Cute place, old school high ceilings

Ok let's face it if you live in PDX metro getting to Hillsboro takes an hour. But , if you arent in a hurry and want a drive this was a nice place. Old school building very high ceilings. The food was very nice. Nothing wrong with it. Casual dining. A little on the noisie side. not a large menu... read more

What an elegant place and such a surprise to find in Hillsboro. The food is wonderful and the atmosphere is great. I highly recommend planning a visit. Parking can be a nightmare. The space is not large and would not work well for a large group. A table for 4 should not be a problem. We went during the week... More

My wife and I have dined at Venetian a number of times, have tried several different entrees from pizza to steak, and have been very satisfied on each visit. Parking can sometimes be a challenge, but the downtown Hillsboro location is central and the fair-weather open-air street wall makes for a very pleasant dining experience. One of these days we'll...

A little spendy, but always a nice experience. The food quality has always been tops, and we really love the decadent desserts. We have been known to just stop in for dessert, they're that enticing.

Good food at reasonable prices. Nice place. Not a "plastic" fast food restaurant. Located right downtown Hillsboro and has outdoor seating in summer, plus balconies up on the second floor. The theater is in the same building and has live productions.

Food is so-so, price moderate, but the windows are blinding. Wish they could filter the light for a more enjoyable experience.

We had lunch with great service and really good sandwiches. I recommend this place to everyone. They have a really great menu and the roast their own turkey everyday.

We been to the Venetian several times and have found the food to be very good and the staff has always been friendly and helpful. It's not a big restaurant and is very cozy. Neither my wife or I have a favorite dish as they've all been very good. Depending on the time of day you visit will determine how... More

Adam suggested a pizza, this time. He had me at fresh chicken chunks. The pizza might take a little longer due to "fresh chicken chunks cooked to order. Not too much later, our chicken, pesto sauce, artichokes and onions emerged from kitchen. My first bite was like no other pizza. The wonderful chicken and other ingredients did not even outshine...

Recently I had a Happy Hour visit here and the burger I ordered was EXCELLENT. It was a nice thick old style burger and the beer prices were good. I wish they would continue their Happy Hour through the weekend as I am sure this would increase their business. We have been here for lunches and Happy Hours other time... More
