Outside dining is noisy because of a waterfall.
Inside was also noisy, but that was related to the clientele.
The food and service were excellent. However, for the price, I would expect the clientele to dress more appropriately. Many 20 through 30 year olds showing up in sweatpants, torn jeans, old tee shirts, etc., on a Saturday night. There were other dinners dressed more appropriately, but overall, it felt like a New York restaurant transplanted to Vegas, with a typical Vegas clientele. Maybe when the pandemic has passed, the restaurant might consider enforcing their advertised dress code of business casual. Or, maybe it’s just a sign of the times. However, we dine out a lot, and we don’t see this at other similarly priced or even less expensive restaurants.

It was wonderful getting out after nearly a year in quarantine. We dined outdoors in a comfortable setting and enjoyed a fabulous meal! Specials of the day included Chilean Sea Bass and stuffed Tiger Prawn appetizer. What a treat and as always, the Veal Chop grilled to perfection! Looking forward to many more dinners in the future.

We were seated near someone who was allowed to smoke a cigar. The smell interfered with our meal and was a bit rude in general. The food itself was sub-par. Very very expensive menu comparable to cipriani without the quality. No reason to come here other than convenience. $600+ for 4 people. This money would be better spent somewhere else. Insulting prices for the quality of food. Went to Scampi the night before. Similar pricing and much much better food

We requested to seat outside at the covered terrace but there were several people smoking cigars at two tables and we had to move inside.

We ordered Mussels Mariniere and they were not fresh, definitely dry and reheated, the Mariniere Sauce extremely salty.

On the other hand service was very good and courteous.

First time dining outside at Valbella since early dinner in December. It has added a spectacular three-story high glass roof with overhead heating for it’s always wonderful large outdoor area. The sparkling holiday trees remain along the spacious waterfall wall. Next meal will be inside as chilly March evenings return. We have confidence that experienced staff will continue Covid-19 safety precautions. As always Valbella is a five star dining experience. So glad it continues its long term excellence.

We were very put off by a couple at an adjacent table both smoking cigars. While it was outdoor dining, the dining area was completely enclosed and the smoke was quite bothersome.

A bit surprised over the price on “the today’s special” - an amazing truffle risotto, the best risotto I have ever had⭐️ We would have been informed about the prize of $140 /port. when we ordered 1 full size and 2 half size.
A great evening with the best service and food!

Valbella has always been a lovely spot to dine. They have risen to the challenge of outdoor dining and the ridiculous 25%. Always love it there and the owner is so nice.

First time visiting this restaurant, but it won’t be my last! Unbelievable service, delicious food, great outdoor seating environment and even a trumpet player! We were celebrating a birthday and the wait staff went out of their way to make it a special occasion. We will definitely be back again in the very near future!

First time back since early August. Love the calm off the sidewalk outdoor dining nestled between office buildings. Leaves are changing color. Waterfall wall is still soothing. Strong adjustable vertical heat lamps on for cooler weather. Covid-19 precautions continue. Saw returning patrons. Excellent shared late lunch of scallops with foie gras, perfectly cooked medium rare filet mignon with roasted potatoes and assorted vegetables, chocolate lava cake and tiramisu. Good bottle of red wine.
We will be slow to return to indoor dining. Valbella is a place we trust to do it safely.

Great to be back in NYC and to one of our go to restaurants! Awesome outdoor seating area, beautifully lit trees and soothing water fountain. Service and Food was very good as usual, we shared salads, pastas, steak and Seafood. Only hit was the background music was a little funky, did not fit the vibe. Will see you again!
