The place is great. The person who wrote the bad review is more than likely ipset that he didn't find a cockroach in his food hence depriving him of a free meal. I give it 5 stars and I give the person who wrote the crap review a 0 for lying like a POS.
This place is amazing! My wife and I have been there twice since we've moved to Tampa the servers have been very professional and the the service has been great. I think it is much better than the Columbia. The food at the Valencia is better, very affordable and it's located right in the city. The meal I got last at the Columbia tasted like the food was prepared in bulk and was sitting there all day. Dishes such as the paella at the Valencia are prepared while you wait and are amazing. I'm not sure why this place has received such sub-par reviews, but it's just not fair. Try it and you'll be back!
Take out orders .... please be sure to check your entire order because without fail, you'lll get back to work and something will be missing. Today the yellow rice was not included with our black beans. Upon calling the restaurant, they were not helpful and only offered to give us a credit. Upon further pressure to accommodate us, they agreed to hand deliver the rice to us. We'll see how that shakes out. Next time I'll take my own advice and unpack the back and confirm we have our entire order. The do have THE BEST black beans and yellow rice.
As a native Tampan, I can only say, charitably, that Valencia Garden isn't nearly what it used to be. It can usually be counted on to be a disappointment if taking guests. No worse than Columbia and less annoying.
I was quite disappointed with my visit to Vaencia restaurant. The chicken was mediocre at best. Furthermore, the service was deplorable. Specifically, the waitress was unprofessional, rude and flippant. There were long periods when we needed service and the waitress could not be found. Also, the prices for lunch seem to be as expensive as dinner. There is no separate lunch menu, and the prices are high and not worth the price. The ambiance was poor, and in essence, I would never go back again.
