Brought out of town friends and they loved it! Just a little too loud but overall great!
Small portions for high cost. Ordered a scallop dinner - only 5 on the plate so it was like $8 a scallop. Waitress has heavy cigarette breath. Good location though.
Crows nest has always been a great place to dine. One of the things we liked about the menu this time is that everything was not all a cart. The entrées included some sides. That was a nice change. Our waitress was great Tatiana the food was delicious. It was a great night.
The calamari was a disappointment from when we last had two years ago. The rolls were too salty. The oysters were too small and watery. Did not like the potatoes or the guber fish. The service and the rest was fine.
It was a perfect evening for my wife and I and a visiting close friend. It was our first tie to the Crow's Nest; I'm anticipating any, many returns!
Pleasant meal. Food was a tad overpriced. Selection was limited but covered the basics.
Mushroom flatbread, ahi tuna and Grouper were amazing! Liam was great!
Great place to celebrate a birthday
Great location, nice atmosphere, lots of food choices, staff friendly and very accommodating. Highly recommend.
Great food, the service was overall good this time but it has been much better in the past. The restaurant has a great ambience being right on the water and my only dislike is the parking area. Overall, it is a great place to dine and my wife and I love it!
Crow’s Nest is our favorite restaurant in Venice. We’ve been going for years snd they never disappoint. Grouper caught in the am and on our dinner plates the same night - can’t get much fresher than that! Server Andrea is the bomb! And the view? To die for.
it was one of the better meals we have had there recently.
The server was amazing and the food was excellent.
Sat outside as the weather is turning nice again. Excellent food and service as usual.
I thought our waitress was a bit rude. She may have thought she was being cute I like to bring out of town guests to the Crow’s Nest for quality food and service. I was disappointed with our experience last night.
We met friends and had lovely drinks and dinner. The service was just great and the atmosphere was so pretty and the view of the Venice Harbor was great!
The seafood pie was perfection and the sauce was one of the best I've tasted. The bone in pork chop was cooked in a way that made it very tender and the seasoning was delicious.
The menu is fancy elderly choices. The entire plate of food was so cold the butter didn't melt. The rib eye steak was very thin.
I've been to the bar downstairs and it was very comfortable and the sandwiches were great.
Excellent service. We were celebrating a birthday and made reservations. We were pleasantly surprised to see they had an early diner special which turned out to be quite nice.
Food was wonderful as always and Anthony was excellent in customer service.
First time visitor. One of the best meals I've had in years. Every aspect of this visit from service to food and ambience were outstanding and first class. Staff were attentive, helpful and friendly. Just a superb experience and I can't wait to return on our next getaway to Venice.
Beautiful view of the water. Took friend from up north and they were so impressed with the view. The food for all of us was excellent. The service was fantastic. This is our choice to bring friends to
The good: our table looked out over the water. Food was good. My steak was cooked perfectly. The bad: it took forever to get our appetizer and then even longer to get our dinner. it was not that busy there either. The waiter never bothered to ask if we wanted coffee or dessert. Not a good first time dining experience there. Probably wouldn’t go back again.
This is a very nice restaurant in a great location with wonderful views. The food was good but not great. The service was excellent.
The pricing was astronomical for the most part and the food did not live up to the the very high pricing.
We don’t mind paying premium prices for quality but the food quality was well below the pricing which was $$$$$.
We were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary. The food was outstanding & the service was too!
We both had steak, I had the filet mignon and my husband had the Prime rib special.
Delicious! Our server Andrea was attentive and made sure we were well taken care of. Great night!
I love going to this restaurant! I just moved to Florida I. March and this place never disappoints. The servers are awesome the drinks are the best and the dishes are wonderful. My Filet last night was so delicious
Delicious food and great service, with a waterfront view!
The water views are excellent. Both table service and food were very good. Dinner (and wine) prices are a bit over the top.
As always, a GREAT PLACE for a first class dining experience!!!!
Rhonda was our sever and she told us she had been there 30yrs. This speaks volume for a restaurant. It was amazing how she remembered everyone’s order without writing it down. It was a great experience from Rhonda to the food . Way to go Crows Nest!
Birthday, great service food was very tasty
Our 2bd time dining there and as expected it was amazing!! The Shrimp & Grits were yummy and my husband had the Chicken Picata, he loved it. A friend dining with us enjoyed the Walnut Crusted Salmon and I will be enjoying that time! Fabulous. Carly was our server, and she was wonderful!!
Great view. Good food & service. Friendly staff. Easy parking.
Great service and food.
We ate at the Crow’s Nest for the first time to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. We were greeted promptly, taken to a table outside with a view as requested, and seated immediately. Our server Anan was attentive, without hovering, and was helpful with menu suggestions. We both ordered the Grouper Key Largo with green beans and garlic mashed potatoes. The food was excellent and we enjoyed our view of the water while dining. We will surely return in the future for another celebratory dinner.
We thought the food and atmosphere was fantastic. Andrea took care of us and even brought us a slice of key lime pie to celebrate our anniversary. It was great relaxing and looking out over the water. A wonderful celebration dinner.
Sat on the patio/balcony it was a beautiful evening. The oysters were very good adn the early bird dinners were very nice.
Only hiccups in our evening was one entree--the salmon--was VERY undercooked (NOT safely edible) on first presentation. Of course when an entree is returned, it throws off the tempo of the meal. Oh well.
Server had to be prompted to offer a comp dessert as an apology for the cooking error. Shouldn't have had to ask?
Otherwise, LOVE this place.
