Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Everything was 10/10 here. Amazing local Venetian cuisine with information from the waiters as to where everything came from. Very attentive service, would go back in a heartbeat.

We were seated outside, as requested but our time there was spoiled by the typical noisy American brat shouting off, not the restaurants fault. We tried the Historic Tasting menu which looked interesting but the promised eel with a crispy skin turned out to be...soggy eel, very disappointing. We were not impressed with the sommelier, as we discussed at length how we wanted a low abv red only for him to suggest x wine at 12.5%. Ages later, and only after I reminded the waiter of our lack of wine, the bottle arrived with an abv of 14.5%! Sent back and replaced with something more drinkable. He did eventually come over to apologise for his error. Overall, we were disappointed with this restaurant as the food remained bland, never mind the soggy eel. It was difficult to get hold of staff throughout. Oh, the other thing was the terrible music which incorporated every cliché of awful musak.More

This place, like many in Venice, is quite simply an overrated tourist trap. Ambiance is fine, quite lovely and intimate in fact. However, the food ranged from barely okay to good. There’s a heavy reliance on fried onions, which turned up in several dishes. Labelled...as caramelized, they were rather very lightly sautéed and still had too much body and a raw flavour. They were present in the traditional dish of shrimp in saor, a supposedly sweet and sour Venetian recipe. My shrimp weren’t properly cooked, but rather barely warmed through and completely raw in the centre and had none of either sweet or sour flavours that should balance the dish. Heaps more onion appeared on my partner’s liver dish, which was much more like your grandma’s version and not the way we’ve had before, slightly crisp with a good dose of wine snd a touch of sugar to balance the acid. Greyish slices of liver were plunked atop a crusted-over an overly-salted plop of polenta. Scallops were quite good, and lamb well-cooked but served with a tasteless “ carpaccio” of pumpkin, basically just thin slices of raw squash. They were served with the top bone in place, making it impossible to extract the meat from the tiny chops. Our waiter started out being attentive, but we noticed service slipped to the point we changed our minds about ordering dessert. We had to pour our own water from the very heavy bottle. The delightful busboy did most of the waiter’s work. Frankly we were insulted when our server basically intimidated us into tipping beyond the 10% stated on the menu, so we gave him another 10% for his “service”. We would not dine here again, nor would we recommend the place.More

We were very warmly welcomed when we arrived. The staff were professional, very friendly, helpful and it greatly enhanced our dining experience. Impeccable service that made you feel,welcome and valued kudos to everyone at Bistrot Venise for a wonderful evening. The food was amazing, with...inventive and creative presentation. We had the marinated sturgeon which was tender and delicious. The lasagnetta was al dente and full of flavour. The duck breast was tender, cooked perfectly and the sauce was perfect. The tarte tatin with creme fraiche was yummy. I would definitely recommend it to friends and family.More

We had an excellent experience at Bistrot de Venice! Service was wonderful and friendly, and the food was delicious. We tried the scallops, creamed cod, beef filet, ravioli and the ape maya dessert. Everything we tried was excellent. They provided a complementary amuse bouche to...start and a selection of chocolates at the end of the meal. Great wine pairing and suggestions from our server. Highly recommend!More

Dinner was 2hrs and not rushed. Staff was so attentive. On the house Amuse-Brouche before and after dinner. Orderd a mixture of traditional and historic dishes, which were prepared so well. Very expensive, but worth the experience.

Wonderful evening here at this very elegant Venetian establishment. Despite not being the absolute best food I’ve ever had in Italy, the meal was very delicious and prepared with style. We’d particularly recommend the duck! However, what made this experience 5 star in my view...was the wonderfully knowledgeable sommelier, Davide, whose knowledge of wines and local cuisine (and history) was shared with us with such passion and authenticity. Honestly, I think the best thing to do at this restaurant is ask for Davide, give him an idea as to how much much food you’d like to eat and let him guide you through some lovely Venetian tastes. It’s guy like him that make Italy so special, so do yourself a favour and forget what you think you like or want and trust the expertise of these Italian professionals. Like that you can’t go wrong! Thank you Davide - Grazie da Matera!!More
