“A little taste of Venizia right in Port A!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

The food in this restaurant is very tasty! The restaurant itself is spotless and the waitstaff courteous and accommodating. The menu selections are all slanted to Texas Coastal seafood and the fusion works well. I would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the area!

“Excellent food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

We arrived smack in the middle of rush hour with people coming in and needed a to-go order. They accomodated us without a problem and with fantastic food. We had a great chat with people at the bar. Shrimp were wonderful as was everything else!

“Delicious Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Wonderful menu especially for a beach area. We all enjoyed excellently prepared veal dishes. We had a reservation which can be a must at various times. This is a good couples atmosphere. Wish they had a full bar instead if only wine and beer.

“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

We arrived at the Venetian Hot Plate at 7:30pm on a Friday night without a reservation. The wait for a dining room table was an hour - should have made reservations! But we were able to be seated in the small bar area right away. The food was excellent! I wouldn't bring children (or even teens) here because (1) it is a bit pricey and (2) the food is probably too "fancy" for them and they wouldn't appreciate it. Reservations are highly recommended.
