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 It is alittle outdated but the food is very good and I think for the area very reasonably priced.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

This was an ideal place to unwind from a hectic week of work. Val's has an excellent menu; prompt service; and very good food. My serving was much too large to be able to eat all of it but the meat had been cooked to the proper temperature and all the side dishes were good. The appetizer of French Onion... More

Nothing spectacular. Food is inconsistent and mediocre. Seems to be a hang out for long time patrons and club members hang out for periodic meetings. Suggest nearby Boulevard Restaurant.

The service is always excellent from the bar to the personal service in the dining room. The ambience is retro and homey the bar has good drinks and the prime rib (my favorite) is always excellent. I've had seafood there also ie. sandabs when available, sole, salmon is well seasoned and veggies are not overcooked. Val's gives a memorable dining... More

Val's can be very good or very bad. There is no consistency and it is very hit and miss. On one visit I had a steak and it was delicious. The next time I had fried chicken and the chicken was not cooked through. Service is okay. I do like that they refrigerate the salad plates and forks.
