I didn’t get a table in the back patio as requested for my 40th birthday but we had a lovely evening on the less and the server was very kind. The table was just set for five not six but that was easily sorted and the food was delicious as always. It was nice to sit inside by the bar for a cocktail before dinner as well

Confirming the reservation was a challenge, i tried changing the time and it led to issues...i went in person, was reassured that it was changed and when we arrived it had not been changed. The manager in charge did what he could do to make it work for us, after we waited around for a while....

When you make a reservation you expect you’ll be seated at the time of the reservation or within a few minutes. You do not expect to be directed to a 20+ person deep line to wait upwards of 30 minutes for your table. Unfortunately my last experience at Rose was unfortunate due to the above situation. They should consider changing their system to “walk in only” if they can’t handle reservations.

I went to the Rose for dinner and the food was delicious! We were seated in their extended outdoor dining area (I wish we were seated more in the front / patio) but it was still nice. The wait staff was very friendly! All of their dishes are meant to be shared. A few of my favorite dishes we ordered: Korean BBQ Bone Marrow, Rigatoni, and Arugula Salad. The s'mores dessert is a MUST!

They have a time limit and reminded us about it about 4 times during our meal. They rushed us out when there were clearly tons of tables open. Bussers were stalking our table. We couldn’t get through a conversation or even put the glass down after a final sip without them pouncing on us and interrupting us asking if we are ok. I love appropriate attentiveness but this was just obnoxious.

We ended up going down the street to
Chulita for a second drink which we would have just as easily of had at Rose if they didn’t push us out.

Dumb. Pretentious. Overpriced.

We got sat at table all the way in the corner under the tree. My friend found a little bug in her drink probably from sitting under the tree. It was a cold day heat lamp didn’t do much. I had the kale salad it was very mediocre. Waiter said drinks were balanced there were in fact extremely strong. Nice place nothing great probably would not go back.

Food is amazing, This was our third time and it’s always great. But it’s very expensive. They asked twice if it was a special occasion. It was - a double birthday and a big milestone birthday. Also told the waiter. But no one said anything or did anything or comped anything. Okay, so why ask? Courses came too fast, three at a time.

The Rose is super cute and had a large selection of food. Unfortunately we were right under the speakers and it was so loud! We could barely hear each other talking the whole ttime. We also ordered the breakfast sandwich and were SO disappointed with it! It was $14 and looked like it was made by a 4 year old... there was kraft singles cheese, a hamburger bun which was squished down (looked like unwrapping a fast food burger), and a sunnyside up egg. SUPER disappointing, especially for the price. We got some yummy stuff like the breakfast burrito and the biscuits, but it was kind of hard to get over the main thing I ordered being so small and kind of gross looking.

My party loved everything about The Rose Venice from the friendliness of the staff, their attention to our needs, the breadth and creativity of the menu and the quality of food. We were seated in a very spacious and comfortable outdoors dining area and the restaurant was hopping busy. Highly recommend The Rose Venice, enjoy!

Everything about this place was perfect. Amazing COVID protocols, refreshing cocktails, delicious food, friendly service. One downside was, they pushed us out of our 90 minute reservation saying we had finished our 2 hour time limit, when we still had 7 minutes left on our reservation. We did not appreciate the time crunch on our anniversary.

The outside dining experience was great- tables spaced far apart and everything seemed clean.
Service was also very good and prompt.
While the food and drinks were tasty, it is overpriced and portions are on the smaller side.
$14 for a breakfast sandwich(no side) and $28 for a crab roll with chips(fries are extra) is a bit much.

There is a long line to wait in just to check in with the host to say you have a reservation. Then another 20 mins of waiting. When we were finally sat it was 15 minutes before a waiter approached our table. We ordered food and drinks then since we knew it would be a while before he came back. 20 mins later, one of our drinks arrived. 5 minutes after the first drink came out, the waiter came to say they ran out of the other drink. When ordering a second round the same thing happened. Poor service and communication.

The Rose has always been one of my favorite spots in Venice. I went recently just to try the uni latkes and oh my gosh, what a brilliant and delicious creation. Putting a spin on traditional latkes using creme fraiche instead of sour cream and topping them with delicious uni... just perfect!

The food and ambiance were wonderful. The service was questionable. There was one server managing over 6 tables (some large) and although he was nice and knowledgeable, our service suffered. Our coffee (basic drip) arrived after our food. The food, as I mentioned, was good; however, the coffee was lukewarm at best. We were in our seats for over 30 minutes before even getting the first cup. We asked for another warmer cup after drinking about half of the first, and those took more than 10 minutes to arrive. I ordered a glass of wine to enjoy after meal, when that didn’t arrive after 15 minutes, I notified the server. He was apologetic and served the glass a few minutes later. After personally being in service industry for 15 years throughout school, I understand how many things can go wrong, and how important adequate staffing and team awareness are. There were many team members who could have been more affective and helpful. I tipped the server 30% because he was working with what he had and very hospitable. I hope this was a one off occurrence as I heard amazing things about this restaurant. Will likely give another shot.
