Not only were we in heaven with the food and wine we chose (best Filet Mignon and chocolate souffle ever), the service was above and beyond our expectations. Matt served us and helped us to pick the right wine with so much patience. When we told him about our trip to Paso Robles for Wine Tasting, he went out of... More

On Fridays only, are they open for lunch, so be sure... More

Valentien never disappoints. The menu is creative and delicious and I have never had a bad meal there. I have had the chicken, the steak, the vegetable ribbon "pasta", lots of salads and desserts. The field greens salad has a wonderfully light dressing. I enjoy the heirloom tomato salad with burratta, and I love the incorporation of lemon basil. The... More

The restaurant is small but the staff provides Excellent Service with a smile. The menu is simple and offers delectable variety whilst the wine list is carefully curated. It is worthy of the price points offered and I shall return again to enjoy the warm smiles and excellent service.

My wife and I have eaten here several times since my last review and it has been wonderful each time, but the last time it was over the top. I had the caviar appetizer and it was incredible. Better than I have any other place in the world including Russia. Every Entrée I have tried has been great with the... More

The food was outstanding. Wine wonderful. We sat outside early this evening, and the weather was perfect. I admit the street noise can be a bit much. Having said that, it was quieter than many restaurants are inside. The food was so good I almost forgot to mention the service. It was wonderful. Attentive, but not the least intrusive. So... More

We went here for a romantic dinner. The food was absolutely fantastic, and service could not have been better. We will definitely be returning. The only reason for the four stars vs five stars was atmosphere and plating. Food this wonderful deserves a more sumptuous setting and better presentation. It would have really kicked it up a notch!
