Our waiter was a ninja! Wait...he rides a Ninja 🏍️. This story started out so much better than it ended. Still this place is a neighborhood gem.
Food was trash. Service was great. It was way too expensive for no reason. Wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone.
Hi Julia, Thanks for the kind note about the service and so sorry you didn't enjoy your meal! Was there something in particular you didn't enjoy? - Chez Tex
Great service and food! Sam the server is a total gem!
Cute atmosphere. Food is tasty but overpriced for what you get. Scallops and sausage meals were delicious. The cheese plates looked really good but we didn’t try that one. Don’t bother with the crème brûlée they make it burnt and too hard on the shell part.
Perfect portion size certain dishes great for sharing and making it a tapas sort of meal. small, quaint restaurant with local charm and knowledgeable staff.
Thank you for the kind words!
Despite the fact the outdoor dining is on the sidewalk of Main Street, so there's lots of street traffic and people walking their dogs past tables, a pleasant atmosphere. An interesting, plant forward menu, especially in the starters, although there is definitely meat items as well.
To start three of us share 3 starters: zucchini fritters, charred cabbage, and a Mediterranean chickpea salad. All three are excellent. My crispy chicken sandwich with fries was excellent as well but is $20.
Even though that feels pricey we've noticed that prices have overall jumped since restaurants have reopened after the pandemic. The prices here are completely in line with other comparable local restaurants.
Alcohol is limited to beer and wine and prosecco cocktails.
We were ignored most of the meal, our food took forever, the descriptions were misleading (chicken paillared is breaded, im gluten free). Had to send that back and ordered the steak salad where I said Im gluten free and could not have the deep fried onions. Got the dish when everyone was done eating and it came with the onions on it…ate the steak on top just because I was starving and left the salad. Then they charged us for everything and didn’t compensate for any of the mistakes. They even took our CC’s and didn’t show us the full bill. Only showed it to us split in two. We sat down at 7:15 and left at 10:15 to show you how slow it was.
Hi Olivia - thank you for your response. We have taken note of your comments regarding menu descriptions and apologize for any confusion. I can confirm however that you were never charged for this as it was taken off your bill at the time. Sorry again for any confusion.
We had fun at chez tex. Appetizers and wine selection were outstanding. Portions are a little small so i would recommend adding some filling beside salads. Ingredients were also excellent and so was service. Location is great and parking was not a problem. Tables are on the street but there was no pedestrian traffic. It can be cold outside but they have good heathers.
Thank you for the kind words Massimo!! We hope to see you again soon.
The “Where my PJ’s at?” Wine is phenomenal.
Ha - we love it too!
Love this spot - great food, wine, and intimate vibe with street view
Hi Caroline - thank you so much for the kind words!
The server was not familiar at all with the wine selections, although the place is listed as a wine bar/restaurant. He literally showed us online reviews when we asked about different wines. The food was yummy, and the service was prompt and friendly otherwise
Hi Michele - I'm glad you enjoyed the food! And so sorry for the wine list confusion. We always have a wine expert on call for every shift - I do apologize your server didn't call them over to assist and help you find a suitable organic selection for your meal. Hope to see you again soon.
It is a wine and beer bar with food. Incredibly pleasant and courteous staff. Food was ok but not in any way outstanding.
The food was good and the staff very nice. They did leave us unattended for longer than necessary as the evening got late (9:30ish) and they were closing up. The tables were outside on the sidewalk with no barrier so a bit difficult...not blaming the restaurant. they are doing their best to handle Covid protocols.
The best!!!!!! Awesome
Food is absolutely delicious and so many vegan options too which was cool to see. The staff was so attentive and helpful. Great spot :)
Food was good; wine service was poor. Was served the wrong white wine and it was not chilled. Our waiter was very green and didn't know the wine list. I realize that the pandemic has made it hard for restaurants to staff properly and would give this one another chance.
Excellent, quick & friendly service. Food was flavorful, creative & delicious. We ate outside and enjoyed the summer evening atmosphere. We didn't need to use the heat lamp, but they were available if we were chilly. Fully recommend!
Exceptional service. Awesome menu. Neighborhood favorite.
Great local spot with great wine and delicious food. The spicy chicken sandwich is a must!
Service was efficient, and servers were kind and gave good recommendations. Food was great!! We sat outside with a good heater, but the inside had a nice aesthetic.
Thank you so much for the kind words!
Went on Father’s Day. Unfortunately, we made our reservation between lunch and dinner so we could only try the happy hour menu. Food was all good, but we were quite disappointed that Open Table didn’t point out that we would be limited to a reduced menu.
The place is shabby and needs a lot of investment. The food is great though
Glad you enjoyed the food! Thanks for the kind words and hope to see you again soon.
Need to try harder - was a poor effort all around.
An aesthetic open setting with a fantastic, creative, and well-executed menu.
Very empty. Menu kind of average. Not a great wine list.
Service was terrible. Our server had no idea about anything on the menu or the wines. I ordered the “butcher sausage“ and what was delivered was butterscotch pudding. No sincere apology – just a chuckle and a “she must have thought you said butterscotch pudding.” I didn’t think it was that funny since my party got their food earlier and were already done. Check delivered with no credit or anything and just a “sorry about that” as it they hadn’t screwed up my entire dinner - but, perhaps just forgot to bring dressing on the side or something. Annoying at best. Food and atmosphere good. Just make sure you make the server repeat back your order lest she thinks you want pudding for an entree. Clearly, she didn’t know the menu.
We're glad you enjoyed the food and atmosphere but of course sorry you found your server subpar. For the record we did check and you weren't charged for either pudding nor sausage.
The food was okay, the service was wonderful.
The staff were so personable and helpful! Made great recs.
Vegetable tian was delicious, as was skirt steak salad. Zucchini fritters accompanied by spiced creme fraiche was a novelty. This place desperately needs to serve coffee.
I feel bad because they try at Chez Tex but its not there. The food is so so, The benches are uncomfortable and the staff is kind but knows nothing about neither the food or wine.
And the prices are high.
The Cheese and meat plate was really good.
Food was very good. My veggie burger
Yummy and nice staff
We loved all of the food! We even got a second order of the scallops. The wines were great! LOVED the ambience & the service! Looking forward to returning!
Thank you for the kind words Tom and we hope to see you very soon!
I am so happy that Chez Tex has survived and seems to be thriving despite the pandemic. I love this place, the small and shareable plates, the affable staff, the cute couple who owns it. They have a good outdoor seating set up, on a not-crazy stretch of Main St. Good heaters are available. It's a nice spot for some snacks and wine with a friend or friends. The menu is small but there's plenty of options. I will return for sure.
Venice Locals know whats up ;)
We went with friends who are vegan, plenty of options on the menu. Food was flavorful and great size portions for sharing.
Great to hear! Thanks for the kind words Wendy.
The price was pretty inflated for the amount of food we received, also my chicken might’ve been a bit over cooked considering it was chewy.
Great service. Extremely friendly staff. Good food!
Thank you! Hope to see you soon.
I did not think food was worth the prices or the reviews. We ordered 4 dishes and neither was either good or worth the money.
Sorry you felt that way Nora. What could we have done better for you?
FOOD IS ACTUALLY REALLY REALLY GOOD. WENT IN NOT EXPECTING ANYTHING BUT ITS MY SECOND TIME AND FOOD WAS STILL EXCEPTIONAL. LOVE THE ZUCCHINI FRITTERS, AND THE BUTCHER'S SAUSAGE. STAFF NEEDS A LITTLE MORE KNOWLEDGE ON FOOD THOUGH.
Thank you so much for the kind words Charina!!!
Had family visiting from out of town and wanted to go somewhere in Venice. Stumbled upon Chez Tex and so glad we did. Everyone really enjoyed their meals and we especially all loved the charcuterie plate as an appetizer. Definitely recommend and will be going back!
Thank you for the kind words!! Hope to see you soon
