Went here for a work dinner on a Tuesday evening. The place was not crowded and the service was acceptable. We love the decor of the place and the ambiance was very nice. However, I just have to say that the food was just not up to expectations for anyone in our party. I had the duck which was overcooked... More

Was looking for a nearby restaurant and Found Valley Inn. Ambiance was that of a steady neighborhood restaurant that has been a fixture for many years. Food, while not fancy, was good. Prices were reasonable. Would definitely return if in the area again. 3.5 stars.

We tried this restaurant for the first time for a Saturday date night dinner. I ordered the prime rib and my husband had the pot roast. He gave it a 10 out of 10. My prime rib was tasty and was a very generous size. The thousand island salad dressing was amazing and in house made. We had the carrot... More

Unique, old-school dining and bar environment.....it has been in business since 1947. Interesting, comfortable, untrendy. All six in our party enjoyed their food. They loved the special soup, a mixture of white and red clam chowders. Salad dressings are homemade and very tasty. It would have been quieter in the room we were in if there weren't so many regular... More

The wife and I were staying at a hotel on Sepulveda in Sherman oaks, that only had a Denny's, and we wanted something more upscale. I googled restaurants and found this gem. Wonderful decor, from a time long gone, but well kept. The service and food were excellent. Our server Mark was just fantastic, friendly and efficient. We each had... More

I've been here on a few work trips. I love the old school supper club feel. Menu ranges from steaks to seafood to burgers. I had the beef stroganoff with mashed potatoes and minestrone soup. It was flavorful but a bit soupy. This is a perfect stop for a hearty meal and cocktail after a long work day when traveling... More

Yummy food, somewhat pricey, but get on their email list for specials. We love the two lobster tail special. Like dining with the Rat Pack, nice clubby atmosphere. Friendly and attentive service. A lovely little gem of a restaurant.

Valley Inn takes you back in time when Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley were growing and still maintaining a friendly place to visit and enjoy a good meal. The bar is old style and the food is excellent. The owners are very friendly and warm to customers. A great place to enjoy lunch or dinner or a drink... More
