Good food

We like this restaurant and their farm to fork mantra so we try to support it. Service can be a little slow so we always budget time for that when we decide to dine here:)

Looking for some food on a work trip to Valparaiso and found Valley Reataurant. Unfortunately, they only had a very limited late night menu available. it was a bit after 8 pm on a Monday night so maybe on other nights it stays open later. Shared the Truffle fries Which had Truffle Oil, and Parmesan cheese. Very good. Had a... More

I thought the menu left a little to be desired. Not a lot of choices. The food was good but the prices were quite high. Atmosphere is very plain.

Great place with great food. I loved it! I bring others often. I like the freshness of the food and ingredients. The staff is friendly and the place is small and cozy. All of it is locally sourced and I support that.

Valley still is one of my favorite restaurants in Valpo. The staff is friendly, the bartender skilled and able to produce great coctails and the food is delicious. I went for the soup of the day, a lentil mushroom soup which was served in a cup and was only $2 as I skipped the house salad that came with the... More

Four of us ate at Valley last night and the food was simply great. Started with fried pickles and we were presented with a bowl of lightly breaded goodies. Way more than expected. Two in our party had the ravioli, wonderful flavor, and I chose the special, rib eye. Probably the best steak I've ever had. Thank you Valley, for... More

This is a wonderful farm to table restaurant. Owned by a wonderful young couple, they strive to serve fresh, innovative dishes. We eat here weekly, and you really cannot order anything that is not delicious.
