Great food and cocktails. Perfect for lunch or dinner. We enjoy going here for lunch occasionally, not too busy. We sit at the bar, order appetizers and cocktails and usually end up talking with the bartender and whoever else is sitting at the bar.

The ambience of this place is just romantic. It was date night so I was dress for the occasion. Who would have thought this little gem was so close to home. People were friendly and nice. They were very patient with us since it was our first time there!

we were recommended by the hotel staff. We sat down right away and Monica took care of us immediately. The food was very good and the cocktails followed quickly. When you're in the neighborhood, make this a destination.

Stopped by here for Happy Hour on a Wed night. Since there wasn't a lot of space on the bar, we opted to sit at a table, not realizing the Happy Hour specials are limited to the bar. Got the wings, zucchini fries, nachos and bulgogi. Think the zucchini fries were my favorite. Liked the bulgogi, but felt it was... More

We went to brunch on Sunday and used our Groupon. I'm always a little worried when dining out with a Groupon because there seems to be an issue. Not at MK Valencia. The staff was knowledgeable and gave us many options. I've always heard of this place but never been. I plan on going back to try them for dinner.

I had only been to MK Valencia once before I booked it for a private party. We had 75 people and chose the Jumbo shrimp, mini crab cakes, chicken empanadas, filet mignon sliders, chicken skewers, and beef skewers. All were delicious! We had both inside and outside area's available to us. The night was a huge success. Monica was a... More
