Roessler's is very much in demand during season, so we deliberately waited until the crowd thinned out to visit. We had an excellent meal tonight. Mark was our waiter, and he was extremely professional and attentive. I loved the halibut, and my husband thoroughly enjoyed the Steak Diane. Dessert was scrumptious! We'll return in the fall. BTW, the grounds are... More

My wife and I were here now that prime tourist season is over. Less crowded but still popular, good idea to have a reservation. Our waiter identified himself as being new, but he really know the menu and was quite courteous and prompt, along with proper wine service of opening and tasting. Food is outstanding as usual, in a classical,... More

We have been going to Roessler's Restaurant for over 25 years. We were very disappointed last Friday night with the food. My husband had Wiener Schnitzel, it was all breading with a tiny slice of veal in the center. I had the smallest Filet Mignon it wasn't over 4 ounces. our waiter was very rude to all of us.

Roessler's is one of the finest restaurants, period. Their menu and wine list is superb. Chef Klaus prepares a Colorado rack of lamb that is simply the best. Their wine list is excellent and provides perfect accompaniments to the excellent menu selections. The meals are served will all sides included and the overall presentations are excellent. This is a "must... More

We had dinner in the Bistro last week had a very nice dinning experience. The Bistro gives you the choice of all the menu choices and had quality food with excellent service. The smoked salmon app was very good and followed by the Chicken Marsala and the Duck entrée were solid choices. Even though the Duck was served medium well... More

We have been to this restaurant twice since arriving in Venice, Florida, to celebrate birthdays. Although the prices are at the higher end, the food is well worth it and the service is great. It used to be the Flight Deck at the Venice Airport years ago and although they changed venues, it continues to be a first class establishment... More

This is a very staid restaurant that has very good food. Some items I find a bit pricey but they do serve a good meal. They have been in business a few years and their food and service have not changed in quality.

Our four diners share mixed feelings about this dinner out--good food, BUT.... What should have been a perfect 5-star evening was fraught with issues. First, let me say that the food was not disappointing in that all four diners said, for the most part, their meal was delicious with nice presentation. (Hawaiian Sea Bass, Steak Diane, Weiner Schnitzel, Veal Sweetbreads)... More
