Stalwart and reliable

I've eaten here several times now. It is a neighborhood restaurant that does a good job of seving its community. The locals just keep coming back, and this just doesn't happen unless you get it right, which Val's does. The food is quite good, not haute cuisine, and definitely not in the... read more

This is the best restaurant and steak I've had in the United States so far! It was quite random we chose this restaurant, but after reading the hotel's recommendations for restaurants nearby and positive reviews online we decided to give it a try. Even though we came in a busy saturday around 7 PM, we only had to wait 15... More

My little family of 4 ate at this restaurant on a Wed evening. I had the pene noodles which were amazing. My husband had the steak and my girls had a split meal of Alfredo. The bill total was $71 for the four of us. That's not too bad considering we were in the city. However we were finished eating... More

There was nothing I liked about the food. It was the local hangout for the local people...we did not feel safe walking back to the hotel.

We've eaten here many times through the years and nothing ever changes. It's like stepping into the 60s where the food is always good. You can't go wrong with the fried chicken and the French Dip is tender. They even asked how I wanted the beef cooked, which rarely happens. It's dark and old-fashioned but everything seems to work just... More

Great food, service was a bit slow... Maybe understaffed for V-Day. Pre-fixed menu for the night, so choices looked limited. The girlie got braised short ribs which she loved. I got prime rib which was above average, but not the best. Ambience was old school english pub/steakhouse. Four stars for Daly City.

We kept passing this restaurant because of the negative reviews. However we tried it and the food was excellent and the portions very large. The atmosphere was old fashioned and more like a pub but it was fine and seemed to have repeat customers.

Visited while staying in the area for work. Had the prime rib dinner. Baked potato was good along with the prime rib. Service overall was attentive. This was a good choice.
