is a time capsule and they need to update the place and the recipes.
The food was good. The service was ok. The ambience was nice. It was a bit pricy for just ok. Not bad, might return. Nice people and a pleasant Valentines experience, other than the limited menu. But that probably should have been expected on Valentines Day.
My wife and I were really looking forward to a great Valentines dinner. We heard great things. On the positive side, very nice old world charm decor, the hostess was a delightful woman and the wait staff was also good. On the negative, the bartender virtually ignored us and there was only 4 people in the bar and the food quality was rather subpar.
Valentine’s Day special menu was fabulous. Best service ever. Friendly and warm greeting. Always a pleasure.
We had to ask 3 different times for our water glasses to be refilled. Waitress n others walked by often, but never bothered asking if all all ok.
Food portions are smaller than in recent past (we got prime rib n salmon).
Hostess more interested in sitting with others, Babysitting n playing with newborns n talking to them instead of helping out with tables
I love this place. The Old School vibe and the food is great!
Old-school dining at its best. Excellent duck, and garlic cheese bread. Terrific martinis. If you’re looking for comfort, look no further. You have found just the right place.
Only one waitress for entire room, after going to this restaurant for over 30 years.. I may not go back
Very uncomfortable in front of all my friends, since I recommended the restaurant.
We have eaten at the Valley Inn often in the past and sadly, the quality seems to have decreased while the prices have gone through the roof! I had the prime rib ($38.00) which was mediocre at best (could have paid the same at Lawry's and gotten top quality meat...lesson learned). The service wasn't much better. I ordered the prime rib medium and it was served rare. I sent it back and it came back well-done...and without much taste. My wife was already eating (she enjoyed her chicken) and I chose to just go ahead and eat it so we could dine together. The mashed potatoes were bland, and the carrots were incredibly dry with absolutely no taste. Happily the dinner salad that came with the meal was excellent quality and the creamy garlic dressing was wonderful as always. As far as the ambience, it was incredibly noisy. With all the young children there, it was like eating in a day-care center (this was not the fault of the restaurant, but it made the dining experience extremely unpleasant. How sad that parents are so insensitive to other diners that they allow their children to act as if they're in a school yard). Sorry our experience wasn't as enjoyable as we remembered. We'll probably try again when the kids are in school!
Great Valley landmark, with lots of history. Really like the Walnut Crusted Chicken!
staff is great - friendly, efficient. ambience is cozy. great local hang-out.
Friendly and reliable. Great food.
