Everything was pretty great. Food was good, service was good and weather for sitting outside was actually nice. But as expected very expensive. $200 for two people. But that does include two drinks each and desert. Overall good time

I could hear servers at the maitre d stand talking and laughing. I could hear the kitchen staff. Presentation of the food was horrible. I highly doubt that a manager was there because it was a free for all. Our server was awesome!!! Very knowledgeable and professional.

We were pleased to go to an upscale restaurant after staying in for so long. I made reservations online, and we were glad to see all of the wait staff wearing masks. The food was very good, but I was a bit disappointed in the Veal Marsala, since the Marsala was so subtle as to be almost undetectable. The pear bread pudding was lovely. Our waiter was very efficient and helpful. We will recommend Venezia to friends who are looking for good food in a quiet, refined atmosphere.

No complaint about food or ambience. Service was slow. Error made on our order and they were very resistant to modify the bill to acknowledge the error. It was our anniv dinner and so my wife was embarrassed about the bill on a night that was supposed to be a joy for her. Won't return based on the service and the embarrassment

This is our "go to" Italian restaurant in Midland. The food is always exquisitely prepared and presented and ALWAYS tastes delicious! The wait staff are courteous, friendly but still professional. Their wine selection, while not the cheapest, is of the HIGHEST quality with an impressive selection of dry whites from Napa in California and France.

With current circumstances, the staff all wear face masks, and the tables are now arranged to comply with social distancing advisories. Would STRONGLY advise either calling ahead or going online to make a reservation rather than just turning up at the door.

We had a 730 reservation, we were never offered any appetizers while we waited for the waiter to take our orders, waiter didn't go over any of the dinner specials when he was asked about th redfish, he just said it was a red fish, we ordered almost 1.45hr later. The waiter paid more attention to another table then to our table, he went 3 to 1. We repeated items several times and still had to wait for them. Once are meals were delivered he never came back to the table to check on us until he delivered the bill.
The food was not the greatest, nor was the presentation.

We have always enjoyed the meals and atmosphere at Venezia Restaurant. The staff is attentive without being bothersome. There is never a rush for you to leave, so plenty of time to enjoy dessert and more drinks as a group. Thank you for having a gathering place for us in Midland.

Out waiter last night was amazing. The best service we have had in midland to date.. we can’t remember his name but he used to work at a medical office and got laid off due to Covid. This guys energy was incredible and we truly felt welcomed. An experience we will never forget.

The food, as always, was fantastic! Desserts were delicious and enormous portions with enough to take home for seconds and thirds! The service was wonderful - Tyree did a great job! And, when told that it was my wife's birthday, went and got his violin and serenaded us with Happy Birthday! Our first wine choice was not available, but Tyree's recommendation to replace it was excellent. Thanks to everyone for a wonderful evening.

Even with the shortened menu due to COVID-19, the choice was varied to say the least! My tenderloin was cooked to perfection (medium rare) and tasted wonderful. The vegetables were perfectly cooked al dente and while the Pinot Noir was not the most expensive on the menu, it was the perfect complement to the main dish. The waiter was attentive without being intrusive, and the entire staff was friendly.

Is this the cheapest Italian restaurant in town? NO! is it the best? By far I would have to say YES!

We came here with a group of friends for my birthday and our service was immaculate! Our waiter Chan was fantastic and the owner Saxton checked in on us multiple times and gave us many suggestions for wine and food. We even got spoiled with desserts from the restaurant. Such an amazing group of people that work there

Usually a 5 Star experience, this trip was disappointing. Scallops smelled fishy (they never should if fresh) and Veal Marsalla wasn't special like it usually is. Waiter was absent for too long at a time.
Still excellent. In fact, my scallops were still better than the veal. But when you smell them when they are brought to the table, you worry.
Still our number one stop for birthday and anniversary.
