As usual, a wonderful dining experience....

I have eaten here many times. What is great is the consistency of creative and tasteful dishes. We had 3 appetizers and 2 entrees. The goat cheese stuff figs were outstanding. The crab cakes were good and the beet salad was wonderful as it has been in the past. We then had short ribs and orchietta... read more

We had a great dinner. Ashley the waitress was a joy and very helpful. The lemon crusted cod was delicious as was the top sirloin. We had a Chilean merlot Santa Ema which topped the evening. We'll be back!

I'm always so pleased to have the opportunity to comment on yet another fabulous culinary experience at the Back Eddy Bistro. July's wine dinner served to take it up another notch on the quality scale and to also let out another notch on my belt! The wines were unique and the food pairings were creative. And speaking of this month's... More

We visited Back Eddy Bistro for lunch after a trip to the consignment stores on Miami Avenue and had a truly exceptional meal. The talapia sandwich served with sweet potato fries was mouth watering and absolutely delicious. I followed that with their Key Lime Pie which was outstanding. We arrived at about 12:30 where we were the first to be... More

When I first saw the pricey menu with Cod for 23 dollars and told of the evenings special of strip steak for 36 dollars I thought this would be a one time visit. However, my cod was incredibly delicious and well worth the 23 dollars. My wife had a sweet potato taco with pulled pork in it which she said... More

The food was excellent and plentiful. Had to cancel our salads after the appetizers so we could have room for our man course. The pavlova for dessert was excellent. Lovely atmosphere and romantic as well. Smaller rooms for small parties, a lovely garden area and sidewalk eating as well if you have a dog.

Back Eddy Bistro opened in 2008, the same year I started dining there. This establishment is one of my first stops whenever visiting Venice. Owners Eddy and Allyson make me feel like family. But more importantly, Chef Eddy's creations have always been a real treat. He makes the commonplace extraordinary. The latest dish I sampled was unbelievably good...pulled pork, cold... More

Nice selection of beer, lovely selection of wines. Delicious, And Steven gave us sips of wine to try, we quickly found one we loved. Steven was a... More

I love the Back Eddy. Food, service, ambiance, location...all are superb. From the first visit 6-7 years ago until the present, this place has never disappointed me. Owners Chef Ed ( a genius with a rack of lamb) and wife Ally ( creator of unbelievable desserts) treated me like family from the first day I met them. Though I haven't... More

We sat at the bar on Saturday evening and again had an excellent meal. We commented, after our delicious dinner, about the friendly service, outstanding food and the kind owners who come out during the evening to ensure all is well. We love, love, love this restaurant. Venice is luckty to have you !
