My friends and I tried various drinks. I loved their blood orangetini (outstanding) but I also tried their midwest mule. My friends loved their cucumber martini and pineapple down side up martini. The drinks and service were outstanding! The prices are comparable to Chicago. I'll definitely go back to try their food!!

Fun atmosphere, delicious food and great service. The pork chop is my favorite. Plus I love there cocktails, the bartender always makes me a cucumber martini that is to die for!

My husband and I tried this restaurant for the first time and loved it. He had their soup (Potato and Spinach) and it was delicious! He also had the Pasta dish and I had Trout, and both were great. I also had a drink from the bar, it was called Strawberry Mojito, very good but very weak. The presentation of... More

EVERYTHING about this place is special except for the acoustics. VERY loud restaurant and would probably not be good for a business dinner. Food and service are outstanding, prices are very fair especially when compared to Chicago...or any other large city where you would see this quality. Will definitely go back!!

This restaurant boasts farm fresh locally grown ingredients. There is a nice variety of choices on the menu, which changes based on what is locally available. The seasonings used in the cooking and preparation nicely bring out the flavor of each specific entree. There is great attention to presentation as well. This is definitely an 'upscale' establishment that makes you... More

Having been to the Valley on 3 different occasions I can say it is one of the best places I have eaten. There are always unique dishes based on the time of year and what they can get locally. The soups are excellent. The only thing that would make the soups and salads more enjoyable is a bread being served... More

My fiance and I stumbled upon this place one night and thought we would give it a try. We sat at the bar and had great service. To start we got the potato soup which was super creamy and delicious. For dinner I had a salad with chicken and my fiance got the fish. My salad was very good but... More

I stopped at Valley Kitchen last night for the first time, while visiting Valpo. I was very pleased with our entire experience. I ordered the pork chop and it was one of the best I've ever had! The plate looked like it was from a 5 star restaurant. My girlfriend had the Fish & Chips and it too was excellent.... More

We were very early for our dinner reservation - NOTE Valley does not usually take reservations but for Valentine's Day they did - but the very polite and friendly hostess asked if we would like to be seated early. We said we were meeting another couple, the hostess informed us our friends actually beat us to restaurant and due to... More
