This restaurant closed recently. The restaurant was replaced by a place called "Ricochet" This is now a taco bar. A little expensive. Not bad but I think 5-6$ for 1 taco ala cart is a little much.

We have been to Valley a few times and each time we enjoy it more. The ambiance is wonderful and homey. The service is very professional, the wait staff is always there to bring and remove dishes, but do not "hover". The food is wonderful.

Great selection and knowledge at the bar. We had several different martini's (Blood Orange was the favorite) prior to the meal. Nice choice to sit at the bar overlooking the kitchen as a change of pace. We began with the truffle fries as a starter and were not disappointed, great flavor with the perfect texture. We all had something different... More

My husband and I moved away from the area 11 years ago and only make it back home a few times a year. Given the opportunity to leave the kids with Grandma and Grandpa, we slipped out to check out downtown kid-free. Everyone insisted we check out Valley Kitchen and Bar and it did not disappoint. Beautiful atmosphere with an... More

Another excellent Valparaiso restaurant. Food is farm to table and always great. It's another mid to fine dining so kids can be there but I don't see many there.

This is a restaurant that prides itself on it's farm to table approach. The menu is small, but the dishes are wonderful. Everything is fresh and cooked to order. I highly recommend the bar overlooking the kitchen.

I stopped in for a light meal while on a business trip in the area. My hotel was not far away so it was very convenient. The food was good as was the wine and my server was great! Would definitely go back.

Very nice food. All dishes are made with fresh locally grown ingredients. They do not freeze or heat up and reuse anything. It is rather expensive though. Their kids meals are reasonably priced and great. They have amazing chicken strips.
