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.
great indoor and outdoor seating options (even in the cold. Food is delicious.
Perfect as always. The best around.
Thank you again Elio
Loved the food and the energy! The steak and seafood were so good and all of the staff were so accommodating to our needs. Amazing experience and we will be coming back again.
Loved the food and ambiance! Will definitely recommend to a friend and family members.

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.
Loved Valbella. The food was so delicious, and the service was just as great. Extremely attentive staff. I will definitely return to Valbella.
too cold towards end of evening -- torches not enough to provide heat outside
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 eating outside environment! Owner and staff are very attentive.
Amazing!! This was our first time trying Valbella and already looking forward to our next!
Excellent restaurant & Exceptional service. Definitely recommend this place.
The outdoor dining section was really nice. Great food and wine!
2nd time here, food and ambiance are wonderful. Service is excellent as well
Sweet 16 Birthday
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!
Lovely court yard.
Was good with nice live music
THE SERVICE WAS HORRIBLE THE PERSON IN CHARGE WAS SO RUDE IT WAS MY BIRTHDAY HE MADE ME AND MY FAMILY CRY
Valbella serves outstanding modern takes on Italian classic dishes, have been to all of their restaurants, first formal dining, even though outdoors was super, great kitchen, great service! The Cotoletta Parmigiana, veal chop pounded Milanese style with fresh mozzarella and lightest tomato sauce, almost a tomato au jus, was delicious, five stars, best I have had in awhile! Definitely looking forward to reopening for indoor dining from the social quarantine.
Service was superb and the food delicious!
Loved this restaurant which is outside but not really on the street. The waterfalls add to the beautiful set up. Food is very good as well as service. I found a bit striking that fish was not in the Menu. All fish dishes are considered to be "specials" A bit unusual. But apart from this all the rest was excellent.
Outdoor dining was terrible because there were SO many bugs due to the waterfall wall.
Food And service very good. We had trouble hearing right next to the waterfall.
Valbella is superb! The menu has many fine offerings, however from my expert critique point of view, I highly encourage you to go with the specials. I had the grilled prawns to start. These were absolutely delicious. -charred to perfection and topped with lump crab meat. I also had in special, the chilean sea bass. This was grilled perfectly, lightly seasoned. We had a plethora of appetizers like the calamari and zucchini- excellent.
Add good company and you’re all set.
I had the pleasure of doing outdoor dining and the experience was perfect in all ways.
The outdoor venue is very attractive what with a continuous waterfall and the barks of trees lit like Christmas. You do not feel like you are eating on the street. The food was very well prepared. We wanted a glass of wine, instead of a bottle, but we didn't know from where the wines came.
We would eat there again.
Outstanding venue. Nothing better in Manhattan.
Food was delicious! Service was friendly! We even got live trumpet music 🎺 ! The atmosphere was great! The only minor complaint I have was the little bugs, but I guess it’s unavoidable dining outdoors in the summer.
The cigar and cigarette smoking of diners this evening, and during the time of COVID, most definitely spoiled the ambiance and was a cause for concern for me and my dining partner. Understanding it is outdoors, they should be assigned to a designated and isolated area of the outdoor space. The odor was disruptive.
