My daughter did a lot of research and had convinced us to celebrate her birthday at this otherwise unknown to us restaurant. Since she is a foodie and in general knows what to look for in a good restaurant, I deferred to her final selection. We live 25-30 minutes away from the restaurant location, so for us to venture out to another town, especially on a week night, is a big deal. As we had approached the venue, the exterior was sparkly with holiday lights which gave it a festive appearance. As we had entered the restaurant, I was underwhelmed from start to finish. The place seemed abandoned. One room was totally empty and the room where we were seated, had four other tables occupied. We were barely greeted by the host which made the start of our dining experience less than special. The food was fine but not extraordinary, yet the prices were exorbitant. Additionally, I was not a fan of hidden costs. There was a separate page of their specials which had MP listed next to every listed food item. My son was in the mood for fish (Chilean sea bass). When the bill arrived, I was shocked to see a $58 charge. The rest of our party had ordered various pastas which were not bad but certainly didn’t justify the cost. There was no wine menu which was strange and our server simply recited the ones they had by the glass. Unfortunately, we had to rush out from our dinner as my daughter didn’t feel well. As my husband was getting our coats, he placed the bag on the floor with some of the leftover food, which he forgot to take with him. Nobody made an effort to chase after us and/or contact us regarding the forgotten bag. We placed our dinner reservation vis a vis open table, hence it would have been easy to track us down. Needless to say, this was NOT a memorable dinner and experience. We didn’t feel special at all and will NOT return or recommend this place.
We ate downstairs and it was quite compared to upstairs. The food was amazing and the service was great!
one of our favs to visit when in Greenwich! very nice covid protection. beautiful ambiance, excellent service, and wonderfully prepared meals! what could be better. The only negatives are that the food came out very fast and the waiter was not as friendly as e ould have been. we will come back often!
Birthday. Lovely service. We had a great experience.
Great food but our waiter was horrible. He never once came up to us to ask how our food was or refill our drinks. Had to wave him down just go get our checks. Really disappointed in the service.
two of us ordered Caesar salad; one as appetizer, one entree. The lettuce was not crisp, dark and lank. My entree was quite small and very underwhelming. The caesar salad used to have great lettuce with a cucumber sliver wrapped.... Terrible. The tuna tartare was fine, but I order this at many restaurants and Valbella's was only so-so. My family seems to love their pastas and veal.
My husband got the bill and so I didn't see it.
Fantastic service always and the food is amazing! Perfect Friday night date night
Incredible food that was only rivaled by the service. The charcuterie, lobster tail in orange cognac and filet were all spectacular. Would 100% dine here again
Valbella was amazing! The food was fantastic and the service was pristine! They were so attentive & nice. Highly recommend this restaurant for any special occasion. The food came out quickly and they took great care of us! 100000/10
Never disappointed with the staff, food, ambiance, etc.
Food, service, and experience were as wonderful as ever.
Really lovely experience
Most warm, delicious, hospitable dining experience!
Juan was a superb waiter-really attentive service. Great ambiance
A perfect all around evening of delicious food, impeccable service in a beautiful atmosphere!
Great as usual. Good food, nice wine list; special appetizer with great oysters and soup of the day was lobster bisque, and then a great dinner .
Nick and Juan and the rest of the Valbella family were wonderful as usual. There is nowhere I would rather take my bride on our 18th wedding anniversary.
The food is outstanding. Lobster tail with orange cognac glaze is the best ever. Clams casino done well. Chilean Sea Bass done to perfection, and desserts are fresh and delicious. You definitely pay for it but enjoy the pain! The only disappointment was our table in the middle of the room when our reservation noted that it was our anniversary. A cozier corner would have been appreciated for such a special night.
The vibe of this place is awesome, the staff is beyond helpful and understanding. It was a great place to go for an anniversary for sure. Totally recommend anyone to go here.
We loved everything about Valbella, the service, the food. The truffle pasta was incredible. I would go back just for that!
Great food, amazing staff we definitely recommend this place 🙂
Started outside, which is a lovely patio with a water feature, but highway noise was moderate so moved inside for ease of conversation (hearing aids involved). Service and food were impeccable. Will definitely return.
Consistently the best dining experience anywhere. Food, ambiance, wine and whiskey selection. Then add the personal touches Nicky and Lino provide. Luv it!!!!
This has been our favorite special occasion place for many years. We made a reservation for 10/10 to celebrate our anniversary. We have had many memorable dinners but not this time. Service was ordinary. We asked for a second basket of bread and never received it. Waiter never once checked on us after serving appetizer, main course or dessert. I ordered a veal dish and it was very tough. Both my husband and I didn’t finish our meals so we asked to have them packed up. After repeatedly asking for our leftovers the waiter finally came over and asked us what we ordered. This confirmed what we originally thought, they had thrown out our food, although they never admitted it. We had to wait 30 minutes for the leftovers to appear and when we got home we realized they had only made a half portion. This has happened before at other restaurants and they always provided a full portion. This is not an inexpensive place and I thought that was petty. Overall not up to our expectations!
I never write reviews, but this place is overrated and entirely overpriced. Food was average at best, service poor with a weird off put attitude, people were smoking cigarettes at the outdoor table next to us and they had their dog sitting under the table. The waiter even brought them an ashtray! What year is this? 1988? We had our kids with us, not that smoking at a restaurant is ever ok, but that definitely made it worse. I will never go back.
What a wonderful evening! The staff at Valbella did an amazing job. Food was fantastic and service - attentive. Definitely worth dining out for this experience. The restaurant did a great job of making us feel safe.
Awesome dining experience!
People are very friendly very clean prompt sat us on time and never rushed us to leave
parking attn was helpful in assisting us overall real nice time
Wonderful to be back at a favorite place. Excellent food and service. The staff is doing a great job to provide a safe and clean environment with plenty of distance between tables.
Excellent food and service as usual
Food was good. Very nice restaurant. Would recommend. A little expensive
Valbella always delivers an excellent night out with terrific food and wine (and well made cocktails too!) By far the most professional and elegant service in the area--bar none. Whenever we go, we feel we have really stepped out for a special evening.
Amazing food, service and ambience. A knowledgeable and welcoming staff who make you feel at home.
My favorite restaurant of all time! Best food & best people working there!! Family!!!💗
We sat outside but there was a large table of people near us standing around without masks on
Good atmosphere, good cocktail choices, attentive service but food/presentation of the food was ok and not great for the money. I’m chalking up to Covid environment given that running any restaurant must be super challenging. I will go back again to give it another whirl.
