Food was from average to not good. Val was dry and there was more bread than meet. Service was slow, we need to wait more than 5 minutes to be seated despite the fact that restaurant was almost empty and there was no one else waiting.

Went here because it was in easy walking distance from the hotel in which we were staying. A very popular restaurant that may have accounted for us waiting a while for a waitress, but the wait was well worth it. We shared an excellent dinner salad which the waitress split for us, and then shared a fabulous linguine with clam... More

Dinner was good. Location a bit old style. We had filet, ribs and sirloin. Good beer but plain mineral water was not available (only from the tap). I do not remember the name of the waiter, but she has been very kind.

Val's was an unexpected surprise. After traveling all day our hotel clerk suggested this restaurant about a block away. We enjoyed a really good meal - broiled salmon - in a comfortable setting. The wait staff was friendly and very attentive. A bit on the expensive side for what you get. And the restaurant's decor is a somewhat dated. Given... More

The best food ever! Everything is always fresh and cooked to perfection. Wait staff is always nice... Many restaurants have come in go over here I'm so happy when I come to Daly City that Val's is still there

This restaurant, unwittingly, is set apart from the majority of eating establishments of today. It's genuine vintage charm create a calm ambiance seemingly unaffected by the changing times. Vals offer a delicious American fare. The waitstaff are efficient and courteous. It’s the type of restaurant where generations of family continue to come. It is also a venue: I've attended 2...

Val's is a moderately upscale restaurant/lounge with a regular crowd that is welcoming to guests. I was greeted upon entry and offered seating in the main dinning room or spacious lounge (Karoke Th-Sat) - I opted for the lounge purely for my own entertainment. The food was very good (tasteful) overall. I ordered the special: halibut, veggies, and au gratin... More

This is our second time eating here and I think it was better than the first. It is alittle outdated but the food is very good and I think for the area very reasonably priced. We had the rib eye and it was very flavorful and tender. I wish I could remember our waitresses name, she was very knowledgeable and... More

Dined here for one night while staying at the Hampton Inn a few doors down. Our first experience in a US eatery. The meals were good, reasonably priced at first glance but once taxes and tips were added it was a little too expensive for us - I suspect the poor exchange rate wouldn't have helped here. If I was... More
