I’ve been dining here since 2015 and they have never fallen short of earning their 4 star diamond award in every category. The Orlando magazine said it best a few years ago when they said this is the one restaurant that you must eat at in Orlando and the one dish that you must try while there is their Lobster Bisque.

The Lobster bisque was amazing! The cheese plate was massive and more for 2 people to eat. The service started good but as there were a few other tables added it got slow. There were no bus boys to pick up the dishes when were done so we would have to wait for the waiter to come back to pick up but he was busy taking care of others orders, drinks, etc. That was the only reason why the service was 3 stars. I looked up reviews prior to the dinner and saw some customers mentioned a before entree app - like a s cleanser, we didnt get that and in addition online menu showed a trio meat dish but didnt see on the dinner menu. Overall, it was good enough for me to go back and would recommend,

My husband and I celebrated our first anniversary here! Our waiter was very polite and made our dinner very special. We tried their 3-Course Magic Menu, with french onion soup, 10oz ribeye steak, blackened salmon, and a tasty chocolate bar for desert. The food was well balanced and had multiple layers of flavor. Our waiter was prompt but did not make us feel rushed at all, even though I am a slower eater.

Very disappointing experience. This is definitely not a four diamond restaurant. I was encouraged to go because all of the reviews here mentioned the exceptional service, but our service was terrible. We stood in the vestibule at the entrance for probably 5 to 7 minutes without even being acknowledged. We we're greeted very awkwardly by our server who offered no explanation of the menu, features, wines, or information at all. We had four different people at the table fulfilling service, no continuity. Wine glasses were filthy, staff was much more interested in talking by the window than focusing on the guest experience on the floor. Server picked up my knife to serve bread which was kind of odd. You could tell the servers probably didn't have much experience with fine dining. Certainly not four diamond experience. The food was okay. Seemed to be a cheap cut of meat, and the potatoes au gratin that came with steak lacked flavor and richness. Nothing to make me want to come back, especially when you consider that bull and bear is also a four diamond restaurant and soars many heights above the Venetian Chop house.

We purchased 3 course meal for 2 ahead of time however, when he found out that we weren’t going to order any alcoholic drinks he went ghost didn’t even take our preordered meal. After 20-30 minutes another waiter Phillip came took our order stating Mario was too busy. Mario came to follow up once while we were eating. Our stake was very salty. We are very disappointed!

Excellent service. Went for magical dining. Great selection. Shrimp cocktail had huge shrimp, cocktail sauce was incredibly spicy though. Salmon was fantastic and so was the ribeye. Very nice playing. Restaurant and hotel are both clean and very nice. Server was excellent. Chocolate mousse was alright but the chocolate ganache that was with it was amazing.

Third time we've been to the hotel in 3 consecutive years for a conference. Enjoyed it the prior two times but this trip just didn't live up to the two previous trips. We both decided on the three course menu and the 10 oz rib eye. The meat was a bit tough and just not to the standard I'd expect from them. The onion soup was good, veggies were ok and dessert was great so I'm thinking the thinness of the chop just got the best of them. I would try them again but would be cautious about what I ordered.

When I made our reservation the matre'd was very accommodating . When we were seated we were greeted by our server immediately and never pressured into rushing to order . We sat outside for our dining experience , the weather was perfect . Our server Philip was very helpful with a suggestion from the menu or a cocktail . The food was cooked perfect along with the presentation . This definitely a restaurant we will be coming back to .

Four of us dined under the Magical Dining program. The décor was very nice and the service was on the spot. The three 10-ounce ribeye steaks we ordered were relatively thin, as might be expected with that size, but they were also more tough than expected. One of us ordered the salmon. It was a nice looking little filet but unfortunately it contained a layer of darker meat that was fishy-tasting. Once the darker layer was removed the salmon was okay. The key lime/mango tart was a nice finish especially when accompanied by the very good French-press coffee prepared at our table.

I was looking forward to this birthday dinner. However, since we all decided to try out the magical dining menu, our waiter was not tht interested in keeping up with taking care of us. If he hd bothered to check in on us (especially when trying to flag him down) he would have found out that we would have liked to order additional sides and more wine. The steaks were not up to the standard of most restaurants doing magical dining. My husband's chicken was great, and so were the desserts.

We dined here twice during our vacation this year. It’s hard to determine if a restaurant attached to a resort will be good or if we’d be victims of eating here when tired after traveling all day. The food was pricey but good. What caused us to think about a second round for our anniversary was our server, Marco. He was engaging and great at paying attention to detail. He went out of his way to make a special drink for my husband. It of course was perfect. He made recommendations but respected our choices. While talking with us he also paid attention to his other customers to meet their need for replacement utensils. All these things make celebrating our anniversary special and made me take the time to recommend the Venetian Chop House

FAIR WARNING... they do not have an open table kiosk there… So most of the time they lose your reservation, according to the maître d'. When we got there they had no idea who we were… And they said they might be able to get us in within half an hour… I was angry! We took an Uber 25 minutes because someone recommended this restaurant… When we got inside it was freezing cold and they sat us under a vent that blew down my back… So then we had to wait another 15 minutes for a different table. The food was average and very very salty! Even on the salad! The waiters were OK, but they acted like we were bothering them. Overall I would not recommend this restaurant.

We went for Magical Dining and were very happy we did. It was an enjoyable dining experience -- nice atmosphere, great food and top notch service. We started with an extra appetizer from the regular menu to have with our cocktails. Gives us a chance to try something besides the Magical Dining food to get a feel for the chef. We had the Lump Crab Cake which was quite good. Then, I had the Gazpacho which was excellent; and my husband had the Shrimp Cocktail which he suprisingly enjoyed (he makes steamed shrimp cocktail at home which is outstanding). My husband's Ribeye was perfectly cooked. I had the Alaskan Cod which was very good but a tad over cooked. We each had a different dessert -- both were delicious. Yann, our server, was friendly and attentive and timed the courses perfectly. We look forward to going back.
