We went to this place on recommendation. The food was very fresh and delicious. The selection of vines would impress anyone. Service is also on the highest level. Fine dining! Recommend! Book in advance.

Having read the many reviews and in search of an excellent restaurant, we booked our dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday. The meal and service were outstanding. Prior to booking we checked with the restaurant about having a cake delivered from a third party supplier for the evening and this request was accommodated without hesitation. Every part of the evening was worth the price paid.

I was really looking forward to eating here because of the reviews that I read. This was supposed to be our expensive dinner in Venice, and the price was definitely expensive! The location is great and eating outside is an enjoyable experience. The staff is also very attentive but appreciate the romance of the atmosphere. I was actually impressed by our waiter's awareness and hospitality. The head waiter, Walter, seemed more rushed and unfriendly than our waiter/server. My dissatisfaction is that the food didn't justify the price so I don't think the value is there. My wife and I both ordered the four-course meal and didn't think that any of the servings were outstanding. They were definitely very good, but they didn't merit anything close to excellent. We're not foodies and are probably the least picky eaters you could imagine, but I was disappointed that the food didn't taste better (actually, the food in Venice was our least favorite in Italy). Nonetheless, the creme brulee is INCREDIBLE with the tiramisu close behind. I'd go there just to eat the creme brulee; easily the best dessert that we had in Italy. I'd go back, but I would avoid the four-course meal and order ala carte because there may be more value in that method (and order the creme brulee of course).

During my recent stay in Venice my fiancée and I visited the Bistrot de Venise for a beautiful romantic meal. The service was incredible and the food was OUT of this world!! I would strongly recommend that anyone visiting Venice should try and pay a visit.

Having read many Trip advisor reviews on Bistrot De Venise, I am happy to say it lives up to its reputation. I pre-booked for dinner and was happy to find it was located in the San Marco area near the Hotel. On arriving Walter the head waiter recommended an italian Rose Brut to start the evening, great choice. We ordered the traditional Venetian cuisine sampling menu, interspersed with the menu was complimentary dishes. The Homeade Baccala, was fantastic,
The Menu consisted of a choice of three from Hors d'oeuvres,First Course, Main Course and Dessert, you could try the six course menu.
Every course was well presented and the taste was perfect. Certainly up there with the best. The bottle of Pinot Grigio I ordered was of a very high calibre, and had an excellent wine list. To some the menu may seem a bit pricey, but in reality the quality of service, and the exemplary food makes it value for money.
