My experience at Valentino was no what I had expected. We went on a Friday evening and it was qutie quiet. Waitstaff was very attentive and considerate but the food...good but not great. We had some friends that really loved the food...so we went on their recommendation. It didn't wow me. We will trying it again another night in hopes... More

Complimentary breakfast means $12.00. The slightly above average buffet is over $20.00. Before being seated, don't be naive like I was and fail to ask about prices even if you have a complimentary breakfast card.

If not for our server Dani, I would have rated this all a terrible experience. The food was warm, for all of my party. The food took forever to arrive and the restaurant was almost empty. One couple complained and then received exceptional service, it should be like that for everyone at all times.

It took forever to get someone to take our order even though there were few customers. The food was mediocre, at best, and rather pricey for what we ordered. It seems the only customers eating there were staying at hotel. This was probably more than likely due to the terrible traffic situation around the hotel.

The atmosphere was not what we were expecting; the people there were not the type of people (specially women) you want to introduce to your family or hang with. We were just 20 people in the whole bar in a Friday night...boring

Casual, relaxed atmosphere in the Bar, and excellent appetizers at reasonable prices. Drinks were a little pricey.

Valentino is always consistent and the staff is great. It's my favorite thing about the Hotel Derek. I highly recommend their brunch, it's one of the best in Houston.

This place is in a trendy hotel but it has the feel of a stand alone Martini Bar. The place is usually busiest at Happy Hour time but goes pretty late as well. Plenty of people watching opportunities here. It is a very interesting place.
