This is my first visit to this place and I enjoyed my lunch very much. I Had the veggie burger and my boyfriend had the portobello mushroom sandwich which with both enjoyed. It took a while for our lunch to come and the room we were in was small and very noisy. I think it would have been better it... More

We went on Christmas Eve looking the comfort and coziness of one of the two front rooms with a Christmas tree and fireplace. Unfortunately, they stuck our party of six in a back room with loud music and really bright lighting. It was like being in a cafeteria. WE asked to have the lighting dimmed and music turned down, which... More

Hidden away in Chestnut Hill, one has to go out of the way to find the Valley Green Inn. It's worth the twists and turns of the roads to get there. This beautiful old Inn has been decorated and restored to bring modern comfort while maintaining the historic feeling of Colonial USA. The small room where about 15 tables sit... More

I can't recommend their Sunday brunch highly enough. This restaurant is truly a gem. Once again, we're into the year-end holidays, so check out their Christmas Eve/Day and New Year's Eve/Day brunch offerings. In our case, I booked for the 10:00 AM opening on New Year's Day 2016, which may sound crazy, but turned out to be a great way... More

We were very disappointed in our visit for dinner at Valley Green help was not very friendly menu was very limited food was awfully over priced for the amount of food you get. We got the scallops only four of them priced at $29.00 a platter! Didn't even offer a piece of cake for the Birthday Girl... asked us if... More

Particularly crowded since there was both a wedding outside and the regular diners inside. Since our family had a wedding there, I can't really complain about that! Lots of choices for brunch. We liked the egg dishes, omelettes and chilaquiles. The grandkids had burger and fries. My wife's omelette was made to her specifications which was nice. Service was friendly... More

The location and the restaurant are beautiful. Unfortunately our food wasn't worth the price and was just ok. It took along time and when it came out it was cold. There was a wedding going on so that could be why it took so long. I would like to try it one more time to see if it was just... More

Philadelphia boasts as having the largest city park in the world....Valley Green is right in the middle in a bucolic setting along the Wissahickon. Ducks swimming by, people jogging, families out with kids and dogs and there you sit outside on a lovely day enjoying a lovely lunch. Dinner is great too, in or out depending on the weather.

The Valley Green Inn is a historic restaurant in a beautiful wooded setting. It's set along the Wissahickon creek along wooded trails just down the hill from the Chestnut Hill neighborhood. When you're there you can forget you're in the middle of the city. We had a party of 19. The group menu was limited to four dishes, calamari, a... More

Beautiful setting, very good service and excellent food. There are not a lot of options but the food was well prepared and presented well. I had the grilled swordfish that sat on top of a quinoa salad. It was incredibly delicious. Well seasoned, balance of flavors and contrast in texture. I would highly recommend.
