Valenza Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
service was dismal - had to ask for everything bread, olive oil, etc. worst was waiter rushing us aggressively despite telling him clearly not to do it.
Amazing food and service! Have the veal! Best thing ever!
The food was good although broccoli side dish a little salty
The waiter was minimally attentive and could have improved the experience
Atmosphere was nice but a little noisy
Creative Italian fare, with great service. Our waiter was attentive while leaving plenty of space to enjoy our meal. Everything we ordered was well executed, and we thoroughly enjoyed the Steely Dan radio as background music. You can tell the owners/management care about what they are doing. Great place for a date or a group, we definitely plan to revisit!
Food and service was excellent. Ordered Squid ink pasta with shrimp and Black bass. Delicious. Issue- We were seated at a two top that was very small and so close to other tables that their conversations were a distraction for us.
Wonderful food and service! All employees did a wonderful job tending to each table in our area and our server was especially great. The food was outstanding and the timeliness of receiving drinks and all food was about the expected wait time. Will definitely be going back!
It was my boyfriend’s birthday and although I did mention it in my open table reservation- no one at the restaurant asked me about it and it was not acknowledge.
I love the fact I can get half orders of pasta. Good ambience, good service, reasonable prices
Valenza is always delicious, cozy, and fabulous. It never disappoints.
Ashley our waitress was excellent! She had the best attitude! Her recommendations were spot on! Couldn’t not have asked for a better experience. Definitely ask for her if you dine there. Will be back for sure!
Love this restaurant! Always a great experience!!
Excellent as always!
Excellent service, excellent food & superior wine, which all made for a most enjoyable dinner.
Great dining experience. Started with the mussels - easy to share and good value. Had squid ink pasta with Georgia shrimp - delicious and perfect portion. Friendly service. Will definitely be back!
A little loud. Food delicious and service impeccable
Very nice overall, food was amazing!!!!!
Love love Valenza! Celebrated my 40th at Valenza with my husband and friends and it was perfect.
The only negative was the type of dessert given with a candle.
Valenza is my favorite restaurant. Food and staff are great.
Consistent. Attentive service. Not an overwhelmingly large menu like some places, but still enough variety for everyone to find a good choice. Good wine list.
Just visiting and found this restaurant
Great food and service
We liked the wine also..
Definitely would recommend.
We had an excellent dinner! The Sunday Supper was fantastic and so economical. Great wine, too. Service was slow at the end, but they got really busy! Can't wait to go back!
The food was delicious. Service was very good. The manager checked on our table twice to make sure everything was good.
Always great food & service!!
Great Brookhaven neighborhood Italian any night of the week
Unbelievable! Incredible food, top notch service! Don't wait, just go and experience for yourself!
Great dinner service was fabulous
Can wait to go back
Date night with my husband. Everything was perfect! Delicious!
Amazing restaurant. Fabulous service, cocktails, ambience and food. The pasta is made from scratch and tastes as good if not better than restaurants I’ve been to in Rome. Romantic love music on w Snead Aya makes for a wonderful date or family dinner.
Food was great. One in our party wasn’t pleased with her food, it was quickly redone and delicious. And comped. Nice wine selection. Great Chianti.
We absolutely love this restaurant! The dishes are delicious and the wine selection is very approachable. We have been several times and never had a bad experience. Very consistent! Perfect for special occasions and date night.
Music was non conducive and too loud for a relaxing atmosphere.
Fantastic as always. Great service. Best lasagna in Atlanta and the every Tuesday special. Never disappointed.
Timely, friendly and helpful service. Wise array of dishes - all great and tasty. Ambiance was comfortable and warm. Perfect.
Big fan of this place, it never disappoints. The food is genuinely good - I've yet to have something I don't like. Not a huge fan of the calamari, but the other apps are great - we always get the butternut squash ravioli as an appetizer, it's fantastic. Definitely recommend!
Food was great. Server was extremely rude. At first we thought he was very attentive and then we realized he was trying to rush us out. We had a reservation, so there was no reason for them to need our table. We also had ordered a bottle of wine and were trying to enjoy it. Our food came out very quickly, which is fine, except that it came out seconds after the bread that they brought to our table. The server put the check on the table only 30 minutes after we had walked through the door. Then, as we sat finishing the bottle of wine, he actually started wiping down the table as we were sitting there. He also kept filling up our glasses when they did not need to be filled, as if that would make us drink the wine faster. At one point I had a wine glass that was almost filled up to the brim. I'm sorry, but they should not have let us make the reservation if they didn't have room for us, and no one should expect you to be able to drink a bottle of wine between two people within 45 minutes. I would have liked to come back because the food was great, but I never wanted to be treated that rudely ever again.
Very nice experience. We enjoyed the food and wine.
Will go back again.
Excellent food and service. The calamari and seafood appetizer was perfectly done with a very light,crispy crust. The butternut squash ravioli was rich and buttery. The rack of lamb special was the best I have ever had. And to top things off the white chocolate bread pudding was excellent, although try it with vanilla ice cream as opposed to the chocolate. Even the house white wines were exceptional. I will be back!
Great place ... their valet was horrible. Any changes to the menu confuse the wait staff.
We love Valenza. We eat here once a week and are never disappointed.
Great neighborhood restaurant. We had an excellent server. Food is always tasty! We also enjoyed a two piece band with singer.
Great food and service - everything was delicious!
