This restaurant in Carmel Valley Ranch is terrific. Great food, good portions and very efficient and friendly wait staff. Welcoming for families with small children as well.

We celebrated our 10 year anniversary on Friday March 17th, at the Valley Kitchen. The view is fantastic, we sat in the newer section back by the pool. Beautiful, the whole place is a bit louder than you want for an intimate dinner, but still...More
