I loved this place when I lived in the area years ago. I hadn't been back in awhile, so while passing through yesterday, I dropped in. I have found that a lot of places I love have taken a nosedive in food/service quality during the...pandemic. This place has not. The food was extraordinary--the value and quality for the money cannot be beat. Everything was prepared perfectly--great flavor and the right temperature. The skirt steak was large enough to feed me for four meals, easily. The service was absolutely unmatched. The waitstaff really listens to you and wants to make your experience top-notch, even while facing the challenges of restrictions and additional sanitation. I was having a rough day, and this visit absolutely made my night. From start to finish, the experience could not have been better. Many restaurants are challenged during this time, but this one will undoubtedly survive because they know how to adapt and overcome and they never disappoint, even during the worst of times. I love you all.More

Food was ok Big portions that was good The bartender girl was nice The server sucks During the dinner only came once just to get our order the rest of the time he was just talking to his coo-workers. If I am going to spend...that kind of money I want a good serviceMore

Paella, seafood in a copper pot and lots of amazing appetizers to share. We had a great experience. Didn't try it but the flaming sausage appetizer looked amazing. Room gets a little smokey when diners cook meat on the hot stone.

Looking for an excellent, reasonably priced, authentic meal, look no further than Valenca Restaurant. Delicious seafood and beef dishes. Save room for dessert.

The food was absolutely delicious. I had the shrimp scampi and it was so full of flavor. My husband had the stuffed lobster and he loved his as well. The service was awesome and the atmosphere was nice. I only wish I lived closer so...I could go again!!More

One of my favorite places to dine. Great food, friendly service and the menu has SO much to offer. I did the steak and lobster tail on the stone. Very fun to cook on a hot stone at your table. If you havent tried it...yet, you should! It's a great experience and something to do while sharing a meal with that special someone.More
