After reading other reviews about Valencia Luncheria I must say that my visit did not live up to others acclaim for the venue. For one, it could be that I eat this type of cuisine on a more regular basis, or because I may have higher standards but all things considered it would detract from anyone's experience when a portion...

After recommendations from friends we've tried to eat here a few times, until recently the wait has always been 1-2 hours... it's that popular. This time we arrived at 11:30 for lunch and were seated immediately, so definitely aim for "off peak". We had a mango batido which was fresh and creamy, plus coffee which is excellent (Venezuelan). For our... More

We used to love this place when it was a small restaurant with great food, a bit off the grid. But through glowing reviews on TP and others it exploded and is now more a happening than restaurant. Cool vibe, great food, friendly service but ouch it is loud and there is almost always a significant wait (in the crowded... More

Place is consistently good, great selection of tapas and some pretty darn good full meals as well. Cocktails are top notch handcrafted my favorite is the BLT. Tried the pork and clams this last visit it was really tasty sounded like a strange combo but I have to say it was good and filling I will try it again. If... More

My wife and I love this place, we started eating here when it was a little 7 table cafe, hosted our rehearsal dinner the first month they move into their new space and we eat here at least twice a month. Whether you dinner, breakfast, or bruch-- this is the pace to go.

I don't know why I didn't know about this local spot living in Norwalk 13 years now and only 1 1/2 miles from Valencia Luncheria. This place came up in a conversation recently when I mentioned seeing this place packed solid with people over the summer while getting my coffee across the street at a fast food place. I would...

From handmade cocktails to handmade from scratch food - this is one of my favorite restaurants. There are lots of places that try to produce this cuisine but none come close to this one. What is also impressive is that every time we visit, it is always delicious and a fun experience. We started with Civiche and two Aprepas, a... More

Great food, fun ambiance, always busy. This isn't one of the top rated restaurants in Norwalk for nothing. I always liked my meals here, and the cilantro sauce they have on the table is pretty darn good.

You can't go wrong with anything on this menu. Every single bite is made with love and quality ingredients. Some of my faves are the Chocolate and Chili Ribs, spinach and cheese empanadas, beef empanadas....pretty much any empanada. The arepas are fantastic the drinks are fantastic and well priced. The people that work here are fantastic! We love this place.

What's not to love about this place?! Doesn't look like much from the outside, but step inside and get immediately caught up in the vibe of Valencia. The entire menu is on a huge chalkboard that can easily be read while waiting for your table. Specials are posted. If you don't know what you want when you sit down, ask... More
