A two day celebration of all things oceanic.

Seafood will abound at Valentien on Thursday, September 15th and Friday, September 16th. Oysters, Clams, Mussels, and More!

The highlight of the night? Our chef will be stationed behind our two-nights-only seafood raw bar, ready to freshly shuck as many oysters as you’d like. You can order directly with the chef, or hand your server an oyster order sheet, and the server will bring back the oysters right to your table.

Not a raw bar type of person? Don’t worry, we will have a menu full of all types of seafood.
