Even though I feel like we are regulars, I want to commend Valle publicly. We’ve been dining at this little gem for years and it is consistently excellent. Even better is when you get lucky enough to have Jennifer as your waitress - she’s outstanding - always remember us, is attentive, so sweet and friendly and she always ensures we have a great experience. I definitely recommend Valle. More

Contemporary American | Wilmington, Delaware

I am a frequent customer here, and love the food and service. The new menu is very good, but I think they missed with the a few items. The Gin cured salmon, while well presented, did not hint to being cured with anything, much less Gin. The Beef Bourgogne, was the most disappointing for me, as it was a very small piece of beef, and mostly fat. This is far away from Burgundy's classic dish. On the good side, the Beef Cheek Ravioli were very good, and the whole fish was also excellent. The service, as usual, excellent. More
