We found a couple of staffs who really wanted to give diners best experience the only good part about this overpriced place. Food and drinks are astronomical.

By far our biggest disappointment in Venice. The hotel is wonderfully located & the interior looks absolutely stunning. But the terrace restaurant is a massive let-down. Four of us arrived (upon recommendation from our own hotel nearby) to have a glass of wine & consider...lunch. Only two other customers were on the terrace, leaving about 30 tables vacant. "Have you made a reservation?" we were asked. "No. Is it really necessary?" “Your hotel should have told you it is essential.” While studying the menu (downloaded onto our phones), we were struck by the scores of wasps around. There is clearly a wasp nest nearby, but rather than addressing the problem, the restaurant does nothing other than put jars of sweetened water along the top of the terrace wall. “No-one else has a problem” came the dismissive response from the waiter with a shrug of the shoulders when we pointed out the wasps. Having spent 15 minutes looking at the extortionate prices on the menu (€22 for a glass of Prosecco. €18 for a glass of the least expensive white wine) while being totally ignored by the 4 staff on duty, we took our leave. The views are great & the hotel facilities appear fantastic, but with rip-off prices & unprofessional staff there is no way this can be recommended.More

The only nice thing about this place is the view and the service. The restaurant is MASSIVELY and ridiculouisly overpriced (20 euros for a fruit juice). 30 euros for cover charge... and the quality of the food is really not good. The menu contains strange...combinations just isn’t very tasty. It’s a shame because the location is very nice.More

We enjoyed a great evening in Danieli's Restaurant Terrazza Perfect cooking in combination with the service made this dinner a perfect evening. It is not necessary to describe every part of the meal that was simply perfect. The clear recommendation is to follow the waiter's...recommendation. And if you are not a vegetarian, order the meat. By the way, if you like cheese, ask for a variation, it is simply delicious.More

We had dinner here and the view was just breath taking. I would recommend to book your table at 7pm, that way you have the most chance of sitting "on the first row". We had a 5 course meal and it was really good! It's...very expensive so keep that in mind: you don't pay just for the food, but for the whole experience.More

It is always unpleasant to write a bad review, but you sometimes have to do it to help other fellow travelers and, hopefully, the restaurant staff if they have any wish to improve. When you select such high end place, you have a certain level...of expectation. At minimum, it should be a pleasant experience. Tonite was not. We left grumpy and disappointed. Yes, sure, the view is amazing, but that does not justify everything. Particularly not the quality and taste of the food. Honestly, I believe I can cook risotto and lamb chops better. The only dish I would save is the grilled octopus, but that you can get anywhere. The desert was soaky. The fish carpaccio tasteless. Then, there was the service. I thought you could only find such blasé waiters in Paris, they did not even try to make you feel comfortable. The only touch of pleasure was the sommelier. At least he was awake and he had some passion in describing his wine selection, and, in overall, they were good. As for the bill, 430 euros for 2. You can get some incredible food for that amount. In short: a tourist trap. To be avoided.More
