Great food choked down cheek by jowl followed by the bum's rush

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... read 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

I have been to Valencia many times. The food is always good, as is the staff. Fun, inviting atmosphere, and quite often, a good crowd. Sometimes it' hard to get in. The only downfall is that there is very little parking even on the street. But definitely worth the trip!

Delicious menu, we tried several different items all were great! Wine selection was much better than we expected. Prices very reasonable. They also have outside dining which we will try in warmer weather. Can get crowded sometimes with a wait during weekends, but worth it!!

Delicious food. Try the crab cakes eggs Benedict for brunch. The mole spareribs are fantastic! Parking can be an issue, but, it's worth it.

I tend to eat here for breakfast. Love the salmon omelettes with cream cheese. Comes with black beans Great green sauce goes with almost everything. Used to talk to Michael alot but I think he is busy now with a new place in Fairfield. Haven't tried that place yet.

Visited here again. The place continues to serve great food with specials of the day supplementing their regular menu. The staff is happy, busy, and doing a great job with a steady flow of customers, who are often lingering near the entrance and many of the tables that are packed into the small space. The food is outstanding, and the... More

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
