Our waiter Mike was the absolute best. This was our first time visiting this location and will be returning to see him.

We had an incredible experience at Valbella, from our server, to the food and all the top notch care in between, it was an overall fantastic experience. Highly recommend!


Menu selection is average; pricy, very noisy, def not for a romantic evening.


The food continues to be excellent and the staff very attentive. All in all, a first rate experience.


Wow. Outstanding. Service + Food, I’d give 10 stars if I could. Went with my Family for my birthday and it was truly incredible. Steak, Fish and Pasta entrees were outstanding!


Went for special occasion. Service was excellent, with the waiter giving good suggestions and being very attentive and professional. Price was high but not outlandish for a high-end place like this. My wife's grilled octopus starter was tasty but a bit on the small side, but in these inflationary times portions are getting shrinked. Food was very good but not stellar (we've eaten in our fair share of restaurants in Manhattan, London, Paris, Rome, etc). My breaded veal was fine but not to die for. We each had a glass of the "house wine" -- Pinot Grigio and Chianti -- both were stellar in taste and quality at $18/glass (not crazy). The place is known for its wine selection, so no suprises here. Our dining experience was positive -- ambience, service, wines were great. Food was solid. Would go again for special occasion!


Great food. Even better service from the entire staff, especially Arthur our waiter. They have an amazing wine cellar with some tables where you can dine too!


Thank you for an unbelievable experience! We traveled from NJ which was 2 hours away, we were staying the weekend. Wish there was a restaurant near were we lived with this food and amazing service. I can't say enough! The matre de not sure if he was the owner, but was sooo accommodating....We entered the bar to receive our drinks and the bartender gave us amazing cheese and meats to pick on while our table was being set. We were about to seat earlier than we anticipated and the whole experience from food, service and ambiance was a big 10!!! Highly recommend. My husband is Italian and very picky and it was such high quality delish!!! Doreen from NJ


As always, the food, service and ambience were all perfect. The seafood combination appetizer is always a must and the sea bass equaled its reputation. A great evening.


Great restaurant with excellent food and perfect service! A bit noisy when full, but still outstanding!

Wonderful menu, taste fantastic, reception amazing.But the bread for side is was not good flavor to match with the menu.Very recommend for family dinner!


We heard about Valbella from a customer that lives in the area and they said was fantastic. Ok we went we saw, we ate, we loved. The outstanding part of this restaurant was the service. From the maitre d down to the bus people super friendly! The food was what to expect from an upscale Greenwich restaurant. Of course super high prices but delicious food. You get what you pay for. The seafood is very fresh and the desserts heavenly. All in all 5 stars! We will be back
