Our waiter was quick, attentive and offered great suggestions. The food was amazing and well portioned. Will recommend to everyone!!
We were celebrating our anniversary with friends. We sat downstairs and it was beautiful. Our waitress was very helpful when we ordered our drinks because Venetian Moon has an extensive drink menu. Our food was delicious, from the appetizers to dessert. Great place to celebrate a special occasion!
Should've eaten downstairs, which was quieter and classier. (tables with tablecloths) We ate upstairs in a booth next to the bar. Felt like waitress was 'rushing us'. I want a relaxed pace. Coconut martini tasted 'spicy', no flavor of coconut.
Birthday dinner for a friend.
Attentive wait staff. Seated immediately and as always high quality delicious food. Fruitti DiMare was hot spicy and loaded with fresh seafood and the wife’s chicken saltimbocca was delicious.
Everything we had was delicious. Martinis were great and staff was friendly.
Very good food, excellent service and great environment.
The food was great, but the service was not. We had to constantly flag down our waitress to get service.
This was our first time visiting Venetian Moon and we were not disappointed. We had a 6:15 reservation and were seated promptly in the downstairs dining room. The waitress came and took our drink orders and they were excellent, I had the Venetian Mai-Tai and my wife the Aqua martini. We passed on apps, but enjoyed the yummy loaf of bread and dipping oil. My wife ordered the Lobster Pie with a side of sautéed broccoli, loaded with lobster chunks and delicious stuffing, which she thoroughly enjoyed. I opted for the Veal Cacciatore with homemade fusilli pasta in plum tomato sauce, it was truly as good as it gets. Finished with a cup of coffee to diminish the “glow” of the Mai-Tai. I would consider the pricing moderate for the times we live in, most entrees $20-30 and solid drinks around $15. We will be back, highly recommended!
Food was fair service was horrible. Will not be going back
Reservation was on time. No waiting. Food came out and was great! Will definitely be back
I had heard the martinis were amazing, but had no idea how outstanding the food and service is. Can’t wait to go back❤️
Food and drinks were excellent. Our a server Jim was great, very attentive.
The drinks and food were excellent and the ambiance was nice and quiet for a relaxed and intimate dining experience. We will be back!
Excellent service that went above and beyond expectations. Great selection of dishes well prepared.
Can I give the Venetian Moon 6 stars?
Fantastic service, fantastic martinis, fantastic food!
Louis was amazing! The food was so good, and the Martini’s were heavenly.
Everything was good as usual. Missed Paul at the bar but Jason was excellent
Great experience! Host was very friendly and showed us different seating options, we chose to sit upstairs which had more of a bar/lounge vibe. Our server was great and gave us a few menu recommendations as we couldn’t decide what to get. We ended up getting the arancini, eggplant, chicken pesto, and chicken vodka which were all great! I also tried the sangria which was very good. They also have a great martini menu, can’t wait to go back and try one!
Fruite de Mare was excellent! Extensive martini menu. Highly recommend the dark espresso and chocolate cream martini.
always a great time and wonderful food and service.
Luis was amazing!!! He took such great care of our large party. He made our experience fantastic! Will return for him!
We had a perfect experience for my mom’s birthday. The food was perfect, the drinks were unbelievable, and Jim took amazing care of us!
Great food, Great service. Keith was fantastic with our large party. Get the mussels fra diavolo - we ALWAYS get then, so so good.
Great food and service!
Food was OUTSTANDING!! Our server Jim was such a pleasure to talk with. My only recommendation is maybe turn down the music a little. We will be back!
We have been here quite a few times, it wasn’t as busy as they usually are which was nice. They did not have enough servers on the floor our waiter had to many tables that he forgot about us a few times but understandable. Food was delicious as usual
I love Venetian Moon! The food is amazing and the drinks are delicious. I was happy they still have dividers up separating tables, not only for safety but I enjoyed the privacy they provided. We were able to converse at a normal level.
Local gem with nice atmosphere, a very good bar menu, and delicious Italian offerings. We tried veal Marsala, chicken parmigiana and a salmon entree, and we all left with to go boxes! Caprese salad was a good appetizer but it was better last time, tiramisu dessert was great. Definitely recommend reservations if you’re going on a weekend night and you won’t be disappointed
Our favorite restaurant in the area! Food and drinks are always amazing.
Food is fantastic here, a lot of fresh made options and choices. You will not find a better drink menu.
Would prefer a paper menu again, but that's reality now.
The drinks and food were excellent! We had a great server, and we loved the atmosphere
Very good food, very good service. From Arizona we thought it was a bit pricey.
Staff was excellent, food was fantastic and martinis were perfect. Great night!
Great food, drinks, and service!
Excellent quality food choices and the martinis are excellent! Our new favorite restaurant
Great drinks good food
Just took longer than expected for food
On a whole will recommend to friends
An outstanding variety of menu choices, all of which are prepared with perfection and are gastronomic/culinary artistry . The service was excellent as usual. The decor & ambiance have a NYC “feel” with a chillaxing experience that you don’t get in the city. Five stars all around. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Great food & service! Excellent cocktails as well!
I love this place, it's a favorite for mr and my husband. We love their food and of course, their martinis. They are all so delicious! Try the strawberry coconut or mai thai ones, oh-me-oh-my!
Also, Keith is an excellent server. He's genuinely polite and doesn't pretend or try to be extra. Our drinks and food got to us quickly, and he even accommodated us to a different table after we were freezing by the A/C vent.
Overall, a solid place!
