The staff at this restaurant were really excellent. They all knew their products and all seemed to be multi-functional (the waiters repaired tables, cleaned them, and also did cash - seamlessly). Add to this some of the finest tapas I have had, and it was a really great experience. My wife and I will return on our next travels to Victoria.
Great drinks, nibbles and super staff. Service is amazing, cocktails are creative. Good price on nibbles during happy hour.
The food at Veneto has always been consistently delicious and getting happy hour prices makes it even better. I love the mac and cheese and the curried garbonzas.
I did find it a little drafty where we were sitting. Sometimes the room can be chilly.
Food is excellent. Service was very good. Really appreciate that they wait for everyone to finish their meal before clearing the table.
Definitely recommend it for the ambiance especially if you are celebrating an occasion.
A great evening of creative cocktails and sharing appies. Excellent service from Rachael.
Our Bookclub meets here for special occasions and have never been disappointed with the food nor the service from the knowledgable friendly staff. Veneto is convenient as it is a short walk from the Songhees.
Went to Veneto for happy hour and the service was excellent. The place was quite busy but our server was friendly, attentive and professional. The drinks and appies were a great price and the food was quite tasty. Loved those wings. Would definitely return!
We really love going here for food and drinks. The small plates and charcuterie boards are always amazing and exactly how we like to dine. We always sit at the bar and enjoy the service from the bartenders. They are very creative, knowledgeable talented. We’ve tried other similar spots around downtown and we always end up coming back here!
Best service ever! Great food, interesting. Wonderful drinks.
They have amazing cocktails. The best in town. Spin the wheel is always exciting and the drinks are always fabulous.
We love it Here! Always a great experience ;)
Went back a second time with a friend, and loved it! Great food, great service! Will definitely be back soon!
Always a great visit. Amazing cocktails! Spin the wheel or do the monthly trio taster to add some adventure to your dining experience. Ambiance is great for date night. Best deal in town on the dessert taster!
Enjoyed the unwind menu and the drinks! Food and service are excellent! I am going back with friends in a week time.
Always wonderful. Great food and service. Convenient location. Try daily happy hour tapas and you’ll be back for more
My friends and I always enjoy our cocktail and appy nights at Veneto. The staff are always friendly and the food and drinks are delicious. We rarely choose to go anywhere else as Veneto is always consistent with their food, drinks, service and creativity! My only critique is their dessert menu, not at par with the rest of the menu
Great food and cocktail list. Wonderful atmosphere.
Went prior to a show at the theatre. Unfortunately it took almost 25 minutes to gets our cocktails after ordering. The tapas were good once they came. The second round of drinks took long as well. This was my fourth time to Venetos and it has noticeably slipped. Overall getting drinks very slow, limited wine selection food still good but less to choose from. It's a convenient location to the theatre which is good and still a good spot of an afterwork cocktail but not somewhere I'd go for a nice dinner.
Great experience, delicious food! Need more vegan options.
A fabulous place for a girls night out! The wine list was extensive and the server was knowledgable and friendly. The menu seemed small at first glance, but everything was done VERY well and there was a lot of thought put into each dish. The portions were larger than I had expected and every single thing we tried was mouth-wateringly delicious! I would absolutely dine here again and look forward to doing so.
Always love coming to Veneto--truly one of the best spots in all Victoria--superb, creative drinks and wonderful appetizers.
First time dining there. Amazing service! Had a great evening
As always, we had a great time, with excellent food and fantastic cocktails - especially the Blue Light Experience - amazing!
Birthday treat for my husband. This was our first visit. The staff were so helpful and attentive. We had our 18 year old with us and didn't know about the age restriction but the staff were really super and accommodating. Great food and a fun place. Will definitely be back!
A fun and enjoyable setting with very good service and creative and interesting tapas. The only real downside was the noise level. Between the music and other diners, it was difficult for our party of 4 to hear each other speak.
Fantastic service, drinks and food. I will definitely be heading back on my next visit to Victoria
I fell on the slippery bamboo floor and now have a concussion. I was given prosseco which was lovely. That floor is slippery. :/
Consistently great. Wait staff very attentive yet not intrusive. Love this place
Great deals during happy hour
Veneto Tapa Lounge is a perfect place to meet for drinks and tapas. Service is excellent and their their tapas are tasty, with some offered at 1/2 price during happy hour. The house margarita was particularly good! Our server for the evening was helpful, friendly and very knowledgeable. We took her recommendations for food and drinks and were glad that we did. I would certainly recommend Venetos.
Excellent tapas - happy hour is extremely good value
Attentive service, interesting cocktails and decent tapas. However, the decor in the seated lounge area at the back completely deflated the ambiance of the whole experience. Too Dark, way to much beige/brown and no use of color to pop the room. The room looks like it was previously the hotel's breakfast area and received a (cheap) makeover. A serious reno is in order for this space. Until then, this establishment unfortunately doesn't live up to the "hip" ambiance that it's trying to achieve.
We showed up at 5:30, ordered a few Happy Hour apps and some drinks, then ordered some mains. When we got the bill, we were charged full price for the happy hour appetizers. I was there on a date, and didn't want to seem like a cheapskate and cause a fuss over an extra $20-30. Food was good.
We joined Veneto for an excellent evening of unbelievable food, great service, and EXCELLENT cocktails. I've already recommended it to a few friends :)
The food was fantastic. We shared the mussels, Korean wings and Brussels sprouts- all were flavourful and satisfying. The drinks were good- I tried the Spin the Wheel and wound up with a delightful drink. I recommend this spot for a group to enjoy.
Great place to go for Happy Hour with Half Price Appies!
Good food. Value for the money. Service was helpful.
We were able to get a last minute reservation on Canada Day so expectations were not very high. However the food (and service) far exceeded our expectations. A wide variety of items to choose although they tend to favour "spicy" items. Very generous portions at fair prices.
Sorry, I didn't think this restaurant was going to be very good, so I didn't take any pictures. This is a great little restaurant / Bar. We didn't have dinner reservations on Canada Day, so we grabbed a spot at the bar for dinner. We ordered the Duck Poutine, the calamari, and the Crispy Risotto Arancini. The food was excellent. Who would have thought, this level of food at a tapas restaurant...in a hotel lobby. The Duck Poutine was to die for. They have a huge drink menu and 14 beers on tap. This was a great find. Hope you love it as much as we did.
