With the Citrus Restaurant, Vbar, and Cielo, the dining experience is rich at Hotel Valencia. Diverse selections, fine cuisine, superb beverages, and a perfect setting to go with everything, guests will always have a place to dine that suits their tastes.
The Citrus Restaurant presents California cuisine like no other, thanks to its global influence. The restaurant uses mainly the best locally available produce, meat, and seafood in compliance with the Monterey Seafood Watch program. Executive Chef Ocean Orssten presents a flavourful mix of dishes with unique ingredients from around the world. This open-air restaurant is filled with sheer curtains, warm walls, Venetian plants, and terracotta ceilings to make up an engaging European style courtyard – truly a unique way to dine in style.
Intimate and modern, the Vbar is a great place for guests who are into ultra-modern lounges to chill. With flat TV panels, a top-notch sound system, and even vintage Spanish comic strips on the red acrylic bar it will entertain the senses on all levels. There’s also an expansive balcony which has a spectacular view of Santana Row. It’s one of the top “see and be seen” venues in San Jose, California.
Cielo is a rooftop bar and a great place for those looking to experience a more relaxing bar scene. It’s on the Cielo Rooftop where the backdrop is no less breathtaking than the Santa Cruz Mountains. Here, guests can grab their beverage of choice while enjoying the sunset as seen only from a rooftop. The place has also been known to be a venue for all kinds of events. The bar also offers smoking and non-smoking areas.
Finally, the Terrace is a more intimate alternative than the other dining destinations of Hotel Valencia. It’s a great place where people can escape Santana Row’s daily hustle and bustle. Here, they can enjoy their wine, whiskey, or other beverages of choice while having some delicious munchies on small plates which can be shared with a few friends. The rich, neo classic furnishings, blooming bougainvillea garden, and water fountain make the Terrace true to the al fresco dining experience it offers.
