A real treat! We arrived in Cleveland late afternoon and were surprised by several options for dining around our hotel. Il Venetian looked a little fancy but we decided to check it out and although decor is upscale it’s in an approachable way, gorgeous glass...chandeliers, blue velvet, long and busy bar … cocktails were lovely ( husband ordered me a 90210 😀)…we had pasta for our mains, my parpadelle with short ribs was amazing. Cheese cake for dessert was divine. Service was impeccable …Gina was our server. Professional, friendly, well timed.More

Our best meal experience while visiting Cleveland for an industry conference. From the moment we entered, warmly greeted by both their friendly hostess and Mike, their wine & beverage specialist. What a comfortable and refined atmosphere. High-end service, with the food and beverages to match,...with reasonable prices for the superior quality. Pasta made by hand on-site, bread hot fresh baked, salads and main courses were perfect. Every dish was a beautiful presentation. Service from beginning to end was exceptional. We are guaranteed to return next time in town!More

First off, the personnel in the front of the house were all super nice, friendly, and chatty early on a mid-week afternoon. Both dishes were very good, especially the gnocchi. Great wine selection, but we didn't indulge since it was lunchtime. Don't bother stealing the...Dom Perignon bottles out of the ice bucket display. There isn't any wine in them, but the waitress says they keep disappearing.More

Arrived for lunch solo. Beautiful restaurant inside the Marriott. I ordered the meatball and polenta appetizer. Delicious and filling. I could not finish the polenta. I ordered chicken parmigiana. This was the largest portion that I have ever seen and sooooo tasty. I could only...take a few bites and boxed it for later. My server Carina was great and made helpful suggestions. I highly recommend this Italian experience.More

This restaurant is attached to the Marriott but it is not a “hotel” kind of place. We had beet salad, veal stuffed angliotti, and a crusted rare tuna and everything was fabulous. There’s lots of good menu selections and a nice wine list. Our server...was terrific and all the staff was friendly and helpful. We’ll be back.More

The entire staff was very knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. Treated us as though we were the only people dining there, which wasn't the case, of course. The food was excellent and the entire dining experience was so relaxing and comfortable. Prices were comparable to other...fine dining establishments. Much more than I expected for a hotel restaurant. We will definitely return in the future.More

I dined here tonight and was pleased with the experience. The waitress was helpful and guided me to the eggplant meal and a Caesar salad. The salad had white anchovies-a plus. I had a nice beer and ended with a glass of porto. The eggplant...is in the top list but is a full meal. The pomodoro sauce is very nice. I may be back tomorrow night.More

Very high scale restaurant including the staff. Extremely friendly especially our waitress Lynne. The salmon and eggplant rollitini were both excellent. The ravioli tartufato was out of this world amazing. If you are in Cleveland, I definitely recommend this place. The staff was very accommodating.

My business partner and I stopped in for a quick luncheon. We had been staying at the Marriott all week and had been searching for a great restaurant, during that time. We wished that we had gone to the Il Venetian for all of meals....The staff was wonderful. The food was great. The atmosphere was delightful. This will be my go-to restaurant while in Cleveland, in the future.More

This is an exceptional dining establishment! Don't be fooled because it is in the Marriott Hotel. It is well run and the staff are knowledgeable, very friendly and professional. Even the bartenders go the extra distance to make sure the drinks are perfect. Last but...not least, the food is unbelievably exceptional Italian cuisine! 10 stars!!More

We loved this place. Stayed at the hotel for a get-out-of-town date night. The selection of Il Venetian was a perfect choice for dinner. Everything from the apps to the dessert was perfect. The wine expert helped us pick out something that paired with our...dinner so I didn't have to just guess on the wine list. I will probably have dreams about that veal Parm until I get to this place again.More

Went on a dinner with my work team. The food was great (very heavy though) but lots of the orders went wrong and it was quite slow. Staff very friendly but just not good communication between them all.

I took my mum to a pre-Christmas treat at Il Venetian on Dec 23 (a Monday), and we had a wonderful dinner, made even better by impeccable warm efficient (and humorous) service from Rhonda. Needless to say, Il Venetian's dishes remain consistently outstanding. This time,...we had the riccotta with pink peppercorns (home made and addictive), egg plant rollatini and octopus - yum. By the time, we were asked about main courses, we decided to go straight for dessert. IV was so kind as to bring complimentary desserts and for the first time, I tried their cheese cake - light and ethereal - well, it won't be our last.More
