Out to dinner last night with some close friends who enjoy fine dining as we do. Jeremy's creativity is always a treat. From the cheeses and sausages to the unique soups, followed by perfectly prepared swordfish, pork tenderloin, and salmon then finished with an outstanding chocolate mousse we had a fantastic meal. The wine selection is superb as well. Unequivocally... More

Since we were in the final stages of moving to TX, we decided to make a final visit to a restaurant we've enjoyed many time while living in Bakersfield. And, they did not disappoint. Excellent food and great service.

I thought that I had some great meals in the past, but this last Friday they outdid themselves. The food is always great and the service is better. I can't say enough good things about Valentien's

This has been my go to restaurant in Bakersfield for many years, but I had not been through Bakersfield since 2013. On our way to rafting on Kern River, we dined here. Nothing much has changed, thus is still a fine restaurant and would be the same if it were in New York, LA or SF. We brought bubbly, red... More

This restaurant, in the words of the owner combines traditional French food with farm to table. Our host was personable and available during our meal. The food didn't disappoint. My duck breast and husbands steak au poivre were both cooked to perfection. The dessert soufflé was very good and cooked to order. Service was very attentive and the wine suggested... More

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

We've been as couples, with friends & family, ANY times a GREAT time to go to Valentien's! Jeremy the proprietor is warm, humorous, a family man & so knowledgeable about wine & wine pairing with the beautiful & delicious food that comes out of he & his partners kitchen. On Fridays only, are they open for lunch, so be sure... More
