Great, healthy dinner

My wife heard about this place that's a farm to table restaurant that we had to try. Incredible!! The service was excellent and the food was great! We had the Amish Chicken- amazing! Cannot wait to go back!

The rating for my mixed drinks was a 5, for the food a 2.5. Salmon that was supposed to be lightly glazed was covered by what looked & tasted like mediocre bbq sauce. Veggies sautéed. ...greasy. Will not revisit. Owner: Get a new (better) chef!!!

This place has decent food, but it honestly doesn't taste any better than any decent chain restaurant. The problem is that the prices for adult dinner entrees are outrageously high for the quality and quantity. Perhaps that works with folks who think they're "eating healthy" because it's farm-to-table, but the reality is that all food is farm-to-table. I ordered the... More

Hands down, my favorite place to eat in town. It can be a little on the pricy side, but, we have yet to be disappointed by any aspect of it. Well worth spending a few extra dollars on if you can.

We visited Valley for the first time on a Thursday night. When we arrived shortly after 4:30, we were the first customers so that gave us a chance to look over the restaurant. A big board at the front lists all the local suppliers Valley uses. I guess I expected "farm" decor because of the farm to table theme. Was... More

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.
