A Harry's Bar do-over for us, still disappointed

We stopped in for a drink during our stay in Venice last week, just for sentimental reasons. After an extremely bad Harry's Bar experience 14-years ago, we wanted a do-over. This time we kept is safe with just drinks, no food. The bar is cute but nothing spectacular. We knew the drinks were expensive ( $25 old fashioned) and we... More

Living on past memories! Bellini and bloody Mary €40 something outrageous! Not even that good a drink. Enough said.

If you want glamour, this is the place to visit. Super chic, understated luxury and fab attention to detail. Have dinner and the meringue cake it's fluffy and fabulous (ignore the Bellini it's overrated).

Having read some of the other reviews, I truly wonder if I was in the same place. From the moment you are warmly welcomed at the door, by immaculately turned out staff you realise that just calling this lunch will not do it justice. Starting with a Bellini (some might think it a little expensive, but you are paying for... More

What a shame. Such hype but arrogance and rudeness never goes well. Been in many lovely and expensive places but history only goes so far when the experience is so poor. Just unfriendly and snobby. Enough said, may have been good once.

We stopped in and we're overwhelmed by the price and then completely underwhelmed by the food. Staff is nice but this place is a total tourist trap. We came from Bologna and this is a total racket for what they are charging! There is nothing sanctimonious about this place. Crumbs in the seats and yes, the roll out a new... More

We visited on a Sunday evening and were planning trying the famous bellinis (we weren't having a meal) I was disappointed. The place was lacking in warmth, welcome and service. I wonder if it was the time we went (about 8.30pm) and the fact we weren't eating. Maybe if we'd been having a meal or visited in the afternoon our... More

First impressions weren't what we expected.... was more spartan furniture and design than we would have guessed. The atmosphere and staff were second to none though and we had a BRILLIANT time! One of the waiters took the time to tell us some history of the bar and lend us a book regarding the same. Other clientele were also great,... More

I have sat in more welcoming train waiting rooms. Awful bar staff in ill fitting suits, they definitely need some training in customer service. We had two drinks costing over 50 euros! It isn't about the money if if the experience lived up to the hype you wouldn't mind paying. All I can say is AVOID AVOID AVOID. I will... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
