    Historic, bucolic setting. Sat on the porch. I ordered the buttermilk dipped fried chicken with some spicy sauce and pickles. It was divine! And the side salad had the best vinaigrette dressing. Wish I asked for the recipe.

    Lovely historic restaurant nestled in Fairmount Park. Food was excellent! And the portion was perfect for both me and my mother. But even though I did mention it was my mother's birthday on my reservation, there was no recognition of that. The server was very kind but also very very slow. We do want to go back and try other dishes. The pan seared salmon and sticky ribs were delicious, as was the tiramisu

    A hidden gem! Historic and an amazing location right on the Wissahickon. A celebration dinner on a spring Sunday evening did not disappoint. There was a wedding also going on, but it didn't affect our experience at all. We sat indoor - a bit quieter - but the porch looked nice also. Food was excellent - from appetizer to desert. You really have to want to get there as it truly is off the beaten path, but well worth the adventure! Google maps worked fine. We did a nice bike ride on Forbidden Road along the creek before our reservation. We'll be back!

    Character galore in this mid 1850s gem along the river. Went for Sunday brunch. Busy without being overcrowded. The views of the river and walking path added to the energy. Hosts were friendly and efficient. Our waitress, Irina, was upbeat and accurate. Our meals - blackened salmon and Brie filled French Toast, were both excellent. Highly recommend and plan to return

    Huge disappointment for Mothers Day brunch. Once seated we waited over 40 minutes for a server to appear. Even then there were no menus, no silverware. We waited another 10 minutes to be given menus. She took our orders but then couldn't read her writing and came back to the table twice to ask what we ordered. Poached eggs came hard boiled, water was not refilled and we were often left with long gaps in between service. Three hours later we still had not received dessert and b/c some of us had to drive back to NYC I asked for one in a to-go container and asked for the check so that we wouldn't have to wait another hour for the check. Dessert came only for one person instead of 5. She took our credit card and disappeared. I was so utterly embarrassed by how bad everything was, I have never done this but I went to the front to speak to someone who seemed like a manager. I shared that our experience was embarrassingly bad and that it now being over 3 hours could we just have our credit card back so we could leave. This was the worst part of the experience--he DID NOT CARE. Just said 'which table are you at?' The other 4 desserts arrived in take out containers along with our credit card. We couldn't leave fast enough. What an awful experience any day let alone mother's day. It was clear from other patrons that they were equally dismayed, annoyed, and angry. It's a shame b/c it's at a beautiful location and some of the food was good. But do not go here at any cost--it is not worth the risk. I've never had such a bad experience dining anywhere in my life--and I'm old-I've been to alot of restaurants.

    They just know how to do a lovely, service oriented, quality MOTHERS DAY brunch each and every year. Kudos! Quite good on other weekends through the year as well. =)

    Valley Green is one of a very few places that consistently delivers a terrific dining experience in an amazing historic setting. Mother’s Day crowds are especially challenging and the caring staff did everything to make it a treat.

    Great location, excellent food and attentive service even though it was a busy night. Prices for food and drinks very reasonable given today’s economy.

    Always a pleasant setting, the fireplace room was quiet & cozy. We were three and everything was excellent: we had soup, goat cheese empanadas, crab cakes. Service was professional and efficient. Definitely recommend.
