The Bistrot de Venise was first opened in 1993. It is a place where people can meet up and savour the Cuisine & Wine as they enjoy figurative arts, poetry, cultural gatherings and a host of other activities dedicated to Venice. …in 1999, the Bistrot de Venise took its concept of blending culture, food and wine from the Veneto region a step further when it began to carry out research into Rare Wines and Historical Venetian Cuisine. …We are still steadfastly continuing along this path today…

        Food was excellent and all the wait staff were lovely. But the service was very slow - over 3 and a half hours for the full meal which sapped the energy out of it and spoilt it a bit.

        One of our favorite restaurants of any in the world. The atmosphere, service, food quality, imaginative menu, and thoughtfully prepared seasonal variety are second to none. Such a delight to have Sergio greet us at the door every night, and the stellar, exceptionally knowledgeable and personable staff makes us feel like home each and every time. You’ll appreciate the small touches and attention to detail to each course. Something for everyone’s palate on the menu, Venice can be a seafood lover’s paradise but a steak person’s compromise, but the filet is succulent and can be cut with a butter knife. A must in Venice!

        Food was well prepared and aesthetically pleasing. Our service to slow to start, but I think it stemmed from a miscommunication rather than slow waitstaff. Waitstaff was accommodating and pleasant to interact with. Overall, we had a great time and would readily recommend this restaurant.

        This is an excellent restaurant. Unfortunately we had a loud, pushy waiter who turned frosty and shut us out after we made it politely clear that we did not want many offered extras. It negatively impacted the tone of an otherwise superb meal. The oysters were fresh and salty, the vegetable soup was delicious and the fried zucchini flowers are the best we have ever eaten. The entrees were outstanding and we particularly recommend the steak. Desserts are great and there is an excellent, thoughtful wine list.

        As requested, we were seated outside in a quiet area . The service, food, and wine were excellent. Loved the fried Zucchini flowers! And the interesting menu. Their house olive oil is amazing. Had to take some home. Can’t thank our waiter, sommelier, and maitre d’ enough for their attention and an overall wonderful experience. Highly recommend Bistrot de Venise. We can’t wait to return to Venice and go back.

        My wife and I celebrated our 33rd anniversary at this fine restaurant as we were on a tour of Italy at the time and Venice is on her bucket list. We dined outside and the evening was perfect. Our waiter was attentive and the food ranged from good to very good, but it was mostly the atmosphere that was enchanting. Highly recommended for a romantic dinner.

        Special meal for special anniversary. I booked thru Open Table but my hotel concierge called and asked for a romantic table. Service was attentive and friendly. Ambiance was romantic - corner table in a small room with tasteful paintings of food complementing the wall sconces and elegant décor, and quiet classical music in the background. The menu is inventive, including some centuries old recipes. We had the 4 course tasting menu which turned out to be 6 courses since it included and amuse-bouche to start and truffle chocs with coffee. We both opted for scallops to start - delicious. A pasta dish of homemade ravioli was followed by duck breast. For dessert we separated. I had a deconstructed tiramisu which was very good, but I wish I'd had the orange crème brulee my wife chose =, as it was to die for. All the food was was delicious, perfectly cooked and served with a flair, including a detailed description of everything on the plate. Perfectly paced, too. The cost was 74 euro each not including drinks, We don't drink alcohol (although the wine list included bottles in all price ranges) and our total cost, including drinks and service, was just less than 200euro. Definitely worth it for a splurge meal. They even included a rose for my wife!

        We enjoyed a nice meal in lovely surroundings but this was dramatically overshadowed by the fact that after we had paid a few hundred euros for the meal along with a lovely bottle of red we had the majority of our water left so we thought we would take it with us as our hotel was only around the corner... harmless you would think... but no, the waiter held my arm as I walked out and said "have you paid for that bottle" I of course said yes I had, but then he proceeded to tell me that I would need to pay an additional 40 euros if I wanted to take the bottle with me... bizarre, embarrassing and rude...
