No matter what you eat at Valenca you will not be unhappy. My co workers took me there for my birthday and we had a blast. Great sangria. Great family restaurant. Steak and seafood on the stone to die for.

Food n service always Great. Live 1 block away, never been disappointed. If busy worth the wait. Good things take time. Great food, cooked fresh takes a little longer. And the prices will blow your mind.

Loads of good food for a great price. Always many customers. Only drawback is the parking. In a residential neighberhood with few driveways.

When I travel, I never go to the same restaurant twice - no longer. We had dinner in the bar the last two nights and I will be back. Both nights we had to wait for a table, but not too long and had a stop at the bar to start with a glass of very inexpensive (but adequate) wines.... More

2nd visit to this restaurant. Parking available. With a reservation, after changing table, had to wait a little while to be seated. Waiter service was terrific. Salad and bread were brought to the table even before we ordered. Appetizers were delicious (octopus, mussels and Chourizo and Shrimp). We had Sangria - delicious. Three of us had steak ( T-bone, Filet... More

On our way back from NYC we stopped here for dinner based on a friend's recommendation. The food was absolutely excellent. Our group had Spanish sausage (chorizo) as the appetizer, and one of those was enough for the four of us. Our main dishes were 'stuffed flounder with crab meat', 'whiting with two jumbo shrimp', and 'shellfish combination dinner for... More
