I absolutely love Valencia!!! My kids do as well! I have never had a bad meal there. My kids love all of the empenada choices. I love the "Blue Plate" lunch special. They have great bloody mary's!! My only suggestion is that it is not a place to go when you are in a hurry. I don't mind that though,... More

I've had the distinct pleasure of eating here on more than a few occasions. The food, service, and atmosphere are always great. Pricing is very reasonable. No matter what day or time you come, expect to find it crowded -- and possibly a wait to be seated. The tables are packed in here tight with no wasted space. If you're... More

I love this place! Food is fantastic and the atmosphere is lively and energetic. This is definitely not the place for a romantic meal. There is always a line and they like to turn over tables fairly quickly. Brunch is often VERY crowded and they only take reservations for 6 or more. However, they are worth the wait. Try the...

There is no doubt that Valencia serves excellent food. The point of this review, however, is that Valencia provides a poor restaurant experience based on its lack of parking, cramped seating, and rushed service. Valencia would be a great choice for take out if not for its parking issues. At my family's last visit we were met by our all... More

We had a chance eat at the Valencia few times. They have a nice selection of tapas and usually some very tasty daily specials. We usually share several traps with my wife. We have, yet to be disappointed It is reasonably priced and the margaritas are large. It is not the classy, upscale restaurant, but the food is really good.... More
