We had an absolutely wonderful night at the valley restaurant. It was actually New Year’s Eve and we had a very early seating because it was all that was available. But that was just fine by us. Then went out of their way to make the whole night feel very special. All of the extra details were really wonderful. I will definitely be back for New Year’s Eve as well as for regular restaurant outings.

If there were 10 stars I could give, I would! We have been to the Valley, many many times and not once, have we had a bad experience. Even if the food was not superior, the staff and the chef would be worth the trip. I love all the personal touches they add and the fact that the chef is out and about in the restaurant, talking to customers, is one of the best parts of the evening! The food, well the food is amazing!! Absolutely love them there! Muahhh!

Fine dining in a unique atmosphere. Service was great. They were attentive but did not make you feel rushed. The hostess told you at seating how long they had the table reserved for us. Food was delicious, seasoned well, not too salty. It was our anniversary and we received a complimentary limoncello! Highly recommend !

We loved it from the minute we parked! Situated on a residential street in Port Weller — Valley has the vibe of a vintage restaurant you would trip over in Buffalo or NF NY back in the day. The food is all homemade — gf allergies considered and catered to. Amazing wine list and fabulous service. Will be back soon — if we can get in!

We hadn't been to the Valley Inn in a very long time. We had a lovely evening with friends. The cozy atmosphere was so nice. They told us right away that it was a busy evening and so were allowing two hours for dining. It didn't take that long for the food to arrive. We had a lovely evening and will definetly go back.

My second time there within the past three months. Prior to that it had been 20 plus years. In that time the ownership has changed. The flavour of the food is amazing and the portions are very generous. The Valley is definitely on my wife's favourite list of Niagara eaterys and we will be returning regularly.

Very cozy, intimate atmosphere. Food was delicious and artfully presented. Would be nice to include a small salad with entres for the price. Desserts were scrumptious. Server was very friendly, personable , attentive but not obtrusive. Would return for sure.

Amazing!. Our table was in the perfect spot for our group. of 6. The menu was outstanding and then add in the 6 specials, it was so hard to decide. Each of us ordered something different and each dish did not disappoint. The choices right from the salads through to desserts , with a complimentary limoncello to top off the evening, can't find enough words to tell you all, you just have to go and enjoy one of the best meals you will ever had the pleasure of eating. Thank You Valley Inn for all you do to enhance the dining experience for all your customers.

My favourite restaurant in Niagara for the best Italian food! Unfortunately, because it is so small and always so busy, it is very noisy so I prefer visiting in the warmer weather on their patio.

Very noisy and one table of 4 must need hearing aides because they bellowed at each other all night! It also appears they jammed in more tables since we were there last and everyone seemed to close to each other.

Fantastic food. Great decor. I have only been there once before but the chef remembered me. That’s impressive. The chef ensures she visits tables every so often to get feedback and address any issues. A great restaurant.

Busy as always…. They put a lot of people in a small place but the food never disappoints. Actually enjoyed it more at reduced capacity but they have to make a living…. I get it.
Incredible meal.
