Venice is a very good downtown restaurant worthy of consideration. The wait service is very attentive, including the hostess who ran down a cab on the street after our meal. The food is very good with a large number of Italian selections available. There is a large and interesting wine list. The setting is nicely upscale.

Three of us ate here based on a recommendation from our concierge. We were sorely disappointed. I ordered the special, a pasta with a truffle sauce and filet mignon. It was so bad after three bites I could not eat it and set it aside. The meat tasted microwaved. I did not detect any truffle flavor or bits. The sauce... More

Great atmosphere in a stunning decor. Excellent food and wine, but what made this evening so special was our waitress, Jemala! Ask for one of her tables and you won't be disappointed. She was incredibly knowledgeable about the food, wine and the restaurant in general. The BEST wait person in a long time!

The food, wine selection, ambience and service is outstanding. The only thing better is the happy hour food menu. The menu choices are taken right off the dinner menu in smaller portions.

I was with a group of 20 so we got a private table. Our servers were extremely attentive and fun. Most of the dinners were $20 give or take. Plenty of food, great quality and decent wine list. Would definitely go back.

This is absolutely the worst dining experience I have had...personal or business. Absolutely no friendliness and the food did not have any taste. I will never eat there again!

The food was excellent but the service was not at the same level, otherwise I would have given 5 stars. We had a reservation for a party of 10 and they did not greet us or inquire about a reservation until we approached an employee. The restaurant had nice ambiance and was comfortable. All of our food was very good.... More

I brought a business group of twelve here. The waiters couldn't give us the time of day from the moment we entered the restaurant. Service was slow and often discourteous. Friction peaked when one diner got the wrong dish she never ordered. Eggplant Parmigiana was good, but the majority of the food was well below average

We were at the Venice Ristorante for a dinner party of 30 people. Our party room was separated from the rest of the restaurant with a curtain, making it difficult to have privacy due to the noise filtering in from the other diners. There is a beautiful wine cellar, which alone is worth looking at. The food was tasty, and... More
