Our group four had a rather mediocre Friday night dinner to include fish dishes and the nightly special of steak and lobster. We all had the vegetable medley that had too much soy sauce. We stated with pretty good salads. My steak was good site but tasteless although the lobster tail was ok. The entire staff could make a nicer... More

Good dinner, very good value, caring owner & servers. 3.5 stars... We visited in September, a Friday evening. We like dining in Venice, actually prefer getting off Venice Ave. Burgundy Square Cafe is 1 block over on Miami Ave. Apparently they have an ongoing nightly special. I was surprised to see that on Friday the special is a NY strip... More

The food here is nothing special. I had fried fish that was very mediocre. We had a disappointing meal here a year ago and only returned because a friend invited us. There are too many other better choices in the area, so I think this will be my last visit.

It is very off season here in Venice now and the food reflects. Staff was attentive and everything looked clear but the food, ugh. I had a burger and fries. Not sure how the burger was cooked but it wasn't fried or grilled. The fries were microwaved left overs. Not worth trying out!

Visited here today for a late lunch. One of their specials was a hamburger and fries for $5 which my husband decided to order. Wasn't expecting too much for that price, but it was awesome. Burger was huge and was made fresh to order. I ordered one of the other specials...tuna steak blt for$9.95. It came with 1 side, and... More

Just out of principle I am writing this. Server Bridget said blame the owner, but I blame them both! Have always given excellent reviews for Burgundy Square Cafe, but this needs to be said. My wife & I stopped for lunch on Tuesday 8/25/16. Noticed the special was hamburger for 5.00. My wife figured if I was going to get... More

Indoor and outdoor seating. Pleasant atmosphere and plenty of parking for a Sunday morning when most of the downtown area is closed. Arrived shortly after opening on a Sunday and the staff was very friendly. Though they seemed short staffed for just opening and they were running around, mixed up our order and slow to refill the coffee. Other than... More

As a native to the area, I'm almost ashamed that I haven't tried this little hometown place until now!! Great place with pleasant service. We had the blackened salmon and chicken Marsala dinners. Big portions and plenty of food!! Nice fresh salad comes with meal and tried the unique horseradish crab house dressing...yummo!! Can't wait to try other things from... More

Delicious breakfast/ brunch food. A variety of different omelets! Kind and fast service. Located both other little shops. Looking at the dinner menu of fish tacos, lobster, and steak I want to return later in the day!
