    Love the atmosphere and especially the piped in music - Boomer heaven! Round booth was so fun - felt very posh! Server seemed new but noise level was rather loud so he was sometimes hard to understand. Cocktails were nice and strong, food was excellent. We had the Sunday Supper prix fixe menu ($39 for 4 courses) and carried the eggplant parmesan home for another meal! Calimari was fried to perfection and baked cod was melt in your mouth delicious. Turamisu made table side was a fun and yummy dessert. Our third time at this restaurant and we are so happy to have it here in Jackson Sq!

    Good drink, good salad and good calamari. But my shrimp scampi was blah - no taste in either the sauce or the shrimp. I had to keep adding salt.

    We tried this restaurant for the first time and liked it. The orechette had a kick to it and was good. My husband ordered the scallop and risotto special that looked really good. Drinks were very good. Service was excellent. Would go again.

    Excellent food. FraDiAvlo, Scallops, short ribs. Music was 60’s 70’s rock and roll. Too loud. Maybe some quiet Italian music would be good once in awhile. We’ll be back for sure! Chef Paul is a gem !

    Well, even after the restoration, which looks good, the Venetian is still just the Venetian. The problem I have is the ridiculous prices. Broccoli chicken Alfredo at $30. C’mon. is $1 worth of pasta, little cheese sauce, broccoli, and a few pieces of chicken… Crazy.! I had the pork chop with spicy vinegar peppers. The problem was the peppers were cut like matchstick, and they were just sautéed, no hint of vinegar or balsamic but the Pork chop was very nice quality. I think it was much better when the prices were half what they are today

    We had a great dinner! Tried 3 different apps, 4 different cocktails and mocktails, 3 meals, and 3 desserts. There wasn’t one thing we wouldn’t order again! Some favorites were the lavender lemonade mocktail, the affogato martini, the bruschetta, the arancini, and the chocolate cake. Anthony was our server. He was so knowledgeable about the menu, helped with recommendations for drinks and my meal, and when I realized we were pressed for time he had my sons dirt cup wrapped up to go so that he could build it at home. He was excited for a “‘make your own dessert.” We are excited to go back!

    It was our first time there and they did not disappoint. We celebrated a birthday and they were amazing. The staff and chef were friendly and made you feel really welcomed. We loved everything about The Venetian. It’s the gold standard of what service and quality should look like these days.

They don’t skimp on portion sizes so bring your appetite. And make a reservation, every time we’ve eaten here, it’s packed with many parties waiting to be seated.

    Very busy Saturday night so the service was understandably a bit slow. There was one loud talker At a table behind us that pretty much ruined our conversation for the entire meal. I can’t imagine how the people at her table felt! Overall food, ambience and service was fantastic. Will go back!

    Pasta was “pasty” in taste. Manager provided new serving of pasta quickly which was much better. However I cannot recommend it. Very disappointed that fresh pasta was overcooked. Chicken Parm was not nearly as good as what prior owners served for many years. Love the new look of the restaurant. The Garlic Knot (appetizer) was delicious and the complimentary fresh bread served was fresh and warm. Website menu does not disclose pricing. The meals were more expensive than I expected. Service was slow but okay as we were not under a time constraint.

    The good: Food was really good, we were promptly greeted, and our server was very nice. The not so good: We had two birthday celebrations which I had noted on the reservation. I thought they might prepare some dessert or acknowledgement, but no. The noise was out of control. We were seated back to back with another party of six. They were SO disruptive to the point that WE hardly spoke to one another at our table. We could not hear one another. Our server couldn’t hear us, resulting in a couple things served incorrectly. For a dinner that cost 350 dollars, the experience didn’t match. Kind suggestion: It would be nice if servers asked upfront about food allergies.

    We had a reservation on a Friday night, but there was available seating at the bar so we opted to sit there. The service and the food was excellent! We got the clams casino special to start, he had the short ribs, I had a rib eye with blue cheese crust, it was cooked perfectly. I can't wait to go back! Friendly staff and customers.

    This is our second time coming here. The first was during the holiday season last month, which I was hesitant to go because of the mixed reviews. But it ended up being great. The second was yesterday to celebrate Valentine's day. They stuck us in what I think they would refer to as their banquet room. There were two round tables in there full of older people who were shouting so loud that we felt like we were at a concert! It became much quieter once their food arrived and after one table finished and left! I asked the hostess if she could move us to another table outside of this room and she told me "no, sorry." From that point onwards, the service was terrible. Our waiter was not very attentive to us. We finished our meals at 8:05 PM, and did not leave until 8:35 PM. 30 minutes to wait for a check and cash out! Our reservations for 2 were at 6:45 PM and we left almost 2 hours later. The food, it was about the same as last time. The clams casino app special was not worth the $18 for 5 clams. Now I see why the reviews are so mixed...
