“Trying to Duplicate”
Reviewed April 9, 2011

We're from Minnesota and while visiting Venice we are always in favor of our friends taking us to the Crow's Nest to dine. We've always eaten downstairs in the pub because we like the casual but classy atmosphere. The Seafood bisque is unbeliveable. So good that we have only been back up north for 1 week and are already craving some. We tried our luck looking up the recipe and found it. Heading off to the store now to try and buy the ingredients. We're keeping our fingers crossed. Also the Tavern steak is great. We think we have the seasoning they use down, now just so we can grill it to perfection as they do.

Reviewed April 4, 2011

I am a regular customer to the Crow's Nest Restaurant and anyone who is a local or who is a visitor will tell you it is by far the best place to enjoy a meal in Venice.

“A top choice and a Venice classic - Excellent food, fresh fish, views, service, etc.”
Reviewed March 25, 2011

We have vacationed here for years, and Crow's Nest has some of the most excellent fish and steak dishes I have had. The fresh Red Grouper was amazing.
The views of the water are fantastic and the service is first class.
Everytime we vacation here, we eat here at least once and sometimes several times in a week.

“Seafood and atmosphere”
Reviewed February 28, 2011

Great food upstairs but more expensive. Downstairs bar is less expensive with limited menu. The view upstairs and menu is worth the price. The cheese soup "dutchess" is excellent. Salads are fresh and specials great. Moderately priced and food is always good. Have been here a dozen times and never a bad experience. Recommend the nester salad, dutchess soup, and various seafood items.

“No Class”
Reviewed February 15, 2011

Was there Feb 14, sitting in the Tarvern. A couple sitting next to us had thier food taken away to quickly. He wanted to take home the leftover. The waiter was looking in the GARBAGE for his leftovers and found a baggy with his food in it. He took it over to the man's table and said "is this what you want?". Couldn't believe it. The whole area was littered with napkins on the floor. After we left around 7pm, there were hardly anyone in the tarvern. This was Valentines Night. Will never go back. Only 2 waiters for the placew and the service SUCKED. Been going there for 8 years. No more. Plenty of other places with views.
