Staff, food, cleanliness, atmosphere - all great. Best local joint in the county. Love the farm to table atmosphere. Gunther the owner does it right here. Try his Tierra farms as well.

Enjoy a casual family friendly place with nice staff, very accommodating. Farm to table, made to order. Best burger, salads, tacos, good selection of beer, wine and spirits.

On street parking only but no meters.

I am a pescatarian so I find it had to find meals at most restaurants, but here at the Valatie Bar and Grill, I can always find something to eat. They have a delicious veggie burger and on Mondays they have an amazing fish taco special. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a great meal for a great price. It is not a fancy place, but it is a great family atmosphere and the service is spectacular!

Tucked into mostly sleepy Main Street in the Valatie is the cute little Valatie Bar and Grill, which is part a comfortable bar with the pre-requisite multiple television sets (including by the tables, which I could do without so I could actually enjoy some eye contact with my husband). It is also part trendy, casual, organic restaurant, with an array of delicious dishes, ranging from small plates and appetizers, to wonderful salads, to sandwiches and larger plates and specials. Everything is super fresh and feels healthy, even when you're munching on the scrumptious fries or onion straws. It is owned by Tierra Farms, which is a terrific local business that produces many nuts, dried fruits and coffees so they don't scrimp on these special touches at the restaurant. I had the Cranberry, Pecan and Gorgonzola Salad which was wonderful, but I think it had an entire cup of Tierra Farms Pecans and cranberries on it! No skimping here! As a pescatarian (no meat but I do eat fish) it was nice to find a lot of vegetarian dishes, such as a vegan soup special and the best Veggie Burger I think I've ever had (add the sauteed mushrooms and onions for a special treat). I enjoyed the Buffalo Shrimp Nachos, but I would suggest that they prepare the shrimp by sauteeing them and making them a little more crispy. They seem to prepare the shrimp in each dish like they would a shrimp cocktail, and then add whatever sauce to the boiled shrimp, which doesn't give them a good texture, although they are quite large and very fresh tasting. One small suggestion would be to add a dessert that is not ice cream based. Some diners are vegan or lactose intolerant, and it would be nice to end the meal with a sweet treat that does not focus on ice cream (but thanks for offering a gluten free brownie option). It's wonderful to have this sweet place only minutes away from home, but it's also worth a trip. If you plan to indulge in a cocktail, they have an expansive beer menu, and the Cosmopolitan was one of the most generously poured and tasty one that I have ever had. The service is always professional, prompt and attentive. All in all, it's a great place for a fun dinner with your significant other or to meet with friends, or bring your kids--and it won't break the bank.
